How Attending The Holy Mass Prevented A Young Man From Dying

How Attending The Holy Mass Prevented A Young Man From Dying

Divine Providence never fails

ST. ELIZABETH was daughter of Peter III. king of Arragon, and granddaughter of James I, who had been educated under the care of St. Peter Nolasco, and was surnamed the Saint, and from the taking of Majorca and Valentia, Expugnator or the Conqueror. 

The queen (St. Elizabeth), had a very pious, faithful page, whom she employed in the distribution of her secret alms. A wicked fellow-page envying him on account of this favour, to which his virtue and services entitled him, treacherously suggested to his majesty that the queen showed a fondness for that page. 

The prince, who by his own sensual heart was easily inclined to judge ill of others, gave credit to the slanderer, and resolved to take away the life of the innocent youth. For this purpose he gave order to a lime-burner, that if on such a day he sent to him a page with this errand to inquire, “Whether he had fulfilled the king’s commands?” he should take him and cast him into the lime-kiln, there to be burnt; for that death he had justly incurred, and the execution was expedient for the king’s service. 

On the day appointed, he despatched the page with this message to the lime-kiln; but the devout youth on the road passing by a church, heard the bell ring at the elevation at mass, went in and prayed there devoutly; for it was his pious custom, if ever he heard the sign given by the bell for the elevation, always to go thither, and not depart till mass was ended. It happened, on that occasion, that as the first was not a whole mass, and it was with him a constant rule to hear mass every day, he stayed in the church, and heard successively two other masses. In the meantime, the king, who was impatient to know if his orders had been executed, sent the informer to the lime-kiln, to inquire whether his commands had been obeyed; but as soon as he had come to the kiln, and had asked the question, the man supposing him to be the messenger meant by the king’s order, seized him, and threw him into the burning lime, where he was soon consumed. Thus was the innocent protected by his devotion, and the slanderer was overtaken by divine justice. 

The page who had heard the masses went afterwards to the lime-kiln, and having asked whether his majesty’s commands had been yet executed, brought him word back that they were. The king was almost out of himself with surprise when he saw him come back with this message, and being soon informed of the particulars, he easily discovered the innocence of the pious youth, adored the divine judgments, and ever after respected the great virtue and sanctity of his queen.

How To Improve Your Life – Randolph Frederick 

How To Improve Your Life – Randolph Frederick 

Professor Randolph Frederick Pausch

This is amazing, 
Randolph Frederick Pausch was an American professor of computer science, human – computer interaction, and design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

He died of pancreatic cancer in 2008 at a young age of 47.  His last book was titled “The last lecture”, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind.

In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful “guide to a better life” for his wife and children to follow.

May you be blessed by his insight.


1. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

2. Don’t have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

3. Don’t over do; keep your limits.

4. Don’t take yourself so seriously; no one else does.

5. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.

6. Dream more while you are awake.

7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..

8. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.

9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.

10. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

13. Smile and laugh more.

14. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

15. Call your family often.

16. Each day give something good to others.

17. Forgive everyone for everything.

18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.

19. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

20. What other people think of you is none of your business.

21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.

23. GOD heals everything.

24. Do the right things.

25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

27. The best is yet to come.

28. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.

30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy. 

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with, people you play with, people you work with and people you live with. Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.

10 Polite Ways To Communicate With Your Spouse 

10 Polite Ways To Communicate With Your Spouse 

A lot of times, couples get pissed off with each other by the way they respond to spoken words. We can do better if we learn response in the *affirmative* and not in the *combative*. Read the following:
1. *Statement:* I’m really hungry.

– *Wrong response:* Even I myself have not eaten since morning.

– *Right response:* Oh sorry, let’s see if there’s something you can manage for now.
 2. *Statement:* Why don’t you try this option?

– *Wrong response:* Why is it that you always find fault with what I do?

– *Right response:* Well, I’ve tried this before and I think it will work. If not, I’ll try that.
3. *Statement:* I want more food.

– *Wrong response:* Ha-ha, rice has finished, Spaghetti has finished, and ingredients are almost finished, and there’s no sign of salary yet.

– *Right response:* Sorry, please manage that for now; I’ll find some snacks for you later.
4. *Statement:* I can’t finish this food.

– *Wrong response:* Ha-ha, things are expensive o; and you can’t be wasting food like this. You will eat it tomorrow!

– *Right response:* Should I keep the rest for you, or give it out?
5. *Statement:* I got wounded in kitchen.

– *Wrong response:* I’ve told you to always be careful with the knife.

– *Right response:* Oh sorry, let me have a look. You need to be more careful next time.
6. *Statement:* Are you okay; is anything the matter with you?

– *Wrong response:* Can’t you see yourself; what kind of question is that?

– *Right response:* I’m not feeling fine; I think I need some attention.
7. *Statement:* I’ll like to eat corn flakes.

– *Wrong response:* No way! It’s for the children; and that’s for one month! Eat biscuits if you are hungry.

– *Right response:* Okay, you can eat a little. I trust you’ll give us money to stock another.
8. *Statement:* Haven’t you finished what you are doing?

– *Wrong response:* You are seated there doing nothing and you are asking if I’ve not finished!

– *Right response:* It will still take a while; can you please lend me a hand?
9. *Statement:* I bought this on my way; I thought it will be useful.

– *Wrong response:* How much did you buy it? What! That’s too expensive – you waste money unnecessarily! 

– *Right response:* Thank you; it will indeed be useful. Thanks for the surprise.
10. *Statement:* Handle that thing carefully please.

– *Wrong response:* Am I that daft? You will just be instructing me as if I don’t have any sense, or I’m stupid! 

– *Right response:* Yes dear, I will.
*_A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
*Please send to your spouse and other couples, not for the purpose of condemnation, but for continuous improvement of your/their love relationship*
