Arrived here after driving 11hrs from Clear Creek Abbey in Tulsa Oklahoma. We were just in time for dinner (food is very important) with the Knights of the Holy Eucharist. Also the Franciscan Friars of the Eternal Network were there too. They greeted us with so much love and warmth. I feel strongly that we need to show more love and kindness.
Yesterday went to visit Christ the King Abbey. Br. Sebastian gave me some good advice on how to work in the traditional Catholic world. Again I was reminded of the need to go deep into the Heart of Jesus. Above all, we need to be people of prayer. God is real, God is Love, God is helping us right now. How do we go deep into the Heart of Jesus? Through prayer. A deep friendship with quiet time spent before the Blessed Sacrament. Br. Sebastian also reminded us that it is not the number of prayers or which prayer, but the level of faith and love we pray the prayers with. We can not say all the prayers that have been printed in books or on Holy Cards. No we pray the ones that pertain to how God is working in our lives in our individual charism. Pray and have Faith.
Christ is King. Our government will never work until we totally submit to Jesus social kingdom. Laws have been divinely revealed to us through out history in the Old and New Testament in the Bible. So Laws come from above for our good. Human laws can be good or bad. People, both by voting or judges, can pass laws that are against the laws of God. It is not working. Crimes are getting worse and worse, and we pass more and more laws. Prisons are getting fuller and fuller. Under Christendom, there never was so many people in prisons. That is the proof that Catholicism over temporal government is superior to our present government system.
