    Deepertruth Wednesday Springfield remembered

    in Religion

    The event was sponsored by the Marian Association of Southern Missouri headed by Father Vincent Bertrand (Deepertruth Chaplain) and Dr. Gregory Thompson.

    I flew up to Springfield Missouri flying from Killeen Texas to Dallas and finally to Springfield.

    I had the opportunity to meet Country and Western Singer Charley Pride and some of his band who also flew to Springfield Missouri for a concert.

    While still waiting for my luggage at the Springfield airport, I found myself speaking with missionaries from Nicaragua and gave them a couple of my brochures I had on hand.  I wanted to ensure they heard a strong defense for the Catholic Faith.

    Dr. Gregory Thompson met me at the Springfield airport and quickly took me to Mercy Hospital formerly known as St. Johns to go to a quick Mass.

    The Hospital Chapel was by far the most beautiful church I've seen in a hospital location.

    I went to Confession immediately following the Mass so I was able to receive two Sacraments before the weekend actually began.

    Deepertruth: Seth D Ball, The Converted Catholic Story

    in Religion

    Tonight we have another great story of a young teenager who is making the decision to follow Christ in His Catholic Church.  Seth D Ball (16 years old) is a young man who is on fire for the Lord.  He has recently joined the Rosary Patrol here at Deepertruth, and he also leads an internet Rosary on Sunday evenings.  His faith is already making a huge difference.


    Romans 8:37, St. Paul writes, "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us."  2 Corinthians 2:14 states, "But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.


    Tonight, 1/10/2015, Seth D. Ball will appear on Deepertruth to give his story coming home to the Catholic Faith.  When we are talking about the great people today making a difference, the most important are those who choose to follow the Lord.  St. Jude writes, "keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life."


    In history we read about great men and women who made a difference in their lives shaping and improving the world. I can think of many here in America. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, Willis Carrier invented the air conditioner, and Henry Ford invented the moving assembly line just to name some examples. We basically have hundreds of such conveniences that we enjoy today. Al Gore claims to have invented the internet? I’m not sure about that one, but here we are and what a great opportunity we have using the internet.  There is no greater reward that to be given the gift of faith in Jesus Christ Our Lord.

    Deepertruth: John Carpenter at Popular Bluff Missouri

    in Religion

    John Carpenter was raised in a Methodist church, his father was a Minister of a Methodist congregation. On Deepertruth, John Carpenter will give his conversion story how he has come to accept the Catholic Faith. Since his conversion, John has developed a great interest in the Virgin Mary. He began investigating Marian apparitions bring a wholeness of faith into his life.


    John has been featured on Deepertruth each and every Sunday night focusing on many of these Marian apparitions. The show is called Journey with Mary as we go from one country to another in time and space.


    John also works at the Diocesan level helping the local Bishop of Springfield Missouri, he is a part of the Southern Missouri Marian Association, and is part of Deepertruth. He speaks at conferences where he is becoming more sought after for his study of Marian apparitions.


    John has certainly become an important figure for Deepertruth as he has helped co-host conversion stories of other Catholics. John’s professional background, a field of psychology, gives him a unique perspective in studying the seers of Our Lady from Heaven.  Tonight, John will give his conversion story.


    We are all called to follow the Lord in all that we are and I think this is why conversion stories are so important to many of us. They offer hope in times of despair. Because we are living in an evil age, St. Paul writes, ”And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper.” Romans 1:28

    Deepertruth: The Army Values

    in Religion

    Loyalty


    Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers. Bearing true faith and allegiance is a matter of believing in and devoting yourself to something or someone. A loyal Soldier is one who supports the leadership and stands up for fellow Soldiers. By wearing the uniform of the U.S. Army you are expressing your loyalty. And by doing your share, you show your loyalty to your unit.


    There is a lot to say from our Christian foundation that speaks of loyalty. Romans 12:10 states, “love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.” Bearing true faith, believing in and devoting yourself really means a great deal at the very core. The loyalty that a husband and wife share, the loyalty that teammates have on a playing field have, loyalty is closely aligned with faithfulness. To be faithful to God is to be loyal to His teachings. What the Secularists attempt to do is transform the traditional culture of loyalty to a new direction imposing a loyalty to those who implants tyranny, the support of an oppressive government.

    Deepertruth: Oh Jacob

    in Religion

    I was reading in Genesis the story of Jacob and I was captivated by his life in this highly recognized biblical drama. From the very beginning, he was in competition with his brother Esau. 

    Many today can relate to their rivalry being brothers. The customs then were vastly different than what we see today. 

    Most would think nothing of a "birthright"today, but in the time of Jacob, this was huge. Esau was willing to sell his birthright for a bowl of stew. The biggest deception that played the most importance was Jacob obtaining Esau's "special blessing". 

    Isaac was not able to recognize Esau as Jacob concealed himself so that his father thought he was Esau. How many Fathers give their children a "special blessing" today? How many children follow the faith of their fathers deserving of that blessing?


    Many times, it is a father's prayer for their children that they keep the faith. Worse yet, how many father's even care what their children do? Does it matter that your children follow the Catholic Faith? 

    Many father's can understand what it means to be a "prodigal father", but many do not mind, in fact many are themselves prodigals?

    Deepertruth: The Pamela Ann Sigler Taylor Story, March For Life

    in Religion

    Pamula Ann Sigler Taylor marched in Washington D.C. for the March for life this past January, 2015 in memory of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973.  Pam was a keynote speaker at the Court House.  Tonight Deepertruth is honored to have Pam come on the show and give her story.  


    Since 1973, we have had more than 50,000,000 babies killed by abortion.  We have basically wiped out a generation of people who are not able to speak for themselves; they are forever silent except on that great and glorious day of the Lord. Their voice will be heard then. In order to change lives, we must also work to change conditions that give women support and encouragement.


    Love within the families, having a strong Father and Mother role model is very important.  That is almost counterculture in today’s society as divorce is common, the family unit is under attack, and people are all over the country separated from loved ones. Children are being raised without Fathers. Many Father’s are not acting responsible towards their children.


    The problem and challenge is getting Christians to follow the Lord living out his teaching.  To heal the family, individuals, we need God’s love, forgiveness, and mercy. Love and Compassion does not equal toleration and acceptance. Heaven intervened when the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531 to stop human sacrifice.  Today, we call upon the Lord and His Mother to end the human sacrifices today.
