A Life Lived Well

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

Welcome! I am Irish, Catholic, and 100% pro-life. This blog is mostly just a place where I just collect photos and quotes that inspire me, but I also sometimes post about abortion and other topics I'm passionate about. If you want to contact me, I answer any questions I get if they're asked respectfully, or my email is allw.eire@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by.

You know that one person you respect, that does what you want to do, that kills it at life? Take that person out to lunch or coffee. Ask them a few questions and then listen until they stop talking.

Every time I felt my broken heart turn my feet to the left or the right, I heard His firm, steady voice remind me, “You are not alone. I am showing you the path. Follow me.”

Time is the most precious gift in our possession, for it is the most irrevocable. This is what makes it so disturbing to look back upon the time which we have lost. Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering. Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.

We have an obligation to read aloud to our children. To read them things they enjoy. To read to them stories we are already tired of. To do the voices, to make it interesting, and not to stop reading to them just because they learn to read to themselves. Use reading-aloud time as bonding time, as time when no phones are being checked, when the distractions of the world are put aside.

A whole new generation of Christians has come up believing that it is possible to ‘accept’ Christ without forsaking the world.

You that have ability, and have talents, devote yourselves to God’s cause. Give yourselves up to His ministry. I would to God there were more of those who are successful in professions, men who either in medicine or law would attain eminence, who would consecrate their talents to the ministry.

Don’t date when you feel ready to be someone’s girlfriend. Date when you’re ready to find your spouse.

That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.
