Mary

The mystery of the human person stands at the center of material creation.  All was created for the human person who alone can thank God.  Does the heavenly Father just like to paint beautiful skies or form planets?  Is he like a child in a sandbox building castles?  God is a person and has created the human person to know and love him.  He wants the person to become like himself and to live forever.

Like Adam, who enjoyed paradise but felt lonely without human love, so the heavenly Father wants the human person to give him divine love.  The greatness of the human person is his capacity to be divinized, to be made like God and to love God as God loves himself.  This call can only be fulfilled by the Holy Spirit of God poured out by Jesus.

Jesus stands at the center of all history, nailed to the cross from which he gave up his Spirit.  The mystery of each human person is found only in Jesus’ opened heart.  Go there and you will find your name written.  Stay there and you will discover who you are.  Surrender to Jesus and you will fulfill your call.

Comment:  Every person is a unique mystery and discovers the answer to that mystery in Jesus Christ.

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.
