What does glory be to God mean?

When praying and saying glory be to God, it is showing reverence and God deserves all the glory, praise and continual thanks. He has given us everything and we are to show appreciation and we do that by giving glory to Him. It can be said, just as we say “Glory be to God…”, but also shown in our actions and how we treat other people. So the next time you have a moment, always be sure to give the glory to God by doing something kind for others and to be thinking of how you would want to be treated.


How do we manifest God’s glory?

It is wonderful to say thank you and acknowledge the glory, but to actually live it makes it that much sweeter. You can manifest God’s glory by trusting Jesus with everything and having faith that everything will work out the way He wants it. It is about aligning your will with His perfect will (which seems incredibly scary – but can be one of the most amazing things in your life!)

So, you can trust and have faith, but also love!

Love others as you love yourself and love God first and foremost! The two biggest commandments!

Don’t worry about the details, just love God, trust God, and have faith and you will manifest God’s glory!


What is the most powerful Catholic prayer?

Some say it’s the Hail Mary.

Some might say it’s the prayer that Jesus gave us, the Lord’s Prayer.

Perhaps, or maybe all of them.

But, the most powerful Catholic prayer is said with a burning heart for Jesus. An authentic real prayer, one where you talk with Him and pour yourself out for Him. Where you trust Him and give your burdens and thoughts to Him. It’s one where you are wanting Him closer.

The most powerful prayer is not necessarily even said with words, but with your heart. Therefore, never fail that next time you pray to be sure your heart is in it!
