Divine Mercy Sunday - Snuggle close to His Merciful Heart

Divine Mercy Sunday

"My daughter do whatever is within
your power to spread devotion to my mercy.
  Tell aching humanity to
snuggle close to my merciful heart
and I will fill it with peace
." (Jesus to Saint Faustina)

Jesus spoke to St. Faustina on September 24, 1936 saying, “Tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. …The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.” (St. Faustina Diary, 699)

On the first Sunday after Easter of the Jubilee Year 2000, at the Mass for the canonization of St. Faustina Kowalska, Pope John Paul II proclaimed to the world that “from now on throughout the Church this Sunday will be called Divine Mercy Sunday.”
If you have been away from the Sacrament of Reconciliation for any period of time, 2 weeks or 40 years, this is the day to Come Home, find comfort and "snuggle close to His Merciful Heart."

Father Gary Thomas - Ministry of Exorcism

Father Gary Thomas speaks about the personification of evil in the world, and how we can protect ourselves by not opening the doorway to this evil and by staying close to Jesus especially in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Talk was given April 2016 at Colorado State University in the Grand Ballroom of the Lory Student Center.

Our Lady of Pompei Church, Malta and an Ornate Monstrance

I have been blessed to own a Church Supply/Catholic Devotional store for the past 15 years.  I have also been blessed to run this store out of my home, off my computer.  Thanks be to God.  

Many of my church supply items are sold to parishes overseas.  

This ornate brass Monstrance now resides at Our Lady of Pompei Church, Victoria, Gozo (Malta).

It was a pleasure to work with the buyer of this item who graciously donated it to the church and then sent me this beautiful picture. 

 "Come, follow Me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." (Mark 1:17)

Consecration To The Sacred Heart of Jesus

On the First Friday of each month, Mass at the Carmelite Monastery on Highway 1 in Carmel ends with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and a prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus of all of our families.  The video is a taping of the prayer.  Text of the prayer is below video.  

Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most sweet Jesus, humbly kneeling at your feet, we renew the consecration of our family to  your Divine Heart.  Be our King forever!  In you we have full and entire confidence.  May your Spirit penetrate our thoughts, our desires, our words and our works.  Bless our undertakings, share in our joys, in our trials, and in our labors.  Grant us to know you better, to love you more, to serve you without faltering.

By the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Peace, set up your kingdom in our country.  Enter closely into the midst of our families and make them your own through the solemn enthronement of your Sacred Heart, so that soon one cry may resound from home to home:  “May the triumphant Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved, blessed and glorified forever.”  Honor and glory be to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary!  Sacred Heart of Jesus, protect our families.  Amen

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception - December 8

 Immaculate Conception - Murillo photo ImmaculateConceptionMurillo_zpsae282b6b.jpg
The Immaculate Conception is one of four Marian Dogma’s of the Catholic Church.  A dogma is a principle that is considered by the Church to be an infallible divine revelation, a truth of the Church.  The other three Marian dogma’s are:  Mary’s divine motherhood, Mary’s perpetual virginity, and Mary’s assumption into heaven. 
Some people think that the term the Immaculate Conception refers to Christ’s conception in Mary’s womb without a human father. The Immaculate Conception means that Mary was conceived without original sin or its stain – “immaculate” means without stain.  Original sin is the deprivation of sanctifying grace.  Mary was preserved from original sin by God’s grace from the first instant of her existence, at the moment of her conception. 
The Catholic Church bases this dogma on the statement made by the Angel Gabriel when he greeted Mary by saying, “Hail full of grace!  The Lord is with you.”  (Luke 1:28) The phrase “full of grace” is a translation of the Greek word kecharitomene.  The following video taken from "Mary, A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother" by Dr. Edward Sri explains Mary's Immaculate Conception and shows how this teaching is supported by Scripture.
