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.

It is not good that man should be alone

We are commanded to allow God to first love us; to be loved. The overflow of that infinite love is the lifeblood by which we are to live every aspect of our lives. In marriage, the fruit of that love is children. The sacramental bond brings with it graces specific to the couple and family that enable them to live out God’s will within their domestic church.

Our union with God is critical to living out our vocation because it is our vocation.

Blessed Marie of the Incarnation: a saint for our times

This saintly royal gave of herself tirelessly to bring God’s love to others. Friend of the poor, the prostitutes, the clergy and the saints of her time, her prayer for conversion of lost souls is timely for us today.

Like Father, Like Son

I sometimes have parts of a favorite litany rolling around in the back of my mind. One of those prayers is the Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. The entire litany pounds into my heart how much the Father and the Son personally love me: fully, unconditionally, and without limits. Consecration and enthronement in the home of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a natural response to that.

What Corpus Christi means to me (and you too!)

Jesus took on all of humanity’s offenses against God past, present and future, and atoned for us by His horrendous crucifixion. By His resurrection and ascension, He was enthroned as King over all of creation and brought our humanity, wounds and all, into the Trinitarian mystery. And now He wants to personally perfect each of us individually so as to join in union with God, which has always been our destiny.

The Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus

The Feast of the Precious blood of Jesus was established for all of Christendom to be the first Sunday in July by Pope Pius IX. However, its origin is in the scriptures and devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus goes back to the beginning of our Catholic heritage. The Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus is one of the most common devotions today. It is fruitful to meditate upon each sentence and consider what this means in terms of the personal love each person of the Trinity has for you.

Lost Opportunity Cost

In business, we measure the costs of lost opportunities. In life, the cost of some lost opportunities are immeasurable.

The Pentecost of the heart

We entered the pandemic a world of consumerism, materialism, with all things disposable. Every means was available to have what we wanted, when we wanted, and no cost too high. The old norm of saving for a raining day became ‘buy now and pay for it later’. Yet we may possess something, but it isn’t ours until we pay the price for it.

Jesus paid the price for us so that God could possess us by us possessing more of Him within us. As He transforms us into Himself, we become vessels of Peace.

We think of peace as an adjective. Peace is a noun. It is a person, God. By our Baptism, we are daughters and sons of Peace. Mary, Mother of Peace, teach us to be receptive of Him so that, through us, Peace may reside in this world once again.

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.
