Side by Side – Day 24 “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”

Gregory Wasinski Uncategorized

Love makes us do crazy things doesn’t it? Especially if it is pure. We all have the ability to witness those in relationships who have lived their vocation to love in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, with death being the only thing to make them apart. I’m a hopeless romantic who loves to see the …

Side by Side – Day 20 “Blessed Mother”

Gregory Wasinski Uncategorized

Some denominations of Christianity hold a very negative view of the Catholic recognition of Mary as the mother of God (Christ in His humanness). I don’t understand that.

The Father knew this would be part of our humanness, so the Spirit leads His Son, Jesus, into the desert to be tempted before he begins …

Side by Side – Day 4 “Perfectly Imperfect”

Greg Wasinski Uncategorized

“I’m not as holy as that person.” “God could never love someone like me.” “My life is a mess, I can’t even think about praying.” These are all expressions I’ve heard from people at one time or another. It’s sad to me because they’re missing the point of the healing love found in Jesus Christ. We don’t have to have …
