(part 1) Your Faith is not a feeling. As @fathermikeschmitz said, "your faith is not something that you can lose. You can only give it away or choose not to use it". You give it away piece by piece to something such as an idol. In my own experience, you don't go one day from worshipping God to immediately worshipping a bronze statue. It's a daily choice of either saying yes to God, or saying no. I used to be a fat kid. Although cute and loveable (I'd like to think I still am), I was severely obese. I'd stare at the mirror looking at the folds of fat my body containted and started to engage in destructive behaviour. This body dysmorphia was further heightened by Fat jokes by both family and friends (Please realize that your words have a profound impact on others). Naturally, as an insecure young teenager, I wanted desperately to change people's perception of me, I wanted others to look at me with admiration and respect. Not with eyes of disgust and loathe. So, I sought refuge in bodybuilding. Granted, at it's core, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look better and be healthier, it becomes a problem where it takes God's place in your heart. 
I started to train like a mad man, it was close to seven days a week of heavy lifting and excessive dieting. I went from being the Fat kid to being a "buff" guy. I'm a cradle Catholic, and yes, my faith was important to me. But, piece by piece, day by day, I gave the gym and bodybuilding more worth than it deserved. It consumed my thoughts constantly, I couldn't go for more than 5 minutes without thinking of deadlifting/benching/squatting (Leg day really sucks).
Soon, it became my identity. My worth was calculated on how big my arms were, and my body fat percentage. It was dictated upon how I looked. So naturally, my insecurity became worse. Whenever I looked in the mirror, it was the same as it was in the past, constant criticism and destructive thoughts. I could never enter into a dating relationship because of fear that my body wasn't adequate enough. I drew my entire confidence from my body and not my character. I could wake up at 4.30am in the morning to train, but for God? Nah, he didn't matter. Only my gains did.

(Luk 17 :26-37)

Luk 17:26Dan sama seperti terjadi pada zaman Nuh, demikian pulalah halnya kelak pada hari-hari Anak Manusia:

Luk 17:27mereka makan dan minum, mereka kawin dan dikawinkan, sampai kepada hari Nuh masuk ke dalam bahtera, lalu datanglah air bah dan membinasakan mereka semua.

Luk 17:28Demikian juga seperti yang terjadi di zaman Lot: mereka makan dan minum, mereka membeli dan menjual, mereka menanam dan membangun.

Luk 17:29Tetapi pada hari Lot pergi keluar dari Sodom turunlah hujan api dan hujan belerang dari langit dan membinasakan mereka semua.

Luk 17:30Demikianlah halnya kelak pada hari, di mana Anak Manusia menyatakan diri-Nya.

Luk 17:31Barangsiapa pada hari itu sedang di peranginan di atas rumah dan barang-barangnya ada di dalam rumah, janganlah ia turun untuk mengambilnya, dan demikian juga orang yang sedang di ladang, janganlah ia kembali.

Luk 17:32Ingatlah akan isteri Lot!

Luk 17:33Barangsiapa berusaha memelihara nyawanya, ia akan kehilangan nyawanya, dan barangsiapa kehilangan nyawanya, ia akan menyelamatkannya.

Luk 17:34Aku berkata kepadamu: Pada malam itu ada dua orang di atas satu tempat tidur, yang seorang akan dibawa dan yang lain akan ditinggalkan.

Luk 17:35Ada dua orang perempuan bersama-sama mengilang, yang seorang akan dibawa dan yang lain akan ditinggalkan." Luk 17:36(Kalau ada dua orang di ladang, yang seorang akan dibawa dan yang lain akan ditinggalkan.) Luk 17:37Kata mereka kepada Yesus: "Di mana, Tuhan?" Kata-Nya kepada mereka: "Di mana ada mayat, di situ berkerumun burung nasar."

Love is for Eternity by Denny Dlabal

Love is the reason that I smile
Love is the reason I go the extra mile
Love is in giving, more than you receive
Can’t you see
Love is for eternity

There is a war being waged
Who’s side are you on?
He who does not gather, scatters
Why lose your soul?
When nothing else matters

Do not be afraid,
We were made for love,
Eternal joy forever,
Free to choose,
Free to lose,
Love or hate,
Choose your fate

Placed before us
Is fire and water,
Reach out your hand,
And you will be given,
One leads to hell,
And one leads to Heaven.

Some here think that God is a joke,
So the devil becomes their master,
Infinite joy is suddenly traded,
Traded for the lies.

