ACMI

Possible or Impossible?

Jan Recounts her Experience with Migrant Construction Workers in Singapore. After reading this part of the Pope’s message. The thought immediately came to mind. What does “logic of the world” mean?  After reading up on it, I came across an explanation: “There are things in this world which are absolute truths. And there are things in this world that are absolutely impossible. Logic only allows you to deal with true or false values. And therefore, allows you to deal with things that are absolute truths and absolute impossibilities.”  Possible of Impossible? So I asked myself: “Possible or impossible?”  Is it possible to love the migrants? …

Moved To Pray For Others

Ignatius Shares About The Power of Prayer.
