GOD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR HIS REMNANT ARMY (Part 2)– preparing us, guiding us.

A+M+D+G

We know that Jesus chooses our readings each week.

We could not help but notice – the topics, the repetitions, and the timing relevant to church/world events.The readings are chosen after the Crusade Prayers. They are chosen randomly with a prayer to the Holy Spirit first to guide us.

On Thursday 13th April at our JtM prayer group one of the readings we opened up on was  about the coming Abomination of the Eucharist, when a new Liturgy will be introduced with the meaning of the Eucharist changed. See:  https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/04/18/jtm-crusade-prayer-meeting-on-thursday13th-april-2017/

On Thursday 20th April, the following week, we again opened up on exactly the same reading about the Eucharist. There was no marker in the book, and the book was picked out randomly from the pile of volumes 1 to 5. The Crusader involved asked “should I open it again?”. DonnaLiane responded and urged her to open it again. She re-opened it and lo and behold – it was the SAME reading. See: https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/04/20/jtm-crusade-prayer-meeting-on-thursday-20th-april-2017/

God was trying to tell us something2 weeks in a row. Donna explained: “It was because I had learnt from the night before* that God can do the most unlikely thing and give you the same reading twice, that I exhorted and told Mum that He would if He wanted to – and then He did!!

God was laughing at me! Then we were laughing too. 

* It was confirmation of the night before’s reading on the Book of Truth! (answering the problem I had – see previous post “GOD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR HIS REMNANT ARMY (Part 1)”

Then, Donna wrote (on Saturday 22 April):

I woke up this morning)  singing the most unlikely hymn as I was half awake /half asleep. It took me a while to remember all the words (mainly the first line) but I’m sure my angel put it in my head as I DID go to sleep while praying and haven’t heard this hymn in YEARS! Not even a reference to it!

It goes…

” Sons of God

Hear His Holy Word

Gather round the table of the Lord

Eat His Body

Drink His Blood

And we’ll sing a song of Love

Allelu, Allelu, Allelu, Allelulia!”

Email Signed: ‘Joyfully Jesus’ (through Mary)’

Mum replied:

This is a confirmation of the messages we have had in the last 2 weeks about the Eucharist.

Be aware of the Eucharist -and ALL that It is. It is as if the words are for all those who will be faithful to the Truth about Jesus present in the Eucharist.

That Night 

Donna Liane opened on: Hosea 9: 1 – 6 (The Sorrows of Exile).

They have deserted God and the bread and wine won’t nourish them. They won’t offer the sacrifice of the Lord anymore.

And their bread will be like mourners bread. It will make them unclean…

and then their treasures will become overrun with weeds too. They will have nowhere to celebrate on the day of the Lordthe day of solemn festival. They will have gone from the devastation and left into exile by then.

This is a summary, not the actual Passage.

Have a read of the actual words:

1Do not rejoice, Israel,

do not exult like the nations!

For you have prostituted yourself, abandoning your God,

loving a prostitute’s fee

upon every threshing floor.

2Threshing floor and wine press will not nourish them,

the new wine will fail them.

3They will not dwell in the LORD’s land;

Ephraim will return to Egypt,

and in Assyria they will eat unclean food.

4They will not pour libations of wine to the LORD,

and their sacrifices will not please him.

Their bread will be like mourners’ bread

that makes unclean all who eat of it;

Their food will be for their own appetites;

it cannot enter the house of the LORD.

5What will you do on the festival day,

the day of the LORD’s feast?

6* When they flee from the devastation,

Egypt will gather them, Memphis will bury them.

Weeds will overgrow their silver treasures,

and thorns, their tents.

This is also about the loss of the Eucharist .

We think God is trying to tell us that this is close.

It is urgent that we are prepared – that we warn others!

God is always there for His Remnant Army (mother and daughter conversation).

