Monthly Inspiration

Monthly Inspiration – January 2021

On the Threshold of January 2021 The Christmas decorations are back in their boxes and the New Year is here with a new “normal routine”.

You were all the cement that kept the bricks of society together. Secondly, the gift of a living faith that produces fruits like prayer and solidarity continues to be a precious instrument of comfort, joy, and healing. The...
