Welcome !

Greetings to all who love to wander along the paths of the Holy Scriptures! The purpose of this blog is to share some of the insights of ordinary Catholics who have begun to delve into the mysteries of the Sacred Scriptures. Hopefully you will find these reflections inspiring and insightful. We are faithful to the Church, but we are not theologians; we intend and trust that our individual reflections will remain within the inspired traditions of the Church. (If you note otherwise please let me know!) Discussion and comments are welcome, but always in charity and respect! Come and join us as we ponder the Sacred Scriptures, which will lead us on the path into His heart, which "God alone has traced" Job 28:23.

Father Flanagan, Servant of God

"We are humbled and overjoyed by Archbishop Lucas' acceptance of our petition to examine the heroic virtue and sanctity of Father Flanagan."  Steven Wolf, president of the Father Flanagan League Society of Devotion.

This is the official news release from the Father Flanagan League shared with us by Sharon Nelsen, who has been privileged to be a part of the effort to promote the cause of Father Flanagan, Servant of God.   According to this release sent by Steven Wolf, "The mission and purpose of the Father Flanagan League is to is to educate and inform all people of the heroic virtue and sanctity of Father Flanagan's life and his mission as mentor and protector of youth, and spread devotion of his example throughout the world."  And the work continues:  "We must remain involved and working closely with the Church every step of the way and ultimately it is our responsibility to meet the financial needs of the effort to ensure the administrative and logistical aspects of this process remain in full operation for the duration."  (FFLSD).
