No human tongue can enumerate the favors that trace back to the Sacrifice of the Mass. The sinner is reconciled with God; the just man becomes more upright; sins are wiped away; vices are uprooted; virtue and merit increases; and the devil’s schemes are frustrated...

⚜️The Gallery of Old Masrets. European and Old Polish Decorative Arts, Painting and Sculpture 15th-18th Century. The former galleries, the Gallery of Decorative Arts and the Gallery of European and Polish Old Masters , at the National Museum In Warsaw have been merged to form the new Gallery of Old Masters. The Gallery space is divided into three areas: “Culture of the court”, “Religion and devotion in church and at home” and “The City”. The first area consists of paintings, sculptures, furniture, tapestries, textiles, carpets, goldsmith objects, silverware, glassware, majolica, earthenware and porcelain, which were all sings of luxury and splendor, instruments of moral instructions, vehicles of political propaganda, or simple means of entertainment. The area “Religion and devotion in church and at home” presents elements from settings of liturgy in churches and places of religious worship, as well as instruments for private devotion, prayer and contemplation at home or in private chapels. The third area of the Gallery, situated in a separate museum wing is “The city”. It demonstrates, how decorative arts, painting and sculpture contributed to the formation of upper-class sculptures in cities. The narration concludes with an exceptional city, “a city for export”: Venice. The exhibition is complemented with treasures of artisanal handicraft presented in three cabinets: porcelain, glass and crystal wares and goldsmith objects.⚜️ #gallery#arts#masters#museum#warsaw#poland#areas#culture#religion#devotion#city#paintings#sculptures#furniture#textiles#carpets#silverware#glassware#porcelain#luxury#instruments#decorative#cultures#venice#handicraft#crystal#objects#like4like#follow4follow
So I go with my husband to have lunch in an iranian restaurant and after we ate we ordered tea and my husband went to the mens room. Right when he left my daughter woke up and she started crying because she wanted my husband. Oh the joy of parenting... meanwhile this man walks in that I'm guessing was iranian too as he was talking to the waitress in the same language and he sat at the table next to ours. 2 minutes later other 2 men with about 4,5 women walk in and they seemed to be with the first man that walked in. I understood they wanted to put the two tables together but we haven't finished our tea and plus there were other 6 big tables they could of sat at but instead guess what? They chose to take chairs and sit around my table like lions watching me struggle to make my toddler stop crying and end her tantrum. At the same time the waitress comes over and gives her some biscuits that she couldn't have because she has allergies but didn't even ask. So imagine me trying to make her calm down, while taking the biscuit out of her hand scared she can have an allergic reaction, trying to put some cartoons for her and all this while having about 8 people around me staring at me and trying to make me leave from my table. I stood up and went outside and the waitress came after me to tell me that every time they come they HAVE to sit at that table. Imagine... they HAVE to. I'll tell you what. If that would be my restaurant or if I would be the waitress, I would say you either wait, or you sit somewhere else or you leave. Even if that would make me lose my job. •
This may need some explaining. Just from my everyday experience, I noticed that Sunday's would bring out the worst in some people. Living near a church, I used to hear near accidents, from people getting out of service and blindly entering an intersection without caution. I'd like to think that church goers are bad drivers, or idiots, but I couldn't assign that label to them, because this would have to be an everyday event, since they're everywhere.
Working at a grocery store, I started noticing a trend. Everyday, multiple times a day, I would fill our banana display, and remove the bananas that were no longer sellable. These bananas weren't particularly bad, but they would reach a level of ripeness that we were required to move them off the display. I have been lazy sometimes and left the ultra ripe bananas out longer than I should've, and still, they would not sell. Sometimes as I'm pulling these bananas off the display, a few people would as if we would mark them down, because they were still good, and customers could still use them for banana bread. However, on Sunday's, I started noticing a trend. People would often guilt me about removing bananas. They'd mention that there are poor people starving in other countries, and we're throwing away perfectly good fruit. Now, although their statement about poor people is true, it's only brought to my attention on Sunday's. My response to them is that they should contract our corporate office and voice their concerns. I'd also suggest that the customers buy the ultra ripe fruit, and give it to these needy people. With both suggestions, the customer usually backs away or turns down the offer to be an example in affecting change.
I believe that both of these situations comes from, what I call, a false sense of righteousness. I believe these people spend 2 hours or so, at church, and, upon exiting, feel like their sins have been removed, that they've done a great thing, and that God won't allow any negativity befall them, within 5 hours of service. This is wrong.

