The Power of Love

By Fr. Venatius Oforka | May 6, 2021

Christianity is the most beautiful religion that has ever existed on earth. Only this religion has the ability to liberate our world from the stranglehold of evil. Only its principles and basic message can truly set both humanity and nature free from the pangs of wickedness that overshadows them. For only Christianity is the religion…

Early Controversy in the Church

By Fr. Mike Moore | May 5, 2021

In today’s first reading we hear about the first great controversy in the Church. It dealt with the relationship of the Jewish law to the Christian faith. It sounds odd to us today, but Jesus lived as a Jew, all the apostles lived as Jews, and Jesus even said that His mission was to the…

Get Back Up

By Paul Verderber | May 4, 2021

In the first reading today, Saint Paul gets stoned by the local population, and is thrown out of town like rubbish.  They believe he is dead.  God was not done with Paul yet, as he still had lots of evangelizing to do, and more suffering to endure.  He gets up, dusts himself off, and gets…

Like Father, Like Son

By G K Zachary | May 3, 2021

Growing up, like most other teenagers, I’ve indulged in my share of rebellion. What kept me from devolving into outright malicious delinquency was the firm hand of my father, combined with a filial fear of swift retribution, a self-imposed limit to not disappoint him any more. On reflection from years later, was also an unspoken…

Why Abide in Jesus?

By Fr. Christian Amah | May 2, 2021

The Lord Jesus Christ beckons on us today to remain in Him. The reason why He is asking us to remain in Him is to be able to bear fruits. If we do not remain in Him, we will not bear fruits, and just as unfruitful branches of a tree are cut off so the…

Using Stumbling Blocks as Stepping Stones

By Fr. Maurice Emelu | May 1, 2021

In today’s reflection, I inspire us to use stumbling blocks as stepping stones. Have you observed how trickles of water flow from rocks in a creek? The water follows different paths but merges into a spring, a lake, a river, or an ocean. For the most part, the water flows through rough and twisted tracks.…

Set Apart to Proclaim the Word of God!

By Fr. Justino Cornejo | April 30, 2021

There was a priest in my home parish, who during the whole Easter time greeted the parishioners at the end of Mass by saying: “Christ is risen!” The proper answer to this greeting, he explained once, was: “He is truly risen!” Once, a friend of mine, during a meeting of our youth group asked him:…

At Home with Jesus

By John and Kathy Schultz | April 30, 2021

It is a rite of passage familiar to many parents—preparing a room for the new baby. When we were expecting our first child, I remember the excitement and joy we felt picking out colors and furniture for the baby’s room. Later, when we had more babies than bedrooms, we might not have been picking out…

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.
