Why not just Will it; that the very fact of His Will purchases us? It is… Continue reading A World Without HIS Cross – WHAT IF?

I kept asking myself, how did this happen? Why would God allow these evils to continue day after day? I was alone… Continue reading My Wrinkle for what its worth
The Saint Who – PROVOKED
Thu, 15 Mar 2018 16:41:41 +0000
Today the word prompt is “provoke” immediately it came to my mind to write a little about Saint Venantius, who at the age of 15 years old provoked his executioners for preaching Christ to others.

Is it Music or NOISE?
Wed, 14 Mar 2018 16:01:28 +0000
Last night for some reason it was difficult for me to fall asleep, “oh no, not another night of tossing,” I thought.  I also had a notion of tuning in to some Gregorian Chant and soon discovered that ZZZZZZZ’s and the chants got along very nicely together.

My story in short. A cradle Catholic here who still can hear the nun’s words, “you children have been born with a silver spoon in your mouth.” Then she would explain what that meant.

Uncompromising Truth-Impossible
Thu, 08 Mar 2018 18:41:29 +0000
Truth     Impossible because it still IS! Truth is UNCOMPROMISING because it is what IS.  The Truths of what God has revealed are one example of “uncompromising.”     The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Compromise makes a good umbrella, but a weak roof.   via Daily Prompt: Uncompromising #uncompromising #wordprompt
