Those who rely on me implicitly will feel the dew-laden breeze of the Spirit enfolding them…

Revelation 9:18 By these three plagues of fire, smoke, and sulfur that came out of their mouths a third of the human race was killed.

“My child, does this verse frighten you?”

Lord it is hard to bear, especially if these events are near.

“Do not rely on your own strength but strengthen yourself by increasing your trust and hope in me. All who rely on their own strength will suffer, but those who rely on me implicitly will feel the dew-laden breeze of the Spirit enfolding them. My children, remain close to me as I remain close to you. Enclose yourselves in my heart and bring with you all those I have given you to pray for. I have not left you orphaned. Cry out, “Abba!” and I will be there before the sound has faded.”

Abba! We place all our trust in you. You are our sure hope and we enclose ourselves in the safe refuge of your heart through Jesus Christ our Savior and Brother. In the Divine Will we enclose also all those you have given us to pray for. Beloved Abba, for the sake of your Beloved Son, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.

    Abba!! I’ll put all my trust in you and only in you! For the sake of his sorrowful passion, have MERCY on us and the whole world!!!

    Am I wrong to think this is where we are in revelations? The 6th trumpet? Nuclear war? God bless!

    Psalm 22:5-6 “5. In you our fathers trusted; they trusted and you rescued them. 6. To you they cried out and they escaped; in you they trusted and were not disappointed.”

    For those who may not know why the term Abba: “Abba is actually an Aramaic word, which most scholars feel is the language that our Lord Jesus Christ spoke during His human existence upon this earth. “‘Abba’ is the word framed by the lips of infants, and betokens unreasoning trust; ‘father’ expresses an intelligent apprehension of the relationship. The two together express the love and intelligent confidence of the child” [W. E. Vine, An Expository Dictionary of NT Words, p. 9]. As previously noted, this word appears only three times in the NT writings. “The word does not occur in either the Hebrew OT or the Septuagint” [Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible, vol. 1, p. 6]. This rather special term “is the Aramaic diminutive for ‘Father,’ perhaps suggesting the overtones of the English word ‘Daddy’” [The Expositor's Bible Commentary, vol. 10, p. 473]. “It is the Aramaic intimate form for father or daddy” [ibid, vol. 8, p. 764]. “Abba was the address of a small child to his father” [J. Jeremias, The Lord's Prayer, p. 19]. Few biblical and linguistic scholars will disagree with the premise that this word clearly suggests significant familial intimacy…”

    Papa GOD, truly hear us before the sound fades….Oh JESUS how we Trust in YOU!!! Save many, many souls!!! Amen.

    Wow! Pelianito, I love your prayerful response to the Lord’s words. I couldn’t have said it any better. Thank you Lord, for developing in us and confirming the need to Trust in You with our whole hearts, body, minds and spirits! Jesus, I trust in You! Blessed Mother, I consecrate myself to you! Holy Spirit, I place all my faith in You! Eternal Father, have mercy on me, a poor sinner! AMEN!

    Oh, Lord… You know I am the weakest. I would probably die of fright from the coming events, and I’m even scared of that happening. Please sustain me, for I can’t even take one breath without You.

  6. pelianitoon 25 Jun 2012 at 6:47 am

    Carol S I am not good with timelines. I am just a messenger. Fire, smoke and sulfur to me indicate volcanic eruptions. But it could likely be both. Abba Father we trust in you.

  7. Danielleon 25 Jun 2012 at 7:46 am

    “Abba” is what my husband and I named our third child, born on the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception – December 8, 2011. Allan (aj): I have already heard her saying “Abba” in her cooing and “talking”! What a beautiful and comforting sound!!!

    Confidentially, my husband dreamt that Nicki Minaj seduced him, after she saw that he had our children – Yeshowah (Jesus), Em-Miryam (Mother Mary) and Abba. She said that because of whom our children were named after, he would be “perfect” to have him impregnate her. We interpreted this meant the Anti-Christ of sorts, as of course, Nicki Minaj has been proven to be an Illuminati puppet and an entertainer fallen prey to Satan. Our prayers over our children have strengthened since!!!

    Abba-Father-God: we put our FULL FAITH in You and only YOU! You are the only One we need. Help all of us and those around us to start shedding our material things, start shedding our selves and get to the core of our souls. Lord Jesus, we thank You!! Thank You for the challenges, obstacle, tests, hardships – for these are TRUE tests of Faith! With these, we rely only on our WILL, not our intellect or scientific superficiality. Thank You Jesus, Mama Mary and St. Joseph.

    “And bring all of those I have given you to pray for”, how this touched my heart. Do we not all feel that there is someone in our life right now, perhaps a child, a spouse and sibling etc that we dedicate so much of our prayers for? I know I have someone in my family that I offer much of my prayers, sacrifices for. So often I feel my prayers are not heard, but then I keep reminding myself that God always brings the greater good out of every bit of suffering especially when we remember to offer that suffering to Him. Take all suffering, past and present and future, and offer them to God especially for those in each of our lives who we all are praying for with great need. Jesus, I know and trust that You hear every prayer and will answer them according to Your Divine Will. Place Your peace in our hearts and transform the hearts of those You entrusted to us to pray for. I bind all those entrusted to each of You to my prayers and ask that you do the same for mine. May the peace of Christ be with each of you always.

    This is a wonderful confirmation for me … a great blessing and grace! Yesterday, after receiving our Lord, I knelt down and spoke with Him. I spoke with Him as I usually do … offering Him all of me … praying for Him to stay with me … praying for Him to transform me as He wishes … telling Him how much I love Him. I was then given an interior vision … I saw Him, His Sacred Heart blazing, walk toward me, His arms wide open. I fell silent and watched Him in awe and love. He took me in His arms and enfolded me into His Sacred Heart and peace immediately washed over me and filled me. All was stillness and I was gazing out at the world from the vantage point of being within His Sacred Heart. His arms remained open as He continued to gather His children, but all I felt was peace and complete union with Him. I felt Him say, ‘stay here, I will take care of everything’ … I did not feel like I had to do anything except to just be with Him and stay in His Sacred Heart. He gave me the grace to see the world and His children as He sees us … through His Heart. I was not worried at all … such peace. Everything, literally everything, He is mindful of and has complete control over. I have always known that intellectually and perhaps sometimes felt it too … but I never felt it to the depths I felt it when He tucked me into His Sacred Heart. I felt the lesson He offered too. His Heart IS the safe refuge. Outside of it we are lost and overwhelmed with worldly fear. Safely ensconced within His Sacred Heart, it does not matter what happens ‘out there’ … He has it all in His Precious Hands! This morning as I began my morning prayers, I imaged myself in His Sacred Heart in the way He showed me and from that peaceful Sacred place, I prayed. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus I love you so very much. Jesus we trust in You! I am so deeply grateful for this confirmation today

    aj, one wonders why most babies first word is “da da”. Many say its because it is easier to pronounce, I have recently come to believe that it is a child’s first prayer.

