✝️Padre Pio celebrating Holy Mass. ✝️ Sometimes even though we know skipping Mass is a mortal sin the devil tempts us in any way to make us skip it because of how Holy It is so don't let him win today. ❣️ Go to Mass because we need it. • • •
'Jesus is giving you such an opportunity to be holier than all the saints have ever been, because the world is in such need of shining lives, beacons to see by' Mother Angelica. . . Needing a bit of hope for the week ahead? St. Jude is your guy! . Disclosure - No, I don't endorse smoking but I do love cigar boxes. No, I don't worship idols but I do consider the saints to be like distant relatives, my friends who can help me get to heaven by their example. Yes, these are miniature statues aren't they idols? No, they are just tangible items to remind me of my loved ones because cameras weren't invented back then and because Catholics worship God alone! .
