Clearing out the house often leads you to find many interesting things... I was delighted to come across a little prayer leaflet about the Sacramental Holy Water ....
Beads with Faith is a family run company based upon the Rosary and its teachings. As a Catholic company we aim to encompass faith and bead craft to create handmade Rosary beads, chaplets and Christocentric jewellery items. This blog will contain faith centred articles, information about our workshops and some of our products.
Holy water is a Sacramental that remits venial sin, Because of the blessing attached to it, Holy Church strongly urges its use upon Her children, especially when dangers threaten such as fire, storms, sickness and other calamities. Every Catholic home should always have in it a supply of Holy Water.WE DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BENEFITS DERIVED FROM HOLY WATERLET US CULTIVATE ITS USE
Our Blessed Mother is most certainly the prime example of following Our Lord. In complete trust, love and surrender to the Will of God. So what do we know about Our Blessed Mother - the Mother of all Mothers?
So Forgiveness… what is why is it important and what does it mean for our Faith? In recent months this has been something I have thought about a great deal.. Particularly when praying the Our Father – “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us..” these words resonate on my tongue as I pray. Forgiving wasn’t always something I was very good a, but holding on to our hurts is never healthy and bearing grudges is not exactly in line with Catholicism or Christianity in general. As has recently been made very clear to us all in homilies, not only from our own priest but also from religious figures throughout the globe, we cannot pick and choose what parts of our faith we adhere to..
Jesus makes frequent calls to forgive our enemies, even as he was crucified he cried:
I believe that we should always be Go-Givers – that is reach out our hands to others without thinking about what we will get from that. Sometimes this has disappointing outcomes but mostly when you come from a place of giving rather than receiving you find that life is pretty amazing!
One thing that is true and good is that we can share with others things that have touched our lives! And so I have decided that on Sundays the ONLY post I will make on my facebook page is one about fabulous Catholic or Christian Initiatives throughout the world! I will choose 5 pages a week that have touched my life greatly and that inspire me!
