5 Steps To Holiness – Advice From A Marian Blessed.

Pope St. John Paul II And St. Mother Theresa Of Kolkata


As committed Christians, how exactly do we live a holy life?

We may experience particular moments of grace, such as a deeper conversion to Christ or even a spiritual rebirth. But our growth in holiness is usually gradual.

The reality is that we have been wounded by sin, so it’s wise to cultivate spiritual practices that can help us respond to the action of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and in the circumstances of our everyday lives. Of course, we can learn much from the saints of the Church. The great apostle of Divine Mercy, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), for instance, wrote how God lives in the “pure and humble heart” and that “all sufferings and adversities serve but to reveal the soul’s holiness” (Diary of St. Faustina, 573). As we persevere through such guidance, our lives begin to bear fruit in the Spirit — that’s a guarantee!

Blessed George Matulaitis, the Renovator of the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, understood this well.

In one of the first entries in his spiritual diary, he writes: “We must perfect ourselves in the spiritual life by choosing those spiritual exercises which especially impel us toward conscious spiritual living … [and] we must try to help others achieve holiness, for by serving others, by contributing to their greater holiness, we grow holy and soar higher ourselves.”

His words have become the marching orders for Marian Helpers around the world.

Blessed George found the five following spiritual practices particularly helpful as steps to daily growth in holiness. And we can, too.

1. A Pure, Supernatural Intention



We should stop frequently in our daily life to remind ourselves that everything we think, say, and do should come from a desire to please God. It should become a habit with us, Blessed George says, to begin everything we do by stirring up our love for God.

This intention can be revitalized by recalling moments of grace in our lives. It might be a moment of conversion that came through the sacraments or circumstances in our lives. In strengthening his intention, Blessed George was fond of remembering how his own spiritual rebirth came through a bout with serious illness.

In 1904, at the age of 34, he lay near death in the charity ward of Transfiguration Hospital in Warsaw, Poland. In the midst of that crisis, he entered more fully into the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, as he experienced special grace from God and help from others while recovering.

Blessed George, in recalling that experience, would turn to these words of Jesus, his Lord, with deeper understanding: “Unless the grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat, but if it dies, it produces much fruit” (Jn 12:24).

2. Examen


This is the practice of reviewing each day at its close by prayerfully reflecting on everything that has happened. Our goal is to become sensitive to the moments of grace that God has provided during the day, and for these we give thanks. So, too, we try to discern the patterns of our resistance to grace and our sins. For these, we ask forgiveness and God’s help in changing sinful patterns in our lives.

As a priest and a religious, the examen was part of Blessed George’s daily life. For him, the practice of keeping a spiritual diary was a help. In reflecting on his day, he would ask himself, “Did I do everything for the glory of God and the salvation of souls?”

Many Christians today are finding it helpful to keep a daily or weekly prayer journal as a way of doing this kind of examen.

3. Meditation


By meditation, Blessed George meant choosing a passage from Scripture and spending time with it — opening our hearts to soak up its meaning. A particular verse of Scripture may touch us and move us into the quiet of God’s presence. We may also spend part of our meditation time fighting distractions.

But Blessed George understood that it was worth the struggle as a way of shaping the heart to ready it for deeper prayer. Like the Apostle Paul, he found meditating on Scripture effective in identifying with Jesus Christ as his Lord. Thus, he could say with Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal 2:20).



With today’s hectic pace, many Christians are rediscovering the value of daily meditation as a way of centering their lives on Christ. It might mean taking 15 minutes or more of quiet, undisturbed time every day to meditate on a verse of Scripture.

4. Spiritual Reading


This kind of reading refers to works on the spiritual life other than Scripture itself. These might be classical spiritual texts by the Doctors of the Church, the writings of the Popes, and even books by good contemporary writers.

As a professor and a bishop, Blessed George was steeped in spiritual reading of all sorts. But he preferred the spiritual classics, papal documents, and sound spiritual writers on topics of the day.

In our own time, there has been a resurgence of interest among Catholics in the spiritual classics, such as The Imitation of Christ by Thomas Á Kempis, which was a favorite of Blessed George. The Catechism of the Catholic Church has also sparked a renewed interest in the teachings of the faith.

5. Confession and Spiritual Direction.


Blessed George recommends “a good and conscientious confession, made at least once a month with sincerity and open-heartedness.” Regular meetings with a good spiritual director can also guide us in detecting the movement of God’s Spirit in our lives and then in discerning the best course of response, he pointed out. With the right confessor, it is often possible to combine confession and spiritual direction.

