Christianity Isn’t Just Another ‘Lifestyle Choice’

Christianity Isn’t Just Another ‘Lifestyle Choice’

As many believers can attest, Christianity is the ideal program for life. Its moral code empowers the individual and brings order to a society. Its liturgy allows for people of different backgrounds to come together as a real community. Its message of divine charity humbles the proud, lifts the poor, and heals all wounds, while its message of hope enables […]

Remember, Recount, Celebrate!

Recount to Remember!

After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. Judges 2:10 History is an accurate record of past events and experiences whether good or bad. Such experiences shape how we live today and give us a forecast of the future. When we choose not […]

But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord

Rejecting God is Not an Option

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Jos 24:15. Why will serving the Lord be […]

Reacting to Adversity

“Anna … was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.” Luke 2:36-37 Our response as Christians to tragedy, suffering, loss and the like reveal a lot about our faith and trust in God […]

What Does the Bible Say about Angels?

What Does the Bible Say about Angels?

Angels appear in the Bible from the beginning to the end, from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. The Bible is our best source of knowledge about angels – for example, Psalm 91:11, Matthew 18:10 and Acts 12:15 indicate humans have guardian angels. Angels are God’s messengers, invisible except when they assume a shape to appear before […]

Omission A Sin?

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the LORD; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.” Num. 32:23. We more easily identify with sins of commission than with sins of omission. Sometimes we even think that sins of omission are not serious, and we do not really need to do […]

The Miracles of Jesus Christ.

The Miracles of Jesus Christ

While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret. And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, he asked him to put out a […]

God’s Promises Are True

“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” Num. 23:19 None of us has been able to keep every promise we made no matter how sincere and honest we are. Sometimes it is a character […]

God Wants a Repentant Church, Not a Relevant Church

God Wants a Repentant Church, Not a Relevant Church

On a regular basis the faithful Catholic laity find themselves disconcerted and even outraged when priests and prelates display an inverted moral calculus. For example, as William Kilpatrick writes in a recent essay in Crisis Magazine, the Vatican has become a kind of sanctuary city for credibly accused homosexual predators while Pope Francis laments the presence of plastic in our […]
