Fighting Complacency: Who is Your Lazarus?

September 29, 2019

The parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is not really about poverty as it is about complacency. Poverty isn't evil. Not caring to help someone is. We all have a Lazarus in our lives. Who is yours?

Are you a Real Disciple? 3 Practical Ways to Become One

Are you a Real Disciple? 3 Practical Ways to Become One

September 8, 2019

You don't just come out of the womb a disciple. You have to work to become one. You first have to encounter Christ--and experience Him personally. Then you have to be hungry and humble enough to be taught by Him. And finally, you have to choose to follow him unreservedly. A real disciple puts Christ, His teachings and His Church above everything and everyone...without exception! Are you a disciple?

Will Only a Few be Saved?

August 25, 2019

When people asked Jesus, "will many be saved?" He responded by saying, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for MANY I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough.” What was Jesus talking about? I will explain it to you...this is serious stuff!

The Only Prayer Written by the Blessed Virgin

The Only Prayer Written by the Blessed Virgin

August 16, 2019

Mary composed one prayer that we know of. St. Louis de Montfort said of this prayer that "is the greatest offering of praise that God ever received under the law of grace.” If you don't know what do say after you receive Holy Communion at Mass, this is the perfect prayer. It's what the Blessed Virgin said after SHE received the Eucharist!

This Virtue is Necessary for Eternal Life

This Virtue is Necessary for Eternal Life

August 4, 2019

As Jesus was literally walking to His death, he stopped the Apostles to explain the necessity of a specific virtue. No one can get to heaven without it. And those who have it now will experience peace and happiness on earth...even if everything else in the world is chaotic. 

Want to practice generosity? Would you support the radical work we are doing to bring Christ to Baltimore? I am not asking because it would be nice to get a little more help.
