Poco a Poco Episodes

Freedom Greater Than Circumstances

What makes us most free is this submission to God and this dependence on Him. Yes, freedom is dependent on obedience rather than doing whatever I want. When we fall in love with God and experience that love, this profound interior freedom takes place, and it becomes the most important thing in our lives — even to the point that it…

Strong But Weak

How do we reconcile being strong and weak at the same time? There has to come a healthy recognition that we’re just unable to do things. And it’s in this weakness, in recognizing that we have a lack, that Christ is then able to come in and actually be the one who moves us through that weakness into a place of strength. In this episode…

Getting Virtue Right

A habitual and firm disposition to do good, not just for ourselves but for everybody — this is how virtue is defined. Virtue allows the person, not only to perform good acts but to give the best of themselves for the greatest good of everybody. But why do we do it? Who’s it truly for and how do we exactly do it right? In this episode…

Relationship, Identity, Mission

“Who Is God” and “Who am I?” This is what we’re attempting to answer when we talk about living in the proper order of relationship, identity, and mission. We are living in a time where we’re going through an identity crisis. In the very foundation, a lot of us are forgetting who we are. We forget that we are sons and daughters…

Formation First

Why do we need to go deeper into our spiritual life? What does that actually mean? Going deeper into our spiritual life means recognizing that we are not the ones in control anymore. It is accepting this place of poverty that we cannot only rely on ourselves, to fabricate everything and make it work. It is having that absolute…

I Know Him

Mary wants the Holy Spirit to come to our life, as the Holy Spirit came for her. When we’re struggling, when we don’t understand, when we’re having deep desires and longings of our hearts, the Holy Spirit will come. God is good, God will send and He will give us everything, we just need to have the openness to…

Peace Not Panic

We have this tendency that we want to fix or clean-up certain things first before we let the Lord in. We are afraid that our place, our lives are messy—that it can be too much for anyone even for God to handle. But God is NOT panicking, he’s completely in control. He’s not afraid or scandalized of how messy our lives are…

Don’t Fumble The Bag

The gift of Advent is God proposing himself to us. He comes not just to command us to do something and watch from a far. He comes to sing with us, dance with us, BE with us. With that said, it would be tragic if the Lord comes knocking in our door and we don’t open it — that we miss Emmanuel, God with us. Let us…

Gentle But Uncompromising

Sometimes we lose hope, wondering, does He really want to come and be with us in our sickness, addiction, our family brokenness, our difficulty, our struggles, or anxieties? Advent is a time that God speaks a definitive word into our exiles, “Yes, I do” — He comes and desires to be with us. This episode is the first part…

Step One

Jesus not only loves us — He thirsts for us. Why does He say “I thirst”? What does it mean? It’s something so hard to explain in words. I thirst is something much deeper than Jesus just saying, “I love you”. Mother Teresa tells us how much love Jesus has for each of us — beyond all that we can imagine. In her words…
