How God Will Reveal His Gloryby Deacon Tom Fox
ARTICLE – As more of society becomes ‘dead’ in faith, how will God reveal his glory? Deacon Tom Fox gives believers a challenge, inspired by the Sunday Gospel.
How I Encountered God in Lentby PCH Media Production
ARTICLE – Of all the holidays, holy days and seasons throughout our liturgical calendar, Lent is my favorite, but it wasn’t always that way. When I was younger, I saw it as an annoyance or an inconvenience with so many rules. Luckily, God knows our shortcomings and idle ways of thinking, and he uses life circumstances to help us understand the deeper meaning of it all…
How Far Does Divine Mercy Reach?by PCH Media Production
ARTICLE – Have you ever wondered if Judas Iscariot, the Apostle and betrayer of Jesus Christ, received God’s mercy and redemption? So many assume he earned hell, but experiencing for myself the great mercy of God, I am not so sure.
What it Means to Encounterby PCH Media Production
ARTICLE – In this time of Lent and beyond, we are challenged to be open to encountering our Lord in places and people we wouldn’t expect to meet him. Perhaps He is present with an enemy or a person with whom we disagree. We can possibly encounter Him in the secular world, within the fog of distress and despair; there He is waiting and…
Three Levels of Temptation and How to Break Freeby Deacon Tom Fox
ARTICLE – These forty days of Lent are a time for us to take a look at how we are doing spiritually. Do we love God above everything else and our neighbor as ourselves? The most important thing we can do for ourselves and the people we love is to order our lives to God. He will help us overcome the temptations that cause us to hurt one another and to feel that we are not loved by God. Jesus waits for us to…
Why Be Catholic?by Deacon Tom Fox
ARTICLE – God loves all his people and it is his desire that all be saved. There are multitudes of people from all different religions who believe in God and their eternal destination is known to God alone. However, it is a historic and religious reality that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, thus being both God and man. The Catholic Church welcomes anyone who wants to be formed in the faith through formal instruction. To be a member of the Church is to…
Learning from Jesus How to Loveby Nan Balfour
ARTICLE – When Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew (5:44), to love our enemy and pray for those who persecute us, he knows that on our own that is impossible for us to accomplish. We can only learn how to love our fellow man through receiving Jesus into our hearts, our minds, and our souls, and allowing…
A Pathway to True Freedom in Christby PCH Media Production
ARTICLE – Pope St. John Paul II once said that “freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” What is that we ought to do? Act with justice to God and our neighbor. But we are flawed human beings, thus we need…
Be Counter-Cultural; Live the Beatitudesby Deacon Tom Fox
ARTICLE – Our faith requires us to be counter-cultural because our culture is frequently opposed to Gospel principles. All eight Beatitudes are meant to be applied to the life of every Christian because they reflect what faithful discipleship looks like. If we do not see the Beatitudes as the way to true happiness, we have not…
Jesus, Show Me Who I Amby Mary Jane Fox
ARTICLE – We are a creation of God! He knew you from the second you were formed in your mother’s womb! This thought in itself is pretty incredible! Because that also means He has known you from the very beginning! What does this say about me? When God created you, He…