    God Bless,

    Becky-TN

  13. Becky-TNon 25 Jun 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Dearest Abba, I am so frightened. So many depend on me and I fear of failing them as I have failed you. While I know I ask for forgiveness and mercy all the time, I still feel fear and stress. I am so broken and I feel you trying to pull me out of where I am to where you are, but fear surrounds my every move b/c I don’t want to disappoint you. Fear that in the end, you will forget your promises that you will never abandon me. Help me Abba!!!!!

  14. pelianitoon 25 Jun 2012 at 1:13 pm

    All these confirmations are truly humbling! When I received the Scripture passage for this message, I hesitated. I have never felt comfortable with the hard messages, something which Our Lord chastised me for a long time ago. When I asked him for a confirmation he commanded me to “Write!” So I did. And his words of love and consolation poured forth for his little children. Then here we read numerous powerful confirmations. And I am humbled. God is so patient to use such a stubborn donkey to carry his Word. Jesus I trust in you!

  15. Jeanneon 25 Jun 2012 at 1:33 pm

    This morning for a little visit in the Eucharistic Adoration chapel at my church, I picked up Fr. Lasance’s book “Peace I Leave With You”.
    Inside he said how do we know if we are people of good will?
    People who do God’s will are people of good will.
    Just wanted to share…….

  16. Danielleon 25 Jun 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Peli: your OBEDIENCE is what helps so many of us, and like a spider’s web, spreads to our loved ones, neighbours and friends. I always pray for the DIN or noise of this world to be blocked out so that I can hear Him. His Voice can be so loud and thunderous, yet He can also be extremely quiet. I think that most ofetn He is quiet to force those who wish to listen to Him to really sit down and be still, relax and concentrate.

  17. Edithon 25 Jun 2012 at 2:17 pm

    Peli, I was really struck by the words “you will feel the dew-laden breeze of the Spirit…” as it brought to mind the Priest’s prayer from the new Missal: “Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like the DEWFALL, so that they may become for us the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.” ~ Epiclesis of the Mass, New Roman Missal
    Here’s a quote from: http://praythemass.org/2012/01/like-the-dewfall/
    “By sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall.” Can any literary image provide a gentler illustration of the non-imposing, non-offensive love from God our father to his children? God does not force us to love him. His gifts are not forced on us like baby food in the mouth of an obstinate toddler. His Spirit we receive openly, but without fanfare, and often times without notice until it manifests itself in our lives as an outward sign of God’s love to others. Similarly, the word dewfall, I suspect, was chosen to illustrate that the Holy Spirit descends ever so gently from heaven above. In the same way, God sent manna to the Israelites in the form of dew falling down from heaven. In the morning there was a layer of dew all about the camp, and when the layer of dew evaporated, fine flakes were on the surface of the wilderness, fine flakes like hoarfrost on the ground. On seeing it, the Israelites asked one another, “What is this?” for they did not know what it was. But Moses told them, “It is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.” (Exodus 16:13-15) The word dewfall not only indicates moisture on the ground, but gives specific direction, that it began in one place and ended in another, specifically from heaven down to earth as if the dewfall was intended to reach a certain recipient. It is not inconsequential dew which just appears on the grass and leaves, but is dewfall which is directed by God the Father in heaven to his children here on earth, just as the Holy Spirit.”

  18. DLon 25 Jun 2012 at 5:35 pm

    Oh most Holy Spirit surround and fill me with Thy Most Holy Light. I cover myself with the Most Precious Blood of JESUS. I lift myself up and place myself in the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I bind all evil spirits in the name of JESUS!

  19. pelianitoon 25 Jun 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Edith thank you for this explanation of dewfall. I love that line in the Mass and always listen for it. The dewfall in this message reminded me of the three young men in the fiery furnace in Daniel 3:49-50

    But the angel of the Lord went down into the furnace with
    Azariah and his companions,
    drove the fiery flames out of the furnace,
    and made the inside of the furnace as though a dew-laden
    breeze were blowing through it. The fire in no way touched
    them or caused them pain or harm.

    I believe that is one of the comforting images the Lord wished to convey. Meaning that the fire referred to in the Revelation passage can be dispelled through prayer and trust in God. And again the words of the three young men to King Nebuchadnazzar: 17 “If our God, whom we serve, can save us from the white-hot furnace and from your hands, O king, may he save us! 18 But even if he will not, know, O king, that we will not serve your god or worship the golden statue which you set up.”

    Jesus we trust in you!

    Mary Therese thank you for posting Mary Clark ! I’ve hit the jack pot ! Peli mark mallet and now Mary Clark! I read the apocalypse message and it was pure beauty to me. When I came back to my faith I was really scared, fear etc. I use to think chastisement was so cruel but now I view it as great love from our Father!! Amazing ! I love messages from Jesus! I feel so close and loved. I pray more people come closer to Him and feel the love and see His beauty! He’s in control of everything! I love that!! Trust. I KNOW I can trust in Jesus. That was hard, I’ve never really trusted. Jesus I love you. Fear melts away with trust. May God bless all tonight!

  23. Kathy AEon 25 Jun 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Especially after the references to fire, smoke, and sulfur killing 1/3 of humanity, how refreshing to know that the Father will send us a “dewladen breeze”, cooling and countering the fire. This whole word from Peli is one of such tenderness and consolation. Who could be afraid with such an Abba? Constantly work to trust Him IMPLICITLY.
    I took another look at IMPLICIT. Doesn’t it mean implied, taken for granted, a given. Isn’t it a given that we are to trust Him? Isn’t it unheard of that we would not be able to trust Him? What could hurt His sensitive Heart more than that we little ones for whom He died would not trust Him absolutely? Doesn’t a little child who has been tenderly loved all her life throw herself into her father’s arms without reserve? This is implicit trust. Anything else is unthinkable.
    And yet, we continue to be afraid–poor frail creatures that we are. How can we learn trust then? Practice. As I find myself worrying about little things that go on every day, I am trying harder than ever to turn them loose, saying, “Jesus, I’m going to trust that to You. Take care of that for me. Whatever You want to do about it is okay with me. Your will.” The stress leaves. The issue is resolved. It’s such a simplistic practice, but I find my trust is growing all the time. It’s just not enough to say TRUST, TRUST, TRUST at prayer time. Not for me, anyway. I have to practice in live situations, daily. If anyone else out there is having the same problem, you might try this.

    Wow Peli – thanks for that remarkable Bible reference; I discovered in looking it up that the Protestant Bibles don’t contain the verses of Daniel 3 after the thirtieth verse! Fancy that I only just made that discovery now, having converted from the Protestant church over 16 years ago!

  26. pelianitoon 26 Jun 2012 at 7:23 am

    KAE, I think many of us feel we are being tested in the school of trust. My workplace has never been so stressful as it has been these last few weeks. I think some of it may be the evil influence, but God is using it to build me up in trust.

