Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:17 that Christ did not send him to baptize. Does this mean that baptism is not necessary for salvation? Karlo Broussard gives the reason why the answer is no and explains what Paul meant.
There are ALWAYS at least two deaths with each abortion. Sometimes it’s the death of the baby and the death of the mother. Other times it’s different…
The worst thing we, as human beings, can lose is not our job. Not our home. Not our friends. Not our self image. Not our health. Not our family. Not our hair. Not our good looks. Not our ability to speak. Not our hope. Not our ambition. Not our popularity. Not our talent. Not our influence. Not our reputation. Not our credibility.
The worst thing we can loose is our conscience because, while that may lead to the loss of all of the above, it will certainly lead to the loss of our soul.
And that is the only thing we cannot live without in eternity…
Virgin Immaculate, perfect lover of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, we ask thee to obtain for us the graces we need to become true adorers of our Eucharistic God. Grant us, we beg of thee, to know Him better, to love Him more, and to center our lives around the Eucharist, that is, to make our whole life a constant prayer of adoration, thanksgiving, reparation, and petition to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Amen.
Most Catholics are familiar with the Fatima Prayer given to Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco at Fatima. However, many Catholics are not aware that they received more prayers than just the “Fatima” or Decade prayer.
And then there are those of us who are familiar with some or all of these prayers, but don’t know where they originated.
Additionally, many are not aware that they were visited by an Angel the year before Our Lady appeared to them, and the the Angel also gave them two prayers.

The Pardon Prayer (Given by the Angel)
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for all those that do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee.
The Angel’s Prayer (Also given by the Angel)
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
The Fatima Prayer (After each decade of the Rosary)
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen.
The Eucharistic Prayer
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferentces by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
The Sacrifice Prayer (When offering up your suffering)
O Jesus, it is for the love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion of poor sinners [that I do this].
May 13 is the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of The Blessed Mother to the three children in Fatima.
This short video tells the story…
This video is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima to the three little shepherd children.
It is to tell the whole story to promote her message and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I pray the Rosary every day. Some days, it seems, it’s easier to work it in than others, so I’m always looking for ways to make sure I don’t miss out. I can always find a way, though, to get it done. No matter what I’m doing, I can always stop for a few minutes and pray a decade – I do that fairly often, actually.
Here are a few ways to pray the Rosary every day, even when you are hyper-busy. Found this on ChurchPop.
Marcus Talks with former Episcopalian Fr. Donald Calloway, former hippie and criminal…
Then he met Mary and through her, Jesus…
“If you have people like Fr Don Calloway coming to talk at these conventions they will never end – he is just fantastic!” This was the reaction of a person of the Baptist Christian Denomination who came to hear Father Calloway talk about his conversion to the Catholic Faith and his eventual ordination to the priesthood.

It occurred to me that, regarding my life on Earth, I’m going to be dead a lot longer than I’m going to be alive. And at my age, I’ve been alive a lot longer in the past than I will be from here on out, so why sweat the temporary stuff?
Why should I spend my time here pursuing the things that I’m not going to be able to take with me? Not that it’s not great to be comfortable, but why would I make those things the end all to be all?
The answer, of course, is that I wouldn’t.
I am grateful for all that The Lord has blessed me with, but I don’t want to be hung up on the earthly things. I would much rather concentrate on the “forever” things of eternity.
And now it occurs to me that, where eternity is concerned, I’m going to be alive a lot longer than I’m going to be dead.
Note to self: Adjust accordingly.
