St. Joseph Terror of Demons from St. Joseph Oratory in Montreal Canada

St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, pave the way for Mary and she paves the way for her son, Jesus Christ into the world, our families and our hearts. Help protect us from the Jezebel spirit and all demons operating in the feministic world that emasculate men.

Intercede on our behalf. You protected Mary, your most chaste spouse and in doing so, did what Adam did not do in the garden, you protected.

Therefore, St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, conquerer of this failure of Adam, bestow upon all fathers the grace of authentic masculinity and purity of heart so that they too can defend and protect the family.

Prepare the way for Mary in our homes as terror of demons, cause them to flee from us. St Joseph, help cast out all demons that are preventing our hearts from being receptive so that she, who IS receptivity, may pour out her graces into our hearts and thus enable us to more perfectly receive, retain and share the merciful love of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, Pray For and Intercede For Us. Amen

Treasure In Earthen Vessels; God Works Through Cracked Pots (UPDATED 10-28-2012)

SCROLL TO BOTTOM TO HEAR THE TALK I GAVE AND SEE THE PREZI/PRESENTATION I GAVE TO 1,000 WOMEN)

The story of the woman at the well is a marriage proposal and is a great place to begin in sharing how we are treasures in earthen vessels. It is strangely reminiscent of the song we sang as children “first comes love then comes marriage then comes the baby in the baby carriage”. First there was God who is love. Then the word was made flesh. Jesus is the Bridegroom.

That childhood song was a song about the holy Trinity and the call of our God into the marriage relationship of the bride and bridegroom and how we will be transformed into new creations. Theology of the Body gives us a beautiful lens from which to fully understand what the old Baltimore catechism said when it said we were created to know love and serve God to give you him forever in heaven.

The woman at the well is symbolic of all of our brokenness because of the sin in our lives, all of the inadequacies and all of the ways in which we fall short and yet God comes to us and seeks us out.

This is the marriage proposal. We are made for connection we are made for relationship.

Where we struggle in this is when SHAME gets in the way of allowing others to truly see who we are or to allow others to truly see us.

That’s where vulnerability comes in.

VULNERABILITY IS NOT WEAKNESS. How many think it takes vulnerability to speak in front of an audience of 800 people? It is true that vulnerability involves emotional risk and uncertainty but what vulnerability really means is to have courage.

Vulnerability is birthplace of creation and transformation. To create is to make something that never existed before like the unique and unrepeatable person. When we have the courage to really open ourselves to look into our hearts and even more importantly let others really and truly “see” us, we become transformed. “ Grace perfects our nature”.

In the garden, we were naked without shame.

“Naked without shame” is about knowing who we were as persons made in Gods image and likeness and our nature was perfect. When we fell from Grace due to original sin shame entered into the world.

Shame is the devil’s proposal about who God is and who we are.

Shame says one of two things; “you will never be good enough” or “who do you think you are”.

Adam and Eve covered themselves because they said yes to the devil’s proposal. Because they were unwilling to be vulnerable enough to go to God and trust in who He said we are, they fell and the consequence was sin.

A very basic understanding of sin is separation from God. In the Old Testament sin is described as a transgression. It is not just a violation of the law, but because the law was meant to protect as persons and to protect our world and our environment and God’s creation it is also a violation of God and violation of us so every time we separate from God and transgress upon his will we transgress upon ourselves and of all of creation. Sin, missing the mark and falling short of the glory of God. So with three

Sin has its effects always in wounding. Sin always wounds. There is no sin that doesn’t wound. It wounds us and it wounds others around us. We have no possibility of living in this world without being wounded.

What SHAME does is it takes the guilt we feel and turns the belief of “What I did was bad” into the belief that “I am bad”.

SHAME then makes us feel that we are unworthy of connection. It is in believing we are not thin enough, beautiful enough, successful enough or smart enough that SHAME turns our focus from who we are as unique and unrepeatable persons into who we think we “should be” or “should be doing”.

Shame makes us feel we are not good enough and that we will never be good enough.

The story of the woman at the well reminds us of whom we truly are which is the beloved of the Bridegroom and that God desires to marry us.

God knows all the places we have failed him and will fail him and yet he created us anyways. Out of all of the potential people God could’ve created we were chosen to be created and to come into the world to exist in fact of this very particular time in history.

But it gets better than this! God is calling all of us to enter into the redemption of the world! God could have chose to redeem the world anyway he liked. What he decided was that he wanted all of us to enter into this great work with him.

He does this by transforming our wounds much like his own were from the power of the cross. His “cracks” were in fact the greatest gift given to the entire world. Our wounds, our cracks, our inadequacies become the very place, once transformed like a firing kiln to a clay pot, becomes the very form from which God can best shine through, pour out of and be given to others. He is magnified by our smallness and our weakness.

God is calling you and is issuing a marriage proposal in which He desires to transform you and touch the lives of those around you through your fiat.

A treasure in earthen vessels is about our unique and unrepeatable personhood, it is about our immortal soul chosen by God to be called into existence. The earthen vessel reveals that the person we are is feminine or masculine and also is a sign that we are called to love like the trinity. But the earthen vessel also speaks to us about form.

Form, and the material from which it is made reveal its purpose. If I held up a cup and asked, “What is it?” unless we were from another world where they do not use cups, we would know it is a cup and that it holds liquid. We know understand what it is because of its form

Our form is meant to be a visible sign of Christ to the world. It is not just our masculine or feminine person that our form reveals but it tells a story of the Bride and the Bridegroom.

In Caryll Houselander’s book “The Reed of God” she uses three forms to reveal how Christ “shines” through our cracks”, The reed, the chalice, and the birds nest.

The Reed grows on the riverbanks and must be cut with a knife and then hallowed out with notches cut into it to create its form. Some of our stories include this kind of shaping. We are cut and hallowed out. We may think that we have nothing to give, our brokenness, or even our sinfulness might make us believe that God could never possibly choose us. The woman at the well is a reminder that God does chose us and when we allow him to redeem us, it is as if we are pressed to the lips of the master and when His Spirit blows through the reed, lyrical music is created because of the hallowing out and the notches that had been cut.

Some of our stories are like a chalice. A chalice is made from gold that has to be first hewn from the mud, then forged in fire before it can be poured into it’s mold. It then has to be pounded by a mallet to create its form. For those whose forming came from the succession of blows or from the purification of fire, they may understand that they are like Gold, that they are good, but they may not believe themselves worthy of greatness. It is the age-old question “Who do you think you are? If we remember that we are the beloveds of Christ, that He called us into being that we are His, then we remember who we are. A chalice is used to offer the great sacrifice of the mass. For those whose form is like the chalice, God desires to fill you with the water and blood that gushed from His sacred heart so that through your form you can pour Him out to a thirsting world.

Finally, for those who are shaped like the nest of a bird, the soft downy feathers of a tender mother bird’s breast create the form. For those who may have been formed by loving parents, in a prayerful home and have no painful formation as part of their story the temptation could be to say that they do not have a unique or inspiring story. Those whose story includes love, fidelity and affirmation are not only hope and inspiration for the world but it also creates a person more fully capable of revealing Christ. This story is an example of how each of us is called to become tabernacles.

