Supernatural Reality, true story

Why did the fallen angels fall?

The spoken word explains that God revealed to them, His plan for redemption.  That He, God would take human nature through Mary, suffer and die for us.  The fallen angels through Pride, could not accept Mary’s role with such privileges.

I am tired of hearing Protestants wrongly accuse Catholics of worshipping Mary!  If they only knew what they are missing!

Jesus was delighted with His mother, by keeping the Commandments He so honored her, as we all who call ourselves Christians should accept her. The Bible tells us exactly that! “For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.” [Luke 1:48]
Mary was created by God the Father to carry Our Lord within her womb; therefore she was created perfect, and freed from original sin in other words brought forth into this world in a state of absolute sanctity. If anyone could imagine that Jesus, who is the Second Person of the Trinity could be part of world contamination (fallen nature) due to the sin of Adam and Eve, does not understand the purity of God.

“My hour has not yet come,”
spoken words at Cana; yet
she knew because she asked
He would yield at her request.

Impossible to worship Mary
The more we love her
love for Him magnified
affirmed — Luke 1; 46

Story about a ROCK

I found this very interesting, and it goes along with my previous post here.

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen had this to say:
In the history of the world, only one tomb has ever had a rock rolled before it, and a soldier guard set to watch it to prevent the dead Man within from rising; that was the tomb of Christ on the evening of the Friday called Good. What spectacle could be more ridiculous than armed soldiers keeping their eyes on a Corpse? But sentinels were set, lest the dead walk, the silent speak, and the pierced Heart quicken to the pulse of life. They said He was dead; they knew He was dead; they said He would never rise again, and yet they watched! In His Resurrection He has given the earth it’s most serious wound — the empty tomb. And to us our greatest hope. ~ Fulton J. Sheen

Having posted Sheen’s quote here, it may be those guards were set to guard others buried, but never because of fear of the dead rising. Remember also, in those days it was never recorded that His enemies denied what happened that glorious day when He proved He indeed was God. Nor did they ever find what they believed was a stolen body. The truth is Longinus – the centurion who pierced the side of Jesus later converted (as well as many others) and became a Saint within the Church, he is known today as Saint Longinus.

Proof of Christianity for the Unbeliever

My Christian and especially my Traditional Catholic Faith has been questioned on previous posts here recently, the unbeliever insists on proof.  This is my proof below for any interested readers.

I apologize for the scandal the current leadership of the Novus Ordo (mainstream Vatican II religion) is inflicting on the word “Catholic” just another persecution of the Faith.  In God’s perfect time will end;  even the gates of Hell will never prevail.

Thinking about the many world religions and the good they have within them. Yes, in my opinion, they all have some good which comes from God. The fullness of good, however, comes from the religion that God founded.

How do we know?   Jesus Christ, God became a man, founded the only True 100% fullness, and not the other man religions which some even existed before Christianity.
One way would be to look at all their founders, line them up and see which of them was pre-announced, only one; Jesus Christ! No doubt this is why we date historical events

as

BC = Before Christ and AD = After His Death. Finally when He did come as the Old Testament described, He was expected therefore He is the ONE correct logic would research.
Looking at His life but especially His death, who else ever wrought a religion that began with defeat and suffering but conquered His ignominious death on the Cross. A faith that suffered one persecution after another held together and made stronger with each death of the martyrs which were the seeds of the Church. Meaning the sacrifice of their lives leads to the conversion of others. Jesus proved He is Divine when He rose from the dead by His power, and in those days even His enemies never denied that.

Poetry

Recently a discussion developed with my last post which is the inspiration of this post below:

“Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God’s realm is His Kingdom where His will is done; it is I believe, eternity, a supernatural dimension absent of time and always present without ever beginning.

As long as we are living here on earth, we have time; we can make decisions and choose our next move. We reason with our God-given conscience convincing us to make the correct choice. When we make the wrong choice innocence suffers from the guilty and negativity comes into the world.
Think about your own life and see your loved ones who have suffered because of your choice, it happens to all of us; we make mistakes in judgment. Back in the day, there was a song that went like this; “We always hurt the ones we love, the ones we shouldn’t hurt at all.” Certainly food for thought!
When our time is up, and we breathe our last breath, our will is fixed forever; we can not change if after that fact. If we pass away into eternity, not wanting God, He gives us our desire.

The atheist like to say, your God is terrible, He sends negativity into the world, they fail to see because of Pride, that when one wakes up and finds they are blind, it is because they plucked out their eyes of their own will.

It is God’s will that we here on earth; as in heaven, His will be done! While on earth He offers us time to reason what His will is. To pray, the power of prayer is genuine power, ask, and you shall receive. If you don’t ask, you will not receive. Pride is the downfall of many in this regard.

It is His will that all are saved, but as the Bible states; “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!” Matthew 7; 14.
