The Gift of Grace

Why are steroids illegal for athletes?

Because they give the athlete an unfair advantage.

Grace is God’s gift to us that gives us an unfair advantage over the flesh, over the world and over the enemy.

  • 1 Peter 5:8 – “Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

GOD WANTS US TO HAVE AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE!!

Marriage Coaching gives couples the tools to tap into the grace available through the Sacrament of Marriage.

“Morally, the water jar that the Samaritan woman drops at the well is the fallen desire of man, that draws pleasure from the dark wells of the world but is never satisfied for long. Conversion to Christ moves us, like the Samaritan woman, (John 4:28) to renounce the world, leave behind the desires of our earthen vessels and follow a new way of life.”  St. Augustine

Marriage is a visible sign
of God’s grace and presence in the world

When a man and a woman marry in the Catholic Church, they are not just entering into a legal contract; they are participating in a sacred and holy act that is infused with divine grace.

God’s grace in marriage is a profound and transformative reality that sanctifies the marital relationship, enriches it with divine love, and provides the strength and guidance needed to live out the marital vows faithfully. It is a reminder that marriage is not just a human institution but a sacred union that reflects the love of Christ for His Church.
