God will use His servants to proclaim God’s word proclaiming liberty to the captives setting them free. “Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.” James 1:22-25
The Lord is calling each and everyone of us to utilize His Spirit as He wills for us to accomplish.
Be the miracle that God brings to those who are captives. See God’s work in the natural as well as the supernatural happenings around you. When a teenager turns from drugs and accepts Confirmation, that is a miracle. When a woman decides to have her child for the love of her child, that is a miracle. When you give aid to the poor, God can work all kinds of wonders in the lives of those forsaken by society.
Pope Pius XI originally established the Feast of Christ the King in 1925 to remind modern man that no matter how technically advanced Mankind becomes, Jesus will always be Lord. The Pope was deeply concerned of the rise of Secularism which today is everywhere.
The Pope wrote, “The faithful, moreover, by meditating upon these truths, will gain much strength and courage, enabling them to form their lives after the true Christian ideal. If to Christ our Lord is given all power in heaven and on earth; if all men, purchased by his precious blood, are by a new right subjected to his dominion; if this power embraces all men, it must be clear that not one of our faculties is exempt from his empire. He must reign in our minds, which should assent with perfect submission and firm belief to revealed truths and to the doctrines of Christ. He must reign in our wills, which should obey the laws and precepts of God. He must reign in our hearts, which should spurn natural desires and love God above all things, and cleave to him alone. He must reign in our bodies and in our members, which should serve as instruments for the interior sanctification of our souls, or to use the words of the Apostle Paul, as instruments of justice unto God.” (Quas Primas #33, Liberia Editrice Vaticana)
The account of this Eucharistic miracle goes back to the first centuries of Christianity and is found in the collection of apothegms of the Fathers of the Desert who lived as hermits in Egypt following the example of St. Anthony the Abbot. A monk was assailed by strong doubts regarding the Real Presence of Jesus in the bread and wine consecrated at Mass. After the Consecration the Infant Jesus was seen in place of the bread. Three other monks who were assisting at the Mass witnessed the same vision.
In the sayings and deeds of the Desert Fathers, we find a description of an ancient Eucharistic miracle. Fr. Daniel the Faranite attests: “Our Fr. Arsenius told us of a monk of Skete who was a hard worker but lacked instruction in the Faith. In his ignorance he would say: ‘The Bread we receive is not really the Body of Christ, but a symbol of that Body.’ Two monks heard his statement and, knowing that he was a good and pious monk, decided to speak to him since they attributed his words to ignorance rather than to malice. So they went to him and said: ‘Father, we heard someone saying something contrary to the Faith: that the bread we receive is not really the Body of Christ, but a symbol.’ The Priest said, ‘I am the one who says this!’ They then began to exhort him,‘you must not believe that, but rather believe what the Catholic Church teaches. We believe that bread is the Body of Christ, and this chalice is the Blood of Christ, really and truly, and not a symbol.’ The accused replied: ‘Unless you can show me evidence, I will not change my mind.’The other monks told him, ‘this week we will pray to God about this mystery, and we believe that God will show us the truth.’
1 And there came one of the seven angels, who had the seven vials, and spoke with me, saying: Come, I will shew thee the condemnation of the great harlot, who sitteth upon many waters, 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; and they who inhabit the earth, have been made drunk with the wine of her whoredom. 3 And he took me away in spirit into the desert. And I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was clothed round about with purple and scarlet, and gilt with gold, and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand, full of the abomination and filthiness of her fornication. 5And on her forehead a name was written: A mystery; Babylon the great, the mother of the fornications, and the abominations of the earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And I wondered, when I had seen her, with great admiration. 7 And the angel said to me: Why dost thou wonder? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast which carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns...
In the official documentation of this event, which is still preserved in the chapel of the Gray Penitents, we read that on November 30, 1433, while the Blessed Sacrament was exposed in the little chapel for public adoration, the city of Avignon was hit by a terrible flood. The Rodano river overflowed after days of heavy rain. In the confusion, Armand and
Jehan de Pourzillhac-Fature, the latter being the head of the confraternity at the time, with great effort struggled to reach the chapel by boat in order to save the monstrance containing the Blessed Sacrament.
From the gates the two men looked into the chapel toward the altar to see what had happened to the monstrance. The saw that the water, which was almost six feet deep inside the chapel, had parted to the right and to the left of the altar, like two walls, and the altar and the monstrance had remained dry and untouched.
News of the miracle spread rapidly, and all the people, together with the authorities, hastened to the place singing hymns of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. Several hundred persons witnessed the miracle. The Confraternity of the Gray Penitents decided that the anniversary of the miracle would be celebrated each year in the chapel on the fear of St.
Andrew the Apostle.
