Jesus is Coming!

I WANT to say it as clear and loud and boldly as I possibly can: Jesus is coming! Did you think that Pope John Paul II was just being poetic when he said:Continue reading

Creation’s “I love you”

 

 

“WHERE is God? Why is He so silent? Where is He?” Nearly every person, at some point in their lives, utters these words. We do most often in suffering, sickness, loneliness, intense trials, and probably most frequently, in dryness in our spiritual lives. Yet, we really have to answer those questions with an honest rhetorical question: “Where can God go?” He is ever-present, always there, always with and among us — even if the sense of His presence is intangible. In some ways, God is simply and almost always in disguise.Continue reading

On Luisa and her Writings…

 

First published January 7th, 2020:

 

IT’S time to address some of the emails and messages questioning the orthodoxy of the writings of Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. Some of you have said that your priests have gone so far as to declare her a heretic. It’s perhaps necessary, then, to restore your confidence in Luisa’s writings which, I assure you, are approved by the Church.

The Little Stone

 

SOMETIMES the sense of my insignificance is overwhelming. I see how expansive the universe is and how planet Earth is but a grain of sand amidst it all. Moreover, on this cosmic speck, I am but one of nearly 8 billion people. And soon, like the billions before me, I will be buried in the ground and all but forgotten, save perhaps for those who are closest to me. It is a humbling reality. And in the face of this truth, I sometimes struggle with the idea that God could possibly concern Himself with me in the intense, personal, and profound way that both modern evangelicalism and the writings of the Saints suggest. And yet, if we enter into this personal relationship with Jesus, as I and many of you have, it is true: the love we can experience at times is intense, real, and literally “out of this world” — to the point that an authentic relationship with God is truly The Greatest Revolution

Still, I feel my littleness no more intensely at times than when I read the writings of Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta and the profound invitation to live in the Divine Will… Continue reading

Ask, Seek, and Knock

 

Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you…
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father
give good things to those who ask him.
(Matt 7:7-11)


LATELY, I’ve had to really focus on taking my own advice. I wrote some time ago that, the closer we get to the Eye of this Great Storm, the more we need to focus on Jesus. For the winds of this diabolical tempest are winds of confusion, fear, and lies. We will be blinded if we try to stare into them, decipher them — as much as one would be if he tried to stare down a Category 5 hurricane. The daily images, headlines, and messaging are being presented to you as “news”. They are not. This is Satan’s playground now — carefully crafted psychological warfare on humanity directed by the “father of lies” to prepare the way for the Great Reset and Fourth Industrial Revolution: a completely controlled, digitized, and godless world order.Continue reading

The Jonah Hour

 

AS I was praying before the Blessed Sacrament this past weekend, I felt Our Lord’s intense grief — sobbing, it seemed, that mankind has so refused His love. For the next hour, we wept together… me, profusely begging His forgiveness for my and our collective failure to love Him in return… and He, because humanity has now unleashed a Storm of its own making.Continue reading

How to Live In the Divine Will

 

GOD has reserved, for our times, the “gift of living in the Divine Will” that once was Adam’s birthright but was lost through original sin. Now it is being restored as the final stage of the People of God’s long journey back to the Father’s heart, to make of them a Bride “without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph 5:27).Continue reading

Simple Obedience

 

Fear the LORD, your God,
and keep, throughout the days of your lives,
all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you,
and thus have long life.
Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them,
that you may grow and prosper the more,
in keeping with the promise of the LORD, the God of your fathers,
to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.

IMAGINE if you were invited to meet your favorite performer or perhaps a head of state. You would likely wear something nice, fix your hair just right and be on your most courteous behavior.Continue reading

The Mystery of the Kingdom of God

 

What is the Kingdom of God like?
To what can I compare it?
It is like a mustard seed that a man took
and planted in the garden.
When it was fully grown, it became a large bush
and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.

(Today’s Gospel)

 

EVERY day, we pray the words: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Jesus would not have taught us to pray as such unless we were to expect the Kingdom yet to come. At the same time, the first words of Our Lord in His ministry were:Continue reading

The Resurrection of the Church

 

The most authoritative view, and the one that appears
to be most in harmony with Holy Scripture, is that,
after the fall of the Antichrist, the Catholic Church will
once again enter upon a period of
prosperity and triumph.

The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life,
Fr. Charles Arminjon (1824-1885), p. 56-57; Sophia Institute Press

 

THERE is a mysterious passage in the book of Daniel that is unfolding in our time. It further reveals what God is planning at this hour as the world continues its descent into darkness…Continue reading
