"There is a cause for rejoicing here!" I Peter 1:6 from Vespers

The Pope turned down lunch with the people of power and prestige and joined the homeless at Catholic Charities!

Half way through Vespers in NYC - St Patrick's with the Pope - I went to Vespers/Evening prayer/the office on my phone and they were following word for word.  All the religious the world across were sharing the same prayer!   I was super excited to reread the reading from I Peter as it was so powerful!
There is cause for rejoicing here.   You may for a time have to suffer the distress of many trials, but  this is so that you faith, which is more precious than the passing splendor of fire-tried gold, may  by it genuineness lead to praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ appears.  Although you have never seen him, you love him, and without seeing you now believe in him, and rejoice with inexpressible joy touched with glory because you are achieving faith's goal, your salvation.  I Peter 1:6-9  Read in English in Vespers shared with our Pope Francis!
 Stopped in for Adoration this afternoon, and Holy Father was so much on my heart with all his requests for our prayers and so touched by the way he is touching our "jaded" country.  Yes, I am hanging on every word from EWTN, but I have found myself amazed to hear such admiration and words of Faith... So I took this picture from my blog and put it close to Our Lord in the monstrance!  Prayers for the Truth to be known and believed.
 Took a lot of Mary with her bunnies last night...

 Soft and fluffy with twitchy noses.  Sisters that love to be together!

So thrilled that our church is being shown as the LIGHT/LIFE/LOVE that it is!  Bless-bless, Barb