We are to bring Christ to the world with our own hands and feet, with our own stories.

Each of our stories is as unique as our fingertips, as unique as our personhood.

We are the vessel and form helps us to tell the story of who Christ is and who we are in Christ. We should never underestimate the power of conversion to work through even the most broken of vessels.

Lazarus is an example of just such a vessel. He was dead. A rotting corpse and according to chief mourners “stinking” and yet when Christ shone through Lazarus, an entire city and now every generation to come, was converted through his story and through his form.

For me, my form is the reed. I have been hallowed out, whittled and cut into. The story I have to tell is of being transformed through my children and my husband.

I’ve been able to identify specific attributes or virtues that God has helped to develop in me for each one of my children.

For Maegan it was vulnerability, for Sara it was selfless love, for Elisha it was the need of affirmation, for Gabriel it was submission, for Annamarie it was long-suffering, for Mercedes it was Mercy, for Christopher it was joy, for Jonah it was perseverance.

For each child I have received a healing of a major wound, crack, or notch cut into me. God transformed it and the grace He has given to me in each of these areas have brought me freedom to love more rightly

Each time I was cracked, wounded or cut into because of my sin or the sin of others, the enemy proposed a lie so to enter into my heart and bring me to a place of shame.

Christ helps to expose the lies and bring healing to our wounded hearts and when we become vulnerable and allow Him in to truly see us, Christ transforms our wounds and they become like stained glass windows illuminating and radiating God’s beauty, God’s light, God’s truth to the world.

They will know us by our joy they will know us by our love. In this year of faith we are called to transformation. The new evangelization is about allowing Christ to permeate us. We embrace our greatness when we dare to take what we know in our heads and connect it to our hearts. When we move from knowing God, to being in an intimate relationship with Him.

When we allow ourselves to truly be seen and to really see the person God puts in front of us everyday is when we enter into one another’s story of redemption. God works through cracked pots, because His greatness is magnified in our weakness. The truth is that the enemy puts salt in our wounds because he is terrified that if we actually go into the wounds and bring Christ there with us, we would discover that when Christ redeems them, they become like jewels in the Crown of the creator.

You are a treasure in an earthly vessel and your form reveals a call to love and to be loved from the bridegroom to His bride. All it takes is your “fiat” which is the greatest “I DO” you can ever utter.

Divine Providence or Coincidence? (Repost)

When I woke up today, I did not know I was going to hold a dying womans body in my arms. I did not know I would have to push through skin, muscle and fat tissue to tie a turnacut around her leg which was nearly severed from her body.

As usual, I had my day’s wrong in my mind and thought I was heading to our parish picnic where I had signed up myself and two of my teen age daugthers for face painting. As I turned down Northland Avenue, an ambulance pulled into the intersection so I turned the radio off and my daughters and I prayed a Hail Mary for the person who was in need and that the driver would get there safe and soon, Amen. Little did I know that I would soon see another ambulance, this time to the scene of an accident I would be at.

As I drove, I continued to think and pray about who was in need and I contemplated upon the severity of the accident. When I turned down the street to my church, I noticed how sparce the cars were and decided to drive towards the back of the church, thinking it would make getting to the place we would be set up easier. As I passed the first driveway, my daugther, who was sitting in the back said;

“Go back mom, there is a woman who was hit by a car, she is pinned by a pole!”

My other daughter scoffed at her sibling saying;

“I don’t think so, I am sure that is not what you saw”.

Wondering what it was that she did see, I turned the car around and pulled into the main driveway. Sure enough, there was a woman under a car near a light pole and several people were standing around her. All of them seemed to be in a daze.

At first I thought, I don’t want to be in the way, maybe I should not go over. But then I saw that other than a woman holding the victims hand and another holding her head, it did not appear anyone knew what to do.

My mothering and bossy nature came to the forefront and I immediately yelled out;

“Is there anyone here that has more training than me? I know CPR, I have had some first aid training?”  As I looked around they all shook their heads and stared blankly, just as scared as I was we all could see the the blood forming a large pool around her. As it poured out of this little woman the pool began to grow larger and so I knew I had to do something and I had to do it fast.

I yelled for someone to call an ambulance and then I yelled for them to get Fr. Tom outside NOW! I kneeled down next to her and she was praying the Hail Mary, over and over in a whisper.  A friend of hers, Toni, was there praying a rosary out loud and I could hear the woman praying softly with her.  I too began to pray.

I now looked more closely at her injuries and saw that the bone had not only been broken and twisted completely around, but it had been pulled through the body and her entire upper thigh was ripped open.  The tissues and bone were all exposed and the blood was spurting out all over. Out of no where, an image that I remembered from college popped into my mind. It was a black and white photo from a first-aid manual of a turnacut. I realized she needed a turnacut but was not sure how I would get it around this mutilated leg or even where I would get something to tie around her. I yelled for someone to get me material or a belt, I needed a turnacut.

Three people ripped off their belts and thrust them at me, I have never been so grateful to have someone hand me a belt in all of my life. I then realized I was going to have to pull through the muscle and fat tissues and lift them out of the way to find my way around the leg. After several failed attempts, I realized if I did not do this, she would bleed to death if she was not already at the verge of being left with little to no blood. I yelled for someone to go and get Father Tom.

“She needs a priest! Someone get Father!” I yelled out.  I saw him emerge from the church doors looking confused and then in horror and shock at what he was trying to understand what he was looking at. One of his parishioners, a woman who sought him out after every mass to kiss his hands and thank him for bringing her Jesus, was lying under a car, in a pool of blood. Not more than 5 minutes earlier, she had been smiling up at him.

“There’s no time Father! She needs an anointing (I did not want to scare her or any family present by saying last rites, although I clearly felt she was going to die before the ambulance even arrived)you have to give her an anointing now!”

It was as if he immediately understood without me having to explain.  I saw on his face that he understood the gravity of the situation.  I knew in that moment, the most important thing I could do for her that day would be to bring a priest to her side and give her last rites so as to make her ready to meet Jesus.  His face turned white as a sheet and then, as if he was given an instruction internally, he turned on his heel and went back into the church. Oh no, I thought, he isn’t coming.

“Where is he going?” I said outloud.

Someone I am not sure, perhaps Toni, who remained at Paz’s side the entire time, said to me “He is going to get the Holy Oil”. I must have been in shock, because I did not even think of that, even though that is why I called for him.

The next thing I know he was back with the holy oil and was praying over her and giving her the blessing of the church and absolving her of her sins. He must have ran the whole way because he was by my side faster than I had ever in my life seen someone move.

At this time, Paz had stopped praying and looked so very afraid. Her eyes where very wide and her mouth was open as she looked into my eyes. I quickly prayed for the strength to do what needed to be done and I felt an interior voice say…just focus on her. I lifted up the flesh and put my hands into her body and felt around to the other side and then quickly slid the belt along the route I had just determined I could get to as my fingers kept the skin back to give the belt passage. I secured it and then pulled with all of my might, knowing it would need to be tight, but so very afraid I would hurt her. I watched her face as I did this to see if there was any reaction of pain, but there was none, only confusion and fear. That is when I knew that the words I would speak to her would perhaps be the last she would hear on this earth. What would they be?

