God Has A Plan For Us

 Flames of Fire.jpg (38001 bytes)

  God has a provisional plan for the direction and decisions in our lives.  But, how can we know what He wants us to do?  He wants us to take "Prime Time" for Him.

Take time for Him who loves you so much He died for you, nailed to a Cross.  That is immense love.  Quiet down the voice of emotion and listen to the voice that speaks in your heart, not in the intellect, but in the heart.

The Voice of the Beloved speaks.  We must yield our hearts to Him completely, also our minds.  If not, then we live without learning how to submit the use of our minds to the Lord.  Many Christians seem to be simply not understanding that the Holy Spirit can work in our hearts, and He does.  We must give Him full control of our hearts.

For some reason, if we think that the only way the Holy Spirit guides us is through prophesies and visions, we will miss much of His guidance.  The Lord is always teaching us.  As St. Paul says, we are maturing in Christ.  The Lord, however, cannot teach us if we refuse to be 100% His in the heart.  We have to cooperate with Him.  Pauls tells us in (Ephesians 4:22-24) "that you should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God's way in righteousness and holiness of truth."
Many are still in doubt that day is day and night is night, so should you believe that the Word of God is the truth and nothing but the truth.  God wants us to give Him our hearts, for when the heart is renewed, conversion and prayer life will take place.

As you believe that day is day and night is night, so should you believe that the Word og God is the truth and nothing but the truth.  God wants us to give Him our hearts, for when the heart is renewed, conversion and prayer life will take place.

We must listen to God.  We all have heard more from the Lord than we have yet been able to absorb or understand.  Why?  Becaause we don't pay attention to what He tells us.  The Lord Jesus Christ speaks to us a great deal.  More than we listen.  He speaks to us in Holy Communion which brings the most perfect union with Jesus that is possible in life.  He speaks to us in Blood and Flesh, which we come in contact with in our daily lives in our Brothers and Sisters.  He speaks to us in Scripture, also through experiences in life.

He speaks directly in our hearts, if we take the time to listem.  We can trust God, for trust is oneness with God.  Do you trust God to the point of living your life on earth doing His Will?  Trusting someone is to believe in that person.  Do you believe enough to find the real strength you need in the Eucharist?

Do you believe enough to offer the rhythm of your heart beats to God?  This may seem like nothing to you, but the heart is your entire life for if the heart stops, life on earth stops.  Yes, if you trust God, you'll place your heart in His Hands and you will offer each beating of your heart in unity with His.  Yes, we can trust God and know with our hearts that He will work things out for us, even when we do not seem to know what He wants of us.  God has a provident plan for our lives.

Be very attentive to the voice that speaks in your heart.  Your life will become more and more easier because you will have moved aside and given Him your heart 100%.  You will know without a doubt, "My God Loves Me."  You will hear hear His voice say, "I Love You."  The more we serve Him by giving Him the reign of our hearts, the more we love Him.  At this point we will be giving our Brothers and Sisters "His Love", not ours, which is only human love.   His Love is Eternal.

He is the Pearl of our life.  Once we discover this in our own lives, we will discover unity with Him.  We then realize Our Baptism which has welded us to Him.   We are His Cells, His Members, isn't it great?

Conversion is not easy, it is an everyday job.  As St. Paul says, we are maturing in Christ.  If we are Cells, Members of a body, then we should do all we can for the person we are a member of.  Would it not be foolish for a member (hand or leg) to try to cut itelf away from the Body?  That Member would in effect, be throwing itself away, destructing itself.  How come some people are doing just that?  Pulling away from the Church which is the Bride of Jesus?  We are the Body, He is the Head.  

Peace Be With You

Ask For The Holy Spirit


Ask for the release of the Holy Spirit every day.  Jesus Christ made it clear when He spoke to His disciples after His resurrection that they were to receive the full promise of the Father, the full power of the Holy Spirit.  This also applies to us every bit as much as it did to the disciples.  But, we must not forget to ask the Father every day to release His Holy Spirit in us.

Jesus said to us before He left us to ascend to the Father, Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the world.  (Matthew 28:30)

How is He with us?  Through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Receive the Holy Spirit daily by asking to become on fire with the Holy Spirit in your lives.  Yes, be on fire.  Be liberated in the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Psalm 104:30)  Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.   Enkindle in us the fire of Divine Love.  Send forth Your Spirit and we shall be recreated.

When Christians pray that prayer, we are asking for Jesus to give us the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.  We should make it a "Prayer of the Day" in our lives.   We must become on fire with the Holy Spirit, just as the Disciples were on the first Pentecost.

