After reading about St. Frances, and how God made her wait and how he was testing her, I know realize God was testing me too. He was testing my faith, how strong I could be, just as he did to her. St. Frances taught me to never give up on my faith. No matter what, she knew God would always be there for her, and now I too know that God will always be there for me. Saint Francis taught me something, but also helped me realize
“Love and sacrifice are closely linked, like the sun and the light. We cannot love without suffering and we cannot suffer without love” said Saint Gianna. Saint Gianna always prayed and devoutly believed in God, even when she had a difficult decision to make. She trusted God and chose life, therefore she is an inspirational role model about how to respect life. Gianna Beretta was born to Alberto and Marie Beretta on October 4, 1922.
Saint Clare of Assisi After many hours of scrolling through many different saints, one specific saint stood out to me. Her name was Saint Clare. After reading her story I knew that she was the right saint for me. Confirmation is a very important sacrament so I wanted to choose the best saint possible. I feel that Saint Clare was the best Saint for me.
It made your post interest to read and it made it seem like you know what you were talking about. Religion plays a big role in society today. I love your example about the poor lady that always pays had her tithe to the church in hope of having eternal life. Once again you have done a great job on your post this week. I wish you luck in the remaining time in this class!
In 1926, Helena finally received her religious habit, and chose the name of Sister Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament. In 1928, Faustina Kowalska took her first religious vows as a nun. She traveled to different convents as a cook, and when she was in Plock Poland, she started showing early signs of Tuberculosis so she was sent away to rest. In 1931, Jesus visited Faustina once again, and he asked her to paint a picture of him as the “King of Divine Mercy,” with the words “Jesus, I trust in you” written on the painting. Since Faustina didn’t have the artistic ability to paint, she asked different painters to do this for her.
I combined the three, yet completely changed the angel that appears to Mary. Mary and her mother brought spices to his tomb so they could anoint him, and when they arrived, the stone covering his resting place had been moved (Luke 24:1-2; Mark 16:4-5). Mary, the mother of Jesus, makes perfect sense to why she would be the one to anoint His body. It was her son and a mother cares for her children the most. So, in the case of Mary Magdalene, she also makes perfect sense to why she would be the one to anoint His body with his mother.
“Stir in me a love that’s deep, a love that’s wide, a love that’s sweet. And help me, Lord, to never keep it to myself.” Steffany Gretzinger wrote these inspiring words, which correspond to the action Christians are called to in Matthew 5:13-16. Above all else, I desire to demonstrate God’s endless love not only in my career in the nonprofit industry but throughout all areas of my life. I have struggled with my health for most of my life. Consequently, I aim to work for a nonprofit that cares for sick children and their families.
The story of Esther shows how trusting in God can lead to great rewards. Her obedience saved an entire nation. She was prepared for the worst-case scenario but because of her bravery and trust in God, she got the best-case scenario. Esther 4:16 says “If I perish, I perish.” Showing her devotedness to God, even though she knew her life was at stake. Even though when times are tough, it may seem like God is absent, but we must remember that he is always with us.
What it means to worship in the Christian faith and what it does to uplift them spiritually What is worship? Worship is giving worth to someone or something, genuine worship is a wholehearted expression of wonder, adoration, love, admiration, celebration, and fascination. It is a great feeling that occurs in your soul as you start to worship God for his love and appreciate him for all he has done. Most Christians today do not know the relevance of worship, true worship is more than singing, lifting hands, bowing heads, closing eyes, and smiling towards heaven. Worship is what connects the physical to the spiritual.
