: That is so exciting! If you wouldn't mind, I'm not sure if you have heard, but there is a Catholic couple Eric and Sarah who have 4 children, with one in the womb. Sarah got attacked by black jackets or some type of bee/hornet and had an allergic reaction and is currently on life support. If you could just lay that at Our Lady's feet, for healing of the hearts of their family and friends because they are starting their goodbyes. I'm sorry this is so depressing but they could really use prayers!

I haven’t heard of them but, surely I will put this intention at Our Lady’s feet!
Prayers need over here, so if you don’t mind, take some minutes of your time and pray for this family.
Sarah has actually passed away.
in fact, her funeral was today. please do keep praying for her family as well as the repose of her soul and the soul of her unborn child, Cecilia
if you’d also like to donate to the family, you can do so here and here
If you’re anything like me, don’t you often wish that God would just “work His magic” with your heart and circumstances? But wouldn’t that be so contradictory to His relational nature that engages us through every part of the process? His ultimate purpose is to glorify Himself through building intimacy with you, and He often does this through seasons of struggle. You’re not alone in the valley. It is where He most readily strips you of your ability to “hold it together” or “power through.” He allows difficulty so you have no option but to depend fully on His faithfulness and hold tight to His promises.

If you want to know about God, there is only one way to do it: get down on your knees. You can make His acquaintance by investigation, but you can win His love only by loving. Most people who deny God do not do so because their reason tells them there is no God, for how could reason witness against Reason? Their denial is rather because of wishful thinking. They feel they would be happier if there were no God, for then they could do as they pleased. Think a little less about whether you deserve to be loved by Him; He loves you even though you are not deserving. It is His love alone that will make you deserving. Most of us are unhappy because we never give God a chance to love us; we are in love only with ourselves.

What they say: I don’t agree with their lifestyle, but I love them anyway.
What they Mean: I am a bigot who believes you’ll burn in hell for taking it up the butt but I don’t want to seem all michelle bachmann-y.

The Turtle Moves: Christians
No, fr33lance you are sadly mistaken. It grieves me to know that so many believe this lie. We DO love them anyway. Every person is made in the image of God and is worthy of love and respect.
“They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.” (Catechism 2358)
As for burning in hell, that is reserved for ALL of us who have seriously sinned against God with no remorse, regardless of our sexuality.
"Hell is the ultimate consequence of sin itself, which turns against the person who committed it. It is the state of those who definitively reject the Father’s mercy, even at the last moment of their life." - St. John Paul II
God calls ALL of us to repentance.
Anonymous: So lately I've been really tempted to kiss a boy. I'm 21 and I've never dated, and I'm just curious and I'm not sure if that;s a really bad thing of wanting to do that? but at the same time i feel like i'd regret it. prayer for me so i don't do anything rash.
It is definitely not sinful to kiss before marriage, but if you’re talking full-on making out, it usually includes *hands* and that can go south really fast.
But yeah, I’m 21/never dated/never kissed either so I’m not much help haha.
