Always Walking With Jesus Christ

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Monday November 4th began writing about what occurred on Sunday November 3rd

Yesterday’s journey began when I awoke from a peaceful sleep suddenly thinking how it was the day to set the clock back one hour to daylight savings time and I could wait or get up no matter what time it was and get it done.  I chose to get up and immediately saw that it was 3:33 AM which of course meant it was according to man-made convention now 2:33 AM.  But, the most profound message to come later was already materializing and the time was a cue.  Just the evening before in a written communication with a dear friend in a faraway country who had mentioned acquiring knowledge through some new studies that to me might be too New Age pseudoscience not giving deference to Christianity.  So I went on to inquire and discuss my concern in a lengthy letter.

My friends interest in what some might consider pseudoscience got me interested  in knowing just what some are studying in this topic and I have to say my first instinctual as well as life experience based thought was it’s something occult!  I know how some people these days go off the rails with the occult and “new age religion” craze or even pagan beliefs, I’ve even seen how some who profess to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior whether Catholic, Protestant, Baptist or any other Christian sect went from practicing that faith to being a pagan in 3 simple steps basically!  Some may know I speak my mind and I’ve experienced or learned enough by now to at least know what the basic gig is all about for us humans who are children of God’s, regarding our purpose for being here.  But, my old school standard belief system which many esoteric or highfalutin modernists find boring and stupid is something I’m absolutely sure is the TRUTH.  The simple basic fundamental is that this is a battle between good and evil and a war for souls which have free-will.  Choice is involved and overtime each soul is given full opportunity to be in the light ultimately or dwell in darkness and evil for eternity!  God is the only being that “Created” anything and all of this and beyond our capabilities to perceive further is the creation of the all-knowing, all loving omnipotent God.  I did study other man-made religions over decades and Hindus, Buddhists and especially Muslims of Nation of Islam follow concocted by man systems of belief; but nobody can lay claim to what Jesus Christ said and did, He is God and His plan of Salvation through the New and Everlasting Covenant with humanity is the only one to eternal Life.  Nothing else even comes close to having that absolute truth and power that God performed on the cross to take away our sins and imperfection in order to allow us our own Free Will, but to become Absolute and Holy in order to be with Him.

I have seen how some belief systems either through design or even malicious intent are constructed to lead people away from God and to falsehood I’m sorry to say.  In some cases these can be pathways to diabolical forces that are quite evil in purpose and intent.

I’m confident that you are of course aware of the controversy involved and in this quote, it is only a scratching of the surface of the reason why these practices will not be on solid ground with many others that see as I do the fundamental flaws inherent in them; and more importantly especially to God, as this one Scriptural quote spells it out pointblank  for those with faith.

I’m already positive about the truth of why I was born and where I’m going when I die here on earth, which could be at any moment as our lives are fragile and inevitably we all die one way or another; but the same basic truth remains for me, which is that Jesus Christ is who He said He was and is; that “He alone is the way the path and the life and  none come to the Father but by the Son!

I told my friend who was studying a variety of schools of thought in dealing with the mind and spirituality, how I already knew about hypnotherapy having used it, or a form of it referred to as “relaxation technique” when learning to fly aircraft decades ago to remove undue stress or fears and prepare for lessons, especially solo ones.

But, I suggested caution to my friend when she said some disciplines can touch on the subject of how Jesus Christ communicated with His heavenly Father in terms of science which prompted me to say Jesus our Lord was God in human flesh and spirit form but that part of the “Holy Trinity” that was physically here on earth while His Father was in heaven and the go between is the Holy Spirit of God which we can talk to as referred to in the Book of  John and other Holy Scriptures, as the Comforter when we pray to Jesus Christ that is who He sends to us is God’s Holy Spirit.  Trying to explain this with other philosophies, or science, which is also a form of philosophy to define and explain the tangible or material world, is a fool’s errand because the WORD of God, Holy Scripture, is the only device or means we have of discussion or modality from which to draw any insight aside from or through our prayer.  I went on to say can you point out to me some specific Holy Scriptures that indicate precisely what some people are referring to in man-made templates about communing with God they are referencing in such studies about how God and Jesus communicated while He was on earth in the flesh, and even why He would want us to try figuring out such a thing, which for all intent and purposes would be impossible?  And, especially if He didn’t instruct us on the matter and declare that we must!  I can surmise that there are those that think they are or can be as smart as God which we know was something that the fallen ones did in the pre-earth age, and still many do try that now, or those who think themselves gods in a sense.  We at our best are His humble little servants who follow only His will; nothing or no one else’s, only He knows what is best for us as only He knows all things!  There is the extreme danger for anyone fooling around with man-made concocted theories and the opening of a Pandora’s Box, or portal to things not of God and actually contrary to believing in Him or trusting Him alone.  A plain illustration is Voodoo in its pagan form or even Voodoo Junk Science.

Further in Scripture Jesus Christ told us that none come to the Father but through the Son and when we pray to Him that He sends us the Comforter which is His Holy Spirit; and why should we think there is anything more to it than that?

