If the Biblical characters had Twitter…

For me, there is no better way than humor, to learn and share the faith. I give you my favorite imagined tweets from the Bible characters. Check the time stamps and handles, especially! I tried my very best. Look for more Bible Tweets, in the future! Be sure to share and subscribe so you don’t miss them!

Motherhood’s 7 Corporal Works of Mercy

IMG_1672

The following is intended to be comedic. Please do not take it too seriously. Enjoy!

The Motherhood Corporal Works of Mercy:

  1. Give drink to the thirsty = Breastfeeding
    1. I don’t have to tell any mother that breastfeeding and rocking a baby back and forth, at all hours of the night, makes her some kind of martyr! From cracked nipples to plugged ducts to supply struggles, you have a lot of suffering uniting you with Christ, mama.
  2. Feed the hungry = Breastfeeding; Enduring kids begging, “can I have a snack yet”, approximately, 234134782193471280973489012 times a day.
    1. The breastfeeding is conveniently both, feeding the hungry and giving drink to the thirsty, but it doesn’t end there.
    2. As a mom, you will be made a saint by enduring some broken record version of, “I’m hungry! I need a snack!” Maybe I should auto-tune them for fun? Imagine Akon harping after you, “I’m staAAaaaaaAAAAaaaarving, Ma!” On second thought, no.
  3. Shelter the homeless = Skipping the designer purse and shoes
    1. You give yourself a damn pat on the back! You may have to hold back the tears as you put that fancy, designer, leather handbag on the shelf whilst holding your stained and torn diaper bag, but you have allowed your children to keep their home by being a good steward of your family finances! Good on you mama. Offer it up, and enjoy the roof over your head with your beautiful children.cropped-img_16722.jpg
  4. Visit the sick = BOOGERS EVERYWHERE
    1. Have you met a toddler?! Adorable and comedic petri dishes of the booger plague, they are! This corporal work comes to YOU! Johnny may have just licked the floor in that public restroom or eaten m&m’s off the floor of the subway train, making that vein in your forehead throb a little, but don’t worry! You get to exercise this corporal work of mercy, soon! You needn’t  even go to the hospital.
  5. Visit the prisoners = Discipline
    1. Whether you had to take your teens phone and computer, making them feel like a prisoner 🙄, or you are sitting in front of a toddler preventing them from leaving timeout, you definitely got this one done.
  6. Bury the dead = Pets; Toys
    1. I recently attended a heartfelt burial at sea (the toilet) for our goldfish, complete with a loudly wailing child, music, and a eulogy. We have even had to say goodbye to a hedgehog. Don’t laugh. I deserve an Oscar for playing my part as funeral officiant and sad mourner. I did get choked up when we had to let a dog go as a family. Death is always hard on a family. Consider that lovingly attending to your children and getting this right means your kids will know how to cope later on in life. Your role is important, mama!
    2. I must periodically go through and find all the ‘dead’ or broken toys and take them to the dump. Is this a burial? I submit that it is!
  7. Give alms to the poor = Rice Bowl; Chore tithing
    1. Parishes nationwide participate in Operation Rice Bowl where people collect their change and money throughout Lent to feed the hungry. Do this with your kids. Try to give them an allowance, even just a quarter for ‘helping’ you clean. Explain to them how a tithe works and why we do it. This work is arguably one of the most important. Raising people who are in the habit of helping the poor is one of the best things you can offer the world and the church, as a mother!

I’m excited to announce the launch of a YouTube channel for Rosalie Contrite, which will have much of the same material from the blog and podcast. It is to serve as an adjunct for these, and to reach another audience and to better engage the existing one.

I hope to have topics and to announce them on Twitter with the #RosalieContriteYT. You can use this hashtag to give feedback, ask questions, and propose topics! I hope to see you all soon!
