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

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

Remembered by some as harsh, some as kind, some as compassionate, and some as staunch, Padre Pio was a strong-minded priest who didn’t tolerate sin at all, be it even in thoughts, words, or one’s attire. He took confessions day and night, and immediately caught hold of those that didn’t confess all their sins. Even if it was something as small as going to a disco, or gossiping, or wearing short-length clothes!
Among the many other divinely gifts, Padre Pio also had the gift of mysticism. In 1947, he took the confession of a young Polish priest named Karol Józef Wojtyła and told him that one day he would ascend to “the highest post in the Church though further confirmation is needed.” That priest later became known to the world as Pope John Paul II.

From @fathercapo:
A week ago, I was presiding at the funeral of my father. But there’s a story behind this picture I took with @br.anthonyfreeman funeral card above my dad’s coffin last week. – Some of you you might know that the day my father died I was attending my friend seminarian’s @br.anthonyfreeman funeral services. While we were at Mass, during the moment of communion, as us priests were processing toward the altar to receive the most blessed Body and Blood of Christ, I passed by Anthony’s casket and experienced an overwhelming spiritual feeling that my dad was dying at that moment. I spontaneously prayed to Bro. Anthony, asking him to help my dad enter into Heaven and open for him the gates of Paradise. After we finished Mass, I discovered the missed call from my mom on my cell phone and got the news my dad had died. – Before we closed my dad’s coffin a week later, I prayed again to @br.anthonyfreeman and put his card on my dad’s pocket. I know Anthony accompanied my dad to Heaven!

“Nowhere other than looking at himself in the mirror of the Cross can man better understand how much he is worth…Christians must lean on the Cross of Christ just as travelers lean on a staff when they begin a long journey. They must have the Passion of Christ deeply embedded in their minds and hearts, because only from it can they derive peace, grace, and truth.”
–St. Anthony of Padua

Usain Bolt and his Gold Miraculous Medal “I want to thank GOD for everything he has done for me cause without him none of this would be possible” – Usain Bolt @usainbolt

According to ‘The fastest man in the world’ his deep Catholic Faith has been the foundational to his success. Many of the outward signs he makes, most notably making the Sign of the Cross before and after each race and wearing the Miraculous Medal, and giving thanks to God (in dramatic fashion) as he crosses the finish line reflect an inner faith that drives him.
