If today you hear his voice,
harden not your hearts.

Repentance is basically turning away from our own ideas and waiting upon the ideas of God to fulfill in our lives. When we realize that we messed up our life by relying upon our Wisdom and failed to seek the Wisdom of God we turn back from our understanding to Gods understanding. To understand our lives in our own ideas of life or of worldly ideas is deceptive and stupidity because we do not know whether we or the World is right in the real way of life. But when we rely on the Word of God and his promises we are sure that we are on the right direction.

Waiting on the promises of God to fulfill in our lives is the greatest trial of our life. Probably God wants us to realize the value of the gift before we accept it from his hands. Also we may know the complete truth of the Blessing so that we may become a blessing and truth to others. God prepares us to accept the gift and Blessing and trains us how to use that gift to good of others before giving us that gift. But we are so much impulsive and impatient we pluck the half ripe Fruit which is Sour and Pungent which does not give us any joy or benefit of consuming it, moreover it makes us sick and disturbs our peace. Half truths of life is no good , it brings confusion and chaos in our life because there is truth in it.

The real Truth can come only through the Creator and not through the Creation. The Creation may assume things in Science , Philosophy or in theories and constantly changing from one generation to the other because no one has seen the real truth. It is like someone is looking at a figure from a distance and assuming it as a Tall tree , but as he comes closer it may not be a tree at all or there may not be anything but just Void looked like a tree.

To know the truth we have to meet the Creator and we have not seen the Creator but we have experiences of the Creator and Wisdom of the Creator Portrayed in the form of Scriptures from the beginning of the Creation. Also we have a Person in the History called Jesus Christ who was born through the Spirit of God and said he came from above and claimed he is the Son of God and Messiah , died and risen on the third day and ascended in to Heaven. We have three choices in our life, 1. Believe in the Word of God 2. Believe in Lord Jesus Christ 3. Believe in our ideas and World.

The real truth of life can be revealed only through Jesus Christ and the Word of God and all the rest of the truths are half truths which are deceptive and lead us to destruction of our life. I have experienced in my own life , the half truths make sense in the beginning but as we walk through them , they take us to a place where we are lost and put us in to despair and confusion because if we have a half Map of our life , it leads us only half way or middle of the Sea and then we try to figure out our own ideas which further mess our lives.

I have seen many successful People messing their life without having any aim in their life, after achieving everything which they aimed and Worked and dedicated their whole life to achieve them. This is the most pathetic situation a person can realize in his life and same thing happens after our death, we come to know that whatever we worked for is of no use and a big waste and there was no truth in that idea or belief.

Today God is calling us to repent or turn back from our own ideas of life and believe in the Word of God Lord Jesus Christ who is the complete truth of our life. To believe Jesus is the biggest Science or Chemistry of our life which reveals the whole truth and meaning of our life on this Earth. The word of God knocks on our door every moment of our life but it is up to us to open the door of the Will of our Heart and permit that Word of God to take control of that moment. Let us live at a time with Jesus or the Word of God in our life . It is beautiful and heaven on this Earth.

Let us Give a chance to Jesus just for some trial in our life in any of our life situation and wait upon him and watch him how he works in that situation. It is very beautiful to see his workings daily in that situation just like a Seed sprouting, growing as a plant and then big tree with full of good fruits. If you do not believe in these things fine but give a chance to Jesus just for fun and Curiosity to watch him working in your life. If you are not satisfied with him you can withdraw from him . For I know that Jesus Christ never fails .

Prayer : Lord Jesus Walk with me in the dark areas of my life. Amen.

Jesus can turn Pandemic in to Prosperity.

In every circumstance and in all things
I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry,
of living in abundance and of being in need. 
I can do all things in him who strengthens me.

Jesus Christ has unveiled all the confusion and anxiety of life on the Mount Calvary and opened the mysteries of the Kingdom of God and abundant life to those who seek him and want live in his Presence. When we are with Jesus we can do all things through him. When we say all things it can be any circumstance in our life , for God nothing is impossible.

Moreover the Kingdom of God can not be aligned with the Kingdom of the World , if we detest the Kingdom of the World and prioritize our values towards the Kingdom of love then we will be able enter in to his presence but we must live a life of holiness to live with him otherwise we will be thrown away from his presence at the Day of Judgement.

All the three readings of today tell us to choose the values of Christ in our daily life , how hard or easy they may look like but when we live in his values we will see the good things of Heaven where there is no Sorrow and will provide for all people a feast of rich food and choice wines,juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines.On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples,the web that is woven over all nations;he will destroy death forever.