As a seminarian, Blessed George found in the Capuchin priest Honorat Kozminski both a good confessor and spiritual director who planted in him the seeds of his call to renovate and found religious communities later in life. In the confessional, Fr. Honorat — who has also been declared blessed — saw in the young George Matulaitis a man with considerable pastoral gifts who could carry on his own work of establishing and directing religious communities.

For when George was in seminary in the 1890s, Fr. Honorat was responsible for 18 religious communities, and he was sorely in need of help. Czarist Russia had occupied Poland and Lithuania, intent on destroying the Catholic Church, especially its religious communities. So Fr. Honorat — whose movements were restricted — used the privacy of the confessional to enlist the seminarian’s help in secretly directing his communities.

Like Blessed George, many Catholics today are finding that sound spiritual direction can help them discern their gifts and calling in life.

Through persevering in these spiritual practices, Blessed George was drawn more deeply to Christ and found his life bearing abundant fruit as he “soared higher” in the Spirit. Those fruits included the renovation of the Marians who now serve in 19 countries around the world.

Was The darkness At The Crucifixion Of Jesus A Solar Eclipse?

Was the darkness at the crucifixion a solar eclipse?




In August millions in the US may experience a darkness similar to what was seen 2,000 years ago.
According to ABC News, “this August, the U.S. will experience its first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years.” This type of solar eclipse occurs “when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, and scores a bull’s eye by completely blotting out the sunlight … In this case, the total eclipse will last up to 2 minutes and 40 seconds in places.” Those in the “path of totality” will experience complete darkness in the middle of the day.

The experience will certainly be unique and won’t happen again for many more years. It brings to mind the Gospel accounts of the crucifixion, which describe a total darkness similar to what many will experience in August:

    It was now about noon and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon because of an eclipse of the sun. Then the veil of the temple was torn down the middle. (Luke 23:44-45 NAB-RE).

However, many biblical scholars point out that to say the darkness was due to “an eclipse of the sun” is not entirely accurate. The Greek text is more properly translated, “there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed” (Luke 23:44-45 RSV-CE).
Other scholars prefer the translation that states more simply, “the sun was darkened” (Douay-Rheims).




What was it then? How was the “sun darkened” on Good Friday?




Some theologians believe that Jesus died on April 3, 33. This corresponds to historical data that a lunar eclipse (not a solar one) occurred on that day. According to the Star of Bethlehem website, “only one Passover lunar eclipse was visible from Jerusalem while Pilate was in office. It occurred on April 3, 33 AD.”




Furthermore, “When the moon rose that evening, it was blood red … Kepler’s equations indicate that the moon rose already in eclipse, already bloody [It receives no direct light from the sun, but is lit only by the dim light refracted and reddened by the Earth’s atmosphere.] … Necessarily, this means that the eclipse commenced before moonrise. With software we can look below the horizon and see Earth’s shadow begin the eclipse. When we do, we find that at 3 PM, as Jesus was breathing his last on the cross, the moon was going to blood.”
In the Acts of the Apostles Peter referred to a prophecy in the book of Joel which seems to confirm this phenomenon, “the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood” (Acts 2:20).




The cause of the sun failing for three hours is still a bit of a mystery to science and was probably a miraculous act of God. This would explain why there are no other accounts of a darkness falling over the sky as it was only visible in Jerusalem.

Whatever the case was, if you want to have a similar experience of the sky as on Good Friday, check out the “path of totality” and witness “darkness cover over the whole land” this August.

Why Do Priest And Deacons Wear Stole?  

A cross section of Priest with green coloured stole above their necks.


​Why do priests (and deacons) wear a stole?

The small piece of fabric is one of the most important vestments worn by ordained clergy.

One of the most significant vestments a member of the ordained clergy wears is a simple strip of material called a stole.

The Vatican’s Office of Liturgical Celebrations explains, “The stole is the distinctive element of the raiment of the ordained minister and it is always worn in the celebration of the sacraments and sacramentals. It is a strip of material that is embroidered, according to the norm, whose color varies with respect to the liturgical season or feast day.”

The word “stole” comes from the Latin stola, or “garment.” It was an ancient Roman scarf-like garment that was used to denote members of the imperial hierarchy and was restricted to a specific class of individuals.

The word stola is also used in the Latin Vulgate on certain occasions. For example, it is found in the following passage from Luke 15:22 regarding the garment to be worn by the Prodigal Son, “dixit autem pater ad servos suos cito proferte stolam primam et induite illum et date anulum in manum eius et calciamenta in pedes” (“And the father said to his servants: Bring forth quickly the first robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet”).




Sometimes it is connected to the “yoke of Christ,” but that designation is now associated with the chasuble.

Currently the stole is referred to as the “stole of immortality,” as the following prayer indicates:

    Redde mihi, Domine, stolam immortalitatis, quam perdidi in praevaricatione primi parentis; et, quamvis indignus accedo ad tuum sacrum mysterium, merear tamen gaudium sempiternum.




