He's abusive, she is making a mistake!

My friend is reconciling with an abusive boyfriend. How can I help her avoid this mistake?

The dynamics of abusive relationships are not always clear for the person involved. Often they make excuses or misinterpret violence, possessiveness, or anger as an expression of love. That is why only professionals trained in this field can have successful interventions with both the abuser and the victim.

I am sick of cleaning up my co-worker’s dirty dishes – I am not the office maid

Q: One of my coworkers keeps leaving dirty dishes on the counter or in the sink of our lunchroom. We have a dishwasher, but he never seems to be able to get the dishes into it. I’m sick of picking up after him, but I can’t stand the sight of the dishes after a while. How do I handle this?

A: How about offering him the standard grocery checkout options: Paper or Plastic?

Nobility for Christ

A Message of HOPE

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” These words of hope articulate Blessed Teresa’s mission, when she was called by Jesus to “serve the poorest of the poor and live among them and like them” in the slums of Calcutta, India. For her, it was more than just giving them food to eat and clothing to wear. It was about making her fellow sisters and brothers feel loved no matter how appalling they may have appeared or in what squalor they lived. She spread a message of hope that they, too, are children of God.