It does not matter whether we are hungry or over filled but what does matter is whether we are living in Christian values. If our professions, education, wealth, Farming,Business , Family ,adventures, degrees, name and fame is not routed in the Values of Christ then these Works become Worldly values and they will not help us to live life in abundance, either in this Earth or after our death.

Our calling is to live in his presence all the days of our life, this is the Purpose God created every human being but the human has forgotten the Creator and stuck to the Creation. Creation is only a supporting function and not the main function or purpose of our life. Let us live in the love of God and enjoy an abundant life.

We have to repent for not living in his presence and the sins of the Whole World. The devil creates a Veil or web between the Creator and Creation , when we live with the Creation and embrace Evil and his false promises. Jesus has destroyed this Web and unveiled the Veil which blocked the presence of God in our life forever. When we repent and climb the mountain of his presence we are safe and sound feasting with him whatever circumstances they may be, does not matter , what matters is his presence and love because he can change every sorrow in to Joy, sickness in to health, hunger in abundance, Pandemic in to Prosperity ,nothing is impossible for him.

Mother Mary rejoiced in her Magnificat and lived a life of faith ,though she had to go through many troubles and sorrows but she remained in the presence of God and did his Will and rejoiced in all circumstances .

Prayer : Lord reveal me the secret mysteries of the Kingdom of God . Amen.

Jesus became the ultimate Commandment of love.

But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a disciplinarian.
For through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ
have clothed yourselves with Christ.

I worked in Corporate Companies for Twenty Five Years starting as a Representative and ending as a Global Head. All the twenty five years my thoughts were that of a sincere dedicated disciplined Worker who carries out my Owners Business. Though I had control of the whole of the Business as my own and responsible for all profit and loss of the Business , I was not hundred percent sensed the Business as my own but carried out a notion of yes Sir .. No Sir to my Bosses to please them or if I put indirectly worked in the fear of the Owners of the Business. This is the same story of all the people who work in Companies , there is a formative approach towards the company and never will be able to sense the Ownership. Our main focus is on the attending hours, discipline in the Office , Policy Matters and the Profit , if we miss these targets we evaluate our performance as Bad or we become Bad Employee of the Company.

It so happened that one of our Director’s Son started working under me and started reporting me after his university Studies. The approach of the Directors Son was completely different , his main priority was not about timings or discipline and he changed Policies regularly and did business in loss , I complained the trespassing of the Systems to the Father Director as a good buttering Employee but to my surprise the Father Director told me that he had instructed to do those very things which were crime in my point of view as an Employee.

I could not understand the management of the Company and after sometimes I left the Company and started my own Business . When I had my own Business my priorities and approach towards my Company changed , I never stuck to the 9 to 5 timings , sometimes I was not coming to Office and some days worked day and night as per the need of the hour. I changed the systems with in a day when they did not work for the Company and discipline was against Job completion and quality. My ownership and perception of the Business completely changed and sense of Ownership came from with in as a Director of the Company. We went through losses to gain overall Profit at the end of the year which I could not understand when I was a good and sincere Employee of the Company.

In Christian life also if we act like a good Christians by following the Commandments to please God and one another, then there is a burden in our heart, the burden of following the Rules for the sake of following it and not understanding them why these rules are set in our life. Jesus came in to this World to make us aware of the reason behind this Commandments. If we see all teachings of Jesus , we hear believe in me .. Believe in my teaching.. listen to me.. Jesus himself became a Commandment or a sign of love for us and when a person believed in Jesus and his teachings , the person supernaturally transformed in to the image of Jesus or his teachings. When we are transformed in the image of love or Jesus, all the Commandments , rules, liturgy, rituals, obligations become secondary because we do them spontaneously for the love of God and not as an obligation.

The Commands and signs on the Road keep us away from danger but if a person understand the value of life and safety, do not require these Commands or signs because he knows that he has to drive slowly or stop at the signal to avoid congestion or wait for the other driver to go first or wait for other driver to maneuver . Though there are signs and Commands on the Road, thousands of accidents happen every year but if people are aware and understand the safety and value life , there will not be any accidents but the whole traffic will be place of respect and order.

I was watching a documentary of a Doctor who has dedicated his life for the tribal people in a remote place and he says there is no administration or any facilities or education or medical facilities in that remote place but the Crime level like rape, murder , cheating , stealing or even major sicknesses like Cancer, TB, HIV , DIABETES are nil. They are responsible and owned their own life with all Wisdom and understanding they have in their own traditions.

