Newly-elected Pope Francis making his way to the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, after changing into the white Papal cassock (March 13, 2013). Let us always pray for the Holy Father so that he may lead the Church according to God's will, and that he clarifies some of his actions. #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #SuccessorOfPeter #Pope #Papa #BishopOfRome #HabemusPapam #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Blessed #Rome #StPetersBasilica

Joshua Mangels was a pastor at a Pentecostal Church in Tucson, Arizona. This past Easter, him, his family, and 12 members of his congregation were welcomed into the Catholic Church. Even though he was a Protestant Pastor, he had begun to study deeply into Church history, and eventually accepted the truth of Jesus Christ. He and his family, along with the 12 others entered into full Communion through the Byzantine-rite of the Church, accepting and acknowledging Church teachings, and the authority of the Roman Pontiff. Let us continue to pray for the conversion of all Protestants and schismatics to the true Church. God bless you all!!! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #Pentecostal #Protestant #Catholicism #ByzantineCatholic #TeenageCatholic #JesusChrist #Church #HolyBible #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Blessed

Yesterday, September 28th, 2017, was the 39th anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul I. Cardinal Albino Luciani was consecrated a Bishop in 1958, by St. Pope John XXIII. Blessed Pope Paul VI appointed him as the Patriarch of Venice in 1969, and made him a Cardinal in 1973. Cardinal Luciani was later elected Supreme Pontiff in 1978, after the death of Blessed Paul VI. Sadly, Pope John Paul I died just 33 days after ascending to the Throne of St. Peter. His reign as Successor of the Prince of the Apostles is the shortest in modern history, and his sudden death caused the most recent "Year of Three Popes (1978- Popes Paul VI, JPI, and St. JPII)," which is when 2 Popes are elected in the same year. Even though his reign was short, he greatly impacted the Church. He was the last Pope to use the Sedia Gestatoria, and he refused to be coronated with the Papal Triregnum. He also replaced the Papal Coronation with a Papal Inauguration. All of his successors (St. JPII, Benedict XVI, and Francis) have followed his lead. I sometimes wonder that if he impacted the Church that much in only one month, then what would the Church be like today, if he had reigned longer? Let us ask for the intercession of the former Pontiff, and potential Saint, to pray for our Church and for his successor, Pope Francis. May God bless you all! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #OneHolyCatholicApostolic #UnaSantaCatolicaApostolica #UnamSanctamCatolicamApostolicam #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #RomanPontiff #SupremePontiff #TeenageCatholic #FaithfulRomanCatholic #JesusChrist #VirginMary #Blessed #PopeJohnPauli #CardinalLuciani #YearOfThreePopes #Vatican #HolySee #Pope #HolyBible #SuccessorOfThePrinceOfTheApostles

Jesus made Peter the head of the Apostles, and the Rock of the Church. Peter, later on in his life, went to Rome where he became their first Bishop, and he eventually died there. When Peter was gone, Linus succeeded him as Bishop of Rome, and even to this day, Peter has a Successor. Only the Catholic Church can truthfully claim to have the unbroken lineage of the Roman successors of St. Peter. We have had 266 Popes, starting with St. Peter, up to today with Francis. And when Pope Francis is no longer the pope, St. Peter will have a new successor, and then another, and another, because Jesus told us that the gates of hell shall NOT prevail against the Church He established. As Catholics, we give obedience to the Pope and acknowledge him as our Spiritual leader, since he is the Successor of Peter, Supreme Roman Pontiff, Vicar of Christ, and Head of the Universal Church. We must respect him and his office. However, we shouldn't blindly follow everything he says, because if he is not speaking infallibly, he can say things that are his own opinions, and that are not infallible statements. Other than that, we need to show love, reverence, and obedience to him. I absolutely hate it when "Catholics" speak bad and constantly attack the Pope, because by attacking the Universal head of the Church, it makes the Church seem weak to others, when it is NOT! I have heard "Catholics" speak of the Pope in ways I haven't even heard from Anti-Catholic heretics and Protestants, and if we're being honest, it makes them no different. Let us pray for the Church and for the Pope. #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #JovenCatolico #TeenageCatholic #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #BishopOfRome #SuccessorOfPeter #RomanPontiff #SupremePontiff #FaithfulRomanCatholic

Feast Day of St. Teresa of Calcutta•••
Even though she has been canonized and holds the title of "Saint," this humble and Christ-like lady is still remembered throughout the world as Mother Teresa. The Indian Catholic nun was canonized a Saint of the Catholic Church by Pope Francis, on September 4, 2016. She is without-a-doubt one of the most loved Saints of the Church. She is honored and respected throughout the world for her humanitarian help, and for her care of the sick, poor, and those who are most in need. She was also a strong opponent of abortion, and fought for the rights of unborn babies. She is one of my favorite Saints, and the world was blessed to have her, and her contributions. We should use her life as an example of what ours should be like; humble, charitable, righteous, Christ-centered, and Christ-like!

