Discourse With Charity


70012731_753945208394087_1410423563009130496_n

Often times when we think we are fighting the evil we face, we take the same path Saul (Before becoming St. Paul) took, and use a force we assume is that of our Lord, when it truly is not.

The communication on social media lately, proves this as comments become heated, tempers flare and charity (love for God and neighbor) is tossed aside for the road of MY FEELINGS is taken instead.

As you meander through social media today, tomorrow and always, I ask you to take a look at who you are addressing with this in mind. When you speak to anyone, speak as if you are addressing our Lord. Its not to say that it is, but each soul has been created in the image of God, and when we respect this fact, our tongues are held when malice seeks to be spouted rather than charity. Each of us is on this journey. Be mindful of this, that you may be further up, or further back from the one you are addressing,  but the reality is, the journey does end and we must work to be the good and faithful servant of our Lord.

Something to ponder today, this entire chapter of Catechism of the Catholic Church:

PART THREE
LIFE IN CHRIST

SECTION ONE
MAN’S VOCATION LIFE IN THE SPIRIT

CHAPTER TWO
THE HUMAN COMMUNION

Human society must primarily be considered something pertaining to the spiritual. Through it, in the bright light of truth, men should share their knowledge, be able to exercise their rights and fulfill their obligations, be inspired to seek spiritual values; mutually derive genuine pleasure from the beautiful, of whatever order it be; always be readily disposed to pass on to others the best of their own cultural heritage; and eagerly strive to make their own the spiritual achievements of others. These benefits not only influence, but at the same time give aim and scope to all that has bearing on cultural expressions, economic, and social institutions, political movements and forms, laws, and all other structures by which society is outwardly established and constantly developed. –  CA 36 § 2.

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.

If today your hear His voice, harden not your hearts

The Beauty of Christ Cathedral


IMG_2412

For the many souls outraged over the “decor” of the new Christ Cathedral.

Ponder if you will 

Imagine a new married couple. They purchase their first house. Is that house automatically furnished and full of memories? No. Over time and years, that house is transformed into their home.There are good times and bad, building expansion, downsizing,  and rest.

What makes it a home? The souls who reside in it. Its not the decorations that should grab our attention, but the fact that our Lord now resides here and is inviting all of us to reside with Him also

Show me that Thou art my Mother.

O Mary, conceived without sin,

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)

I Love You Too Lord


Fish-in-the-fire-original-FX1

Oh how that “charcoal fire” burned into my conscious the sins I had committed against You my Spouse, through the times before I knew You my Lord and my God. My sins ever before me, burning with painful chains which held me from You. Unable to see You in the Fire of Love, unable to see You suffering for me.

Today my Lord, today, you have come to me, in Love, that I may love and live again in You. My sins burned away, leaving only You remaining, for me to follow You.

Thank you Lord, I love You too.
