The Eucharist is like a Furnace of Love. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is there, offering Himself for our salvation, worshipping God the Father, praying for us, and giving thanks for so many blessings we receive. When we receive Jesus—this Furnace of Love—in communion, our love is increased, and we receive all the graces necessary to become holy. Today…
 
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to go to Mount Calvary, in Jerusalem, where our Lord was crucified, and there pray and bring to God all our intentions and concerns?

Why was the ground Moses was standing on “holy ground”? (Exodus 3:5). Why did Jesus expel the money-changers and people who sold animals from the Temple of Jerusalem? (John 2:13). It’s because “sacred” things, places, times and people are meant to be treated in a different way than things that we have for daily (or “profane”) use. Today we’ll speak…
 
Many miracles have happened thanks to touching or praying before the relics of the saints. Powerful signs have taken place by means of a miraculous medal or the Scapular of our Lady of Mount Carmel.
