In today’s Daily Refill:
Happy feast of St. Monica! Pray for her intercession for family members who have fallen away from the faith with this prayer.
For some feast day wisdom on St. Monica’s example and how we can help fallen away friends and family, we have a great episode of Your Catholic Life with Jon Leonetti. In this episode, Jon talks to Maggie Green, about her book The St. Monica Club and how to wait, hope, and pray for fallen-away loved ones.
In the latest series of the Ave Explores podcast on Catholic Family Life, host Katie McGrady and her guests are celebrating the beautiful diversity of families and their role in the Church and exploring how each family is called to holiness and to share their faith with the world. In this episode, Katie talks to Jeannie Gaffigan about practical tips on how Catholic family life can thrive by lowering expectations and letting stressful things go to focus on health, happiness, and holiness.
Each Ave Explores series includes lots of other articles and resources. Find the whole Catholic Family Life series here including a great article about how to keep Jesus at the center of your family life with “Liturgical Living.”
