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.

forgiveness. Once He has freed us, it is then that we can gratefully receive
the counsels of the Holy Spirit which show us our path and gives us peace with
God, ourselves and others.
Do not plot evil against your neighbors, when they live at peace with
you. Proverbs 3: 29
is the same prayer the Christ prayed every morning and tells us that God is to

with all your strength.
is the living example of God’s love for us. His heart could not rest
until He repaid our debt. His soul was so tormented for love of us that
He sweated blood in the garden for us. His mind was ever on us when He
multiplied the loaves or healed the sick and with all His strength He
offered his life as an eternal sacrifice before the Father. He for love of us
took the cup and drank it to the dregs during His passion.
