Mother Mary said at Fatima: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the sure way which will lead you to God." St. Thomas Aquinas said: "The things we love tell us who we are!" With that in mind, I will try to post each day something about Our Blessed Lady, items about the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and public domain Catholic books too! I pray you enjoy my ministry!
Below are two albums of pictures that I created:
1. Our grand daughter Adrianna.

Day of Repentance for All Nations 9/14/13
Day of Repentance for All Nations
September 14th, 2013 (Yom Kippur)
God bless you for your
"work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus
Christ in the sight of our God and Father." (1 Thessalonians 1: 3).
Lord is awakening His Bride so she can make herself ready. The Holy
Spirit is speaking "repentance" to many in the body of Christ at this
time as a key process to grow in Christ and to trigger His help. As we
see human tragedies all around us, governments failing, fierce, unusual
storms, steep moral declines and increasing darkness, we sense that we
are in the end times. The good news is that the Lord is our hope and
always our strong tower and there are many examples in Scripture where
He responds to those who repent.
year, God willing, during the approximately 24-25 hours beginning at
sunset on Friday, September 13, 2013, and ending on sundown Saturday,
September 14, 2013 there will be thousands of events at the grassroots
level across many denominations and nations on this next Day of
Repentance. The event will coincide with Yom Kippur, the Day of
Atonement. What had earlier been called the "national day of repentance"
has become a global exercise of unity in the body of Christ, in effect a
Day of Repentance for All Nations.
writing to encourage you to participate and connect with others in your
community now to join together at some point during this "holiest day
of the year" in Hebrew tradition. Seek the Holy Spirit, read Scriptures
such as Psalm 51, or Revelation 3:19-21, or use the resources on the NDR
website as an outline of a program for your family, your group or your
church. We encourage you to connect with other believers in
order to include as many believers as possible in your community. Like
pure worship, sincere repentance crosses denominational barriers and
builds unity in the body of Christ.
a home, in a church, you may wish to begin and end with worship, giving
plenty of time for silence and soul-searching. It's not about judgment;
we've all fallen short of the glory of God. If we confess our sins, He
is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. Intercessory prayers for repentance act like a
"spiritual cultivator." They till the thistle-laden, rocky places and
hard pathways, causing the hard soil of a person, family or nation to be
transformed into good fertile soil, receptive to the Seed, the Word of
Day of Repentance is set to coincide with Yom Kippur, the Hebrew Day of
Atonement. The event taking place on Yom Kippur in no way is meant to
preempt or replace what Yom Kippur means for the Jewish people, but is
meant to honor the Jewish people's divinely mandated calendar [Lev
23:1-2], and to honor the holiness and seriousness of that day.[Lev
23: 26-31]. It also honors the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.
[Romans 1:16]. The Lord Himself said [Leviticus 23:27- 31] that the Day
of Atonement would be a "holy convocation", a day to "afflict" one's
soul, to do no work; a "statute forever throughout your generations in
all your dwellings."
this 24-25 hour period we suggest you set aside time for prayer
specifically for the Jewish people, who are now under attack spiritually
and physically. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray also about the
place of Yeshua in history: past, present and future. Thank the Living
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that 2 Chronicles 7:14 which applies to
Israel primarily, but also now for us believers is a way to heal all
nations through our sincere prayers of repentance for ourselves, for our
families, for our nations.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