A+M+D+G

I had been feeling unsettled after reading some material and a bishop’s opinion about the messages given to Maria Divine Mercy in the Book of Truth. Now, I know that I have discerned these prophecies at great length- and with a pure heart and clear conscience and have received unbelievable, undeserved graces, favours and miracles... We ALL HAVE! But it is much easier to understand why the “modernist” priests and bishops make hasty, scathing condemnations. When faithful priests or bishops raise doubts about errors, while others believe they are sent from God the Most High, it can be disconcerting.

I know my Faith, but I am not a theologian. It was clear to me at this point after all I’ve read, that not even the theologians agree! And many people lie and are misinformed. No full church investigation has been conducted and so no official church pronouncement can be made. Many offer their human opinions.

However, at this point I turned to my loving Father, Lord and God, and asked him to sort out the mess. I gave him my state of mind and submitted it all to Him. After all, He knows the truth of the matter and could guide me, as He has before. Prayer is paramount- and submission of  intellectual views and opinion. Only the Truth matters and the words of God’s true prophets often defy reason – and popular opinion! “Show Me, Lord what is true; what I need to know. I want to obey You above all things.” We had this conversation over the dishes.

Before too long, God gave me my answer (once again). He is always profoundly clear. Below is the conversation between my mum and I, as I tell what happened and how God sent confirmation…

 

On 19 Apr 2017, at 8:02 PM, I wrote:

 “Mum, I know God is good to us, but this is overwhelming!

Background…

I had just looked up some stuff on Archbishop Diarmund Martin from Ireland and had commented on his LGBTI standpoint (against Church teaching) and therefore his lack of appropriate reference point, to condemn MDM. (ie. Clearly he doesn’t know, follow or believe the Catechism.)

Anyway, then I read some Catholic bishops statements against MDM – including one by Anthony Fischer and in another article referencing a blogsite with reasons given by Fr John F. There wasn’t, and I think isn’t, any comprehensive list of these supposed theological and historical errors, but I suppose I felt a bit deflated and concerned.

Still, believing that the devil cannot read my mind, while in the kitchen putting dishes and stuff away, I inwardly prayed to God, because He alone knows the Truth and He said to always come to Him if we were unsure, or in need of reinforcement. Come to Him for confirmation. Trust in Him. We need Him for guidance and sometimes we need even further strengthening, even now… after so many signs.

  He is so good, mum!!

After my prayer I went to read my Bible before bed. I remembered that once before (many times actually) God had sent me confirmation through His Word in the Holy Bible. I thought surely it isn’t possible to open on a direct answer again…about whether this is the Book of Truth as we believe and whether Bergoglio is truly the pope or the False Prophet of scripture, but I will open my Bible to read His Words and try to discern what He is saying to me through whatever scripture He gives me to contemplate…

But apparently, it is possible!

I opened somewhere about 3/4 through my Bible, with no markers on that page. I opened directly on Daniel Chapter 12 and saw immediately the subheading: ‘the Time of the End’. In this chapter, of all those in the Holy Bible, God speaks to Daniel about the Book of Truth which has been sealed up for the end times. This I had not yet read.

I started to read from the heading before it– which seems to be all about Bergoglio and his election and subsequent interactions with world and church leaders. It described him perfectly. (See Daniel 11: 21-45)

Then I started Daniel 12: 1-13 which speaks specifically of the Book of Truth (as God had showed me last time, but in a different passage). I had not even dared to think I’d even open on Daniel, let alone another passage re: the Book of Truth and the End Times prophecies!!

“At that time there shall arise Michael,

the great prince,guardian of your people;

It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress

since the nation began until that time.

At that time your people shall escape,

everyone who is found written in the book

2Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;

Some to everlasting life,

others to reproach and everlasting disgrace.b

3But those with insight shall shine brightly

like the splendor of the firmament,

And those who lead the many to justice

shall be like the stars  forever.

4“As for you, Daniel, keep secret the message and seal the book until the end time; many shall wander aimlessly and evil shall increase.”

