Series on the Sacraments Part 4 – Penance

 Confession is one of the greatest proofs of God’s love for us. Even though we crucified Him, denied Him, and didn’t follow His laws, He still waits for us every day in the confessional box, waiting for us to repent in order to show us His mercy. He takes into great consideration the fact that […]

War on Syria – A Way to Open Our Eyes

[ 1 ] September 8, AD 2013 |

 In our world today, Syria is the focus of everyone’s attention. The thought of war escalating strikes fear in our eyes, and we pray for mercy… but maybe that’s what we need.   When we face the prospect of war, we are likely to become more fervent. We pray more, we look to heaven and sometimes even prepare for […]

Sins, Despair, and the Love of God

[ 3 ] August 29, AD 2013 |

Everyone knows it’s easy to pray for material things. Cars, houses, money, you name it, it’s been prayed for.

Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows

[ 2 ] July 10, AD 2013 |

One of my favourite devotions concerning Our Lady is “The Devotion of the Seven Sorrows.” Why is this?

Our Lord told Blessed Veronica […]
