This picture was taken on the evening of Sept 23, 2016 in Portland Michigan.

 St. Patrick School was celebrating their homecoming game that Friday evening which also was the Feast Day of St. Padre Pio. One of their annual traditions is to have a bonfire after the game.

While attending this event, Grady James Heckman, 6th grade, age 12, of Portland St. Patrick School snapped this picture of the bonfire.

"I took the picture because I simply thought it would be cool to take a picture of the bonfire. I was there mainly because we wanted to hang out with friends. When I looked at the picture for the 1st time I was astounded at what I saw. It looked like an angel praying!"

"May Bringing Christ to the World Through THE MASS help you climb God's Holy Mountain, each day: to personally encounter, embrace, love, and know the Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen."

    Jesus Draws Us Deeper    
into the Mystery of His Love


    Homily 


    "Love Jesus! Jesus is a person, always alive and present with us! Love Jesus present in the Holy Eucharist!" -Pope John Paul II,  November 8, 1978.

    Where the Holy Eucharist is -- there is Jesus Incarnate! Where Jesus is there is God the Father. Where the Father and the Son are there is the Holy Spirit. Where the Most Holy Trinity is there is the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    The Lamb of God reigns: from the Tabernacle; on the Altar at Mass with His Father, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus blesses you during Benediction and the crowd at the Eucharistic Procession. The Risen Lord is the Kingdom of God Already Here and Now! Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of your soul's deepest desire. Almighty God lives within you through the Holy Eucharist bearing Divine Light, Holy Love, and Eternal Truth! 

    "O most loving heart of Jesus, thou art concealed in the Holy Eucharist, and thou beatest for us still ... In worshipping thee I worship my Incarnate God, my Emmanuel." -Blessed John Henry Neumann

    Spiritually unite your heart with the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Gateway to the New Jerusalem.

    "I am going to the wine press of the Church, to the holy altar where the sacred blood of that delicious and singular grape, with which only very few are allowed to inebriate themselves, drips continually. There - and you know I cannot do otherwise - I will present you to the Heavenly Father in union with His Son, to whom, for whom, and through whom I am totally yours in the Lord." -Meditation from St. Padre Pio

    "Only as you love others will Jesus' perfect love and the Blessed Virgin Mary's perfect love be made real. "Greater love hath no man than this, he lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) Only in love will you find the Blessed Mother, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

    You carry your cross, that is how you live the Cross of the Mass. The Eucharist is to feed you, to strengthen you, to keep you holy. And you will grow more in Holy Love. As you are fed you are able to give more. It's only in this giving that you grow! Love more! Love more! Love more! The loving heart grows the most in its reception."  

    "Shout with exultation O city of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel!" (Isaiah 12:4)

     The Three Divine Persons are always together as One!

    "Jesus is a 'man who knows suffering'. I invite you to unite your heart to the sacrifice of the Mass, an endless source of hope for all of life's trials." -Blessed John Paul II

    Hungry Immigrants feed upon the living Lord who is the source of their prosperity!

    "O my soul why art thou so downcast hungering for the living Lord. As a deer pants after living water and the spiritual eyes of man search out the hidden Jesus as the eyes of the Lord go to and fro over the earth seeking that one whose heart is perfect toward him on whose behalf our God can stand, O Universe do you not see, do you not hear the things that God has in store for those who love him."

    Recognize the Blessed Trinity's Real Presence. Remember them in the troubled night during the late-night watches as silently in our hearts as we affirm his forever presence, ushering in the Eucharistic Reign of Jesus Christ.

   As sorrow comes in the night so joy comes in the morning with the eternal light of Jesus penetrating our human doubts and darkness filling us with secure resolve. 

    Receiving Jesus in Holy Communion is beyond being kissed by the Son of Man.

    Universal Bread of Life. Cup of Eternal Salvation. Hope of all Christendom.

    The Holy Eucharist is the Immeasurable Gift of God for the Life of the world!

