Pro-lifers, take note. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War* recently had the biggest opening weekend of any movie ever.  It has already made over 1.6 billion dollars worldwide, and if you haven’t seen it, you certainly know someone who has. This blockbuster has captivated the culture and provides a perfect opportunity to start a pro-life conversation.

Easter is a time of great joy, hope, and celebration, so why does the Church emphasize our sinfulness and great need for mercy on the Second Sunday of Easter, "Divine Mercy Sunday"? The Gospel reading on that day and Jesus's words to St. Faustina Kowalska make it clear that the connection is quite fitting and always appropriate: Jesus suffered and died for our sins so that we might receive His mercy and the joy of eternal life.

Group members sometimes share challenges in their faith or other areas of their personal lives.
