Santo Agostinho, ao se referir a um poeta, que chamou ao amigo de “metade da sua alma”, exprime sobre a relação profunda de amizade. Chega a dizer que “sentiu” que sua alma e a de seu amigo não eram mais que uma em dois corpos. Uma forma simbólica para falar da união de uma verdadeira amizade, em que não se quer viver pela metade por ausência do amigo.
A amizade é uma relação de alma para alma, visando sempre a caridade em Deus, pois não deve ser um relacionamento de interesses egoístas, mas de gratuidade. Porque é uma preciosidade, já que, um “amigo fiel é poderoso refúgio, quem o descobriu, descobriu um tesouro.” (Eclesiástico 6,14). Uma forma de viver os ensinamentos de Santo Agostinho sobre a amizade é ter claro em nossos relacionamentos, que só se consegue ser amigo de verdade, quem é amigo de Deus.
The Catholic story of Kobe Bryant
While Bryant’s stats can be recited by many, few know about the role his Catholic faith played in helping him through one of his darkest hours.
Born in Philadelphia, Kobe Bryant was raised in a Catholic household and even spent some of his youth in Italy. Drafted into the NBA at the age of 17, he eventually married Vanessa Laine at St. Edward Roman Catholic Church in Dana Point, California. Two years later they had their first child. Bryant was at the top of his game and everything seemed to be heading in the direction of his dreams.
Then he made a big mistake.
In 2003, Kobe Bryant was accused of raping a woman in his hotel room, while he was in Colorado for knee surgery. He admitted having sex with the woman but denied rape. A judge eventually dropped the charges, but the woman went on to file a civil lawsuit against Bryant that was settled outside of court. In the midst of it all, he issued a public apology.
The incident had major consequences. In 2011, his wife filed for divorce.
Yet during one of the darkest moments of his life, Kobe Bryant turned to his Catholic faith. In an interview with GQ in 2015 he explained: “The one thing that really helped me during that process — I’m Catholic, I grew up Catholic, my kids are Catholic — was talking to a priest. It was actually kind of funny: He looks at me and says, ‘Did you do it?’ And I say, ‘Of course not.’ Then he asks, ‘Do you have a good lawyer?’ And I’m like, ‘Uh, yeah, he’s phenomenal.’ So then he just said, ‘Let it go. Move on. God’s not going to give you anything you can’t handle, and it’s in his hands now. This is something you can’t control. So let it go.’ And that was the turning point.” After some rough years, Kobe Bryant reconciled with his wife, and they remain married to this day. Together they have founded the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation (KVBFF), which is dedicated to, among other things, helping young people in need, encouraging the development of physical and social skills through sports and assisting the homeless. #Kobe#kobebryant#catholic#christian#ripkobe

Become a spiritual child of Padre Pio!
O Saint Padre Pio,
holy bearer of the Wounds of Christ,
accept us this day as your spiritual
sons and daughters and keep us
always on the narrow path
by your intercession.
And do thou, O our Spiritual Father,
stay there at the Gates of Heaven until
all of your spiritual children have entered

Through Christ our Lord,
Dear Padre Pio, I recall your promise to the Lord, “Lord, I will stand at the gates of heaven until I see all my spiritual children have entered.”Encouraged by your gracious promise, I ask you to accept me as a spiritual child and to intercede for my prayer requests…(Here state your petitions)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
Santa Ângela Merici foi uma religiosa italiana, fundadora da Companhia de Santa Úrsula. Viveu durante os séculos XV e XVI, na época em que Lutero ganhava influência com a Reforma. Nasceu em uma família pobre de camponeses, muito religiosos. Depois de perder os seus familiares, entrou em um convento, a Terceira Ordem de São Francisco de Assis.
A santa não tinha recebido formação quando criança, mas isso não a impediu de aconselhar doutores, sacerdotes e políticos. Recebeu o dom do Espírito Santo, depois de entregar-se a Deus.
Santa Ângela notava o perigo que os reformistas apresentavam, e considerava importante que as pessoas jovens recebessem uma educação, que as pudesse livrar dos vícios que eram sustentados pelas correntes heréticas. Fundou, com essa finalidade, uma comunidade que homenageava Santa Úrsula, e através da qual organizou grupos de ensino do catecismo, bem como formação às mães, para que os dogmas não fossem esquecidos nas famílias.
"St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was able to understand that the love of Christ and human freedom are intertwined, because love and truth have an intrinsic relationship. The quest for truth and its expression in love did not seem at odds to her; on the contrary she realized that they call for one another. . "In our time, truth is often mistaken for the opinion of the majority. In addition, there is a widespread belief that one should use the truth even against love or vice versa. But truth and love need each other. St Teresa Benedicta is a witness to this. The “martyr for love”, who gave her life for her friends, let no one surpass her in love. At the same time, with her whole being she sought the truth, of which she wrote: “No spiritual work comes into the world without great suffering. It always challenges the whole person”. .
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross says to us all: Do not accept anything as the truth if it lacks love. And do not accept anything as love which lacks truth! One without the other becomes a destructive lie. .

Dalam liturgi suci, Roh Kudus membentuk iman umat Allah. Kalau di dalam hati umat tumbuh iman, jawaban atas wahyu ilahi, maka liturgi menjadi karya bersama Roh Kudus dan Gereja. Roh Kudus mengingatkan umat akan Kristus, Tuhan. Sebagai roh pemersatu, Roh Kudus menyatukan Gereja dengan Kristus.
Dalam beberapa hal, liturgi Gereja mempertahankan unsur-unsur ibadat Perjanjian Lama (PL) dan menerimanya sebagai miliknya. Apa sajakah? Pertama-tama, pembacaan kitab-kitab PL; kedua, mazmur; ketiga, kenangan akan berbagai peristiwa dalam PL yang terpenuhi dalam diri Kristus: janji dan perjanjian, exodus dan Paskah, kerajaan dan kanisah, pembuangan dan kedatangan kembali.
Gereja yakin akan adanya keserasian antara PL dan Perjanjian Baru (PB). Dalam liturgi, disingkapkan apa yang selama ini tersembunyi dalam PL, yaitu pralambang-pralambang yang dalam arti tertentu menubuatkan pemenuhannya dalam PB.
Contoh: air bah zaman Nuh mempralambangkan keselamatan oleh pembaptisan, demikian pula awan dan penyeberangan Laut Merah; air dari cadas adalah pralambang anugerah-anugerah rohani Kristus; manna di gurun menunjuk pada Ekaristi, roti sejati dari surga.
Selayaknya, umat mempersiapkan diri untuk bertemu Tuhan dalam liturgi. Persiapan hati adalah karya bersama antara Roh Kudus dan umat Allah. Rahmat Roh Kudus membantu umat agar bangkit imannya, melakukan pertobatan, dan menjalankan kehendak Bapa. Jika diikuti dengan sikap yang tepat, liturgi akan menghasilan buah-buah yang baik untuk kehidupan. ** Ringkasan atas Katekismus Gereja Katolik No. 1091-1109
As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Peter and Andrew and said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." They left their nets. A little farther down the way, he saw James and John and called them. They, too, left their boat and their father and followed him. .
A tough loss for the world yesterday. @kobebryant inspired so many young people. Seeing this quote gave me comfort. Keeping Kobe’s family and friends in our prayers - this is truly a cross to carry. #kobe#kobebryant24#carryyourcross
We posted this quote during Advent... and it’s just too relevant to the Gospel to not repost today.
Christ asks us to be fishers of men... SO LETS CONSIDER HOW GOOD AND EFFECTIVE OUR NETS ARE!
It can be tempting when we seek to evangelize, to “throw the truth” at others. It can be tempting to argue and to debate. Even here on Instagram, there are many debates that occur...
And while the truth and respectful debate are an important part of the process... consider leading the path to Christ with your joy!
What could be more enticing, more intriguing, more beautiful, more charismatic than a heart overflowing with the joy of Christ?
What is more likely to win you over and keep you coming back for more... exasperated arguing or uncontainable joy??
If we are to be fishers of souls for Christ, what could be a more effective net than true Christian joy??
Remember, we cannot give away that which we do not have... seek JOY IN CHRIST... and He will use our lives to share His joy with others.

I went to the March for Life in DC this past weekend.
I attended the march by myself this year. To sum it all up, I basically wandered and stood in the cold by myself for the majority of the day. I’m talking standing in a human sardine can, not moving in 40 degree weather for HOURS with nothing but myself and my thoughts. My back was killing me. I hadn’t eaten in about 20 hours (poor planning). I was running on 4 hours of sleep from staying at not the best air bnb. I was so over crowds. To add insult to injury, I basically couldn’t even finish the March because I had to try (and failed btw) to get an Uber in time to go grab my bag from the air bnb before the next check in.
I can’t tell you how many times the thought, “what on earth am I doing here?” crossed my mind. I watched everyone in their big groups enjoying the day. With their cute, well-made signs. Laughing with friends. Empowered standing for life. Taking fun pictures, etc. And there I was, this random chick in a crowd of hundreds of thousands.... annoyed. Cold. Hungry. On the verge of hitting a nervous breakdown multiple times. I saw signs that made me roll my eyes. I heard chants that frustrated me. The voice was constant, “what on earth are you doing here?”
It wasn’t until I was asked the question if I would go next year or if I regretted going this year that the answer to my own question came. Yes, I was annoyed, cold, tired, hungry, frustrated, stressed - you name it - I was it. But, I was there and yes, I would still do it again (maybe with a better attitude? 😂). Why? Simply...because I still know being there meant something. Showing up mattered.
I’ll be forthright to say I have a lot of thoughts about the March for Life and the general pro-life movement. There is a lot to sort through honestly. From the swarms of MAGA hats at the March, to the eclectic variation of signs, to the counter protestors, etc. There were over HALF A MILLION people there. I can promise you, half a million people in that crowd did not all agree on everything and I was one of many with different opinions on the topic BUT regardless, half a million showed up.
