📖Reflexión del Papa Francisco sobre el Evangelio 📖
.
Vengan a mí todos los que están afligidos y agobiados, y yo los aliviaré" (Mt. 11:28). Cuando Jesús dice esto, tiene ante sus ojos las personas que encuentra todos los días por los caminos de Galilea: mucha gente simple, pobres, enfermos, pecadores, marginados... esta gente siempre le siguió para escuchar su palabra - una palabra que daba esperanza
.
Las palabras de Jesús dan siempre esperanza y también para tocar aunque solo fuese el borde de su manto. Jesús mismo buscaba a estas multitudes extenuadas y dispersas como ovejas sin pastor, así dice Él, y las buscaba para anunciarles el Reino de Dios y para sanar a muchos de ellos en el cuerpo y en el espíritu. Ahora los llama a todos a su lado: "Vengan a mí", y les promete alivio y refrigerio.
.
Esta invitación de Jesús se extiende hasta nuestros días, para llegar a muchos hermanos y hermanas oprimidos por precarias condiciones de vida, por situaciones existenciales difíciles y, a veces privados de auténticos puntos de referencia.
.
En los países más pobres, pero también en las periferias de los países más ricos, se encuentran muchas personas desamparadas y dispersas bajo el peso insoportable del abandono y de la indiferencia.
.
La indiferencia: cuánto daño hace a los necesitados la indiferencia humana. Y aún peor la de los cristianos. En los márgenes de la sociedad hay muchos hombres y mujeres probados por la indigencia, pero también por las insatisfacciones de la vida y las frustraciones.
.
Muchos se ven obligados a emigrar de su patria, arriesgando su propia vida. Muchos más, cada día, soportan el peso de un sistema económico que explota al hombre, le impone un "yugo" insoportable, que los pocos privilegiados no quieren llevar.
.
A cada uno de estos hijos del Padre que está en los cielos, Jesús repite: "Vengan a mí, todos ustedes".
.
Pero también lo dice a los que poseen todo. Pero cuyo corazón está vacío. Está vacío. Corazón vacío y sin Dios. También a ellos, Jesús dirige esta invitación: "Vengan a mí". La invitación de Jesús es para todos. Pero de manera especial para los que sufren más.

Today we celebrate the feast of St. Apollinaris of Ravenna, who was a second century martyr. He was made bishop of Ravenna by St. Peter himself and is known for his bold proclamation of the Gospel. St. Apollinaris, pray for us! #martyr #saint #holy #feastday 😇

Holiness is still common in India. In most Hindu households, shops and businesses are altars and shrines, and the day is routinely started with the worship of gods and gurus.
Many mountains, rivers, stones and trees are sacred. Dozens of cities are holy and, of course, the millions of temples and idols. Quite a few animals are holy — the cow, of course, but also the bull, the monkey, the elephant, the peacock, the snake, the rat....
So it may come as no surprise that people can be holy too, though they have to become holy.
The Indian concept of holiness is quite different from that in the West. It is not necessarily (though often) associated with the "good." In fact, some all-India saints, such as Ramakrishna or Chaitanya, would probably be considered lunatics in the West. There is a long tradition of 'divine madness' in Hinduism.
To Hindus, spiritual enlightenment has always represented the highest goal in life, the one thing that gives it meaning and purpose.
Moreover, enlightenment is a state of being that is in principle attainable by everybody.
The average individual, however, would need many incarnations to become enlightened, to see God, to become one with the Absolute, to merge one's mind with Cosmic Consciousness — in short, to become holy.

Since time immemorial shortcuts have been available for people wanting to become enlightened in this life rather than the next. Those who follow the fast track, mostly men, are the sadhus, the 'holy men' of India.
For thousands of years they have been around. Once they must have been more numerous, but even today there are still four to five million sadhus, constituting about half a percent of the total population.
Organised in various sects, they passed on the wisdom of old, the method of yoga, that is 'yoking' soul and Soul together.

Usually they live by themselves, on the fringes of society, and spend their days in devotion to their chosen deity.

Someone from an opera company asked if I would send some of my photos of the skeleton of St Friedrich in Melk, Austria, because they want to study him for a costume. Yes, I'm happy to oblige, but more importantly if this is their idea of costuming this sounds like a very promising opera. The fyi: he's obviously extra fantastic but he could afford to be lavish since his skeleton was once owned by the Empress Maria Theresa, Marie Antoinette's mother. #skeleton #humanskeleton #katakombenheiligen #catacombsaints #heavenlybodies #death #relic #saint #melk #mariatheresa #marieantionette

I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite, the louder someone claims sainthood, the bigger the horn they are hiding. #m16 #machinegun #gun #weapons #rifle #quote #quotes #entp #cambodia #sinner #saint #hyprocrite #horns

🕊Saint & Sinner🖤

Recently, @katvondbeauty rereleased their signature fragrances. Both Saint & Sinner are cruelty-free and vegan, two things that @thekatvond is known for. Sinner has keynotes of: Patchouli, Wood, and Cinnamon. Saint's keynotes are: Vanilla, Musk, and Jasmine. To me, both are florals and their description even states that the two share "the same floral soul". While they are different, there is definitely similarity between the two. Unfortunately, I did not receive the beautiful bottles that Kat hand designed. (I received these complimentary from @influenster for reviewing purposes.) The filigree that covers the regular bottles is unique and so gorgeous. Definitely making these bottles a display item. These fragrances are available at both @sephora and at katvondbeauty.com .
