    Against Wickedness

    Against Wickedness

    This week’s topic is about identifying areas of wickedness in our lives and snuffing them out.

    Lord Jesus, we glorify You and we praise Your Holy Name. For it was by your cross and resurrection that you have set us free from the grips of death. By becoming the spotless lamb to be slain, you paid the ultimate price for us so that we may gain eternal life through faith in You.

    Lord, by our own will we have brought sin into the world and continued to live out that sin through the ages. We confess our wickedness. We have failed to love you above all things and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We stubbornly turn away from you in our times of need and instead put our faith in things of this world.

    As the Church Militant, we must be concerned not only of the evils of this world, but of the “heavenly realms”. Lord, be with us in that battle in our daily lives.  Let us hold fast to you and our Mother Mary, whose intercession we pray for.



    Thank you so much again for praying along with us and all of The Prayer Podcast listeners. Our hope is that we are able to provide you with another tool to bring you closer to God.

    Charity

    Charity

    This week’s topic is the virtue of charity, agape, caritas.

    When you hear the word “charity” you may think of your favorite non-profit that helps those less fortunate in your neighborhood. But, what we are reflecting on today is the virtue of charity. The English word charity comes from the latin caritas. Caritas was translated from the Greek word agape which is the word for the highest form of love. It literally means to love God and others for the sake of God. In John 15:13 Jesus describes agape love to us: “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” He then goes on to personify this type of love by being crucified and dying for the forgiveness of our sins so that we may gain eternal life.

    The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that Jesus makes charity the new commandment. By loving his own "to the end," he makes manifest the Father's love which he receives. By loving one another, the disciples imitate the love of Jesus which they themselves receive. This is shown when Jesus says: "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love." And again: "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” THIS is charity!

    The fruits of charity are joy, peace, and mercy; Love or Charity is itself the fulfillment of all our works. There is the goal; that is why we run: we run toward it, and once we reach it, in it we shall find rest. (CCC 1822-1829)

    The Holy Rosary - Luminous Mysteries

    The Holy Rosary - Luminous Mysteries

    The Holy Rosary has come about over many centuries. There are very early traditions of the faithful praying and meditating on God through prayer beads. In the 13th century, Saint Dominic was a given a vision of our Blessed Mother where she instructed him on how to the pray the rosary. Then in the 20th century in Fatima, Portugal, our Lady instructed the children to add the 'O My Jesus' prayer to the end of each decade in order to pray for world peace. The Holy Rosary can be prayed in private or in a group. Its repetition and methodical pattern is meant to bring you into contemplative and meditative prayer.

    The Holy Rosary is THE weapon of choice in spiritual warfare and in striving to grow in holiness. Never forget the amazing power of our Mother's intercession. Learn more about the rosary http://bit.ly/3bi4sGy. God bless you! Find the full prayer below.
