If you are willing to listen to the Lord of the angels, my soul, you will have no reason to envy the angels their lofty place or how they move at tremendous speeds without tiring. For you will not only be equal to the angels when you are freed from the body, but also … you will possess together with your body heaven as your own home.” St. Robert Bellarmine 🌸 🌸 🌸
“The angels who shine like the stars feel sympathy for our human nature and place it before God’s eyes just as if it were a book. They attend us. They speak to us in a reasonable way, just as God inspires them to do. In the sight of God they praise people who do good deeds but turn away from those who are evil. St. Hildegard of Bingen 🌸 🌸 🌸
True conversion happens when we accept the gift of grace, and a clear sign of its authenticity is when we become aware of the needs of our brothers and are ready to draw near to them
Pope Francis 🌸 🌸 🌸
I often see a lady sitting in our area with a lil cup begging. 🌸 She sometimes has an uncomfortable seat she sits on. 🌸 I see her all the time and have never wished to help… not because I don’t give but because she is simply there all the time and I don’t wish to be involved that closely…
When I was coming out of church and walked past something struck me and it was somethings Pope Francis says.. so I popped into a food shop and bought her something quite cheap… gave her some change… What I was met with wasn’t expected.. She threw her arms around me, (you have no idea how uncomfortable that is for an English person in a street full of others) and was trying to tell me a painful story in her native language … I got impression her baby had died..
I pointed up to the sky and encouraged a prayer to Jesus (trying to ignore the staring of others) and she opened her coat and pulled out a prayer card with Jesus on it… The thing is is it was nothing to me I didn’t give her much but to her it meant everything..
So many people all day walk straight past her…but as Pope Francis says we shouldn’t be frightened to touch human suffering. 🌸 ‘Jesus teaches us not to be ashamed of touching human misery, of touching His flesh in our brothers and sisters who suffer’ Pope Francis… I realised as I walked away just how cold the world is..
How distant from each other we are, how we have grown used to seeing and ignoring suffering in others and how seperate I was conditioned by society myself .. I found myself knowing this could happen to anyone of us.. and we could be sitting all day in cold, hungry and alone watching others all day walking past… how awful that thought struck me. 🌸
We don’t need to be emotional about all this.. but how nice it would be if each of us brought a lil blanket or homemade sandwiches,or spare change, socks, gloves or simply anything small that we could place with them as it means so much to them.. even a flask of warm tea. 🌸
Jesus says whoever gives to the least gives directly to him.. So it’s a bonus to. 🌸 I feel we are so used to being warm, having a home, engaged in consumerism and living in a society that’s all about self, we think the issues of others are just too big for us to help with, yet it’s the little things we do that mean the most… Saint teresea said if you can’t feed 100 people then just feed one.. She was right.. 🌸 Let’s all do our little bit in the local community and show we do care about others… Simply seeing them as us and what we’d like in the same boat… I feel this would bring about a sense of community that we once had…
We lose nothing by sharing and what I felt from it after was it wasn’t the little I gave her that made her so emotional… It was that she felt another cared… Isn’t that what people really want?Just to feel others care…their eyes light up.. Gifts to them and ourselves… Keeping us grounded. 🌸
I give credit to Pope Francis because without his teachings and pointing to Jesus I’d have walked away but I’m finally waking up and smelling the coffee although there is still that fight of conditioning of them and us and just looking after ourselves and our loved ones I’ve always had, but it’s a seed I hope to grow more in myself 🌸
I’m only a few years in with christianity as I see more established ones give as if its second nature lol🌸 🌸 blessings 🌸 🌸 🌸
