Pope Francis

 

 

 

When Pope Francis visits the Philippines this January 15-19, 2015, it will be a tremendous blessing to a nation whose covenant with God has been tested in recent years due to natural disasters, like Typhoon Haiyan.

The spotlight will not be on Pope Francis, but on the towns and villages devastated by “Haiyan,” the strongest typhoon on record in the Philippines. The typhoon’s destructive path displaced four million people and destroyed over one million homes. Videos of loved ones who lost family members, sharing their stories, and hoping for mercy and compassion from the global community will be featured here on this website, leading up to the Papal visit in the Philippines, this January 2015.

‘We were having trouble conceiving after we were married in 2012. We were both very open to life, an we wanted a child to care for and love. The doctors did not have good answers for us. So our family turned to prayer for help. Thanks to a friend on facebook, David Panlilio, I found out about his devotion to Saint Padre Pio. Eventually, we started a novena to Padre Pio, praying fervently for his intercession, and that is when we saw a positive pregnancy test. The rest is history, as we now have a baby boy, who carries the name of Pio! And of course, his Godfather is David!’

High up in the Rocky Mountains, an encounter has ensued. This relational exchange of love centers around the human person, and the love found in rubbing shoulders with an unlikely cast of characters. Communal cooking, no showers, yard games, and the Mass, are a few highlights within this encounter of people, friends. The plot has been set, the cast is chosen, the setting found, and now we sit back and see how 30 young adults come to know the God made Man at Saint Paul’s Lodge, built in 1887, right here in Colorado.

What is a summit? What happens at 14,000 feet above sea level, high up in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado? We believe, an interaction occurs, a meeting of heaven and earth. The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Catholic faith, and therefore, a unique encounter occurs when Mass is celebrated up amongst the clouds.

An encounter with the divine in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The transcending reality of beauty in our world is unavoidable in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. It appears that some vistas have never been seen before. The space and encounter that one experience in this type of place is challenging to put at the feet of words. Perhaps the images in this video will allow the beauty from above transcend those words, and your heart.

As a young girl, Maria José discovered she loved to dance. When she was 12 years old, she entered a school of dance and began learning traditional Peruvian dances. She spent countless hours dancing during her adolescence. At the age of 15 she met a a group of consecrated lay women and decided that the Lord was calling her to enter this community. 

Eventually she discovered through praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament that her true vocation was to marriage and she left the consecrated life to embrace her vocation. Since then she has rediscovered her passion of dance and is now dancing Marinera and contemporary dance. She is able to give more of herself to others because dance helps her to know herself better.
