Friends of the Rosary: Can we serve Jesus Christ and the material world we are in at the same time? In today's Sunday's reading (Lk 16:1-13), Our Lord explained to his disciples through a parable, “No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon." In the silence of our hearts, we might have set our goals in life. When we haven't, we behave like the waves of the sea, that go everywhere. We act then erratically, becoming unhappy. Most people do not choose God. They decide to enjoy life, concentrating on money, power, honors, or pleasures. Only a minority rejects turning their back on God, pursuing a life of virtues. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them. Our free will poses the fundamental question: do we serve Jesus and Mary or do we serve everything else? Ave Maria!

We are all filled with something…. It is either the cares and concerns of the world, or the love, peace and light of Jesus. It can't be both. Our Lord tells us over and over in His Word that the choices we make have consequences in our earthly lives, in the lives of others, and in the life everlasting. Jesus knows that we have challenges in this world. Yet, He invites us to allow Him to fill our cups (our innermost being) to overflowing with His presence –  that is where we will find rest for our souls and the courage to walk wisely in obedience to His will.

Today, Rusanne Carole looks at how women can overcome adversities and challenges we may face in today's world and to look forward and not back, for God has a good plan for all of us! We must adorn the armour of God and trust His plan. **** Welcome to God's Grace, a Women World Leaders podcast. I am your host, Rusanne Carol. Born in Louisiana and now living in Australia. I'm a single mom of four boys and I'm currently working as a school chaplain at a local public Primary School. I want to thank the leadership team at women, world leaders, for giving me this opportunity and platform to share about the love and grace of our Lord. I hope you enjoy the podcast and are encouraged. Thank you so much for joining us today as we look at how women overcome the many adversities and challenges we may face in this world that we live in. We persevere and battle on. By putting on the full armor of God, becoming spirit, lead, and spirit field women of God, I get the opportunity to talk and walk through life with lots of women and young girls. And what God placed on my heart to share with you today is what many of us may feel inside. But often we don't want to share with others. As Christian women, we might even be tempted to give the impression that all is well when it's really not. We wear a mask that gives the impression that we've got it all together. Or we might be feeling ashamed about some of our mistakes or bad decisions. We may even occasionally fall into a pit of comparing ourselves to others. This really steals our joy and prevents us from receiving all God has for us. I don't know about you. But I can relate to sometimes feeling like really god, this is what you've got for me. This is it. This is my life. Will things ever get better? Will things ever change. We may feel or have even been taught we have to hold it together and make it appear. That all is well when on the inside. Inside. We may be screaming really god this is it. As little girls we dream and we're supposed to dream. But what about when our dreams don't come true? What about if our marriage didn't work out like we wanted, our kids might be struggling in a wayward lifestyle. Sometimes it may even be family members or people we really love who haven't met and then the Lord yet. And this puts a real burden on our heart. It may even be watching people we love and care for and extreme pain. Whether that be mentally, emotionally or physically. We might experience the unexpected loss of someone we love deeply. Or it could be watching someone you love walk through a long and excruciating illness. And you may have been thrusted into a caring role for someone. These last couple of years, the entire world has shown that things can change in an instant, what is constant? And where can we put our trust. I'd like to encourage you that no matter what is happening around us, there is a God who loves you, no matter what is happening around us, even if it feels like the whole world itself. And our personal world is falling apart. God is there. He's watching. He's listening. And he's guiding us through it all. Often we want the outcomes, the good outcomes without the conditions needed to manifest the outcome. Because God has a good outcome always. Jeremiah 29, verses 10 and 11. In the message translation translation puts it like this. This is God's word on the subject. I'll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out. plans to take care of you not to abandon you plans to give you the future you hope for sister I want to encourage you today that no matter what you've been through or going through, maybe even at the time you are listening to my words. God is a God of hope, and he has a good plan. Our job is to develop an intimate relationship with Him and trust his plan. How do we do this? We spend time with him. Getting to know him really know Him through prayer, quiet time, reading His word, and praising and worshiping Him even in the suffering In preparing for today's message, I was reminded of a woman in the Bible, Lot's wife, we aren't given her name. Sometimes I feel like I'm in such a heap of mess and challenges surrounding me. I feel like I don't even know my name or what day it is. But the story in Genesis 19 tells us as she and her family were being rescued by God from the burning city of Sodom. she disobeyed and looked back, turning into a pillar of salt. Regret, disappointment, guilt, over the past can keep us from looking ahead to a better future. God stands in front of us waiting for us to take his hand in surrender and trust. Oh, he has something wonderful waiting just for you. Even Jesus referenced her recorded in Luke 17, verse 32. He says, Remember Lot's wife. I think our Jesus might be saying, Look to Me, not behind you at things that may have happened. But look into my eyes and at me with me, we will take this journey together. We are told in Second Corinthians 517. If anyone is in Christ, she's a new person. The old life is gone, a new life has begun. We often want things instantaneously. But this dance in life is where God leads and we follow. In John 16, verse 33, Jesus reminds us we will experience trouble and sorrows in this world, but be of good cheer and be courageous. Our Lord has conquered this world. If you haven't received the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. I invite you to say this simple prayer inviting him into your heart. A new life will begin at this moment in time. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. A turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust you as my Lord and Savior. If you said that prayer angels are rejoicing because the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are rejoicing to up pray that you will be surrounded by brothers and sisters that will disciple you and teach you the word in the ways of God. We're all on an adventure with many mountains and valleys to travel. But God is there every step of the way. Be blessed till next time we chat.

