Avoiding Sin At All Costs
Jesus taught that if we want to make it to Heaven, we must be willing to take whatever measures are necessary in our lives to avoid sinning against God.

The True Calling Of Every Soul
We were created by God and for God. We were created for His pleasure. This is the true calling that all of us must focus on.

Using Our Moments
Jesus isn't asking you for tomorrow's hours, for they may never come. He's asking you for today's moments.

Where You Stand With Your Brother...
It is contradictory to desire to draw close to God in one breath, why purposely avoiding and shutting out a brother or sister in Christ in the next breath.

If My Words Remain In You...
To the extent that we are living in obedience to Catholic teachings is to the extent that Christ's words "remain in us." Many Catholics are not receiving answers to their prayers because they are picking and choosing which Catholic teachings appeal to their palate and rejecting those teachings that do not. To pick and choose what we want to believe, and to submit to our own opinions and interpretations, is to live as a Protestant, not as a Catholic.
