The best thing that we could possibly ask of the Lord for ourselves is that we all be faithful! “Be thou faithful unto death,” He says, “and I will give you a crown of life!” (Rev.2:10).
If you think about trying to be faithful the rest of your life, that just scares you, that worries you! That’s just too big, you’ll never make it!–But what about today? You may have had your little trials and testings, you may have gotten discouraged, you may have made mistakes. But have you still got your faith today? Then you’re full of faith! You’ve been faithful today!
You can only live one day at a time! You can only be faithful one day at a time! So don’t worry about when you weren’t faithful yesterday or whether you’re going to be faithful tomorrow, but do your best to be faithful today. Just be faithful one day at a time. You don’t even have to have faith for a whole day. The only faith you need is what you have got right now! Just have faith for this moment, right now, one moment at a time.
Just be faithful every day, one day at a time, and you will inherit an eternal crown of life!
Breitbart — German supermarket giant Lidl has been caught doctoring images of churches to remove their crosses for the second time. The Soviet-style alterations were made to photographs of the picturesque Church of Sant’Antonio Abate in the village of Dolceacqua, Italy, The Telegraph reports.
The newspaper indicates that the image used for promotional purposes in nearby Camporosso was altered “so as not to offend the sensibility of the town’s Muslim immigrants”.
“You need to show photos of Dolceacqua which correspond to reality. If you don’t want to show crosses, then use an image of our castle,” complained town mayor Fulvio Gazzola, who has vowed to take legal action against the company.

Father Atallah Hanna, Archbishop of the Palestinian Orthodox Church in Occupied Jerusalem, was exposed last Tuesday evening to a spitting and verbal attack by Jewish students in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem. A statement has been released on his official Facebook page deploring the assault and settlers’ ongoing offensive and aggressive practices against the Christian clergy in Jerusalem.
Father Hanna was assaulted after he left the Church of the Flagellation in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City on his way to the Patriarchate, according to the statement. He was spit on and verbally attacked by male and female students of a Jewish religious school in the Old City.
“They were more than 20 people, and they started spitting first and then cursing. They shouted vulgar remarks at the Reverend Archbishop and insulted the Holy Cross and the Christian faith,” the statement said.
“Some Palestinian young men in the area provided protection for the Archbishop and prevented the fanatics from physically assaulting him,” the statement added.
For his part, Father Hanna on Wednesday denounced what had happened with him in the Old City, stressing that “no power in the world can uproot the Palestinians from their holy land.”
“Such blind extremism and hatred will only increase our ties with our holy city, which is our spiritual and national capital and an incubator for our most important holy sites,” he said.
