  • "Seasons change, not only in the world around us, but also within our lives. In nature, winter often represents a time of drawing upon previously stored reserves. Similarly, there are times when circumstances compel us to draw upon our reserves. But what about those who have no reserves? This is when many come to realise their need of God, and which is one of the reasons He is so popular in the developing world. The good news is that when you need Him, He will be there for you, because this is His nature, the nature of a faithful, loving Father. All the more reason then to make sure you become His child." Brother Giacomo

      • "Christmas celebrates the earthly commencement of God's rescue plan for humanity. Through His Son Jesus, all mankind has access to His forgiveness as well as the promise of eternal life. But to enjoy this promise we must connect ourselves to the rescuer; even to the unwise this surely makes sense?" Brother Giacomo

          • 'New Beginnings: "Come now and let us reason together" says the Lord. "Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." This is the offer of a generous God towards a sinful and rebellious world. It is an offer we don't deserve; it is a great offer, the best offer, and the time is now upon us to finally do what is right and make peace with God through Jesus Christ. We can make no better choice in this life.' Frate Sebastiano

            • "Seeing Clearly: Your life is influenced in no small part by your perspective, because how you see determines how you understand. When Christ is at the centre of your heart, believe me, you are going to see this world differently." Frate Sebastiano

              • "Most plants perish when exposed to harsh environments, yet there are some which flourish in such conditions. Often, the difference between the two is resilience. No one will give you greater resilience to the challenges of this life than the One who overcame all in order to set you free. His name is Jesus, and He waits patiently for you to invite Him to be a part of your life." Brother Giacomo

                • "Just as someone who has never tasted a pomegranate is unqualified to comment on its flavour, so those who have yet to encounter Christ are unqualified to comment on whether He is worth following. You may change that by asking Him to make Himself known to you. Once you encounter Him, then and only then, can you honestly determine whether He is worthy of your affection."
                  Frate Sebastiano

                  • The Value of Knowing God: 'If it were possible to know God, do you think this would be advantageous to you? God has said, "You will find me when you seek me with all your heart." Is this is too high a price to pay for knowing the Author of Life? Do you know why you were created in God's image? It is because you are His child. Come therefore and be united with He who loves you beyond measure, for this union with God is the very reason you were created.' Frate Sebastiano

                      • 'When darkness comes, the way forward may seem uncertain, our vision being obscured by circumstances which can diminish our view. In such times, it is vital to keep darkness in perspective, understanding that it will be replaced by the dawning light from which it must retreat. Jesus declared Himself to be the "Light of the World" and went on to say "Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." I encourage you to embrace this light which is Christ, and pray that His light may shine within you forever!' Frate Sebastiano

                                • "Just as very painting has an artist, every sculpture a sculptor and every structure a designer, so this world has an Architect. It is He who created you, knows everything about you and longs for you to invite Him into your heart, for He is not a God who forces Himself upon others, but has instead left innumerable clues and signs that we are the product of His creation." Brother Giacomo

These are the words of Jesus Christ to the first century church in modern-day Turkey; and these words our Lord continues to speak to all who are willing to receive Him. He has sent out the invitation, all that remains is our response.' Frate Sebastiano

Ignoring God in this life (the trend of the masses) is the pathway to destruction, while Christ is the gateway leading to eternal fellowship with God in His kingdom. I urge you to choose the latter."

                                          • "Since the time of Christ, the world has witnessed many rulers and kingdoms, many tyrants and empires. History has recorded the existence of great armies, influential families and century-old businesses. All of these have come and gone, but the Church, though persecuted, often ridiculed and at various times outlawed, still remains. In many towns and cities, her structures are those which have stood the longest. And yet, this is not the greatest witness, but rather we who are created in God's image and have been made for fellowship with Him, and creation itself, for these unequivocally declare the existence of a truly great and mighty God. Today, if you will hear His voice, then He is calling you into His family and inviting you to become His cherished child" Brother Giacomo

This is because the Bible is 'locked' to those who are unwilling to discover its truths. The Holy Spirit (whom we should ask to receive) is the key who unlocks the mystery of the Scriptures, and it is with His aid that the eyes of our understanding are opened." Brother Giacomo

When these come, they may appear overwhelming, like an unscalable mountain. But God is the One who is able to make a way, even where there seems to be no way. Seek Him, and know Him, because He loves you and has a solution for every trial and challenge you face.' Frate Sebastiano

Every parable, lesson and instruction, together with the example of His life, has thus far proven to be faultless, and I suspect this evaluation will remain unchanged. I have also discovered that for those who seek and embrace Him, Jesus becomes a transformative factor in their lives, and that this transformation is always for the better." Brother Giacomo
