The Holy Bible

Many people have different opinions whether the Bible holds all truths that ever will be known. The Bible is incredibly powerful because it is the Word of God, but does it hold every truth about God and heaven? I personally believe because God is infinite the Bible can only speak a little of all that God is and does. Just think about His infinite love, creativity, power and might, you would need an infinite amount of books to describe God and all that He does. So I don’t go along with God doesn’t do anything new. After all we are supposed to be doing greater works than Jesus soon. The wonderful thing though about the Bible it does describe how to discern what comes from God and what doesn’t. ‘By the fruits you will know them.’ If it leads your soul and spirit into true pure love of God and you are covered with humility that to me comes from God. Satan can be sneaky so you do have to really pray about it and really have a close look at what is going on in your heart. Sometimes we can be easily deceived not always because we are proud, but we take things at face value. We can be naïve thinking every spirit that acts friendly must be friendly, much like being conned by people who are really wolves in sheep’s clothing.

 

A Crusade Prayer Said before the Rosary

isPLLWHJ3SO Queen of the Holy Rosary, thou didst deign to come to Fatima to reveal to the three shepherd children the treasures of Grace hidden in the Rosary. Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, in order that by meditating on the Mysteries of our Redemption, which are recalled in it. I may be enriched by its fruits and obtain peace in the world, the conversion of sinners and of Russia, and the Graces, which I ask of thee in this Rosary. (Here mention your request).

I ask this for the greater glory of God, for thine own honour, and for the good of souls, especially for my own.

The Crusade of Prayer

I got this prayer from a book called ‘The Crusade of Prayer’. Maria Divine Mercy was given this prayer by Mary and Jesus and so are all the other prayers in the book.

It took three years after my conversion to the Catholic Faith before I had the courage, to discipline myself to say the rosary regularly. And even then it was off and on. I had a very guilty conscious over it, but still couldn’t bring myself around to saying it every day. I know there are others in a similar boat to me. This prayer is ideal for you, because after I said it a number of times I now have a love of the Rosary like never before. I say the Scriptural Rosary. And I know Jesus really loves the Scriptural Rosary, because once while saying it He appeared with great happiness over me saying it. I found the Scriptural Rosary over the internet after a great deal of searching. I like the simple version the best. I can’t say it every day, but I hate it when I can’t. The Crusade Prayers have a special blessing on them from God. And they are mostly prayers for the end days and preparing us for the second coming of Jesus. I believe you can get this book on the internet.

The Body of Christ

is(10)When we reflect on the human body we all agree the body is a marvel of God’s creativity. We wouldn’t want our bodies to be missing an organ or a foot or an eye etc. We want a healthy body, so that we are not sick or disabled in any way.

Romans 12:4-5

For just as we have many members in one body, but all the parts do not have the same function, in this way, we the many , are one body in Messiah, but each one part of one another.

The sad thing about many Christians we can be snobs at times. Thinking our work in the body of Christ is more important than anyone else. Many Church leaders like to think they have the most important jobs and therefore they are the most important people. Jesus says ‘the least is the highest and the highest is the least.’ We all need one another. Until we come to that conclusion I believe we get in our own way and everybody else’s. I believe also church leaders job is to ask God for discernment so they can discern what each person gifts are in their congregation and encourage them to use it. We all need some encouragement, including the church leaders.

Some church leaders though like to think it is their church and they should make all the decisions without asking for advice. If God sends them a messenger or a message not to their liking they should welcome the message with thanksgiving and not get angry about it. Because if the message comes from God, what difference does it make who the messenger is. Nobody took Jesus seriously for a while they said ‘isn’t he the son of Joseph…. In other words he is just a carpenter, who does he think he is? God chooses what the world considers foolish to humble the proud. The best qualification you have in serving God has been said to have absolutely no qualifications at all. In that way everybody will know it was God working through that person and not the person who did it. Church leaders should know that better than anybody else.

Life is made up of little things and quiet often it is the little things that hold the bigger things together. You need nails, screws and etc. to build houses. Without these little things you wouldn’t have the luxuries we do have. Same with the gifts God gives us. If you don’t see everybody is equal in the eyes of God you are not going to grow in your gift. It might be even taken away until you learn this lesson. What the world calls people who they think are insignificant in their eyes are not insignificant in the eyes of God. God loves us all equally. One is not more important than another, nor loved more than another.

