Who I want to propose to you because of today’s feast, is the person who is all of these things in one and that would be our own dear St. Luke. St. Luke first of all was a physician, a doctor. Why he might be our favorite doctor and the one we would recommend before all others is because he has God’s ear on this. I think he is probably hooked up with St. Raphael and together they are the patrons of God’s healing. There is no better physician to have than that. In fact, there is a reason when all earthly physicians fail us we turn to St. Luke and we turn to St. Raphael to obtain God’s healing for us.Continue reading
Luke 12: 1-10 Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees
Christ warns us against hypocrisy, the fear of the world and covetousness. He admonishes all to watch.
 And when great multitudes stood about him, so that they trod one upon another, he began to say to his disciples: Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.  For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known.  For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops.  And I say to you, my friends: Be not afraid of them who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.  But I will shew you whom you shall fear: fear ye him, who after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear him.Continue reading
Taken from.”Deliverance Prayers,” by Father Chad Ripperger
In recalling what the Church has always taught, Father Ripperger reminds us of the following “Sins Against Faith.”
Willful doubt of any article of faith: deliberate ignorance of the truths of faith which ought to be known; neglect in instructing oneself in the faith according to one’s state in life; rash credulity (e.g. giving credence to private revelation to easily or believing in a private revelations which has been condemned by the lawful Church authorities.) apostasy; heresy; indifferent-ism (to believe that one religion is as good as another, and that all religions are equally true and pleasing to God, or that one is free to accept or reject any or all religions); reading or circulating books or writings against the Catholic belief or practice in such wise as to jeopardize one’s or another s faith; to remain silent when asked about one’s faith; engaging in schismatic or heretical worship; joining or supporting masonic groups who are out to undermine the faith or other forbidden societies.
At Mass they say the confiteor twice, once for the religious and then for the laity. This comes from the two witnesses
Enoch was married, Elias not so. Jesus and John the Baptist were the two witnesses in their day. Which brought about the end of the Jewish customs for Christianity. The Jews expected Elias to return during the Passover but they forgot about Enoch.
And they killed both of them.
Remember that NO ONE comes back from the other world except for the Testimonial Judgement on that last Pentecost Sunday, Saturday week in the WEST.
As Catholics we should be trying to exercise charity whenever we voice our opinions on issues, especially those that pertain to matters of faith.
Most traditionalists seem to be in agreement that we appear to be living in “The Great Apostasy” (Schism) spoken of by St. Paul in II Thess. II. However, most seem to be unaware that confusion among the faithful is one of the main signs of this apostasy. Simply put, no confusion, no apostasy. They go together.Continue reading
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked Maine officials on Wednesday for permission to build a large grave to mark the site of a truck crash that resulted in thousands of lobsters spilling out onto a highway. VIDEO
When John the Baptist appeared at the Jordan river, proclaiming that the kingdom of God was at hand (cf. Mt. 3:1-12; Mk. 1:2-8; Lk. 3:2-18) the Jews flocked to hear him. The expectation of the Promised Redeemer, the Messias, was strong at this time, and here was a Prophet announcing his proximate arrival and calling on the people to repent of their sins in order to be prepared to receive him.

If someone told you that Catholicism was a religion of world domination, you might be taken aback, even shocked. But if you were an instructed social Catholic you would, on reflection, see that there is an essential truth in this crudely put statement. You might respond by agreeing, but adding the rider that the Catholic religion seeks to dominate the world not by arms, but by alms; alms not so much for the materially poor as for the spiritually poor.

Our Lady Help of Christians Last years bulletin.
March 25th would be the week of the creation by the solar calendar and spring full moon, so this year the creation week starts on 25th and Adam’s birth or his creation day would fall on Good Friday evening by the Jewish calendar.(6pm) March 30th-31st. Ex:12. The reading on Good Friday, Holy Saturday Gen: 1.How ironic that our Lord would die on the day He created Adam. Some say that they were both buried in the same area but I can’t vouch for that.

Over the years I have asked the Fathers, how did those three Apostles know it was Elias standing with our Lord & Moses. With Moses I could have envisioned him with the Ten Commandments but nobody could give me an answer for Elias till a few Sundays ago where this friend I addressed on the issue. He showed me a picture of the Transfiguration in his St. Andrew Missal for the Second Sunday in Lent, and there it was. Moses with the Ten Commandments and the other person holding a Scroll.
The Scroll represents the Scriptures from the prophets and the highest ranking prophet in the past would have to be Elias. Also these three people were they only one’s up until that time who fasted for 40 days. Continue reading

Catholic’s can get memorized into an addiction like the rest of the religious world. A good example is how the protestants use the Bible as the ONLY word of God and of course we know that the Church is and always speaks in the place of God. We also forget that it’s all three persons of the Trinity not just JESUS that the Church speaks for. Another example is how were all sinners, but this term is a generic term as the the true definition of a sinner is someone who does evil with the intent to do evil, UN-repetitive. These are those who go to the eternal fire. Continue reading
