Mt. 28:19 “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
Phil 2: 10-11 “At the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (St. Joseph Edition New American Bible)
Established in February of 2021 on the Feast of St. Polycarp, Bishop and Martyr of the Church; it was my idea to formally start a blog. We have one life to live, one voice to give and one path to become saints as human beings made in the image and likeness of God. “Nolite tangere christos meos” (Don’t touch my other Christs or annointed ones from 1 Chron 16:22) was a passage found in The Way, Furrow, The Forge by JoseMaria Escriva during a difficult time in my life & reminded me that we are all called to bear our crosses of suffering and angusih for the greater good. All for the Greater glory of God (AMDG) is a Jesuit motto. Bring the light of Christ to others (Lux Christi) – Lux for light. While one does not formally have to go outside to the “street” to evangelize given that most are on social media and connected, I hope this site brings one a bit of introspective reflection as we are all on a journey to center ourselves for that which is most important. Simply spreading the message and the love of Jesus and God’s mercy and kindness to a troubled world are the reasons for starting this site. Peace in Christ Jesus, Eric.
The Mission starts with you!
