I was presented with a gift by a young lady I had the pleasure of meeting last week.

She gave me a little book that contains the wisdom of St. Alphonsus … Continue reading Give Him Everything
I wish more people knew their story. It's a great story of salvation. It needs to be told so that everyone can know that each one of us matters. Very much.
