The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the body of a missing dancer with the St. Louis Ballet Company was discovered Wednesday morning. She was also a member of the community of St. Louis Young Adults which belongs to the Archdiocese of @catholicstl.
Investigators say a private plane pilot located what he believed to be a person in the water and notified the Patrol. Members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol Division responded and recovered Stroik’s body.
In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love; deliver them now from every evil and bid them eternal rest.
The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers.. 😔🙏❤️

Nuns in Poland 😊❤️🇵🇱
Celebrating their Independence Day.
Grant, O Lord, that I may face all that this new day is to bring with peace of mind. Grant that I may dedicate myself completely to Your holy will.
For every hour of this day, instruct and support me in all things. Whatsoever I may receive during the day, teach me to accept them tranquilly, with the firm conviction that everything comes by Your holy will.
Govern my thoughts and feelings in all I do and say. When unforeseen things occur, do not let me forget that everything comes from You.
Teach me to behave sincerely and wisely toward every member of my family, not embittering or embarrassing others.
Grant me strength, my Lord, to bear the fatigue of the coming day and all that it shall bring. Guide my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to suffer, to forgive, and to love, and pray Yourself in me. Amen.

Thanks be to God! His mercy is so much greater than our sins! We do not need to be afraid at all, for as He said to St. Faustina (entry 1485): “Do not be afraid of your Savior, O sinful soul. I make the first move to come to you, for I know that by yourself you are unable to come to Me. Child, do not run away from your Father; be willing to talk openly with your God of mercy who wants to speak words of pardon and lavish His graces on you. …My Mercy is greater than your sins, and those of the entire world.”
“He who speaks rightly should recognize that he receives the words from God. For the truth belongs not to him who speaks, but to God who is energizing him.” -St. Mark the Ascetic

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🍂

“God of peace, we pray for those who have served our nation and have laid down their lives
to protect and defend our freedom.
We pray for those who have fought, whose spirits and bodies are scarred by war, whose nights are haunted by memories too painful for the light of day.
We pray for those who serve us now, especially for those in harm’s way.
Shield them from danger and bring them home.
Turn the hearts and minds of our leaders and our enemies to the work of justice and a harvest of peace.
Spare the poor, Lord, spare the poor!
May the peace you left us, the peace you gave us, be the peace that sustains, the peace that saves us.
Christ Jesus, hear us!
Lord Jesus, hear our prayer!

“Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet come; we must live each day as if it were our last so that when God calls us we already, and prepared, to die with a clean heart.” –St. Mother Teresa
