274- Self-conscious


Vlog 274 – Self-conscious

 Hello my friend, I’m Victoria Bellido Durán, member of the Musical Group Flos Mariae, and today I want to give you my opinion about the subject that I entitled: “Self-conscious”.

My friend, I don’t know if you too, but throughout my life, I have known many catholics, who, even though they are baptized, have made their First Communion, have even received confirmation, they are self-conscious catholics: christians who fall between two stools, being “modern Catholics”, who, in practice, hide and forget their faith, in order to do the same as those who are not catholics. How sad that those who can have happiness here on earth and then in the Celestial Kingdom, those who can receive the forgiveness of their sins in the confessional, those who can have God within them for Holy Communion, go begging to the world, and turning their backs on God. Unfortunately they do not know or love their faith, they do not know or love God, they do not live the Gospel, they live submerged in worldliness.

My friend, be an example, be a light! When people look at you, they will see Christ in you; yes, Christ, who did everything well, obeying God the Father in everything, and allowing himself to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Don’t be self-conscious, no! You are heir to the Heavenly Kingdom; do not change your wonderful and priceless inheritance in order to make yourself a place and name in this world, where you will only inhabit a handful of years. And let us pray, let us pray a lot for Catholics who are self-conscious about their faith, let us pray that they change and be examples of holiness.

My friend, thank you.

And always go ahead with faith.
