“Let Me See, Lord”

When things are dark, to see things anew, sometimes we need to just ask the Lord, “Let me see.”


Compassion Passion

Our own weaknesses and suffering can be the gateway to greater compassion and mercy for others.


God IS Mercy, Mercy is God

A special Holy Year of Mercy will begin on December 8 with the biblical theme, “Be merciful just as your Father is merciful.”

Master of Miscommunication

Ever assume that someone just doesn’t have your best interests at heart? Ever been surprised that someone thought this of you?


Moving On

Once healed, we need to move on. Otherwise, it’s akin to putting the cast back on a healed bone. We’ll remain hobbled and disabled!


Exalt: To Glorify or Elevate Something

To Save or Not to Save

A speeding car is about to hit a friend. Wouldn’t you yell “Watch out!” to save their life? Suppose the danger was spiritual? What would you do?

Breath of Life

The Holy Spirit brings new life to our lives. He renews us. He truly makes all things new. Try calling on the Holy Spirit you renewed life.


Our Body: Temple for the Holy Spirit
