Pope Francis continued his catechises on the Church as mother during this Wednesday’s general audience in St. Peter’s Square on Sept.10. Throughout the entire address, the pope constantly reiterated that the concept of mercy is at the crux of both the Gospels and the teaching of the Church. He also challenged Christians to let go of fear to embrace the most desperate in our society just as Christ did.
Christians must exercise mercy because we have been shown mercy “God has sent His Son! God has made Himself man to save us, that is, to give us his mercy. Jesus says it clearly, summing... Read More
Just look at those biblical characters who we raise up as examples of faith today. In their own time, these paragons, who obeyed God in their personal lives, were considered quacks and for good reason. What would you think about a fellow like Noah who built a huge ship, far from any large body of water?

Society today seems to be going mad, if only they had faith in something positive. Religion, fete, fantasy or something similar. .
Its amazing how compliments or atmosphere can change a whole persons attitude towards everything. Its like you become what you surround yourself with. I lost faith in religion until I started seeing things I had never in my life witnessed before, right at the time where my whole life collapsed and even my own family seemed to turn on me. I, myself have always been a very positive person and it's pretty hard to crack someone who can paste a fake smile even... Read More
Even on bleak days
there are certain facts that I stand on
I am alive,
not living on the street
but in a large old, quirky house
with acres of gardens, trees and meadows.
I am still married after almost 35 years
with 9 healthy, successful adult kids and 5 grandkids
loved by my family and God,
even if I drive them crazy with my eccentricity
I have a computer,
two hands with all my fingers to type
and time to write for the first time in three decades.
reasons to rejoice
reasons that... Read More
No matter what our occupation, we tend to think that our work, our agenda is more important, more pressing than those around us. This is especiaaly true for parents surrounded by the clammer of childish requests and demands. It is almost in our nature to let ambition and drive push other people, espeilly little people, to the fringes of our awareness while we toil in an isolated bubble of self-importance.Yet if we hope to nurture our children's innate spirituality, we must treat them with respect, as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. such an attitude takes a conscious decision because...
