“As I sat with Andrew this morning, watching him sleeping while recovering from his surgery, I was overcome by a wide range of emotions. He was, for a few minutes, the two-year-old I took to the hospital for stitches on Christmas Day when he cut his forehead. Then he was my high school senior who split his chin during the championship match at a wrestling tournament and I had to take to the ER for stitches. Then he was my son, now a man, who with great courage and a lot of grace, came back from the edge of death and while still working so get back to 100%, contains the strength, hope, and love that have made me a proud father for the past 24 years. I am so very grateful for him and for all my children. I am blessed with a wonderful friend and lover who has been so strong through this journey. And I have been supported by the prayers of so many of you. If I never make another penny in this world, I will die a very rich man. Thank you everyone. May you be filled with the same joy I am feeling right now.”

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
.
“Beginning with Mary’s unique cooperation with the working of the Holy Spirit, the Churches developed their prayer to the holy Mother of God, centering it on the Person of Christ manifested in His mysteries. In countless hymns and antiphons expressing this prayer, two movements usually alternate with one another: the first "magnifies” the Lord for the “great things” He did for His lowly servant and through her for all human beings. The second entrusts the supplications and praises of the children of God to the Mother of Jesus, because she now knows the humanity which, in her, the Son of God espoused.“
—from the Catechism of the Catholic Church; 2675.

“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

“Assemble on the Lord’s day, and break bread and offer the Eucharist; but first make confession of your faults, so that your sacrifice may be a pure one. Anyone who has a difference with his fellow is not to take part with you until he has been reconciled, so as to avoid any profanation of your sacrifice [Matt. 5:23–24]. For this is the offering of which the Lord has said, ‘Everywhere and always bring me a sacrifice that is undefiled, for I am a great king, says the Lord, and my name is the wonder of nations’ [Mal. 1:11, 14]” (Didache 14 [A.D. 70]).

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.

Please join the Catholic Community in making reparations for the sins of our priests, bishops and cardinals as well as our own. Let’s unite to pray for the healing of the Body of Christ, the victims, the conversion of these wicked men and a cleansing of the church. Let us also pray for all the good priests and bishops that they may resist temptation and continue to be the spiritual fathers we need.

“The only way to win this great combat is union with God. Christians will never succeed in overcoming the challenges of the world by appealing to political tools, human rights, or respect for religious liberty. The only true rick for the baptized is prayer and the encounter with Jesus Christ.”
—Cardinal Robert Sarah
.
If Jesus prayed with Scripture, so should we. One of the best ways to cultivate a close relationship with Jesus is to listen to him as he speaks, and he speaks through the Gospels. Jesus expects us to know and observe his word:
“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock” (Matthew 7:24). Some of the strongest and most durable building blocks of our spiritual foundation are laid with time spent in prayer with Scripture.