Previously I also mentioned the Holy Trinity to my friend in that letter and just hours later a very profound thing occurred when out for my early morning walk with my dog that I think it connects the dots precisely.

I’ll also say my friends reply to my letter contained three angel symbols at the end of the letter prior to my bringing any of this up as well, because what I’m about to explain hadn’t even happened yet.  Very nice how dots get connected how they should without even trying!  🙏  😇😇😇

So, after setting all older analog clocks back one hour I decided to stay up and do some writing.  A few hours passed quickly and the sun was rising when I realized it would be good to take my dog for her morning walk a bit earlier than usual while its very peaceful and quiet.  We left the house and I felt the cooler brisk morning air of fall that now replaced those stuffy humid summer mornings of just several weeks ago.  We walked on about a mile to a cove and followed along its shore until we reached an area we sometimes sit quietly taking in all of the natural and man-made activity.  It was all so beautiful with a vivid actual piecing dreamy reality.  After sitting for about 10 minutes I asked my dog who had been lying next to me if she wanted to do more walking, she immediately got up and showed she was ready to press on!  As we did walk ahead we approached a large hill which has a road leading up away from the shoreline.  As we got to the top of this road we could proceed in one of three directions; go straight on or take a hard left or take a hard right!  We had taken any of the three paths on many previous occasions but when I said to my dog do you want to take the big walk she immediately went right which is the longer path to take and we hadn’t done that for awhile.  As we walked on not even a minute my attention was drawn to two cars parked in a driveway on our immediate right and saw that one had a plate with the two letters and then three numerals which in this case were 333.  I realized that was very fitting and we went on to the next juncture when my dog didn’t hesitate and led me down a walking path and off of the road, again down to the shore and standing in their majesty were some cedar trees close to the end of the path next to the ocean.  It happens to be a location noted for its history of cedar trees by the ocean, as well it’s a great spot to sit and meditate or pray.  Some interesting tie-in here is that back during the 18th century the Maronite Christians used a white flag with the cedar tree, with reference to the Bible (Psalms 92:12, “the righteous flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a cedar in Lebanon”). “It symbolizes immortality and steadiness.”

“Throughout the Bible, up to the last chapter of Revelation, trees are seen as important to mankind.  Many varieties of trees are cited in the Bible.  The cedar became even a temple in Scriptures.”

“Cedar trees are mentioned in the Bible and by classical writers who were enthralled by the tree’s size and majesty.  The branches of the cedar tree are wide and grow almost parallel to the ground, making the tree appear to be constructed of successively higher floors made of greenery.”  (Garden Guides)

So as my dog and I sat there, again looking out over the open water as we did earlier on our trek, suddenly coming up on the right out from around some old dock pylons out in the water that had been obscuring our view was this big beautiful pure white swan and as if that wasn’t enough to my surprise two more swans came around following closely behind the first!  Seeing those three beautiful white swans was breathtaking, again with a piecing dreamy reality!

We took all of this joyous beauty in then proceeded with our walk back home while along the way I contemplated the connections God had just revealed of my being aware of all these 3’s coming up and the direct symbolism and meaning contained in all of these factors of the communication with my friend; and then the events of the morning revolving around the Holy Trinity and how we do communicate with God through His Holy Spirit just like Jesus Christ said to us in the Holy Scriptures.  These guideposts during the walk are evidence that God was with us every step of the way and has spoken to us in this mystical but real way to make it clear we are on the right track or path to His Kingdom!  We should never doubt for a second that He is who He said He was when He died on the cross for us and that He wants all of us to be saved to everlasting Life with Him in Heaven.  Having faith in Him is what it’s going to take for each of us and then He alone will take care of everything!

Swan Meaning, and Messages

“In this case, swan symbolism heralds the development of our intuitive abilities and altered states of awareness.  In other words, we are going to be shown new ways of thinking, breathing and going with the flow of life.

Like the giraffe, swan meaning also asks you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead.  Therefore you should follow hunches and pay attention to your instincts.  While doing this, you must also not forget to honor your feminine intuitive side.

Alternatively, swan symbolism is reminding you of your inner grace and beauty. This poise is something that you must allow to shine forth for others to see.”

“Know that you have the social skills, grace, style and poise to accomplish anything you  choose!” -Swan

The Swan Metaphor

“The swan that gracefully moves on a lake is a picture of elegance in motion but what is hidden from the eye is the activity going on beneath the water’s surface.  We don’t see the hard work conducted by the swan’s webbed feet which propels the graceful motion we see and admire.

The swan’s movement is an ideal metaphor for expertise and excellence.  We admire the very best in their fields because they are able to make the sublime look easy.  They are like white swans.  They do all the hard work in the shadows and display excellence and elegance in the open.  It is common consensus that genius makes the hard look ridiculously easy, thus giving the impression that it is effortless”.

The Holy Trinity

“For there are Three that bear witness in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these Three are Beliefs and Believers-Trinity the Christian doctrine defines God as three divine persons: The Father, The Son (Jesus) and The Holy Spirit.

