I Am Because We Are


HUMBLE PRAYER IN TIME OF OLD AGE :  Psalm 71 verses 1-20

In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your justice rescue me, and deliver me; incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to give me safety. for you are my rock and my fortress.  O my God, rescue me from the hand of wicked, from the grasp of the criminal and the violent. For you are my hope, O Lord; my trust .  O God , from my youth. ON you I depend from birth; from my mother's womb you are my strength; constant has been my hope in you. A portent: meaning ( I have become a marvel or divine dealings toward Him) but you are my strong refuge ! My mouth shall be filled with your praise, with your glory day by day.
Cast me not off in my old age; as my strength fails, forsake me not. For my enemies speak against me, and they who keep watch against my life take counsel together. They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for there is no one to rescue him." O God , be not far from me; my God, make haste to help me. Let them be put to shame and consumed who attack my life; let them be wrapped in ignominy and disgrace who seek to harm me. But I will always hope and praise you ever more and more. My mouth shall declare your justice, day by day your salvation. Though I know not their extent: meaning ( God's acts of kindness toward him are more numerous than he himself realizes.) I will treat of the mighty works of the Lord; O God, I will tell of your singular justice. 
O God, you have taught me from my youth, and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds; and now that I am old and gray, O God, forsake me not Till I Proclaim your strength to every generation that is to come.  Your power and your justice. O God, reach to heaven. You have done great things; O God, who is like you ? though you have made me feel many bitter afflictions, you will again revive me; from the depths of the earth you will once more raise me.

I Am Missing You , sins against the Holy Spirit

You are in this building of some sort. Maybe it is your work place, high school, or college. You are with a group of people and you walk pass a dim lit room, however you step back to look inside the room.  The group of people whom you were with continue walking down the hallway.  You look over  towards the person whom is sitting on a wooden chair. You become curious of who he is. Suddenly he looks  up towards you and are face to face, and  your eyes meet. You are in awe for you realize  you are seeing the face of Jesus, your God !  His presence fills you up with unspeakable joy, and wonder, however you are also feeling his sorrow. You see His eyes are extremely beautiful and you can feel how much he loves you. His love is so strong and powerful , that nothing can ever measure up to Christ love. You come to realize the things of the world are less important, and the splendor of the world is no comparison to Jesus splendor - his whole being.  He whispers to you in saying " I love you unconditionally and I am missing you ! Suddenly, you see all you have been lacking without him.  His tears flow down his face and you wipe his tears with your hand.  He ask you a question " Do You Love Me ?  You answer back to him "Yes ! I love you my God, and my Lord. Jesus responds back in saying "Then dwell within me always." The same group of people come walking back down the hallway, and you see them passing by the room that you and Jesus are in.  Your whole heart is saddened for you don't want to say good-bye to Jesus.  You ask yourself a question "Do I want to follow the crowd ? Do I leave Jesus, and go with the flow? "How can I be in this world and still love Jesus?  Jesus speaks to me in saying "You are living in the world, a place of my creation- do not be of the world. Enjoy my creation and be of all that is good. Do not follow the ways of men, for mankind has given My People broken promises. Much of what the world has to offer are empty and false.  The world has pushed me out of  almost everything, and everywhere. The world has become selfish and introduces sinful ways of living. The world is wanting to present to other's to the path of sins. The world is giving the evil doings, to My People to receive. My Lord continues in saying My dear one, when you walk out the door that awaits you ; take my spirit, my heart with you. "For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it."Matthew Ch 16 verse 25.  I AM THE ONLY WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE



Matthew Ch.12 verse 31 Jesus says, " Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven" Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the "deliberate refusal" to accept God's mercy and forgiveness.

1) DESPAIRS: "Ceases ( end, halt, terminate) to hope for his personal salvation from God" is one own self not relying on the grace of the Holy Spirit.

2)PRESUMPTION: One presumes he can save himself a part from the grace of the Holy Spirit or that God will save him without conversion.

3)IMPENITENCE: Clearly resists the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing us to conversion and repentance.

