Now that I have finished this spring semester, I will dedicate more time to blogging on here. I am currently working on a number of blog posts, including ones regarding liturgy, morals, and current trends in the Catholic blogosphere/social media scene. Stay tuned!
"…but Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ – "The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ _ Matthew 25: 37-40
From our friend Gerard O’Connell at America Magazine:
“In a powerful speech to an international conference for peace in Cairo on April 28, Pope Francis pulled no punches as he called on Christian and Muslim religious leaders in Egypt and throughout the Middle East to join in building “a new civilization of peace” by declaring together “a firm and clear ‘no’ to every form of violence, vengeance and hatred carried out in the name of religion and in the name of God” and to “affirm the incompatibility of violence and faith, belief and hatred.”
"…what is needed are peacemakers, not fomenters of conflict; firefighters not arsonists; preachers of reconciliation and not instigators of destruction.” _ Pope Francis spoke these words today during the first day of his visit to #Egypt. Egypt has become a place where hatred and acts of violence have been a daily reality to Christians and Muslims alike. Pray for Pope Francis, for persecuted Coptic Christians, and for all men & women of good will who are victims of terrorism. Francis is certainly prophetic in his words.
“If you must decide between me and the child, do not hesitate: Choose the child – I insist on it. Save the baby.”
Today is a very important feast day in the Church, the feast of St. Gianna Beretta Molla, patron saint of mothers, the unborn, and complications in pregnancy.
As a result of health complications, she chose dying in place of her newborn during labor instead of aborting her baby like the doctors urged her to. She was a doctor, a wife, a mother and the perfect example of who many women aspire to be, by the grace of God. St. Gianna, pray for us!
