Six Word Story to beware of!
Where are the police?
(Continuation of my series beginning here). Series of why I believe in God.
The story you are about to read now written without exaggeration. For a believer, not a good idea to lie or stretch the truth; it would be equivalent to hammering the nails in the hands of Jesus. I mention this since I hope the following story will always be believed since our family miracle story is one reason I believe in God.
Years ago, my daughter, with her husband, was told they would not conceive, disappointed as they were, they chose to adopt. A miracle itself, it is challenging to adopt babies. However, they successfully adopted not one but two babies, years apart. (Not twins)
When the second child a boy, I will call Denis. Denis was healthy and loving, but after three years, we lost him. He passed away quite suddenly. (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) The couple is devasted and confused as to why God allowed this to happen, why take our child?
The sadness that followed, there are no words to describe it. My daughter grieving, asked me who she could pray to intercede for her to God. All she wanted was consolation! A reason to go on living!
I told her to pray to St. Therese of the Child Jesus because her parents lost all their male children, and St. Therese promised that she would help those still living when in her eternity. Her feast day on the Traditional Catholic calendar is Oct. 3. (Vatican II council while adapting to the world changed much of the Traditions one was the removal of some Saints, changes to the calendar of saints sometime in the ’60s.) BTW, Catholics do not worship the Saints; rather, we look to them as an example of their life. We are not praying to the dead; Catholics believe Saints are alive living their eternity.
Trying to brief this long story into a shorter version, I continue.
The family prayed a novena for a consolation to St. Therese. Shortly after that, the Vatican II religion allowed her relics; relics of St. Therese carried throughout the world in 2000, for veneration. My daughter read in the news that these holy relics were coming to a nearby Church. While there, they pressed their loved one’s picture to the relic and asked only for help to get on with their life.
Now the miracle!
Ten months later, my daughter gave birth to a boy, and to add to the joy; his birthday is on the feast day of St.Therese, Oct.3. Oct.3 on the Tradition Catholic calendar. God in heaven loves the number three. Therefore He graced her with two other children totaling three.
No one will ever take the place of our Saint-Denis, who also has answered many prayers for us. He was only three, but it is a pious belief to imagine the souls who reside in heaven are at the prime age of 33, the period Jesus Christ died for the world.

Part 2 of Why I believe in God; the Christian God; no other. Why not believe in God; are some afraid they can’t live up to His standards? Few do! But, He forgives when we are trying. Trying is the keyword! We all believe in something why not believe in something that will reward you in the end.
Even the atheist believes in something else why glorify anything.
The readers will agree that people living in the world believe all sorts of things, from Aliens, Flat earthers, Pyramid power, the Easter bunny, Santa Clause to the Tooth fairy. Folklore, including pagan religions and so on. Why then only the Christian doctrine that the atheist/nonbelievers will object to so vehemently? The reason, found in several places written within the pages of the Bible, one such area is Luke 6:22. “Blessed shall you be when men hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.”
The atheist/nonbeliever believe in God, but won’t admit it, or they wouldn’t care what Christians think; they don’t care about other ideas, yes they may laugh and scoff but not waste any energy on them.
Why attack something so harmless as a belief unless it is accurate and they know it to be true.
In my previous post, I ended with this, “I believe because God proved what was prophesied beforehand, (Old Testament) and for over 2000 years, no one has proved otherwise.” We journey again to His time on earth and even before His time. What sort of person is this who even before He was born True happenings were recorded and happened.
How could such a man, like Jesus, born in poverty, unknown to the world, have such influence? Influence on the importance of keeping time and dates, as one example!
Anno domini Latin for A.D. (IN THE YEAR OF THE LORD,”) Words that refer to the birth of Jesus Christ. B.C. stands for “before Christ.” A.D. stands for anno domini, Latin for “in the year of the lord,” and refers specifically to the birth of Jesus Christ. “B.C.” stands for “before Christ.”
The idea to count years from the birth of Jesus Christ was first standardized under the Julian and Gregorian calendars. The system spread throughout Europe and the Christian world during the centuries that followed.
