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.

A time of transition

February is a month of transitions: late winter preparing for early spring; Lent preparing for Jesus’ passion and death. It begins, however, with a celebration of the return of God to the temple: The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord.

Marching for life as a way of life

The March for Life in Washington DC is complete, and the Church militant (you and I) are now prepared to carry God’s truth and love into our communities. And while this may seem impossible in an already-packed schedule, it is easier than it appears. What we need to do now is support one another and those around us in the smallest of ways

In 2023 say goodbye to your past

Reflecting upon my new year’s resolutions, I realized one is missing: giving up the ‘baggage’ from my past.

Resolution: Becoming Authentically Catholic

The Christmas octave draws to a close, but the Christmas season continues. The new year is often a time for planning large changes in life such as a job, residence, or financial goals; pledges to improve health and wellness; plans for diet, exercise, and more recently Eastern religious practices such as mindfulness are common. Yet our Catholic faith has always provided the lifestyle by which we will best flourish because true flourishing only comes by ordering our goals towards God.

Perhaps the best and most proper New Year’s resolution is simply to become authentically Catholic.

The Night of Miracles

The one and very same God who built the mountains, anchored the seas, and lit the heavens with stars will be born this very night. Yet He, the light of Glory, hid His glory and became small. He did not seek fame nor act in grandiose ways. He sought to hold close those who will embrace Him in their heart.

The O Antiphons

When I attended mass back in the 1990’s, the song O Come O Come Emmanuel was sung at every mass during Advent. I thought maybe it was our pastor’s favorite Christmas song! LOL! I didn’t know then about the O Antiphons…

Waiting for the Immaculata

“Venerable Fulton Sheen, delving deeper into the words of God’s messenger to Mary, explains to us that Saint Gabriel the Archangel is more profoundly asking, ‘In the name of God will you give to God a man; will you give to God this new note out of humanity with which...

Our Mission & Vision

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.
