There are two things that I Iove to see captured in a picture. Beautiful Catholic churches and lens flare. My bud, @wldrnssldg14 was able to grab a bit of both. I think I get why J.J. Abrams likes it so much. . . While a bit of lens flare can certainly make a photo pop it doesn’t mean that your spiritual life has to have this same sort of flare and be this epic adventure full of wonder and mystery, deserving a New York Times best seller stamp of approval. No, for most of us, our lives and struggles will seem so dull and boring, that they don’t matter much at all. But you see, that’s where they do mean something. Those are the struggles of humility. Look at Christ’s Passion and death. If you took out the parts where He rose from the dead, earned the forgiveness of sin and opened the gates of eternal life, His death wouldn’t seem that epic at all. It would just seem sad and meaningless. A shame that it happened at all. . . While we’re living through our struggles both physical and spiritual, sometimes it just feels sad and meaningless. We feel as though we need to add some flare in our lives that will help make all this madness seem worth it or at the very least exciting. But take courage and know that ESPECIALLY if the grind of your spiritual life seems to amount to nothing, that if you give it Christ and do it to honor Him, He will sanctify you. He will take a seemingly boring snapshot of you and your life and just when all seems lost, add that special lens flare. The flare that comes this time not from the sun, but from the Son of the Heavenly Father! . . God love you! . . . #Catholic #RomanCatholic #Christianblogger #Christian #Catholiclife #Catholics #CatholicChurch #CatholicFaith #Catholicblogger #youthministry #ministry #ministrylife #Katolik #Faith #Faithblogger #Christians #praytheRosary #Salzburg #Christianity #Austria #austria🇦🇹 #Catholicism #evangelize

" Ó Maria uma espada terrivel traspassou hoje Vossa santa alma. Além de Deus, ninguém sabe do Vosso sofrimento. A Vossa alma não se abate, mas é corajosa, porque está com Jesus. Doce Mãe, uni meu coração a Jesus, porque só então suportarei todas as provações e experiências e, só em união com Jesus, os meus pequenos sacrificios serão agrádaveis a Deus. Mãe dulcissima, ensinai-me a vida interior. Que a espada dos sofrimentos nunca me abale. Ó Virgem pura, derramai coragem no meu coração e velai por ele."

We have to understand that in God’s sight, when a man and woman marry and join their bodies together, when a husband and wife make love, it is a living picture of the spiritual reality of marriage two people melded into one. But this physical joining is only one part of the union. Marriage is the combining of a man and woman at every level not just sexually but emotionally, spiritually, and in every other way. In God’s plan, sexual union was never meant to be separated from this total union. C. S. Lewis compares having sex outside of marriage to a person who enjoys the sensation of chewing and tasting food, but doesn’t want to swallow the food and digest it. This is a perversion of God’s intent. Food was meant to be chewed and also swallowed. In a similar way, the sex act was meant to be part of the whole life union of marriage. When we attempt to experience sex apart from this union, we’re disrespecting and dishonoring marriage. #church #christ #catholictradition #catholicfamily #thecatholicwoman #catholicwoman #catholicmass #holyfamily #totustuus #catholicgirl #blessedisshe #catholic #catholics #catholicchurch #catholicism #catholicconnect #catholiclife #catholicfaith #romancatholic #instacatholic #catholicfamily #praytherosary #bissisterhood #catholicworld #catholicworld #lifeteen #catholicsaints #jesusitrustinyou #saintjoseph #catholico #catholicwomen #cslewis

I knew about the Blessed Mother’s selflessness before I knew long division. I had been told about Mary’s devotion to God more times than I had been told to clean my room. I had heard she was full of grace, before I even knew what that meant. But last week I realized that for my entire life I had overlooked one particular aspect about her. A trait that now seems so obvious, but is so infrequently discussed. Her forgiveness. • Standing at the foot of the cross, I can’t imagine the torture she endured as she watched her Son die a slow and painful death. She had been told He was the Christ, the Savior of the world. Now her only Son hangs on a cross, stripped, beaten, hardly able to breathe, covered in wounds and blood, at the hands of us sinners. How easy it would be for her to hold onto anger. Even after the resurrection— when the triumph over Death was revealed, to have that engrained memory of the crucifixion be reason enough to distance herself from the fallen state of humanity. • But rather than widening the gap between us, she closed it by intimately participating in our lives as a Mother. Christ bestowed the gift of her motherhood to both John, and all of humanity before His dying breath. “Woman, behold thy son.” “Son, behold thy mother.” • Forgiving those who trespass against us is difficult. Forgiving those who trespass against those we love? That can be even harder. It takes such grace to truly forgive. Let us ask for the intercession of the one who is full of grace, so we may receive hearts filled with total forgiveness.

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Tesoro: 👉 Giudizio Universale - 1541 d.C. Artista: 🇮🇹#Michelangelo Luogo:📍#Roma - #Vaticano, Cappella Sistina Photo: 📸 @96mat Tag: 🔑#tesoriitaliani Family: 👉 @europetreasures 👉 @contemporarytreasures 👉 @archaeology.treasures ✤ ✤ ✤ 🇮🇹 Il Giudizio Universale (1535-1541) è un affresco di Michelangelo Buonarroti che decora la parete dietro l'altare della Cappella Sistina. Si tratta di una delle più grandiose rappresentazioni dell'ultima venuta alla fine dei tempi del Cristo per inaugurare il Regno di Dio, nonché il più grande capolavoro dell'arte occidentale in generale. Il Giudizio universale segnò la fine di un'epoca e costituì uno spartiacque della storia dell'arte e del pensiero umano: all'uomo forte e sicuro dell'Umanesimo e del primo #Rinascimento, subentra una visione caotica e angosciata che investe tanto i dannati quanto i beati (in foto), nella totale mancanza di certezze che rispecchia la deriva e le insicurezze della nuova epoca. ✤ ✤ ✤ 🇬🇧 "The Last Judgment" (1535-1541) is a fresco by Michelangelo Buonarroti decorating the wall behind the altar of the Sistine Chapel. It is one of the greatest representations of the last coming of #Christ at the end of Time to inaugurate the Kingdom of God, as well as the greatest masterpiece of Western art in general. The fresco marked the end of an era and constituted a watershed of the history of human art and thought: to the strong and secure man of Humanism and the first Renaissance, it follows a chaotic and anguished vision that invests both the damned and the blessed (pictured above), in the total lack of certainty that reflects the drift and insecurities of the new era. ✤ ✤ ✤ #italia #beniculturali30 #italianpainter #rad #painter #renaissance #volgoarte #storia #italianart #jesus #jesuschrist #christian #catholic #totalmonuments #michelangelobuonarroti #creation #pittore #italianartist #religion #lovesmonuments #volgoarte #miguelangel #Gesu

God has a beautiful plan for your life. And He wants to lead you each step of the way. That is why one of the names of God, Emmanuel, means "God with us.” God wants to be intimately involved in our lives. He wants us to know His voice and follow Him. In fact, He wanted to be with us so strongly that He sent His Son, a part of Himself, to physically walk the earth. That baby in the manger was God and He is still with us today. #popejohnpaul #mothermary #blessedvirginmary #adventskalender #advent #christ #saintjoseph #catholic #catholics #catholicchurch #catholicism #catholicconnect #catholiclife #catholicfaith #romancatholic #instacatholic #popefrancis #praytherosary #prolife #prolifegeneration #adoration #eucharist #catholicwomen #traditionalcatholic #catholicwoman #blessedisshe #catholicgirl #church #tojesusthroughmary #jesusitrustinyou
