“Return to your first Love”
“Year of Repentance” Bishop Zubik will inaugurate the year Sunday, Sept. 23, and will lead a related prayer that afternoon.”
We all have reason to join and repent.
While everyone stands, sits, kneels, shouts, boycotts, fights with this man or that, or this group or that one….
We must never forget what we have been called to be first…
“For through the law I died to the law, that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.”
According to the “media” there is a “civil war” inside the Catholic Church over “doctrine”….
Has it dawned on anyone that there really isn’t? Can the left index finger declare war against the right index finer on the same “Body”? The only “war” that exists, is between souls out of communion with our Lord, and our Lord. “Enter through the narrow gate.” comes to heart and mind.
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.” – John 14:23

Thank you Our Lady of Fatima for prayers answered.
In light of all the political nonsense we have been dealing with, on the 99th year since the miracle of the sun, with my entire heart, I thank our beautiful Mother, and pray for the conversion of the entire world.
In a recent story:
Wake up –
She can’t. First off, Religious Freedom first and foremost comes from God. Not the government of the USA, nor any government. We all have the GOD given freedom to worship and live the faith. The problem is, many have placed the state & society above God and live in the illusion as if the state guarantees your right to worship.
A priest facebook friend recently posted: “Just because you don’t pay attention to politics, it doesn’t mean politics won’t pay attention to you.”
The fact is, the government infiltrated by the culture of death, has ROBBED you of that right to pray & worship where and when you desire along with doing what is right and just. For a Catholic today to live what they profess each and every week at Holy Mass, (What We Believe) in today’s world, takes that soul straight into the realm of persecution for living the Truth in every day life. Even in our own homes. Be convicted in the faith and not watered down.
BE NOT AFRAID – Live it! What good is to to profess and not live? BE NOT AFRAID. Marvelous and Miraculous things take shape when you live what we profess, through all society. Thus we answer our Lord when He called that how He had wished that the entire world was a blaze.
Second: If anything she is saying in this article has screamed to me is this, it is a call from our Lord, saying get right with Me and LIVE the faith, love God above all else and your neighbor as yourself, in the coming persecutions. Now is the time to repent. Turn back to Him. We can never be robbed of the right to worship our Lord. We may be beaten for our faith, imprisoned and persecuted, but they can never take away anything, that our Lord Himself has given to us.
If that false notion of separation of Church and State creep into your thoughts, remember as a Catholic that God comes first! I highly suggest reading:
