About me


The following is my morning prayer that encompasses my life’s purpose statement…I begin with the Morning Offering for consolers that I got from the Consoling of the Heart of Jesus retreat…Then I move to the Invitatory and Office of Readings that I get from Divine Office (divineoffice.org) or the Breviary that is on our parish website.  After praying the Office of Readings, and as I make my coffee, I pray with the scriptures for the day’s Mass readings

I have recently started focusing on praying all of the liturgy of the hours from the same website, and always focus my attention on God’s Divine Mercy at 3 o’clock.  I have been trying to focus on a daily examen to complete my day before the night prayer, but that is something I am still struggling with.  I know the inspiration is there from the Holy Spirit, but I wonder about my lack of motivation.

Independent of my ability to follow the schedule that I want to follow, I try to focus on my life’s purpose statement at all times.  Even when I find it hard to pray, I say…

As for me and my family we will serve the Lord. (from Joshua 24:15b) My focus will be on God’s purpose for my life. I will conduct myself in a manner that is worthy of the Gospel of Christ. I will struggle together with other believers to tell the Good News fearlessly, no matter what my enemies may do. (the last two sentences are paraphrased from Phillipians 1:27-28)

  2. My name is Ruth Nobles,I met you through Kat DeMoss and love reading your daily journal. can you e-mail me your thoughts on the meaning of the resurrection. I looked it up in our Catholic Catechism, also in my daily readings from a book that the late Bishop Untener of the Diocese of Saginaw, MI. wrote with the help of his lay people. My husband & I go to class with Father Steve on Fridays and our next class we are going to discuse the true meaning and would love to have your take on an easy way to explain this. I know it is different from when Jesus brought Mary’s brother Lazarus back. The more I study the more confused I get can you help me.ruthe@peak.org

    Hey Brother,
    Sorry it has taken me so long to finally get around to checking this out. I really don’t have any excuse. Man, it is impressive! We’ll have to catch up soon. Miss you man. Love to your family:)
    Your friend in Christ,
    Mikey D.

    • I am glad you like it. It means a lot to me to see that you got to see it after I think it is finally in a stage where I really think God can use it to spread the Good News. I’m sorry, I haven’t been very good at keeping in touch either, but now you know where you can come to check up on me anytime. You, Miguelina and the kids are on my mind a lot lately. I pray you are all doing well and the rest of the family as well…God bless you!

  4. Subject: Idea for future blog post


    Here is a cool website to help those with scrupulous tendencies. Scrupulosity as it pertains to the Catholic faith is rarely spoken of these days. Unfortunately, some Catholics have these tendencies and do not know it. This website includes scrupulosity resources, a blog, and a podcast to help those struggling with scrupulosity.


    God Bless

    • Thanks for the link…Interesting blog, but for some reason I think this something that is quite passe at this point…There is more denial of the existence of sin, than scrupulosity I am afraid…It is an interesting topic, and I love reading Cardinal O’Connor…My first Easter Mass as a Catholic, was at Saint Patrick’s in New York and his homily was amazing…God bless you!

    • Scrupulosity is not the problem for the masses today, it is lack of accountability for their idolatrous tendencies. I have great respect for Cardinal O’Connor, but he was talking about an issue that was present among the few, in my opinion, not the many. Thanks for the suggestion of the topic, but I will continue to blog on how I hear God moving me through His Word. God bless you!

  5. Catholic Crucifixes with Apostolic Blessing as an Apostolate


    I saw your blog and thought you may be interested in a Series of Crucifixes for which I have received an Apostolic Blessing from the Holy Father for my Holy Mass Crucifixes and Apostolate.

    They are being manufactured in the US by Jeweled Cross, LLC, and are made entirely from Pewter.

    You will find them at http://catholicseries.com
