God’s providence

TKC!

“God is eternal, not perpetual. Strictly speaking, He never foresees; He simply sees. Your ‘future’ is only an area … of His infinite Now.” CS Lewis

     God respects our freedom but he also intervenes.  He sees our future in his infinite now, but we are still totally free in our daily lives to choose the path.  All a mystery, with God’s love in the background!

God bless,

Fr. Michael Sliney, LC

Dying to ourselves

TKC!

“The Christian life is simply a process of having your natural self changed into a Christ self, and that this process goes on very far inside. One’s most private wishes, one’s point of view, are the things that have to be changed.” CS Lewis

    For this transformation to take place, we need to die to ourselves…in very particular and very personal ways, so that Christ can fully live in us.

God bless,

Allow Christ to challenge you!

Thy Kingdom Come!

Dear Friends in Christ,

     “Do not be afraid of Christ!…He does not take away your identity; he does not dishonor, debase, or affront your reason; he does not oppress your freedom!”  (St. Pope John Paul II, May 21, 1983)

     My High School Cross Country coach worked us hard.  Long runs through the city of Birmingham, hard training sessions up and down rugged and mountainous paths…always demanding and focusing on details of technique.  Our team was consistently one of the best in the State, and we all knew our coach was the key to our success.  Don’t be afraid of Christ!  He will challenge you, and show you a more difficult path at times, because he wants you to win the battle against your passions and the temptations of the world.  He wants you to experience the peace and fulfillment that come from a generous surrender to God’s plan. In short, he wants to bring out the best in you!

God bless,

Fr. Michael Sliney, LC

Clear language

TKC!

“Always try to use the language so as to make quite clear what you mean and make sure your sentence couldn’t mean anything else.” ~ C.S. Lewis

     In our daily communication with each other and especially, parents with their kids, we need to find a language that will make sense and be easily understood.  This takes effort and this is a very real tangible way of loving.

God bless,

Fr. Michael Sliney, LC
