    Father, we pray for a cloak of protection for our leaders Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Guide them, and help them guide us, through the perilous waters that face our country and the world. We pray that those brave souls who assist them will be protected and kept from harm. May those who seek to harm them be met with a refusal to quit by Your forces. Surround our leaders with Your angels. Help their families, for their courage and dedication is important to them and to us in these perilous times. Amen

    WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - According to reports circulating on social media, a group of witches are planning a mass witchcraft spell to curse President Trump and get him "removed from office." The curse will also extend "to all those who abet him." The spell is set to take place February 24 at midnight, and is supposed to continue at "midnight on every waning crescent moon until he is removed from office." A Facebook page has been created for participants to offer input — although Christians are also leaving comments promoting "the power of Jesus" to counteract their efforts. The proclaimed binding...

    With President Donald Trump and the first Lady bringing God and the Lord’s Prayer back into the mainstream, Satanists and self-proclaimed witches are up in arms. Witches around the globe are launching a campaign to cast a ‘binding spell’ on President Trump beginning February 24. The spell is to begin February 24th (Midnight, Friday evening) and to be repeated on every “waning crescent moon,” so roughly once a month. Beyond February 24th, the following dates are given: “March 26th; April 24th; May 23rd; June 21st (especially important as it is the summer solstice); July 21st; August 19th; etc.” Let us...

A psalm. 1 My God, whom I praise,     do not remain silent, 2 for people who are wicked and deceitful     have opened their mouths against me;     they have spoken against me with lying tongues. 3 With words of hatred they surround me;     they attack me without cause. 4 In return for my friendship they accuse me,     but I am a man of prayer. 5 They repay me evil for good,     and hatred for my friendship. 6 Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy;     let...

    Let us keep our eyes fixed on... Jesus, the leader and perfecter of our faith. (Heb 12:2) This verse from the Letter to the Hebrews has become one of my favorites, for it summarizes so concisely the purpose of our faith, that is, to look at Jesus, to learn from him, and to try to be more like him every day. I was reminded of this truth again recently when I came across something Pope Francis said in one of his homilies at the end of the Christmas Season: “Jesus Christ manifested himself; we are invited to know him, to...

    The word of God gives life. Notice in Proverbs 4:22 the scripture says the word of God is life. And that life will drive any and all death out of your body. Notice, in Romans 4:19 it says that Abraham considered not the deadness of his body nor the deadness of Sarahs womb. Notice, they both had a condition in their flesh that the scripture calls death. All forms of death is simply the absence of life. Your flesh has no life in itself. The only life in your flesh is the life your spirit feeds into it. In Proverbs...

    In August of 2015 my 1st grandson Skylar Jason was born. Four very short weeks later he passed away from SIDS. At the funeral my son recounted how he and my daughter-in-law danced alone in the morning light. And he promised that they he would dance with his wife again. This morning at about dawn we got a call from him to say that he has kept his promise, and that they were dancing in the dawn light again. I am equal parts overjoyed and terrified. I ask for two prayer requests, first one of thanksgiving. This is truly our...

    Lest the title of this post confuse you, be confused no more. But prepare. Prepare for the Cross which you, dear Catholic, are about to be nailed to. Carry it and use it to strengthen yourself for the fight of our life that is to come sooner than you think. Gosh, how incredible that we get to live this. We were born for this! We heard a few weeks ago that Bergoglio had ordered a review of Liturgiam Authenticum.  First, a little background is in order. Liturgiam Authenticum was an order of Pope John Paul II and concerned the translations of...

    If you are suffering from some sickness in your body I want to encourage you that there is healing. I want to look at a scripture that I have had personal experiences with. Proverbs 4:20-23 says, My son attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. That word health is translated medicine, remedy,...
