“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
You don’t have to show me a soul who loves God, as God shows you that soul Himself. St. Florian, please help to put out the fires of hell, in souls who do not understand how hurtful the sins they commit are to our Lord. Help repentant sinners to put out the fires of sinfulness, as you have helped me, in which were started through my own fault. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
There is no distance nor amount of time that could stand in the way, of getting my Lord a glass of water.. Please read here

My “God Mother” was Matron of Honor.
Today is the day the Lord has made Let us rejoice and be glad Glory to God
For longer than I can remember, I have come to accept the evil one has taken control of my dreams. Hear me out. But he can only set the stage. He can not control the content, nor the direction. I only know this because I have not been able to stop dreaming about someone in my past. This person is NEVER in my thoughts, words, desires nor is his name ever on my lips. I could care less about this particular person or where he is or doing. I forgave him and prayed for his conversion. He was someone who I loved very much and was hurt by immensely but I had forgiven him and moved on.
I KNOW the evil one is doing this because of the state of my soul at the time I was with this person. The evil one keeps trying to bring this person back into my thoughts and actions, by trying to make me do things that in my stupidity while with this person I would have done without even thinking, and I find it rather funny because the devil is showing his cards and he lost. I forgave this man for doing what he had done to me. I released him. Its obvious, the devil hasn’t gotten the memo. I had also repented deeply for being that person and our Lord is showing me, who He intended me to be. No more to chase after the things and people that used to hold me back from who He, our Lord, needed me to be. Who He created me to be. I love our Lord.
Every time I dream about this person, it’s always in his home where he can control the situation. Its his turf and I am unwelcome. It’s always the same. The house is falling down and held together by garbage that he treasured over me. He is always very plastic in his actions to me and is always waiting for someone other than me to come over and my being there is just another inconvenience. The only reason I am there ever in my dream is a mystery. Last night was different. He told me, you can stay here with me, I missed you and my response back to him, but I don’t love you that way. I don’t want to be with you.I never want to be with you.
Prayers please, that these dreams stop already. I haven’t lost any sleep over them, because our Lord is protecting me. I do love this person as if I didn’t, I would have never forgiven him nor would I pray for him and his family. But I do not want to dream about him anymore. He is NOT my dream boy and that ship sailed a long time ago.
I know I am battling Satan. I may not ever be able to defeat Satan.. but I, through Christ have defeated my sins and death. That is enough… Game over “It was you who saved us, Lord: we will praise your name without ceasing.”
Glory to God.
From last night, on my Facebook page:
Spent some time with our Lord in Exposition. Strange thing took place, like always LOL. A thought of how wonderful it was to finally be back home (In the Catholic Church) after being separated for so long came, as I knelt in front of our Lord and as always I thanked Him for His grace and love..
I remembered something personal, about how the bells would ring out for a returning repentant sinner. LMBO as I got in my car on the way home, the radio station decided to play a Block of Bell songs. It was songs all about bells on my way home and the last one to play was If Only You Knew by Patti Labelle… You tell me.
As I got ready to go to bed, I opened Divine Office and began to pray. Part of the prayers for the night included:
1 Corinthians 2:7-10a
What we utter is God’s wisdom: a mysterious, a hidden wisdom. God planned it before all ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age knew the mystery; if they had known it, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory. Of this wisdom it is written:
“Eye has not seen, ear has not heard
nor has it so much as dawned on man
what God has prepared for those who love him.”
Yet God has revealed this wisdom to us through the Spirit.
Glory to God!
LMBO! After posting this story on this blog, I tried to share it on Stumble. LMBO It wouldn’t let me. I couldn’t STUMBLE! LMBO Glory to God (Not making this up)
I attended Holy Mass today at St. Joseph Cathedral and had a vision. Upon entering the Cathedral, I walked up to the tabernacle of our Lord and knelt down to pray. I see in front of me a Staurogram. It was not from me and even when I closed my eyes, it was still there. It was everywhere I looked. I looked down on the carpet and it was there also. Very bright light just gleamed on the red carpet in the shape of the Staurogram. As I stood up it disappeared and I took my seat in the pew and waited for Mass to begin. Glory to God!
If you are here, in body, spirit and mind, you are everywhere that Holy Mass is being celebrated at that very second the Priest consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of our Lord, giving Him all the glory and honor! When you are IN the Eucharist, you are in God’s time. You are in God’s holy presence, with Him, everywhere. Thus the reason to keep clean and receive Him in the state of grace. Places you never knew existed. You are present through Him, with Him and in Him.
My last post Assumption of Mary, sparked some deeper thoughts in regards to the photos of a church I posted. A very beautiful place located in the Julian Alps in Bled Lake Slovenia. The area was carved from glaciers leaving picturesque views with a beautiful lake, and in the lake, a small island that in the 1500, a Catholic Church was built for the Glory of God and in honor of the Assumption of Mary. It goes so much deeper then “this looks like a good place to build a church”. So much deeper. It took centuries of Divine Providence, to create the glaciers, carve out the mountains, plant and grow the surrounding forest, fill the lake, leaving room for the island, filling many souls with the good news of our Lord, going fourth and spreading the gospel, many of which became Martyrs, souls growing in faith in Christ, to identify a tiny spot, beautiful enough to honor Mama Mary and her Assumption into heaven. This is but a sliver of God’s love for her, made known to the world for doing His will.
When I found the photo, I desired nothing more than to go to this place. Definitely placing it on my list of places I had to go! Realizing in a very shot amount of time, with a smile, in prayer, I have been there. Many times.
Before pondering this, I fell for the natural beauty of this place and as it pulled me into a deeper understanding of God’s love for her, made me aware of God’s love for us and how it’s so visible in every aspect of His creation. He takes the natural and joins it with the supernatural. Not only did it take Him centuries to create a beautiful place to honor the Mother of our Lord, but we share in that beauty, by simply being present at Holy Mass. Present meaning in full communion with Mass. In total concentration in prayer on where we are and not what we will be doing after Mass, all so we can be TOGETHER with Him and the Holy of Holy’s in His body, the Eucharist! Since the Beginning!
Oh how wonderful the “Interior Castle” truly is.
But more wonderful, more powerful, you are here, because He is here –
still in exile, giving the Glory to God.
