An Annulment

An Annulment

June 14, 2022

AN ANNULMENT. Bringing a case before a tribunal seems like a daunting task, but the Annulment process is designed to find the truth as to whether a marriage was actually valid at the time of the wedding.  It can take time and effort, and requires patience, but the result is a pathway or bridge back to the Sacraments, and a healthy life within the Church.

FATHER SOLANUS CASEY. "Blessed" Fr. Solanus Casey was a modern day miracle worker and mystic, now on his way to Sainthood.  When troubles arose in people’s lives, they would be told to "go see the holy priest."   This simple Capuchin Franciscan friar has become an inspiration for many, because of his example of humility, and his love of the sick and the poor.

WHAT IS YOUR PRIORITY? We can only be successful and achieve a goal when we concentrate and focus our attention on it.  So where is your focus?  What things do you value and desire most?  Our Lord says, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides."

TRUST IN GOD. We’re told that unless we turn, and become like children, we cannot enter the kingdom of God. But in our daily thoughts and prayers, do we really trust, and place everything in God’s hands?

THE TIME IS NOW. We sometimes reflect back on our past with regret, and often feel hesitation and uncertainty in anticipation of our future, but when it comes to answering God’s call to forgive and to love, the time to act is right now.

Truth vs Relevance

Truth vs Relevance

April 3, 2022

TRUTH VS RELEVANCE. There are not multiple versions of Truth.  Even if our beliefs are not accepted, we are called to follow the revealed truth, and distinguish it from versions of truth that are diluted to make it relevant to the current times.  No, it’s not easy.  He said, "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life"!  Although we ourselves are sinful, let us try to be witnesses to the truth revealed to us by God.
