4. Sermon of the Week
Sermon for Sunday For all the Departed Faithful by Rev. Fr. V. V. Paulose
Death is the only reality on earth. We may be pretending that we are not

Obedience - The Path to Power in Prayer

results out of your pain. Here's how you can develop a winning marriage
by being a husband who stays in the game with God. ...
12. The Month of Love
I learned something I thought I already knew - diamonds aren't a girl's
best friend. Her husband is, if he even shows a rhinestone's-worth of
interest in her. ... what all of them really want is a husband that
makes an effort to understand them and speak their language, whatever it
is, without being told. ...
