Until God ordains otherwise, a man ought to bear patiently whatever he cannot correct in himself and in others. Imitation of Christ by John Kempis

PRAYER

Saint Augustine
“If you wish to rise begin decending.”
Surrender yourself, to pray, breath all the world out and breath in the Breath of Jesus.
When you pray to me, I listen and all of heaven listens. God who created you hangs on every word. The Saints begin to pray also. You are not alone in your prayer. Perfect love casts our all fear. Enjoy the freedom of sharing all your desires and thoughts without condemnation.

Why I write prayers

For quite sometime I have noticed that I should be more detailed in my prayer so I began to write out my prayers. As I am getting older I do not want to forget the details. The names of those who ask me to pray. When I feel things are going to go wrong I pray ahead of time to prevent it from happening.
Good example Hurricaine last summer did not hit Tampa and it looked like a terrible storm that would wipe the whole west coast off the map. It just desolved!!!

Our prayers

Our prayers creat a beautiful work of life changing love in others. It is a healing that cannot be explained. Prayer is a sacrifice that gives us super natural gifts and others perfect gifts. The Holy Spirit flows from us to God and back to those we pray for causing love to overflow. The prayer draws the Angels to us. St Teresa said “it is great that God lets us borrow His own love.” All of this helps us to become more loving. We win and the world is a better place to live.

Alfred Loyd Teanyson
“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.

This prayer was created 8 months before my daughter had her thyroid removed and I was so glad that the Holy Spirit ptomted me to write it and pray everyday. Even though she had this operation, it would have not been found without a small accident that the X-ray revealed nodules on her thyroid. After waiting they determined that the nodules had grown too much and they removed the thyroid. It could have turned into cancer.

HEALING PRAYER

Holy Trinity, I am grateful for your guidance and Loving Hope for the whole world to be completely healed.
God thank you for giving us your Son Jesus to take away our sins with such pure forgiveness.
Jesus, thank you for setting us free.  Thank you Jesus for your many Graces that restores and heals our Soul.

Loving Father, touch me now with your healing touch. Send your healing angels to me.  I know that your will is for me to be completely healed body, mind, soul and Spirit.  Pour your blood Jesus over my whole body, over my Head to renew my mind, over my eyes that I may see only you, over my ears to hear your words only.  Over my mouth that only kindness and Your words will come out of my mouth, Over my entire body even to the souls of my feet that I may bring only good news to this broken world.
In the name of Jesus I cast out anything that you did not put in me.  Root out all unhealthy and abnormal cells and multiply my healthy cells.  Destroy all tumors, growths and cancers.  Pour your blood through my veins to open and heal my whole body. Heal my thyroid and metabolism.  Help me to eat correctly and not harm my stomach and bowels. Renew my heart with healing and holiness.  Cleanse my liver, gallbladder and pancreas and heal all the damaged areas. Strengthen and restore my bones, remove all plaque and arthritis.  Build and heal my muscles to better run the race for your glory.  Remove all infection and cleanse all inflammation by your precious blood.  Strengthen and straighten my spine and nerves to work perfectly.  Renew my mind and cure any mental illness.  Restore what sin and unforgiveness has caused illness in my body, mind, soul and spirit. Replenish my strength with your Joy.
Touch my mind and emotions even in the darkest places that I have forgotten and fill me with your light. Show me all that I need to repent of and give me the courage to make a good confession. Saturate me with your love and fill me with your Holy Spirit to cleanse my mind body and soul to purify me for your work, so that I may be successful in all your works.
I ask all this in you’re precious name Jesus.

A personal relationship keeps in touch.  Prayer is a personal relationship with the true and living God…. “Prayer is raising of ones mind and heart to God or requesting of good things from God”  Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2558-2559

I have made many friends through praying for them and them praying for me.  It never fails if I am praying for someone that they call me.  I conclude from this that prayer unites us with God and each other.  In the book “The friendship project” through friendship they became prayer partners while running and many other times in thier time together.  So it says that we do not have to wait for the appropriate time that we can do it in our daily chores.

While praying and listening in the Adoration Chapel I heard this message.

