Give something, however small, to the one in need. For it is not small to one who has nothing. Neither is it small to God, if we have given what we could.
—St. Gregory Nazianzen
To believe in God — for Christians — does not mean simply to believe that God exists, nor merely to believe that He is true. It means to believe by loving, to believe by abandoning oneself to God, uniting and conforming oneself to Him.
—St. Anthony of Padua
As the Islamic State’s reign of terror and persecution of minorities continues, we ask that you keep the Christians of Syria and Iraq, as well as other minority religious communities who face potential genocide in your prayers.
Let us remember, brothers and sisters, that those who fear Pope Francis will change Church dogma and those who hope he does, suffer from the same lack of faith in Christ’s promise that the Church will be preserved from error. The only position a Catholic can…
The good news is that sedevacantism is self-refuting. The papal succession will continue. Sedevacantism cannot elect a new pope. When this generation of clergy die off, who will be the keystone of their Church? Who will validate their bishops? It will naturally break up like protestantism. There is no such thing as Catholicism without a pope. When Christ promised the gates of hell would not prevail over the Church, he implicitly promised that it would not prevail over the papacy, either. The head and the body are one.
Why are you so quick to label yourself by your desires? You have a name, a name that God has called and a name He spoke in His heart on the cross. We all are sinners and we all have our temptations. You are a child of God, called to bring Glory to Him, called to Love. Do not let the devil discourage you. Your adventure is waiting in Christ! I will pray that God’s will is done for you in your life, and will pray for you in this time of suffering. Take up your cross and follow Him.
I have included my favorite prayer for you :)
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures -
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
Charles de Foucauld
Please reblog and pray!!
Everybody has struggles. Everybody.
Let us remember, brothers and sisters, that those who fear Pope Francis will change Church dogma and those who hope he does, suffer from the same lack of faith in Christ’s promise that the Church will be preserved from error. The only position a Catholic can take is a serene assurance that truth will prove to be triumphant.
Does it count as redemptive suffering if I burned my thumb while lighting a candle for the souls in Purgatory?
If you offer it up. :D
REBLOG IF YOU LOVE POPE FRANCIS!
