We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee. Because by Thy Holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world. - the opening lines of each of The Stations of The Cross.
This makes for great mental prayer during Lent. This can be prayed anywhere at any time: standing in line in a noisy place or alone with Our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration.
You bet you are, sweetie!!! :)
Tax Dollars are used to rid society of these beautiful, loving children. Rid means kill. Murder. How can we do this? How can we? How can we murder, how can we murder babies? What has happened to this world?
It comes down to selfishness. People want what they want, not what God wants. He demands not sacrifice, but mercy.
Even now as we pray for an election that turns this country around, let also pray and discern what we shall do for ourselves and others with The Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict. Many are returning with determination to spend more time learning and understanding The Catechism of The Catholic Church. More to come on this…
Wow, all these great opportunities for learning, sharing, and growing in The Faith that are available today!
Thank and Praise God every day, unceasingly, for all this and every thing around us.
We had confusion, errancy, and Tradition considered “old, stuffy, and irrelevant for our time”.
I pray that some who were lost or left will return to find The Church more alive and relevant than we have seen in our teenage thru adult lifetime.
I am comforted to see the younger generation of the faithful discovering The Truth and beautiful history of Tradition. How joyful the Saints in Heaven must be to be invoked and known by the way their lives pointed to Christ as The Way, The Truth, and The Life.
Onward, Church Militant!!
Humility is ‘thy will be done.’ Humility is focused on God, not self. Humility is not an exaggeratedly low opinion of yourself. Humility is self-forgetfulness. A humble man never tells you how bad he is. He’s too busy thinking about you to talk about himself. That’s why humility is such a joy and so close to the beatific vision, where we will be so fascinated with God that we forget ourselves completely. — Peter Kreeft

Real Heroes, both of them. Thank God for sending us heroes.
Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence. — Blessed John Paul II (via firerainingdown)