Let us sing a new song,
Lift up all our voices,
Sing unending praises,
As Heaven above rejoices!
There is a name in Heaven,
A name which all adore,
Let us declare it boldly,
That JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
.

I never started this with the intention to turn it into a side business. 🤷‍♀️
.
I remember chatting with my friend about the opportunity and being surrounded by moving boxes. 🤦‍♀️
.
We had just moved into our new house 🏡and I had 2 small children 👶🧒under 4 and was working part time as a kindergarten teacher 👩‍🏫 and part time as an officer in the military. 😬
.
My plate was not only full, it was overflowing. 😯
.
But I had a nagging sense that this was just something I had to do for me. 😁
.
I still needed to hit my health and fitness goals 🏋️‍♀️ and figured if I was helping others, it would keep me accountable. ✔
.
Well, 3 years later it has not only done that but it has allowed me to make amazing friends 💙 and earn a weekly side income 💰 for bills and travel with my family. 😊😊😊
.
And to think I almost said no. 😔
.
Thanking God today and every day that I pushed my fears aside and went for it. It has become such a blessing in my life that I will not take for granted. 💗

Thank you generous supporters and prayer warriors! Last night we took hats, scarves, gloves, and blankets out to the KM64 women and also provided blankets to the Espero women in town today. It's in the 20s at night lately which is so dangerously cold for many.

On Tuesday we will head out to deliver medicine, Jesus, and presents (a communion service + Christmas cookies and playdough) and say our goodbyes until February. Please pray for the women and children and for our hearts. We look forward to a little time in the US for the holidays but will miss them so much.

Señor mío y Dios mío, gracias por tomarme en tus manos y hacerme sentir que estoy cuidado y protegido por Ti. Esa es la expenencia que me ayuda a vivir en medio de tantas situaciones difíciles. Hoy, al dormir, cuando luego de toda Ia Jornada me aquieto y busco descansar, te suplico que envíes tu Espíritu Santo y me Ilenes de tu paz para no tener incomodidades, ni Insomnio, ni nada que perturbe mi sueño. Que tu Espíritu Santo me dé serenidad, consuelo, paz, amor y me haga comprender que Tu actúas en medio de todas Ias realidades de mi vida siempre estas conmigo y eso me alegra mucho cierro mis ojos con la seguridad de que Ios tuyos, mi Dios, están abiertos vigilando mi sueño y protegiéndome, porque eres el Guardian que nunca duerme. Gracias. porque sé que estás actuando en el corazón de todos aquellos que buscan dañar a Ios demas y olvidan ser solidarios y amorosos con todos. Mañana será un día de bendición y lo voy a vivir en tu presencia.
Amén.

#caffeinefiendfriday HEART > RESUME ▫️▫️▫️
This has been a big theme in my life over the last couple of weeks. I’ve started contributing to @igyouth’s Fuel app reflections over the last few months and when I was preparing today’s readings... these words hit me hard. 
As a chronic ‘Martha’ I’m consistently having to remind myself of the need to be like Mary and simply sit at His feet. 
I’m consistently reminding myself that joy, reward, salvation, peace are not things that need to be - or can be - earned. 
I’ve realised in new ways recently that the intentions and attitudes of my heart are far more pleasing to Him than anything I can do, achieve or succeed in. 
He has been humbling me a lot lately. ▫️▫️▫️
I have hidden your word in my heart. — Ps 119:11

One of the hardest things is to fully love without expecting even a thank you in return. But once we establish that virtue, we can be closer to holiness!

For most of my life, my family and I only went to Mass on Christmas and Easter. I didn’t have much of a prayer life and despite the fact that I received Confirmation, I was indifferent to Catholicism. However, that changed during my last semester of college. On Christmas Eve, I noticed something in my parish church that I had never seen before. It was a liturgical calendar! I studied the whole calendar. The colors, seasons, and saints’ days fascinated me.
In January of that year, I took a course called ‘Medieval Religion.’ I learned more about the saints, their relics, and pilgrimages. I was attracted to the heroic lives of Sts. Hilarion, Mary of Egypt, Sylvester, and many others.
...
The powerful intercession of Our Blessed Mother, St. Joseph, and the rest of the saints helped bring me closer to Jesus.
If I had never noticed that liturgical calendar, I don’t know if I would be a seminarian today. So never underestimate the power of the small things. It wasn’t some grandiose apologetic argument that brought me closer to Jesus. It was a humble calendar in the back of my parish church. God is full of surprises and He’s always showering us with His gifts. Will you accept His gifts for you?
-Adam, Pre-Theology II, Diocese of Raleigh

