I have always taught my kids to think critically and to seek the truth that’s hidden beneath the sludge of popularism. Satan no longer hides in the deep, and is in our faces dominating every facet of our lives. Most visible in the music and entertainment industry, as well as in our social media and mainstream news. Satan has infiltrated all facets of our culture.
I take the time to talk to my children and ask them to look at the whole picture, and to think critically before trusting the main narratives in our world. Asking questions will help them find the truth rather than be seduced by the lies that is now a part of the norm.
The recent UFO sightings (and shooting down) dominating the news is one example. I have been waiting for this harbinger. First the world had the Covid mandates and shutdowns. The closing of church’s and all public religious gathering was the beginning of the great lie: “Getting vaccinated is an act of love.” The UFO narrative is for me another way of mass control – for we who are in Christ know that these are demon and the work of Satan.
The dark and vile no longer hide. Satan is in your face now! It is everywhere – our music, Hollywood, mainstream media – it’s’ nefarious seeds reaping the minds and souls of the venerable.
Please stay focused on Jesus. No institution is perfect, just as Pope Benedict XVI and many Popes before him and Marian Apparitions have warned – Satans seed has permeated and infested many high places.
UFO and alien deception: a diabolical preparation for the anti-Christ (Daniel O’Connor and John Henry Weston).
The day before his death, I had gone to St. Michaels Cathedral in Toronto and prayed the Joyful Mystery for Pope Benedict. As I prayed for his healing, an inner voice told me to pray for the grace of God to embrace his body and lift him into heaven. The next day, on the Solemnity of Our Blessed Mother, he died.
His death represents for me an ending of an era, and much prayer is needed today for the will and love of God to bless the church today, and to walk in the path of His holy will and no other.
We now enter a new era in the church.
I share with you a teaching today by Father Chris Alar. I watched this with tears, and a heaviness in my heart.
Please take the time to watch this video made by Father Chris Alar on Pope Benedict XVI – it is broadcast on the 1 Saturday of the Month, just after 2023:
God is love. It is his love which created and sustains our universe. God is truth.
As we enter into a New Year, let’s not look back upon all the challenges and say “good riddance,” but rather give thanks to our Heavenly Father for his love and his hand in helping us manoeuvre through it.
Sometimes our individual journey is dark, and it feels as if we are alone. Yes, we don’t see him, but know that God has it all under control – we only need to call upon him.
9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who maintains covenant loyalty with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,
Thank Jesus for being with us always even when we can’t see or feel him.
Let us be mindfully in the moment and give thanks. We can look to 2023 with the assurance that God is faithful.
May God’s blessings follow you into 2023. I pray for each to grow deeper in faith, love Jesus more, know him more intimately, as well as walk in his will more closely. 🙏❤️
May the Holy Family embrace his soul and lift him up before the Father. RIP 🙏💕
I also ask in the name of Jesus, for blessings upon the Catholic Church, all Catholics and Christians as we enter into a New Year, and as we close an era. As we enter into a new age within the Catholic Church, I pray the the Holy Spirit to stir the hearts of lost sheep, and, to move the hearts of those coming to faith. Amen.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and read my posts. I pray that each of us lets the Holy Spirit guide us in a closer walk with Jesus, to love him more dearly, and to know him more intimately as we welcome him into our lives.
“If we approach with faith, we too will see Jesus … for the Eucharistic table takes the place of the crib. Here the Body of the Lord is present, wrapped not in swaddling clothes but in the rays of the Holy Spirit.” –St. John Chrysostom
A Beautiful Meditation For Today
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased’ (Lk 2:12-14). According to the evangelist, the angels ‘said’ this. But Christianity has always understood that the speech of angels is actually song, in which all the glory of the great joy that they proclaim becomes tangibly present. And so, from that moment, the angels’ song of praise has never gone silent. It continues down the centuries in constantly new forms and it resounds ever anew at the celebration of Jesus’ birth. It is only natural that simple believers would then hear the shepherds singing too, and to this day they join in their caroling on the Holy Night, proclaiming in song the great joy that, from then until the end of time, is bestowed on all people.” —Pope Benedict XVI
On this Christmas Eve, I would like to share this quote by Pope Benedict XVI:
“God has done everything; he has done the impossible: he was made flesh. His all-powerful love has accomplished something which surpasses all human understanding: the Infinite has become a child, has entered the human family. And yet, this same God cannot enter my heart unless I open the door to him.”
–Pope Benedict XVI
Let us open the door to him, and share this story to all those around us. Let us pray that Jesus will enter the hearts of those who don’t know him.
I have to admit there was a time I use to acted rashly without thinking it through. In fact, my actions often had consequences. Afterwards, I would feel remorseful and terrible for acting without thinking it through. It created a negative environment that always resulted in a heartfelt apology from me.
There was a lot for me to learn about anger management, and it was only when I humbled myself and sought Jesus’ help that I was able to let go of my impulses and think things through.
Through scripture, prayer and reflection, I now have a deeper understanding of taking the time to find a balance, to look at the whole, and think it through before reacting. Our Blessed Mother is our role model as she reflects on God’s words, teachings, and the situation – pondering.
“[Mary] does not remain locked in her initial troubled state at the proximity of God in his angel, but she seeks to understand. So Mary appears as a fearless woman, one who remains composed even in the presence of something utterly unprecedented. At the same time she stands before us as a woman of great interiority, who holds heart and mind in harmony and seeks to understand the context, the overall significance of God’s message. In this way, she becomes an image of the Church as she considers the word of God, tries to understand it in its entirety and guards in her memory the things that have been given to her.” —Pope Benedict XVI, p. 33
