1. Jonah is the fifth of the Minor Prophets.
Apart from the book traditionally ascribed to him, Jonah is mentioned once in the Old Testament: 2 Kings 14:25.

2. In the book which bears his name, in the opening verse it is stated that "the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amathi, saying: Arise and go to Ninive, the great city, and preach in it: for the wickedness thereof is come up before me."

3. But the Prophet tries to escape the task assigned to him. He boards a ship bound for that port, but a violent storm overtakes him, and on his admission that he is the cause of it, he is cast overboard.

He is swallowed by a great fish and after a three day’s sojourn

ST FAUSTA AND ST EVILASIUS, MARTYRS - 20th SEPTEMBER

~thread~
1. St Fausta and St Evilasius were 4th century martyrs. Their feast day is #Sep20.

St Fausta, a girl of thirteen, was brought up in the Faith. Having lost her parents
#StFausta #StEvilasius #Christian #martyrs Image
2. at a young age, she led a virtuous and prayerful life. Following accusations that she was a Christian, she publicly answered in the affirmative. Thereupon she was dispatched to Evilasius, a pagan priest, for him to persuade her to change her mind and to sacrifice to the
3. pagan idols.

Coaxing and threats having been in vain, they locked her up in a wooden box, but no amount of trying to saw it did damage the box. St Fausta remained unharmed, guarded by divine power.

But be zealous for the better gifts. And I shew unto you yet a more excellent way.

If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1Cor12:31-13:13 #HolyMass #Sep16) ~ DouayRheims #Bible #BibleVerses
2. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with truth; beareth all things, believeth all things.. #love
3. hopeth all things, endureth all things...

We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face..

And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. (1Cor12:31-13:13) ~ DR #Bible #Corinthians #faith #hope #charity

There is an understanding of God that a man will have that can only be gotten through faith in God and in His son Jesus Christ.

#Faith
There are sacrifices we give unto God, be it sacrifices of our heart or of our substance that are sacrifices of #Faith.

Like Abel and Solomon, God responded to Abraham's sacrifice of faith. See Hebrews 11:17

#Faith
It is by #Faith that we can please God, for through this we learn of the testimony of Enoch -- the man that walked with God for 300 years and did not see death.

Hebrews 11:5-6
Genesis 5:21-24

“Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa & hold a fast on my behalf, & do not eat or drink for three days night or day. I & my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.

"And they did not love their lives so much as to shrink back from death."

They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened to ten virgins, who taking their lamps went..to meet the bridegroom..five of them were foolish, having taken their lamps, did not take oil with them..And the bridegroom tarrying, they all slumbered and slept. (Mt25:1-13)~DouayR. #Bible Image
2. And at midnight there was a cry made: Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye forth to meet him..

And the foolish said to the wise: Give us some of your oil. The wise answered..Lest perhaps there be not enough for us and for you, go ye rather..and buy for yourselves. (Mt25:1-13)
3. Now whilst they went to buy, the bridegroom came: and they that were ready, went in with him to the marriage, and the doors were shut..at last came..the other virgins, saying: Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answering said: Amen I say to you, I know you not. (Mt25:1-13) #Bible

You see my faith before my profession. You see my ethnicity before my qualifications. You see my gender before my clincial experience. You see my age before my accolades. To say therapy isn't social justice or political guess what, its not a choice. You can't eradicate my Truth.
If I am Seen, my Clients are Seen. If I can accept my Truth, I can accept my Client's Truth.

No Counsellor/Therapist is 'neutral' in the room. Our visible identity (ethnicity, gender, faith, age, ability/disability etc) can't be removed, dismissed, ignored, made invisible. Our identity is reacted/related/responded to (consciously/unconsciously). It's how we work with it.

Seeing as he is currently suffering poor health, we thought we might tweet a classic:

Traditionalists, Infallibility and the Pope (1995, 2006)
by @frcekada:

traditionalmass.org/images/article…
The very men who appear to possess authority in the
Church teach errors and impose harmful laws.
How reconcile this with infallibility?
"If you now assist regularly at the traditional Latin Mass, it is because you concluded at some point that the old Mass and doctrines were Catholic and good, while the new Mass and modern teachings, somehow, were not.

Fundamentals of prayer - What makes your prayer more powerful and effective? Pray with faith, belief and then surrender! Your prayer doesn’t have to be scripted. It could be you simply conversing with the higher power.
Pray anytime in the day, multiple times in the day, can be a few seconds or can be as long as you want.
Pray with consistency - Make it a habit and lifestyle! Don’t just pray when your life is in turmoil. Once you’ve prayed with intention, faith and belief, surrender peacefully. Don’t try and do the higher power work and micromanage all hat you prayed for. Surrender!