    (Lord, restore the stole of immortality, which I lost through the collusion of our first parents, and, unworthy as I am to approach Thy sacred mysteries, may I yet gain eternal joy).




It is a vestment that identifies members of the ordained clergy and is worn by priests, deacons, bishops and Popes.

A Prayer For Divine Mercy 

By St. Faustina Kowalska

O greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness,

today all makind calls out from the abyss

of its misery to Your mercy—to Your compassion,

O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out.

Gracious God do not reject the prayer of this earth’s exiles!

O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding,

Who are acquainted with our misery through and through,

and know that by our own power

we cannot ascend to You,

we implore You; anticipate us with Your Grace

and keep on increasing Your mercy in us,

that we may faithfully do Your holy will

all through our life and at death’s hour.

Let the omnipotence of Your mercy

shield us from the darts of our salvation’s enemies,

that we may with confidence,

as Your children await Your final coming

– that day known to You alone.

And we expect to obtain everything promised us

by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness.

For Jesus is our Hope:

Through His merciful Heart

as through an open gate we pass through to heaven.

(Diary of St. Faustina 1570)

Why Does The Blessed Virgin Mary Always Wear Blue?

The Blessed Virgin Mary In A Blue Mantle.

​The color has multiple spiritual meanings, each revealing a different attribute of the Mother of God.
When viewing Christian art from the past thousand years or so, there is one color that is almost always associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary: blue.




Why is that? What significance does it have?
To start off, the color blue has deep biblical roots in the Old Testament. According to Dr. R. Jared Staudt, the color is specifically mentioned as the color of the people of Israel in the book of Numbers.
    Speak to the people of Israel, and bid them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put upon the tassel of each corner a cord of blue; and it shall be to you a tassel to look upon and remember all the commandments of the Lord, to do them, not to follow after your own heart and your own eyes, which you are inclined to go after wantonly. (Numbers 15:38-39)

What Do Catholics Mean When We Call Mary “Ever Virgin”?

We as Catholics firmly believe that Mary is “ever virgin.” The Catechism asserts, “The deepening of faith in the virginal motherhood led the Church to confess Mary’s real and perpetual virginity even in the act of giving birth to the Son of God made man” (#499). Given this teaching, the perpetual virginity of Mary has traditionally been defended and examined in three parts: Mary’s conception of Christ (virginitas ante partum); her giving birth to Christ (virginitas in partu); and her remaining a virgin after the birth of Christ (virginitas post partum). This formulation was used by many of the early Church Fathers– St. Augustine, St. Peter Chrysologus, Pope St. Leo the Great, St. Gregory Nazianzus, and St. Gregory Nyssa. For example, the Catechism quotes St. Augustine’s elaboration: Mary “remained a virgin in conceiving her Son, a virgin in giving birth to Him, a virgin in carrying Him, a virgin in nursing Him at her breast, always a virgin” (#510).

These Priests Have Made a Pact With Satan To Kill Pope Francis: Vatican Investigating Occultism

As As reported by Catholic Online  ​the Vatican is investigating the Heralds of the Gospel, which some say participates in cult practices and has made a pact with Satan. The investigation is being led by the Vatican Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life.
The organization was founded in 1995 following the death of Plinio Correa de Oliveria (Dr. Plinio), founder of the Tradition, Family and Property Association. Dr. Plinio was an intellectual, ultra-conservative Catholic who went so far as to protest the opening of the Second Vatican Council.

The organization he founded split into two groups. One group remains faithful to the original mission of the organization, but the second group, known as the Heralds of the Gospel, seems ot have taken a more dramatic path.

These Nuns Have Spent 140 Years Adoring Jesus In The Blessed Sacrament Non Stop

It’s almost 140 years and these Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration have been adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament non stop.

The group dates back to 1849 when a small band of women from Bavaria started the Sisters of St. Francis in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with the purpose of spreading the Gospel among German immigrants. In 1856, they started helping at a local seminary, but the work quickly became too demanding. With too much to do and unable to live a proper religious prayer life, some of the community’s founders left.

The remaining women decided to refocus their mission and moved their convent to Jefferson, WI in 1864. Then, in 1871, they moved again to the newly formed Diocese of La Crosse, WI. But they were still searching for their purpose.

Spanish Catholics Stage ‘Prayer Protest’ After Muslim Mass Prayer At Christian Landmark

Catholics in the Spanish city of Granada struck back at what they described as a “provocative” decision to stage a Ramadan fast-breaking in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary, by arranging a mass public prayer at the same spot.

