MESSAGE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
June 25, 2015
"Dear children! Also today the Most High gives me the grace to be able to love you and to call you to conversion. Little children, may God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace; not sorrow but joy and peace must begin to reign in the heart of every person - but without God you will never find peace. Therefore, little children, return to God and to prayer so that your heart may sing with joy. I am with you and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call." 06/25/2015

Am I My Brother's Keeper?
Because God is the Father of orphans and defender of widows, we need to reach out to all those who are lonely and abandoned. God watches over and guards all of his creation. In a special way, he is the "Father of the fatherless and defender of windows" (Ps 68:5). Particularly in the ancient world, orphans and widows were the most vulnerable members of society. With no one to care for them, they were defenseless. God cares so much for us that he sent Jesus Christ, his only Son, to save us (cf. Jn 3:16). Jesus was especially close to the sick, hungry, lonely and poor, and he pointed to the Good Samaritan as a model to follow (d. Lk 10:29-37). In this way, he gives us the answer to Cain's question: "Am I my brother's keeper?" (Gen 4:9). Every man is his "brother's keeper," for God has entrusted us to one another.
July 2, 2015: "Dear Children, I am calling you to spread the faith in my Son - your faith. You, my children illuminated by the Holy Spirit, my apostles, transmit it to others - to those who do not believe, who do not know, who do not want to know - but for that you must pray a lot for the gift of love, because love is the mark of true faith - and you will be apostles of my love. Love always, anew, revives the pain and the joy of the Eucharist, it revives the pain of the Passion of my Son, by which He showed you what it means to love immeasurably; it revives the joy for having left you His body and blood to feed you with Himself - and in this way, to be one with you. Looking at you with tenderness, I feel immeasurable love which strengthens me in my desire to bring you to a firm faith, Firm faith will give you joy and happiness on earth and in the end the encounter with my Son. This is His desire. Therefore, live Him, live love, live the light that always illuminates you in the Eucharist. I implore you to pray a lot for your shepherds, to pray so as to have all the more love for them because my Son gave them to you to feed you with His body and to teach you love. Therefore, also you are to love them. But, my Children, remember, love means to endure and to give, and never, ever to judge. Thank you.."
The Saints Were Not Followers
... We are Christians, called by God not to live for ourselves alone, but for others. True, that's not the way most people live. But we, as Christians, are not called to live "as most people." We are called to be counter-cultural, if need be. How else is the "Kingdom of God" here on earth going to be established? When we say "Our Father" and pray, "Thy Kingdom come," Jesus might well reply "So what are you doing to bring it about?"
I recall the story of a man who was overwhelmed by the suffering in the world. He angrily spoke to God in his frustration and complained to God saying, Why don't you do something about it?" To which God replied, "I did. I created you!"
During World War II, an American soldier came across a statue of Jesus whose two hands were torn off by the bombing of the city that our troops were now occupying. The soldier was inspired to do something which anyone passing by would have reason to reflect over- he took a piece of cardboard and wrote the words, "He has no hands but yours," placing the sign in front of the statue. We are all called to do what we can to establish the Kingdom of God here on earth, not in the way that other people do it, but in our own unique way, and to encourage others to do likewise, but in their own way. The Saints weren't afraid to be different, including St. Bernadette, and we shouldn't be afraid either.

He has no hands but ours.
Our Blessed Mothers Medjugorje Message 1986: " I wish you to be active in living and spreading the messages."
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received only what you have given.
St. Francis of Assisi
Let us pray with Mother Teresa: "Do you want my hands, my God, to assist all the day those who need assistance? My God, I give you my hands. Do you want my feet to go all the day, each day, towards those who need a friend? Today, my God, I give you my feet. Do you want my voice, my God, so that it speaks all the day to those who need your words of love? My God, I give you my voice today. Do you want my heart, my God, from dawn to the evening, to love without exception? My God, I give you my heart today."

