“It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.”
Today has been such a challenging freaking day, my brain hurts and I am working my last energy to hold back tears. So I decided to take just a split second for myself (before bible study starts) and do something I never have time for. DRAWING!!! 😅 Plus @taylor_tripodi relaxes me and this particular part of the song just speaks to me.
How is your day going?! I hope it is going well!
I know I have to be thankful to god for the good and the bad. ✝️🙏🏻🎀💐

Benedicto XIV estableció, en 1742, que durante el tiempo Pascual (desde la Resurrección del Señor hasta el día de Pentecostés) se sustituyera el rezo del Ángelus por la antífona "Regina Coeli".
Oremos por el fin del aborto y por los niños no nacidos.
G: Alégrate, Reina del cielo; Aleluya
T: Porque el que mereciste llevar en tu seno; Aleluya.
G: Ha resucitado según predijo; Aleluya.
T: Ruega por nosotros a Dios; Aleluya.
G: Gózate y alégrate, Virgen María; Aleluya.
T: Porque ha resucitado verdaderamente el Señor; Aleluya.
Oh Dios, que por la resurrección de Tu Hijo, Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, te has dignado dar la alegría al mundo, concédenos que por su Madre, la Virgen María, alcancemos el gozo de la vida eterna. Por el mismo Cristo Nuestro Señor. Amen.
Benedict XIV established in 1742 that during Paschal time (from the Lord's Resurrection until the day of Pentecost) the Angelus prayer was replaced by the antiphon "Regina Coeli".
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.
Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.
Let us pray. O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Let us pray for the end of the abortion, the unborn children and for Pope Francis and for his intentions.
Popatrz na swoje życie!
Jest nijakie ? Zacznij od nowa a!
Jezus jest naszym Zbawieniem!
To. Z nim mamy siłę by iść dalej!

Pan jest miłosierny, kocha i będzie kochać!
Czeka na ten monet kiedy powiesz ;
Tak ,całkowicie oddaje ci się w Twoje ręce Panie ,zmień mnie ,chce być taka jak chcesz bym była
Bądźcie szczęśliwi i głoscie jego piękne słowa w świat, w swoje otoczenie!
Z Bogiem! +
Today and yesterday was the last day of CCD classes for the year. I finished with the ninth graders last month, so I've just been working with the first graders. I got some of the nicest thank you cards from my kids. It reminded me how worth it it is giving up my time for these kids. It reminded me that every frustrating, hair pulling, sit down, stop talking, hands to yourself moment throughout the year is worth it to help bring these children closer to God. #Catholic#oneholyandapostolicchurch#CCD#catechist#teaching#worthit#Godisgood#Jesusismyeverything
The always happy Darrel. Darrel passed last November. I've never met a happier more loving person. Such a joy to have met him. I took this last June in Medjugorje. I MISS this place and the peace and the poeple striving to know god so dearly. I hope I can return again soon. I feel like I have so much more to do. Even when life distracts you you can hold on to the love that is in everything if you only stop to truly see God is with you. #onlygodcanhealyourheart#catholic#heaven#Jesus#mary#divinemercy#apparitionhill#333#medjugorje
Today's #Medugorje message 🌻
Our Lady, please help us! We are so weak and need Your help. May our hearts open and be able to host You and Your Son. We are weak but willing. And even if we are not willing to change, we want to change. 🌻
I couldn't even count how many sins I've fallen into these days (not responding to people quickly enough, not being orderly, not even going to Divine Mercy Sunday Mass because of late sleep and complying with scheduling- yes it's embarrassing and I'm upset with how weak I am...etc - please pray for your fellow sick soul?) It's tough to be a witness when we ourselves are weak. ...
Hopefully, I'll be able to change this year. Our Lady has said that if we want to see a change in someone or something, we must first change ourselves. She even gave practical advice saying that if, for example, we couldn't stand a certain person's arrogance, we should humble ourselves with them. If we don't like to study, we should make more of an effort to study a little more...and so on... So let's pray for each other and for the world. Sometimes, God chooses the weakest of people to be His witnesses ( Peter? Saul/Paul St.Therese anyone?)
God bless ❤
Image: a statue I used to pray under daily during a dark time in my life. Fortunately, so many blessings came a year later as a result of those prayers. I went back to the church in #Badaro#Lebanon to give my thanks.
