I asked God if He was testing me–and once again I put my hands together to pray. Yet it was difficult to find my quiet place to talk with God while the devil was screaming in my ear.

Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
Setting a good example, sharing our joy and reflecting Christ back to others is in no way a violation of company policy I am aware of. There are extremes in everything, so organizing a Bible study group may not be the most appropriate choice. But letting others see Christ at work in you is the most fundamental and important way to open up about your faith at work.

The Catholic Briefcase
Prophets from Moses to Jesus, like Lincoln, accepted their God intuitively. They did not attempt to reason out his existence philosophically, nor did they try to discover Him by research and experiment. By their testimony, God revealed Himself to them and called them; and in moments of deep thought, of serious meditation and weighty concentration upon problems, they felt His presence and made it what they regarded as their guide.

And God Said,”Play Ball!”
Alabama football coach Mike Shula was a member of Catholic Campus church in Tuscaloosa but had to switch to another Catholic church in town after autograph hounds became too pushy, according to the Greg Larson radio show.

Someone has said that the greatest sin is to make God unattractive. Unfortunately, we can do this not only by the words we preach but more so by our very demeanor. Today we ask ourselves, ‘How approachable and kind am I to the people I live with, work with, serve or meet on the street? Do I reflect the amiable God I believe in?’
