Micaela at California to Korea who offers this great meme at the beginning of each month, with a short list of Three Reasons I Love Catholicism...
1) The Sacred Heart of Jesus
When anxiety, fear, sorrow, and loneliness infringe upon my peace of mind and soul, I fly to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I place everything that bothers me into His pierced side and He burns all my troubles into ash within the fire of His Holy Love. Then He gently draws me into His Sacred Heart as well and warms my soul with peace. Nothing can hold me back and I can conquer the challenges of this world knowing that I am always held within the love of His Most Sacred Heart.
2) The Holy Mass
I've gotten myself into the habit of attending Mass, not just on Sunday, but nearly every day of the week. Joining with the community of Catholics at Mass, my prayer is strengthened and my soul is soothed. Listening to the Word of God and holding on to a small part of it to ponder and pray with throughout the day, watching as a simple piece of bread and cup of wine is converted into the very Body and Blood of my Savior and then receiving Him into my own miserable body in a Kiss of Love, is powerful beyond belief. I can't imagine life without the Mass, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to attend so often.
3) The Morning Offering
Sometimes it can be difficult to keep the command to "pray without ceasing." The Morning Offering is such a simple way to pray always even when I am preoccupied with the busy activities of the day. Starting each morning with a few words of prayer and then calling to mind all of those people and situations that are close to my heart as well as remembering Pope Francis and all of his intentions, I give it all to God and my day is covered in prayer. Simplicity!!! I am so grateful to my friend, Fr. Jim Kubicki, SJ and the Apostleship of Prayer for promoting this easy way of life. Visit this link to learn more.
