A beautiful, young married couple with three children rejoice in God's plan for the family.What exactly is true marriage? Ask this question today, and you’ll most likely get a variety of answers. Most people will probably say that marriage is a civil contract. This contract establishes a partnership between two people, usually involving the right to mutual sexual relations and the procreating and raising of children. It is presumed that the marriage will bring a significant measure of happiness.

The Holy Family is made up of three people: Jesus Christ, Blessed Virgin Mary, and Saint Joseph.But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah, who are one of the little clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to rule in Israel,  whose origin is from of old, from ancient days. Therefore, he shall give them up until the time when she who is to give birth has borne; then the remnant of his kindred shall return to the house of Israel.

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God — what is good and acceptable and perfect.

From Sacred Scripture, God has nine different types of angels working for Him.King David: I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; in the presence of angels, I sing your praise; I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything.

This image honors the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Queen of Heaven from the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12.Venerable Pope Pius XII established this feast in 1954. But Mary’s queenship has roots in Scripture. At the Annunciation, Gabriel announced that Mary’s Son would receive the throne of David and rule forever (Luke 1:26-38). At the Visitation, Elizabeth calls Mary “mother of my Lord” (Luke 1:39-56). As in all the mysteries of Mary’s life, she is closely associated with Jesus: Her queenship is a share in Jesus’ kingship.

This beautiful stained glass image of the Virgin Mary was created by Ukrainian artist Petro Kholodny in 1924.On Tuesday, August 15, Catholics and many other Christians celebrate the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This significant feast day recalls the spiritual and physical departure of the mother of Jesus Christ from the earth, when both her soul and her body were taken into the presence of God. Venerable Pope Pius XII confirmed this belief about the Virgin Mary as the perennial teaching of the Church when he defined it formally as a dogma of Catholic faith in 1950, invoking papal infallibility to proclaim:

The four Gospels in the New Testament were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.Gospel of Matthew 17: Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.

The artwork of God the Father is an original illustration by artist Jason Koltuniak for a scriptural counting book for children, Counting on Faith.12 No one can question what you have done or challenge your judgment. 13 All things are under your care, and there is no other god to whom you must justify your decisions. 14 No king or ruler on earth can accuse you of punishing those people unfairly. 15 You are righteous, and you rule everything righteously.
