My God, if You exist, make Your existance known to me!

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

 

A cry from the heart: My God, if You exist, make Your existance known to me!

from Bl. Charles de Foucauld before his conversion

CdF

As soon as I believed there was a God, I understood I could do nothing else but live for him, my religious vocation dates from the same moment as my faith: God is so great. There is such a difference between God and everything that is not.

Nov 28 – St. Pio Daily – Self-Knowledge & the Storms of Life

Friday, November 28th, 2008

Ave Maria!November’s Theme: Holiness

“It is very easy to guide a boat when it is not troubled by the winds, and to go through life without an accident whatsoever. But in the middle of the obstacles or trials, as through the winds, it is very difficult to continue the journey. Behold the necessity to always watch and to look after one’s self, of one’s own actions, of one’s intentions and to show that the heart is good and just, sweet, humble and generous. To such an end, often place your heart in the state of an absolute confidence in Him who has called you into the bosom of His affection.”

FiNews – AirMaria Thanksgiving Update

Ave Maria!

[Update: Some of the links that were broken in this post have been fixed]

Hello friends! We wanted to take this Thanksgiving Day here in the US to thank everyone for your prayers, support and regular viewership of AirMaria. You are the AirMaria community, and we wanted to thank you for making AirMaria a success in spreading devotion to Our Lady.

Also today marks the 2nd anniversary of the first post on AirMaria back on Thanksgiving Day 2006 (a few months before the official start in March 2007, note the “FITVN” in the thumbnail below which was the first name we were intending to use before coming up with AirMaria.)

The video was Fr. Peter in the first of his series, the Golden Thread. It is an introduction to the theology of John Duns Scotus and interestingly talks about the 700th anniversary of his death that just took place at the beginning of this month. Also, the video file for this episode was lost for about a year and I just found a copy while doing the switch to the new server last week. Sooo …in the spirit of thanksgiving we present Fr. Peter’s Golden Thread, the lost episode. We plan on continuing his series with new episodes in the near future. (more…)

Ave Maria!

This is a repost of on of the earliest videos on AirMaria, revisted today on this feast of the Miraculous Medal. Enjoy!

Original Post:

This vignette of the apparition of Our Lady to St. Catherine Laboure on the occasion of her request for the Medal was produced by the Franciscans of the Immaculate in conjunction with Susan Mackewich of Gizmo Productions and Dave Wroe. We include this segment on the happy occasion of the start of Air Maria and on the Feast of the Annunciation of the Archangel St. Michael to Our Lady resulting in the blessed Incarnation of the Son of God.

Nov 27 – St. Pio Daily – Perfection, Docility, & the Divine Will

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Ave Maria!November’s Theme: Holiness

“The evident sign of perfection is that of being submissive to the Divine Will in the trials of the spirit. Religion is a hospital for the spiritually ill who wish to be cured, and in order to achieve this they submit themselves to bleeding, the lancet, the razor, some probing, surgical instruments, fire and all the pains of medicine.”

The Universal Prayer of Thanksgiving After Mass

(Attributed to Pope Clement XI)

 

Lord, I believe in you: increase my faith.

I trust in you: strengthen my trust.

I love you: let me love you more and more.

I am sorry for my sins: deepen my sorrow.

 

I worship you as my first beginning,

I long for you as my last end,

I praise you as my constant helper,

and call on you as my loving protector.
