    That is a good question Poche.  I have been visiting here to understand the movement more and I would love to hear.  
    I am not alone, for the father is with me.

  • I try to bring Christ into the world mainly within my family.  I support my husband in his interactions with the world and as leader of our family.  I teach my children and try to set a good example for them.  I also help with my grandchildren.

    Not enough, if I'm honest with myself.

    I try to live a life that is upright, and to speak of the veracity and necessity of the Catholic faith wherever possible.

  • Yesterday, I taught the children of my catachism class how to pray the rosary. I hope they put what they learned into practice.

    And when ye pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, that love to stand and pray in the synagogues and corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men: Amen I say to you, they have received their reward.

    A good start.

    Now, begin or end each catechism class with a decade of the Holy Rosary.  Lead them, and by doing this, you can inculcate the good practice of regularly saying the Holy Rosary.

    We are ordered to perform works of mercy. "Bring Christ into the world" sounds evangelical protestant to me as far as it applying to people who are not priests, brothers or sisters. Someone  please correct me if I'm wrong here.

    Just make sure you slow down.   :laugh1:  What is with cradle Catholics and their prayer speeds?  

    There are many crafts about the Rosary too that might help  reinforce what you are teaching.

    As an example I read and contemplate the Eleison Comments, and post or read it to people whenever possible. Like this :

    Eleison Comments XXXIV, 23 February 2008

    True Anti-Semitism

    Most people seeing how Pope Benedict XVI has changed the Church’s Good Friday prayer for the Jews will think he has been their friend, because the change was in a direction demanded by spokesmen of theirs, who made themselves heard. However, for any Catholic who has the Catholic Faith, Benedict XVI has been in this not their friend but their enemy.

    The difference is quite simply the difference between our brief life here below, and life everlasting: For purposes of this life, lasting for each of us, let us say, 70 years, he has been their friend, because by, for instance, taking out of the 1962 text the references to the Jews’ “blindness”, “darkness” and “the veil over their hearts”, he has softened the Church’s solemn criticism of their condition. On the other hand by the same softening he will also have diminished Catholics’ awareness of how especially Jews need the charity of Catholics’ prayers.

    For indeed from Adam to world’s end, faith in the one and only Redeemer, to come or having come, can alone save any soul from eternal damnation, unless that soul lives without serious sin and is honestly ignorant of the Redeemer. But honest ignorance presents a particular difficulty for the Jews who had all the privileges of the Old Testament to prepare them for the coming of their Messiah, Jesus Christ, and who ever since have had to put “the veil over their hearts” in order not to recognize him in the multiple prophecies of their Old Testament, notably Isaiah LIII.

    Therefore the recent Good Friday liturgy change, by diminishing Catholics’ awareness of that real “veil”, etc, has done a disservice to Jews’ eternal salvation. In this respect of the Catholic Faith, Benedict XVI has, objectively, shown himself to be against the Jews purely as Jews. Is there any other possible true definition of the expression “anti-semite”?

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, between now and world’s end, grant to your Church many martyrs to die for the eternal salvation of your racial kinsmen, beloved by you! Kyrie eleison.

    False Anti-Semitism

    When “Eleison Comments” last week argued that insofar as Pope Bnedict XVI's Good Friday prayer change worked against the eternal salvation of Jews, he had proved himself -- no doubt unintentionally -- to be a true anti-semite, ie enemy of Jews purely as Jews, a number of readers apparently agreed. I congratulate them, because they had to be thinking with their Catholic minds instead of merely emoting with their (objectively) vile media. Let us think a little further.

    Obviously, the basic principles apply to all men and not just to Jews: to wish them eternal salvation is to love them truly, because it is to wish them the greatest good of all, namely everlasting happiness in Heaven, through and with Our Lord Jesus Christ. To wish them welfare or prosperity merely in this little life on earth is to love them much less, especially if that worldly success would get in the way of their eternal salvation, as it all too easily can do -- Mt.XIX, 24.

    But fewer and fewer people today believe in life everlasting, or in Our Lord, so naturally the perspective of such people is different. If I urge upon them eternal life, or if I do what I prudently can to obstruct their campaigning against Our Lord, then I will seem to them to be their enemy when I am in fact their best friend. It is all a question of perspective, but it is not a question of opinion: the eternal perspective is true, while the anti-Christian perspective is objectively and absolutely false.

    Now ever since the Jews were responsible for the crucifying of Our Lord Jesus Christ -- “His blood be upon us and upon our children”, Mt.XXVII,25 -- they have as a race and as a religion, always with noble exceptions, continued to reject him down to our day. Thus St. Paul observed that they not only “killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets”, but they also prohibited St. Paul himself from “speaking to the Gentiles so as to save them”. In brief, their behavior was such that “they please not God and are adversaries to men” (I Thess. II,14-16). Closer to our own time, it is a matter of historical record that the designing and launching of, for instance, Communism, to wrest mankind away from God and to replace his Heaven with a man-made paradise, was largely their achievement.

    So they persecuted St. Paul at every turn (see Acts of the Apostles) as being one of their arch-enemies, when in fact nobody loved them more truly or labored more for their real well-being than did St. Paul (cf. Rom. IX,1-5). Similarly today, they will call an “anti-semite” anybody who gets in the way of any godlessness of theirs, when in fact all people laboring for their salvation, as for the salvation of Gentiles, are their best friends. St Paul, pray for us! Kyrie eleison.

    well, depends, but would be my guess they see a fractured and  :fryingpan: :argue: people, enamored really with the world, a few anti-women zealots and Neo-Nazis. The outside would see people that seem to exist to argue, complain, attack and crab. Scratch the surface of a Trad, you find a puritan was a good quote heard not long ago......
    You would find people here that pervert the good, Catholic understanding of race, ethnicityand nationalism, perverting it into some sort of worlding, unChristian thought and always hiding under a thin veil. They would see here at CI that we cannot seem to discuss and even, disagree w/each other w/o the recriminations, attacks and accusations of heresy.

    Notice the temperate posters like Stevus, Vlad,etc are not here much....or that GV left for a long time and even now, not here as much......or that I left, came back and now 2 months later, am getting the same  :really-mad2: negativity that some here seem to live with? regeretting my return more and more......certain people here, far from striving to live a Catholic life are in fact, a mess and like it that way, deep down. They thrive in dissension and chaos and bring other people down to their level. They are not Trads, but use it to try to find stabilization for their hectic lives, then hate it for what is required of them..

    Watch, you will see them for what they really are in their responses to my post-watch their words, language, implicaitons,etc.....Marcelino the other day sent me a PM, contents are between he and I, but he noted something was off with me-noted besides fighting a virus and feeling lousy, that this forum was brining me down.

    So, though I could go on and on, one would get out of this forum a sense of faulty people struggling to learn,live the faith, but people that are soo :fryingpan: :argue: :dwarf: that most would not want to be a part of that negativity, if this is true Catholicism, THEY WOULD SAY, then no thanks.........one has to balance the role of fighter/defender, with meekness and modesty.......St. Paul had some words on that about a clanging cymbal, and he was not wimpy...

    Telesphorus,
     are you saying teaching kids to pray the rosary is bad? Or are you saying it is bad to share that happiness here --WITH CATHOLICS?? What does this mean--I may be misundarstanding but it sounds snarky to me.  God Bless all the catechism teachers who share the joy of our Blessed Mother with children.
    I am not alone, for the father is with me.