If we believe and act on the teachings of Jesus we will be the brothers and sisters or mothers of Jesus and a Child of God. This is the ultimate vocation of a Christian on this Earth to be anointed as Blessed and Holy before their Physical death. All people who live the Beatitudes of our Lord on this Earth straight go to Heaven or in to the presence of God by trespassing the stage of purgatory , there is nothing to purge out from their life because they lived their life in complete union of our Lord. We will be a Saint in Heaven , there are so many unsung saints in their own way of life.

Mother Mary lived her life fully listening to God and taking care of Jesus in her whole life and called Blessed , death could not hold her and ascended in to Heaven in Body , Mind and Spirit . Jesus is also seated at the right hand of the Father in Body, mind and Spirit. One day we will also rise body, mind and Spirit , a New Heaven and New Earth which is the ultimate plan of God for all Human Beings to live a life everlasting and to Carry out Gods Business on Earth and Heaven by over powering the Evil .

Faith & Love of Christ makes us Complete Man or Woman.

Christ ransomed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,
for it is written, Cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree,
that the blessing of Abraham might be extended
to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus,
so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

What is Law ? this is a very important question we must have the answer otherwise our understanding of our faith becomes no meaning or we do not understand our life and what Jesus Christ did for the World. Law basically are instructions given by God to people in various stages of generations. All people were created in the basic image of love but love was corrupted through disobedience and rebelliousness to God’s Commandment of Love. God instructed people through many righteous people about the Law of love but people misinterpreted the Law and Evil entered in the Law. The substance of love disappeared and Hypocrisy and Sin entered in the set of rules by rituals, formalities and obligations. It was impossible for a person to enter in to relationship with God through set of rules and regulations.

For example if we take Marriage as a Sacrament of obligation and Sacrament of love , if the participants the Couple take Sacrament of Marriage as an obligation and live their life without love and bring their Children up without the love of God , this Sacrament becomes a obligatory life of Law and there is no Jesus or Holy spirit in this Marriage, but a Couple live the Sacrament of Marriage in the love of God by giving and forgiving each other and bring their Children up in the love of God by witnessing them in that love then this marriage becomes a Blessed Holy family ,Holy spirit as their partner and Jesus as their Salvation.

In this World every Human need help and can not lead their life with any kind of education, intelligence,Science , self discipline ,self determination, self sacrifice or self works. The Works of our hands may be good in the Worldly point of view but we can not see the love of God in those Works. Human mind does not have capacity to love and need help from the Creator to balance their mind. When we believe in Jesus and follow his teachings by repentance, we receive special power from above the power of the Holy spirit. When we lead our life through the power of Holy spirit , we can call ourselves as we are leading normal life otherwise we are not leading a normal life but an abnormal life or imbalanced life which we are not aware of what is right and wrong in our life. We have lost the capacity to choose the right and wrong in our life due to our corrupted human nature.

Law has corrupted by the Evil so we must live a life of faith and love. Why faith and love is important in our life because faith draws the Power from God and love executes that power through our Works and ministries , if we miss one of these in our life , our life is incomplete and empty. No curse , No spell, No Evil, No sickness, No Pandemic can be part in the presence of Jesus Christ because we are recreated in our original image of God like when God created Adam and Eve. The only requirement is we must possess him 24×7 365 Days in our life.

We will have special powers through the Holy spirit to bind the Evils and command them to the feet of Christ. If we are slaves of Sin or addiction no evil will listen to our Command so we must renounce Sin and believe in Jesus and possess the gifts of the Holy spirit in Reconciliation, forgiveness and Prayer and bind the strong man of the Law and take over the Law by faith and love of Christ. This process we must continue each and every activity of our life, if we miss one single activity and go back to the Law of life the Evil comes back in our life with all Seven Capital Evil Spirits and will plunder our lives and disturb out Peace, love , joy and forgiveness. When we open one door to the Evil , all the Evil spirits enter one by one .

I have seen people who came to me for Counselling , the Spirit of Pride, Anger, jealousy and greed are common in one person and Spirit of Lust, Laziness, Gluttony in other type of people. The Spirits also like to live in communities or in groups so when we invite one Spirit the very next moment another Spirit walks in to our life and the temptations become very severe in that particular area of life and we fall in to that sin. Sin is very dangerous and route cause of every mishaps and confusions in this World so we must live in the presence of Holy spirit all the time.

I take these actions one day at a time. I activate my faith in my personal Prayer, Scripture Reflections , Holy Eucharist , Examination of my Conscience and family Rosary and filled with the love of God , Holy spirit.Then I take love to witness in my days Work in my daily bread by being active and not lazing around, schedule my day so that I may not waste time, take every person I meet on that day from the hands of God including my family members and enemies , take one initiative to do God’s Business of sharing love and charity like intercession or calling up one person and encouraging him in love. I do at least one hour Physical Exercise to keep my body fit. Most of the time a person in need comes to my life for help and I know I have to help him. Fasting one day in the Week strengthens our Will and Commitment to the Holy spirit. These are small things but matters a lot to build our life with our Master Jesus Christ.

