You did not choose me, I chose you

POPE Talk…

With our small offering, Jesus can do great things God loves to do and can do a lot with our prayers, with a gesture of charity for others, even with our sufferings handed over to his mercy. Jesus also addresses an invitation to us, as received by the boy in the Gospel, with the loaves and fish; an unnamed boy in whom we can all see ourselves. It is interesting ...

She would tearfully pray for me during the family prayer. As a result, I attended my first retreat – Joy Conference – when I was a teenager. There was no dramatic experience or such but ...
