The Apple in God’s Eye

Even in times of discouragement and despair, we must trust and follow God and His unfolding plan. This week, Ptr. Michael Cariño reminds us what it means to be the apple in God’s eye: God loves us, has chosen us, and places great value us. We can count on his protection and guidance.
