Christ In My Heart

I use to point my fingers up towards the sky when I use to make references about God. It’s a natural reaction when we think of God. He exists outside of time, is all knowing, and all powerful. I no longer point to God as some omnipresent being – God is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the Triune. Now I point to my heart when I talk of Him. He is within me and resides in my heart as I draw nearer to Him through Jesus. Through Jesus, I have been given the grace of the Holy Spirit – my Paraclete – counsellor/teacher. Yes, it’s hard to wrap our heads around this. It is one of the mysteries of God.

“Christ is in you”

“But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is life because of righteousness.”

Romans 8:10

“It is Christ who lives in me”

“I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.”

Galatians 2:20

“Christ is formed in you”

“My children, with whom I travail again in birth until Christ is formed in you.”

Galatians 4:19

“Christ may make His home in your hearts”

“That Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love.”

Ephesians 3:17

“Christ in you”

“To whom God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Colossians 1:27

Powerful Testimonies and Conversion

I sometimes feel I am not doing enough to tell others of our amazing merciful God. I am predominantly home bound and overcoming my own personal challenges. I am not a theologian, a layperson or anyone special. I am simply a wife and mom who loves the triune. Nowadays I’m also spending a lot of time caring Candy – our family Keeshond whose lost the use of her hind legs. It is by the grace of God with the Holy Spirit working in me that I can share with others from where I am.

I came across some incredible conversion stories which I created a page for:

Each story is a gripping and beautiful testament of God’s grace and mercy, as well as their incredible journey to Him.

I hope to add to this page and hope each of you will be inspired, touched and moved by their stories to live a deeper walk with Jesus.

God is there for us, and sometimes He creates situations that leads us to him through others. Each story is unique just as each of us is special and different, and there are elements in each story that teaches us something new and wonderful about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, our Blessed Mother, saints and angels.

God Bless 💖

God is Love

“God is Love” (1 John 4:8)

There is a wonderful simplicity in this statement, that it is easy to miss the essence and profoundness of this message. How do I imagine or even grasp visually, intellectually or even emotionally not only who God is, but what does the phrase – “God is love” mean?

God’s love for me, you and each of us, can be found in the very first verse in the first book of the Bible:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit[c] of God was moving over the face of the waters. Genesis 1:1-2

When I really think about it, God the holy immortal one, did not have to create the world and humanity. He did. He created all out of love. It’s really profoundly simple: “God is Love.”

I can see him in the sky and in the soft fluffy clouds over yonder, and I can see him in the children playing in the park. I can hear God in the birds chirping and tweeting at the first ray of light. God is in the grass beneath my feet as I play catch with my dog. I see him in the ants crawling around their ant mound, or I see him in the trees that stretch outwards reaching out for the sun. I see him in the house plants that adorn my home, and in the seedlings and their sprouting stems as they lean towards the light. I see God’s presence everywhere, and I feel him with every changing tide and nuances in the movement of the moon as day change into night.

God is everywhere – and all the beauty around us is a testament of his everlasting love for us. He is in the beauty in each of us, in our children, in our community, in the our own outpouring of love for others.


Created in Your Likeness (Mixed Media, May 2022)

Just as God is love, we are created in “imago Dei” – image of God. We in turn share in the beauty of life – in the creation of life in the womb. I had drawn and painted this earlier this week. After looking at it for the past few days, there is even beauty in it’s messy playfulness of color and scrawls.

God Bless 💖

Garabandal and the Threats of War

I really don’t like to discuss Bible prophecy. There is enough of it out there, and the need to discern is important. There are a few I do listen to, mainly for their intelligent conversation and insights. Perhaps it is the ability to read the signs of our time. This is what Father Luke and Father Colm Power does, by looking at world events, and piecing together an overview that makes sense without taking a political side. It allows us to discern. They also examine world events in relationship to Garabandal and the Bible.

My own personal viewpoint is a bit bleak – I feel there will be a great chastisement, as I believe we have become Sodom and Gomorrah, a world turned away from God. Natural law, and the Theology of the Body has become him, her and it. Selfish subjectivisms takes reign over God’s truth. Lies, propaganda and one narrative are now the mainstay of all government and mainstream media. Materialism and consumerism have become the god in our hearts.

Evil is no longer hidden. Evil is blatantly spewed in our entertainment and music industry.

Ok enough of what I think, here is the first and second part of the fireside chat with Father Luke and Father Colm:

We are in a spiritual warfare. That is a reality.

Here are the two Biblical verses discussed by Father Colm Power:

62 He gave his people over to the sword,
    and vented his wrath on his heritage. Psalm 78:62 RSVCE

The battle is ahead of us. Those who stand for God, we wear the whole armor of God:

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; 16 above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:10-17


Sometimes, hearing the truth can be painful. Please pray the rosary for peace, and during this Lent (myself included) let us delve deeper and meditate on the Passion of Christ, and accompany him in his journey for our salvation. God Bless 💖

Why – March 25?

Our Lady of Fatima

I have linked Vatican and Catholic News sources on the Consecration of Ukraine and Russia. I am also linking information by Father Chris, MIC and Father Goring to give readers insights into the importance of the upcoming March 25, 2022 – Consecration of Ukraine and Russia.

I won’t be able explain in this short post the importance of this. I have discussed in earlier posting about our Immaculate Mothers’ apparitions, especially to the children in Fatima and her dire warnings of war and the human suffering. In our Holy mothers message to the children in Fatima, she specifically requested for the Consecration of Russia, which was done in the past – but without bishops participation.

