Lord help me to focus and work on all that is needed for You in 2013. Help me to live as You have intended me to live. Help me to be as You have created me to be. Help me Lord to be there in times of need for those You have placed in the life you have created for me. May I lead all souls back to You O Lord in my words, actions and way of living. May I always seek You first in all things, especially in my sufferings and trials. May I find joy in You and through You my Beloved Lord, and share this joy with the entire world, so that in its times of sadness and bitterness, it may hold on to your sweet compassion with both hands, and eat only what You give to them. May I continue to win the battles over evil in my soul and in my life, with You and all your Saints and Holy Angels at the ready. May all the holy souls in Purgatory be released from their bondage and accept you’re pardon and mercy my Lord. May the children you have given to me, pull ever closer to You this year and stay at Your side. May we all grow in all the gifts of the most Holy Spirit. May the murder of all you’re children through the heinous act of abortion come to an end. May Your One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church and all her members come to know You better and serve only You. May those who have left, return to You. If my death in exile should come this year, I unite it to Your death and give You my Love, all the glory and honor. I hope to spend eternity with You. May I become so lost in You, that all I find, is You, all I see, taste and touch and know, is You. May you have mercy on us all. I ask this through the Immaculate Heart of Mary our Mother, to Your most Sacred Heart O Lord. Amen
Have a blessed and Christ centered New Year.
In order to remain “One Nation Under God” we must focus on the Spiritual Cliff that is in front of the US, behind the US and surrounding the US rather than the fiscal cliff. Put your faith back in God and not in His creation nor the men who believe they are gods.
Here is another idea that goes with my post a few days ago “Holy Innocents Pledge“. MOST Vons Food Stores in California have Starbucks located inside of their stores. Contact them and let them know you will not purchase food or prescriptions from them until they STOP supporting Abortion.

“The boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without his parents knowing it. They assumed he was with the caravan, and they went to look for him among their relations and acquaintances.” Luke 2:44
How many times I just assumed our Lord was among my family and acquaintances FIRST, before checking the “Temple” where He always is, taking care of the Fathers Business. While continuing on in the wrong direction, thinking everything was just dandy. When the reality was far from “dandy”. Unless we seek Him FIRST, and continue to ensure He is among us, we slip into a false security of “Thinking” He is still with us, when we need to face the fact, we NEED to be WITH Him. When one discovers He is not, one needs to run frantically back to where one has left Him.
Yesterday, I posted about a portion of Starbucks purchases going to support Abortion. “Come Together” with our Lord.
Why is it we find such a need to stop for that cup of coffee in the morning on our way to where ever we are going? Wouldn’t our time be much better spent having a cup of coffee at the breakfast table with our family’s? Our spouses? Our children? Or alone in prayer with our Lord? How about spending that first 15 minutes of the day, at home with the people God placed in our lives, if only to tell them you love them over coffee rather than in a line worrying about if they got your order right? Time is something we don’t seem to have enough of until its to late. That first 15 minutes of the day to pray with loved ones could make all the difference in the world. Make your coffee time count. Pray together. Especially to end abortion. This way, it’s a win win situation. Your not supporting abortion unknowingly, and you’re praying to end it.
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, the reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, for the end of abortion worldwide and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
An article came out today Starbucks to Politicians: Come Together in which Starbucks will be writing “Come Together” on all cups of coffee sold on Thursday and Friday. According to Starbucks, the words are intended as a message to lawmakers about the damage being caused by the divisive negotiations over the “fiscal cliff.”
Taking into account Starbucks is a financial contributor to Planned Parenthood, I propose we all stop drinking their coffee and send a message ourselves. Tomorrow is the Massacre of the Innocents. Rather then buy a cup, place a cup of water, representing the tears of all who regret their abortions on their counter, with the words “STOP FUNDING ABORTION”. Just an idea that came quickly from our Lord today, after reading the articles on Facebook. Glory to God.
O God, whom the Holy Innocents confessed and proclaimed on this day, not by speaking but by dying, grant, we pray, that the faith in your which we confess with our lips may also speak through our manner of life. Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ your Son was made known by the message of an Angel, may by his Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of his Resurrection. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever, and ever. Amen
A voice was heard in Ramah,
sobbing and loud lamentation;
Rachel weeping for her children,
and she would not be consoled,
since they were no more.
Christmas morning, my daughter received a drawing pad where the pen writes with water. As the day calmed down from the excitement of opening gifts, I held it and began to draw. The first thing to come to mind was the Chi-Rho. As I drew it on the pad, I quickly seen the Infant Christ in the manger. Keep in mind, I have never been given the gift of artists and my ability to draw is as advanced as drawing stick people. When i drew it, the “P” looked like the “Babe” and the “X” His manger. Today, I can still see the same, but with a much deeper meaning.
From Conception to Resurrection and Beyond.
The Chi-Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus, as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:9-14
