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

Once you figure out who those people are life has so much more purpose. When you get rid of the toxic people, or the ones who don't support you or just pull you down, it's better. Live life the way you want, and don't live it to please someone or get their approval, because in the end it's your happiness that matters. It's taken me a lot of heart breaks, tears, anger, hurt and just really hard times for me to figure out what people I want or in my life. And I'm sure that at different times in your life you need different people. But for the time being, I'm happy with friends that are in my life. I wouldn't change anything about them other than the fact we lived closer. But I have faith in the Good Lord that when the time is right he will reunite us once again. So if you look at your life and wonder why your so upset, or unhappy, take a step back and see what people are not healthy for me. What people no matter what my decision may be they respect me enough to trust that this is what I want to do. Be happy, live your life to the fullest, and live it in a way where you always put God first. ✝️💒❤️🌎#godsplan #blessed #hegivesmewhoineed #jesus #catholic #catholicofinstagram #teenagecatholic #youthreligion #thelordisgood #hesmyoneandonly #lovehim #happy #newme #heartbreakchangedme

Thank you, Holy Father!!! I am currently beginning to read Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation, "Evangelii Gaudium," and I just had to share this statement by the Pope, because it is very powerful, emotional, and true in a lot of our lives. How many times do we try to refrain from sinning, but always end up committing it, due to temptations? How many times do we feel ashamed, guilty, and regretful for falling back into sin? If you answered "a lot" for both questions, then your not alone! We ALL commit sins, ALL of us. When we sin, we must ask for forgiveness! But sometimes, we feel as if God won't forgive us. The truth is that if we are truly regretful of our sins, then God will always forgive us, no matter if the sin is Mortal or Venial. As Catholics, we are blessed to have the beautiful Sacrament of Confession, where we can get right with the Lord! Please, if you have not been to confession in a long time, GO! Go get the heavy burden of sin off of your back, so that you can feel as light as a feather with the Grace of God! The Lord is waiting for you!!! If any of you have questions about Confession, feel free to ask me, and please don't forget to pray for me!!! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #JovenCatolico #TeenageCatholic #Confession #Reconciliation #JesusChrist #PapaFrancisco #PopeFrancis #EvangeliiGaudium #JoyOfTheGospel #HolyBible #FaithfulRomanCatholic

Happy Father's Day to the Holy Father Francis, Holy Father Emeritus Benedict XVI, St. Joseph, and my own father!!! Also, Happy Father's Day to all priests, who even though aren't biological fathers, are spiritual fathers to the faithful!

MOST RECENT

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

Who could have known??? In the first picture, we see Pope Benedict XVI with the Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio. In the second picture, we see the same two men, only this time, as former Pope (Emeritus) Benedict XVI with the new Pope Francis. I love seeing them together. We are living in a historic time period where the current Pope can meet with his living predecessor. Also, It's always nice to see a German get along with an Argentinian (FIFA World Cup 2014 reference)😂. May God bless Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Pope Francis!!! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #TeenageCatholic #CatolicoJoven #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #PopeEmeritus #PopeBenedictXVI #PapaEmerito #PapaBenedictoXVI #VicarOfChrist #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #SuccessorOfPeter #JesusChrist #HolyBible #SantaBiblia #BuenosAires #Argentina #Munich #Germany #FIFAWorldCup2014 #FaithfulRomanCatholic #Vatican #HolySee

About 2 weeks ago, Pope Francis appointed Father Bernard "Ned" Schlesinger of the Diocese of Raleigh, NC, to serve as an Auxiliary Bishop for the Atlanta Archdiocese. He will be serving the Archdiocese along with Auxiliary Bishop Luis Zarama and Archbishop Wilton Gregory. Shortly after his appointment, Archbishop Gregory released a statement, "With deep gratitude, I want to thank His Holiness Pope Francis for the appointment of The Reverend Bernard E. Shlesinger, III, a Priest of the Diocese of Raleigh as an Auxiliary Bishop of Atlanta... I warmly welcome him to the Archdiocese of Atlanta and I look forward to working with him in service to this local Church." Atlanta is my home Archdiocese, and we welcome Bishop Schlesinger with open arms!!! Thank you Pope Francis for his appointment, and may he serve the Archdiocese well, for the Greater Glory of God!!! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #FaithfulRomanCatholic #IglesiaCatolica #CatholicChurch #CatholicYouth #JovenCatolico #TeenageCatholic #Atlanta #ArchdioceseOfAtlanta #ArchbishopGregory #AuxiliaryBishop #RomanCatholicArchdioceseOfAtlanta #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #RaleighNC #NedShlesinger #DioceseOfRaleigh #HolyBible #OneHolyCatholicApostolic #UnaSantaCatolicaApostolica #Blessed

As Catholics (and even just as decent human beings), we should always fight against the murder of unborn children! Society tells us that abortion is a woman's right to decide for her own body, but in reality, it is taking away the basic rights to life from millions of girls and boys each year. Also remember that just because something is legal, doesn't make it okay (remember slavery). What I want to say to all guys reading this, is don't be afraid to speak out against abortion, because I have also been told that I can't have an opinion on abortion because I am a guy and its not my choice, but it does NOT matter what gender you are to know that murdering children before they are born, is WRONG. And to any woman that has had an abortion in the past and is regretful, I want to let you know that even though you have committed a terribly grave mistake, there is no sin that the Grace, Love, and Mercy of God will not forgive, as long as you are truly seeking to be forgiven and reconciled with God, the Father Almighty! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #Catolico #CatholicYouth #JovenCatolico #TeenageCatholic #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #PopeStJohnPaulii #PapaJuanPabloii #Abortion #ProLife #WeAreTheProLifeGeneration #DefundPlannedParenthood #FeministsWillBeTriggered #DemocratsWillBeTriggered #ArrestCecileRichards #CatholicsForLife #AbortionIsMurder #Forgiveness #Mercy #Love #HolyBible #May #VirginMary #JesusChrist #FaithfulRomanCatholic

Hello all and welcome! Welcome to my Instagram account where I share the love I have for god with everyone, my daily struggles but also my daily accomplishments. The things that bring me closer to the Lord and all of the things he does for me that I'm not even aware of. I'm not in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. My second home! It is the most beautiful, kind, loving, family orientated place I've ever been. I hope that someday God allows me to raise my family here. I couldn't think of a more perfect place to live. I hope you all have an amazing Victoria Day weekend. Everyone in my life I know is in need of a long weekend. Use it well because it only lasts so long! #summer2017gonnabelit #longweekend #church #catholic #pray #praisethelord #trusthim #teenagecatholic #relaxing #refreshing #friendsandfamily #beautiful #capebretonisland #yourheartneverleaves #mysecondhome #favourite

Hello all, sorry I've haven't posted, I was busy. But I must say yesterday I downloaded all of the Casting Crowns songs. They are absolutely amazing. Definitely check them out if you haven't already. Their song just be held, has been playing on repeat for like the past 3 months. I am a huge Christian music fan. When I feel I can't pray anything or can't find the words. I google how I'm feeling and put Christian songs and then just play it on repeat. It's definitely a way to pray to God in a different way. People always say pray the most when it's hardest to pray. And I can't say that I've mastered that. But I'm learning as the days go by. I'm learning that no matter where I go in life, God will be with me. No matter what mistakes I've made or are going to make he will forgive me. All I have to do is ask. God's love is endless. Do not ever think for a second your not worthy. You are beautiful, and you are a child of God, he loves all of his children equally. He does not forget you. He does not forsake you. He is always with you. Just sometimes he is silent. He puts you through tests. But he is always there to coach you through, to run beside you as you cross the finish line. He is with you. Christ lives in me. I shall not be afraid, I will open my heart to his love. @castingcrownsofficial

Well I was cleaning my room this afternoon and was listening to my Christian music/ playlist and the song Praise you in the storm was playing. And I absolutely love this song. It's so accurate in my life right now. And I lifted a pile of clothes up, I found a dime. I just sat there for a second, and said a little thank you prayer. Sometimes you just need that sign that someone above is watching over you, and your not alone in all this. #dimesfromheaven #catholic #feelinggodworkingthroughme #godmademe #godsplan #godschild #praisethelord #praiseyouinthestorm #dontgiveup #keepyourheadup #hesmyrock #pray #teenagecatholic #catholicofinstagram #faith🙏 #christiansongs #christianity #christiangirlsrock #trusthim #toughtimesdontlast

I sat at the waterfront today 10 minutes before I had to be in work and I listened to this song. I chose this song because it was how I was feeling. Me and my best friend Maks used to jam to this one all the time. It's accurate for how I'm feeling because me and him used to sit on the big red chair screaming this to the top of our lungs. I can't wait for whenever he come back to Canada or I got there. Just so that we are together again. Stay with me. He's never far from me but sometimes you just need physical contact and conversation. Sometimes you just need a hug from your best friend. #staywithme #missingyou #distancesucks #hesinlondonengland #imhereinnovascotia #milesawaybutclosetoheart #bestfriend #shelburnewaterfront #catholic #followme #findyourself #dontgiveup #hesmyrock #thisisoursong #heshereinspirit #godsplan #trusthim #teenagecatholic #canadiangirl #catholicteens #christianity #ford #carjamming #bigredchair #novascotia #makeslifeworthwhile💕 #wantyouherewithme #lonely

God made rainy days ☔️🌧 so that we can play in the puddles. If you want a rainbow 🌈 you've gotta deal with the rain first.
I've had to deal with a lot of rain in my life lately. But I'm so lucky to have people to lean on. To keep me going. My mom especially. She is my biggest supporter and I can't imagine where I'd be without her amazing advice, shoulder to cry on, and just being an ear to hear all my rants. She understands me better than anyone else does, because her heart is just as big and kind as mine. And she knows what it's like to be such a kind person and when people take advantage of my big heart. I love my mom and thank God for her daily! 🤗❤️ #makeslifeworthwhile💕 #mymomisthebest #godschild #blessed #troubledwaters #gonnakeepgoing #catholic #canadiangirl #rainyday #teenagecatholic #lightattheendofthetunnel #praisethelord #godisgood #livinglifetofullest #followme
