This was what my evening looked like! Got my journal, my blessed crucifix, my Gospel, rosary and the Consecration to our Heavenly Mother at hand.
As important as starting my day with prayer and silent meditation, I treasure my evenings with God just as much.  In prayer I wrap up the day, think something that caught my attention through and nourish my starving soul more and more.
It’s precious to start the day with peace and it’s as important to leave the laptop behind, the phone aside, and just lay there with your God and His and Our Mom who love us so much!  Only His love will heal your wounds and give you the peace we are all after. Don’t be fooled!
“Dear children! You see, hear and feel that in the hearts of many people there is no God. They do not want Him, because they are far from prayer and do not have peace. You, little children, pray - live God’s commandments. You be prayer, you who from the very beginning said ‘yes’ to my call.
Witness God and my presence and do not forget, little children: I am with you and I love you. From day to day I present you all to my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady, February 25, 2014 Message to Marija #medjugorje

"The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin… If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors."— Pope Pius XI

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

I remember sitting in a 10th grade classroom while the IB advisers at my school assured us that going off of 6 hours sleep at night would be well worth it.

I am here to tell you, all my teenage tumblr followers: it’s not worth it. 

So, my counter-assurance is this: do not listen to people who make their careers off of pushing kids into this type of mess.  Do not listen to principals who are trying to ride your hard work to an assistant superintendent position.  Cast a jaded eye towards those teachers who teach AP/IB kids because they feel too good for honors/regular classes and as such turn that classroom into a college class that they will never actually teach.

Do what’s best for you.  Do what’s best to get you to where you want to be.  If it’s IB, great.  If it’s AP, great.  If it’s Dual Enrollment, great.  If it’s honors or regular classes, great. 

Just don’t buy into the lie that you will fail at life unless you get 5’s on all your AP exams.

"We can forget that prayer is not about doing something, but rather about being with Someone. Prayer is an encounter. Mother Teresa would tell her novices that when they entered the chapel, they should say to Jesus: “Here I am, Lord. Love me.” Prayer is not rattling off words, nor a simple psychological activity, nor punching the clock, nor magic, nor ritual words and postures. It is not a monologue where we speak at God, but a dialogue where we converse with Him who is closer to us than we are to ourselves. Prayer is about falling head-over-heels in love with the God who is head-over-heels in love with us."

Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation!
The short invocation prayer Sweet Heart of Mary is meant to be recited frequently throughout the day.

MAY is the month of Mary. Let us make an honest effort to offer her our holy rosary daily!

"Mother, now I’ll say my beads,
For my soul some comfort needs;
And what better can there be
Than to raise my thought to thee,
Sweet Mother!"

Before the Rosary

Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world" (Our Lady of Fátima
