Faith that is Believable

We are about to conclude an event-filled year with its combination of hope and preoccupation on a global level.  And a “year of faith” has just begun, one that Benedict XVI hopes will arouse “in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction”.

DMA offers some reflections on the urgency of giving depth and credibility to the faith today. "Even we, consecrated women, sometimes run the risk of ...

Women for Communion

"How beautiful it is, Lord, to be together and to love one another as you love me", we sing in our liturgical assemblies. We know that the beauty of living together can be rhetorical if it does not refer to the gospel

Remembering – Living the Prophecy

I have the joy of introducing a theme that I hold particularly dear in my heart. Remembering and prophecy is the theme that Da Mihi Animas intends to propose for the year 2012.
