Never to Die Again:

We cannot imagine what that moment was like when Christ broke from the tomb, glorious, never to die again. And that’s going to happen to us! By the same Holy Spirit we are destined to live forever: That’s fantastic!


'Good News' - Faith:

The Good News of Salvation that Jesus teaches must be accepted and believed wholeheartedly. We cannot live a materialistic and secular life of self-centeredness and yet be a follower of Jesus. A disciple of Jesus must have a sincere commitment to His Teachings and offer selfless service to others.

***********************************************************************************

True spiritual life consists in this: that man keep his eyes on God all the time, long for nothing but for God, keep nothing in mind but God, begin every single action in the Lord's name, and direct it to Him: in short, that he unify his whole being — mind, will, memory, senses, and actions — in God.

- Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria (1502-1539)

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will.

- St. Paul, Ephesians 1:11

Man not only has a destiny, but each individual of the race has a special destiny, a definite work to do; and this work is a great, an important, a divine work. For, whatever God appoints is great — great in its purpose, important in its accomplishment, divine in its results.

- Father Isaac Hecker, founder of the Missionary Society of St. Paul the Apostle (1819 - 1888)
