Fire devastates the Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee

Dear brothers and sisters, I have sad news this morning.

I have need for urgent prayer for our Ecclesiastical Communion Affiliate Church, The Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee. They have suffered a major loss early this morning via a destructive and devastating fire.

Their entire Church at this hour is a loss. Due to a possible electrical issue cased by the store unit next to them, which is where the fire started and spread, wiping out their storefront community chapel.

Fr. Jason Crowder+ is in contact with me and asking for your prayers at this time. So please keep this wonderful church family and man of God in your prayers and lets help them in whatever way we can, showing our love and support as Christ leads us to do.

I will bring you updates as I get them to keep you all informed. Thank you and bless you. And may God bless our Brothers and Sisters of the Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee in this sorrowful time.

Sincerely IHS and yours,
Patriarch +++Andrew M. B. Patrick

Folks, help us spread the word… At the start of the new year, 2017, Celtic Cross Ministry Inc., and the Celtic Cross Foundation of Ministry will be adding Paid Sponsorship Space to our ministries official websites.

www.celticcrossministry.com and www.christians-refuge-network.com

There will be several areas to advertise your Company, Organization, Trust, Foundation or in the Memory of a loved one, in affiliation with our ongoing efforts to raise funds to help our needs to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the mission placed in our trust here in the USA and around the Globe.

We have been trying to raise funds for Bibles in other languages and dialects. For our mission efforts in Spain, Chile, Russia, Africa, India, Pakistan, the Caribbean Island Basin and Philippine Islands as well as other parts of the world needing the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their languages. So as to help our Clergy, Templar’ and Chaplains work and teach the word of God to those who need to know and learn of His will and ways for their lives.

We also are trying to raise funds to help the Refugee Crises in the Great Lake Region of Africa. Affecting the Burundian people displaced by civil war and political unrest in that country. It is affecting and depleting the limited resources of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. We have the means and connections, we just need your financial support to help save lives and change hearts and minds in this battered and mostly forgotten part of the world.

Our Templar Orders here in the USA and around the World are working on local issues and offer what help they can with very few resources at their disposal to help the needy in their communities. Your sponsorship will go to aid their efforts.

Our Chaplains and Medical Outreach Division need support, as we see our communities and world continue to suffer and struggle when emergencies hit and panic sets in. There is a great need for Chaplains and dedicated men and women with the means to help in getting peoples lives back to a form of normality and show that there are many ways this can be done. Through health education, testing and so much more.

Our Seminary Programs and Churches around the world need help with printed materiel, computers, musical instruments of all types and in many other areas of academia. Even with just the basics to help plant the seed and spread the word of Christ in their regions.

The many orphanages around the world that call upon us for help, for basic things like food, cloths, medical assistance, help with housing and shelter, clean water, school supplies and the such.

This is just some of what this Foundation, Ministry and Church is trying to do to help our fellow man, but we need your help to see our Lord’ vision come true here and around the world.

Now more than ever, with the real threat being a personal attack on Christianity itself, it is so vitally important that we pull together and show our countrymen and the world that Christianity is not the problem but rather, the solution. That by working together, unified in the common goal of showing Christ’ love through our actions, we impact lives, one person at a time. Showing Christ manifested through us to those that may not know Him or even to those that have lost hope in Him. There by bringing them back to His loving arms through His saving grace of love, mercy, hope and charity.  

What a small price to pay for a few advertising dollars of support, to have such a big impact on peoples lives.

So please, pray on this and ask our Lord to guide His loving and ever Holy Spirit to help us help them through you, in ministry and hope by partnering with Celtic Cross Ministry Inc.

Your advertising dollars will not go to waist. It will make a difference here and abroad. We will include your campaign or marketing logo with a back-link to your website, email or contact info. So lets talk about how we can help further Christ’ great commandment of love, mercy and hope to a lost world.

