With school starting, reach out to new people you see. Lots of people are homesick, are lonely, don’t know anyone. So be kind. Invite people to coffee. Be authentic to the people around you and be joyful. 
This next week I challenge you to reach out to someone new and spend time with them. I promise you it might change someone’s life.

(Mat 24:42-51)

Mat 24:42Karena itu berjaga-jagalah, sebab kamu tidak tahu pada hari mana Tuhanmu datang.

Mat 24:43Tetapi ketahuilah ini: Jika tuan rumah tahu pada waktu mana pada malam hari pencuri akan datang, sudahlah pasti ia berjaga-jaga, dan tidak akan membiarkan rumahnya dibongkar.

Mat 24:44Sebab itu, hendaklah kamu juga siap sedia, karena Anak Manusia datang pada saat yang tidak kamu duga." Mat 24:45"Siapakah hamba yang setia dan bijaksana, yang diangkat oleh tuannya atas orang-orangnya untuk memberikan mereka makanan pada waktunya?

Mat 24:46Berbahagialah hamba, yang didapati tuannya melakukan tugasnya itu, ketika tuannya itu datang.

Mat 24:47Aku berkata kepadamu: Sesungguhnya tuannya itu akan mengangkat dia menjadi pengawas segala miliknya.

Mat 24:48Akan tetapi apabila hamba itu jahat dan berkata di dalam hatinya:

Mat 24:49Tuanku tidak datang-datang, lalu ia mulai memukul hamba-hamba lain, dan makan minum bersama-sama pemabuk-pemabuk,

Mat 24:50maka tuan hamba itu akan datang pada hari yang tidak disangkakannya, dan pada saat yang tidak diketahuinya,

Mat 24:51dan akan membunuh dia dan membuat dia senasib dengan orang-orang munafik. Di sanalah akan terdapat ratapan dan kertakan gigi."

Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother, Many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.Yet you never despaired or lost faith.
With confidence, persistence and profound faith, you prayed daily for the conversion of your beloved husband, Patricius,and your beloved son, Augustine.
Grant me that same fortitude, patience and trust in the Lord.
Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, for (mention your petition here)

These days, the Roman Catholic Church is synonymous with child sexual abuse. We owe nobody an apology for saying this. It's the truth. Cases of child sexual abuse and subsequent cover-ups committed during the 20th and 21st centuries by Catholic priests, nuns, and members of the Roman Catholic Order have led to numerous allegations, investigations, trials and convictions. The abused include boys and girls, some as young as 3 years old, with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14. It is beyond imagination that these so-called men and women of God have molested innocent children in this widespread way. The abuse is a worldwide problem in the church. There aren’t accurate statistics to determine the number of children these pedophiles in the church have abused worldwide because of the extent. From 2001 to 2010, the Holy See, which serves as the central governing body of the Catholic Church, considered sex abuse allegations involving approximately 3,000 priests dating back up to fifty years. Cases worldwide reflect patterns of long-term abuse and of the church hierarchy regularly covering up reports of alleged abuse. In mid-February 2017, the commission issued a report revealing: “Catholic Church authorities made total payments of [AU]$276.1 million [US$213million] in response to claims of child sexual abuse received between 1 January 1980 and 28 February 2015, including monetary compensation, treatment, legal and other costs.” Of the 4,445 cases the church received between January 1980 and February 2015 in the country, the report said the church managed to identify 1,880 alleged perpetrators, who included 597 (32% ‘religious brothers,’ 572 (30%) priests, 543 (29%) lay people, and 96 (5%) religious sisters or nuns. According to the report, 90% of abusers were male while the abused were also mostly boys. 😴😴😴😴😴

Há um lugar que atrai meu coração, e faz meus pés mudarem sempre a direção
Se ali estou, me lanço, me derramo em adoração, na sala do trono
Ali eu sei, fortalecido estou, e ao descer do monte, agraciado eu vou
O santo altar, a realeza, a presença do Senhor, me levam a ir além, eu vou e quem me impedirá, se ao meu lado está o autor da minha fé?
Eu vou! A força Ele me dá, coragem pra enfrentar o que vier
Eu vou e crendo levarei a salvação aos meus, à minha família
E já não importa o grau a que eu cheguei
Eu vou seguir decididamente o amado rei...🎶❤🙏 (_repost @menina.demaria )

A shocking 900-page Pennsylvania grand jury report released Tuesday details decades of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests in Pennsylvania. The report says at least 300 “predator priests” molested more than 1,000 children since the 1950s, and leaders in the church covered up the crimes. NBC’s Anne Thompson reports for TODAY.

