The soul of a child is forever. If you want to see the face of Europe in years, barring a miracle, look to the faces of young Muslim immigrants. Islam has a future because Islam believes in children. Their world ends with them. But here, we still have time. And here, in this room, today, what can we start to do? Hell has been described in a lot of ways, from a soulless bureaucracy, to a furnace of fire, to a lake of ice. But I think C. Lewis put it best in one of his novels when he says that hell is noise. Silence is water in the desert of modern desire. God spoke to Elijah not in the majesty of a storm but in a small voice heard only in silence.
God is not absent from the world. We just make it impossible to hear him. Our bodies are part of our prayer. We can and we should pray anytime and everywhere.
A/CONF/13/Add Rapport de la CIPD, Additif (94/10/18)
But kneeling down in worship at some point in the day acknowledges that the God of Israel is the God who made the stars without number. Our humility in prayer is an act of justice. And wisdom, as I said earlier, is the framework of a fully human life. So we need to create silence. We need to pray. Television is not a channel for serious thought. And the internet, for all its advantages, is too often a source of isolation.
The point is: If we fill our heads with poison and junk, we make ourselves angry and dumb. Finally, we need to be skeptical about the world, while we also engage it with our faith. That means vigorously advancing our social ministries, which are vital expressions of Christian charity. It also means getting and staying involved politically. We can never build heaven on earth. But we can make this world at least a little more loving, free, merciful and just by our actions in the public square.
This is why the efforts of religious liberty groups like Becket Law and the Alliance Defending Freedom are so urgently important. And I hope those of you here today who have the blessing of financial resources will support them generously in their work. If you want to do something practical and urgently needed to advance the kingdom, helping them in their efforts is a very good place to start. I want to close with reasons for hope, and that leads me to two Scripture passages from the Easter season that struck me as meaningful as I started work on this talk for today: Acts and ; and John In the passage from Acts, Paul has traveled to Athens.
So he argued in the synagogue with the Jews and devout persons, and in the market place every day with those who chanced to be there. Some also of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers met him. Now all the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there spent their time in nothing except telling or hearing something new. Jews call him heretical. Pagans mock the resurrection and call him crazy.
But Paul persists. Even though he leaves Athens as a seeming failure and heads for Corinth, the seed of faith has been planted and eventually grows into a Church with deep roots. When the Spirit of truth comes he will guide you into all the truth. What we do need is to have confidence in the Lord and to give our hearts to the Father who loves us. The future is in his hands. A friend of mine was a student in France in at the Catholic University of the West. And one day her class visited a chateau in the Loire Valley. The docent took them into a room with an enormous stretch of hanging fabric, many yards across from one wall to the other.
And on the fabric were hundreds of ugly knots and tangles of stray thread in a chaos of confused shapes that made very little sense. And what they saw is the great Tapestry of the Apocalypse of St. John, the story of the Book of Revelation in 90 immense panels. So much of what we do seems a tangle of frustrations and failures. And this is why our lives matter. So have faith. Trust in the Lord.
And believe in his love. Thanks, and God bless you. The Jubilee Year in honor of the th anniversary of St. Lessons from Padre Pio on how to pray well Here, we offer some lessons from St. February 2, He could do this because he was always connected to the source: he ceaselessly quenched his thirst with Jesus Crucified. Pope Francis explains that Padre Pio taught, with his life, that prayer is a spiritual work of mercy, entrusting everything to God, the Father. It is a gift of faith and love. Prayer is like bread.
Prayer is the strength of the Church. Pope Francis explains that the heart of God is opened by prayer because He is a Father who cannot resist the voice of his children. Prayer is the recipe for joy The Holy Father, remembering St. Pio, teaches that constant prayer is a part of fighting the good fight. The pope then ended by declaring that the key to a joyful heart is prayer.
Padre Pio St. Pio was a Capuchin friar who dedicated his life to the salvation of souls. He was born in , joined the Capuchin order at the age of 15, and was ordained to the priesthood in On July 28, , he was sent to the friary at San Giovanni Rotondo, where he remained until his death.
