My Sanctuary with images

This week the Weekend Challenge from partner GC and me is Sanctuary.

SANCTUARY

My Sanctuary, without thinking more than one second is my Faith. If only I could explain, but there are no words on earth to interpret. Therefore, I usually try to play down my feelings since I can’t clarify them.
I will therefore post a few images for the readers here and pray God will pass on to you what I know to be true.

Today I am for some reason inspired to post these images.

I realize many beliefs do not allow the suffering Christ on their cross, but Traditional Catholics strongly believe you can not have the resurrection without first the suffering!

My Parade of Poems — Vintage Baltimore Catechism

My parade of poems is based and inspired by The Baltimore Catechism. Catholics born before the Modern changes in the Vatican (approx. 1960) will remember learning their catechism from these text books.

One day not very long ago, (last week) I was thinking of the Haiku, a form of poetry that is popular here on WordPress and fun to write. Thinking of a theme, why not The Baltimore Catechism!

I thank dVerse along with other experts as Tanks Tuesday with Colleen for introducing several forms of poetry to me, now; in my advanced senior years. Not sure if she will approve an entire parade of Haiku’s or are they Senryu forms? Whatever! But as I said, inspired by the Baltimore Catechism … here is my parade.

Ta Da ♫
Haiku number 1
***
Created by God
Purpose to Know, Love, and Serve
Eternity Waits

Haiku number 2
***
Trinity One God
Creation — Angels their fall
Sin entered the world

Haiku number 3 
***
Forbidden by God
Willfully crime against Him
Beg daily prayer 

Number 4  
***
Help!  Saviour needed
Jesus born — dies to save us
Grace a gift from God

Number 5  
***
Faith, Hope, Charity
Virtues Gifts ours to receive
Third Person awaits

Number 6
***
Peace of soul to win
Treasures realized are yours
Mission accomplished

Number 7
***
Be smart do your part
All you have to do is ask
Think Pascal's wager

America the Eagle

dVerse

“And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” (Apocalypse 12:14) This prophecy fits the Church, which brings forth Christ into the world. The age we are living in today is again as predicted in — II Thessalonians 2:3 as the great falling away. Since the mid 60’s the Catholic Church has been dumbed down. The Vatican at present has an Anti-Christ . Yet, the Church is flourishing in small pockets worldwide, but especially here in America, the Eagle!
America like Christ appears dead, will rise again!
To continue to nourish the Church while waiting His Second Coming.

After many years of seeking, praying and searching I finally found my way home in the Traditional Catholic Church, the difference is night and day.

U.S. the Eagle
Eagles strongest birds of prey
America tough

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

The Great American Betrayal

GO Dog

I wonder why! Don’t you?
Who is the real party of hate?
Who incites others to harass?

Harass those who want Free Speach.
Harass Trump supporters or worse?


Laugh and approve as hatefuls pose
with a severed head of the President?

Boo, Hoo, and wah-wah they cry mommy,
all the way home! You poor little dears.

Are you so offended AGAIN!



Although it feels AND WE are in that ship! Remember!
Remember a story; Matthew 8;24
It is written: “And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And they came to Him, and awaked Him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish.
And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?

Our day is coming and sooner than you may believe.

Ragtag Daily Prompt / RDP, Word Prompts

Please Allow me to EXPLAIN

I couldn’t resist these two prompt words from two different bloggers here on WordPress. CREDENCE and LUMINESCENCE

Not wanting to sound preachy or assertive; if I do, I apologize; I wanted you to know, especially those who embrace Christianity or think about it.

My post today is about a LUMINESCENCE Flower, a Forever Flower.
What is this a Forever Flower, you may ask? Speaking now of Jesus arouses another question; belief or CREDENCE of why Catholics honor His Mother? She is the Forever Flower and misunderstood by many. It grieves my heart that so many who consider they are Christians yet, miss the inspiration of her privileged grace.

They seem to mistaken her place as a glory possessed by her, not given by God, Himself. Meaning, she who forever, always in His mind, at the perfect time, He created His Masterpiece. His plan! God, who is all-knowing, KNEW.

Allow me, please to explain.

“And there are three who give testimony in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one.” 1John 5;7
The Word is Jesus, who, as prophesized, would become A Man with, along with His Divine nature, would have a human nature. Therefore, He needed a human Mother. Consider a woman who would carry God; had to be perfect because God is perfect. Thinking; of the Ark — “So the priests and the Levites were sanctified, to carry the ark of the Lord the God of Israel.” 1 Paralipoenon 1 Chronicles 15-14

To dishonor, His Mother is to dishonor Jesus along with His Will, His plan.

As Jesus came to us through Mary, we imitate Him and find Jesus through Mary’s Forever Flower of grace growing in souls who understand this mystery.

“Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.” Luke 1;48

The Forever Flower of Grace

Word of the Day Challenge

What the WORLD NEEDS NOW IS God’s ORDER, NOT a

NEW WORLD ORDER

The opposite of Hope is Despair! Today so many of us live on fear, which is one of the ploys of communism. What do we have today, FEAR! DESPAIR, no HOPE for the future. We tend to believe what we hear and what we hear is what the New World Order wants YOU to hear, which is why you already see so much censorship. Another tactic of communism.
Beginning with … “that’s not a ‘politically correct’ jingle.” Surrender of Freedom of speech!
That’s what comes with the New World Order. We live in a time where those who hate conservativeness; those who live with this hate. Hate another point of view, hate God, desire only a world without God.

Perhaps we are getting very close to sliding down that slippery slope but into what? The world, the Church both seem to be sliding together into the mud. Yes, we have God’s promise He will always be with us. However, He never intended for us to seek a modern religion that suits our lifestyle.
If you research while going back in time, those who seek God should know that when Jesus was on earth, He said when He returns would He find FAITH upon the earth. Speaking of the Church, He founded. “But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, (Second Coming) shall He find, think you, faith on earth?” Luke 18:8
Today, the Roman Catholic Church is in apostasy (Look at what the so-called pope is saying these days.) There is still a remnant, pockets of Traditional Catholics all over the world. Click to search

Ignore the communist tricks to imprison you; fear them NOT. Vote your conscience and, above all, PRAY for Godly ORDER!

In Defense of Christianity

Again we are challenged with Paint Chips as pictured here

 

When it comes to The Faith, I want the whole enchilada because Jesus founded One Church, and one of those things is not like the other. A brick building with the word Church does not mean it is THEE Church. Christ’s teaching is not as a lipstick fluctuating with vast changes of shades and colors. As you learned back in the day, the marks of the Church are One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. The Church is not like a Sand Dollar crawling on the bottom; instead, it is a coral reef, anchored, and anchored in Truth. Truth is our nectar in life; the sweet taste of Truth is quite peachy for lack of a better word and the only word left in this challenge of words, known as Paint Chips.

Seek to find This Truth

Words never to fail

I Believe Because

I Believe Because

Thinking of my recent followers, now, for some time, I notice several are atheistic.
I feel compelled to explain why I believe in God since many of my followers are doubters.
Thinking along these lines journeyed deep into my nature as to why I believe in God. I have always accepted, but there was a time when I doubted. It was that time in my life I wanted my will to be done; therefore, I pushed God on the back burner. I notice something was amiss in my life; it was peace, so I began to pray again. With prayer anew, daily activities resulted at the end of unrest. This END forced me to the BEGINNING of peace.

Why do I believe in God? I will write about in subsequent writings beginning with a series of posts.

Today with this post I believe, because I pray!