O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what I am going to say before I even say it. You both precede and follow me and place your hand of blessing on my head. Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. - Psalm 139 💐

As a catholic mom, one of my main priorities has always been for Olive to learn about God & His endless love and hope that as she grows, her love for Him will also increase. So when I heard about the @mycatholickids Sticker Jesse Tree & and accompanying Bible character book, I immediately fell in love. Such a fun way to begin our Family advent devotion and to also help Olive learn about characters from the bible leading to the creation story while she is learning about God. 
The sets launched yesterday, but you can still catch some great deals to have in time for the advent season! & also check out their giveaway that ends TODAY! ❤️ @mycatholickids

@Regran_ed from @churchpop -  Love this advice from Saint Pope John XXII! We’re talking about overcoming fear and handling stress as Catholics today during the episode LIVE @ 6pm ET on #ChurchPOP’s Facebook page.

I can’t describe in words how it feels to pray before the Tabernacle while my 17 year old son, Liam, plays the pipe organ during his lesson. There simply are no words. #CatholicLife #Catholic #music #boymom #girlmom #CatholicMommy #teens #OLW #musicspeaks
We obviously all know what God meant by this...❤🙏🙌 GOD IS GOOD! GOD IS FAITHFUL! GOD IS REVEALING HIMSELF TO THE GODLESS.

For some reason when you are trying to finish up a grocery trip that is about to go south breadcrumbs become ridiculous hard to find. I approached one of the store clerks working in the bread area and asked where the breadcrumbs were & of course they were behind me. I thanked him for the information & apologized for not being capable of finding them on my own & mentioned something about how chaotic a trip to the store can get when you have little people with you. Without hesitation he said, “can the kids have a muffin? Maybe it will buy you some shopping time.” In my mind I was thinking how they didn’t deserve a muffin because they were being rambunctious and really did not allow me the quiet trip to the store that I had wanted. Also, they hadn’t eaten anything for lunch so did I really want to reward them further? I turned off all of the voices and I choose the kind man’s offer. I’m always so happy to hear stories of strangers being kind to other people & love to pay it forward myself but when it comes to me I think I don’t deserve it because my cart isn’t that full with “just two kids.” Accepting his simple offer quickly evaporated the stress I was feeling from the shopping trip. My frustration with my kids melted away as I realized it wasn’t the kids fault that I was being overly ambitious and convinced myself again that “I could do it all.” As the kids picked their muffins “O-o-o Child” by the Five Fairsteps came on. Grateful for kind strangers and not so subtle signs from above to be kind to myself on this motherhood journey. 👦🏻👧🏻

The Roman Catholic Church 💒 teaches us that “Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his death, in a particular judgment that refers his life to Christ: either entrance into the blessedness of heaven🌤- through a purification or immediately, - or immediate and everlasting damnation.” (CCC 1022). It is then through CCC 1031, that we come to know of the term purgatory as the final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned.🔥
.
Knowing then of the existence of purgatory and the importance of lifting our prayers for the souls of the faithfully departed, let us then in one voice recite this prayer that was given to our dearest St Gertrude the Great by our Lord Jesus Christ.🌟
.
❤️ Eternal Father, I offer You the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, those in the Universal Church, in my home, and in my family. Amen.🙏🏼☺️🙏🏼

#appreciationpost This was sign No. 4 for the McAuliffe wedding all the way in Ireland, AND is also an opportunity for me to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported me and this little side gig of mine! ▫️▫️▫️
These orders not only help fill my creative buckets but first and foremost, helps fund my work on campus. 
For those that don’t already know, I’m a campus missionary by day (gallivanting as a creative at night 👩🏽‍🎨) and I have a real heart for journeying with students and young adults and encouraging them to discover who they’re created to be by first discovering Who they were created by.
▫️▫️▫️
Feel free to DM me if you’d like to support a missionary via an order or a kind donation!

