It Is Him – The Eucharist


I need to share this. We always struggle with our faith. We hear Him calling us, and yet, we put off “going home” because we think we know better. We listen to the “world”, and think it is better. It is not. We are not. Our Lord knows EVERYTHING and knows what you need before you even ask Him.

I could not understand why those around me, didn’t want to believe my conversion story. This: Just one-third of U.S. Catholics agree with their church that Eucharist is body, blood of Christ – Tells me why. If souls do not believe Him, why would they believe me? I refuse to stop there. I know without a doubt it is Him and nothing in this world, will ever get me to not listen to Him and not believe Him again. Hearing Him has left a mark on me that I can never deny Him again.

This is a huge part of my conversion back home to the Catholic Church. I had been struggling for MANY years with this sin. I hope it brings other to face their fear of their own sins, and overcome them, returning to our Lord who waits for you with open arms.

Easter 2008 – My husband was home from Yuma (USMC separated us for a time), and I went into the yard to water. There is a protestant church behind our home and as I watered the trees and grass, I watched all these cars pulling in for “Easter” services. I stood and chucked a bit, as a Catholic, and said to myself: What did they even do in there? Its not real worship! – THAT VERY SECOND – In my heart, I heard our LORD ask me: Where are you? What are YOU doing? – That voice ROCKED my world. Destroyed it! Where was I? What was I doing? I certainly wasn’t at Mass! I certainly wasn’t where I was supposed to be! It bothered me for a WEEK. I could NOT stop thinking about it. By the time the following Sunday came, I found myself NEEDING to get to Mass. It was Divine Mercy Sunday, and I NEVER stopped attending Holy Mass again. The following December, I heard that voice in my heart again! The post below is what He said. The YEARS since, is what He has done to me ❤ I share this to give Him the praise, glory, honor and all the power. Thank you LORD. I love You too.

June – Month Of The Sacred Heart Of Jesus


Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You and I love You too.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus can be traced back to the eleventh and twelfth century. For more information, please see:

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

Devotion to the Heart of Jesus

Month of the Sacred Heart

 

Most Sacred, most loving Heart of Jesus,
You are concealed in the Holy Eucharist,
And You beat for us still.
Now, as then, You say: “With desire I have desired.”
I worship You with all my best love and awe, 
With fervent affection,
With my most subdued, most resolved will.
For a while You take up Your abode within me.
O make my heart beat with Your Heart!
Purify it of all that is earthly,
All that is proud and sensual,
All that is hard and cruel,
Of all perversity,
Of all disorder,
Of all deadness.
So fill it with You,
That neither the events of the day,
Nor the circumstances of the time,
May have the power to ruffle it;
But that in Your love and Your fear,
It may have peace.

(Blessed John Cardinal Henry Newman)

Blaming The Faith


220px-Meister_des_Hausbuches_003

Pondering: Religion is the cause of more problems today than anything!

When I hear that statement, I can’t help but think of  Nero blaming the Christians for the burning of Rome. Granted, he ordered the burning and if one in his army had been baptized, but was only following his orders, he is a follower of Nero, and not our Lord.

“This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” . Lv 19:18 “Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your own people. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”

If someone states, I am a christian, and rams his car through people on purpose to kill them, he is either seriously psychotic or demonic or, he is not a Christian, but rather follows his own design and not that of our Lord. To BE a Christian, is to be what our Lord called us to be. His follower. His disciple. His children. Remember: “He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire. ”

What the world assumes to be “christian” is nothing more then secularism looking directly back at them in the mirror. “Don’t JUDGE ME”!  Well, “By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?”  I do judge you by the actions you take and words you say. Its how a conscious is formed through right reason and logic, with grace.

The constant blame today toward Christians being bigots,  when they refuse to go with the flow of the Religion of Secularism, in which Politicians and “Scholars” (in quotes because Wisdom never changes but knowledge does) assume to present “their” truth, that a human being in the womb has no rights, or that a man can be a woman, or a woman can be a man, or marriage does not mean one woman and one man for the growth and strength of a prosperous society, that we must be able to pass legislation to make it easier for people to kill themselves through assisted suicide, is the religion of secularism. Not Christianity. Its time to check the facts of the faith in which we place in our Lord.

“Your truth is not my truth.” No! Your truth is not Truth at all, but its truly misplaced faith placed in society and political leaders and not in Jesus Christ. Bigotry is intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. Truth is not an opinion. Its the Truth.

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Pondering Two Cups: Salvation And Wrath


slide_3

Two Cups

As I sit and pray during this Palm Sunday at Holy Mass, after receiving our Lord, my mind turned to the Cup of Salvation.

What exactly is the Cup of Salvation, I pondered.

As I sat in prayer, my heart grabbed on to Life in Christ. The Cup of Salvation being the Cup of Life given to the only begotten Son. His Life! As I pondered more, the cup of wrath came to my thoughts. Wrath being what comes to us, when we do not live in Christ. When we do our own will. When we disregard the other. This came, as we have free will, with a choice to make.  Wrath? Or Salvation?

I pondered more deeply, how wrath has been my way (sinfulness) in this world without our Lord, and how Salvation is what we work on as we continue to drink His cup. As we take on His Life, passing over our own, therefore with His joy and His peace, the wrath we deserve, has already been paid.

Thank you Lord, I love You too.

Visible Evil Today


ACA-Grace

If you want to know what is going on, why there is SO much visible evil today, the answer to your question to what is going on is very simple.

Grace. God’s grace to see things as they are, to repent and to run back to Him. That is what is happening – “Where sin increased, grace overflowed all the more”

Use this time wisely. Get things in order. Get back on His path. Make a change for the better. For the good.

Repent
