the first day.
my name is molly.

i am the kind of girl that never does anything without heart. i am indecisive on most things, including which of the four seasons i enjoy the most, and anything that has anything to do with color. i have green eyes that turn blue. i cheer for the underdog. i enjoy infomercials. i hardly ever finish anything that i start. i am looking forward to being alive.
Let us understand that God is a physician, and that suffering is a medicine for salvation; not a punishment for damnation.

All the good that is in me is due to Holy Communion. I owe everything to it. I feel that this holy fire has transformed me completely. Oh, how happy I am to be a dwelling place for You, O Lord! My heart is a temple in which you dwell continually…

"And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven." (Revelation 12:7)

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

St. Gianna Beretta Molla, shown on her wedding day to Pietro Molla, September 24, 1955 
How much have we paid for our redemption? Nothing! It was all free! So do good without expecting something in return. Just as the Father did with us, we have to do the same. Do good and keep going!

If people understood the true purpose of chastity, they would see that it has nothing to do with fear or prudishness. Nor is it a repression of sexual desires. Rather, chastity is an exercise of the will, to choose what is good, the greatest of all that is good. It is a refusal to allow the desire for pleasure to displace the call to love. Pleasure is not a bad thing, but when a person pursues enjoyment at the expense of another, love is abandoned.

I have made you. I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

For some reason, we think our shame too great a burden to carry for Christ, because we have found it too great a burden to carry. But Christ tells us “Why do you carry it? Why do you ask Me to carry it? Have I not taken it when I died for you?” And in that response, we realize that our shame is not anyone’s to carry, for it is meant to be put to death along with our sin. Beloved, you are not this mistake, for you are more than conquerers in Christ; He broke those chains, so why do you hold onto something that cannot hold you? Reach for Christ, those are the arms that can sustain you and renew you, those are the arms that will never reject you.
