Remain in the Course


“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ “(Isaiah 30:21)

God has put a promise inside each and every one of us. Oftentimes, we have to go through the wilderness before we reach our promised land. Oftentimes, like Joseph, we feel like we are in a pit long before we ever see the palace. Maybe you’re in a season right now where you don’t see anything happening. You think, “I’ve been praying and believing for a year, five years, ten years. It’s never going to work out.”

Có bài ca trong đời hát rằng: “Con chim quí thì phải ở lồng son.” Không biết lời ca đó có tự bao giờ, từ bao nhiêu thời gian thủa trước. Nhưng cũng từ gốc thời gian ấy có lời trầm buồn của một bài thơ. Tiếng người thục nữ u uẩn trong cung điện lầu son nhìn mây thênh thang đi về cuối chiều.

You Will Be Noticed!


You see a man skilled at his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.“(Proverbs 22:29)

There was an article out recently that talked about how to reduce the risk of being laid off. There are three main things that employers look for when deciding who to keep. They want to keep people who are positive, people who are versatile, and people who are always improving.

Free To Be You


Forgiveness is a choice, but not an option.

A ship was sailing on a night of pitch-black darkness. Suddenly, the captain noticed a bright light directly in front of him, and he knew that his ship was on a collision course with the light. He rushed to the radio and sent an urgent message, demanding that the vessel change its course ten degrees east.

The sisters were not only generous hostesses but also bold ones. At this point, Jesus was walking about with a price on His head. He was an outlaw. His picture was in every post office. They hardly would find themselves in good favor with the police, the Temple authorities, and probably the Romans.

Who Said that a Priest’s Life Was Boring?


It’s been 31 days since I’ve flown down to Georgia to live with Cha Thông (Fr. Martino) for the summer. Most of my friends were curious as to why I was staying back with Cha after the mission trip this past May and my answer was simply, “I’m 20 years old, entering my third year at university, and have no girlfriend(s) to attend to so why not live with Cha to see if God is calling me.” Of course this was followed up by friendly laughter amongst my friends and I, but it is what is and if God wants me to carry this enormous cross and consider the priesthood then I might as well stay with a priest that I would consider to be my spiritual father in the long run!

One Small Step, One Giant Leap


Adversity often pushes us into our divine destiny.

Many people respond negatively to adversities and trouble, rather than believing that God can bring good out of the situation. I’m not saying God sends the trouble, but I am saying God will use any adversity you face to take you to a higher level; if you’ll just do your part and keep standing strong.
