Soldiers of Christ

As you may recall, last year, I wrote a post titled: “My experience at Mount 2008” In it a mentioned I Todd Lemieux’s talk about us as Catholics. I mentioned that he showed us a clip from “We were Soldiers” I am presenting that clip to you now.

We are all soldiers of Christ. We all must watch each others backs in the battle against sin. We must pray for each others strength. We must pray that each one of us will turn to God, our armies leader, in time of need.  We fight for God. We fight for the gifts he has given us. God presented us freedom from the chains of sin through confession. We must embrace our duties, as solders of Christ. No matter who we are, God is there, watching after us. He was the first to step onto the battle field, and, I promise you, He will be the last to step off…




Sand and Stone

Here is a story I found online. I was musing around and happened upon it. It is a inspiring story.  It brings to mind God’s forgiveness, our sins are gone with the wind, considering we are sorry. And our good deeds carved in stone, with grace and roses in heaven.  We slap God in the face everyday, and he writes it in sand, where he may wipe away and forget it in confession, and he writes in stone the good deeds that we do for him! Original sin is blown away from our souls at baptism… and God’s love for us is carved in stone by his death and resurrection!

Sand and Stone!

A story tells of two friends who were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, she wrote in the sand:


They kept on walking, until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but her friend saved her. After she recovered from the near drowning, she wrote on a stone:


The friend, who had slapped and saved her best friend, asked her, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, and now, you write on a stone, why?”

The other friend replied: “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand, where the winds of forgiveness can erase it, but when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone, so no wind can ever erase it.”


Pope John Paul II

The Value of Prayer

Through prayer, especially to Jesus at Communion you will understand so many things about the world and its relationship to him, and you will be in a position to read accurately what are referred to as the “signs of the times.” Above all, you will have something to offer those who come to you in need.

Through prayer you will possess Christ and be able to communicate him to others. And this is the greatest contribution you can make in your lives: to communicate Christ to the world. You will receive the power to show compassion to every human being – just as Jesus did. Through prayer you will have a part of salvation history as it unfolds in your generation.

In prayer you will be able to enter into the heart to Jesus and understand his feelings towards his Church. By using the Psalms, the prayer book that Jesus used, you will be able to repeat, under the actions of the Holy Spirit, the praise and thanksgiving that have been offered to God for centuries by his people. In all circumstances in your lives you will find that Jesus is with you – he is close to you in prayer.

It is in prayer that will bring joy into your lives and help you to overcome the obstacles of Christina living…When you go to Jesus in prayer – and through him to the Father – you will always find inspiration in Mary, his Mother. With every generation of disciples you will learn to prayer with her, and with her to await the action of the Holy Spirit in your lives.
