Good morning, Bruce,
Interesting how a thought or word can resonate with you..Today In my prayer journal I will think /write about my plan for my relationship with God. I speak to Him and pray daily but I have never given it great thought. Today is the day. Thank you.

Thank you Bruce for this message concerning Temptation! Yes there are many forms of temptation and there can be difficulties and even arguments when trying to express your disapproval, or even trying to avoid them! I really do need another plan than the one I have already got! As this plan hasn’t really lead to any spiritual discussions, enlightenment concerning my faith, or awakening of talents that can be used for God’s glory for me. I will have to seriously think and pray for the next plan that will replace this one, despite liking being in the company of others.Could… Read more »

Thank you! Our family has a person where everything must be done for him because of his mental and physical challenges. Where am I falling short in this process of assisting? Help me Lord to be a part of this team. It’s tempting to look the other way. Where am I falling short? Help me to be a faith builder in this family. Amen.

Also the Pope, has given a blow to the Church, so many are gay, in the youth, and many parents are affected with this situation, and will not abandon their kids. How will the church survive ,now.

Well, by not accepting gay people, their are so many , they are able to attend but not take communion and get married either. Now, my priest says love the sinner, hate the sin. A young man I know says he hates this. Not allowing priests to marry why, it is a lonely life, would it matter to God, how do we really know what he thinks. It is not like the Pope is getting emails. It is a man in charge of the church , that make these rules. And changes things, like did he get an email saying… Read more »

I am not Roman Catholic, however I believe Francis is trying hard to bring the RC church into the 21st century and not only try to right past wrongs but try to prevent them from happening again. RC priests do not hold a monopoly on child molestation. At least one Salvation Army officer was convicted, several Anglican priests have been convicted as well as ministers from other denominations. It is disgusting when those in authority – priests, therapists, medical people – take advantage sexually over those who trust them. Francis has said gays are welcome in the church and can… Read more »

That talk is one I needed to hear. I’ve been trying to give up on fantasy imaginings for years. In my devotional book I Am With You , Jesus calls them vain imaginings. The last two weeks have been good but Satan isn’t finished with me yet and I need to confess again.
We have to ring the parish office for a 10 minute confession slot appointment. Like many parishes now adays we only have the one PP.

Hi Bruce, I fell behind for various reasons, internet failure, health problems needing me to travel long distances to my specialist but I was determined I would catch up – almost there. I am glad I did for your ministry is very good, the best I have heard for a long time. I was a preacher for denomination before I became a Catholic. Prayer for myself I am already doing, more for a greater relationship with my heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, my Redeemer and the Holy Spirit my best friend. I will ask for prayer for the Catholic Church I… Read more »
