Without charity, you will never see God

Image
How many Christians are damned for lack of charity? No, my dear brothers and sisters, even if you could perform miracles, you would never be saved if you have no charity. To have no charity is not to know your religion. Without charity you will never see God; you’ll never go to heaven. Go to mass every day receives Holy Communion every day and without charity your soul will be lost.

Unhappy sinner, you love those who only agree with your interest and never go against you in any of your affairs. You love those who flatter you and those who appreciate your good works; who love to thank you for your kindness; who give you plenty of attention and recognition. But if they treated you with unkindness and did not recognize your good works, you would have nothing to do with them.
These works are only for your own glory.

True charity is not condition on what you will receive in return for your good works, but on how pleasing you are in the eyes of Jesus. Look at St. Francis De Sales, Who tell…

Divine Mercy Sunday and the Two Great Sacraments

Article from Catholic Times.


"The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion  shall obtain complete forgiveness of sin and punishment.” (Diary 699)
Where do the greatest miracles take place?Our Lords words to Saint Faustina:

“In the tribunal of mercy [the Sacrament of Reconciliation]... the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated” (Diary 1448).

I would have never thought the greatest miracle would be in the confessional, but that’s what Our Lord told St. Faustina. I would have thought it would be some healing service, or I would have to go to Lourdes, or Fatima, or to one of these apparition sites. But, no, Our Lord says in the Confessional the greatest miracles take place.

Our Lords words to Saint Faustina:

“To avail oneself of this miracle, it is not necessary to go on a great pilgrimage or to carry out some external ceremony; it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative and to reveal to him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine…

Jury Duty and Headship in the family

Jury Duty and Headship in the family


Last week I had one week of jury duty; during the trial I noticed there are five lawyers involved in the trial. The judge is a lawyer as well. Does this mean he is smarter and knows more about the law than the other four? No, those four lawyers Bow down to the judge. The judge has a role to play, and has the final authority. Who is the best lawyer in that room? Is it really the judge? However, the two lawyers recognize the rule and authority of the judge, even though he’s just a lawyer as they are.
Why do they do this?
They do this so that there is an order in the court room. You cannot have five judges in the court room. Everyone will be screaming and yelling. There would be complete disorder, just as in a family there has to be order. Somebody has to have the final say so. There has to be an authority figure in the family, especially for the children. There has to be headship, as God so clearly stated in Scripture.

Sex and Hunger

Image
Every human being has two instincts that are basic, fundamental and strong. The first one is hunger theother is sex. God implanted both of these inside of us. It is thanks to hunger that we preserve individual life. It is thanks to sex that we preserve social life. God instilled in us these two desires with the intentions to be used for good, but because of human freewill there is the likelihood of abuse in both instincts.
Overindulgence of the hunger instinct it can lead to the sin of gluttony and of health consequences in the body. The same principle can be applied to overindulgence in sex, in that by allowing filth to enter the mind - it corrupts the body in its action and leads the spirit down a dark path. One would not put garbage into the stomach but yet so many put garbage into the mind.
Sex and the two trains For example, let’s compare the sexual instinct to the analogy of an engineer and two trains; one a slower paced and the other a faster paced train (Sex instinct). The engi…

The Greatest Miracles

Where do the greatest miracles take place?

Our Lord’s words from the Diary of Saint Faustina:
“In the tribunal of mercy [the Sacrament of Reconciliation]... the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated” (Diary 1448). 

I would have never thought it would be in the confessional, but that’s what Our Lord told Saint Faustina. I would have thought it would be some healing service, or I would have to go to Lourdes, or Fatima, or to one of these apparition sites. But, no, Our Lord says in the Confessional.

Our Lord Speaks:
To avail oneself of this miracle, it is not necessary to go on a great pilgrimage or to carry out some external ceremony; it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative and to reveal to him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine Mercy will be demonstrated” (Diary 1448).

He doesn’t say; go to Medjugorje or Lourdes, or Fatima, but to the confessional. How many of you
have been to Medjugorje? What’s the key focus at Medjugorje? “the Sacramen…

To Follow the Lord

“But woe to you who are rich for you have received your consolation.”(Luke: 6, 24)

“And He called to him the Twelve, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts … and they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.” (Mark 6:7, 13)



He instructed them to take nothing for the journey, no food, no sack and no money in their belts, which seems like a very odd command. You would think our Lord would better equip his apostles in their journey. What leader in his right mind would send his troops into the battlefield so poorly prepared? Would it not been better if He would’ve supplied them with plenty of food and plenty money for their journey? Our Lord’s command seems impractical and irresponsible. This is why we should pay close attention to it. Where human wisdom fails, divine wisdom is at work. He comma…