    "If we wish to adore the Real Face of Jesus . . . we can find it in the divine Eucharist where, with the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the face of our Lord is hidden under the white veil of the Host."- St. Gaetano Catanoso, Founder of the Veronican Sisters of the Holy Face

    "No longer will your Teacher hide himself, but with your own eyes you shall see your Teacher. While from behind, a voice shall sound in your ears; 'This is the way; walk you in it.' When you would turn, to the right or to the left." (Isaiah 40:9-10)

    As bereavement burdens the heart of mankind afflicted by the non-believing world the pride of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, revealing the hollow hopes of man caught in the world's chicanery, material greed, sensuous landslide of God's morality.

    "Come unto me all you who labor and are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you shall find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

    For the devil lies in his treacherous tales of success by cheating and dishonoring your fellow man and woman everyone an extension of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    "We curse you Satan, we cover you with the shed blood of Jesus Christ that brims up and overflows the great ciborium of liquid gold purchasing the battered souls back into being believers."

    As St. Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament said, "All the strength of my soul flows from the Blessed Sacrament."

   As the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary beat in one accord remembering the blessed infant Jesus in whose name all miracles were performed sweet Mary tabernacle of the Holy Spirit continued lifeline to the little Jesus. We take refuge in your maternal motherhood gently resting on the breast of God drawing from the beating hearts that now are one.  

    May the Most Holy Trinity as St Gertrude said, "Spin about the Father, Holy Spirit, and Son flowing through the Immaculate Queen of Angels in one perfect continued encirclement. O, magnetic, majestic force, pull us gently into the living stream, the perfect circle of holiness, for in them we move and feel and think and have our being in this we all are one as the dream of Jesus becomes fulfilled."    

    Love God with your whole heart, your mind and soul, spirit, and life.

    Preserve the Tradition of Faith in the magnetic circle of love!

    Immerse yourself, know, personify the Father's Adorable Divine Will for the Welfare of Souls.

   
"The devils tremble when the lips of Believers are purpled with the Precious Blood of Christ. -St. John Christendom

     "God always anticipates our needs and in every individual life there is a beauty and goodness that we can easily recognize as his grace, as a ray of the light of his goodness. For this reason we must be attentive, we must always keep open our "inner eyes", the eyes of our heart. And if we learn to know God in his infinite goodness, then we shall be able to see in our lives with wonder, like the Saints, the signs of that God who is always close to us, who is always good to us, who says: "Have faith in me!" -Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI
 
  
 We are dedicated to our daily living encounter with the Eternal Triune of One.

    Our Almighty Father, source of all good; His Beloved Son, Jesus, our Risen Savior; the Holy Spirit, thy Personal Sanctifier.

    We adore the Holy Face of Jesus within his Holy Temple.  

    Hurry to the Father's House where the Triune Majesty awaits you day and night.

    "Hail, sacred tabernacles, where Thou, O Lord, dost descend at the voice of a mortal!  Hail, mysterious altar, where faith comes to receive its immortal food!  Oh, I love Thy temple!  It is an island of peace in the ocean of the world, a beacon of immortality!  Thou art near to hear us....  O happy Church!  Truly in thee is a hidden God, an infinite treasure, a copious redemption, an everlasting safety.  Human eye sees not, nor can any finite intelligence penetrate that ineffable, mysterious presence of Heaven's great Lord." -St. Paul of the Cross

    Offer the Lord God homage by frequently assisting at the Holy Mass. The Mystery of Love and Mercy.

    Jesus gives us Himself through his Sacred Species in the Holy Eucharist. Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity!

    While offering Mass in the presence of the King and Queen in London, St. Dominic went into ecstasy. When he was finally able to continue Mass, at the elevation of the Holy Eucharist, the people saw the Infant Jesus instead of the Host and the Mother of God surrounded by twelve stars! When the chalice was raised they saw Christ on the Cross.

    "Mary lived in the divine Eucharist, the center of her love. All her thoughts, words, and actions sprang from It like the rays from the sun." -St. Peter Julian Eymard

    The new food for the Resurrection -- God's pledge of Eternal Glory. 

