Happy Feast Day of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton!

This educator was my favorite saint growing up. In my own childhood Catechism class, I first heard this ♪song♫ (Matthew 6:33) when we watched a video about her life…

With my own dreams of helping establish a Ca†holic school in my hometown, I look to St. Elizabeth for inspiration and seek her intercession.

Elaine's Baptism

Throwback Thursday: My Baptism on my Papa Jun‘s Birthday

As Catholics, we prepare for our Sacraments that celebrate the miraculous mysteries of †Christ† and deepen our involvement in the Church. We begin by being baptized.

Throwback Thursday: My 1st Communion at Holy Family Catholic Church

Then we have our Firsts: Confession to repent  for our sins and Communion to receive the Eucharist. As a matter of fact, I’ve had many of my R.E. students who’ve undergone their interviews in preparation of their First Communion, including a couple of them today, and who’re attending their retreat thereof this weekend.

We then make our choice to be confirmed into the Church and accepting our Catholicism whole♥heart♥edly. Some of us go through this Sacrament as minors, while others decide to as adults. From there, we can proceed onto the next Sacraments: Marriage, Holy Orders if we’re called to the clergy or religious life, and Anointing of the Sick. GOD will lead us into these Sacraments if we listen to His calling ~ whether it be to spend our lives with another believer in holy matrimony or to lead a religious life ~ and also when we’re in need for healing ~ whether for physical or spiritual struggles.

Reaching these aforementioned milestones is not easy. Yet suffering can bring us closer to GOD if we turn to him in those times of adversity. Nowadays, I’ve seen more requirements needed to make  the Sacraments, including classes, interviews and community service. I think that these steps are worthy of taking in order to enrich the journey.

On our first day of Religious Education, my Church Bestie, Evie, suggested that we wear Bible-inspired shirts.

Since then, I’ve been sporting a different one ever week (with the exception of last night when I featured George Strait with his ♥LOVE♥ is Everything shirt in both my speech and our RE class ~ I pointed out his nervousness before his final concert to my Public Speaking students then played ♪I Saw GOD Today♫ at Church).

Happy Belated Labor Day!

Today’s Thirsty Thursday segment refers to doing GOD’s work, not Man’s. 

Glorify GOD’s grace with our gifts. 

My Church buddy, Joe, reminded me that through our ministry, we’re mainly here to serve GOD above all else ~ giving him our BEST. 

Thanks to Joe, Evie and I’ve embarked on team teaching Religious Education! 

Our endeavor can help prepare us for the Catholic school, but either way, we’ll be reaping our rewards to head closer to Heaven.