  27. Kathrynon 26 Jun 2012 at 9:11 am

    Becky-TN, If you are a mother, or if you can imagine, would a mother (or father) be angry with a child who falls when it is learning to walk? Of course not! Getting back up and trying again is what the parent wants of the child–they are not angry at the fall. They want to child to continue to try because the end result will be the ability to walk! It is the same with us…God craves our return to Him when we fall–it is that which matters. I have heard the saints say that do not fall into the trap of pride that we can do anything without His help–all good comes from Him. If we continue to fall (and most will), just give your weakness to Him as well. St. Therese considered herself the weakest of all His children, and she said that this made her dear to Him because she could do nothing herself..all was God. It is not the failing that matters the most (although our goal is to strive for the best always), it is the return to God in humility that He cannot resist–this is the Good News that Jesus came to share with us: God LOVES always! He will ALWAYS keep His promises–that is one worry in this world of ours that you do not need to have dear sister! :)

  28. pelianitoon 26 Jun 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Consider also that it is a form of pride to reject God’s mercy, to think our sins are way too bad for his forgiveness, to doubt that we are forgiven. If God says he will forgive us through the sacrament, HE WILL. It is done. Be at peace.

    (I’m not sure why I wrote that, but I just felt called to.)

    One of the dream/visions that I had about 15 years ago was of my husband and me running out of a world engulfed in flames –and we were totally comfortable and moving lightly like angels–feeling “the dew-laden breeze of the Spirit enfolding us”!

  31. Karenon 26 Jun 2012 at 6:05 pm

    last night i hosted my rosary group at my home and we had a guest come and speak to the group about the devotion to Our Lady of America, i took the day off and cleaned and prepared and i felt like i was having a party and thought i am it is for Mary. I was so peaceful and joyful the image was left
    here and we will share it from home to home it is not miraculeous but beautiful, i have been thinking about this devotion for a number of years and although i am slow i feel that i finally did what the Blessed Mother expected me to do.
    even with all the worry and fear i feel peaceful just thought i would share God Bless

    Last night I was at the Eucharistic Adoration chapel and I was turning over in my head a situation at work, when the Lord,
    “shouted” in my heart, “Look at ME! Not at that.”
    I immediately repented and sought Him whom my heart loves.

    I am so glad we have eachother in this Peli-site. God bless you all!

    To follow Jeanne’s Eucharistic Adoration story–read Mary Clark’s post from June 26, 2012– in front of the Blessed Sacrament either online or in person… I’m not sure that Mary Clark has any realization that this message has especially deep meaning for those who have Jesus present in the Eucharist:

    Let us pray for a dew-laden breeze to engulf the state of Colorado that is experiencing such horrific wildfires at this time. Heavenly Father, beloved Abba, we cry out to you for the sake of those whose homes are being threatened in Colorado. In your perfect mercy, send the dew-laden breeze of the Holy Spirit to enfold every person and keep them safe. Protect life, limb and property, for you are God. We ask these prayers through Jesus your beloved Son and our beloved Savior. Amen.

    Lauralee that was a powerful moment you shared between you and the Lord. How beautiful is your relationship with Him! He is awesome, isn’t He?!
    In a more “earthly” way, Jesus has demonstrated to me very concretely that I can go through even the most heartbreaking events and if I stay within Him I not only come out un-destroyed but even more joyful and strengthened than ever before. At my daughter’s ballgame the other evening I was told by a longtime acquaintance from our parish that my trials had caused me to glow and made me even prettier than I was before. I thought to myself, huh? How could this be?? Well, it is the joy of the Lord. This is the only logical answer and I said so. I proclaimed the Lord’s faithfulness and how I’d had to rely on Jesus so much and He had (is) to carry me.

    I believe this message of Peli here is Jesus true promise that in His heart we will make it through everything that is going to play out in HIS GLORIOUS PLAN !! Jesus we trust in you. It’s getting rough out here in the world but has anyone noticed the stunning skies this summer and the way that the flowers are blooming in lush intensity?? It strikes me as extra beautiful or maybe my perception is just heightened.

    I treasure all of you who comment and gather here at Peli ‘s blog. It’s like having wonderful camaraderie in God and spiritual direction of the finest. I have gained SO much here from you all.

    Love , Lynn

    Please pray for America. Obamacare was upheld in it’s entirety today. This is a disaster on so many fronts, but most of all because of it’s life destroying elements. Birth control, abortion, mandated taxes that most can’t pay…the list goes on and on. It means economic despair for America along with high tension along ideological lines. This is a victory for our President, who I believe to be a very, very bad man. We must pray for his conversion along with so many who rule over us.

    Lord have mercy on our country. Have mercy on your faithful as we beg you for forgiveness. We have reaped what we have sown.

  39. Jeanon 28 Jun 2012 at 10:31 am

    I suppose others are already posting the news that the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. Inexplicably, I have felt great trepidation in the last few days for a number of reasons, one of which was this looming decision. The other is the wildfires out west and recent developments in the Middle East. I’ve been ‘asleep’ in my spiritual life recently and really frolicking through Spring and Summer as though nothing in the world were wrong. But a few days ago after a beautiful picnic and swim day with my family here at my home, I got the most intense feeling of dread and shame as I laid in bed thinking about the day. The feeling was that the whole world is ready to burst into a giant conflagration while I’ve all but abandoned the road to holiness for a much easier road. Morning Mass was supplanted by longer siestas in the morning; evening Adoration came almost to a grinding halt while I sat home too long after work perusing the network. Rosaries are said while driving or sitting by the pool or quickly in between other summer activities, or sometimes rushed through at bedtime as I’m falling asleep. Meanwhile the world is read to explode. At least this is the feeling that overcame me in recent days. I felt ashamed and yet I could not pick myself up and renew the fervor I once had. I am beyond a battle-weary soldier after battle. I’m literally now shell-shocked and suffering in some spiritual way from post-traumatic stress disorder, jumping in fright at every challenge, turning in dread away from every Cross, incapable of rising up to the call of a Christian who believes, hopes, offers, and submits to all that God commands of them. I feel like salt without taste; listless, indifferent, immobilized. I’m frightened about this; God is calling but I can’t seem to answer His call. Yesterday I felt an overwhelming compulsion to fast and yet I did NOT do it! My God, I wonder how that little sacrifice might have made a difference to the outcome today? Sure, I have not power and it is such a little act; but God is all powerful, and who knows what He would have done with that sacrifice? Worse, how weak am I that I could not give up some potato chips for such a worthy cause?

    And now the news that Obamacare survived the Supreme Court Challenge on the pretense that the mandate to purchase insurance amounts to a tax. Why does this frighten me? Because now, for the first time ever, I can actually see prison in my future. That is to say, when the government compels me to purchase insurance that includes a charge for abortion services for women, I have no choice but to refuse. Now they have the legal means to imprison me for ‘tax evasion’ if I refuse. I am deeply troubled to my very soul. But I can say this, coming here onto this blog and reading the recent comments about trust and abba have been a balm to my souls. God bless you all.

He’s beautiful ! He does take away the sins of the world!! Jesus I love you! Please increase my love for others! I want to feel love for others the way I love you ( so hard) !! God Bless everyone !!!!!!!!