5I, Daniel, looked and saw two others, one standing on either bank of the river. 6One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was upstream, “How long shall it be to the end of these appalling things?”

7The man clothed in linen, who was upstream, lifted his hands to heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives forever that it should be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that, when the power of the destroyer of the holy people was brought to an end, all these things should end. 8I heard, but I did not understand; so I asked, “My lord, what follows this?”

 9Go, Daniel,” he said, “because the words are to be kept secret and sealed until the end time. 10 Many shall be refined, purified, and tested, but the wicked shall prove wicked; the wicked shall have no understanding, but those with insight shall.

11 From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the desolating abomination is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed are they who have patience and persevere for the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. 13 Go, take your rest, you shall rise for your reward at the end of days.”

 

Furthermore the line that spoke to my heart this time and stood out as I read it was line 10:

 “The wicked shall have no understanding, but those with insight shall.”

I’m going to leave my story there for I believe it says enough.

Love Donna.

P.S. My Bible had plenty of markers in it that I forgot to remove but I did not open on any of those. And it was a different edition Bible to last time. Different in print size, page size and page numbers etc so I wasn’t approximating a location or anything. I had no idea that would happen. In fact I thought it to be about the most unlikely answer I could possibly get (twice!!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Mum’s answer to my testimony later that same night:

“ God never ceases to amaze.

He really DOES care and look out for His Remnant Army!

He loves us SOOO much!!!

He knows our weaknesses and the incredible tactics of the evil one.

He knows how much of a threat we are to the plans of the evil one.

He knows that the hierarchy – bishops, priests, etc can use their knowledge and twist the Truth just as powerfully as the False prophet does, and if we don’t turn to God, like you did, we could be lost.

Ask JESUS!!! He will show us the answer. Afterwards we will only be stronger and be awake to some of the evil one’s methods of attack

So never be surprised at doubts and attacks.

That’s when we have to “band together”** and rely on our prayer group members to fortify us as well.

 That’s why we have to keep praying!

 That’s why we have to keep reading and re-reading the promises to the Remnant Army.

 That’s why we need strength from visits to Jesus at Adoration and daily Mass whenever possible.

 That’s why we should never forget to ask Jesus for help.

That’s why we need to remember little exhortations :

” Jesus mercy, Mary Help!

” Jesus cover me with your Precious Blood”.

 “Dearest Mother, Cover me with your mantle (that I may be invisible to evil one)”

 “St Michael, protect me with your sword and your shield.”

I think you should do a post of reassurance. It will be good for all Crusaders to read.

Remember the guy from … He was so committed and wrote brilliant articles….Only the strong will survive! Be prepared for anything and everything.

Be humble. That’s how St Michael won the battle in heaven.

Mum+++

(** this is from the quote on our home page, which was Donna’s inspiration when we updated this blogsite; which again God confirmed with the words from the Bible that she opened on after writing it. They can be read underneath her words. See our Home page at: https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/)

  Donna’s reply:

Thanks mum. *I just smelt roses for a moment at the end of your discourse!

It was really reassuring to read that the sign was as amazing to you as to me and touched you too. Thank you for that support, Godthrough mum!

I think your words are so inspired that I would not publish unless you let me put your words in too.

But first it’s a bit new and private. I feel quite unworthy and a bit…vulnerable. I’ll just tell prayer group first and then I’ll wait a bit.

Thanks, mum

(* This statement about the roses was very affirming for us. See my mother’s explanation after her comment below).

My mum answered: 

 “Don’t feel vulnerable. He attacks when and where we are weak and stressed.

Remember L…? And my experience – but attacked in  different ways – sometimes about trivial things! But God answers us when we call out to Him. I know that for sure because He answered me too – in the most unexpected and reassuring way!!! Besides, I liked the “smelling roses” bit that you experienced at the end of what I wrote. It reaffirmed for me that Our Lady was there with us (that other time…)- except then it was something  someone said: “Our lady was definitely here with us today”. This person did not know what I had been going through, or that I had asked Our Lady for help earlier in the day, because I knew I could not cope on my own.

