How do we make society Christ-centered?
Joshua 24:15 “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua made a statement to Israel after Moses was gone. He also made a statement about his family that for his household they “will serve the LORD.” When a family determines to serve the Lord, the Lord is determined to be a part of that family. Families are stronger when the Lord is being considered before making decisions. This includes what movies to watch, what’s on TV, the Internet, in magazines, and whatever other media infiltrates the home. When the Lord is honored things will go well with that family. Like Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, “And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” When that third cord is God, then families are stronger and can withstand many of the storms of life.

“Whoever does not embrace the Catholic Christian faith is lost, like your false prophet Muhammad.”
—St. Peter Mavimenus (d. 8th century), martyr from Gaza. Response reported in the Martyriologum Romanum when he was asked to convert to Islam by a group of Muslims.

“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.”

ATTENTION!! Your Help is Needed!! The Sisters of the Resurrection have a rich history of serving the Church all over the world. Here in the United States, Youth Ministry is a vital part of their work and these three Sisters need our help, so they can bring a group of young adults from the Albany Diocese to Washington D.C. for the March for Life on January 19th. Can you help make this trip possible for the Sisters and these kids? All money raised goes towards their transportation costs. They will be up early on the 19th leaving by 5:00 am to return very late that same day. They are excited about going and be assured of their prayers on this long train trip to and from our nation’s capital and this important event for the Pro-Life movement.

The Pope had some strong words this week for priests who lead double lives. He said such priests are “sick pastors” and “a wound on the Church.” This is a good reminder for laity to pray for priests and seminarians!! 🙏🏻😇

’… let us bear in mind that unless we are humble we shall not only do no good, but we shall not be saved. “Unless you … become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” In order, then, to enter into the kingdom of heaven, we must become children, not in age, but in humility. St. Gregory says that as pride is a sign of reprobation, so humility is a mark of predestination.’
–St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, Doctor of the Church

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.” –St. Joan of Arc