    "In receiving the Blessed Sacrament, always use words of love and hope toward our Lord, such as: 'You are my Father, O Lord! You are the spouse of my soul, the King of my love and the well-beloved of my soul! O good Jesus, you are my dear Master, my aid, my refuge!" -St. Francis De Sales "You are the Christ the Son of the Living God!"

    The Holy of Holies fuel, cleanse, heal, and awaken souls along their Heavenly Journey.

    "But I want to tell you that eternal life must begin already here on earth through Holy Communion. Each Holy Communion makes you more capable of communing with God throughout eternity." -Sister Marie Faustina Kowalska

    Embrace Jesus' Holy Redemptive Sacrifice and Death on the Cross.

    True perfection is our heroic espousal of the interior Christian disposition. Daily prayer, sacrifice for the New Jerusalem -- the Remnant Faithful Nation -- God's Holy Household built upon the Rock.

    Love God and the Most Holy Eucharist -- above all -- bear fruit ten-thousand fold. Watch over your heart with all diligence because from all of it comes the issues of life. As we in our faith walk stumble and fall we reach the intersection where Jesus' Divine Light illuminates us putting us back on the proverbial horse just as he did with the Apostle Paul, blinded momentarily by our lack of vision he restores our sight, stands us on our feet, and shows us the purpose in our destiny. We are chastized but cleansed with firm resolve not to stumble again. O tortured soul how can you learn but through your own mistakes so quickly made pure by the body and blood of Jesus. But God does not punish he converts the attacks of Satan into living good because all things work for good for them who love God and are called according to his purpose. For did he not promise I will never leave you or forsake you I will be with you until the end of time. He is the Truth Incarnate in our ongoing Daily Apostleship.

    "The altar of sacrifice becomes in a certain way the point of encounter between heaven and earth; the center, we could say, of the one   Church that is at the same time heavenly and in pilgrimage on earth, where, in the midst of the persecutions of the world and God's  consolations, the Lord's disciples proclaim his passion and death until he returns in glory."

   The Eucharistic celebration thus mysteriously shows the splendor of the Church, Benedict XVI stated, "'immaculate bride of the immaculate Lamb, Bride that Christ loved and gave himself up for to make her holy." -Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI   

    "Who can see you, O Sacred Host, without being moved?  Who is not attracted by your Divine beauty?  Who on feeling your burning rays does not feel your warmth, and drink of the fountain of life?" -Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, Servant of God

    St. Padre Pio was passionately in love with the Holy Eucharist.  He wrote:  "Let me recognize you as your disciples did at the breaking of the bread, so that the eucharistic Communion [may] be the light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart." "In the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist, in this sacrament of love, we have true life, a blessed life, and true happiness." "Let us spend our whole lives giving thanks to the divine Father who, in an excess of love for us, sent His only begotten Son and our most sweet Lover. Protected, covered and defended by the Presence of this dear Lord, let us stand before Him [in the Holy Eucharist] and pray with the humility of the creature and the confidence and freedom of the child."

    “Let the whole of mankind tremble, the whole of the world shake, and the heavens exalt when Christ, the Son of the Living God, is present on the Altar in the hands of the priest.” –St. Francis of Assisi

    "The angels have five duties. The first is to continually sing hymns and praises to their Creator (Isaiah 6:1-3). The second duty is to present the prayers of mortals to God and commend them with their petitions (Tobit 12:12). The third duty consists in their being sent as messengers to declare what God wants to declare (Genesis. 18:2 Daniel 9:21; Luke 1:11, 26 Luke 2:9; Matthew 1:20, 2:13, 19; Matthew 28:2). The fourth duty is protecting men whether as individuals or groups (Psalm 91:11; Matthew 18:10; Deuteronomy 10:5 ff; Revelation Chapters 2, 3). The last duty is to serve as soldiers and armed leaders (Psalm 149:7; Genesis 19: 13; Exodus 12:12 ff; 2 Kings 19:35; Matthew 13:49, 50). Let good men love their fellow citizens, the angels." - St. Robert Bellarmine

