To understand Christ’s Resurrection, we have to first look towards His cross. As hard as it is and as much as we want to avoid it, we have to turn towards His agony, confront the sins that put Him there, recognize our part in it, and fall on our knees in recognition of the greatest act of love the world has ever known. What the world calls foolishness—that we would worship at the feet of a condemned man, hung to death on a cross—we know to be Truth itself: Love incarnate freely offering His life for our salvation for all eternity. Here, in Christ’s passion and death, we find the meaning and extent of His incredible self-sacrificing, eternal, and total love for us. While it is true that the vision of our Lord suffering and dying on the cross is ugly and brutal, the reason for why He died cannot be dismissed or overlooked. The ugliness of the cross reflects the real horror of the human condition—of SIN—but it is on the cross that Christ takes on all the ugliness of the world, and turns to us in love, saying, “See, I make all things new.” . . . Whatever pain you’re going through...however lost you feel...no matter your state or status in life...if you’ve been burned, forgotten, hated, mistreated, unloved...if you’ve made mistakes that seem beyond forgiveness and you feel like no one could ever love you...turn towards His cross and see...Jesus died for you. Jesus loves you. Jesus thirsts for you and calls you by name. Turn to Him and towards His merciful love and find yourself, not lost and abandoned, but truly seen, cared for, and loved. It is in Him that you will find the fullness of life you were created for. He is waiting for you. . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #hope #lent
I just love Holy Week so much. There’s so much to look forward to, and it’s the best time to really turn inward and reflect on where we stand in relation to the Lord. Are we walking with Him? Will we journey with Him through His passion, so as to rise with Him come Easter? Important questions. One thing that’s also always on my mind during Lent is the anticipation for the Sacraments. So many beautiful people will be entering the Church, and it’s SO exciting! But also, I think it’s important not to forget that for every 1 person entering the Church, there are 6 people who leave. SIX. Those statistics are staggering. Maybe you’ve been touched by this personally. Maybe a family member you love is no longer going to Mass. Whether or not that’s true for you, this touches all of us—the Church—in a profound way. This week, maybe something we could all do is think of someone who has been away from the Church, and invite them back. Extend a hand. Pray for them. Fast for them. Invite them to Mass with you and then over for Easter dinner afterwards. At the very least, maybe we could all be a little more loving to the “Chr-Easter’s”...instead of complaining about them, rejoice that they recognize the significance and importance of Christ’s Resurrection. Pray it transforms their hearts and convicts them to come back to regular weekly Mass. Let us be disciples of Christ who not only seek to love the Lord and live for Him within our hearts, but also bring His love and Good News to others. 💗 . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #hope #lent
It’s always a beautiful day on Palm Sunday, but I try to never forget that this is also one of the few days in which we hear of Jesus weeping. There were two significant times Jesus weeps in the Bible: 1) over the death of Lazarus, and 2) over Jerusalem as He enters, heading towards His passion. There is so much ugliness in separation: the soul was never meant to be separated from the body in death, and God’s chosen people were never meant to be separated from Him. The thought of this separation brings God Himself to great sorrow. His greatest desire is for our union with Him—it’s what He created us for, and it’s what will bring us true fulfillment and everlasting joy. He wants that for us—not for His own gain—but because He deeply loves each and every one of us. Yet, we reject Him. We spurn Him. We place things in front of Him. We fail to take Him at His Word, to take seriously our relationship with Him, and to give our hearts fully to His will. We fail to see that we meet our spiritual death when, through freedom, we choose to separate ourselves from His love. Jesus knows this, and He weeps for it. As we begin this Holy Week, may we all remember Jesus’ sorrow...May we find it within ourselves to resolutely turn ourselves towards Him—seeking our source of life in Christ, rather than in the world or ourselves—so that He may not weep over our rejection of Him, but rejoice that in Him we choose new life. . . . #catholic #christian #catholicfaith #catholicism #bissisterhood #jesus #prayer #catholicliving #catholicsisters #projectblessed #peaceinchrist #christianliving #jesuslovesyou #catholicism #catholicblogger #blogger #heartofchrist #holyspirit #catholicconnect #hope #lent
It’s not very often that we get to go on a girl’s date! (And downtown to boot!) Lu and I had the BEST time this morning with some of the awesome people from the Kansas City Symphony, followed by a street car ride and brunch. We loved our little solo getaway so much, we’re already planning the next! . . . Do you take solo dates with your kiddos?? What do you like to do!? . . #catholicmom #bissisterhood #kansascity #kansascitysymphony #catholicsisters #banksia
Happy National sibling day or whatever! Just an excuse to say “I love you!” to my sisters! . . . Fun fact—there’s basically two sets of us—me and Sofie are ten years apart and so are Anna and Kristin. Separated by years but not by beauty or grace 😜😜😜. I sure love my sisters! @kfmontoya12 @sopaipila @fajardo_annaelena
