Seeking and Following Peace in Discernment

What is the role that our emotions have in discernment? How should that “sense of peace” direct our decisions as we approach God’s will?

Today Fr. Mark-Mary explores the role of peace and how our emotions can often trick us into making decisions in our discernment that may not be exactly what God has in mind for us.


Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
