The Mysteries of the
Most Sorrowing Heart
"Like the lamb's blood on the portal of hearts and homes,
Evil will pass over them and by them"
Moses said to the people:
"And now, Israel, what does the LORD, your God, ask of you
but to fear the LORD, your God, and follow his ways exactly,
to love and serve the LORD, your God, with all your heart and all your soul, to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD which I enjoin on you today for your own good?"
And brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. “And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.
Matthew 10: 21-22
The Seven Moral Standards of Truth
1. "There is a final judgment for each soul."
2. "Heaven and Hell are real."
3. "Satan does exist and wants to destroy all Truth."
4. "You must stand firm in the Truth between good and evil."
5. "Holy Love defines good and leads to your salvation."
6. "All sin - all compromise of Truth and abuse of authority -
are inspired by self-interest."
7. "Never respect man and his opinions above God. Remember,
God looks at what you obey, not who you obey."
(Blessed Mother - February 13, 2015)
"When I return, all people and all nations will be living according to the Father's Ten Commandments and the Moral Standards of Truth in Holy Love. Christian morals will be upheld and the Truth will be made clear."
(Jesus - March 6, 2015)
Over the course of 50 years, the culture, the media, and in many instances members within the Catholic Church have been misrepresenting and distorting Catholic Teaching regarding human sexuality and marriage.
At one point, Pope Paul VI would acknowledge that, “through some fissure, the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God.”
In the encyclical Humane Vitae, Pope Paul VI predicted that the use of the “pill” would lower morality, make infidelity more frequent, and lead to the demeaning of women.
These predictions about contraception have become realities. Yet many, even in the Church, ignored the Holy Father's warnings and to this day continue to distort Catholic teaching regarding marriage and human sexuality.
The Catholic Church has always taught that in order to safeguard the true meaning of married love, its unitive and procreative aspect must not be separated.
EMOTIONAL SENSATIONALISM has/is and will be used to inspire and incite action among Homo sapiens. Great leaders, generals, doctors and teachers have used these tactics ever since the beginning of time to inspire and to incite the masses and chosen individuals into action. Yet without God's Divine Will and HIS Grace, all will be in vain and for not. By the discipline of Christ one masters her/his emotional self and therefore is able to discern the difference of "act on vs acted upon".
The greatest gift of the Holy Spirit is 'Fear of the Lord'. Contemplate this with a pure and holy heart asking for wisdom & understanding. Don't stop until you get it, then shout out your thanks to HIM, to Whom all Glory, Honor and Praise rightfully belong!
HIS Grace will be sufficient. Seek it with all your strength -heart, mind and soul
"For my yoke is sweet and my burden light." Mathew 11: 29-3
Do not be afraid.
For what purpose do you suffer?
Christ is the final sacrifice for my sins, your sins, our sins and their sins...the sins of the whole world. Where there is sin, there is suffering (evil) but in/with/through/by Christ there is an abundance of Grace.
"With God, nothing is impossible." With the power of HIS Holy Spirit and In the state of Holy GRACE, He will be with you. So pick up your cross and return back home to God by following HIM for He is the Truth, the Way, and the Light. HE has come to set us free from sin - mine, yours and theirs. HIS Divine Love & Mercy are now and forever. LET GO NOW and abandon your whole SELF upon HIS HOLY CROSS. HIS PASSION is to bring ALL souls to Heaven that ALL may have eternal life . What are you waiting for?

Prove A Spiritual World Exists - Demonic Activity Caught On Video
The research project on demonology was done through the Most Holy Family Monastery in Fillmore, New York. Because it is 2:43:00 long, it is recommended that you watch the whole video in its entirity but break it into approximately 40 min segments. If you are unable to watch this project, just read the two scripture readings below - one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament.
Rods Turned into Snakes (Old Testament)
10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake. 11 Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts: 12 Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs.
Demons Cast into Pigs (New Testament)
1 AND they came over the strait of the sea into the country of the Gerasens. 2 And as he went out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the monuments a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no man now could bind him, not even with chains. 4 For having been often bound with fetters and chains, he had burst the chains, and broken the fetters in pieces, and no one could tame him. 5 And he was always day and night in the monuments and in the mountains, crying and cutting himself with stones. 6 And seeing Jesus afar off, he ran and adored him. 7 And crying with a loud voice, he said: What have I to do with thee, Jesus the Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God that thou torment me not. 8 For he said unto him: Go out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And he asked him: What is thy name? And he saith to him: My name is Legion, for we are many. 10 And he besought him much, that he would not drive him away out of the country. 11 And there was there near the mountain a great herd of swine, feeding. 12 And the spirits besought him, saying: Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And Jesus immediately gave them leave. And the unclean spirits going out, entered into the swine: and the herd with great violence was carried headlong into the sea, being about two thousand, and were stifled in the sea.

Terrorism must change us — while there is still time by Fr Robert McTeigue, SJ | Jun 14, 2017
“Students will study the great ideas of Western Civilization. Democracy, science, art, and literature will provide the impetus for understanding how the past influences and unifies our culture. Great classical literature and primary sources will be utilized, allowing students to discern the original intent of the writers and the truths of the documents.”

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe,—
Sailed on a river of crystal light Into a sea of dew.
“Where are you going, and what do you wish?”
The old moon asked the three.
“We have come to fish for the herring-fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we,"
Said Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.
The old moon laughed and sang a song,
As they rocked in the wooden shoe;
And the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew;
The little stars were the herring-fish
That lived in the beautiful sea.
“Now cast your nets wherever you wish,— Never afraid are we!”
So cried the stars to the fishermen three,
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.
All night long their nets they threw
To the stars in the twinkling foam,—
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home:
‘Twas all so pretty a sail, it seemed
As if it could not be;
And some folk thought ‘twas a dream they’d dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea;
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.
Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies Is a wee one’s trundle-bed;
So shut your eyes while Mother sings Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:—
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.
Reading 1 2 Cor 3:4-11
Brothers and sisters:
Such confidence we have through Christ toward God.
Not that of ourselves we are qualified to take credit for anything as coming from us; rather, our qualification comes from God,who has indeed qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter brings death, but the Spirit gives life.
