EMPTY — but not for long!

Yesterday was Good Friday, and I spent several hours in Church participating in the liturgies of the memories, as we are encouraged by Holy Church.
Today, the Church refers to as Holy Saturday; I feel empty, knowing many Christians want His Resurrection but not His Cross; I cry!
Remembering how He was placed into the tomb and closed, separated, I feel deep mourning. We, the laity and the Church spend at Our Lord’s sepulcher, this day meditating on His Sacred Passion and Death. There is no Mass; the sacred altar is bare.

Knowing that Jesus at any time could have said NO!
STOP!  I will redeem them without all this suffering, 
but would we appreciate it if He did?

This is the Mystery of our Faith!  Remember too, how SHORT
our life is on earth, even 100 years is short compared to eternity!
Reena’s Xploration

Tell the Truth but do it tactfully

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. I have a right, to tell the truth, and to do it tactfully!

A couple of quotes, there are so many but I liked these two.

 “Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.

 “Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.”- Albert Schweitzer. — Abortion comes to my mind!

Be happy, be ethical.

#WordPrompt… It’s Back

Word Press Prompt, this month it is the world BRIDGE; Yes WORLD!

Bridge, so many kinds of them, see here to get my point! Click to see how many

The purpose is to connect!  So why are the governments doing everything possible to disconnect us?
The media is, in my opinion, the dominant spark at "full speed ahead" aimed at the sheeple.  This quote by Winston Churchill makes the point.  "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Life is a journey, and we all want to live in peace with happiness for our loved ones; we travel along, we arrive at a bridge; before we cross, be careful to know what is on the other end of the bridge.  (The connection)  These days do your research, don't blindly cross that bridge!  And above all, pray!  "My longing for truth was a single prayer." ~Edith Stein

As we begin to cross the bridge, it may seem gloomy, dark, and full of wonder; what will we find as we connect to the other side of life?
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." ~Plato

Prayer is light, don't do it alone, don't just follow along AND "Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day."  Jesus Christ



I Believe Because

Today March 8th IS —

March Eighth

According to Wikipedia, today is Woman’s Day!

The saddest part of today is that most women neglect the only woman who deserves to be remembered today and every day. Mary was so favored by God; she was overflowing, full of grace before her conception, He knew her. God’s Masterpiece, she was created with a particular role, to be the Mother of God. 

   God knew that we, His creatures loved by God, would need a Redeemer! For Our God who knows all, He the Creator of all understood that humans who were created in His image, in that we and we alone have an immortal soul, a beginning without an end. His Divine plan was to become a man with a human nature remaining Divine; through the power of the Holy Ghost and taking a human nature from Mary, His chosen mother. Through her free will, she raised the ideal of womanhood by her obedience and fortitude.

Christ loved His mother; her fiat pleased Him. What an example for us, yet today she remains ignored as Jesus was and still ignored by many who claim to follow Him. Many who think of themself as Christian refuse to imitate Christ as we are called to do, love His mother as He did. 

Luke 1; 41 forward

41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb: and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.

45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.

46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord:

The Wonders of Thee!

My inspiration from the image presented below by one of my favorite bloggers at #Keepitalive

Look and see the wonders of Thee!
Your creations, a celestial star we call the Sun
Our gift — to give us what we need!
Your feathered friends graced with wings.
Sing and dance, surrounded by a painted sky
Oh, and so high! A child sees!
A child as to us created in your image —
To live forever with Thee!

Only 6Sentence

Impossible — NOT!

Today I begin again, looking at the challenges, stopping at the Six Sentence prompt encourging to write about the word GUIDE. When I see that word, I immediately think of the HOLY TRINITY!

*********************************

It is impossible to explain the Trinity in six sentences, nor with all the words in the dictionary because it can't be explained; it is FAITH!

Only ONE GOD, but Three Person, entirely in agreement, but each has a purpose.  God the Father is the Creator, God the Son, the Redeemer, and the Holy Ghost is our GUIDE.

If you ask, the Holy Ghost He will definitely guide you to the Truth, not because I say so, but because God says so, "Ask and you shall receive."

Thinking about the mystery of the Trinity, speaking for myself, boggles my mind; however, the idea of not being able to rationalize this mystery keeps me humble; God loves the lowly and hates the proud. 

I love a good mystery, and the mystery of the Trinity is worth thinking about because in heaven, we won't need FAITH; we will know!


Weekend Writing Prompt

Is There a Fork in Your Road?

Decisions, decisions if you truly can’t decide, why not stop and pray to the only One True God. Try it, you might be surprised.

Who is the One True God? Who showed us how to carry our cross, who lived a life of humility. Who but God could rise from the dead, and no one, not even the Jews in His day denied it. Humility; fighting for Truth.
