Holy Father encourages us to read the Bible this summer and I say go one further and read a little each day any time of the year.

You would be surprised at how it comes alive for each and every one of us.  If you can join a Bible study at your local parish or consult Father about this subject in your diocese.

Recently I bought a Catechism as a gift for a young person completing their first Sacraments.  I also bought the same family a family bible.

I recommend if you can donate a bible to your local parish.  Or get involved in a Bible drive for our Confirmation classes.   Or just donate a bible one at a time when one has the resources.

Our children should be able to carry and understand the faith.  If your youth in your area are interested in World Youth Day and your willing to send them out as our Lord asked then encourage them in their planning and fundraising for this event.  The next event is 2013.

I also recommend You Cat or the Catechism of the Catholic Church as a companion study with the bible and a donatable book to your parish and youth.

If you can buy a good bible which you can aford which will last a long time.  Investing in about $20.00 or so is the least recommended price.

I found some which are reasonable at Tan Books which is an excellent Catholic source or at least start here:

See also my blogroll for The Catechism of the Catholic Church for reference.

See also the Vulgate Bible in my blogroll for study.

Caution:  St. Jerome said “Ignorance of Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.”

Today we are seeing so many political sides and ideologies.  The world wants you to believe that the Catholic Church is wrong about everything even the truth.

Repeatedly I say to you all:  She (The Bride) is in the world not of the world.   This is the key and the dissenters just arent getting it or understanding this concept.   She cannot go against what our Lord has put assunder sort of speak.   The world wants us to drop the cross and pretend there is no suffering or that suffering must be taken out of the picture.  As human beings we will always suffer in some form or another, He will always ask us by our own free will to pick up the cross and follow me.   These are your walking orders.  Take them or leave them.  God gave us the free will to serve or not to serve.

My hope is that we will all serve and that our souls will belong to Him and not evil.  It is not easy and it never has been and will never be easy.  That is why we have each other.

She has walked with the truth for over 2000 years.  This law still includes some of the law in the Hebrew (5) books of the bible.   These truths have never changed in thousands of years.  These books are the Old and New Testaments.

We believe Jesus Christ is the Annoited One promised in the Old Testament.  He never came to change these laws taught by Moses passed to us by I AM—GOD Himself. He was sent to fulfil that law of the Old Testament and make things new.

This is a simple article because brothers and sisters I am a simple laywoman.  I do not have any certificate proclaiming I’m a bible scholar.  I am a simple, human frail person as everyone else is since the time our parents began from “the Fall”.

I suffer from these human frailties as do we all struggle.   Nothing has changed today in our so-called modern times we just got new technological “toys”.  The church didn’t change her precepts from Christ.  They stay the same in season and out of season.

This does not give us the Freedom to do what we want to do but to do what we aught to do.

This is posted on this blog in the wake of the suffering of our brothers and sisters of Norway.  May our Lord give them love, compassion and understanding at this time.  My heart goes out to all of their families.

Anarchy is not the way to change or the way to help human suffering in this world.  This is not true Freedom.

This is the definition of Anarchy:

  • Absence of any form of political authority.
  • Political disorder and confusion.
  • Absence of any cohesive principle, such as a common standard or purpose.

ETYMOLOGY:
New Latin anarchia, from Greek anarkhi, from anarkhos, without a ruler : an-, without ; see
a-1 + arkhos, ruler ; see -arch

I will not go into a long assessment of the above. I will try to make this simple as I can in my understanding of Jesus Christ when He was confronted by the authorities.

He never questioned their authority.  He simply told them that they could not crucify Him unless the order had been given to them by the Father.  The Lord submitted to the high authority of His Father for our sakes.  He never questioned the authority of the time He only proposed the Kingdom of God.

It could also be summed up as this in our Lord’s words:  Give unto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s and give unto God what is God’s.

The first martyrs of the early church understood this maybe even better than we do today.

The only explaination I can give all of you is to get yourself a good Catholic Bible and join a good bible study in your local church. If this is impossible or difficult in your parish (Nothing with God is impossible.) and Father has the time you might want to approach him with your questions.  He maybe able to direct you in the right direction to understanding in our Lord Jesus and His commands.

I have many resources on this blog and will try to keep adding as I go along.  God Bless you All.

Long live the Bride and may we serve her and she us.