Below I have embedded two videos that will help with understanding the significance of March 25th:

Father Goring on his YouTube channel often discusses the many apparitions of our Immaculate Mother. The most recent is today:

Understanding Fatima:

Today’s (March 18, 2020) homily by Father Chris – please take the time to watch:

Up to date Vatican news:

For the latest on Catholic News: https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/

We can help by raising our voices in heartfelt prayers. Let us take the time to pray the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Russia and the Ukraine, and ask God for His blessings upon all mankind.

We can also give our soulful silent groans and moans to God to let Him know we need His intervention.

God Bless 💖

Milo Yiannopoulos Returns To His Catholic Roots

Milo Yiannopoulos an “investigative reporter, reformed sodomite, free-speech martyr, hair icon & to the annoyance of many, a happy person.”

I first came across Milo Yiannopoulos’ work a few years ago and thought his writings were both provocative and insightful, especially in his critical response to leftist ideology.

Although his straight talk can be offensive at times, he is always true to his views which are surprisingly always an accurate study of society and our cancel culture. His poignant testimony about his gay lifestyle and conversion is touching. He also talks about God’s love for him, and his conversion from a homosexual lifestyle back to God.

He gives an insight into the importance of parenting, and how their failure as parents can lead their own children into a homosexual lifestyle.

I would like to share with you Milos’ talk about his return to the roots of his Catholic Faith, and his views on homosexuality and parenting – Repost From Lifesitenews:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/milo-my-new-purpose-is-to-protect-the-unborn-and-help-men-struggling-with-same-sex-attraction/

Through no fault of his own, Milo’s first-ever appearance at the convention did not proceed according to plan. A weather-induced flight delay in New York put him behind schedule, and upon landing in Cleveland he rode in the back of a squad car to make it to the hotel ballroom as quickly as he could.

Speaking with no notes after leaving his luggage behind, Milo gave an impromptu account of his turning away from homosexuality and the challenges he’s now facing.

The conservative provocateur specifically raised his struggles with anhedonia, defined as the inability to feel pleasure, and implied that it is much more difficult to deal with than celibacy.

“When I was unknowingly choosing to live that [homosexual] life, I was condemned to loneliness, addictions, and a variety of other things,” Milo said in reference to the “endless pursuit of dopamine and pleasure” which colored that life.

“I have permanently fried the reward circuits in my brain … Once you fry those circuits, they don’t come back without decades of recalibration,” he added.

Milo also articulated his new twofold mission after returning to the Catholic faith: to establish a Florida-based clinic to help gay men leave the homosexual lifestyle, and to protect the lives of the unborn.

“I’ve never changed on the gay thing, but I guess I’ve stopped being a hypocrite,” he said. “Without Christ, I am fairly sure that I would be dead.”

He’s Got The Whole World In His Hand

The past week has been like an emotional roller coaster ride – my mind, body and soul suffering a sense of disconnection. My body, mind and heart unable to process and grapple with the state of our world – the reality and the possibility of doom. My heart and body felt anxious and restless as I contemplated the outbreak of war – the events in the Ukraine exploded just as in Canada and other parts of the world are still dealing with the consequences of Covid mandates. In Canada, we were still coming to terms with issues of freedom. There is also the threat of China invading Taiwan.

I felt the hand of Satan stroking the fire and manipulating the powers that be, where innocent people are sandwiched between two evils. I understand that things must play out according to God’s plan – we are in a spiritual war. God has given each of us the freedom to chose. Some chose Satan while others chose God.

I recall when Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days, and Satan offered Him wealth, prestige, and a kingdom:

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor; 9 and he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! for it is written, Worship the Lord your God,
and serve only him.” Matthew 4:8-10

To chose that which is good and respectful of the dignity of mankind is also a choice. Sometimes what is thought to be for the good is a subjective perception – just saying – it is a selfish subjective truth that is not God’s righteousness and truth.

I spent the past week getting myself out of despair – my inner demons. With it also came the insightful reality that dwelling on all this is not conducive to the soul. In fact it takes me away from focusing on God.

I realize that to live in this world, having God with me is the only way to live. More importantly, it is to trust only in Him. God has the whole world in His hands:

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
and marked off the heavens with a span,
enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure,
and weighed the mountains in scales
and the hills in a balance? Isaiah 40:12

God Bless and let us rejoice in living with Jesus💖

Pray For FREEDOM and PEACE

Faith, trust and patiently waiting upon God’s will is amazing. I have prayed daily for peace and freedom. This week through God’s divine intervention, I now pray daily with a group of women from other parts of Canada via telegram. We started praying “Prayer to the Canadian Martyrs”. https://www.catholicdoors.com/prayers/novenas/p00047.htm It is mind boggling how God is ever present in our lives – we need only ask. God is waiting for our, “Yes.” God is waiting for our, “Here I am.”

I can only with the most humblest of heart say, “Thank you Jesus!”

As Catholics we can offer our support to those around us through prayer – for their safety and for their wellbeing. It is showing love to our neighbours – it is right and just to offer this in our prayers as part of our faith, and, daily sacrifice to Jesus.

God Is Love

1 John 4:7-12 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.

What is freedom? Let’s look in the Old Testament – the story of Egypt and the enslavement of the Israelites by Pharaoh. They never knew what freedom was until Moses lead them out of Egypt- and they were so indoctrinated that they longed to return to Egypt where they were fed.

Let us pray for freedom, and know that wandering in the wilderness symbolically will give us strength. Endurance in turn develops hope and faith in God.

Romans 5:3-5New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

3 And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

May God’s Blessings light your way 💖
