Joy Battista

"Joy Battista" stands for the Joy of John the Baptist at the presence of Christ.

"And how have I deserved that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, the moment that the sound of thy greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leapt for joy." Luke 1:43-44

This blog is dedicated to all who seek the Joy of Christ's presence in their own lives.
This blog is also dedicated to the unborn, for John the Baptist was an unborn when he leapt for joy at the presence of Jesus who was also unborn at the time.

Battle Ready-Via Radix

Sharing From: Radix-  For Memorial Day and Everyday!
via Battle Ready:
The greatest battles we fight will always be those within our own souls. There are times when the weight of day to day struggles feels crushing and the strength to fight just doesn't seem to be there. 

The following is advice and encouragement from a brother of ours several hundred years ago. He understood the fight and what it meant to be BATTLE READY. 

'Fight, therefore, with great determination. Do not let the weakness of your nature be an excuse. If your strength fails you, ask more from God. He will not refuse your request. Consider this---if the fury of your enemies is great, and their numbers overwhelming, the love which God holds for you is infinitely greater. The Angel who protects you and the Saints who intercede for you are more numerous.' -Fr. Lorenzo Scupoli - The Spiritual Combat - 16th century
