Did it ever occur to you that sin is glamorous? that's why it is attractive?
all things are vanity
the loftiest endeavour
the most ingenious milestone
if not done in His name
we are going nowhere too fast
we blast emails to all
but do we really have a message
we are regressing in our progress
balance digital with analog
keyboard with blue skies
victories for self with sharing with others
fear of hurt with risk of loving
we lose easily because
we want so much to win
in our desire to do everything
we have done nothing
what we can really do
are simple yet all-encompassing
what we can really give
are small yet it can change people
so profoundly beyond our imagination
if we truly do and truly give
(This is fr. Fr. Jun)
Happiness is when something good happens to you and you get this nice feeling.
Joy is an inner disposition or a posture of the heart that does not depend on outer circumstances.
"Doing something because it’s “right” can be tricky. If our hearts are not in a position of humility and dependence on God, it can give us nothing more than the satisfaction that we have been obedient. By contrast, when we take on Jesus’ disposition of humble surrender, we don’t become satisfied; we become holy!"
Are you an often-sad Christian like I am (sometimes)? Someone pointed out to me that I am sinning if I am often gloomy. It's because most likely I am in doubt.
"Scripture promises that we will be blessed far more—both materially and spiritually.......Not only will God meet our own needs, he will answer our prayers, heal our wounds, dispel our gloom, guide our steps, and renew our strength. What a deal!"
Do you really believe that? Enough to say you are happy and satisfied because you have God?
Lord, dispel the cloud of gloom hovering over my face.
(Can anyone send me a better formatted version of this? Every time I get to read something like this, I become so very sad. I'm sad because I'm trying so very hard to be good and all I would hear is this -- the impending destruction of the world. But I trust that God is just in whatever He pleases to do.)
Is this of any relevance in the light of what happened in Asia on
26th of December?
Independent of any creed or Religion, it is better to be prepared
in good Terms with GOD, though we never know when we will be leaving
this world .... THE LAST SECRET OF FATIMA.
The Church has given permission to reveal to the people the last
the message. The Blessed Virgin Appeared to three children in
Portugal in 1917. This is a proven fact.
One of these children is still alive, her name is Lucia and she is a
Recluse nun and lives in a European monastery. Lucia disclosed the
message for the first time to Pope Pio XXII, who after reading it
and stored it away without making it public. Later John XXIII read
and in the same manner as his predecessor, kept it out of public eye
because he knew that once revealed, it will bring desperation and
to the human kind. Now the time has come and permission has been
granted from Pope John Paul II to reveal it to the children of God
order not to create panic, but to make people aware of this
message so everybody can be prepared.
The Virgin told Lucia: "Go my child and tell the world what will
pass during the years 1950-2005. Men are not practicing the
commandments that our Father has given us. Evil is governing the
and is harvesting hate and resentment all over. Men will fabricate
mortal weapons that destroy the world in minutes and half of the
race will be destroyed. The war will begin against Rome and there
be conflicts amongst religious orders. "God will allow all natural
phenomenons like smoke, hale, cold, water, fire, flood, earthquakes,
winds and inclement weather will slowly batter the planet. These
will come to pass in the year 2004. Those who do not believe, this

punish severely those who do not believe in Him, those who despise

& nbsp; to my son Jesus Christ. God helps the world but all of those who do
show fidelity and loyalty will be destroyed. Father Agustin who
in Fatima said that Pope Paul VI gave him permission to visit
Sister Lucia who is a recluse nun (she does not leave the monastery
allowed to receive any visitors). Father Agustin said that she was
greatly overwhelmed to receive him and told him:
"Father, our Lady is very sad because nobody is interested in her
prophecy of 1917, though the righteous are walking through a narrow
the evil ones are walking through an ample road that is leading them
straight to their destruction. Believe me father, the punishment will
come very soon. Many souls will be lost, many nations will disappear
the earth, but in the middle of all th ese, if men reflect, pray and
practice good deeds, the world can be saved. On all of these, if men
persist with its evil, the world will be lost forever. The time has
for all to pass on the message of our Blessed Lady to their
friends and to the entire world. Start praying to make penitence
catastrophes are near. Due to this, many who were far from the

China, the Jews and Protestants, all will return believing and
Worshipping God our Creator, in his beloved son and in our Blessed
Mother Virgin Mary "WHAT AWAITS US?
Everywhere there will be "Peace Talks" but punishments will come. A

THE WAR. A POWERFUL ARMY WILL DOMINATE ALL THROUGH EUROPE AND THE
NUCLEAR WAR WILL COMMENCE.
This war will destroy everything. Darkness will fall over us. For 72
hours (three days) and the one third of humanity that survives this
obscurity and sacrifice will commence to live a new era, they will be
good people. In a very cold night, 10 minutes before midnight, A
QUAKE will shake the earth for 8 hours. This will be the third
that God is who governs the earth. The righteous and those who
propagate the faith and the message the Lady of Fatima SHOULD NOT

souls, remember to light the blessed candles. Prepare a Sacred altar

infinite mercy.... All will be dark; IN THE SKY A GREAT MYSTIC CROSS

May be you will survive this catastrophe. Do not forget that God's

Did you know that Vasula Ryden said something about the towers in NY
last September 11, 1991? Christina Gallagher also said something
September 11, 1999? Something to the effect that America will be
destroyed if they do not turn to Prayers. And do you remember the
fluvial Marian procession spearheaded by Filipinos, the group of
Keithley, Lydia Sison, etc. and participated in by many countries
held in NY also last September 11, 1999 for the Lady of all Nations?
They are asking for Prayers, more Prayers, More Rosaries - because
one thing accordingly, because of the uncertainty of the times and
for the worse due to the war more women (esp in NY) are resorting to
abortion and they are being Helped or encouraged even more. Despite
prevalence already before, now it has increased due to panic. We
asked to pray unceasingly for them all. &nbs p; Also, this prayer to Our
