Time to start getting to know our members! Today we would like to introduce you to the Valenzuela Group in the Philippines, a recently consecrated Family Cenacle Group in the Philippines.
The Family Cenacle Group being a part of the Lord’s Leaven Mission Society consists of a community of prayer groups.
Each Cenacle group is unique through the experiences they share and there is something to learn from each of them.
Come and read their journey so far..
Today is a 2 day part walkthrough series with Bro Jo, as he shares with us his revelations of hell.
It is up to you if you wish to believe or not… but the purpose of this story is not to questions its authenticity.
Instead we invite you to look within your heart, find God dwelling in the deepest center of your soul, and listen to the wisdom and inspiration that God is teaching you from this story.
What can you learn from this post?
Often times we continue to serve God thinking that by being “religious” we have done our duty by him. We go to church, pray the rosary, pray novenas, participate in prayer communities and volunteer our time. Perhaps like today’s Author, we are even an influential figure within our own parish and communities… but I want to ask, do you really think that all this is enough?
Today’s story shows that God calls us to level up in our spirituality! For being religious is not complete if we are not in union with God through Divine Indwelling.
A beautiful reflection of Mary our mother and the significant role she plays in our lives. For some, Mary is not someone to be recognized with such high regard. For thousands of years she has come under attack from opinions of those leaning on their own understanding, instead of listening to the spirit dwelling within them they refuse to recognize our loving mother. But what has she done to ever deserve such treatment?
Regardless of this, today’s reflection wants us to focus on “why” Mary is important. No matter what we think of her she is always standing beside us.
She loves us like any Mother would love a child, cries for us when we are in sorrow and prays for us when no one else will and she does all this without praise and recognition. All she wants is for us to find peace, joy, contentment and love through our Triune God dwelling within our hearts.
So whatever you think of her, think at least about how much she loves you and what she is doing for you. A love unrequited is painful and sad and if you felt her pain perhaps you would turn to her too.
