Keep Us Free From All Distress

Started by Mike in Prayers. Last reply by Joan N May 7. 10 Replies

"Keep us free from all distress" says the Priest during the communion ceremony. Isn't that just what we all want?  No distress means happiness.  Even if poor or lacking of things, as long as happiness is in your life, all is well.  Some who are…Continue

I am the Immaculate Conception

Posted by Tony Rosa on December 5, 2018 at 3:39am 1 Comment

When our Blessed Mother was asked by Bernadette to tell her name, she answered, "I am the Immaculate Conception"; this is the Immaculata's definition of herself (Conference, 26 July 1931). By these luminous words (at Lourdes) she tells us not only that she was immaculate in her conception, but beyond this that she is the Immaculate Conception as such. Some-thing white is one thing; the whiteness of a thing is some-thing else. Something perfect is one thing; the perfection of a thing is something else. When God said to Moses, "I am the one who is," God was telling him: "What is proper to my essence is that I should always be, by my very nature, of myself, with no other principle of being." The Immaculate Virgin, of…

Job had his faith tested again and again.  Though wonderful things happen in the Church, we still live with the knowledge of money laundering and sexual abuse.  Maybe our faith is being tested.  Will we stay the course or abandon ship? 

At this time, I still choose to be faithful.  Police, teachers and priests don't have as much of my  respect as when I was 20.  However, at that age, I didn't fully realize they were human also.

I keep my eye on the prize - one day being in heaven.  Saying my prayers, helping others, and receiving Holy Communion is how I plan to do it.  I can still be a good and faithful servant even if some of those around me are not.

Here in the USA, we'll soon be celebrating Thanksgiving.  It's time for me to review my Gratitude List.  Not only do I have such things as my easy access to church and loving family/friends but also my having a great vacuum system and those handy ATM's!

My not having to pump water or wondering where I'll get my next meal is a huge blessing.  Goodness, for food I just have to go to my refrig or call and have it delivered. Abundant blessings! 

This is a good time of year for me to add to my list.  What are some of the things that make you feel grateful?

May it be so.

Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and give thanks. 

Let's try to head for the light and be positive.  Let's expect and aim to have a good day.  There are plenty of disturbing and heart-wrenching stories out there.  I try ... most of the time, to see what I can do to make my space in this world a little bit better for others.  In doing so, a warm feeling or a smile comes over me.  I try not to allow the darkness to color my day.  Anyone feel the same way?
