Realizing Our True Identity

The hardest thing for us to believe may be this: that God is good, even when things are not as they should be — for example, when someone we love is in difficulty, confused about the truth and perhaps acting on this confusion. But this parable reassures us that nothing falls outside of God’s providence or the reach of his grace.

Stepping Forward in Courage

Saint John Paul II once said about Courage International, “Courage is doing the work of God.” Courage International strives to go forward, proclaiming the beauty and hope found in our Church’s teachings. It proclaims that chastity is not only possible, but can make our lives more meaningful, peaceful, and joy-filled once it is embraced and maintained. I have experienced it personally, and have seen the fruits of this in many Courage members. Now that I am back in the United States and reflecting on our beautiful grace-filled experience with Pope Francis on St. Peter’s Square, I see this as a personal confirmation that Courage International is most assuredly “doing the work of God.”