I leaned over to the woman and told her not to be afraid. I reminded her she just received the blessed sacrament. I told her she had been given last rites and that we were praying the Rosary with her. I saw her look at me and I told her that Mary will hold her in her arms and Jesus was with her. I told her she was in a state of grace, she was wearing her scapular and she was ready. I told her to trust in Jesus, to place herself in Marys arms over and over. I desired to give her peace and to take away any and all fear, but let her know to trust in God, trust in Him. Her eyes softened and it was as if all the fear and confusion melted away.

As soon as I said this, her breathing changed, first she stopped breathing, then she began to gasp and gulp. The paramedics arrived. I yelled to them and to the woman who was helping me telling them she stopped breathing. The woman helping me confirmed indeed, she was dying.

I saw the blood flow slow down, but I saw the spurts continue with a pulsing rhythm. A woman, an anesthesiologist was helping. She told me I had to apply pressure at the groin. The turnacut was not enough so I had to use my hands to grip her flesh directly to try and stop the bleeding. I reached in and held the skin and tissues with my hands as tight as I could. The spurts stopped.

When I realized all I could do was done and a paramedic stepped in and was working on her breathing, I let go of her leg and stepped back. Her blood covering my hands and arms, pooled in my shoe and on my knees from where I had been kneeling before her.

I slowly stepped away from her. It was hard, because I saw her go from praying and looking at me, to dying in front of me.

As I went into the parish bathroom and washed the blood off of my hands, I saw bits and pieces of her on me, I realized that I had the blood of a possible saint on me. She had come from Mass, she was a regular attendee and Eucharist Adoration visitor, she was wearing a scapular, had gone to confession (I found out later she attended Divine Mercy Sunday services and this is the remittance of all temporal consequence for sin) and she had been given last rites and anointing and so I may assume based on her faith and love of God, that she was with Jesus in Heaven as I washed her body from my hands. I prayed for her and thought, was this a loving mercy from God?

I have always prayed that when I die, I would be in a state of grace, I would have been to confession, would have just received communion, would have a priest there to give me last rites, that those around me would be praying a rosary or speaking to me about trust in God and to not be afraid and here she was given all of these things.

At 95 years of age, she lived a beautiful long life. I found out she also had all her faculties and was considered by many woman a beautiful and holy soul that inspired them to live their own faith. She had a special devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and shared this prayer with others. She had been an OB/GYN had a love for the unborn and here she laid, not more than 3 or 4 feet from the memmorial to the unborn. She was surrounded by flowers and people praying the rosary for her and with her.

I met a woman named Tony who told me these things and also how much she prayed and offered up suffering for her own son to come back to the sacraments. I offered my next mass for this and later, offered my communion at her funeral mass for him to be reunited to the church and the sacraments. I ended up singing the Ave Maria at her funeral. How fitting since it was the prayer we had said together as she approached the throne of God.

Was this all just a coincidence? Was it a coincidence that I got the day wrong and drove by just at the time this happened? Was it a coincidence my daughter saw it as I was about to just drive by?

Was it a coincidence that I heard her praying and yelled for the group to pray with her? Was it a coincidence that I had an image of a priest giving last rites flash into my mind so that I would have the presence of mind to think to call for a priest? Was it a coincidence that when he came out and heard me, he was able to subvert his natural inclination to run to the aid of an injured woman and instead of acting on it he ran into the church to obtain the holy oil in which to give her Extreme Unction? Was is a coincidence that her death occurred within minutes of the accident, minimizing suffering, but enough time to allow for a priest to come and for the sacrament to be given while she was still alive?

I think not. I think it was a gift. I think it was divine providence. How can a tragedy be a gift? Because her death, although it still haunts me, was the way I would want to die. For those of you who believe in heaven, then you realize what an amazing blessing it was that the hour of her death was 15 minutes of union with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, followed by 15 minutes of suffering, surrounded by people in prayer and a priest anointing her and comforting her. The prior 30 minutes was the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. For me, that would be a blessing. I pray her family sees it that way.

Eternal Rest Grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her and may she rest in peace, most sacred heart of Jesus, Have Mercy On Us.

Paz Guidote, 95, a native of the Philippines, came to the United States in 1964 where she built a career as an obstetrics and gynecology physician. She retired from her job in St. Paul, Minn., at age 78.

While she was in her 20s, Guidote served as a first lieutenant in the Philippine Army, as part of the Philippine resistance to the Japanese.

Paz Guidote in 2009 told The Post-Crescent she treated several American soldiers who escaped from the infamous Bataan Death March, which was the forcible transfer of 75,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war from the Bataan peninsula prison camps. In 2009, Paz Guidote talked of her family’s role in the war. Family members used a transmitter to send messages reporting Japanese army, navy and air force strength and troop movements to U.S. military bases in the Pacific Theater of Operations. A Japanese soldier came to their home and it provided a close call. Her sister, though, stepped to the piano and provided significant enough distraction to keep him from the bedroom the transmitter was located.

She, too, made note of her love of country.

“I’m proud that we survived and helped the Americans,” she said.

“People along the route would grab American prisoners and help them escape,” she said. “That was the first time I saw malaria.”

Friend Judy Gruber said Guidote had a zest for life that never diminished with age. Gruber took her to Mass five or six times a week. Sometimes Gruber would receive thanks for bringing her, but “it wasn’t thank you to me. I felt blessed to be in her life.”

Good Vibrations

Studies have suggested, after scientists studied a group of Monks that practiced Gregorian Chant, that it’s use can and does alleviate fatigue, depression and illness because of the herz ranges (around 8000) and vibration patterns of the sounds.

BRAIN NEURONS WITHOUT STIMULATION

 

BRAIN NEURONS WITH STIMULATION

 

What would you think if I told you that Gregorian chants creates a harmonic vibration that has been proven in studies to eliminate fatigue, heal and cure disease and illness, extinguish depression and enable the person who sings Gregorian chant, to subsist on as little as 2 hours of sleep a day because it stimulates the part of the cerebral cortex through creating a separate vibration with our bones at a completely different vibration and hertz level that, when the cranium and skull vibrate at this frequency, acts like a magnifier as the bones of the head amplify the vibration affecting the brain at an even more magnified capacity.

 

I wonder if that is why we put bones of the martyrs under our churches or keep the bone fragments as relics, because when their bones are present before us and with us, and as we as a mystical body of Christ “sing” or chant this holy music that even at a scientific decibel level brings grace (this is the foundation of TOB) that their bones “sing” with us and the song vibrations that hum with us, could it be because God is free from space and time, is somehow allowing a supernatural grace to flow from their glorified bodies (if God is free from time and space to take the merits of the cross and apply it to create Mary Immaculate, then why could he not allow the bones in our presence of the Saints to emanate with a glorified song that we could mysteriously receive our own healing from as the vibrations frequency, creates it’s song in our own bones?