“We are here because we can’t allow that to happen. They can’t do it in Granada. They can do so in their place, but not in the Jardines del Triunfo that has been ours for so long,” a Catholic at the event told RT’s Ruptly video agency.

The present-day Jardines del Triunfo started off as 13th century Islamic cemetery during the Muslim occupation of Spain, but is now dominated by a 17th century statue of the Immaculate Conception, located atop a towering pillar.

What Is A Monstrance?

Host Enclosed In A Monstrance.

What is a monstrance?Connected to Eucharistic adoration, the liturgical vessel is traced back to the Middle Ages.

Expressions of faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist have developed over time. One such development was the introduction of Eucharistic adoration outside of Mass and outside of the tabernacle. To facilitate this new devotion, a liturgical vessel called a “monstrance” was invented.

Monstrance comes from the Latin word monstrare, meaning “to show.” The purpose of the monstrance is to put on display a consecrated Host for those present to adore and venerate. The development of the monstrance can be traced back to the 13th century, when Eucharistic processions rose in popularity connected to the new feast of Corpus Christi.

Eucharistic Challenges! Homily For Corpus Christi, 2017 By Rev. Fr. Emma. N. Asogwa

INTRODUCTION: 

Permit me today to glide over the normal salivating eucharistic theologies (which abound in the sequence of today) that should normally ornament a homily of today’s sort and to focus immediately on the Challenges which a celebration like today’s naturally evoke.

This is because it would not be possible for us today, within the margined confines of our space and time, to accommodate all that could be said about the Eucharist.

Secondly, in talking about the challenges, we would have the leverage to reflect shortly on the theological background behind each eucharistic challenge. Hence our Theme! These challenges are hereby highlighted as appreciation, utilization, preparation/purification, imitation and communion!

Story Of The Astronaut Who Took The Holy Eucharist To Space

* He was a Convert to Catholicism

Mike Hopkins was raised in a Protestant family, but married a Catholic woman. Though they were raising their two daughters as Catholics, he wasn’t sure it was for him right away, until he said he “felt that something was missing in my life.”

After a period of discernment, he eventually joined RCIA and was received into full communion in the Catholic Church. But that raised a question for him when he was sent to the International Space Station as an astronaut in 2013 for 24 weeks: how would he receive the Sacraments?
He couldn’t celebrate Mass or do Reconciliation without a priest. But he would be able to receive the Eucharist if he took consecrated host with him to space.

​Catholic Worship is Dull! By Fr. Michael Numbe

Points you may take note of:

1. Authentic Catholics know that it is SOLEMN rather than dull. They love it so

2. Worship is not for ENTERTAINMENT. During worship humanity gives God his due and then ask Him for its needs. There are very many places that offer fun and entertainment. The Church cannot compete with them! 

3. Real worship MUST GIVE YOU A DIFFERENT FEELING from all other experiences. You are not supposed to feel the same way you feel at a birthday party, night club, office, beer parlour, motor park, home, school etc. Worshipping is a SACRED ACTIVITY.

Jesus, Your Sacred Heart is burning with love for me. I know that you love all of us so much. How often have we hurt You by our sin. How often have I put thorns into Your Holy Heart, by my sin. I am sorry O Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I shall never be able to thank you enough for loving me so much. I offer my love in return and hope that your Holy Hearts will find some joy in my poor unworthy heart. AMEN

(See Video) Blessed Virgin Mary Appears In Knock Ireland on 10th June 2017

According to Catholic.org, the footage is emotional and difficult to believe, but it is genuine and verified by the cameras of hundreds of other eyewitnesses. A crowd of people gathered in Knock, Ireland at 3 PM, June 10, saw a promised vision of the Virgin Mary in the sky.

The sun appeared as an elongated shape in the videos, not as a circle. Rays of light were also captured on camera. As clouds passed before the sun, filtering out the brightest light, people were able to look directly at the vision. They reported the vision moved, and spun, a classic miracle of the sun, often associated with apparitions of the Virgin Mary.

The sight alone is moving and astounding. There is no evidence on video that is so clearly genuine or so remarkable. But what makes this apparition even more compelling is that it was predicted by a 14-year-old boy.

Italian Priest Commits Suicide; Claims To Have Seen The Devil Twice

​This happened last Friday and the priest in questions belongs to a religious community in the centre of Genoa, Italy. Though we do not have all the information as at writting, but the priest is said to have seen the devil twice according to the suicide note he left behind. 

After having celebrated Mass he closed himself into the library of the Institute, where he was based, and hanged himself. His corps was not found until the evening. 

The priest left a note in his bedroom indicating psychological problems, “I apologise to everyone. But I’ve seen the Devil twice. That’s why I can not continue anymore.” 

The priest was very active and did not show any signs, which would have allowed anticipating his act.
