Celebrating the Beauty of the Catholic Tradition

This page is still under construction. Please be patient with me :-)

God Bless You! Welcome to Mystic Rose's Homepage. This site is dedicated to exploring and celebrating the joyful, holistic and mystical aspects of the Catholic Tradition.

Perhaps some of you think that words such as "celebrate", "joyful" and "holistic" do not belong in the same sentence with "Catholic". This is understandable because for one reason or another (I haven't figured out why), these aspects of the Catholic faith are seldom if ever taught, so even the faithful are generally unaware of them.

Perhaps you are a "cradle Catholic", who went to Catholic school or received some other official religious instruction (Catechism class, CCD, etc.). Believe it or not, there is still probably a lot you don't know about your own faith! Yes, even if you attended Catholic schools from kindergarten through college, you were probably not taught about the stuff you will find on this web site!

This is a terrible pity, one which I wish to rectify.

If you are not Catholic, please don't leave; you are most welcome to browse here. If you want to know more about Catholicism this is an excellent site for you. You'll probably learn things here that your Catholic friends don't even know!


When complete, you will be able to browse the following features:
