ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
John, Chapter 3, Verse 35
The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him.
The earth is indeed blessed among all the planets in our solar system because of our heaven. As the heavens have made the earth a garden rich with life like so is God’s grace over those who are faithful and love Him. Never forget our Lord asked Peter if he loves Him three times. One time for each of the times Peter denied our Lord on the eve of His crucifixion thus nullifying Peter’s denials and restoring him. Christ asks Peter with each affirmation to 1) feed His lambs 2) tend His sheep and 3) feed His sheep.
First Christ asked Peter if he loves Him more than the others thus establishing Peters leadership on love. Next Christ tells Peter to feed His lambs to give them a core of strength. If we wish to develop strength in ourselves and others it is imperative that we give hope, confidence, a work ethic, confidence, resilience, self-control and courage to the lambs in our charge.
Secondly Christ asks Peter to “tend His sheep” or that is to give a firm purpose to direct their efforts to create the Kingdom of God.
Lastly Christ asks Peter to “Feed His sheep” by having an understanding heart and to be compassionate, faithful, merciful, tolerant, forgiving and generous.
Feast of St. Vincent de Paul
St. Vincent de Paul was a great apostle of charity and brought a great revival of the priesthood in the 17th century. He was born near Dax in the Landes (France) in 1581. As a young priest he was captured by Moorish pirates who carried him to Africa. He was sold into slavery but freed in 1607 when he converted his owner. Having returned to France, he became successively a parish priest and chaplain to the galley-slaves. He founded a religious Congregation under the title of Priests of the Mission or Lazarists (now known as Vincentians), and he bound them by a special way to undertake the apostolic work of charity; he sent them to preach missions, especially to the ignorant peasants of that time, and to establish seminaries. In order to help poor girls, invalids, and the insane, sick and unemployed, he and St. Louise de Marillac founded the Congregation of the Daughters of Charity, now better known as the Sisters of St. Vincent. St. Vincent worked tirelessly to help those in need: the impoverished, the sick, the enslaved, the abandoned, the ignored. He died in 1660 at St. Lazarus's house, Paris. His motto: "Let us love God; but at the price of our hands and sweat of our face."
Remembering that, "God sees you"
A Visit from Moses
Moses chose to go out with his own people, rather than remain in the nation where he was born. That’s because “He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible” (Heb 11:26-27). It was a display of faith when Moses “kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood, so that the Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them” (Heb 11:28). That’s testimony against instant gratification and seeking eternal or permanent joy by being with God (Rev 21:3; 22:4).
35 Promises of God cont.
10. “Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.”-James 5:14-15
"Read these counsels slowly. Pause to meditate on these thoughts. They are things that I whisper in your ear-confiding them-as a friend, as a brother, as a father. And they are being heard by God. I won't tell you anything new. I will only stir your memory, so that some thought will arise and strike you; and so you will better your life and set out along ways of prayer and of Love. And in the end you will be a more worthy soul."
55. 'In te, Domine, speravi: in thee, Lord, have I hoped.' And, with my human resources, I threw my prayer and my cross into the balance. And my hope was not vain, nor ever will be: 'Non confundar in aeternum! I shall never be disappointed!'
· Total Consecration Day 16
We all recall when, in 2015, David Daleiden released videos showing
Planned Parenthood officials discussing fees for human fetal tissue and organs. These videos dealt a severe blow to Planned Parenthood, and went a long way in turning our country away from a culture of death to a culture of life. I consider David a great hero in our times, and I have likened his battle against Planned Parenthood as that of David and Goliath.
As I stated earlier, in these last nine days, I am asking all Special Forces Prayer Warriors to add the mighty Chaplet of St. Michael. This powerful chaplet is designed to call upon St. Michael and all nine choirs of angels to engage battle with you (You can read about it HERE). To learn how to pray the St. Michael Chaplet, go HERE.
I spoke with David Daleiden last week. David would, very much, appreciate our prayers during our last novena of our 54-Day Rosary Novena for our Nation. Here's why.
Now we are seeing laws instituted, one after another, to snuff out the life of the Goliath that is Planned Parenthood. The most recent was HHS terminating a contract with Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) for "fresh" aborted fetal organs and tissues. (See Trump administration pro-life "wins" HERE)
Add to this that polling is now showing nationwide sentiment in favor of significant abortion restrictions.
These investigative videos were so damaging to the Abortion industry that the culture of death began to throw everything in their arsenal against David Daleiden, and to do all they could to keep these videos from being seen:
Planned Parenthood and their political cronies are waging an all-out, meritless legal assault against CMP, our citizen journalists, and ultimately against the First Amendment. They have sued us for almost everything, except, conspicuously, for defamation, slander, or libel-because the video camera doesn't lie.
David Daleiden informed me that, on October 3rd, he and his legal team will face a critical court date. This court date "happens" to fall squarely in the middle of the last novena (Sept. 29 - Oct. 7) of six we have prayed in the 54 Day Rosary "Novena for Our Nation."
Add to this that it looks like the Senate vote on the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanough to the Supreme Court will also occur some time during this "last novena." Again, we all know that another constitutional judge greatly threatens the culture of death.
Warriors, now is the time for all of us to say, "I'm Going In!" We know this is a spiritual war against Satan and his army of angels. We must, first, "BELIEVE!" And, in belief, we must call upon St. Michael and his army of angels to rise and deal the last blow to Satan's culture of death.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower spoke these words in the moments before D-Day, June 6, 1944. I believe they apply to this great spiritual D-Day we are about to embark upon:
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely ...I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
To order your own St. Michael Combat Chaplet, go HERE.
As you pray this St. Michael Chaplet, during these last nine days (Sept. 29 - Oct. 7), please add these two intentions:
"Lord, through the intercession of Mary, St. Michael and his army of angels, please help Justice Kavanough to be selected as a Supreme Court Justice."
"Lord, through the intercession of Mary, St. Michael and his army of angels, please help David Daleiden to be victorious over Satan and his culture of death."
