Footprints in the Sand

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
And across the sky flashed scenes from my life. 
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints, 
One belonged to me and the other to the Lord. 
When the last scene of my life flashed before me, 
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

There was only one set of footprints. 
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
And saddest times in my life. 
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.

May is the Month of Mary

“Why do Catholics worship Mary?” is a question we may hear from Protestants.  How would you answer this question?  First, Catholics do not worship Mary.  Worship and adoration by right belong to God alone: Father, Son & Holy Spirit.  Mary and the saints, on the other hand, are venerated and loved by our invoking their intercessions with God and imitating their virtues.
By Mary’s Assumption, we have a mother in heaven who is always with us. Mary is the mother of God because she is the mother of Jesus, who is divine.  She is also our mother because Jesus says so himself.
