                Sin and unhappiness

                St. Thomas Summa summarized &
                        written here by Martin J. Healy

                "Deliberate malice in the will makes
                    a sin more evil ...

                The cold-blooded traitor sins more
                    than the soldier who betrays
                    his comrades under torture.

                The damage done by a sinful act will
                    also affect the seriousness of
                    a sin...

                    A sinful act is a human act.
                    As a human act it is a voluntary
                        act.
                    Sin comes then chiefly from the
                        will of man.

                    But it can be found also in human
                        reason and the sense appetite
                        in so far as these human
                        powers are inclined to be
                        moved by the will to actions
                        in the pursuit of good or evil.

                    Sin therefore is a disease of man as
                        man. This is a frightening thing
                        about sin.
                        It is like a cancerous growth
                        in the human personality
                        precisely where it is most human.

                    It eats away gradually a man's control
                        over his own human actions
                        in the pursuit of happiness.

                    A cancerous growth in the body may
                        begin in a less important part
                        of the body. But it will grow
                        until it prevents the working
                        of a vital organ such as the
                        lungs, or brain or digestive
                        system and so lead to the
                        death of the body.

                    Sin is a cancerous growth in the
                        soul of a man. If allowed
                        to grow it will ultimately
                        prevent man from attaining
                        happiness. And the failure
                        to attain happiness is the death
                        of man as man."

 

                From today's Mass

 

Hebrews 12: 4-7, 11-15

In the fight against sin, you have not yet had to keep fighting to the point of bloodshed.

Have you forgotten that encouraging text in which you are addressed as sons?

    My son, do not scorn correction
        from the Lord,
    do not resent his training,
    for the Lord trains those he loves,
    and chastises every son he accepts.

Perseverance is part of your training; God is treating you as his sons. Has there ever been any son whose father did not train him?

Of course, any discipline is at the time a matter for grief, not joy; but later, in those who have undergone it, it bears fruit in peace and uprightness. So steady all weary hands and trembling knees and make your crooked paths straight; then the injured limb will not be maimed, it will get better instead. Seek peace with all people, and the holiness without which no one can ever see the Lord. Be careful that no one is deprived of the grace of God and that no root of bitterness should begin to grow and make trouble; this can poison a large number.

 

Mark 6: 1-6  

Leaving that district, he went to his home town, and his disciples accompanied him. With the coming of the Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and most of them were astonished when they heard him. They said, 'Where did the man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been granted him, and these miracles that are worked through him? This is the carpenter, surely, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joset and Jude and Simon? His sisters, too, are they not here with us?' And they would not accept him. And Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is despised only in his own country, among his own relations and in his own house'; and he could work no miracle there, except that he cured a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. He made a tour round the villages, teaching.

 

                They said they knew Jesus' Mother and
                    His kinsfolk — they were familiar
                    to them. They said is He
                    not a carpenter —

                    Where did Jesus get all this wisdom

                    They wanted to put Jesus in a BOX

                    They didn't have faith —

                    It says in the scripture
                        that Jesus was amazed
                        at their lack of faith

                    When we look at Sunday's Gospel
                          

Mark 1: 29-39

And at once on leaving the synagogue, he went with James and John straight to the house of Simon and Andrew. Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed and feverish, and at once they told him about her. He went in to her, took her by the hand and helped her up. And the fever left her and she began to serve them.

That evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were sick and those who were possessed by devils. The whole town came crowding round the door, and he cured many who were sick with diseases of one kind or another; he also drove out many devils, but he would not allow them to speak, because they knew who he was.

In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house and went off to a lonely place and prayed there. Simon and his companions set out in search of him, and when they found him they said, 'Everybody is looking for you.' He answered, 'Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns, so that I can proclaim the message there too, because that is why I came.' And he went all through Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out devils.

    

                We see Jesus healing the sick

                We see Jesus casting out demons

                Jesus:

                    Where is your faith —

                    I have given you all this wisdom
                        in these writings and you
                        challenge Me.

                    I have given you My Movement to
                        reach the world
                    I have given you the Priestly Newsletter
                        over 6 1/2 million in 14 years

                    I have asked you to spread My
                        Prayer Chapters and the
                        writings of Fr. Joe and Fr. Carter
                        to the priests and hierarchy

                    I have called you to see the image
                        of Mary
                        God the Father painted on this
                            building

                The covenant

                The sign of the rainbow

 

Genesis 9: 8-15

    God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, ‘I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’ 

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.

