Today I confess my life as I was confused after a Mental Health Center in New Jersey failed to treat a breakdown that I had after being rejected by a woman. I came clean and decided to get professional help and treatment for the depression I had. However, I got recommended to an ignorant quack who acted like I was unaware of my situation and was giving lay advice instead of offering treatment for my problem.
In fact he never even tried to diagnose my problem but instead acted like I was not ill and said that I need to move on and that I was lazy and basically wanted to dwell on sadness instead.
I know its different than my usual podcasts, but I feel that may be why this day and age we are full of confused folks who result in violence to resolve their difference as the physiatry industry is no longer treating mental illness as they should. They just offer meds or advice that a lay person can give and I feel that is a great problem we all face today.
What is Divine Mercy Sunday? Well each year now many churches celebrate it as it allows us to focus on God's love for us to end the Easter Octave with the fulfillment of what happened last week on the cross.
God is so merciful he offers us another chance! His love is endless is why we are saved. We have even more this Sunday as special indulgences are given if we receive two Sacraments that Jesus gave us while keeping ourselves in the state of Grace!
In this episode I dive down deep into what the Divine Mercy Sunday is and why we celebrate it.
What is the Passion? It is the act of giving at Calvary 2,000 years ago when Jesus let himself be handed over to sinners to die for sinners. He gave himself for us and we should be most grateful as it was love that saved all of us for not getting what we truly deserve.
Holy Week starts this Sunday and we read from Scripture of all that takes place on Good Friday. We prepare ourselves for our Lord to die, and then resurrect soon afterwards. We now reflect on what we need and we examine and meditate on what we as Christians need to be doing to be in check with all the Sacred Mysteries.
This one is long, but it puts you in the mood for love and to be charged up for our Lord and Savior who we long for and want to know more about. You will be in the mood, I guarantee for this Easter to come and love the Lord more than you did before once you listen to this!
No its not about being stoned from drugs or alcohol! It is about instead of what they used to do to adulterers back in Ancient Israel. Of course Jesus is God and he said from the moment the woman was brought out into the middle of the community as stated in the Gospel that he does not condemn the woman's bad act.
We are all sinners and we should not condemn others as God does not as Jesus showed not only the Scribes or Pharisees but us too.
What is the Prodigal Son? Other than it being a biblical story, it has more to us as, like everything Jesus told us, has a special meaning.
Today I inspire you with Scripture, Prayer, and Discussion about faith! Faith is the essence, but are we truly deserving of it?
Well God's ways are not our ways as we would be in trouble, however it is great we have a God who looks at us with compassion.
Repent! You will here about it in the Gospel for mass on Sunday. All you have to do is turn around and face the other way and do the opposite of what you are doing!
If you face the Lord already then keep at it! Don't go back, but we all have times we are not pleasing the Lord, so we all need to repent! Salvation depends on it for you!
Transfigure means to transform from one to another. Some of the disciples got to see Jesus transform before their very eyes! They witnessed our Savior talk to Elijah and Moses and heard the voice of our Father say "This is my beloved Son, listen to HIM!"
What do we do each day to transform ourselves to be like Christ? What does this mean for Lent? Why is Lent here and why do we need it? Well today I go over some interesting things said in the Gospel that may help you understand.
