Beauty of Confession

The beauty of confession.

Am not a perfect person that is why I confess my sins to the priest.

My sin may be the same as always but never did i allowed it to be part of me. I fall down but raise up with a better armor when i confesses.

I know that you confess, it gives you grace and strengthen your spiritual life.

As I regularly confess, it becomes a way of life. Not a way of life as a sinner but a way of life wanting to be purified. always getting ready to his kingdom.

In my life, there are incidents that the Lord saved me from death.

This is a sign that out Lord has a purpose for me and that i have a mission.

It is always in my prayers that our Lord leads me in my spiritual journey.

And the Lord answer my prayer with my experience in confession.

This is my story.

Many years ago I went to confession at St. Paul Church in San Pablo during our afternoon break, went back to work and left the clinic around 5:30 pm for home.

As I was driving home I thought of passing by Pinole to buy some pillow, don’t know what happened but accidentally i exited Hilltop mall and went to Walmart.

As I look around the pillow section, I saw the lady in-front of me at the confession area some hours ago.

she was assigned at that section where they display pillows hmmm

When I went near her , she remembered me at the church, I asked her if she is involved in any church activity. She told me that she was a member of Single for Christ in the Philippines and was actually looking for a community.

when She told me that this accidental meeting was an answered prayer when i told her that i am a member of couples for christ.

Days later I introduced her to a group of singles for christ

As i reflect on whats going on in my life, our Lord is connecting me to a lot of people and together we becomes a witness of Gods presence today.

As I listened to a you tube video about temptation, I would say thats me.

A warrior battling myself from my sins and after all this struggles and overcome this sin. There is a spirit that will dwell in you. There is God that will guide you and it happens when i confess.

only in a pure heart that our Lord speaks to our heart.

Oh how lovely is the song. create in me a clean heart. It starts when we confess and received the absolution from the priest.

Amen.

New Journey

start a Spiritual Journey to a new life with Our Lord Jesus Christ as He resurected from the death.

His suffering shall be nothing if we will not change.

A true happy easter is not only a symbolism, it is a reminded for us to transform and be happy with God as we received Him in His true presence in the Holy Eucharist

· Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed. ..

Prayers-

Yes, Lord heal our brokeness bring me and my family to your light for a new beginning leaving the pains the anger the hate, bitterness to a light full of love.

Heal us physically, mentally and spiritually, heal us from our sins and protect us from evil

AMEN.

Thirst

My Spiritual best friend was asked to talk about Thirst with the youth and this is what came with our conversation.

draft as she wrote it while talking to her on the phone.

◦ I thirst By Mr. Atilano

The world can not satisfy what we want and we keep of seeking things that will satisfy us. Things that will make us happy. There is God the living 💦 water you will not be thirsty.

Deacon Steve: The Bible is there to read but who reads it ? The Bible is the Word of God to give us the direction of life through the Word of God grabbing things we need. Be thirsty for his words and drink his words “thrist” you get everything in the Bible and live it :

Remember after a big problem was solved by our friend, she said i know there is God and want to learn more about God… mercy loving patience gift of the Holy Spirit:

What do you thrist ? Cellphone or God ? Because he is jealous and wants you to love him more than anything in this world, once you have his grace you won’t need anything else because of his Love and Grace.

Medicine, diet, workout, good job good money but nothing can replace the world God has given you.. you must thirst first to satisfy yourself which is the Lord.

What is the ultimate of Gods gift ? lOVE that no one can give you nothing above Love Jesus Christ because he died for our sins: all the saints had a good relationship with the Lord and Mama Mary as teens we experience something different because the level of thrist depends on situation and desire to find GOD.

Who will help you make this happen? THE HOLY SPIRIT that will help you in your search for God, for wisdom and explore you to a lot of place and introduce you to new people by saying Start to a good relationship with the Lord.

First time the lord wants is to say yes as he knocks in your heart in every situation he is knocking during success and deepest part of your life sufferings. A lot of entry points of the Lord through our heart .. say yes .. ask and you shall receive . The NUNS thirst for God that’s why they are there they are not looking for any other things because their focus is the lord and holy Eucharist and forget about the best things in life walking in the street in danger of ones a son or daughter of a millionaire but choose to believe in God. They found God in their hearts 💕 but we need to find it and open it .

Just pray and ask the Lord to enter your heart first by confession your sins, anger and unbelief.

Evil is for real

n the late 90 i was at home when i heard people shouting screaming as if there was a fire. they knock at my door asking me for help. i was a councilor of the barangay and a eucharist minister.

Went to the corner of our street. Mayapis and sampaloc and i saw women lying on the street being subdued by people being possessed.

I got a water put a salt and blessed that water using words from a scriptural book. Blessing of the water.

2 ladies on opposite sidewalk along sampaloc st. and one inside an katabi ng apartment na yan.

people mga masa was doing their own thing as what they see in the movies or tv.

sprinkle the water and could see its effects. later it calm them down.

went inside that apartment the lady was so strong. we prayed the rosary and wanted to bite so she could be release.

in area near this place there filipino women go to train themselves cultural dance and nihingo japanese language so they could go to work in Japan.

The Community patrol ‘tanod’ alarm other barangays. here comes the spiritism people. herbolario from i guess Tejeros or barangay singkamas.

we have them ride in the van and brought them in the church.

it was very late in the evening. i just remember giving them or putting blessings holy oil and calm everyone down.

we all went home and the ladies went back to the apartment in normal state.

next day the herbolario went back to burn incensed at the house.

all back to normal.

Dream House

People work work and work but unfortunately, some people forget that the most important things that we need in this dream house are members of the family loving, caring, understanding and supporting each other.

this can be achieved if we make Jesus the center of our life.

We are not a perfect family but we made it through from all these years.

So praise and thank you Lord for giving us a community that has strengthened me, my wife Carol and my daughter Joyce

The Lord opened his door to us through the Couples for Christ.

Boldly, I would like to encourage my facebook friends to check and see what is there in this Couples for Christ community.

Maybe this is the call of the Lord for you and your family.

May the Lord touch your hearts and that He answers all your prayers.

Together let us celebrate and praise God now and forever.