Prayer : Lord teach me walk with you one day at a time. Amen

What happens after a person accepts salvation from Jesus? Goodnews Reflection by Terry Modica

[ Listen to the podcast of this reflection ]

What happens after a person accepts salvation from Jesus? Can he or she live a good Christian life without working hard at growing in holiness daily? It’s easy to get lazy on the path to heaven. It’s also easy to give in to the impulses of our flesh-nature. It takes conscious and conscientious forward momentum to stay close to God.

While we’re still here in this sinful world, we suffer from the Law of Chaos. Everything decays, disorder is natural and order is unnatural and requires great effort. So, too, in our spiritual lives. Growth in holiness takes effort, and without that effort, our holiness decays. Daily. And demons try subtle and not-so-subtle ways to entice us onto the easy path. Daily. As Jesus points out in today’s Gospel reading, we can end up worse off than before our conversion.

Jesus is the “someone stronger”. He overpowered Satan by dying on the cross for our sins and then by overcoming death. It was our death that he took to the cross, and it was his life that he gave us in his resurrection, but we can only benefit from this if we choose to live in him, with him, and through him. Jesus has swept our houses clean, but now it’s up to us — with his help of course — to keep it clean.

Jesus gave us the authority, through our baptisms, to bind and cast demons away from us. However, the best and most effective way to defeat demons is to do the opposite of whatever they want us to do. Are you tempted to get angry? Forgive instead, even if you don’t feel like you want to. Are you tempted to demand your own way? Instead, do what the other person is demanding of you (as long as it’s not sinful).

We need to stop living in automatic mode and identify the ways that our lives are being ruled by the Law of Chaos. Then, we can choose to live by the Law of God’s Love. Putting effort into choosing holiness is so eternally and vitally important that the cost of our time and energy should not seem like too high a price.

We have to be overcomers, working on our holiness daily, consciously choosing behaviors that resist the Law of Chaos. One of the saddest examples of this, which I witnessed and caused me to discern the spiritual principles I’ve shared in this reflection, was the case of an old friend who was a priest with addictions. Although he did desire to grow spiritually, he was unwilling to pay the cost of recovery. I watched him wither emotionally and then spiritually. He ended up sequestered by his bishop to serve in a very small ministry, and soon after he withered physically as well and died an early death.

He had come alive in the Holy Spirit during seminary, and God graced him with a fantastic gift of miraculous healing and good preaching. However, although an initial conversion to Christ always turns destruction into resurrection, it cannot keep faith alive. On-going addictions cater to the flesh-nature, and so the person’s spirit disconnects from the Holy Spirit, and decay sets in.

Remember, with God all things are possible. Everyone can be rescued from the Law of Chaos, but often it doesn’t happen until they become miserable enough in their decay to desire change. Sometimes this happens after death in Purgatory. We must continually pray for those who are on the road of destruction. We must take time to discern what God is asking us to do to help them seek recovery. And we must choose to trust in God’s desire to resurrect all those we bring to him.

Does, then, the one who supplies the Spirit to you
and works mighty deeds among you
do so from works of the law
or from faith in what you heard?

We can interpret Law in to Worldly discipline , rituals , obligations and formalities observed not in love but to please oneself and others. This act is called hypocrisy . St. Paul is not talking about the Ten Commandments of the old Testament but how they have been observed in our life. Ten Commandments in brief represent Love and these ten Commandments can not be observed with a checklist of Yes or No but must be lived in faith and love.

Love supersedes all Commandments and all the Spiritual discipline. When we were anointed with this love , this love drew our life to a different direction. Love leads us to eternal way of our life. The love of God the Holy spirit must be the ultimate and only purpose of our life. When we live our life by any other power like Money Power, Muscle Power , Civil Law, Manipulation of truth, Corruption so on we go against the Spirit of love or the inspiration of the Holy spirit. The common enemy of love in today’s World is Material World.

When we ask God anything in love and for love we will receive it. When we seek anything in love and for love we will find it and when we knock anything in love and for love the door will be opened to us. Love is God and when we ask in love , it is God who puts the inspiration, purpose or burden in our heart to get it to build the Kingdom of love. So the petitions or Intercessions are not to get something for our selfish needs but to build the Kingdom of love or Heaven on this Earth. God provides us without asking but he wants us to ask so that the Pride of our gifts may not take us away from from the love of God.

