The Coming New and Divine Holiness

Mark Mallett

Angel Protector and Shepherd



"From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their (the angels) watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life. Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united to God."
 – From the Catechism of the Catholic Church; 336.

Psalm 37 & Learning to Trust God

"Do you ever find a particular Scripture worming its way into your heart?  Or perhaps it’s a subtle tap-tap-tap.  Maybe, as in my husband’s case, it’s a giant brick hitting you over the head.  No matter, I think it’s safe to assume that most of us have at least one particular verse or portion of …"

The Resurrection: Hallucination or Vision?

"Suppose your ninety-year-old grandmother tells you she sees leprechauns dancing in the butter dish in the cafeteria at her assisted living home. Would you think her perception conforms to objective reality? Or would you think she’s hallucinating? My guess is the latter. Imagine now your grandmother dies, and then a few days later you see …

Our Lord's Friend Request


Image result for friend request

We are totally dependent on Our Lord.  We can do nothing without Him.

Jesus Christ is always asking us to 'friend him'.  Every moment he is sending us a 'friend request'.
Over and over and over again.  He never tires of asking.

How many answer yes?  How many 'friend him'?  How many just 'delete' his request?

And yet, in our need, when we send him a 'friend request', he is SO quick to respond that he answers before we even click the 'send button'.

He is always ready and anxious to be our friend.
He wants to 'friend' the whole world and he is always glad to receive our 'friend request'.

Our loving Lord does not have a 'reject' or 'delete' button.

Called to Be Martyrs

"Originally, the martyrs were simply witnesses to Christ. That’s in keeping with the meaning of the Greek word for martyr, martys (pronounced: mar’-toos), which was the technical term for a witness at a legal trial. In the New Testament, one of the earliest occurrences of the word is in Acts 1:8, where a soon-to-ascend Christ …

Sharing in God’s Eternity

Eternity is not an extension or an expansion of time.

 Eternity is the end of time.

Sharing in God’s Eternity

"When I was young, even three and four years old, I used to cry at night thinking about death and eternity. It was a feeling as if the wind has gotten knocked out of me and a huge weight was being pressed upon me. Even now, a feeling of terror can come over me when …"