 

It would make sense as to why we have so many people on anti=depressants and other medications, which I think is a tool of the enemy to numb us to the inspirations and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Perhaps God desires to “amplify” the healing power of the Eucharist but allowing music to be a conduit of healing grace that we receive bodily, in the form of the songs very essence which is not from the voice but the unique vibrations of Gregorian Chant, it is found in Handel’s Messiah, the Ave Maria…. perhaps these unique vibrations are a gift for the soul that we receive somatically because of the sacramentality of the Body.

Can you tell the difference?? from Corpus Christi Watershed on Vimeo.

 

Then it would make sense why the enemy has had this all but removed and why we as a society are dying, diseased, depressed and fatigued. I would even go so far as to speculate that a deliberate infiltration of liturgical music has occurred in which the songs vibration patterns, frequency and harmonic structure is not only opposite of Gregorian Chant and Handel’s Messiah and the Ave Maria, but it is more closely resembles that of noise when tested by computers. “Here I am Lord” composed by Dan Schutte, an ex-Jesuit Priest ordained and has left the priesthood and living in San Francisco.

 

Dan Schutte’s song, His song, “Here I am Lord” vibrates on a harmonic or wave length levels almost identical to noise.

 

When sang, the vibrations of the chant, create a separate vibration at it’s own herz level (around 2000) that emanate from the bones. It is as if the bones “sing” say the scientists and this “song” is measurable.  More specifically the cranium, or skull and jaw bone, resonate at this herz level. The eardrum and stapes vibrate from this unique vibration and stimulate a very precise center of the cerebral cortex of the brain. The monks that were studied were able to subsist on less than 4 hours of sleep, some less than 2 hours of sleep a day, were healed of illness and experienced an overall sense of well being. When scientist studied these same monks who, due to an edict halting the practice of Gregorian Chant, were studied after they discontinued the singing of Gregorian chant, they became ill, depressed and fatigued to the point that many were unable to function or complete their duties or rigorous schedules. Once this was made known, they were given permission to once again sing Gregorian Chant and the monks suffering from illness and depression were healed. Here is more on this amazing discovery.

 

Alfred Tomatis is a French physician and specialist in otolaryngology, who has been working with understanding the function of the human ear and the importance of listening for forty-five years. In this connection we will look at his discoveries of sound, which ”charge” the listener. Tomatis found that sounds that contain high frequency harmonics, such as those found in Gregorian chants, are extremely beneficial. It is these high frequencies around 8000 Hz, which are capable of ”charging” the central nervous system and the cortex of the brain. In many of the sacred chants of the different tradition, the main out put of high frequency harmonics are dominant, which offer stimulation to the brain.

 

 

Tomatis himself discovered this when he was called to help a Benedictine monastery, where the monks were suffering of fatigued and depression. He found out, that they usually six to eight hours of chanting – due to a new decree – has been ceased, and within a short period of time the monks was unable to perform their many duties. When Tomatis re-established their daily chanting, the monks were soon able to continue their rigorous schedule of work and prayers.

Here is Theology of The Body in practice; When we listen to Gregorian Chants, our bodies experience a supernatural phenomenon that affects our well being.

 

 

For Tomatis, a major aspect of the therapeutic affects of vocal harmonics lies in the conduction of the bones, which are stimulated by resonance of around 2000 Hz. He says:

 

”The sound produced is not in the mouth, not in the body, but, in fact, in the bones. It is all the bones in the body which are singing and it is like a vibrator exciting the walls of the church, which also sing.”

 

Bone conduction’s actually amplifies the sound through resonance of the cranium and the skull. According to Tomatis, bone conduction stimulates the stapes muscle of the ear, which he believes is the key to stimulating and charging the brain. Tomatis himself manages with a small amount of sleep, less than four hours a night. He attributes this to his listening to sound, which are rich in high harmonics.

 

 

Tomatis has described a phenomenon, which has been called ”The Tomatis Effect”, that states that the voice can only create and duplicate those sounds, which the ear is able to hear. This means that until you are able to hear various overtones, you will not be able to create them in your voice.

 

Listening is undoubtedly a key, not only in obtaining the ability of creating vocal harmonies and improvement of the voice, but of understanding aspects of other levels of consciousness. In the Hindu tradition there is a great awareness of listening as a tool for enhanced consciousness. The art of listening to the outer and inner sound.

Perhaps the architecture and the acoustics of a church DO matter. Perhaps the way we sing and what we sing DOES influence how we pray, how we believe and even our health. Maybe so many people today are on medications for depression and illnesses and experience a physical and mental fatigue because the very healing gifts of the mass are being removed or altered in such a way as to prevent the body from being able to participate in the gifts God clearly desires to be experienced in and through the body. We are body and soul and God designed it this way therefor it makes sense that the designer would have a reason for giving us the senses and a reason the mass is designed to be experienced through them. So why is it we are not singing Gregorian Chants? I don’t know the answer to that, but clearly the same organization that decided to provide all of the parishes around the world with new hymnals with new music, are making millions of dollars as each Diocese keeps buying their products.

 

PLEASE READ “New Mass Same Heretical Music” to see WHY this is significant!

AVE MARIA VIBRATION AND FREQUENCY PATTERNS:

 

 

Notice how simply and beautiful the patterns are. It appears like a ladder, one in which our souls can climb to ascend to God as our souls receive the outpouring of Grace when we receive communion.

 

 

 

HANDEL’S MESSIAH VIBRATION AND FREQUENCY PATTERNS:

This one too has an equal amount of space with sound and silence that aspires us upward to the spiritual plane.

 

Then there is the new Comtemporary music that must of us all sing at mass.  Please notice how the following structure is more noise than silence.

Noise takes up all of the space with it’s darkness. Darkness is actually measured scientifically by the absence of light. I have heard Dr. Waldstein say that there is no such thing as hate, only the absence of love. So we see that the more absence of silence within a song, the more darkness that it provides. Perhaps this darkness is a blocking agent of the enemy. Theresa Tomeo has a whole book on Noise. I think that noise is an agent of the enemy and blocks us from being able to receive all God desires to give us.

Amazing Slideshow on Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Message To The Church of 21st Century!

 I do not claim to be an expert on Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I claim to be a woman with an Amazon account who has read the scholars and done research as well as sought out those considered to be experts (The writings of Mnsgr Eduardo Chavez, Fr. Mario Sanchez and original documents as well as Cardinal Burke, Fr Peter Damian Fehlner, Fr Thomas Loya on Iconography and many more).

(Listen Here For the Will Goodman’s talk on Our Lady of Guadalupe and the original meaning within the image of 1531)

(LISTEN Here For Christina King’s talk on Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Message to the Church of the 21st Century)

I have talked with some, met with others and I have read their books for the past 3 years.   Using their work, their writings and their discoveries I simply connect the dots.  While the experts see the miracle of 1531, I seek to point out the Miracle of the 21st century.  Our Lady of Guadalupe has been providentially chosen by God to re-evanglize the world, to offer healing, protection and deliverance.  She is also declaring that she is Co-Redemptrix, or rather God is declaring it in the Tilma.  All of things things are not subjective but objective proves that I can show using the Nahuatl Glyphs, the language of Iconography, theology, scripture and of course the writings of Mnsgr. Eduardo Chavez and others. I hope you enter into this great Miracle for she is the ark upon which we must board.

