In search of God's calling for him, Andrew Lam spent years to live in Japan so that he could listen to God more closely. Fountain of Grace invited him to share his journey of vocation discernment, as well as how lay Catholics can live consecrated lives through secular institutes.

Jesus and His Rock

An honest but impetuous fisherman, Peter gave up everything to follow Jesus when he was called. But he was weak and even denied Jesus three times. Yet our Lord not only forgave him, but also made Peter the head of his Church on earth. Fountain of Grace takes you to the Holy Land to relive the story of how St. Peter became the Rock on which Christ built his Church.

What our eyes cannot see, our heart perceives and understands

The Spirit in us; the same Spirit promised by Jesus and given to us through the sacrament of confirmation, sharpens all our senses, and most importantly our heart, to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, and appreciate “what love the Father has bestowed on us” (Ps 34:8, 1 Jn 3:1).

Fullness of Life in Community

I wish all of you had a group of Christian friends who could encourage, challenge and pray with you, meeting weekly online or in a park. I wish that everyone who walked up our steps would be greeted by someone who would love them, talk to them and direct them to where to go next if they had more questions.

Being Christian in Public

Our final challenge in our Lenten wilderness experience is a call to courage. Most Catholics aren’t courageous about professing their faith in Jesus. We’ve talked many times about our fear of making the sign of the Cross in public, about sharing our Christian opinion with our friends because our stance isn’t popular, about discussing anything religious. We want to fit in above all else, and so we act like we’re not Christian.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.” (Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken”)

The road less travelled for each one of us is the way of Christ. We must humbly ask God to “create a clean heart … a steadfast spirit renew within [us]” that we may know and love God “with all [our] heart, and with all [our] soul, and with all [our] might” (Ps 51: 10,12; Dt 6:5).

Renewing Our Hearts

Today, we’re talking about renewing our hearts, and two stories stand out in my mind as opposite starting points. One time, I was having a deep, late-night conversation with a friend, and I don’t remember how we got onto the topic, but he caught me off guard when he said, “I wish I weren’t having sex with my girlfriend.” Most people do want to have sex, but he was expressing a deeper desire. I never forgot his words because they came from his heart.
