"I love the zeal Jean puts into her posts, especially when it comes to the prolife movement."
"Jean of Catholic Fire...provides so much informative content. She posts about pro-life issues and events, what happened 'on this day', biographies of saints, prayer intentions, and lots more each day.

It must be her strong faith and trust in God, as well as her love, shining through her posts, that inspire me."