Yesterday, I celebrated a Mama-to-be with a girl's day out for lunch and a much needed mani pedi pampering. ⁣
⁣
Naturally, I thought it was a good opportunity to bring my new hand form display⁣ to also get a mani. 💅 The nail technician must have thought I was crazy, but I think all of us picked the right color and it turned out great! 🤣  What do you think? ⁣
⁣⁣
Till next time! 🙏❤💎

Even though I picked John Paul up from school early, and we live what’s usually only a ten minute drive away, it was a totally different story today with the first snow. Our town is in the hills, and the entire drive was treacherous. There’s one final large hill you have to drive up to get to the center of town and to our house, and I was seriously doubting that we were going to make it. After we’d been stuck for about fifteen minutes because all the cars ahead of us were struggling so much, I wrote some friends asking them to pray for us. At least three cars ahead of us had given up for the time being and were sitting by the side of the road waiting for help. (Please pray that those people get home safely!) I would have turned around, but there were at least twenty cars behind me that I could see (including a few school buses...please also pray that those students and drivers make it home safe!!)
•
Once there was some movement, I tried to go up the hill, but our car immediately started slipping all over the road. I stopped and was trying to hide the fact that I was freaking out and crying from the kids, trying to figure out what the heck to do next, when a man suddenly appeared at my window. He told me he’d talk me through it and push our car side to side until I was up the hill. It took about eight minutes or so, but it worked. I have no idea if the man came from a nearby car or house or what, but I told him that he was an angel to us! He even joked with the kids as he pushed because he could see how scared they were.
•
The whole time we were making this treacherous drive home, the kids and I were praying Hail Marys. I remembered hearing of Our Lady of the Snows, so the kids and I asked her especially to pray for us. Then when we got home, a huge package was on my doorstep, and inside was a large outdoor Mary statue—a surprise gift from my best friend who had recently visited and heard me remark that I’d love to put a Marian statue by our rose bushes someday. So now here she is, our very own Lady of the Snows. Pray for us sweet Lady. Thank you God for getting us home safely, and stay safe out there friends! 💗

My little clan on a better, brighter day last week after coming out of children's adoration. I was so so excited that a)Kilian could be put in the stroller, and b)Alejo was responsible enough to push the stroller while supervised. I feel like I'm seeing the beginnings of that easier time ppl talk about. You know, when the older kids are capable of helping a bit because they're no longer babies themselves? Which is both 😃🎉 and 😭😭. .

Have you heard of St. Homobonus? He was a cloth merchant who lived out extraordinary holiness in a very ordinary career. As St. John Paul II described, “From the time of his radical conversion to the Gospel, Homobonus became an artisan and apostle of charity.” Read more in this week’s #SJIblogpost on the site.

Quote of the day from Aquinas! Friendships matter. Aquinas recognizes the fact that they are among the most prized things on earth; and yet we tend to underestimate their importance. Sirach 6:14 says, “A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who has found one as found a treasure.” Do you treasure your friends? How can we better recognize the importance of our friends in our lives? •

How far is too far?  This is one of the most common questions I get from teens.  Here are four simple rules that will help you:
 1. The Grand Canyon rule 
2. The ice cream rule 
3. The swimsuit rule 
4. The vertical rule

I’ve had so much positive feedback about including a female shepherd in my hand-painted nativity. Here’s this year’s version of her!! ♥️

"Women have an incredible aptitude for compassion and empathy. In witnessing as female missionaries across the globe, women can often just BE with the person, listening. People at times just need to be heard and witness the loving gaze of Christ that is present in the eyes of the missionaries. Their ‘witness of presence’ can restore and heal so many wounded souls and be a sweet respite for life’s hardships." // Yvonne O’Brien, Co-Founder of @christinthecity⠀

Women are guardians of the Gospel message. It is women who are strong enough to bear Christ’s suffering with Him. And it is women who are the first witnesses of Christ’s Resurrection – the first entrusted to share the Good News. ⚔️

Say yes... and God will take care of the rest. I spent this Saturday in a cloistered Poor Clares convent in the Los Altos Hills. It was quiet, peaceful, and the retreat (put on by the @diocesesanjose) gave us equal time to listen to talks, ask questions, and spend time in prayer to discern what vocation God was calling each of us to. Discernment should not be an excuse to not do anything. We should be involving God in every decision in our lives, from jobs to moves, and we should practice saying yes in whatever God is calling us to do right now. And right now, I’m called to be here, in the city of St. Francis. I spoke to a man named Darren this morning. He needed $1 more for his BART fare, and knowing that situation very well, I opened up my wallet and my heart. He thanked me profusely and told me it made his day. He’d had an awful night, he said. He got beat up for the ring he was wearing and broke his finger trying to fight back, but now he’d be able to eat and get to where he needed to go. THIS is what we’re called to: to listen, to love, to show mercy, and to bring Heaven to earth in the day-to-day. In whatever vocation that may be.
