I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
This advent season, all of us men ought to look towards Saint Joseph as a model true manhood. When his holy family was threatened with persecution, Saint Joseph took his family in their flight to Egypt. We are called to protect and comfort those we love. May we realize that this Advent season! Saint Joseph, pray for us! (follow @catholichildren for more!🇻🇦) #SaintJoseph#Advent#Christmas#Truth#Jesus#Manhood#Gentlemen
Words from the Saints on St. Joseph: "St. Joseph, more than anyone else before or since, learned from Jesus to be alert to recognize God's wonders, to have his mind and hear awake. But if Joseph learned from Jesus to live in a divine way, I would be bold enough to say that humanly speaking, there was much he taught God's Son. There is something I do not quite like in that title of foster father which is sometimes given to Joseph, because it might make us think of the relationship between Joseph and Jesus as something cold and external. Certainly our faith tells us that he was not his father according to the flesh, but this is not the only kind of fatherhood." - St. Josemaria Escriva
Lorsque l'on a la chance de pouvoir se rendre au #domainejeanlouischave pour une dégustation, on goûte l'histoire et on écoute les vins. L' #Hermitage selon #jeanlouischave est toujours un vin d'assemblage. Ce n'est qu'en réunissant plusieurs parcelles qu'on peut comprendre la magie de cette colline qui surplombe le Rhône et regarde vers le sud. Un blanc, un rouge donc et la cuvée #Cathelin produite uniquement sur des millésimes exceptionnels.
La nouveauté se trouve plus bas, sur l'appellation #saintjoseph . Un immense coup de coeur pour le #closflorentin , pensé comme un jardin. On s'y promène, on s'y rencontre, on hume et on contemple. Une ode à l'allégresse qui se retrouve en bouteille, un vin délicat et cultivé.
"Villains are essential. Without them, there is no story. Without the evil, the hero never has the chance to be good. Without Judas’ betrayal, there is no Crucifixion—and without the Crucifixion, there is no redemption. It’s one of the mysteries of evil: somehow the wickedest plots are the things that God uses to save us from the wickedest plots. What we intend for evil, God turns into good." - Mike Aquilina, VIllains of the Early Church. Learn more in the bio link.
This beefy Saint-Joseph from #Delas Freres is a superb example of why the Rhône Valley remains one of the most fascinating and rewarding regions to explore- Tomas Clancy SBP Sep 2018.
