Wedding Feast of Cana

WEDDING FEAST OF CANAWedding Feast of Cana with Sue Ellen Nolan

“The First of His Signs; Believe in Him”
In this podcast we are at the Wedding of Cana. Jesus is called out into ministry, by the prompting of His mother to step into His identity as the Savior of the world and manifest His glory in order that the disciples may believe (John 2:11). Her heart will be pierced in her suffering, but the greater good intended by the greatest event in human history will come into fullness. Her fiat assured her participation the bringing of His kingdom and her willingness to suffer with humility and dignity in God’s plan of Salvation.
These witnesses are present as He reveals this abundant miracle of water into wine in at a wedding. Jesus demonstrates this Sacrament as a vessel for abundant wine overflowing with the graces that are available from it. Those who were there came to believe. What does it take for us to believe? What will it take for us to assent to “doing whatever He tells us?”

Spiritual Poverty

spiritual povertyWhat Is Spiritual Poverty? with Dr. Sue Ellen Nolan

The need for God that nothing else can answer. St Augustine says “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
This spiritual poverty was answered for me by our Lady bringing me to her Son. In Him I have all that I need. This was the beginning of Jesus revealing Himself to me as my Spouse. No matter what was happening in my life, He was there for me to share the depth of my soul. 
This came to me at a moment of surrender. The scripture became a theme for my life. 
 

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 – New International Version (NIV)

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life

Meet Dr. Sue Ellen Nolan from Authentic Faith and Life

Dr. Sue Ellen NolanIntroducing Dr. Sue Ellen Nolan and the Authentic Faith and Life Podcast!

From a small town village in northern Michigan’s Upper Peninsula into Northern Ontario and down to South Florida, God has had a plan for my life and a unique journey He meant for me.  Just as He has for you! His enduring love was the one constant thing-I felt it in the love of my wonderful mother and being in my large family; and with my first born child while he was in the womb. And came together in the basement of a church hearing the Scripture “God is Love”!

God always has a plan in mind for us and often answers our prayers even before we speak them out loud, just as He answered Adam, in his solitude, by giving him Eve! God showed up often in my life the more I opened up to Him. He began to draw me into an undeniable relationship with Him. Then He began to equip me for the mission He had in mind for me. God works like this for all of us! We just have to turn toward Him. He cannot resist us. He loves us so much and will show up in undeniable ways!
