deep thoughts

Thought for the Day & Reminder!

I keep hearing subtle variations on this quote:  "We are spiritual beings having a human experience."  How about this variation:

We are connected beings having a separate experience.

Think about it.

Don't forget our final Fatima Family Holy Hour for World Peace, this Friday!  I will be at the World Apostolate of Fatima in Asbury, NJ, but the show will go on right here on this blog!  Don't miss it!  And please add your voice to our comments-thank you, you will be blessed!  CFM:)  PSSpread the word and think about giving Our Lady a special gift for this momentous occasion!

Thoughts for the Day....

The above sentiment was in a package of eggs I bought, "Nellie's Free Range Eggs."  I thought it was great, so I cut it out and stuck in on my fridge...and today I decided to share it with you!  BTW, you can always use any image or text from this website, as long as you indicate where you got it.  Nomen Christi Apostolate is concerned with emergency preparedness, sustainability and the search for the "Authentic Life."  Chickens do all three!  Think about getting chickens.  I don't have them right now, though my family had them when I was growing up and I became quite adept at catching them when they got loose.  It's wonderful to have beautiful fresh brown eggs whenever you want.  I envision a time when I will have a larger piece of property and some help....for now, I do what I can-that's all any of us can do-start somewhere and make a move toward greater preparedness and a deeper connection with nature!

We are the sum of all our days.

If you are not present to the moment, you miss it.

And that's just sad.

Don't forget....our next Fatima Holy Hour is next Tuesday!  Don't miss it!  Spread the word!  (much thanks)

Thought for the Day....

Life is like a casino.

It's always rigged in favor of the house.

I normally don't like explaining myself too much, because I never want to insult the intelligence of my audience and I also like to get people to think for themselves. What does evil do?  It enslaves, it destroys the self.  Good seeks to empower.  It seeks no power for itself, only to assist others.  I am very much of the mind...."If you wish to feed a man for a day, give him a fish.  If you wish to feed him for a lifetime, teach him how to fish."  However, I'd like to just say a few words about the above sentiment.  There is another saying, which Pope Francis is also acquainted with, which illustrates well, what I mean.  These are his words from a press conference two years ago, “God always forgives, we men forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives.  If you give her a slap, she will give you one."  This has everything to do with the search for the "authentic life."  Okay, I'll leave the rest to you and the Holy Ghost.....
