What is the most important question in the world? Surely, it must be ‘Who is Jesus Christ?’ Note, not who was Jesus Christ, because ever since the Son of God rose from the dead at Easter, baptised Christians form one body, one spirit, one heart with the living Lord. In a retreat we take time aside to advert more consciously to this real personal presence of Jesus with us and in us.

“Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.”

Pope Benedict XVI

    Thank you for this Lenten retreat. I appreciate the choice of articles that you have chosen on Pope Benedict XVI and also the Akita story of Amb. Howard Q. Dee. To encounter Christ changes and transforms us.
    May I ask that you include in the next update the talk of Father Catalino Arevalo on God’s greatest Power is His Mercy and Forgiveness. Thank you. I pray that Our Blessed Mother will pray for you and may the Holy Spirit keep inspiring you to do this blessed work of evangelization using the words of Pope Benedict XVI through the internet. To God be the Glory.

Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