  41. Saabon 28 Jun 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Dear Jean,
    How clearly you’ve echoed my sentiments!
    I too, have been battling “distractions” while not themselves sinful, have pulled me away a bit from our Lord. I say my rosary, but that little voice that says, come away from the computer and spend some time with me, read my Word instead of this television program is quickly ignored. My spiritual reading is fuzzy to me. I reread the same sentences two or three times, and my mind can’t seem to grasp anything.
    I too, was called to fast…did not answer. I feel numb. I have told the Lord today after the Supreme Court’s decision this is it, Jesus. I am tired. I know there is a purpose for all these crosses, but I don’t want them anymore, not right now. It is YOU who can see the end result, but I can’t, don’t want to. I
    am tired.

    The funny thing is these past few weeks, a sense of going to need to take a leap, a big one, where I would be required to get out of my comfort zone and risk much has been on my heart. In prayer I have been asking for courage, perseverance and fidelity unto death…Maybe, just maybe I am being pruned?

    I am a His feet, this I know…I am simply too tired, angry and discouraged to look up.

  42. reenion 28 Jun 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I know how you feel Jean. It seems we pray and pray and pray and expect a certain way for our prayers to be answered and when they aren’t, that feeling of anxiety and being lost sets in. So many focused prayers for Justice Kennedy, who knew that we should have lifted more for Justice Roberts! Kennedy actually wrote the great dissent. Now more than ever God is calling all of us to a great trust that He will always bring the greater good out of everything. Maybe it will take this ruling to wake up the lukewarm. Maybe some of us will have to go to prison or die for our faith but whatever comes, God is in control and will bring the greater good. I don’t know about many of you, but I feel like God has put suffering in my path right now and the only thing that gets me through the day is that I get to offer that suffering up to Him for the salvation of the souls He has put me in charge of . Peace be with You all. Come Holy Spirit, infuse Your gifts upon all of us and burn Your Divine Flame of Love in all hearts!

  43. christmas carol from cantonon 28 Jun 2012 at 4:31 pm

    To all who are downtrodden and depressed:

    When I feel worn and dragged out and unable to pray I sing songs of praise and worship either with my audio tapes or alone. I also say the Divine Praise aloud and even add my own praises. I find that songs and prayers of praise lift up the soul. I also try not to “worry” about the people in my life who seem to be on the wrong track. I say this little prayer:

    Almighty God in Whom the entire universe is contained,
    Contained Himself in the womb of a woman for nine months.
    And because we cannot separate the Trinity, we can say that she carried the entire Godhead within her. Just imagine being in Adoration 24/7 for nine months! And then I take the people who need help and place them in the spiritual womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary and ask her to guide and guard; nourish and nurture; comfort and console them eventually birthing them into eternal life when the time comes.
    Our Lord and Our Lady want our families and friends in the Kingdom even more than we do. So as Padre Pio says, “Pray and don’t worry.”
    It is at the last moment of their lives right before they meet the Lord that they can say “I love you and I am sorry.” This is precisely the moment that all of our Rosaries and Chaplets and Masses, etc. “kick in”. What a burden is released from our souls and hearts.

    AMEN, Jean. Your words are filled with Truth. It is impossible for us to even begin to fathom how supernatural Joy and Peace could fill our hearts and minds to the degree that we would be taken away by force to a place (ie. prison) and yet somehow remain there in the Knowledge that God is holding us near His Heart. What more fitting reading now than Acts of the Apostles? That Perfect Love would truly cast away all Fear. That sitting in a darkened room as a prisoner, we could be filled with the Light of Christ, our lamps filled with God’s Grace, shining brightly upon those around us…singing the very hymn of praise that Carol S posted…The Song of the Lamb that is in the Book of Revelation!
    Impossible to fathom…yet… it is True. Some will survive in hiding, some will be martyred, some will be imprisoned. Those in prison will baptise and witness to Christ before brothers and sisters who do not yet know Him, each according to the Perfect Providence of the Blessed Trinity and each receiving “taylor-made” graces according to our particular needs.
    Today, right now, we can begin to “witness” to those around us with greater Holy Boldness. It is essential to “speak” now to those souls who do not yet know Jesus Christ, perhaps not with words, mind you…but with our love, our peace and our joy… and with the Cross of Christ hanging around our necks. In France, in many work places, one would be asked to take off the cross …in schools or hospitals or public offices. But a person like myself living in the world has no one to forbid me from wearing a visible cross of saint Benedict around my neck. Yes it may draw looks of disdain from time to time…but every once in a while, the sign of the cross, coupled with a warm smile in the grocery store , can just maybe change a heart. Even if we do not wear a religious habit, the outward sign of the Cross can bear fruitful witness if it is worn with joyful love. Wearing the Cross has opened conversations on many occasions, as the person begins to speak because of the sign…and in conclusion one can say : “I will pray for you”. No one refuses the good will of prayer. Yes. they will know we are Christians by our Love…and by the Sign of the Cross that we bear around our necks….

    Jean, Breathe… Breathe in the Breath of Life!

    This video is for you and all of us, battle-fatigued soldiers…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T281lL_6e44

    Supreme Court Justice John Roberts-a devout Catholic- was the swing vote. He had to vote his conscience and he did so with grief, according to others who saw his unusually saddened face. But God chose him to be in this position at this time-period in history; so the final chapter is not fully written. When I heard that Chief Justice Roberts was the swing vote and that Justice Kennedy said that Obamacare was completely unconstitutional, I knew that St. Hannibal and all of the Celestial Court had helped to change Justice Kennedy’s heart.

    So now we need to watch how God will work. I know that God has a plan, as I so often say, & we just don’t know what it is — and neither does His “hairy legged” adversary!

    JESUS, WE TRUST IN YOU!!!

    This is a brief synopsis of the report.

  46. Mary Thereseon 28 Jun 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Well before anyone knew it would ever occur, the Supreme Court Decision was mentioned here: http://www.locutions.org/2011/11/the-coming-supreme-court-decision/

    Justice Kennedy may say much more… And Justice Roberts has said that part of Obamacare is constitutional and part is not…

  47. Sr Lorraineon 28 Jun 2012 at 6:55 pm

    I too was disheartened today by the Supreme Court decision. But there is a silver lining in that the way Roberts upheld it was by clearly setting limits to the power of Congress to use the Commerce Clause to force people to buy something. Now that is clearly recognized as unconstitutional, so it will make it much more difficult for Congress to pass such bad legislation in the future. That is why Roberts treated it as a tax (unfortunately). But interestingly, it does reveal the lies that were told by those who supported the bill and kept insisting it wasn’t a tax. In that regard, the message from the locution site is interesting in that the decision has exposed that lie at least.

  48. Mon 28 Jun 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Jean and all – I feel so comforted by your words here. It’s as if I had written them myself. I have felt the call to prayer and fasting and have put my busy schedule (and the occasional TV show) ahead of those calls in the last month or so. The devil has kept me so busy that I lost an opportunity to pray for what I took for granted – that Obamacare would be struck down.

    I haven’t read the opinion so I can’t comment on Justice Roberts just yet – only to say that his siding with the clear and activist Left is a shock to so many (even the Left!!).

    I thank you all for your comments. It is better for us to read each other’s comforting words than the news right now. I find it soooo depressing! Jesus, come soon~!!

