Traditional Marriage between A Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman by Florence D’Costa

When a Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman who really and truly love each other, get married in a Catholic Church by a Catholic priest in the Presence of God, that is the best thing that could happen. This couple should make every effort to continue to stay in love for the rest of their lives. They should pray daily and make God their Number One ……

Showers of Blessings by Florence D’Costa

When either, we, our families, our church or our country face huge problems, we must believe that Christ lives and that He knows exactly what we are going through, WE MUST PRAY WITH FAITH and we will get answers.

Colossians 3:12 by Florence D’Costa

This verse, I find very interesting.  Paul was in prison when he wrote to the Colossians.  So, what does Paul say here.  He addresses them as ‘God’s Chosen People’.  To belong to someone is very special.  It is a very special feeling.  And to belong to God is really awesome and especially to have the knowledge that God has hand picked and chosen them.  He further calls them ‘holy and dearly loved.’  When we are called ‘holy and dearly loved’ it gives us a feeling of being very close to God.  What is Paul telling them to do.  He is specifically telling them to clothe themselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  These qualities belonged to Jesus Christ.  Because Christ was compassionate, he always healed the sick, made the blind to see, fed the multitude, raised the dead to life etc….  He was God and yet he was humble.  He did not strut around in grand clothes.  He was God and yet he emptied himself of all his glory and was born as man in this world.  Philippians 2:7  but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Jesus Christ humbled himself by being born was a mere creature.  Jesus Christ was kind to children who had no status in those days.  He would gather them and he would show kindness and he would speak with them.  Matthew 11:29 – Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 18:26-27  26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, cancelled the debt and let him go.  Here we see that Christ was patient and he forgave….  So my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ is very patient and gentle with us.  So Paul is requesting us to be like Christ.  So, let us try our best to be Christlike.

Philippians 4:13 by Florence D’Costa

My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, there is something I would like to share with you.  Many times in our lives, we do experience a sort of disability when it comes to doing God’s Holy Will.  Let us ask ourselves, Why?  Why do we feel incapable of performing?  It is because we try to do things with our own strength.  But if we realise that we are in Christ and Christ is in us and whatever we do, it is vital that we do through Christ who strengthens us.  If we keep this in mind and stay connected, God will give us the grace to do all things through Christ Jesus.

Inner Peace by Florence D’Costa

It is very easy for us to lose our inner peace. Inner peace is priceless, so let realise this and be happy. It is also important for us to love ourselves, our neighbour and most of all, Love God. Many of us at one time or another, think that God is not helping us enough but my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, let us allow God to be God and let him be in control of our lives. God is awesome and he is the best person who knows what is best for us and for our souls.

Philippians 4: 6-7 by Florence D’Costa

When we pray, we come into the Presence of God and His presence.  God’s presence is soothing and comforting.  Sometimes, there may be times when we just want to come into His Presence and remain silent but yet being aware of His Presence.  When we come into His Presence, it is important for us to praise and thank God for His blessings from the silence of our hearts.  Then we could get into the mode of surrendering ourselves and our families to Christ.  What is the meaning of surrender – It means to let go – to give everything to God.  To have total faith.  If we have total faith in God, we will surrender everything to Him and Trust that He will take care of us.

Let’s say, when we were children, what would be our attitude towards our parents.  We ofcourse would trust them totally and completely.  That was my relationship with my parents.  I trusted them.  So, if we trusted our parents who are human and we believed that they would take care of us in the best way possible – how much more do we need to trust in God.  God was the one who took care of our parents who took care of us.  Well, so I guess that now we need to trust in God totally and completely for ourselves, our families and for all, especially for all those whom we love and care for.  SO, SURRENDER AND TRUST ARE THE KEY WORDS.

Our Heavenly Father, sent Jesus his son to die for us, so that we will have new life and hence it is important for us to SURRENDER TO GOD through Jesus Christ, His Son and trust in Him totally and completely for MIRACLES TO HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES.

Romans 7:15 by Florence D’Costa

Image result for Romans 7

I think this is a very interesting verse. Paul himself was struggling with sin.  He says, I do not understand what I DO  but What I hate I DO.  What he wants to do he does NOT DO.  I guess we all struggle with this concept.  To be perfect and free from sin is quite a difficult task.  We can only avoid sin through the Grace of God.  The Grace of God is very powerful and if we have God’s Grace, you can be sure that you will be always able to avoid sin and its consequences.

So, my dear brothers and sisters, I think it is best that we pray continuously to be in the PRESENCE OF GOD.  For if we are continuously in His Presence, He will give us the Grace to be free from sin and its consequences.

SO LET US PRAY CONTINUOUSLY = 24 x 7

God is our shepherd by Florence D’Costa

God is our Shepherd and we Iike sheep have all gone astray, so God laid all our iniquity upon His Son Jesus Christ so that we the sheep would be saved and redeemed. So, let our prayer be ‘ Shepherd me O God beyond my wants, beyond my fears from death into life’.
