Weekly Wisdom
In his Monday, August 31st homily, Fr. Yesalonia invites us to be "women and men who serve one another." "Are we the ones that are imposing the burdens on the poor? Are we the ones that captive those unjustly? Are we the ones involved in oppression? Those are the ways in which we can take a stand with conviction and be rather eloquent as well. In simple ways, in direct ways, in compassionate and merciful ways."
In this episode, Pastoral Associate Brian Pinter explores "Tending Our Emotional Maturity." Finding joy in life, fostering healthy relationships, and being fruitful requires that we nurture our emotional maturity. We examine some traits of the emotionally mature.
