Our Catholic Faith Journey is a personal web site that started as a hobby and still is! I have a strong passion for my faith and so believe in sharing it with others. I do believe that God has blessed me with great talents and I need to use my talents to glorify Him.
My aim for this site is to be a place of daily devotion,
articles, prayer requests, a resource for RCIA and Sunday School,
and for the sharing of testimonies. A place where Catholics
and non-Catholics alike can come and learn about scripture.
Our Catholic Faith Journey is not a single church-based website or newsletter. It is my personal ministry to give of my Time, Talent and Treasure to the wider Catholic community, to inform, educate, evangelize and bring glory to God.
|Reader! two or three things in a
way of Providence ought to affect your heart in reading this
Chapter. See how safe their interests are, however long they
may seem to be forgotten, whose concerns are in the divine
hands! And how much therefrom, it ought to be the study of
the faithful to attend to the workings of the LORD in all
events of their life; convinced of this, that they who
humbly watch and trust a merciful GOD, for the fulfillment
of all his covenant promises, will never want a faithful GOD
to watch over and take care of them.
But with those providential views only, let not the Reader close his meditation of this Chapter. A view of grace also is at hand. And if from Joseph’s exaltation to the right hand of Pharaoh, our eyes are directed by the SPIRIT of GOD to the LORD JESUS at the right hand of power, into whose Almighty hands the sovereignty of grace is committed; here we shall see indeed, a true Zaphnath-paaneah: a wonderful counsellor! before whom all nations shall bow, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and whose dominion endureth throughout all ages. Oh! thou great provider for all thy people’s need, incline our hearts by thy grace to come to thee for food. And forasmuch as there is none but thou who hast the words of eternal life, none so discreet and wise as thou art: be thou our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. Thou shalt be our lord and governor, and according unto thy word so let our souls be ruled. Ever would we desire to bow the knee before thee; and may not only ours, but every tongue confess, that thou art JESUS CHRIST the LORD, to the glory of GOD the FATHER.
The Spiritual Works of Mercy have long been a part of the Christian tradition, appearing in the works of theologians and spiritual writers throughout history. Just as Jesus attended to the spiritual well-being of those he ministered to, these Spiritual Works of Mercy guide us to "help our neighbor in their spiritual needs".
The seven Spiritual Works of Mercy are listed below. After each work of mercy there are also suggestions and words of advice for living them out in our daily lives.
Works of mercy can be directed not only toward the
needs of the body, but the needs of the soul as well. Indeed, the most
serious form of poverty of all can be the poverty of the spirit, not
only because it drains life of all energy, joy, and sense of purpose,
but also because it is the one kind of poverty that can last forever.

What is Cursillo?
The first Cursillos developed in the Roman Catholic Church in Mallorca, Spain, in the late 1940s. Under the leadership of their bishop, several laymen began to formulate a way to draw active laymen into the work of "Christianizing" the everyday life settings where they lived.
Eventually, the Cursillo Method found interested parties in the United States. The first Cursillo Three-Day Weekend in the United States was held in Waco, Texas, in 1957. At first, these were still held in the Spanish language, and were available only to Roman Catholics. The first English speaking weekend was in 1961 in San Angelo, Texas. In time a few Episcopalians were invited to participate in the weekends.