September 11, 2022 -- "Jesus Is For Everybody" -- Rev. Mark Siegert, Bible Text: 1 Timothy 1:12-17 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord that he has trusted me and has appointed me to do his work with the strength he has given me. 13 In the past I cursed him, persecuted him, and acted arrogantly toward him. However, I was treated with mercy because I acted ignorantly in my unbelief. 14 Our Lord was very kind [a] to me. Through his kindness he brought me to faith and gave me the love that Christ Jesus shows people. 15 This is a statement that can be trusted and deserves complete acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and I am the foremost sinner. 16 However, I was treated with mercy so that Christ Jesus could use me, the foremost sinner, to demonstrate his patience. This patience serves as an example for those who would believe in him and live forever. 17 Worship and glory belong forever to the eternal king, the immortal, invisible, and only God.

With family: 2 Samuel 6; 1 Corinthians 16 2 Samuel 6 (Listen) The Ark Brought to Jerusalem 6 David again gathered all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand. 2 And David arose and went with all the people who were with him from Baale-judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the name of the LORD of hosts who sits enthroned on the cherubim. 3 And they carried the ark of God on a new cart and brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. And Uzzah and Ahio,1 the sons of Abinadab, were driving the new cart, 4 with the ark of God,2 and Ahio went before the ark. Uzzah and the Ark 5 And David and all the house of Israel were celebrating before the LORD, with songs3 and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals. 6 And when they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. 7 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God. 8 And David was angry because the LORD had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzzah4 to this day. 9 And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and he said, “How can the ark of the LORD come to me?” 10 So David was not willing to take the ark of the LORD into the city of David. But David took it aside to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite. 11 And the ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months, and the LORD blessed Obed-edom and all his household. 12 And it was told King David, “The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David with rejoicing. 13 And when those who bore the ark of the LORD had gone six steps, he sacrificed an ox and a fattened animal. 14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might. And David was wearing a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of the horn. David and Michal 16 As the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD, and she despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD and set it in its place, inside the tent that David had pitched for it. And David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD. 18 And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts 19 and distributed among all the people, the whole multitude of Israel, both men and women, a cake of bread, a portion of meat,5 and a cake of raisins to each one. Then all the people departed, each to his house. 20 And David returned to bless his household. But Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, “How the king of Israel honored himself today, uncovering himself today before the eyes of his servants' female servants, as one of the vulgar fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!” 21 And David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me above your father and above all his house, to appoint me as prince6 over Israel, the people of the LORD—and I will celebrate before the LORD. 22 I will make myself yet more contemptible than this, and I will be abased in your7 eyes. But by the female servants of whom you have spoken, by them I shall be held in honor.” 23 And Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death.

