Come Holy Spirit

USCCB - (NAB) - April 27, 2008:

"Now when the apostles in Jerusalem
heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God,
they sent them Peter and John,
who went down and prayed for them,
that they might receive the Holy Spirit,
for it had not yet fallen upon any of them;
they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Then they laid hands on them
and they received the Holy Spirit."

Let us pray for one another!

Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Pope Benedict XVI Prayer Intentions

Pope Benedict XVI Prayer Intentions

Today is the deadline to get your prayer intentions in to the site above.


Spirit Daily - Daily spiritual news from around the world:

"When compassion is around us and when it is projected to others, it disarms even those who are hostile. The key is to approach every person with a mouth that curves upward. Mother Teresa said that 'holy living consists of doing God’s work with a smile.'

She also said that the smile on a child was God’s love.
A smile points the mouth, eyes, and soul up to God."

They shall all be taught by God

USCCB - (NAB) - April 10, 2008:
Jn 6:44-51

Jesus said to the crowds:
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him,
and I will raise him on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:

They shall all be taught by God.

Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me."

It's been a crazy week with all kinds of false preachers coming forward and then...from the most un-expected place we get The Word spoken(sang) to millions (billions?). However the phrase 'My Jesus' was still edited out...they can edit all they still came through nice and loud! So come on! Let's all shout to the Lord today...

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing
Power and Majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord, there is none like You;
All of my days I want to praise the wonders of Your mighty love.
My comfort, my shelter, tower of refuge and strength;
Let every breath, all that I am, never cease to worship You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing
Power and Majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing
Power and Majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have...
Nothing compares to the promise I have...
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Shout To The Lord

Rising Expectations

Rising Expectations : A Catholic Reflection: "How many Christian parents are merely hoping to get their adult children back in Church? They can't imagine their children or themselves prophesying, healing, preaching, teaching, or leading. Sometimes in our prayer, we don't seem to be aware of Jesus' resurrection and its implications. The life of Philip opens us to a new dimension of life – risen life."

it continues

USCCB - (NAB) - April 8, 2008:

"But Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit,
looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God
and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
and Stephen said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened
and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
But they cried out in a loud voice,
covered their ears, and rushed upon him together.
They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him."

Still today there are those that have accepted the gift of faith and can now see and those who haven't yet and would like nothing better then to get rid of the first bunch in anyway possible. They too 'close their ears' and rush in 'together' may not be done in as brutal fashion as the above story mentions...but they get the job done.

the work of God

USCCB - (NAB) - April 7, 2008:

"So they said to him,
“What can we do to accomplish the works of God?”
Jesus answered and said to them,
“This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”"

There are so many forces at work today trying to set us on the wrong comes at us from every direction imaginable..even 'dressed in sheeps clothing'...but just because something has worldly appeal doesn't make it right...weigh it against this dictate. How is it adding or subtracting from your belief in Jesus? If it is in any way detracting, run away from it as fast as you can.

Childhood Poems for parents

Childhood Poems for parents:

Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day,
With little time to stop and pray,
For life's been anything but calm
Since You called me to be a mom--
Running errands, matching socks,
Building dreams with wooden blocks,
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose,
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Wiping tears and giving hugs,
A stack of last week's mail to read--
So where's the quiet time I need?
Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board,
To ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then, in my small one's face,
That you have blessed me all the while --
And I stoop to kiss that
precious smile.

Dear children! Also today, as I am with you in the great love of God, I desire to ask you: Are you with me? Is your heart open for me? Do you permit me to purify and prepare it for my Son? My children, you are chosen because, in your time, the great grace of God descended on earth. Do not hesitate to accept it. Thank you."

Porguese foster parents needed

PORTUGUESE TIMES - New Bedford, Mass.

My cousin just sent me the above article and any time I read about children needing homes my heart jumps. I think this particular article is referring to a need that they have in the South if you are Portuguese speaking and live in the south shore...take a look. Meanwhile...let's pray for all the children, their families and for open and obedient hearts to take them in.