Wake up and meet the third person of Jesus Christ in a personal relationship in your life and be on fire with the Holy Spirit.  This is the time of times.  The time to be awake and to stand up and be counted.  Do not be ashamed of your faith for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Peace Be With You

Reverence To Our God

 Body Blood of Christ.jpg (21627 bytes)

 
Many of us today are not reverent when passing in front of the Blessed Sacrament.  Many just nod their heads.  What is wrong with everyone's knees?  Is He not worth the bending of the knee?  Is He not Our God, the same God who used reverence and tenderness in the washing of the feet of His disciples?

It is a scene powerful enough that the Church, as it's used in the Holy Thursday liturgy, testifies that Jesus did indeed wash the feet of His disciples, which also symbolizes Christ's servanthood to us.

Can we not be servant enough, to be reverent enough, to bend our knees in front of His Holy Presence in the Blessed Sacrament?  A bending of the head is kind of watering down the reverence we should give to such a great God.  (Philippians 2:10)


Sinful man cannot dare to face God, the all Holy.  Who can stand in the presence of such a great God?  The one with a sorrowful heart can.

Go to confession.  Get rid of the uncleanliness, pray to be more reverent in front of the Blessed Sacrament.  Don't bend the knee just halfway as you pass by, bend the knee all the way.  Take time to say, "Jesus, I know that you are really present in the Tabernacle, and I love you, My Lord and Savior."  Get in this habit and you will feel Jesus' presence before you.  Because of our American way of life, success stressed on self sufficiency, has often spilled over into our spiritual behavior.   With success, many think they are doing it on their own, and they go to Mass just to fulfill what they perceive is their duty.  This is not Christianity.  With success, sometimes it spills over in our spiritual striving for God and we forget that success comes in because of God's given Grace to us.  When we think success is self-sufficiency, then we water down what we need most in our life, the spiritual side of life.  We water down the Sacraments.  We receive Holy Communion because we feel we have to.  It's like receiving a cookie.  No "Thank you, Jesus, for watching over me, my family."  No "Jesus, I adore you, Jesus I love you."  There is no need of that, we think, because success is there and we are self sufficient.  How sad it is, to water down our reverence for the Holy Eucharist, which is Jesus coming to us personally.  His willingness to sacrifice for us, unto the Cross of Calvary.  He left us His Spouse, the Church.  A memorial of His Death and Resurrection.

When at Mass, we celebrate all of this.  Let us be there in mind, heart and soul, with reverence to such a great God.  This earthly life will pass us by, success will pass us by.  But in the end, all that will remain will be our Beloved Jesus with His everlasting Love. 

Peace Be With You

Prayer to the Ascension of Jesus


Oh Glorious Ascension of Jesus, You are our ascension.  With You, we participate in united communion of the Father to His Beloved Son Jesus in the Holy Spirit.  With You, I am where you are hidden in God.  Keep me there forever always.  Give me a thirst for the Holy, for the souls.  Amen.

Say 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's 1 Glory Be, etc. for Peace on Earth, and the savings of souls.

 


 

Food For Thought


God speaks to us much more often then we take time to listen.  Let us take the time to listen to the voice that speaks in our hearts. 

 


 

Please Help Us, If You Can


As you all know everyone is having a hard time financially.  Well, so are we.   There are not enough donations coming in to cover expenses.  The little reserves we have are drying up fast.

A major expense in 2022 will be the repaving of our paring lot and the road just above it.   We are receiving donations for repairs and plan to prioritize the section of road that goes down the hill by the Little House of Prayer.  We have no estimates at this time as to the cost of repairs but have been advised that we may wish to wait on paving as anything that is related to the cost of oil has greatly increased the price.  Labor costs have recently increased as well.  The Board of Directors will review this in the coming months and will keep you advised of or decision.

We are gladly accepting donations and wish to thank those who have already donated.   Thank you for your generosity, it is greatly appreciated.

If you receive our "paper" bulletin, please send in your Bulletin dues - $10 per year.  These dues would help us greatly in continuing to produce these bulletins.   If you would like to make a greater donation to us, it is tax deductible and it too would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

 


 

Let Us Pray For Our Priests


Sister Faustina.jpg (47621 bytes)

O my Jesus, I beg you on behalf of the whole Church; Grant it love and the light of Your Spirit, and give power to the words of priests so that hardened hearts might be brought to repentance and return to You, O Lord.   Lord, give us holy priests; You yourself maintain them in holiness.  O Divine and Great High Priest, may the power of Your mercy accompany them everywhere and protect them from the devil's traps and snares which are continually being set for the souls of priests.  May the power of Your mercy, O Lord, shatter and bring to naught all that might tarnish the sanctity of priests, for You can do all things.  Amen
