Into the Light

In light of the current issues confronting the Catholic Church- Now is the time. What the world needs is not another person saying that they love Jesus.  What the world needs is for you, for me, to be consumed by love. When Jesus said, “Come, follow me…” He didn’t mean simply just say that you…

Saying Goodbye…

…to myself. To my preferences. To comfortability. To needing to know all the answers. Because Jesus is the one thing that is needful. Jesus is the one we seek when we long for happiness. It is Jesus that we find when nothing else satisfies us. (thanks JPII)  “She had a sister named Mary, who sat…
