“Nick, God wants me to tell you that He loves you.”
This message came to Nick Jarvis from his friend, Bala, just minutes after he wrote a long email to God, pouring out his feelings and his pain. As the message sank in, emotions welled up in Nick knowing that just moments before he had questioned God, and yet God sent someone to physically deliver His message of love.
Then months later, a casual meet-up with a platonic friend turned into a courtship that healed him, deepened him to love and led him into the sacrament of marriage.
Today, Nick experiences living the beatitudes in his married life through practising forgiveness, mercy, patience, kindness and self-control. In the corporate executive reconciliation programmes he carries out within organisations, church groups and families, he brings people together to heal and to love.
Having encountered the healing power of God’s love, Nick believes every lay Catholic is called to be a ‘Catholyst’ to love and serve God wherever we are. Watch the video to hear Nick’s journey of love and how it shaped him into who he is today.
