TERESA OF CALCUTTA

God will fully satisfy every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”-Phil 4:19


Psalm 33, verse 18-19
18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear him, upon those who count on his mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive through famine.

You cannot receive if you do not ask. Let us ask for God’s mercy and count on it, to deliver our soul from death and keep us alive through this earthly famine for ourselves and others. In fact one pious work we could do this week is a Novena to the Divine Mercy. In the novena Christ asks us to pray each day for a certain groups of people.

1.      All Sinners
2.      Priests and Religious
3.      Devout Souls
4.      Unbelievers
5.      Departed brethren
6.      Children
7.      Saints
8.      Those in purgatory
9.      And the Lukewarm

A good time to pray the novena is the hour of Christ’s death. “At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy…”

Today if you have time would be a good day to read Saint John Paul II’s encyclical[1] letter-Rich in Mercy.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta[2]

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, known as the "saint of the gutters", feast day will be September 5 for the church calendar, during her life, was declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Francis (September 4, 2016) just 19 years after her death. A Nobel peace laureate, her legacy complements Pope Francis's vision of a humble church that strives to serve the poor, and the festivities in her honor which were the highlight of his Holy Year of Mercy. Francis said she was a "dispenser of divine mercy" and held world powers to account "for the crimes of poverty they created. For Mother Teresa, mercy was the salt which gave flavor to her work, it was the light which shone in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering. She showed we can't all do everything, but little gestures made with so much love are what's important."

Today is my first born son Christopher Gabriel’s 41st birthday please pray for his intentions. (His name means Bearer of Christ with the strength of God)
