Feliz Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe! 486 years have passed since the Virgin’s apparitions to Juan Diego which started the homage of La Virgen de Guadalupe. Around 8-million people are expected to visit to the Basilica de Guadalupe in Mexico City today, and churches around Southern California will be filled with parishioners. Many Catholics will be singing, praying and thanking her for the miracles they’ve asked for. Thanks to #abc7eyewitness @mywildperspective for sharing this image of “La Virgen de Guadalupe” mural at Ramona Gardens in Boyle Heights.
Today we honor you Our Lady of Guadalupe 🙏🏽

A gentleman said: “My left knee was swollen for days and I had great pain in that part of my leg. The doctor told me the situation was very serious and he prescribed a lengthy series of injections. Before starting the treatment I wanted to go to Padre Pio. After my confession I spoke to him about my knee and I asked him to pray for me. When I was leaving San Giovanni Rotondo that afternoon, the pain disappeared. I observed my knee and noted it was not swollen anymore! Both my legs were now normal. So I immediately ran to Padre Pio in order to thank him.
He said: “You do not have to thank me, but you have to thank God! Afterwards, he added smiling: “Tell your doctor he can get the injections himself.”
Saya ingin mengucapkan syukur atas terkabulnya Doa Novena Tiga Salam Maria, Rosario dan Novena Hati Kudus Yesus.
Tahun ini saya mendapat masalah besar dalam pekerjaan dimana saya merupakan salah satu karyawan yang terkena PHK bahkan hanya dikabarkan H-1.
Sebelumnya memang saya sudah berencana untuk resign tahun ini dengan kondisi saya mendapatkan pekerjaan baru namun Tuhan punya rencana lain dalam hidup saya.
Sungguh kabar ini membuat hati dan pikiran kacau karena saya merupakan salah satu tulang punggung keluarga.
Dalam satu bulan terakhir sudah lebih dari 5 perusahaan saya lalui dengan penuh perjuangan namun juga dengan penuh keyakinan bahwa Tuhan akan menolong saya.
Singkat cerita dengan bantuan doa kedua orang tua dan juga berdoa secara pribadi pagi dan malam, saya meneteskan air mata memohon pada Bunda Maria dan Tuhan Yesus untuk berkenan memberikan belas kasih-Nya dalam kesulitan pekerjaan ini.
Saya juga memohon agar bisa mendapat pekerjaan sebelum merayakan Natal tahun ini.
Dalam waktu kurang lebih satu bulan Puji Tuhan Doa terkabul.
Saya diterima di dua perusahaan besar di Jakarta.
Sungguh Tuhan menjawab melebihi apa yang saya harapkan.
Dengan memohon bimbingan-Nya saya juga dipermudah untuk memilih perusahaan yang saya inginkan.
Tahun ini saya diberi masalah besar namun Tuhan juga yang berkenankan memberikan hal indah terjadi atas masalah tersebut.
Saya bisa merayakan Natal tahun ini dengan penuh sukacita karena terkabulnya sebuah Doa.
Terimakasih Bunda Maria dan Tuhan Yesus.

PRAYER TO ST. LUCY, PATRON OF THE EYES
We present ourselves before thee, O virgin Martyr, beseeching thee to obtain for us that we may recognize in His lowliness that same Jesus Whom thou now seest in His glory. Take us under thy powerful patronage. Thy name signifies light; guide us through the dark night of this life. O fair light of virginity! enlighten us; evil concupiscence has wounded our eyes: pray for us, O thou bright light of virginity! that our blindness be healed, and that rising above created things, we may be able to see that true light, which shineth in darkness, but which darkness cannot comprehend. Pray for us, that our eye may be purified, and may see, in the Child who is to be born at Bethlehem, the new Man, the second Adam, the model on Which the life of our regeneration must be formed. Pray too, O holy virgin, for the Church of Rome and for all those which adopt her form of the holy Sacrifice; for they daily pronounce at the altar of God thy sweet name; and the Lamb, Who is present, loves to hear it. Heap thy choicest blessings on the fair Isle, which was thy native land, and where grew the palm of thy Martyrdom. May thy intercession secure to her inhabitants firmness of faith, purity of morals, and temporal prosperity, and deliver them from the disorders which threaten her with destruction.
Dom Guéranger OSB

In 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby was the editor-in-chief of French Elle, the father of two young childen, a 44-year-old man known and loved for his wit, his style, and his impassioned approach to life. By the end of the year he was also the victim of a rare kind of stroke to the brainstem. After 20 days in a coma, Bauby awoke into a body which had all but stopped working: only his left eye functioned, allowing him to see and, by blinking it, to make clear that his mind was unimpaired. Almost miraculously, he was soon able to express himself in the richest detail: dictating a word at a time, blinking to select each letter as the alphabet was recited to him slowly, over and over again. In the same way, he was able eventually to compose this extraordinary book.
By turns wistful, mischievous, angry, and witty, Bauby bears witness to his determination to live as fully in his mind as he had been able to do in his body. He explains the joy, and deep sadness, of seeing his children and of hearing his aged father's voice on the phone. In magical sequences, he imagines traveling to other places and times and of lying next to the woman he loves. Fed only intravenously, he imagines preparing and tasting the full flavor of delectable dishes. Again and again he returns to an "inexhaustible reservoir of sensations," keeping in touch with himself and the life around him.
Jean-Dominique Bauby died two days after the French publication of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. This particular piece is inspired by Bauby’s trip to Lourdes. #jeandominiquebauby#ellemagazine#thedivingbellandthebutterfly#lourdes#virginmary
Many people think hell is a place where fire burns and people scream. Many people are wrong. Hell is not just fire and screaming. Hell is intense torture. Fire and screaming happens even on earth, and the suffering on earth is nothing compared to the suffering in Hell.
You see, hell wasn't designed for human beings. Hell was designed for the devil and his angels. When they sinned, and disobeyed God, they were condemned to an eternity of separation from God. Hell, therefore, was NOT designed to torture flesh, but to torture spirits. The pain is a hundred fold worse.
Your soul feels more pain than your flesh can ever feel. If worldly fire is unbearable, why are you so casual about eternal supernatural fire?
Let no one deceive you that your heaven is guaranteed. Those who do that do not care about you. They care more about how you perceive them. On my part, I'd rather tell you the truth about hell than sweet-talk myself into your heart. If you die in mortal sin, YOU WILL GO TO HELL!
But God is merciful. He has given us the sacrament of reconciliation. He has taught us what is right and what we must do to inherit eternal life. Love God above all things, therefore, and love your neighbour as yourself.
Today is Day Three (PDF link in bio @youthdive). Have you gone for confession?
MOST holy and adorable Trinity, one God in three Persons, I believe that You are here present; I adore You with the deepest humility, and render to You, with my whole heart, the homage which is due to Your sovereign majesty.
Grant me to pray as I ought.
O MY God, I most humbly thank You for all the favors You have bestowed upon me up to the present moment. I give You thanks from the bottom of my heart that You have created me after Your own image and likeness, that You have redeemed me by the precious blood of Your dear Son, and that You have preserved me and brought me safe to the beginning of another new day. I offer to You. O Lord, my whole being, and in particular all my thoughts, words, actions, and sufferings of this day. I consecrate them all to the glory of Your name, beseeching You that through the infinite merits of Jesus Christ my Saviour they may all find acceptance in Your sight. May Your divine love animate them, and may they all tend to Your greater glory. Amen...
