The Face of Grace Project

Step out of the social and into the silence

 

Before you were conceived, God already planned for you to spend eternity with Him! He wants you to begin that life of peace now, this very day. So much time is spent searching for truth on the Internet and seeking connectedness in social media. How might your life change if you step out of that noise and into the silence with Him?

 

Grace works silently, smoothly, effortlessly. It is the small voice in the cave of Mt. Horeb. We must be still to hear its whisper. For this reason, The Face of Grace Project has no comments, no social endeavor, no human conversation. It is a place to read, reflect, consider that which brings peace and that which distressfully convicts, and to take both to silent conversation with God. All content is in strict accord with the doctrine and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, which is the lived Christian experience to the full.

Presence

Peace, Truth, Relationship…all for which you search is found in our Trinitarian God. Your Father intends for you to live in His Love now, experiencing His presence with each breath. This is the purpose of the Christian life. Presence is a space for guidance on prayer, discernment, and God’s teachings that will help you dispose yourself to His loving grace.

 

Across the ages

 

 

This “Grace-space” shares God’s Wisdom revealed in Sacred Scripture and taught for 2000 years by the saints and Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. The only path to Holiness is to live His Truth, which is timeless. Truth cannot be relativized, but it is always relevant and can be embraced in the simple moments of our daily lives. This Grace-space provides the spiritual guidance of the Holy ones, our Catholic heritage, who are already accompanying you and desire to help you on your journey.

Life, Work and the World

We are God’s project, the clay in the Potter’s hands. Made Holy through Baptism, we grow relationship with God through prayer and the Sacraments. He does more than just walk by our side. He leads the way when we give Him our hand. He carries us when we surrender to Him. His Spirit heals us and fills us with Himself. God transforms us into the Face of Grace. It is through us that He desires to change the world. We become His beacon to bring others to Him, to Salvation itself.

 

Change, then, must begin first in us.

Ora et Labora, Prayer and Work

In St. Benedict’s rule for living monastic life, one finds many pearls of wisdom for living in our domestic church.

Finding God in all things

God has designed complementarity across personalities and purposes that serve to bring order and harmony in the cosmos. All of this is His plan for Divine Providence, His infinite wisdom of His Divine Mind exhibited only in us who are created in His image.

Thus, if you did not exist, there would something of the wisdom of God that the world would never know, hidden from the entire cosmos. Every life matters, including yours.

Living Heroically: The Life (and Lifestyle) of the Venerable Mary Ward

Summertime brings summer reading, and the Catholic saints of the underground English Church give us a model for struggling with joy today in our own lives. Mary Ward is a saint for our times.

The better-good choice

For the Christian seeking to grow closer to God, the difficulty in decision making isn’t in choosing something good. It is in making the right choice, the better-good choice. Part of the discernment process should be a test to find where love is in your heart vs. where focus is on yourself and your needs…

A mother’s heart

It is said that a mother is only as happy as her least-happy child. But no mother sorrows alone; Mary suffers with us. The sword that pierced your heart also pierces hers. And when Mary holds your child, she holds Jesus in your child’s heart. Just as nothing can separate her heart from His, neither can her heart be separated from your child.

Who is this God?

The beauty and majesty of spring weather remind us of the power and might of God. This is the spiritual reality within which we live, survive, and thrive. In the sky and in our heart, dark clouds beckoning to threaten our existence play a sort of tug-o-war with the sun, of whom we catch glimpses just often enough to give hope for the calm to come.

Our Father’s Embrace

On this Trinity Sunday, don’t fret if you are unable to understand (let alone explain) the nature of the Trinity! Allow yourself to be scooped up into your Father’s embrace and share that love with others. 😊

Our Mission & Vision

Bringing souls to Christ and Christ to souls by sharing the lived experience of the Christian life.

Belonging is not a place; it is a person: Jesus Christ. Our baptized souls, sanctified by the grace of the Eucharist, joined in Him, share through Him the grace of our everyday life. The Face of Grace Project provides help to understand and dispose yourself to beholding the Face of God in the Grace of the Present Moment. In Him is where you have always belonged.
