The Mass Rocks of IrelandA gift to us becomes a gift to you!
Christendom College is a robust and seriously Catholic Liberal Arts College nestled in the Shenandoah Valley in Front Royal, Virginia. Their Principles magazine is a great, and free, look at Catholicism in the current culture and prescient in its content. Christendom is worth a serious look as you ponder your child’s future education. This video came to us as subscribers to Principles, and we found it so moving, particularly in this time of pandemic, that we wanted to share it with you as permanently as possible, instead of in a blog or social media post that got pushed to the bottom of a page. Be sure to read our text beneath the video to make sure you get more of what Christendom has to offer, and to read the poem Dr. O’Donnell recites.

This week the Sons of Thunder ask Jesus a peculiar question, while first practically demanding He grant what they ask. Jesus died for us and in this exchange foretells the Apostles’ – and our – opportunity to serve with Him – to die for others.
Are we ready for that? Do we know what that means? How can we help ourselves and our loved ones recognize that and be who we are supposed to be and do what we are supposed to do?
That’s what we explore this week.
All these questions in one of our shortest TWMWUs ever. But still with lots of resources and a simple activity.
