Faith, a relationship with God, is not something easy

The Peace Pulpit: Who of us hasn't come up to an intersection and seen a poor person with a cup, a hungry person, a homeless person? What's our attitude when that happens? Do you really see Jesus?


Children lead the way to stop violence, save Earth

The Peace Pulpit: Jesus asked us to be prudent in regard to our very planet, to save it. It’s time that we listen to the young people, who are listening to Jesus and following him.


What God does seems foolish, but it's wiser than our way of thinking

The Peace Pulpit: Think about another way of being a disciple that isn't so popular in our country. That is reaching out to those refugees at our border and loving them, welcoming them.


Humility is an attempt to see ourselves honestly

The Peace Pulpit: Humility is an attempt to see ourselves as gifted people made by God with virtues and gifts that we can nurture and develop. We must remember: Whatever gifts we have, they are from God.
