As a believer, doubt does not indicate the lack of faith, but invites us to a deeper faith. Listen as Father Pete sheds light on why Saint John the Baptist, while imprisoned, sends his disciples to ask Jesus if He is the One.
St. John the Baptist is the voice crying out in the desert calling us to prepare for the coming of the Lord. The mark of a faithful Christian is the struggle to be a faithful disciple. We are called and graced to bring the fruits of our faith into the world as we wait for the second coming of Christ.
All of us experience suffering. We each have a cross to bear. The love of God for us was displayed in humility of Jesus' suffering on the cross. Unless we embrace our cross, we will not find peace in this world. Our crosses have the power and grace to reveal the glory of God.
Time and wealth are gifts which must be used wisely. Jesus was very clear in scripture in how we must be on guard against greed. None of us is guaranteed a tomorrow. We only have the present moment and must be good stewards of our time and wealth.
Jesus promises he will return. He calls us to be vigilant at all times.
Each moment of time is precious and irreplaceable. What we call "delay" may be God's manifestation of Divine Mercy. Do you have to hit rock bottom before repenting and returning to the Lord?
Does you life have a mission? How would your work habits be described? Where is your energy directed? Bishop Biegler describes how Saint Paul is a "slave" for Christ and invites us to reflect on how we direct our own life's work.
Our most basic right is the right to life because each of us is a child of God, made in his image, regardless of our religious beliefs or sexual orientation. Recently terrorists have brutally attacked this right and we cannot condone these acts of violence.