When we ask we humble ourselves and acknowledge ourselves as Creation and dependents. Many of our prayers are also delayed , it is not because God does not want to give us but we are not able to receive them due to our Pride. The delay kills the Pride of the faithful and makes them humble. This is natural Law because to receive something we must acknowledge ourselves as Creation and dependents in humility. All gifts are in the Air and already provided in abundance , we must just pluck them, but to pluck them we must humble ourselves in Petition and Intercession.

I have seen some people are blessed abundantly and no need to pray for their needs. These people in reality do not depend upon the material world and believe in losing Worldly things for the sake of love. These people may not show outwardly but if we dig deep in to their heart they are so simple and humble all things are available to them. When we knock at the door of Heaven unceasingly and our prayers are not answered , first thing we must do is to stop knocking and examine ourselves why our Prayers are not answered and delayed , a thorough repentance with a humble heart immediately opens the doors of Heaven.

The grace of God falls upon good and Evil in the same measure but the Evil do not experience due to their rebellious and being away from the Word of God. I have seen people who lived in Sin for many years and come to a Retreat and repent their Sins the Holy spirit the love of God poured in to their heart instantly. These people change their life dramatically as living evidence of God’s Love. So let us not worry about the things of this World , what we eat , drink or gather for the future but let us be careful to live in love at every moment of our life. All things are provided and there in the Air , we must just pluck them and eat them in faith and humility. Let us develop this life of walking in the Spirit of Faith and love.

Prayer : Lord teach me to be humble and gentle in my life. Amen.

Holy Mary Mother of God Pray for us Sinners…

In Catholic Spirituality Rosary is an important devotion through the intercession of Mary the Mother of Jesus. The devotion of Rosary definitely was not fallen from Heaven but an inspiration given by the Blessed Virgin Mary to combine various Scriptures and Prayers of the Church to devoted Christians. The Apparitions of Mary to the devoted Saints like St. Dominic founder of Dominican in 12th Century has lead this devotion as a powerful intercession , deliverance and protection prayer.

In the 12th Century the Church was completely Politicized and Church leaders were involved more in the Commercial and Political activities than on the Spiritual life. The inquisition and forced Conversions were part of the Church History and Latin was the official language of the Scriptures and Mass. Though people repeated Latin Words but did not understand a single Word of the Latin. The Masses were in Latin and not interactive and a peculiar Church which was contrary to the Church of Christ developed in the History. At this time Mother Mary started appearing to Many devoted Christians and giving many messages and all of them were to repent and believe in Lord Jesus Christ. The Rosary devotion started by St. Dominic was a simple devotion given to the families to come together and pray through the intercession of Mary to Jesus.

In the Medieval time the Rosary became the Gospel to the Families because very few people knew Latin to read and understand the Scriptures. The devotion of Rosary was available in the normal native languages as it was not a official devotion and was a private devotion. This private devotion of Rosary became the heart of Prayer in every Catholic Family. The devotion of Rosary later recognized by the Church as a liturgy of the hour for the families who were not able to pray the Scriptures of the Clergy. Families adopted this practice of reciting Rosary when the Clergy recited the psalms in their Morning, afternoon and evening prayers . Rosary became the powerhouse , Gospel and communication guide of every Catholic Christians.

I know one story of the ancestors who could not recite Rosary in words due to lack of knowledge took names of kitchen objects like Vessels as figures to Our Father, Hail Mary and Holy Mary and repeated 10 times in their daily Rosary. In short Rosary became the object of Faith to communicate with God and all families faithfully followed this devotion to this day without fail. The devotion of Rosary is an inspiration of the Holy-spirit to the simple and poor People who did not know how to pray and the depth of the Christian truths in the dark age of the Church. So for all people who were poor in Spirit the Rosary became the Gospel in their level of faith.

The repeating words is like Child like faith ,and God loves it much more than the learned Preachers of the Word of God. But the repeating Prayers and Scriptures must be done in faith and devotion. If we repeat or say Rosary as formality then there is no relationship in that Prayer because we are not connected with him in faith. So the words or Letters, method or Knowledge does not matter in communication but a simple faith what connects us to Christ. It may be Scriptures or Rosary or Church Prayers all are inspired by the Holy-spirit and thus become the Word of God.

The devotion of Rosary by nature and method is humble and simple in method so when we recite the Rosary we humble our self by default which is very important to come in to the presence of God. Rosaries must be recited for daily life because Rosary is a source to draw grace in our daily life for daily living. Three Rosaries in a day are suggested corresponding to the three Hours of the Liturgy of the Church like early morning , afternoon and Night. These Rosaries must include all our intentions, Sorrows, Joys, thanksgiving and intercessions.