I've spent the past month, the happiest I've ever been, snuggled up with my sweet little angel. But its time for me to realize that with this star from heaven entrusted to me, comes an enormous measure of responsibility. I, an imperfect human being have been chosen to nourish and protect the body and soul of such innocence and goodness. There are three things I am that I see as most important- a Catholic, a mother and a survivalist. As a mother I intend to raise her with the values and ideals of a Catholic and a virtuous, loving person. Ideals and values much of the world has abandoned. Honor. Purity. Selflessness. Sacrifice. Courage. Discipline. Humility. Charity. Love. Kindness. Family. Loyalty. Friendship.
I also intend to teach her how to be a survivalist- independence and freedom- self reliance- living off of and with nature-obtaining a skill set that makes her unbreakable and free.
I am an imperfect person, determined to become the best i can be to show this new human how to be the best she can be.
Quando São Domingos estava pregando o Rosário perto de Carcassona, trouxeram à sua presença um albigense que estava posseso pelo demônio, parece que mais de doze mil pessoas tinham vindo ouvi-lo pregar.Os demônios que possuíam esse infeliz foram obrigados a responder às perguntas de São Domingos, com muito constrangimento. Eles disseram que:
1 – Havia quinze mil deles no corpo desse pobre homem, porque ele atacou os quinze mistérios do Rosário;
2 – Eles continuaram a testemunhar que, quando São Domingos pregava o Rosário ele impunha medo e horror nas profundezas do inferno e que ele era o homem que eles mais odiavam em todo o Mundo, isto por causa das almas que ele arrancou dos demônios através da devoção do Santo Rosário;
Eles então revelaram várias outras coisas. * * *
São Domingos colocou o seu Rosário em volta do pescoço do albigense e pediu que os demônios lhe dissessem quem de todos os santos nos Céus eles mais temiam, e quem deveria ser, portanto mais amado e reverenciado pelos homens.
Nesse momento eles soltaram um gemido inexprimível no qual a maioria das pessoas caiu por terra desmaiando de medo…e eles disseram: ” Domingos, nós te imploramos, pela paixão de Jesus Cristo e pelos méritos de sua Mãe e de todos os santos, deixe-nos sair desse corpo sem que falemos mais, pois os anjos responderão sua pergunta a qualquer momento…
São Domingos ajoelhou-se e rezou à Nossa Senhora para que ela forçasse os inimigos a proclamarem a verdade completa e nada mais que a verdade.
Mal tinha terminado de rezar viu a Santíssima Virgem perto de si, rodeada por uma multidão de anjos.Ela bateu no homem posseso com um cajado de ouro que segurava e disse: “Responda ao meu servo Domingos imediatamente” .
Então os demônios começaram a gritar: “Oh, vós, que sois nossa inimiga, nossa ruina e nossa destruição, porque desceste do Céus só para nos torturar tão cruelmente? Oh, Advogada dos pecadores, vós que os tirais das presas do inferno, vós que sois o caminho certeiro para o Céus, devemos nós, para o nosso próprio pesar, dizer toda a verdade e confessar diante de todos quem é que é a causa de nossa vergonha e nossa ruina? ➖🔗Continua nos comentários🔒➖
Anthony started putting his hands together for prayer! He watches everything that David and I do, and I am so proud that we are raising our son to know the Lord. Our gestures in the home will only help to solidify his faith. We are teaching Anthony to be grateful for his many blessings and to pray for those around him. This gorgeous print from Erica, of @beaheartdesign, hangs in our kitchen above Anthony's high chair. I love this beautifully simple reminder of the importance of prayer and being around the family table together!
On May 13th, we honor the 100th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. We have books, medals, prayer cards and more at Heavenly Blessings and Gifts celebrating 100 years of Fatima. Stop by and see us!
Shalum. This bible software app for PC is completely free to download. In my opinion it is the most powerful app to study the bible. You can find several videos on youtube on how to use the program. I have seen how extensive this program is and not everyone is computer savvy and probably wont be able to fully take advantage of the programs features. If enough people are interested, i will offer Skype tutorials on how to use this program. Skype allows you to share screens with one another. I will be accepting donations. Leave a comment or DM me if interested.
