Janice Carbon, LCSW (as well as we at Faith and Good Counsel:) wants everyone to be “fully alive”, and she presents her first book teaching us how to do just that.
Janice has been a guest several times on Catholic Community Radio on the Wake Up Louisiana morning show, and a previous episode of Faith and Good Counsel. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in her private faith-based practice in Metairie, Louisiana, and is true treasure to the mental health profession. Janice is also a frequent guest on Focus TV. Find out more about Janice’s good work here and here.

Also on this episode, Mary Wallace and I discuss our Lenten pilgrimage, the awesome story and example of St. Gemma Galgani, as well as aspects of Mary’s research on Catholic women in places of leadership in the secular workplace, how we put our faith in action within our work, and how our faith calls us to accountability.
Mother Teresa’s United Nations Prayer
(Composed for the UN International Year of the Family)
Heavenly Father, you have given us a model of life in the Holy Family of Nazareth. Help us, O loving Father to make our family another Nazareth where love, peace and joy reign. May it be deeply contemplative, intensely Eucharistic and vibrant with joy. Help us to stay together in joy and sorrow through family prayer. Teach us to see Jesus in the members of our family especially in their distressing disguise. May the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus make our hearts meek and humble like His and help us to carry out our family duties in a holy way. May we love one another as God loves each one of us more and more each day, and forgive each other’s faults as You forgive our sins. Help us, O loving Father to take whatever You give and to give whatever You take with a big smile. Immaculate Heart of Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us. St. Joseph, pray for us. Holy Guardian Angels be always with us, guide and protect us. Amen.