This phenomenon would attract an endless procession of journalists and doctors. Above all, however, the stigmata attracted many of the faithful. Read more: Padre Pio bore the stigmata, but one secret wound was more painful than the others On February 5, , the relics of the famous Capuchin arrived at the Vatican to be presented for the veneration of the faithful for nearly a week, as part of the Jubilee of Mercy. Lundi le 24 juillet Excerpts from the Diary of Saint Faustina On one occasion, I saw Satan hurrying about and looking for someone among the sisters, but he could find no one.
I felt an interior inspiration to command him in the Name of God to confess to me what he was looking for among the sisters. And he confessed, though unwillingly, "I am looking for idle souls [cf. Let the toiling and tired souls rejoice. She is run off her feet, in a peculiarly modern way, for the proliferation of labor-saving devices has added so much to our temporal burden, and to the requirements for speed. The little buzzers are constantly going off, and we are enslaved by everything from our kettles to our cell phones. True, she is essential to the game, and is consistently returned to the center of it, but she is hardly appreciated in her own right.
Others take the glory. Even among women, others take the glory, and the primary achievement of feminism it seems to me has been to make women into inferior men, judging them by standards unmistakably masculine, then adding back functions unmistakably feminine such as having babies as mere pile-on.
Yet even the capacity to make such a joke proves the criticism valid. He does not deny that household work needs doing, or depreciate it. He Christ, the Church Fathers, all consecrated priests, and this bishop combined in persona Christi is saying that we must be Mary before we play Martha. This is not a hard saying, but hard to understand for the modern mind which is, after all, quite distracted, and does not pause to consider things, in the silence that is the condition for contemplation of any kind. We think, to be sure, but only on our feet, when the better part is to think first kneeling.
It is what makes modern domestic life so much resemble a situation comedy: In reality, Jesus seems to sketch the outlines of a spiritual pedagogy: we should always make sure to be Mary before becoming Martha. But my own gnawing counsels of perfection must retreat before the plain substance.
We must feed the poor, care for the ill, visit the prisoner, clean the environment, but these tasks are extrinsic to our sacramental core. First, we must actually be Christian, in conversation with Our Lord; and God speaks to us through silence. Later, in some of the most poignant passages of the book, the Cardinal directly confronts the question that most vexes the modern mind. Why does God remain silent in the presence of misery and evil; why does He allow the horror and suffering that falls on the just and the unjust alike?
Phrased this way, the question begins to answer itself. Though she seems to do nothing, in our agony, she is there.

Vendredi le 7 juillet Stunning story: Miraculous recovery attributed to Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati A young man's unexplained recovery may be the miracle that leads to the future saint's canonization In , Kevin Becker fell from the second floor of a house he shared with a couple of college roommates, fracturing his skull in five places and damaging every lobe of his brain.
After an emergency operation he lay stable but unresponsive for nine days. Less than three weeks after his injury he was wheeled to the door of the hospital, where he stood up, slung his bag over his shoulder, and walked to the car tossing a football with his brother. This is not the usual way. A week after his injury, the doctors were talking of putting him into a medically induced coma, a last-ditch effort. Days later he opened his eyes, and was soon speaking, standing, and walking normally. After Kevin left the hospital he went to physical rehab, and found that he was five steps ahead of the others there, including those who had been in recovery for six months to a year.
On October 11th he took a battery of cognitive tests, and completed them in just two hours rather than the usual six. He was cleared to return to college where he finished his degree; he now works making loans to small businesses. Again, this is not the usual way. I had the pleasure of hearing Kevin Becker speak about his experiences on October 29th of this year, at a celebration of the Year Jubilee of the Dominican Order. During his coma, he remembers waking up in the house he shared with his friends, and hearing someone downstairs.
