Spiritual 911

The following is a neat little teachings from Father Corapi. I like it and wanted to share it. Pray it and enjoy it.

All of us have had times and experiences when we’ve needed help. Spiritual help, right now!

In the United States and Canada, the telephone number used to call for
police, fire, or ambulance emergency services is “911.” When we call “911
we need help immediately.

Well, it often happens that people, suffering many and various things, need
help from God right now. I have a “Spiritual 911” for you if that’s the case.
I received most of the inspiration for this from Mother Teresa of Calcutta, although she didn’t relate any of it to the term “911.”

If you find yourself in dire need of help from God pray the following prayers
with as much trust as you can muster. This trust, or childlike confidence, is of extreme importance. In a sense the more you trust God, the more you permit Him to help you.

NOTE: All prayer is centered on Jesus Christ. Know with absolute certainty that all that we give to Mary, she takes to Jesus.

With great trust pray:

9 Memoraries. “Remember, o most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or
sought Thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I
fly unto thee, o Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To Thee do I come. Before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.”

1 Rosary. Pray 5 decades of the Rosary (Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, or
Luminous Mysteries. The choice is yours). Try to meditate well on the Mysteries, bringing them into your own life. Pray the prayers of the Our Father and Hail Mary with great love and trust. The prayer of the Rosary is the prayer of the Gospel. That is why it is so powerful. When we pray the Rosary, we are praying the Gospel. The Gospel or “Good News” is Jesus Christ: Infinite Power!

1 Chaplet of Divine Mercy
. This is an age especially in need of God’s
mercy. Jesus gave this prayerful devotion, dedicated to His Infinite mercy,
to Saint Faustina. Once again, pray with trust, even if it hurts. Just do it! It
is not a feeling. It is a decision. An act of the will. The prayers “Eternal Father, I offer you the body and blood, soul and divinity, of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world;” and “For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us, and on the whole world,” are filled with power. The ending prayer “Holy God, holy mighty One, holy immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world” call down Gods grace and mercy on us and all of our brothers and sisters.

So, you have a direct line to God. Call to heaven with the Spiritual “911” when you need to send a distress call for heavenly help.
It will take less than an hour in most cases. If you don’t have that much time, make the solemn intention to do it as soon as possible. God loves you and will help you. He may not remove the problem, but he’ll always give you the strength and means to triumph over it.
9 Memoraries
1 Rosary
1 Chaplet of Divine Mercy

May God bless you and keep you safe in his merciful love!

Just say NO to the government

Two of my favorite talk show hosts are Mark Levin and Mike Church. Listening to them the last couple of days, along with reading the headlines on the Drudgereport and Fox News has brought about a painful realization. The people in Washington DC, (BHO and Congress) don't care what you or I think or say.

At least not as long as it does not threaten their power or their plans to enslave us. Make no mistake about it. There is a deliberate plan to reduce the American people to the socialist slave status that is inflicted on most of the rest of the world.

This plan is a conspiracy conducted at a much higher level than the Office of the President of the United States. It is being orchestrated from a higher level than the United Nations. These are but tools in the hands of the enemy.

The enemy of is Satan, i.e. Lucifer, the Devil, the Adversary. I reference Ephesians 6:12

"For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." NRSV-CE

Our leaders in Congress and the President are going to continue to march us down the path of godless socialism whether we want to go that way or not. Every time we resist their agenda, i.e. the overwhelming “no” to amnesty for illegal immigrants, they just put it on the back burner and look for ways to do an end run around the Constitution and the people.

Unfortunately at this point, I do not believe this can be fixed through the ballot box. There is too much division among the people. To many Americans are able to vote themselves money and benefits from the neighbors' pocket.

Just look at the Cap and Trade legislation. This is one of the worse pieces of legislation ever written by any government. It is based on bad science, bad economics and bad faith. The majority of Americans would never vote for such a pile of lies. Yet the Democrats in the House of Representatives bribed and bought their fellow legislators to strong arm passage of this America killing bill.

Here are two examples. Rep. Buchanan (Rep.) from Fl. voted for the bill after securing from Rep. Waxman millions of dollars of taxpayer money for a hurricane study center in his district. Rep. Marcy Kaptur secured an amendment that provides as much as 3.26 billion in taxpayer financed loans for her district. These are just examples of the many “deals” that take place everyday in Congress. This is nothing more than influence peddling, blackmail and bribery.

There is just too much money and power in Washington, DC. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

So, what do we do about it? That is the question I am most often asked. Here is the best answer I have.

We must first realize that they (the corrupt leaders in DC) are only able to do this because we let them. We need to realize that we the people have the real power in this country. Let them pass their laws. Let the Supreme Court make their rulings. Then let them try to enforce them.

I am talking about peaceful civil disobedience. To quote Nancy Reagan, “Just say no.” You are under no obligation to obey an illegal or immoral law. In fact you have a moral obligation to disobey such a law.

Let me give an example of what I am talking about. The Supreme Court says no prayer in schools, no prayer before high school sporting events, or at commencement ceremonies. I say to the Supreme Court, I don't care what you say. You have no jurisdiction in the matter. If the majority of the people in my community which to pray at school events then we will pray. If you don't like it, you are free to move to another location.

The point is this: America does not want a law demanding that people pray at school events, nor should she tolerate one prohibiting such prayer.

The first amendment states that Congress shall not establish a religion nor prohibit the free exercise thereof. In other words, the government does not have a say in whether or not we pray in our schools. It is only because we let them that they have inserted themselves where they don't belong.

They do this because in the public schools they control the money. These state (government) run schools and the unions that support them are going to continue to support those that feed them and give them the money. To end this tyranny we must cut off the money.

Now is the time for us to join together and just say no to the tyranny. The smart people need to figure out how to organize the 10's of millions that are ready to move in acts of civil disobedience to expose the absolute tyranny of those who wish to destroy our country.

Tea parties are nice and represent a great starting place. But they do not go far enough. As long as the people continue to pay their income and withholding taxes and continue to support this corrupted government, those in power are more than content to allow “tea parties.”

This is a call to return to the limited self-government of our Founding Fathers. This can only be accomplished by a return of State Sovereignty. The President is often referred to as the most powerful man in the world. That is certainly true in many ways. But he is not a dictator nor should he be perceived as such. Externally, to the world, he is powerful because he is in charge of the most powerful nation of the world. Internally however, he should only be a normal citizen elected to represent, to the world, the collective voice of the 50 sovereign United States of America.

I could go on in this rant. I will however, pause here and wait for some feed back. I hope to hear from my fellow patriotic Americans soon.

God bless you and thanks for taking the time to read this blog.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pray For Us

The following is from a prayer card I carry over the visor in my truck. I pull it out and pray it as I travel across America. Please join me and share it with others. Our Mother loves us and will certainly come to our aid. Let us pray to save our country and our fellow citizens from the grasp of the evil one.

O Holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God
, who as Our Lady of Guadalupe didst aid in the conversion of Mexico from paganism in a most miraculous way, we now beseech thee to bring about in our times the early conversion of our modern world from its present neo-paganism to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of thy divine Son, Jesus Christ, starting in the Americas and extending throughout the entire world, so that soon there may be truly “one fold and one shepherd,” with all governments recognizing the reign of thy Son, Jesus Christ, the King.

This we ask of the Eternal Father, through Jesus Christ His Son Our LORD and by thy powerful intercession – all for the salvation of souls, the triumph of the Church and the peace in the world.


This prayer card does have ecclesiastical approval.

Thank you and God bless.

87 year old father-in-law's letter to the editor

This is a letter that my father-in-law recently wrote to the editor of the Fort Worth Star-telegram. I want to share it with everybody for several reasons.

First, I want to share it to honor him and his service to our country. He flew bombers in WWII and is a bonafide, decorated hero. He has earned the right to have his voice heard.

Second, he is 87 years old and still fighting the enemies of his country. This is a great lesson to all of us. The battle never ends and neither does our call to serve. He is a great example to his children, his grandchildren, and future generations to come.

The third reason is he has lived through several different phases of American history. He has seen many Presidents and administrations come and go. He has a valuable perspective on the current situation in America. It would do us all well and good to listen to the voices of those who have the experience and wisdom that come only with age.

Letter to the editor

Outrageous Disrespect

Having fought in three wars for the United States of America, beginning with World War II, I never thought I would ever hear a U.S. President disgrace my country the way Obama did on his recent trip to Europe.

The asinine statement he made in France claiming Americans are arrogant (notice: not “we Americans”), not only desecrated the honor and memory of Americans buried in Flanders Field in France, but it embarrassed the French people. They are well aware that Americans saved their country twice in the twentieth century.

My aircrew was sent to Europe during the Berlin Air Lift in 1948 and every time we were In France the French people were very grateful to Americans for saving them.

If there are any French people now that think Americans are arrogant it would have to be younger people about Obama's age that are as ignorant of French and American history as Obama.

It is the duty of the few of us veterans still living to speak for the Americans who sacrificed their lives in World War I and World War II because the American news media and the current government in Washington, D.C. Will never do so!
