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.

Be Vigilant.......

"Every member of the Church must be vigilant in seeing that the sacrament of love shall be at the center of the life of the people of God so that through all the manifestations of worship due him shall be given back `love for love' and truly become the life of our souls."~~Blessed Pope John Paul II

Thank you AGAIN to my facebook friend Kelly Thatcher!  By the way, she is a great source of inspiration for my blog posts.  She is a pure facebook friend, otherwise I don't know her, never met her, but I very much view her as a beautiful friend in Christ who happens to be from Boston....very cool!!

Pope John Paul II on "Love"

"To imitate and live out the love of Christ is not possible for man by his own strength alone. He becomes capable of this Love only by virtue of a gift received.

As the Lord Jesus receives the love of his Father, so he in turn freely communicates that love to his disciples:

'As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Live on in my Love.' (John 15:9)"

— Pope John Paul II on "Love"
Veritatis Splendor, 1993
Thanks for the Quote Pope Francis!

How to Understand the Mystery of Love

"The mystery of the Cross, a mystery of love, can only be understood in prayer. Pray and weep, kneeling before the Cross." — Pope Francis
