Why are the Essentials of Via de Cristo

At some point, most of us who are active in Via de Cristo have been exposed to the “Essentials,” usually as a list of things that we must do as a part of this movement. And many of us are examining ways to adapt our current practices due to health issues or other societal changes over the years.

Going Forward with Confidence

Obviously all our Secretariats are tracking the latest health information and trying to make plans while adapting to changing conditions. But as we move forward into 2022, I encourage us all to remember that we serve a mighty God. He parted the Red Sea. He sustained His people for 40 years in the Wilderness. He walked on water, raised the dead, healed the lame and the blind. He conquered Death itself!

What ever happened to waiting?

A critic observed: Once a man would spend a week patiently waiting if he missed a stagecoach, but now he rages if he misses the first section of a revolving door.

Are You Still Praying?

Are you still praying?  Has our Lord spoken to you about the four open positions on the NLS Executive Committee?
