Blog inspired by religious

Ash Wednesday is making its appearance next week so our Lenten journeys will begin.

To enlighten, motivate and inspire our Lenten journeys … These are a few blogs that I regularly love to visit.  They are  Catholic blogs by Sisters and Priests that may help you too grow spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally. These blogs are all of variety of backgrounds, focusing on prayer, reflections and photographs are shared too.
