“Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.”

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the body of a missing dancer with the St. Louis Ballet Company was discovered Wednesday morning. She was also a member of the community of St. Louis Young Adults which belongs to the Archdiocese of @catholicstl.
Investigators say a private plane pilot located what he believed to be a person in the water and notified the Patrol. Members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol Division responded and recovered Stroik’s body.
In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love; deliver them now from every evil and bid them eternal rest.
The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers.. 😔🙏❤️

Mother Angelica, pray and intercede for our Catholic church. Give our people the courage you had… Complete trust in God and in the journey He took you through and complete determination in following that journey. We don’t need more wimps and we can’t wait for more leaders. We need to become leaders ourselves, we need people willing to speak the truth and unafraid of calling out higher ranks within the church, drive error away and respect church tradition.
“A time is coming when people will go mad and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad because you are not like us!’.” -St. Anthony
“Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament.” -St. Padre Pio

Nuns in Poland 😊❤️🇵🇱
Celebrating their Independence Day.
Grant, O Lord, that I may face all that this new day is to bring with peace of mind. Grant that I may dedicate myself completely to Your holy will.
For every hour of this day, instruct and support me in all things. Whatsoever I may receive during the day, teach me to accept them tranquilly, with the firm conviction that everything comes by Your holy will.
Govern my thoughts and feelings in all I do and say. When unforeseen things occur, do not let me forget that everything comes from You.
Teach me to behave sincerely and wisely toward every member of my family, not embittering or embarrassing others.
Grant me strength, my Lord, to bear the fatigue of the coming day and all that it shall bring. Guide my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to suffer, to forgive, and to love, and pray Yourself in me. Amen.

Thanks be to God! His mercy is so much greater than our sins! We do not need to be afraid at all, for as He said to St. Faustina (entry 1485): “Do not be afraid of your Savior, O sinful soul. I make the first move to come to you, for I know that by yourself you are unable to come to Me. Child, do not run away from your Father; be willing to talk openly with your God of mercy who wants to speak words of pardon and lavish His graces on you. …My Mercy is greater than your sins, and those of the entire world.”
“He who speaks rightly should recognize that he receives the words from God. For the truth belongs not to him who speaks, but to God who is energizing him.” -St. Mark the Ascetic

The president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops was speaking at the first press conference held at the bishops’ autumn General Assembly in Baltimore Nov. 12.
He indicated that the directive came not from Pope Francis, but directly from the Congregation for Bishops.
Bishop Christopher Coyne of Burlington, who spoke at the press conference, told CNA that he did not know whether the American members of the congregation played a role in the decision.
The American members of the Congregation for Bishops are Cardinals Blase Cupich of Chicago, and Donald Wuerl, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington.
DiNardo said the bishops have not lessened their resolve for action, and that they are not pleased by the Holy See’s decision. He indicated that they will continue to push for action on the sex abuse crisis: “we’re disappointed, because we’re moving along on this.”
Speaking to how Catholics can trust their leaders, he asked that they retain faith in the bishops’ commitment to reform, watching their efforts. He acknowledged that people have a right to scepticism, but also to hope.
The cardinal said he had proposed an apostolic visitation to deal with the problem, but that Rome had disagreed with that approach.
While acknowledging their disappointment in the decision from Rome, the bishops also spoke of the importance of their own obedience.
“The failure of the Vatican to act swiftly on scandals + locking the hands of the #USCCB – shows (once again) that true renewal rarely happens top-down, but rather bottom-up.
You & I (Catholics without titles) have to be saints on mission to really change things.
Who is with me?”
—Marcel LeJeune, Founder of Catholic Missionary Disciples

“What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.” -St. John Paul II