HEALING SERVICES WITH FATHER WILLIAM KIEl
A retired priest of the Greensburg Diocese, will lead an evening of prayer and music at St. Michaels Church, 15 Robinson St., DuBois, PA on Sunday, July 19 at 6:30 P.M. Fr. Kiel is a former Biology teacher at Greensburg - Salem High School. He came to the priesthood later in life and was ordained in 1993.
A year and half after ordination he was blessed for healing by a fellow priest and the Lord healed him of a lifelong back problem. That healing lead him into healing ministry as he had a great desire to share the Lords Healing love with others.
Individuals that he prayed with reported healing "I didn't understand it at the time." Father said. "It was truly a gift of the Holy Spirit. I laid hands on people and prayed. They began to share about their healings." Prayers go up and blessings come down - God does the healing.
The service will include scripture reading, homily, and Benediction. Music by 'Shalom" . 'Am I my brother's keeper' - please join us in praying for the healing of others. All are welcome.
ALSO, JULY 19TH AT 'THE CROSS ON THE Hill' - 3 P.M. 2041 Mt. Zion Road, Weedville, PA 15868 (weather permitting) - Scripture reading, music, and prayers for healing with Fr. Kiel.
SPARKS OF LIGHT
"Every day I am happier to exist, to have been born, and even happier because the Lord has placed me in a position in life such that I can't worry about myself. I've never had much time in life to think about myself, how I felt, if I was happy or sad, good or bad. I've always had to take care of others, and I realized that they were my human, Christian, and religious advancement. For many years, I have been happily married to the Son of the carpenter of Nazareth, who Himself is a carpenter by profession. By walking with Him in a perennial newness and joy of fife, I am discovering more each day that to serve is to reign. There is no greater, more stupendous, richer, or more fascinating kingdom than the heart of man. To be at the service of the Fatherly heart of God to serve mankind is truly to experience the privilege of reigning"

"As I look back, pain was always a preparation for me. The Lord allowed pain before accomplishing anything He asked me to do. It made me more aware of my own weakness, my own faults, my own incompetence, my own lack of knowledge ... it made me appreciate the fact that God must do everything."
Mother M. Angelica
Take a Chance on God
One of the lessons Jesus teaches in the gospel (Matthew 25:14-30) is that his followers must be willing to "take a chance," specifically to take a chance on God. We're a lot like that third servant, however. We prefer to avoid risk, to keep our lives tied up securely in familiar patterns. Like him, we feel safer in our hole and closing it up behind us. Unfortunately, when we eliminate risk, we also eliminate possibility, opportunity and growth. Go out on a limb with Jesus. Be not afraid.

Father Ralph A. Diorio, Jr.
To offer oneself in total surrender to God is the vocation of each Christian - married, single, priest or religious - but to act in the very person of Christ, in Persona Christi, is the privilege and burden of his priest. Each Priest must offer himself as a sacrifice. Fr. Ralph A. DiOrio, JR. does this with great humility and love for Christ and his people. Fr. Ralph emphasizes that "The Hour of healing is here for us". "The Healing of man occasions nothing more but an event which creates faith. The gospel produces love and concerns for everyone. To heal, not to injure....To help, not to hurt .... To strengthen and sustain .... With patience, compassion and trust."
Bethany Center of Spirituality, Retreat Center; PO Box 129, Frenchville, PA 16836 offers weekend retreats and other events of a spiritual nature all year long. A peace filled rural setting-God is spoken of here!

Lincoln Spoke These Words to General Daniel Sickles
"I went to my room and got down on my knees. Never had I prayed with so much earnestness. I felt I must put all my trust in Almighty God. He gave us the best country. He alone could save it. I had tried my best to do my duty and had found myself unequal to the task. The burden was more than I could bear. I asked God to help us and give us victory. I was sure my prayer was answered. I had no misgivings about the result at Gettysburg. "
At Lourdes, Fatima, Akita and numerous other approved apparition sites, how often has our Blessed Mother sought to draw mankind back to its Savior and to warn us of the consequences if we do not cease offending Him! Yet we see our dear country continue heedlessly to abandon its Christian roots and enact laws in defiance of the Law of God. As we recommend our personal intentions to Our Lady let us also unite in begging her to restore decency and dignity to our land, so that we will once again be "one nation under God".
Sincerely yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
The Carmelite Nuns of Buffalo
