May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,

who turn to you with confidence
and enable us by your gracious protection

No Doubt In My Heart, It Is St. Michael the Archangel


car crash

EDIT TO ADD: Never mind: Although I am sure he helped to get the Priest where he needed to be at the perfect time:

Mystery Priest Who Showed Up at a Crash Scene Then Vanished Has Been Identified — and Here’s the Unlikely Way He Came Forward

priest1

May God bless you always Rev. Patrick Dowling.

It’s STILL miraculous. To think for a second that our Lord didn’t have a hand in this Priest being right there at the perfect time, having the “tools” needed, advising the rescue workers that their tools would now work, the fact he became a priest in the first place and did our Lords will, is interesting and miraculous in itself. Glory STILL goes to God. I see our Lord’s hand in this no matter what anyone else sees.
______________________________________________

Everyone keeps speculating as to who the Mystery “Priest” was in regards to the story that broke a few days ago.
See here: Could “Mystery Priest” be a long-dead Benedictine Monk?

What everyone keeps missing is his words…

“your tools will work now.”

I can’t help but see St. Michael the Archangel at work. He is after all the patron of Firefighters, Police and rescue workers.

Angel priest in Missouri details emerge: Anointed crash victim and firefighters (Video)

In any case, thank you Lord for sending a Heavenly Host, to help all involved. May the glory be yours for all time.

From EWTN:

Glorious prince St. Michael,
chief and commander of the heavenly hosts,
guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits,
servant in the house of the Divine King
and our admirable conductor,
you who shine with excellence
and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil,
who turn to you with confidence
and enable us by your gracious protection
to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

I pray to him all the time, for the protection of all our Lord’s first responders…

Living Proof All Around


Vatican Pope

With the release of Pope Francis encyclica, Lumen Fidei, (PDF HERE) today, which he worked with the help of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, the Consecration to St. Michael the Archangel, along with the news of the Beatification of Blessed Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII, I can say its been a busy faith full day, and not business as usual.

I had announced on July 1 via my Facebook page:

In 1998, I had a very amazing encounter, in which I was asked questions about things only God knew about me. In this encounter, events were mentioned and I was asked about them… I thought it was just a “Conversation”. Most everything that has been told to me, has come to pass. The only thing I can say about this with true understanding is this: It brought me back home to our Lord. I do not fear the things taking place. I only have fear of the Lord.

I stand by this, because:

“The entire conversation is etched on my soul, and I remember it and the events that took place during, and after as if they are being read back to me, and pointed out as they occur. I have lived like this since that day, watching, sometimes in the past, trembling in fear, and now, in love and understanding. The very fact I am saying this today, is in direct correlation to when I was told to reveal this about me. I do not fear what others may say, as I know without a doubt, this could only be done by God, and the things He has done to my soul only He could do. Glory to God. Repent. Today I know I am not alone.”

You see, when my conversion began in full swing, my family and even for a moment, thought I was crazy, because I did not have the gift of “Understanding” from the Holy Spirit in order to “See” where I was in my sinfulness, when God had called my name. I knew in my heart, no one could know the things in my heart, but God. And He did and still does. This brings an entirely different meaning to the words spoken to me back then: “The men in the “White Suits” are going to help you”. I had taken this to mean that I should place my faith in the medicine the world was giving me, and to the worldly, the men in the white suits are not a good thing. I am a repentant sinner who fully understands that I am not home yet. With the grace and mercy of God, through our Lord, He will lead me there one day.

I know without a doubt today, after reading Lumen Fidei, I have lived this faith and continue to do just that through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Glory to God. Good and merciful Lord, THANK YOU!

Through my faith in You O LORD, today! I declare, You created me, You touched me, You saved me, You redeemed me, and I know, You love me! You O Lord are my God. There is no other, you O Lord, are God. You O Lord are whom I love above all things. With your grace O Lord, may I stay with you in Your light, to do they will, and pull closer to you every day, through hope, love and mercy. AMEN

NOTHING that I have said here should give glory to me, nor do I seek any, but only to give everything to God. “Be not afraid”.

Consecration to St. Michael:
Saint Michael the Archangel, invincible Prince of the Angelic hosts and glorious protector of the universal Church, I greet thee and praise thee for that splendour with which God has adorned thee so richly. I thank God for the great graces He hast bestowed upon thee, especially to remain faithful when Satan and his followers rebelled, and to battle victoriously for the honour of God and the Divinity of the Son of Man.

Saint Michael, I consecrate to thee __________________. I choose thee as our patron and protector and entrust the salvation of my soul to thy care. Be the guardian of my obligation as a child of God and of the Catholic Church as again I renounce Satan, his works and pomps.
Assist me by thy powerful intercession in the fulfilment of these sacred promises, so that imitating thy courage and loyalty to God, and trusting in thy kind help and protection, I may be victorious over the enemies of my soul and be united with God in Heaven forever. Amen.

