St. Simeon of Jerusalem Feast Day February 18th Likely son of St. Cleophas and cousin to Jesus who grew up alongside him in Nazareth. After St. James, bishop of Jerusalem, was martyred in the year 62, St. Simeon is believed to have led the people, and he responded to a divine message to take the Christian people out of Jerusalem before the destruction of the city in 70 AD. As an old man he was tortured and crucified for his Christian beliefs. .... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #christian #catholic #february #saints #saint #simeon #jerusalem #holyland #temple #romans #holy #holiness #earlychurch #apostle #apostles #israel #christ #church

This guy. He loves garbage, or in Mozart-speak, it’s “dar-badge.” I want to tell you all about dar-badge. This week is his fall break from public school, but all 5 siblings are at the homeschool hybrid for the day. Papi has flown away somewhere for work so the two of us are alone. He is following me around the house, sniffing his ABC’s and collecting garbage. When parents are faced with a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome, they will never tell you this. You will hear all of the reasons Down Syndrome is hard, a struggle, a battle with health and developmental delays. No one may EVER TELL YOU ABOUT dar- badge. At just shy of 7 years old and with Down syndrome, this guy has chores. He helps with garbage and he as been capable of it for months. And not just that! He helps rinse and load dishes. He puts on his own shoes and socks. He can feed the cats. His speech will take awhile. May of his developmental skills are definitely delayed, however, many are close to o track fo a 6 year old. Not only is he capable, he does most of his work with a level of joy that will change the trajectory of my day and brighten the atmosphere of our home for everyone. Let me tell you, THAT is developmentally advanced beyond any of his older siblings, for sure. When you see someone with Down Syndrome being celebrated for something developmentally normal and treated as an anomaly because they are capable, I challenge you to remember this. They. Are. All. Capable. That person with Down Syndrome that you are cheering on is amazing, but they also benefit from a certain privilege. They. Were. Born. In the USA my son is one of TWO. Two out of ten children with Down Syndrome are given the opportunity to be born and to prove to this world just how capable each of them or ANY of them can be. Mozart is here sharing his normal today, to stand up for the other eight. And we are going to keep doing it. He was not a flawed clump of cells to be tossed aside for an extra chromosome. Mozart is no Garbage. Down Syndrome should not be a death sentence.

9 years ago today, the FBI and Pennsylvania Police Department raided Kermit Gosnell’s abortion facility. Gosnell’s crimes were ignored for 3 decades. He was later found guilty of 237 crimes including the death of three babies who were born alive, the manslaughter of Karnamaya Mongar who was a victim of these crimes, as well as hundreds of abortion law violations and illegal third-term abortions. TODAY I will be donating 30% OF ALL PROCEEDS to CSUF STUDENTS FOR LIFE. These proceeds will greatly support the growth of @csufstudentsforlife so that they can educate young people of the violence of abortion, transform our culture, and develop a strong pro-life movement on campus. Tune in to Students for Life of America who will be hosting a Live Q & A from CSUF with the filmmakers of the Gosnell movie tonight at 6PM PST.

Around 4,500-5,000 Priests Currently Celebrate the Traditional Mass Around the World (1) Around 760 priests who belong to the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) and religious communities friendly to it. (2) Around 600 priests from those communities previously called "Ecclesia Dei" (that is, those established regularly following the motu proprio Ecclesia Dei). (3) Around 130 priests from religious communities that were never under the authority of the now-defunct "Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei" (for instance, the priests belonging to Fontgombault and its daughter-houses, or Norcia, etc). (4) At least 3,000 diocesan priests (maybe up to 5,000, if one includes those who are very cautious because of their local bishops) who celebrate it regularly, even if not exclusively, including 1,000 at least in the United States: this is the Summorum Pontificum group, by far the largest.

