Angels

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” – Psalm 91:11-12

“In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” – Luke 15:10

“And now your servant says, ‘May the word of my lord the king secure my inheritance, for my lord the king is like an angel of God in discerning good and evil. May the LORD your God be with you.’ ” – 2 Samuel 14:17

“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” – Hebrews 1:14

“For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;” – Psalms 91-11

I read a book by Padre Pio called, “Send Me Your Guardian Angel”. It was wonderful! I never realized just how much Angels can help us! As some of you have read, I am very sick. And yet there are somethings that are really important that I do! Especially for others. And so I often ask my Angels to help me :). And I am so incredibly grateful for their help!

Because although God sends His Angels to guard us and to send us messages, God also sends His Angels to help us! Because He loves us so.

Our Guardian Angels, our invisible companions, love us. They never leave us.

And Angels have feelings. Not feelings like our own, but feelings just the same. They love God and us, and each other. Thank them. Talk to them. And thank God for sending them!

Because the funny thing about Angels, is that although they do so much for us, we don’t always see it. We don’t always see the harm that could have happened to us-but didn’t. Thanks to their intervention, we have so much to be grateful for 🙂

Anointing Your Home


“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,”  Says the Lord.” – Isaiah 54:17

“A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.  In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” – Psalm 91: 7-12

“Anointing a house with oil is a way to consecrate a home to God and ask for supernatural protection. Oil symbolizes faith in God’s ability to cleanse and make holy, and represents the power of the Holy Spirit. “To anoint your home with oil, simply mark a cross in the outer walls, windows, floors, ceilings, and door posts with the oil. Ask God to fill your home with His Holy Spirit and that every single thing that happens in your home will be only according to His will.” -Ann Voskamp

My home is anointed. For your sake, yours should be too!

God’s Got Us: My Refuge and My Fortress

Psalm 91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
    nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
    and see the recompense of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
    the Most High, who is my refuge[b]
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
    no plague come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
    the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
    I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.” – Psalm 91

God Says We Will Have Hope!

“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.”-Daniel 12:1

God says we will have hope. Our hope is in Jesus Christ. And Michael, the Great Archangel, will “arise”. And although there may be very difficult times, we will be “delivered”. Through our faith in Jesus, Heaven awaits us 🙂

In the Holy Bible, God says many times: “Do Not Fear”.

July 4, 2024: Our Nation Today!

Our country was formed on July 4, 1776. A Gift from our Creator given well over 200 years ago. A Christian nation, our nation embraced no particular denomination, but make no mistake – it was a Christian nation.

Along the way, we embraced Judeo-Christian values because many of the values embraced by Americans at that time were from the Old and New Testament.

As a nation, we grew and grew, but we always worshipped one God. Because there is ONLY one God. We survived the many challenges we faced as a nation by Trusting and Following our Lord.

Sadly, we are no longer that nation. God has been banned from the public square and many schools. Many schools have forgotten just how precious children are in the site of God and seem to indoctrinate our nation’s children against much of what God has taught them. And many have lost their faith and still more Americans have forgotten the importance of prayer and instead embraced apostasy.

God will not continue to Bless a nation that has so completely rejected Him.

In This World You Will Have Trouble!

There are so many issues in our world that we are worried about. But Jesus said:

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.” – Matthew 24:6-8

But we who belong to Jesus need not fear. For Jesus said:

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (Jesus told u s)-John 16:33

So do not fear. In the end, we will be in Heaven, for all eternity, together.

How To Receive A Strong & Abiding Faith

Faith is a Gift from God! Some have asked me how I have such a deep Faith. Some have praised me for it; some have criticized me for it. But I have always been so grateful that God gave me such a strong and abiding Faith.

And yet I did nothing to obtain it. I did nothing to earn it. I just kept asking God for more Faith, and God gave me the Gift of Faith.

The wonderful thing about that is that my Faith is simply a Gift from God. Which means anyone and everyone can obtain a strong and abiding Faith.

God is just waiting for you to ask, and God will be so happy when you do!

Our Lady Of Perpetual Help

Our Lady of Perpetual Help (also known as our Blessed Mother) is a Catholic title associated with a “15th-century Byzantine icon” and a Marian apparition. The image has been enshrined in a church in Rome since 1499. According to some it was painted “810-865 years after the death of Christ”.

The “Marian apparition” was the appearance by Our Blessed Mother Mary to a young girl in great need who asked Our Blessed Mother Mary for help! Since then, many have prayed before the icon of Our Blessed Mother Mary holding the baby Jesus for help, and received it.

Many people all over the word pray the Novena of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The feast day of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is celebrated today.

The miracles that have occurred can not be counted…

Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help

“1. Behold, O Mother of Perpetual Help, at thy feet a wretched sinner, who has recourse to thee and trusts in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me; I hear all men call thee the refuge and hope of sinners: be therefore my refuge and my hope. Help me for the love of Jesus Christ: hold out thy hand to a fallen wretch, who commends himself to thee and dedicates himself to be thy servant forever. I praise and thank God, who of His great mercy hath given me this confidence in thee, a sure pledge of my eternal salvation. Alas, it is only too true that in the past I have fallen miserably, because I did not come to thee. I know that with thy help I shall conquer; I know that thou wilt help me, if I commend myself to thee; but I am fearful lest in the occasions of sin I shall forget to call upon thee and so I shall be lost. This grace, then, do I ask of thee; for this I implore thee, as much as I can and know how to do; namely, that in the assaults of hell I may ever run to thy protection and may say to thee: Mary, help me; Mother of Perpetual Help, permit me not to lose my God.

Hail Mary, three times.

2. O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant me ever to be able to call upon thy powerful name, since thy name is the help of the living and the salvation of the dying. Ah, Mary most pure, Mary most sweet, grant that thy name from this day forth may be to me the very breath of life. Dear Lady, delay not to come to my assistance whenever I call upon thee; for in all the temptations that assail me, in all the necessities that befall me, I will never leave off calling upon thee, ever repeating: Mary, Mary. What comfort, what sweetness, what confidence, what tenderness fills my soul at the sound of thy name, at the very thought of thee! I give thanks to our Lord, who for my sake hath given thee a name so sweet, so lovable, so mighty. But I am not content merely to speak thy name; I would utter it for very love of thee; it is my desire that love should ever remind me to name thee, Mother of Perpetual Help.

Hail Mary, three times.

3. O Mother of Perpetual Help, thou art the dispenser of every grace that God grants us in our misery; it is for this cause that He hath made thee so powerful, so rich, so kind, that thou mightiest assist us in our miseries. Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come unto thee; come once more to my assistance, for I commend myself to thee. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul. Enroll me among thy most faithful servants; take me under thy protection and it is enough for me: yes, for if thou protect me, I shall fear nothing; not my sins, for thou wilt obtain for me their pardon and remission; not the evil spirits, for thou art mightier than all the powers of hell; not even Jesus, my Judge, for He is appeased by a single prayer from thee. I fear only that through my own negligence I may forget to recommend myself to thee and so I shall be lost. My dear Lady, obtain for me the forgiveness of my sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance and the grace to have recourse to thee at all times, O Mother of Perpetual Help.

Hail Mary, three times.” – EWTN
