CFC-YFL Promotional Package. Intermediate Layout class. Objective: Find an organization or make one up, design/redesign the logo, and create a promotional system. I’m really glad we didn’t have to make an actual website or phone app. Overall, I’m satisfied with what I ended up with after four weeks. I’ll probably go back and tweak the website and poster before my review in December, but for now, I’m just really exhausted. Yuhh!

A response to the video “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus”. The purpose of this video is to do a response from a Catholic perspective, in a spirit of love, but also with a spirit of passion to defend our Mother the Church. The things that are said are not meant to offend, but we do have to be direct about what we believe and what we stand for.Lyrics:

What if I told you that Jesus loves religion
And that by his coming as man he brought his religion to fruition
See this had to be addressed, the use of illogical terms and definitions
You clearly have a heart for Jesus but its fueling atheistic opinions
See what makes his religion great is not errors of wars and inquisitions
It’s that broken men and women to participate in his mission
Clearly Jesus says I have not come to abolish
I came to fulfill the law and I came to fulfill the prophets (Matthew 5:17)
And lines about building big churches and tending to the poor
Sounds a bit like Judas when the perfume was being poured (John 12:5)
See His religion is the largest worldwide source of relief
For the poor, the hungry, the sick and repentant thief
Oceans of compassion, opening wide the doors
For single mothers, widows and orphans, married and divorced (James 1:27)
We all detest hypocrisy, and empty show is just the worst
But blaming religion for contradiction
Is like staring at death, and blaming the hearse.
See the teacher will teach when the students are ready to listen
But those that choose to sit in the pews and refuse the good news
Is not the fault of religion. 
And If I have the Jersey and I’m playing for the Bulls
There’s going to be some boundaries, regulations and some rules.
You can’t have Christ without his Church; you can’t have the King without his Kingdom
Sins of the Body and internal treason will never ever make me leave him
And that Jesus said it is done, is absolutely true
But he also gave us a mission with many things to DO.
Jesus says if you love me, you will Do what I command. (JN 15:14)
Go and Baptize in the name of the Father, Son & Spirit in Every Land. (MT28:19)
And on the night he was betrayed he took his men in the Upper Room
Take at eat this is my body take and drink my blood for you.
A New covenant you see, an act connected to the tree,
Do this time and time again in Memory of Me. (Mt 26:26-28)
And at last with crown of thorns beaten beyond comprehension
His eyes were looking for yours and mine; it was divine, no human invention.
So as for religion I love it, I have one because Jesus rose from the dead and won.
I believe When Jesus said IT IS FINISHED, His religion had just begun.

Gone like a bar of soap

"gone like a bar of soap" 

So The other day at mass, the priest was giving this homily. What he talked about was a bar of soap and the saying “he went like a bar of soap”. When he first said anything I was really confused…I wondered what did a bar of soap have to do with saints and religion? But what he said was really good. So hear this out. 

Its a story of a man who lived his life to serve God. He did everything quietly and no one really knew about him. He did not take credit for anything that he had done. He was almost invisible. Then one day he died. After dying someone had said “He went like a bar of soap”. The reason why they said that was because we never really notice bars of soap. They are just there to clean our hands when they are dirty. We do not even realize how small they get after a while or how quickly they disappear. It is not until they are almost gone do we realize it. Well this man was like a bar of soap because no one noticed him, but everyday he would clean the world by doing something, helping out others, participating in the church etc. It was not until the world started getting dirty again that people ever realized anything. 

Brothers and sisters, what I got from this, is that we are each called to be a bar of soap. Living our lives to cleanse the world. If each and every one of us acted as a bar of soap just imagine how clean this world would be.

YFL CONFERENCE 2012! CHOOSE LIFE!

"From the moment we were cast into this transient life, we have been called to stand. Jesus himself has said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Unfortunately, we’ve been taught to enter this never-ending cycle in which we tune out God and tune in the world around us. This world that never ceases to stop once to let us breathe for a moment or two.

In this world that is constantly migrating, it’s normal to feel so minuscule. We lose sight of our true calling because of what the this secular life constantly throws at us. A chaotic life that carves into our brains and tells us that we’re worthless. But the truth is, God sent us on a mission; a mission that only we ourselves can fufill. 
And through this mission, we learn our purpose. We learn what God has called us on earth to do; To live, to love, and to know Him.”

Join us for an unforgettable weekend and learn the true meaning of Choosing Life.