Again the nonbelievers couldn’t handle that, so they tried adopting a method known as BCE/CE since it was religious neutrality. They still can’t get away from the Before and After Christ. Since C.E., the abbreviation for “Common Era” is used to mark time in the same way. B.C. means “before Christ,” and B.C.E. stands for “Before the Common Era.” What is that COMMON ERA? It’s SUPERNATURAL! It’s GOD! Its Before Christ.
We can’t hide from Him. You can change the meaning of words or twist them; it always comes back to the beginning. The Truth!
Some readers may enjoy this series; some may not, but thank you in advance for your patience. Reading here, the why of it!
Post number one of why I BELIEVE IN GOD.
Most importantly, know that God does not need us; we need Him.
He created us with this inner desire to seek Him. Most of the time, we try to fill that void with material things; we feel fulfilled for a short time until we begin to hunger again.
God wants us to be happy and gave us a rule book to be satisfied, the Ten Commandments. He wrote them in stone; they will NOT CHANGE, with the times.
Atheists like to say, if there is a God, He hates us because we suffer.
God loves order, look at the universe and His creations, if there were no God, how is it possible that nature has order. Evil loves confusion; look at what is going on today in the world. We are in a spiritual battle! God allows it because man desires not to obey Him who created us. Therefore God, like a good parent, sees us.
Parents, too, the ones who CARE. Parents depending on the child’s age will leave them alone to make their own mistakes (to learn), the younger ones a parent might remove some privilege—grounding them, taking away a treasured “whatever,” hoping to get them on the right track again. God does that also when He sees humans going in a harmful direction; He allows them what they pray for even if it leads them to mistakes. We control much of our confusion, and many times the innocent are caught up in it. Like weeding your garden, some of the good gets pulled out with the weeds. That is life!
Let us, however, start from the beginning. God in the Heaven, Father the Creator, Son the Redeemer, and Holy Ghost the guide and giver of Gifts. All Three but One God. A Mystery of our Faith! Be as little children. “And there are three who give testimony in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one.“1 John5:7” And there are three that give testimony on earth: the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three are one.”1 John 5:8
Notice it is written the word “US,” plural, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Image and likeness refer to our immortal soul. Other creations had a mortal soul, in that when life was absent, the soul no longer existed.
God did not want us to be robots; He wants us to love Him. Heaven was open to us until sin came into the world.
Heaven was shut because of sin, but God the Redeemer was so willing to sacrifice, and God His Father agreed to be appeased by His willingness.
A wink of God’s eyes could have again opened the gates of Heaven, but would you have known His love, seen His example of His life in the name of Jesus, appreciated Him, and what limits your creator was willing to go for you.
Atheism says God hates us because we suffer. Study His life and see suffering, poverty, pain, misunderstanding, death. The Jewish nation, His people, never denied what is written of Him in that regard.
I believe because I prayed.
I believe because God proved what was prophesied beforehand, (Old Testament) and for over 2000 years, no one has proved otherwise.

“Because He that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is His name.” Luke 1;49
Impossible to love her more than her Son, she will always lead you to her Son.
One day while I was explaining to my friend why we honor Mary, she listened and heard. Her young daughter was in the hospital, she was on her way to visit, stopping at the long red light, her eyes looking this way and that way, she saw a Church down the street with a giant statue there of Jesus.
Her daughter was very seriously ill, and she, my friend, decided it was time to pray for her, she continued driving but made a turn around to the Church building to pray at the Church. When she pulled up to the building, getting out of her car, it was not Jesus, but Mary’s figure beckoned her to come into the Church.
Later she mentioned to me her experience and said, “Mary led me to Jesus.” My friend was soon after Baptised as well as her daughter.
Upon waking this Holy Saturday, I began to meditate on what was going on this day with Our Lord Jesus Christ—knowing that the Blessed Sacrament was no longer present in the Church Tabernacle. By this action, it represented Jesus was in the tomb. The Creed we say indicates that Jesus “suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell!” Hell, in this sense, a place where the Beatific Vision was absent, a waiting place for those who awaited the gates of Heaven to open, that they will march with Jesus Christ through those gates with Jesus leading them.
