Jesus gave himself up to death voluntarily

By on February 25, 2021

Proof of God’s Love

By on February 24, 2021

Merciful like the Father.  In mercy, we find proof of how God loves us.  He gives his entire self, always, freely, asking nothing in return.

Newness often makes us fearful

By on February 21, 2021

Do we know how to speak of Christ?

By on February 19, 2021

“We must obey God rather than human beings.” And they remain undeterred even when flogged, ill treated, and imprisoned. Peter and the apostles proclaim courageously, fearlessly, what they have received: the gospel of Jesus. And what about us? Are we capable of bringing the word of God into the…

Priority of life

By on February 19, 2021
