Thanks Joe for the nice reflection and explanation. Let’s praise and thank the Giver of all life and all gifts.
This was a gem of a video – thank you Joe – I’m a Pastorsl Associate and am on line preparing more than 40 youngsters for Confirmation / I am going to encourage each one of them with this message – thank you – and the Holy Spirit for guiding me to listen and learn about ‘magis’ . Thank goodness
