fr. phil ching, glory, heaven, suffering
Suffering in this life is unavoidable. No matter the path, we will face it. Fr. Phil highlights St. Peter's words, “It is better to suffer for doing good, if that be the will of God, than for doing evil” (1 Peter 3:17). The unjust suffering we endure out of love for God will produce glory within us (Romans 8:14-18). If choosing to live apart from God will still produce suffering, why not suffer for that which brings us closer to Heaven?

baptism, dn. tracy esper, good shepherd, jesus, life, name, sheep, truth, vocation, way
Deacon Tracy shares how much we are in need of a shepherd like Jesus who is and will always be the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Good Shepherd who reaches out to us, His sheep. He seeks out the strays and leads the lost to Eternal Life. While His voice does not give up on us, it is we who often choose not to hear His voice. Following Jesus also means discerning one's vocation in life.