I already have two roommates. They fought about it, as if they were brothers, but George was adamant. He encouraged him to be patient. Frassati, a Lay Dominican, died of polio in at the age of 24, after a life in which his family knew him mostly for his love of mountain climbing, and the poor of Turin knew him as their beloved friend and benefactor. He woke the next day. From the moment he woke, his studies became important to him, and his grades improved remarkably.
La lecture est donc un exercice externe. Its easiness. Its object. It is the substance of self-examination. The tap. At any moment, if I desire to know where I am, what is the state of my soul, what tone echoes within me I merely ask: where is my heart? By this question I seek solely to know what is the dominant disposition of my heart, which inspires and directs it, and keeps it as it were in its possession.
A number of impressions and yearnings and feelings throng about the heart: it is an unfathomable reservoir; but whatever the number and the nature of the dispositions, there is always one that is in an ascendancy. It is not always the same, the heart of man undergoes so many fluctuations! One feeling takes the place of another, one impression drives out another; but it is always one that holds first place, and gives direction to the heart and governs its activity.
That is the one, indeed, which gives the true tone of my soul. In order to seize it, I ask myself this simple question: where is my heart? This question causes me to cast a rapid glance into the innermost centre of my being, and I at once see the salient point; I give ear to the tone echoed by my soul, and immediately catch the dominant note. It is an intuitive proceeding, and is quite instantaneous. There is no need for intellectual enquiries, efforts of will, and ransacking the memory; I hear and see. It is a glance, in ictu oculi.
It is simple and rapid. A soul must be quite ignorant of its inner self, and quite unaccustomed to enter in to itself, if it does not experience this. Or else, on the contrary, it may be the love of God, the desire for sacrifice, the fervour kindled by some touch of grace, full submission to God, the joy of humility, etc. Whether it be good or bad, it is the main and dominant disposition that must be ascertained; for we must look at the good as well as the evil, since it is the state of the heart that it is important to know.
I must go directly to the mainspring, which sets all the wheels of the clock in motion. Sometimes it happens that this mainspring is a persistent and continuous disposition, such as bitterness or aversion.

But, at other times, it is some merely momentary impression, which, however, was strong enough to impress the heart for a considerable time with some characteristic impulse; such, for instance, as the generous acceptance of a suffering; it was the affair of a moment, yet it imparted something to the heart, which will set it in motion during one or several days.
In fact, the dominant disposition, by determining finally the impulses of my heart, is like a resultant of the powers of the other feelings, which are practically concentrated and summed up therein. Hence, strictly speaking, I might be satisfied with this essential glance; and by it I might strengthen the weak, heal the sick, bind up that which was broken, bring again that which was driven away, and seek for that which was lost. And it is done: I see. I correct and set it straight, if necessary: I humble myself and give thanks, if all is well.
And this I can do at any moment, and thousands of times; it is such a simple act! As a matter of fact, nothing escapes from it, since it grasps the centre of everything. Why need I worry about other details? I need not cut the branches off a tree, when it is down; nor need I follow the course of the streams, when I am at the source. When the water spouts forth in profusion from the host of little holes in the rose of a watering-pot, would it not be a tedious and troublesome matter to shut up each little hole one after the other in order to cut off the flow?
And if there were a tap lower down, enabling one to stop the flow by a single turn, would it not be stupid to tire oneself with trying to stop all the little holes? And that all the more, because there is the risk of their coming open again. He whose examination of conscience stops at details and outward things, is passing his time in stopping up the little holes The inward glance turns the tap To stop at details and at what is outward, is to remain at the circumference and to manoeuvre on the surface of the soul.
I go straight to the centre and take possession of my whole soul, when I cast this penetrating glance at my dominant disposition. Addressing the faithful and pilgrims from the window of his study in the Apostolic Palace, on the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, the pope reflected on how the Lord miraculously liberated the two Apostles from prison and persecution. If we turn to the Lord in the Sacrament of Penance, the pope said, he will liberate us interiorly through the power of his grace, and lift the weight we experience from sin.
