I get caught up in the business and distractions of life and relationships resulting in fraught emotion that directs my conscience and consciousness away from Him – that I know to be Truth; and I choose to rely on myself alone. This is a mistake I make again and again.
I thank God for His Wisdom and Mercy in providing for me, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, so that I may take up my journey on the path He has set before me with Him as my companion and guide.
This quote redirected me to examining my Godly attitudes and I will be aspiring to understand and develop these virtues in the coming year. It’s going to be front and centre in everything I think and do.
Read Colossians 3:12-14

3 Do nothing from kselfish ambition or lconceit, but in mhumility count others more significant than yourselves.

And above all these put on LOVE, which binds everything together in perfect HARMONY. “

One perfect gift for Christmas sorted…
This version of ‘Mary did you know’ is so uplifting. I’m definitely buying this one to add to my collection of this song.
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you.
Mary did you know that your baby boy will make a blind man see?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the mute will speak, the praises of the lamb.
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am.

Share this sign as a sign of solidarity with the Christians in Iraq
Just in case you have come across this sign on social media sites and are not sure what it represents I thought I’d post it tonight in support of Christians in Mosul who are being crucified, murdered, tortured and forced out of Iraq for being Christian.The Pope has spoken out in support of these Christians, seemingly ‘forgotten’ by the Western leaders. Read articles here and here to understand the wider picture of the atrocities unfolding so far from us here in the West.

First read about it on the xt3 website:-
Suor Cristina was quick to thank God for her victory and recited an ‘Our Father’ prayer. “I want Jesus to come in here!”
Her finale competitor tried his luck singing ‘Stairway To Heaven’, but there was no getting past Sister Cristina Scuccia’s habit and crucifix. Suor Cristina was quick to thank God for her victory and recited an ‘Our Father’ prayer. “I want Jesus to come in here!” said the 25-year-old, who was dressed in the black shoes and ankle-length black skirt she has worn throughout the competition. “My presence here is not up to me, it’s thanks to the man upstairs!” said Suor Cristina after winning out against a 28-year-old long-haired hard rocker.
Suor Cristina has won a record contract with Universal but has hinted she doesn’t want a musical career. “I’m not here to start a career, but because I want to impart a message,” she said, adding that she was following Pope Francis’s calls for a Catholic Church that is closer to ordinary people.” The humble nun shot to fame in recent months, with her audition performance of Alicia Keys’s ‘No One in March’ getting more than 50 million views on YouTube.
Suor Cristina has already sung alongside Kylie Minogue and has also received an endorsement from actress Whoopi Goldberg – the star of the 1990s comedy ‘Sister Act’ where she is a singer playing a nun. But Suor Cristina still defined herself as a “humble servant” and ascribed her sudden success to a “thirst for joy” among television viewers.
