Our toddler is fascinated by this crucifixion painting in the back hallway of our church! As a family,we didn't come into the Catholic Church until our two other sons were older,but I'm happy that little Archie here will have no memory of us not being a Christian family. #catholic#catholicchurch#crucifixion#catholicfamily
For your greatness in prayer and humility and love, for your ascetical firmness and Orthodoxy of faith, God hath given His exceeding wondrous gifts to you as unto prophets of His will, as to angels on the earth, and stewards of men's salvation. Wherefore enlighten us also, O universal lights of Optina.
Fr. Anthony Sciarappa cohosts in what may be our fastest paced joke fest ever recorded! We chat about our weekends including a tall hat guy, preaching to plants, angry Taylor, terrible travel and making Fr. Anthony speechless. • • • Our guest this week is recording artist @amandavernonmusic! She's doing great work as the Catholic Alycia Keys through her music and new book "When God Wrecks Your Romance." She somehow gets Fr. Anthony to recall his dating life before the priesthood and it was beautiful to watch unfold. She is an absolute joy with a fun life story to share unlike any you've heard before. • • • In the final segment, we check in to see if Fr. Anthony is giving any good homilies lately and Taylor gets to live the dream of what every lay person has wanted to do during homilies since the dawn of time. Enjoy as you live vicariously though Taylor. • • • LINK IN THE BIO or listen wherever podcasts are available. #makecatholicismfunagain#catholicpodcast#catholic

#evangeliodeldía Miércoles 2️⃣3️⃣ de Octubre 🙌 📖 Lectura del Santo evangelio según San Lucas 12,39-48 En aquel tiempo, dijo Jesús a sus discípulos: «Comprended que si supiera el dueño de casa a qué hora viene el ladrón, no le dejaría abrir un boquete. Lo mismo vosotros, estad preparados, porque a la hora que menos penséis viene el Hijo del hombre.» Pedro le preguntó: «Señor, ¿has dicho esa parábola por nosotros o por todos?» El Señor le respondió: «¿Quién es el administrador fiel y solícito a quien el amo ha puesto al frente de su servidumbre para que les reparta la ración a sus horas? Dichoso el criado a quien su amo, al llegar, lo encuentre portándose así. Os aseguro que lo pondrá al frente de todos sus bienes. Pero si el empleado piensa: "Mi amo tarda en llegar", y empieza a pegarles a los mozos y a las muchachas, a comer y beber y emborracharse, llegará el amo de ese criado el día y a la hora que menos lo espera y lo despedirá, condenándolo a la pena de los que no son fieles. El criado que sabe lo que su amo quiere y no está dispuesto a ponerlo por obra recibirá muchos azotes; el que no lo sabe, pero hace algo digno de castigo, recibirá pocos. Al que mucho se le dio, mucho se le exigirá; al que mucho se le confió, más se le exigirá.» Palabra del Señor... #evangeliodehoy#palabradevida#palabradelseñor#lecturadíaria#evangelio#lectio#lectiodivina#misión#lamisiónesdetodos#mesdelasmisiones#mesmisionero#misioneros#diosnoshabla#sagradaescritura#catholicchurch#iglesiacatólica#católicosoy#catholic#deus#god
I didn't realize that my stack of plant hangers was on the shelf when I took this pic, but it makes me all the happier! Future plant homes, actually plants, books, and new vintage goodies all in one pic! I did a little walk through in my stories of all the new-to-me things I got last night. I also thought I would share my favorite things about buying second hand. I know there can sometimes be a negative connotations associated with buying used, but I gently ask you to take that to prayer if you're feeling that way and ask God if there is a genuine need to buy new or if that is pride or something else getting in the way. Here are a few reasons why buying used is AWESOME for you style, mama earth, and your precious heart:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. The average American throws away 81 pounds of clothing a year. That is 26,503,200,000 pounds or 13,251,600 TONS every.single.year. Buying used/mending/upcycling prevents so much waste! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Even if the clothing/fabric you are buying was not ethically made, the price tag has already been paid, whether you buy it or not. Buying second hand is one of the quickest ways to go ethical with your clothing purchases! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. The money you save allows you to buy ethically made items for those items that need to be new or cannot be found used. Like Pact for your undies! Which happen to be the same price (and sometimes less!!!) as Target, btw! I will throw a link up in my bio. Their camisoles are great, too!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. It is like a treasure hunt. You never know what you will find. When the perfect item comes into view, it is priceless!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Since you aren't among the throngs of target shoppers, what you're wearing is generally unique, how fun! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 6.
