Be content in any and every situation.

Don’t let your well-being depend on your circumstances. Instead find joy in his precious promise:
-
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will meet all your needs according to My glorious riches. Nothing in all creation will be able to separate you from My love.

This photo was taken, while on my FOCUS mission trip this past spring break. The people that we met, while serving in a remote village in Bueños Aires truly embodied this message. Although they had almost nothing, they were some of the happiest people I had ever met.

Do you know how many verses there are in the Bible about missions? God calls us to go and share throughout scripture. Where is He calling you? “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!””
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭6:8‬

Last weekend was an incredible time of prayer with Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. During my time there Our Lady began to open the door to a relationship with her. She longs to be in relationship with us all. We are her sons + daughters. Today, open your heart to a mother who is gentle + strong, kind + compassionate, holy + perfect. Call upon her intercession + ask her to lead you to her Son.

✰HELLOOO Instagramers! ✰ 
I’m Eliza & I’m going to share a little bit about why I believe in the power of mission:
✰
Last summer, by the grace of my man Jesus, I went on a pilgrimage across Italy with a group of students via TU’s Catholic Newman Center. We ventured through Florence, Siena, Assisi, San Giovanni Rotondo, and of course the holy land and heart of the Church - the Vatican! 
It was the saints who once called these places their stomping grounds that transformed my perspective. While visiting St Catherine of Siena’s childhood home, I was struck by a fresco painted onto a wall of the living room of young St Catherine reaching for a crown of thorns in Jesus’ hand rather than the beautiful crown made of gold and gems in His other hand. She showed a burning desire to know Christ even if that meant leaving behind a life of luxury, even if that meant she had to suffer, and even if that meant a radical life change. One of the most beautiful patterns I saw from each of the saints of Italy was their deep desire to know Christ, and simultaneously to prefer suffering. This is a message that will always be burned onto my heart - to choose suffering and sacrifice for those I love, just as Jesus perfectly exemplified this for us on the Cross.
✰
Jesus desires us, and sometimes to know him is to suffer in the world, but is also to gain an eternal joy that can’t be beat. Because of mission, I strive to suffer joyfully and purposefully for God and for all His people. Over Spring Break, I’ll be heading to Poland to follow in the footsteps of St Faustina, St Pope JPII, St Maximilian Kolbe alongside of some amazing women who are on fire for Christ (FOCUS missionaries, students, and Sisters of Life) via @focusmissions. I’m pumped to learn from these women, their unique experiences, and the fabulous saints of Poland!  #focusmissions

Do not forget to exercise your freedoms in this great democratic nation. Be the difference and speak your truth by following through with your civic duty in educating yourself on current events and being someone who NOSE what they believe in.

I was in eighth grade when I learned about Archbishop Oscar Romero, his life, and his assassination. Romero lived in San Salvador and spoke out against the poverty, social injustice, and torture found there. His actions ultimately lead to his untimely death as he was shot and killed while saying mass.

I have always been a strong supporter for human rights and, at a young age, Archbishop Romero's brave and strident protest for social justice was an inspiration to me. His recent canonization on October 14, 2018 is remarkable and I believe it is a light to be found in the darkness of the world.

In order to help spread this message, I not only exercise my right to vote, but I have also applied to go on one of the #focusmissions to St. Oscar Romero's hometown with @focusmissions through the @focuscatholic organization. Not only would this opportunity help me to grow in my understanding of other cultures, but also in faith life. I hope that through my service to others, I will become closer to God and find my true vocation in life.

As Americans, we have the freedom to express our beliefs through our actions. So, why not go out to the polls today and take the necessary steps to raise our voices and become the change we want to see in the world? 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸#justvoted #yeahthatsme

back in 2016, I attended WYD with @focuscatholic & @focusmissions in Kraków. When applying, I asked myself why it was called a “mission trip”, because after all, it was more of a pilgrimage. We weren’t going to help the poor or feed the hungry. At least, I didn’t think so.
It’s taken me two years to realize: feeding my own soul is the only way I can feed other souls. And a little spiritual food lasts a long time.
And the same goes for you.
Feed your soul.
God’s grace is sufficient.

Hello @focuscatholic @focusmissions , my name is Emily Winner and I’m a sophomore at Towson University. Last year I went on a mission trip to General Cepeda, Mexico. I encountered Christ in a radical way through the poor and through fellowship with my missions team! This year I plan to go to Haiti with focus and the missionaries of the poor. The beauty of serving on mission is realizing that in our brokenness and poverty we can still show the love of Christ to others. Going to Mexico had a huge impact on my life and my faith; and I know going to Haiti will strengthen my faith even more as I experience life with the missionaries of the poor and encounter some of the poorest people in the world. Matthew 25:35-40 #focusmissions

hey @focuscatholic & @focusmissions ! my name is rachel white, but sometimes my friends call me big rach.😆 i’m a junior at the university of tennessee, knoxville majoring in architecture. if the Lord provides, i’m headed across the pond to poland over spring break to spend time with some sisters of life & see some historic & holy sites of st. john paul ii & st. faustina! i would love to go on this mission trip to learn more about those saints that came before us & to take a walk in their shoes & see in what ways i can adapt my life to live for Christ. this trip is an all women trip, & i think it is so important for daughters of Jesus to learn to walk together & build each other up! i am open to religious life, & i think that spending time with some sisters of life would help me discern this vocation. Jesus speaks to me through the saints & in the normal lives they lived & how they were able to turn their lives around & devote themselves to living for Christ. i hope to grow as strong in my faith as to die so passionately for what i believe in. i pray that you’ll help me make this mission trip possible! @focuscatholic @focusmissions #focusmissions 🙏🏼💕

been about three whole months since i’ve left the motherland and i miss the beautiful views and the beautiful souls here even more. PFMTW (post focus mission trip withdrawals) is real, but also a beautiful reminder of how real the Father’s love is and how abundant this life is when it’s lived through Him and with Him. .

