GOD’S WORD

For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

For by grace, you have been saved through faith. And this is not of yourselves, for it is a gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8)

But the Lord said: “If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you may say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted, and be transplanted into the sea.’ And it would obey you. (Luke 17:6)

HEROES’ WORDS

For Faith is the beginning and the end is love, and God is the two of them brought into unity. After these comes whatever else makes up a Christian gentleman. –St. Ignatius of Antioch

Faith means battles; if there are no contests, it is because there are none who desire to contend. –St. Ambrose

Faith does not quench desire, but inflames it. –St. Thomas Aquinas

A faint faith is better than a strong heresy. –St. Thomas More

It is not the actual physical exertion that counts toward a man’s progress, nor the nature of the task, but the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken. -St. Francis Xavier

MEDITATION

Faith is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” (Heb 11:1) our firm belief in God and all that He has revealed to us through Holy Mother Church. “When you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God.” (1 Thes 2:13)

Our faith is a free assent to the whole truth that God has revealed. We have faith only if we believe in Christ’s entire public revelation. The Catholic faith is faith that Christ instituted a divine institution, a Church blessed with authority to infallibly teach His public revelation. If we accept only doctrines consistent with our own experience we are not accepting them on faith but rather on human analysis. (Fr. John Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary).

 

THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY

Prayer before the recitation: Sign of the cross. Hail Mary.

In petition: Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, full-blown white roses, tinged with the red of the passion, to remind thee of thy glories, fruits of the sufferings of thy Son and thee, each rose recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee! Thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee. Show thyself my Mother!
