Catholics: we are born again the biblical way

We are born again with spirit and water; through baptism we become members of the Church.

From nakedpastor
We have abandon Jesus. So often we tend to sacrifice others for our interests. Who are my victims?

Meditations on God in Thankfulness

Meditations on God in Thankfulness 

In silence, invisibly,
Your form came upon mine.
Unable to resist,
I came to know you.

In knowledge I grew
Through wisdom new,
To Truth.

Soft petals of fragrance blending
Sweet thoughts and love unending.
Hidden beauty I find,
In Mary, so kind,
Through faith and silence you come.

Saint of the month: Frances of Rome

The random saint generator of Jenifer Fulwiler gave me this saint:

Frances of Rome, (1384 – March 9, 1440) is an Italian saint who was a wife, mother, mystic, organizer of charitable services and a Benedictine oblate who founded a religious community of oblates, who share a common life without religious vows.

An interesting life that you can read in wikipedia or here

What I can learn from this saint is the desire of follow God's will, and the ability to do so in a lay world. She spent much in alms and helping the poor in time of crisis. A proper example, specially for this time of lent.
