Hidden People Exposed by God:

As I am moving, I have less time for sitting at the computer as I am packing, cleaning, eating, going to work.
I should be praying. I wish I could be sleeping. But I’m sinful.
But I still manage to write.
For Good or for Bad here is…

Last Week’s SPECTACULAR STORY OF WEEK

Amen I say to you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which she hath done, shall be told for a memory of her.-Matthew 26:13

As Catholics we kick off the month of October with the feast day of a person we might not have heard of, had Jesus not taken her out of the hidden shadows of obscurity. In the late 19th century 15 year old Therese Martin entered the silent closeted walls of Carmel. She entered a hidden life at the same age we adopted out daughter. She started her pious life of prayerful contemplation as a teen and exited her Carmelite and earthly existence as a young adult. She might have been left known only to her family, religious community and God, had her super soaked spiritual memoir not spread beyond the walls of her enclosed environment.

Her added after-death appearances and rose scented miracles helped propel her to saint statius. But God was not content with her being named the greatest saint of modern times. Her mystical fantastical writings pushed her saintly self to that of the rank of Doctor of the Church. That is very great accomplishment for someone confined to one place for the last several years of her life doing nothing but writing, praying, and serving the community in which she lived. Thanks to this young peach of a saint, we know can know and practice her advanced way of approaching and relating to God almighty.

Countless souls have embraced the so-called Little Way of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux in the practice of moral virtue and advanced to sanctity as a result. The Saint describes her Little Way succinctly: “It is the little way of spiritual childhood, the way of trust and absolute self-surrender.-The Little Way of Beauty – OnePeterFive

St. Therese’s feast day is sandwiched in between a whole nother group of people we were very unlikely to know about had it not been revealed in public revelation. These are the angels.  The 3 big angels who warrant a place in holy writ with an actual name get their feast day on September 29th. That is Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. The group of angels assigned personally to protect a particular human being, known as the Guardian Angels, get their day of acknowledgment on October 2. These mysterious beings made of light can cause one to wonder and ponder the existence of those we will never see except in the next phase of our life in eternity.

Of all the questions you might want to ask
about angels, the only one you ever hear
is how many can dance on the head of a pin.

No curiosity about how they pass the eternal time
besides circling the Throne chanting in Latin
or delivering a crust of bread to a hermit on earth
or guiding a boy and girl across a rickety wooden bridge.
Billy Collins, “Questions About Angels” (1991) Questions about Angels

Even more wondrous, ponderous, and unlikely for us to see in this realm of reality is the eternal Son of God wed and intertwined in the hypostatic union of divinity and humanity in the person of Jesus Christ.  When the Word became flesh, He became one of us, with the amazing imperfect body that we all have.

The video below explains scientifically how our material being operates and how it could potentially work better. Watch this video and then grasp how the God who made all the atoms in the material universe and created his earthly form became one of us, with all our flaws and human weaknesses. Note for those who watch this, it talks about evolution, which some devout Catholics may have trouble with, alongside biological realities, which devout Catholics shouldn’t have trouble with. The church’s official position is this…

The Teaching Authority of the Church does not forbid that, in conformity with the present state of human sciences and sacred theology, research and discussions, on the part of men experienced in both fields, take place with regard to the doctrine of evolution, in as far as it inquires into the origin of the human body as coming from pre-existent and living matter – for the Catholic faith obliges us to hold that souls are immediately created by God.-Humani Generis

With that footnote I felt that I had to include, please go on to watch and then contemplate that this is the nature God the Son took and combined with his divine person.

God can take any hidden person, including a poor widow, a hidden prayer warrior, hidden spiritual beings, and his own hidden presence and make it visible and public. Even if your never known by the general public, you will always be known by God.

 A Chance To Do A Work Of Mercy

First and foremost we great you in Jesus name… Kindly we are down of food as soon our kids will sleep hungry … please we are in need $830 food $130 is for rent.it cost $700 to feed our kids monthly..Here it’s the link to Donate https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/MercyForLifeCorp

The Bettinelli Family – Domenico, Melanie, and their five kids Isabella, Sophia, Ben, Anthony, and Lucy – would very much like to come home to a house with walls, floors, and running water before the cold weather comes this fall!
And they need your help. What started as a small bathroom leak has turned into a huge problem that will require the entire house to be re-piped, floors replaced a bathroom, three bedrooms, living room, and dining room, and mold remediation/drywall replacement.
Plus, all seven people and their stuff has to be off the floor and out of the house while this work is being done.
Melanie homeschools the kids and Dom works from home for a Catholic non-profit. Any little bit you can donate not only will help them get their house fixed but will also encourage them and let them know how many people are thinking and praying for them in this extremely stressful time.
