A Little Parable on the Lies of the Devil and the False Promises of the World
Last edited 10th January 2012

One of the great illusions under which we labor is, that if we just get one more thing from this world, then we will be happy. Perhaps we think that if we just had a little more money, or a better job, or the latest iPad, or if we were married to so and so, or if we just lived in a better neighbourhood… then we would be satisfied and content, at last. But “at last” never comes, even if we do get some of the things on our list.

Feast of the Baptism of Jesus - Pope Asks Catholics to Show Their Faith by Word and Deed
Last edited 9th January 2012

Before a packed St. Peter's Square, Pope Benedict XVI explained what the baptism of Jesus means for those that are also baptized: “Baptism is a new birth that precedes our actions. With our faith we can go to meet Christ, but only He can make us Christian and give to our will, to our desire, the answer, the dignity, the power to become children of God.”

It Wouldn't Have Mattered
Last edited 9th January 2012

Jesus lived a remarkable life. He was born of a virgin. He lived a perfect life. He loved and healed others. He suffered greatly on the cross. But as Paul challenges us, if Christ is not risen, then our faith is foolish, our sins have not been forgiven, and we are to be pitied above all men. So though Christ's life may have been remarkable, if he is still dead, then His life up to and through the cross is meaningless. However, we know that three days later, there was an empty tomb and death had been defeated. Thus, the resurrection is the turning point and the lens in which we view Christ's life and God's promises.
