Hoje, tire um tempinho para dar uma passa na igreja para ver Jesus, 5 minutos é o suficiente. Te garanto que mudará o seu dia. Jesus está exposto e espera por ti. Quando estiver lá, faça essa oração e se não puder ir faça ela agora, com muita fé: - Graças e louvores se deem a todo o momento. - Ao Santíssimo e Diviníssimo Sacramento. (3x)
Comunhão espiritual: Eu quisera, Senhor, receber-Vos com aquela pureza, humildade e devoção com que Vos recebeu Vossa Santíssima Mãe, com o espírito e o fervor dos Santos.
Não se esqueça de marcar seus amigos para irem ou para rezarem contigo. Tenha um bom dia e que @maria .passanafrente sempre. #mpnf#mariapassanafrente#jesus#fé#paz#pray#prayer#catholic#church#faith#santissimo
This joke from the Pope about gossip will make you smile. But it's a great reminder too! Pope Francis has frequently warned that gossip is an act of terrorism and is one of the ugliest things you can find in Christian communities. #popefrancis#catholic
Friends, in today’s Gospel, the Pharisees plot to kill Jesus because he raised Lazarus. We see here a particular form of opposition, namely, scapegoating. René Girard identified the scapegoating mechanism as basic to the maintenance of order in most human communities. When tensions arise among people due to competitive desire, scapegoats—usually outsiders—are automatically singled out, and upon them is cast the collective anxiety of the group. .

Saint of the Day: St Catherine of Sweden
The 4th child of the Swedish Prince Ulf Gudmarsson and of St Bridget, Catherine was educated at the convent of Riseberg. At the age of 14 she was married, in deference to her father’s wishes, to a pious nobleman of German extraction, Eggard von Kuernen, a life-long invalid with whom, by mutual consent, she lived in continence.
St Catherine was widowed in 1349 and was thenceforth in Rome at her saintly mother’s side, aiding her in all her charitable endeavours and imbibing her ascetical way of life. In 1372 the two widows made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and when Bridget died in Rome two years later, Catherine brought her body back to Sweden and had it interred at the Bridgettine mother-convent at Vadstena. She then became the head of that foundation and ruled it with great skill. She took an active part in resolving the ecclesiastical controversies of her time, steadfastly supporting Urban VI against the anti-pope Clement II. Catherine died as Abbess of Vadstena on 24 March 1381 and, though not formally canonized as such, veneration of her memory as a ‘Saint’ has been approved by Pope Innocent VIII who reigned from 1484-92.
Reflection: “True humility consists in being content with all that God is pleased to ordain for us, believing ourselves unworthy to be called his servants” (St Teresa of Avila). #Saintoftheday#Catholic#Saints
[Long post ahead]
Being at home alot during my time of recovery forces me to face my insecurities and inevitable feelings of loneliness & abadonment. Although I’m recovering well physically, I realise I still have this other ‘disease’ that’s been haunting me since childhood - experiences of rejection by others that ultimately led to self-condemnation. As I was deeply reflecting on this and going through the painful memories, the words from Isaiah 53:5 came to mind: ‘By His wounds, we are healed.” So I read the entire passage of Isaiah 53 and it spoke of how Jesus also went through loneliness and rejection by the very people He created and loved. As I continued reflecting, I thought of the moment in which Jesus was crying out to His Father while He was dying on the cross: “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” There were other things which the Lord revealed to me during reflection, but one truth still stands - By His wounds, I am healed.
I don’t have to go through this suffering alone, because Jesus understands what I’m going through and that He is with me through it all. He proves again and again that I’m not alone and ‘forgotten’ through the love, affirmations and encouragement that I received from friends, family and community ❤️

Palm Sunday Vigil Mass at St Joseph’s, Neutral Bay with Fr John Langtry. He is amazing to come all the way to Neutral Bay as he is not always in the best of health. He is a very much loved priest. #catholic
