Letter to my fellow Catholics and Christians: Be a leader, by example

I have just posted, on one of my other blogs ( My dear family and friends ) an essay entitled ” the never-ending story.” For that is what the history of the world and of man are, for each one us like those who came before us are pages and each generation are the chapters to the never- ending story. For what happens on this earth, in our Nation. and in our lives and the lives of others are our responsibility. For our world and secular society has become corrupted by greed, lust, and power, we can not put our hopes in political or social establishments, for in my cases they fuel this corruption. What I am trying to say is that if we are to at least control this corruption and my this world, our Nation, our lives and the lives of others better. Then we must change our society and as Catholics and Christians, we know we all have the divine within us, in our souls call it Faith or the Holy Spirit. So we have the strength and courage to so, It is what each one of us wants,

We have witnessed our fellow Catholics and Christians marched thousands of miles, and heard thousand speeches, and sign hundreds of petitions. in a gallant effort to resolve issues, like abortion and same-sex marriages, to little effect. We have witnessed the executions  of Catholic and Christians in the middle east, they died as martyrs for Christ and Peace. Then we hear the rattling of sabers and cry of vengeance by our fellow Catholics and Christians,  which I find a bit hypocritical because it taints the very reason they lived died for.  We must stop all this. We, each Catholics and Christians, must become leaders not by words, but by example, we be an example of our Blessed Lord’s Love, Hope, Joy, and forgiveness. We lead as examples of our Lords commandment ” to love one another as he loves us and to forgive our enemies.” If each Catholic and Christian becomes leaders, by example, then the Christians community, united. Will gain control over the corruption and change our society, and make our world, our Nation, our lives and the lives of others better. But we must decide for ourselves if this is the right thing to do and right time to do it? Our Heavenly Father gave us free will so each one us must decide for ourselves. As for I, it is the right time and right thing to do!

My dear family and friends: (5) The never- ending story

From the very beginning when the divine hand switched on the light. And the force of life manifested itself in everyone of the Divine’s creation. But there were two of his creations that he loved the most, to these creations he gave then a soul, in which he placed his Spirit within. So one who be made in his image. And he call these creations man and woman. For he gave them a mind to reason, a heart with the capacity to love, and free will so they may decide to do what is right and to do what is wrong. But the Divine one also gave both man and woman a quest; to find lasting Love, Joy, Hope, and lasting Peace.

The never-ending story, is the story of life itself. For each life, those who had lived, those who are living, and those yet to live.are only the pages of the story are the chapters of the story. Each life, page, tells if that life has improved humanity or worsen it. Each chapter, generation, tells the success or the failure for the quest. Even though the Divine one sent his only son down, not just forgive our wrongs, but to give us a commandment, a key, to achieving the quest, ” love one another one, as he loves us, and forgive those who do us wrong.” As I look about I still see the ignorance and stupidity that our ancestors stained their pages and chapters. Like the rattling of sabers, cry for revenge and the discrimination that still plagues our world.  But even though we live in a secular world and society, where greed, lust, and power are King, and everything else are subject to them. It makes one wonder if we even have gotten one step closer to fulfilling the quest.

Where or when the never-ending story comes to its conclusion, is lift in our hands, for our lives and generation that will determine that. Do we continue to be subjects to the secular king, greed, lust, and power. Continue the ignorance of discrimination, of rattling our sabers and calling for vengeance every time some other ignorant fool or nation does something wrong? Or do we leave man’s history of ignorance, where it belongs, in the past. And apply the three greatest gifts we were given, our minds, hearts, and souls, to resolving and preventing the issues and problems we all face, as individuals, as a Nation, or as a world community. We are the authors of the never-ending story.

Letter to my fellow Catholics: The Holy Trinity

Letter to my fellow Catholics: The Holy Trinity.

Letter to my fellow Catholics: The Holy Trinity

A wise man once told me, that anyone who believes in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, are my brothers and sisters. There are some Christians who have differences with us, concerning the Blessed Mother Mary, her eternal Love, comfort, and joy, she brings to us in times of troubles.He reminded me a phrase that my sister uses, that fits perfectly ” It sounds like a personal problem to me.” In other words, all Christians are my brother and sisters in Christ. But in those aspects of Faith that we must disagree on. we must agree to disagree, for the sake of Christian unity.

They is another difference with some of our fellow Christians, other then our Blessed Mother. Our Saints, they have a problem with on the dependence of our Saints, who are our guides and examples of our Blessed Lord’s teaching and life.As Catholics, if we suffer a doubt of Faith. We can not only turn to the Holy Trinity in the Mass. But we also can turn to our Blessed Mother and the Saints to help ease those doubt and strengthen our Faith. By this insuring of our Faith, it allows us Catholics to take the , by example,in uniting the Christian community.