Update: Today Sunday November 10th I took the same walk at the same time with my dog and the weather was practically identical, quite quiet and serene at the water’s edge; but along the way the car with the 3’s on the plate not there and the swans were nowhere to be seen anywhere in the entire bay area within view!

My friends interest in what some might consider pseudoscience got me interested  in knowing just what some are studying in this topic and I have to say my first instinctual as well as life experience based thought was it’s something occult!  I know how some people these days go off the rails with the occult and “new age religion” craze or even pagan beliefs, I’ve even seen how some who profess to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior whether Catholic, Protestant, Baptist or any other Christian sect went from practicing that faith to being a pagan in 3 simple steps basically!  Some may know I speak my mind and I’ve experienced or learned enough by now to at least know what the basic gig is all about for us humans who are children of God’s, regarding our purpose for being here.  But, my old school standard belief system which many esoteric or highfalutin modernists find boring and stupid is something I’m absolutely sure is the TRUTH.  The simple basic fundamental is that this is a battle between good and evil and a war for souls which have free-will.  Choice is involved and overtime each soul is given full opportunity to be in the light ultimately or dwell in darkness and evil for eternity!  God is the only being that “Created” anything and all of this and beyond our capabilities to perceive further is the creation of the all-knowing, all loving omnipotent God.  I did study other man-made religions over decades and Hindus, Buddhists and especially Muslims of Nation of Islam follow concocted by man systems of belief; but nobody can lay claim to what Jesus Christ said and did, He is God and His plan of Salvation through the New and Everlasting Covenant with humanity is the only one to eternal Life.  Nothing else even comes close to having that absolute truth and power that God performed on the cross to take away our sins and imperfection in order to allow us our own Free Will, but to become Absolute and Holy in order to be with Him.

The Unreality Snowflake Mind-Set of Liberals

FAIRY-TALE NONSENSE

I just wanted to share a long comment I posted in reaction to a woman’s comment about how difficult it is for liberals to find jobs that match their education and skills!  I think we see clearly what their skills are or certainly what  they lack!  Get a CLUE!

Do you liberals believe in Utopia or Shangri-La too?  There is no panacea!  Lazy ass complaining liberals need to grow up and face reality and while they are at it get some faith in God Almighty!  If they believed in God as they should instead of being heathens or pagan people; they wouldn’t have any major snafu in moving forward with Hope and Faith in HIM!  Man can never hope to make this world a fine and dandy place for all like you and many on the left would have us believe is possible!  I’ve had to jump back and forth more than a few times as times and circumstances changed in regard to what career path I followed to make my living and pay the bills!  Stick-to-itiveness is the key not belly aching whining or laying in the street demonstrations like a snowflake trying to blame others for the hardship of life!  Or if not; then we’ll be listening to the likes of AOC and BETO types to take us to the Promised Land!  This idea of sustainability is just a cliché term that liberals love to throw around as if it means something!  Its horseshit and nothing people do on this planet is going to be SUSTAINABLE with nearly 10 Billion people and climbing!  Maybe if we got rid of 9 billion then we could talk sustaining that level in some practical way!  FAIRY-TALE NONSENSE!  Try selling these BS concepts to China’s inner communist party government or even say Iran and the Supreme Ayatollah!  Do you really think it’s going to ever happen that all world governments and leaders will be on the same page and willing to believe in liberals or progressive’s BS line of puke brain stupidity?  NEVER!  This is a rat race and God is the only way out!  More humans better wake up to that fact and accept it making sure they live by faith not self-appointed gods that think they can make it all happen!  People are too imperfect and lacking in power to work these mega problems out, especially in time to fix it all!  Like sand though the hour glass we are not heading toward perfection here, we are heading toward an end game, and then the curtain falls!  It has all been foretold in Holy Scriptures; the word of God!  For every major problem we can get a handle on fixing, several more pop-up that people create.  Just facing reality here folks!  Or do you and others really think that people are going to make a near perfect existence here on earth in the next 100 or 1000 years even?  NEVER!  Some of you say more awareness of the problem is the left’s message and mantra?  Please!  You’re wasting your breath with any of this poppycock!  Getting the whole planet to scream, OH LOOK, isn’t going to fix a damn thing!

The stupidity of the leftist agenda and their gall to complain about lack of work too, is outrageous and totally asinine!  Give me a break, I’m so sick of these leftist, progressive mental midgets like AOC or BETO and company tossing shit bombs on anything great about America, while they shoot off their mouths and DO NOTHING!  Got to be CRAZY PEOPLE or even worse, EVIL!

God Help Us!

Was I One Tin Soldier?

“to even lay down my own life,”

Great story line for a film back in the 70’s called “Billy Jack.”

Just had some interaction with a friend on the posts and her thoughts suddenly got me thinking about a film I remembered seeing when I was a kid that had a good theme and message derived from the dealings of Billy Jack with bad people so much like today but it’s even worse now all over the place and way more vulgar and sinister!  I could visualize how this all connects to my actual life experience in the very recent past and things that mean so much to me and should to the country!

The term One Tin Soldier comes from the book “Mere Christianity” by CS Lewis.  Jesus is the One Tin Soldier.

