This is Fr. Jonathan Morris on Fox News talking about new ads for the Christmas season, saying that as long as you a good person then there is no problem if you don't have God... I could not imagine my life without God. God is the reason I breathe. God is the reason I love. God is the reason I know good from bad. God is the reason. God is what makes all the above possible. God makes your life possible. God makes my life possible.
God makes it possible.
God makes you and me who we are
That should be enough to know that he is the reason for everything.

I am currently reading a book about Our Lady of Kibeho a Rwandan genocide survivor Immaculeé Ilibagiza , I am really intrigued by this apparition of our Lady. The African spirit is something that is deeply moving and something that we can all learn from. They have so little and yet they are so rich in spirit. I know I take for granted that I have running water whenever I need it within just a few steps but for many they walk miles in order to get to the nearest water pump, and even then it may not be drinkable.
Our Lady of Kibeho has a great message for the world: pray, love, repent.
When looking at the world today it is no surprise to me that the message is similar to the messages heard in Fatima, in Medjugorje, in Lourdes...when will we get it? When will I get it? I need to remember to pray each day the rosary (as a good friend said it is the most powerful wireless device in the world).
If she can forgive the people who killed her entire family while she hid in a bathroom for three months with 7-8 other women, then how dare I not forgive the little insult from a co-worker, or family member, the little hurt of this or that, if she can survive this genocide, and forgive! Then surely I can.
The Lord's prayer says: "forgive us as we forgive those who trespass against us", when we say it, do we really mean it?

Eucharistic miracle happened in 8th century in Italy. It happened at Mass after the consecration. Many scientific tests have been conducted on the consecrated Host, it has been determined that it is of "human species". The Flesh consists of the heart muscular tissue. Both the Flesh and Blood have the same blood type: AB, which by the way is the same as what was discovered from the Shroud of Turin.
I just think this is amazing that God gave us this miracle, and in giving this miracle, he literally gave his heart, PHYSICALLY! Isn't God great?
