On the following day he left with Barnabas for Derbe. After they had proclaimed the good news to that cityand made a considerable number of disciples,they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch.They strengthened the spirits of the disciplesand exhorted them to persevere in the...

    The Return of the Prayer to St. MichaelJoe Bissonnette Modern philosophy is full of all sorts of absurd theories about the illusory nature of existence and the unreliability of everything we know to be true. But the boots on the ground, living, breathing, day to day philosophy of even the most angst-ridden German nihilist or the most wild-eyed French existentialist has to be common sense realism. Even German and French philosophers must eat, sleep and conduct themselves in civil society.Theres great consolation in the reliability of the law of gravity and the fact that it means something specific to me...

    Fatima, 100 Years Ago Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. It is also the 100th anniversary of her first appearance to the Fatima children. She spoke of the need to repent of sin to avoid hell. Later she appeared to a Japanese sister at Akita and basically continued her message. There she said that "if men do not repent and better themselves the Father will inflict a terrible punishment." Between 1917 and now, what has been the change? Our Lady delivered her words to a world that still was nominally Christian. That cannot be said anymore, with...

    May 15, 2017 Monday of the Fifth Week of Easter Reading 1 Acts 14:5-18There was an attempt in Iconiumby both the Gentiles and the Jews,together with their leaders,to attack and stone Paul and Barnabas.They realized it,and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbeand to the surrounding countryside,where they continued to proclaim the Good News. At Lystra there was a crippled man, lame from birth,who had never walked. He listened to Paul speaking, who looked intently at him,saw that he had the faith to be healed,and called out in a loud voice, "Stand up straight on your feet."He...
  • Tempering Zeal with Sensitivity (James, Son of Zebedee)

    Grace to ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    The twelve apostles included "James the son of Zebedee" (Matt. 10:2). Zeal without sensitivity can destroy your life and ministry. There's the story of a Norwegian pastor whose motto was "All or nothing!" His life and preaching were stern, strong, powerful, uncompromising, and utterly insensitive. Reportedly the people in his church didn't care much for him because he didn't care much for them. In his zeal and ambition to advance the kingdom and uphold God's standard, he neglected everything elseincluding his own family. One day his little daughter became so ill the doctor warned him that if he didn't move...

    And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock (Matthew 7:25). Faithfulness in discipleship will mean we are prepared for the worst possible adversity and trial. People are often unprepared for lifes unexpected upheavals. This was vividly illustrated by the once-in-500-year floods that struck the Northern Plains of the United States in the spring of 1997. One community on the Red River in North Dakota was especially devastated by the surprising events. After working diligently for days to...

    The world, in its ignorance, is racing rapidly a day of reckoning. The recent election of Marcon of France, raises many questions about the future of Europe. Erdogan is rattling his spiritual sabre. Millions of Muslim's are waiting to rush into Europe, setting off a population bomb that will fulfill the second arm of Jihad. Will it be Muslim controlled within 10 years? And then there's the professor who attempts to make the argument that showing graphic pictures of dismembered babies is akin to "child pornography", proving that people who are wise in their own minds are complete reprobate when...

    Mothers Day is a joyous observance for most of the 85 percent of women who have borne a child by age 40. But not so much for women who have neither procreated nor adopted, who find Mothers Day a painful reminder of their childlessness. Perhaps they squandered years on a relationship that resulted in neither marriage nor children. Perhaps they were so career-driven they had no room in their lives for a husband and offspring. Or perhaps they wed and tried to have children, but their wombs were barren. For women of faith despairing on this Mothers Day that they...

    Are You a Tombstone or a Living Stone? – A Homily for the 5th Sunday of Easter Msgr. Charles Pope • May 13, 2017 • By His resurrection, Jesus has brought us from death to life. He has snatched us from this present evil age (Gal 1:4) and from the death-directed desires of our body (Rom 6:12), and made us into a new and living creation (2 Cor 5:17). As such, we have exchanged the tombstones that once indicated we were dead in our sins and have become living stones in the spiritual edifice that is the Body of...
