"Rouse us, Lord, from the quiet lull of our harbors!"

These are the true treasures in life: God and our neighbor. And this is the road Jesus tells us to take: to go up to God and to come down to our brothers and sisters. He tears us away from grazing undisturbed in the comfortable meadows of life, from living a life of ease amid little daily pleasures. His disciples are not meant for the carefree calm of a normal life. Like Jesus, they make their way traveling light, ready to leave momentary glories behind, careful not to cling to fleeting goods.”

"Help God's Dream Come True"

“You, dear families, are the vast majority of the People of God. What would the Church look like without you? God wants every family to be a beacon of the joy of his love in our world. What does this mean? It means that we, who have encountered God’s saving love, try, with or without words, to express it in little acts of kindness in our daily routine and in the most hidden moments of our day. And what is this called? It is called holiness.”

Child Refugee to Olympian: Lopez Lomong Shares His Story

It is easy to lose hope when young people find themselves alone and facing what seems like impossible challenges. In the darkest moments in my childhood, it was easy to be tempted to give up. As famine and ethnic war grips South Sudan, I cry for the children who are being robbed of their childhood. But I know the strength of the people and pray that the global community can come together and recognize this critical time to give hope to young people yearning for a different future.

“Mission is at once a passion for Jesus and a passion for His people”

These words of our Holy Father are lived out in full by the very man I call the Pope Francis of Peru: Msgr. Salvatore Piñeiro, Archbishop of Ayacucho. A great friend of the Pallottines, he is a virtuous Good Shepherd with an unfading smile, who is “truly capable of rejoicing with those who rejoice, of weeping with those who weep, of being close to those who are lonely or in anguish, of correcting those in error, of consoling the afflicted, of welcoming and helping those in need” (Pope Francis General Audience, 4 June 2014).

Caring For The Terminally Ill: Conquering The Ultimate Frontier

Jesus’ public ministry was one of compassion, of healing, of giving the fullness of the life of God. “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9: 36). Jesus fed the hungry, healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, consoled those who were grieving, associated with the social outcasts, touched the hearts of sinners with infinite mercy and changed their lives. What a beautiful ministry! In that process, he emptied himself, made himself a servant, sacrificed himself fully like a candle. Thus Jesus became the life and resurrection for us. We became a redeemed humanity. A new creation!

                  If this was the way that our Master followed, there cannot be an alternative for us who are called to be his disciples.

A Reason To Be Unreasonable

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship.” May we use this Spirit- ever alert in us- to ask the Lord to conquer any uncertainty.
