Why Grace is Amazing [Podcast #006]

Grace is a small word, but rich in meaning. Unfortunately, Catholics are often ignorant when it comes to grace. We don't know what it means, where we get it, or how it works in our lives. Today on the podcast we dive deeper into the topic of God's grace.

Promise of the Week

“Those who serve God to please him are accepted; their petition reaches the clouds.”

~ Sirach 35:20

Catholic Fact

Halloween is Catholic!? Yes, it’s true. Many Catholics and Christians are unsure about how to approach Halloween, but the truth is that it is an important day in the Church and it has been for centuries. So there’s nothing to fear about Halloween. It is a day that we should celebrate as Catholics. In the podcast I discuss the Catholic roots of Halloween and refer to a post I wrote a couple years back about the holiday that has many Christians confused. Here’s a link to that post: A Very Hallow E’en.

Why Grace is Amazing

We know our purpose is to become saints, that’s why God created us, but why do we feel so inferior? Why do we fail at living a holy life? Most of the time, it’s because we try to do it all on our own. God wants us to depend on Him and He freely offers us His grace to be able achieve His vision of us. St. Paul helps to see this in 1 Corinthians 10:13 and Romans 7:18-25. I also allude to the famous quote from St. Irenaeus: “The glory of God is man fully alive; and the life of man is the vision of God.”


Want a Better Way to Lead Your Friends and Family to God?

Do you have friends and family members who have left the Church, have turned their backs on God, and want nothing to do with their faith?

I do. And I’m sure you do too. So how do you get this message across to someone who doesn’t want to hear it? How do you share your faith with people in a way that will lead them to life change?
