Sincere Praise

TKC!

“Praise is the mode of love which always has some element of joy in it.” CS Lewis

     Our world today is generally too meager in offering praise.  Not flattery, not manipulation…sincere praise for a job well done.

God bless,

Moving on

TKC!

“The real trouble about the duty of forgiveness is that you do it with all your might on Monday and then find on Wednesday that it hasn’t stayed put and all has to be done over again.” CS Lewis

     At times, you can only “move on” with the help of God’s grace. But you need to let him know how bad you want it…

God bless,

Dealing with difficult people

TKC!

“It is great wisdom to know how to be silent and to look at neither the remarks, nor the deeds, nor the lives of others.” St. John of the Cross

Most of the time, the nastiness of others has nothing to do with you.  Let it go, don’t “react” and try to feel some compassion for this hurt person.

God bless,

Never give up

TKC!

“Never give up on prayer, and should you find dryness and difficulty, persevere in it for this very reason.  God often desires to see what love your soul has, and love is not tried by ease and satisfaction.”  St. John of the Cross

    Stick with it, don’t worry about your feelings or the apparent dryness…Jesus is there and he is simply delighted that you are spending this time with him.

God bless,

Love For Christ in the Eucharist

TKC!

“Anyone who has a special devotion to the sacred Eucharist and who tries to repay Christ’s infinite love for us with an eager and unselfish love of his own, will experience and fully understand—and this will bring great delight and benefit to his soul—just how precious is a life hidden with Christ in God and just how worthwhile it is to carry on a conversation with Christ, for there is nothing more consoling here on earth, nothing more efficacious for progress along the paths of holiness.” Blessed Paul VI

God bless,

Serving others

TKC!

“Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.”

― C.S. Lewis

    Do you live to serve or be served, to make others happy or to “work it” so they can make you happy?  Your answer decides how happy you will be today.

God bless,

Fr. Michael Sliney, LC

Tough Love

TKC!

“All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.” Blessed Paul VI

     Parents, tough love and having your kids share the burden of household chores, is one of the greatest gifts you can give your children.  They may seem to be “overwhelmed”, but just check their activity on social media and you will discover plenty of available time to chip in.

God bless,