I use many modern methods of Spiritually in my daily life and ministry to come closer to God but when I fail in all these methods I take my Rosary beads in my hand and recite the Rosary which my Mother taught me as my first prayer of my life. The Rosary beads are not a magic beads and there is no super power in it as some people exhibit it like pagans , it is only a reminder and calculator which help us and keeps us in the presence of God. If we use them like Holy Objects then they come in the category of Blessed objects like Crucifix and other relics of the Church but if we take them as Beads of Rosary then we must use it to count and as a reminder.

In the Rosary the main Portion is the life of Jesus reflected in four mysteries. These are called mysteries because these actions have a deeper meaning which Our Father and Mother Mary reveals the real meaning of these mysteries. Our Father know Jesus as his Spiritual Father and Mother Mary know Jesus as his physical Mother and guide of his life. We must take time to reflect upon the mysteries and come in to a dialogue with the Lord with acknowledging our Father with the intercession of Mother Mary. These mysteries must reveal the meaning in our own life by living in its prompting or inspiration. The Nicene Creed gives us an opportunity to proclaim our Faith and Prayer of Fatima is prayer of intercession. The Litany Loretto are the attributes of Mary and her Walk with her Master.

The Rosary must lead every family in to a spontaneous intercessory time, Reflection time and Praise and Worship . When we recite the Rosary in this manner the hidden mysteries of the Kingdom of God are revealed to us in our life and Lord leads us in the devotion of rosary in our daily life. I have seen many great devoted people depend upon the devotion of Rosary and built a very closer and healthy relationship with Lord Jesus Christ.

The devotion of Rosary is a powerful method to draw grace of Providence ( daily Bread) Protection( Temptations/ Evil Attacks) Discernment( Wisdom & Knowledge) and this grace a family or Clergy requires in their daily life to live a good Christian life. Today Rosary is no more a Private devotion but the devotions of Saints, Popes, Kings which have helped them to live their life in difficult time in the Intercession of Mary, Jesus, Joseph, Father and Holyspirit. Let us remember when we fail all methods to communicate with God, let us kneel with the beads of Rosary in prayer and Intercession.

Prayer : Holy Mary , Mother of God ,Pray for us Sinners now and at the hour of our death.Amen.

Peace is the Ultimate Fruit of our life.

Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

When I was thinking from which key word I start to reflect and walk through today’s reading , Peace of God magnified in bold letters. The Peace of God is the ultimate achievement of our life. I remember when I attended a renewal retreat I received a bubbling joy and immense Peace in my Heart at the end of the Retreat. I thought this is what I wanted, and went for a spiritual counseling to a Priest , he told me one thing that the peace you have received must be maintained or preserved all the time. I thought now I do not want anything in life and I had a unique understanding of the situations which surpassed all understanding of this World. Immediately after the Retreat there was a argument broke out among ourselves about return journey and in this argument the Peace of God vanished and again there was irritation and resentment regarding who is right and wrong.

God gives his gifts of love, Joy, Peace freely every morning if we sit quietly and feel his presence. He forgives all our trespasses of the past and gives us his grace at every time we approach him. But what is important in our life is to maintain that Peace of God in our life. The peace of God or mercy of God is the Holy spirit who comes to live with us with all his gifts, fruits and Power of God but if we nurture the Peace of God or seek the Peace God or make Peace of God or live the Peace of God or try to make Peace among ourselves and others we surpass all the understanding of this World. This is a Under Cover Spiritual Warfare which most intelligent successful People of this World can not understand. Peace is the ultimate bottom line or if I put in Business term Profit or purpose of life , if we toil our whole life doing many things but no peace in our life, we have not met the Goal or Purpose of our life.

If the most successful person of this World does not possess the Peace in his heart, all his understanding of his life or whatever he has gathered or made is a big waste or rubbish. To maintain peace we must love and forgive in our daily life. I decide everyday I will not loose the presence of holy spirit during my personal Prayer in the Morning and fill with joy, Peace and love but I am tested with my Belief at the very next moment by some or the other distraction and the presence of God leaves me or if I put it in right way I leave the presence of God and go back to the rut of this World. God wants us to bear fruits that will remain and not loose or perish. We must work on this at every moment in Prayer , Patience , self control, forgiveness and overall in peace and love.

