Heaven's Army

 Want to Change History? Join Heaven's Army Every Thursday, May 13 to October 7

US GRACE FORCE // Few Americans would disagree that the country is going through a dark time. In fact, recent polling shows America is more and more convinced that things are only getting darker.

And that's just the general public. Imagine how much more concerned America's committed Christians must be as they face the hostility of powerful corporations, cultural institutions, and government officials--together with manifold threats to religious liberty, the innocence of children, and of course the lives of the unborn.

But there are those who are facing this state of affairs head-on -- taking seriously the call to fervently seek the power of the Holy Spirit to vanquish this invasion of evil. And, beginning Thursday, May 13, 2021, something historic will begin to happen, which local Christians believe is going to change the course of history.

Launched from St. Mary's of Pine Bluff, America will begin to gather together and adore Jesus Christ, inviting Him to make Himself fully present in our land, and by His Presence, to free it from the powers of darkness. And the local Christians of Wisconsin are committed: they will continue to gather for what they are calling Heal Our Land Holy Hours every Thursday from May 13 until October 7th.

The Dates of this Enterprise are No Coincidence

In Catholic tradition, May 13 is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, as well as Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. Thursday is also the day when Jesus Christ established the Eucharist -- His "New Covenant" -- on the night before His Passion. Finally, in 2021, May 13 is Ascension Thursday -- the day when the Lord ascended into Heaven 40 days after Easter Sunday. From then, the Apostles awaited the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

And so, Day 1 (May 13) comes one day before the beginning of the most ancient and most powerful of all novenas - The Pentecost Novena, a nine-day prayer for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which leads right up to the Feast of Pentecost, when God first sent His Holy Spirit to transform the face of the earth. In these historic times, when evil appears emboldened, we are asking everyone to participate in the Pentecost Novena, as we BEG God for a bountiful outpouring of the Holy Spirit to Heal Our Land!

October 7, the last day of the Thursday "Heal Our Land Holy Hours," is the traditional Feast of Our Lady of Victory (now known as Our Lady of the Rosary), and the 450th anniversary of the victory of Christian forces against invaders at the Battle of Lepanto. It's time to gather the remnant spiritual forces and join heaven's army in this epic battle!

Why? To "Heal Our Land"

"We believe we're responding to an invitation from God," said Fr. Richard Heilman, Pastor of St. Mary of Pine Bluff and the leader of this initiative, as he explains it this way:

"I am convinced that a movement of restoring Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the spiritual therapeutic for cleansing our country of demonic influence and opening the floodgates of grace that will heal our land, bringing our country back to the spiritual health of being One Nation Under God once again."

Here, Fr. Heilman was referencing a passage of Scripture which has served to inspire these Christians, and also gives the prayer mission its name - "Heal Our Land."

God promises in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Darkest Before the Dawn: How You Can Help Spread the Light

Fr. Heilman and others have been getting inklings that they were called to pursue this since last year, when a "Christmas Star" (actually a rare convergence of celestial bodies) appeared in the sky for the first time in nearly 800 years.

The last time this light appeared in the sky was in 1226, which "happened to be" the first year when the practice of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament spread from the confines of monasteries to the parishes of ordinary Christians.

Fr. Heilman said, "Sometimes God whispers, and sometimes He shouts." Here, Fr. Heilman was referencing these many signs God has given us for this call for us to throw ourselves at the feet of Jesus and seek His face as we BEG God for a bountiful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in this mission to grow a mighty movement of restoration of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

St. Alphonsus Liguori said, "Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us."

Fr. Heilman also believes the offering of the Sacrament of Confession during these "Heal Our Land Holy Hours" is every bit a part of this call to humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Here's How You Can Join

For those who are interested in organizing a Thursday "Heal our Land Holy Hour" in their own parish, Fr. Heilman recommends they develop a plan and take it to their priests for support and involvement. 
"Don't ask your priests to organize it," Fr. Heilman suggests. Instead, 
"create a plan and bring a full Heal Our Land proposal to them."

And the Wisconsin group is here to help! People who are interested in joining in can go to for the program of prayers to get them started. Whenever they're ready, other communities can join in any Thursday on or after May 13th through October 7th.

Please note that, for those who wish to "Join Heaven's Army" in these Thursday "Heal Our Land Holy Hours," and have not yet organized this in their own parish, these will be live-streamed every Thursday from St. Mary of Pine Bluff. You can find the link at

Fr. James Boric of Baltimore recently said that when Christians adore the Lord in any city, 
"the city is transformed ... when Jesus is brought into a city, things get better. Period."

Fr. Heilman agrees. When Christians adore the Eucharistic Lord in cities all throughout America, He will hear from heaven and, indeed, "heal our land."

Jesus said to his disciples: "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you" (John 15:7). Jesus, we ask for an abundant outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

  Auxilium Christianorum - Praying for Persecuted Priests Monday, May 24 is the Feast of Mary Mother of the Church. It is also the Feast of  Mary Help of Christians  (Auxilium Christianorum). Please consider joining this Auxilium Christianorum family to pray daily for our holy and courageous persecuted priests. The Church teaches us that it is divided into the  Church Triumphant  (which includes the members of the Church in heaven), the  Church Suffering  (this includes the members of the Church in purgatory), and the  Church Militant  (this refers to those members of the Church who are alive in this world). Because we are part of the Church Militant, we are in a spiritual warfare and this spiritual warfare requires that we recognize, as Saint Paul teaches us "For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." ( Ephesians 6:12 ) The me

Judith, Chapter 10, Verse 16 When you stand before him, have no fear in your heart; give him the report you have given us, and he will treat you well.” Judith prepares for war with prayer and by the enhancement of her beauty. She is so strikingly beautiful that in this verse one of the guards of the Assyrian camp advises her to be confident in the presence of Holofernes. Beauty and the Beast [1] After bathing (during a drought) she uses all the human arts available to her to make herself beautiful and captivating: perfumed ointment, hair, clothing and jewelry. She understands the goodness of her body. She knows physical beauty is good and comes from God. She also knows that the power of her beauty comes from within her, from her holiness, from her faithfulness to God. Since both her exterior and interior beauty come from God, her beauty must be devoted to the service of God. God intends to use her beauty as a weapon to liberate the people. She will wield the weapon t

 Switch of Manliness Legacy OUR LADY OF CZESTOCHOWA   Acts, Chapter 10, verse 1-4 1 Now in Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Cohort called the Italica, 2 devout and God-fearing along with his whole household, who used to give alms generously to the Jewish people and pray to God constantly. 3 One afternoon about three o’clock, he saw plainly in a vision an angel of God come into him and say to him, “Cornelius.” 4 He looked intently at him and seized with FEAR , said, “What is it, sir?” He said to him, “Your prayers and almsgiving have ascended as a memorial offering before God.   Cornelius’ Cohort was an auxiliary unit of archers, men who are expert at hitting a mark or target.   Sin is the act of violating God's will. Sin can also be viewed as anything that violates the ideal relationship between an individual and God, or as any diversion from the ideal order for human living. To sin has been defined as "to miss the mark" to have a harden

  Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Easter PINOT GRIGIO DAY John, Chapter 14, verse 27 Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or AFRAID .   Shalom, which means peace, is a Hebrew salutation. Yet Christ tells us that HIS shalom is different. It is a gift of salvation a messianic blessing. Through the spirit we are born again, sons and daughters of the eternal. The world and its attractions to sin lose its sparkle to us. Yes, we may fall from time to time, but the spirit and peace of Christ is always with us, and we rise up again. 10 things happy professionals do before 10 a.m. [1]   Success often seems like a visionary goal — a feat in life that’s attempted only after many strides, plenty of pitfalls and a healthy serving of endurance.

Dear U.S. Grace Force, I believe we are facing a watershed moment. I am feeling we need to be in intense prayer right now. Today, I received on strong calling that we should do a 54 Day Novena of intense mortification and prayer from All Saints (November 1) to Christmas (December 24).  I don't know where folks are at. For some, this may be overkill since we just finished a 54 Day Novena. For others, they may be sensing what I am sensing, and want to go all in.  Then, after receiving this calling, I was made aware of what of these two blood brothers, Fr. James Blount and Fr. Tony Blount, have already prepared. The Blount Fathers are in exact sync with all of us. LET'S JOIN THEM!! All of the information is here:  https:// Here is a short video in which the Blount Fathers (brothers) explain this prayer campaign:

  Holy Thursday   Jeremiah, Chapter 30, verse 10-11 10 But you, my servant Jacob, do not FEAR ! —oracle of the LORD—do not be dismayed, Israel! For I will soon deliver you from places far away, your offspring from the land of their exile; Jacob shall again find rest, secure, with none to frighten him, 11 for I am with you—oracle of the LORD—to save you. I will bring to an end all the nations among whom I have scattered you; but you I will not bring to an end. I will chastise you as you deserve, I will not let you go unpunished.   Secularist and pagans still tremble with fear because of God. Why? People fear what they do not understand or have to compete with. Every person is born with the spirit of God within them; it is the spirit of truth which they have lost or suppressed.   Christ referred to this when he told the parable of the sower. The seed is the spirit of truth (spirit of God) that the sower sows. Christ tells us, “A sower went out to sow. and as he sowed, s

  Fifth Week of Lent Friday of Sorrows HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY   Jeremiah, Chapter 23, Verse 4 I will raise up shepherds for them who will shepherd them so that they need no longer FEAR or be terrified; none shall be missing—oracle of the LORD.   During the season of Lent, we offer our suffering up to Christ to unite with His suffering and as our shepherd, He guides us through this time to bring us into his glory.   The Presence of God [1]   For Jews, there was only one Temple. It was the one place on earth that could truly be called holy. It was the place where God’s Spirit dwelt. The Temple was a place where they could withdraw from the pollutions of the world and know God’s presence in purity. As Christians by the action of Christ we, our bodies, are the temple of God, and He is always with us. No longer was God’s presence and his purifying ritual confined to a single geographic location. No longer were they the exclusive privilege of a single ethnic group. Now the

   Saturday of the Fifth Week of Lent   Jeremiah, Chapter 26, verse 19 Did Hezekiah, king of Judah, and all Judah condemn him to death? Did he not FEAR the Lord and entreat the favor of the Lord, so that the Lord had a change of heart regarding the evil he had spoken against them? We, however, are about to do great evil against ourselves.”   Have you ever been around people who cannot handle the truth! Speaking the truth got Jeremiah in dire straits. Unmoving, the temple officials and elders trashed Jeremiah nonetheless they were too afraid to kill him.   Dire Straits [1]   At the beginning of Jehoiakim's reign, God tells Jeremiah to stand in the court of the temple and speak to all the people and cities of Judah. They're getting another chance to repent. Maybe they'll actually listen this time. If the people don't finally come to their senses, God's going to do the same thing to Jerusalem that he did to Shiloh up north: it'll be devastated, but the
