Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

We are the Militant Church – Can we be Soldiers for Christ?

I give below a few points that I think are important to implement in our daily lives  :

  1. Do we remember when we wake up in the morning to say Our Morning offering and thank God for the gift of a new and wonderful day filled with blessings that most times we are not able to see or recognise?
  2. Do we remember to count our blessings?
  3. Are we happy to bless those around us sincerely and genuinely?
  4. Do we pray 24 x 7, meaning that whatever we do, we do for the glory of God – ofcourse, this is besides daily Mass, personal prayer and intercessory prayer.

I Quote from my assistant priest’s sunday homily”

“Many people in our society these days dabble with things like Wicca, neopaganism, New Age, White and Black Magic, Spiritism, Thesophy and even Satanism.  Horoscope watching, Ouija boards, palm reading, tea leaves, crystals……

The church consistently and tirelessly warns all of her children against experimenting with occult practices.” unquote.

It is very important for us to begin afresh :

  • To be wise and to keep away from dabbling with the above.  These practices are not of the Lord.  Satan is very suttle.  He would make us think that participating in all these things are just for either entertainment, curiosity or even out of dire necessity.  Once people are drawn to these sort of occult activities, it is very hard to get out of.  Once Satan gets his hold on a particular individual, he takes possession and from then on causes the person a lot of misery.
  • If an individual does fall into this trap, they should go for confession and also, they would need to get rid of any of articles or objects that they have kept in their home or on their person.  More importantly, they should get a priest to come over home and pray a blessing on the home and on the family members.
  • This individual or individuals would have to make a commitment to stay close to Christ Jesus by attending daily mass if possible, reading comforting scripture passages and psalms and pray together as a family.
  • They should try their best to keep away from any kind of vice such an drinking to get drunk, gambling, pornography, any kind of lustful behaviour in thought, word or deed.
  • The Blood of Christ Jesus is very powerful and these individuals should cover themselves with the precious blood of Jesus Christ for protection.
  • Personal prayer is very important and also we need to pray for all those who are dabbling with the occult in Melbourne, the whole of Australia and all over the world.

VERY IMPORTANT –  FAMILY PRAYER IS VERY IMPORTANT.  WHEN WE PRAY AS A FAMILY, THE HOLY FAMILY WILL COME AND DWELL IN OUR MIDST BUT EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY SHOULD CO-OPERATE WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH GOD. THESE INDIVIDUALS COULD ALSO JOIN ANY CATHOLIC PRAYER GROUP IN THEIR PARISH AND HAVE PRAYER AND FELLOWSHIP.