Jesus is looking at peace of God in our Heart . Peace is the ultimate destination of our life. After our death we rest with God in everlasting Peace and God wants us to be peacemakers in our families, Society, Church, Work Place and Nations. Sunday is a day to rest in the presence of God and analyse our mistakes of the past week and draw strength from God and make peace with God. We can analyse of a person who fights, quarrels, instigates, divides and causes violence is not a peaceful person and Holy spirit can not live with this person. These are the people Jesus is talking about who kill and beat the servants of God. Jesus sends his servants in our daily life in the form of our least brothers and sisters , if we do injustice, cheat them, loot them and do all injustice , one day or for sure on the Judgement day he will throw these people to the eternal absence of God the Hell.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. As we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis the Assisi , let take him as an model who resisted the concept of Holy War and made peace with the Sultan by sacrificing his whole life for Peace, joy and Peace.

Prayer : Make me an instrument of peace.

Spiritual warfare through intercession of Mother Mary- Rosary – From Good News Reflections

Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
Behold, I have given you the power
‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions
and upon the full force of the enemy
and nothing will harm you.”
(From Saturday’s Gospel reading)


Reflection for Saturday:
How to prepare for the full force of the enemy so nothing will harm you

Our Lady of the RosaryHere we are in October. The month of the Holy Rosary. And it’s the month when satanists and witches prepare for their most wicked holiday, Halloween. And this year, where I live, Halloween will include a rare full moon. (A Halloween full Moon occurs about every 19 years.) October has always been the most active month for demonic attacks against ministries such as ours, and now this year — 2020, a year already so full of hardships — the full moon rituals coinciding with Halloween rituals has me running for extra armor. And praying extra rosaries.

This October is also the final countdown in what could be called a civil war for morality in the US, where the presidential election is more about good versus evil than ever before. Anyone who doesn’t see this election through the lens of spiritual warfare is either living outside the US without access to the news (the full news, not just the anti-Christian biased news of so many sources) or they’ve been tricked into thinking that the devil isn’t real or he doesn’t care about politics.

But fear not! Jesus says, “I have given you power to fight against the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you.” In fact, not only can we, but we are called to do this! Praise the Lord, the Army of Christ and the Soldiers of the Virgin Mary have been answering the call. The sound of our united prayers and our resistance is getting louder and louder every day!

The first round of the 54-day novena for the US elections and the sanctification of America is near completion (October 7th). Others began this novena on a later date and so will end later in the month. And non-Catholic Christians have been having their own prayer campaigns. Plus, about 50,000 Christians of all denominations united last Saturday in Washington DC for a prayer march.

Do you realize what this means? As Christians grow stronger in prayer and in repentance and in holiness, the Enemy grows weaker. We are returning to the true nature of being a Christian: militant!

“Militant” is not a commonly heard word to describe us. But the Church has always taught that there are three states of the Church: The church triumphant describes the Church in heaven; the church suffering refers to the church in purgatory, and the church militant is the Church on earth.

We know that the devil has gained a lot of territory over the past century. But now we Christians are gaining it back! Jesus said that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church (when he gave Saint Peter the authority to lead the Church; see Matthew 16:18).

The church militant has been weak. We’ve let the devil take over more and more territory and we’ve actually enjoyed some of his changes. One of the devil’s tactics has been to disempower Christians by disconnecting us from the Holy Spirit. We should have been holding Life in the Spirit Seminars and similar courses (such as The Wild Goose series) in every parish. We should have been taught how to live like the first Christians did (read the Book of Acts). But instead, we’ve accepted and spread false ideas about God (read my book 30 Days to the Father’s Heart for examples), relegated the supernatural mostly to canonized Saints, and made up our own minds about what is sinful and what is not.

We should have been making faith formation about life in the Holy Spirit a top priority, a normal follow-up to RCIA, and the topic of parish programs. It’s the Holy Spirit who teaches us the truth. It’s the Holy Spirit who empowers the followers of Christ to imitate him in every way, including the works of miracles. The Catechism tells us that “the Church invites us to call upon the Holy Spirit every day, especially at the beginning and the end of every important action” (para. 2670).

St. John Vianney in the 19th Century said, “When we are led by the Holy Spirit, we cannot go astray. He is our strength and our light. He teaches us to distinguish between truth and falsehood, between good and evil.” Do you see the connection between today’s rampant immorality and insufficient faith formation about life in the Spirit and about the teachings of the Church?

So now we have to face the full force of the enemy and be so completely on the side of Christ that nothing will harm us when we push back at the devil to reclaim lost territory. But his army of demons and human cooperators has grown so large that defeating them while remaining safe requires more than praying the Rosary and the Saint Michael prayer. The church militant must become fully alive in the Holy Spirit. Fully committed to holiness. Fully determined to become the Church that Jesus created.

This is God’s plan.

