“Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”~St. John Paul II

Happy birthday, St. John Paul II!🇻🇦💛

The NCCW received an apostolic blessing from Pope John Paul II in 2000 to celebrate our 80th anniversary! Can you believe we’ve already reached 100 years of NCCW?!

Getting our flowers ready for sale tomorrow morning at St.Cecilia. 05/02/2021 Thank you for sharing the many ways in which you celebrated NCCW’s 101st birthday and keep celebrating!  Keep up the momentum until we can be together to celebrate our 101 years of service to the Church and Society. 


The National Council of Catholic Women celebrates the feast day of our patroness, Our Lady of Good Counsel, on April 26th.

The story of the Our Lady of Good Counsel image dates back to 1467 when pilgrims witnessed a miraculous image descend from the sky in the little town of Genazzano, Italy. The image was accompanied with a beautiful melody, and came to rest on the wall of a partially-constructed church to be dedicated to the Mother of God. The painting above is based of of this original image, which still hangs in the original church and has stood the test of centuries.

Since that time, the fresco has been said to have been the cause of countless healings and other miracles. In the image, it is said that Mary is pondering the words of the prophet Simeon, that a sword will pierce her heart. Mary looks down at the Christ child, seeming to seek his counsel, but the little Jesus looks up to his mother, with his hand on her heart, directing us to look for counsel and guidance in his Mother.

On this special feast day for the National Council of Catholic Women, we pray the prayer of Our Lady of Good Counsel, trusting that Mary will be with us throughout our lives to provide guidance during all of life's trials.

NCCW Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom
You have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus,to be our guide and counselor.

Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life
and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving leaders of the Church,

Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.

May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation,
and compassion for all God’s Children.

May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God
and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.

Lenten Reflection Week 5: Revelation of St. Bridget of Sweden


🎉H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y🎉 NCCW! March 4th is the official birthday as it is on that date in 1920 that the U.S. Bishops called the first national meeting of Catholic women. We are happy to share a list of 101 words from the Superior DCCW describing what NCCW means to them to celebrate!



Are you looking for a way to revitalize your Lent? The NCCW Spirituality Commission has developed a 2021 NCCW Lenten Calendar that centers around donating food/pantry items to those in need. Set aside each day's suggested pantry item or complete the suggested act of service, and then donate your items to a food bank the week of Easter!

We are including both PDF and Word versions of this calendar below--feel free to customize the calendar to fit your own Lenten commitment!

Ash Wednesday is finally here, and thus the beginning of Lent!

Ash Wednesday reminds us that we are not immortal and to live every day as if it is our last, fervently praying to the Lord for mercy and forgiveness.⁠

Lent is the path to the cross. It's our chance to deny ourselves and ready ourselves to carry it. We journey to the cross of Good Friday, but our true destination is the Easter resurrection.

Books By and About Female Saints | Blessed is She 01/24/2021

Books By and About Female Saints | Blessed is She

Books By and About Female Saints | Blessed is She There are countless works that have been composed by holy women. Here are some of my favorite books by and about female Saints!


Walking With Purpose

Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will come to all people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.//Luke 2:10-12

Wishing all of our friends a blessed and Holy Christmas Day! Praying that we each take a moment to pause and kneel at the manger of our newborn King!


Walking With Purpose

New month, new Marian virtue! Divine Wisdom. Let's break this down.⁠

DIVINE: 1) relating to, or coming from God or a god. 2) very good.⁠

WISDOM: 1) knowledge that is gained by having many experiences in life. 2) the natural ability to understand things that most other people cannot understand. 3) knowledge of what is proper or reasonable; good sense or judgment.⁠

Mary, who spent time in the Word, was also the one in whom the Divine and Eternal Word lived. Let that sink in for a minute, and then ask...⁠

How can the Divine Word live in me?⁠

When we carve out intentional time and sit with God’s Word, we enter into what is known as passive prayer; a prayer that God does in us. This is the prayer that transforms our life and sanctifies the soul, changing our vision. Like Mary, we begin to see with God’s eyes, hear with God’s ears, and think with God’s mind.⁠

Lord, bless us with Divine Wisdom and guide us in all our ways!⁠

Have you ever heard of the O’ Antiphons? Here is a graphic explaining these beautiful antiphons that are sung at Vespers starting tomorrow and going through Dec 23rd. They are so rich with symbolism and help us to anticipate the birth of Christ as we continue to prepare these last few days of Advent!  ⁣

O’ Come O’ Come Emmanuel! ⁣

Am I not here, who is your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything. //Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Deigo

The Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary commemorates the story of Mary as a child in the temple being dedicated to doing and living the will of God.

What will you do today to live as the Blessed Virgin lived?


Great idea!