Then in the 70’s they tailored this movie role for Tom Laughlin “Billy Jack.”  His character was an “ill-tempered, karate-chopping pacifist” who battled racists through four movies. The first film, released in 1971, also produced a hit song: “One Tin Soldier.” I figure some thought was there about this character being a pacifist, making him a bit Christ like and he did step up to protect the innocent and vulnerable!

He was up against the haters or bullies and that correlates well with what is going on in our society presently extremely well; as mentioned I even know from firsthand experience in my own dealings with the bully government full of Nazi like thugs and conspirators that even went against me when I was trying to protect the environment and nature, the unprotected innocent, that they were trampling upon for greed, power, smoke and mirror crony agendas; negligently!

In the movies he had crowds with him in support of his voice and actions but I was totally stand alone, nobody else wanted to get involved or cared enough; but the times had a lot to do with that too, the 2000’s are not the 70’s!  Much had changed especially in the mind-set of people since back then!  Now we have the digital age and monster communication entities like Google!  Google is evil they support terrorist threats and accusations not peaceful accusations which is the flip-side of that 70’s era, it’s even blocking the internet from peaceful songs and ideas in some instances seeking to manipulate the public for nefarious agendas.

But the big contrast with this Billy Jack was that I wasn’t in a movie and had to be very careful and use my wits to face the harsh reality or I would have been crushed like a cockroach by what I faced alone, and they would have enjoyed that too much!  I never gave them that satisfaction!  Besides using my wits the thing that helped me Most of all was I had Jesus in my heart and thoughts always as I pushed through the lies, deception, corruption and dirt!  I never gave them that satisfaction so my head stood thick in spite of them; and out of the line of fire!  Jesus was my shield from even death that lurked nearby!  Even so, I took a lot of abuse and pain; I guess I had no choice!  When we serve God’s will it won’t always be simple or without consequence, but if I must suffer any consequence, “to even lay down my own life,” “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13.  I can’t think of any other reason or purpose that is more appropriate and worthy.

Yea, maybe I am a Tin Soldier; I’m also a faithful servant of God’s in the name of Jesus Christ.  It’s been hard as nails and mean and ugly; doing so much damage to my life and body but so what, look at what He was willing to do for me on that cross, He the most innocent being ever to be in this world!

“One Tin Soldier Rides Again”

False Prophet or Man of Perdition?

Surely, the antichrist will say he is God

ARE MY DOUBTS BECOMING REALITY?

I’ve had my conviction for some time that this Pope is not right with the teachings of Christ Jesus in accordance to the foundational precepts that Jesus directed Apostle and Saint Peter to build.  Over the centuries there has always been conflicting forces at work within and without the Church but none like today!

I offer this fine article from our good Sisters and Brothers of the Catholicism Pure & Simple

Vatican Confirms: Women already in diaconate formation

This quote may very well sum up what I’ve recognized being the case within our Catholic Church for many years!

“The sooner this happens, the sooner more eyes will be opened to the fact that neither the Novus Ordo Missae nor the conciliar church are the least bit Catholic.” Catholicism Pure & Simple

In the End Time men will think of themselves as God.  Surely, the antichrist will say he is God to trick and subdue even some of God’s elect!

Pray incessantly as we move forward with Hope and Faith in our hearts, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus!

Brother in Christ Jesus,

Lawrence Morra

Update: On November 13, 2019 after reading the article below I decided to place this information and my written response to it here for more to consider as they pray and discern what is happening in our world but more importantly in our Church that Jesus Christ instructed Apostle Peter to build. God Bless You.

Clergy and Laity to Pope Francis: We Have Had Enough of This Insanity

 

I had my doubts about this Pope for a few years and he has progressively gotten much worse in his straying from the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures in my humble opinion! I’m not worried in the least to state publicly my sentiments on this Pope’s radical, wayward behavior and I know he didn’t answer a letter I sent to him directly at the Vatican that was so urgent about corruption in my state and how it also involved a Catholic Minister; as well there was a spiritual component involved and I’m a Roman Catholic who reached out to him in desperation! I was attacked by evil forces and highly political persons that facilitated them; but the Pope shows no concern? Could this behavior at the Vatican by him now be the Abomination of Desecration to take place in Latter Days? He is working for something other than God and I’m shocked that the entire Clergy or Hierarchy of the Vatican, at least all who are not tainted by this recent atrocity in the Church are not taking a public stance on this immediately. This Pope Francis must be excommunicated for Heresy!
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Savior and Redeemer, God Help Us. Amen

I Am that I Am has Sent me; He the Alpha and the Omega

Doing His will is the Way!

This title applies to each and every one of us human beings!  The Creator is our Father in Heaven who gave us this opportunity to be a living, thinking child of God’s serving as an angel of flesh here on the earthly plane for His perfect plan as we seek His will to serve His divine plan and will in this temporal temporary life.

If we seek Him and His Holy Spirit and strive to accomplish our mission here we will eventually join Him and everything that is good on the Eternal Plane of Everlasting Life!  Perfection, with happiness, peace, love and glory will be ours; sharing it with Him while having “Joyfulness and Ecstasy” that we will want to never end and it will not, not ever!

