❄️Christmas Project🎄
With @vivyanhamo & @the.daily.catholic
Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy🍂
If not me and you to help, then who?
We can’t always ask for miracles, we can be someone’s miracle. Since I’ve worked in a homeless shelter, I learned so much from those poor people. They’re humble, kind, have unconditional faith in God, speak the truth, and I was stunned when all of them admitted that it was their fault they ended up homeless.
Some of them just wanted someone to talk to. To tell them that they’re getting a job, an apartment, or a car.
They want someone to tell them, you did it, God is proud of you. Some of them really got a job and a place to live in.
They promised me that I’ll see them when I come back again. But this time I’ll see them as volunteers helping to motivate others to never give up and push themselves to live a better life.
@the.daily.catholic came up with this perfect project and we are both going to start to get some stuff that they need the most.
We will make sure not to just throw food and clothes in their faces as like we are doing them a favor. Absolutely not, you can’t look down at others or feel the pride of what you’re doing. Work of mercy does not work like that.
Plus we will be adding different projects too. Like visiting sick kids in hospitals, abandoned elderly, and so on.
I don’t want Jesus to tell me, you had plenty of time to do many things but you wasted it on useless stuff. Just saying that gives me chills and a broken heart. We are not trees, let’s move our feet and let God to bless our footsteps🍂
Let the work of mercy begin🍂

Today I attended for the first time an event of how to defend the faith and Jesus’ relevance in today’s world @stjosephchaldeanchurch
Father Bryan had an excellent talk about how to defend the faith and Jesus’ relevance.
I was in awe the whole entire hour father Bryan gave evidence, proves, & tiny details that even as a non believer couldn’t question them after hearing him.
He didn’t make it complicated, he broke the answer into small details that you won’t want to miss.
I thought I knew how to defend the faith and had it all in control. After today, I realize, I knew nothing about how to defend the faith. Telling people they will go to Hell and call them names won’t let them to come to faith. Yes, say the truth, but say it wisely. Trying to win a debate won’t make the non-believer or different come to Jesus. Father Bryan also asked us three questions to think about before we left. And I will ask you those 3 questions to think about…
1) How do I spend my time each week with Jesus? Do I just go to Mass and Adoration and pray before bed and call it for the day? Do I say I went to Mass and I’m good? We must put Jesus as the center of our lives and not just on Sundays.
2) How did I spend my money the last 30 days? Do I just care about the brand name and the way I look? Do I spend money on things I want mostly? Do I worship money more than Jesus?
3) Who are my friends? Do I just have friends who just call me to hang out or to drag me to church?
Do I have friends who judge me fairly and make me aware of me actions? Do I have friends who love Jesus too and love to talk about Him? I wanted to share a little bit of what I learned today @war_room_sjhm and if you live in Michigan I highly recommend that you attend. Next Thursday it will be in a different Catholic Church. It’s only one hour, but that one hour will fill your soul with God’s words. Your soul is tired and you need to feed your soul just like you need to feed your body to stay strong and to do your tasks.

“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. Bring love into your home, for this is where our love for each other must start.” -St. Mother Teresa
Most of us would somewhat sheepishly agree that our acquaintances, colleagues, and neighbors see our best self, while we let everything hang loose in our homes. Would we dare pick fights, argue, ignore, shame, or manipulate those far away? Probably not. We find it easier to love the people who don’t know us well, and vice versa, but Mother Teresa suggests that love isn’t fully realized until it involves the hard work of accepting the faults and failures of those closest to us. In order for love to truly be love, it must involve sacrifice and selflessness. We must offer the best of ourselves to our families.

‼️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.