Syaikh Muhammad bin Shalih Al-Utsaimin pernah ditanya tentang hujjahnya orang yang melakukan maksiat “apabila dilarang berbuat maksiat bukankah Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang...?"karena sesungguhnya Allah berfirman : “Sesungguhnya Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang”. Jawaban
Apabila ia berhujjah dengan ayat tadi, maka hujjah kita adalah dengan firman Allah Ta’ala : "Artinya : Beritahukan kepada hamba-hambaKu bahwa Aku Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang. Dan bahwa siksaKu adalah siksa yang pedih” [Al-Hijr : 49-50]
Dan dengan firmanNya
“Artinya : Ketahuilah bahwa Allah amat keras siksanya. Dan bahwa Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang” [Al-Ma’idah : 98]. Jadi apabila didatangkan ayat-ayat yang mengandung pengharapan, datangkan saja ayat-ayat yang mengandung ancaman.
Jawaban seperti itu sebenarnya bukan jawaban dari dia, melainkan jawaban orang-orang yang menganggap remeh/ringan. Maka kiapun mengatakan kepadanya ; Bertakwalah kamu kepada Allah dan laksanakanlah apa-apa yang diwajibkan Allah kepadamu serta mintalah ampun kepadaNya, karena tidak setiap orang yang menunaikan sesuatu yang diwajibkan Allah dapat melakukannya dengan sempurna.

The Monastery of Venerable Prohor of Pčinja is located at the slopes of Mount Kozjak, near the village of Klenika, South Serbia. It is the second largest Serbian Orthodox monastery complex after Hilandar. A major renovation of the monastery, originally built by the Byzantine emperor Romanus IV in 1067–1071 in honor of Saint Prohor of Pčinja, whose relics are kept in the monastery, has been undertaken in the early 14th century during the reign of Serbian King Milutin. The monastery was destroyed by the Turks after the Battle of Kosovo in 1389, but it was later rebuilt and new frescoes were painted on its walls. The imposing multi-domed church now standing within the monastery complex was built in 1898.
Манастир Светог Прохора Пчињског налази се на обронцима планине Козјак, у близини села Кленика, на југу Србије. Други је највећи српски православни манастирски комплекс после Хиландара. Најзначајнија обнова манастира, првобитно изграђеног 1067-1071. године од стране византијског цара Романа IV у част Светог Прохора Пчињског, чије мошти се налазе у манастиру, спроведена је почетком 14. века за време владавине краља Милутина. Манастир је, међутим, уништен од Турака после Косовске битке 1389. године, али је касније обновљен и нови слој фресака је насликан. Монументална вишекуполна црква која се данас налази у склопу комплекса саграђена је 1898. године, а у олтарском простору налази се гробница Св. Прохора Пчињског.

When you place your trust & faith in Jesus, you can not only live in peace but also rest in peace, both in this life & the next!
In John 14:27, Jesus says: "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful."
When someone dies, many are quick to say "rest in peace" but on what basis do they say this? What peace are they referring to? Who is this peace from? Is "rest in peace" merely an expression without substance?
No one can rest in peace if they didn't have peace to begin with when they were alive and this peace is ONLY found in Jesus!
Next time you decide to share a RIP message, ask yourself: Did this person have peace in Christ when they were alive? If not, is it right to say rest in peace when you know they're not?
La città di Shiva sul sacro fiume Gange. In passato nota con i nomi di Kashi e Benares, per i pellegrini Hindu è il luogo di purificazione e posto ideale dove morire, liberandosi dal ciclo delle rinascite e raggiungendo il parandiso.
The city of Shiva on the holy Ganges River. Formerly known as Kashi and Benares, Hindu pilgrims go in this place of purification and ideal place to die, freeing themselves from the rebirths cycle and reaching heaven.
