Evil is all around – time to rise up and fight it!

There are many things we can do when we take a step of faith.  That’s when Jesus builds us up to victory.  I kindly propose these suggestions:

How will I bring light to the world around me?

Who can I lessen the burden of loneliness?

How can I help my next door neighbor?

There is power in God’s Grace to rise up against evil.

PS: my to-do list is forming.  What about yours?

“Dear children, I am calling you to love.  Love first of all the members of your own family, and then you might be able to accept and love all those who are coming.”

–A message from Medjugorje

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”  –1 John 4:11

The spreading of anarchy around the world will not bring about justice, but result in never ending hatred.

“All the powers of evil are unleashed in order to prevent us from making others happy…Pride, anger and egoism work together to constitute an insurmountable mountain.  And we must climb it, leaving shreds of our flesh all along the way.”

–Servant of God Jacques Fesch, a murderer who lived a profound conversion in a French prison before being executed.




For me these days all seem to be like a relaxing Saturday.  The weather is warming up and Spring is in full force.  I’ve turned our sunny deck into a colorful container vegetable garden that is sprouting very green.  Observant of the many birds that peck into the feeding trough, I feel so connected to nature and self-reflection.

My hope is that you have a sanctuary of beauty and rest to relax in, to expel mundane stresses and be encouraged to commune with nature.

If you do nothing else with your life, develop an amazing friendship with the Creator.  This friendship will change the way you see yourself and the world.  It will rearrange your priorities, as love always does.  It will give you clarity and a joy that nobody can take from you.”  –Matthew Kelly

Amen and Happy Saturday!
