These ‘signs’ in John’s Gospel are miracle stories but John prefers to use the term ‘sign’, as they point to something far more than just the miracle itself. John used these signs to encourage belief in his readers but they are also an invitation…

John must have been a very dynamic and inspiring preacher as the people speculated if he were the one they had been waiting for. He uses all of this attention for one purpose: to point…

Pope Francis on Abortion and the Right to Life “Among the vulnerable for whom the Church wishes to care with particular love and concern are unborn children, the most defenceless and innocent among us.