4)OBSTINACY: Is a kin to impenitence, because one not only resists the grace of the Holy spirit, but willfully persists in what he knows to be GRAVE OR MORTAL SIN.

5)RESISTING DIVINE TRUTH: Is to resist that which one knows to have been revealed by the Holy Spirit to "Divine and the Truth  of the Apostolic Faith given by God "One is guilty of heresy, thereby cutting themselves off from God.  ( Apostolic; Jesus twelve Apostles)

6)ENVY: Is a sin against the Holy Spirit because it was through Satan's envy that death entered the world. When one is envious of the Spiritual Good of another he places himself on the level of Satan who wanted God's Glory for Himself, rather than humbly accepting the gifts God had given to Him.  Ezekiel Ch 28 Verses 11-19 ( One must accept the Blessings God has given him rather than look at how God has Blessed another, and desire that for himself.  Envy of another's spiritual good is a sin against the Holy Spirit in as much as it is the Holy Spirit who pours out Spiritual gifts to the faithful.

More on Why Blasphemy is Unforgivable: Matthew Ch 12 verse 32 teaches " but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
How do we reconcile this passage with our reliance on the Father's infinite love and mercy for our salvation, such that  John Ch 3 verse 16 "God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

note: Blasphemy does not properly consist in offending against the Holy Spirit in words, it consists rather in the refusal to accept the salvation which God offers to man through the Holy Spirit working through the POWER OF THE CROSS. Thus , while it is usually defined as speaking against God in this case Blasphemy is "the refusal to accept salvation.'


1) SLOTH: Equated with laziness-sadness in the presence of eternal or spiritual goods- ultimately God Himself.  example- workaholism or busy-ness boredom of attending Mass, Church services, or Praying. sin against the Sabbath.

2) ENVY: A sadness in the presence of the goodness of others- it leads us to justify the fact that we lack the goodness that others possess.

3) COVETOUSNESS: Is a disorder and excessive desire to control persons, places, things - example "The Sexual Holocaust" is the reduction of one's own and another body for self pleasure.

4) VAIN GLORY AND PRIDE: Is respecting oneself or others for the wrong reasons- example Money, high positions, to gain glory or attention in having an immoral law passed and so forth; such as abortion, same sex marriage .

5)GLUTTONY: Is an excessive preoccupation with our bodies at the cost of becoming forgetful of our souls, not only in terms of excessive eating and drinking but also in terms of excessive preoccupation with physical fitness and physical beauty.

6)LUST: Is a disorder of sexual desires of the so called "homosexual lifestyle" or the widespread phenomenon of "Living together" Lust reduces human sexuality to genitality. as a result, lust tends to distort human sexual genital activity into a form of recreation. Tragically, lust leads to a fear of fertility, and is expressed in practices such as rape , sterilization, abortion, pornography, child molestation, adultery, and divorce.

7) ANGER: Mixture of sadness and hatred in the presence of what is true. example - trying to pass an immoral law for the world to receive. The group becomes radical and angry.

The Seven Blessed Sacraments,Message of Marriage, and the Rosary

Marcus Grodi "The Early Church Fathers"
Marcus Grodi "Ten Verses I Never Saw"
WOMAN'S RIGHTS AND THE RAINBOW Jan..22, 2017 ***********
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE LORD Dec. 15, 2016************
WHERE ARE YOU MY PEOPLE Oct. 20, 2016**************

(1) BAPTISM :  Acts Ch:2 Verse 38 "Do penance: and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins." note; the life of Grace is given to you by baptism. Through baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are born in the Church.

(2)CONFESSION: Proverbs Ch :28 Verses 13 "He that hideth his sins shall not prosper; but he that shall confess and forsake them shall obtain mercy."
John Ch: 20 Verses 19-25 "Jesus Breathed on them and said; "Receive the Holy Spirit, If you forgive men's sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound. note: confession or reconciliation is asking God for forgiveness of sins, the Priest represent Jesus, and through this sacrament the Priest absolves our sins.

(3)COMMUNION:  (2 Corinthians Ch:9 Verse 15 " Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift." and John Ch 6 Verses 41-58 "Jesus is telling His Disciples " He who feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has life eternal and I will raise him up on the last day." NOTE; THE BLESSED SACRAMENT IS THE REAL BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST(Heavenly Food) . Jesus changed the bread into His Body and the wine into His Blood during THE LAST SUPPER. Christ gave this power to the twelve disciples, and Our Priest are sucessors of the disciples. Our Lords great Love for Us is shown Particularly in the Blessed Sacrament and in the Holy Communion.( Eucharist means: Thanks giving) It is our altar call every Sunday or daily.) If one is unable to receive Christ in this Holy Sacrament you will receive many graces by Our Lord in making a spiritual communion : 
O Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where you live hidden for love of me. I love you O my God. I cannot receive You in the Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen   "Lord I am not worthy that Thou should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.  NOTE: Each time we go to Mass, may we think of it , as if it's our
First Time ! May we rekindle our love to Jesus ! Our Lord wants us to have fellowship and communion together in HIM.

(4)CONFIRMATION: Hebrews Ch 6 Verses 1-3  Let us, then go beyond the initial teaching about Christ and advance to maturity, not laying the foundation all over again; repentance from dead works, faith in God,  Instruction about baptisms and laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgement. And, god permitting we shall advance! note: The Apostles not only had been confirmed ( made strong)but they also had power to confirm others. We are becoming followers and solders of Christ.

(5)MATRIMONY: Hebrews Ch 13 verse 4 "Marriage honorable in all, and the bed undefiled."
Marriage is when a woman and man are joined together in Union in Christ (becoming one)
Mark Ch 10 verse 8 "And the two are united into one flesh."  Genesis Ch 2 verses 22-24
1 Corinthians Ch 7 verses 1-6    Ephesians Ch 5 Verses 22-23  Note: God Made Marriage. Governments did not make Marriage . CHRIST BROUGHT BACK GOD'S PLAN The sacredness of marriage was restored by the God-man Jesus Christ. Christ condemned those who broke God's laws on marriage. he raised marriage to the dignity of a Sacrament. He placed marriage on the same level as Baptism, Holy Communion and the other Sacraments. he made marriage a source of GRACE .
NOTE: Going outside your marriage is a MORTAL AND GRAVE SIN. YOU MUST SEEK OUT A PRIEST TO CONFESS YOUR SIN, AND STAY AWAY FROM THAT SIN OF ABOMINATION. note: Those who look at sinful and lustful magazines, photo's of any kind of 
sexual invitation are underneath Grave Sin of adultery . A person is going outside his or her marriage if one  invites or makes advancements with  a third person; ( outside your marriage)
Remember always, Marriage is a total self gift to your spouse and your family. Jesus, laid his life for His Church a total self gift, carrying his cross up to His Death. Married couples will follow Jesus as example he gave US. We work through our difficulties TOGETHER , carry our CROSSES with each other, until our Death. May we not do this alone in our trials. May we ask Our Dear Lord for His Divine Help and His Love to Pour over Our Marriage, with His protection. 

SAME SEX (HOMOSEXUALITY) IN THE BIBLE  Leviticus Ch 18 verse 22"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is abomination meaning : ( detestable, unlawful, repulsive, wicked, sinful.)

Ezekiel Ch 16  speaks of Sodom and how God's wrath fell upon them due to their abominable ways of sin. 
 NOTE This pertains to women with women, for God is speaking about same sex activities a person who is having sexual tendencies isn't a sin in itself, however it is the ACTING upon  that is GRAVE SIN and offensive to God.  Please pray about your situation you might find yourself in and SEEK OUT A PRIEST OR PREACHER WHO CAN HELP YOU IN THE BEST WAY !

(6)HOLY ORDERS AND THE PRIESTHOOD: Acts Ch 14 verse 22 " And when they had ordained to them priests in every church ; they commended them to the Lord." note: Jesus Christ established the Catholic Priesthood Himself. Christ gives us His teachings and His grace through the priests. Therefore the priest and the priesthood are an essential part of the Catholic Church. Bishops and priests have accomplished the spread of Christianity throughout the world by following the command of Christ:( Matthew Ch 28 verses 18-20 )Jesus came forward and addressed them (His Disciples) in these words: Full authority has been given to me both in heaven and on earth; "go therefore, teach ye all  and make disciples of all the nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." and know that I am with you always, until the end of the world!"

(7)THE SACRAMENT OF THE ANOINTING OF THE SICK: James Ch 5 verse 14 "Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priest of the church." note: Sacraments accompany us on our journey from our Birth to our Death. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is the wonderful sacrament made by Jesus Christ that helps us when we NEED IT MOST, namely when we are seriously sick. We can receive this sacrament more than once, as needed. Jesus Christ had great love for the sick. We would expect Christ to Provide Special Care for the sick. St. James Epistle (Ch 5 Verses 14-15.) Is any man sick among you? Let them bring in the priests of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil, in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man. And the Lord shall raise him up; and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him."

Confessions Song by John Michael Talbot

The Woman and the Dragon , St. Michael and the Angels(scripture)

The Woman and the Dragon  Revelation Ch: 11 Verse 19 New Testament of the Bible
Then God's temple in heaven opened and in the temple could be seen the ark of the covenant. There were flashes of lightning and peals of thunder, an earthquake, and a violent hailstorm .

Ch: 12 Verses 1-5 ( this is speaking about Blessed Mary clothed in the sun and giving birth to Jesus)
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars ( the 12 Apostles and twelve tribes of Israel) Because she was with child, she wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge dragon, flaming red, with seven heads and ten horns; on his heads were seven diadems (Crowns.)  His tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, ready to devour her child when it should be born. She gave birth to a son-a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with a iron rod. Her child was caught up to God an to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days.  Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven.  The huge dragon , the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:  " Now have salvation and power come, the reign of Our God and the authority of his Anointed One. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who night and day accused them before our God. They defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. So rejoice, you heavens and you that dwell therein ! But woe to you, earth and sea, for the devil has come down upon you!  His fury knows no limits, for he knows his time is short."

When the dragon was that he had been cast down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the boy. But the woman was given the wings of a gigantic eagle so that she could fly off to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent. She could be taken care of for a year and for two and a  half years more.  The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth to search out the woman and sweep her away. The earth then came to the woman's rescue by opening its mouth and swallowing the flood which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.  Enraged at her escape, the dragon went off to make on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep God's commandments and give witness to Jesus. He took up his position by the shore of the sea.

 The ark brought to Jerusalem.1 Chronicles Ch:15 Verses 1-4 Old Testament of the Bible
David built houses for himself in the City of David and prepared a place for the ark of God, pitching a tent for it there. At that time he said "No one may carry the ark of God except the Levites, for the Lord chose them to carry the ark of the Lord and to minister to him forever. Then David assembled all Israel in Jerusalem to bring the ark of the Lord to the place which he had prepared for it. David also called together the sons of Aaron and the Levites.(The Ark of the covenant was a sacred chest which contained the stone tablets of the ten commandments of God.)
Chronicles Ch:16 Verses 1-2
They brought the ark of God and set it within the tent which David had pitched for it. Then they offered up holocausts and peace offerings to God. When David had finished offering up the holocausts and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord.

THE ARK of the old covenant contained the WRITTEN WORD of God ( Deut. Ch 10 Verse 5
THE ARK of the new testament The Virgin Mary contained the WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH. JESUS John Ch 1 (Blessed Mary is the New Ark of the Covenant.( The New Eve.)

Revelation Ch. 19 Verse 13 " and he Jesus was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood and his name is called, THE WORD OF GOD.

Blessed Mary's body and soul was taken up into Heaven.
Revelation 11:19  12:1-6      Psalm 45:10,11,12,16    1 Corinthians Ch 15:20-27
Luke Ch:1 Verses 39-56

The Hail Mary Prayer is Scripture: Luke Ch:1-Verses 28-42 ( Blest are you among women and blest is the fruit of your womb.) Hail means- to good health !

SIMEON SAID TO BLESSED MARY " And a sword will pierce your own soul too ." in the
book of Luke Ch 2 Verses 34-35

What is Prayer?  Prayer is a act of communicating with God, having a quite time with God.
What is Worship? Worship is praise and devotion to God in worship-means loving someone or something more than anyone or anything. 

Blessed Mary, the Saints, and Angels are not God, so we do not worship them- so prayer to Blessed Mary, Saints, and Angels is really asking them to intercede on our behalf, just as a friend on Earth.
St. James Ch. 5 Verses 16 " The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful"
How many of us ask someone to pray for us? We can ask Blessed Mary, the Saints, Angels to
pray for us for they are already in Heaven. They are righteous and have been Glorified in Christ once they enter into Heaven. in fact, it could be said that they are much alive than those of us on Earth.
Matthew Ch. 22 Verses 31-32 "As to the fact that the dead are raised, have you not read what God said to you, "I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob"? He is the God of the living not the dead."

We can only get to Heaven through Jesus . John Ch. 3 Verses 13-15 No one has gone up to heaven except the One who came down from there-the Son of Man (Who is in Heaven). Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up.
John Ch.14 Verse 6- 11 " I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.  If you really knew me, you would know my Father also. From this point on you know him; you have seen him." "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say show us the Father"? Do you not believe that I am the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not spoken of myself; it is the Father who lives in me accomplishing his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works I do.

Prayer to the Blessed Trinity:
The Father is my hope. The Son is my refuge. The Holy Spirit is my protector. Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity, now and forever.  Let us praise the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us bless and exalt God above all forever!  Almighty and everlasting God, to whom we owe the grace of professing the true Faith, grant that while acknowledging the glory of the eternal Trinity and adoring its unity,we may through Your majestic Power be confirmed in this faith and defended against ALL adversities; through Jesus Christ Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen

Prayer to the Holy Spirit:
Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart with Your holy gifts. Let my weakness be penetrated with Your strength this very day that I may fulfill all the duties of my state conscientiously, that I may do what is right and just.  Let my charity be such as to offend no one, and hurt on one's feelings; so generous as to pardon sincerely any wrong done to me.  Assist me, O Holy Spirit, in all my trials of life, enlighten me in my ignorance, advise me in my doubts, strengthen me in my weakness, help me in all my needs, protect me in temptations and console me in afflictions.  Graciously hear me , O Holy spirit, and pour Your Light into my Heart, my Soul, and my Mind. Assist me to live a holy life and to grow in goodness and grace. amen

Remember Always When We Sing to Jesus, it's like praying twice to God !!! Let us Sing !
Please go to the link on this blog called Break Every Chain by Jesus !! Say Yes to Him!!

Psalm 91 (Security under God's Protection)

PSALM 91  Security under God's Protection 
You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High. who abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Say to the Lord. "My refuge and my fortress (protection). My God in whom I trust." For he will rescue you from the snare of the fowler(our soul is escaped-does not let us enter into a trap) from the destroying pestilence ( evil influence) With his pinions (the outer part of wings) he will cover you, and under his wings you shall take refuge; his faithfulness is a buckler and a shield. You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day; Not the pestilence that roams in darkness nor the devastating plaque at noon. Though a thousand fall at your side, teen thousand at your right side, near you it shall not come. Rather with your eyes shall you behold and see the requital of the wicked. ( requital- you will be repaid at the resurrection. He that by faith chooses God for His protector, shall find all in him that he needs or can desire.) Because you have the Lord as your refuge; you have made the Most High your stronghold. No evil shall befall you, nor shall affliction come near your tent. For to his angels he has given command about you that they guard you in all your ways. Upon their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the asp and the viper; you shall trample down the lion and the dragon. Because he clings to me, I will deliver him; I will set him on high because he acknowledges my name.  he shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him and will show him my salvation.

Dear Ones, may this passage of  Psalm 91 be the words of Our Lord to lean on, and hold on to.
May it always remind us of Gods protection and that He places His wings (His Arms) around us when we need him the most. He brings comfort to those whom calls upon his name. May Our Lord grant you and our world  His Peace of His Love. May Our Lord Bless YOU and keep you always.
