Today, I'd like to share with you a meditation written by Venerable Cardinal Francis Nguyễn Văn Thuận. Cardinal Twan passed into eternity in 2002, and his life was very holy. Because of his faith, he was imprisoned by the Vietnamese government for 13 years. And this is why this meditation is so powerful. His meditation is titled: Why We Need Not Be Terrified.
Fear as we know is counter-productive in the spiritual life. That's why "be not afraid" is announced so many times in scripture, particularly by God's messengers, the angels, whose encounters with human beings are recorded in the holy scriptures.
Love casts out fear. Recall and never forget that in the end, faith, hope and love alone remain; and the greatest of these is love.
Enjoy this brief meditation.
Today's episode includes a FREE GIFT (right at the beginning) that you can take with you throughout your day! Also included is a guided meditation on the 10 Commandments, which together comprise the true foundation of social justice and a civil society.

Today's episode of EvangeliNation is interactive! You are invited to pray the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary with me in the beautiful language of the Church: Latin.

Join with me in praying the Rosary today.

The admonition not to be afraid is the first utterance inaugurating the coming of the new covenant in Christ. The phrase “fear not” or “be not afraid” resounds about 100 times from the pages of holy writ! Clearly, it is a central theme of scripture, and this is so perhaps because it is a fundamental theme of human experience. Tune in today for a 20-minute reflection on the anatomy of fear and faith and how to achieve the fulfillment of our deepest human longings.

Today's episode is a 30-minute mini-retreat meditation on Saint Joseph, foster-father of Jesus Christ and foster spiritual father of all us baptized into the Mystical Body of Christ.
St. Joseph has many beautiful titles sprung from the tradition of the Church, one of which can be said of no other human being: "Savior of the Savior." This does not mean that Joseph atoned for Jesus' sins as Jesus atones for ours. (We know that Jesus was without sin.) Rather, it refers to the very real protection St. Joseph lovingly and faithfully rendered to Jesus from the earliest moments of his life in the womb, throughout perilous journeys, and even reaching into the future to Christ's death on Calvary. In His Passion, Jesus displayed incredible forbearance, endurance, meekness, courage, and love--all virtues which were certainly inculcated in him by St. Joseph and were, no doubt, modeled after his earthly father's own virtues. "Like father like son" is an adage that can be applied to the human rearing and raising of the Savior of the world. For this reason, we ought to be grateful to St. Joseph for his faithfulness to grace in carrying out the mission given to him by the Triune God to care for and protect his foster son Jesus so that we might all be saved.

Did you know that there is a modern devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ that is being called "the greatest devotion of our time"? This devotion is a deeply mystical one, and the prayers and ideas associated with it are, quite frankly, startling.
In 1995, at exactly 3:00pm, the hour of Divine Mercy, Our Lord Jesus Christ called for the first time Barnabas Nwoye, a Catholic Christian teenager from Olo, Enugu State, Nigeria, and appealed to him to console Him and to adore His Precious Blood. The fruit of these favored encounters with Christ is a comprehensive set of prayers and way of life called "Devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ." A book outlining this devotion is available from Queenship Publishing ISBN 1-57918-272-0. This podcast introduces listeners to this life-changing devotion.

Are D.U.M.B.s, the coronavirus, and civil rights concerns all related in society today? What is the foundation of the legal system in America today? Are there aliens, and why is so much alien activity reported around deep underground military bases?
These questions and more are considered in today's podcast. Sound far-fetched or irrelevant to your day? It may be more pertinent than we can comprehend. Considering these things just may be the single-most important thing that you will do today and the single-most important thing we can understand as a nation and as a world of human beings all made beautifully for a glorious society called the Kingdom of God.

What’s in a name? Attached to your name is your reputation, your character, your personality, your past, present, and future. Naming plays an important role throughout salvation history, especially, in the case of the patriarchs called to enter into a holy covenant with God. There is also the naming that happens at baptism, and the naming of an entire people like the Samaritans or other groups of people who are, in fact, all part of the one human race called to be one family in Christ, the God-Man. In Christ's Name an everlasting marriage covenant has been established and in this eternal covenant, all of us have become children, heirs, brothers and sisters of the same royal family.
With racial discrimination and racial tensions breaking into occasions of violence, destruction, chaos, murder, and theft, it is high time that we all get together to start acting according to our dignity as members of a royal family in Christ Jesus. And that means everybody--black, white, rich or poor, bound or free. We are all called into the freedom of life regulated by the 10 Commandments, a life that is like a wellspring of hope springing up inside each one of us who prays.
