Willing to let go of our misery

Many persons are not ready to be liberated. Though they may not admit it they are in love with their chains. John tells about the man who sat beside the healing pool and who had been crippled for 38 years. Jesus asked him: “Do you want to be healed?” (Jn 5). We can surmise that Jesus is asking: Do you want to be well, i.e.,...

He calls us to a moment of decision

How does Jesus liberate? He allows us to expe­rience our own frailty; when self-will fails we are ready to learn humility and become honest with ourselves.

The path of life

On one occasion Hosea consoled his people: “When Israel was a child I loved him, out of Egypt I called my son. It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms; I drew them with human cords, with bands of love; I fostered them like one who raises an infant to his cheeks. Yet, though I stooped to feed my child,...

The foundation of gratitude is faith

The foundation of gratitude is faith. Only those who believe can be grateful. Only those who believe can offer spontaneous praise to God through Jesus. At times faith may become very obscure, especially in times of suffering or boredom with self. However these are passing trials, purifying our hearts for a deeper healing and a...
