My relationship with the Holy Ghost
For those who wish to criticize the title of this blog, I remind you of the opening homily of vat 2. and subsequent instructions the Popes have given since. "This is a pastoral council it will not change the dogmas and doctrines of the Church"
Since 1963 no one can possibly believe these Papal directives have been accepted or are acceptable by many hierarchs, especially those who study the Church. Bishops have quickly written their own dialog with God. So many good things were and have been jettisoned. Not wanted on voyage used to be stamped on the military and civilian baggage as the military and immigration ships left Britain. Now as the Barque of St Peter is still sailing we see the same thoughts and definitive actions from the Democratic People of God. The Holy Spirit from the time of Augustine and in prayers from ages ago named the Holy Ghost as the Holy Spirit of the Father and the Son. I personally see no reason to change perfectly good prayers and words for something that does not describe fully the relationships in the personalities of the Most Holy Trinity. I also abhor the new meaning in the world today, a new understanding, even in the Church among those who should know better,I refer to our relationship with the Holy Spirit, which is the Love of the Father and the Son. It seems today we are speedily becoming "reformed" and now believe we acquire this love and once baptized, a ritual of many definitions today, and we cannot loose Him. St. Basil wrote in his homily on the Holy Spirit if you can find an original translation, "It is easy to loose the Holy Spirit and so hard to reclaim Him".
Let me return to what is a problem to so many my relationship with the Author of Life, The Holy Spirit that created us, that through sanctifying grace saves us, that through the supernatural love of God sustains us and
inhabits the interior chamber of the soul when through the ritual of Sacramental Confession and Penance reconciles us to God, the Church and our neighbors.
I wrote on January 14th this year of the prayer I received from the Woman I know as Our Lady of the Healing Waters of Life, which through the most Holy Name, Jesus gives one a knowledge of the state of one's soul if we were to be judged right then. Jesus has three things He can give us right now if He is so inclined. Heaven, Purgatory or nothing. He hesitates at this time to give us hell unless we are so far removed from His grace that to return to Him we have to do violence to our mentality, in order to return to Him, thus receiving internally His and His Father's love, the indwelling Holy Spirit. This I might mention was the attitude of Mary Magadalen
The next part of the prayer mentions the third warning. I asked and thought of two things. I have often wondered and thought of two things. I know I am not Holy, I am in my nature dreadfully sinful and God has addressed that part with me. I wondered since the prayer comes from and is in the Holy Name of Jesus, am I able to say it for myself. He addressed that part for me. The next is obviously what is the third warning? Well one day reading the Flowers of St Francis I saw that St Francis was the second warning. These warnings come, occurs, I include of course the first, when God has to make a decision due to our communal recalcitrance. Perfect in His fairmindedness, He is gives us out of His Love every chance to change. Jesus Christ was the first, St Francis of Assisi was the second. St Francis was told by Christ that Jesus and Mary offered Francis to God as a sacrifice for the dreadfullness of the world and he became and was acceptable. I guess I did agree to do likewise but I am a dreadful unholy man and unless I change what kind of sacrifice can I be. Although I too through confession and penance I get up from my falls.
Does the prayer work though? Yes, what is frightening is how many get nothing, how many are besides themselves with fright and how few who receive consolations. I am amazed who get these and I am so happy for them.
Another instance for you all to consider. Does God inform me at times of what He wants from me. Yes and sometimes I do not like what I know, His disgust for those whose hubris irritates Him; His views on those who wilfully place their egos before His Will and teachings by the Word; His views on the rationalization of sin by hierarchs who seek to please and not save their flocks. Horrendous are these errors and terrible is His jealousy
What else Has the God shown me? He who is difficult for me to follow because of my ego . Although through the Woman of the Healing Waters I have been given as Mary says so many graces I still lack FORTITUDE. I do not mean I am not brave but am unwilling because of the results to do immediately what is required of me. Here then is something that happened in 1993 or thereabouts. At Mass one Sunday just at the consecration I was told to read Daniel that day. I did, reading Chapter 12 verse 1; I was told loudly and clearly by a voice so strong, "that is you Michael" Read verses 1 to 4 and consider it as I did all these years.
First of all it cannot be Michael the Archangel. To Daniel and the Jews he had already risen and been known.
Is this a time of great distress spiritually and precedes the great disaster that is building upon itself right now?
Is the verse three describing those who through created wisdom live on in the Spirit of Love who is wisdom?
Has the words of Daniel in this case been a secret and now they are revealed, as it is the time to which He refered?
