An Obscure Sense of His Presence
An obscure sense of His Presence. Obscure because you see no one, but one thing for sure you know He is here. You feel Him by your side and the awareness of God results in adoration. You can sense His presence. That is what we call part of His Kingdom on earth. We must think God at all times. We must live God, and tell Him that we know He lives in us and us in Him. With this practice, He will make His self felt by your side. Think God, breathe God. Let every heartbeat be for Him. Walk with Him, talk with Him and you will feel this presence of God on earth. You will feel His Kingdom here on earth. Don't take my word for it, just simply try it. Not only once or twice, make it a habit each day and one day it will no longer be an effort. You will feel the Presence of God in your life and others will feel this Jesus in you. And they'll want Him and He is for everyone. God is real in all our lives.
Move over, move out of yourself. Make room for this Beloved Jesus made man who is God.
He must be the One at the very center of our lives. And He will be, if we let Him. You know the feeling of God's presence in one's life is the first step of mysticism. Every Christian is called to be a mystic. All Christians are called to submit their whole being to God, our Creator. After all, they belong to Him.
The presence of God in one's life is a step to holiness, a step to perfection. Although we are all called to work for perfection, self-denial is the step to start with. Bear in mind we all called for a direct union with God, and to a life of prayer. For some people who have a deep prayer life, mysticial moments come to them on the death bed.
Although they live their lives in the Divine Presence, we can become aware of the presence of God by silence. For in silence one can feel His love - not our love for God, but God's love for us. We should really call this mutual love between two lovers His love and mine.
This presence through love is the fruit of daily prayers. It is this pure love which creates a real relationship with our Creator. It is this true and pure love which leads to ecstasy. In many states or forms of ecstasy we don't lose consciousness, but we are lost in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are lost for time. Who cares? We are wrapped up in God.
The sense of His presence, this love affair between two lovers, you could call it Jesus and I, my Brother and I. This leads to a great union with our God. (I call it my Brother and I).

We Need To Be Connected To Jesus
We cannot not cook with a stove that is not connected. We cannot make toast in a toaster that is not connected. We cannot make the washing machine workd if it is not connected. We also need to be connected to receive the strength and power of Almighty God. We need electricity to switch on a light. Without it, we would use candles because we are not connected. In the spiritual life sometimes we have no electricity. Instead of being illuminated with the Spririt of the Living God, we use candles. We have no zeal because we are not connected to Jesus, who is the light of the whole world. We need to be aglow with the light of Jesus. We are called to be the light to others. But first, we must have the light of Jesus in our own life. There are many of us who only have an idea of who Jesus is because we have never had a personal encounter with Him. The light of Jesus is in the heart, not in what the intellect learns in books. You have to have a personal encounter with Jesus. As long as we haven't had this personal encounter with Jesus, who is alive in our hearts, we will stay at the level of the intellect.
A Christian who calls on the Spirit of the Living God daily for an infilling of His Spirit will know that Jesus is alive, that yes, He had kept His promises. "I must go so that the Paraclete will come to you, and when He comes He will guide you, teach you and console you." (John 16:7-16)
I would like to take a little time to share about Our Beloved Jesus in my own life. Many of you have already heard about the 33 years of my sickness up until the time that Our Beloved Jesus healed me, that was my personal
encounter. I want to share that in my life Jesus was always there, but while I was sick and the years before my healing I knew Jesus in a different way. Since my healing, I know Jesus lives today in all of us. The more we talk to Him and invite Him in every area of our lives, the more you can proclaim the good work of Jesus. The love of Jesus is always with us. Jesus is the same today as He was 2,000 years ago.
In my life I have seen the power of the Holy Spirit working with His people. These are good years for the church. The Spirit of the Living God is shaking and renewing His church. Praise God. I have seen with my own eyes the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk. I have seen some walking in darkness returned to the light after 25 & 40 years. The Spirit of the Living God is revealing himself to His people and this can be connected to the story of Jesus in the Gospel healing His people, as it is written in Luke 7:22. Today we need to see the healing power of God.
There was a man in October 1992 at the Little House of Prayer who was paralyzed on the left side from a stroke. He had been that way for 3½ years. He was healed instantly by the power and strength of the Living God who lives among us today.
A little girl in my town had a blood condidtion. The great grandmother came with a picture of her. This little girl was going to die. She was healed by the Spirit of the Living God. A woman from Wells, Maine had an open ulcer in her leg and came here with a priest. It was open to the bone. She was healed. At another healing service seven people regained their hearing, some in one ear, some in both of their ears. A man from Canada, at a healing service up north, was healed of phlebitis of both legs. They wanted to cut off one of his legs. He had dark blue lumps all over his legs. He was healed. I felt the lumps dissolve under my hands through the power of the Living God. A yound man regained 90% of his eyesight at a Healing Service at the Little House of Prayer. He had come here with a priest who was his Spiritual Director. A young woman of 23 was hit by a car. She had not walked for 5 years; she walked instantly. A priest was healed of colon cancer. A woman 7½ years in a wheel chair could not talk or walk; she is talking now and walking.
I've seen, "Yes, I've seen the power of the Living God amongst us healing His people in body, mind and in soul." I've seen couples married 11, 13, 14 years who were without children. They wanted children and the did get pregnant. Many, many things the Spirit of the Living God has shown to me. I' not bragging, I'm boasting in the Lord as it is written in 1 Corinithians 1:31: "Whoever boasts, should boast in the Lord." I was afraid to talk about what I have seen, and that's another lesson the Spirit of God had to show his slow learning daughter. I am a witness that God loves His people. I am a witness that God is a merciful God. I am a witness that God will work with whom He chooses. My eyes have seen the merciful love of God. One thing I've learned is that we are clay vessels and we will remain clay vessels. We have no power, but we have to be there in perserverance and the Spirit of the Living God will do the rest. In a healing service or any assembly or breakfast service, it matters not the numbers, whether there is 20, 1,000 or 2,500. Whoever the Spirit of God brings, they are all children of God.
The Spirit gave me a song which many of you have heard:
"I Am A Child Of God"
I am a child of God, I am a child of God.
I live in His Love, I am a child of God.
1. Deep down in my heart, I have moved aside.
I made room for Him, who has paid the price.
2. He has called me by name, And I heard His call.
I recognized His gift, For I am a child of God.
3. His call is irrevocable, I must follow Him.
And bring others to His Love, So they can pass it on.
4. A call to discipleship, is to spread the good news.
That is given to us, in the Word of God.

