Your support makes our mission possible!
Your gift supports the vision of a Christian culture that utilizes "the passions" to foster intimacy with Christ and unity with his Church.
Mission EDIFY operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Women's Non-profit Alliance, a 501(c)3 parent organization.
What are the passions?
"The passions are the feelings, the emotions or the movement of the sensible appetite--natural components of human psychology--which incline a person to act or not act in view of what is perceived as good or evil. The principle passions are love and hatred, desire and fear, joy, sadness, and anger."
(Compendium CCC, 370. Libreria Editrice Vaticana, 2006) The Compendioum's source on this topic is the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas.
Well hello there! Happy New Year . . . Peace and good! I was home today kung-foo fighting a wicked allergy attack, denying that it's anything other than allegies, and updating my website. Changes are underway.
Home page is a work in progress, and very soon I'll add contact wendy to the navigation bar.
Have a look around at what I've added. New conversations are about to begin. The topic: forgiveness. Yep, we're taking it out of the box. We're going to unpack and hold to the light how we [the church] teach and what we say about forgiveness. We'll examine some common phrases spoken from pulpits that are edifying and what is unknowingly hurtful.
The theme I am embracing and presenting to you for the new year is: It's time.
More on this later. From what I understand it will take a week or so to make some final changes to my homepage and then we'll kick off. Meanwhile, tomorrow I'm sharing a Youtube video with you that I'm sure you'll find practical and helpful and all that jazz.
Speak up. Speak out. It's time!
It's also cold!
