Isaiah 55:1-3 God explains how this future covenant will work: “Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness.

Clumsy Theosis - Abraham: The Promise of a Great Nation, Great Name, and Worldwide Blessing

February 14, 2021

Abraham is the man of the hour during week four of our series on salvation history. And there are a lot of moving parts to his story: Before he was Abraham he was Abram. He was called out into the wilderness by God. He's responsible for the practice of circumcision. He sent his illegitimate son away. And was asked by God to slay his only-begotten (legitimate) son as a sacrifice. Are all these events random or do they fit together, and how? Richaél Lucero connects the dots to show the bigger picture at work.

Clumsy Theosis - The Letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch: Link Between the Apostles and the Church Fathers

October 19, 2020

“Ad fontes” is Latin for “back to the sources.” Returning to the sources of the Catholic Church is the best way to learn about the Faith. After the scriptures, St. Ignatius of Antioch is the perfect place to start. He wrote seven letters while escorted to Rome from Antioch to be martyred. They paint a vivid picture of the Catholic Church after the time of the Apostles. Listen as Richaél Lucero points out some of her favorite parts in these need-to-read Catholic letters.

Please Him under whom you fight, from Whom you receive your wages. Let none of you be found a deserter. Let your baptism be your armour; your faith be your helmet; your love be your spear; your patience as a complete panoply. ...
To sum up: be long-suffering towards one another and gentle, as God is with you.” -Letter of St. Ignatius to St. Polycarp