Plans for Travel 5 I will visit you after passing through Macedonia, for I intend to pass through Macedonia, 6 and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you may help me on my journey, wherever I go. 7 For I do not want to see you now just in passing.

Help him on his way in peace, that he may return to me, for I am expecting him with the brothers. Final Instructions 12 Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was not at all his will2 to come now. He will come when he has opportunity. 13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love. 15 Now I urge you, brothers3—you know that the household4 of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints—16 be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer. 17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence, 18 for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such people. Greetings 19 The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord. 20 All the brothers send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 21 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. 22 If anyone has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come!5 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. 24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Should I indeed let myself be consulted by them? 4 Therefore speak to them and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Any one of the house of Israel who takes his idols into his heart and sets the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and yet comes to the prophet, I the LORD will answer him as he comes with the multitude of his idols, 5 that I may lay hold of the hearts of the house of Israel, who are all estranged from me through their idols. 6 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: Repent and turn away from your idols, and turn away your faces from all your abominations. 7 For any one of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel, who separates himself from me, taking his idols into his heart and putting the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and yet comes to a prophet to consult me through him, I the LORD will answer him myself. 8 And I will set my face against that man; I will make him a sign and a byword and cut him off from the midst of my people, and you shall know that I am the LORD. 9 And if the prophet is deceived and speaks a word, I, the LORD, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. 10 And they shall bear their punishment1—the punishment of the prophet and the punishment of the inquirer shall be alike—11 that the house of Israel may no more go astray from me, nor defile themselves anymore with all their transgressions, but that they may be my people and I may be their God, declares the Lord GOD.” Jerusalem Will Not Be Spared 12 And the word of the LORD came to me: 13 “Son of man, when a land sins against me by acting faithlessly, and I stretch out my hand against it and break its supply2 of bread and send famine upon it, and cut off from it man and beast, 14 even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness, declares the Lord GOD. 15 “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they ravage it, and it be made desolate, so that no one may pass through because of the beasts, 16 even if these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord GOD, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the land would be desolate. 17 “Or if I bring a sword upon that land and say, Let a sword pass through the land, and I cut off from it man and beast, 18 though these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord GOD, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they alone would be delivered. 19 “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out my wrath upon it with blood, to cut off from it man and beast, 20 even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, declares the Lord GOD, they would deliver neither son nor daughter. They would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness. 21 “For thus says the Lord GOD: How much more when I send upon Jerusalem my four disastrous acts of judgment, sword, famine, wild beasts, and pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast! 22 But behold, some survivors will be left in it, sons and daughters who will be brought out; behold, when they come out to you, and you see their ways and their deeds, you will be consoled for the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, for all that I have brought upon it. 23 They will console you, when you see their ways and their deeds, and you shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, declares the Lord GOD.” Footnotes [1] 14:10 Or iniquity; three times in this verse [2] 14:13 Hebrew staff (ESV)

Morning: Proverbs 13–14 Proverbs 13–14 (Listen) 13   A wise son hears his father's instruction,    but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.2   From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is good,    but the desire of the treacherous is for violence.3   Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;    he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.4   The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing,    while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.5   The righteous hates falsehood,    but the wicked brings shame1 and disgrace.6   Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless,    but sin overthrows the wicked.7   One pretends to be rich,2 yet has nothing;    another pretends to be poor,3 yet has great wealth.8   The ransom of a man's life is his wealth,    but a poor man hears no threat.9   The light of the righteous rejoices,    but the lamp of the wicked will be put out.10   By insolence comes nothing but strife,    but with those who take advice is wisdom.11   Wealth gained hastily4 will dwindle,    but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.12   Hope deferred makes the heart sick,    but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.13   Whoever despises the word5 brings destruction on himself,    but he who reveres the commandment6 will be rewarded.14   The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,    that one may turn away from the snares of death.15   Good sense wins favor,    but the way of the treacherous is their ruin.716   Every prudent man acts with knowledge,    but a fool flaunts his folly.17   A wicked messenger falls into trouble,    but a faithful envoy brings healing.18   Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction,    but whoever heeds reproof is honored.19   A desire fulfilled is sweet to the soul,    but to turn away from evil is an abomination to fools.20   Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,    but the companion of fools will suffer harm.21   Disaster8 pursues sinners,    but the righteous are rewarded with good.22   A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children,    but the sinner's wealth is laid up for the righteous.23   The fallow ground of the poor would yield much food,    but it is swept away through injustice.24   Whoever spares the rod hates his son,    but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.925   The righteous has enough to satisfy his appetite,    but the belly of the wicked suffers want.14   The wisest of women builds her house,    but folly with her own hands tears it down.2   Whoever walks in uprightness fears the LORD,    but he who is devious in his ways despises him.3   By the mouth of a fool comes a rod for his back,10    but the lips of the wise will preserve them.4   Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean,    but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.5   A faithful witness does not lie,    but a false witness breathes out lies.6   A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain,    but knowledge is easy for a man of understanding.7   Leave the presence of a fool,    for there you do not meet words of knowledge.8   The wisdom of the prudent is to discern his way,    but the folly of fools is deceiving.9   Fools mock at the guilt offering,    but the upright enjoy acceptance.1110   The heart knows its own bitterness,    and no stranger shares its joy.11   The house of the wicked will be destroyed,    but the tent of the upright will flourish.12   There is a way that seems right to a man,    but its end is the way to death.1213   Even in laughter the heart may ache,    and the end of joy may be grief.14   The backslider in heart will be filled with the fruit of his ways,    and a good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.15   The simple believes everything,    but the prudent gives thought to his steps.16   One who is wise is cautious13 and turns away from evil,    but a fool is reckless and careless.17   A man of quick temper acts foolishly,    and a man of evil devices is hated.18   The simple inherit folly,    but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.19   The evil bow down before the good,    the wicked at the gates of the righteous.20   The poor is disliked even by his neighbor,    but the rich has many friends.21   Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner,    but blessed is he who is generous to the poor.22   Do they not go astray who devise evil?    Those who devise good meet14 steadfast love and faithfulness.23   In all toil there is profit,    but mere talk tends only to poverty.24   The crown of the wise is their wealth,    but the folly of fools brings folly.25   A truthful witness saves lives,    but one who breathes out lies is deceitful.26   In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence,    and his children will have a refuge.27   The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,    that one may turn away from the snares of death.28   In a multitude of people is the glory of a king,    but without people a prince is ruined.29   Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,    but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.30   A tranquil15 heart gives life to the flesh,    but envy16 makes the bones rot.31   Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,    but he who is generous to the needy honors him.32   The wicked is overthrown through his evildoing,    but the righteous finds refuge in his death.33   Wisdom rests in the heart of a man of understanding,    but it makes itself known even in the midst of fools.1734   Righteousness exalts a nation,    but sin is a reproach to any people.35   A servant who deals wisely has the king's favor,    but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully.

Friends of the Rosary: At this time of new evangelization, the Enemy is taking advantage and confusing many prelates. A friend is sending us a horrific video of yoga practitioners inside a Catholic Church in Belgium. Every Wednesday in July and August, at St. James Church in Antwerp in Belgium, yoga classes were offered for its parishioners. The pews of the central nave near the altar were removed so the participants have an area for their "sacred space yoga". The parish priest and the local bishop were supporting the blasphemy. The infiltration of Hinduism and other anti-Christian ideas into Catholic spirituality is a fact. Maybe the prelates don't know of the dangers of Yoga (rooted in the Hindu religion, where positions are salutations to the many Hindu Gods) and that Catholics should not practice it at risk of offending the First Commandment.

