Tweets During Sacred Heart of the Trinity LWIL # 22 June 5, 2023

For some reason at the beginning of the month of June at the beginning of the Month of the Sacred Heart, which includes the feast of the Holy Trinity, there were a plethora of interesting and insightful Tweets on Twitter. Normally I don’t put this many Tweets  in a History of the week. But how can you pass on a boatload of good tweets when they sail in your harbor.

Pope Francis@Pontifex (May 31, 2023) Today, at the end of the month of May, moments of prayer are planned in Marian shrines throughout the world for the upcoming Synod of Bishops. Let us ask the Virgin Mary to accompany with her maternal protection this important stage of the Synod.

Besides this Fr. Casey Cole gives us the Catholic teaching on Divorce.
Jimmy Akin celebrates 30 years as an apologist.
I learned about the Zoot Suit Riots.
We have some Marian feast days.
And a new song from Imagine Dragons.
Plus as I said before there is a lot of terrific Tweets.
All this and more…

    Sooo, I made a big mistake…

    Apparently Pride month means something else entirely…

Beginning of The Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Catholic News Agency@cnalive (June 1, 2023) June is known as the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus because the solemnity of the Sacred Heart is celebrated during this month. This year, the solemnity falls on June 16. However, other reasons exist as to why June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart.  

Besides The Sacred Heart of Jesus it is also Pride Month. I let this Tweeter explain in Catholic terms.

Aimee Murphy@RehumanizeAimee (May 30, 2023)

During this LGBTQ+ Pride Month & Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, this queer Catholic is here to remind all y’all that the pierced heart of Jesus beats, pours out, and burns passionately for all lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, intersex, & ace people everywhere.

(May 31, 2023)  I should have expected that a lot of prejudiced bigots and homophobes would show up in my replies, but somehow I had hoped they wouldn’t.

Anyway,, being gay isn’t a sin!
Holy, self-sacrifial queer people exist!!
Stop making assumptions about ppls sex lives, y’all! It’s gross!!

Anyway, all Xians even wanting to comment on this thread should read the following books which I’ve found helpful in my walk & for my family: – Gay & Catholic – Tenderness (this & above by Eve Tushnet) – Heavy Burdens (by B.E. Rivera) – Guiding Families of LGBT Loved Ones

�� you are assuming
That all LGBTQ+ people
Are unrepentant sinners
That’s gross and prejudicial ��
But regardless of a soul’s state
Unrepentant Sinner, holiest Saint,
or somewhere in between,
Jesus’ Sacred Heart still beats
For all of us, queer kids included ��

  • The Many Quotes of the Day

    Father Jim Sichko@JimSichko(June 1, 2023)
    God writes a lot of comedy… the trouble is, God is stuck with so many bad actors who don’t know how to play funny.

    Unworthy Hand@kisstheblade_(June 1, 2023) People are mad about some game because it uses the “Aztecs thought the Spaniards were gods” trope, but I think a FANTASTIC idea for a game would be: take the hilarious Julian Jaynes bicameralist explanation that the Aztecs were guided by voices, and cast the player as that voice. In the pre-conscious mind of bronze age Aztec empire, you are the voice inside the head of an Aztec guy, and have to give him orders like “get dressed” or “eat food” or “try to kill Cortez, that would really be a good thing”

    Meg Hunter-Kilmer@MegHunterKilmer (June 1, 2023) The best thing about librarians is that they’re genuinely delighted to learn things so when I check out a cool book and say “This was typed by a Servant of God so it’ll be a relic one day!” or “Only 5 libraries in the country have this book!” they’re excited with me.  Just told a lovely librarian at@HowardU “This book is by a priest who’s considered the father of modern Burundian literature and he’s going to be a Saint but there isn’t much scholarship about him because of turmoil in the region since his martyrdom” and she was interested!
    Mary Pezzul@mary_pezzulo (June 1, 2023) Every time I have a horrible night of anxiety and religious trauma and am certain God doesn’t love me or can’t possibly exist… I wake up, I go outside, there are strawberries in the strawberry patch, birds and stray cats in the yard, God. I can’t explain that, but it happens. I’m not saying that God doesn’t speak in Bibles and catechisms and polyphony and sermons, but for me, mostly in plants and animals.

    A Catholic Adventurer@forthequeenbvm (June 1, 2023)
    There must be a middle ground where we defend the Truth, #God and the #Church with courage but without intentionally offending those who we’re defending them against.

    The truth is divisive. No way to avoid that. We see it throughout the #Scriptures especially in the #Gospel. We see it in our history—mind you, I write this on the memorial of #JustinMartyr who was martyred because the Truth is so divisive. But there’s a lot to be said for tone. There’s a way to give someone the truth without using it as a weapon.

    Be bold but be careful. Admonish others with the same delicate tact, consideration and compassion you’d give to your own mother.

What do I think of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse? For my final answer, ask me in nine months after I’ve seen part 3, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Why do I want to see Across the Spider-Verse about 10 more times? Ah, that I can tell you.

    Jolz �@Jolz_Aust (June 2, 2023) I did some reading about the history of the Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion. I love that it’s a devotion centred on the love of Jesus. Unlike other apparitions, it doesn’t use fear tactics to coerce us into prayer and the Sacraments. Sacred Heart of Jesus, protect us ����

    Fr. Casey, OFM@caseyofm (June 2, 2023)

    Today at mass I saw a homeless guy come in and take a big box worth of donations meant for the food pantry.

    Some might call it stealing.

    I guess you could just as easily calling it removing the middle man.

  •  Quote of the Day

    Mark Brumley@mabrumley (June 3, 2023) It would be fun to have a social medium where inquisitive Catholics could discuss and thoughtfully debate substantive theological, philosophical, and political questions. Maybe someday it will exist.

    Carl@HistoryBoomer (June 3, 2023)
    Me: “How ya feeling today?”

    Woke: “Horrible. The cis-hetero white supremacist patriarchy is crushing us!”

    Anti-Woke: “Horrible. The Marxist Critical Race Theory Woke Mind Virus is taking over everything!”

    Me: “Cool, cool, I’m heading out for some falafel. You guys have fun.”

    Kristina Teresa de Jesús@curiously_ktina (June 3, 2023) If you see someone who is hurting, it doesn’t matter if they’re an atheist: ask them, “Can I pray with you right now?” You’d be surprised. They may say yes, and it might change their life.

Meg Hunter-Kilmer@MegHunterKilmer (June 4, 2023)
Once I commended a Dominican for having preached for 40 (!!!) minutes on the Trinity without a single heresy.

“Well, I should hope so!” he said, shocked.

Look, buddy. Today my priest was a modalist by the second sentence. The bar is very low.

(Also please don’t preach for 40 minutes at a parish Sunday Mass.)

One response to “Tweets During Sacred Heart of the Trinity LWIL # 22”

  1. Why does this article have a link to that awful Youtube video “Joan of Arc Was Far From The Holy Figure She’s Portrayed As”, which is not only anti-Catholic but manages to mangle the basic history so badly – and in such a juvenile manner – that almost all the comments are negative.