Dear brothers and sisters, Good morning. The Fathers of the Church loved to compare the holy Apostles Peter and Paul to two columns, on which the visible construction of the Church rests. Both sealed with their own blood the witness they rendered to Christ through preaching and service to the nascent Christian community. The Book of the Acts of the Apostles cf. But he was miraculously saved so he could complete his evangelizing mission, first in the Holy Land and then in Rome, putting all his energy at the service of the Christian community. Paul, too, experienced hostility from which he was liberated by the Lord.
Sent by the Risen One into many cities to pagan peoples, he encountered strong resistance by those of his own religion and by the civil authorities. Writing to the disciple Timothy, he reflects on his own life and missionary journey, as well as on the persecutions he endured for the sake of the Gospel.
Both, through their personal and ecclesial experiences, show and tell us, today, that the Lord is always by our side. He walks with us; he never abandons us. Especially in time of trial, God extends his hand to us; he comes to our aid and liberates us from the threat of our enemies. But let us remember that our true enemy is sin, and the Evil One who urges us on to it. When we are reconciled with God, especially in the Sacrament of Penance, receiving the grace of forgiveness, we are freed from the chains of evil and alleviated from the weight of our errors.
Thus we can continue along of path as joyful heralds and witnesses of the Gospel, showing that we are the first to have received mercy. To the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles, we address our prayer, which today is especially for the Church in Rome and for this city which has Peter and Paul as patrons. May they obtain for [the Church and city] spiritual and material well being. May the goodness and grace of the Lord sustain the Roman people, that they might live in fraternity and harmony, making the Christian faith shine forth with the intrepid ardor of Saints Peter and Paul.
The saint who walked 3, miles to join the Jesuits Blessed Peter Kibe was a martyr in 17th-century Japan, but even among these heroes of the faith, he stands out. I wonder if there has ever been a Christian more determined than Blessed Peter Kibe, one of more than Japanese martyrs who have been raised to the altar.
Blessed Peter Kibe is such a one, a man for the ages and a dear friend of mine. Born of Japanese Christian parents in , Peter was raised in a country already hostile to the faith. Despite persecutions, Peter entered a Jesuit seminary with hopes of being ordained one day. Read more: My friends Joe and Vicki protected Jews from the Nazis Rather than accept this response, Peter made a private vow that he would continue to pursue a Jesuit vocation. Nothing daunted, Peter looked elsewhere. He sailed to Goa. When he found the doors closed there as well, it seemed time to set off for Rome.
On foot. When he arrived, Kibe became the first Japanese person ever to visit Jerusalem. He then made his way to Rome, convinced the ecclesial authorities of his qualifications, and was ordained a priest six months after arriving in Rome. Asked to make a two-year novitiate with the Jesuits before returning to Japan, Peter managed to convince his superior that there was no time to waste, that the Japanese people needed him immediately. This being the 17th century, though, nothing was ever immediate. It took him 14 months just to get to India.
When he finally made it to Macao, he was told that the government would allow no Christians to sail on their ships to Japan. Peter was then chased by pirates all the way to Siam, where he found the same difficulty. For two years, he tried to sail from Siam, then headed to Manila.
Still unable to find a ship that would take him to Japan, he built one. The boat was attacked by termites. Peter plugged the holes and set off. When the victims of the shipwreck pulled themselves together, they found that they were in the same spot from which St. Francis Xavier had launched his mission to Japan some 80 years earlier. With the zeal of Xavier whose canonization he had attended in Rome , Father Kibe arrived in Japan at last.
He spent 24 years trying to become a priest in Japan before he finally set foot on Japanese soil again, all the time knowing that he was headed towards torture and certain death. Kibe managed to minister for nine years under constant threat of death. When he was betrayed by one of his flock, he was brought before Fr.
Ferreira the famous apostate priest of Silence fame. Kibe implored Ferreira to return to the faith. Kibe was tortured beyond all reason. As he hung in the pit and other priests apostatized, Fr. He was beatified with companions, still only a small fraction of some 35, Christians killed in Japan between and We run from suffering; Kibe ran toward it. Blessed Peter Kibe, pray for us!
