Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

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.

I am a Catholic by Florence D’Costa

I felt inspired to post this.  I suggest that we always carry maybe a card or this information written on a card, just in case we do meet with an accident…..  Also it is important that when a Catholic is admitted into hospital that they intimate the hospital Chaplain that you are a Catholic, so that he could come and visit you and pray for you and give you Holy Communion which will definitely help and strengthen you.

Let us also pray for our priests every day and also pray for Vocations to the Priesthood.

Choose Palliative Care – Why Assisted Suicide?

Humminbird

This image is so beautiful and there is so much beauty in this world.  T0 feel healthy and strong is an awesome feeling.  What happens when a person is terminally ill, how do you think they feel, especially if they are having terrible pain.  Well, we do have palliative care and that is so beautiful.  People are loved and they are made to feel comfortable as they slowly approach death.  Palliative Care enables terminally ill people to die with dignity.  They are made to feel comfortable right to the very end.  Why do some people want assisted suicide?  Why are Governments for assisted suicide instead of continuing with palliative care.

Suffering/Sickness/Problems – Give them all to Jesus!

There are many people who are having problems such as various types of sickness or illness.  For some it is terminal illness.  Each individual is suffering in their own way.  Whatever be your problems, just give them all to Jesus and He will turn your sorrows into Joy.

Suffering – Can you Pray?

To those who are sick in hospitals, nursing homes, sick at home and in agonising and excruciating pain.  Is it possible for such people to praise and thank God.  For those who are suffering terrible and excruciating pain, it is highly impossible to be praising God during that time but your love for God is above all others, then your soul is in the Presence of God.  That is what is important.  Loving God all the time even without saying One Word out loud. There is one thing I would like to tell you all.  When you are suffering excruciating pain, and you know that you love God above all else then, I am sure that God is very much aware of how much you love Him and YOU CAN BE SURE THAT YOU ARE IN HIS EMBRACE.  Suffering, Happy, Sad, Laughing, Dancing, Crying, Smiling – whatever you may be doing – if you love God above all else, you can be sure that you will be FOREVER IN HIS EMBRACE and that is the safest place to be at all times.

At the Foot of the Cross – Lyrics

Are you feeling burdened or stressed.  Are you worried about something that you cannot solve?  Are you sick with some terminal illness?  Feeling weak and alone?

I have some good news for you. Most importantly it is necessary to forgive all those who have hurt you and to ask forgiveness from those whom you have hurt. Then leave it all at the Foot of the Cross.

Jesus Christ died for you and for me.  Leave your burdens at the Foot of the Cross and believe that you are Loved by God and He will relieve you of your burdens, your sickness and whatever else is keeping you down.

JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU AND HE DIED FOR YOU.

Jesus Christ said, ‘YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL”.  NOW BE READY TO RECEIVE A FLOOD OF BLESSINGS.

Nothing is impossible for Those who believe in God!

Yes, my dear friends, nothing is impossible for those who believe in God. So, let us all shout to the Lord –
‘I Believe, I Believe, I Believe in You’. Yes, Our Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of our praise. There is no One Like our God. He alone is worthy! He is Our King!
Jesus Christ, the name above all names. Yes, the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ is Greater than any other love. May the Name of Christ Jesus be lifted up.Let us all bow down and adore Our Lord and God. May we give Him all glory – May everything that we think, say and do give Him all the Glory.

Let us during this Lenten Season have our gaze on Christ Jesus. He suffered and died for each one of us. This afternoon I went to a friend’s house and she was building an additional garage, so she took me and showed me around the new building. We then walked into the garden and there was a large thorny bush which was bearing fruit. So,we were plucking the fruit and thorns
pierced my fingers so many times and it really did hurt.
During the Way of the Cross I was feeling the thorns piercing my fingers and I could imagine the excruciating that Christ felt when He was tortured and crown with thorns. If we keep the Suffering Christ in our minds during this Lent, we will surely be strong and brave to overcome all the odds and problems that come our way. This would strengthen us to be over-
comers and Nothing would be impossible for those who believe in a God – Our Lord Jesus Christ, who was so willing to empty himself and die for each one of us. Through His death He has taught us to be overcomers. When we believe in Him, impossible things become possible because of our faith in Him.

We must start declaring that the Gracious Hand of God will save us. We must all the time brag on God’s favour, then the more we will receive God’s favour. God’s gracious hand is on each one of us. We always think that other people have more talent, more money, more beauty, more everything and we become despondent. Even if people are against us and if they are trying to push us down, we must believe that God’s gracious hand is on us. If we believe thus, we are then Overcomers and we can very confidently say that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN GOD!

Laughter and Happiness is a Gateway to Healthy Living!


It is easier to laugh and to smile than to frown. I think about 15 facial muscles are activated when you smile and 32 muscles are activated when you frown. It is so much easier to smile than to frown. I think generous people smile more often and selfish people frown most of the time. You might ask me, why? Well, when a person smiles genuinely, it makes the person who is smiling happy and the person who receives the smiles also becomes happy. Happiness is good for the health and frowning is detrimental to health. The person who frowns generates unease or unhappiness in the person who is targetted.

This evening I visited a friend’s blog and I was very surprised to view one video. I could not find my earphones and hence I just viewed the video and what I saw made me laugh and laugh and laugh. I then decided to write about the benefits of laughter and I copied this following article:


TAKEN FROM : HELP GUIDE.ORG
A trusted Non-profit Resource
Laughter is the Best Medicine
The Health Benefits of Humor and Laughter
Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. In addition to the domino effect of joy and amusement, laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.

Laughter is strong medicine for mind and body
“Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.”

~ Paul E. McGhee, Ph.D.
Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health.

Laughter is good for your health
Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. UNQUOTE


I did hear about a person who was suffering from an incurable disease. The doctor advised this patient to watch comedy movies. This patient very religiously began to watch comedy movies. He enjoyed every movie and he laughed and laughed his way to health. After a period of time, he went back to his doctor and the doctor was very surprised and happy to announce to his patient that he was HEALED.

My dear people, I advise you to laugh and to make other people laugh. Give away your smiles – It is free and it does not cost anything. If someone gives you a smile, receive it graciously because when we receive a smile and we smile back, it makes the person who gave us a smile, happy as well. Generous people are happy and they make others happy. Selfish people frown all the time and they make other unhappy as well. It is upto to us to either SMILE or FROWN. We can choose to be either GENEROUS OR SELFISH.

What do you choose to do? LAUGH, SIMLE OR FROWN?
It is upto to you to choose. If people around us are unhappy, we must strive to do our best to make them LAUGH OR SMILE.

This is a challenge for me and you and I know that we can do it. Let us go my dear people and make the WORLD A BETTER, HAPPIER AND A HEALTHIER PLACE!
