For those members of the Focused Prayer
In case that you may have difficulty in verbalizing your request for
which our group is offering the Chaplet of Mercy every day, this is how
we do it:
Eternal Father, invoking the Communion of Saints, I
offer the Chaplet of Mercy that Your Son requested through Sister
Faustina, in union with the members of the
Focused Prayer Group, seeking Your
Mercy for those members of the clergy, religious orders and hierarchy
who are sincerely striving to serve You as You Will, yet, are being
choked by the smoke of satan within the Church. Grant them the
inspiration, consolation, illumination and protection that they so
desperately need so that they may be able to provide the valid
Sacraments to Your children who are seeking them throughout the world.
When we offer such invocation I feel that is coming from the very core
of my being and never fails to move me profoundly.
Yesterday's Mass Gospel....
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of
my Father who is in heaven. Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never
knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ [Mt 7:21&23]
From verse 22....
Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we
not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your
name perform many miracles?’
....we can clearly see that those individuals
really thought that they were doing the will of the Father even though,
obviously, they were not.
How is that possible? Denial makes it possible! They refuse to see the
obvious signs/clues from their behavior that were indicating to them
that they were on denial.
Then, one may very validly ask: How
can I then be sure that I am not on
a denial state and in the end I will be cast with the evildoers?
Believe it or not, as complex the answer to that question
seems to be, God can make it crystal clear and quite simple - as He did
for me today.
If one is sincerely open to hear and evaluate constructive criticism in
order to possibly improve oneself - spiritually and physically - one is
not on denial. When one refuses to see what is quite obvious in
spiritual or physical domain, that is concrete proof of being on denial.
What should one do when faced with someone on steadfast denial? The
moment the denial is confirmed by steadfast and hollow arguments, just
walk away. Just as He said:
If anyone will not welcome you or listen
to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.

As a matter of public record: The total
amount that we have received in royalties from the four books that we
published through Amazon has been less than $100.00.
Sadly enough, if we had published a book relating that Jesus told me
that aliens are real or that
there is proof that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had children or that we could prove that the
Bible approved all forms of sexual encounters, Amazon would have had to
set up a special division just to handle the orders that would rain in.
The consolation for the lack of sales comes from the knowledge that:
....small is the gate and narrow the road
that leads to life, and only a few find it. [Matthew
...and that God is indeed in control!
of you who are not extending
a hand to keep this Ministry ongoing
and are financially able to do so
benefiting from it, are now
being encouraged to do
