NOVEMBER 1st. ALL SAINTS DAY !

November 1st is In Honor of All Saints Day and November 2 is
All Souls Day ! May we pray for ALL the departed souls
 and offer our Masses up for them in Jesus name we pray +++
It began in the early centuries remembering martyrs whose names
were unknown and who therefore did not have their own festivities.
It was introduced in Rome on May 13 -610 as "The Feast of Holy Martyrs."
by Pope Bonific IV,
The occasion was a gift of the ancient pagan temple of the pantheon
to the church by the Roman Emperor, Phocas. First celebrated on May 13,
it was transferred to Nov. 1 for the Universal Church by Pope Gregory IV
in 835. By then it included ALL SAINTS (meaning ; anyone who goes
to Heaven is considered a Saint.) 
The reason for the NEW DATE may have been a practical one. It seems
so many pilgrims came to Rome for the "Feast" that it was  moved
to the Fall when more food would be available after the harvest.
The New date spread throughout the Church. Nov. 1 ! May we 
turn on our Night Lights for ALL OUR DEPARTED LOVED
ONE'S !  May Our Lord Blessings be among you and your
families.

ANYTIME SOMEONE PLACES AN ACTION THAT CAUSES
PAIN AND SHAME FOR ONE'S OWN GAIN IS ALWAYS
LOOKED DOWN UPON !

Hush Hush , by Nichole Nordeman


Faces in the Crowd

The event is about to take place, and many people
have come from far off places, to see the event
they have been waiting for !
I see many people in the stadium , taking their
places with excitement !
The National Anthem begins and people
begin standing and looking up
towards their flag.
They place their hands over their hearts
to show honor of greatness, and
thankfulness to the Country they love.

Suddenly a team player bends one knee
to the ground with his head
facing downward.

I see a soft glow from the stands
up in the crowd. A woman
looking up with tear drops
running down her cheeks.
She quietly speaks " I have a
story to tell."
She remains standing in honor of
Our Flag.

I see another team player bending His
knee with his head looking downward.

I look over to the distance and I see
a young man waving a flag from his
wheelchair, ever so proudly ! " I have
a story to tell." He remains
looking up with a smile.

I see another team player bending the
knee again , with another team player
touching his shoulder and still looking
downward.

A large glow of people arise in
the crowds !
I noticed they were from a school.
They were all respectfully
looking towards Our Flag
with hands over their hearts
in saying "We have a story to tell."

I  then see a small child next
to his parents. The child is singing
along the National Anthem proudly !
He has his hand on his heart.
He smiles up to his father in asking
"Does my big brother see me from
heaven ?"
The Father's  tears began rolling down
from his face,  He  holds his son's small
hand, and gently answers
"Yes , he see's you my son."

I see another team player bending
the knee , only this team player
had a glow around him.
He was looking downward with tear
drops falling to the ground.
He stood up looking at Our Flag
he always loved.
I went over to him and softly
spoke to him "Do you have a story
to tell ?"

The faces in the crowd knows
their are many stories in the
midst of Our Flag.
The stories are silently
flowing among the people
across the stadium and
field. 
They know Our Flag is a
great connection of one's
story to another.
They know UNITIED they
STAND under ONE NATION
UNDER GOD.
The people know the HISTORY
that is built BEHIND THAT 
FLAG " OUR FLAG " that
will forever STAND AMONG
IT'S PEOPLE !

GOD BLESS AMERICA ! by Lori Foster

IT'S EVERYONE'S WORLD !

Where are the Children ?
Who are the Children?
They are God's Children.
We see their faces in the crowd.
Our hearts are wounded for their pain.
Our stomachs ache for their hunger.
Our hands feel helpless for their touch.
We see the cry from the Children.
The tears in their mother's eyes.
The helplessness from their father's hands
Where can we ALL begin ?
We turn to prayer for God's help.
We will follow God's plan.
Reaching out of love will touch them.
Showing hand and hand will mend them.
Giving our time through prayer will
heal them.
It's the laughter of the children we hear !
It's the smile of the mother we see !
It's the gratefulness of the father's hope.
That is what this world is all about !
It's the being of ALL people.
that we say life does matter.
We are your Brothers and
Sisters , pouring out our
love and care , 
to show this is
Everyone's World
Yes ! This is your world too !
message of love, 
by Lori Foster

Dear One's, I wrote this poem on Oct. 3, 1994
for Rwanda Africa ,  after the
genocide war ! This poem is 
dedicated to people of suffering
and is given to the
World as well !
Our Lord sees the cries of His people !
Our Lord hears Us and He loves
each of Us.  He wants us to HELP
those who are in pain, sorrow, and
loneliness !  We are to give of ourselves
in anyway possible.
We are to go into Our Cities in Need !
We are to go into Our Big and Small towns.
See where there is neglect and  the battered.
The one's whom feel left out and lost.
Show them the goodness of Our Lord
Clothe them, feed them, bring them
uplifting words !
Show them they matter and TOGETHER
WE WILL TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME
to help build each other UP !
maybe that person is your neighbor,
a co-worker, a person in your own family.
We are to stay in Unity with them and
not abandon them.
We are to help them seek out places
of kindness and love.

LOOKING UP TO OUR FLAG & THE WAVE OF THE FLAG

MY QUESTION ABOUT BENDING THE KNEE TOWARDS OUR AMERICAN FLAG !
WHY WOULD ANYONE USE OUR FLAG TO PROTEST IN THE FIRST PLACE ?
WHY WOULD ANYONE USE A SPORTING EVENT TO MAKE A POINT ?
WE NEED TO TAKE REAL COURAGE AND GO WHERE THE PROBLEM IS TO FIX
A PROBLEM ! DON'T USE AND ABUSE IMPORTANT THINGS & EVENTS
FOR ONE'S OWN GAIN !

Dear One's Bending the knee
is a GREAT DIVISION AND
DISRESPECT for our Country !
In order to make change , or
fix a problem, one has to
go to where  the problem is,
in order to have good results.
We  are to 
literally show that person
or people how much we
TRULY CARE ! 
It will take COURAGE,
TIME, AND EFFORT !
If those who feel something
NEEDS TO CHANGE 
for the BETTER then
go physically, mentally,
and spiritually to the 
PEOPLE IN NEED.
Then and ONLY then
THINGS CAN and
WILL IMPROVE.
Bending a knee
shows no given
strength nor effort in
LOVE OR CARE !

THE WAVE OF THE FLAG:

BLESSED MARY , MOTHER OF OUR LORD, LOVES U.S.A /
SHE LOVES OUR FLAG ! She is asking US ALL to  cherish Our
Beautiful Flag of GREATNESS AND HONOR ! The stories & events 
we have , STANDS  behind Our Flag and are held ever so closely
to THE SACRED HEART OF  JESUS !
OUR WAVE OF THE FLAG IS OUR GIVEN
KISS TO THE HEAVENS!
OUR WAVE OF THE FLAG IS OUR THANKS TO
OUR FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN 
WHO SAID "YES TO THE CALL OF GREAT HONOR"
OUR WAVE OF THE FLAG  UNITES US AND MAKES US PROUD 
TO LIVE
IN A COUNTRY OF FREEDOM !
OUR WAVE OF THE FLAG REMINDS US OF THE HIGH
COST OF STRONG , COURAGEOUS , 
BEAUTIFUL LIVES TAKEN.
THE WAVE OF THE FLAG IS A KISS
OF HONOR TO THE FAMILIES AND 
FRIENDS WHOM LOST THEIR OWN
LOVED ONES IN BATTLE !
THE WAVE OF THE FLAG IS OUR KISS
TO JESUS TO PROTECT US !
WE STAND FOR THE FLAG IN ALL
IT'S PAIN , SUFFERING, AND GLORY!
THE WAVE OF THE FLAG IS OUR
GIVEN KISS IN SAYING "THANK YOU."
