Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

God is my Friend, He calls me Friend!

God is Holy. He is my friend and He loves me. How blessed am I? How blessed are we? God is smiling on each one of us and He has got a lot of blessings in store for each one of us. He is waiting for us to believe, for when we believe and have total faith in God, it is only then that God will be able to pour out all His blessings on each one of us.

When we get down on our knees and pray, we must believe that Christ Jesus is with us and He does have a lot of special blessings for each of us. When we believe, we receive. Christ Jesus said, ‘If you have faith as big as a grain of a mustard see, when you say to the mountain, move, it will move.’ What are the mountains in each of our lives. What is blocking us from being happy and contented. If we have faith, we could say to these mountains or problems in our lives and it will move and go away. But we must trust in Our Friend Jesus Christ who is Our Lord and Saviour.

At the sound of God’s name, Angels will bow because God is great and majestic. So what is stopping us from believing in God’s great majesty. We must believe in God’s greatness and we must also join the angels and bow with them at the sound of God’s name. There is no one like our God and we must sing His praise Him. We must hold onto our God. We must never let Him leave us because of our sin. We must always repent of our sin and approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We must keep our whole selves clean and spotless – our mind, soul and body. If we stay near Our God, He will give us all the grace that we need to be pure and clean.

We must call out to His Holy spirit and His spirit will come and make us new. Christ Jesus is our friend. He calls us His friend. How privileged we are to be friends with a God who created this whole wide world. Who created the stars and the planets – who created mankind – you and me and put within us a soul where He dwells. We are the temples of the Holy Spirit, so as we walk the streets, the shopping Malls, the market places, to our work places, among our communities, let us take Christ Jesus with us. We are walking tabernacles.  He will transform those around us and those whom we meet. We must believe! Only faith can make us new.

Let us sing and be happy that we are friends of God and let us be aware that He calls us friends. My dear friends put on some spiritual music – sing and dance to this music and cry out to the Lord and thank Him for being our friend and for calling us His friends. We will always be His friend, so do not doubt in His love and in His friendship.

When we love someone or when we see our children, we see the greatness of God in them. So we must realise that God loves each one of us and He sees greatness in each one of us. The word of God says that Perfect fear casts out all fear. So my dear people, be strong and believe in Christ Jesus because He is our friend and He believes in us. There is victory in Christ Jesus because He was victorious when He rose from the dead.

I would also like to remind each one of you that we have been anointed at our Baptism and we belong to Him. We have been anointed to do good. We must be a blessing to our families, our neighbours, our parish and all those around us. We must give those whom we meet a smile which would transform their lives. Christ would reach out to those we smile at and He would bless them and bring Joy into their lives.

I would like to end with this statement – GOD IS OUR FRIEND AND HE CALLS US HIS FRIENDS. So, my dear people. Be happy and joyous, for happiness and joy is contagious. Let us be Contagious People for Christ Jesus! God is our friend. God calls us His friends, so let us be friends to those who have no friends! God bless you and May you be a blessing to others!

The Catholic Mass (1) by Florence D’Costa

The Mass is the pinnacle of prayer.  Mass is a Celebration where we celebrate Christ.   Christ Jesus died only once on Calvary.  At every Mass we go into time and we are present at Calvary.  We are there when Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was betrayed, tormented, tortured and crucified.  He died for you and for me.  He died for the whole world and for all people.  If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, then Salvation is ours for free.  The Mass is a powerful weapon against Satan and his wiles.    The whole of heaven is present during Mass with all the angels and saints.  At Mass, there are readings and the gospel – The Liturgy of the Word.  We have the prayers of the faithful.  At the Offertory, the priest offers the whole congregation to God – as we are, including our sinfulness.  Liturgy of the Eucharist – When we receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion, God, the Father, blesses us and a lot of graces is given to us so that we can continue to live for Christ and for what He stands for.  At Holy Communion, we receive Jesus Christ Himself.  Let us pray that Christ whom we receive in Holy Communion will make us a new creation and will make us more and more like Him.  I will continue to write about the Mass as and when I feel prompted by the Holy Spirit.

Yes, I will be STILL and KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOD!   Yes, Lord Jesus Christ when our lives are full of turmoils and when we are tossed about with problems, we will be still and in our stillness, we will find you.  For in you there is comfort, peace and joy.  During this Lenten season help us Lord to look inward and to journey with you and with others who need us.  We LOVE YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST!  FOR WITHOUT YOU, THERE IS NO LIFE IN US.

Yes, Lord, remember Your People!

Yes, Lord, we your people surrender ourselves to you.  We surrender all that we have and all that we are.   We come to you O Lord in our nothingness and we know and believe Lord that you are our everything and with you all things are possible.  We come to you Lord for your Love and Protection.  Without You we are nothing.  We give you all our plans.  If it is your Holy Will, then you help us to accomplish our plans because you are very much in our plan.  Whatever, we plan O Lord, we only do it to promote you and to make you known and loved by all. We Love You O Lord with every fibre of our being.  Thank Lord Jesus Christ for loving us.

Raise Jesus High for the World to See!

Yes, raise Jesus High for the world to see.  When we exalt Christ and put Him high on a pedestal, all eyes would be on Him because he would be there for all to see.  Some would look upon him out of curiosity, some with indifference, some may not even behold his face but there are many who would see him, would love him and many would go out to him for healing, comfort, restoration and many would be saved.   We, the baptised have received a MISSION when we became the Children of God.  So, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus – Lift Jesus Christ High for the world to see and more importantly let us remember that there was a time that someone in our lives did lift Jesus Christ high so that we were able to see Him so closely that He drew us unto Himself.  Amen! and Amen!

Doing God’s Holy Will

Not very many people know how important it is to believe in God and further more how important it is to do what He wants us to do.  Well, let us pray for people to be enlightened by the Holy Spirit.  This is an old video of mine but the Holy Spirit is prompting me to present this video once again.  All I am being is OBEDIENT.

We come into His Presence

It is important to first of all to ask God to give us a gift of prayer. For, to long to pray is to be in love with your God

To pray is to come into the presence of God. If only we could imagine what it means to come into God’s Presence. For God to want us to come into His Presence is such a great invitation. It is a great privilege. Well, God’s love for us is so great that His Love for us, draws us to Himself. His Love is magnetic and it continually draws us to Himself.

It is when we surrender to Him, that we develop a longing and a thirst to be in His Presence. So, God is asking us to totally surrender to him.

Now, each one of us have the KEY to enter into God’s Presence and the KEY is Surrender. When we surrender to Him, He then takes us into His Presence and gradually makes us pure and holy.

Thy Word is a Lamp Unto my Feet – Lyrics

The Word of God guides us and teaches us Shows us the path that God wants us to take.  We need to pray and discern God’s Holy Will.  Sometimes, we might think that what we are doing is what God wants us to do.  It is important for each of the faithful to sit quietly at the  Feet of Jesus.  Sit before the Blessed Sacrament, spend some quiet time with Him every day.  When you learn to sit quietly at His Feet, Read the Word of God, you will find that Jesus Christ will speak to you through His Words.  God speaks to us through Scripture and it is extremely important for us to meditate on His Word.  Become One with Him through His Word and through the Presence of the Blessed Sacrament and you can be sure that the Holy Spirit of God will lead you.