Sincerely IHS and yours,

H.E. Patriarch +++Andrew Moses Brendan Patrick

What would Jesus do !

keep-calm-and-think-wwjd-26

Folks I read an article called “More than 700 Christian women condemn Trumps misogyny in powerful letter”. As a Christian leader I’m disappointed in the attitude of my fellow Christian leaders mentioned in it. Though I do see how women and men, in general (regardless of political affiliation) find offensive what Mr. Trump has said in the past, we should all remember the following which as a Christian leader our Lord put into my heart to pass onto all people.

John Ch. 8, Verse. 7, works for all sinners. “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone”. If we seek forgiveness from our Savior, is that not enough. If we can not forgive our fellow man, how can we expect forgiveness. Ask and it shall be give unto you Christ states. We are all held accountable and will be judged.

Who are we to judge and question if Christ has forgive him. Who are you, not to forgive him and to say if he is truly sorry or not.

It is not for me as a man of God and a preacher to judge but, to teach Christ’s will and ways to the sinner and for them, to repent. Not to judge. Matthew Ch. 7, Verse 1. “Judge not, that ye be not judged”.

Yet it is for clergy and theologians to teach and live what is our Lord’s ways and will, which is to forgive and help others to see the error of their ways. Be it in general actions or thinking. Yet always with love, fighting and striving for our Lord’s righteousness to someday be unblemished when called before Him in judgment.

I do not condone the evil in mankind’s heart, I appall it. Bullying, harassing, belittling and degrading anyone because they are female or different or have an infirmity is wrong. It is not what Jesus would want of His children to rejoice in. For we are all created in the image of our God and Lord.

Yet we all make choices, some good and some bad. However, we all have to live with, and will have to answer for our personal choices on judgment day before God the Father and Creator of all mankind. Both men, women, young or old, no matter what one’s race, creed, color, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or politics.

It will not even matter if you think you were right and another was wrong. What will only matter is what God will think and if you will be worthy or not.

As for me, I am a poor sinner. I have regrets. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve asked Christ for forgiveness and I know in my heart, I am forgiven. Does that mean I will not sin again or fall short of the glory of God? By no means. Do not fool yourself or think yourself so holy that you are above reproach yourself. For in that case, you will have fallen into the trap and will be doomed.

For we are all given another day to strive to do as the Savior commanded us and that was to first, as is written in Mark Ch. 12, Verse 30 “thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And secondly, Verse 31, which states, “love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these”.

To me one of the first act’s of love is forgiveness. For that was the example our Lord Jesus showed us and taught us as His final gift to the world from the Cross at Calvary. That is when he said in; Luke Ch. 23, verse 34 “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do”.

I do however, seek the kingdom of God first and His will and ways. I teach that and encourage others to do the same. I would only suggest that religious leaders, preachers, theologians and the such remember these words before casting judgment or anyone takes offense of what anyone has done in the past and what they are trying to do in the present. However, if one is judging, then judge righteously according to the will and discernment of God in your heart.

So don’t put down what God may have forgive and chosen to rebuild. For you maybe condemning yourself and justly so. That would bring a tear to our Lord’s eye. And that, I would not want for any man, woman or child, under the SON that stands with one nation under God and who Trust in Him to have to endure!

Operation Burundi Africa

burundi_landscape

Greetings and Blessed Salutations Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

I come to you with a special Decree to be fulfilled by all Clergy, Knights and Dames, Chaplains and private citizens who follow and support what we are doing in our Lord’s Holy and Blessed Name here in the United States and around the world.

It is the world I come to you this evening for. To ask you to help this ministry and our Church Plantings around the world in our humble effort to spread the Love, Peace and Grace of our Lord to those who have lost hope and had the world as they knew it, ripped from it’s very foundation and uprooted them to far off lands seeking help and finding some but mostly adversity and evil along their way.