FEBRUARY 23RD 2018

Lent

89FBAB58-057E-4672-A2F4-185DF7B272DA

Pope Francis

Get rid of the lazy addiction to evil – “[Lent] is a ‘powerful’ season, a turning point that can foster change and conversion in each of us. We all need to improve, to change for the better. Lent helps us and thus we leave behind old habits and the lazy addiction to the evil that deceives and ensnares us.” – General Audience, March 5, 2014

Do something that hurts – “Lent is a fitting time for self-denial; we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty. Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance. I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.” – Lenten Message, 2014

Don’t remain indifferent – “Indifference to our neighbor and to God also represents a real temptation for us Christians. Each year during Lent we need to hear once more the voice of the prophets who cry out and trouble our conscience. God is not indifferent to our world; he so loves it that he gave his Son for our salvation.” –Lenten Message, 2015

Pray: Make our hearts like yours! – “During this Lent, then, brothers and sisters, let us all ask the Lord: ‘Fac cor nostrum secundum cor tuum’: Make our hearts like yours (Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus). In this way we will receive a heart which is firm and merciful, attentive and generous, a heart which is not closed, indifferent or prey to the globalization of indifference.” – Lenten Message, 2015

Take part in the sacraments – “Lent is a favorable time for letting Christ serve us so that we in turn may become more like him. This happens whenever we hear the word of God and receive the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. There we become what we receive: the Body of Christ.” – Lenten Message, 2015

Prayer – “In the face of so many wounds that hurt us and could harden our hearts, we are called to dive into the sea of prayer, which is the sea of God’s boundless love, to taste his tenderness. Lent is a time of prayer, of more intense prayer, more prolonged, more assiduous, more able to take on the needs of the brethren; intercessory prayer, to intercede before God for the many situations of poverty and suffering.” – Homily, March 5, 2014

Fasting – “We must be careful not to practice a formal fast, or one which in truth ‘satisfies’ us because it makes us feel good about ourselves. Fasting makes sense if it questions our security, and if it also leads to some benefit for others, if it helps us to cultivate the style of the Good Samaritan, who bends down to his brother in need and takes care of him.” – Homily, March 5, 2014

Almsgiving – “Today gratuitousness is often not part of daily life where everything is bought and sold. Everything is calculated and measured. Almsgiving helps us to experience giving freely, which leads to freedom from the obsession of possessing, from the fear of losing what we have, from the sadness of one who does not wish to share his wealth with others.” – Homily, March 5, 2014

Help the Poor – “In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face; by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ. Our efforts are also directed to ending violations of human dignity, discrimination and abuse in the world, for these are so often the cause of destitution. When power, luxury and money become idols, they take priority over the need for a fair distribution of wealth. Our consciences thus need to be converted to justice, equality, simplicity and sharing.” – Lenten Message, 2014

Evangelize – “The Lord asks us to be joyous heralds of this message of mercy and hope! It is thrilling to experience the joy of spreading this good news, sharing the treasure entrusted to us, consoling broken hearts and offering hope to our brothers and sisters experiencing darkness.” – Lenten Message, 2014

FATHER DO YOU KNOW?

healing_scripture

The poem below was written by me and I love to sign it J.C. When the Holy Spirit helps me write my deepest thoughts completely .  I wrote this in 5 minutes , while riding in a car after being persecuted by Christian Leaders for a long time.  Jesus said Father forgive them they for they know not what they do.  I however Have no problem forgiving but I do not know how to let go of the hurt and emotions.  This poem healed me completely while writing it, because it helped me express how I feel, which was so hard for me to verbalize.  It released me from all my hurt of not being able to express my feelings to those who do not care about me.  I do not understand the attitude of leaders, that we are disposable, even though we do our best for them.  It is hard when you see others favored and you are not understood.  This poem inspired me to write the Blog Wounded In Our Midst because I know that I am not alone.

 

FATHER DID YOU KNOW?

Please accept me
Hear my plea

Be sensitive and realize how I have been abused
By your being silent my justice was refused

Give me the benefit of the doubt
Don’t call me out

If I am not your favorite one
Try hard not to shun

Don’t listen to gossip that is negative
Remember it is a lie and Pray to be positive

Care about ALL those in the pews
Even if they do not share your views

Don’t Judge me when I tell you all
Remember your judgmental attitude can cause me to fall

Think about what you say to all
Never forget we trusted you because of your call

When you fear
Always remember the devil is near

If you are really smart
Do not use it to tear me apart

If you forget your call
My unsaved family will see it all

When you are tired, take a rest
Don’t allow satan to put you to the test

Your pride will take you down
Repent and you will receive your crown

If you say mean things in jest
It will take us longer to be our best

If you think this is your profession
Go straight to confession

If you love and encourage us to be our best
Jesus is very able to do the rest

Most important give us the benefit of the doubt
Then many will come back to praise and shout

