The Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On this day O dear Mother Mary -O Shining Star of the Sea- please intercede for the United States in stopping hurricane Ike from taking lives and protect all property from all harm from wind, sea, or rain. We ask all the mighty angels to intercede in a supernatural way in protecting us as well. We ask all this according to the Ordaining Will of the Father. If it is not the Ordaining Will of the Father, we ask that the petition be changed to the Ordaining Will of the Father.

Fr. Mark's - If the Hurricanes of Temptation Rise Against Thee

“Whoever you are that perceive yourself during this mortal existence to be rather drifting in treacherous waters, at the mercy of the winds and the waves, than walking on firm ground, turn not away your eyes from the splendour of this guiding star, unless thou wish to be submerged by the storm. ... Look at the star, call upon Mary. ... With her for guide, you shall not go astray, while invoking her, you shall never lose heart ... if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favour, you shall reach the goal.” Bernard of Clairvaux


REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

The Real War on Terror

Indigenous Grandmothers (the "Council") at Vatican

Grandmothers To Pope: Drop Edict
The Council did not come to plant a "conquering" flag, but to lay a flag of peace and conciliation on the ground of the Vatican Square in front of the door to St. Peter's Basilica. On the flag was laid a sacred staff and sacred prayer feathers, including a written statement from the Council, along with special items to be gifted to the Pope Benedict XVI. The grandmothers then lit smudging incense (sage, cedar, copal), gathered in a circle, and planted the prayer.

CERN - Atom Smasher/Collider

Discovery or doom? Collider stirs debate

"But let me let you in on a secret: We physicists are not driven to do this because of better color television," he added. "That's a spin-off. We do this because we want to understand our role and our place in the universe."

First off, WE were placed here to know, love, and serve HIM and be happy with HIM in eternity!

That's their role and place.

The quicker EVERYONE gets this, the easier LIFE will be, not only for them, but for all of us!

My Brain Tumor

A biopsy was performed, which showed a large, grade IV tumor. In answer to my question, the oncologist estimated that I had six months to a year to live. Being read your death sentence is like being a character in one of the old Bette Davis movies.

I believe I was able to withstand this shock because of my Catholic faith, to which I converted in 1998.

We continue to pray.
