Ephesians 4:32–5:8
Brothers and sisters:Be kind to one another, compassionate,forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.Be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love,as Christ loved us and handed himself over for usas a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.Immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be mentioned among you,as is fitting among holy ones,no obscenity or silly or suggestive talk, which is out of place,but instead, thanksgiving.Be sure of this, that no immoral or impure or greedy person,that is, an idolater,has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.Let no one deceive you with empty arguments,for because of these thingsthe wrath of God is coming upon the disobedient.So do not be associated with them.For you were once darkness,but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.

Peace Be With You!

The older the world becomes, the more we lose sight of what is true and pure and perfect. Even as Christians, we "slip" at some point every day of our lives. But, even though we ask and receive forgiveness, we must continue on our life journey with a mind toward not repeating sins and living for Christ.  Many are angry, many have lost all hope, man live without love in their hearts, many judge others as if they have that right, many are lonely, and many do not know Jesus as our Savior and giver of our Salvation, and God as the Father of all in heaven.

Allow no one to draw you into salacious and vicious conversation or actions. If someone begins to gossip or speak in filthy terms, which you as a Christian should recognize, you must walk away. Either that or turn the conversation to Jesus and our Salvation, and help lead them away from the evildoer. If you are unable to save them from themselves, then you must leave them.

Since you are a child of God, you have accepted Jesus as your Savior forever. Never cease to pray for good things, harden not your hearts in times of trouble, but look to Jesus for your Salvation and He will take these things away from you.

God of all is seeing this world for what it has become and where it is leading. Be certain that nothing gets in your way on your journey to heaven!

If you are an imitator of Christ, then you are a CHILD OF THE LIGHT. You now live, walk and love IN THE LIGHT! Have Hope that people see Christ in you and that they turn their hearts to Him forever. Because you may have once been in darkness, and now you see, live and love IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.

