21 Practical New Year Resolutions 

By Salman and Monica

New year is so important to us because it gives a new chance,a clean slate to start over. It feels so good to forget your past and start right this time. Read on

For my Spiritual Welfare:

1.DAILY SCRIPTURE READING 

I’ve learnt that reading the Word of God will get you knowing the heart of God. Holy Spirit uses this to direct you in all your steps. This practice will make all your paths straight and give you success in all you do. The Word of God is filled with powerful promises and a tone of wisdom. Claim those promises today.Believe it, a section of the gospels a day will change your life

2. DAILY MEDITATIVE ROSARY PRAYER

When we were planning for our wedding, we did not have much and being so human as we are, we were filled with doubts and fears. Monica and I decided to take Mother Mary seriously. We saw how effective she was at the Cana wedding when their wine gave out. She prayed for more and Jesus grudgingly supplied plenty,the best wine! For this we also invited her to be the first matron. We dedicated every Saturday rosary for our wedding. God gave us a testimony for His Mother, he gave us success. Pray to Mother and ask for her help this new year.

3.WEEKLY HOLY HOUR

There’s no better moment than to spend time at the feet of Jesus, just listening and contemplating. Eucharistic adoration. Mary of Bethany knew this. Her sister Martha had to learn that service is important but being with the LORD and wasting time with Him is even better. Find time every week to adore Jesus in the Eucharist in any Catholic chapel worldwide

4.CONFESSION AT LEAST EVERY 3 MONTHS 

 Your body is the temple of God. You’re the priest of your temple because you offer prayers and offerings of praise from within yourself. Now confession helps you sweep this home clean every time. Let 3 months not pass by. Why not. Let Holy Spirit delight being your guest because you’re always keeping clean and fresh.

5.PROMOTE UNITY OF CHRISTIANS, ECUMENISM

Our Lord Jesus is the Good Shepherd, our Shepherd and we his flock. He wishes for us all to be one even as he and the Father are one. He does not wish that any be lost that’s why he would even leave the ninety nine somewhere in search for the lost one. Let’s build friendships with other Abramic faiths and may we be ambassadors of Truth but first, stewards of God’s Love. If nothing else you can do, pray

6.PROMOTE GOOD USE OF ALL GIFTS 

God has a plan for your life. You have a purpose. This purpose is in line with your gifts and abilities. They’re never separate from each other. So go forth and be fruitful in all you do, using all the gifts at your disposal

7.MEET SPIRITUAL AND TEMPORAL NEEDS OF OTHERS, WORKS OF MERCY

Look, there’s no such thing as Christianity without Charity. If you’re a Christian then you must be involved in acts of Love for your neighbour. Forgive, feed, comfort,rebuke,be good to everyone as Jesus has been to you.

For My Overall Wellbeing:

 1. Drink more water

 2. Minize junk food and eat healthier,more natural foods

 3. Walk more than drive and keep fit

 4. Smile everyday and give thanks even in rough times

 5. Less time for TV, more with family and friends

 6. Make a new friend, join a new club

 7. Wear the new clothes and use the new cups, don’t keep them

 8. Learn some new skill, seriously, go do it already

 9. Phase out bad music and movies and replace with inspirational stuff, faith based films like WARROOM or The 33 is a good start

10. Don’t save. Invest and grow instead

11. Start a new business, change is good also

12. Quit unhealthy relationships and repair the ones you have to

13. Avoid when possible people who stress you, but pray for them

14. Beat your addiction cold Turkey, and replace the void with Holy Spirit so you don’t fall back

We Love you and wish you a very beautiful and fulfilling new year!

I’m Homosexual and Catholic in Kenya, now what?

I never wanted this for myself, it all began like a fairy tale then it turned real

I was in form three in a boys only boarding school when I started receiving anonymous love notes placed in my locker. The person would tell me how much he loved me and how he was so attracted to me. I was not very social then and I did not have many friends so it was kind of a surprise. Continue reading

There is power in Prayer

 esther-waithira-st-therese-scc-20161007_101058Esther Waithira

“For quite some time I had been waiting for light to shine on me in pursuing a job. A few months ago I approached the rest of BPS family to help me pray in my frustration. Sometimes I thought God had abandoned me. But then he gave me an internship in a certain organization and after the period was over, I applied for a job and came back again to BPS family for prayers. Now I have already received my contract. Indeed there’s power in prayer! Glory to God.” Esther’s contract has since been renewed three times!”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Mt 7:7
