This is a Fight Between Rage & Division vs. Love & Unity

This is a historic time. The devil is emboldened like never before. My theory is God is allowing that to get it ALL exposed.

What do we do? UNITE!! Don’t get pulled into the temptation of “in-fighting.” That’s a favorite tactic of the devil. I have had to use my “God-filter” several times, and chose to simply offer another perspective. Sometimes I just resisted all together.

I am 100% dedicated to UNITING all of us to our Eucharistic Lord and each other. We need to grow our force; our light.

The devil is a totalitarian super power right now. We must do the “David thing” and realize that size does not matter. What matters is trust in the power of God, united as an obnoxiously loving family.

I’d like to share my favorite Psalm that appears on Sundays in the Divine Office.

Psalm 63:

O God, you are my God, for you I long;
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you
like a dry, weary land without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.

For your love is better than life,
my lips will speak your praise.
So I will bless you all my life,
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet,
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you.
On you I muse through the night
for you have been my help;
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast (I raise my hand to grab God’s when I pray this line).

Today is also the Feast of St. Joan of Arc. Let me close with this quote from St. Joan:

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”

LOVE YOU! LOVE YOU! LOVE YOU!
