    Impact of Humility on Leadership

    Indeed, humility is such a weapon which can help to win the hearts of people. Without humility, any leader can rule the world but can never touch the hearts of people. Therefore, it must be a significant feature of any leadership. In this way, this world can be taken to the right path as well as people can taste the true meaning of good leadership. Humble leaders always put others first before themselves . They take care of the company and employees as part of their job responsibility. Setting aside egos can be hard to swallow, and it takes practice, but it gives opportunities for employees, companies, and ourselves to grow as a good humble leader in Christ.

  • Eucharistic Adoration: Spending time with Jesus

    Eucharistic Adoration: Spending time with Jesus

    Eucharistic Adoration is one of the most important practices in our Catholic Church. During adoration, we are praising and spending time with the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ, our King and Saviour. Spending time in adoration can bring us peace, consolation, joy, and healing. God is indeed found everywhere and even in the silence of our heart we can be in His presence, but the Eucharist is Jesus himself. What a gift it is to be able to visit with Jesus every day of our lives.

    Three Ways to Prepare for Lent

    Lent is a time of detox. It’s a time to step back from the fray and examine our souls. In this article, I’d like to propose that we start preparing for Lent now so we set ourselves up for success and realistic expectations when the season comes. Here are some ways to do that:

    1. Adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Find an Adoration chapel, and pray there some time before Lent. This will provide the proper environment to quiet your heart and hear what God is calling you to do this Lent. 
    2. Take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Jesus began his ministry by saying “Repent, the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2). It’s never a bad time to heed His words. 
    3. Restart, recharge, or reconsider your New Year’s Resolution with a spiritual boost. Sometimes a closer look at our souls could provide the renewal we were missing earlier in the year.

      The Three Pillars of Lent: Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving

      Lent is here, a cycle of profound conversion and "spiritual health check-up." Lent is a time to grow in and strengthen our faith and to welcome new brothers and sisters into our community of faith. No doubt, we should intentionally work on our conversion every day. Still, these 40 days are extraordinary, focused on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday. We prepare our hearts to celebrate the miracle of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ at Easter.

      Catholics are called to actively seek the face of God and His graces during this time through three main pillars, Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving. But why do we need to do them? How do they help us prepare for the big day?

      What Is Ash Wednesday? Why Do Christians Celebrate Ash Wednesday?

      Ash Wednesday is considered one of the most popular and essential sacred days in the liturgical calendar. It marks the beginning of the season of Lent for many Christians, more specifically for the Catholic Church. The season of Lent is an opportune time to reflect on the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is also a call for Christians to admit their sins, do penance, and renew their baptismal promises which happen on Easter Vigil, which has often been described as the “Mother of All Vigils.”

      Saint Valentine: A Celebration of Love and Faith

      As we celebrate Valentine's Day and the life of Saint Valentine, we are reminded of the importance of love and compassion in our lives. Whether we are in a romantic relationship or not, we can all strive to love and care for others, just as Saint Valentine did. So, as we reflect on the legacy of Saint Valentine and the central role of love in our faith, let us strive to embody the love and compassion that he embodied, and that is so beautifully expressed in the Bible. Let us show love and kindness to those around us, and let us celebrate the power of love to transform and heal our world.

      The First Nativity Scene, inspired by St. Francis of Assisi

      The story of the first manger reminds us that we should follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit. This deep love and devotion for the most memorable birth in history led this saint to create a tradition shared by many Christian denominations today. By appreciating its beauty, we are reminded that the promised Messiah and King of the World was born in a humble manger in Bethlehem. He did not want to be boastful about His power but tried to make it known that He was the servant of all. We rejoice in the birth of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. He is the Joy of the World!

      What is the Story behind Advent?

      Advent is a period of preparation to receive the Messiah through prayer, penance, almsgiving, and hope. Advent comes from the Latin Adventus, which means "coming"; We ready our hearts to receive Jesus, The Light of The World. For four consecutive Sundays, we remember the first coming of Our Saviour and announce His second coming.
