Santa Missa com Monsenhor Jonas AbibThen the Nations will call you blessed, as this will be for you a delightful land says the Lord of hosts “(Ml 3:1-12).

This word of God leads us to a joyful way of living, because we started to see that God is righteous in everything and wants to see in us a life of blessings,grace. He loves us and wants to see us happy, and there will be  joy, blessing in our home, family, community.That’s what God wants us to do. More than ever, we all have to do that role of John the Baptist, be forerunner of Jesus.

God, in the book of Malachi, says the arrival of precursor: today, the Holy Spirit moves them all to be “precursors of Jesus” for the new coming from him on Earth. Nobody can pass unnoticed, apologize and say I didn’t know this day was coming. 

Remember that the Gospel passage that speaks of the lamps, the bridesmaids and reckless. Are  we those virgins? Do you or don’t you have the kerosene for your lamps? God doesn’t want you to worry on when He will come, but he wants to come to us.

God bless you,

Faith is the certainty of hope  in what we don’t see

“How can I question what God can do?”. We all traveled a path in the certainty that we are pilgrims on this earth, because our goal is Heaven; and we walk this way, we walk toward the cross and we face many rocks and obstacles along the way.

Today, I want to share a little of what guides my everyday life in search of overcoming the challenges that I encounter at Canção Nova and in my personal life. I seek to live the faith, just as it says in the first letter of St. John: “this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.”

Faith is the certainty of waiting for that which you don’t see, and I believe that the victory was given to me.

Follow three steps to walk my way. The first step: know that the battle is not mine, but of God. The second: looking at the history of the people of God, behold how many victories and wonders the Lord held; Finally, my own life is a great experience. Today I know: I can’t doubt what God can do for me.

Sin leaves a negative mark on our souls

Adoração ao Santíssimo Sacramento
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sin is a fault against reason, truth and right conscience, it is an offense against God (1849-1850 CCC). Sin leaves a negative mark in us, it’s like a stain on a garment. Whoever owns a House knows that a stain is almost impossible to remove. So I can compare this to sin.

When we sin, this mark remains in us, it takes our liberty, imprisons us and tie us down. There’s only one way to free ourselves of this spiritual dirt: The Sacrament of Confession.

Confession “get stains” out of the soul, we are washed clean of the marks of sin and restored by the power of the love and mercy of God.

My brothers, if there is something to confess, please seek a priest. Don’t let enslaved by evil.

Self-knowledge helps us in our weakness and leads us to be better

conhecer o coração

Our self-knowledge of our weakness brings forth in us humility and true peace. Here are the Beatitudes of tears of which the Gospel speaks not those easy and sensitive tears that express nothing, but those tears deep of the heart, these returns and conversions that call us to humility and the painful heartache of sins committed, that contrition of the heart.

In the Gospel we see those tears our Lord called “Blessed”: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” (5.4 Mt), the forgiven sinner’s tears, the tears of Peter who denied the master, tears of my heart, that you and I have experienced and that God wants us to concede to us.

God provides, God will provide. Trust! His mercy won’t be lacking.

What is your life in your life?

I got a scratchpad and noticed that it had a white and a black part. I wondered what to do with the black part. Looking in a small box, I found a black pencil and a white pencil, and it was written on black paper.

Many times, your life is “black” because you did not pray or move the bottom of the box, as I did, to find the right pencil for every occasion.

It is necessary to move the box, it is necessary to go to the bottom of the heart, because, when we seek the solution, the Father always reveals himself. We will need penance, fasting, and a lot of knees on the ground to overcome the obstacles of life.

The best administrator, who is God, never has in his hands only black pencil or white, he has the recipe for them, He sees all.

Always I reflect that God is merciful, but is also just

entenda_mais_sobre_a_misericordia_de_deus_e_a_justiça

“Abraham said: ‘ my Lord do not be angry, if I say it one more time: what if there were only ten? ‘ He replied: ‘ because of the ten, not destroy ‘. Having finished speaking, the Lord withdrew, and Abraham went back to your tent “(Gn -33 18.32).

These days, I went to mass and  was reading this and thinking about the mercy of God.

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by immoral practices, the debauchery that people no longer listened to God, and that, because of your disobedience it should be destroyed. With the call of Abraham the God, This said if there were at least 10 righteous in those two cities, they would not be destroyed.

Brothers, I was thinking that we Christians should be those 10 righteous people praying every day for non-destruction of the world. Always I reflect that God is merciful, but is also very fair, and he will charge us for each incoherent attitude that we have, for every witness that we don’t do. Sometimes, I wonder if the world is not like that, because I’m not giving my testimony. Therefore, I should fight to be that salt on Earth and that light in the world.

I need to have the courage to contradict the world and to claim to be of God is much better.