  49. Kathy AEon 28 Jun 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Jean, Saab, Reeni, I think we have all been where you are. Let me share something that I posted on my website March a year ago:
    ***

    PERSEVERING IN PRAYER
     Posted by livingchrist on March 24, 2011 at 12:55 AM

    Reading on Pelianito’s Journal Blog tonight, I picked up a stunning quotation from St. Pio [Padre Pio], at least it was stunning to me:    
          “In the spiritual life he who does not advance goes backward. It happens as with a boat which always must go ahead. If it stands still the wind blows it back. FIX THE TIME, THE LENGTH OF YOUR MEDITATION, AND DO NOT RISE FROM YOUR PLACE UNTIL YOU HAVE FINISHED EVEN AT THE COST OF BEING CRUCIFIED.”
    – Saint Pio of Pietrelcina 
                 This caught my eye.; precisely because Satan hates for us to pray, prayer is often a trial.  The time may drag, we feel dry and unresponsive, emotions are flat.  We may even feel at times that we are being insincere because we feel little or nothing.  NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE TRUTH.  One thing I have learned in the last few months is that what we FEEL counts for little.  Remember in the Garden of Gethsemene Jesus prayed,  “Not what I will, but what You will.”  Prayer is not about about feeling, but about willing.  It is an act of the will. If we mean what we say, we don’t have to be emotional about it, but simply mean it . 
                 I used to wonder, how can I know if I’m willing something?  Think about this.  How do you know you’re willing to wash the dishes?  WASH THEM.  It is in the DOING that the will acts.  For this reason, Padre Pio’s words meant so much to me:  Fix the time, the length of your meditation, and do not rise from your place until you have finished even at the cost of being crucified.”   Act.   Commit yourself to the action and complete it EVEN AT THE COST OF BEING CRUCIFIED.  You don’t have to enjoy it or feel good about it; just do it. 
               God is good.  If you are faithful to your prayer time and are sincere, when the time is right and acceptable, God will give you the consolations you need to go on.  And if you are able to go on without the consolations, so much the better.  The needs of the world are astonishing in these times, and so few people are willing to pray as God needs us too. 
                Be encouraged.  Be faithful–fix the time and do not rise till you are finished!

    My American brothers and sisters… my heart is broken for you right now. It’s not much better up here, though, trust me. It’s pride week (why does it always have to start on a Sunday???) and I can’t remember there ever being more support for it. We Christians are assaulted by persecutors who accuse us of persecuting, of being “intolerant.”

    I, too, have been fatigued by the battle but I find that three things have helped: begging God for aid and strength, St. Faustina’s diary, and a book Peli recommended, “The Fulfillment of All Desire.”

    I’ve noticed that St. Faustina strove to make everything a prayer. She basically prayed 24/7. It seems exhausting at first, but one can get used to it. I think even just saying, “Jesus!” lets Him know you’re thinking of Him and want Him present with you.

    One more thing that’s been on my mind… I tend to tell people, “I’m praying for you!” but never actually formally sit and pray, just sort of hope that by saying that sentence, God takes notice. I think I need to make more of an effort to, at the end of the day (or, better yet, in that moment, since I’m so forgetful), just say something like, “Lord, I offer to You all those people I promised I’d keep in my prayers to You. Please let Your Holy Will be done in them and let them draw closer to You.”

    MT, I’ve been reading more of those Locutions.org messages and I don’t feel very “off” about them. I like the simple language and explanations Mary uses. I just wish they would post them faster, hee hee!

  51. Siobhanon 29 Jun 2012 at 6:40 am

    Jean & Saab – I too get weary of the struggle. I’m tired of seeing the advancement of evil, the indifference and mockery of my love ones, the ignorance of my co-workers, the crumbling of all standards and just good common sense, despite all of my prayers and for many, many years. But recently, I was thinking about all of this and the Holy Spirit reminded me that “what we are sowing in tears, we will reap with joy.” It was a needed reassurance of the impending victory. Now the thing I most suffer with is impatience and anger – waiting and wanting the Lord to act. I just wish we could fast forward to the wonderful outcome and not have to go through the purifying suffering and the terrible loss of so many souls. Yes, He’s in control, and is delaying because He is responding to our prayers to save the people we’re offering up to Him. It’s all in God’s timing. But again, sometimes I think my heart cannot take much more.

  52. pelianitoon 29 Jun 2012 at 7:23 am

    Thanks KAE. That is a very helpful reminder. I just want to add that it is a good idea to fix the time when you know there will be few natural interruptions. For instance if you have small children, you almost have to pray before they are up or after they are down for the night. Morning is a good time. The phone is not ringing and the house is quiet. May God grant us the strength and grace to persevere.

  53. June1on 29 Jun 2012 at 7:25 am

    Wow! Let’s pray for Colorado and anywhere else that’s in that situation: http://www.wjpbr.com/blmmrose.html

  54. pelianitoon 29 Jun 2012 at 7:36 am

    As an outsider (Canadian) looking in, one thing keeps coming back to me over all this political wrangling: “My Kingdom is not of this world.” I think time has proven (and my own country is no exception) that whether the leaders are Republican, Democrat, Catholic, atheist, or any other stripe the powers of this world are in control of the high places. We need to look at what Jesus did. Did he try to convert everyone? Did he say everyone had to believe as he taught? Did he try to set up his kingdom on earth? No. He said, “I love you. Follow me.” And he gave people the freedom even to reject him.

    What I see in your country is a lot of anger. Anger can only lead to rebellion and the devil wants rebellion. I am not sure what the answer is, but I know in my heart it does not rest in political systems, but in the total conversion of the human race. If you want the kingdom to reign on earth, do not shrug off your prayers. You do not know what even one word uttered in love of God is capable of.

    Jesus said: “Go and make disciples of every nation.” A disciple is formed through prayer and the witness of a life lived in charity and peace, with a timely word here and there when a heart is ready. I thank you for your witness on this blog dear friends. You mean so much to me! We are blessed!

  55. Danielleon 29 Jun 2012 at 7:57 am

    Peli, Kathy AE, June 1, Siobhan and the rest of the family: Praise God!! Especially in the midst of controversy. In your ‘First World’ countries lies a great deal of trouble – in our small nations, the same occurs here, and is probably a little more intense because of the fact that there are so many people of varying (conflicting) beliefs living on a piece of island. So, as it stands, right now we have a Spiritual battle in Trinidad (& Tobago) that I KNOW is because of the HINDUISM versus Christianity. It is serious, as the government is trying to seep its primarily Hindu tentacles in the family, education system and other systems.

    On another note: I am discerning with a great deal of clarity that the fires and heatwave that the US is going are in NO WAY ‘coincidental’, but are in fact tightly associated with the message revealed to you, Peli. I can tell that a great deal more ‘heat’ will take place!!

    One more thing: Germany has made circumcision a CRIME – any thoughts??

    God bless you!!

  56. Kathyon 29 Jun 2012 at 8:05 am

    June1,

    Your posts are so wonderfully honest and open. Thank you so much. Regarding we who are Americans of the USA…don’t worry and please don’t be sad. I fully believe that God is very much at work to continue waking people up and enabling them to begin to see the truth. We will simply persevere in our thanks to God for what He is doing and I will continue to make this request of the dear Blessed Mother: “O Blessed Virgin, Mother of the Savior, scatter the forces of evil so they are not engrossed in darkness but can come to light.” (I think someone in the Peli Family originally posted this and I have loved it ever since.) I SEE this prayer being answered constantly.

