Joseph Betrayed by His Brothers

By Fr. Mike Moore | March 5, 2021

In this first half of Lent, we hear in the Mass readings especially about virtue and vice and how we should choose virtue. Today’s first reading shows us a particularly nasty act. In my eyes, it is one of the worst deeds described in the Bible, since it involves the betrayal of a brother. Most…

What’s in a Name?

By Paul Verderber | March 4, 2021

Many have said that the sweetest sound, in any language, is the sound of one’s own name.  A lost child hearing his name called by his mother, a greeting in an airport or bus station or in a mall, or the cheers of a crowd…all these events produce a joyous reaction and an emotional jolt.…

Cancel Jeremiah!

By G K Zachary | March 3, 2021

There is one thing that I am certain about. It is that I wish to fly the Catholic flag. It is the one sure path to life in eternity in the presence of my Lord. It is the one true rock that will prevail against the gates of the netherworld (Mt 16:18). It is my…

Calling No One Father and The Seat of Moses

By Fr. Christian Amah | March 2, 2021

I have heard some people object to the title, “Father” that is addressed to priests because according to them, Jesus commanded us not to call anyone Father. How about our biological fathers? Are we also not supposed to address them as fathers? What about the other titles mentioned by Jesus, teacher, master? This is one…

Leading by Mercy

By Fr. Maurice Emelu | March 1, 2021

This reflection is on mercy as a crucial quality of a virtuous life. Let’s begin with you. I mean, you as you are and me as I am. Specifically, you and me as believers, we, as people, granted the grace of faith, people called in love to communion with our Creator. Is it because we…

A Joyful Stop Along the Lenten Road!

By Fr. Justino Cornejo | February 28, 2021

Not too long ago, we started the season of Lent, with the celebration of Ash Wednesday. On that day, the Church invited us to start a forty-day journey of preparation for the celebration of the feast of feasts: Easter! Forty days can be a long time. Along the way we may lose our perspective, and…

One Family

By Fr. John Opara | February 27, 2021

Family expresses the love and relationship shared by husband and wife, and their children (if they are blessed with children). It is a love that is rich in patience, forgiveness, care and concern for one another. These characteristics also exist when we refer to the Church as the family of God.  The Church as family…

Stay on the Straight and Narrow

By Arlene Braganza | February 26, 2021

In today’s first reading, Prophet Ezekiel exhorts us to stay on the straight and narrow path, following the Lord.  Even if we fail and fall into temptation and sin, we can rise up, beg for forgiveness through the sacrament of Reconciliation, and be in God’s graces again. The thought of being separated from God due…

A GVM message that warms the heart from 2020 Christmas

How We Started

Our ministry was inspired by the vision of a well-known priest from the Catholic Diocese of Orlu in Nigeria, Father Maurice Emelu. He’s dedicated to sharing and living the Catholic message of love and grace in the spirit of joy in a cross-cultural way. Sharing in the same mission and values, we’re able to inspire many across cultures to be agents of grace and healing in their various communities.

Lord Jesus Christ, let your love rest upon us even as our hope rests on you 🙏🙏 Psalm 33vs22—Chidi O. Chidi 

I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God—Psalm 40:1-3

Psalm 119:11


I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Kathleen DiNobile Campagnone


That was Beautiful! Thank you—a GREAT reading to begin my day! Thank you & God Bless🙏🙏

Revelation 12:10-11


Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. 11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
