"We have to become courageous Christians and seek out those who are the flesh of Christ. Poverty for us as Christians isn’t a philosophical or cultural or sociological category - no, poverty is a theological category. I would say it is perhaps the first category, because the Son of God humbled himself and became poor to walk along the road with us."
- Pope Francis
It can be really frustrating to pray and pray for something with no discernible results. In his homily today, Fr McGuffie talks about the real purpose of prayer, which is surrender to God’s will and closeness with God.
So if you’re praying and praying and nothing seems to happen, think again. Something is happening! But it’s happening in God’s time, not yours.
Please pray for our Orthodox Christian brothers in Ukraine! May God bless and protect the believers there and may the Most Holy Theotokos and the Saints help the people and the local Church! Our prayers are with you <3
Must have missed this… yes you should be able to get it since Kindle runs on an Android platform. Unfortunately we don’t have a native Kindle app, but I do know of some people who have side loaded it. Perhaps this article would be helpful: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2396276,00.asp
all good giving and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no alteration or shadow caused by change.
He willed to give us birth by the word of truth
that we may be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Pope explains Eucharist’s power
Praise is not just for charismatics, says Pope Francis ‘Come out of your shell’ and embrace spontaneity in prayer

I know many people have already written about this particular homily, but I confess I did a happy dance when I read about it, so I had to share. On Tuesday at one of his typical morning homilies at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis spoke about the fruitfulness of praise.
