Finally my 1st Communion in the Catholic Church

My family left the Catholic Church when I was 9.  Since then, I became actively involved in various Protestant churches/movements for 30 years. At the age 21, I became a licensed minister and moved to Russia to smuggle Bibles into the Soviet Union and plant churches there. After a year and a half, I returned back to the States to receive my parents' and church's blessing to marry my Polish Catholic fiancée, Iwona Bednarz-Major. After a long 18-month proving period, I finally received my parents' blessing but not from my original sending church because the pastor recommended that I should marry someone else. Well shortly after marriage, I got ordained with a different church; and we then moved back overseas to serve as missionaries in Russia, Poland, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.  It's been a wild and wonderful journey; but now I am finally returning home to the Catholic Church.

He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed: and My blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, abideth in Me, and I in him." - Jesus

I live in this city = zyje w tym miescie

This is part of the program of the 25th anniversary of the Catholic Charismatic fellowship, called "HalleluJah", which Iwona helped start and lead in Wroclaw, Poland  The first day will be kicked off by an outdoor evangelism event in the very center of Wroclaw with concerts, multi-media presentations, games for children, etc.

Six days ago, some friends in Poland took up an offering so that our family would be able to attend. With their donation, I was able to purchase four tickets for Iwona and our three children today!  They will be leaving on September 30th.

I am now praying for the funds to come in within five days for my ticket and our expenses.  I would like to shoot a documentary of this historic event.

From Poland will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming

St. Faustina Kowalska reported seeing a merciful Jesus, with beams of red and white light shining from his heart. In her diary, the cloistered mystic described a 1935 vision in which she was told the write down this prayer as protection from divine judgment: "Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."

Some of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy thought the uneducated nun was unstable and the Vatican shunned her writings. But her visions impressed a young priest in nearby Krakow named Father Karol Wojtyla, who rose through the ranks from professor to bishop, archbishop and cardinal. Finally, he became Pope John Paul II.

The Polish pope was a champion of Faustina's "Divine Mercy" devotions. He testified: "The message of Divine Mercy has always been near and dear to me." In a sense, he said, it "forms the image of this pontificate." On April 30, 2000, John Paul II canonized her as St. Faustina.

It was in 1937, a year before she died of tuberculosis, the 32-year-old nun had another apocalyptic vision of Jesus.

She wrote: "As I was praying for Poland, I heard the words: I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming."

this election day

everything you hold sacred

will need your vote

vote your conscience

Biden and Pelosi, both Catholics, were asked about their stand on the issue of life at conception during recent TV interviews. Their answers which did not align with the teaching of the Catholic church, prompted a response from US Catholic bishops by publishing Fact sheet on pro-life and Church teaching on abortion.
