‼️Must Read‼️ I was speechless while reading this.
– “I have to admit, I always wondered what this part of Psalm 23 meant. I thought “He anoints my head with oil” was figurative language for God keeping the Psalmist healthy. I never knew this parallel.
Anoint my head with oil “Sheep can get their head caught in briers and die trying to get untangled. There are horrid little flies that like to torment sheep by laying eggs in their nostrils which turn into worms and drive the sheep to beat their head against a rock, sometimes to death. Their ears and eyes are also susceptible to tormenting insects. So the shepherd anoints their whole head with oil. Then there is peace. That oil forms a barrier of protection against the evil that tries to destroy the sheep. Do you have times of mental torment? Do the worrisome thoughts invade your mind over and over? Do you beat your head against a wall trying to stop them? Have you ever asked God to anoint your head with oil? He has an endless supply! His oil protects and makes it possible for you to fix your heart, mind, and eyes on Him today and always! There is peace in the valley! May our good good Father anoint your head with oil today so that your cup overflows with blessings! God is good and He is faithful!!”’

“The reason for our existence is to quench the thirst of Jesus. When He asked for water, the soldier gave Him vinegar to drink—but His thirst was for love, for souls, for you and me.” -St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“One of the most fundamental problems in the spiritual order is that we sense within ourselves the hunger for God, but we attempt to satisfy it with some created good that is less than God. Thomas Aquinas said that the four typical substitutes for God are wealth, pleasure, power, and honor. Sensing the void within, we attempt to fill it up with some combination of these four things, but only by emptying out the self in love can we make the space for God to fill us. The classical tradition referred to this errant desire as “concupiscence,” but I believe that we could neatly express the same idea with the more contemporary term “addiction.” When we try to satisfy the hunger for God with something less than God, we will naturally be frustrated, and then in our frustration, we will convince ourselves that we need more of that finite good, so we will struggle to achieve it, only to find ourselves again, necessarily, dissatisfied. At this point, a sort of spiritual panic sets in, and we can find ourselves turning obsessively around this creaturely good that can never in principle make us happy.” -Bishop Robert Barron

“If God called you to religious life, what religious order would you love to be a part of?
I love and admire all religious orders but I can see myself more like a Franciscan. I feel that’s where I should be and would belong if God ever called me to serve Him.
I so admire St. Francis of Assisi & I would love to live a humble life like he did. Humbleness is the shortest way to Heaven & I see that in the Franciscans a lot which is why I just fell in love with them. Praying & hoping I will visit their monastery in Chicago one day.
What about you guys?
Tell me which one? And why?”

The Spiritual Care Unit 🚑✝️
These priests go around and do confessions for people. It’s truly beautiful. We can do the same thing. If people are struggling. Give them a comforting hand. Little things can completely change ones life.

🌹”Prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trail as well as joy; finally, it is something great, supernatural, which expands my soul and unites me to Jesus.”🌹
-St.Therese of Lisieux

With a seatbelt you can prevent yourself from getting injuries.
Just like our prayer lives. How do you expect your life to go easy when you don’t shield yourself with prayer.
When waking up each morning it should ring a bell that God is giving you another day for a reason. Don’t waste it for His sake because it’s not worth it to gain the world and lose your soul.
You’ve heard of people sleeping and dying in their sleep. No sound, no pain, just simple heart problems and just at a blink of an eye they died with no warning or maybe you felt it as if you are blessed to have another day.
God’s mercy is endless, but taking advantage of that mercy can cost you a lot.
The first thing you do when you get to the car is put on your seatbelt since you know it’s for your own protection.
When actually the first thing you should do before you even turn the car on is to pray and offer your day to God’s will and to be under God’s hands.
Most of us barely remember praying in the car on our daily commute and when something bad happens, we blame Him and dare to ask Him why He let this happen.
Those who are consistent in their prayer life and know what prayer is. Those are the happiest and will always find happiness after suffering.
So how about you enjoy life, be a happy Christian, & pray more often, will you?
At the end, it is your life and each one of us will handle the consequences of our actions.

This is a question I get asked a lot! Why do you Catholic Church has saints? Here is the answer!

“My little children, your hearts, are small, but prayer stretches them and makes them capable of loving God. Through prayer we receive a foretaste of heaven and something of paradise comes down upon us. Prayer never leaves us without sweetness. It is honey that flows into the souls and makes all things sweet. When we pray properly, sorrows disappear like snow before the sun.” -Saint John Vianney

Mega churches don’t know what they’re missing out on! Get to know these beautiful items that are used during the Holy Mass and remember that Mass is not supposed to be a concert, we are there to worship our God. It is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, who is on the altar in the hands of the Priest! Where the sinner is reconciled with God who is PRESENT and ready to wipe away all our sins. His Mercy is endless and His love is everlasting for all those who receive Him with faith and reverence.
.
.
“Let the entire man be seized with fear; let the whole world tremble; let Heaven exult when Christ, the Son of the Living God, is on the altar in the hands of the priest. I admirable height and stupendous condescension! O humble sublimity! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the universe, God and the Son of God, so humbled Himself that our salvation He hides Himself under a morsel of bread.” -St. Francis of Assisi
.
.
“At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of his Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the centuries until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us” (Sacrosanctum Concilium 47).
Even a modestly informed Catholic can set an inquirer right and direct him to biblical accounts of Jesus’ final night with his disciples. Turning to the text, we read, “And he took bread, and when he had given thanks he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me’” (Luke 22:19).

We become like that which we love. If we love what is base, we become base; but if we love what is noble, we become noble. // Blessed Fulton J. Sheen // there is something truly heroic to living an authentic life and vocation that does not conform to society, but instead conforms society to God // heroism can be found in the most simple places – we just have to be willing to be find little comfort in this life
