Lenten Practices...

Lenten practices of giving up pleasures are good reminders that the purpose of life is not pleasure. The purpose of life is to attain to perfect life, all truth and undying ecstatic love – which is the definition of God. In pursuing that goal we find happiness. Pleasure is not the purpose of anything; pleasure is a by-product resulting from doing something that is good. One of the best ways to get happiness and pleasure out of life is to ask ourselves, 'How can I please God?' and, 'Why am I not better?' It is the pleasure-seeker who is bored, for all pleasures diminish with repetition. ~ Fulton J. Sheen


Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.

Come Alive...

Don't ask what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Because what the world needs 
is people who have come alive.
