How Can It Be?


Come As You Are

The Magnificat

Mary’s time has come! She will give birth to the Blessed One.  We celebrate Him now.

Christianity is about being like “Christ”. Read more of this post

The Power of Empathy

What is empathy?  It is understanding, relating to or identifying with another person’s experiences and emotions or the ability to share someone else’ feelings.  Empathy makes a person feel you understand or relate to what they are going through.  Empathy is connection with another person.

Empathy involves: 1) Perspective-taking, 2)being non-judgmental towards the person, 3) recognize the emotion, and 4) communicating that emotion to the person.

How good are you at empathy?
