Greetings, This is Jacqueline Loh from Grace that Reigns, welcome to our Winter Series called: Fall into the Light, From January – April, we will offer powerful and amazing testimonies of how God helps to reveal his Wonder to us and how our own sense of Wonder can be renewed.
Today I am starting with a special Guest, my father Michael Loh. Hello Michael!
My father had just retired and bought himself a Coffee and muffins franchise, and everyone who was anyone would come for his muffins/ coffee…but most of all, for his smile and for his company and humourous stories. The store had become quite a social spot for his growing gathering of family and friends.
But on one fateful day in 1998, my father took ill at the store and wound up in the emergency room, where he was in grave condition. What transpired there, was inspiring and nothing short of a miracle that changed his life until this day. This is a story that reminds me that we are all Pearls of Great Price.

In this 3rd part of Bishop Gilmore's Advent reflection, Bishop continues speaking about the topic of Hope, by using an inspiring true to life story about a man named, Peguy who suffered greatly in his life, but clung on to his " little girl Hope."
In Peguy’s poem, the Lord himself says: the dark is my favorite time; my first creation, the night. That plunged Peguy into the beginning of all mysteries, that of Creation itself. The Hebrew people believed, and the Christian people after them, that God made the world ex nihilo, out of nothing … out of no previous existing material. “In the beginning, the Book of Genesis says ‘darkness covered the abyss.”
Out of darkness, there came " Hope " for Peguy. Out of darkness, there is Hope at the end of this Advent Season.

In this 2nd mini advent reflection, Bishop Gilmore continues to reflect on the topic of Hope with the help of a certain Charles Peguy, a married man who died in 1914.
This time, he looks at Hope through the eyes of a child in Peguy's life and finds the spark through which Peguy could find consolation during this difficult life through his " little Girl Hope."
It is an unusual reflection - not the typical Christmas Story. However, it looks deeper into the Theological Virtue of Hope in a way that resonates in our lives today.

Fall into the Light #2: In this Podcast, Bishop Gilmore continues to give us a thorough understanding of what the church thinks of the topic of healing and most notably today; physical healing. This theological background comes at a time when we can never be too careful when we speak about healing, and provides a firm Catholic foundation from which this series will grow.
