Catholic Devotions

 
Catholic Devotions are nothing new.  The sincere piety of devout, religious and spiritual Catholics has manifested itself from the beginning. Many of these devotions have become popular because of the promises which Our Lord or Our Lady have attached to devotions to them, e.g. First Fridays, First Saturdays, devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Holy Rosary, etc.

Such pious, religious and spiritual practices have helped people to focus on living a holy life of virtue and sanctity in imitation of Christ, of Our Blessed Mother, of their patron Saint(s), and to be mindful of how Christ teaches us to be in the world but not of the world.

Many of these Spiritual helps are popular, not only because people can see how they have "worked" for them in their own personal lives, but also because they give those who perform these various devotions a kind of "foretaste", so to speak, of Heaven itself!

The Catholic Church, as a loving, kind, and merciful Mother, has carefully approved of a number of them to help Catholics in this life, and even some in the next life, e.g. that those who die wearing the Brown Scapular will not go to Hell, and who, on the first Saturday after their death, will be taken to Heaven if they have the misfortune to end up in Purgatory.  In this sense certain Catholic Devotions are like Eternal Life Insurance!

HOPE

 
“Rejoicing in Hope.  Patient in tribulation.  Instant in prayer” (Romans 12:12).

“Now the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing; that you may abound in Hope, and in the power of the Holy Ghost”  (Romans 15:13).

“Charity is patient, is kind: Charity...beareth all things, Believeth all things, Hopeth all things, endureth all things” (1 Corinthians 13:4, 7).

“Now Faith is the substance of things to be Hoped for, the evidence of things that appear not” (Hebrews 11:1).
