About Mary Hasson

I’m a Catholic conservative and a Fellow in Catholic Studies at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C.  While my official bio is below, what you really need to know about me is that God is my hope and family is my joy. A good run, a good book, and a good laugh make for a great day.

You’ll find my thoughts here on faith, culture, women, and family life.

Why “Words from Cana”?  Because they are words to live by: “Do whatever He tells you.”

An attorney, Mrs. Hasson is working on a book that explores Catholic women’s views on sexual morality and reproduction.  She previously co-authored a study on media ratings, published in Pediatrics (June 2011), and co-authored a leading book on Catholic homeschooling.

  3. So many prayers for young Nick…do they not count if one is not Catholic? Will continue to pray for him as I have everyday since the weekend he was injured, and will continue to ask others to do so, Christian, Catholic, or whatever….

    • Hi Erin,
      I am so glad that you have been praying—of course non-Catholic prayers are welcome. The emphasis on Catholicism here reflects the family’s faith community and the context for their deep faith. God welcomes prayers from us all, saints, sinners, anywhere in between. No one’s here to judge the worthiness of anyone’s prayers—just simply to ask for them. So keep them coming…from anyone and everyone!
