Urgent Prayer Request

whocanbeagainstus:

Guys, I need you guys to pray that my Dad is miraculously healed. You have probably seen my posts, but he has stage IV brain cancer, a glioblastoma multiforme. Its been just over a year since he was diagnosed, and the tumor has grown too large for us to continue treatments. He’s had two surgeries,…

Your post about homophobia confuses me. Do you actually think homosexuals should be in the Catholic Church?

It depends what you mean by “homosexuals.”

If you mean people who are attracted to the same gender, yes!

If you mean people who are in committed same-sex relationships, yes!

If you mean people who may be sexually active and just starting on their journey with God, yes!

Everyone belongs in the church.  All of humanity, from those just starting to climb the ladder, to those who are near the top.

We don’t want sins, but we want sinners.  

All of us sin.  We’re engaging in a learning experience to find what God wants for us, and how we can try to submit ourselves to His will.  Living by holy mother Church’s precepts, as much as possible, is the only way to true freedom, for everyone.

Unless you’re like Calvinist or something, you realize that Christ died for the whole world.  Even for the criminal, the addict, the glutton, the liar, the homosexual.  

Jesus came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.  It sounds like you realize that homosexual actions are sinful.  Why, then, would you prevent those who commit them to come to know Jesus?  He’s here for them, you know.

oh my gosh.  

when I normally see questions like this, I cringe at what I’m about to read. 

But oh my gosh. 

Finally someone who gets it.  

Jesus wants sinners. 

Their porter (Edmund Fitzgerald) is the bees knees!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen that one. The best porter I’ve ever had, though, is easily Yards Brewing Co’s George Washington Tavern Porter. Spectacular.

Great lakes brewing co! <3 <3 <3 <3

I think theirs might be my favorite Oktoberfest :D

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

- Saint Basil the Great

No one presumes to teach an art that he has not first mastered through study…And yet, how often do they who are completely ignorant of spiritual precepts profess themselves physicians of the heart, while anyone who is ignorant of the power of medicine is too embarrassed to be seen as a physician of the body.

- St. Gregory the Great ,The Book of Pastoral Rule, 1:1.

One day you will see that it wasn’t a choice between the “Christian” or the “Religious” ideology and other truths, but that it was between reality and perversions of reality in varying degrees of twisting. You will see it clearly and perhaps the voice irresistibly compelling you to see it will sound exactly like your own.

But my father never accepted any bribes. He lived a very simple life and wore the same three suits until the day he died. I still keep those suits to remember him."

If you pray to the Lord or to Our Lady or the angels and saints from your whole heart, then you speak to the very heart of the Lord of Our Lady or of the angels or saint. for we are in the one heart of God, in the Holy Spirit, and all the saints are in the heart of God. “Dwelleth in Me and I in Him” (John 6:56).