I would also like to share that I personally hand delivered my research to the Secretary of Cardinal Burke when we was visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse.  He was the Bishop of the Diocese I grew up in and he helped me to become a speaker by allowing me to speak throughout his Diocese and writing me a letter of recommendation.  He reviewed my work and wrote to me from Rome asking me to go see Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner at the Shrine.  Fr. Fehlner reviewed my work and offered me two of the books you see below to help me continue my research.

Here are some slide shows on Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Did you know she was predestined to be the intercessor of the America’s? Did you know the Shroud of Turin perfectly aligns with the tilma and the image of Divine Mercy? Did you know that there are new discoveries within the image proving that Heaven is re-issuing an invitation to listen to a message within it for the Church of the 21st Century, the time when the technology was invented to discover the secrets contained within it until we were ready to see, hear and act upon on it.  God is good.

Here is the descriptions of each slide:

Slide 2

Our Lady of Guadalupe was predestined to be the protector of the faithful, the remnant Church and the America’s.  The Icon was carved using Mary herself as a model by St. Joseph, “written” not painted as it is an icon, by St. Luke and then given and used as a means of protection and healing throughout the centuries.  Protection from the uprising of Radical Islam/Muslims and protection from the plague.  She is tied to Our Lady of Fatima through protecting the area from Muslims, to Our Lady of Lourdes in that the Franciscan’s formulated the dogma of the Immaculate Conception before it was formerly declared by St. Bernadette and she is tied to Our Lady of Kibeho through the 7 sorrows of the Icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico.

Slide 3

The Icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe-Spain was carried over the head of St. Gregory when the plague took the life of the Pope; St. Gregory became Pope and carried the icon over his head as he fled the city saving many of the faithful with him as they went.  He later gave the image to Bishop Leander in Spain that was enduring persecution by the moors (Radical Muslims which beheaded Catholic Christians).  I believe we will see major conversions of the Muslim faith through Mary, particularly that of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

See next slide

Slide 4

Bishop Leander pleaded for the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe-Spain the icon (she was not named yet and would be named after being discovered by a farmer upon Mary’s personal direction) next slide

Slide 5

It should be said that the area now known as Fatima was named such after Mohammad’s own daughter converted to Catholicism after falling in love with a Catholic that remained in that area under the protection of the buried Icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe-Spain.  Her husband renamed the area “Fatima” after his wife (yes the once Muslim daughter of Mohammad that converted to Catholicism) Fatima is the 2nd most frequented pilgrimage to this day for Muslims in honor of Fatima.

In 1326 a little known farmer Gil Cordero saw Mary appear to him telling him where to go to find the buried Icon.  He brought with him men from the church to the spot pointed out. It was discovered along with documents authenticating it.  Our Lady asked for a Church to be built in honor of her and the icon.  There was a river that ran near the location and so the name of the Church and the Icon became “Our Lady of Guadalupe” because Guadalupe means water that runs through/within/between the black rocks. Mnsgr. Eduardo Chavez, the world-renowned scholar on all things Our Lady of Guadalupe, has authenticated this.

1340 King Alfonso made a pilgrimage to her Church to consecrate his Land to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Slide 6

1464 King Alfonso’s daughter, Queen Isabella went on pilgrimage with her husband King Ferdinand and consecrated herself and her reign to OLG.  She would meet Christopher Columbus at a gathering.  He told her that the Holy Spirit came to him in a dream telling him that he was to go to distant lands and bring the faith to those who did not know the true God.  She had the same dream the night before and so it would seem providence brought them together.  She would become the personal benefactor and supporter of Christopher Columbus, Cortez and Bishop Zummaraga.

Slide 7

Before departing Christopher Columbus made a pilgrimage to OLG-Spain to consecrate himself, his vessels and his discoveries to OLG-Spain.  Ironically he would name the boats Saint Mary the little painted lady, almost 60 years before she would be painted in Mexico.

Slide 8

In 1519 Cortez went to the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and consecrated his voyage and his future work of bringing the faith to the new lands discovered by Columbus.  Cortez landed on the exact day of the Aztec prophesy telling of the return of the one true God and King, the sister of Montezuma also dreamed and prophesized the landing of the men and even described the image that would be on the sail of the ships (a large cross).  This is why Cortez was able to not only land without incident but it laid the grown work for him to enter into the very powerfully guarded cities.  The first thing Montezuma set to work at was to bring an end to the demonic sacrifices upon the altars.  He destroyed them the altars, held Holy Mass there to consecrate these places to God and destroy the hold the devil had claimed on this ground and their people and placed a statue of Mary on them begging her intercession.

Slide 9

So we see that Mary, particularly OLG had a unique and providential role in claiming the America’s for her son. She brought protection, guidance, deliverance, evangelization and intercession.  I will show how she is declaring once again that God has a providential message and role that she in particular is called to fill right now in this time of World History.  Once again we are entering into a demonic culture of death and need a supernatural intercessor. Once again, OLG is the answer.

Slide 10

It is no mistake that Blessed Scot Duns, a Franciscan way before Our Lady of Lourdes declared it, developed the doctrine of the “Immaculate Conception”.  The Franciscans were preaching this theology for some time.  The Franciscans were chosen to be the order to teach the faith to the America’s because this doctrine would we central to understanding the mysteries within the incarnation, the new eve and the new Adam and God’s call to union and communion with a love that is divine and free from concupiscence.

Bishop Zumarraga felt unworthy to be the Bishop of the new lands and so guessed it! He went on pilgrimage to OLG-Spain to consecrate himself and all of his work to her.  Every single one of the involved in establishing the United States of America went to OLG-Spain.  Coincidence or providence?

St. Juan Diego is significant because he is laity, simply formed and not at all a theologian and yet he was chosen to be part of God’s plan of imparting the faith in the New World.  The place where it would be protected and nurtured while Europe would later be in turmoil.  When Bishop Zumarraga struggled to share the faith he begged for OLG-Spain to intercede and asked for a sign. He asked for Castilian roses because they were from the part of Spain he was from.  She would answer that call and more. The miracle of Tepayac hill consisted of her messages, the roses he asked for as well as MANY OTHER FLOWERS that were gathered and have significance, although we only hear of the roses.

Slide 11

This is a codex.  A codex is the way in which Ancient Nahuatl Indians recorded history.  They used images and glyphs because they did not use an alphabet.  They could “read” what was “written” on a codex because every picture spoke to them as a language.  This is the original codex created by the Nahuatl Indians to record the appearance of OLG.  It was created in 1548 and further proves the miracle of Olg was not something fabricated but less than 17 years after the event they were recording it as history.

