Suffering in the New Year

Herod heard John’s preaching and knew of the justice of God, yet he chose to fear his loss of reputation instead of believing in the God that John preached. His decision to “save face” in front of his friends was profoundly foolish.

Calling for A.C.T.S of Love and Care for Creation

The World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation offers “individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.” How can we pray for creation on 1 September?

The Undying Allure Of St. Clare Of Assisi

The story of Clare, with that of Francis, is an invitation to reflect upon the meaning of life and to seek the secret of true joy in God. It is concrete proof that those who accomplish the will of God and trust in Him not only lose nothing, but discover the real treasure which gives meaning to everything.

Mary, Mother of Priests: “Fatima’s 4th Secret” Revealed to Me

Last month, I caught up with a group of friends that I made during my trip to Israel last year.  It was a simple dinner and everyone was sharing about their lives and the latest happenings in church. A topic came up during our discussion but I remained quiet throughout. It was not until a few days later that I finally comprehended my silence.

What’s the Point of a Priest?
