Read the Thrilling "Outlaws of Ravenhurst" Catholic Classic!

The highly esteemed Catholic book also received accolades worldwide - winning a Pulitzer Prize.

(Summary by Mary B.): "Outlaws of Ravenhurst is one of my favorite books. It is action packed and inspiring! Written by Sister M. Imelda Wallace S.L. (in 1923), this exciting story tells about a “farmer's son” returning to his true home in Scotland.

The Gordon walks into a new culture where he must choose between a royal seat beside the King of Scotland or a royal seat beside the King of Heaven. 

The Gordon shows bravery as he faces daily hardships. He shows loyalty to his family and clan. 

The Gordon meets many difficult problems in his life but his virtues and deep faith help overcome them all."

"As the son of noble parents, Aloysius (Gonzaga) had at his command the choicest food and drink and the costliest clothing. But he found no pleasure in these things. His delight was in communion with God. When he was only five years old he was sometimes found on his knees in a corner saying his prayers. To this custom of devout and persistent prayer, Aloysius remained faithful to his death... ." (Excerpt from the Life of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, pp. 54-55)

"If I do not become a Saint when I am young, I shall never become one." -St John Berchmans (He died at age 22.) St John Berchmans was appointed, conjointly with St Aloysius, to be the patron & pattern of youth, by Pius IX.  
St Agnes, Patroness of the Children of Mary (with St Philomena), was a martyr for Christ when only twelve years of age. Neither promises nor threats could shake her faith. When undergoing the hardest trial for a virgin soul, "Christ," she said, "will guard His own." Nor was she wrong. "Christ is my Spouse: He chose me first, and His I will be. He set a seal upon my face, that I might admit no love but His. He pledged my troth with the ring of faith and adorned me with the necklace of infinite beauty." A stroke of the sword united her soul forever with her Spouse.

I just went out to walk one of my dogs & as I was standing [outside] about 6 feet from the door, an at least 4 foot Cottonmouth (venomous) snake slithered slowly right underneath my front door on the cement, in our walkway area. (cont.)

...It stopped behind a large container of several 100 golf balls my sons had found from a nearby golf course over some time. A neighbor offered a gardening implement to kill it. Yet, I went to my attic & got a pellet gun, wanting More distance. (cont.)

...I loaded it up with about 15 shots & pumped it up to the max. I put glasses on... in like one QUICK motion, I moved the heavy container of golf balls & took aim, yet the snake had left! Will keep you updated with any new twists in this ongoing story.
