Do you ever feel the excitement for your Catholic faith fading out a bit? Maybe you’ve noticed you’re beginning to simply go through the motions of your faith life without that zeal you once had. Or, maybe you’re in that dry desert stage of your relationship with God.

If you thought, “Yup, that’s me,” don’t be so sad,  you’re just in need of some Catholic Caffeine!

Here are 10 Catholic treasures that are worth “googling” to help a momma out in her time of need, in no particular order.

1) Surprised by Truth by Patrick Madrid

Girl, I’m tellin’ you. This is a gem. An easy read that’ll have you falling in love all over again with this One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. (PS: This is my go-to gift for people that are curious about the Faith.)

2) “Lord I Need You” by Matt Maher

Not only is this song goooood, it’s written by a fellow Catholic! We gotta support those Catholic musicians. All of his albums are wonderful for you and your kids. Check ’em out.

3) The Fourth Cup talk and book by Scott Hahn

Blow yo mind. This will remind you/teach you just how deep and craaaazzzyy awesome our faith is. It’ll have you throwing your hands up in the air ’cause you just don’t care how weird you look ’cause, dang. And, it’s Scott Hahn. What else do you need?!

4) Novena to Mary Undoer of Knots

Our Lady: all she wants to do is bring you closer to her Son. This novena will do that for you. You’ve got an impossible problem? Hand it on over to her, girl.

5) The Lamb’s Supper by Scott Hahn

Scott Hahn. Mass. Boom.

6) Daily Mass

There is something so intimate about Daily Mass. It’s usually a small-ish number of people there and knowing that you don’t “have to be there” makes your presence in front of Jesus so special.

7) Christ is the Answer podcasts, Fr. John Riccardo

Ho-ly. Spi-rit. Moment. Every single talk. Listen to while cooking, doing the dishes, laundry, whatever it is; you’ll thank yourself for tuning in to this blessing of a priest. Find his talks all neatly put together by subject.

8) Theology of the Body by St. John Paul ll

Learn how beautiful the simplicity of being human truly is with TOB.

If you don’t have the time to read it all, listen to some talks about it … like Fr. John Riccardo’s.

9) Real Life Catholic video series by Chris Stefanick

Wonderful thing to watch as a family! This series is wonderfully done. Great quality, entertaining and full of the Truth.

10) “I Shall Not Want” by Audrey Assad

Another inspiring Catholic artist. Her voice will transport you to the clouds of Heaven.

11) Any Mother Angelica talk

(Oops, I added an extra. Bonus nugg.) Do you know Mother Angelica? Make her your best friend. She’s not only hilarious, but feisty and has a way of delivering God’s message that is just so endearing. Her videos are available on EWTN.

What’s on your list of Catholic Caffeine?!
