A Prayer to Our Lady of the Pillar

Today, October 12th, is the feast day of Our Lady of the Pillar!

Here is a prayer and some information on Our Lady of he Pillar, that I found on the Vatican website!

Hope you enjoy, God bless!!!!

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE PILLAR

Most Holy Virgin of Pillar,
to thy care we confide the needs of our families,
the joys of children,
the dreams of youth,
the anxieties of adults,
the sufferings of the sick,
and our preparation for life’s end.

To Thee we entrust the perseverance
of our priests and religious.

Ever increase our Faith,
give assurance to our Hope
and enliven our Charity.
Amen.

– Pope John Paul II

OUR LADY OF PILLAR

The origin of the Our Lady of Pillar shrine to the year 40 A.D., when St. James the Apostle was sitting here on the bank of the Ebro River, discouraged and heartsick at his lack of success in bringing Christianity to the region.  The Virgin Mary appeared to him and reassured him that his efforts would not be in vain.  She also asked him to consecrate a church in her name, and left behind a pillar of jasper to mark the spot where she had made her appearance.
As Mary promised, St. James was indeed successful in bringing Christianity to Spain, and the place of his encounter with the Virgin became a holy place.  Through the centuries—including years when Zaragoza was under Muslim control, when it suffered from plague and famine, and through years of civil war and unrest—this site has continued to draw the faithful.  Holy men and women such as St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Ignatius of Loyola have all made the journey here to show their devotion to Our Lady of Pilar, who is the patroness of Spain.
The most prominent miracle associated with the shrine happened in the seventeenth century to a poor beggar named Miguel Juan Pellicer from the town of Calanda.  Unable to work because of an amputated leg, he had a great devotion to the shrine and frequently prayed there for help.  The Virgin Mary answered his prayers by restoring his missing leg, and after word spread of the miracle, the number of pilgrims to the church greatly increased.

 

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

” If it’s outlawed then..is it okay if I’m raped and conceived a child due to it?”

isaiah442-sm

The ‘It’ in ” If it’s outlawed then..is it okay if I’m raped and conceived a child due to it?” is referring to the horrid murderous act of abortion. Someone recently asked me this question. At first I did not know how to respond other than” No, aborting the child is still wrong.” Which at the time I was asked this question, I just paused, prayed to the Holy Spirit, and then I came up with a response, only with the help of the Holy Spirit, though. So, before I elaborate more, I would like to briefly apologize for having not posted anything for quite some time, I’ve just kind of had writers block number one, and also I’ve just been going through a rough patch of grass and needed to take a break. But on the bright side of things, I’m posting something now!! Now, let’s get back to this mainstream issue of abortion.

If Abortion were outlawed and a woman conceives as a result of rape, then in that case, that is the cross that Jesus Christ has asked that women to bare, with the help of Him. The Lord NEVER gives us too much to handle. Now, I will admit, being raped, having to carry birth and raise the child that was conceived due to it is a very large cross. But it is NOTHING in comparison with Christ’s’ suffering on the Cross! So in the case that a woman is raped and conceives a child due to it, that woman must stand stead-fast in the Lord, not give in to the temptation to abort the poor innocent soul, pray unceasingly, and stay close to Our Lord during the carrying of her cross. Even though that child was conceived from a sinful and unjust act, the baby still has EVERY right to live out their life, grow, mature, and then when the Lord calls him/her home, hopefully go into eternal peace with the King of kings and stay eternally in the Kingdom of Heaven. I’ll be completely open with you; I was produced by an act of sin… I was conceived outside of wedlock, and I know not my real biological dad. But does that take away my right to live a life? Nope. Yes, I understand it’s to totally different places on the line of severity, but still.. A life is a life, and all lives deserve to be lived! So again, if a woman was raped, and from that she conceives a child then that woman, who may I tell you must be very strong mentally and spiritually for God to give her such a large cross, must take up her cross, stand stead-fast in the Lord, never give in to the temptations to abort the child, pray unceasingly, carry, birth, and raise the child all with the help of The Lord, and do EVERYTHING in her ability to ensure that he/she reaches our ultimate goal…. HEAVEN WITH OUR KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope that this opens the minds of some people, and shows them the truth. May God bless and protect you all!!!!!

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.

I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.

I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.

I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

 

 

God bless you all,

Paige

 

 

More Prayers!

Hello fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ!!

I am very sorry that I have not been posting anything lately…
I have been struggling quite a bit. Please keep me in your prayers!
I just haven’t been able to clear my mind enough to compose a post,
I still haven’t cleared my mind much, but I just felt inspired to post
something today.
Here below, you will find some originally composed prayers, that I
myself have written.
I hope these help you in some way!
Enjoy!!

