Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace: it renders our bond with the Church more perfect, and 5) it gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witness of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of the Cross.” That is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says about Confirmation. Let us take today to reflect on our own Confirmation and look for ways to aid young Catholics in keeping the reverence of this sacrament. God Bless!
April 14th. How great the Mercy of God is! He is always seeking ways to reduce the amount of time that souls spend in Purgatory. With this Divine Mercy novena intention the Lord Jesus has created a new day especially dedicated to aiding the Holy Souls in addition to the Feast Day of All Souls (2nd Nov). May we all be so blessed with his mercy. God Bless!
April 13th. A verse form the book of Psalms. Only those souls totally purified of sin can remain in the presence of God. To be in God’s heavenly presence and to be stained with sin is agony. So the Mercy of God prepared a place of purification; the experience we call Purgatory. The good Lord grants us many opportunities on earth to become completely converted to Him before we die, because He knows that any converting we didn’t do in this life will have to be done in the next life. God Bless!
Our Bishops are speaking up with bold statements like never before. In their statements they speak about our Religious Liberty, how our founding fathers of this country protected our conscience rights from the very beginning. Now that is all in jeopardy as the current government is trying to change what made America so great. Please take the time to listen. God Bless!
