Since we just celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, I’d like to share 10 quotes on the Eucharist.
During the Christmas season we celebrate the Incarnation: the fact that the Son of God assumed a human nature in order to accomplish our salvation in it (Catechism 461).
In honor of this season, I’d like to share 12 quotes.
In my previous post I listed the five newest saints of the Catholic Church.
These holy men and women, and all the saints, are meant to serve as models for us. They point to our Creator and our ultimate home: heaven.
In honor of the recent canonizations, I’d like to share 10 quotes on heaven.
(And at the end of the post, I have a request for you!)
From May to October 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children in Fátima, Portugal.
She appeared to Francisco and Jacinta Marto (now canonized saints) and Lúcia dos Santos on the thirteenth day of each month.
Mary referred to herself as “the Lady of the Rosary” and told the children to pray the Rosary every day for peace in the world.
She also told them to pray and sacrifice for sinners in order to save souls from going to hell.
Since we celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Fátima on May 13th, I want to share 13 quotes on the Rosary.
Saints are men and women whose souls have reached heaven.
The Catholic Church has a specific process for declaring men and women as saints and over 10,000 have been canonized!
There are also many holy men and women who have not been officially canonized.
Below is information about four saints with feast days in February: Blaise, Agatha, Amata, and Thalelaeus.
You may have heard of all, some or none of these saints.
Each has a unique story and personality, just like you and me. Each has something valuable to teach us about being a faithful disciple of Christ.
