A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Good Friday - All Ready?

So many people are oblivious to the meaning of Good Friday and their Christians. The attitude among them seems to resonate an annoyance that conveys "Okay, so it's Good Friday. And?" Attitudes such as that make me wonder whether or not I have done what I needed during Lent? Did my sacrifice show Christ? Did my almsgiving stretch me in such a way that someone was truly helped? And let's not forget fasting. Did I really partner my fasting with prayer so that I could be made over? Doing these things helps not only ourselves but also those with whom we interact. As Christians, there should be nothing better than to contemplate the LOVE of Jesus as continues to suffer for us. Holy Thursday offered us the opportunity to pray in a new way, before suffering. Today, Good Friday, offers us the courage to pray while we suffer.
