I love it!

An Irish Catholic lass, Catherine Wiley, meets the love of her life in London and marries him.  Like so many Catholics at that time, she had left the practice of the faith but after the birth of her first child, she returned.  Eventually, she and her husband bought a country house in Walsingham without a clue that before the Reformation, it had been a friary and place of pilgrimage.  They were the first Catholics in that house since the Reformation.

Read the rest. Again - an incredible example of what God can do through a lay person who is fully engaged in their professional work as a disciple.  Building churches in Cambodia?  Sure.  Caring for Romanian orphans?  Absolutely!

But as Catherine realized: "All these little things I had been doing were stepping stones. I began to realise that our company was God-given. Because I had this powerful company I could get things done."

One thing led to another and after the birth of her first grandchild, Catherine founded the Catholic Grandparents Association in Ireland in 2009. 14,000 people attended its launch. She spoke at the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin.

And now she is getting invitations from groups and dioceses all over the world including New York.  Imagine:  Formation and support for grand-parents as natural evangelizers.

"The faith of our forefathers is hanging in the balance, especially in the western world. Grandparents have a special role to play in passing it on to their grandchildren. If we don’t act now, it may be too late, as quite often our own children have little knowledge of the faith. I truly believe that grandparents are being called at this moment in history."

PS. Earlier this week, I was asked to read and write a supportive word for a new book written by John and Teresa Boucher on how grand-parents can pray for their grown children:  Praying for the Our Sons and Daughters, and will be published by The Word Among Us Press. It is a real gem: full of spiritual depth, lived experience, practical, and beautifully written.  Check it out.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
