St. Joseph's Church (Polish: Kościół św. Józefa) - is a historic #Roman #Catholic
church in #Podgórze
district of #Kraków
, at Podgórski Square on the northern slopes of the Krzemionki foothills in the south-central part of the city.
The church was built between 1905 and 1909, and designed by Jan Sas Zubrzycki, in Gothic Revival style. It is the largest church in the area.
The both physical and emotional scars I have from youth group games is disturbing 😬 Okay so please tell me if you’ve played this game before or if it’s just a scary coincidence that every single youth group and retreat I’ve been to seem to think that this is a great game 😂
“Give me an army praying the rosary and we will conquer the world.” - Pope Blessed Pius IX
My intention is to build community.
My intention is to encourage the rosary prayer.
My intention is through prayer you find authentic friendship.
Starting next week we will launch over 50 groups of women who will recite the rosary together virtually every week. 📿 Let us know how we can pray for you! And please pray for us. ❤️ If you are interested in joining I will launch another wave in September 👭

"Fear not, Zachary, for thy prayer is heard: and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son. And thou shalt call his name John.
And thou shalt have joy and gladness: and many shall rejoice in his nativity.
For he shall be great before the Lord and shall drink no wine nor strong drink: and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. And he shall convert many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias: that he may turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people." ~ Luke 1:13-17
From the Gospel of the Vigil of the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.

“His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 2:5 NABRE
Mary’s words are in invitation to us to follow the will of her Son. Each time I find myself in Adoration or in front of the Blessed Sacrament, I pray that I will be open to following the will of Jesus. I hand over everything to Jesus, ask Him to take away that which prevents me from doing His will – the barriers and the walls I build and the temptation to sin. – take it all and leave only what is good. I also continue to ask for guidance, that I may know His will for me and that I will be a faithful servant. It‘s hard to hand it all over and to be open to doing what He is calling us to do. How often do we ignore His call and expect Him to hear our cries?

Well... he’s right... ✝️
On Immigration with St. Aquinas:
Saint Thomas: “Man’s relations with foreigners are twofold: peaceful, and hostile: and in directing both kinds of relation the Law contained suitable precepts.” Commentary: In making this affirmation, Saint Thomas affirms that not all immigrants are equal. Every nation has the right to decide which immigrants are beneficial, that is, “peaceful,” to the common good. As a matter of self-defense, the State can reject those criminal elements, traitors, enemies and others who it deems harmful or “hostile” to its citizens.
The second thing he affirms is that the manner of dealing with immigration is determined by law in the cases of both beneficial and “hostile” immigration. The State has the right and duty to apply its law.
The Primary duty of the State is to protect its citizens. Period. Everything else is secondary.

Have you experienced a miracle with a dying loved one? In my mother’s last months on earth, she kept asking to see my son, Danny. She said she had something to give him. I asked Danny to visit with her and he did. He said Grandma didn’t give him anything, but he enjoyed the peace of being in her presence.
The day before my mother passed, she was in a coma. I knew her time was coming to an end, so I had the Priest come over and bless her with the last rites. Danny was with me on this day. Check out the full story (Grandma’s Last Gift”) by going to my “Profile Link” to see the miraculous gift his grandmother (through the grace of God) blessed him with.
I pray that God would open our eyes and ears. Father God give us the ears to hear You and the eyes to see You always. I pray that Your voice would be clearer and louder than any other. In Jesus’ holy name I pray. Amen.

