Why is it that most of us listen to everybody else but neglect our own inner wisdom? Why don't we trust that voice? Is the heart (as the bible claims), really "deceitful above all things?"

It also explores a mindful practice that can help you to mo…

A custom of our Christian tradition is to keep vigil with Christ at different times and in different ways during Holy Week.