Slide 12

While almost 10 million Nahuatl Indians were converted in less than 7 years through this image it was because of the language God spoke to them that this miracle of faith was able to speak.  Not only that but the Bishop received the sign He asked for.  It was not until later however that it was understood what exactly that language was.  It was Fr. Mario Rojas Sanchez that first realized the pictures were Nahunta Glyphs and began to study them for their meanings and significance.  It should be noted that he also believed that this image was the very image spoken of in Revelations that St. John saw during mass in a mystical vision.  “And I saw the woman clothed in the sun with the moon at her feet”.  It is believed that the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was what St. John saw in the sky and then wrote of in Revelations.  This is significant because there is evidence to prove this using the constellations that are aligned on the tilma that prove in fact that it seems to miss the very stars spoken of in that passage that were “cast out of heaven by the serpents tail”.

Slide 13

A=Greater Than The Sun God (she stands in front of the sun rays to show this is greater)

B=Greater Than The Moon God (she stands on it)

C=her skin color reveals a Mix of Spanish and Nahuatl Indian (the colors of her skin is mixed)

D=Dressed like a Jewish Woman and colors are of Indian princess (she dressed both in Israelite garb but the colors where of Indian royalty)

E=Prayerful posture/ Maraca in hands with the combination of bent knee she is in posture of worship (dancing and music were part of highest worship)

F=Cincture for chaste and virginity but worn high on the woman is indicating pregnancy (revealing a virgin and mother, note there are 7 tassels)

G=Nahuii Ollin, the crossing of sticks for new fire, the N,S,E,W, the true God over the womb which is known to contain a child( in her pregnant womb is the God being proclaimed)

H=The Stars indicating outside of this world the 8 points symbolizing baptism and eschatological grace (heavenly, messenger with power from the heavens)

I=Brownish pink robe color of the earth (also a calendar, map and dignity of body expressed)

J=Flower Glyphs (Jasmine flowers significant, clusters where language for form of prayer through poetry and song)

Water glyph=they would be receive new water rooted with power from in the heavens, hill glyph combined with water=, new civilization

Wise Man Glyph=(looks like a mans face with eyes, nose and mouth, known as Shaman or man with wisdom outside of his own comprehension. This told them the knowledge of the faith being proclaimed in this codex would come from a wise man with a head shaped like a MITRE. This would be Bishop Z

Bishop MITRE=Bishop Zumaraga as having truth so they opened up and sought out the Franciscans that wore these pointed hats.

The Glyph of hill and water come together meaning “civilization” and spoke of an end to human sacrifice (it is Upside down heart) and a new civilization would be built upon this God’s truths as revealed since the water way is rooted or flows out of the outer mantle piece which they understood as divine and from the heavens because of coloring and the 8 pointed Gold Stars.

K=Broach of Franciscan Cross (the same as the Franciscans boats and symbols)

L=White Fur cuffs for purity &amp; royal (for Aztecs this again connoted great royalty)

M=Mexican Magnolia flower of flesh (understood as food so Eucharistic message within this image, not to mention the overall shape which is corn shaped, a staple of their diet.  In fact St. Juan Diego proclaimed, “Is this the land of the flesh the land of my people” when he went to the Hill and spoke with OLG there).

N=Aztec Fold precious cargo (This is the place children or food were carried.  Since the tilma was a part of everyday attire.

O=Topographical Map of Mexico revealing water ways mountains and volcano’s revealing location of the apparition and the flowers clusters are calendar represents the end of an age.  There were signs in the heaven at this time, storms, earthquakes and volcanoes. Their calendar based on Mayan calendars used “reeds” to understand time.  This image revealed a calendar within the flower glyphs so in this image the year of the 13 reeds was upon them signifying an end to an age and beginning of another age.  That age is the end to demonic human sacrifice and the beginning of the age of Faith.  We too are being invited into this image because we are leaving the age of Mercy and the age of Justice is upon us.  St. Faustina’s messages from Jesus declared this.

P=Gold lined convey godlike or royalty

Q=the angel holds the mantle and the robe

R=Clouds convey outside of this world/God

S=Crown originally present on her head but disappeared

Slide 14

Nothing

Slide 15

There is a new message being heralded to the Church of the 21st century in the image on the tilma.  The invitation was made when the technology was created in the world to discover that hidden within the image were undiscovered meaning.

Slide 16

In an image where everything means something, we discover using high-powered microscopes that there are images in the eyes of those gathered in the room when the tilma was presented to Bishop Zummaraga.  14 people including St. Juan Diego himself and Bishop Zummaraga as well as a family and a black servant freed from slavery by the Bishop that decided to stay in His service.  This was only investigated AFTER seeing the servant in the eye but was confirmed using eyewitness testimony that was documented.  The eye also had the components of a living eye. The (Samson-Purkinje effect is a scientific term for the way the cornea reflects incoming images and inverts one of the three created reflections onto the back of a living eye.  Using microscopes it was discovered that this effect is present in the image of the eye of OLG.

Using advanced Kepler’s mathematics as well as NASA computer software, a computer image of the morning sky of 1531 was created and discovered to align perfectly with the stars laid out on the mantle of OLG.  More significantly they are inverted, the North and south and east and west are turned.  This is the way the Nahuatl Indians created their own maps so that would be significant by itself but perhaps more importantly it signifies that was what up (remember the nahuii ollin reveals that the Indians see the 4 directions of the world signifying God) that the God who is up has come down (incarnation) and for us it reminds us that was down (the enemy) is up and roaming about the world.  We are being invited into a message about what this spiritual battle is all about.  Who it is we are fighting, his battle plan and how we are to defeat him.  This was all discovered now because the message is for us now.  Using the original message and meanings of the glyphs as well as the language of Iconography (an approved and ancient means of teaching theology in color as well as the constellations and their Christian roots) we see clearly that God providentially chose Mary to bring us Jesus, she is the intercessor from which we will board the ark of the new covenant and with her the Gates of Hell will not prevail against us.

Slide 17

Behold I make all things new! Why would it surprise us that if God created man and out of his side he would create woman, immaculately conceived and free from sin much like that of Adam before the fall and make all things new by taking Man from the flesh of Mary? Her immaculate conception gave the hands and feet upon which the savior of the world would be formed.  With no biological father, Mary is the only flesh upon which Jesus was created.  It is taking from her side, man.  The new Adam and the new eve.  Most of us who understand science know that men and women share different chromosomes.  You can split a twin from one flesh but you will get the same sex not a male and female.  However, God created us in His image and likeness, Male and female he created them so the supernatural component of the immortal soul into the flesh is somehow inexplicably tied to our sexuality as well as our intellect and biology.

One of the messages being heralded in the image of OLG is that of the New Adam and The New Eve.  It is an invitation to understand His mother and her unique role in salvation history as well as our own.  She was creature yet able to do what Mary could not or would not revealing she is our hope because as mere mortal creature it is possible to live out the will of God despite living in a broken world. It also heralds a call that all of us are to enter into the redemption of the world since God is the one who decided to work through human beings.

Slide 18

She perfectly participated even in eschatological man, she has received her Glorified body and so paves the way for us.  God came to redeem man and woman and there is something very important about the relationship of man and woman and the call to love.  The love He desires to share with the world is love perfected, free from concupiscence and it heals and restores.  He is also revealing who He is, whom God Himself is through this call to love.  The incarnation and the message of the New Adam and New Even are a theology of love and He desires we share it with the world.

