We have resources that will help enhance our users knowledge and appreciation of the deeper underlying spirituality related to some of the popular devotions of the Catholic faith.â? The resources also include daily reflections on faith and mercy, as well as a space for users to write in prayer petitions for the Society of the Infant Jesus to intercede on their behalf.
