  • As Lent begins we take a moment to reflect with contrition and resolve:

St. Jude, help calm the distractions of our day-to-day life as we prepare to focus even more on our faith during Lent. St. Jude, pray for us.

  • “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” .
.
I may have started my year with taking time for myself but as we begin this Lent season it’s more than just health. It’s a time of repentance and growth in my faith. It’s about taking the time to reflect where I am, where I want to be and how to get there by filling myself with the unconditional love God has for us all. .

  • “Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in púlverem reverteris.” [“Remember, man, that thou art dust, and into dust thou shalt return.”]
(Genesis 3:19)
————————————————————————
Blessed Ash Wednesday to all Catholics as today we begin the Season of Lent, let us continue to be repentant of our sins and be strong against the temptations of the devil just as our Lord Jesus Christ was when he roamed through the desert while being tempted by the devil himself. Let us also always continue to bear in mind that we were made from dust and unto dust we shall return unto our Creator, who shall judge both the living and the dead at the End of time.

  • Lent (the word "Lent" comes from the Old English "lencten," meaning "springtime) lasts from Ash Wednesday to the Vespers of Holy Saturday -- forty days + six Sundays which don't count as "Lent" liturgically. The Latin name for Lent, Quadragesima, means forty and refers to the forty days Christ spent in the desert which is the origin of the Season.The last two weeks of Lent are known as "Passiontide," made up of Passion Week and Holy Week. The last three days of Holy Week -- Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday -- are known as the "Sacred Triduum." The focus of this Season is the Cross and penance, penance, penance as we imitate Christ's forty days of fasting, like Moses and Elias before Him, and await the triumph of Easter. We fast, abstain, mortify the flesh, give alms, and think more of charitable works. Awakening each morning with the thought, "How might I make amends for my sins? How can I serve God in a reparative way? How can I serve others today?" is the attitude to have. 
We meditate on "The Four Last Things": Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell, and we also practice mortifications by "giving up something" that would be a sacrifice to do without. The sacrifice could be anything from desserts to television to the marital embrace, and it can entail, too, taking on something unpleasant that we'd normally avoid, for example, going out of one's way to do another's chores, performing "random acts of kindness," etc. A practice that might help some, especially small children, to think sacrificially is to make use of "Sacrifice Beads" in the same way that St. Thérèse of Lisieux did as a child.

Because of the focus on penance and reparation, it is traditional to make sure we go to Confession at least once during this Season to fulfill the precept of the Church that we go to Confession at least once a year, and receive the Eucharist at least once a year during Eastertide. A beautiful old custom associated with Lenten Confession is to, before going to see the priest, bow before each member of your household and to any you've sinned against, and say, "In the Name of Christ, forgive me if I've offended you."

  • Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Over the next 40 days, we are called to undertake a journey of spiritual purification. ⁣
⁣
We are called to pray, fast and give. ⁣
⁣
Our prayer is a means to communicate with God on a deeper level, not just speaking, but listening, hearing, understanding and responding. ⁣
⁣
We fast in order to reduce the static that is the constant satisfaction we receive from the things that sate us. When we reduce our dependence on these outward things, we can increase our reliance on God, and the absolute joy that is a life in union with Him. ⁣
⁣
And we must give. ⁣
We seek satisfaction from the world, and it results in us wanting more and more. We need to detach ourselves from the things that distract us from God, and giving --instead of holding onto things-- is one of the surest ways to achieve that.⁣
⁣
So, what are you giving up this Lent?

  • ✝️ASH WEDNESDAY✝️ LENT (Latin: Quadragesima, lit. 'fortieth') is a solemn Religious observance in the Catholic/Christian Liturgical Calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends approximately six weeks (40 days) later on Holy Thursday, the memorial of the Lord's Last Supper the Thursday of Holy Week before Easter Sunday. "In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.” ~Genesis 3:19~
New King James Bible “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” ~Ecclesiastes 12:7~

As you recieve the ashes (from last years Palms, from Palm Sunday) in Church, in the shape of the Cross on your forehead, the Priest stated, "You are dust and to dust you shall return." You confirm by answering, "AMEN." Blessed Ash Wednesday to all. . . ✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜✝️💜 #AshWednesday

  • Giving props to the EO though. They’re the second largest CHURCH. Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy are CHURCHES. Protestantism is a sect that contains literally thousands of denominations all varying in beliefs and traditions. These are the numbers of followers.
Catholic: 1.3 Billion, EO: 270 million, Anglican: 110 million, baptists: 100 million, Lutherans 90 million, and so on. 
Also, 35 million nontrinitarians (they’re not Christians but identify as Christ’s true churches) 🙄 .

  • It's that time of year again; time to give something up!  Might we suggest giving up lent?
Where did lent come from? There’s no lent in the Bible, none. It never appears in the Bible; not one single solitary reference. It has nothing to do with the resurrection of Christ. 
But in ancient paganism, in the instructions of Baal, and Ashteroth, and the deities of the ancients, it was believed that Tammuz (or Baal)  was killed by a wild boar. And after he was killed by a wild boar, his mother, Semiramis, the high priestess of Babylonian #paganism, mourned for him, and cried for him for 40 days. 
At the end of those 40 days, he was resurrected from the dead. The whole concept of the 40-day mourning, going without, and fasting, has absolutely nothing to do with the resurrection of Christ, but was an imposition on Christianity from the pagan mystery religions of Babylon.

  • Support us, Lord, as with this Lenten fast, we begin our Christian warfare, so that in doing battle against the spirit of evil we may be armed with the weapon of self-denial. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. . “The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.” -Saint Padre Pio 🛡⚔️

Please pray the rosary for the holiest Lent ever! ✝️

  • It is said that Ash Wednesday is the one day you can tell who is Catholic because they’re walking around with ashes on their foreheads. The ashes serve as a reminder of our sinfulness and mortality and provide a perfect beginning to the Lenten season. The next forty days will be a journey of reflection on our faith in light of Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection. On this journey, we will be accompanied by St. Pio of Pietrelcina, more commonly known as Padre Pio. This humble Capuchin friar embodied the true spirit of walking with Christ throughout his life. Praying with Padre Pio St. Pio, as we begin our Lenten journey, help us to die to ourselves and open our hearts to Christ in the same way that you did. Be our companion and guide us where we need to go.

I am ready to start Lent today. I have a feeling it is going to be an interesting ride. One way or another, I think God has big plans for me this Lent. In our family we focus on several areas of our life. We all set an exercise goal, a food sacrifice, an area we need more discipline, and a prayer plan. I am exercising 45 minutes a day, eating low carb, no angry yelling (we are loud), and I am excited to reread the Memento Mori Devotional. I will be praying for all of you during Lent. 💀☠

  • This is the first portion of a Responsorial Antiphon sung during the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday. "Let us amend and do better for those things in which we have sinned through ignorance; lest suddenly overtaken by the day of death, we seek time for repentance, and be not able to find it." "Emendémus in mélius, quae ignoránter peccávimus: ne súbito praeoccupáti díe mórtis, quaerámus spátium paeniténtiae, et inveníre non possímus." #ashwednesday #ashes #catholic #romancatholic #lent #imposition #palmbranches #gregorianchant #liturgicalmusic #liturgy

  • Why do people party on Mardi Gras? It is a Christian holiday that dates back thousands of years. Mostly prevalent in Catholic populations, this is the day before the religious season of Lent begins. We eat and drink to "fatten ourselves" up before Lent, which is why the day is called Fat Tuesday.⁣
⁣
Lent // Springtime is also my FAVORITE time to be in New Orleans. I am not sure why that is. Maybe it is because of all the festivals we have, the flowers blooming and well it is CRAWFISH season.