This first one is to Mamma Mary, asking her for help in a hard time. I
wrote this a few weeks ago when I was quite depressed, And losing my
sight on what matters most.
O sweet Mother Mary,
I am lost, I have lost my way, in this world of great darkness, hatred,
sadness, and gloom.
I have lost my sight on what means and matters most, My beloved, JESUS!
Help to guide me to Him, your Son. In a deeper way than ever before.
Let my focus be forever on Him, Let me see how He is my all in all! My
strength when I am weak! My EVERYTHING!
O sweet Mother Mary,
Christ’s Mother, and mine.
My Queen of Peace, let me never again be lost in the darkness, hatred,
sadness, and gloom of this world again
Amen.

This second one, I actually just wrote today. This prayer is a prayer,
thanking Jesus for what I have, and being glad for the blessings, and
even the CROSSES in my life!

O Jesus,
Beloved of my soul, love of my heart, I come to you in thanksgiving.
I come to you, thanking you for all the good things and even the bad in my life.
No matter, good time or bad, I know you are there, and I know that you care.
Thank you for my breath, my life, my family, and friends. And all the
new people I continue to meet.
Thank you for my trials, Although seemingly endless I know there is a reason!
You are making me stronger, You are making me invincible, through these trials.
Thank You Jesus, thank You for all that You have given me.
I will thank You all the days of my life, in my triumphant times, and
even amiss all my trials!
Amen.

This third and final one is just a short prayer to the Holy Spirit,
that I composed. I say this prayer before I try, and talk to my parents
about anything, Church, God, Religion, and Faith based topic. And I tell
you all, it works!!!

Come Holy Spirit,
As I approach these people, children of GOD, to talk about my Lord and
God, I ask that you fill my heart soul and mind. I ask that you give
me the words to say, when words need to be said, and keep in me
silence when silence is needed.
Tell me what to do, and I shall listen. Give me a direction, and I shall follow.
Through Christ and Our Mother I pray.
Amen.
I hope you all enjoyed, and I hope that these were somewhat helpful!
May God bless you all, and keep you all the days of your life!!!

Stay strong, faithful, positive, and everything will work out.

This Woman

I’m very sorry, that I haven’t  been posting often, it’s just I’ve had A WHOLE LOT, that’s been going in, and I’ve been trying to figure things out. So I finally cleared my mind just enough to post something. I will try and post more often, but I can’t make any promises, I hope God blesses you and your family abundantly!!!

This is a free verse poem, with really no structure. I just wrote it because this woman has had such a big impact on my life! This woman has showed me that, yes God exist and He is living in the world today! He loves each of us dearly and deeply. He puts that special person in our lives to lead us closer to Him, and sometimes that can be more than one person as well. Who’s that person in your life? Do you thank God for them? Do you thank them? If not you should do both. O how He loves us He loves us so much! He created us, and He DIED FOR US!! He is the greatest friend, He laid down His life for us, so we could be with Him for ALL eternity! God bless you all!!!

“This Woman”

Sadly when a mother isn’t the best, you tend to seek a motherly figure, who shakes you by the shoulders, when you are sad and letting the evil one suck the joy out of you, and tell you to snap out of it. And I am happy to say, that, by the grace of God,
I found this woman!
This.
woman,
Shes the one who helped me through troubles, she’s the one who listened to my fears and worries, and wiped away my tears.
She’s the one I go to. She’s the one, who says I love you back, when my mom is in to much of a rush to say it, or doesn’t care,she’s the one who I cry out to fo r a slap in the face to stop wallowing in sorrow,she’s the one who’s been there. She’s the one who goes out of her way to take me to Mass, she wakes up at 4am to take me to Adoration on Saturdays. She came to my First Holy communion and none of my family did.
She’s told me to just breathe, when I feel as though I’m drowning.
She’s picked up the phone, at odd hours of the night, because I call and am in need of someone to talk to.
Through all of this craziness, in my life of a 13 year old, she has been my lifeline, my everything!
This woman,
She is
An amazing woman, I tell you.
To be able to, with the troubles of her own CRAZY life, she still manages to help me, she still manages to make time for me, when my mom doesn’t.
This woman, is a true blessing and gift from God whom I thank God everyday for putting her in my life.

Hope You enjoyed!!

Peace,

A few prayers that I have written

Here below are two prayers, that I myself have written. In the first prayer you may notice a familiar phrase… for any who have or have heard of a Pieta prayer booklet.  That phrase is..“Jesus Mary, I love you, save souls!” Anyways here are the prayers, enjoy, and God Love you!

O Jesus, bread of life,light of my world, love of my soul, live in me today, tomorrow, forever, and always. Guide me to do thy will, give me the strength to bare my cross, help me to know your will, and your will only. O Jesus how I love thee, O Jesus how I adore thee, O Jesus how I trust in Thee, help me to stay strong, give me strength to carry on. O my Jesus, I adore thee, I love thee, I trust in thee, and I believe in thee.
Jesus, Mary, I love you, save souls!
Amen.

Mamma Mary,
Hold me in your motherly embrace, protect me, guide me to your son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
O virgin of all virgins, watch over me and my family, leading them all to Christ. Hold them in a motherly embrace, never leaving their sides, show them you are there, help them to believe.
O Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of mine, present my prayers and intentions to my Lord.
Mamma hold me, mamma guide me, mamma be with me till the end.
Amen.

