One of the best ways to learn how to write well is to write a lot, even though some of it will not be great. Write every day. Also, I would recommend that they read good fiction. Reading good fiction is almost as important as learning how to write well.(less)

“Love means to love that which is unlovable; or it is no virtue at all.”
G.K. Chesterton

“The duty of the moment is what you should be doing at any given time, in whatever place God has put you.

You may not have Christ in a homeless person at your door, but you may have a little child.

If you have a child, your duty of the moment may be to change a dirty diaper.

So you do it.

But you don't just change that diaper, you change it to the best of your ability, with great love for both God and that child....

There are all kinds of good Catholic things you can do, but whatever they are, you have to realize that there is always the duty of the moment to be done.

And it must be done, because the duty of the moment is the duty of God.”
Catherine Doherty

“The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.”
G.K. Chesterton