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

God wanted me to say this.  And, this must be said; because so many of the wrong messages are being sent and instilled in the youth of today’s minds hearts and souls.  Things that the radical left and militant feminists are propagating are so off base.  The old paradigm that we are talking about of traditional belief and behavior is the right one, not only because they stood the test of time through the ages helping humans to survive as a species but more importantly it’s God’s paradigm and what He intended for His children to live by, while they live this brief but so important short test of time for each individual; to see if we are trusting in Him or ourselves more, and if so, do we trust Him enough or other forces, powers and principalities, mainly those that reject God and want to transgress the one being who created all of this and loves us more than we could ever imagine.  Do we pass or fail our own personal test as His children or not is the question because we are being tested; make no mistake about it!  You know who told me that first, my parents when I was a boy and my Dad went on to say while he was in the big war he saw young boys die in front of him or wounded and in the water screaming mother, as the sharks pulled them under, I get very tearing eyed saying this here, because our parents and mothers are so right, especially the ones following God’s paradigm, and not being selfish or bad role models; like for example Ripeno the champion soccer player with all of her over the top adrenaline spiked demonstrative, gloated behavior on the soccer field and especially what she says in public and showing hate for the President who is doing a good job of dealing with many major things to help his country, citizens and even the world; a very tall order while this “soccer player” shows no respect and how ungrateful she is to be an American, while she only is because of all those who died and suffered and still do, so that we could be free having so much fortune and blessings!

On Sunday in Rome John Henry Newman will become St. John Henry Newman.

“Pope Benedict XVI beatified Newman on September 19, 2010, at Cofton Park (near Birmingham). The pope noted Newman’s emphasis on the vital place of revealed religion in civilized society but also praised his pastoral zeal for the sick, the poor, the bereaved and those in prison. His canonization takes place on October 13, 2019, and from that time he will be known as St. John Henry Newman.”  catholicismpure.wordpress.com

“God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another.”

“I have a mission; I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons; He has not created me for naught.”

“I shall do good — I shall do his work. I shall be an angel of peace while not intending it if I do but keep his commandments. Therefore, I will trust him.”  St. John Henry Newman

 “John Henry Newman, C.O. (21 February 1801 – 11 August 1890) was a theologian and poet, first an Anglican priest and later a Catholic priest and cardinal, who was an important and controversial figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century. He was known nationally by the mid-1830s

Newman was born on 21 February 1801 in the City of London,[11][16] the eldest of a family of three sons and three daughters. His father, John Newman, was a banker with Ramsbottom, Newman and Company in Lombard Street. His mother, Jemima (née Fourdrinier), was descended from a notable family of Huguenot refugees in England, founded by the engraver, printer and stationer Paul Fourdrinier. Francis William Newman was a younger brother. His eldest sister, Harriet Elizabeth, married Thomas Mozley, also prominent in the Oxford Movement.[17] The family lived in Southampton Street (now Southampton Place) in Bloomsbury and bought a country retreat in Ham, near Richmond, in the early 1800s.[18]

 It was in the autumn of 1816 that Newman “fell under the influence of a definite creed” and received into his intellect “impressions of dogma, which, through God’s mercy, have never been effaced or obscured”.[25] He became an evangelical Calvinist and held the typical belief that the Pope was the antichrist under the influence of the writings of Thomas Newton,[26

Although to the end of his life Newman looked back on his conversion to evangelical Christianity in 1816 as the saving of his soul, he gradually shifted away from his early Calvinism. As Eamon Duffy puts it, “He came to see Evangelicalism, with its emphasis on religious feeling and on the Reformation doctrine of justification by faith alone, as a Trojan horse for an undogmatic religious individualism that ignored the Church’s role in the transmission of revealed truth, and that must lead inexorably to subjectivism and skepticism.”[30]

 On 13 June 1824, Newman was made an Anglican deacon in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford. Ten days later he preached his first sermon in Holy Trinity at Over Worton, near Banbury, Oxfordshire, when on a visit to his former teacher the Reverend Walter Mayers, who had been curate there since 1823.[32] On Trinity Sunday, 29 May 1825, he was ordained a priest in Christ Church Cathedral by the Bishop of Oxford, Edward Legge.[33] He became, at Pusey’s suggestion, curate of St Clement’s Church, Oxfordwikipedia.org/wiki/John_Henry_Newman

“His study and research eventually convinced John Henry Newman that the Roman Catholic Church was indeed in continuity with the Church that Jesus established.

October 9, 1845, he was received into full communion as a Catholic. Two years later he was ordained a Catholic priest in Rome and joined the Congregation of the Oratory, founded three centuries earlier by St. Philip Neri. Returning to England, Newman founded Oratory houses in Birmingham and London and for seven years served as rector of the Catholic University of Ireland.

Newman eventually wrote 40 books and 21,000 letters that survive. Most famous are his book-length Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, On Consulting the Faithful in Matters of Doctrine, Apologia Pro Vita Sua (his spiritual autobiography up to 1864) and Essay on the Grammar of Assent.