Book cart where I found copies of Shakespeare and Austen. 😍 There is something comforting to me when I see literature that I recognize in other countries, when I know that the truths I discovered in works by literary giants like Shakespeare and Austen are also being read around the world. It’s proof that if our words exhibit all that is good, all that is true, and all that is beautiful, they will not be bound by time, place, or language. 📚📖📝
The litany of humility is such a powerful prayer. I don’t know about you guys, but I desire to be esteemed, to be honored, praised. To be loved. But I ask God to deliver me from those desires. I think that love is something that we all desire, we all want to love someone and to be loved by them in return. But I ask God to take this desire from me, and help me to instead want Him to be loved, for others to find Him, and find love. We want to be praised and esteemed especially when we put so much work and so much of ourselves into something. But our work should be something that always points others to Christ. Others should see Christ through us, and we should see Christ in them.
Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
Can’t get over how cool this building is 😱
😹Is anyone else reminded of Garfield when they see this?😹

PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
9. I will bless every place in which an image of my Heart is exposed and honored.
Over a series of visits, Our Lord revealed to St. Margaret Mary the importance of devotion to His Sacred Heart. He asked that His heart, wounded on the cross and continually wounded by ingratitude of men for his sacrifice for them, be venerated and adored as an embodiment of His Divine mercy and love.
In the Catholic Church, the month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
St. Margaret Mary, pray for us to grow closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. ✝️ #sacredheartofjesus #promises #12promises #catholicdevotion #catholic
Helping out and speaking real quick at JUST Faith Summit was pretty cool. Going into a subject I thought I had a decent grasp on and leaving realizing I’m failing because I don’t know enough- I like that feeling. Big thanks to Tara for getting me in and letting me speak with her, it was a great experience.
I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like fresh flowers. *pauses for shock* I know, I know, it’s weird! There’s something about the smell of fresh flowers that reminds me of funerals (#catholic
). Plus, unless they’re in a vase on in the wild, fresh flowers are dead things! It’s terrible!
In spite of this, my mother has rules about table settings, and a nice table needs fresh flowers, apparently.
Hydrangeas are our compromise: they’re beautiful and colorful, but they don’t smell like flowers 😂 (Also, they grow in our yard, so that’s a nice bonus!)
What are your favorite flowers?
My friend Sergio and I have been hosting weekly art nights at FOCUS training this summer to provide a deeper community & space for artists, writers, musicians, or anyone interested in art in FOCUS. It’s been beautiful to watch the Lord bless these nights and to see how He wants to bring us to life through creating art together. I love this post from @meganvxo
about our last art night:
“‘All men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.’ -St. John Paul II // Thank you @erin.k.mcatee

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4 “Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’ 5 “But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.
13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.” . .

Marco Polo (lahir 15 September 1254 – meninggal 8 Januari 1324 pada umur 69 tahun) adalah seorang pedagang dan penjelajah Italia yang pernah menyusuri jalan sutera. Ia pergi ke Tiongkok semasa berkuasanya Dinasti Mongol. Ia belajar tentang perdagangan selagi ayah dan pamannya, Niccolo dan Maffeo, melakukan perjalanan melalui Asia dan tampaknya bertemu Kubilai Khan. Pada 1269, mereka kembali ke Venesia dan bertemu Marco untuk pertama kalinya. Mereka bertiga memulai sebuah perjalanan epik ke Asia, dan kembali setelah 24 tahun, menemukan Venice berperang dengan Geno. Marco dipenjarakan, dan mengisahkan cerita kepada teman satu selnya. Ia dibebaskan tahun 1299, menjadi pedagang kaya, menikah dan punya tiga anak.
Ia terkenal karena kisah-kisahnya sangat menarik dan aneh bagi bangsa Eropa. Pada masa itu, bangsa Barat tidak mengenal dunia Timur. Sebagian cendekiawan berpendapat bahwa Marco Polo memang pergi ke Tiongkok, tetapi tidak mengunjungi semua tempat yang digambarkan dalam bukunya (misalnya Xanadu). Salah satu kisah Marco Polo yang menarik untuk bangsa Indonesia adalah cerita tentang unicorn atau kuda bertanduk satu yang menurutnya dijumpainya di pulau Sumatra. Tetapi, ilmu pengetahuan membuktikan bahwa yang ditemukan Marco Polo itu bukanlah unicorn melainkan badak Sumatra. Ia meninggal pada 1324, dan dimakamkan di San Lorenzo. . .
