But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth. And when he had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.

Talking to God

God Loves Us

The God of our faith is not a distant being, who contemplates our fate indifferently. He is a Father who loves his children ardently – a Creator God who overflows with love for those whom he creates. And he grants us the great privilege of being able to love, and so transcend the limits of what is temporary and passing.

Work

I spent about three years looking for work, but unsuccessfully. On the internet I found the novena to St. Joseph and one to St. Josemaria. After less than a month of praying, I obtained the job I wanted.
