O beautiful Flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine,
Splendor of Heaven, holy and singular,

Show me that Thou art my Mother.

pray for us who have recourse to Thee!

The earth is the LORD’s and all it holds, the world and those who dwell in it. – Psalm 24
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!
Blessed Independence Day
Thank you Abba, Father. I love You too.
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference’s by which He is offended.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
W. B. Yeats – 1865-1939
If you find yourself still asking, but what does that mean? Look no further than the post
“Let me be blunt: you’ve been played for idiots. Idios, in the original Greek, means an independent agent, belonging to oneself. That is how I mean it. The designer of the Sexual Revolution believed you’d go so far to sacrifice your own families for sexual autonomy (most of you aren’t even married yet, but you’ve severed yourselves from what your ancestors handed down, a process of cutting begun by your grandfathers).”
How many times do we hear, “If only God would intervene __________________ (fill in the blank) wouldn’t have happened..
The problem is not God, but the refusal of God. What most don’t seem to see today, is that He has intervened. He sent His only begotten Son, who suffered, died and rose from the dead for us. The problem is not that God isn’t doing anything, but rather not everyone is listening to Him or following Him.
Can we not see how far this society has fallen into the selfishness and lack of empathy people have today for one another and all creation? Its only a symptom of a much larger problem. Who can I cheat to get ahead for my own selfish ambition is the platform for most of our politicians today. Classrooms are full of students assaulting teachers instead of learning. Elderly are beaten on the streets, and sometimes within their own homes, simply for being elderly. Foster care is full of children abandoned by parents. Churches, Synagogues & Mosques are attacked and people blame the faith instead of the lack of faith these attackers have.. Relationships and family’s have become something some change out no different than they change out their phones for a “better” one. You hear daily the call for more & more abortion on demand, because people refuse to take responsibility for their reckless behavior. And we can’t figure out why people can be so cruel to animals?
Repent and believe in the Gospel.
