The closer you get to God, the more you become ALIVE.🔥
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16:24-25‬

“Go to your confessor; open your heart to him; display to him all the recesses of your soul; take the advice that he will give you with the utmost humility and simplicity. For God, Who has an infinite love for obedience, frequently renders profitable the counsels we take from others, but especially from those who are the guides of our souls.” -St. Francis de Sales

“And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”

“Just wanted to share with you the brotherhood we have in @cfcyusa! This ministry really introduced me to the meaning of brotherhood and the beauty of our sisters in Christ, but most importantly these people really helped teach me about my Roman Catholic faith!”

“Love is the most necessary of all virtues. Love in the person who preaches the word of God is like fire in a musket. If a person were to throw a bullet with his hands, he would hardly make a dent in anything; but if the person takes the same bullet and ignites some gunpowder behind it, it can kill. It is much the same with the word of God. If it is spoken by someone who is filled with the fire of charity- the fire of love of God and neighbor- it will work wonders.” -St. Anthony Mary Claret

Facts about @kofc_official ⚔️🇻🇦
1) It all started when a parish priest wanted to help Catholic families.
The year was 1882 and anti-Catholic sentiment was running high. Catholic immigrants faced hostility and were thrown into dangerous work conditions which could cause early deaths. So 29-year-old Father Michael McGivney gathered the men of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., to establish a lay organization. The goal? To unite men of Catholic faith and provide for the families of deceased members.
2) The Knights stood up to ISIS. The Order produced a 280-page report detailing the genocide against Christians by ISIS, which was decisive in getting the genocide recognized by the U.S. State Department.
3) The Knights are saving a Christian town in Iraq that was desecrated by ISIS. They are raising $2 million to save Karamles, a town recently liberated from ISIS.
4) K of C has donated $1.62 billion (yes, billion!) to charitable causes over the past decade.
As of December 2017!
5) At the peak of the Ku Klux Klan’s power, the K of C stood as its most vigorous opponent. In one incident in 1924, hooded Klansmen abducted, severely beat and mutilated Father John Conoley in Gainesville, Fla. Knights armed with shotguns stood in the windows of the rectory, protecting another priest and the church itself from the Klan’s threats to burn it.
6) The Knights are on a mission to save 1 million lives. Little is more moving than seeing an image of a baby growing in the womb. Since 2009, the Knights have funded 900+ ultrasound machines at pregnancy care centers in all 50 states.

THE LAY FAITHFUL
“The term ‘laity’ is here understood to mean all the faithful except those in Holy Orders and those who belong to a religious state approved by the Church. That is, the faithful, who by Baptism are incorporated into Christ and integrated into the People of God, are made sharers in their particular way in the priestly, prophetic, and kingly office of Christ, and have their own part to play in the mission of the whole Christian people in the Church and in the World.”
The vocation of lay people
“By reason of their special vocation it belongs to the laity to seek the kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and directing them according to God’s will… . It pertains to them in a special way so to illuminate and order all temporal things with which they are closely associated that these may always be effected and grow according to Christ and maybe to the glory of the Creator and Redeemer.”
The initiative of lay Christians is necessary especially when the matter involves discovering or inventing the means for permeating social, political, and economic realities with the demands of Christian doctrine and life. This initiative is a normal element of the life of the Church:
Lay believers are in the front line of Church life; for them the Church is the animating principle of human society. Therefore, they in particular ought to have an ever-clearer consciousness not only of belonging to the Church, but of being the Church, that is to say, the community of the faithful on earth under the leadership of the Pope, the common Head, and of the bishops in communion with him. They are the Church.