Lovingly in Jesus Christ,

New post on The Divine Antidote

God Now Wills to Set You Aflame With the Divine Fire of Eternal Self Giving

by Anthony Mullen
I want to revisit a post from July 9, 2015 as a I believe it best summarizes what we are each called to accept and then spread to all with whom we come in contact.  God calls the Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of His Mother the "Greatest Grace" given to the Church and the world in 2,000 years and He declares that Mary, His Mother and our Mother, will save the world from a great coming catastrophe.
Now, we should take this both literally and figuratively, as the greatest catastrophe of a person is the failure to love as God wills, the failure to share in the Fire of Divine Self Giving.  This Grace, when accepted, nourished and corresponded to the way God desires, will cause us to finally begin to love as God loves!  Those who have been transformed by this Grace will tell you nothing, absolutely nothing, in their life of Grace has ever transformed them as this Grace has done!  The reason is that is it proceeds from the Love which God has for Mary and the Love which Mary has for God...the sharing in God's Essence, His Divine Will of Love and Mercy Itself!  God is now willing to share His Love in an even more Extraordinary Way to achieve what St. John Paul II has called "a New and Divine Holiness"; what God has called the "Divine Substitution" to Blessed Dina Belanger; and the "Mystical Incarnation" to Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida; or "Living with His Divine Will" to St. Faustina Kowalska and others still being studied by the Church.  It is this Grace we must sell all to acquire!   How can we know about this Grace and not give it everything we have to accept, correspond to and spread to all?
Our Lord constantly uses this image of Fire and Flames in explaining His Love for us. He did this with Elizabeth Kindelmann to the point that He named an Extraordinary Grace: The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary; but also told her that it is He Himself (seeking a union of wills such that He had with Mary our Mother to the degree we are disposed to receive it).
In the almost 15 years of daily or weekly encounters with Gabrielle Bossis, which our Lord explained in “He and I”, our dear Lord also uses this image of Fire frequently. He wants us to better understand His Love so we can love Him with this same Love…this divine Conflagration of Moment to Moment Intimacy, which He so desires….He so agonizingly desires!!
On April 20 of 1945, he explained to Gabrielle: “…give yourself to Love so that Love may possess you…since I long to have all of you and cherish this hope. Your love quenches My thirst. I am most demanding: you see I want My children to be wholly and utterly Mine at every moment. So, don’t withhold a thing. Don’t take anything of yourselves away. You would steal from Me if you did, because everything is Mine. If I require this of you, it is because My yearning for you is a consuming fire. And My yearning is born of My Love. Do you understand? Do you at last believe? Do you acknowledge My power to Love?”
Our Lord then explained what we need to do to draw closer: “Meditate on this need of Mine and you will call to mind that it is in your power to give Me these alms. Then remember the value of a free gift–the gift of oneself–when offered out of tenderness. What inexpressible joy will be Mine who receives (your gift). I will multiply My Blessings so that the one who receives them will be lost in wonder and gratitude. ‘What have I done to deserve this kindness of my God?’ you will ask. And I shall reply, ‘You loved Him with all your strivings and you let Him love you.'”
Our Lord then gives an amazing instruction that will resonate with those pursuing the intimacy of His Love: “Have you noticed how people talk among themselves, discussing their personal affairs? They spend so much time this way and it does them so little good. Don’t you think that If they gave themselves to Me, their Friend, I should rejoice to have My place in their thoughts and I should know how to reward their confidence (abundantly)? Don’t you think that it would create a moment by moment intimacy between them and Me, and this would be a joy for them, because close to Me their lives would lose their tension. Do you understand? It would be life together with Me, I carrying the heavier end of things. So, again I say, speak with Me, My little ones. Speak with Me. And our hearts will merge. Isn’t this the aim of My Christians?…then begin by living this heart-oneness. Seize upon every opportunity. Find every pretext….And if, in all simplicity, their love loved Me more, I should be there looking after everything in their day, and when night fell, their eyes would close again on My face. You know what it is to sleep that way–within My embrace? Would you like to learn better? Remember, it’s a question of beginning over and over again…of trying to grow….of taking great care not to be satisfied with yourself.”
Our Lord then gives the key to success as He did with Elizabeth Kindelmann: “But ponder on your poverty. Tell Me about it and My heart will be all eagerness to help you since you are so little, so weak. And when you call Me be sure to give Me the most tender names. I will recognize the voice…By yourself you are chaos. Do you fully realize this? Do you try to keep it in mind? Have you humbled yourself today in thought or deed? Not to cause you distress nor diminish your strength, but to tighten your hold on the power of God, who is only waiting for your call…Yes, I know what you want most to confide: ‘Lord, I don’t love you as I want to. Make it possible for me to love You more.’ This suffering of not loving Me enough–offer it to Me in pure reverence, straight from your heart. Offer it often. Don’t grow weary, I will heal this poor suffering of yours. Perhaps by sending one greater still, one that brings with it a piercing ecstasy such as you have never known. ‘O precious wound,’ is the cry of those who have felt it….Humble yourself to obtain it. Sacrifice yourself…Approach Love and Love will take hold of you…Oh, the power of repentance! The sacrifice that pleases Me most is a cleft and contrite heart…So, be My very little one.”
Our Lord knows we struggle badly with constantly admitting our utter weakness, sinfulness and nothingness, due to our self love, our subtle pride, so He gives us the solution: “Ask for everything through My Mother. She is so good, so attentive in caring for your souls. If only you knew! You don’t know her well enough. Give yourself to her without reserve, like her little Jesus…My little child, so dear, so dear, will you let Me live on again on earth in you?”

