#repost @revealing.jesus ・・・ @revealing.jesus Inspiration Below 🔽❤️🔽 . Hey Revealers! One difficulty that all Christians face is when someone they are friends with or love does not have faith in Christ. . Some will say push them away, treat them as a temptation and fear them, because "Bad company corrupts good character." 1 Cor. 15:33 . However, this is impossible if that person is a family member, so how can we as Christians deal with this situation? . The number one thing you must do is realize the potential threats when hanging out with this person. There is no excuse to sin no matter what your company is. So, know the temptations you will face when hanging out with this person. Now, this is can be advice for all people we hang out with not just non-Christians. . The second thing you must do is pray and pray often for this person. Offer them a Rosary or fast for their conversion. There are things we can offer (prayers, fasting, Mass, denying of temptations, etc.) to God so that He may bring a change of heart. . Finally, you must realize that only God's Grace can bring this change of heart, and God decides where this Grace comes from. I found that when we begin to obsess over converting this person, we begin pressuring them too much with attempts to convert and actually draw them away from the faith rather than bring them closer to the faith. . Act as a model of Christ, Christ attracted crowds of the thousands, if we do the best we can to act as Christ would, we will be exposing our friends and family to a goodness that may be difficult, but people are naturally drawn to due to God creating us for goodness. So, be the best Christian you can be without diluting His teaching in attempts to make His teaching attractive. Trust that His Way is what everyone longs for. . One must finally trust in God's timing and methods. Offer your prayer and know that God has heard it, do not become anxious, trust that the person you pray for is on a journey to Christ as well. Have hope, God is calling all people. . . . #catholicism #catholicchurch #catholic #catholicdaily #dailycatholicism #dailycatholicchurch #catholicchurchdaily #christianinspiration #catholicfaith #christian

How are YOU working to become a Saint? Lent is not the only time to make sacrifices, to fast, to abstain, or to create spiritual goals. Either is New Year. Let’s start today! We can work on perfection any day/month/time of year. One great way is to pick a virtue to work on each month! Or create a list of vices you currently have, bad habits, or weaknesses, and a list of how you can turn that into a virtue, a good habit, a strength! 😀🙏🏼 ______________________________________________________ #sainthood #godblessyou #istandcatholic #jesus #god #holyspirit #holybible #holyrosary #catholic #catholicthoughts #morningthoughts #catholicinspiration #catholicyouth #catholicgirl #catholicism #popefrancis #catholiclife #catholicfaith #christian #christianity #christiancatholic #church #holymass #mary #followchrist #followgod #godlovesyou #love #faith

I am easily distracted and incredibly forgetful, two qualities which frequently make themselves a nuisance in my spiritual life. It's hard to surrender yourself completely to God when you forget to pray or get sidetracked by something else. Every now and then I do a check in with myself and realise things have been slipping - I haven't been going to daily Mass as much, my daily Rosary got forgotten, my spiritual journal is accumulating dust, and I get to the end of the day and think, "Wait - have I even spoken to God today?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can't have a relationship with someone we forget about. The fact I forgot to pray or let myself get distracted shows that something is slipping. It shows I've been making less of an effort and therefore God became less of the person I'm devoted to and more a good friend that I've been neglecting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ Those are the times when I have to put measures in place to put God back at the centre. Spending time with him shouldn't rely on my awful memory, or my being disciplined enough to pause Netflix or put down that book. It's not enough to say I'll talk to God throughout the day, I have to have a plan in place to spend meaningful time with him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think it's important that plan involves intentionally spending time with him when I would normally want to do something else. By sacrificing my own desires and surrendering myself to him, I make a much-needed grand gesture, showing someone I neglected that I am willing to put them first. And I tell the devil who's in charge and where he can stick his distractions and abuse of my poor memory! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thelittleevangelist

Every one of us has two choices before us: we can live our lives the way we see fit, doing what brings us happiness and what we think is best. Or we can surrender our lives to God and let him be "the source and the purpose".⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today we celebrate the feast of St John Eudes, a 17th-century French priest. It's clear from the way John lived that he knew "the source and the purpose" of his life was God. He served Jesus so faithfully that when he saw a need, he didn't hesitate to fulfil it without discrimination for those in need.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether it was his parishioners, whom he served as a gifted preacher and confessor, or those struck with the plague, John didn't hesitate to offer his help. On two particular occasions, God demanded something radical of him. First, he had to leave the Oratorians in order to found a new order, after he noticed that seminarians were in dire need of better formation. Later, along with Madeleine Lamy, he set up another order for sisters who would provide refuge for prostitutes who sought reform.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When our life is lived in such a way that we know who we serve, it is easier to see where God is calling us and to say "yes" to whatever that might be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🙇‍♀️ FAITH CHALLENGE 🙇‍♂️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pause whatever you're doing right now and take a brief moment to turn to God. Tell him that you surrender yourself to him - or if that feels a bit scary, tell him you WANT to surrender yourself to him! Ask him to remind you that he is "the source and the purpose". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #catholictruth | #catholiccharities

