I walked up to these images during mass and pointed to the space between them saying, "This is the place between the Hearts of Jesus and Mary where suffering can be transformed by love," and as I walked away a plant smashed to the ground. I asked for forgiveness and when I turned back around to look at the images the altar boy had already cleaned up. I said thank you for cleaning up my mistakes. "This is how Jesus and Mary clean up our mistakes and transform misery into mercy."

Davao Durian anyone? They saw you haven't really arrived in Davao unless you've had Durian, a local tropical fruit, iconically identified with the local culture. Some things I learned about Davao: -Largest geographical city limits in the world. -Ranked 4th safest city in the world. -2nd ranked cleanest water in the world. -911 emergency response is free with a response rate on par with the US and Europe. -All 11 local indigenous tribes are represented with a Deputy Mayor from each tribe, which has greatly insured peace and equanimity. -Smoking is outlawed in the city, universal 30km/hr speed limit, and no fireworks permitted. -Harsh laws punishing criminals, including CCTV cameras greatly deter crime.

This is Travis and Melissa Seilhan. They answered God's call to leave the comforts of their own home and people and, with their 6 children, serve the Lord as a Catholic Missionary Family. Daily they care for the sick and the wounded of all who come to them in a rural part of Northern Mindanao, Philippines, feed hungry street children, and counsel families who come looking for help. I stayed with them for three days but was deeply inspired by their joyful spirit relying on God's grace and providence. Please pray for them and support them in whatever way you can. http://ift.tt/1WoggWW

FOLLOW ME: God came to call sinners not the righteous. Those who believe themselves well, who think themselves righteous in the conceit of their hearts, do not permit God to call them or heal them. Due to sin's wounds there are deep presumptuous parts of us, fortressed up in wounded pride, keeping God at bay. Lent is the time of Grace and Mercy where God's patient kindness disarms us, shows us we need the love that chooses and heals, and then marvelously makes us God's instruments in calling the lost home and healing the wounded.

Missionary life: to go to the people where they are at, speaking their language, using their interior associations, and loving them the way they know how to receive love so that the Eucharistic Jesus can me made most present in their lives for conversion, holiness, and mercy that is the sign of God on earth as he is in heaven.

LOVE OR LUST??? Besides radiating joy, cultivating goodness, and seeking to surround yourselves with the culture of beauty, and the constant choosing to be immersed in what edifies and ennobles your family, It takes mighty strength, realistic self-assessment expressed in self-denial, prayer, fasting, and practical creative planning to protect yourself and your loved ones in the war of lust and human indignities waged against the soul of mankind.
