Praying in Hobby Lobby

This morning I received a daily inspiration in my email and read it to my dad. As Christians the poor should have a place in our lives. Reflect on these words from St. Augustine, “Give to the poor, I’m begging you, I’m warning you, I’m commanding you, I’m ordering you.” I thought about what it […]

The Heart of the Matter
