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 -
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 -
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
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
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
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
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
at that time comes back a day, or ten years, later
ask you for that light/peace, we must offer it then, and the prior
rejection is swept away by the oceans on Divine Mercy.

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
started a GoFundMe
thus the army photo being used, which is quite a
few years old. [He is the young man with glasses in the forefront.]

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
desperate depression. In short, I
finally found some medical assistance in that I was diagnosed as
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".
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
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
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
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
May God continue to Bless you and continue to guide you to a good
physical and mental health.
