“Momentary Musings” with Gary Edward Geraci “Immaculate Heart of Mary” Someone once said: “Religion is the opium of the people.” It’s been repeated many times since. My own faith tradition teaches that Christianity was birthed from the Mother of God, Mary. A real human being both pure and graced with an Immaculate Heart, Mary a young woman whom first proclaimed “Let it be done to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38), miraculously conceived Jesus Christ in her womb and then gave birth to him in a humble manger in Bethlehem some many months later. Today, thousand upon thousand Christian denominations exist. Where Christ desired and preached one true Church, multitudes now exist: diluted, watered down, cut with the poisons of heresy, greed, and manipulations of every form. Yet, surrounded by God’s goodness, mercy, and loving tenderness, the grace of God, continuously works to bring all of mankind together through the salve of Christ’s salvation. Moving, saving grace for all eyes to see and for all souls to receive if they would but first choose to do so. And this despite our very best human efforts to corrupt and move something less than the unadulterated truth to all the masses throughout every age. A motive of credibility, and as we say in the Catholic world: ex opere operato, or “from the work worked” that God can and does work healing and conversion through the work of less than perfect instruments.

Today marks 2 years since I said “yes” to the love of my life. One of the happiest days of my life and the best decision I’ve ever made. I knew it was going to be a special day the morning I woke up. It was a gorgeous winter day with the snow falling softly. Peter and I were texting back and fourth deciding to make a date of this wonderful day. We had decided that this would be a perfect day for a road trip to Monestary where there is this beautiful Shrine. The Our Lady of Grace Shrine is a place truly blessed by God. There is a Holy Spring found here which has long been the vehicle of many blessings and graces. Upon arriving it was super cold but very beautiful so we decided to brace ourselves and make the little hike. We started along the walk praying the rosary together, we stopped at each statue and prayed at them and went into the chapel for a short visit and continued on our way. Upon reaching the top we had just completed our rosary and were right in front of a huge beautiful crucifix of our Lord. It was there where we stood and praised him for our beautiful life together. Peter began prayers of thanksgiving for God having placed me in his life. This is where the tears began, before I knew it he was down on one knee asking me to be his wife!! He had a speech, which I unfortunately don't remember half of, because I start balling my eyes out. After he said "will you marry me?" I seriously couldn't even talk, I remember just nodding and saying "Yes," "Yes" Yes" over and over in the smallest voice/sound I could possibly make lol. He was so cute and it was the perfect purposal. I love him so much ♥

How St Clare Ate with Francis and His Companions at St Mary of the Angels. 👇🏼 🧔🏻👩🏼St Francis, when residing at Assisi, often visited St Clare, to give her holy counsel. And she, having a great desire to eat once with him, often begged him to grant her this request; but the saint would never allow her this consolation. His companions, therefore, being aware of the refusal of St Francis, and knowing how great was the wish of Sister Clare to eat with him, went to seek him, and thus addressed him: 💬 “Father, it seems to us that this severity on thy part in not granting so small a thing to Sister Clare, a virgin so holy and so dear to God, who merely asks for once to eat with thee, is not according to holy charity, especially if we consider how it was at thy preaching that she abandoned the riches and pomps of this world. 👸🏼➡️💇🏼‍♀️➡️👰🏼 Of a truth, if she were to ask of thee even a greater grace than this, thou shouldst grant it to thy spiritual daughter.” St Francis answered: “It seems to you, then, that I ought to grant her this request?” His companions made answer: “Yea, father, it is meet that thou grant her this favour and this consolation.” St Francis answered: “As you think so, let it be so, then; but, in order that she may be the more consoled, I will that the meal do take place in front of St Mary of the Angels, because, having been for so long time shut up in San Damiano, it will do her good to see the church of St Mary, wherein she took the veil, and was made a spouse of Christ. There, then, we will eat together in the name of God.” Continues in comments 👇🏼

OKAY SOOO This is 💯 true! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Psalm 23: The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. You set a table before me in front of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the LORD for endless days.

Jesus joins the people going out to John the Baptist in the gesture of repentance, not because there is sin in him, but to make it possible for us to share in his relationship with the Father, announced from the heavens. He goes to the Baptist as a beggar because he takes upon himself our misery. The Lord Jesus lowers himself in his baptism and acknowledges his Father so that we will never hesitate to do the same. In baptism, Jesus gives us an efficacious approach to the Father. ~from the Magnificat 1/13/19 • • • #baptism #mass #sacraments #baptismofthelord #catholic #love #mercy #repentance #forgiveness #magnificat #allthingsmadenew #feastday

“Sunday’s Gift” with Gary Edward Geraci Excerpt from my blog “The Beat Goes On: Drum and Bass.” Feel free to visit my blog; it’s always free - simply click the link in my bio. / G8 Bullet 1 – Getting to the next level; practice. To finally understand something, especially after some degree of effort, is truly one of life's most certain joys. 2. Who can deny the lofty elation one experiences when that wonderful "ah-ha" moment occurs? You've figured something out or you've mastered something complex after a long and difficult struggle. Often it occurs after a torturous low point, a seemingly endless frustration.... nothing seems to be happening anymore, no progress is being made. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, an epiphany! The solution is in your hands. 3. The point must be made, we don't get these if we do nothing. 4. Momentum must be maintained. Effort must be expended. Practice must be worked in and if we are being faithful, we say our prayers too. 5. From the revelation of personal experience, if God and his Church are not part of the equation, I will fail to do my best. 6. But God works in many ways, often allowing us to be "successful" (in a worldly kind of way) even when we are completely distant from him. 7. Growing up, my brothers and I made a conscious decision that we were going to be a band and really nothing else mattered from that point on, at least for a while. We didn't try to excel in sports or academics or religious studies or any other number of things successful teenagers do. Those just weren't our goals.

