Trust in God with all your heart by Florence D’Costa

Proverbs 3:5 ❥
I know that some of us at times feel doubtful if we are loved and cared for by God.  When we look around us and we see that other people have much more than we have and we feel quite let down by God.  Through experience, I would like to share with you today that what you have is what God has given you and it is best to trust Him because He is able to see around the bend and we cannot.  God has our best interests in mind – So pray more, meaning coming into God’s presence and have a chat with Him.  Tell him your problems, your worries and if you have any anxieties, just share this with him and wait upon the Lord, for He will surely answer you.  He works when you TRUST IN HIM.  Yes, we are not able to understand God’s ways but as the word of God says – let us not lean on our own understanding.  When we trust in God, we allow Him to perform miracles in our

First Reading – 1 Peter 4:7-13 1 June 2018

I personally feel this is a very powerful reading, so please read and meditate on God’s word and I am sure you will surely have a message from God which would encourage you and make you a better person with a purpose in life.

1 June, 2018 – Saint Justin Martyr
First reading 1 Peter 4:7-13 ©
Each of you has received a special grace
Everything will soon come to an end, so, to pray better, keep a calm and sober mind. Above all, never let your love for each other grow insincere, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others. If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.

Divine Mercy Sunday – 2018 by Florence D’Costa

divine mercy
Divine Mercy Sunday – Wow! is the only word that I can use for the Mercy that the faithful receive on Divine Mercy Sunday.  For those of us who did pray the Divine Mercy Novena, attend Mass – free from sin and for those who make a conscious decision to try not to sin in the future, would gain a Plenary or Partial Indulgence.  God’s Mercy has no bounds. God’s devotion to His faithful, his desire to bless us constantly and to forgive us and to make us pure and holy is foremost in his plan for us.

If we have received a Plenary Indulgence on this wonderful day or a partial indulgence would for sure know the state of our soul because we would feel free from sin and we would surely feel a desire to keep away from sin.  Words cannot express our gratitude to God for His love and Divine Mercy.

Let us today, make a decision to keep away from sin and evil and to walk alongside Jesus Christ and to love him alone and to do His Holy Will in this life.  It is also important for us to help others who are willing to be helped and help them to journey with Christ and to be safe in His Love and Divine Mercy!

We should also pray for our priests who are instrumental in helping us to receive tremendous graces through the Sacraments.  Life is surely not easy for us or for priests and we all have a responsibility to pray for our priests and for one another.

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday and God bless us all.

The Catholic Mass (1) by Florence D’Costa

The Mass is the pinnacle of prayer.  Mass is a Celebration where we celebrate Christ.   Christ Jesus died only once on Calvary.  At every Mass we go into time and we are present at Calvary.  We are there when Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was betrayed, tormented, tortured and crucified.  He died for you and for me.  He died for the whole world and for all people.  If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, then Salvation is ours for free.  The Mass is a powerful weapon against Satan and his wiles.    The whole of heaven is present during Mass with all the angels and saints.  At Mass, there are readings and the gospel – The Liturgy of the Word.  We have the prayers of the faithful.  At the Offertory, the priest offers the whole congregation to God – as we are, including our sinfulness.  Liturgy of the Eucharist – When we receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion, God, the Father, blesses us and a lot of graces is given to us so that we can continue to live for Christ and for what He stands for.  At Holy Communion, we receive Jesus Christ Himself.  Let us pray that Christ whom we receive in Holy Communion will make us a new creation and will make us more and more like Him.  I will continue to write about the Mass as and when I feel prompted by the Holy Spirit.

You Raise Me Up sung by Florence D’Costa

At my good friend, Naomi Heiden’s funeral which was today, the hymn YOU RAISE ME UP was sung by the Assistant priest of St Anthony’s Church, Noble Park, Vic. He played the guitar and sang. I felt quite stirred and hence, I am singing this song now.

Amazing Grace sung by Florence D’Costa

With the Holy Week approaching, I felt that it was good to say to ourselves that it was necessary for us to have Jesus come down and die for us, so that we could obtain Salvation and New Life and be saved from eternal damnation.

Lent by Florence D’Costa

During this period of Lent, let us be more inward looking as we journey with Jesus towards the Cross and Calvary. Let us pray to Christ to help us become better people so that we can help others to journey with Christ.  I will surely do another video soon.
