  • "The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He fulfils the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cry and He rescues them." King David

    • '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

                    • "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

                      • "A man who buys a horse would not be considered unreasonable should he ask to test it before making his payment. Similarly, how can we know whether religion is for us, unless we first experience that which God has to offer?" Brother Giacomo

                        • "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." Brother Giacomo

                          • "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."
                            Brother Giacomo

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."