This quote really speaks to me, but if I’m being perfectly honest, it also terrifies me. As a mom of children who do not sleep through the night, I am *always* tired. So how do I love without getting tired? But maybe a better question might be—how do I love when I *am* tired? Do I snap at my spouse’s every failure? Do I assume the car in front of me intentionally cut me off? Do I skip the chores I ought to do? Am I impatient with the kids’ every mistake? Am I cross with coworkers? Am I too wrapped up in my own fatigue to notice the needs of others? . Or can I remain patient amidst the exhaustion? Can I respond with grace despite my weariness? Can I love, even when tired? Looking at my own life, it would appear that I cannot. But I trust that with Christ all things are possible. . God help us all to love with your own tireless love. .

The Galleria delle Carte Geografiche (Gallery of Maps) in the Vatican City. This long hall contains 430 year old maps of Italy painted by Italian priest Ignazio Danti under the commission of Pope Gregory XIII. It was started in 1580 and took about 3 years to complete the 40 paintings. On these maps you can see detailed paintings of the major cities in each region as well as any major historical events that happened in that area as well (e.g. the Siege of Malta or the Battle of Fornovo). #history #art #arthistory #italy #italianhistory #pope #papacy #catholicism #catholic #map #maps #danti #vaticancity #museum #vaticanmuseum #rome #dantiwinseverypaintingchallenge

THE SAVING GRACE OF GOD jesusliftedup.com By God’s grace we are saved--We are saved not by works that anyone should boast of their good deeds (Ephesians 2:8-9). However, good works may show that the Holy Spirit is in us, glorifying the Lord and showing our gratitude for the gift of his sacrificial death that saved us from our sins (Romans 6:23; Corinthians 15:57; John 16:13-14).

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" -Edmund Burke One of the most important traits of masculinity is to always stand up against that which is evil. When we dont stand up against evil we allow it to manifest itself and eventually overtake us. I think all of us young men can learn a lesson from the brave boy Jakub Baryła who stood up for what was right and refused to tolerate evil. Tolerating evil is something that only cowardly men do, men who are too weak to do what is necessary no matter the cost. Jakub was initially hesitant to act but after seeing a blasphemous image of Our Lady of Czestochowa he knew that he needed to act. He went to a local parish and asked for a crucifix and a rosary from the local priest. He was inspired by Fr. Ignacy Skorupko who is said to have lead polish soldiers with a cross during the Warsaw battle with the Bolsheviks in 1920. As a result of his actions he was removed by police, when people told him how much this would benefit his future political career he responded by saying "I dont want to be a politician, I want to be a priest" I believe as men we can learn a valuable lesson from what this young man did. Dont allow yourself to tolerate evil. If you hear another boy talking about women in a derogatory manner dont be silent! Stand up for the dignity of women. If you hear a man say that he supports abortion dont be silent! Again stand up for the protection of life. Dont allow yourselves to be conformed to this world! And if they hate you remember that they hated Christ first. Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will." John 15:18 “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. #catholicmemes #christianmemes #protestantmemes #catholics #catholic #catholicism #jesuschrist #catholicchurch #jesus #catholicfaith #church #catholica #faith #god #romancatholic #catholicworld #cathedral #instacatholic #love #christians #hope #christ #christianity #prayer #christian #mass #tlm #traditionalcatholic #tradcat #masculinity

Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desires, and his disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly. - Saint John Eudes #jesuschrist #jesus #belikejesus #imitatejesus #faith #catholicsaints #catholicism #saints #onegod #lovejesus

A throwback to kick off the week: Supreme Knight Carl Anderson gives rosaries to students at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School in Panama City, Fla., November 6, 2018. He also presented a $75,000 contribution to help recovery efforts following the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael. . #kofc #knightsinaction #faithinaction #faith #charity #family #life #catholic #knightsofcolumbus #prayer #rosary #catholicchurch #catholicfaith #catholicism #catholics #jesus #catholiclife #catholicworld #catholicfamily #hurricane #michael #disaster #disasterrelief

@revealing.jesus Inspiration Below 🔽❤️🔽 . Hey Revealers! There is much more ways to petition something to God other than asking for it in prayer. . One thing we can do is fast and offer our fasting to God for forgiveness, thanks or a petition. We of course must do this in moderation so we stay healthy and strong, so we are fully prepared to face any type of temptation. If we starve ourselves, we will be distracted by hunger and be unnecessarily vulnerable against temptation. . Another thing we can to offer to the Lord is a Mass, when we go to Mass, we can begin that Mass by offering it to the Lord for some petition. Offer our prayers in that Mass for this cause. . We can also offer our virtue against temptation. If we know we will be faced by temptation of impatience due to having to go to a job that we easily get impatient with, seek to be patient during the job and offer this virtue as a petition or thanks for God. . These are just a few ways of offering things up to God rather than just a formal prayer. When we begin to get into the mentality where Christ is the center of our life so much so, that we think of Him even when we are simply practicing virtue, then we will be able to do things prayerfully. . Now, we must also be weary about this method as well. We can not turn these offerings to God as our primary reasons for doing things all the time. We can't just be charitable to be only because we want God to answer our prayers. This could create a surface level of charitableness where we don't actually love our neighbor, but love being charitable to our neighbor so we can offer that charitableness to God. We must avoid this surface charitableness, and the best way to do it, it it acknowledging the possibility of it. . . . #bibleverses #bibleverse #jesussaves #scriptureverse #biblestudy #biblestudy365 #dailybibleverse #dailyscriptureverse #scripturebible #dailyscripture #scriptureverseoftheday #bibleverseoftheday #catholic #catholicism #catholicchurch

