Centenares de isleños colmaron las calles de Altagracia en la Isla de Ometepe para festejar a San Diego de Alcalá, en una colorida procesión de ramas, palmas, cañas, flores este viernes. Según relatos, en la zona hubo una plaga de zompopos que estaban acabando con cultivos y árboles frutales, por lo que los antepasados pidieron al Santo su intercesión.

“Thinking about death is not a gruesome fantasy,” the Pope said. “Whether it is gruesome or not depends on me, and how I think about it – but what will be, will be.” When we die, we will meet the Lord – “this is the beauty of death, it will be an encounter with the Lord, it is Him coming to meet you, saying, “Come, come, [you who are] blessed by My Father, come with me.”
The diocese’s Spirit 2017 Men’s Conference brought about 600 men to DeSales University to examine the challenges of today’s culture and to discover what God is calling them to do as learners and teachers of the faith. #catholic#catholics#catholicmen
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, there are three theological virtues: faith, hope and charity. .
Being charitable is an important virtue for Catholics of all ages and is a virtue that can be taught early on. .
While it may not come easy for children, we posted a new journal which explains why it is so important and how to make sure our children learn how to be charitable.
How do you teach your children to be charitable? .
The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better."
-- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Happy Friday y'all! much love ❤️
Do you dislike the Pope?
Pray for Him!!!
O Lord, we are the millions of believers, humbly kneeling at Thy feet and begging Thee to preserve, defend and save the Sovereign Pontiff for many years. He is the Father of the great fellowship of souls and our Father as well. On this day, as on every other day, he is praying for us also, and is offering unto Thee with holy fervoUr the sacred Victim of love and peace.
Wherefore, O Lord, turn Thyself toward us with eyes of pity; for we are now, as it were, forgetful of ourselves, and are praying above all for him. Do Thou unite our prayerswith his and receive them into the bosom of Thine infinite mercy, as a sweet savor of active and fruitful charity, whereby the children are united in the Church to their Father. All that he asks of Thee this day, we too ask it of Thee in union with him.
whether he weeps or rejoices, whether he hopes or offers himself as a victim of charity for his people, we desire to be united with him; nay more, we desire that the cry of our hearts should be made one with his. Of Thy great mercy grant, O Lord, that not one of us may be far from his mind and his heart in the hour that he prays and offers unto Thee the Sacrifice of Thy blessed Son. At the moment when our venerable High Priest, holding in His hands the very Body of Jesus Christ, shall say to the people over the Chalice of benediction these words: "The peace of the Lord be with you always," grant, O Lord, that Thy sweet peace may come down upon our hearts and upon all the nations with new and manifest power.
Bismillah Al-Kafiroon 109:1-6
Say: O ye that reject Faith!
I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Way, and to me mine.
#Jews#Christians#Catholics , #Buddhist and #Atheist this is to be understood... to you be your way of life and to me be mines.
“Most high, glorious God,cast Your light into the darkness of my heart. Give me right faith, firm hope, perfect charity and profound humility, with wisdom and perception, O Lord, so that I may do what is truly Your holy will. Amen”
Before every post that I do I pray to God asking which photo best suits for us today and what type of reflection should I give under His name? Some may say St. Francis is trying to help Jesus off the cross but what is really happening is that Jesus is embracing St. Francis and moving him to His most Sacred Heart. In times of suffering or difficultly brothers and sisters, Our Lord never abandons you. No matter how much you don’t feel His presence or prayers being answered; He is right there embracing you just as He is with St. Francis. It is that embrace, that quietness where He is allowing you to feel His suffering on the cross. This is good because how beautiful it is to share in the suffering of Christ, even if it’s just a small portion of what He experienced. So when you are anxious, scared, lonely, sick, struggling with sins... always recourse to Jesus and allow Him to embrace you. But first, take off the veil of shame... Once you remove that veil, then you will see Jesus and the plan He has for you more clearly. Have a blessed day! Much love from your IG Catholic brother😇

The holy rosary 🙏
1. The Agony in the Garden
Jesus went to a place called Gethsemane to pray. "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will." (Mt 26:36-46)
2. The Scourging at the Pillar
The chief priests with the elders and the scribes held a council. They bound Jesus, led him away, and handed him over to Pilate. Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, had Jesus scourged and handed him over to be crucified. (Mk 15:1-16)
3. The Crowning with Thorns
They stripped off his clothes and threw a scarlet military cloak about him. Weaving a crown out of thorns, they placed it on his head, and a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" (Mt 27:27-31)
4. The Carrying of the Cross
Jesus, weak from being beaten, was unable to carry His cross to Golgotha alone. Simon, a Cyrenian, helped him. (Mk 15:20-22)
5. The Crucifixion
When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him and the criminals there, one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do." (Lk 23:33-46)
