Following Jesus Christ: Seeking the Summit of the Spiritual Life

TAU Ministries is a 501(c)3 non profit organization.  Our mission is to help draw souls into a deeper relationship with God.

TAU.  Teach And Understand

God created us in his image.  God, as Trinity, is a community of love.  Seeking a relationship with God is a part of who we are.  Tau Ministries' mission is to help those seeking, encountering and entering into the love of the Trinity.  

"Oh God, you are my God, for You I long, for You my soul is thirsting."

 Ps 63 Grail translation

 “ When I pray, when I breathe with God, I become part of the intimacy of God’s life. The Spirit of God who breathes within me draws me into the circle of love between the Father and Son. Through prayer I am drawn into the dance of the Trinity.”

Ilia Delio, OSF.  Franciscan Prayer, pg 19

A little known Saint, Expeditus, was a Martyr around 303 A.D.  He was a Roman Soldier who converted to Christianity.  He has been a great intercessor for me and I am asking his intercession for the success of Tau Ministries.

There are many legends surrounding Expeditus, some doubt that he ever existed.  There are images and devotions going back several centuries.  The way I see it, even if he did not exist, our prayers are always brought to our heavenly Father when we pray in faith and sincerity.

"Each of the elders held a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones." (Rev 5:8)  Don't you just love the image of the saints in heaven offering our prayers before the throne of God?  It's why we have incense at times in our worship, to remind us that our prayers rise before the throne of God.
