My dude Chris Pratt @prattprattpratt! Thank you for using your platform to remind everyone watching to pray and do good, remember that they have a soul + a God who loves them, and to courtesy flush 😂. This is the most refreshing thing I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. I’ve been praying for the conversion of hearts in Hollywood and I’m grateful to see how Jesus is Lord in Starlord’s heart. #witness #faith #hope #love #Jesus #hollywood #mtv

The proud person, by very definition, does not realize he is proud. If he realized he was proud he would repent, but it is pride which keeps him from seeing that he is wrong or sinful in any way. Pride is a very difficult sin to do anything about because the proud person will even go so far as to admit that he is proud, and that makes him even more “right” than he was before!
What a subtle, lying, deceitful and insidious sin pride is! No wonder it is called “the first sin”. No wonder it is the first and most terrible sin of Satan who is the Father of Lies. Is pride deadly? Yes. It is deadly like a poisoned apple. It is deadly like a smiling murderer. Pride kills because the proud person cannot stand others who disagree. Not only does the proud person have to be right, but as their pride grows they must also destroy everyone else who is wrong. They cannot allow an enemy to remain. The proud person may not kill literally, but they kill reputations through gossip and detraction. They kill good will through hatred and recrimination. They kill charity through revenge and nursing a grudge. They kill friendship through arrogance, indifference to others and lack of compassion.
Humility counters pride. The word “humility” is derived from the same root as humor and “humus” which means “earth.” A humble person is down to earth. A humble person has a good sense of humor. Most of all, the humble person knows his failures, faults and foibles. He knows himself and can laugh at himself.

Let’s pray for all those people who are without true joy especially those within our church. May God change their hearts and fill them with joy! May all Catholics be known as the joyful people who bring the gospel to all!
“Act in a way that all those who come in contact with you will go away joyful. Sow happiness about you because you have received much from God.” -St. Faustina

“New Evangelization is the work of the whole Church — lay, ordained, and consecrated. It’s about friends, family, and co-workers reaching out to one another and proclaiming the truth of Christ using all available means — conversation, personal witness, media, and the vast array of intellectual and spiritual riches the Church has built up in her two-thousand-year history. It’s about simple acts of kindness, simple challenges issued in love, and simple questions asked with sincerity. More fundamentally, the New Evangelization is more for the baptized than the unbaptized. It’s for those who’ve been inadequately catechized but all too adequately secularized, and it’s for those who’ve been de-Christianized in the very process of being sacramentalized.” -Dr. Scott Hahn, Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization

Another person once remarked : “Some years ago, I had a heart attack. The doctors recommended I undergo surgery to improve my condition. I entered the hospital at once. It was in June 1991. During the surgery, the doctors did a quadruple bypass. When I awoke from the anesthesia, my leg and right arm were paralyzed. I was really discouraged. After awhile, my faith returned and I began to pray to Padre Pio for help. I pleaded with him for three days. On the third day, as I was finishing my prayer, despite being surrounded by other patients, I noticed something significant. I caught a whiff of an overwhelming aroma of flowers. When the perfumed aroma faded, I felt a sensation in my right leg. I knew at once my prayers had been answered.”

Never forget that there are only two philosophies to rule your life: the one of the cross, which starts with the fast and ends with the feast. The other of Satan, which starts with the feast and ends with the headache.” -Ven. Fulton J. Sheen

Father Amatulli, has passed away. He was a priest very much loved in Mexico for his tireless apologetic work.
“We feel and regret his departure to the House of the Father, but as men and women of faith, we wait and ask trusting that the Lord will grant him the prize of the Righteous,” his Diocese said in a statement.
Father Amatulli was considered one of the main Catholic apologists in Mexico and throughout Latin America. He wrote about ninety publications, including books and pamphlets, and devoted to warn about different denominations and Protestant sects and refute their mistakes. At present, he promoted the action of the Catholic Church on an international level to solve the problem of the new religious proselytizing and to promote the biblical pastoral. Father Amatulli favored the apostolic and apologetic formation of the laity to counteract with the Bible the Protestant expansion in Mexico and other countries of America. They are present in Mexico, Latin America and some countries in Europe and Africa. His apostolate is developed in three aspects: biblical pastoral, promotion and defense of the faith and permanent parish missions.
Grant them, O Lord, eternal rest and that Your perpetual light illuminates them. May the souls of the faithful departed by the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
