Claire did a beautiful job highlighting the usually tensions we experience in life and showing us how they are GIFT — leading us deeper into the heart of the Father. Everyone loved the presentation, and it gave us a chance to slow down in this high-paced world.

Grace in Tension’ is a thoughtful reflection on the practical human and spiritual dimensions of faith through the lens of Martha and Mary and how their own experience of friendship with the Lord Jesus can help us find divine grace and peace in the midst of everyday tension and stress.

Rev. Msgr. Anthony R. Frontiero, S.T.D., Pastor – St. Matthew Parish, Windham, NH