When Newman was named a cardinal in 1879, he took as his motto “Cor ad cor loquitur” (Heart speaks to heart). He was buried in Rednal (near Birmingham) 11 years later. After his grave was exhumed in 2008, a new tomb was prepared at the Oratory church in Birmingham.

Pope Benedict XVI beatified Newman on September 19, 2010, at Cofton Park (near Birmingham).

“God’s will is the way” Lawrence Morra

The Lord Jesus has told us we are here to, “love and serve God.”

We can pick up our cross and carry it our entire lives while we love and serve Him who knows each of us more than we can imagine while loving us even beyond that.  Each of us is so unique and special, so each of us has a particular purpose in His glorious divine plan!  Therefore, we can do no better than seeking “His will” for each of us and fulfilling our God given purpose; He is the Everlasting God Almighty, the “alpha and the omega!”

This is a wonderful announcement and description of the life of a servant of God’s that is a beautiful example of how we all can seek out God’s will for each of us with “humility and pure heart” to better serve His will and plan for us!  This Blog came to me at a moment when I had actually been speaking with a family member about “God’s will” being the only plan that matters for each of us, and that any plans we can come up with aren’t going to achieve the ultimate goal and purpose of our being here in the first place!  Doing His will is the Way!  God Bless You.

What Did the Skunk Tell Me and You?

having Faith is always the key to never give up the ship

I bet you like me would never have thought that a skunk would give a person a valuable lesson or message.

On Saturday September 28th at approximately 2 AM I awoke from a sound sleep to the overwhelming pungent odor of a skunk having sprayed something which I thought must have been a nocturnal battle between a skunk and some other animal because it had to be an all-out attack of some kind as the windows were all sealed up tight, so for that odor to permeate the home inside to such a degree meant the skunk had to have released “all its got” upon the adversary.  I put on the AC to cut down on the odor and went back to sleep.  After waking again around sun rise I got up and made some breakfast for both me and my dog and soon after instead of heading outside for a morning walk I instead decided to make a trip to the super market early, and on the way back would stop at a discount store to buy some suet cakes for the birds because I had ran out of them and like to put them out for all the birds that come around my home.

I was just getting back after the errands and pulling up in front of my house when suddenly this guy who also lives in the area and walks by often with his Chihuahua yelled out, “hey Lawrence I just saw this skunk over there near that old car,” which is parked by a neighbor’s home and some open space next to some large hedges separating the properties.  I told him thanks for the heads up and went on into my house to get my dog so we could have a morning walk, when I noticed that another neighbor down the road had come outside and was talking to the fella that advised me of the skunk which in turn led these other neighbors to call the police who dispatched an animal control officer.  When I got back from the walk the animal control officer was looking around near the old car so I put my dog in the house and went out to talk with the officer!  I told her that over the years I’ve noticed the occasional skunk or raccoon during the twilight or early morning hours in the area mostly foraging and then as suddenly as they appear they usually disappear probably moving on as they tend to just pass through the area.  I mentioned how during the night hours I had woken to the skunk odor so maybe some animal tried to tangle with this skunk and this skunk will probably just be moving on, but that I’ll keep an eye open during the day just in case; if there is an issue with this animal I’ll let them know.  The officer looked around a bit more and then she decided it looked like that may have already happened and the skunk disappeared.

After I had gone into the house and taken care of a few chores inside I again headed out to do some chores around the property so with my dog by my side we went out front when suddenly I saw the skunk heading toward us from across the road.  I quickly brought my dog inside to avoid her becoming agitated and of course didn’t want to get the skunk feeling threatened and possibly my dog or me getting sprayed.  After putting my dog inside I went out to investigate and suddenly the skunk started out from some large shrubs along the front perimeter of my home heading straight for me as though it had intent on coming right up to me!  I’m very friendly with all of the wildlife in the vicinity of my home and especially in the winter when the animals are stressed with the ground frozen and covered with snow I like to put out seeds and nuts for them at the base of trees so that any squirrels, rabbits, birds or whatever little critter is hurting for a meal can stop by for a free one.  Sometimes when out there putting out a few treats with my dog, as I often do I will be talking to my dog and because the animals know my voice and scent of  course  they  start coming out or down from the trees and approach me, but not usually the skunks because they are more nocturnal and we don’t even have much opportunity to run into each other except on an occasional evening when I might be sitting out back with my dog who is very used to accepting all the animals well enough to sit calmly with me and won’t budge unless I say to.  During daylight hours sometimes a squirrel, rabbit or bird will practically come right up to us and be looking for a treat.  But with this skunk I knew this wasn’t the reason it approached especially during daylight hours, so of course I knew something was wrong but because there is the potential of the animal being rabid I had to be stand offish, along with the possibility that some other factor of territory or fight/flight reaction was in play and I sure didn’t want to get sprayed.  That actually happened to one of young dogs long ago and in just washing the powerful odor out of my dogs coat I became as permeated with it for days, a lesson well learned so as not to let my pup go running into a neighbor’s property when off the leash doing some business and tangle with a skunk that I hadn’t seen but the dog did!