We live in a secular world and society, where the almighty dollar is held as the highest priority and the spiritual/Religious is held as secondary.This has had an ill effect on our National moral foundation and also on the individual citizen’s moral fiber.Such hot button issues. as abortion and same sex marriages would be, noting but mute questions, If we only maintained our National foundation and the individual moral fiber.

Our Nation was design so that the explosive nature of Church and State. Would prevent the repeat the history of the English Civil war or the ending conflict of the middle east, would happen here. Our Nation by design was to govern the secular and since by design of nation dose not have the ability to govern morality, this they lift in the hands of the Churches.Who by the Constitution are best able to govern the Nation’s morality. We have, as do our fellow Christians have the Holy Spirit within our hearts. But as Catholics we also have the Love, comfort, and joy that our Blessed Mother gives to us in times of trouble and we have the guidance and examples of the Saints, that our Faith will not fail us. For our government plays games, in fact at times our congress and state houses gives the appearance of an elementary playground..

The Lady with the sweet smile: The heart’s only wish.

The Lady with the sweet smile: The heart’s only wish

The heart has

but one wish

has but one dream

the soul has but

one hope and prayer, Love

sitting upon a hilltop

with the song of the lark

that comes from the wood

or the dove that guides

upon a gentle breeze

the heart’s wish and dream

the soul’s hope and prayer

brings such beauty to life.

For the heart has

but one wish

has but one dream

the soul has but

one hope and prayer, Love.

For the sweet aroma

of the beauty rose

from the garden below

or the heather the grows up

the hill where I sit

it’s sweet smell

fills the air around me

the heart’s wish and dream

the soul’s hope and prayer

brings such beauty to life..

For the heart has

but one wish

has but one dream

the soul has but

one hope and prayer, Love

For there are those

who seek love

for the sake of greed

others seek love’

for the lust of power

but true love comes

by way of a sweet smile

and can be

a waiting game

a challenge for the heart and soul

the heart’s wish and soul

the soul’s hope and prayer

brings such beauty to life.

For the heart has

but one wish

but has one dream

the soul has but

one hope and prayer, Love.

A World gone mad: Fear

A World gone mad: Fear.

A World gone mad: Fear

What is fear? Fear is the absence of knowledge, or as I have seen the inability to knowledge or the acceptance of knowledge. This essay is in response to an statement made by someone I always had and continue to have respect foe for, made one of the social networks concerning the murderous attack on the recruiting station in Tennessee. He said that we should have armed guards at our military recruiting stations, this is clearly a statement of fear.

Fear can lose Nations, lose lives, and lose ones Faith. Fear spins and twist the mind so that what is unreal, appeals to be real. And facts are taken as lies, and lies are taken as facts. Fear also causes one to rush to judgment, which in most cases proves to be wrong. So it is easy someone to judge a lone attacker as being a member of a Islāmic terrorist group, even though no Islāmic terrorist group has claim credit for the attack. What evidence there is shows a lone attacker, who has aligned himself with Islāmic extremist, who acted on his own accord. Are we to fear one person? A person with problems, who slipped through the National security net. If we a Nation that is disunited and with growing dissention among the citizens, then fear very likely to be common place.

Back when 9/11 happen, I was at first fearful and outraged like most of my fellow citizens. But I remembered something my father told me ” know your enemy ” so I went to the library and read the Quran, my conclusion was that Binladin  was a false prophet of the Religion of Islam, and it is my considered opinion the ISIS is the same. I could clearly see the dangers that face our Nation and the Religion of Islam was and is not our enemy. More recently the doctors informed me that I have certain medical challenges that could, well be very disappointing to say the least. At first I was fearful, but remembering what my parents taught me about fear ( fear is the absence of knowledge ). As the discovered more about these medical challenges. that knowledge eased my fears. Along with my Faith in the Holy Trinity and the Blessed Mother, fear is no more than a secondary concern.

I do not fear an attack on this Nation, not by a lone attacker nor by an army. For I have great faith in the ideas and principles that are the foundation of this Nation. I have great faith in my fellow citizens, if we can united this Nation and rid ourselves of the dissention that plagues it! But most importantly I in my Freedom of Religion, which gives me the strength and courage to face any enemy, but more importantly it will delivery Peace, above all else it will delivery Peace!

REMEMBER  FEAR IS THE ABSENCE OF KNOWLEDGE, FEAR IS IGNORANCE!!
