Making Choices in Daily Life

 

To be alive is to face making choices constantly.  Some choices are more life-giving than others, so we want to choose wisely.  How might we be open to the influence of God in our choice-making?

An Art of Living

 

My days of prayer are a condensed version of my silent weekend retreats.  They are the essence of insights and invitations that I hope have the potential to transform our lives with the peace and joy Jesus promises us.

Gratitude and Forgiveness

 

Gratitude and forgiveness are irrevocably tied to each other.  A forgiving person is a grateful person and vice-versa.  We will look at the common bond between these two in hopes of increasing both virtues and enhancing the joy in our lives.

Các Thánh Thông Công

 

Nhân ngày Lễ Các Thánh và ngày đầu của Tháng Các Linh Hồn, tưởng cũng là một dịp tốt để chúng ta cùng suy tư học hỏi về một trong những điểm quan trọng của Kinh Tin Kính Kito giáo: Các thánh thông công.   Ngày Cầu Nguyện sẽ là dịp chúng ta cùng hiểu rõ hơn Giáo hội nói gì về các thánh và các linh hồn sau khi chết.  Đây cũng là dịp chúng ta muốn gặp gỡ Chúa bên cạnh tổ tiên chúng ta.

Advent Day of Reflection

 

In this first week of the Advent season, we will try to become quiet and go deeper in our prayer, especially aware of the movements inside, so that these days of preparation may be days of growing joy in anticipation of the birth of our Redeemer.

A Winter Day Alone with God

 

Christmas decorations are put away and we now are in the deep silence of winter-time.  This will be a day of prayer with the One who is with us in every season.

“The Name of God is Mercy”

 

Pope Francis loves to call God ‘Mercy’, and this name is the name of our Prayer Day.  By contemplating the merciful love of God, we are filled with courage to return to Him.  As we absorb the merciful love of God, do we have the potential to blossom with love for one another.

A Day Away

 

“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while” Jesus had to sometimes say to his disciples.   We will try to do just that and, entering the quiet that we find, seek to hear another invitation “Be still, and know that I AM.” What might we find?

Aging and Finding God

 

As we advance in years we are more and more aware of the finiteness of our lives.   We will examine ways of putting to rest our fears and expanding our hopes in finding the fullness of joy.