                My covenant with man

                    the sign of the rainbow

                February 17, 1994 — the first Blue Book Meeting

  

Genesis 7: 11-12

    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. And heavy rain fell on earth for forty days and forty nights.

   

                I called this retreat
                I called this 5th
                I call you to join in too

                I want you to pray with all your
                    heart as they pray from
                    the building where God the
                    Father put the image of Mary and
                    My face is there

                    My crucifix from Felix is there

                Pray — be empowered

                        I am God
                        I healed the sick
                        I am almighty

                        I want prayer - united —
                            praying for the priests, the
                            Church and the world

                        NOW

                        Singing Psalms

                        Singing Scripture

                You say "I give my heart to Jesus and
                                Mary with you in love." —

                Mean that —

                    Love in singing the scripture
                    Love in praying the prayers

                A religious is a witness to others

                A witness of your love for God
                A witness of your love for others

                Pray to the Holy Spirit to fill you

                    You have a sharing in My life —

                        Rejoice

                    Let your love show

                    Pray for an increase in FAITH

                    Believe   Believe

                    Think about the souls today in the
                        world that need your prayers and
                        need to change

                Pray with all your heart for the renewal
                    of the Church and the world and
                    for your beloved priests and
                    religious to be witnesses —

                    to be light to the world —

                    to show the world the love of
                        Christ in them

                    I live and dwell in the graced,
                        baptized soul — abundantly

                Even when you see My gifts in
                    My Church — you give into negative
                        thinking instead of spreading
                        the Good News as you were
                        commissioned in baptism

                LIFE — LIFE

                I am the Bread of Life

                    I give you Myself in the Eucharist

                    I give you My Word

                You are witnesses of the religious
                    life —
                    are you full of fear, distrust,
                        negativity

                You have been given a "special gift"
                    to tell the world about the intimate
                    love I desire of My precious
                    souls.

                I loved My souls so much — I died
                    for you

                Song: A Song from Jesus

                I died for your sins —

                Your sins of slothfulness, jealousies,
                    possessiveness, envy,
                    seeking dominance were written
                    on My back — the stripes

                I paid for your selfishness — giving
                    into satan — disobedience to
                    superiors - I put before you to
                    guide you doing the will of God —

                Pairing up against authority to cause
                    discord and disobedience — to
                    get power — give into satan —
                    untrust — to be a devil in
                    the cart pulling at the ones
                    doing My work —

                    instead of leading and praying
                        with a willing spirit in
                        you — filled with the Holy
                        Spirit —

                        You say yes to satan —
                and not yes to God's will —

                You have been called to a humble
                    holy life —
                    not combat against the
                    Father's will —
                    the Father's vision

                Living the Gospel —

                Living out the Word

                I have given you the Bread of Life

                    (1) the Eucharist
                    (2) My Word

                Witness to others your constant
                    seeking to be more and more
                    like God

                Witness to others how you are
                    building My Kingdom with
                    your lives —

                I want hearts on fire for love of
                    Me — I give you My love letters
                    in the Blue Book, My Prayers,
                    the Mass Book — Prayer for
                    Intimacy with the Lamb so
                    You would grow in our
                    love affair

                Your strength is in God

                Your strength is in your relationship
                    with God —

                Do all you do for Me —

                Say I do this for Jesus —

                I live for Jesus

                Jesus loves me

                Jesus is my Spouse

                Quit trying to control things

  

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

    

                Read the Daily Writing —

                    If you loved Me and
                    were busy about Our love
                    affair you would love the
                    scriptures — read the Blue Books

                You have a love

                It is Me

                Love makes the world go round

                You give into satan and
                are not busy about the Word,
                    the writings because My
                    love affair with you is
                    NOT your top priority

                Be dedicated to the growth
                    of My Kingdom, praying
                    deeply for the priests,
                    the Church and the world —

                The Church is My bride —

                I want your hearts not cold —
                    in love — on fire for
                    love of Me and My Church —
                    witnessing to the world —

                This is My building

                This is My message

                This is My retreat to teach
                    you —

                You must be docile and ready
                    to be taught — not thinking
                    you know it all and plan to
                    prove it —

                    That is your pride —

                It stunts your growth in
                    growing to be what I
                    want you to be —
                    My bride —

                I love you ——
                        Jesus
