A wonderful reminder for everyone:
There is never a day in your life that God didn’t love you.
The seven stages of infatuation for the devout Catholic male as experienced by yours truly.
*scans pews before Mass* Oh hey, that girl looks pretty cute
*sits next to her* Wait a minute, is she really wearing..... a mIRACULOUS MEDAL
*hears her sing the Alleluia* Guuurl, you better stop playin' or you're gonna make St. Cecilia hella envious with that voice....
*shakes her hand during the sign of peace* Ugh, I could just hold your hand forever...... IN HEAVEN.
*standing behind her in the communion line* emotional chastity, emotional chastity, emotional - DID YOU REALLY JUST RECEIVE THE HOLY EUCHARIST ON THE TONGUE OH MY GOSH
*the Mass is ended, go in peace* NO. HOW CAN I GO IN PEACE WHEN I DON'T EVEN KNOW THIS GIRL'S NAME
*sees her run off to Adoration after Mass* ....that's it. I am going to marry you and our first daughter shall be named Therese.
Bless us, oh Lord, and these thy gifts, which we have stupidly bolted down without saying grace first and now are hoping you will bless retroactively.
1. God is in full control of the timing and intensity of your trial and will not allow it to go beyond His boundaries.
2. He has a specific purpose for your suffering which you may not understand until it is over.
3. This trial will prove to be profitable if you submit to God and trust Him through it.
4. Trying situations are opportunities for faith to prove genuine and grow stronger.
5. When you endure extreme pressure with unexplainable peace and joy, the Lord will demonstrate His sustaining power to a watching world.
6. Your difficulties are used by the Father to produce Christ-like character.
7. God will walk with you through all trials.
8. The Holy Spirit will enable you not only to survive but also to come out a conqueror.

Stop saying sorry. Say thank you instead. When you say, “sorry for being a jerk” the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasnt a big deal. Instead, say “thank you for being so patient with me” so the other person has a reason to say they love you.
by I saw this gem on Reddit tonight. It was posted under a topic of “What ‘little’ things you can do to improve your relationship with your significant other.” I’m definitely taking this piece of advice with me into my next relationship. (via blakebaggott
