Feast of Saint Augustine


I first saw this crucifix in a video to encourage young Catholics about their faith. I looked more information about it then I decided to purchase one for my bedroom. It’s a reminder of the pain Jesus bore and how heavy our sins are.

Also today is Saint Augustines feast day ~ one of the most inspiring saints for me.

Saint Mary Magdalene Feast Day July 22

St. Mary Magdalene
Apostle to the Apostles (First Century)

Mary Magdalene was one of the original Galilean disciples
of Jesus and the most eminent among the many women who
followed in his itinerant ministry. Little can be said about her
origins; she is characterized simply as a “woman from whom
seven demons had gone out.” There is no scriptural basis for
the later tradition that depicted her as a penitent prostitute.
The Gospels name her among the women who followed Jesus
to Golgotha and there witnessed his passion and death. While
all the male disciples fled, it was these women who remained
faithful to the end. It was also they who went to his tomb on
the third day hoping to anoint his body.

Instead they found an empty tomb, guarded by an angel
who revealed the news that Jesus was risen. The women were
charged to tell the disciples to meet the Lord back in Galilee.
In the Gospels of John and Matthew (and the longer ending
of Mark), Mary actually sees the Risen Lord. According to
John, Mary stood weeping outside the tomb when she saw
Jesus, though without recognizing him. When he addresses
her with a single word, “Mary,” she calls out, “Rabboni!
Teacher.” He instructs her to go to the disciples and tell them,
“I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God
and your God.”

It was Mary Magdalene, the faithful disciple, who first pro-
claimed the good news to the Twelve. Thus she has often been
called the “Apostle to the Apostles.” Her feast is on July 22.

“I have seen the Lord.”

—St. Mary Magdalene (John 20:18)

Written in Give Us This Day for Blessed Among Us

Christ Has No Body

Christ has no body now on earth but yours,

no hands but yours,

no feet but yours,

Yours are the eyes through which to look out

Christ’s compassion to the world;

Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good;

Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.

~Saint Teresa of Avila 


I am always amazed by God’s feelings for me. He really loves me even as I make wrong decisions he still loves me then. He is always calling me back and when I finally hear his voice loud and clear my heart really rejoices in him. He is truly a loving father. He makes me feel as I am the only one.


St. Augustine

This quote was taken from the book “The Confessions of Saint Augustine”. When I first read these lines I was delighted to hear the way St. Augustine used imagery to describe how God brings to an end our sins no matter how big they have been if we truly repent for them. It is also comforting to know that such a extraordinary Saint as Saint Augustine was at one point of his life one of us falling over and over again as he once said why do “we keep rolling around in the mud of our sins!”. Many times we become discouraged because we want to be perfect and sin no more but simply we just need to accept that is not possible for us. Only by Gods grace he will give us the all that we need to be better at avoiding sin. With this have been said I will encourage you to go reconcile with God by Returning to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. In it we find God’s unconditional forgiveness; we are called to forgive others. 

Who was St. Augustine?St. Augustine of Hippo is the patron of brewers because of his conversion from a former life of loose living, which included parties, entertainment, and worldly ambitions. His complete turnaround and conversion has been an inspiration to many who struggle with a particular vice or habit they long to break. His story is remarkable if you would like to learn about St. Augustine conversion story check this page out… More on St. Augustine
