‘Tis the Season

By Paul Verderber / December 4, 2022 /

GVM is a non-profit organization, and Father Maurice and I receive no financial compensation for our work with the ministry. However, it takes money to keep the website running, updated, and secure. It takes money to support Catholic missionaries in the jungles of Guyana, and to build the St. Faustina…

He Cares

By Tristan Evans / December 3, 2022 /

Today’s readings ask us to ponder our personal relationship with our God. When you take our daily lives in the balance despite the trials and challenges we go through from time-to-time, our Lord brings us through. And when we look more intently upon those daily challenges some don’t seem to…

According To Your Faith

By Fr. Christian Amah / December 2, 2022 /

One of the amazing things I read in Scripture is how Jesus heals people not according to God’s might but according to one’s faith. Isn’t that amazing? We know God can do anything. God has the ability: He made the world out of nothing; holds the world in being, controls…

Finding and Using Our Gifts

By John and Kathy Schultz / November 30, 2022 /

Jesus Calls “Come after me and I will make you fishers of men.” Christ’s mission to save our world began with an invitation to humble fishermen. He did not begin his ministry in the temple in Jerusalem, or the courts of Herod or even in the Roman praetorium. What did…

By Deborah van Kroonenburg / November 29, 2022 /

In those days, when we lived each day close to the Lord, we came to feel as though he was a friend, a kinsman in our midst. We heard him laugh and we saw him cry. So many of the emotions a man can feel passed through his expressions and…

Nowhere in Israel Have I Found Such Faith

By Sister Veronica Schueler, F.S.E. / November 28, 2022 /

The Gospel for today is one of my favorite readings. In it, Jesus encounters a centurion, a Roman military officer, who seeks healing for his paralyzed servant. That a member of the occupying army should have been so concerned about a servant is in itself remarkable. That he would have…

The Hour Has Come

By Fr. John Opara / November 27, 2022 /

Time is one of the most expensive commodities on earth. We notice this when we are about to organize a meeting. We see how difficult it is to get people to agree on a fixed date, because everyone is busy looking at his or her calendar, checking whether the time…

The Prize

By Arlene Braganza / November 26, 2022 /

Eyes on the prize!! Keep your eyes on the prize! What is the prize, you say? Well, the prize could be different things for different people. For some people, the “prize” might be a goal they’re trying to accomplish. For others, it might be the ideal weight they wish to…

Hope of a New City of Joy and Peace

By Fr. Luke Ijezie / November 25, 2022 /

What sustains us in difficult moments is the hope that things will be better. As conditions become increasingly tough, people naturally desire a future filled with better promises. The Christian life is anchored on the assurance that the future is a glorious one, and this is far greater than what…

A Seeming Contradiction

By Nicole Buchholz / November 24, 2022 /

There is nothing as hard as getting bad news close to the holidays. Today in the United States we are celebrating the holiday of Thanksgiving. The daily readings, however, are all about the end times, yet the psalm is joyful and invites us to joy and thanksgiving. It seems to…
