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.

Silence

Like a leaf in a slow dance with the Wind, we are carried in the breath of God even in the turmoil. Preparing for Advent in Silence

Hearts sing of Christ our King

God is working in so many people’s lives right now. He has a special affection for those suffering, like what a parent feels when their child cries those huge alligator tears. It comes from a special space in His heart. And we all have a little of that in our hearts too, made in His image. What if we were to embrace that rather than suppress or avoid it?

Beginning anew

Imperfect: as long as we keep trying, we still get to be part of that incredible orchestra conducted by God, through whom all imperfection is made beautiful.

Saints in our midst

We must first recognize saintliness to be one. The work of salvation is merely a disposition of heart. No one is perfected in isolation of the other; we are perfected together. Saints in our midst.

A season of death? No, a season of life!

This triduum kicks off a month of recalling our loved ones who have gone before us. It is a time of remembering and of healing. At the surface, we sorrow for our loss of their presence in our lives. Underneath, we sorrow for all the important conversations that didn’t take place when they were with us, but needed to…

Joseph, Mary and Me

In 2006, driving south on the freeway, a vehicle three times the size of mine pulled into my lane and should have wiped us off the face of the planet. St. Joseph stopped them and saved our lives.

Angels, Samaritans, and conversion

At first glance, it may seem odd to look at the scripture of the woman at the well in conjunction with celebrating our angels. But combined with a homily from St. John Chrysostom, and the help of our Guardian angel, we too can accept the transforming love of God.

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.