Saint Domnius Cathedral Bell Tower

A spiritual daughter of Padre Pio was reading a letter from him on the side of a road. The wind blew the letter away, blowing it downhill to a meadow. The letter flew far, far away from the woman, and then suddenly it stopped flying and settled on a stone. In this way the woman got her letter back. The day after, she met Padre Pio who told her: "You have to pay attention to the wind next time. If I hadn't put my foot on the letter it would have flown far away into the valley".✝️ #catholicism #faithful #christian #catholicimagery #jesuslovesyou #catholic #popejohnpaulii #godisgood #catholicmemes #faith #hope #love #jesus #lent #jesuschrist #repost #baptist #vatican2 #drone #prayer #wisdom #church #faithful #archdioceseofmumbai #catholicism #catholicconnect #catholicimagery#lent #mercyofgod #godisgood #catholicmemes #faith#hope #jesus

“All that is His is yours: breath, heart, body, soul, and all His faculties. He belongs to you, but more than that, He longs to be in you. You must then, have one breath with Him, one soul, one life, one will, one mind, one heart. And he must be your breath, heart, love, life, your all.“ Happy feast day of St. John Eudes! Not only he has great writings on the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, but he practiced what he preached in being one with Jesus: he founded two orders and one of them, the Sisters of Charity of the Refuge, was dedicated to provide shelter to prostitutes who wanted to escape that way of life.

God is the only one that can transform all your hard times into joy. He can turn bitter into better for your situation if we trust and have faith in Him. He turns darkness inyo light. . .

“le dijeron a Jesús: —Maestro, a esta mujer se le ha sorprendido en el acto mismo de adulterio. Con esta pregunta le estaban tendiendo una trampa, para tener de qué acusarlo. Pero Jesús se inclinó y con el dedo comenzó a escribir en el suelo. Y, como ellos lo acosaban a preguntas, Jesús se incorporó y les dijo: —Aquel de ustedes que esté libre de pecado, que tire la primera piedra. E inclinándose de nuevo, siguió escribiendo en el suelo. Al oír esto, se fueron retirando uno tras otro, comenzando por los más viejos, hasta dejar a Jesús solo con la mujer, que aún seguía allí. Entonces él se incorporó y le preguntó: —Mujer, ¿dónde están? ¿Ya nadie te condena? —Nadie, Señor. —Tampoco yo te condeno. Ahora vete, y no vuelvas a pecar.” ‭‭ Juan‬ ‭8:4, 6-11‬ ‭NVI‬‬ @cartasdeleditor

*Ad Majorem Dei gloriam* Lesson 7: continued.. Example: The prayer called the Angelus tells the story of the Incarnation. The Angel Gabriel brought to Mary the message that she would be the Mother of the Son of God made man. She asked, "How shall this happen?" The Angel said, "The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee." Mary said, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word." T� V thaihe Word (the Son of God) was made flesh (a real man with a body and soul like ours) and dwelt among us. Jesus Christ is both God and man. As God He is the Son of God the Father. As God-Man he is the son of the Virgin Mary. The Blessed Virgin is truly the Mother of God. In Jesus Christ there is only one Person, the Divine Son of God. The Son of God has two natures, the divine (God) and the human (man) nature. Where Jesus Christ is Jesus Christ is everywhere as God. As God-man (God made man) He is in heaven and in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. (a) He is in heaven, because He ascended into heaven forty days after His Resurrection. (b) He is in the Blessed Sacrament, because the night before He died He gave us the Blessed Sacrament and said He would be present there. He gave His apostles and the bishops and priests who would follow them the power to say Mass and bring Him down upon the altar. He is present in the Mass under the form of bread and wine, and in the tabernacle under the form of bread. God the Son was God from all eternity (Son). In time He became man in Mary by the power of the Holy Ghost (dove). He was born in the stable of Bethlehem. He is present as God and man in the Blessed Sacrament (altar and tabernacle). -WHAT CATHOLICS BELIEVE #one #holy #apostolic #catholic #church #restore #tradition #tridentinelatinmass #catholicism #catechism #reverence #masculinity #feminity #prolife #chastity #purity #holiness #gregorianchant #pray #rosary #wear #veil #scapular #miraculos #medal #hail #holy #queen #motherofgod #stop #abortion # believe
