This is what is meant by following Christ. In this way, disregarding earthly gains, Matthew attached himself to the band of followers of One who had no riches. For the Lord himself, who outwardly called Matthew by a word, inwardly bestowed upon him the gift of an invisible impulse so that he was able to… Continue reading Let Go
It’s hard to wake up and know things are about to change. Lent is an ordained time, a spiritual awakening, a desert and an emerging.