It’s the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Catholics believe baptism is a sacrament (represents invisible grace). Is it necessary? Well... if you have the knowledge of what it is and that it’s true then yes. But God isn’t bound by the sacraments. For me... it’s necessary. But Bishop Barron points out that it’s not just about checking off a box. And that’s kind of what my whole life has been about. And when my life fell apart I had almost nothing to keep me here. Intimacy, love, vulnerability are so important. Baptism brings you into God’s family, the most holy Trinity. It’s something deep and powerful. It’s intimate and vulnerable. May God help me to welcome this amazing gift so I know through and through that I’m his daughter, that I’m loved. #todaysgospel #morningreading #morningreflection #morningreflections #feastofthebaptismofthelord #jesusbaptism #johnthebaptist #family #sacraments #love #intimacy #vulnerability

Reconciliation. O Holy Spirit. Source of all light, Spirit of wisdom, of understanding, and of knowledge, come to my assistance and enable me to make a good confession. Enlighten me, and help me now to know my sins as one day I shall be force to recognize them before Thy judgment seat. Bring to my mind the evil which I have done and the good which I have neglected. Permit me not to be blinded by self-love. Grant me, moreover, heartfelt sorrow for my transgressions, and the grace of a sincere confession, so that I may be forgiven and admitted into Thy friendship. #catholic #prayer #sacraments #grace

I know I’m a few days late, but Monday marked day 5 of #seek2019, the final day of the conference. I wish I could adequately express into words how much this conference meant to me, but there is just no way. Instead, I will tell you about Fr. Ross. In the airport on my way back from Indy to D.C., my anxiety was at an all time high and I figured it was because I needed to go to confession. I knew it had only been two days since I last went, but a lot can happen in two days. I figured it wouldn’t be too tricky as there were many SEEK attendees at the airport, but if you know me, you’ll know that I hate going to to strangers and asking them for something. Even if the stranger I am asking is a priest and the thing I am asking for is a sacrament. It’s just so weird to me. Well, when I ran into a friend from SEEK and told him and the girl he was with that I needed to find a priest, the girl said to me, “Kelly, they’re everywhere!” I was like “I know but I feel weird.” Finally as one was coming out of the bathroom, the girl said, “Kelly, go up to him! Ask him!” I said, “but he’s looking at his phone right now. What if he’s busy?” She asked, “do you want us (her and the guy I knew) to skip over to him linking arms?” I chuckled and told her I would just wait a few minutes. Well, before I could even blink, she RAN up to him and the next thing I knew she was pointing at me. I was so embarrassed! My friend said, “yeah, I should’ve warned you that she was being serious. She really loves the sacraments!” To my surprise, the priest also ran over to me with the biggest smile on his face and exclaimed, “let me go get my stole!” Not even a minute later, there he was, ready to hear my confession. I was shocked at how long he spent with me, when he could have been continuing his fun with all of his students. But instead he chose to offer me, a stranger, the sacrament of reconciliation, in the airport. I plan on making a longer post about confession, but for now I just need to thank Fr. Ross from Western Washington University. Or as he said, “thanks be to God, not me.”

Baptisms are a very special part of the Sacramental Life of Grace Church. #tbt In the Episcopal church, we baptize adults, children and infants alike, with parents and godparents promising to ensure their children grow up learning about their faith. This Sunday we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ & baptize a few of our own. Join us on Sunday at 10 a.m. for worship as we celebrate these baptisms and continue to celebrate our 5th Anniversary as a church! #graceyukon5 #graceyukon #baptism #sacraments #baptisms #church #yukonok #godsloveisforeveryone

Over the years we have had some AMAZING priests serve at ARMEE. Each one of them have given their lives fully to the Church, and to Our Lord! ARMEE is centered around the Eucharist, the most Holy #sacrament of the Alter, and if we had no priests, we would have no #sacraments. We are grateful for each and every one of them! #prayforpriests Join us THIS Friday January 11th to celebrate 10 YEARS OF MINISTRY, with a night of #discipleship with the #catholicevangelist #stephenvalgos, followed by #adoration and #worship. 6:00pm at OLA! See you there!

❤️🙏🏻✝️ — 💚“Turn to our God, for He will forgive generously.” -Isaiah 55:7💚. — This is the Bible App’s “Verse of The Day” for today, 1/8/19. 🙏🏻 This particular verse resounded with me quite a bit as I posted my verse images from my recent completion of a day in my “Bible In A Year” reading plan. It’s taking me longer, but I’d rather spread it out longer than rush through it. I am truly enjoying this reading plan, and I credit the Bible app as well as the reading plans within it for helping me re-establish my relationship with God. It had been damaged after my mom died because of my seething anger. I needed to SLOWLY bring myself back to God and prayer. This has been amazing. ❤️🙏🏻🙂. — This particular verse warms my heart. ❤️ The Catholic inside of me says that only an absolution of sin during the Sacrament of Confession (or being anointed while ill) will take away one’s sins. Another part of me feels that if you’re truly remorseful and you ask God for His forgiveness, then He will give it to you because Jesus has died for our sins! I just think...what would happen in the instance of a tornado? One cannot attend Confession, right? We all just pray to God for forgiveness (as well as survival!👍🏻). Well, there was MY tangent for the day!! 🙂💜. — #god #godisgood #godisgreat #pray #prayer #godislove #jesuschrist #sin #prayers #bibleverse #bible #verse #theholybible #forgiveness #forgive #ilovegod #christian #christianity #catholic #confession #sacraments #bibleapp #readingplans #lovegod #turntogod