Ephesians 4:1-6
Brothers and sisters:
I, a prisoner for the Lord,
urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
bearing with one another through love,
striving to preserve the unity of the spirit
through the bond of peace;
one Body and one Spirit,
as y
ou were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I, too, am a prisoner for the Lord. But I am not bound with chains and shackles in the deep cave with all the criminals in. No, I have been a prisoner for the Lord for many a year. There are no bars on my door, I can come and go as I please, do what I need to do on my own, have my own home and a multitude of things that show us that being a prisoner for the Lord does not take away any liberties. In fact, we receive so much more!

We receive peace of mind, know that with the Lord in our hearts, he will take care of us every day until our time comes and He calls us to heaven. We are blessed every day with a multitude of blessings and graces straight from the Lord but do you see them? If not, you should try being more alert of feeling His presence.

For instance, I was doing something I NEVER do. While driving across the little bridge in our town, and was approaching the railroad tracks, I held up my phone to take a photo of the beautiful skies yesterday. When I looked back ahead, I was about 4 feet from a stopped truck. I hit my brakes and avoided him with room to spare. I know I should not have been doing this, and I never will again. It is dangerous to drive and text. I got llucky. My Lord and Savior saved me by nudging me to look straight ahead in time to stop.

I am a prisoner to tell everyone about Him. I get a lot of people who look at me like I am crazy! No, I'm not crazy, I just love our Lord with every ounce of my being! I told several people as I entered stores "Jesus Loves You! Have a Happy Day!" Some look stnned, and were speechless. Why do so many people find it strange that someone would say somethihng positive to them about the Lord? And I always left the clerks when I'd check out with "Have a blessed and beautiful day!"

This is how you can spread His love around!! Are you doing it? No? Well, be ashamed later, and start immediately by committing yourself to be a prisoner of the Lord. Do you know that this, all that I did yesterday, spreading the word that Jesus loves people, made me so happy inside. It was wonderful! A life with our Savior is a Happy Life, but not without the human elements. We have to continually look to Him for redemption, love and care.

I love Jesus and I love God so much that I cannot put it into words. I had a long-standing prayer that I gave to God nearly a year ago and it was answered last week. Praise God, Praise His Holy Name, Praise His Grace and Mercy laid upon me! 

Go back and read the scripture above. Keep it handy as a reference when you may be feeling down and need the Lord. Just call His name, He is with you and has so much to give you,   He is with you always!

Lovingly in Jesus Christ,

Peace be with you, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have a very personal story that I'd like to impart, and I pray that it will be an example for those who have doubts about God and a true faith relationship with Him.

I have for some time now encouraged faith to my readers using scriptures and the parables of Jesus. But I have been going through a personal experience for some time that has drawn me face to face with my own faith. It's time to practice what I preach on a very personal level.

I have DDD, Degenerative Disc Disease of the spine. I also have scoliosis where the spine twists rather than curves. I have already had a double fusion on my cervical spine, and thus I have a titanium plate in my neck where two levels were fused using a synthetic disc material that actually grows to the bone. Surgery was successful and accomplished the goal of being pain free in my neck and shoulders.

I also have had surgery on my lumbar (L3/4 and L4/5) which was fused just like the surgery in my cervical spine. The same synthetic material was used and I believe some kind of rods and screws were put in place to hold the fusion steady. I've told you before that I contracted staph and a bone marrow infection that was horrific, and subsequently was the very thing that brought me to my knees at the foot of the cross.

I am once again facing some kind of surgery on my spine. I have two levels together and one level by itself where the discs have degenerated and I am in pain every day of my life. I'm a pro. I've had problems since I was in my 20's, so I've spent most of my adult life in pain. At this point, I have had four unsuccessful epidurals for the pain. I recently underwent a CT scan and an MRI at the request of a neuro-surgeon.

Yesterday, I went to meet with the surgeon and I just knew it was going to end up with me scheduling a surgical procedure. I was dumbfounded when he sat and crossed his legs and arms and bluntly said, "there's nothing we can do to make you more comfortable." I was "you're kidding, right?" He said "no" and mentioned something about three levels, two together and then one stand-alone. I was so shocked at his very matter-of-fact disposition about this very important issue with my personal health and gave me no recommendations whatsoever that I couldn't think of the questions I should have asked. That came later after I cried in my car on the way home and began to seek God's advice.

