Cling To Our LORD


vine-and-branches-light

In times as this, which we have seen and lived through as the Catholic Church, I have come to understand the meaning of total detachment from what we hold dear, and total attachment to our LORD and what He deems holy, right an just.

It is our Lords Church. His Bride. Unmoved by political, social or worldly ambitions, but only that which is Holy, Perfect and True.

Now is a great time to purge oneself of any worldly attachment, and cling to our Lord. Knowing that man will always fail, and our Lord has never failed, but has already won the race.

There has always been souls in the church, even in high positions, who were tempted to worldly ambitions. Its nothing new. Look at how St. Francis was called and what he was called to do. Look at St. Teresa Avila, how she was called by our LORD to reform the Carmelites. It happens. What needs to be done, is a serious cleaning of self, allowing our Lord to convert the hearts of us all. Great Saints are born in the Church amidst the purging of the darkness. The choice is there for all to make. Do I adhere to our Lord? Or do I adhere to myself? “But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

Be not afraid. Return to your FIRST Love, who is our LORD, repent and believe in the Gospel. Jesus Christ is LORD. Pray for the church. Pray for conversions and pray without ceasing, trusting in our Lord, completely.

Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? 
You have the words of eternal life. 
We have come to believe
and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.”

Psalms, chapter 146

Hallelujah!

Praise the LORD, my soul;

I will praise the LORD all my life,

sing praise to my God while I live.

I

Put no trust in princes,

in children of Adam powerless to save.

Who breathing his last, returns to the earth;

that day all his planning comes to nothing.

II

Blessed the one whose help is the God of Jacob,

whose hope is in the LORD, his God,

The maker of heaven and earth,

the seas and all that is in them,

Who keeps faith forever,

secures justice for the oppressed,

who gives bread to the hungry.

The LORD sets prisoners free;

the LORD gives sight to the blind.

The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;

the LORD loves the righteous.

The LORD protects the resident alien,

comes to the aid of the orphan and the widow,

but thwarts the way of the wicked.

10 The LORD shall reign forever,

your God, Zion, through all generations!

Hallelujah!

Refugees And Mercy


grapes-on-the-vine

Our Lord appointed 12 Apostles. His mission didn’t change because of one betrayer. Our mission is His mission. His mission is Love.

In a few weeks, we Catholics will be experiencing the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. If our Lord is giving us this time of Mercy,time to turn back to Him, how then can we not extend that mercy we will been given, to others in need?

I find myself pondering James 2:13 “For the judgment is merciless to one who has not shown mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.”

We are not called to live in fear of anyone or anything but are called to live only in the fear of our Lord.

Terrorism is never to be feared, but rather needs to be reminded, in our hearts, of the terror it can face, in the presence of the Face of God. Our Lords own words to Judas need to come to mind, that being “Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”.

Knowing that the Mission of Love is eternal and ongoing, we can never lose sight to love one another and pray for those who persecute us,  as the mission of hate has no mission, but only self gratification and that self gratification dies and like dust, is blown away by the wind.

Peace and continual praying for the conversion of hearts, as our Lord is converting my heart to love and serve Him in all created in His image.