I didn’t mean to write so much.

It just flowed out.!!!!!!

Our Blessed Mother looks out for us too.

May God continue to bless us all +++

Mum”

(*Donna smelling the roses was an affirmation for me. It was an affirmation that Our Lady is here with us also – supporting and inspiring the Remnant Army. It meant that I was meant to write it. I didn’t mean to write so much in my exhortation to Donna. I just meant to write a word or 2 of support, but I was on fire and couldn’t stop writing.)

The next day – Donna

“It’s ok. I’m all good now. I wanted to delay because I was worried that all we had received was through our senses and therefore we could be deceived (through our senses).

However… I had another chat with Father God and gave Him all my senses and my soul. I asked Him to protect our souls, and not let our souls be deceived. God is good and would not give his children a stone when they ask for bread. He can’t possibly fail us in this way.

Even with (…) He steered us away at the right time. We are safe if we keep turning to Him.

Mum’s reply: “When you call on God, He always comes to the rescue.

Our intellectual pride is the only thing that might stand in the way.

The evil one is cunning and knows when and how to attack.

Crusaders are a BIG threat to him.

He can’t win if we always call on God to help, and also the rest of the army the angels, St Michael, Our Lady, etc”

So there is our advice, remnant army – 

the most important thing to ever remember.

When under attack or having doubts or lacking peace in your soul,

pray, pray, pray!  

Ask and you will receive… God will come to your rescue!

Only a false Prophet could speak such words – Part 2: Discerning

A+M+D+G

” Every prophet should be discerned, by individuals praying fervently to God for His Wisdom. Prophecy should not be despised, as St Paul said:

“Quench not the Spirit.Despise not prophecies. Instead prove all things; hold fast to that which is  good.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:19-21)

…Over time, I learnt many ways to discern whether someone is a true prophet. And most of all God taught me that it is sheer pride to believe that you ‘know’ what a certain “prophet” would say, because of your knowledge, or intelligence or learnedness or  that you ‘don’t need to know’ or ‘hear’ what he/she has to say.

 To reject His true prophets greatly offends God and arouses His anger. There are plenty of examples of prophecy in the Bible and what happens when people reject His Words and warnings given through prophecy. Read what He says! Do not be ignorant or full of pride.

These are the ways that I have learnt to listen to and discern prophecy and they are all as important as each other.

1. Whether their messages do not contradict any Truths of the Catholic Faith and authentic Church Teaching.

Their words likewise should not contradict the Holy Bible, of course. The words should honour Jesus as we’d expect for Our King and teach or reiterate the truths of our Faith.

These prophets should submit in obedience to a spiritual director. This is so that they themselves can be scrutinised and guided to know what is “of God”, when they are being tested or deceived and to help them discern God’s Will. A good spiritual director has the good of the soul and the whole Church at heart.

2. You will know them by their good fruits (ie. true conversions), growth in faith, hope and love/charity. The Bible tell us that this is a sign of a true prophet.

3. Whether their prophecies come true or are confirmed over the course of time.

Again the Bible tells us this is a sign of a true prophet. This especially applies to specific and unexpected events (not so much to general, expected events such as an earthquake in an earthquake zone.) This does not mean that prophecies involving chastisement cannot be mitigated, reduced, delayed or averted through prayer. They can!  God warns us for a reason. But certainly when specific prophecies can and do unexpectedly come true, they can be considered to be a possible  sign of authenticity. (See Prophecies fulfilled on this website: go to Menu and select category)

4. Whether the prophecies shake you out of complacency.

The Bible warns us of false prophets proclaiming only “peace, peace.”

In fact the Word of God cuts like a knife– even to dividing soul from spirit. If it’s not challenging you, it’s not the Word of God!

