Be Human Be Holy

God-Man

Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the alter and there remember that your brother has some thing against you, leave your gift there in front of the alter. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.                                                                    Mt. 5:23-24

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.                               -Mt. 6:12

Christ practiced what he preached all his life. So much so that we  can say that the special characteristic of Christ was to forgive unforgivable, as indeed of God. The culmination was in his forgiving those who crucified him (Lk. 23:34).

The Talmud has a touching story. An aged man whom Abraham hospitably received in his tent refused to join him in prayer. Learning that he was a fire worshiper, Abraham drove him from his door.

That night God appeared to Abraham and said, ” I have borne with that man for seventy years; could you have not patiently suffered him one night?”

LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS

Pope-Image

When a loving person can do good for others, or sees that others are happy, they themselves live happily and in this way give glory to God, for “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor 9:7). Our Lord especially appreciates those who find joy in the happiness of others.

If we fail how to rejoice in the well-being of others, and focus primarily on our own needs, we condemn ourselves to a joyless existence, for, as Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

The family must always be a place where, when something good happens to one of its members, they know that others will be there to celebrate it with them.

Live Inspired Always

If you had just a year to live,

      How differently would you live it?

                          What exactly would you do?

St. Pauls dedicate this book to everyone who has inspired by some or the others.

live inspired always

The word ‘inspiration’ come from the Hebrew ‘theoneustos’, meaning ‘God breathes’. Let God inspire us.

Live in the Present, do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future; concentrate on the present moment.’ – Buddha

 If you dwell on the negative you become negative minded; if you look for and dwell on the positive you become the positive minded so replace all and any negativity you have in store with positivity.

Today is a brand new day; start fresh.Some people aim for success; others just talk about it. We all know what it looks like when someone else has it. Oftentimes it just seems like something too far out of reach. The truth is

Success is closer than you think. It’s just on the other side. You have to want it enough, and be willing enough to get it.“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” – Johann Woldgang von Geothe. The darkest moments of one’s life may carry the seeds of the brightest tomorrow since there is always a Light at the end of the tunnel. Life inspired always act, don’t react. Never become discouraged by a small job accept that all things happen for a reason. Find an idea that can change your life, you will never change your life until you change something you do daily. A year from now you will wish you had started today.The only thing worse than being is having sight but no vision.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow – Albert Einstein

Stop waiting for things to happen.

                   Go out and make things happen.