Prayer for Daily Neglects

isEternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its Love, all its sufferings and all it Merits.

First – to expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life. Glory be to the Father and to the Son …!

Second – to purify the good I have done badly this day and during all my life. Glory be …..!

Third – To supply for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day and during all my life. Glory be ….!

A poor Clare nun, who had just died appeared to her abbess and said to her, ‘I went straight to heaven, for by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I paid my debts.

I say this prayer Eternal Father,… one on each of the other prayers, but that is just my choice. I just feel it is even more powerful that is all. I hope you enjoy saying it, because it tends to lift your spirits after you have said it.

 

The Remnant of the Orthodox Catholic Church

is2C12MD3ZThose who are faithful to the Traditional and True teachings of the Orthodox Catholic Church are being persecuted within the church itself. We need to pray for one another not only to be strong enough to endure persecution, but to have a true heart and mind of God over the matter. We know the true church of God will triumph over evil in the end. That God is fully in control despite of what it looks like to many people. Don’t hate the enemies of God, but pray for their conversion. Be patient till the end and we will be rewarded unimaginably so. We are at war with Satan and Jesus has already won the war. It is a time of testing who will leave Him, through cowardliness or indifference of His sacrifice for them. Pray for the children that they will know the truth about what is from God and what is coming from the enemy the devil. The church will be restored to greater glory than before. It is a promised from God Himself. Meanwhile we must fight the good fight to the end with love and courage and pray for one another, for it is urgent. Many do not know what Catholics are supposed to believe in anymore.

Immaculate Heart’s Flame of Love prayer for Souls in Purgatory

Mary has told Elizbeth Kindelmann while she was alive to spread the devotion of the Immaculate Heart’s Flame of Love Rosary, which you will find amongst the early articles that I wrote. Another short prayer that can be said with the promise it will blind Satan is.

Flood the whole human race with grace from Your Flame of love now and in the hour of our death.

Another prayer Mary has asked us to pray is one Hail Mary during November and it will release ten souls from purgatory any other month you need to say three Hail Mary’s to release one soul from purgatory. So since it is November this is the time to really get start praying it. Not only are we helping souls that no longer can help themselves, but when they arrive in heaven do you think they are going to forget us? They will pray for us until we have arrive to heaven also, out of gratitude.  Love reigns in heaven and gratitude is an expression of love as we all know. So please pray for them.

It is the Little Things

isZTIQ1EJFTo love one another as Christ loves us, we first need to be healed of our emotional wounds through prayer, but love most of all. If we learn not to look at the sin of the person, but instead look at the wounded Christ in that person who is hurting us, it makes things a whole lot easier to forgive. There is a saying ‘hurting people hurt.’ I believe that is true. Not everybody can handle it that well and some seem to be a target more than others, of being hurt by the majority of people than others. I feel they have a very special calling once they have learnt to forgive and love their neighbour. There is a song and one of its line is ‘don’t judge the wounded.’ I bet we are all saying yes to that one, in other words don’t judge me I am wounded. But only too often both parties are judging one another and both have been wounded very deeply. So it is a vicious circle. Only God can fix it. And He does through love and accepting our prayers and sometimes fasting is needed.

If we try to remember Christ lives in us and He is a part of everything we do, we would be more careful how to act and treat one another. It is always easy said than done, but as Christians it is what God expects of us. Evil deeds spread and so do good deeds. Little acts of kindness can be the things that touch people’s hearts the most. I think because they are so little and we are all in such a hurry we don’t do them. But they make a big difference in relating with one another. There is another saying ‘it is the little things that make or break a marriage.’ So it shows us how important the little thoughtful gestures can be. They are not so little in truth. And it is something we all can do. Big things maybe not, but the very little things can melt peoples heart with softness and love. And so there is healing for both parties.

Not everybody is going to respond in a kind manner, but with many prayers and persistence, I think you win more people over that way. Because we all want to be appreciated despite of our faults. I am still learning and it is after all a life time lesson, because there is never an end to love. Love grows and grows to great heights if we are all game and willing to learn enough. I am learning so much from one of my friend’s example. She sees only the best in people most of the time and is very thoughtful of showing kindness in small ways to strangers as well as to her friends. There is nothing like learning from somebodies example.

Romans12:9. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.

1 Peter 4:8. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
