Merry †CHRIST†mas!!!

I feel blessed that my ‚ĆHoly‚Ć Hour at the ‚ô•Adoration‚ô• Chapel takes place every Thursday, especially this season, when our ‚ĆHOLYdays‚Ć fall: THANKSgiving always, as well as today on ‚ĆJESUS‚Ć’ birthday and New Year’s Day one week from today.

What can be a better way to ring in the day of ‚ĆCHRIST‚Ć’s birth than to spend some time in ‚úĆpeace‚úĆ and harmony with the ‚ĆBlessed Sacrament‚Ć?

I had the best spot at our House of ‚ĆGOD‚Ć: smack dab in front of our Nativity Scene! #PTL ‚úĆPeace‚úĆ * ‚ėľTruth‚ėľ * ‚ô•LOVE‚ô•

‘Tis the Season of Giving

Ms. Easygoing EVIE shared the story about Advent & the candles’ significance with our Catechism class!

¬†Therefore, ‚ĆCHRISTmas‚Ć is about giving to others, as a gesture of ‚ô•LOVE‚ô• of ‚ĆGOD‚Ć’s people ~ as if we were doing this for ‚ĆJESUS‚Ć Himself.

Our R.E. student, Delightful DANIELLA, generously gave us this beautiful gift! We our blessed with our little angels!

 This is our way of celebrating the coming of †CHRIST† the King.

GOoD Friday

‚ô™‚ĆJESUS, remember me, when you come into your Kingdom…‚ôę

That message stays with me as I reflect on Christ on the cross. On this Good Friday, I encourage you to read along with me the Passion of the Lord, according to John ~ from the¬†Book of John, Chapters 18-19 (John 18:1-19:42) and open up your mind, heart and soul. If tears stream down your face, like I’ve experienced, it shows your overflowing cup of faith in Him, that you too yearn¬†to be His humble servant, and to know Him is to love Him. ‚ô•

Here are the Stations of the Cross that I provided for my family last year. I included pictures that I took at Our Lady of San Juan del Valle and Holy Spirit Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, my first home in the Rio Grande Valley.

Way of the Cross

Happy Easter‚ėľ
