First Communion Cake Pops 🙏🏻

14 years ago today, I became Catholic. Not too many people can say that their godmother is younger than they are. But mine is and she is the absolute best! I love you, @mrslizrainer! You were my first example of who the Blessed Mother is. Thank you for your tireless patience with my questions and passion for your faith almost 15 years ago. God continues to use your holy example in my life.
I was just telling my husband about how I once told you, completely freaked out by the form of stigmata Saint Rita had, that if I did not come into the church, it would be entirely because of her. It still makes me laugh. Clearly, Saint Rita wanted to prove me wrong and had a strong sense of irony. And clearly, she is a very powerful intercessor. Saint Rita, please pray for all of those considering conversion to Catholicism. Please pray for Liz, who has a precious and sweet devotion to you. And Saint Rita, please pray for my continuing conversion of heart as I continue on my journey to Heaven.

For many of us, we know the faith, we’ve heard it, we understand it – but it doesn’t affect our actions. We assume that knowing the truth means that we will act in truth. But again, that’s not always the case.

Take sin. We know what sin is, we know we shouldn’t do it, but then we go ahead and sin anyway.

On the one hand, we must remember that we aren’t perfect. That’s okay. We have confession for that.

On the other hand, we must remember the difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge.

We might know what we’re supposed to do or say (head knowledge), but we don’t feel the joy of the Gospel in our soul (heart knowledge). We might know the proofs and arguments for the existence of God, but we haven’t experienced the love of God.

Now of course, the question is how? How can we move past head knowledge to heart knowledge?

To get started – show up with an open heart. Bring ourselves before God, and pray to be moved. As I once heard a priest say, “You can’t sit before the Blessed Sacrament, before our Lord and Savior, and not be changed.” Mass, adoration, confession – God is waiting to give us graces. Show up with open hands and an open heart.

"Come near to God, and He will come near to you" (James 4: 8) Jesus always kept his ways very close to the Father, Jesus would always come near God and in return God manifested in him. In the same way we are called to live, with a constant desire to draw closer to God, thereby working the opening of our hearts to allow the Lord to come near us and manifest in our lives.

“Acérquense a Dios, y EL se acercara a ustedes” (Santiago 4:8)Jesus siempre mantuvo sus pasos muy cerca del Padre, Jesus se acercaba al Señor y el Señor se manifestaba en el. De la misma manera estamos llamados a vivir, con el deseo constante de acercarnos mas a Dios trabajando así la apertura de nuestro corazón para permitirle al Señor acercarse y manifestarse en nuestras vidas.

5. “… I will say it boldly, though God can do all things He cannot raise up a virgin when once she has fallen. He may indeed relieve one who is defiled from the penalty of her sin, but He will not give her a crown. Let us fear lest in us also the prophecy be fulfilled, "Good virgins shall faint." Notice that it is good virgins who are spoken of, for there are bad ones as well. "Whosoever looketh on a woman," the Lord says, "to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." So that virginity may be lost even by a thought. Such are evil virgins, virgins in the flesh, not in the spirit; foolish virgins, who, having no oil, are shut out by the Bridegroom...” St Jerome On Marriage and Virginity, From Letter XXII to Eustochium and from the treatise Against Jovinian

CCC 2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.
God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.

CCC 2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae," "by the very commission of the offense," and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law. The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society.

367. What is necessary to receive Holy Communion worthily?

To receive Holy Communion worthily it is necessary to be free from mortal sin, to have a right intention and to obey the Church's laws on the fast required before Holy Communion out of reverence for the body and blood of Our Divine Lord.

The tradition of the Eucharist, whereas bread and wine is transformed into the body and blood of Christ is carried on by Sacred Tradition of the Universal (Catholic) Church. It is not simply a symbol, and all of the Apostolic founded orthodox churches have carried on this tradition as well. Proof of this tradition can be found in this Biblical document of 1 Corinthians, Chapter 11:

Tradition of the Institution.
23 For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, 24 and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. 27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord. 28 A person should examine himself, and so eat the bread and drink the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many among you are ill and infirm, and a considerable number are dying. 31 If we discerned ourselves, we would not be under judgment; 32 but since we are judged by [the] Lord, we are being disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.

(1/3) “For whatever reason, people found our life fascinating. “Lamb Radio” also realized that this was something and they wanted us to do a radio show and I don’t think any of us wanted to do a radio show. I mean, I wanted one, but definitely did not need anything else on my plate or more things to do. I knew that if we did this that we couldn’t just wing-it. What if people actually start listening to it? We better be ready for that.” - The Ruttens

Life is like a roller coaster,
there will be no straight and smooth way to arrive at your destination. Eventhough we are now at our peak, eventually there will be a downhill or a bumpy road ahead.
Then, how to keep our eyes focused on the destination, to have a glorious life in the end? How to keep ourselves from being distracted by those bumps and downhills?
