    Calm Down this Advent

    Calm Down this Advent

    A core theme of the Advent Season is peace. Preparing for Christmas can often be a time of chaos and busyness, but God wants us to find calmness and stillness in this season. Not the peace that the world offers, but a deeper, spiritual peace that only God can provide. Fr. Mark shares five quotes that can help inspire us to calm down and find peace during this Advent Season.

    Thy Kingdom Come

    Thy Kingdom Come

    On the Feast of Christ the King, Jesus encourages us to bring forth His Kingdom here on earth. On the day of our baptism, we were baptized as priest, prophet, and king; however, the kingship of Jesus is not be confused with the kingship of this world. Christ came to serve, not to be served. Fr. Ken reminds us of the good news found in Matthew’s gospel: the Kingdom of Heaven is near, go and share the good news of the Kingdom!

    Look Busy

    Look Busy

    In the Old Testament, God commands Moses to keep the fire burning at all times in the temple. We must also keep the fire of the Lord burning in us at all times; which means experiencing the love of God in every moment of our life. Fr. Mark explains that we can find God in even the simplest moments of our life by focusing on the duty of the moment. When Christ returns, will he find the fire of God’s love burning in our hearts?

    Life After Death

    Life After Death

    Many people are uncomfortable thinking about their own mortality. As Christians, we know the truth, that there is life after death. Fr. Ken reminds us that we are in this world, but not of this world. Do not get distracted by this life because we have an eternal destiny that God has promised us.

    God is Infinitely Infatuated with You

    God is Infinitely Infatuated with You

    When we are upset with ourselves, we can often project that on God and think that He is upset with us as well. The truth is that God loves us at every stage, like a coach cheering us on, pushing us to get better each day – little by little. Fr. Mark explains how Wisdom chapters 11 and 12 have helped him to better comprehend the massive love of God.

    Strength in Weakness

    Strength in Weakness

    If we were given the choice between strength and weakness, many of us would choose strength; that is because society has conditioned us to believe that we must always be strong to be accepted. In this talk, Fr. Ken explains how he was able to overcome struggles with mental health by accepting his weakness and allowing God to be his strength.
