Prayer of St. Francis de Sales “Have no fear for what tomorrow may bring, The same loving God who cares for you today Will take care of you tomorrow and everyday. God will either shield you from suffering or give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations. Amen.”

“When I am completely united to you, there will be no more sorrow or trials; entirely full of you, my life will be complete” (Saint Augustine, Confessions. 10, 28, 39: PL 32, 795).

“the most unbelievable thing about Miracles is that they happen!” -G. K. Chesterton

Man is by nature and vocation a religious being. Coming from God, going toward God, man lives a fully human life only if he freely lives by his bond with God. 45 Man is made to live in communion with God in whom he finds happiness: “When I am completely united to you, there will be no more sorrow or trials; entirely full of you, my life will be complete” (Saint Augustine, Confessions. 10, 28, 39: PL 32, 795).

“Obedience to Love: “It’s not hard to obey when we Love the One whom we obey.”-Saint Ignatius of Loyola 

“Only Love is real because only Love is Forever. All else is illusion. And, sometimes, especially during times of intense grief and loss, even the brightest, wisest souls lose their light in the shadows of life and become a bit, or a lot, delusional.

We all go through a tunnel of disorientation, confusion, and darkness at some point in our lifetimes. We are, after all, human beings in need of Daily Grace.

Therefore, the most important thing we can and must do everyday is pray, pray for grace, for ourselves and for others. Prayer is medicine. Prayer is healing. Prayer is Love.

Prayer is thanks giving everyday. The more we give thanks the more we are able to love and be loved. So, upon rising, and before resting, let us always welcome the stillness of love and prayer to give thanks for the many blessings we are offered and receive everyday free of charge; to see the sun rise, the flowers bloom, the snow fall, the showers of tears in joy, sorrow and laughter, the poetry of heaven and earth dancing in our heart, the full moon’s light to guide our night, the breath of life, the gift of sight – all gifts granted without a fee, Daily Grace from the Heart of God, to help us see – we can only love love in return – as we will all learn in our final days; only Love is real; only Love is Forever.

Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened into you; into your own heart. All the graces you need to get through the day, the month, the year, and this lifetime are yours, given freely and abundantly, when you ask. For, Love waits, always patiently, to welcome you home, into your own heart.

Only Love Is Real; Only Love Is Forever.

Only Love Is You!”- Shannan Suzzette Taylor


Prayer to Saint Catherine Laboure-

“Whenever I go to the chapel, I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to Him, “Lord, I am here. Tell me what You would have me do.”

If He gives me some task, I am content and I thank Him. If He gives me nothing, I still thank Him since I do not deserve to receive anything more than that. And then, I tell God everything that is in my heart. I tell Him about my pains and my joys, and then I listen.

If you listen, God will also speak to you, for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen. God always speaks to you when you approach Him plainly and simply.

Saint Catherine Laboure, pray for us!


“Am I not here Who Am your Mother?” She said to little Juan Diego.

Let us not build cancerous walls of fear in our minds, or in our spirits, or in our bodies or in our families, or in our communities, or in our countries or in our world but let us work together to build bridges of Faith that allow us all to grow in Love and Peace and Unity, strong in the fabric of Truth. Only Love is Real. Leaving no one child of God left behind, anywhere, any time, ever. Let us be what we are all called to be in Truth. Let us be Love, for only Love is real. Only Love is Forever. Let us be united in Peace in Love in the Whole Mystical Body of Christ, honoring one another in Truth, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother, and the Mother of God.

Let us create together, let us grow together, let us hope together, let us share this world with One Heart, with Love, Together.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of the Americas, Our Lady of Peace, pray for us and for our world! Amen.

“To Love As Love Sees Us”

The sun came up this morning, as it does every  morning whether we see it through the clouds of rain in our hearts or acknowledge it as the Light of Love in us or not, it rises just for us. It rises within us too as we sense the surge of life flow into our limbs often stiff from slumber.

This golden beauty rises and radiates life giving love to everything and inspires hearts, both open and hardened and set to rust, to see beyond the mundane of our daily routines, if only for a moment, to look up into the sky, beyond our small narrow selves, and into the eyes of the immense Heart and power of Love.

Everyday we are offered a place at the banquet of praise of beauty, of truth, of goodness, and of Love. Everyday we are given an opportunity to hold the Heart of God in us. Everyday we are offered the grace to be alive, whether we are good or bad, sinners or saints, everyday we are loved through the Light, the warmth, the goodness of our Father.

Everyday, whether we accept it or not or are able to receive it fully into our hearts or not,  we must understand at some point in our lives, this truth to be self evident, that no matter what we have done or not been able to do for ourselves or for others, no matter how we have caused harm or been harmed by others, no matter the reason we may see ourselves or others as unlovable, we all, in fact, still are Loved.

We cannot have Peace if we first do not have love, and we cannot receive love if we do not believe in Love. We must always always believe in Love, for in truth, Love is all we are, all we ever can be and all we were created for, all we were created by, and all we are created through. There is no life without Love. We all are here together in this multicultural world, because the sun came up another day to help us see one another, as Love sees us. Radiantly Beautiful and Good.
