Rita reminds us to give thanks every day

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful reminder to all of us of the importance of expressing gratitude in our lives. Two years ago, after my daughter and her three children moved in with us after leaving Wyoming, we were blessed to be able to have them share Thanksgiving with us for the first time in many years. Our extended family on my husband Gordy’s side was gathering at our house for the celebration that day. As I was finishing putting the meal together, my 7.5-year-old granddaughter, Faith said, “Grandma, I think before we eat, we should each say what we are thankful for.” I looked at her and said, “Faith, that is a great idea!” (Out of the mouth of babes!)

Usually, the family gathers around the table before the meal begins and says the traditional Catholic meal prayer, “Bless us oh Lord, and these thy gifts, etc.” and then everyone gets down to the eating.Read More

What the Cross Means to Me

Walking around the halls of St. Anthony’s, you’ll see a lot of crosses and a lot of crucifixes. Every guest room has at least one, as do our meeting rooms. You can’t get away from them, and for those who aren’t used to seeing them, their appearance can be sometimes jarring and even disturbing.

Jesus is love and kindness and gentleness. Why are you showing him so sad and in pain? Why would we use a depiction of torture and death for a Gospel of joy and hope?

Because Jesus conquered death. What his enemies saw as a humiliating, torturous death, we as Christians remember as the moment Jesus saved and redeemed us. He made it mean something very different.Read More

  • St. Anthony’s is a very warm, welcoming and safe haven. I love to leave the noisy world we live in and come into a world of silence. We need this time to get our focus back and become rooted again in our faith, our journey.

  • I always feel truly welcome at St. Anthony's. You all are so hospitable. The beautiful surroundings in and outside makes prayer easy. I'm going home refreshed and renewed.