5. Other genuine signs and miracles. (Also see ‘Signs and Wonders’ and ‘Worldwide prayer group miracles on this site).

God gives signs. He has always done so. Pay attention to miracles-especially those which cannot be replicated or incited through emotionalism. Even more so when they are verified or experienced by more than one person.

6. Whether they impart with authority the Holy Word of God.

The sheep know their Shepherd’s voice and follow Him. God is not wishy-washy. He has all authority and power in heaven and on earth. He commands. He imparts His exact Words directly to prophets and they say ” The Lord says thus..” You must read your Bible and learn from Him! Do not think that because you have never seen or known of it in your experience, that it cannot be true.

7. Whether anti-fruits are present indicating a charleton. Eg. If they appear to seek personal gain (such as money, status, power or attention) or only gain for God, is important. Look at what they seek to gain. Examine their motives. (See our earlier post ‘Only a false prophet could speak such words: Part 1)

8. Whether the prophet has been greatly changed and affected themselves by their experience. Eg. Are they led to be transformed in holiness? Do they lead good and holy lives? This is best observed over time if possible.

9. Also Jesus says that His sheep know His voice

If you are close to Our Lord and have read many of His Words contained in writings to saints, prophets, seers and visionaries etc as well as the Most Holy Bible, your heart will leap at the sound of your Master’s voice! Inside you may feel a “little flame” burning in your heart whenever you hear the Words that are of the Holy Spirit, just as the disciples on their way to Emmaus felt.

Luke 24:[32]And they said one to the other: Was not our heart burning within us, whilst He spoke in this way, and opened to us the scriptures?”

In all things, pray to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment, with a sincere heart.

9. A true prophet is never accepted in their hometown.

Jesus said so. They are rejected, slandered and persecuted. The more intensely this occurs, the more the devil is trying to stop them. All true prophets are lied about. The more holy the message,the more intense the attack against it. Be careful not to believe stories. Discover the truth for yourself. If in doubt, ask Jesus!

10. Lastly through (sustained) prayer for discernment (detached from any particular outcome).

It is an offence to God and the pinnacle of pride to not ask God His opinion!! No one is above God. He alone knows the answer to what you seek. Ask and you will receive. He will not give a rock when you ask for bread. He will answer you! Be patient though and offer sustained prayer and fasting.

Discernment is a precious, precious gift from The Lord. When you receive it, be grateful!

Thank Him in the same Spirit and with as much fervency as when you first asked!”

Stations of the Cross – Lord what have they done?

A+M+D+G

This is how the Stations of the Cross Devotion should be prayed.

jesusviacrucis

But this is not what happened on Good Friday.

At first, I was really mad…now, I am just really sad!

A friend brought to me a version of the Stations of the Cross that was used in a local parish on Good Friday.

I have seen modern versions of the Stations in various churches. Some have added a fifteenth station – the Resurrection. I don’t like it, but I can live with it.

Many have replaced their traditional depictions of the Stations with more modernist type portrayals, but they still have the SAME titles for each station. But this one was like  nothing I have ever seen!

It is like everything is progressing in a downwards spiral very fast. Another Crusader friend has shown me her Church Bulletin and the prayers of the faithful. Another has been horrified at the so-called “prayers” of the faithful (which are now prescribed and printed in a book)! I guess this is so that everyone is clear on what the agenda is supposed to be.

We have seen during this papacy, a few off-the-cuff comments here and there, twisting of the words of the Gospel,  little doubts expressed about Jesus’ intended meaning, a few footnotes sprinkled with words misquoted from a saintly pope and taken out of context, many negative aspersions cast on “traditional’ Catholics – a little drop of poison and before long, the whole lot has been tainted and is deadly!

Now one of our most loved devotions has been poisoned. I can’t believe what they did to the Way of the Cross! I shouldn’t be surprised, I should have seen it coming – they added Stations, they left some out. They mixed them all up. They feel empty! There is no expression of sorrow for sin or plea for mercy or forgiveness.

After the prayer intentions of each Station, instead of “have mercy on us” the response was “We thank you Lord”. The prayer intentions seem at first sight generally okay, but the emphasis is wrong. We should be expressing our sorrow and asking for mercy and forgiveness for what our sins have done. One glaring prayer that stood out – “Jesus, for turning to prayer and not violence in your anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane’ – We thank you Lord’ !!!.Why would Jesus turn to violence – He was the Son of God, not just a criminal or terrorist!!!

                                                  *(Click to download excerpt: Modern Stations of Cross )

There are no beautiful meditations for each Station, as is found in every version of the Stations I have ever read, such as that of St Alphonsus Liguori, or St Padre Pio, or St Faustina’s Way of the Cross, or that of Plinio Correa de Oliveira etc – only a “meditative silence” is inserted in the booklet. We need to be firstly guided by the thoughts of holy people such as of the aforementioned  not just simply thrown into an empty vacuum of our own thoughts that we could still be dwelling on, and tainted by the secular world. 

The stations that were completely ignored:

Jesus is condemned to die

Jesus falls the First Time

Jesus falls the Second Time

Jesus falls the Third Time

Jesus meets His Mother

Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus

Jesus is taken down from the Cross

These are very holy and significant events, To omit them is tantamount to ignoring their importance, or even denying that they ever happened. It is especially significant in contemplating the meaning of them for us in guiding us in our everyday lives.

Stations that are renamed and/or renumbered:

Jesus is buried (versus ‘Jesus is laid in the tomb’).

The new title, seems somehow more disrespectful. He actually wasn’t buried – put in a grave and covered over with dirt, as the term ‘bury’ implies. Laid in the tomb is not only more accurate, it is more gentle and implies a much more respectful picture of what occurred.

Jesus is stripped and nailed to the Cross.

Two Stations have been combined into one. The stripping is not even mentioned in the reading, nor is the nailing. The title seems to be just lip service to what happened.  It simply says “When they reached the place of the skull, they crucified him there and the two thieves…Obviously our modern society can’t contemplate the horrific and cruel nailing to the Cross to which our Saviour subjected Himself because He loved us. So the simplest words are chosen from the Gospel. Combining the two concepts into one, also waters down the whole event and makes it a little more insignificant.

Jesus before Pilate (versus Jesus is condemned to die).

The scriptural text chosen is John 18: 33-37: It is indeed Jesus before Pilate but NO MENTION of Jesus being condemned, just the discourse about Him being a king.

The women of Jerusalem weep for Jesus (versus Jesus consoles the women of Jerusalem or Jesus comforts the weeping women of Jerusalem, or Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem).

This doesn’t at first sight to be so different. But the emphasis is now on the women  instead of on Jesus.

Jesus dies on the Cross

This is now the eleventh Station. I don’t know why, but somehow this is significant. It should be the Twelfth Station. It is the one at which we always kneel. However, Donna Liane offered an explanation and explained why it seems significant:

*“It’s the emphasis upon the parts. There are equal parts or divisions which culminate at the 12th station (an even number.) The two extra stations are additions which reflect on the other two significant moments after He dies. 

They are part of Mary’s suffering or passion, as relates to Jesus’ Passion. And belong also to His followers or disciples. The traditional structure echoes that of a sonnet which has three quatrains which develop the problem or story, and ends with a closing couplet. 

A sonnet is a love poem. All traditional stories spend most of their time in building up to a climax followed by a shorter denouement. That is why being the eleventh Station seems unbalanced and somehow wrong.”

Jesus is helped by Simon of Cyrene Vs. Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to Carry his Cross.

The adapted version omits the essential part “to carry His Cross”. Without this phrase added, it just sounds like a day to day event.- Simon helps Jesus.  This phrase  “to carry His Cross”  underscores the merit of Simon’s action.

New Stations that were added:

Jesus is arrested

Jesus before the Sanhedrin

Jesus is whipped and crowned

The good thief

Mary and John

Summary:

Traditional Stations of the Cross      Vs.

Let’s make up our own Stations.

First Station:

          Jesus is condemned to Death

                                                                      Jesus is Arrested

          Jesus Bears His Cross

                                                                      Jesus before the Sanhedrin

Third Station

          Jesus Falls the First Time

                                                                      Jesus Before Pilate

Fourth Station:

          Jesus Meets His Afflicted Mother

                                                                      Jesus is Whipped and Crowned

Fifth Station:

          Simon Helps Jesus to Carry the Cross

                                                                      Jesus Carries the Cross

Sixth Station:

          Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus

                                                                      Jesus is helped by Simon of Cyrene

                                                                      Jesus Dies on the Cross

Twelfth Station:

          Jesus Dies on the Cross

                                                                     Jesus is Buried

Thirteenth Station:

          Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross

Fourteenth Station:

          Jesus is laid in the Sepulchre

 

This is another sign of things to come.

Expect many more changes and manipulations.

The changes to the Mass are coming. Have your eyes open! Do not be deceived.

Listen carefully to any new ways of expressing thing. The language can be easily manipulated to change the meaning.

We are getting very close to the fulfilment of more prophecies:

They are slowly but surely removing our Blessed Mother from the scene. They left her at the foot of the Cross, but omitted her meeting Jesus on the Way of the Cross.

Jesus, Son of God, suffering and dying for our salvation has been transformed into the story of a man being crucified.

         

“We adore thee of Christ and we praise Thee

Because by Thy Holy Cross

Thou hast redeemed the world”.

Have mercy on us, Lord have mercy in us!

Comments of other Crusaders, to whom I sent the draft:

(Crusader L) “ no adoring the Cross.: Because of the Cross You have redeemed the world”. No mention of redemption. 

No asking for mercy either. I was petrified.. CHURCH HAS FALLEN

St. Catherine of Sienna: We have had enough of exhortations to be silent!

Cry out with a hundred thousand tongues. I see the world is rotten because of Silence”

Donna Liane: It made me feel sad just reading about it!  It was like they butchered them! 

If they feel they can change a long held tradition and “improve” then what’s to stop them doing it to the Gospel or doctrine or any other thing? It’s pride that makes them feel they can improve anything! It’s wrong! 

*Yes “Jesus dies” should be 12th (Station) I think I can explain why. (see insert above under Stations that are renamed and/or renumbered – Jesus dies on the Cross’)

Tonight’s Reading

The Lord supplies my daily bible reading and tonight, being Easter, when I opened and read Psalm 114, as it is numbered in my bible, ( some versions numbered differently) the connection was very obvious; strong & powerful. The strength of the connection reminded me of Jesus presence: loving and strong. In fact, I felt He was there.

(The CTS new Catholic Bible 2007)

Psalm 114 (Hebrew psalm 116a) Verses 1-9

Rescue me from Death

Alleluia!!

I love the Lord for he has heard the cry of my appeal; for he turned his ear to me in the day when I called him.

They surrounded me, the snares of the death, with the anguish of the tomb. They caught me, sorrow and distress.  I called on the Lord’s name. Oh Lord my God deliver me!

How gracious is the Lord and just! Our God has compassion! The Lord protects the simple hearts. I was helpless so he saved me.

Turn back, my soul, to your rest for the Lord has been good; he has kept my soul from death (my eyes from tears) and my feet from stumbling.

I will  walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the Living.

Thank you, Lord. I love you, Lord.

Happy, Holy Easter

We do not own this day, this day forever owns us.

John 11: 25-26

Jesus said to her:

I am the Resurrection and the Life: he that believeth in Me, although he be dead, shall live and everyone that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever.

Believest thou this?
