The Pope’s Mass at the Aeronautics Stadium in Cairo
True faith - The Pope insists - is one that makes us more charitable, more merciful, more honest and more humane. It moves our hearts to love everyone without counting the cost, without distinction and without preference. It makes us see the other not as an enemy to be overcome, but a brother or sister to be loved, served and helped. It spurs us on to spread, defend and live out the culture of encounter, dialogue, respect and fraternity. It gives us the courage to forgive those who have wronged us, to extend a hand to the fallen, to clothe the naked, to feed the hungry, to visit the imprisoned, to help orphans, to give drink to those who thirst, and to come to the aid of the elderly and those in need. True faith leads us to protect the rights of others with the same zeal and enthusiasm with which we defend our own. Indeed, the more we grow in faith and knowledge, the more we grow in humility and in the awareness of our littleness.” “God - Pope Francis concludes -is pleased only by a faith that is proclaimed by our lives, for the only fanaticism believers can have is that of charity! Any other fanaticism does not come from God and is not pleasing to him!” “Do not be afraid to love everyone, friends and enemies alike, because the strength and treasure of the believer lies in a life of love!” #donotbeafraid#Jesus#God#HolySpirit#PopeFrancis

My prayer is unto Thee, O Lord. — Ps. 59 : 13. .
O GOD, our Father, give us Thy blessing in these moments of spiritual communion with Thee. We come before Thee in a deep sense of our own unworthiness. We have sinned in thought and word and deed. Yet hear us, as we turn to Thee again with penitent hearts. Forgive us our sins; grant us again Thy peace. And give us grace to serve Thee in newness of life, to the glory of Thy Holy Name. We thank Thee for Thy constant goodness; for the bounty which has supplied our wants; for the providence which has kept us from harm; for the love which has redeemed us from sin; for the grace which has helped us to serve Thee on earth; and for the promise of an inheritance in Heaven. Keep us from the evil in ourselves; from the evil in the world about us; from all selfish, unkind, and impure thoughts; from all hard and bitter words; from doing that which we ought not to do, and from leaving undone that which we ought to do. Keep us in the constant sense of our membership in Christ; in the thought that we are His disciples and followers; in the love of our Father's house, and in the hope of our eternal home. We ask all in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Angus Buchan put the call out for South Africans to pray for their nation, and 1.5 million people gathered to worship and pray! How amazing is that!? Never forget the power of praying together 🙏🏼 Who can you gather to pray for Australia and New Zealand?

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time." (1 Corinthians 15:1-8) Now read Isaiah 53. #GloryToGod#GodsWillBeDone#DailyBread#Jesus#Messiah#SonOfGod#HolySpirit#Truth#Bible#Tanakh#Torah#NewTestament#Gospel#GoodNews#GladTidings#Grace#Mercy#Forgiveness#Repent

1 Corinthians 10:23-24
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.
1 Corinthians 10: 21-22 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?
Um dia já me chamaram de louca por acreditar que Deus é capaz de realizar sonhos, já disseram que sonhava alto demais, já me pediram pra por o pé no chão,mas poq sonhar pequeno quando se tem um Deus tão grande, e poq colocar meu pé no chão quando toda minha vida está nas mãos de Deus ?! #DeusRealizaSonhos#mybestfriend#Jesus#mylove#GoodMorning
