Reflection on lukewarm Christians

Christians rightly say and learn to treat others with humility and respect. They rightly reject all kinds of agenda of indoctrination. In doing so, they loose missionary zeal and they use methods that do not work with many challenges. It seems like alien ideas take over more and more space in the Christian sphere, whereas […]

Mary’s guidance before the coming of Christ.

Christ is the Fullness of the Revelation, the Law, the Truth and the Love revealed in the Old and New Covenants. He founded the Church, His Mystical Body, which means that the Catholic Faith is not of human origin, it does not come from people. As St Cyprian confirms for us, the Catholic Church is […]

Baptism of the Lord

The great joy of Christmas Celebrations has been flowing through the Epiphany to the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, where it has reached its fulfilment.

Let us not imitate life of pagans 

“I want to urge you in the name of the Lord, not to go on living the aimless kind of life that pagans live.” Ephesians 4:17.  We live as if God does not exist and we are full of our own vision of life, not God’s vision. It takes time but time is getting short. […]

 “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 […]
