This blog is based on references in the Bible to fear. God wills that we “BE NOT AFRAID”. Many theologians state that the eighth deadly sin is fear. It is fear and its natural animal reaction to fight or flight that is the root cause of our failings to create a Kingdom of God on earth. By “the power of the Holy Spirit” we can be witnesses and “communicators” of a new and redeemed humanity “even to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:7 8). This blog is dedicated to Mary the Mother of God.

objects to fulfill men’s lusts. This
could even include our selection of music and TV shows we watch.
We could also offer our prayers for these women by a
monthly fast; thus giving up a portion of our body to redeem their bodies for the