It surpasses the combined understanding of all men and angels. All the angels and all humans have emerged from the very depths of Your tender mercy. Mercy is the flower of love. God is love, and mercy is His deed. In love it is conceived; in mercy it is revealed. Everything I look at speaks to me of God's mercy.
Even God's very justice speaks to me about His fathomless mercy, because justice flows from love. It is my daily food. My whole soul listens intently to God's wishes. I do always what God asks of me, although my nature often quakes and I feel that the magnitude of these things is beyond my strength.
On that day, the suffering in my soul was more severe than ever before. From early morning, I felt as if my body and soul had separated. I felt that God's presence had penetrated my whole being; I felt all the justice of God within me; I felt I stood alone before God.
I thought: one word from my spiritual director would set me entirely at peace; but what can I do? However, I decided to seek light in holy confession. When I uncovered my soul to the priest,  he was afraid to continue hearing my confession, and that caused me even greater suffering. When I see that a priest is fearful, I do not obtain any inner peace. So I have decided that only to my spiritual director will I open my soul in all matters, from the greatest to the least, and that I will follow his directions strictly.
But this is not what I want to speak about.

I want to tell about a strange thing that happened to me for the first time. When the confessor started talking to me, I did not understand a single word. After the confession, I meditated on Jesus' terrible Passion, and I understood that what I was suffering was nothing compared to the Savior's Passion, and that even the smallest imperfection was the cause of this terrible suffering. Then my soul was filled with very great contrition, and only then I sensed that I was in the sea of the unfathomable mercy of God. Oh, how few words I have to express what I am experiencing!
I feel I am like a drop of dew engulfed in the depths of the bottomless ocean of divine mercy. I understood this [need of] dependence. Samedi le 24 juin Pope Francis speaks to priests - by Bishop Robert Barron The priest celebrating Mass is speaking, in a sense, on behalf of the entire material creation. I write these words from the Nuremore Hotel in Monaghan, Ireland, where I am conducting a retreat for the good priests of the Dublin Archdiocese. Many of the priests who are making the retreat are retired, and it is edifying to see so many who have bravely borne the heat of the day.
Do say a prayer for them. Allow me, in the course of this brief article to say just a few words about each one. The Christian faith is not a philosophy or a social theory or an ideology, but rather a living relationship with Jesus. Therefore, I have told the priests of Dublin, make Christ the center of your lives and let every aspect of your life and ministry revolve around your friendship with the Lord.
The third motif I am exploring is preaching, which Pope Francis emphasizes time and again when he addresses priests and seminarians. The pope once remarked that everyone suffers from preaching, the priests from having to give sermons and the faithful from having to listen to them! If he is simply sharing bland spiritual truisms, he is not really preaching. Pope Francis has rung the same bell in his insistence that the Church must go out to the periferia, to the margins both economic and existential. He offers a funny and wise commentary on the famous scene from the book of Revelation in which Jesus stands at the door and knocks.
The fifth topic is perhaps the interpretive key to the Francis papacy, namely, mercy. The Church, he has memorably commented, is like a field hospital, where those deeply wounded by our postmodern society come to be treated. Misericordia a suffering heart is therefore prerequisite number one for those who would aspire to serve in that treatment center.
Whatever else the Church says and does, I told the Dublin presbyterate, must return to, and be conditioned by, the attitude of mercy. What Francis accomplishes in Laudato Si is the placing of the Christian life into a properly cosmic context, and this brings him close to all of the great pre-modern figures in Christian spirituality and theology.
I have shared with the priests of Dublin the ancient notion that the priest celebrating Mass is speaking, in a sense, on behalf of the entire material creation. This explains why pre-modern Churches, such as the great Gothic Cathedrals, were decorated, inside and out, with images of plants, animals, sun, moon, stars, and planets. Curiously, an excessive anthropocentrism has actually undermined our attempts to evangelize the contemporary culture. Again, please pray for the priests of the Archdiocese of Dublin, and indeed for all priests, as we strive to fulfill our mission.
Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death When they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between my Father and the dying person, not as the Just Judge but as the Merciful Savior Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from my infinite mercy.
I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will. Jesus Said: "I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul.
In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world - mercy triumphed over justice. My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant.
I claim veneration for My mercy from every creature, but above all from you, since it is to you that I have given the most profound understanding of this mystery". Mardi le 6 juin The still journey - Le voyage immobile : Marthe Robin The still journey " The heart of man, it is said, is measured by the welcoming he gives to suffering, for it is in him the imprint of someone other than himself Even when suffering comes out of ourselves to enter with its penetrating sting into the consciousness, it is always in spite of the spontaneous wish and the primitive impulse of the fullness of the will.
However predictable it may be, so resigned in advance that one offers himself to her blows, so avid, so enamored that one can be of its austere and vivifying charm, it nevertheless remains a foreigner and an importune, it is always different from what we expected, and under its reach, the very one who confronts it energetically, who desires and loves it, cannot at the same time prevent himself from trembling at its approach.
Suffering kills something from us to put back something there that is not us. And that is why it reveals to us this scandal of our freedom and of our reason: we are not what we want to be, and to want all that we are, all that we must be, we must understand, that we accept its lesson and its benefits. Thus suffering is in us like a divine seed, like the grain of wheat that must die before germinating, it is the basis for a fuller oeuvre work. Who has not suffered of a thing, neither knows it, nor loves it. The sense of pain is to reveal to us what escapes knowledge and selfish will, it is to be the way of effective love, because it detracts us from ourselves and of our human tendencies, to give us our brothers and to give us to all.
For suffering does not hope in us for its divine effect without an active and pure concurrence on our part. It is an ordeal because it forces the secret dispositions of the will to manifest themselves. Breaking the equilibrium of an indifferent life, it allows us to choose between this personal feeling which leads us to withdraw into ourselves by violently excluding any intrusion, and this goodness which opens up to the fertile sadness and to the seeds which the great waters of trial carry.
Support me, O Jesus. Here below, the pain never ends; when it has bruised the body and the heart, it bruises the soul; when it has bruised the heart, it again bruises the soul and the body. It is the spring that raises from the earth, it makes the soul celestial. God inclines towards it to sustain it, and the angel of the holy hopes descends to strengthen and console it ".
Elle tue quelque chose de nous pour y mettre quelque chose qui n'est pas nous. Mercredi le 31 mai A mystic from Poland and her conversations with Jesus Local bishop gives permission for publication of Alicja Lenczewska's conversations with Jesus. Now, the bishop of Szczecin, Poland, has authorised the publication of the notes from these conversations.
But Lenczewska was born only on Dec. With the War ended in , they moved to Szczecin, where Alicja completed primary and high school. Despite the hard times, her mother ensured the religious upbringing of the children, making sure they always attended Sunday Mass and prayed together daily. When Alicja graduated from high school, she started to work as a teacher in the village of Bana. Before long, she was promoted to the position of school inspector in Gryfino. Around this time, she became a member of the Communist party. As she later admitted, at that time her life was at variance with the teaching of the Church.
Lenczewska earned an MA in Pedagogy in Gdansk and between and she worked as a high school teacher of Home Economics and Mechanics in Szczecin. Losing her mother was traumatic for Alicja, but her sorrow led her, along with her brother, to become involved with the Renewal in the Holy Spirit. She began to discover Jesus and soon realized she wished to dedicate herself to Him. A retreat in Gostyn in marked the beginning of an astonishing series of graces: During Communion, she was granted the gift of conversations and mystical meetings with Jesus. This gift continued from to , until her death.
She recorded the spiritual advice received and the contents of her conversations with Jesus in two texts, Testimony [Swiadectwo] and A Word of Instruction [Slowo pouczenia]. Moreover, He warned against abusive reception of Holy Communion and its desecration. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon.
