Pray for me and my three close friends. They’re like sisters to me, and right now two of them are suffering in very different ways. I want to be there for them, but I can’t, and it’s very painful. 

Reblog and say one Our Father and Hail Mary for James Foley who was beheaded in Iraq and for all those still suffering persecution.

My grandpa got attacked tonight. It was a matter of road rage gone too far. Thank God there were no real weapons involved. Someone else close to me got involved and was able to save him. Please pray for my family and for the attacker. This could have some serious consequences, and I’m worried.

But just so you guys know, my grandpa—physically at least—is ok.

I feel like I’m listening to every song ever recorded tonight lol 

If youtube is running slow for you, it’s probably my fault.

Prayer request

skylar1694:

I’ve been having issues with my dad lately and I’m almost positive things will get worse once he finds out I’m interested in joining the Catholic Church. So if you could please pray that things turn out okay between us and that I won’t let my dad talk me out of what I honestly believe God wants from me.

The story of the icon of “Unexpected Joy”

agios-o-theos:

"The sinful youth, who was nevertheless devoted to the Theotokos, was praying one day before the icon of the All-Pure Virgin before going out to commit a sin. Suddenly, he saw that wounds appeared on the Lord’s hands, feet, and side, and blood flowed from them. In horror he exclaimed, “O Lady, who has done this?” The Mother of God replied, “You and other sinners, because of your sins, crucify My Son anew.” Only then did he realize how great was the depth of his sinfulness. For a long time he prayed with tears to the All-Pure Mother of God and the Savior for mercy. Finally, he received the unexpected joy of the forgiveness of his sins."