Don’t believe all the polls and lose faith, it’s a lie
The truth is the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit is what you should try

Many are lost because of the lie. Your call is to bring them back home
It is time to be obedient and listen to the Pope in Rome

Be a Godly man and forget worldly things
All you need is what the Holy Spirit brings

We do not need a king to lord it over us and teach
All we need is a simple man who we can always reach

God is not impressed with your knowledge and your speech
What He wants is the message of His love for us that you preach

After all is said and done and if nothing amounts
The love of Jesus that you shared is all that counts

You are not a one man show
If God does not give you help then let it go.

If you are really grateful for our help let us know
Being taken for granted is a terrible crushing blow

You are loved by so many in so many ways
Stop looking and searching to always get away

Know that there is a battle to be won
You and God will lead us to victory, with his only Son

Don’t be tempted by womanly wiles
Mary will protect you if you spend time with her for a while

In conclusion know that everything you do is forgiven
Because Jesus Christ your savior has risen!  J.C.

Visitors Wounded at Church

image
How many times have you been to new church gatherings and ignored? Not one person talked to you. Perhaps this occurred on more than one occasion. There is no place for this rudeness in a Christian church.
So let’s discuss some of the situations that many encounter before deciding not to return to the church. When you come for the first time to a service and everyone there knows the procedure except for you, like special books that are up front that you use, and no one informs you it will be needed. It is humiliating to stand there with no book, while all are reading together.
When an entrance is changed and you do not know where to go, you feel excluded. Especially if someone saw you go in the wrong entrance and did not tell you.
They announce that coffee and donuts are in the hall and you go thinking that this is an opportunity to meet everyone, and no one talks to you. They stay in their little clicks and ignore everyone else. If you strike up a conversation and they give you a sarcastic comment and then ignore you. You think that at coffee and donuts you will be able to meet the Religious leader and they are not there to greet you.
There is no excuse for apathy and selfishness for Christian leaders and shepherds.
Even worse, you are ignored and you still volunteer anyway, and someone else takes credit for your work.
Where is the gratitude, when you volunteer many hours of your time with no thank you. Better yet the message is to be humble and don’t take any of my time.
Some of these practices have been adopted and repeated for so long it has become the norm. The rules of obedience have been used to persecute for far too long. The rules of the Pharisee’s put Jesus on the cross. The Pharisee’s had their favorites and all others were judged and criticized. Religious leaders should not have favorites because it hurts the Body of Christ.
Every situation that causes exclusion hurts the Body of Christ. All are watching Christians and we are not giving them a good example of what the scripture teaches. It is so important to listen to what a new person is saying and not show them that you know more than them. Just because you were there first does not give you the right to lord it over newcomers. It causes them to feel like they are trying out for a country club and have to be approved. In this world where everyone has to spend so much time surviving , it is easier to move on and not return to church.
The church is supposed to be a place that elevates you from the world to a place of unconditional love. A place where you can go and learn about Jesus through the actions of loving Christians, and you are inspired to follow their good example. A healing place that you that builds you up, and has patience when you are in need. When you receive a message that you are taking up too much time or not important enough, it hurts. Who wants to be treated that way in the world no less in a place of God. When it happens in church it sends a message that you are somehow inferior and that you are not welcome. Either way it is a good part of why numbers are dwindling. Christian leaders need to repent and get rid of fear!

The solution is really simple. Use the Bulletin to remind everyone on appropriate ways to welcome and embrace newcomers. Use scripture;

“For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?” Matthew 5:46-48

“When the crowds learned it, they followed him, and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and cured those who had need of healing.” Luke 9:11

“When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them.” Acts 15:4

“When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them.” Acts 15:4

“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7

These scriptures shows a Christian community without fear but showing perfect love. We as a church need. to take the advice of scripture an live it everyday to the best of our ability with God’s help. We need reminding not to love just our friends but everyone, it says that Jesus welcomed and then healed and we should do the same, the church should declare all that God has done for them and do it all for Gods Glory. We should go out into the world and bring them back to the church. The beginning church had signs and wonders that brought everyone to them. We need to do the same. Not be afraid of the Holy Spirit but open to it.

