Eve of the Birth of John the Baptist

The second manifestation of the Spirit of Elijah


Disclaimer



From miguel de Portugal


The Gospel of yesterday's Mass - Matthew 6: 19-23 - have some interesting points that we feel should be highlighted.

The first one -

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.

It is time to take a hard and long look at what is our "treasure" to make sure that our heart is where it should be. After crossing the veil is too late to "reposition" one's heart.

The second one -

The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light; but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.

When one possesses the often mentioned "eyes to see", one's eye is sound and the whole body will be filled with light. Conversely, when one is blind to the physical and spiritual realities that surround him/her the, whole body will be in darkness.

Now then, when we meet someone in darkness, we must offer the light. If the light/peace is refused, Jesus already told us what to do:

And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house. And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. [Matthew 10:12-14]

Remember, let us not try to be more Christian than Jesus Christ - that is arrogance and arrogance comes from satan.

However, if  whosoever did not receive you at that time comes back a day, or ten years, later and ask you for that light/peace, we must offer it then, and the prior rejection is swept away by the oceans on Divine Mercy.

and again....

My son continues in his slow and very painful journey to a certain death. In spite of his condition, he insists in holding on to a job because, his condition, being as rare as it is, is not in the qualifying illnesses list for Disability pay support.

His insurance keeps cutting back the benefits he is in need of - which now is strictly pain management since there is no cure other than from God. He has a roof over his head because his mother is paying for it, otherwise he would be, literally, on the streets.

An army buddy of his decided to take Jose's situation into his hands and started a GoFundMe campaign - thus the army photo being used, which is quite a few years old. [He is the young man with glasses in the forefront.]

As you know,  we are not connect with any Social Media system by Divine design, so we are appealing to you to make his plea available through your Social Media links. The page may be found  Here.

Maybe there are some kind and charitable people out there who will be willing to give this former professional soldier, and Special Forces Assessment and Selection selectee, a hand.


From IW  @ USA

May the Lord's Peace be ever with you!

I hope that you will recall me.  In times past you have been both a guide and almost a confessor to me. 

I am writing in regard to a reference that you made regarding psychiatric drugs based on an article by Dr. Peter R. Breggin. (1)

I am sure you don't recall the many times I have contacted you in a state of euphoria and then desperate depression. In short, I finally found some medical assistance in that I was diagnosed as bi-polar, and am now much more ready to cope.

I have, as I mentioned before, also joined the Orthodox Church, and find my life to be "leveling out".

From  the comments that you made I got the impression that you do not approve of such psychiatric drugs.  Now I find myself in a spiritual quandary, wondering if I have done wrong and will jeopardize my soul in the long run.

I know you are busy, and I know I may have to wait for your response, but as you promised in the past, I know you will respond now.

Yours in Christ Jesus

IW

A. Of course we remember you and rejoice at the progress you have made through the Grace of God.

As we mentioned to you right after we received your communication - you have nothing to be concerned about, nor any changes need to be made in the medication you take.  We will use a very popular and well known face to illustrate a very important point.

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina was one of the greatest miracle worker on the 20th Century and the healing through his hands were, and are, legendary.  What most people are not aware of is that, many times, some of those who came to him to be healed would be sent, by Padre Pio, to see a physician instead of working a miraculous cure.

Why? Because there are some physical illness which are 100 % organic and need to be treated  accordingly.  We have learned through the Grace of God, and the experiences with which He has Graced us, that most illnesses are due to spiritual dysfunction (2); however, the ones which are not, like yours, need to be treated through traditional or alternative medicine.

When there is an actual organic illness that requires medical attention, and an apparently miraculous cure is worked by someone without deferring to God, the illness, after a while, reappears with a vengeance. [We are not referring here about true miraculous cures which God dispenses at His pleasure because in those cases, He not only removes the problem but He also corrects whatever organic problem caused it.]

A good and honest MD diagnostician can help the patient determine which is the best route to follow.

Our original comments strictly reflected our concern about the "Pill Dispensing Happy" physicians and the "Desirous For A Quick Fix Happy" patients.  As we often say - we must think and, with the Illumination of the Holy Spirit of God, then safely navigate through life.

May God continue to Bless you and continue to guide you to a good physical and mental health.

...and, Thank God!, finally....

House passes most ambitious congressional effort yet to combat opioids epidemic

The House of Representatives on Friday overwhelmingly passed the largest opioids legislative package in recent history, with provisions directing federal agencies to prioritize training, support recovery centers and conduct research on multiple fronts to help deal with the growing crisis.

The package, which passed 396-14, comprises 58 House-approved individual bills. The vote marks Capitol Hill's biggest move so far to address the opioids crisis, which killed 42,000 people in 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Comment: As we were saying above "....our concern is about the 'Pill Dispensing Happy' physicians and the 'Desirous For A Quick Fix Happy' patients." and, hopefully, this bill will finally address this most serious problem after a few 'Pill Dispensing Happy' physicians are heavily fined for malpractice.

You are now invited to be an instrument in keeping this Ministry ongoing.

Remember...

For whosoever shall give us to drink a cup of water in My Name, because we belong to Christ:
amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Mark 9:40]

and that

Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward.... [Matthew 10:41]
