Meet the Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order!⠀
.⠀
These noblemen, from 13th century Italy, left their lives of luxury for lives of piety and poverty. Their counter-cultural lifestyle eventually attracted so many followers that they established a new order, the Servants of Mary. ⠀
.⠀
What in your life or our culture is keeping you from growing closer to Christ?⠀

✝️Church of Saint Frances Cabrini, Omaha, NE. Built in 1908.
Luke 10: 38-42

Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”

✝️Church of Saint Frances Cabrini, Omaha, NE. Built in 1908. 🙏Saint Elizabeth of Hungary ✝️ (left) and Saint Catherine of Alexandria ✝️☦️ (right). Both women died young, martyrs’ death.
🙏Elizabeth was the daughter of king Andrew II of Hungary and the wife of Louis (Saint) IV, Landgrave of Thuringia. One day - as she was carrying bread to the poor - Elizabeth was stopped by her husband. Let’s just say that Louis was sort of alarmed by his wife’s charity and generosity. He demanded to see what was hidden under her cloak. As Elizabeth opened her cloak - it was full roses (pic. 2). 🙏Catherine was the daughter of the governor of Alexandria, Egypt. She was well educated, well read, highly intellectual woman. Catherine protested emperor Maximian (sic. Eusebius) cruelty towards Christians and was martyred for her faith in Christ. 🙏Catherine is depicted with her weapons of martyrdom. Her left hand is on a spiked wheel that’s sort of hidden behind her. You can see a wedding ring on her left hand. Catherine had a dream in which Christ gave her a ring saying: "Behold, today I take you as my pure bride forever – diligently preserve this trust, taking no earthly bridegroom."
🙏In her right hand she holds the Palm of Martyrdom - symbol of victory of eternal life over death and sin. 🙏Both women are presented in Heavenly Glory wearing Incorruptible Crowns (1 Corinthians 9:25) 👇👇👇

The season of love is not over yet, for I am convinced that Lent is primarily about love. .
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. // John 15:13

CATHOLIC BOOKS.
G.K. Chesterton had it right: "The business of selling books is in its nature the most perilous and speculative of businesses." (G.K. Chesterton, "On Books"). Still, I spent the weekend living dangerously at the 51st California International Antiquarian Book Fair in Pasadena. #rarebooks #giftbooks #catholicculture #yourhumblebookseller #lifeofabookseller #catholicbooks #exploreyourfaith #librorumhelluo #bibliophile #bibliomania #firstedition #churchinyourhands #booksofourfathers #booksareart #booksellerlife #finebooks

Echo Yes ✨ ➕God, you are my ever-patient creator.
You are my abundant invitation.
Help me to respond to the layers of my life with a Yes you have heard before. Help me echo the Yes that Mary gave in these places of my life…➕ #loyolapress #prayer #catholicculture

Olympics in Korea call for one of our favourite Friday suppers. Sesame-soy black bean, coconut rice and Kimchi. Umami, sweet, sour, salty, bitter, crunchy, soft, contrasting color, cheap, delicious, kid-approved this dish hits all the right notes.

Today marks my 4 year anniversary of making the best decision of my life- to become a Catholic. Every day, as a Catholic, it is my duty to strive for heaven! Heaven is my destination, yet the road home is the most difficult journey. Please continue to pray for me and thank you all for your continuous prayers. I LOVE BEING CATHOLIC! #catholicconvert #catholic #catholicculture

“The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the sacrifice, dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye, heart, and mouth all that happens at the altar. Further, you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens at the altar. When acting in this way you have prayed Holy Mass.” - His Holiness, Pope St. Pius X

✝️Church of St. Frances Cabrini, Omaha, NE. Built in 1908. .
⚪️In this window we have 2 early Christian Saints (before 450AD) - Saint Barbara ✝️☦️ (left) and Saint Agatha ✝️☦️ (right). Both women died young martyrs’ death. Look at their beautiful faces, rich clothing and objects they hold. Every detail tells a story. .
⚪️Barbara was born into a noble family in Nicomedia (now Izmit, Turkey). As the girl blossomed into a beautiful young lady Barbara’s father locked her up in a tower, while searching for a suitable husband for his daughter. It was during that time Barbara discovered God and was secretly baptized. This infuriated her pagan father and he turned Barbara to the authorities. She was humiliated and tortured, and at the end beheaded by her father. She died a martyr’s death in 302 AD. .
⚪️Saint Barbara is depicted wearing a crown, holding a sward - the instrument of her martyrdom - in her left hand and raising a ciborium with the host in her right hand. The meaning of the sward is clear, but let’s look closer at the crown and the ciborium. .
⚪️Saint Barbara is presented not in her earthly life but in her spiritual state in Heavenly Glory, adorned with the Incorruptible Crown (1 Corinthians 9:25). The ciborium in her right hand informs that she is the protectress against sudden death - the depriver of Confession and Holy Communion. .
⚪️Agatha was born into a wealthy, noble family in Catania (now Palermo, Cicili). Beautiful Agatha declined unwanted advances of the Catania Prefect and as a result was persecuted under the anti Christian laws of the time. She was humiliated and tortured and died in prison. 👇👇👇