Hope you enjoyed!

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!

This is Very Bothersome

Have you ever just been so bothered by something, and it just keeps boiling inside of you…and even sometimes, you can’t even sleep? Well, I have. And this something that is bothering me, causing me sleepless nights.. is people distorting God’s creation, and the way life is supposed to go, they way God made it to work! This is done, sadly in many many ways. Take for example, transgenderism. God created man in the image and likeness of Him. When God creates something, is it perfect? The answer is, yes, yes it is. And if something is perfect, does it need alterations? No, no it does not. So, if God’s creation is perfect, and something perfect doesn’t need alterations… then why do we feel the need to “change” our gender?, become something that we are not, something God didn’t create us as. Notice how I put change in quotations? Well, I did that because we can’t  change what God has made.We can’t change something we did not create, and have no control over, now can we. Again, the answer is no, no we cannot. An example is a faucet. You can break, ruin, distort, and remove a faucet… but in the end, what will it be? A FAUCET! It is and always will be a faucet. This is just the same as, how God created a man to be a man, and a woman to be a woman, nothing less, nothing more, and nothing different. You can change what you appear to be on the outside, but not on the inside. You will always be what you were born as, what God made you. Weather that be a man or a woman. You can pretend to be something on the outside, but God knows your inside.. and what  He created you to be. Another issue, that sadly is very present in this world, is people who claim to be gay. May I remind you that this word use to mean happy… but this world, changed it to mean something totally different… something that goes against What God made. Now, me writing this… in no way, am I targeting anyone, and nor do I hate these people. For they are God’s children too. And as a Christian Catholic, I am commanded to love everyone… as is everyone. I don’t hate anyone!!!  Jesus ate with sinners and criminals. And what did he do?Did he hate them? No,  but instead he loved them dearly,I just needed to say that, and set that straight. Anyways, continuing on about what I was saying before, about people who claim to be gay. This once agin traces back to God’s creation. God created man to be with woman and woman to be with man. So what in the world gives us the right to determine what we want to be or do? Huh? God created us, therefore, it’s His will, NOT ours! The most popular argument I hear is, “ if God doesn’t want this, then why does it happen?” Well, the answer is, God gave us free will. And with this free will, that’s been givin to us, we can choose to do the right thing, or the wrong thing. Heaven or Hell. God gave us free will, because He wants us to love him, and do what’s right genuinely.. not forced. He wants our love for Him to be genuine and true. We can choose to do right, or we can choose to do wrong, God or Satan, Heaven or Hell. When people say,  “ Satan made me do it.  They  are being utterly ridiculous. Satan tempts you, you choose freely, to do wrong.  This again goes back to free will, we freely choose to do right or wrong, we aren’t forced into either.For any one who is struggling with this, or knows someone who is, the best thing you can do, is “Pray, hope and don’t worry!”-St. Padre Pio.                       Seek God’s mercy, and forgiveness. He will forgive you! Do not be afraid, God loves every single one of us deeply, and dearly, should we not do the same? Let’s strive to do right, and make a difference in the world! For the better, of course.

May God bless all who read this, and anyone who feels as thought they have done wrong towards God, may they go and seek His everlasting mercy! Find forgiveness in the Lord!

God Love You!

WWJD?

Sorry, I haven’t been posting lately, I’ve been going through a rough time… this post will be relatively short, but I hope you enjoy!

A while back, I remember seeing lots of people wearing wristbands,
that said”WWJD” and this stood for,”What Would Jesus Do” Now, I’ve
stopped seeing those wristbands, which come to think of that is
actually quite sad. If everyone was to ask themselves before doing
something,”What would Jesus do?” Then this world would probably be a
much better place, than it is now.
But, now, lots of, but not all, people, are very self-centered, not
caring about what affects, their actions may have on other people.
Just take abortion for an example. People, don’t care if they Murder
their child, God’s handmade creation!! They, only care about what they
want, or what’s best for them. Some people, as I have heard in my own
experience, use the excuse of,”I don’t have the money r time to take
care of the baby, and give it the life it deserves.” Well, not only
could you give it up for adoption, but, don’t you remember when Jesus
said,”Ask and you shall receive.”?? God never leaves His children, He
created them, He will NEVER leave us stranded, He is ALWAYS with us.
It may be hard to see, but He is. So, honestly their is no need for
abortion whatsoever. There’s a multitude of solutions, other than
murder, Ask yourself What would Jesus do”
In anytime of trouble, or doubt, think to yourself,”WWJD, What would
Jesus do?” And really ponder this question.
So children, adults, mothers, Fathers, Priests, Deacons, Religious
EVERYONE!!! Next time you are faced with a decision, or put in a tough
situation ask yourself,”What would Jesus do?”
If we all were to ask ourselves,What would Jesus do, then, this world
would most likely be in a much better state than it is now.
Remember, WWJD What would Jesus do?
