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:

The Participation of Catholics in Political Life

Never Forget: National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children


ndrac

Heavenly Father,
Thou hast given us the gift of freedom
to love and to follow in Thy ways and commands.
Some parents choose to abuse this freedom
by destroying the gift of life
which Thou hast given to their offspring.
Please forgive those who destroy human life
by aborting their unborn babies.
Give these unborn children the opportunity
to enjoy Thee for all eternity,
if it according to Thy ordinance.
Assist me in being one in solidarity with Thy little ones
by taking to heart the words of Thy Son,
“whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine,
you did for Me.” (Mt. 25:40)
Therefore, allow me today, Father,
to adopt spiritually an unborn child
and to offer my prayers, works,
joys and sufferings for that little one,
so that child will be able to be born and live
for Thy greater honor and glory.
We pray this in Jesus’ name,
in union with the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever.

Amen.

Prayer for Aborted Babies from Catholic OnLine

Mea Culpa


throughmyfault

I don’t believe in coincidences, as I have said many times before. Today on my FB page, I posted this, due to being fed up with the total lack of responsibility we have taken lately in regards to blaming the Catholic Church, Priests, Bishops, Cardinals and even our Holy Father for everything gone wrong for so long. Here me now, WE ARE THE CHURCH. We only have ourselves to blame for the things wrong within our family’s who are not living the faith, for our lack of being Catholic role models as parents to our Children and what we as the laity need to do very quickly, is to understand that we CAN change this, simply by saying YES LORD once again by truly living the faith.

Posted on FB today:

“Rant of the day AIMED at the Catholic Laity who find a constant NEED to blame the Priest for not speaking about Abortion, Homosexual Unions and other obvious Mortal Sins during the Homily at Holy Mass. Here’s the issue I have with this entire group who constantly complain about it. As Catholics, we KNOW all the issues mentioned ARE mortal sins. As does ANYONE who is Catholic as they are “core” commandments. Why do we sit here and blame the “Priests” for not teaching this, when WE KNOW ourselves already, they are wrong and sinful and why are we blaming Priests for not teaching this, when the reality is, this NEEDS to be taught IN THE HOME because most Catholics only see the Priest on Sunday for at most a 20 minute homily (that SHOULD be on the Gospel and readings that week, so we can contemplate it in our lives and live it ) when WE as THE CHURCH, the Laity are ALSO responsible for KNOWING the faith and TEACHING our Children so as they can also LIVE IT. We only have ourselves to blame for all this lack of faith and morals. Stop blaming our Lords priests for the job we never did. PAX”

To which a comment was made by a friend:

“Because Other Priests are also The complaining. Alot of Prolife Priests Would like to See more preaching by Their fellow Priests. I think to some extent it’s on the money. Overkill is probably someone who has a grudge to Bear. There is a gray area.”

To which I answered:

“I do agree with that Dave. I also believe that the Word of our Lord is alive and in every aspect of our lives and society, and the message we hear should be brought into the public aspect of our lives each and every second, but, the problem comes from so many who do live as if the faith belongs strictly in the pew. If we were ALL living the faith, teaching it to our children to live it and they were, the world in which we live, in exile, would be a much different place. That being said, I also believe everything happens for a reason and what is taking place with the entire Planned Parenthood fiasco, SHOULD be enough to break open the hearts of the faithful, with zeal and love to KNOW they don’t have to be told 24/7 strictly by the Priest in a Homily, when we know that being brought “into communion” means we understand the evil of this sin, the ramifications of it, and the need to stop it, all while STILL learning other aspects of our Catholic faith (the cornucopia) through Holy Mass, as when we do focus on one thing in particular, we do end up eating only one thing from the table of plenty that is our Lord.”

Shortly after this post, a Priest friend posted on his page this FANTASTIC video, that NEEDS to be seen by the laity which reminds us, we should ALL get back to “work”. Its OUR fault! Its OUR fault! Its OUR most grievous fault.

Thank you LORD for another soul who sees the problem today and feels a need to fix it. Glory to God.