Original – Prayer to St. Michael The Archangel


“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits. Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.

“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be.

“Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord; and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.
R. The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered the root of David.
V. Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.
R. As we have hoped in Thee.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray.

O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as supplicants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin Immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious St. Michael the Archangel, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of souls. Amen.”

Escorting Souls To Our Lord



This picture is called “Escorting Souls to Heaven” by Howard David Johnson.

By praying for the dying, we are in fact walking that soul as far as we can home, to our Lord..

A few months ago, I was with a good friend who was passing on from this world, to eternal life. I sat at his bedside and through our Lord, managed to break the selfish bonds I had attached to him. I started to pray. There were a few souls in the room with him at this time who were conversing about the old days when our friend was in better shape and spirits. Rather then continue in the small talk, I listened to the voice telling me to get to work. In doing so, quickly recruited them to pray with me.

I opened my purse and grabbed the rosary given to me that belonged to my mother, after she had passed away. Along with the rosary, I grabbed a pamphlet that contained the prayers for Divine Mercy given to Saint Faustina by our Lord. The second I began to pray, I could feel something like a hammer smashing all selfishness of fear of breaking up the party, and getting down to work as to why I was there in the first place. I wasn’t called to this mans bedside for a party with friends we had in common. No. I was there to ensure he had an escort home to our Lord.

When my mother passed away many years ago, I sat at her bedside with my brothers and sisters crying not only for losing her, but understanding now that I had grown attached to her and was mourning for my loss rather then praying for her gain. I wasted all that time at her side for myself, rather then in prayer for her soul.

While at my friends side, later that first night, deep in prayer, I could see his fear melt away. He went from slashing his arms around, to holding tight. At this time he was semi conscious and I noticed he faintly started to pray with me. I could hear ever so slightly at times when I would recite the Hail Mary, him reaching for the words from a very deep place in his heart. Using all his might to hang on to each word in a faint whisper with all his strength. I stayed with my friend until 3:30 AM when a word of peace came to my heart. I knew our Lord was telling me to go home and rest as my friends condition was not changing.

I got home and fell asleep on my couch. Not even changing into pajamas. I managed to get a couple hours of rest and quickly woke at 7 AM, with that inner voice in my heart calling to me to get to the hospital. I entered the hospital and to my friends bedside before 7:45. I immediately began to pray the Divine Mercy chaplet. Before I could finish, while half way through the fifth chaplet, my friend Fred’s soul was handed over to our Lord. I finished the Chaplet, said good by and left my friends body satisfied, knowing there will be more time to gather with friends to reminisce about the good old days when he was here.

There was a story recently sent to me about a group of people would would sit with the dying who did not have family to sit with them as they were passing on called “No One Dies Alone“. I was deeply saddened to read this article as the group was just there sitting and holding hands with them. Although they were showing them mercy, no prayers were offered as the group did not believe in God. A snip from the article:

Barbara Farkas is certain about what happens after death. It is the end, she says; there is no heaven, no hell, no journey that lies ahead. Her conviction hasn’t changed, no matter how many times she has sat with the dying.

Well Barbara Farkas, I am certain that there is God, heaven, hell and eternal life. I know this for fact. It was the voice of my Lord that woke me to go and attend to my friend. “In death, the body separates from the soul, the human body decays, and the soul goes to meet God, while awaiting its reunion with its glorified body” (C 997). Death, judgment, heaven and hell, the last things we all will go through. I pray and ask my readers to pray for Barbara Farkas that her heart be converted, That she may, through the Immaculate heart of Mary, to the Sacred Heart of our Lord, give Him the glory and honor of the work she is doing, rather then seek it for her own. It is not her thoughts that are driving her, but that of our Lord. I pray she sees Him working in her by doing this soon.

So often we hear of such story’s, I can’t help but see through the medias attempt to sterilize the death of a human being and equate it to that of a death of a pet. Or even to launch a preemptive strike on our morals again to push for making euthanasia for people acceptable. Call it knowing the truth in the spin cycle of this article. You see, euthanasia is legal in Oregon and the first thing we read in this article is:

Volunteering to aid terminal patients at a hospital, a woman finds patience, calm and compassion she didn’t know she had. No One Dies Alone started in Oregon in 2001 and has spread across the country.

