Stand up For Jesus
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Let us pray
O Jesus I Surrender myself to You, You take over. Amen
We make no apology for stating it is time to -
Stand up for Jesus.
The time has come for the Catholic Church to stop pussy footing around to be 'all things to all people'. We must uphold the truth. The truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
It is time for all of us to to stand up for Jesus
Yesterday on Twitter two attempts were made to expel me from Twitter.
My crime - one of harassment. I was accused of waiting for the Holy Fathers tweets each day simply to harass him. On each occasion I asked my accuser to point me to anything I said which was not the truth. I said I had not just the right but the obligation to stand up and profess the true word of God. As yet I have heard nothing from twitter but I am blocked from two sites. Enough said.
It worries me no end that I feel the need to say what I have to say. When Francis became Pope I was blissfully unaware of his background in Argentina and in largely total ignorance of Our Lady's warnings in various apparitions including Fatima if I am honest. In his early years everything seemed normal but then things began which led me to suspect everything was not right. The scandal of McCarrick. That in all probability that what McCarrick was up to was not an isolated incident. Financial scandals in the Vatican, casual interviews which raised questions about traditional Church doctrine. The letters of Archbishop Vigano and research into Our Lady's warnings lead to further concern. If Francis acted or said something to ease my fears it would have helped. The fact that Benedict had taken action against McCarrick only to be overturned by Francis did not help. The Chinese connection and finally Fratelli Tutti.
In the 300 years of modern Freemasonry, the organisation has been based on a "universal fraternity of human beings who call each other brothers and sisters despite their respective creeds, ideologies, skin colour, social background, language, culture or nationality." This principle, the statement read, clashed with "religious fundamentalism" on the part of the Catholic Church, which "issued severe texts condemning the toleration of Freemasonry in the19th century." They issued a statement which said that the pope's most recent encyclical "demonstrates how far away the present Catholic Church is from its former positions. In Fratelli Tutti, the pope embraces Universal Fraternity: the great principle of modern Freemasonry." The Catholic Church and Freemasonry have long been at odds, given their very distinct philosophical and theological differences.
I could go on. But to me Fratelli Tutti leaving aside the above reaises so many questions on the Word of God and Catholic Doctrine that, and may God forgive me if I am wrong I simply cannot sit back and say nothing. By their silence I can only conclude that the majority of Cardinals, Bishops and Priests endorse what the Holy Father has said.
So if I on twitter Stand up for Christ I make no apology. The Book of Revelation tells us that the word of God cannot be changed.
I pray for the Holy Father and the Church. My solace is the comforting words of Jesus that He will be with us for all times and the gates of Hell will not prevail and of Mary who not only told us of these events but what to do.
Honour the Blessed Sacrament
Defend family life
Pray the Rosary.
These I will do and promote. If Fratelli Tutti led us to the Word of God, that in God and through the actions of His Divine Son we can begin to redress the problems of the world what a wonderful document it would have been.
Finally I had a very good Communist friend who sadly passed away some years ago. We often discussed religion - I had my views he had his. I can only imagine what he would be saying to me now - 'see I told you so!'

The Word of God
Luke 11:15-26 - The finger of God has overtaken you
When Jesus had cast out a devil, some of the people said, ‘It is through Beelzebul, the prince of devils, that he casts out devils.’ Others asked him, as a test, for a sign from heaven; but, knowing what they were thinking, he said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is heading for ruin, and a household divided against itself collapses. So too with Satan: if he is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? – since you assert that it is through Beelzebul that I cast out devils. Now if it is through Beelzebul that I cast out devils, through whom do your own experts cast them out? Let them be your judges then. But if it is through the finger of God that I cast out devils, then know that the kingdom of God has overtaken you. So long as a strong man fully armed guards his own palace, his goods are undisturbed; but when someone stronger than he is attacks and defeats him, the stronger man takes away all the weapons he relied on and shares out his spoil.
‘He who is not with me is against me; and he who does not gather with me scatters.
‘When an unclean spirit goes out of a man it wanders through waterless country looking for a place to rest, and not finding one it says, “I will go back to the home I came from.” But on arrival, finding it swept and tidied, it then goes off and brings seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and set up house there, so that the man ends up by being worse than he was before.’
In these difficult days
With joy and gladness we cry out to you, Lord,
and ask you: open our hearts to sing your praises
and announce your goodness and truth.

The Word of The Lord - From the Acts of the Apostles
Galatians 3:7-14 · The sons of Abraham are those who rely on faith
Don’t you see that it is those who rely on faith who are the sons of Abraham? Scripture foresaw that God was going to use faith to justify the pagans, and proclaimed the Good News long ago when Abraham was told: In you all the pagans will be blessed. Those therefore who rely on faith receive the same blessing as Abraham, the man of faith.
On the other hand, those who rely on the keeping of the Law are under a curse, since scripture says: Cursed be everyone who does not persevere in observing everything prescribed in the book of the Law. The Law will not justify anyone in the sight of God, because we are told: the righteous man finds life through faith. The Law is not even based on faith, since we are told: The man who practises these precepts finds life through practising them.Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by being cursed for our sake, since scripture says: Cursed be everyone who is hanged on a tree. This was done so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might include the pagans, and so that through faith we might receive the promised Spirit.
The Lord bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.
The Lord bless you!
Always remember - Jesus loves you.
