In the Book of Revelation 3:16 "So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth." Friar John Bamman walks us through this difficult passage: What does it mean to be hot or cold? How can we navigate those times when we feel lukewarm? How do we know if we are doing what God wants us to do? From young adults to middle-age to those approaching the end of their lives, Fr. John has ideas that we can all use.
Since the 1960s we've often heard the word peace, but not seen much of it. But when St. Paul uses the word, it means something deeper and more profound than we think. Friar Jude Winkler explains the peace that comes from an encounter with Jesus.
Ministry is our response to Jesus' commands. St. Francis said: "The Lord God gave me the grace to work." Friar Tim Kulbicki discusses how the Friars respond to the needs of the times in deciding the tasks to be accomplished, then work on their assigned duties (while remembering their spiritual and fraternal lives), humbly doing the things the Church and the community need them to do.
