‼️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!!”’

“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?”

🌹”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.

Let’s pray for a better sense of humour and for the divine gift of laughter. Teilhard de Chardin was right, God’s deepest essence is joy because it is the light of heaven. We are called to “laugh and grow strong”. The point of being Catholic is not to act like the Pharisees parading our hardships and suffering as a badge of holiness. God invites us to receive joy, and to walk clothed in dignity and strength, laughing without fear of the future (Proverbs 31:25). Then the joy of the Lord will sustain us.

“The truth is each of us must choose to live in joy, in the Spirit. As Father Henri Nouwen explained, joy does not simply happen to us, we must choose joy and keep choosing it every day. I consider myself fortunate because God has blessed me with a sense of humour which defies my circumstances.”

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