Just in time for the government through Obamacare to pass its next law in support of euthanasia. I know its coming down to putting our elderly to sleep like animals because they cost to much to keep alive. The more I pondered this, the more I couldn’t get the idea of a future government agency or private group of “Death Watchers” out of my thoughts. Can’t make it to your loved ones death bed? NO PROBLEM we will sit with them because we understand how important it is for you to go to work and how much of an inconvenience it must be for a loved one to be dying when your vacation is scheduled. Think about it. Its just one more step into hell for this nation.
One snip from the article is here:

She sympathizes with families who can’t be at the hospital when a relative dies. Some live too far away or can’t take time from their jobs or find their estrangements, no matter the circumstances, too hard to bridge. For others, death is just too painful to watch.

My friend Fred was just shy of his 90th birthday. His wife had passed away a few weeks earlier who’s only living relative was a niece who just “didn’t get along” with Fred. I had many differences with Fred also, but understand we are to love our neighbor as our self and knew, I needed to be there to walk him home. To be his body guard on the way home. Take it to the bank. There is a heaven. There is a hell. There most certainly is God and we will ALL be held accountable for our actions and lack there of.

Ensure your last times with your loved ones are spent in prayer. Give them a the most precious going away gift money could never buy. Pray for them before they leave you, pray over them and never stop praying for them after they have left. Walk them as far home to our Lord as you can, not away from Him.

Most Merciful Jesus, lover of souls, I pray Thee, by the agony of Thy Most Sacred Heart and by the sorrows of Thine Immaculate Mother, to wash in Thy Most Precious Blood the sinners of the world who are now in their agony, and who will die today. Heart of Jesus, once in agony, have mercy on the dying. Amen.

St Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us. Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us all. I beg of Thee to put an end to all selfish desires this world has, and convert the hearts of those who try to mask selfish deeds. May my Lord allow them to see Your face O Lord in the dying and the elderly that they may come to understand how all life is a gift from the Father and respect all life all souls as your possessions; never forgetting it is God alone who decides when any life ends. Amen

Agony In The Garden


As I was praying the Rosary last night, I found myself deep in the Agony in the Garden with our Lord. If anyone has ever been in a car wreck, remember the split second before the crash how the normal reaction is to stiffen up and brace for the impact. Then imagine seeing the crash, years before it happens and not being able to change the events because it was God’s will for it all to come to pass, for the salvation of the souls involved. Then think of knowing about every car wreck years before and not being able to change a thing but only the souls heart in regards to the outcome. Souls of your children, family, friends and enemies. Now imagine the only way to save these souls from eternal harm, is your death at the proper time, when the Father calls you home. For me, it puts into perspective the amount of agony our Lord carried with him through out His life, to save us. Not what sin did to Him, by crucifying His body, which caused even more agony but the souls who were given the ability to see through His eyes, and continue to do so today, still not believing. Not to mention, He had to become sin, in order for God the Father, to turn His eyes away and allow our Lord to die on the cross! Our Lords ENTIRE life with us, and before coming to be man, revolved solely around God the Father. He is God the Father! Putting to the test His own creed! Not just His creed but all He IS! Much in the same way God killed his own creation (Animals) to make leather garments for Adam & Eve after they fell from grace, the pain I imagine can only be described as excruciating both mentally and physically.

Every droplet of blood that fell, every molecule contained in the droplets from our Beloved Savior, fell like acid dissolving the sin of men, disfiguring sin, making it known for what it is for all eternity.

As I pondered this while praying last night, I couldn’t move past the embrace by and strengthening of our Lord by the Angel sent from The Father. I could see the angel embracing our Lord and placing a kiss on His cheek. So lightly and loving the embrace. Mercy from above, then to return in a smaller amount from St. Veronica’s veil later on, to finish God’s divine plan of salvation. I could feel Our Lord trembling from the cold, warmed by the embrace sent from Abba. Easing the pain in advance of the carnage that would become His body. Abba Father, sending this loving embrace to His Son, before the kiss of death could be planted by Judas. Abba Father physically saying to the Son, I love you and I will see you soon.

O Jesus, my Savior and Redeemer, Son of the living God, behold, we kneel before Thee and offer Thee our reparation; we would make amends for all the blasphemies uttered against Thy holy name, for all the injuries done to Thee in the Blessed Sacrament, for all the irreverence shown toward Thine immaculate Virgin Mother, for all the calumnies and slanders spoken against Thy spouse, the holy Catholic and Roman Church. O Jesus, who hast said: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you”, we pray and beseech Thee for all our brethren who are in danger of sin; shield them from every temptation to fall away from the true faith; save those who are even now standing on the brink of the abyss; to all of them give light and knowledge of the truth, courage and strength for the conflict with evil, perseverance in faith and active charity! For this do we pray, most merciful Jesus, in Thy name, unto God the Father, with whom Thou livest and reignest in the unity of the Holy Spirit world without end. Amen
