After receiving my first Communion at age 11, I would not return to the Catholic Church for nearly twenty years. All of that changed this last Easter when, after many struggles, hurts and pains, I returned to full communion with the Church of Jesus Christ.
Thoughts For Today
What do taxes and the tree God planted have to do with each other? There is a saying I love to tell people, “Long before Zacchaeus needed it, God planted that tree.” Because God knew one day that small Zacchaeus needed to see the Son of God.
An ever-encroaching darkness has pervaded our landscape, and hatred of Christians has reached unparalleled proportions.
There are no ranks among the victors over death for libertines, religious freethinkers, and those who value pride and power over meekness, humility and love. Those who raise the banner of triumph, adorned with everlasting life, do so by the saving death of Christ.
Are you saved? It’s a question that often confuses Catholics. The most common answer I hear is: “Well, I’m a good person, so I hope to get to heaven.” Ah … nope. Wrong answer.
