I Come As a Child

"The beauty of the Gospel touches our hearts, a beauty that is the splendor of truth. It astonishes us, again and again, that God makes himself a child... so that we may love him, so that we may dare to love him, and as a child trustingly lets himself be taken into our arms. It is as if God were saying: I know that my glory frightens you, so now I come to you as a child, so that you can accept me and love me."
(Pope Benedict XVI, Christmas Homily, Midnight Mass, 2012).

Be on Fire.. a Heart Burning for the Lord

Be on Fire for the Lord!  
Let the Scriptures kindle your heart.

"And they said to one another,  "Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?" 
Luke 24:32

"The Year of Faith is calling us back to appreciate all over again the person of Jesus Christ, the truth of his Gospel and what that means to the world,” ...... "there is a whole generation of youngsters who are at high school, colleges and universities who are looking for answers, answers that are found in the Gospel.”
(Cardinal Donald Wuerl)

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
