REBIRTH really is PURIFICATION

Inspired by the word prompt of The Daily Spur, and Open Night of dVerse.

 

PURIFICATION —Just because you don’t believe, doesn’t mean it isn’t so! God does exist, and we will all stand before Him. Never gamble with eternity, it is forever!

Consider your life, is your conscience purified, satisfied that when you stand before the merciful judge, all is right. God gives us time to do His Will.

Confession is good for the soul, seek out a Traditional priest and talk to him. You don’t believe in confessing to another, but then why go to a therapist, counselor, or a best friend to confess your guilt. They can listen but have no power to wash your soul. Only a duly ordained priest can do that in the name of Jesus. “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” [John 20:23]

It is a great feeling to be disinfected, purged from guilt, free and filled with His grace; absolution is there for the taking. Confession is an excellent gift from God, and it is FREE. No therapist fees. Try it you will love it! Purification!

St. Mary Magdalen, Penitent

Mary Magdalen, so highly praised in the Gospel on account of her heroic conversion and fervent love of our Saviour, was born at Bethany, not far from Jerusalem. Her parents, as many authors say, were nobles. She had one brother named Lazarus, and a sister called Martha. When the fortune which her parents had left was divided, the Castle, or as others say, the borough of Magdalum, came into her possession from which she also derived her name. St. Luke writes that before her conversion, she had been a sinner in the city, by which some authors understand that she had been addicted to the horrible vice of impurity; while others say that she had given scandal to the whole city by her splendid garments, frivolous manners, and her unrestrained associations with those of the opposite sex. The same evangelist also says that our Lord…

A Rare Letter

My 6 word story about this letter!

“A treasure! Overlooked, a second chance!

Sharing With Others -

It is rare today to find a Traditional Catholic who has not heard of Rev. Alban Butler, his writings of “The Lives of the Saints.”

The photos here are that of two volumes dated 1833 that I possess. Butler

This beautiful letter I want so much to share now is seen printed at the beginning pages; a letter his mother wrote to him and his two brothers, just before her death. Guaranteed to bring a tear or two to the reader.
The grammar is just as she wrote it.

Lives

My Dear Children,
Since it pleased Almighty God to take me out of this world, as no doubt wisely foreseeing I am no longer a useful parent to you, for no person ought to be thought necessary in this world when God thinks proper to take them out. I hope you will offer the loss of me with a resignation suitable to…

A PIOUS BELIEF

THINGS WATERY my contribution; a reblog of my post on January 20.
This idea of “things watery” reminds me of a pious little story presented here below:

Here is a little story, I am sure many of you, especially those who attended Catholic Schools back in the 40’s – 50’s have heard.

One happy, perfect day in heaven it was decided a contest was in the making for the angels. The rules were they would fly down to earth and find a gift for the Baby Jesus. Whosoever would find the best gift was the winner.

Anxious as they all were they polished their wings and got ready to take off, “Get ready, get set, and GO!” Wings started to flutter; it seems a hurricane entered heaven.

Landing deep within a lush rural forest one such angel found the most beautiful flower, with a luxurious fragrance that seemed to fill the entire forest.

Another angel witnessed the birth of a perfect child with lovely thick locks of hair that seemed to cover its entire head. So the…
