Discovering the Little Way - Fr Richard Rohr - Center for Action and Contemplation website

October 2 2022

“Thérèse called this simple, childlike path her “little way.” It is a spirituality of imperfection. In a letter to priest Adolphe Roulland (1870–1934), she writes: “Perfection seems simple to me, I see it is sufficient to recognize one’s nothingness and to abandon oneself as a child into God’s arms.” Any Christian “perfection” is, in fact, our ability to include, forgive, and accept our imperfection.”

How the Habit of Trust Transforms Your Life - Joyce Meyer

September 25 2022

“Trusting God is simply believing that He loves you and knowing He’s good, He has the power to help you, and He wants to help you. Christians are called believers, but many times, we are more like unbelieving believers. We trust our friends, the bank, the stock market or the government more than we trust God and His Word.”

Forgiveness - Essential Humility - by Archbishop Desmond Tutu - CAC website

September 18 2022

“We are able to forgive because we are able to recognize our shared humanity. We are able to recognize that we are all fragile, vulnerable, flawed human beings capable of thoughtlessness and cruelty. We also recognize that no one is born evil and that we are all more than the worst thing we have done in our lives.”

The Gospel as the Costly Adventure of Discipleship - Dan Keating

September 11 2022

“But this is entirely the wrong way round. The life of a disciple begins when Jesus breaks in and calls W become apprenticed to him and learn from him (and from our fellow disciples) what is true and good and right  He takes us on a path we did not expect to traverse. For sure, our choice is an essential part of this, but it is the choice of whether or not to follow Jesus on his terms. Will we follow as Peter and Matthew did, or will we turn and walk away in sadness like the rich young man?”
