I was a very shy and sensitive child and for some reason my best friend, Annette, and I were put in different classes – hers marked “A” and mine “B.” I can still remember the first day of orientation in the school gym, sitting in the bleachers...read more

All that was once held dear in America is held in contempt and we see all manner of bedlam and anarchy on a rampage as we approach the presidential election. But, there is hope if we use the spiritual weapon Our Lady told us to use. Join me in being part of the solution: Join the Rosary Crusade for Our...read more