But, what I became aware of as this all unfolded and I watched from outside and when inside my home as well, was that the odor at 2 AM wasn’t due to a fight between animals but that this frantic skunk I had been observing had in fact had a mate that was hit by a car during the early morning hours and that the injured skunk had somehow crawled off the road after being struck or the mate dragged her into these bushes that I was now beginning to notice him doing as the afternoon progressed but he was actually dragging his dead mates body under the old car and once there he began digging, I’m sure to cover her from the predators or any scavengers which was heart breaking to watch.  I decided right then to help and knew I needed some mint oil I could buy at a local Ace Hardware store so I jumped into my Jeep and drove there right away!  While there I ran into a guy I used to be acquainted with who worked for an International Corporation that I used to work for and we just talked about those good old days and how there were lots of great guys we knew working there and got caught up a bit. This guy Jeff knew one particular guy I used to work with out on the road driving interstate for some years on and off and how he was a great family man who also liked helping nature and animals so I felt this all added up to being a God Sent to keep on; that this was the right direction and that God wanted me to keep following this path!  We said good bye after checking out of the store and had exchanged numbers so we can talk again sometime.

I drove back home and I went to that neighbor that has the old car parked by the hedges and pointed out what actually had happened in detail now that I had all the pieces to the puzzle and we watched from a deck staircase area as I explained and pointed out where the skunk was.  Then as he heard our voices talking he came toward us I’m sure because he recognized this voice of mine like animals do here and I think he was seeking my help or at least something to give him a sense of direction. perhaps even comfort as I’m sure he felt crushed inside to be sporadically traumatized seeing his dead mate; from how peacefully things had been before this fateful previous night.  The neighbor hurried back inside wanting to make certain of not being sprayed as I watched the little guy and said, “Just don’t spray me; I’m going to help you with this now.”  As he walked around just a couple of feet from me under the wooden steps to the deck I sprayed some mint oil around into the air and near the steps which did act as a mild repellent and he went off toward my property and out of sight behind some fencing.  I jumped into action and ran home into my garage and got a shovel and sprinted back to the car because I knew the skunk could be back any moment and being confused perhaps not understanding what I was doing with his mate he may very well instinctively spray me.  I had asked my neighbor already if I can retrieve the dead skunk from under the car and could I just dig a hole a few feet down to bury it and probably that will end this dilemma doing us all some good and she said, “by all means sure, absolutely!”  I did it quickly and mission accomplished in time, because then as I continued to monitor the situation I saw that the skunk was spending time on my property and then on some adjacent land, which seemed to indicate he may have caught on to my intervention and was making some kind of adjustment internally and felt a good change coming or in the air.  Also, after the burial I had ran back home and on my concrete driveway I dossed the shovel with gasoline and lit it up to sterilize it and just as it lay burning which drew most of my attention there to it, the skunk came hobbling or almost lumbering as they do as fast as he could toward me and the burning shovel catching me by surprise.  I was a bit startled just as he must have been to see fire dead ahead of him; and never having seen it or known what it is or how dangerous, it still went up to it until the heat and reality of a danger struck him in the face.   He didn’t run from it but to my surprise walked as close as he could to it like a fighter to face it and then went around it and on to his continued trek up and around the front of my home as I called to him saying, “its going to be OK now little fella!”  As a sister of mine said to me in a conversation about battles we face in life and some I personally have in recent years and how she thought I have brass ones, which I have to say I think the skunk does too or at least he does now after interacting with me for the short time he did, “knowing I was there the whole time to back him up” but still maintaining a distance all the while my watchful eye wouldn’t be going away and ultimately “we worked together” to get through this difficult time and in the process learned so much more about each other!

So night would be coming soon and things were calming down when as I walked around the front of my home toward the road I looked up and perhaps a hundred feet away a man was walking in my direction and yelled out, “hello!”  He had a paper in his hand and I said, “what are you selling,” and said, “nothing,” when all of a sudden I realized I know this guy and we used to talk several years ago when he would walk by on his way from his parent’s home about a mile away to one of the Catholic churches about another mile away from my home.  I said, “oh wait it’s you John wow; I haven’t seen you in ages and how are you?”  He said, “Yes I’ve been away and lived in Boston for a while and still working toward becoming a priest!”  I told him, “fantastic and so good to see you again,” so we talked there about the ordeal I just experienced and he said while we talked he saw the skunk just as we began talking and I hadn’t mentioned it yet, so he thought it was like a pet because it got up fairly close behind me as if it was used to me and belonged there, so he didn’t think anything odd of it, as it then went off into the bushes and shrubs.  I went on to tell how the skunk kept sadly circling around all afternoon and I buried his mate but he many times during the experience kept coming right at me and John said, “aw he wanted some love,” and I said, “you know you’re right he just wanted to get some consoling and to know he is loved!”  I didn’t want John to be late to church so I said, “hey if you don’t mind I’ll take the walk with you to the main road which isn’t so far and going in your direction so then we can get caught up on the way!”  We went over some of the major events that had occurred with me and how had to do a lot of studying and work with the church and now was back to stay here at least for a while and we agreed to keep in contact better from now on.

