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.
"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
--The Gospel of St. Thomas Logian
Confession is the springboard to healing. Often times, it's what we don't tell God that hinders healing and the ability to forgive. When I share my thoughts with God, He responds. In His presence I receive a fresh perspective of myself and others. In His presence my heart concedes He has my best interest at heart. I dare to believe, really believe, He, too, believes in me. Flawed, fragile, desperate-for-Jesus me.
Is there something you need to say to God, but you've been puting it off? I encourage you to find a quiet place today. Take a few minutes, and tell Him.
