Live the Faith! The Litany of Humility

April 20, 2021

“O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor haughty my eyes. I have not gone after things too great, nor marvels beyond me. Truly I have set my soul in silence and peace. As a child is rest in his mother’s arms, even so my soul.”
– Psalm 131

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

Have you ever been truly humbled? It can be devastating when it happens, but it’s something we all need more of. We need it because we are sinful and God is perfect. We need it because we love the world more than we love God. We need it because we are dust, and to dust we shall return. And we especially need humility in those times when we think we don’t.

Take a listen to Fr. Kyle’s story. Then, pray the litany of humility yourself and ask that God may increase and you may decrease.

Live the Faith! The Art of Spiritual Conversations – Part 7

April 6, 2021

“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
– Matthew 7:5

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

In our seventh and final lesson in this series on evangelization, we highlight two of the most important aspects of effectively sharing the gospel with others. First, to avoid at all costs approaching people with a spirit of judgement. Not only are we unworthy of passing judgement on others, but it can also bring a swift end to any hopes we might have had of reaching them in conversations about Christ.

Second, it’s imperative that we are frequenting the sacrament of reconciliation ourselves and remaining in the state of grace as we approach people about Christ. For, how can we tell people of His mercy if we don’t seek it ourselves?

Click and watch the seventh and final video in our series as we highlight two of the most vital prerequisites for having fruitful spiritual conversations.
