The son who said no, but changed his mind. The son who said yes, but never went.

thehungrycatholic:

Been saving this since I went to vigil Mass last night:

Fr. Joe says at the end of his homily: “So which son should we aspire to be like? The truth is neither. There is a third child, not a son but a daughter, who from the beginning said “Yes,” who held true and let God’s will be done in her life. Let us ask for her intercession, and seek to follow her example of obedience and devotion.”

I almost expected a mic drop.

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

'I heart being a catholic' what they usually mean is 'I love trying to enforce my religious belief onto people'.

clearly someone has a poor grasp of the english language, but that’s okay…..God loves you anyway

This is probably the dumbest Catholic hate ask I’ve seen yet.

"I heart potatoes!"

"STOP FORCING POTATO ADMIRATION ON THOSE OF US WHO DO NOT LIKE SPUDS"

Yes. Expressing pride or fondness is oppressive now. You are required to be spiteful and ashamed at all times. It is law.

I happen to love potatoes so much I just want to be a witness to my love of potatoes not force you to eat them

Have you accepted potato in your life?

Hi would you like to take a moment to learn about The great and mighty potato?

Who needs the Flying Spaghetti Monster? Potato is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

lmao!!   Potato-Tumblr has a strong and mighty following, I see 

Definitely! Anyone read the Pope-tato’s latest spudcyclical?

potato-of-divine-mercy - look what you started!

*in Oscar winning voice*um…i also want to thank my church, the Lord, the Lord God….and the silly anon who provided us all a good laugh today

"It is written: ‘Man cannot live on bread alone, but on a healthy diet of potatoes.’ "

And follow guidance of our Papa

He’s such a spud-muffin

I am constantly put to shame at the reality that while the Magi may have traveled more than thousands of miles, journeying hours upon hours, just to find the King of the Universe and offer him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, I still struggle to find the motivation to hop out of bed and drive the 15 or so miles to visit the same King of the Universe and offer him the mere gift of myself on a daily basis.

Retreat!

Just got back tonight from CCM’s fall retreat! It was so good and very much needed.

It was definitely the busiest retreat I have ever been part of, but I also saw so much fruit come out of it that all the hard work was completely worth it. 

I gave my witness on Friday night, and I think it went very well. I was also on the skit team and clean-up/set-up crew. Now that I am in my third year with CCM it is nice to be able to really give back and help bring a great experience to the newer students. I truly appreciated the chances I had to serve this weekend. 

I also took a lot of time this retreat to really reflect on my friendships and the amazing family I have in this community. I am so incredibly thankful for them. There are so many people in CCM who have had a huge impact on my faith. And I have met some of my absolute closest friends here. I couldn’t be more thankful.

God is good!

Public school district orders teachers to stop saying "boys and girls" and use gender-inclusive "purple penguins" instead

This is yet another reason why my kids will never attend a public school. A Nebraska public school district is instructing teachers to stop using “binary” gender expressions like “boys and girls” and instead use “transgender friendly” expressions like “purple penguins.”

Seriously, you are not…

So CCM’s fall retreat is this weekend! (yay!)

So far I am surviving the week pretty well. I was pretty sure that I would be ball of stress by now, but so far so good!

I am pretty sure I am only doing so well at the moment because I decided to skip a number of classes this week to give myself more time. I skipped yesterday so I could spend that time studying for my financial accounting midterm. I also didn’t go to my class this morning and tomorrow one of my classes is canceled because UCF loves football more than academics. I’m not attending the game though. 

I still have to take a quiz before retreat, but it looks like the rest of my school work in under control now. 

I am also helping with some behind the scenes stuff for retreat. And I am helping with both skits for retreat. And I am giving a witness on Friday, so I have to prepare for that. 

Plus I still had others duties this week as CCM’s social chair, promotional assistant, and Students for Life president.

It is seriously a miracle that I am not in a stress induced coma right now. 

Pray that this retreat will bring me some much needed relaxation and peace!

"I will pray for you" is the sweetest thing that someone can say to you. It shows that, that person cares, they have affection for you and most important: they talk to God about you.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



They were also bullied by Planned Parenthood to continue supporting them financially. Komen doesn’t have my support. Give local, guys.

It’s really weird trying to explain the differences between Catholicism and other branches of Christianity to people who aren’t religious because it ultimately ends up, “Well this is Catholic, this is Catholic classic, this is Catholic-lite, this is diet Catholic, this is new taste less calories not as popular Catholic, and this is I can’t believe it’s not Catholic.”

So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.
