Suffering is a glorious opportunity for grace. If we join our suffering with Christ, suffering becomes redemptive not only for us, but for the whole world. We become active participants in the Lord’s work of salvation and by sanctifying our suffering win for ourselves the glory of Heaven.

The Prayer of Petition and Divine Mercy November 14th, 2009 Listen Now
We need to put all our confidence in the infinite goodness of God. God loves us and He wants us to pray to Him and ask petitions. He is not like human judges with human wisdom, but is a loving Father who wants what is best for us. He grants our proper prayers when we are ready for the gift.

The Love of Jesus October 29th, 2009 Listen Now
Our refuge and our strength lie in the love of God. God has not left us alone in this world. Jesus promised he would be with us and indeed he is literally in the Eucharist. We need to be with Jesus everyday and in as much as we can to adore him in the Tabernacle. Posted in Blessings, Devotion, Love, Ordinary Time, The Eucharist | Tags: | No Comments
The Glory of the Children of God October 27th, 2009 Listen Now
At baptism our souls are regenerated allowing us to participate in the divine nature. This makes us sons of God. God is saying we can treat him like Daddy, like a son does to his father who can deny us him anything. Posted in Blessings, Family, Love, Ordinary Time | Tags: | No Comments
Divine Filiation September 11th, 2009 Listen Now
Our Lord God, our Father, wishes to make us his sons and daughters. He has given us the dignity of being a member of His family. As the King’s Kids we receive many benefits including the privilege of talking to our Heavenly Father as a child taking to his daddy. We no longer have to struggle on our own through this life because we have a Father who loves us and helps us. Posted in Blessings, Family, Love, Ordinary Time, Spiritual Life | Tags: | No Comments
The Merit of Good Works September 10th, 2009 Listen Now
Jesus tells us that even the smallest deeds that we do for him will receive merit in heaven. When God saves us through his grace He expects to live out our Christian lives in works of love. Those works are not just any acts of love, but must be superior than the acts of love by an unbeliever. Posted in Blessings, Love, Ordinary Time, Our Neighbor, The Apostolate | Tags: | No Comments
Peace in Adversity September 9th, 2009 Listen Now
When we move close to Christ our sorrow turns to joy. Jesus promised that those who follow Him faithfully will be persecuted. We need to count this persecution as joy and a privilege as it is a sign of authenticity in the following of Christ and a clear indication that we are heading in the right direction.

The Blessing of Children August 15th, 2009 Listen Now
Our Lord loved children and asks to be like children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. That means that we need to have a clean heart and soul, be sincere and uncomplicated, without pride or pretension. If we are to progress in our union with Christ we must not let anything stand in our way. Posted in Blessings, Family, Humility, Ordinary Time | Tags: | No Comments St. Michael Time
