"The Great Unknown"

Holy Spirit 007crop By St. Josemaria Escriva

"The strength and the power of God light up the face of the earth. The Holy Spirit is present in the Church of Christ for all time, so that it may be, always and in everything, a sign raised up before all nations, announcing to all men the goodness and the love of God. In spite of our great limitations, we can look up to heaven with confidence and joy: God loves us and frees us from our sins. The presence and the action of the Holy Spirit in the Church are a foretaste of eternal happiness, of the joy and peace for which we are destined by God."


Remaining in Him

cross-tree-of-life SquareBy Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem.

"To say that Christ is a vine woven throughout my daily life means that He is the wellspring of my thoughts, desires, and actions—the highest object of my best love. It is to love Him so well that we are constantly seeking to reproduce His love and compassion in our lives. Union with Christ—remaining in Him, abiding with Him— means having not only the “mind of Christ,” in St Paul’s phrase, but His heart as well: “Love one another as I have loved you” (Jn 15:12). All that Christ is, He shares with us."


The Shepherd’s Tender Call

William Dyce - The Good ShepherdcropBy Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem.

"What does the voice of the Good Shepherd sound like? Would you know it if you heard it? Our's is a media culture, dominated by distracting voices, sounds, and images which offer little rest to the senses, and even less peace for our souls. Information and misinformation are both freely circulated. Everything competes for our attention—to influence our opinions, to make us spend money—and often with the effect of drawing people into error and sin."
