This week, take the lumps with the blows. Keep yourself in check and don’t be rash. Remember, think strategically. You can make mistakes, but you must own them and accept them. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to do nothing. Don’t react. Madame G recommends you breathe deep and take care of you. Be you! Don’t...

Our Blessings in Christ

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places …” Ephesians 1:3 (ESV)

Paul begins with exuberant praise for the God who saved him from his sins, whom he serves. Reading through verses 3-14, it becomes clear this God of whom he speaks and glorifies is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus the Christ) and the Holy Spirit. He doesn’t attempt to explain the ‘Trinity’ as we have come to know it; Paul simply, extravagantly shares about the Father who initiated our salvation before creation, Jesus who executed the plan, and the Holy Spirit who continues the work of Jesus.

In the verse above...

When life gets you down, take in the benefits of nature and explore the world around you. Madame G recommends you take time to enjoy your life.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Sometimes, it feels as if life is pushing you forward and jerking you around like a washing machine. Easily, anyone can become overwhelmed and tired of this constant back-and-forth. You’re not the only one. Instead of forcing yourself away from a certain subject, take a moment to...

Says bill would victimize vulnerable population

“GALLUP (January 07, 2019) – I, the Catholic bishop of the Diocese of Gallup, voice my strong opposition to a proposed bill aimed at repealing a New Mexico state law criminalizing abortion.

While the law is currently not enforced due to federal legalization of abortion through the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe V. Wade, I nevertheless urge opposition to any bills that would loosen abortion restrictions.

The Governor has expressed concern that the current law would “punish women”, should Roe vs. Wade ever be overturned, and I am in agreement that criminalization of abortion should not target women, many of whom find themselves in...
