    "Each of us have a day on which our sun will set, and on that day we shall be confronted with our eternal destiny. Our Creator doesn't want us to face that day with doubt or fear, but with confidence in His paternal love. He has given us this life to discover Him, and has left a paper trail so clear than even the simplest child could trace its origins." Brother Giacomo

    "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life in active relationship with God? Have you ever heard that He is inviting you each day to do just this? He loves you and sent His Son to die for you, but He will never force Himself upon you. Therefore, if you want to know Him you must seek Him; and if you do, you will find Him, for this is His promise to you." Brother Giacomo

    "What I can share from personal experience, is that the love which comes from God is unmatched by any other; and what I can recommend with confidence, is that you owe it to yourself and to those you care about, to experience this love." Brother Giacomo

    "You can pursue all manner of experiences, and many do. Yet nothing can compare with the pure joy which comes from discovering that the God of the Bible exists, and that He is not only willing to receive you, but longs to do so." Brother Giacomo

    'Where Christianity is embraced, liberty and justice ensue, but where there is no regard for God, tyranny prevails. The One who created us says: "Seek me while I may be found, and call upon me while I am near." — Brother Giacomo

    'In a sea of uncertainty, the prospect of land offers the hope of calm and stability. So too for the person of faith does God provide these same assurances, for our Lord has said of Himself: "Is there any God besides me? Indeed there is no other rock; I know not one." And as King David declared: "The Lord is my rock and my fortress, He is my deliverer and the One in whom I trust."
    — Brother Giacomo

    'The wisest of philosophers, physicians, scientists, mathematicians, biologists, anthropologists and astronomers, share one thing in common — a belief that the intricate complexity of the world we inhabit, and its surrounding universe, is utterly impossible outside of intelligent design. And they are right; for as the Scriptures declare: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1) Brother Giacomo

    'Thus says the Lord who created you: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, also the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, your Saviour." Almighty God through the Prophet Isaiah

    "I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, He will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather He will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?'"

    "Imagine the inexpressible joy and gratitude an abandoned child would experience if they were lifted out of bleak suffering by adoptive parents who lavished them with love, care and affection. Would you not be happy, even overjoyed, for the sake of the child? Of course, any normal person would be. Likewise, my heart's desire for you is that you encounter your Eternal Father, that He too may lavish His love, care and affection upon you, as it was for this purpose that He created you."

    "Imagine if you can, being convicted of a most heinous crime, something so terrible that you could never again lift your head high. Imagine too that the guilt and shame of this crime hung around you like a leaden rope from which you were never free. Now imagine being completely and utterly exonerated of this crime and that your guilt and shame were altogether erased. Well, that is exactly what Jesus Christ came to do! He is God's greatest gift to mankind, the One who surrendered His own life so that you may be free."

    "God sending His Son to cancel our debt of sin is the costliest Christmas gift we shall ever receive, for Christ literally gave Himself for us. And what does this cost us in return? Practically nothing. Oh yes, a little mocking here and there from those who struggle to understand our devotion to God; a small price when compared to the suffering of our Lord and the treasure of eternity we have received."

    "Can you live your life without talking to God? Sure you can. But be warned, of all the things you regret, this will top the list. Remember, being in a relationship with God is not the same as attending church. It is about seeking God and finding Him and then doing what He says, and while the church should help, the truth is we often fail. You must therefore find God for yourself. Be encouraged though, for you have been given a compass to aid you, and that compass is the Bible." Brother Giacomo

    'We encounter many turns along life's way; when these come we do well to remember the words of Christ who said, "Broad is the road which leads to destruction and many are those who follow it, but narrow and difficult is the path which leads to life, and few are they who find it." Let us therefore do everything to be found among those who choose the right path.' Brother Giacomo
