The Vows




"The vows empty the soul in order for God to fill it with Himself. There should be a constant 'emptying - filling' process of growth until the soul and God are one." ~ MotherAngelica

Cliff Notes on "The Imitation of Christ"

On Earth as It Is in Heaven



On Earth as It Is in Heaven

Scripture Speaks: Love One Another

At the Last Supper, Jesus announces that His betrayal by Judas begins an outbreak of God’s glory.  How can this be? Gospel (Read Jn 13:31-33a, 34-35) St. John tells us that after Satan had entered Judas, driving him out into the night to report to Jesus’ enemies (see Jn 13:21-30), the Lord began to speak …

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone), Chris Tomlin


Chris Tomlin – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) 
From the album – Until The Morning

 Chorus:
Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me
 I once was lost, but now I'm found Was blind, but now I see
 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved
 How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed

 My chains are gone I've been set free
 My God, my Savior has ransomed me
 And like a flood His mercy reigns
 Unending love, amazing grace
 The Lord has promised good to me
 His word my hope secures
 He will my shield and portion be
 As long as life endures

 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
 The sun forbear to shine
 But God, who called me here below
 Will be forever mine Will be forever mine"