Thus says The Lord:
O #unholy #church of men, I take no pleasure in you. You are an #abhorrence to Me, your #faith is #dead, and the fruit of your doings brings forth #death, says The Lord. For you do not give heed to My words, nor do you obey My Commandments; My every statute you have torn asunder. You do always reject My Word; from My ways you are far removed. 
Behold, you have taken it upon yourselves to change MY Word and MY Commandments, teaching as #law the #doctrines and #traditions of men, which I hate, to the continual #blaspheming of My #spirit! How long shall I suffer you?! I can not endure all this #iniquity! You are #perverse, a church #overflowing with iniquity, #harlotries beyond measure! Your offerings are not accepted, all your supplications are rejected; behold, they are a foul #stench in My nostrils, a #rancid taste in My mouth! Therefore you must be purged, I must #vomit you out!

O unholy church of men, #mother of all #fornications, 
How long shall you tempt The Lord your God?!...
How long shall you bring before Me defiled offerings, 
Making supplications in the name of the dead?!...
How long shall you #deceive yourselves, as you continue 
To place your hope in those who have fallen asleep?!...
For I tell you the truth, even by all you say and do, 
Do you cause your people to #sin, even to crucify 
Their Savior again and again in their hearts.

Римско-католический храм пресвятого сердца Иисуса. ⛪
Всегда хотела в таком побывать 🙏 
Архитектура, выполненная в готическом стиле, приводит в восторг. 😍Строила храм община поляков(мои предки😜) в 1902 г., поэтому его ещё называют «польский костёл». 🧐

Thus says The Lord:  #Beware, O peoples of the #church called #mother. For she is a #harlot, a #false way, a #deceitful house filled with both great and subtle #deceptions. Be wary, rouse yourselves from this heavy sleep, and look upon the fruit of your doings. For you have been greatly misled, caught up in a faith which is dead; there is no life in it! For as it was written by My servant, so in like manner I now plead with you: Depart from the way of evil, from the man who speaks perverse things, from those who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perversity of the pagan, whose ways are crooked and who are devious in their paths. Be delivered from the #adulterous woman, from the #seductress who flatters with her words, who forsakes the husband of her youth and forgets the covenant of her God. For her house is sinking down to death, and all her paths lead to the dead.
Therefore thus says The Lord God, The Holy One of Israel, to all who have ears to hear: This #unholy church of men is a harlot! From the beginning she has been a #whore! Yet she would have all believe she is a #queen, even the true church and mother. Indeed, she has bore many #sons and #daughters, daughters who yet bear her likeness; and many sons who shall go to #perdition, false #fathers and #priests, who by their own authority take to themselves proselytes, who they then make twice as fit for destruction as themselves! Behold, deception is hidden within deception, as she continues to build up her sins toward Heaven.

Photos: (Unknown) Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican (Roma - Italy ) or simply St. Peter's Basilica is an Italian Renaissance church in Vatican City, the papal enclave within the city of Rome.Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome, St. Peter's is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic shrines. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world"and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom".Catholic tradition holds that the Basilica is the burial site of Saint Peter, chief among Jesus's Apostles and also the first Bishop of Rome. Saint Peter's tomb is supposedly directly below the high altar of the Basilica. For this reason, many Popes have been interred at St. Peter's since the Early Christian period, and there has been a church on this site since the time of the Roman emperor Constantine the Great. Construction of the present basilica, which would replace Old St. Peter's Basilica from the 4th century AD, began on 18 April 1506 and was completed on 18 November 1626.St. Peter's is famous as a place of pilgrimage and for its liturgical functions. The Pope presides at a number of liturgies throughout the year, drawing audiences of 15,000 to over 80,000 people, either within the Basilica or the adjoining St. Peter's Square.St. Peter's has many historical associations, with the Early Christian Church, the Papacy, the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-reformation and numerous artists, especially Michelangelo. As a work of architecture, it is regarded as the greatest building of its age.St. Peter's is one of the four churches in the world that hold the rank of Major Basilica, all four of which are in Rome. Contrary to popular misconception, it is not a cathedral because it is not the seat of a bishop; the Cathedra of the Pope as Bishop of Rome is in the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. #saintpeterbasilica
