Live the Faith! Prayers for the Pope

June 30, 2020

“And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind
on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth
shall be loosed in heaven.”
– Matthew 16:18-19

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

Christ set Peter as the head of His Church. The Vicar of Christ, Bishop of Rome, and head of the Holy See. Those who succeed him in that see succeed him also in the supreme headship. As Catholics, we are called to be faithful to Christ’s Vicar on Earth and, in doing so, are faithful to Christ himself.

It is also essential that we pray for the Holy Father. On this feast of Saints Peter and Paul, let us offer a special prayer for Pope Francis and for the Universal Church.

Live the Faith! Evangelization in a Secular Environment

June 16, 2020

“You will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you
will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.”
– Acts 1:8

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

Do your coworkers and friends know that you’re Catholic? Do you take the opportunities the Holy Spirit gives you to share the glory and love of Christ?

Take some time to read and meditate on the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 and ask God how you can be a better example of Christian joy and love to those around you. Ask Him to open the hearts of your friends, family, and coworkers, and create opportunities for you to share the truth of the Gospel.

“When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved,
he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said
to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the
disciple took her into his home.”
– John 19: 26-27

How well do you know your mother? Do you ask her for her intercession and guidance? Are you familiar with the Marian Dogmas of the Church? Or why we even have Dogmas?
