Each time we make the Sign of the Cross, we recall Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection. It is a short Profession of Faith, but it reminds us of how much God loves us, by giving us his Son. When we make the Sign of the Cross, it is powerful, visual and meaningful. Read more →

- Let us not have hardened hearts
“O that today you would listen to his voice! Harden not your hearts.” Psalm 94:8 It is difficult to hear the Lord’s voice if our hearts are hardened. How do we know what the Lord is saying, if we are not able to hear him properly? Let us pray today that our Read more →
