Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for the Kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who are now weeping,
for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil
on account of the Son of Man.
“Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!
Behold, your reward will be great in heaven.
For their ancestors treated the prophets
in the same way.
But woe to you who are rich,
for you have received your consolation.
But woe to you who are filled now,
for you will be hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will grieve and weep.
Woe to you when all speak well of you,
for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”

Paper from a Bible, fused to a piece of steel, was found in the debris shortly after 9/11 by a fireman and given to photographer Joel Meyerowitz. In 2010, he gave it to the September 11 Memorial Museum.

For the many souls outraged over the “decor” of the new Christ Cathedral.
Ponder if you will
Imagine a new married couple. They purchase their first house. Is that house automatically furnished and full of memories? No. Over time and years, that house is transformed into their home.There are good times and bad, building expansion, downsizing, and rest.
What makes it a home? The souls who reside in it. Its not the decorations that should grab our attention, but the fact that our Lord now resides here and is inviting all of us to reside with Him also
The earth is the LORD’s and all it holds, the world and those who dwell in it. – Psalm 24
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!
Blessed Independence Day
Feast of the Most Precious Blood
Beautiful prayer from Catholic Online:
O Precious Blood of Jesus, infinite price of sinful man’s redemption, both drink and laver of our souls, Thou who dost plead continually the cause of man before the throne of infinite mercy; from the depths of my heart, I adore Thee, and so far as I am able, I would requite Thee for the insults and outrages which Thou dost continually receive from human beings, and especially from those who rashly dare to blaspheme Thee. Who would not bless this Blood of infinite value? Who doth not feel within himself the fire of the love of Jesus who shed it all for us? What would be my fate, had I not been redeemed by this Divine Blood? Who hath drawn it from the veins of my Savior, even to the last drop? Ah, this surely was the work of love. O infinite love, which has given us this saving balm! O balm beyond all price, welling up from the fountain of infinite love, grant that every heart and every tongue may be enabled to praise Thee, magnify Thee and give Thee thanks both now and for evermore.
“In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” John 16:33
This beautiful day, this day of the Sacred Heart of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray for all who are suffering with the bad news that fills this world with so much anxiety and depression. I pray for souls to grab hold of our Lord with both hands, allowing Him to touch their hearts. Allowing Him to heal the broken pieces we all have, and to bring us His peace.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You. I do not trust in the false hope of political leaders or worldly possessions. I do not trust in the news of the day. I do not trust in myself. My Lord and my God, I trust in You. You O Lord who have said: “I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” I believe, I trust, I love You. Lead the way, fill me with You.