The Christian notion of...courage, which Our Lord presents, is different from both of those," said Michael Pakaluk, Ph.D., professor of ethics at The Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America.  He wrote an article for The Catholic Thing, titled "The Four Deaths," in which he recommends reading "The Passion and the Death of Jesus Christ," written by St. Alphonsus Ligouri.

Nowhere in Scripture are we told to have human mentors to guide us through the devil's world. Your mentor is God the Holy Spirit. You need to learn the mechanics of the spiritual life and the iron for this to happen is a well-qualified pastor plus the filling of the Holy Spirit, not a fellow Christian. Our Lord prophesied the mentorship of the Holy Spirit in John 14:16-17, “I will ask the Father and He will give you another Helper that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him or know Him; but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.” The Holy Spirit, your mentor, will sharpen you with Scripture through a well-qualified pastor.

Readings: Wisdom 9:13–18 Psalm 90:3–6, 12–17 Philemon 1:9–10, 12–17 Luke 14:25–33 Like a king making ready for battle or a contractor about to build a tower, we have to count the cost as we set out to follow Jesus. Our Lord today is telling us up front the sacrifice it will take. His words aren't addressed to His chosen few, the Twelve, but rather to the “great crowds”—to anyone, to whoever wishes to be His disciple. That only makes His call all the more stark and uncompromising. We are to “hate” our old lives, to renounce all the earthly things we rely upon, to choose Him above every person and possession. Again He tells us that the things we have—even our family ties and obligations—can become an excuse, an obstacle that keeps us from giving ourselves completely to Him (see Luke 9:23–26, 57–62). Jesus brings us the saving wisdom we are promised in today's First Reading. He is that saving Wisdom. Weighed down by many earthly concerns, the burdens of our body and its needs, we could never see beyond the things of this world; we could never detect God's heavenly design and intention. So in His mercy He sent us His Spirit, His Wisdom from on high, to make straight our path to Him. Jesus Himself paid the price to free us from the sentence imposed on Adam, which we recall in today's Psalm (see Genesis 2:7; 2:19). No more will the work of our hands be an affliction; no more are we destined to turn back to dust. Like Onesimus in today's Epistle, we have been redeemed. We have been given a new family and a new inheritance, made children of the Father, brothers and sisters in the Lord. We are free now to come after Him, to serve Him—no longer slaves to the ties of our past lives. In Christ, all our yesterdays have passed. We live in what the Psalm today beautifully describes as the daybreak, ready to be filled with His kindness. For He has given us wisdom of heart and taught us to number our days aright.

In Word on Fire's most recent episode, Bishop Barron brought on famous (or infamous) actor Shia LaBeouf to discuss his recent conversion to Catholicism and his soon to be released movie about Padre Pio, a famous saint of the Catholic Church. Logos takes the time to talk about some of the interview's "whoops and poops", positives and negatives. It is hard to be critical with someone coming into the Church, but it is always good to have a level head with these things. Anyways, enjoy our conversation about it. Thanks be to God for another man entering the communion with Our Lord through His Church. Let's pray for Shia!

Friends of the Rosary: We celebrate today the memorial of St. Monica, the mother of St. Augustine, while we pray the Rosary driving around Greenwich, Connecticut. St. Monica, a fourth-century saint born in the north of Africa, is a role model for incessant prayers. Through over two decades of prayer and tears, she gave the great Augustine to the Church of God. Also, with patience and prayer, Monica obtained the conversion of her husband, a pagan named Patricius. Today is also, the feast of Mary, Health of the Sick, as well as the feast of the Seven Joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as The Franciscan Crown Rosary. The Joys of Mary remembered in the devotion are these: The Annunciation of the Angel to Mary The Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth The Nativity of Our Lord The Adoration of the Magi The Finding of Jesus in the Temple The Resurrection of Our Lord and The Crowning of Our Lady, Mary, in Heaven as Queen Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! St. Monica, Pray for Us! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • August 27, 2021, Today's Holy Rosary on YouTube — Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET
