REUNIONText Box: Have you ever entered a Church where the Eucharist is present and simply felt love for God? If so, you were responding to the love God has for you, emanating from His physical presence in the Eucharist. Those who have not had this experience have not had it, not because God does not love them, but for some other reason. Perhaps their perception of their own harmony with God’s will is not quite as accurate as they believe it to be.

When you feel that love for God, do you tell God? Do you tell Him, “I love You”? Are you prompted to actually say, “Have I told you lately that I love You,” not as a question but as an expression of that which wells up within you, flowing with the joyful calm and peace of spiritual well-being? Or, perhaps it wells from a desire to be in harmony with God and the realization you need to be re-tuned.

Do you sometimes have that feeling during the middle of the day, or near Text Box: ~ GOD, HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY THAT I LOVE YOU ~

From Metropolitan Archbishop Lee S. Mc Colloster, S.S.B.
To the flock entrusted into my care:


A very popular song contains the phrase, “Have I told you lately that I love You.”

With a few modifications that song could easily be a song of worship to the true God.

Text Box: THE VIRGIN MARY’S MEASURE OF LOVE FOR GOD IS A TRIUMPH OVER SIN WHICH WE ARE ABLE TO ATTAIN

The special position of The Blessed Ever Virgin Mary has been the topic of extensive theological discussions and her status has been referred to as a special privilege granted to her by God.

While many of those weighty and knowledgeably done theological works make reference to an extremely important factor very few dwell on that factor in its simplicity.

But we are simple and will contemplate this factor in a simple manner. The factor is love and we will not cloud the mind distinguishing simple love as it exists as a simple facet of being human and Divine Love called Agape Love or Charity.
Text Box: The first ten amendments to the Constitution of The United States of America are known as The Bill of Rights. They were ratified effective December 15, 1791.

The very First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The United States Constitution actually imposes even more stringent restrictions on the power of the President - the executive branch - and on the Supreme Court - and all of the court systems and structures - than it places on Congress.

Constitutional reality is not that there is a separation of Church and state. Rather, it is that state, the government, any government or governmentally authorized agency or activity, is unable to effect any religion nor is the government, any government, able to establish a religion.

But there is nothing to prohibit a religion, any religion, from effecting the government of the United States of America, or any government, at any level.
