Will I be able (four gifts)

Will I be able

To see Jesus' eyes in my neighbours' eyes
To be prepared for any sacrifice
To think more about my Life still to come 
And not to get bitter if people let me down*

*The old year is coming to its end, the new one is closer to us.
I am not the type of guy who always has got many New Year's resolutions, yet
above you will find a few of them: they are not resolutions actually, but my gifts-to-be for the Baby Jesus. 

Pray that mentioned presents may make Him happy now and always...  

Tomasz, Racibórz

PS.Thank you for your Christmas wishes and for joining the prayer circle. God bless!

The time is come (EN-PL)

May Child Jesus be born in your heart
May the same heart bring Jesus to other
May other be in peace with Him and you.

Blessed Christmas to you all - no matter where are you from.
Thank you for reading, commenting and being here with me!


Niech mały Jezus narodzi się w Twoim sercu

Niech żyją oni w pokoju z Nim i Tobą.

Błogosławionych świąt Bożego Narodzenia dla wszystkich - obojętnie skąd są.
Dziękuję za czytanie, komentowanie i bycie tu ze mną.

Start by doing what is necessary

"Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
St. Francis of Assisi
During (m)any Christmas-- although majority of us are happy, cheerful and smiled--  many people are sad because of their loneliness.  Perhaps this year, meaning of your life is gone along with someone close to you.  I myself have suffered from a loss recently. 
If you are wondering if your life is worth living right now, replace your thoughts with an image of the Holy Family. Among Them there is a solution to any of your problem -- They know exactly what does it mean to be lonely. They went through it too. 
While experiencing pain, try to fight back your gloomy moods with three simple steps:
  • First of all, be persistent in trusting ( as Mary did);
  • Secondly, take every opportunity that is given to you by the Saviour ( God kept Joseph by Mary's side);
  • And be happy with HIM ( at the end God rewarded the trust of the Holy Parents).
With Him impossible is nothing,  so be open to the abundance of possibilities, and remember about the necessity of your holy life - that is the base for your future happiness.

Light of your true Home (They are waiting there for you)

Source: Google search engine
Why are many of us so timid or indifferent when it comes to sharing our faith with the world we live in?  In my opinion committed sins play the greatest part in preventing people from doing their best for Jesus.  But He is the One who came especially to heal sinners. Read the following excerpt from St. Faustina's Diary, any you will understand my point:

Let the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. My daughter, write about My mercy towards tormented souls. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy. Write: before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice... (Diary, 1146).

That is why -- no matter what your past looks like --  trust in Him, and He will do the rest.  Just like well-known father did to the prodigal son of parable. The later, so reluctant in backing home, eventually believed that there is only one Shelter, only one Love and Mercy. So if you are in pain because of your sins right now try to be persistent, even despite experienced difficulties,  in following the Light of your real Home.

The Spirit of Life

Source: Google search engine
This year, as always, the feast of the Nativity of Christ will be preceded by the remembrance of Mary's Immaculate Conception and of Her protection given to unborn children ( not only these of Guadalupe, Mexico). Then all of us will be happy because of the joy of Baby Jesus, sharing our happiness with  His Holy Family. In my opinion presented order of feasts shows us something extremely important: regardless of what our atheistic culture is trying to tell(or rather not to tell) us about the living tradition of our Catholic faith and Christmas,  not only every Advent Season but also each day of the liturgical year should be filled with the Spirit of Life.

It shall be so for God wants for every one of us the everlasting Life, not sweets, electronic equipments or other gifts.
Let's treat each day as the Advent season: that is as a preparation for a real Gift,the gift of participation in Jesus' Life.

Pray for all of the unborn children and for me, please...Thank you in advance!
God bless.

Enjoyment /Mary's Wisdom/ (poem)

Enjoyment /Mary's Wisdom/

Mary, please tell me how to follow your Son
Whenever I doubt, when there's only pain?

There is one thing you can always do
Despite obstacles, act just as He tells you

Throughout your crosses and disappointments
Drink the Wine of obedience and get the Enjoyment.

Tomasz, Racibórz
