In the life of the body a man is sometimes sick, and unless he takes medicine, he will die. Even so in the spiritual life a man is sick on account of sin. For that reason he needs medicine so that he may be restored to health; and this grace is bestowed in the Sacrament of Penance.
St. Thomas Aquinas
And Catholics are like…
I was reading Song of Solomon and John and Romans today and I realized that God loves us as much as he loves Jesus. I mean, I know He loves us, but as much as His precious Son? That’s awesome. Not just awesome like really cool, but awe-inspiring. I feel so blessed
Please pray for my sister-in-law. She’s pregnant and was admitted to the E.R. with chest pains. The doctors are currently trying to rule out the possibility of a blood clot in her lung.
Thank you for your prayers, and God bless <3
Today, the Lord said to me, “My daughter, look into My Merciful Heart and reflect its compassion in your own heart and in your deeds, so that you, who proclaim My mercy to the world, may yourself be aflame with it.”Jesus Christ to Saint Faustina, Diary 1688 (via burning-lampstand)
"sed et benignitas et misericordia subsequetur me omnibus diebus vitae meae et habitabo in domo Domini in longitudine dierum"
"But both kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of The Lord unto length of days"
- Psalm 23:6
Nothing is far from God.
Just started following you, but based on this I’m gonna be a big fan of your blog.
Praying! *hug*Thank you, thank you, thank you! It truly means a heck-of-a-lot. I’ve been feeling it. And remember, I’m praying for you guys. God’s got it covered :)
Why is it so pretty? Don’t keep it on for too long! =D
Reblog if you do too. Just to prove that it is more normal than what people actually think.
You might think it’s weird for me (as a guy) to reblog this, but I do.
Our greatest fault is that we wish to serve God in our way, not in His way- according to our will, not according to His will. When He wishes us to be sick, we wish to be well; when He desires us to serve Him by sufferings, we desire to serve Him by works; when He wishes us to exercise charity, we wish to exercise humility; when He seeks from us resignation, we wish for devotion, a spirit of prayer or some other virtue. And this is not because the things we desire may be more pleasing to Him, but because they are more to our taste. This is certainly the greatest obstacle we can raise to our own perfection, for it is beyond doubt that if we were to wish to be Saints according to our own will, we shall never be so at all. To be truly a Saint, it is necessary to be one according to the will of God.
Saint Francis de Sales
