Behold the Lamb of God!

This title refers to Jesus Christ as the innocent, perfect sacrifice. Where does sacrifice come from? What does it mean for us today? If you’re not living a life of sacrifice, you’re missing out on a lot of blessings.

A Kolache Waiting to be Filled

Only a relationship with God will fulfill us. So why do we keep God at a distance? It gets dry between the rains and we can be tempted to do something to fill the emptiness. Wait for the Lord to come and fill you with the warmth of his love.

Disciple, Mother, Queen
