8/04/16 - Announcing our 115 millionth website hit
...since beginning this service in 2004!

About Us

Our principal service is to offer a Daily Reflection on pertinent subjects. This website began in 2004 and will continue as long as materials are available and funding permits. The weekday Reflections cover a variety of simple living topics and the weekend writings include homilies and other sacred issues. A variety of essays and poems appear here as well. I hope you find these and the other writings offered on the website beneficial. Peace, Fr. Al Fritsch, S.J.
