Like the gardener of the Gospel story who pleads for one more year to make a tree fruitful, so we are called to try new approaches on our path to holiness. See this package of resources from our partner, Catholic News Service.
Ways to accompany hurting people: A spirituality
When all our efforts fail, we can feel disheartened and surrender hope. But David Gibson suggests we consider God’s ways and let go of our self-sufficiency. If we start to listen in prayer, we will be surprised.
God says yes to our biggest questions
Will I be happy? Will I be loved? Am I capable? Am I worthy? These are the questions college students face, and a young campus minister helps them to hear God while walking with Christ to his cross.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
