I live in this city = zyje w tym miescie

This is part of the program of the 25th anniversary of the Catholic Charismatic fellowship, called “HalleluJah“, which Iwona helped start and lead in Wroclaw, Poland  The first day will be kicked off by an outdoor evangelism event in the very center of Wroclaw with concerts, multi-media presentations, games for children, etc.

Six days ago, some friends in Poland took up an offering so that our family would be able to attend. With their donation, I was able to purchase four tickets for Iwona and our three children today!  They will be leaving on September 30th.

I am now praying for the funds to come in within five days for my ticket and our expenses.  I would like to shoot a documentary of this historic event.

From Poland will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming

St. Faustina Kowalska reported seeing a merciful Jesus, with beams of red and white light shining from his heart.

In her diary, the cloistered mystic described a 1935 vision in which she was told the write down this prayer as protection from divine judgment: “Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

Some of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy thought the uneducated nun was unstable and the Vatican shunned her writings. But her visions impressed a young priest in nearby Krakow named Father Karol Wojtyla, who rose through the ranks from professor to bishop, archbishop and cardinal. Finally, he became Pope John Paul II.

The Polish pope was a champion of Faustina’s “Divine Mercy” devotions. He testified: “The message of Divine Mercy has always been near and dear to me.” In a sense, he said, it “forms the image of this pontificate.” On April 30, 2000, John Paul II canonized her as St. Faustina.

It was in 1937, a year before she died of tuberculosis, the 32-year-old nun had another apocalyptic vision of Jesus.

She wrote: “As I was praying for Poland, I heard the words: I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming.”

Emma

Dear friends of ours, Levi and Daniel Lim, lost their daughter, Emma last night in Myanmar (Burma).  She was almost one. The whole family was and is still working with disaster relief after Cyclone Nargis hit Myanmar. Read about them here.

Cyclone Nargis was a strong tropical cyclone that caused the worst natural disaster in the recorded history of Burma (officially known as Myanmar). The cyclone made landfall in the country on May 2, 2008, causing catastrophic destruction and at least 146,000 fatalities with thousands more people still missing. It is feared and quite possible that due to lack of relief efforts, a total of a million people already have or will die from this catastrophe. Damage is estimated at over $10 billion (USD), which made it the most damaging cyclone ever recorded in the North Indian Ocean Basin.

this election day

everything you hold sacred

will need your vote

vote your conscience

Biden and Pelosi, both Catholics, were asked about their stand on the issue of life at conception during recent TV interviews. Their answers which did not align with the teaching of the Catholic church, prompted a response from US Catholic bishops by publishing Fact sheet on pro-life and Church teaching on abortion.

McCain – Palin rally in Lees Summit, Missouri

our family at the McCain – Palin rally

The whole family went today to a rally in Lee’s Summit, MO to support John McCain and Sarah Palin.

This Election Year in our homeschooling household, we are trying to teach our children (11, 9, 5) that their choice matters and it is precious. It will be noticed by God and by their fellow citizens. It will be engraved in their conscious forever, so they need to be aware of what the candidates are saying, believing in and living for. We talk about what is most important in life, how to prioritize your political choices, and according to what standards they should be aligned.