  • “The ashes mean that I am a sinner. But the Cross means that I have a Savior. The ashes mean that I am not who I should be. But the Cross means that there is a God who believes so fully in me that He is making me right now into the person that He believes that I can be.” - Fr. Mike Schmitz⠀

  • God loves you. Far more than anyone else could ever love you. He confessed His love when He took the form of Jesus Christ, His Only Son, and took our place on the Cross. He showed us the depths of His love when He Sacrificed Himself to save us from sin and death and reunite us with Himself.

Don’t let the world tell you that God has abandoned you. Don’t let them tell you that Christ does not love you. Don’t let your problems define how much God desires to bring you home. Don’t let the Devil tell you that you are unworthy of His love and beyond salvation.

If you have been running from God and cursing yourself, then now is the time to change that. This season is the time to return to Him. It is time to tell Him how sorry you are for hurting Him and the people in your life. It is time to tell Him how much you want to be reconciled with Him.

Come home, my friends. Contemplate on your sins and count your blessings. Confess your transgressions to God. Make reparations for the damages your sins may have caused.

Christ is waiting for you. He is kind. He is loving. He is patient. He is merciful.

Ash Wednesday is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar. Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer.⁠
⁠
Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, although many other Christians observe it too.⁠
⁠
Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. As the priest applies the ashes to a person's forehead, he speaks the words: "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."⁠
⁠
Alternatively, the priest may speak the words, "Repent and believe in the Gospel."⁠
⁠
Ashes also symbolize grief, in this case, grief that we have sinned and caused division from God.⁠
⁠
Writings from the Second-century Church refer to the wearing of ashes as a sign of penance.⁠
⁠
Priests administer ashes during Mass and all are invited to accept the ashes as a visible symbol of penance. Even non-Christians and the excommunicated are welcome to receive the ashes. The ashes are made from blessed palm branches, taken from the previous year's palm Sunday Mass.⁠

  • 📌Hoy iniciamos la #Cuaresma con el #MiércolesDeCeniza.
.
✝️El Miércoles de Ceniza está muy unido con la penitencia, que se expresaba entre los hebreos cubriéndose la cabeza de ceniza y vistiéndose de aquel áspero paño llamado cilicio.
He aquí por qué Tertuliano, san Cipriano, san Ambrosio, san Jerónimo y otros Padres y escritores cristianos antiguos aluden frecuentemente a la penitencia in cinere et cilicio.
Y la Iglesia, cuando en los siglos V y VI organizó la “penitencia pública”, escogió la ceniza y el saco para señalar el castigo de aquellos que habían cometido pecados graves y notorios.
El período de esa penitencia canónica comenzaba precisamente en este día y duraba hasta el Jueves Santo.
En la Roma del siglo VII, los penitentes se presentaban a los presbíteros, hacían la confesión de sus culpas y, si era del caso,  recibían un vestido de cilicio impregnado de ceniza, quedando excluidos de la iglesia, con la prescripción de retirarse a alguna abadía para cumplir la penitencia impuesta en aquella Cuaresma.
En otras partes, los penitentes  públicos  cumplían su pena privadamente, es decir, en su propia casa.
Era general la costumbre de comenzar la Cuaresma con la confesión, no sólo para purificar el alma, sino también para recibir más frecuentemente la Comunión.
El primer formulario de bendición de cenizas data del siglo XI. El rito de imponer cenizas sobre la cabeza de los penitentes, gesto de gran carga simbólica, se extendió rápidamente por Europa.
.
▪️El Miércoles de Ceniza da inicio a la Cuaresma.
▪️Las cenizas están hechas con las palmas del Domingo de Ramos del año anterior.
▪️Las cenizas pueden ser recibidas por no católicos.
▪️El miércoles de ceniza no es día de precepto.
▪️Es día de ayuno y abstinencia.

  • A little 8-minute Divine Mercy chaplet in the car really changed my whole outlook for the day.
.
"Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" //1 Corinthians 3:16
If the Lord truly resides in our hearts and souls, should we not keep that space pure and holy? You may have heard the phrase, "a prayer a day keeps the devil away," but I say to you: instead of avoiding Hell, let's strive for Heaven. The difference is our mindset of "oh no, I better go to confession before I die," changing to "I want to go to confession so I can better serve my Lord with a clean heart." It goes from praying because you "have to," to making every moment of your life a living devotion to Him. Instead of fearing the devil (fear is not of God, anyways, and comes from the Evil One himself), let's have confidence in our God (who created the entire universe!!) and have faith that He probably knows what He's doing.
.
Mama Mary, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

  • Last night I had the privilege to attend the kickoff vigil for the 40 Days For Life campaign in NYC outside of the Planned Parenthood in downtown Manhattan. .
.
First of all I was so struck by the witness of so many faithful Catholics who prayed the Rosary with such devotion and love for Our Blessed Mother as well as love for those babies who need a voice to speak for them and for the woman who are struggling with so much pain and suffering. .
.
Even though it was evening we were still met with resistance. A man mocked the Blessed Virgin, mocked the Hail Mary. Others laughed and filmed us, no doubt to Snapchat it to their friends to call us pathetic losers. A man that worked there, came out of the Planned Parenthood and began frantically pacing and filming. He didn’t seem to know what to do. And so on... .
.
But what was very clear to me is that these people are all wounded themselves. Their behavior wasn’t that of championing a great cause of “rights”, it was a lashing back because of what is missing in their hearts. When you believe in nothing, you’ll believe in anything. So remember to pray for those that mock us as well. When praying the Rosary there is a chance that God will work out a signal grace in you that they may see and then soften their hearts. .
.
Lent begins tomorrow and I ask that you all consider taking up a more public cause (something I shied away from for years), a public witness of your Faith, whether it be the pro life cause or similar. Pray the Rosary in public like we did yesterday. If you pray it you bring the Mother of all mothers to a place where babies are left motherless. Let her power be brought and made present there. Because here’s the inside scoop: She wins. She wins this in the end. Be on the side of love. Be on the side of life. .
.
God love you!

  • The first time I met Pope Francis, I thanked him for his contagious joy and for speaking often of his personal relationship with Christ.  Then, I broke all protocol and asked him for a hug.  I thought it fitting to share this photo on the feast of the Chair of St. Peter, when we recognize St. Peter’s unique roll among the 12 apostles and how Christ works through him in a particular way among his apostles.

  • “You really think that I would fail you?”
•
Hi it’s me, the former president of the “stereotypical Catholic trying to earn his/her way to salvation” club. Not exactly a title you want to campaign for, right? But the ballot box doesn’t lie.
•
What I’ve found is that the acceptance of a personal reality is the first step in reordering the disordered. And there’s something else.
•
This boss babe, winners win, “do something about it” culture in which we’re living (suffocating?), isn’t the cream we want to be putting in our coffee when it comes to the spiritual life. I’d much rather live peacefully under the shade of the “surrender about it” banner. Because I’ve been on the flip side of surrender and it looks like a white-knuckled grasp of good intentions with bad end results and a reeling mind and spirit.
•
We can be running the race, and by outward appearances look holy, but if our feet are propelled by some kind of “I’ll just get it (salvation) done myself” unsustainable 5-hour energy drink instead of love, then we’re veering off track and may not even see it. •
A “what now?” led me to where I am. As a Type A, organized to a fault kind of person, the thought of surrendering wasn’t usually found in my upper cortex. You’d have to look around awhile. But contrary to popular belief, there is little honor in that. •
As we gear up for Lent, let’s gear up with surrender. With love. Abandonment to the Divine Will. To goodness and trust and a spirit of simplicity. Let’s chase virtue and darn it, be *brave* about it. Learn to love and not keep a tally. To not be afraid of empty hands and want, since those are exactly the means through which providence likes to enter. •

Because as we peer out into the desert we’re about to traverse for 40 days, He’s here beside us whispering, “You really think that I would fail you?”
