2. Obtain for me the grace to hate sin with all my heart and to learn from you to live in perfect resignation to the Will of God.
3. Mary, I admire that deep humility which troubled your blessed Heart at the message of the Angel Gabriel when he announced that you had been chosen to be the Mother of the Son of the most high God. You considered yourself only God’s lowly handmaid.

4. Ashamed at the sight of my own pride, I beg of you the grace of a contrite and humble heart so that I may acknowledge my misery and reach the glory promised to the truly humble of heart.

5. Blessed Virgin, you kept in your Heart the precious treasure of the words of Jesus your Son and, pondering over the sublime mysteries they contained, you lived only for God. How ashamed I am of my coldness of heart!
6. Dear Mother, obtain for me the grace of meditating always on the holy law of God and of seeking to follow your example in the fervent practice of all Christian values.

7. Glorious Queen of Martyrs, during the Passion of your Son your holy Heart was cruelly pierced by the sword which had been foretold by the holy and aged Simeon.
8. Obtain for my heart true courage and holy patience to bear the sufferings and trials of this difficult life. May I prove to be your true child by crucifying my flesh and all its desires in the mortification of the Cross.
9. Mary, Mystical Rose, your amiable Heart, burning with the living fire of love, adopted us as your children at the foot of the Cross, and you thereby became our most tender Mother.
10. Let me feel the sweetness of your motherly Heart and the power of your intercession with Jesus, in all the dangers that I meet with during life, and especially at the hour of my death. May my heart be ever united to yours and love Jesus now and forever. Amen.

How a Girl Found Her Mother

🧵1. Jeanne Marie once heard a homily on the Holy Souls which made an indelible impression on her mind. The French...

2. servant girl was deeply moved by the thought of the sufferings the souls endure and horrified to see how cruelly they are neglected and forgotten by their friends on Earth.

Among other things the preacher stressed was that many souls who are in reality near to their release –
3. one Mass might suffice to set them free – are oftentimes long detained, it may be for years, just because the last needful suffrage has been withheld, or forgotten, or neglected!

Jeanne Marie resolved, that, cost what it may cost, she would have a Mass said to them, every

THE POLISH PRINCE (From "Read Me or Rue It")

🧵 1. A Polish Prince, who, for some political reason, had been exiled from his native country, bought a beautiful property in France.

Unfortunately he had lost the faith of his childhood and was at the time of the events
2. engaged in writing a book against God and the existence of a future life.

Strolling one evening in his garden he came across a poor woman weeping bitterly. He questioned her as to the cause of her grief.

“Ah! Prince,” she replied, “I am the wife of Jean Marie,
3. your former steward, who died two days ago. He was a good husband to me and a faithful servant to your Highness. His sickness was long and I spent all our savings on the doctors and now I have nothing left to get Masses said for his soul.”

The Prince, touched by her grief,

1. The beginning of true virtue is most ardently to desire it, and to ask it of God with the utmost assiduity and earnestness, and considering riches as nothing in comparison with this our only and inestimable treasure. Fervent prayer,
2. holy meditation, and reading pious books, are the principal means by which it is to be constantly improved, and the interior life of the soul to be strengthened. (From Fr Butler's Lives of the Saints)

Is it possible that so many Christians, capable of finding in God their sovereign felicity, should amuse themselves with pleasures which flatter the senses, with reading profane books, and seeking an empty satisfaction in idle visits,

1. It was the haphazard remark of a photographer, an agnostic I believe, that opened my eyes... it was to the effect

#CatholicEdChat #Jesus #Twitter #Bible #books #BookTwitter Image
2. that if Christianity were true, obviously the Roman Catholic Church, with her authority was right.

It was the testimony of a man who had no ax to grind. A Jewish dentist made the same remark in effect to me shortly afterwards. The man-in-the-street

3. testifies the same with his: ‘If I were religious, I’d be a Roman Catholic.’

Very little else is handed down to us about this saint, #StZaira
2. but making some reflections we can deduce some circumstances of her saintly life.

The name derives from the Arabic Zahirah and means "the rose" and often occurs in oriental literature, even in the form Zara.

In Spain, the occupation

During this ordeal, there were many Christian martyrs, who resisted the injunctions,
