Word and Community

We experience Ordinary time in the Church liturgy, that’s why the Liturgy of Word speaks about ordinary, but also basic reality of Christian life. In the first reading our attention is focused on the prophet Amos. It’s true that Amos was a simple shepherd. He didn’t feel like a special person making a special mission. […]

“Little girl, I tell you to get up”

God’s love for you and me is beyond human prudence and foresight; beyond our grasp. Even our imagination is limited. If we knew how much He loves us, we would be amazed; we would cry for joy; we would be shocked. Jesus encourages us and assists us in a similar way as he did towards […]

Joy, love and friendship with the Lord

There is a close relationship between joy and charity. The interaction between them is very interesting: Joy left without charity loses its character and inner beauty; charity without joy is incomplete. When we look closer at the nature of joyfulness, we see it as the basic expression of simplicity, purity and meekness of God’s children […]

Remaining in the Truth of Christ

We are Christians because we adhere to the Lord and we follow him. We know that there is no life in us outside of Christ because he is the true vine and we are its branches. In order to bear fruit we, his branches, are nourished by Christ Words, Body and Blood, and are pruned […]
