Missa com Frei Josué no Acampamento Fé e MilagresIn the sacrament of Penance, there is peace

Who remembers the times when, in seeking the sacrament of penance, after confessing, you heard this sentence: “Your sins are forgiven!”?

In important situations in my life, in faith seeking a priest to confess me, I experienced the Lord speaking to me as he said to the woman: “And Jesus said unto the woman, Thy sins are forgiven!” What a peace, my God gives to the repentant sinner !

“Then the guests began to think, ‘Who is this that even forgives sins?’ But Jesus said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you. Go in peace! “(Lk 7, 47-50) The effect of God’s forgiveness on the penitent’s heart is so great, that he has the life-transforming power of a lifetime. He who seeks forgiveness of sins frequently in Christ not only receives a new life, but gains divine strength to overcome sin. Jesus shows this power through love and mercy achieved: “the many sins that she has committed are forgiven , because she showed much love. He who is forgiven,  little shows little love “(Luke 7:47).

Jesus, I trust in you!

Padre Marcelo Rossi celebra missa de encerramento do Acampamento PHNWe must be humble and choose to love our neighbor truly .

The reason for our existence must be to love God above all things with total commitment and to build with our brethren a brotherly and loving relationship inspired by the love of God Himself. However, if our love is not mirrored in the Father’s love and does not reflect upon the person next to us, if we fail to seek only our own interests, it will prove the most difficult conversion of all. To deny ourselves for the good of the other requires a great deal of us, and it is possible only with the help of God. As St. Paul teaches us, love “is not selfish, does not become angry, does not take into account the evil suffered; it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth. Love excuses everything, believes everything, expects everything, bears all “(1 Cor 13: 5-7). For this reason, for love not to pass in our life as a summer rain, we must be humble and choose to truly love our neighbor. For this, in fact, to happen, it will be necessary to forgive and ask forgiveness many times, overcoming all the barriers that close our hearts.

Jesus, I trust in you!

Dom João Inácio Müller celebra missa de Ordenação Diaconal no Santuário do Pai das MisericórdiasThe Lord wants us to shape and transform

God the Father sent us His Son Jesus to show us that through obedience and the struggle for truth and holiness we can reach the joy of the resurrection. Therefore, we can never be discouraged; we must seek in Christ the strength to overcome all tribulations.

“My son, do not despise the correction of the Lord, do not be discouraged when He rebukes you; for the Lord corrects whom He loves and punishes whom he accepts as his son ” (Heb. 12: 5-6).

The process of building a new vessel is not easy, neither for the clay nor for the potter, because every work of creation goes through its transformations. The potter must stir, break, alter; and the clay, in turn, must accept these interventions.

The same is true of us: God wants new vessels for us, but for this to happen, we must obey Him, even if we often do not understand why. Let us pray, that the Lord may make us docile to His holy will:

“Lord Jesus, because we are made of clay, mold us according to Your infinite love and Your incomparable goodness. Give us the grace to seek Thy face, and thus we shall be better, for a person is fulfilled only when he reveals his Lord! “

Adoração ao Santíssimo Sacramento

Prayer fills our life with hope

“He [the Lord] will hear the prayer of the helpless and will not reject his supplication” (Ps 102: 18 )

From the moment we wake up, we must talk to God and let Him speak to us. It is this communion with Him – through prayer – that fills our life with hope. We were created for God, and we are only truly happy when we seek Him and live in a deep communion with Him, allowing us to fill each moment with divine love.

Let us pray today, throughout the day, and ask the Lord for the grace to experience His mercy and be sustained by it. “Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come to you. Do not hide your face from me “(Ps 102,1).

Jesus I trust in you!

Monsenhor Jonas Abib celebra missa em comemoração aos 35 anos da Fundação João Paulo II

“Whosoever believeth in him shall not be ashamed” (Rom 10:11)

Each day, the Lord points the way for our lives, and we need to be attentive to it. One day is never the same as the other, even if we want it.

How good it is to wake up and then deliver our day to the Lord in prayer so that He will lead us! When we put our trust in God, we are never disoriented and confused because He takes our heart’s desires seriously. The Word of God assures us of this. Yes, whoever trusts in Him will not fail.Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

We need not be afraid to give Jesus our life, because it is from Him comes what hope. Let us say many times on this day: “Jesus is my victory!”

Jesus I trust in you!

Dunga prega durante o Acampamento PHN

Let us embrace the action of the Holy Spirit, because He can renew all things

Nothing better than starting the day by placing ourselves at the disposal of the Holy Spirit, so that He will lead us according to the will of God: “Holy Spirit, I want to live for Jesus today. I give you my mind, my emotions, my will, my intellect, my lips, my mouth, my ears, my eyes, my heart, all that I have and am. Use them for the glory of God. ”

Throughout the day, let us often pray this prayer, that we may be led by the wisdom of God. Only with His help can we make the right choices, make accurate and adjusted decisions, do good, solve situations that seem humanly impossible, deal with the various situations that arise and escape our control. Do not let our prejudices be our drivers.

Let us embrace the action of the Spirit, because He can renew all things. It only depends on us, the openness and adhesion of our heart. The Holy Spirit has a novelty for each day. Have you ever asked Him what’s new for your life today?

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me; And sent me to proclaim the good news to the poor, to heal the contrite in heart, to proclaim to the captives redemption, to the blind to restore sight, to set the captives free, to publish the year of the Lord’s favor ” (Isaiah 61: 1-2).

Life in the Spirit is dynamic, and He enthuses us and drives us, even in the midst of difficulties. Let us ask the Lord today for the grace to live in the dynamism of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus I trust in you!
