Question: Why don't all religious sisters wear habits?

If you were a Catholic school student decades ago, then chances are, you were taught by religious sisters. Your image of a typical religious sister, then, might be of a woman in a long habit and a veil. However, not all sisters wear a habit like this, or even any habit at all. Sisters simply dress based on the rule of their particular order.

Question: What is a mystic?

Yesterday, September 23, was the feast day of one of the twentieth century’s greatest mystics, St. Padre Pio. St. Padre Pio was an Italian Capuchin friar who was known for his great piety and the extraordinary spiritual gifts that God gave him, including the stigmata and the ability to bilocate.

But what exactly is a mystic? Do all mystics receive these amazing gifts?

Question: Why do Catholics use holy water?

Most of us cross ourselves with holy water each time we enter a church. The practice of using holy water is so common we might not give it a second thought. But it is an important gift the Church gives us that we would be remiss not to take advantage of.
