“The World Offers You Comfort, but You were not Made for Comfort, You Were Made for Greatness” (Benedict XVI).

For Catholic men who strive to live according to the calling to which we have been called (Ephesians 4:1).

    Lured by Desire

    Lured by Desire

    We are "lured and enticed by own own desire" - ask God to heal you of these desires. He wants to help, you just gotta ask him and invite him into your life.



    The daily reading for February 13, 2024 is from James 1:12-18: https://bible.usccb.org/daily-bible-reading

    Find Me in the River

    Find Me in the River

    The title of this episode is inspired by one of my favourite worship songs, "Find Me in the River" by Delirious?

    In this episode we encounter two men, King David and the Gerasene Demoniac. Both of these men embody the locale in which they find themselves: at the River Jordan. At the river, God finds them and heals them.

    May this same loving God find you at your river.

    Here's a link to the song: https://youtu.be/WFVmrdik5i8?si=xXd-np28FB8KVzXR
