FAITH AND TRUST

childofthesavior:

Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.
God holds the world in His hand, yet still sees such small details.

TO BE A CHRISTIAN IS A SOURCE OF JOY

Many people perceive Christianity as something institutional — rather than as an encounter with Christ — which explains why they don’t see it as a source of joy.

GOD'S MERCY

"Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously. And assuredly, the angel who guards you will honour your patience." - St. John Climacus
"And even if the sins of soul are as dark as night, when the sinner turns to My mercy he gives Me the greatest praise and is the glory of My Passion." – Our Lord to Saint Faustina

TEMPTATIONS

The devil only tempts those souls that wish to abandon sin and those that are in a state of grace. The others belong to him; he has no need to tempt them.

PRAYER

We must take great care never to do anything before having said our morning prayers…The devil once declared that if he could have the first moment of the day, he was sure of all the rest.

DEATH

blackpaint20:

 Paolo Vincenzo Bonomini, 1757-1839 Allegory of Death oil on canvas 
"Inverting the traditional symbolism of a vanitas, the Bergamesque artist Vincenzo Bonomini depicts the morbid reality of death with exuberant playfulness in this painting. A grinning head is attached to an animated skeletal corpus, shunning the customary representation of a decaying skull covered in cobwebs, while the skeleton, complete with his jauntily cocked knee, seems to be resting before continuing on its way. The hourglass, still quite full of sand, is carelessly held while the skeleton perches on slabs of marble, the principle components for a tomb. Bonomini’s paintings for Santa Grata inter Vites in Bergamo perfectly exemplify his treatment of ‘living’ skeletons. The six paintings of I Macabri, traditionally exhibited in the church only for All Souls Day, portray a veritable skeletal family, completely clothed and going about their daily business: a carpenter with his tools, an elegant couple adorned with hats and finery, a soldier with his drum, two monks bowed in prayer, and a peasant couple resting in the countryside. Included in the painting cycle is an artist painting ‘The Grim Reaper’, in reality a self-portrait of Bonomini with his wife (fig. 1).Although it is difficult to pinpoint exactly where the artist’s interest in death stems from, the loss of his mother and three siblings during his adolescence surely affected the development of his witty fascination in the macabre”

DEATH IS ONE THING THAT MAN CANNOT ESCAPE.
IT IS SURE TO COME
WHEN, NO ONE KNOWS
AND
IT IS ONLY ONCE THAT WE DIE.

SO BE PREPARED FOR THAT DAY.

HOLY SOULS



Let us commend to Jesus Christ and His Holy Mother the Holy Souls in Purgatory, in particular those of our relatives, benefactors, friends, and enemies; especially those for whom we are bound to pray; and let us offer our prayers for them, pondering over the great sufferings which these spouses of Christ endure.