•••Feast day of St. Ignatius of Loyola•••
St. Ignatius is most remembered for being the founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). The Jesuits are a religious order whose members take the traditional vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, like other religious orders. However, unlike other orders, the Jesuits also profess obedience to the Pope. In 2013, Pope Francis became the first Jesuit ever to be elected Supreme Pontiff. St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for Pope Francis and for the Church. We also ask you to intercede for the order you founded, which has sadly been taken over by the modernists. May the Jesuits once again be as faithful as they used to be. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Ora Pro Nobis!!! (The motto of the Society of Jesus is "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam," which means "For the Greater Glory of God"). #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #Rome #Roma #SupremePontiff #Pope #ObedienceToThePope #StIgnatiusOfLoyola #Loyola #SocietyOfJesus #Jesuits #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #Saint #FeastDay #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Blessed

Feast day of Pope St. Pius X•••
He was a strong supporter/promoter of traditionalism, orthodox teachings, and the glorification of the Papacy. He was a fierce opponent of modernism, and fought against it throughout his Reign. He is also remembered as the "Pope of the Eucharist," due to his strong reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, calling it "the shortest and safest way to heaven." He also allowed children to be able to receive their First Communion at 7 years old, rather than at age 12, as it traditionally had been. He is said to have been a very humble man, and at the time of his death he proclaimed, "I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor." St. Pius X is one of my favorite Popes and Saints. Let us ask for his intercession. Pope St. Pius X, defender of the true Faith, pray for our Church, and for your successor, Francis... Sanctus Pivs X, Ora Pro Nobis... #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #TeenageCatholic #PapaFrancisco #PopeFrancis #PopePiusX #StPiusX #SanPioX #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #SuccessorOfPeter #VicarOfChrist #JesusChrist #HolyBible #Blessed #VirginMary #OraProNobis #FaithfulRomanCatholic

A beautiful aspect of the Catholic Liturgy, is the burning of incense. For those who do not know, the burning of incense has been done for a very long time, even before Christianity came into existence. It was originally used for worship in the Jewish Temples, and the Jews continued its use even after the foundation of Christianity. Considering that a lot of the early Christians converted from Judaism, as well as Christianity being the fulfillment of the Jewish Faith, it seems obvious that the early Christians would carry on the traditions that the Jews held. This is why the Catholic Church uses incense, because it is a tradition that stems from the Church's Jewish roots. The incense is put into a swinging vessel called a Thurible or censer, in which it is burned. The thurible is traditionally golden. The smoke from the burning incense symbolizes the burning passion of Faith that should consume all Christians, as well as our Prayers rising to Heaven. "And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. (Revelations 8:3-4)." Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy; Lord hear our Prayers. May God bless you all! (Pictured: Pope Francis, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Cardinal Robert Sarah, and Cardinal Raymond Burke, all using a thurible) #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #Thurible #Censer #Incense #Catholic #PopeBenedictXVI #CardinalSarah #CardinalBurke #LiturgyOfTheMass #Judaism #Catholicism #Christianity #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Blessed

•••Feast Day of Sts. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael; The Three Archangels•••
Even though it is believed that there are more Archangels, these are the only three that are specifically mentioned in the Bible. The Archangel Gabriel is the one who appeared to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and announced to her that she would give birth to the Savior of the world, the long-waited Messiah, and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. The Archangel Raphael is mentioned in the book of Tobit, which is included in Catholic and Orthodox Bibles, but not in Protestant interpretations. The Archangel Michael is mentioned in the books of Daniel and Jude. The book of Revelations describes a war in Heaven, in which St. Michael the Archangel defeats Satan. O Holy Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, servants of God Almighty, and defenders of the Church against all evils; pray for us and for our Church, Amen. #OraProNobis #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #OneHolyCatholicApostolic #UnaSantaCatolicaApostolica #UnamSanctamCatolicamApostolicam #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #RomanPontiff #SupremePontiff #TeenageCatholic #FaithfulRomanCatholic #JesusChrist #VirginMary #Blessed #StMichaelArchangel #StGabrielArchangel #StRaphaelArchangel #Archangels #FeastDayOfTheArchangels

