“You will never be happy if your happiness depends on getting solely what you want.  Change the focus.  Get a new center.  Will what God wills, and your joy no man shall take from you.” ~ Venerable Fulton Sheen

“I went to Adoration for the first time yester…

“I went to Adoration for the first time yesterday, and it was wonderful to have that quiet time with Jesus at the church. However, something so beautiful and comforting happened to me following Adoration. I was having a pretty rough day spiritually on Friday, both feeling a bit of distance from God and struggling if knowing if converting to Catholicism is actually right and what I want to do. Truthfully, I didn’t want to go to Adoration because I just wasn’t “feeling it” that day, but some wise words from my RCIA classmate, Jimmy, popped into my head, which are “Regardless of how I feel, I’m worshipping God.”
And so I went, had some great quiet time with the Lord, prayed the rosary, and left. I was looking through my church’s free reading material shelf and picked up a pamphlet on the Passion, and right under that was the above pictured Miraculous Medal taped to a ripped piece of paper. I’ve never been more speechless in my life, and here’s why:
The first promise of the rosary is that those who recite it faithfully shall receive signal graces, which are essentially little signs that one is headed in the right direction, and I’ve noticed quite a few throughout the week, but this one stopped me right in my tracks. Not just that, but I’ve been wanting to buy a Miraculous Medal for awhile, but I wanted it to be special- I didn’t want to buy one because that’s “just what Catholics do”, so I’ve been putting it off. So, this is definitely a sign from Our Lady to trust her. And, what comforted me most was knowing that she is, in fact, watching over me and all of us, and I interpreted this blessing as a small “thank you” for faithfully praying the rosary, but most importantly, for spending time with her beloved Son despite feeling spiritually desolate that day.
What I’m taking away from this is to trust in Christ, trust in Our Lady, and to trust in the power of praying the rosary, regardless of how I happen to be feeling.
I hope you all have a blessed day- I love all of you so much! ❤️🙏”

We must reignite our faith in Christ. We must partake in the celebration of the Eucharist. We must reach out to those who have left. We are the future of the Church.

As many have seen and heard, there has been devastating #floods in #Kerala, #India (3.9 million #Catholics) that has been going on for the past few days with over 325 deaths. Many have been left #homeless, have no food, shelter or clothes and more than 100,000 displaced from their homes and families. We ask that you please add your brothers and sisters in Kerala in your nightly prayers and again at Mass this week. Also, if you are able to, our followers in India sent us this link to donate:

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,
I adore you, I love you and will a lively sorrow for my sins.
I offer you this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will.
Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.
Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions;
give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs,
your blessings on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.
Within your heart I place my every care.
In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying,
Heart of Jesus, help me.
Amen.