My conversation went something like this: "Dear God, I can't believe what just happened! What am I to do? I know that you're trying to tell me something; help me to understand. God, I need some answers and right now I'm so shocked, but I know that this is Your doing! You have your plan for my life. So, it had to be Your decision for me to not have this surgery with this physician. What are you trying to tell me. Help me to understand because I feel so lost right now."

These thoughts between me and God continued until late into the early hours of morning, for my mind was racing and I could not sleep. I finally did sleep and when I awoke, I laid there thinking about my prayers for understanding and acceptance of what is happening with me.

My conclusion: God does not want me to have this surgery now or with this physician. The time is not right, and rushing around to find a spine specialist and having surgery might just curtail my plans to spend Christmas with my nearly 85 year old parents. Also, these surgeons were not the right ones. Perhaps something could go wrong that might cripple me for good. All of these things were made perfectly clear, and therefore, I am not worried about my back pain at this time. I'm resolved to use OTC medications for pain, pain patches and the like until after the holidays.

I am at peace. I have put my complete faith in God about this choice. I feel it is right, I can tell by the peace and resolve that I have.

So, I suppose I'm trying to simply impart a personal experience that went from not knowing to fully knowing because I know that God has my life plan, and he will not deviate from that plan. If I must go through this pain, then all I can say is that it brings me closer to Jesus and His Passion. He suffered a TREMENDOUS amount of pain for you and me.

I haven't been around as much lately as usual because of how I feel, pain wise. But I'm watching from the side and love and pray for your intercessions every day. God bless you all.

My faith in God is more solid, and for that, I am so very grateful.

Lovingly in Christ Jesus,

Luke 17:11-19King James Version (KJV)

11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.


Each time I read of the healings and good works that Jesus did in the name of his Father, God, I am still amazed. Yes, his sermons are something that I wish I could hear amidst the other people of the area. But, we have our Bibles, and with that we read, visual images come into our minds.

I have never seen a leper, and so I do not know what leprosy looks like, but it was apparently a horrible and disfiguring disease. People shunned the lepers for fear of catching the disease. Remember Princess Diana going to see the HIV patients and touching them, giving people a new view on this disease? The lepers were not so fortunate, but the ten who approached Jesus found his favor and going as he commanded, they were healed on their way.

So 1 out of 10 goes back to kiss the feet of Jesus and praises him and gives thanks for his healing. Whatever happened to the other nine?  This scripture is all about the Graces that God bestows on his children, and the thanksgiving to Him for those Graces!

This is how it seems to me, personally, today. About 1 in 10 people in America are practicing any kind of religion. And, I can say that it varies from place to place in America. For instance, I lived in West Los Angeles for several years and to this day, I can recall seeing only one church, and it was a Catholic Church. I was young and not Catholic, but it strikes me as I think of it now how little people worshipped in that part of the country.

I now live in the South where there is a church "on every corner" as the saying goes. But still, I find, there are many who do not know Jesus. They are not believers, and therefore do not believe that they can be healed if they only prayed, according to God's will.

Jesus will accept anyone who comes to him in the name of the Father. He will cleanse you of your sins, just as he cleansed the lepers 2,000 years ago. God gave Him the power, and I know that God was very pleased with his Son's sermons and healings in His name.

Come to the foot of the cross NOW! Repent your sins, acknowledge your evil ways, ask Jesus to come into your heart, pray in silence, stop and just wait to hear his voice. His voice comes from what seem to be far away, but it can be heard. He is soothing to your soul, he blesses you with reassurances that He is there for you, and He says when he forgives your sins, "Go and sin no more."

This beautiful Savior, this beautiful man and child of God, is waiting for you.  He will await you until the end of time. In the book of Matthew he says:
