Stop Hijacking Jesus’ Talents

Last edited 8th May 2013

We’ve all had important figures we’ve tried to emulate. If you’re Catholic you’ll know that the saints are such a “cloud of witnesses,” who exemplify Christ-like living for us.

Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.” “Nonsense,” says the other. “There is no life after delivery.