If you do not make the people feel at home in the church they will not make it their home.

imageHow grateful are you? If you receive a gift, do you take it for granted or do you say thank you. If someone is nice to you, does it give you a reason to take advantage of them? Why is it that so many complain, even when they are prosperous? How many want bigger, better, or best, and nothing is enough.
I have pondered the generosity of God and his Mercy. How, over and over, God says yes to our prayers. My observance is those who have their prayers answered usually are not grateful. When a miracle occurs they don’t even notice that a miracle took place, because it was not how they would have done it. Sometimes they think God owed them because of their great accomplishments. Why?
We have had such religious freedom in the U.S., which we are slowly losing because of the loss of moral integrity. Christians take our freedom of religion for granted. We have let evil groups spread the gospel of occultism. Our president says we are no longer a Christian nation and there is no outcry. Where is the gratitude for our service men who die for our abundance and freedoms .
No one likes to be taken for granted. Over and over again God overlooks our ignoring of all he does for us. God in his mercy and love still keeps forgiving us. What do we do, ignore him and blame Him for all the evil that occurs in our lives. It amazes me the unconditional love of God, who sacrificed his only son to save us even though we ignore and refuse to accept His love. What do we choose, not Gods love but personal gain and evil ,which will destroy us. All God wants is the best for us, and all we do is look for excuses to ignore Him.
As we contemplate our actions, lets ask ourselves, how much do we appreciate our parents love and sacrifice. They did the best they could to raise us with what they were given by God. No one is perfect and our parents made mistakes. We overlook the good and only remember the bad. Everyone comes with pain and make mistakes in life, even us.
We also, in our arrogance, criticize our children and ignore all the good they do and how they want to please us. It seems that we take lots for granted and are grateful for little. It is easy to overlook all the good things that have come our way. When have you said boy, I am so glad that I can see, smell, taste, walk or any other simple pleasure in your life.
Everything we have comes from God. If something happens that makes us unhappy we blame God. We quit praying ( if we ever started praying ) and we say now it’s time to do as we please. The problem is when things do go right and life is peachy we think it is of our own doing and forget God all together. Forgiveness is our greatest protection from becoming cold and heartless. Unforgiveness is what closes us to the love of God and also closes us from everyone else who matters. Without God we are ungrateful. We think everything is owed to us and we expect comfort and luxury. This opens us up to greed, selfishness, lust, perversion,lawlessness and all the other demons that make this world terrible. Striving to love unconditionally is the only thing that will heal our world today. We should be merciful to all those who are unkind and ungrateful for our kindness.
Our spouses are a wealth of blessings and yet when do we say thank you for their many kindnesses? Divorce happens when we do not appreciate each other and do not live by God’s law. When we trust God we are protected, but when we trust ourselves and go our own way we set ourselves up for attacks from Satan. When we turn to God and ask forgiveness He gives it right then and we are right back under His protection. It is that simple. How can we miss how wonderful God’s mercy is our lives. It is so simple.
Be grateful for everything and rejoice for Gods unconditional love. God is waiting for us to come to Him, praising Him for all that we have, even the bad. The bad makes us stronger to help others going through the same things in their life. All the good and bad that happens to us is for our good and should not to drag us down. Praise God for all things and pray for a grateful heart and your attitude will reflect God’s love.

I am close to you always.  Where are you while I wait to hear from you?  It is hard for me to watch all the evil in the world, even after 2016 years.  Why is it so hard for you to trust me?  So many have left me because no one tells them about my love.  My shepherds are putting their faith in everything ,but me because of fear.  I am waiting and hoping that someone will ask me for help.  So many are building themselves up and not me.    I am who they will follow, My people know my voice and they follow me.

healing_scripture

Please come to me in prayer and I will lead you.  Many have fallen under the spell of lust, perversion, greed and lawlessness.  It is hard for me to reach them without your help.  I am waiting and praying for eyes to be opened and ears to hear.  My heart is pouring out love and there is no where for it to go.  All your hearts are hardened and your ears are closed because of unforgiveness.  Will you repent and come to me because of my love for you.  There is nothing that you could do that I cannot forgive and forget.  My love for you is so intense that I yearn for you to be with me.  Please use some time to come and sit with me in prayer.  I will help you and fill you with peace, hope, love and joy.   When you grieve I grieve, your pain is my pain, my love for you is always and forever.  I made you and enjoy my creation of you.  Do not believe the lies of this world about me.  I am here for you and have always been there for you.  My ways are not your ways.  I love need and miss you when you are not with me.  Come to me and I will give you an abundance of joy in the midst of your sorrows.
