Jesus needs souls who listen to him in silence.

Virtual Discernment Retreat April 17 & 18, 2021
Some say that Christmas is canceled this year. It is true that we will miss some important elements of our Christmas celebrations such as large family and friends’ gatherings at Church and at home. But is that the core of Christmas? I am convinced this year we should celebrate Christmas more than ever. Why? Because most probably many of us have never lived in a world with such a desperate need for a Savior. But let’s get practical. How can we get rid of the chills of fear and warm up our hearts with love and peace to welcome our newborn Savior? How can we share him in joy with a world wrapped in mourning? We need a Mantle of Praise to protect our hearts.
