Thought for the Day & Reminder!

I keep hearing subtle variations on this quote:  "We are spiritual beings having a human experience."  How about this variation:

We are connected beings having a separate experience.

Think about it.

Don't forget our final Fatima Family Holy Hour for World Peace, this Friday!  I will be at the World Apostolate of Fatima in Asbury, NJ, but the show will go on right here on this blog!  Don't miss it!  And please add your voice to our comments-thank you, you will be blessed!  CFM:)  PSSpread the word and think about giving Our Lady a special gift for this momentous occasion!

RIP Patrick Tracy

Please pray for the repose of the soul of dear Patrick Tracy, my first cousin, who passed in his sleep, very unexpectedly, last Sunday.  He was 64 years old and lived a lifetime of charity towards others.  He had been the Director of Campus Ministry at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, NY and taught religion and social studies there.  He was involved in countless charitable organizations over the years.  His funeral on Thursday at Holy Family in HIcksville, was the most well-attended funeral I have ever seen.  He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.  Please pray for his family as well, at this time.  Much thanks.

Life is so short-let's make the most of it, to win souls for God!

Thought for the Day....

Life is like a casino.

It's always rigged in favor of the house.

I normally don't like explaining myself too much, because I never want to insult the intelligence of my audience and I also like to get people to think for themselves. What does evil do?  It enslaves, it destroys the self.  Good seeks to empower.  It seeks no power for itself, only to assist others.  I am very much of the mind...."If you wish to feed a man for a day, give him a fish.  If you wish to feed him for a lifetime, teach him how to fish."  However, I'd like to just say a few words about the above sentiment.  There is another saying, which Pope Francis is also acquainted with, which illustrates well, what I mean.  These are his words from a press conference two years ago, “God always forgives, we men forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives.  If you give her a slap, she will give you one."  This has everything to do with the search for the "authentic life."  Okay, I'll leave the rest to you and the Holy Ghost.....
