God’s will

The angel said to Mary, ‘You will conceive and bear a son,’ not ‘Are you willing to conceive and bear a son?’ That is how God’s will comes to us, in the things that happen to us more than in the things we choose!

To Complete the law

March 10th.  Matthew 5: 17-19  Today, Jesus tells us about the way we follow God’s law, the commandments.  The 1st and 2nd commandments are the two most important because without love for God and our neighbour, it’s difficult to keep the other commandments.  Try to be aware of your thoughts and especially your judgments.  Pay close attention to the way […]
