We hear a lot about the Antichrist in the Bible. I used to think that the Antichrist are the Muslims. Yet after studying the Bible and listening to some preachers, I came to realize it's something else.Who do you think the Antichrist is? How can we…Continue

I love how elders in the wolf pack are respected and the pace is set according to THEM, not the strongest, or the fittest. Just a reminder to visit our sick, call them on the phone and ask them how THEY are doing. Then LISTEN to what they have to say. Many miss conversing with others.
Happy Tuesday morning everyone!
The 14th of this month makes us especially think of those we love and how to best show them how much we care. In fact though, we're probably all doing that throughout the year. I remember my dad telling us with regard to Mothers' Day that we should treat our mom as if every day were Mothers day.
I like to make February a month long celebration of caring, even to strangers. When I walk into a store I greet the cashiers with a 'good morning ladies/folks'. I remember to thank the taxi/bus drivers. If I'm out for my walk and I pass someone and our eyes meet, I nod or smile. Things like that. You know, like holding the elevator for an elderly/disabled person.
People are so angry these days and some feel as if they are invisible to the rest of us. I thing a smile, a bit of recognition, ... those kinds of things can go a long way. Anyone with any thoughts on this?
Yesterday I heard the most beautiful song, one that continues to play in my mind even today. I pray many more will hear this prayerful plea to 'get back down on your knees and keep on praying'.
I believe for those who are weary, it uplift you. For those who are sad, it will bring light. And for those who have become numb to the world around us, it will bring an awakening of our talents and the need to use these talents as full disciples of God. We are called to spread the Good News.

Received this posting today on Facebook from my cousin:
****Please pray for our dear friend Ryan Snyder and his family. Ryan is in ICU with organ failure and a heart that is functioning only at 10% and the reason is not yet known. He is a single father and one of he best fathers I've ever met. I have never met a less-selfish, more loving father than he is to his son Brayden. These two need each other. Miracles happen and we need one now.****
Amy said he is now in an induced coma and they are hoping to transfer him to another hospital. I pray he is at the clinic in cleveland.
thank you. I posted the prayer request on the facebook site Saint Padre Pio and Catholic Ministry - the response has been humbling.
Jesus is King of the Universe - The Coronation
"This is the King" - Luke 23:38
"The long awaited day for the King's Coronation had come. The stage was set for a victorious arrival as the King arrived to begin His rule. Would the celebration be worthy of the King?
The King's throne is a criminal's cross, His royal crown is filled with sharp thorns, painfully lodged into His skull. He wears no robe; all His clothes have been stripped, His brutally beaten back rests against the hard wood of the cross. The scepter in His hand is not a graceful staff but rather a nail. His courtiers are condemned criminals, one on each side, His coronation toast consists of "sour wine." (Luke 23:36)
The King is about to deliver His coronation address. He stands erect, making blood gush from the nail wounds in His feet. He speaks: 'Father, forgive them, they do not know what they are doing' ( Luke 23:34). His subjects greet His remarks with 'jeering' (Luke 23:35), blasphemy,(Luke…
The Catholic Spring - The Sleeping Giant
As you know members of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Staff have called for a Catholic Spring and members such as John Podesta have already created organizations to bring about the so called Spring. Hillary Clinton has said that “Religious Beliefs have got to change.” If we read carefully the Democrat Party’s Platform we would see that the Catholic Spring is a goal of her Administration. Their understanding of Catholic Spring is a revolution against the Teachings of Jesus Christ promulgated through the Catholic Church. Hillary and her Campaign Staff want to persuade Catholics to turn away from these Teachings so that they can lead the country into a deeper reality of sin then it is now experiencing. In the Book of Galatians St. Paul said: “ I am astonished at the promptness with which you have turned away from the One who called you and have decided to follow a different version of the Good News. (Gal. 1:6)” An example of this is the Fake…
