Saints

“The aim of all those who live in God is to please our Lord Jesus Christ and become reconciled with God the Father through receiving the Holy Spirit, thus securing their salvation, for in this consists the salvation of every soul. If this aim and this activity is lacking, all other labour is useless and all other striving is in vain. Every path of life which does not lead to this is without profit.”

“Never let evil talk pass your lips; say only the good things men need to hear, things that will really help them. Do nothing that will sadden the Holy Spirit with who you were sealed against the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, all passion and anger, harsh words, slander, and malice of every kind. In place of these, be kind to one another, compassionate, and mutually forgiving, just as God has forgiven you in Christ.” ~St. Paul, Letter to the Ephesians, 4:29-32

Have you heard of the Abiding Together podcast? I hadn’t, and my sister recommended it to me! I’m listening to the first in a five-part series on women Doctors of the Church. There are a LOT of podcasts on the website, if you’re looking for something really edifying/uplifting to listen to. #score #grateful

I’m always happy to take and pass on recommendations of holy, inspiring, uplifting, or spiritually nourishing media productions. Contact me through the blog, or on the Celestial Musings FB page, on Twitter at @HolyWannabe or through email at celestialmusings@comcast.net . God love you!