His Eminence, Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer is the Archbishop of São Paulo, Brazil, the largest archdiocese in the world. The 67-year old Brazilian Archbishop is considered to be theologically conservative, and was made a Cardinal by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, in 2007. He was considered to be South America's best chance of having a Pope from the continent, and was regarded as a firm candidate to succeed Benedict XVI as Pope, in the 2013 conclave. While he was not elected Pope, another South American was; Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina (The South American country that borders Brazil), who was elected Pope in 2013. The fact that he runs the largest archdiocese in the largest Catholic country on Earth, makes Cardinal Scherer a very "visible" member of the Church, and specifically, the Latin American Church. And at 67 years old, he is still 8 years away from the typical retirement age of 75, and 13 years away until losing his right to vote in a Papal Conclave, at age 80. With many years left of service to the Church, there is no doubt that Cardinal Scherer will be an influential and powerful "figure" of the Catholic Church. May God bless our Bishops, and our Pope.

I'll be honest; I don't agree with Pope Francis on everything, and I find some of his actions questionable. But disagreeing, doesn't mean hating. In fact, Pope Francis is one of my favorite popes! Don't forget that the Pope is a person with opinions, just like you and me. We don't have to agree with his personal opinions. The only time Catholics must agree with the Pope, is when he speaks infallibly from the Chair of St. Peter (Ex Cathedra), regarding Faith and Morals. However, we must respect the Pope for his office (the Papacy). I have seen many "Catholic" pages who attack and insult the Pope more than most Protestants. When a "Catholic" attacks the Pope, it makes the Church seem weak, when She is NOT! It also shows a lack of loyalty to the Supreme Pontiff, and can lead people astray. It's fine to respectfully disagree and question him, but it is NOT fine to insult or attack him! Instead, we should be praying for him, and that God's will be done! Lord, protect and guide your Vicar on earth, and let him reign with righteousness, Amen. #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #SuccessorOfPeter #VicarOfChrist #Pope #FaithfulRomanCatholic #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #Blessed #PrayForPopeFrancis

It is truly heartbreaking to learn that Charlie Gard has passed away. Charlie died earlier today, July 28th, just one week before his 1st birthday. Even though his temporal life on earth has ended, his Eternal Life in Heaven has just begun, and he will be in the Glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, forever. Baby Charlie is now among the many Angels and Saints, and will forever be in the presence of the Father in Heaven. My Prayers and Condolences are with his parents, who did all they could to save their baby boy, in this grievous and mournful moment. Let us also pray for Charlie's eternal rest. "Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis, Amen." Requiescat in Pace, Charlie. 🙏🏽😭🙏🏽😢🙏🏽 #CharlieGard #CharlieGardCase #CharliesFight #CharliesArmy #FlyHighCharlieGard #RestInPeace #DescanseEnPaz #RequiescatInPace #EternalRestUntoThem #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Blessed #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #ChrisGard #ConnieYates #Prayer #UK #IStandWithCharlieGard #JesusChrist #HolyBible #VirginMary

John 6:51-57: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.”••••• In these verses we see a resemblance between Jews and most modern-day Protestants, because both question and deny the Body and Blood of Christ, in the form of bread and wine. Jesus clearly spoke and said that His body is true food, and that His blood is true drink. Nowhere in these verses did He say it was just symbolic, but instead, he clearly emphasized that it is truly and literally His body and blood. Christ said that, and He meant it. This is why the center of the Mass and of our Faith is the Eucharist, because we obey Christ and His teachings. This is also why the Catholic Church is strict on who can and can not receive Communion, because you are literally receiving the body and blood of Christ, present in the Eucharist. Only baptized Catholics who have made their First Communion and are in a state of Grace, may receive. By denying the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, is to call Him a liar, and He is not. This is the problem with most Protestants (with few sects being exceptions), because they know the Scriptures and they have seen the emphasis that Christ clearly placed on His Words regarding the Eucharist, and yet they deny His True Presence and His commandments. This is also what upsets me most about Protestants, because they are so close to getting it right, yet they deny some of the important commandments of Christ. Let us always pray for the conversion of Protestants everywhere.

Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul... "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.”
‭‭St Matthew‬ ‭16:18-19‬ ‭(Pictured: Sts. Peter and Paul, the Papal coat of arms, and Pope Francis, the 265th Successor of St. Peter). #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #SuccessorOfPeter #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #VicarOfChrist #Pope #HolyBible #StPeter #StPaul #Apostles #JesusChrist #Rome #Vatican #HolySee #Blessed #TeenageCatholic #JovenCatolico #FaithfulRomanCatholic
