Confessions Of Falling Into My Disorder

I confess that I am a shopaholic. When I give into my weakness, Satan and his evil minions jump at every opportunity to create a divide between God and me.

A good example, is while online shopping, I spent more money than I had anticipated. I reasoned it was a sale too good to miss – after all it’s a “Back to School” sale. I should know better, especially as my own son was prepping for a huge back to school sale at his stores. Well, I fell into the guile’s of advertisement and “deals”.

Recalling afterwards my crazed mind as I put items into my cart and pressed pay, not once but twice, I realized and bemoaned my indulgence into the flesh and prayed seeking God’s forgiveness. Seeking for the strength to turn away from things of this world. Thank goodness our God is merciful.

God has a way of speaking to me that always strikes at my inner core. It results in a deeper understanding of Sacred Scripture:

22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Fatherknows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Luke 12:22-34

This verse is especially poignant and meaning because it was part of my meditation for the past few weeks. The depth of meaning in it didn’t hit me until I committed the self indulgent deed of falling prey to my own shopping frenzy.

It was only after I’ve fallen to my own vice that I can finally understand Luke 12:22-34.


God is merciful and will continue to guide us to become more aware of the narrow road towards holiness. I am thankful for his teachings, and graceful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.


Satan and his minion are ever present and waiting to prey on our weaknesses. Vigilance Is the key. I can only battle evil with the help of Jesus. I came across the work of an Exorcist – Fr. Ripperger through the Augustine Institute. Please take the time to watch the following videos. They will help each of us to battle our brokenness with the help of the triune.

God’s Healing Breath

The past year and a half, has seen me work towards a more balanced spiritual, mental, emotional and physical well-being. None of this would have been possible without a deeper intimacy with Jesus and his divine grace. After becoming depressed and isolated at home during the onset of the Covid Pandemic, my only solace was the Bible. I remember praying for God’s intervention and guidance for healing in my life – to help me find him again, and “to be a stronger me in my own existence”. As I reflect back, Jesus has always been there as he is for each of us. Jesus was simply waiting for me and each of us to invite him into our lives for a deeper relationship.

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Revelations 3:20

Thank you Jesus for the grace to know you more intimately, love you more deeply, and to walk with you more closely.

In fact, through working with a Saint Ignatius Spiritual Director, Art Therapist, and physical exercise, I am now better equip spiritually, emotionally and physically to step back into the ring of life and be the person God meant me to be. That is of course not without the daily challenges that comes with living – but with Jesus in my heart and the foundations of the Catholic faith, I am a stronger me in my own existence.

A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

Psalm 23

Catholic Prayers For Soul Healing

O’ holy one

I have come before you today who needs your healing hand. Everything is possible in you.

Hold my heart within you, and renew my mind, body, and spirit.

I am lost, but I come to you with grace.

You gave us life, and you also give us the gift of eternal bliss.

Give me the strength to move forward on the path you have made for me.

Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify the people you have around me to help me get better.

If you have bad memories, anguish, anxiety, or guilt, a “prayer for soul healing” will address those worries. It also focuses on forgiving the causes of your pain.


Catholic Prayers For Depression

Sometimes the thing we need most in order to heal — or even to think about healing — is some good, restful sleep. This prayer asks Jesus to help you sleep, to free the demons from your thoughts, and to have angels over you while you sleep.

Grand spirit

Thank you for being with me through all the ups and downs of my life and the blessings you have given me, for which I admire and thank you.

You know the disease I’ve been battling for a long time and there’s little that can be done by the medical profession – but believe me, I’m awesome and wonderfully made and you know every part of it is my body. You know exactly why I’ve been sick for so long. I come to you now asking that you will do complete recovery work on my body – whatever is causing this persistent problem. I pray that you, by your mercy, give me the health and strength that I need.

Lead me on the path you have planned for me.


God Bless 🙏💕

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 💖

Milo Yiannopoulos: Finding Peace and Strength in God’s Loving Will

A must watch into the heart and soul of one of the most iconic thinkers in our world today. He and Jordan Peterson’s recent return and conversion shows first hand God’s amazing grace and divine mercy at work.

Please take the time to watch both parts, as they are an insightful look into God’s hand in a life of a sinner (which we are all too!), and the transformation that comes with seeking to live God’s divine will. Milo Yiannopoulos is both sincere, funny and insightfully reflective as he tells his story.

God Bless 💖

Aside: All of us have a unique and personal story to tell of our conversion or coming to faith in the Triune. They represent the beauty of God calling to us. Our coming to faith fills that empty hole created by the sins of our first parents. For since the creation of mankind, we were meant to be in relationship with God. God’s love for us in becoming man through Jesus is a testament of His love for us. Jesus defeated death so that we may be set free from our sins.

Praise be to The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit 🙏

The Assurance

God doesn’t need much.

He needs our yes.

His glory is manifested when we say yes.

For days when we need that extra assurance

There will definitely be times in our lives when a certain doubtfulness or uncertainty sets in. I found that memorizing the following Bible verses have helped me immensely. They offer a source of truth that lights my way. Often, I would choose one and pray with it. Here are a six Bible verses which has grounded me with God’s assurance:

salvation

11 And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5:11-12

answered pray

24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. John 6:24

Victory

13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[e] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV – I like the use of the word temptation used in this translation)

forgiveness

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Guidance

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

love

34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

And they will know we are Christians by our love.

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💖

Mark Wahlberg’s Passion for Christ

I was moved by an interview on EWTN with Mark Wahlberg discussing his new film about Father Stu. Mark Wahlberg talks about drawing from his own personal journey with God. He also talks about prayer and the rosary as powerful tools. His film on Father Stu is his – passion – for Jesus. He is a Catholic using his talent to plant seeds for Jesus.”

It is not only spiritually inspirational, but the honesty and candidness is relatable:

I will definitely see this film when it comes out, because it’s a project from the heart with God at the center. How often do we ask ourselves, “how can I serve you Jesus?”

“Planting seeds for Jesus.”

Using the gifts given to each of us to plant seeds with humility and the knowledge that we are not perfect, but with Jesus in our heart, we can strive to walk towards a little more holiness and saintliness.

God Bless 💖
