Go to Mass EVERY SUNDAY. Strive to meet more than the minimum requirements.
If a man loves his wife he would try and be with her as often as possible and vice versa, not just twice a month. If we say we love God but don’t try to be with Him at least 2 hours out of 168 a week is that really love?
Out of 720 hours a month let’s try and be with God at least 8 hours a month and start getting involved in your local parish activities. The catholic church needs you! Wishing everyone a very blessed 2018!! Praying for all of you!🙏💒🕊🇻🇦
“On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are to refrain from engaging in work or activities that hinder the worship owed to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s Day, the performance of the works of mercy, and the appropriate relaxation of mind and body. Family needs or important social service can legitimately excuse from the obligation of Sunday rest. The faithful should see to it that legitimate excuses do not lead to habits prejudicial to religion, family life, and health.” —Catechism 2185

“America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance — it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.” –Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan in 1945, it brought about utter destruction, except for one home, which was within a kilometer of ground zero. The eight Jesuit priests who lived there suffered no ill effects from the radiation that killed so many, and were thus, examined and interviewed multiple times. Fr. Schiffer, a survivor, remarked over 200 times, “we believe that we survived because we were living the message of Fatima. We lived and prayed the rosary daily in that home.”

A priest brought his friend, a Jewish man named Lello Pegna, to visit Padre Pio in 1919. Pegna was completely blind in both eyes. The priest had brought him to Padre Pio in the hopes of his friend being cured. Padre Pio told Pegna, “The Lord will not grant you the grace of physical sight unless you first receive sight for your soul. After you are baptized, then the Lord will give you your sight.” A few months later Pegna returned baptized despite the protests of his family. In the following months his sight was fully restored. For the next thirty years, his sight remained perfect.

Notre Dame law professor, Amy Barrett was approved by the Senate, 55-43. Democrats object, saying she has “A long history of believing that your religious beliefs should prevail” in whatever decision we are called upon to make.

Prayer to St. Thomas More for Public Servants
O Glorious St. Thomas More, Holy Patron of Statesmen, Politicians, Judges and Lawyers, your life of prayer and penance and your zeal for justice, integrity and firm principle in public and family life led you to the path of martyrdom and sainthood. Intercede for our Statesmen, Politicians, Judges and Lawyers, that they may be courageous in their defense and promotion of the sanctity of human life, the foundation of all other rights. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Catholic Relationship Story:
“Blessed Charles of Austria is a total gem. On his deathbed, he turned to his wife and said, “I’ll love you forever.” Someone pass the tissues! Anyway, Blessed Charles was born into a royal family and raised Catholic. From the day he was born, he had a group of people specifically dedicated to praying for him. As time went on, he served his country with great love and always desired peace. He became king of Hungary in 1916, and his rule was dominated by the terrors of WWI. Despite all this, he was deeply in love with his wife and raised eight children before dying young in exile.
On the day after his marriage ceremony, when the festivities were over and his life with his new wife had officially begun, Blessed Charles turned to her and said, “Now we must help each other get to Heaven.” His love for her was so pure and so complete that all he wanted was to see her obtain the peace and joy of heaven. This is an example we can emulate in daily life, as well as in our relationships.”

This is me attempting to pray the rosary with my 6 kids with their dad on speakerphone.
Tonight was full of distractions… they attempted to go outside, to wrestle, to sweep the carpet, to pole dance, to do anything other than sit still.
In my head I contemplated why even include them… but then I remind myself kids will not remember what you say but they will remember what they see.
And even though my kids participation is not perfect, that is ok. It is more important that my participation is devoted, even while changing a 💩diaper… however that’s possible 🤢
Happy 100th anniversary of Fatima!
