Scandal

First Friday Conference October 2017

Scandal is mentioned in the Gospel for the feast of the Guardian Angels and Our Lord warns of the punishments for it.  Here is a detailed explanation of this sin against charity and how we can avoid it.  We also are reminded about the beauty and love of the angels.  Finally, we learn the essence of the Little Flowers way of “spiritual childhood” which is a development of the beatitude “Blessed are the poor in spirit”.

Spirits By Nature, Messengers By Office

Dedication of St. Michael The Archangel 2017

Angels are God’s gift of love to us and we should never scandalize the young whose angels always behold the face of God.  Angels are created spirits with understanding and a free will who often function as messengers from God to us.  St. Michael’s church was dedicated today and he is the leader of the angels.  Our immortal soul is so important that we each receive a guardian angel to protect us in life and lead us to heaven.  Pray to St. Michael using his prayer to be victorious in our daily battles and ask our guardian angels help in all things – even the little things.

The Ascension Makes Us Happy

Ascension Thursday 2017

We learn several things on this feastday.  The dogma that Christ returned to heaven on Ascension Thursday was revealed by the angels who told the apostles.  Among Our Lord’s last words were His instructions not to worry about the future because the Father in His Providence will take care of everything and to go forth and preach the Gospel.  Most importantly, today heaven became our home because Our Savior, the Head of the Mystical Body of which we are members, is there preparing a place for us.

With the battle cry “Who is like unto God?” the great archangel, St. Michael, defended the honor of God and won forever his name.  This ancient feast recalls the dedications of a couple of famous churches where St. Michael is venerated.  It also celebrates all the heavenly spirits who lead us in worship and prayer while watching over the whole created cosmos and each of us.  Ask for the intercession of St. Michael and all the angels that we become devout and one day see them in heaven.