How to forgive anyone.⁣ ⁣ We don’t necessarily feel forgiveness... we choose it. And yet our emotional memory is often firmly linked to our choice. If it wasn’t, perhaps we could forgive anyone.⁣ ⁣ Sometimes the body needs to make the first step to lead the soul... just as we genuflect toward the tabernacle even when our heart and head are not in it. Our actions, done as an act of faith, help return us to a place of belief...⁣ ⁣ Click through the link in my bio for the full article.⁣ ⁣ #howtoforgive #catholic #emotionalmemory #forgiveness #virtue #mercy #divinemercy #spiritualmotherhood

☩ We have never been looking for quantity, the values and virtues of knighthood are not for every Roman Catholic man, quite the opposite. ☩ Not even every Roman Catholic soldier is destined to walk the tightrope of necessary devotion to become a seeker of the Grail. ☩ "Crawling the razors edge over the abyss", this is the symbol that the poet uses to show the nature of the elitism required for the quest ahead of us. ☩ The majority today can barely understand what is required of them to be saved, let alone the anti-intellectualism required to ACT and break out on the path up the mountain towards heroic sainthood. ☩ #romancatholic #military #catholic #catholicchurch #tradition #traditionalist #catholictradition #traditionalcatholic #crossfit #powerlifting #strongman #militaryfitness #patriot #hybridathlete #hybridfitness #fortress #fortressfit #fortressfitness #proarisetfocis #seekthegrail #getthegrail #grailquestexercises

Santa Muerte, A Story of how to found life within Death: Growing up in a predominantly Christian family, I learned that in the Bible, Jesus was sent by Yahweh to defeat spiritual Death, the decay of the human soul by giving his flesh and blood for us. However, Death comes in many forms with many different meanings. Every day we experience death within ourselves whether it be the death of an old habit, a flaw within yourself, or even the loss of a loved one. With Death, comes a new beginning and new life and a new start. I'm not saying to worship death, if you read the Bible worshipping anything other than Yahweh is considered idolatry. However, it is important to be mindful of Death and to realize the inevitable. And that is that we aren't going to be alive forever. That every day we die by changing a part ourselves, whether that be a small change or a big change. Death can be a wonderful thing because without Death, life cannot exist. However, Death can be an extremely painful experience filled with anguish and agony. That is why I turned to Santa Muerte as a devotee, because the Catholic Church fails to realize the inevitability of Death and that birth and Life does not come from nowhere. #santamuerte #santisimamuerte #christian #christianity #catholic #catholicism #religion #religious #spiritual #spirituality #dead #orthodox #jesus #jesuschrist #god #yahweh #saint #saintdeath #death #lasantamuerte

The Baptism of the Lord – Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan River⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Scripture⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Matthew 3:13-17 – Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. John tried to prevent him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?” Jesus said to him in reply, “Allow it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed him. After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened [for him], and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ~thegregorian.org⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ /// ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thedaughtersofmary #marianconsecration #ourlady #virginmary #blessedmother #rosary #praytherosary #catholic #catholicconnect #catholicchurch #catholicwomen #catholicwoman #blessedisshe #bissisterhood #catholicblogger #catholicblog #catholiclifestyle #catholiclife #faithblogger #catholicism #catholicwriter #faith #catholicconvert #religiousart #catholiccreatives #catholicmom #catholicfamily #catholicfaith #romancatholic #catholicart

⛪📕 MASS READINGS for February 18, 2018 ✝🙏🏻 (Monday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 335) • 1st READING: Book of Genesis 4:1-15, 25 • PSALM 50:1 AND 8, 16BC-17, 20-21 • HOLY GOSPEL of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 8:11-13 The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him. He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.” Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore. #catholic #catholicism #católico #katolik #proudcatholic #catholicchurch #romancatholicchurch #christian #christianity #Christ #Jesus #JesusChrist #religion #religious #faith #amen #godblessamerica #godbless #saints #bible #gospel

How does this empty square make you feel? No, but really… . Why does this simple white square make us squirm inside as we scroll by? Why do we feel the the constant need for content, for noise, for perpetual words & action? . Just a little food for thought this Monday morning 😉. . #livetodaywellco
