For those who follow me on my personal account, you might know that I made rosaries at one point. I haven't done one for a long time, so to fill me during my breaks in making art (and mostly to keep me from getting too distracted), I decided to take up pearl-knotting, and made a rosary with the string of genuine South China Sea (West Philippine Sea) freshwater pearls which I bought in Manila when I came back home this May. The centerpiece is a medal of St. John Paul II (his papal arms on the reverse) with a Latin Miraculous Medal hanging from its side, and a simple yet very elegant crucifix. I'm selling for $50 + free US-bound shipping. DM me for more info.

Every time you go to confession, immerse yourself in My mercy, with great trust, so that I may pour the bounty of My grace upon your soul. When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy.” - St. Faustina (Divine Mercy in My Soul) #mercy #comfession #divinemercy #stfaustina #pope #johnpaulii #jpii #saint #honesty #courage

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 107 Reading 1 Jer 23:1-6 Woe to the shepherds who mislead and scatter the flock of my pasture, says the LORD.  Therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, against the shepherds who shepherd my people: You have scattered my sheep and driven them away. You have not cared for them, but I will take care to punish your evil deeds. I myself will gather the remnant of my flock from all the lands to which I have driven them and bring them back to their meadow; there they shall increase and multiply. I will appoint shepherds for them who will shepherd them so that they need no longer fear and tremble; and none shall be missing, says the LORD. Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up a righteous shoot to David; as king he shall reign and govern wisely, he shall do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah shall be saved, Israel shall dwell in security. This is the name they give him: "The LORD our justice." Responsorial Psalm Ps 23:1-3, 3-4, 5, 6 R. (1) The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. Alleluia Jn 10:27 R. Alleluia, alleluia. My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Mk 6:30-34 The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves toa deserted place. People saw them leaving and many came to know about it. They hastened there on foot from all the towns and arrived at the place before them. When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. ••• #Catholic #MerryMaryCatholic #catholicchristian #DailyReading #DailyMass #GospelAccordingtoMark #JohnPaulII #GoodShepherd #Psalm23

“I found a Time magazine cover of Pope John Paul from the June 18,1979 edition. It was amazing; there was a cross on his vestments almost the way I designed mine. I marched into the office the next morning with the magazine to show what I thought was proof of acceptability. They both looked at each other and said, 'Well, if the Pope has it, it must be okay!' That was that, and the Independent cross was born."

"It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream of happiness; he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be grounded down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal." . This is probably my favorite JP2 quote ever (but really, impossible to choose). I hand wrote it and taped it to my mirror years ago, and reading a line here and there in the morning as I get ready has been a hopeful and powerful way to start my day. It's from a speech he gave at World Youth Day 2000, and the whole thing is just as powerful. I put a link to the Vatican transcript if you need to read something beautiful today. 😊 . . . #JMJ #jp2weloveyou #johnpaulii #worldyouthday #worldyouthday2000 #dreamofhappiness #catholicwomen #bissisterhood #hope #catholicquotes #saints #saintjohnpaulii #prayforus

It is good for you and I to "just be" in creation. To contemplate it, and to let it raise our minds to our Creator. . It's something that we have lost in our modern day. . We are often at our desks, in a classroom, at a restaurant. Inside. . "I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator. A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all you intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made." - St. Basil . "The aesthetic value of creation cannot be overlooked. Our very contact with nature has a deep restorative power; contemplation of its magnificence imparts peace and serenity. The Bible speaks again and again of the goodness and beauty of creation, which is called to glorify God." - St. Pope John Paul II
