    The Amazing Presence of Jesus in Our Souls

    The Amazing Presence of Jesus in Our Souls

    In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, "you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." What a difference it makes to know that Jesus is present within us!

With him present in our soul, we need never be alone.

Your down-to-earth style yet deep insights are a joy to listen to. You are helping me pray. Thank you for making these spiritual meditations/talks available to the general public. Overall these are very helpful 30 minutes or less “mini-retreats”!
