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…

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…

The thought of being separated from God due…

It Worked in Ninevah, It Works Now

By Kelly Vardakas | February 24, 2021

We see in today’s first reading that God was ready to destroy Ninevah because of the evil that was occurring there. Jonah was called by God to prophesy to the people that the city would be destroyed in 40 days. The people took this prophesy seriously and began to fast and make sacrifices to God, the…

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.
