Thank you Our Lady of Fatima for prayers answered.

In light of all the political nonsense we have been dealing with, on the 99th year since the miracle of the sun, with my entire heart, I thank our beautiful Mother, and pray for the conversion of the entire world.

My personal little shrine

O my Jesus,
forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those in most need of your Mercy.
Amen.

Learning To Fly

Le signe de la Croix

I was blessed to be able to spend some time with my children at the zoo this afternoon. As we got loaded onto the sky tram at the zoo, my youngest daughter began to wince and whimper about the noises and the jerky movements of the cab. Before we travel anywhere, we say a little prayer asking for the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to pray for us, followed by Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in you, three times and we finish up with Abba Father, I love you.  We began with this little burst of praying and looked about as we climbed higher and higher. My daughter, still a bit nervous at the trip across the zoo looked at me with a bit of fear.

She had never been afraid before, as we had been on this tram several times over the years. This time, was a little different. I reminded her of how she always wanted to fly, and told her to lift her arms out wide, like she was gliding, and she did. She let out a little cry and I said, okay, now bring one arm back in and touch your forehead. She did and held it there. I said, okay now say, in the name of the Father. She smiled. I told her then to bring her hand down and now touch her heart, and she did. I told her, now say, and of the Son. Her smile got larger. Then I told her to touch one shoulder and bring her arm back and touch the other one, and she did. I told her, now say, and of the Holy Spirit. She giggled a bit, and began to fly.

We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God;
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Amen.

May the Divine assistance remain always with us!

Amen.

The Human Race And Racism

social-justice-begins-here-baby

 

The foundation of all racism in the world, is giving society’s the decision to choose who is, and who is not, a human being. 

 

End abortion. End Racism. Human Rights.

Discipleship Comes With Persecution

per1

Regarding:

If We Reject Trump, We May Be Inviting Persecution

The election is not Constantine VS Diocletian.

Discipleship and persecution in this world are in union. Although bitter at times, sweetness soon follows. It is what we do with this persecution, that can make or break us. When we see our persecution from the view of our Lord, mounted on the Cross, our vantage point changes and our vision becomes further, our faith in Him becomes stronger, and we come to see the great vastness of the souls who have not yet come to understand the beautiful love of our Lords passion. “Enter through the narrow gate”.

No matter who you vote for, discipleship comes with persecution to those who live and breath the faith. When we vote, we are voting for a political leader. We are not giving them our heart, mind and soul so to worship them. We are called to vote, we are not called to   worship them, nor the political party they belong to.. “No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.” But, this persecution also comes with the JOY of our Lord. “And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me.”.

In this moment, when we are Crucified with Him,  we come to the full realization that the “world” lost its moral compass long ago and everything we, while attached to it, had done, had been for vanity. In this moment, we can choose to let go of the attachment to it, no matter what this attachment may be,  and grasp the absolute love and peace of Christ, freely pulling closer to Him, placing all our hope and trust in Him and not the things of this world. Then, we can as He asks, set the world on fire with Him. “Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.”

What this election has become, is the choice between worldly illusions, or discipleship. If you choose discipleship, keep in mind, His name is not on the voting ballot, as He is already our King, our Lord and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Follow Him.

Religious Freedom Today

BOY DISPLAYS SIGN DURING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RALLY IN GREEN BAY

In a recent story:

Hillary Clinton: Make Christians Change Their Religious Views to Support Abortion

Wake up –

She can’t. First off, Religious Freedom first and foremost comes from God. Not the government of the USA, nor any government. We all have the GOD given freedom to worship and live the faith. The problem is, many have placed the state & society above God and live in the illusion as if the state guarantees your right to worship.

A priest facebook friend recently posted: “Just because you don’t pay attention to politics, it doesn’t mean politics won’t pay attention to you.” 

The fact is,  the government infiltrated by the culture of death, has ROBBED you of that right to pray & worship where and when you desire along with doing what is right and just. For a Catholic today to live what they profess each and every week at Holy Mass, (What We Believe) in today’s world, takes that soul straight into the realm of persecution for living the Truth in every day life.  Even in our own homes. Be convicted in the faith and not watered down.  

BE NOT AFRAID – Live it! What good is to to profess and not live? BE NOT AFRAID. Marvelous and Miraculous things take shape when you live what we profess, through all society. Thus we answer our Lord when He called that how He had wished that the entire world was a blaze.

Second: If anything she is saying in this article has screamed to me is this, it is a call from our Lord, saying get right with Me and LIVE the faith, love God above all else and your neighbor as yourself, in the coming persecutions. Now is the time to repent. Turn back to Him. We can never be robbed of the right to worship our Lord. We may be beaten for our faith, imprisoned and persecuted, but they can never take away anything, that our Lord Himself has given to us. 

If that false notion of separation of Church and State creep into your thoughts, remember as a Catholic that God comes first! I highly suggest reading:

CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH

DOCTRINAL NOTE
on some questions regarding
The Participation of Catholics in Political Life

 

Peace!