Slide 19

The first pilgrimage the New Pope took was to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico to consecrate his entire pontificate to her.  He also took the writings of St. Faustina out of the obscurity, (they were deemed unworthy of belief) and launched a full investigation, cleared the writings, gave them to the world and pronounced Divine Mercy Sunday and the Chaplet.  Mary’s pope understood, perhaps mystically that his particular role, that of Our Lady of Guadalupe was part of God’s plan to heal, protect and evangelize the world once again.

Slide 20

Within the inner robes of the tilma lies the torso of the crucified Jesus Christ with his heart pierced and the blood and water running down the side.  It is not subjective but can be proved in several ways.  One way is the nahuatl glyphs themselves another is that the dimensions of the tilma and the shroud are in exact proportion with one another.  The divine mercy image is also proportionate with the shroud.  They not only align over one another but they tell the same story when you do it.  Right where the pierced heart of Jesus pours out blood and water we see the line of deep red pigment (which Guadeloupian scholars have all described as the color of blood) flowing down the side of the three folds that extend just under the Nahuii Ollin and pooling into the Aztec Fold.  The same scholars say that the shadows of pooling are not consistent with the lighting so they are unsure why it pools in this way, but if we acknowledge it is blood and water it pools exactly the way this liquid would.  The glyphs within this segment shout the truth of what is revealed.  The stream of water and blood, which many of us understand as the pierced heart of Jesus, the font of Mercy described by St. Faustina, were given to us by Pope John Paul II, without His approval we would not be venerating the image nor sharing the message of Divine Mercy in the world.  Right in the Wise Man glyph, at the very corner of his mouth is where the blood and water begin their flow as if to say Out of the mouth of the wise man, the man you know as Bishop with the MITRE hat (again all approved understandings and translation by experts) that this Pope spewing out of his mouth the font of Divine Mercy to the world.

It should be noted that the there are many more glyphs within the tilma that back up this claim.  So we see an image of the love of the trinity and who God is through that sign.  If God so loved the world he gave us his son, we see now with the crucified torso of Jesus with his heart pierced and flowing out unto the precious treasure of the world, we see Jesus loving the father in that he gives himself as a free, total and full gift, faithfully and fruitfully back to the father.  The trinity is revealed here in this and for anyone having problems with Mary seeing the torso of Jesus in this way may be a means of drawing him or her into the fold.  This part of the Icon has as if an inner light that shines and radiates from the image.  Anyone who lays eyes on the image would see that there seems to be a light that illuminates from within this one area making it to appear to be more radiant than the rest of the image.

Slide 21

The First Icons were in fact created using the Shroud of Turn as the template so why would not God Himself speak through the language of Iconography.  It should be noted the flower shaped glyph shapes on the shroud image in red.  Some scholars have wondered why they look “child like” but if you understand the Nahunta Glyphs and the connection of the icon of the new eve (tilma) and the icon of the new Adam (shroud) it makes perfect sense.  Just as a man’s body makes no sense by itself but only when understood in light of the complementarity of a woman’s body and equal in dignity do we see an expression of complementarity and that “male and female” he created them in His own image.

Slide 22

There even seems to appear beams of light that come of the area on the surrounding area.  This is visible in most of the print images but even more so from Fr. Tim’s images.  He was granted special permission to capture the image in an unprecedented way.  Given full access to the image, to control the lighting and to use high power digital photography, Fr. Tim as created over 40 detailed tiles that he then spliced together to create one very precise image.  It is said to be the most accurate and detailed “photograph” of the image in existence and can be viewed one tile at a time to see detailing within the image almost never seen before. Just as an icon is written to reveal the Heavenly message and doorway that it is, so too is this icon of OLG revealing that this is an icon, a doorway, theology in color, a poor mans catechism. In a world where people seem to no longer be able intellectually reason out faith, perhaps once more Heaven will speak through an image but are we listening? This is not just a historical document.  This is an ongoing miracle that is declaring itself to have a message for the Church in the age in which the technology to discover the message would find it.  Why, in an image where every detail means something is no one asking why these details are being discovered using modern technology? Why is no one asking, “Do you think Heaven is trying to tell us something” I say yes, in fact it is being heralded.

Slide 23

The tilma is significant for many reasons.  One it was simple cloth, made of cactus fiber, a plant.  It was traditional covering for the Indians. It was a covering of the body that signified family affiliations and sometimes-rank dependent upon its splendor.  This material was used in marriage ceremonies.  The two would be tied together to signify union between man and woman.  It seems this being chosen as the canvas is revealing that every person is significant, that marriage is significant, that laity will be playing a significant role and that that ceremony/ritual is significant and that God wants to tell us something about all of these things.

TILMA; Tilma worn during marriage ceremonies, worn on the body as a covering. Bridegroom and Bride are tied together as a symbol of their union during ceremony of wedding. It also is used to carry children later, in the fold, which is then tied around the waist of the person. The Tilma is worn by average people therefore revealing that ALL are called to Union and Communion. Two pieces of cloth were sewn together; in fact the center of this cloth is the exact middle of the image. It is where two have become one. Two pieces of cloth become one garment. This also brings dignity to male and female he created them as marriage is only between a man and a woman. In the image, I content the exact center of the tilma is also where the divine mercy image is in the robe.

Slide 24 &amp; 25 nothing

Slide 26

3. The Redemption of Man and Woman; The New Adam and The New Eve

TILMA; Not only do the constellation’s placed precisely over her image where theological truths are conveyed, but she reveals that her immaculate conception is woman fully participating in the redemption of man. Just as Eve took of the apple and ate, so did Adam and so BOTH fell from the glory of what God had intended for them. In God’s plan for the redemption of man, He could have done it by any means He saw fit, yet, He chose for the participation of mankind, and begun so through a woman. Male and female He created them, so would not God make it known that male and female they are redeemed? If we are made in his image, male and female, then we see how beautiful it is that before Christ takes His flesh from her; the merits of His sacrifice are applied to her at the very moment of her conception. OLGuadalupe appears to St. Juan Diego on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, linking this truth to the image.

This truth is “written” in the constellation of Gemini over her womb on the tilma.  The twin constellation reveals the splitting of flesh, the two coming from one as Adam and Eve so too Mary and Jesus come from one flesh with His divine nature coming from God alone.  In Song of Songs the love we are to have for one another is to be able to call our spouse our sister and our bride.  How does one love this way? We love this way when the two become one flesh.  We desire to love them for their own sake not ours, we are family we are intimately connected and this is a foreshadowing of our call to union and communion with God.  We were made by love, to love and for love and our destiny is to be with God forever in Heaven.

