Who wants to suffer, sacrifice, and die? But who wants to have abundant life? You duped us, Lord! It is only when we lay down our lives as a sacrifice that we discover abundant life. The key to abundant life is shaped like a cross. [AUDIO]
Feat. Deacon Michael: God wants to give us life, not destroy us. The Church is like a mother pelican that feeds us from the pierced side of Christ. God sacrifices himself to give us life. (5 June 2016)
It’s not enough to say “I Love You”; we must do it. Jesus loves by serving and sacrificing. So must we. He asks His friends to walk with Him down the road of suffering. We should never fear the cross for it is the sign of True Love. (13 Sep 2015)
In the time of Noah God washed the world clean of sin. Baptism washes the Christian clean and gives each one a new name and a new identity. Sonia Singh rescues abandoned and abused dolls. God has rescued you; you are loved. Do you know it? (22 Feb 2015)
5 Days, 13 walkers, 58 miles — another successful walking pilgrimage! We found that forming community was hard work. Only the Holy Trinity forms community easily because God is not afraid to give. The family images the Trinity, and so does the parish. These lead us to realize that we are welcomed into the Heavenly family of God himself. Do not be afraid to give; the Father gives so much more in return.
Adam and Eve were offered a choice between Life and Death. They rejected God’s will and cut themselves off from life. But God didn’t give up on us. In another garden Jesus said, “Not my will but yours be done.” He showed that Love is stronger than death. Easter means God has given us another chance. We can “fake our death” by drowning our sins in the baptismal water. Christ is Risen!
