While prince harry and meghan were getting married... on saturday, may 19, the same day that prince harry and meghan markle were married, over 600 couples of all ages joined in the celebration of mass in thanksgiving for the sacrament of marriage at westminster cathedral in london.
the mass is celebrated annually to give thanks to god for the many graces that he bestows on those who have made their vows in the sacrament of holy matrimony. special mentions are made for those celebrating their 10th, 25th, 40th, 50th anniversaries and beyond!
We’re leaning on the intercession of our lady of knock for the unborn of ireland. #8thamendment#prolife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
lord jesus, you are the source and lover of life. reawaken in us respect for every human life.
help us to see in each child the marvelous work of our creator. open our hearts to welcome every child as a unique and wonderful gift.
guide the work of doctors, nurses and midwives. may the life of a mother and her baby in the w**b be equally cherished and respected.
help those who make our laws to uphold the uniqueness and sacredness of every human life, from the first moment of conception to natural death. give us wisdom and generosity to build a society that cares for all.
together with mary, your mother, in whose w**b you took on our human nature, help us to choose life in every decision we take.
we ask this in the joyful hope of eternal life with you, and in the communion of the blessed trinity.
our lady of knock, pray for us.
Catholic quote of the day by - saint philip neri. pray for us!
philip neri was a sign of contradiction, combining popularity with piety against the background of a corrupt rome and a disinterested clergy: the whole post-renaissance malaise.
at an early age, philip abandoned the chance to become a businessman, moved to rome from florence, and devoted his life and individuality to god. after three years of philosophy and theology studies, he gave up any thought of ordination. the next 13 years were spent in a vocation unusual at the time—that of a layperson actively engaged in prayer and the apostolate.
as the council of trent was reforming the church on a doctrinal level, philip’s appealing personality was winning him friends from all levels of society, from beggars to cardinals. he rapidly gathered around himself a group of laypersons won over by his audacious spirituality. initially, they met as an informal prayer and discussion group, and also served poor people in rome.
at the urging of his confessor, philip was ordained a priest and soon became an outstanding confessor himself, gifted with the knack of piercing the pretenses and illusions of others, though always in a charitable manner and often with a joke. he arranged talks, discussions, and prayers for his penitents in a room above the church. he sometimes led “excursions” to other churches, often with music and a picnic on the way.
after spending a day hearing confessions and receiving visitors, philip neri suffered a hemorrhage and died on the feast of corpus christi in 1595. he was beatified in 1615 and canonized in 1622. three centuries later, cardinal john henry newman founded the first english-speaking house of the oratory in london.
Ile to razy w życiu człowiek martwi się tym, co sobie ludzie pomyślą. boimy się przyznać do jezusa, nosić medalik, postępować zgodnie z przykazaniami, czy robić znaku krzyża przy kościele. po co to wszystko? ludzie zawsze oceniali i będą oceniać, tak niestety jest. to od nas zależy czy będziemy się tym przejmować. tylko bogu można sądzić, dlatego jego trzeba się lękać.
a ty kiedy ostatnim razem negatywnie skomentowałeś kogoś? kiedy bałeś się jak ludzie zareagują?
od dziś myślimy o bogu, a nie o tym, co ludzie pomyślą 😇 #powoŁana#jesus#god#religion#catholicism#wiara#religia#motivation#quotes#godisgood#picoftheday#bible#catholic

After recent events, these past few months. everything i have wrote about in my upcoming book "the ether dialect" has been confirmed to be true, but slightly worse than i depicted. the sense of betrayal, pain, oppression and silence all mixed in a document is how i feel. because i'm not allowed to speak due to persecution, i'm not allowed to think because of this egregore mentality, suppressing real world issues, thus preventing solutions. i have no love for the left, i don't want to know any of them. it's time for genuine people to stand up for their country, around the world. for our namesake. and for the namesake of my tiny island. i will not allow good people fall due to the hands of satanists
If you participated in the ssc rosary novena, thank you, for believing god and trusting him to answer your petitions.

We live in a broken world. the legalization of abortions in ireland, the mass school shootings; have weighed heavily on my heart for the last day. how can we learn to value each other more? how can we reach out to those in need? how can we help others understand the truth, and actually believe in it? i wish i had the answers to these questions.... but fortunately, god does. in a world that devalues life, we should continue to hang onto god’s word, and love those who cannot hear his voice. to come together and solve these problems requires patience, hope, honesty, and love; virtues that are hard to find today, but will bring us closer to him. there is an eternal life beyond this world; fear not, as there is hope for all of us. be an example of the lord’s love and mercy to all you know, and they too may hear his voice.
sending prayers to all of you during this time, or during times you hurt. rest in him, and sleep knowing that his word is truth and life. #catholicism#catholicwoman#blessedisshe#trust#hope#catechism#catholicwomen
