A message from Fr. Godfrey
An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
CHAPTER FIVE: SPIRITUAL COMBAT, VIGILANCE AND DISCERNMENT
167. The gift of discernment has become all the more necessary today, since contemporary life offers immense possibilities for action and distraction, and the world presents all of them as valid and good. All of us, but especially the young, are immersed in a culture of zapping. We can navigate simultaneously on two or more screens and interact at the same time with two or three virtual scenarios. Without the wisdom of discernment, we can easily become prey to every passing trend.

The Imitation of Christ
is What Our World Needs Today
Our Life is Training for Learning to Love Like the Holy Trinity
Do All People Go to Heaven?
Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization ; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God's saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases.