    ;-)

  57. Kathyon 29 Jun 2012 at 8:20 am

    One more thing: I wanted to share this website , Catholic Spiritual Direction, with you. From what I have seen so far (in the last few months), this seems to be an excellent destination for further growth and enrichment.

  58. reenion 29 Jun 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Friends, I am drawn more than ever to praying Psalms at this time. It keeps coming to my heart how often David would pray, “How long Lord”? ……..however, it seems praying psalms always ends in turning everything over to God’s Providence. It is so difficult to see God’s Will at this time knowing so many good people are praying for one outcome and seeing evil flourish all around us. God’s Providence put His Only begotten Son on a cross, how can we begin to understand God’s Will, we can only ask to Trust in His Divine Will. I pray for that trust for all of us as we all lay our sorrowful hearts at the foot of the cross along with Our Sorrowful Mother. “Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls”!

  59. lizon 29 Jun 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Dear Pelianito. This is a request for urgent prayer for my brother Patrick who tried to commit suicide this morning. The RCMP are right now trying to get him out of his truck at my older brother’s farm. He has a gun with him in his truck.
    Thankyou and God Bless.
    Liz.

  60. pelianitoon 29 Jun 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Liz I call upon St. Michael and the holy Guardian Angels, Mary, Joseph, St. Dominic (who just popped into my mind as I typed), and all the holy angels and saints to come to his aid. Jesus we trust in you. Abba!

  61. Lynnon 29 Jun 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Peli, your comment regarding Jesus’ statement ” My kingdom is not of this world” so totally rang true to me. Anger and rebellion and fighting and accusing cannot ever bring the results we want. Only peace in our hearts, prayer, love for each other , and trust in God can bring us in union with God’ s plan.

    I understand the weariness in battle. I too deal with it . When I feel myself getting anxious and depressed I pray the Name Jesus and I try to recall to my mind the imminent coming of the Lord’s warning (illumination). This is going to give the world a.big leg up in the battle with evil. Not everyone will convert but I believe those we pray for will . Many will convert and its going to be a.glorious thing to live and see.

    I’ve been hit hard this summer with the temptation against prayer. Like MT said the prayers of praise and psalms are helpful. We are little but our God is big and mighty and good and merciful. I literally have two souls in my immediate family (husband and son) who are on the brink of hell for whom I pray and pray for. I will tell you, it seems to.make things worse not better. The night I attended a public novena for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the worst and most hurtful events took place with my husband taking off with my two sons for three days. I was worried sick but Jesus comforted me. So I have had to learn to focus on God’s greatness and His power and not my inadequate efforts. When I focus on me, I want to give up . But this is what the devil wants me to do. So my natural spunk at that point kicks in (along with grace of the Holy Spirit) and I keep going.

    We are being tempted to discouragement friends so DON’T give up. I tell myself Jesus is more concerned for.souls and all that is taking place in our world than we are. He’s promising “the dew laden breeze” for us who trust in Him implicitly here in Peli’s message. This is such a precious promise and I am coming to realize He is good on those promises to pull us through the worst of times. Despite our weary hearts and wounds and black eyes, we really are blessed to be in our Lord’s army. Blessings of peace to each heart and soul here.

  62. Jeanon 29 Jun 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Reeni, I was just saying those exact words the other day: “How long Lord”? And my favorite song Siobhan has these lyrics “we go out sowing in tears, but come back laughing”. I guess God is reminding me that He is listening. Thank you all for your thoughts and words because it really has made my day. I think I need to follow the advise of Saint Padre Pio and establish my prayer time and stick to it. Thanks to all who responded.

  63. Guyon 29 Jun 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Consider also that it is a form of pride to reject God’s mercy, to think our sins are way too bad for his forgiveness, to doubt that we are forgiven. If God says he will forgive us through the sacrament, HE WILL. It is done. Be at peace.

    (I’m not sure why I wrote that, but I just felt called to.)

    Thanks Peli

    Liz i place Patrick in Adoration today.
    Re America. It is all the drama that must unfold. TO me, America is a window to the rest of the world and the spritual battle. The fires are all over the world but so obvious in America.
    i have found reading http://www.locutions.org help me to understand so much. Our Lady is so simple and honest and yet so much depth.
    We are truly in the time of individual purification, group purification……whether it be family, nations, the globe as a whole. Only when we are deeply cleansed and self has died, can we we fully open to GOD. ONly when we are scoured out can we truly fully commit to GOD. COMMIT. ……100 percent.
    The anger, frustration, confusion, hurt …………has to come out but be handed over to Jesus to heal. He is the only One Who can heal our brokenness. So on all levels so much is happening.
    God will use all for His good. THis is the restoration process we are going through. painful! but necessary.
    i believe the Lord is healing all to bring the family of God back to God. we are seeing little trickles ……..eg the Anglicans turning towards the Catholic Church. Gradually the family is coming back.
    So we truly are being called to be other Christs and allow Him to use our little offerings for the grace to flow. The supernatural LIFE of CHRISTis to flow to all. THe more we allow Him to cleanse us the more of a channel we can be and so we are truly in an amazing time in history.
    How blessed we are to be given the channels of Mark Mallett, Pelianito. I thank them for being so open and willing to do His Will. We are all being asked to be channels in our little areas of those around us.
    We are IN the era of the Third Fiat, the era of the Holy Spirit and so it is the time of sanctification. The Sun is rising and HOPE abounds. We are In the time of the growth of the period of Divine Will where the Divine Will will reign. It is the death of the old kingdom of the human will. From the mustard seed of Luisa is the growing D.W. Kingdom and so Babylon is falling.
    SO please Americans just keep focused on what God is doing and WILL do. We are all in the process of sanctification and soon we will ALL be shown the Truth and have a choice to make. At present the deception is so strong. Grace is abounding though and i really wish to thank all on this blog for their prayers for all of humanity. i am truly grateful for you all and read all your comments. You encourage each other all the time and this is so needed. Thank you to all.

    Kathy, I can’t believe it! I was on that website for the first time not two days ago!

    *pass out* :D

    Sometimes, the God-incidences are too much (no, they’re not; need more!)!

  66. Mary Thereseon 29 Jun 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Kathy,
    I was the one who posted the prayer, “O Blessed Virgin, Mother of the Savior, scatter the forces of evil so they are not engrossed in darkness but can come to light.” It is from the message below. I am so glad that you mentioned it, as I had really wanted to continually pray it and totally forgot about it! I think that this is what is going to happen with the outcome from the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare… I agree totally with your observations!

    http://www.locutions.org/2011/07/scattering-the-powers-of-darkness/

    June1, I feel as you do, I can’t wait for the new group of messages that Mosignor Esseff releases… He does it very regularly, after considering them for a time period… They are usually on the first day or so of the month and I think also half-way through the month.

