How will you LOVE, today?

Going into the Deep – trusting God, when life keeps giving me lemons.

I experimented for the first time the other evening at Made for More Camp on taking photos with long exposures during our candlelit Adoration in the Pavillion.

IContinue reading “Going into the Deep – trusting God, when life keeps giving me lemons.”

Servants of Christ and Stewards of the Mysteries of God – A Reflection on Communion Calls

St. Paul says that we are to be regarded as “the servants of Christ and the stewards of the mysteries of God” (1 Cor. 4:1)   I’m reminded of one of the readings from the Liturgy of the Hours, I think it is from Romans, but the line says: “He whom you serve is theContinue reading “Servants of Christ and Stewards of the Mysteries of God – A Reflection on Communion Calls”
