Good Morning Disciples of Jesus Christ. We are reflecting today on God’s Holy Word in Matthew 24:13. https://biblehub.com/matthew/24-13.htm.
“But the one who endures to the end is the one who will be saved.”
Let us Pray – Lord, we come to You today for the Graces to be able to endure and stand firm until the end until You have finished washing our robes white. We know the trials are getting tougher, but we pray for Your Graces to be able to endure to the end. We also pray for all of our Priests and Pastors to be able to endure until the end. Please guide us so that we stay in accordance to Your Divine Will and allow us to receive the gift of living in Your Divine Will. Please light us on fire by Your Holy Spirit so that we can be Transformed into Disciples who are Truly Sanctified. We rely on Your Holy Word and to seek Your will daily that we will be able to endure until the end and fulfill everything that You require of us to become Saints. We ask this in Your mighty name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
These trials are getting tougher and even if we are not experiencing something affecting us personally, depending on where we are located geographically, we are seeing it through our Priests and areas all over the world. This is why our Lord has put it on our hearts to show everyone where we are in these labor pains, and we must keep ascending towards Our Lord through Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart to His Sacred Heart. There may be someone who reads this blog today that is going through a trial, whether it being personal, or some catastrophic weather event that has taken out their homes, or has experienced deaths in their families because of the Corona virus. These are all trials we must endure to become Saints, and we must continue to support one another through prayer and encouragement. Most of the videos we have posted today regard our perseverance until the end, not the end of the world, but the end of these evil times. Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart will Triumph through these labor pains, and we must seek Our Lord daily in order to have the fortitude to persevere until the end.
First, here is today’s Holy Mass celebrated at St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa, Canada for those that can’t get to Holy Mass due to illness, lockdowns, or restrictions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=417qbpBqPnY.
Here is Father Dan Reehil’s Radio Maria Podcast from July 9, 2021 on a very touching description of St. Mark Ji Tianxiang in China that became a Martyr because he persevered until the end. https://radiomaria.us/battle-ready/.
Here is more of a description of Father Michel Rodrigue as an Apostle of the end times in his prophetic messages and how he is also struggling with our Church to be both obedient to Our Church, but also to God’s Divine will. We are clearly living in the end times, and because many Christians do not want to accept all of the factual evidence that is appearing right before our eyes, many are rejecting the prophetic messages that are coming out by current prophets because it is something that they are not seeing Spiritually themselves. Here is Part 1 of a description of Father Michel Rodrigue from Mother and Refuge of The End Times for those that have just stumbled across this blog today. We have already posted many entries on Father Michel Rodrigue and have also attended a conference with him and Prophet John Leary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEukmBh-2n8.
Here is Father Richard Heilman’s homily a few days ago about what is happening to Father James Altman, who is essentially being censored and persecuted for speaking the Truth. This is a very clear sign of the end times and this type of censoring will only get worse as we continue to move deeper into the birth pangs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b97mGLv16eE.
Here is Father Mark Goring and his video on why Faithful Catholics support Father James Altman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHYHOGRV7pE.
Here are some highlights from U.S. Grace Force with Father Chad Ripperger on this Spiritual Warfare battle we are all in today and all of the tools we will need to be able to persevere until the end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zq9xMjkbyAA.
Here are some predictions from Saint Padre Pio that he made to three different lay people seeking his help when St. Padre Pio was alive presented by Following Padre Pio. We have to study the lives of the Saints because they are our example of what it takes for us to be able to persevere to the end and to be on fire for God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qFZ41YysL0.
Lastly, here is a video by the St. Paul Center with Jonathan Roumie, who played the role of Jesus Christ in the movie, “The Chosen”. I have not watched the movie and have heard conflicting information about Scriptural references that are not accurate in the film, but that it was still a very good movie. But, what I find interesting are the words that Jonathan Roumie made about being a “Born Again Catholic”. It is clear that Jonathan had an encounter with Our Lord that lit him on fire to act in the movie. However, we have to understand that “being born again” is not strictly limited to any denomination of Christianity and really is just a recent “coin of phrase” that describes a person on fire for God. A Saint is someone who exemplifies all of the qualities that it takes to pursue Our Lord on a daily basis so much that he or she receives the Graces to persevere through the stages of the Spiritual life that Transforms them. If someone is on fire for Our Lord, it is because he or she is starting to receive the Graces to become Saints, not necessarily “born again”. Being on fire for God to have a Relationship with Him is nothing new, and this is what we are all supposed to be doing for Our Lord as His Children, and this is why we study the Saints. It is not a matter of being born again, but a matter of having your Spiritual eyes and ears opened by the gifts of the Holy Spirit and continuing on a daily path of seeking holiness. Many young people have to understand that this is not new, but has already been shown to us by all of the beautiful examples our Lord has given us over the centuries through those that did seek Him daily. Here is the interview with Scott Hahn and Jonathan Roumie, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI6qTf2-R5Q.
