How to Recite the Holy Rosary in Audio…

Attention all Christian Warriors, here is a link that recites the Holy Rosary out loud.

( ). It gives you the ability to recite it as if you were there amongst other believers. It is very well done and I highly recommend it for anyone who will be with me in the coming weeks on the program, “My Prayer Closet”. For devout Christians that already know the prayers, than use this link to help you to stay focused as you meditate on each bead.

" The Holy Rosary "

For those that maybe new or newer to the process of understanding the way the rosary is recited, than this will be an excellent way to train your self so that when we start to pray the beads than you will be able to not only keep up, but also have a deeper understanding of why the Holy Rosary is prayed. So please folks, I am connecting this link here for you. So that you will be comfortable in reciting it with others every Wednesday evening at 8:00 pm (EST).

On ( ). It will still be a few more weeks of preparation with the teaching of the mysteries before we start to pray the actual rosary on a weekly bases. So again folks use this time to aid you to a more quality and ever prayerful relationship with the Holy Trinity and for that matter the whole Holy Family. And always remember that reciting the Holy Rosary is not just a “Catholic” thing, for it truly is a “Christian” thing to do. It gives you the ability and power to show God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit how much you love them, respect them and worship them all for giving you the gifts of Love, Hope and Faith. Most of all to help you to grow into a better person, a better Christian and a better follower of the life of Christ Jesus.

If you have questions than please message me and I’ll get in touch with you… Bishop Andrew

Warriors, This is a re-post in reference to my blog, A cause worth fighting for part 1 & 2… I thought you might want to read. It hits at the heart of the matter…

Gangs Aren’t The Only Ones Glamorizing Murder, Or Proud Of Themselves For Murdering

Some people are more prone to murder than others.  Gang members, having grown up living in and around a circle of violence, probably all their lives, see death and the killing of others for the sake of their gangs as normal as eating and breathing.  We – we who actually are as normal as eating and breathing – look upon the actions of gang members with derision, disgust and outrage.  We tend to support laws that make it hard for gang members to operate.  And we certainly support laws that punish gang members when they do commit crimes, especially violent crimes like murder.  We certainly do not look upon murder by gang members as justification for the lifestyle they lead.  Nor do we look upon murder by gang members, who murder rival gang members, as justification for having crossed into one another’s “territory”.  In fact – do we ever look upon murder committed by gang members with understanding, compassion, empathy, sympathy or justification?  Do we ever seek to protect the “rights” of gang members to kill one another?  Do we ever attempt to grant “rights” for gang members to kill one another?  If not – why?

If gang members must kill one another to survive in their own world; if gang members must kill one another to show superiority and who is in, and who has, “control”; if gang members must kill or risk being killed themselves (a sort of self-defense); if gang members must kill one another to preserve the integrity and the “health” of their gangs; if gang members killing one another is mostly a “private” affair between one gang and another; if gang members killing one another is only hurting themselves, and that is the decision they “choose” to live by – then why are any of us so overly concerned whether or not gangs members are killing one another?  Why do we waste time, energy and taxes dollars trying to stop gangs from operating by arresting them, putting them on trial and then in jail?  Why do we pass all types of restrictive legislation that makes it harder to be in a gang, and to make committing a crime while in a gang, especially murder, more harsh, more difficult, more painful?  And – why, when one gang member kills another gang member, do we call that, of all things – murder?  Isn’t that a bit hypocritical, all things considered?

All things like the fact that there are millions of people who have committed murder, who have never been in a gang, and who have the full support of many millions more people, including politicians, judges, entire courts millions of people who will never be arrested, prosecuted or serve one day in jail for having committed murder.  And – many of whom who would not only not hesitate to commit murder again, but would openly brag about it, defend it, celebrate it!

What is the real difference between gang members who commit murder on a street corner or in a back alley and these people who commit murder in a place located near a street corner, and sometimes alsoin a back alley?

Words to live by.

Yesterday evening a young man sent a message in response to a comment I had made earlier in the the day. Below is this two sided conversation and I figured it to be on the mark for the title of this posting.

( My original statement as written ).

He has risen, he will come again to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom will have no end… ARE YOU READY ? HAVE YOU DONE ALL THAT YOU CAN ? OR IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE YOU NEED TO TAKE CARE OF FIRST ?
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…Hosanna in the highest…Amen.

( Justin’s comment because of it ).

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

( Now my response to his remarks ).

Dear Justin, I have thought about your statement. It worries me to see a man   become so cynical towards the Holy Trinity. I’m not sure if this will help you to figure out why God allows things to happen. Except maybe that all things, past, present and future are allowed to happen for our benefit. In order for us to learn and come to the point for our lives that He has set out for us.

I have seen things that never made much since while I was in the moment, but as folks say, hind sight is always 20/20. As we get older the things we experience in our life time adds character to who we become. There are always two ways to look at anything we experience. One is positive and the other is negative or rather to say, one is being optimistic and the other perception is to be pessimistic. Trust me when I say that the negative and pessimistic way is not a path you what to stay on for long. If you do allow it to take over your life you might as well as stand in the middle of a gigantic piece of flypaper. For trust me, when I say, you won’t be going anywhere for quit sometime. It is OK to question why. God wants us to question Him. Just beware that many times we don’t always like the answer we are given. And, we have little choice in the matter either. Acceptance is half the battle of living life to it’s fullest.

In order for us to be able to accept the things that we see, takes three things. That is, in order for us understand the question and answer as to why. What we don’t want to become, is being bitter or cynical about life and what is going on in the world. Christ says that you are in the world but not of the world for when you accept Him, than He gives you a new life. As I like to think of it at times is like traveling parallel to the curb of our old life as we knew it. And thanks be to Christ that he has given us new eyes and a new heart to aid us as we pull away from the curb of our old path and move in the direction He has set forth for us.

Those the three things I mentioned a moment ago are, 1) Love, 2) Hope, and 3) Faith. For without even one of these, you can’t have any of them. And that makes life a whole lot tougher. By holding these three things dear to your heart, than there is no way negativity can win accept you allowing it to. There is however, a second, three things to consider, that being the Holy and blessed Trinity. The Father the Son and their Holy Spirit. For you truly can not have one without the other here either.In your own remarks you are choosing to deny both the opportunity to accept and understand. So don’t worry about the things you can not change but rather change the things you can. In this way you won’t go down a path that leads to no where but pain and suffering. It should be reassuring to know that you are already half way to the point that God has in store for you. And it is always easier to believe that He does exist. You must feel this is true because again of your own statement holds the key to understanding and accepting. It seems that your comment would suggest that you also must believe in Satan as well. So I ask you then, what path would you rather go down?

Just remember always, that God, is the potter and we are the clay. And that faith is the second greatest gift God has given you. The first is life it’s self and it is reenforced by another fact, that being that God loves you more than you will ever love Him. How do I know this to be true. That is easy, one is that I have faith in God and two, that He sent His only begotten Son to redeem us all. That is if you accept Him first into your heart and into your entire life from this point on until you meet again. For He is our only true hope for true happiness in this life we live.

Aha, the gift of life is truly a gift of love. So be patient, and trust that God has your back. Live your life knowing that every moment in your life, he is right beside you. Which means you are all ways by His side as well. That is a pretty cool place to be when you think about it. There should be no other place you should ever want to be. Except by His side for eternity. So smile and make the world wounder what your up to. Besides, when you smile and have faith, love and hope in your life, it really ticks Satan off, and for all the hardships I’ve witnessed in my life, it is comforting to know that I’m making his job a whole lot tougher. In my view that ain’t such a bad thing.

Justin, I hope and pray that my insight to life helps you, but know this for sure, above all things and that is that God will bless you as long as you stay the course he wants you on. Enjoy life Justin, it’s to short not to.

With sincere devotion to God’ glory. Take care, keep your chin up and don’t forget to smile… Bishop Andrew

Why, Easter?

I thought this important enough to repost it from an article from our main ULCworld hq., news paper. Many folks may have forgotten the real reason why we celebrate the Easter Holy Day…. So here is a little reminder of why.

Easter Means Eternal Life

A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.

Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
“But I love them!” cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
“I’ll send my only Son to be the one.”

Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.

On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.