"It may be possible for each to think too much of his own potential glory hereafter; it is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbor's glory should be laid daily on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken.

There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilization- these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.  But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit- immortal horrors or everlasting splendors... Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.”

This past summer I was blessed to spend a week serving with the Missionaries of Charity in Naples, Italy. Working with the sisters is hard work, they never seem to take a break. While there, I served along side them in the men's shelter that they run. All of the sisters spoke English, but only two men spoke did. So the sisters were determined to teach me Italian. First they would give me instructions in Italian and make me repeat it back to them and then try to figure out what they had asked me to do. I learned quite a bit from them. My favorite memories from my short week with the sisters are the "cooking classes" I had while preparing meals for the men, and as gross as it sounds cleaning the bathroom. The sister that I cleaned the bathroom with just sang and sang about her love for Jesus as she cleaned the bathroom, and it became very apparent that she was serving Christ through this humble task. Never in my entire life would I have thought to have encounter Christ while cleaning a bathroom! 
Today may we all fight to encounter #Godinallthings -Anne Monnin

I love this little 24 hr adoration chapel✨I was able to spend time in adoration (in this little chapel)  this weekend and wow, talk about starting my week off right. 🙃 Here’s a little excerpt on adoration from @blessedisshe__  that I wanted to share with you all:
•I experience His love, consolation, and compassion by choosing to spend time in His divine embrace. I spend time with Him in the peace and serenity of Eucharistic Adoration.
The Eucharist becomes my refuge of safety. In the silence, I can share my concerns, frustrations, sadness, pain, joy, and happiness with Jesus. In return, He wraps me in His love. He helps me to strengthen my relationship with Him as I embrace the sacredness of these precious moments. This is His holy kiss from Heaven on earth. I am His and He is mine.
•
•
I encourage you all to find time in your week to spend 5, 10, 30 minuets in adoration, even if it’s difficult. God’s got you!💛

I am His and He is mine. • • I encourage you all to find time in your week to spend 5, 10, 30 minuets in adoration, even if it’s difficult. God’s got you!💛 . . . . . . . #bisdailydevotion  #blessedisshe  #catholic  #catholicblogger  #catholicblog  #collegecatholic  #collegeblogger  #collegeblog  #adoration  #perpetualadoration  #jesus  #christian  #biblejournaling  #lifestyleblog  #bloggerstyle  #catholicchurch  #focusmissions  #seek2019

“There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.” — St. Theresa of Calcutta #focusmissions

The goal is to hold Him and love Him as He does for me. To sacrifice everything just as He did. To die to myself in many small ways to maybe show Him a fraction of the way He died for me entirely over and over. Sometimes that means giving Him a second when I haven’t found any other time to give to anything else. Or denying something that put Jesus on the cross in the first place. Or being open to criticism for His name. I understand that I could never live up to Him, but I’m challenging myself to see a glimpse of Him in who I am every day.

Visiting Niepokalanów (City of the Immaculata), the monastery founded by St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, was absolutely breathtaking. Although I could go on and on about the amazing works he carried out, I think this quote (kind of) begins to sum him up “The Cross is the school of love.” He dedicated his life to this place, uniting himself to Jesus and ultimately giving his life at Auschwitz, all the while walking with Mother Mary. Saint Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us.🇵🇱#focusmissions

“Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggles increase.” | St. Rose of Lima 
As my patron saint, St. Rose has taught me humility, authentic love, and most importantly how to see the difficulties in my life as gifts of grace. 
To have the opportunity to visit her home and tomb while on mission with @focuscatholic was a surreal experience. It reminded me that the saints are people just like us. Ordinary people who choose to live extraordinary lives through simple sacrifices of love. 
Today I ask for St. Rose’s intercession to grow ever closer to the sacred heart of Jesus, live in His will and joy, and under his protection always.

Verse 2:
We came to be with the Malaysian community 
What kept us strong was Gods serenity 
So from Bible studies , Lectio and singing about sheep 
May it be Gods love we always get to keep 
There are good ships and wood ships the ships that sail the sea but the best ships are discipleship’s May they always be 
Yesus cinta kamu every single day
Come Holy Spirit teach us how to pray .
Chorus:
It’s time like these we’ll look back 
And think God help us be on your track 
Your love is so strong you gave us your only son 
Help us understand that Your will will be done .

🇵🇱🇵🇱🇵🇱 George Weigel, the biographer of John Paul II, called Kraków the “City of Saints.” Before he was Pope, Karol Wojtyła lived, studied, and worked here during the Nazi occupation. He secretly attended seminary and defied death multiple times (as he would throughout his entire life). Later he ministered as priest and Archbishop of Kraków under a communist government, putting himself at risk to reach out to the youth. This city prepared the world for one of the greatest Popes and Saints of our time. Saint Pope John Paul II, pray for us. 🇵🇱🇵🇱🇵🇱
“For if Kraków was ‘the city where the twentieth century happened’ in a uniquely sinister way, Kraków was also the city where the answer to the horrors of the twentieth century was given, through a vision of divine mercy that was carried to the world by a mission-driven man of God.”