Think: How happy they must have been, finally, Jesus fulfilled the reason for His becoming our God-Man; to die that God the Father agreed to be appeased by the Sacrifice of His Son, the Second Person of the Trinity.
“It is finished.”
Yes, the souls Jesus left behind, some in doubt, others His enemies were proud of their deed, others still confused and afraid. However, the souls in Limbo were joyful and filled to the brim with happiness.
Today we know the end of the story, we too should see this day as joyful, since the gates of Heaven are NOW opened for all. All who desire to spend their eternity with God, all who keep His Commandments and all who seek His One, Holy, Apostolic, Catholic Church founded by Jesus or have a desire to find it. Seek, and you shall find!
Here is a little more information on the virus that may help explain a few things that people don’t understand. This is from an immunologist at Johns Hopkins University.
Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share this with others who don’t understand…
It has to do with RNA sequencing…. I.e. genetics.
Seasonal flu is an “all human virus”. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year… you get immunity two ways…through exposure to a virus, or by getting a flu shot.
Novel viruses come from animals…. the WHO tracks novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations). Usually, these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1) (birds in the case of the Spanish flu). But once, one of these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to humans… then it’s a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or acquired immunity.. the RNA sequencing of the genes inside the virus isn’t human, and the human immune system doesn’t recognize it so, we can’t fight it off.
Now…. sometimes, the mutation only allows transfer from animal to human, for years it’s the only transmission is from an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can now transfer human to human… once that happens..we have a new contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation, that’s what decides how contagious, or how deadly it’s gonna be..
H1N1 was deadly….but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as the Spanish flu. Its RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently, too.
Now, here comes this Coronavirus… it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how long…but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December 2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only animals could give it to a person… But here is the scary part…. in just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, “slippery”
This Coronavirus, not being in any form a “human” virus (whereas we would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a rocket. And this was because Humans have no known immunity…doctors have no known medicines for it.
And it just so happens that this particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way the way that it causes great damage to human lungs..
That’s why Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of influenza…. this one is slippery AF. And it’s a lung eater…And, it’s already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with, strain s, and strain L….which makes it twice as hard to develop a vaccine.
We really have no tools in our shed, with this. History has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places have helped in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the Spanish Flu.
Factoid: Henry VIII stayed in his room and allowed no one near him, till the Black Plague passed…(honestly…I understand him so much better now). Just like us, he had no tools in his shed, except social isolation…
And let me end by saying….right now it’s hitting older folks harder… but this genome is so slippery…if it mutates again (and it will). Who is to say, what it will do next.
Be smart folks… acting like you’re unafraid is so not the right thing right now.

•Again, not a judgment this post, just posting this information I bumped into. 💕✌️
Haven’t posted now for a few days, just been busy pondering instead. Here on WordPress, some interesting people come up with prompts to encourage us to write. Today I accept the challenge of one such prompt, “Movie Titles”;SoCS is asking to use the last title of the movie we watched.
Last night I watched a Youtube movie titled “Padre Pio” for those who do not know this person all you need do is search the internet, he is one worth remembering.
The link to the very long and moving movie is … https://tinyurl.com/sa7n7u5
The film and my pondering have haunted me with this thought:
The Church teaches us that Jesus Christ suffered and died for ALL, but not all people care about it! In the Garden just before He was taken to begin His Passion of death, He saw our faces. Each and every one of us He saw. He knew who would appreciate His reason for coming into the world; His goal was not to live but to die for us. He began to sweat His Blood when He saw the faces of those who would not care.
Thinking again, how there is no such thing as “Time” when it refers to God the thought of Him suffering just for me that day, centuries before I was born, overwhelms my mind today!
The word suggested today is TINSEL.
Tinsel in the sense of resplendence, during this Holy Season of Christmas, we aught decorate our soul. Put a little tinsel on your soul as you adorn your home. Take an hour of your very busy days, sit down for an hour and watch this profound video.