In Your Trials
When your heart is hurting, come to Me in your trials and troubles. I am walways at your side, asking you to believe in Me. Put your trust in Me, in My Love for you. Let no self pity dwell in your heart. My Child, it is in your trials that you are being purified, have no fear. Your trials can be used as a prayer, when offered to Me. Place them in My hands at the foot of the Cross.
My Child, live this life on earth one day at a time, live each day as if it were your last. Why waste your energy on tomorrow, when it many not even be yours? Look at the birds in the sky. They do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are not your more important then they? Which of you, by worrying, can add a moment to your life span? (Matthew 6:26-27)
On the way to Calvary, I did not fear. I had received in prayer the strength of My Father. You can do the same. Ask your Heavenly Father to assist you in all your trials.
"My Child, nothing can happen to you that we cannot face together, you and I." In your trials, do not let your imagination work overtime. When you live on your feelings, you can become confused and the evil one will control you by your feelings. When you are in fear and confusion sets in, call on the power of The Holy Spirit to come to your help. The Spirit of God is not a Spirit of confusion. You will be stronger in your faith, if you let yourself be guided by the power of the Holy Spirit.
"Be obedient, listen to My Voice in your trials, which comes to you through the power of The Holy Spirit. You will know the Voice of The Holy Spirit, it is the voice of peace, not of confusion. Follow My Words, keep your eyes on Me at all times. Do not let the world blind you and rob you of My Kingdom with it's empty promises. The ways of the world will mislead you.
Fear not My Child, I am walking at your side. I am near you at al times, keep your eyes on Me. Place your hand in Mine and I will give you courage to walk through the glare of your enemies, those who cause you trials. Remember one thing, they have done it to Me. Wirh Me, you are walking towards eternal life. Walk bravely, stand on My words, for I am with you. I in you, and you in Me, says The Lord Your God. Walk bravely and follow My Will in all things."

Dying To Oneself There is much strength by coming in front of the Blessed Sacrament ad asking Jesus for courage. Death to our humanity comes in many forms.
Death comes in giving up an argument even if we are right, to preserve peace, His peace.
Death comes in being nice to our opponent, especially when we know what has been said or done against us.
Death comes in any kind of giving up for the good of others and for the glory of the Father.
It is at these times that we need prayer most of all. When we practice the death of oneself, there is each time a spiritual resurrection, and giving glory to the Father. To do this, we need the grace that comes especially from Jesus' courage.
The grace of Jesus Christ can turn us away from the precipice of despairing thought and allow us to walk straight through the glare of other's hatred. Knowing if we say nothing for the glory of the Father, the Father will give us His love. We are working for the building up of His Kingdom.
When we let Jesus take our hand, together we walk back straight through the midst of our enemies.
Let His courage be passed on to us. Feel the warmth of it coming from His Hand. Feel the weight of our shoulders lighten. Feel the spring in our steps. We must rely more and more on Him. It is called transferring our problems into the hand of the Lord; walking hand in hand with Him until we are comforted and strong again.
In front of the Blessed Sacrament, we find the fountain of courage to drink of the daily cup that is before us each day.
My command to you is this, Love your enemies, pray for them. Also pray for those who persecute you. (Matthew 5:44-45).
A Smile Is Love
Be one with Me. Do not create waves. Instead, be loved, and I will help you move more than you ever thoght it possible in your human life.
Wear a smile and down in your own heart you will feel the difference. Did you know just by wearing a smile, it can create a new you? A smile is love and will touch people's souls without a word. It is called the touch of silence.
Yes, wear a smile. Be My smile to others, and know that I will help you always. Remember always to be one with Me in your heart =, mind and soul. Do not bge a third tongue. Do not create waves. Put a bolt on your mouth and be silent. Just wear a smile, a simpe smile, My smile.
Let Us Pray For Our Priests
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
