There is no holiness without the grace of God. And this grace can be obtained by our prayers.Pope St. Pius X

Psalm 103:1-5

Bless the LORD, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name!

Bless the LORD, my soul; and do not forget all his gifts,

Who pardons all your sins, and heals all your ills,

Who redeems your life from the pit, and crowns you with mercy and compassion,

Who fills your days with good things, so your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

God does not love you because you are good; God loves you because God is good.

Walking by faith means being prepared to trust where we are not permitted to see. John Blanchard

2 Corinthians 5:6-7

So we are always courageous, although we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord,for we walk by faith, not by sight.

 

A Daily Dose January 27, 2012


Sin has four characteristics: self-sufficiency instead of faith, self-will instead of submission, self-seeking instead of benevolence, self-righteousness instead of humility. E. Paul Hovey


James 1:13-15

No one experiencing temptation should say, “I am being tempted by God”; for God is not subject to temptation to evil, and he himself tempts no one.Rather, each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire conceives and brings forth sin, and when sin reaches maturity it gives birth to death.

Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman

Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Cultivate a special devotion to God’s Word, whether studied privately or in public; always listen to it with attention and reverence, strive to profit by it, and do not let it fall to the ground, but receive it within your heart as a precious balm, thereby imitating the Blessed Virgin, who “kept all these sayings in her heart.” Remember that our Lord receives our words of prayer according to the way in which we receive His words in teaching. St. Francis de Sales

Romans 10:8-10

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” that is, the word of faith that we preach,for, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.

I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am. John Newton

Mark 1:16-20

As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen.

Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets.Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.

The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the child. The mother doesn't learn to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. Mother Teresa

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

A Daily Dose January 20, 2012


Anxiety is the soul's greatest enemy, sin only excepted. When the heart is anxious and disquieted within itself, it loses the power to preserve those virtues which are already acquired, and also the means of resisting temptations of Satan, who does not fail to test the strength of that rope. St. Francis de Sales

Deuteronomy 31:8

It is the LORD who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.

 

A Daily Dose January 19, 2012

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll;

Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Psalm 145:14

The LORD supports all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.

We always find that those who walked closest to Christ were those who had to bear the greatest trials. St. Teresa of Avila

Ephesians 4:1-6

I, then, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call;one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

If we really think that home is elsewhere, and that this life is a 'wandering to find home,' why should I not look forward to the arrival? C. S. Lewis

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we also await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.He will change our lowly body to conform with his glorified body by the power that enables him also to bring all things into subjection to himself.

If ever we are going to be made into wine, we will have to be crushed; you cannot drink grapes. Grapes become wine only when they have been squeezed. I wonder what kind of finger and thumb God has been using to squeeze you, and you have been like a marble and escaped? Oswald Chambers

Mark 2:22

Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.

Lord, increase in me the virtue of fortitude.

The virtue of fortitude does not necessarily imply that we do not feel fear or anxiety. It does imply that we do not succumb to that fear. It means believing that we are never alone, that there is always Someone with us who loves us and upon whom everything is dependent.

Father Tadeusz Dajczer

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before uswhile keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. For the sake of the joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God
