white

Religion tends to be a touchy subject for some people, but one church in Virginia is pushing the limits by going nude!  The White Tail Chapel decided that it would be a good idea to give churchgoers the option to show up naked because wearing clothes in the Lord's home was "pretentious."

Oh boy, as if the peace exchange wasn't awkward for those with sweaty palms as is!

What the Catholic church needs is more vaginas!

My husband and I grew up in Roman Catholic families who never missed Sunday mass. We continued this tradition when the kids were young and agreed that they should receive every Sacrament that's required by the Catholic Church. Also, they attended religious education until they received Confirmation. We did all of this because we strongly believe in the basic principles of the Catholic Church and feel that its teachings provide our kids with a solid moral foundation. 

But with time, our family has become part of the growing number of "Cafeteria Catholics" who have left the Church but choose to retain certain aspects of the Catholic faith.

Lo que daría porque mi abuelo hubiera podido tener un "chip" que le regresara la vista

Mi familia y yo, nunca nos imaginamos que la palabra invidente, nos marcaría emocionalmente a todos, por el resto de nuestras vidas. Jamás pensamos que dentro de nuestra historia familiar tuviéramos que enfrentar, en algún momento, una situación tan lamentable, como la pérdida de la visión de alguno de nosotros. Pero así fue…un día mi adorado abuelo, dejó de ver los hermosos colores que conforman este mundo, para quedarse por el resto de sus días, en una completa y dolorosa oscuridad. De la noche a la mañana, mi querido abuelo, se tuvo que adaptar a dejarse guiar por un bastón, a ir tocando los objetos para reconocer dónde estaba, a escuchar la televisión en lugar de verla y a que alguien más le leyera sus periódicos del día.

Una mujer de 30 años murió mientras corría maratón de Londres

Estaba a punto de finalizar los 42 kilómetros de la prueba, cuando una mujer de 30 años se desvaneció el domingo pasado durante el maratón de Londres. Según CNN, la mujer corría para ayudar económicamente al grupo Samaritanos, una organización benéfica dedicada a dar atención a personas con problemas emocionales, pero justo a pocos metros de finalizar la carrera, se desplomó y ya no pudo ser reanimada por los médicos que la atendieron.

Cristo se dejó ver en una tostada ¿Lo crees? (VÍDEO)

Dicen por ahí,  "que uno ve lo que quiere ver" pero en este caso, no estoy tan segura de que este dicho se aplique a lo que ocurrió con los empleados de la cafetería de un hospital traumatológico, quienes se mostraron sorprendidos al encontrar en una tostada la supuesta cara de Cristo. Y es que, aunque muchas veces puedo ser un poco escéptica, a mí me parece que esta vez, la imagen que aparece en la pieza de pan, es muy similar a la que todos conocemos de Jesús.

5 things to think about giving up for Lent

Ash Wednesday is tomorrow and once again, it's time to start thinking about what we'll give up for Lent. For some people, it's easy to decide. Personally, I've always had a really hard time picking out what I'm willing to give up for a whole 40 days.  A  lot of factors go into the decision: How stressed do I feel like I'm going to be in the next few weeks? What do I have to take care of? Is there anything that will prevent me from fulfilling my commitment?

After all, Lent is important to many of us and I'm always determined not to quit halfway through! So in case you need a little help, like me, I narrowed down the options with a list of possible items to give up, in the order that I perceive to be easiest to hardest:
