Yesterday we had our first day of triple digit weather and it is going to continue the rest of the week. We (even the dog) went to our parish this evening to pray with the Knights of Columbus. It was a blessing. I brought doggie a porkhide chewy and she was a little emoticon . How are things with everyone?

emoticon Not ready for summer, but it won't matter; it will be here anyway. I'm still really enjoying my Lord Teach me to Pray sessions. If you have them in your area I would recommend them. They have really made it easier to understand what God is saying to me. Just came back from a Knights of Columbus novena at the parish. It is nice to gather together to pray. Hope you all had a great day!

Blessings, Diana

Hi,

I have put on a couple of pounds. I need to exercise more. I have been slacking because it's getting really hot here on walks, but today was out at 7 with the Husky. I usually walk with my neighbor and his Chiwennie but missed him today because he was out at 6am to beat the heat. What are you up to today?

Blessings, Diana

I'm sure many of you got this email too but I wanted to get the information out there:

Evangelist Franklin Graham sent an email and posted a Facebook message to his social media followers over the past weekend, asking them to pray for President Donald Trump on June 2.

In his Facebook post, Graham wrote:

"Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump. President Trump's enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God.

This is a critical time for America. We're on the edge of a precipice," Graham continued. "Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President. We know that God hears and answers prayer. He can soften hearts and change minds. He is all-powerful, and He rules over the affairs of nations. The Bible instructs us to pray for those in authority, 'that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior' (1 Timothy 2:2-3).

On June 2, we ask that pastors would lead their congregations in praying for the President, that Sunday schools and other groups would join together and pray, and that individuals and families across the country would have a special focus on praying for the President that day.

Would you let me know in the comments below if you commit to pray with us? And will you share this on your social media platforms so that we can have as many people as possible praying.

'For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.' (Ephesians 6:12)."

250 Christian leaders quickly answered the call:

"We the undersigned are calling for June 2 to be a special Day of Prayer for the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, that God would protect, strengthen, embolden, and direct him.

We believe our nation is at a crossroads, at a dangerous precipice. The only one who can fix our country's problems is God Himself, and we pray that God will bless our president and our nation for His glory.'"

I don't know if Rev. Graham realizes it, but he picked a date that follows the day of a waning crescent moon. As many of you know, we (The U.S. Grace Force) have been praying, for over two years, St. Patrick's Lorica prayer for President Trump each month during the waning crescent moon, ever since we were made aware of a nationwide campaign by witches(estimates are that witches in the USA now number 1.5 million) to put a hex on the President. You can read about the witches' campaign HERE.

U.S. Grace Force Joins Forces
I've been saying, for a while now, that we are quickly heading toward a "D-Day of Spiritual Warfare." Not surprisingly, June 2nd is the Sunday just before the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Normandy, France, June 6, 1944. I don't know if this is setting up as "the" D-Day of Spiritual Warfare, but I do believe the U.S. Grace Force must answer the call to join forces with our Christian brothers and sisters for this epic spiritual battle on June 2nd.

Here's the U.S. Grace Force Special Ops Mission for Sunday, June 2:

On June 2, pray the Lorica Prayer For the President (see HERE).
On June 2, bring your prayer for the President to Sunday Mass with you.
On June 2, light a votive candle in church, before the Blessed Mother, for the President.
On June 2, offer your daily rosary for the President.
On June 2, if you have one of the Green Scapulars I have given out, hold it while you pray for the President. Those particular Green Scapulars were touched to a Relic of the True Cross that was rescued from a bombed out castle during the original D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.


Blessings, Diana

after college, i left the church. when i got married it was outside of the church. 11 years later ,y non-catholic hubby made a comment about people having issues or feeling lost when they dont follow church teachings and i started going back, at first it was because i was seeking even though i did not know what for i was looking. in july we will have been married 19 years. my hubby asked me tonight if i would like to get our marriage blessed. i was happy to hear him say that even though i was disappointed that i never thought of asking him before, i dont know what is involved, but will call the chruch office this week and find out,

It sounds like you all had a nice Easter. I went to the Sat. vigil mass; it was so beautiful. Our Easter meal went really well. I was not prepared this year and shopped for most my food for the meal on Easter. Everything I needed was on sale; it was one of the easiest stress free holiday meals I ever cooked. I went to mass today and there were so few people there than usual; Easter must have taken up all their energy, lol. I'm looking forward to my Lord Teach Me to Pray class this Wed. We did not meet during Holy Week as there was so much going on. Hope you are blessed by the Lent series you are undertaking. God is good!

Blessings, Diana

Hey Tammy... my husband and I did the Best Lent series. We spent each afternoon listening to them. Nothing too difficult, just putting your faith in action. Our Mass was wonderful. I just felt such joy being there and then we had a nice lunch at my step sister's house.

Happy, healthy Monday Critters!!!

According to the Bible, Jesus's followers and family held a vigil for him outside his tomb, awaiting his foretold resurrection. Biblical references to the vigil are fairly terse, but accounts of the burial are Matthew 27:45–57; Mark 15:42–47; Luke 23:44–56; John 19:38–42.

"So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph saw where he was laid." Mark 15:46–47.

Holy Saturday...Holy Saturday is the day in the Christian liturgical calendar that celebrates the 40-hour-long vigil that the followers of Jesus Christ held after his death and burial on Good Friday and before his resurrection on Easter Sunday. Holy Saturday is the last day of Lent and of Holy Week, and the third day of the Easter Triduum, the three high holidays before Easter, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.

Rooke (n.d.) states:

But on closer examination, the definition of adultery in much of the Hebrew Bible is one-sided. Men did not have to be faithful to one woman. They could have more than one wife (Deut 21:15), and even for married men, sleeping with unmarried or unbetrothed women did not count as adultery (Exod 22:16-17, Deut 22:28-29). Only men who slept with another man’s wife or fiancée could be punished for adultery, along with the woman concerned (Deut 22:22-26). But a woman had to be faithful to her husband alone and was expected to be a virgin until she married (Deut 22:13-21). This points to a society that valued men above women, in which men had social and political power and women’s role was to serve men’s interests.

Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter. Christians remember it as the day of the Last Supper, when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and established the ceremony known as the Eucharist. The night of Maundy Thursday is the night on which Jesus was betrayed by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane.

I UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE IN THE GOSPEL ABOUT LET THOSE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. BUT YOUR RESPONSES DID NOT EXPLAIN "WHAT ABOUT THE MAN" WHO SHE WAS ADULTERING WITH. BUT THANKS ANYWAYS.

Jesus was known for being kind to women, children and others on the fringe of the society. by making him rule on a cruel punishment for a woman they thought they were presenting him with a lose-lose situation. if he said stone her, he would look cruel to those he had been given compassion to. if he said to give her a lesser or no punishment then they could condemn him for not upholding the law. by saying only the sinless should throw the 1st stone, he beat their challenge.

Hi Everyone,

How you are all doing well. I'm looking forward to Holy Thursday mass. Marrrbo: I was just reading that passage not too long ago. I also wondered about the man's fate. I was impressed by how Jesus' actions were so gracious, patience, and deliberate. He sets a new standard for the stoning law by saying those without sin can cast the first stone. It's like a teachable moment and he is just conducting his lesson. When he writes in the dirt I think it was the sins of those around him. Finally he simply tells her that if no one condemned her neither did he and lets her go. Thanks for bringing that up.

I am wondering why, when the gospel was about the woman who committed adultery, was the man not held accountable for anything. I don't know why, as old as I am, I am just now questioning this.

Way to go starting that novena. Last night we went to our charismatic meeting Alive in Christ and they did the Passion viewed through Mary's eyes. It was the first time we have seen it and it was a blessing. We wrote down some things that came to mind that we need to bring to God and nailed that paper to the cross provided at the meeting. When we were doing that the verse came to me that God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. To some people that act might of seems useless or futile but nothing done in faith can fall into that category. Since then when things come to my mind that aren't pleasing to Christ I mentally nail it to the cross. God is good!

Blessings, Diana

i have not been keeping up with my praying for parish families although an idea did pop into my head. there are so many individuals, couples and families that do a lot for the parish. i was thinking of sending them anonymous "thank you" cards to recongnize them for what they do. i am not sure if this would be an encouragement or make them fell weird. there are so many that work hard and but in a lot of time. some look tired and worn out. of course that could be season or lent related. but i would love to make them feel apprciated.

Thank you for explaining why the statues are veiled. I had a vague idea but that was helpful. My favorite way of meditating on the Passion is the Sorrowful Mysteries. I have started to use them when I pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy as well. Greetings to all!

The statues at church are all covered up with purple fabric..
Passiontide is upon us and and we enter the two holiest weeks of the year. At this time, Christ calls His Church, each and every member, to be focussed on His Passion. His Passion is the font of all grace and mercy, of all life and salvation; the means whereby He conquered death and opened the gates of Heaven. The statues are now veiled, calling us to mourn and meditate constantly on His Passion. The saints teach there is no exercise more profitable for the salvation of the soul and to advance in virtue and grace. We have many ways by which to meditate upon the Passion, yet the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most perfect place and means. It bears the greatest fruit, for there His Passion and Death are actually made present. To really participate at the Mass means to believe what is truly taking place and then uniting oneself to that. This takes great faith, effort, silence and contemplation - to move beyond the visible to the great invisible mysteries that God makes present. This Mystery is inexhaustible, for the Passion of Christ is the greatest work of God's love.

Hi Everyone,

In November of last year I blogged about St. Jude. If anyone has praise reports they want to share regarding prayers St. Jude has answered could you go to my Spark page, click on my blog, and add them to the comment section. We have been quite busy during Lent. We are taking a St. Ignatius prayer certification that is suppose to deepen your relationship with Christ. We have only had one class so far but my daughter and I are so excited about it. Apparently, it is something put out through the diocese throughout the country. Hope all is well with you.

Blessings, Diana
