Hello, my fellow Catholics,
I want to encourage each and every one of you, as we are living in this time in an era of heresy, where the devil is around nearly every corner, prowling, waiting for us to fall into his traps. We need to be encouraged to grow in Christ and to, in effect, “put on the full armor of God” on a daily basis, by living our lives in accord with His will.
First and foremost, I encourage each of you to receive the Sacraments often. Receive Christ in the Blessed Sacrament often. Remain in a state of grace by enjoying the sacrament of Confession weekly. The Sacraments are our number one priority as Catholics, because in them, we truly commune with Christ as the Bridegroom of the Church.
After the Sacraments, strengthen your spiritual life. Always wear the Brown Scapular. It is the sign of our salvation and, as Our Lady promised, “anyone who dies wearing this scapular shall not suffer eternal fire” That is a promise from the Blessed Mother. By having this devotion, we will not suffer hell. After the Brown Scapular, pray the rosary often. It doesn’t matter if you are not able to pray all fifteen mysteries (one complete Rosary) in a day, but at least pray a chaplet of it (the traditional five decade rosary beads.) The rosary is soooo important and is our greatest weapon against heresy.
I WANT TO PROPOSE SOMETHING TO YOU. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A ROSARY, EMAIL ME AT CPPXII@GMAIL.COM AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO SEND ONE TO YOU WITH INFO ON HOW TO PRAY IT.
After an increased spiritual life, grow intellectually as well. Spend time and dive into Sacred Scripture. Meditate on the words within, and let them be engrained upon your heart. Study the writings of the Saints. I love St. Louis de Montfort a lot as well as St. Padre Pio. Imitate the devotion of the Saints, and we can live as saints ourselves. The number one saint book I recommend would be The Imitation of Christ which perfectly synthesizes the spiritual life and how to completely be transformed by Christ in our lives. Read St. Francis de Sales book “Introduction to the Devout Life.” Study the writings of the Church as well through the Councils and the traditional Catechisms.
May God bless you through these simple tips. If you have ANY QUESTIONS please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
