Did you ever want to stop the clock, turn the hands back, or move them forward? When you're way late, what if you could get two hours back or at least stop the clock for a while! You're losing by two touchdowns with one minute left in the fourth ... More

"The eye is not satisfied with seeing nor is the ear filled with hearing." —Ecclesiastes 1:8

Few people would dispute the fact that the book of Ecclesiastes is the most depressing book of the Bible. It begins: "Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!" (Eccl 1:2) It ends: "Vanity of vanities, says ... More

"Add nothing to His words, lest He reprove you, and you be exposed as a deceiver." —Proverbs 30:6

When the Bible uses the phrase, "God's words," it does not refer only to the Bible. The Bible refers to itself as "the Scriptures," that is, the written Word of God. "God's words" include the Scriptures, and also the authoritative teaching of ... More

Mother Church - Pope Francis, Shepherd of Truth

CAN'T DO IT ALONE
... One does not become Christian by oneself, that is, through one's own effort, autonomously; neither are Christians made in a laboratory, but they are created and they grow in the faith within that great body which is the Church. More

"My mother and My brothers are those who hear the word of God and act upon it." —Luke 8:21

Luke 8:21 is one of the most amazing promises ever made. We can actually become mothers, brothers, and sisters of Jesus, that is, of God, by hearing God's Word and acting on it (see Mt 12:50). However, few people, even Christians, receive this ... More

Proverbs 3:27-34 | Psalm 15:2-5 | Luke 8:16-18

"No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel basket or under a bed; he puts it on a lampstand so that whoever comes in can see it." —Luke 8:16

I'm sitting before the Blessed Sacrament reposed in the tabernacle. This church is not my parish. I didn't know where the tabernacle was located. So I looked for the burning light inside the sanctuary lamp. Once my eyes located the lamp, I knew ... More

Ten Commandments of Intercession

Intercession may be the ultimate ministry in God's plan of salvation. Jesus forever lives to make intercession for us (Heb 7:25). He lived a simple life in Nazareth for thirty years and had a public ministry for three years. And now He has been interceding for us for almost two thousand years. That may tell us something of the inestimable importance of intercession.

"The reign of God is like the case of the owner of an estate who went out at dawn to hire workmen for his vineyard." —Matthew 20:1

The Lord said: "The harvest is good but laborers are scarce" (Mt 9:37). This is an unusual statement because in our times hundreds of people apply for one job. Moreover, the harvest is the best time to work. Harvesting is more appealing then ... More

"But some fell on good soil, grew up, and yielded grain a hundredfold." —Luke 8:8

The Lord promises we can receive His Word to bear fruit a hundredfold. This is like saying a thousand dollars will turn into one hundred thousand dollars, which is an astronomical increase. Most Christians believe God's Word will help, bless, ... More