    We promote, protect, treasure, and vote for The Sanctity of Life in every instance; from the moment of conception to the last natural breath as directed by Pope Benedict XVI in a most recent proclamation against Euthanasia, "God alone chooses the moment of death." As Christians, our Inalienable First Right rests upon Almighty God's Command -- Thou Shalt Not Kill. He said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. God created man in his image; in the divine image he created them; male and female he created them. God Blessed them saying, Take dominion over all the earth, be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it." (Genesis 1:26-28)

   A Christian can not serve Christ the living God by choosing a pro-choice candidate. "No man can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and mammon." (Matthew 6:24) Let us separate the wheat from the chaff -- the life voter from the culture of death voter. Let us expect from all voters and politicians not the pro-choice vote but the true choice vote which is life! No true statesman will vote for death nor will a real American vote against each person's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

   "The war against abortion is not a war for trained military men. It is a war for every decent human being to engage in. We ourselves must vigorously fight the real war on terror or no future  remains in store for our nation, our families, or possibly even our very souls." -Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer

   "If you ate only one meal a week would you survive?  It is the same for your soul. Nourish it frequently with the Blessed Sacrament." -Blessed Andre Bessette

   What is prayer? Prayer is the elevation of your heart and mind to God. It builds up a close relationship with the Father, with Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. You cannot pray if you do not have the Holy Spirit. Jesus loves heart to heart prayer, which is the ideal way to pray. You are simply there with Christ and you are completely concentrated on Him. Go, be alone in your room and spend time with Jesus in this lovely prayer. Your relationship with God will grow and your love will grow every day.

   You are not a Christian if you do not pray. When Jesus was on earth He spent time with His Heavenly Father every day. Sometimes the Lord would spend the entire night in prayer with Almighty God; this time was the most important time of His day. Come and spend time with Jesus in prayer, especially in contemplative prayer, and your love for Him will grow every day. Jesus loves a prayerful heart.

   "Bring prayer in your family, bring it to your little children. Teach them to pray. For a child that prays is a happy child. A family that prays is a united family." -Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

   "I spend every free moment at the feet of the hidden God [in the Blessed Sacrament].  He is my Master; I ask Him about everything; I speak to Him about everything.  Here I obtain strength and light; here I learn everything; here I am given light on how to act toward my neighbor" -St. Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament, Divine Mercy Diary, 704.

   “Mary was consumed with the desire to make Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament known to all. To obtain this favor, she passed her time at the foot of the Blessed Sacrament in prayer and penance. In her limitless zeal, she embraced the needs of the faithful everywhere, for all time to come. The mission dearest to Mary's heart was that of constant prayer for the success of the preaching and missionary labor of the Apostles and all the members of Christ’s priesthood” -St. Peter Julian Eymard

   "How can we not be moved by compassion for those who seem to be wandering purposelessly? How could we fail to hope that they may encounter Jesus in their life, the only encounter that gives meaning to existence? The holy wish that the Kingdom of God may be established in every human heart is identified with prayer itself, as St Augustine teaches us: "Ipsum desiderium tuum, oratio tua est; et si continuum desiderium, continua oratio": your desire is your prayer; and if it is an on-going desire, it is also continuous prayer (cf. Ep. 130. 18-20); therefore, as a fire that burns and is never extinguished, the heart is made alert, it never ceases to desire God and always raises a hymn of praise to him.   

   Recognize, with the Bishop of Hippo, that it is the Lord who has instilled his love in your hearts, a desire that enlarges the heart even to the point of making it capable of receiving God himself. (cf. In ev. Jo. tr. 40, 10). This is the horizon of the earthly pilgrimage! This is your destination! For this reason you have chosen to live in hiddenness, renouncing earthly goods: to desire above all things that good that has no equal, that precious pearl for which it is worth giving up every other good, to gain possession of it. May you say every day your "yes" to God's plans with the same humility with which the Blessed Virgin said her "yes"." -Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI
