Many years ago, Alvin Toffler wrote a book entitled: “Future Shock”. He pointed out that, even then, technology was advancing so quickly that people were suffering from “future shock.” 30 or 40 years down the line this process is even more intense. Technology, even that small little cell phone, is taking over the world and turning it into a global village. It is overwhelming.

A wise man said that “the only thing that is permanent about life is change.” And, difficult though it may be, we have got to cope, be flexible and find meaning in all that happens. But there is one thing that is permanent about life, and that our relationship with God, the only stable focal axis of all that is, also of our lives. It is sometimes hard to believe, but our faith teaches us that “not even a sparrow falls to the ground without your Father knowing it!” We do not have all the answers, but we do have our faith. The more we immerse ourselves in our supernatural anchorage, the true roots of our being, the more inner peace and inner security we will have.

To quote an ad: “Life’s a journey, enjoy the ride! As you can read below: our Mercy work continues to be blessed and we are happy to be part of this work and journey.  God bless you for being part of it.
