Adoração // Acampamento de Ano Novo

God does not want your suffering, but He can reverse it in grace.

Accept the problems you have to draw close to God. The Lord does not want your suffering, but He can take advantage of this difficult situation to pour graces into your life. Today, therefore, decide for love! The Lord awaits your decision. It is necessary to translate the love that is in you into concrete gestures.

His love will overcome everything! Love does everything in all, because God is love, and there is no other love but His.

Give love always! So when the suffering comes, the size of it will be proportional to the graces that God will pour into your life!

Your brother,

Let your boyfriends learn: “Just because you love each other so much, you can not have sex!” Boy, learn: You can show all the affection to the girl you date or who you are engaged to without genitality.

Woman, do not abuse your femininity and do not want your boyfriend or boyfriend to give you “evidence”. The victim will be you!

Both: Do not make bait to attract the fish, because it follows the instinct, and the first to be caught is the bait. Do not ruin your life and your youth; Do not ruin your marriage and the one God has chosen for you.

Do not provoke the sexuality of the one whom the Lord gave you to be firm and secure in your marriage, to stand in your home. What unites a couple is not sex, it is not genitality, but love, tenderness and affection. Love each other deeply, first by dialogue, by presence, by security received, by love and fidelity.

The recipe for holiness is love.

It is God’s will that we be holy. He himself reveals to us: “For I am the Lord your God. Sanctify yourselves and be holy, for I am holy “(Lev. 11.44).

When a doctor of the law asked Jesus about the greatest commandment, He used a passage from the book of Deuteronomy to respond: ” You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might (Dt 6,5). He added: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Mt 22:39).

The recipe for holiness is the love that is realized through concrete attitudes. In addition to showing us that this is the way to holiness and that love is made through concrete actions, Jesus tells us that we will be judged by love. He says: what we do or fail to do in concrete gestures of love is to Him that we do or not do.

At this trial, we will either receive the maximum prize or the maximum penalty. He wants our holiness.Therefore, give us an order: “Be holy, for I am holy.”

not based on screaming; but by the power of the Holy Spirit

“Not by might nor by might, but by my Spirit, declares the Lord with all power” (Zech. 4: 6)

Often, we want to sort things out by force, at the base of it all we scream. Thus, moved by emotions, we speak, fight and curse. But our emotions betray us and hurt us. Many things we do because of our emotions, when, in fact, we should never have acted that way. We get carried away by emotion, by feeling. In general, we face the problems of marriage driven by feeling, by emotion. We spoke what we should not have said and spoiled many things.

Let your heart and your head learn this: to forgive your brother or sister, open your heart and live in love. If it is not for the Spirit, we cannot really forgive. How many parents were disappointed with their son, or daughter and put them out of the house! But it is necessary to change and not solve things like that.Many children also live in resentment and sorrow for things their parents did, but it must be said that this revolt does not come from God. People make mistakes, even good parents make mistakes.

It is necessary to live the love, do not continue being puppet of the tempter, that, coward who puts the poison of revolt in your heart. What the tempter most desires, today, is to blow up our families, and he uses us to achieve this. He looks for and places in our heads reasons to disappoint us. He wants to use us as “cannon fodder” to blow up our family.

Disappointment makes us act instinctively and do things we did not even know we could do. If it is not let out, it explodes inside. That is where we become instruments of the tempter, this can not continue. But in this situation where you are alone, God can help you. Sometimes it’s not revolt, just hurt and resentment. Many people do not have peace anymore, because they live in disappointment, they feel betrayed, they live “exploding”.

The reasons why you are resentful and sad can kill you. God wants to put an end to their wrong attitudes. It is He who is there to give you his hand. The Lord is telling you, “Open to receive my Holy Spirit,” He is giving it to you for free.

Pregação com Pe.Márcio José - Festa do Pai das Misericórdias

God be glorified in sickness

“Lord, the one you love is sick.”

That’s what they told Jesus when they told him that his friend Lazarus was sick. It is a word of great consolation, told to someone who is truly loved. For this message, Jesus has an answer:

“This sickness does not lead to death, but it is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by him” (Jn 11,4). God, by loving us, calls us to believe in this great truth.

Jesus expresses the will of God. Whatever disease or situation we present to the Lord will serve His glory, because in this way the Son of God will be glorified. I have seen how the Lord has healed people who are deceived by doctors because of serious illnesses.

By entrusting and crying out to the Lord, people in the terminal phase, in extreme situations and affected by incurable diseases were healed; True miracles have happened. What will guarantee us faith in the word is constant and persistent prayer. We can exercise acts of faith in prayer:

“This disease will not end with death, it will serve the glory of God: it is through it that the Son of God is to be glorified! I believe, Lord, but increase my faith; Strengthen my faith. This disease will not end with death, it will serve the glory of God: it is through it that the Son of God is to be glorified. I believe in this truth, Lord.   I will always repeat it, for the righteous will live by faith; The children of God will live by faith. By faith I will live your miracles. Amen!

This is how we will partake of the greatness of God as our ancestors: because they believed, they sang the praises of God.

Adoração ao Santíssimo

We are renewed in the Holy Spirit every day

We need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit every day. Our prayer groups and communities need to be wells to which we return each week, people are in need of the spirit of God.

Our prayer groups and communities need to be like swimming pools where we dive into the Holy Spirit. To get dry, we should plunge into prayer, praise, worship the God to be filled again. All impurity and every contamination arising during the week is cleansed, because we go back to the source, the well, or better still, again we bathe.

We’re ready to start over. We are renewed in the spirit every day, maintaining a life of prayer, of participation in the sacraments of confession and the Eucharist, forsaking all sin, living in charity with the brothers and sisters, feeding the soul with the word of God and working for his Kingdom in Union with the Church and its pastors.

Your brother,

Monsignor Jonas Abib