  67. pelianitoon 29 Jun 2012 at 10:36 pm

    MT and Kathy, I pray this prayer every day. It is beautiful. Today as I prayed the rosary at adoration, I felt the Lord putting on me the “armor of light”. I feel right now that we are all to pray to be covered with the armor of light. Our Lady says in the locution above: “I will take a different approach, scattering them and making them vulnerable to the light. Yes, I say “vulnerable to the light” because their hearts are made for the light, just as is every human heart.” So by wearing armor of light we are able to participate in our Lady’s plan for those in darkness. Alleluia!

  69. micheleon 30 Jun 2012 at 5:40 am

    To all the Peli family
    I have only posted but a few times but am a daily gleaner of the wisdom that is posted here. This prayer to scatter evil so all can come to the light prompted me to step out and share a prayer that I say daily because its components parts are a culmination of prayers and wisdom that I have learned form you all. This prayer evolved over time and so I want to share the story.
    One reader a long time ago said she claims the baptismal promises over those she loves who are away from the faith. I loved this concept and it felt so reassuring to me that I began to do this each morning for my family. Then from another post, I also began including everyone on my “train” and claiming the baptismal promises over all who are on board the train. As I was praying this way, I was contemplating the problems we are having at our local pregnancy center. My job a year ago was to convert us from a resource center to a medical center so we could offer ultrasounds (ultrasounds are a huge component to guiding someone to truth about what is happening inside of them). Once we became “medical” I was disheartened that we weren’t reaching those in need. From here I started praying to God to give me the marketing plan. God clearly laid out that the battle: when it comes to reaching the abortion minded young lady no amount of texting apps, billboards or radio clips can compare with serious prayer. Then God took my prayer above and expanded it. It is not a rigid prayer, it gets said a little differently each day, but all the main components are below.
    I usually say this in the morning and before communion (in line on the way up). I always want this prayer to have lots of power so I have a practice of mentally inviting 7 favorite saints (Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Ann, St Catherine of Sienna, St Anthony and St. Pio, sometime Blessed Pope John Paul comes) to hold hands with me in a circle. I guess I figure the when 2 or more are gathered bible verse would get super charged with this line up. Then I start:
    Father God , today we bring before you all baptized souls and we stand here in the gap between good and evil, darkness and lies. We claim the baptismal promises over all of your children and we beg you to let our prayers create openings all around the earth where the light, love and the Truth of God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit reaches every soul. Lord, Let your light, love and transforming power reach every one of your children that darkness may dispelled that we (me and all other baptized )all may accept God and Jesus, that we see ourselves as you see us, that we would repent of our sins and accept the teaching of the Catholic church. Lord lead us to all Truth – Truth about ourselves, Truth about life. Shine on those contemplating abortion, lead them to places of truth, lead them to our pregnancy center and to places of truth around the world. Praise be to God. Lord we also make this same prayer for all who are not baptized. Shine on them. Illuminate their hearts and minds so they may know you. We claim the sacrifice made at Calvary and every day at church for all souls, we cover them in the precious blood of Jesus and pray that our prayers would create millions of openings in satan’s veil of lies that every soul would be reached and every soul would know the truth about you, themselves and about life. Lead any soul contemplating abortion to Truth and places of truth.
    Praise be to God. Come holy spirit, come holy spirit come holy spirit!!!!
    Feels like such a big prayer from little ole me – Thank you for letting me share with this family the prayer that you all helped teach me. God reminds me daily to say this and every time my skin tingles and my heart throbs and then I thank him for you all and ask him to bless all those in the forefront and those behind the scenes.
    Much love, Michele

    Lynn, that sounds awful! I’m praying for you and your family. Turn to St. Monica and St. Rita. I have found comfort in them, especially knowing that the conversions of their families took years but it did happen. Heaven was won for them. God heard the cries of these mothers and their unwavering faith paved the way. Never give up. Pray, pray, pray! Offer masses, novenas, rosaries, Eucharists for them. Even if things don’t look good in this life, at the moment of their deaths, it could be one of your prayers, one of your actions that literally saves them, and the Lord will make it known to them. :)

    I’m still reading St. Faustina’s diary and many times, it was just one prayer for a soul that brought it from darkness into light. Also, St. Therese’s first spiritual child was Pranzini, an unrepentant murderer. She made many sacrifices to save his soul and, literally at the last second, before they beheaded him, he kissed a crucifix. This one thing saved his soul! I couldn’t believe it when I heard about it. I think it had more to do, however, with St. Therese’s intention and love behind it. So, let us keep loving and entreating God. We can’t go wrong if we trust in His mercy. Jezu, ufam Tobie! :D

    I have found that when I am weakening, and know that I am in danger of not fasting, or not observing my usual prayer schedule etc etc, if I ask Our Lady to help me (to fast, pray etc) all is well. It’s amazing! I highly recommend it!

    This is the Hail Mary that I now use, from a website that was on the sidebar of Peli’s blog. My Rosaries are longer because of it, but it fits so well with the prayer, “O Blessed Virgin, Mother of the Savior, scatter the forces of evil so they are not engrossed in darkness but can come to light.”

    Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with You. Blessed are You among women and Blessed is the Fruit of Your Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners and flood the whole of humanity with Your Flame of Love. Amen.

    I think for many of us USA citizens who are feeling the pain of this weeks decision and are old enough to remember Roe vs Wade, this frightens us because we have seen in our nation the fruits of what bad law confirmed by our courts can do to a nation. People sat back during R vs W and did not do much about it at the time, so for the past almost 40 years a small remnant have faithfully prayed, paid witness at abortion clinics and demonstrated some holy boldness and lost friends and family on the way and still abortion is legal. So many did not bother to fight the good fight 40 years ago, so we are all paying the price for it today. The lukewarm will be spit out and it was our lukewarmness that allowed Roe vs Wade to exist for so long in our nation and not be overturned. We are now eathing the spoiled fruits. We need to all pray for unity in truth. The idea of a rebellion is frightening, but we cannot allow the apathy to continue or we will lose our freedoms. How I pray the Holy Spirit will come over our nation and illuminate every heart in truth. How I pray for a peacefilled conversion of our nation where Jesus Christ is truly King and Mother Mary, Our Queen. Lord, I place this sorrowful heart of mine at the foot of the cross united to Your Mother’s Sorrowful Heart…..

    Liz, how is Patrick. God help you all in such tragic circumstances.

    Abba ! help this family so dear to You.

    Marino Restepo speaks of this in his talks. Merciful Jesus looks after souls who are in such circumstances.

    Merciful Jesus, I trust in Thee.

    Very powerful prayer Michele! Praise be to God!

    Our Lady of Good Remedy! My brother Pat is safe and @ home.
    thankyou all for your prayers! You are in mine. Thankyou all the Saints, especially St. Faustina and St. Joseph!

  77. pelianitoon 30 Jun 2012 at 2:35 pm

    That is wonderful news Liz! May the saints and angels keep him in their care. Thanks be to God!

  78. Lynnon 30 Jun 2012 at 8:08 pm

    June 1, thank you for the reminder about st Monica and st Rita! Sometimes I forget the obvious. Also St Faustina is a good one for me to remember. I will keep praying and offering everything I can. Thanks for your kind prayers!

