We Were Warned

THE world and the Church have not arrived at this decisive moment in time without warning. In Episode 15 of Embracing Hope, Mark addresses a topic he has neither written or spoken of before… of a secret agenda to undermine the Church. But it wasn’t so secret, as several pontiffs over the past two centuries have been warning the faithful about it… but has anyone listened?

Watch Episode 15 to understand how a diabolical plan has been unfolding for centuries and is now ready to be fully implemented… but also how God is in complete control, and nothing comes about without His sovereign hand guiding it. Don’t miss this eye-opening webcast that will help prepare you for the Great Storm of our times.

The Hard Truth — Part V

                 Unborn Baby at 8 Weeks                                                    Lobster 

 

First published December 15th, 2006… this writing is never far from my thoughts. I have updated it with references to Pope Benedict’s latest encyclical. 

 

TOLERANT, Humane, Equal—the new Trinity of the modern world, the image in which we have recreated ourselves. As such in this emerging New World Order, animals have been given the same rights as humans… if not more.

Hope is Dawning

 

First published January 23rd, 2008.  This word brings into focus once again what all our waiting, watching, fasting, praying, and suffering is all about at this time in history. It reminds us that darkness will not triumph. Moreover, it reminds us that we are not defeated souls, but sons and daughters of God called into a mission, sealed with the power of the Holy Spirit, and inscribed with the name and authority of Jesus. Do not be afraid! Nor think that because you are insignificant in the eyes of the world, hidden from the masses, that God does not have a significant plan for you. Renew your commitment to Jesus today, trusting in His love and mercy. Begin again. Gird your loins. Tighten the ropes upon your sandals. Lift high the shield of faith, and grasp the hand of your Mother in the holy Rosary.

This is not the time for comfort, but the time for miracles! For Hope is dawning…

The Prophecy at Rome – Part III

 

THE Prophecy at Rome, given in the presence of Pope Paul VI in 1973, goes on to say…

Days of darkness are coming on the world, days of tribulation…

In Episode 13 of Embracing Hope TV, Mark explains these words in light of the powerful and clear warnings of the Holy Fathers. God has not abandoned His sheep! He is speaking through His chief shepherds, and we need to hear what they are saying. It is not the time to be afraid, but to wake up and prepare for the glorious and difficult days ahead.

O Canada… Where Are You?

 

 

First published March 4th, 2008. This writing has been updated with more recent events. It forms part of the underlying context for Part III of the Prophecy at Rome, coming to Embracing Hope TV later this week. 

 

DURING the past 17 years, my ministry has brought me from coast to coast in Canada. I have been everywhere from big city parishes to little country churches standing at the edge of wheat fields. I have met many souls who have a deep love for God and great desire for others to know Him too. I have encountered many priests who are faithful to the Church and doing whatever they can to serve their flocks. And there are those little pockets here and there of youth who are on fire for the Kingdom of God and working hard to bring conversion to even just a handful of their peers in this great counter-cultural battle between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. 

God has granted me the privilege to minister to tens of thousands of my fellow countrymen. I have been granted a bird’s eye view of the Canadian Catholic Church that perhaps few even among the clergy have experienced.  

Which is why tonight, my soul is aching…

Of Despair and a Dairy Cow

 

THERE is much happening in the world that, frankly, seems depressing. Or at least, it can be without viewing it through the lens of Divine Providence. The season of autumn can be bleak to some as the leaves fade, fall to the ground, and decay. But to the one with foresight, this fallen foliage is the fertilizer which will produce a glorious springtime of color and life.

This week, I intended to speak in Part III of the Prophecy at Rome about "the fall" which we are living in. However, aside from the usual spiritual warfare, there was another distraction: a new member of the family arrived.

Silence


Photo by Martin Bremmer Walkway

 

SILENCE. It is the mother of peace.

When we allow our flesh to become "noisy," giving in to all its demands, we lose that "peace which surpasses all understanding." But silence of the tongue, silence of the appetites, and silence of the eyes is like a chisel, carving away the passions of the flesh, until the soul is open and empty like a bowl. But empty, only so as to be filled with God.
