In our last post, Signs from Spirit, we talked about feathers and how Spirit often uses them to send us messages. There are many ways Spirit can communicate with us. Some are obvious, others more subtle.

Our dear friend Diotima Markis sent me an email after we published that last post. Diotima is a wonderfully spiritual lady, and a spiritual teacher as well.Read more

You were not worthy to approach God directly for forgiveness — or for anything else. There was a part of the Catholic Mass service, just before the communion, where we always said “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and I shall be healed.”