    Michele, I am writing down your prayer ! That is very deep and powerful.

    Liz I prayed to Mary for Patrick and I am so happy he came through alive. Praise God!

    MT, thank you for sharing your beautiful Hail Mary. I love that.

    On June 22 I began devotion to The drops of blood that Jesus shed on His way to Calvary – 2 Our Fathers, 2 Hail Mary’s, 2 Glory be’s daily. I already feel the power of this devotion.

    God bless to all.

  79. pelianitoon 30 Jun 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Lord have mercy! I hope this is all bluster but somehow I doubt it. Jesus we trust in you. Abba!

    In relation to that last article Peli, I saw an informative clip (back in April), which though focusing on the financial aspect of a potential war in the Middle East, does explain – also from a historical and religious perspective – why Iran is pursuing the nuclear option in that region. It’s at: http://agorafinancial.com/reports/OST/NewWar/vp/OST_NewWar_092611_vp.php?code=LOSTN408
    All we can do is follow Mary’s call to “Pray for peace, peace, peace” http://medjugorje.org/ May God have mercy on us all…

    Dear friends in the US, my friend Paul has given me much to ponder in his article for the newsletter of the Brothers and Sisters of Penance of St. Francis (BSP), regarding the current political climate in the world. You may read the article here if you wish. Scroll down to the column called “No Greater Love”.

    (FYI, just below his column is my own newsletter article with a photo taken in 2009. You all know me pretty well by now–you may as well know what I look like!)

    This Sunday morning(after not having visited the site for several weeks) I am overcome by these posts, especially since last Thursday. Yesterday I told the Lord “I might as well admit it. I’ve got battle fatigue.” The Supreme Court decision just seemed to be the straw on the camel’s back. My own family is so very far from God. I keep hoping for some small sign that God is getting through to them, but nothing. If anything, it’s worse. And I, like all of you, feel that impending “Day of Decision” coming in whatever form it will take. So Thursday seemed just to crown all the darkness that I see all around me. Peli’s message was timely indeed. I do trust Jesus. I know with Him all things are possible, but there are those bad moments when “battle fatigue” I guess is the best word for it. I told the Lord, “just don’t let me go AWOL. Don’t let me desert like the hirelings desert the sheep.”
    I love the prayer about asking for the graces of baptism over those who are in such need. Thanks for sharing it. thanks to all of you–it is such a shot in the arm to read these posts and to know none of us are alone in our various journeys. So many blessings do surround us–our courageous bishops, our young priests with such muscular faith, determined to restore the Church, like knights going into battle. How badly they need our prayers. So I better get over my battle fatigue, and start offering everything I’ve got to the Sacred Heart.
    Here’s a sonnet–I share in case it is useful or comforting to others going through this hard time.
    Gethsemane Prayer
    Dear Jesus there is so much pain around
    My heart constricts, my tears can never quench
    These new sorrows burned on thorny ground
    Where old sorrows smoke. How they wrench
    And pull my weary heart into such shapes
    Only You can recognize me, only You
    Can heal me. If I could I would escape
    The wreckage of my pain like hirelings do.
    And yet You ask me if I’ll drink the cup
    For You, as You drank at Gethsemane.
    Oh give me strength to take the chalice up
    And bear this cross a while to Calvary
    Lest I, like Simon, grumble at the the load,
    When from Cyrene he met You on the road.

  83. pelianitoon 01 Jul 2012 at 9:26 am

    Powerful sonnet Ann! Thanks for sharing it.

    The Lord knows we are weary. That is why he is giving us so many consolations and messages of encouragement. Let us not rely on our own failing strength, but on the strength and power of the Holy Spirit. Come Holy Spirit. May your dew-laden breeze renew the face of the earth.

    (I fixed the link to the BSP newsletter. Sorry about that.)

  84. Daveon 01 Jul 2012 at 11:10 am

    peli, will you be at the retreat? We live in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, and my wife will probably be coming. (I’ll be out of town.)

    Looking forward to finding out more about the BSP…

  85. pelianitoon 01 Jul 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Dave unfortunately I will not be at the retreat this year. I try to get there every other year as it is quite a distance from western Canada. I know you will meet many good souls there striving for holiness. May God guide you into his holy will.

  86. pelianitoon 01 Jul 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Friends there is an urgent prayer request from Stella on the prayers page. Lord Jesus, may the dew-laden breeze of the Holy Spirit be with this family.

  87. the phoenixon 01 Jul 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Taking so much encouragement from everyone’s words and praying for everyone’s needs here on the Peli blog. Wishing my neighbors to the North a Happy Canada Day!

  88. eamonnon 01 Jul 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Dear All,
    I made this “Life Offering” years ago and it has given me comfort that my loved ones will be saved and life’s trials and tribulations are not going to waste and I offer it for your consideration – see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7WUt-bZFM0 , it has the Imprimatur by the local Bishop in Hungary.for more info may I suggest googgling – ‘life Offering/Hungarian Nun. God Bless u all!!

  89. pelianitoon 01 Jul 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Phoenix thank you for your good wishes. May God grant every grace to all the countries of the world, most especially the grace of conversion. Jesus we trust in you!

  90. pelianitoon 01 Jul 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Eamonn, this is so beautiful and affirms the overriding message of this blog. Jesus and Mary, in your mercy use us as you wish to accomplish your designs upon the world. We offer our lives to you. Save souls!

  91. Lynnon 01 Jul 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Peli, your lovely spirit shines through your lovely eyes in that photo :)

    I am greatly reading through this newsletter. Thanks for sharing.

  92. annon 02 Jul 2012 at 6:15 am

    Eamon-thank you so much for this. It is a great blessing to be given these prayers and messages. They confirm what is here in Peli’s messages and for me personally, a confirmation of a direction I have been given in prayer, to trust Our Lord and our Holy Mother to dispense our offerings as They see fit and let go of our need to know how they are being used. What is so comforting is the promise about our loved ones. Again, thank you so very very much.

  93. Bob Klumpon 07 Jul 2012 at 11:04 am

    Peli, I would like to share with all that I experienced the ‘dew laden breeze of the Spirit’ about 35 years ago.

    This occurred during the darkest time of my life. I felt there was absolutely no one on earth to help me with my problem. I woke up one night with this incredibly depressed feeling, and knowing I could not go back to sleep went down the the kitchen and turned on the light and just sat there. Suddenly the tears came in a flood and in the midst of this (I am ashamed to say I was not even thinking of God at the time) I heard in my heart the words of Peter, “Lord, to whom else shall we turn.” I cried out, ” Lord help me.” It was then the dew laden Spirit engulfed me. I felt this breeze over the top of my head, it penetrated thru my head and filled my chest cavity. It was so soothing, refreshing and comforting. I KNEW I was touched by God. I was not given any answers to my problem at that time, but in time things did work out. HOWEVER, not the way I imagined! (funny, as I related this experience to friends at the time, I referred to what I felt as a ‘breeze’)

  94. pelianitoon 07 Jul 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Bob that is wonderful! Our God is an awesome God and he is as near to us as our own breath!