Slide 27

The most used analogy of the bible is a wedding.  It is the teaching of the relationship between the bride and bridegroom that most accurately describes the relationship God is calling us to.  He is calling us to the wedding feast.  The first miracle Jesus Performed was the Wedding Feast of Cana. This was for many reasons one of which was to show us that He was giving us new wine.  This new wine is the love of God poured out for many.  The sacred vessels used, the water that was contained in them and the fact that the quality of the wine was mentioned all point to God showing us that He is coming to restore and to make New by giving us His love free from sin.  In the incarnation is a language of Love. In every faith that exists EXCEPT Christianity the person must do something for God.  IN Christianity, God came to us.  Mary had it done unto her.  She did nothing other than open herself in love.  The Song of Songs is the language of the bride and the bridegroom when loving as sister my bride.  The invitation of a gentle lover that Woo’s his bride and does not force.  The love that remains faithful and gentle and merciful is shared with a world desperate to understand what love is.  The message of the Song of Songs is in the tilma.  The flower glyphs even create a re-occurring melody when a pin is placed within the flower’s center.  The Indians used flower clusters as poetry, music and prayer so of course once again, now that we have technology to discover the music found within the image, we are being re-invited to listen the message within the Song of Songs, the call to marriage.  Not just any marriage, the call to union and communion with our almighty God in the wedding feast of land.  Will we be like the virgins that prepared by gathering oil or will God say he does not know us? Knowing of course is about intimacy and relationship (Mary knew not man).  God of course knows all of us but we are called to be in relationship.  Mary is reminding us of this.

Slide 28

She healed.  She is revealing a unique healing she desires to be a font of that will pour out onto the world and from that font will be the Mercy of Jesus Christ.  She is Our Lady of Mercy because she heralds it in the glyphs, the iconography and the message.  She is revealing that we are being attacked and wounded in a threefold attack.  What is this attack? It is a demonic trinity.

Slide 29-30 nothing

Slide 31

She even stares into the eyes of the dragon as if to show us she is going to do battle and that in her eyes she holds the family and the Church.  The truth to see will come from being within her as if an ark to protect us from the coming siege.  I believe Consecration to Mary through St. Louis DE Montfort accomplishes this as a first step.

She then reveals that the dragon brings lies, division, schism and confusion.  It is important to note that the big bear constellation and little bear constellation are under the influence of the lies and divisions.

The Scorpion is an ancient evil force at work in the world since the very beginning.  In the bible the serpent is referred to the great perverter and wounder.  It wounds through perversion of sexuality.  It emasculates, it controls, it is Jezebel, it is Lilith it is isis, Osiris and horis and it’s one desire is to work with the liar to confuse our understanding of what it means to be a man and woman and to create great woundedness so that we can not enter into God’s plan of love and salvation.

The Serpent is the enemy that brings death.  Spiritual death and physical death.  Many Theologians and scholars of the Church understand the great sacredness of blood.  God himself has made blood part of how he enters into sacred covenant with His people and this has been done since the beginning of time. The enemy, having no real power of his own, and uses what he knows as truth and follows, in a legalistic way?  The enemy presents a lie “Did God really say you can’t eat from the tree of knowledge?” to bring division, schism, distrust and doubt as to what is true.  The next step is to pervert being made in the image and likeness of God.  The best way to do this is through wounds. The enemy enters in through wounds.  The most intimate to wound is through our sexuality because it is intimately tied to our personhood.  It is not just our bodies that are man and woman, masculine or feminine it is also our very personhood.  Physical abuse, mental abuse and verbal abuse are all means to create wounds but sexual abuse is the most intimate and deep cutting wound because is creates a chasm between us and our creator because our purpose and identity becomes distorted. Not to mention the sacrementality of the body.  The enemy realizes this and desires to create his own demonic sacraments using blood.  Sexual abuse and abortion, prostitution, murder all spill blood and so they create a contract and a means of gaining a toehold, a foothold a stronghold in our lives.  When we agree with the lies and submit our will saying “I am unloved, no one will ever love me, I am alone, I will always be alone” we of our own free will turn from God inwards making false idols that are presented to us. This creates a network of wounding that Mary desires to reveal so that we can be made fully whole. She is coming to restore the Church. She is revealing and shining light on the darkness and she is bringing a grace of supernatural healing, protection and perhaps an even “hiding” from the evil one as we work.  She is receptivity and so being in the presence of this image painted by the finger of God of Mary onto the tilma is a divinely “written” and created image.  If she is pure receptivity, openness fertile ground then perhaps a grace of receptivity flows from the image and touches all in its presence through the doorway of the icon.  The teachings of the church are that Icons are spiritual doorways.  Doors move two ways.  We can both enter in and God can come to us.  She is coming to expose the enemy so that we can be healed.  Like St. Ignatius says, we are to be filled not for our sakes but so that we can overflow onto those around us. We have been leaking out the graces we are receiving through the cracks and crevices the evil one has made in the form that God created us into being. Some of us are chalices called to be a life of sacrifice, some of us are Reeds, hallowed out and emptied so the Holy Spirit can play lyrically through our lives some of us are like a birds nest hallowed out by the loving tenderness of family life and love.  In each of the forms we are it is our perfect form.  When we embrace the emptiness through vulnerability and turning outwards toward God and away from the lies and false idols, she will pour a healing salve into our form and seal the places we are leaking.  We then will be able to be filled to overflowing so that we may bring a drink to others who thirst. We are called to be tabernacles, to the hands and feet upon which to bring Christ to a wounded world and she is showing us the way and the how.   If you have anger issues, your issue is not anger it is an idolatry of control as a means to protect the root of the wound, which is usually an abandonment wound.  If you have lust issues, the issue is not the lust in fact it is called a distress symptom.  It is the neon sign and God’s mercy is trying to get your attention to point you to a place you may have come in agreement with the enemy with a lie that is of your own free will preventing you from finding freedom in this area in your life.  The idolatry found connected to lust is relationship.  When we distrust God we turn to others or a relationship to make us feel whole.  Why? Because we are protecting the real root of the wound which is a rejection issue.  “No one loves me, I am ugly, disgusting, repulsive” If we agree with the lie the enemy proposes he has permission to infest or perhaps even oppress us.  He stirs up our fears and emotions and presents more lies (distorted thoughts).  Some may turn to pornography, promiscuity, a spouse or other to fill the void to quiet the voice of feeling unworthy and unloved because they do not see they have turned inward instead of outward.  We, all of us are failing to see that the first commandment is the one the enemy is using over and over to attack us.  He proposes that we must turn to ourselves.  He proposes we are only animals, He proposes there is no God.  Mary comes expose the liar, bring truth, healing and once again evangelize the world as to who God is and what the incarnation means to us as well as prepare the world for Jesus once again.  She is the ark.

Slide 32

It begins with consecration.  It continues with you placing this image in your own home, perhaps next to an image of Divine Mercy.  Through the image, she seems to be saying she will pour out a gift of receptivity so that as the Holy Spirit is pouring out Graces upon the world in preparation for Jesus to come again, we will not only be able to retain them and utilize them we will be able to bring a portion to others.  Her mantle is often referred to as a protection for the faithful, to hide us there in the crossing of her arms, within her mantle.  She seems to be inviting us to step into the folds and hide from the enemy and to allow her to do the battle with the dragon as she will crush the serpent.
