There are countless frustrations in life. Surely, you’ve known your fair share of them. Why do persons and situations frustrate us? Are there some that get under your skin more than others? Frustrations are a great opportunity for us to grow in patience and virtue. Let’s talk about this on Tuesday.
It can happen anytime, anywhere, and in just about any circumstance of our lives. It’s called conflict. It’s usually a serious disagreement or argument, often a protracted one. You experience a clash of interests with another person or a group of people. Conflict can be personal, racial, class-based, political, religious – you name it. Some live for conflict. It seems to fuel who they are. Others avoid it at all cost, and for a variety of reasons. And, to be sure, there are many who fall between the two extremes. What about you? Call on Monday and share with Jerry and Debbie if you’re someone who seeks to do just about anything to avoid conflict and keep the peace. This will be another impactful conversation led by…you!
Life can be really tough sometimes. You get a few steps ahead, only to be pushed back by some hardship or misfortune. Life can even be quite cruel it seems. Yet, it has often been said that adversity builds character. Perseverance, resilience, etc. Share with us how you overcame adversity and you will be helping other souls in the process. (1-833-288-3986) A great big thanks goes to Carole, a loyal listener and Take 2 family member, for suggesting that we revisit this very important topic again.
It is a miracle we are here. Life is precious and should be celebrated. Share with us how you celebrate your special day. Maybe you party for a week or possibly a month. You may even bring out the baby videos and pictures that can remind everyone that you have arrived here on this earth. This is your chance to share with the world what you do to recognize the miracle of life. The miracle of your birth! 1-833-288-3986.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been eighteen years since the infamous 9/11 attacks on the United States. Virtually an entire generation is alive today who were not living at the time. Through memorials and other means, the memories of that fateful day have been kept alive all these years. On Wednesday, join Jerry and Debbie for a look back at where you were when these horrific events unfolded. Were you personally impacted by the loss of a loved one? Is the tragedy still vivid for you? Do you believe something like that could happen again? Let’s pray that it never does. And let’s have a heartfelt conversation about this on Wednesday.
The Anima Christi is a prayer from around the 14th century. It is still widely used after receiving the body and blood of Our Lord,
Jesus Christ in Holy Communion.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.
Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak
and I need Your strength,
that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life,
and without You, I am without fervor.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light,
and without You, I am in darkness.
Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice
and follow You.
Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You
very much, and always be in Your company.
Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.
Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is,
I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of love.
Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and
the day is coming to a close, and life passes;
death, judgment, eternity approaches. It is necessary to renew my strength,
so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You.
It is getting late and death approaches,
I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows.
O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile!
Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all it’s dangers. I need You.
Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of the bread,
so that the Eucharistic Communion
be the Light which disperses the darkness,
the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart.
Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You,
if not by communion, at least by grace and love.
Stay with me, Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation,
because I do not merit it,
but the gift of Your Presence, oh yes, I ask this of You!
Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.
With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth
and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity. Amen
