Hahahahaha people think Jesus did “magic”
No He did miracles….HE IS GOD.
it’s you witches that do “magic” by the power of Satan and your own evil will. 
Even if you think it’s for “good”….you are blind.
We Catholics do miracles by the power of God for His Glory alone.
Big difference.
Jesus is our King.
The God of wonders!

God, if you were true
Help me believe

Please help me to trust that
There is potential
in the innate kindness of people
that can outweigh our vices

Please help me on fanning out the mists of hollowness that surrounds planet earth
and let me see true beauty at its core

Please teach me how to
Surround hatred with joy
Let love cuddle all the wounds that have ever left on us

Please teach me how to
embrace angst and anxiety with understanding and acceptance

Please show me
how to shower forgiveness
like stardust all over the universe

and the way you plant forgiveness in bitter hearts
the way you plant trees on barren fields
roots anchored deeply in the soil

show me the road my footsteps shall reach
Be my compass
from districts to cities, cities to countries, countries to continents

Together, cross the bounds with me
from the realms of confusion and distress to the land of rejoice and truth

Deliver me
from the deserts struck by sandstorms

May your grace be like rain pouring down
seeping through the particles of sand
nourish this place of eternal drought
until water reaches the very base of it

Oh Lord, deliver me

From the holes in my heart
that were dug out of misery
Plant seedlings of faith in them
In prayers
the residue from the storm could nourish faith in the size of mustard seeds
To blossom into hope
harvest into love

Brush my hair
Detangle the knots on it
Count every piece
and tell me that you know me
You have known me all along

Above all, please change me
transform me
the way grapes are pressed into wine
fermentated in the dark, cold wooden cabin for decades

Its flavours fuller

Its colours richer

Filter me and my thoughts
the way grape skins are filtered
in the making of

a new spirit

Plenary Indulgences

Definition:An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints. (1983 Catechism ¶ 1471) 

The usual conditions to acquire a plenary indulgence are: 

  1. Detachment from sin; which is a true sorrow for, and repudiation of, all one’s sin, mortal and venial
  2. Reception of Holy Communion on the day the indulgence is sought
  3. Prayer for the intention of the Holy Father on the day the indulgence is sought (one Our Father and one Hail Mary suffice, or any other suitable prayer)
  4. Sacramental confession within a week of completion of the prescribed work. 

If these conditions are not met, the indulgence will be partial. 

Some examples of ways to gain a plenary indulgence: 

  1. January 1, Octave Day of Christmas, publicly saying or singing the Veni, Creator Spiritus 
  2. Every Friday in Lent, reciting the Prayer Before a Crucifix after Communion 
  3. Low Sunday (Divine Mercy Sunday), taking part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy, and in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, reciting the Our Father, the Creed, and a devout prayer to the Merciful Lord Jesus (e.g., Merciful Jesus, I trust in Thee!) 
  4. Pentecost Sunday, publicly saying or singing the Veni, Creator Spiritus 
  5. Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, saying the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus 
  6. August 2, Our Lady of the Angels, Portiuncula Indulgence, visiting a church, preferably Franciscan, and reciting an Our Father and Creed 
  7. Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, publicly saying the Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus 
  8. November 1-8, inclusive, visiting a cemetery and saying prayers, even if only mental, for the departed souls 
  9. November 2, All Souls’ Day, visiting a church and saying the Our Father and the Creed; applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory 
  10. December 31, publicly saying or singing the Te Deum in thanksgiving 

Matthew 5:13-15

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”