Charlie Kirk calls out Cowardly “woke” Christians and I want to point out some things.

THREAD

I can hear y’all rolling your eyes 🙄 at another Charlie Kirk video from Emily. It sounds like 2 balloons rubbing together.

Charlie is talking about people in the church kowtowing to a movement that’s based on a lie.
I KNOW that America is plagued by the demon of #deception (AKA Lies).

Much of the church is getting sucked down into this vortex of virtue-signaling and the same judgmental attitudes that the Pharisees had when they wanted to stone the adulteress.

I KNOW a lot of people are out of money because I can remember times when I lived paycheck to paycheck and one pay-period without a paycheck would've left me using or looking for credit.

And it has been many months now, for so many.

This cannot continue without a response.
Different people react in different ways to adversity and trauma.

#TrumpVirus will result in 'Fallout' and one can envision myriad scenarios how that will play out over time.

It doesn't take a genius or soothsayer to imagine varied reactions or have concerns re: same.
It is a given that those holding 'power' to affect #TrumpVirusFallout will be aware of, or made aware of, ramifications of the status quo and unfolding effects which remain to occur.

Denying awareness of 'intentions' is to deny reality and avoid personal responsibility to act.

Then Jesus..said: O unbelieving and perverse generation.. How long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

And Jesus rebuked him, and the devil went out of him, and the child was cured from that hour. (Mt17:14-20 #HolyMass #Aug8) ~ Douay Rheims #Bible #JesusChrist #Jesus Image
2. Then came the disciples to Jesus secretly, and said: Why could not we cast him out? Jesus said to them: Because of your unbelief. (Mt17:14-20) ~ Douay Rheims Bible
3. For, amen, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove from hence hither, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you. (Mt17:14-20)~ DouayRheims #Bible #BibleVerses #faith #MustardSeed #MoveMountains #Jesus

#BOOK: My #Money Grows on Trees: Sowing into Revelation and #Wealth by Zari Banks, M.Ed (2013)

Ch 1. Revelation: You get revelation when Holy Spirit breathes life into The Word, He speaks directly to your spirit or thru someone w/anointed understanding.

supernaturalyoubooks.info
Ch. 2 Submission and Obedience: You can't take the parts of The Bible you want to believe because they're comfortable, and ignore what's uncomfortable. Example, you don't get abundance without giving. You can't operate in Authority w/o submitting first to Jesus' Authority.
Ch. 3 Sowing into Revelation: You open a portal for receiving in your life by honoring Yahweh with various types of seed - money, time, service, study, prayer, love, etc. He multiplies every seed you sow for good or bad; you determine the seed.

Thanks to the 400+ 😳 #WGAwriters who virtually attended the staffing panel tonight! Had a great time gabbing w/ @WalkerTVWriter @davyperez @MaybeLaurenTy @glenisemullins & @capitalWLD & sharing my thoughts & advice. #TVstaffing is HARD, y’all. If I can do it, so can you! #faith
Answering more questions from the Q&A -

Q1: What are examples of questions you ask execs/showrunners during a staffing meeting?
A1: With execs, what they like about the show, where they hope it goes, changes they wanna see, etc. Remember any stories they tell about development.
A1(pt2): With showrunners, I’ll ask show questions & questions based on my exec meeting, but also what they expect of their writers, how they like to run their room, what they think the biggest challenge of breaking the series will be, etc. Make it clear I’m ready for that work!

PRAYER OF THANKS FOR GOD’S LOVE

1.Eternal Father,
we thank You for Your great love.
You give the world the best of Yourself,
the mirror of Your perfect transparency,
the splendour of Your very being-
Your Son Jesus.
#ThankYouThursday #ThankYou #God #OurFather #religion #faith

to His light
without fear of being overwhelmed
but exultant with the joy that comes from the light
upon all who accept it with gladness.

Hi God.
It's me. Kuno.
I know there's lots of going on in the world and you're hearing lots of complaints. Today I want to say Thank You.
1 year ago me n my mentordog Roxy were put in the bedroom and listened as strangers came and took our mistress away in an ambulance.
#faith
I didn't understand what was going on, I just knew it was bad. Mistress's daughter came and stayed with us a long time. Many many moons.
A few times she would take Roxy dog with her, and when they came home I could smell mistress on Roxy and took comfort knowing she was ok.
Finally, after 40 days, I got to go with Roxy and we waited in a courtyard at the hospital. I FINALLY got to see my person ❤!!! But things had changed. She couldn't stand up and come to me. She stayed in a funny chair and was missing most of her legs.

and esteem myself as lowly in Your sight.