You want to be one of God’s soldiers using his divine power to conquer evil, right? There are three stages of becoming a triumphant soldier. The first is “boot camp”. This is the training period that strengthens our faith muscles because we study the true teachings of the Church and we study the Bible. Boot camp also reshapes groups of individuals into powerful fighting teams. We can’t fight the Enemy alone. We need each other and we need the Holy Spirit.

Stage two is “pre-deployment”. This is the very necessary step of repenting of our own sins, our own contributions to how the world (and our families and our parishes) became such an unholy mess. The Sacrament of Confession breaks the holds that the devil has had on us. Remember, sin weakens us. We cannot stand strong on the battlefield with unrepented sins. If we are chained to the devil in any way, even if we convince ourselves that we are not, we are actually helping the Enemy. We should all go to Confession at least once a month.

Stage three is deployment. This is when we disempower demons. The Father calls us, Jesus leads us, and the Holy Spirit empowers us to break through the gates of hell and plant the Christian flag wherever we find victims of the devil’s snares. This is what we ask for every time we pray the Our Father: They Kingdom come!

We reject what is evil — starting right now. We ask for a new Pentecost, a new infilling of the Holy Spirit — and we keep asking every day until it happens. Then we will purge the Church from the devil’s infiltrations. We will rescue sinners by bringing them to Christ through the convincing power of the Holy Spirit working miracles.

October 2020 could be a very evil month. But it doesn’t have to be. It’s the month of the Holy Rosary! Will it be the month of the Holy Spirit too? Let’s fight, my friends — fight against evil with the Holy Mother of God, Mary! Get ready NOW. This very important month has begun.

Come Holy Spirit, fill me.
Come Holy Spirit, renew me.
Come Holy Spirit, You have my permission to change me.
Come Holy Spirit and work in me and through me to convert our world to Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Bless the LORD, all you angels,
you ministers, who do his will.

At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. (Mathew -22-30)

Angels are pure Spirits, mighty in strength and deeds and carry out the Work and Word of God on this Earth. Angels are servants and messengers of God who carry his mission. Angels have intelligence,will and even emotions.

God created all Humans in his image of love and wanted them to live in love. When a Human is born again in Spirit , he or she becomes a Spiritual being and possess all qualities of an Angel. If we do his will on this Earth we share the ministry of an Angel on this earth. Angels main mission is to do the will of God on this Earth , in fact they are the face of God on this Earth.When we do the will of God on this Earth we also become like Angels on this Earth. This is the original image of our self in this Earth.

How to become like an Angel on this Earth. Jesus is telling us to humble ourselves like little Children on this Earth and depend upon him like little Children and receive all Children of God as Angels of God. When we give a cup of Water for the sake of Jesus and his Kingdom of love we invite Angels and Jesus himself unknowingly in our lives. Jesus figure is not a contemplative and meditative figure but a living figure in the form of Angels and Saints the Church the mystical Body of Christ.

We need to understand this point to the core of our Spirituality because now a days people have adopted superficial Character of Prayer and act like Angels on this Earth. Prayer is to listen to the instructions and strength of God and carry out his instructions by humbling ourselves and accepting and carrying out his Will and power in each everything we do and say in our life. When we draw the strength from God and carry out his mission on this Earth we become Angels and Children of God on this Earth.

Angels help and protect us from bad angels on this Earth. In the sport of Football for every position of the Player there is a counter attacker or defender and this counterfeit runs through out the match with the player and attacks him ,irritates him and causes all possible trouble so that the player may not score a Goal. I remember the Captain of of the South American Nation in the World Cup bit the ear of his opponent counter attacker in frustration and was barred for years in the International Football.

In our life also we have a bad angel who irritate us day and night in our life but we are not able understand his moves due his invisible nature. To counter attack him we need Spiritual help and Angels are the invisible spiritual help and power sent by God to the World. When we seek the spiritual help in Prayer, God sends his help through Angels but in reality we are not able understand the working in our life. We can call the Angels as extended Hand of God who protect us from the Bad angels and Demons of the Evil World.

Guardian Angels work through our own Parents , Teachers, Priests, Social Workers , Bureaucrats, administrators, political leaders, police, military, Doctors, Constitution so on in this Earth. When we are aware of the Extended Hand of God the Guardian angel in our life and humble ourselves from our own will or Ego and do his will in obedience to the authorities and live a life of Be attitudes and we become the Children of God on this Earth. If we are Children of God we treat other Children of God from the Hands of God and feel pity upon all those people still in the bondage of Evil Angels and try to help them in Intercession , love and Charity by becoming a Missionary of the Gospel of love.
