Contact Privately The Poor Widow November 23rd, 2009 Listen Now
We should never be afraid to be generous or embarrassed if our gift cannot be as big as our neighbor’s. The poor widow could only give a penny. It was all she had. Jesus considered her gift to be greater than all the others. We need to give sacrificially for the love of God and our neighbor.

Christian Detachment and Poverty December 23rd, 2009 Listen Now
The Christmas call to each of us is to live the poverty as it was preached and lived by Christ. Effective detachment of everything we have and are is necessary if we are to follow Jesus. As St. Paul said in 2 Cor 8:9, Jesus, …for our sake, became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. Posted in Abandonment, Advent, Poverty | Tags: | No Comments
Following Christ September 30th, 2009 Listen Now
Following Christ requires detachment. The material goods of this world are merely a means to a higher end of caring for family, educating children, benefiting society, helping the poor. We should never be so attached to material things that we avoid helping our neighbor or impede our growth in Christ.