Later after nearly a couple of hours had passed since parting ways with John and nightfall was approaching, when I went outside after having a little dinner and caught the young guy with the Chihuahua again who was walking passed my home, so I had to let him know how it all worked out and how the skunk apparently was adjusting back to his more normal behavior and that he wouldn’t have to be too concerned when walking by that old car with his little dog but just to keep an eye open until we’re sure.  I was then talking to this guy about God which actually came up naturally in the conversation and how with faith we get though all things this life can toss our way and God is in charge so we just need to try our best to follow His will.  Suddenly coming up on the road behind me as we talked as I had just turned slightly to see if the skunk was still being resolved now as it was getting dark and he may be more prone to show up following his paths again; when who shows up behind me this time not the skunk but it’s John going back to his parents from church.  At that instant I said, “and speaking of God as we just were, this is another man I know John,” and introduced them to each other as they shook hands.  It seems like the God connection to every bit of this daily journey was complete, but as we all realized it was getting dark and need to call it a day we all said have a good night and John and I talked a couple of minutes and then he walked off.

I went inside my house and got ready to install a new garbage disposal under the kitchen sink and as I got into it I had to stand up and get another tool when I see out on the open property to the rear of my home a dog running like the wind all over the place and noticed a van with the obvious owner standing by it so I wanted to check to see who it was as it was very low light and hard to make out who it was for sure from the distance we were apart; but no matter who, I was going to mention the distraught skunk and to keep an eye open so they don’t confront each other.  When I approached I could see it was another old neighbor going way back who I hadn’t seen lately but he has family living nearby even were the skunk had  made some paths.  Turns out he wanted to see what had happened with the skunk after hearing about it via his relative and brought his dog an Irish Wolfhound for the ride and was letting it stretch its legs as it did occasionally near his own home.  I thought there seems to be some freedom and natural order in the air now and this dog just showed us the joy of life that God created to cap off the day!

This led me to of course contemplate the day’s events and again being an animal lover as I am, appreciating all of God’s little creatures and this Joy of Life we and they feel I couldn’t help but focus again on my little skunk friend!  How he went from being lost and frantic reaching out to a tough and even cruel world for some help or like John said, “aw he wanted some love.”  That little creature went through the full spectrum of emotions or what it is to be happy and sad all in one day!  I could now see clearly he had needed to find balance again!  But he was feeling so much loss and separation and seemed to be aimlessly wandering and wasn’t; he was retracing all of his recent footsteps and paths that he walked in the night with his companion or mate and was truly stuck in that mode to be doing it in broad daylight when he is a fairly slow moving target for predators or anything else that might come up in the man-made world; but even so he was compelled to search and not give up trying.  He like all the animal critters  in my immediate area for at least a quarter mile radius know me as the friendly caring human  that talked to the wildlife when  they are being close up and more personal toward me, knowing I have rewarding treats like getting a free snack the way we humans starting as children to adulthood like a piece of pie or free fruit and candy, so too the animals can appreciate something they don’t get easily on their own or at all; but is so delicious they can’t pass it up.  So they overcome general instinctual distrust or fear and give hope a chance to take root.

While this traumatized mammal walked it seems aimlessly over and over again all the trails it followed nightly on its foraging expeditions it was seeking balance and as it saw me out there it kept trying to come to me for what the man John I hadn’t seen in a few years said when he saw was going on; it was “looking for some love,” a helping hand in time of need!   Yes, as the animal actually knew of me and didn’t feel lack of trust but believed enough in me to know I would do him no harm he kept looking for me as he went in what seemed circles struggling to make heads or tails out of a horrific traumatic end to his happy relationship with his mate.  As the day progressed I did get closer but never so close that I would do what I wanted to do which was to cuddle and pet the little guy and tell him everything will be fine in time you will have a mate again and you will have young kits of your own to enjoy with your mate and help a new generation begin.  But him knowing I took care of the deceased mate gave him comfort and he didn’t have that dead body in his face reminding him that something tragic just happened and how ill equipped he felt or was to fix it all.  That is us too; without our Creator we are suffering and at other times so happy to be alive and when in doubt or confused and broken in our hearts we seek out the one we know will do right by us and never would harm us, our Maker!  We are all learning and helping each other to learn what God wants us to learn, yes even sometimes from a skunk!  I see a demonstration in this event of God’s telling us that having Faith is always the key to never give up the ship as the Captain would say and we all know that perseverance and hanging in there is first and foremost to anything that lives so I was there to reassure the little critter in a time of great need and then he was able to carry on and do what God intended he do which is to live his life out as a skunk the best it can and just accept the good with the bad so that the optimum good will be derived from that life and in the end result of all of this world God will have the final say in every single thing, no two ways about it; He is the all-knowing and all powerful Creator who will have His accounting for everything He made out of His eternal infinite love!  Trust in the Lord and turn it over to Him so you can each day get up and say, thank You God for all You have given to me and this world, I thank You in the name of Jesus Christ as I have complete faith in You and that You will direct my paths until You are ready to take me from here to where You dwell forever!  Amen.

What did the Skunk tell me and You; not Peeyew!