“It would be easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the holy sacrifice of the Mass.“ St. Padre Pio
“God dwells in our midst, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.” St. Maximilian Kolbe
“We should never again use the expression, ‘When Jesus was on earth’ or thin of Him as being only in heaven, Jesus is still on earth.” Father John Hardon
“Every Holy Hour we make so pleases the Heart of Jesus that it will be recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity. It opens up the floodgates of God’s merciful Love upon the world. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. It will make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven.” Mother Theresa
“Give me the grace to long for Your Holy Sacraments, and especially to rejoice in the presence of Your body, sweet Savior Christ, in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.” St. Thomas More
Deepertruth members led by Dr. Gregory Thompson traveled hundreds of miles to join in the Mass, the processions, and the prayer, against and for those participating in the first openly Government sponsored Satanic Black Mass. This was billed as a free speech issue but this event represents something far more sinister.
In order for a true black mass to take place, they must have a consecrated Host where they desecrate the Lord Jesus Christ and everything that is holy. Here, they blasphemed the Lord, stomping on the unconsecrated host as if they were stomping on Christ himself. In actual black masses, this act is far more grotesque. Because of the lawsuit filed against the use of a true consecrated Host, the black mass was performed, despite heavy opposition, with a fake host.
There were an estimated 30-40 participants of this great sacrilege taking place at a small basement theater in the Oklahoma City’s civic center. There was one noted arrest when a lady refused to leave the entrance of the building. Other than that, the heavy police presence restrained protesters who picketed the Satanic service.
Archbishop Paul Coakley led over 3,000 faithful Catholics in Eucharistic adoration against this black mass. The archbishop told participants that the city “has been targeted by dark forces,” and decried the Black Mass, “which to the shame of our city is allowed to proceed.” But he reminded the faithful that “Christ conquered Satan.”
The event was sponsored by the Marian Association of Southern Missouri headed by Father Vincent Bertrand (Deepertruth Chaplain) and Dr. Gregory Thompson.
I interviewed John Carpenter from Branson Missouri who has a lot of study on Marian Apparitions.
John will be joining Deepertruth sharing much of his research which is extremely interesting.
If you have a devotion to Our Lady, you will most certainly enjoy the wealth of information John has uncovered.
St. Joseph's Radio taped the whole two days of speakers and events for the conference and so everything will have both DVD and CD's available. There were really good speakers both days of the Conference.
There were always Priests on hand to hear Confessions and many people took advantage of that and went to Confession. The Bishop was on hand starting off the Conference celebrating Mass with the 4th degree Knights of Columbus in full dress. That was very colorful.
According to the date recorded in the document commissioned by King Alphonsus IV in 1346, on February 16, 1266, in Santarem, a young woman, overcome with jealousy for her husband, consulted sorceress who told her to go to the church and steal a consecrated Host to use for a love potion. The woman stole the Host and hid it in a linen cloth which immediately became stained with Blood. Frightened by this, she ran home and opened the kerchief to see what had happened. To her amazement, she saw that Blood was dripping from the Host. The confused woman stored the Host in a drawer in her bedroom. That night the drawer began to emit brilliant rays of light which illuminated the room as if it were daytime. The husband was also aware of the strange phenomenon and questioned his wife, who was obliged to tell him everything.
Beginning on the Tuesday before Pentecost of the year 1405, the Lord appeared, covered with wounds, to John of Huldenberg, the owner of the place. Only during the third apparition did Our Lord speak, ordering John, “Go to the Chapel of Isaac; you will find Me there.” At the same time the parish priest, Peter Ost, heard a voice instructing him to offer the Mass of the Holy Cross in the Chapel of Isaac. The following day the pastor summoned all the faithful to assist at Mass in that chapel.
John of Huddenberg was among those present. The priest began the Mass and when he unfolded the corporal, he saw there a Particle of the large Host which had been consecrated the preceding Tuesday. He sought to consume the Host, but the Eucharist clung to the corporal and began to bleed. The priest turned white, and John, who had observed everything, comforted him by saying. “Do not fear, this marvel comes from God,” and related his visions.
The saint held in his hands a monstrance containing the consecrated Host; the heretic held his starving mule. The saint, after having requested and obtained silence, turned to the mule with these words.“In the name of your Creator, Whom I, unworthy as I am, hold in my hands, I order you; Come forward immediately and render homage to the Lord with all due respect so that heretics and evildoers will understand that all creatures must humble themselves before their Creator whom priests hold in their hands at the altar.” Immediately the animal, refusing the food offered by its master, docilely approached the priest. It bent its front legs before the Host and paused there reverent.
Can you just imagine seeing Oswald grasping the altar so as not to fall? The priest literally became an intercessor by immediately retrieving the Host from the man’s mouth! The man’s heart was changed for the rest of his life. When the trembling ground stopped, living Blood began to flow from the Sacred Species. Judging from other Eucharistic Miracles, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the blood type of the miracle would be AB positive with a feminine characteristic. Remember, Jesus took his DNA solely from His Mother!
There were many witnesses of the miracle, and very soon the news spread throughout the whole nation. The Emperor Maximilian I himself was very devoted to the miracle. Visitors to the church can view a hole below the altar where Milser sunk up to his knees and you can also see the original altar with his hand prints, although there is a newer altar placed above it in order to preserve the original. The church is open to the public most days.
