THOUGHTS BEYOND THOUGHTS

THOUGHTS BEYOND THOUGHTS Tomorrow is pregnant and we know not exactly what it would bring forth. However, to the one before whom tomorrow is no future but a present, there isn’t speculation about tomorrow but fact. The human eye sees within limits but there is one whose eye sees beyond the oceans.

We are not…

HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF THE 25TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A. HOMILY THEME: SHOW FORTH YOUR LIGHT

HOMILY FOR MONDAY OF THE TWENTY-FIFTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A. HOMILY THEME: SHOW FORTH YOUR LIGHT BY: Fr. Benny Tuazon HOMILY: (Lk. 18:16-18) In the day’s Gospel we have the parable of the lighted lamp.

HOMILY FOR THE TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A.  HOMILY THEME: GOD’S STANDARD OF JUDGMENT BY: Fr Unachukwu Cyril CCE HOMILY: The ability to live and move with the standard of God and with His mode of operation is what keeps us on the same page with our creator.
