Minute Meditations
Plunge of Faith Minute Meditations
If you remain stagnant in your faith, you’ll wither and die. Instead of sticking around in the sand dunes, dive into the ocean of faith. The more you live the faith, the deeper will be your desire to grow closer to God.

American Catholic Blog To avoid running aground on the rocks, our spiritual life cannot be
reduced to a few religious moments. In the succession of days and 
seasons, in the unfolding of times and events, we learn to see ourselves by looking to the One who does not pass away: spirituality is a return to the essential, to that good that no one can take from us, the one truly necessary thing.
