Truly, this week is holy,
for the Son of God
embraced His passion.
He suffered and died that
we might die to our sins,
and receive the gift
of Eternal Life.
"The school of Christ is the school of love. In the last day, when the general examination takes place ... Love will be the whole syllabus." - St. Robert Bellarmine
"Act as if everything depended on you; trust as if everything depended on God."
— St. Ignatius of Loyola
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
"Advent’s intention is to awaken the most profound and basic emotional memory within us, namely, the memory of the God who became a child. This is a healing memory; it brings hope."
— Pope Benedict XVI
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and here is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all.
1 Timothy 2 - ESV
You are part of God's Plan. Spend time with him today. Pray, love, believe, have faith. Trust the Lord.
You must choose to live either as persons or as animals, as men or as devils. Your actions construct a moral portrait of yourself. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
"The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for what He is sending us every day in His goodness."
— St. Gianna Molla
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
When you recite the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the souls will be embraced by My mercy during their lifetime and especially at the hour of their death. ✟