I come to you with a heavy heart and great burden, one that has cut deep into my soul and spiritual essence. That being those of a small sovereign country called Burundi, Africa. The people of Burundi have been facing a major Civil War for over a decade now and has seen genocide committed for one standing firm on the belief of individual freedom and democracy. The people have lost so much of their life and hopes and even dreams do to the atrocities committed by those elected to give them hope, fairness and a new life. Instead they have been met with a diminished way of life, some isolated, some segregated, some cast into slavery and servitude and some even unto death for standing up against the very law and governance that swore to protect and serve them.

I was asked more than a year ago to try to help and through the last year and several months, I have been looking into the situation unfolding in Burundi and followed other groups and individuals that have seen first hand what I speak to you about this evening. My heart is heavy for the people of Burundi as it is for many cultures around Africa and the rest of the world, even here in the United States of America where we to have people persecuted for their belief and shunned because they have not wealth or education or even good health, but are aging and trying to survive just like others around the world, even in Burundi.

To I ask you to quit looking the other way. Keep in mind that the worlds problems are just as important to address as our own personal and even private issues. We are all interconnected we are all brothers and sisters even though we have different ways, customs and traits. We who call ourselves Christians know that what I say is true, we are all indivisible under God. One God, the God of Abraham, Jacob, and Isaac.

The Celtic Cross Foundation Board of Directors and I have decided to commit every resource at our disposal to help the citizens of Burundi, the Refugees from there which are now scattered throughout the neighboring countries around that tiny nation. Millions have been displaced from their homeland and are wearing down the resources of the countries next to it as people by the hundreds and even thousands cross into their sanctuary borders trying to flee the death and destruction they left behind.

Yes, there are a few groups and organization doing all they can to help in and with this crises. But it is not enough. More needs to be done and more can be done. Keep in mind that the tiny nation of Burundi is the key to almost all that is going on in Africa that is causing it to be unstable. Greed, is but one cause that is the issue. And for the fact that people like you, either have not heard of what is happening there or maybe you just don’t care because it doesn’t affect you on that same personal level it does them.

Well that is where you are dead wrong. You should not only care but should do all you can to help create an environment that is conducive to all people. A place where true democracy can flourish for the betterment of all people, not just a few. I know many of you do care and, that you want to do something to leave this world better off than when you were here. That is for the next generations of family and friends.

Trust me when I say that enough is NOT being done. For if we continue to ignore what is happening elsewhere in the world, even in a tiny country like Burundi, how can we look God in the face on our judgment day and say honestly, that we did all we could. Knowing in our heart that we could have done more and not sacrifice our own comfort and security. Remember, God is the seeker of mankind’s heart and mind and knows all. So he truly knows if you have or have not.

I am not judging you but you are being judged on this as well as all things you experience, do and don’t do in your life. That is just the facts of the matter.

Yes, I am trying my hardest to get you to move and help in something that is truly bigger and more monumental than most likely anything you have done before, excluding our war-time veterans and their families. The world and the Christian civilization is under attack in many ways.

Isn’t it time to truly stand up and be counted worthy to be called Christian and a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ for the world. For by helping the world, we help ourselves and future generations.

It is time to STOP being selfish and self-centered. There is no, me in the Trinity. But rather One God, One Son and One Spirit. For there is something you can do and you should be doing it. Otherwise you are not doing the will of our Father in Heaven.

I know what I have said thus far may seem harsh, unfair and even by some who read this as insensitive. But you are so very wrong.

What is harsh, unfair and insensitive is what is happening to the people of Burundi and elsewhere in the world. I am merely trying my humble best to provoke your inner spirit to do as I have done and investigate the situation at hand and get involved.

I do not intend to hurt or intimidate you to get involved but unlike many in the world today that are having their freedoms and liberties ripped from them, is more than you or I, will most likely go through in our lifetime. That is not to say it could not happen, for it can and just as easily so.

Though many would fight back the best they could. It is that, that makes you and many relate and understand the seriousness in my words here. It is time and we must no longer look the other way. People are dyeing, struggling and fighting for their life and freedom to live and provide for their families and loved ones. So try to walk a mile in their footprints before you do decide to not get involved and help in some way. Even the smallest gesture contributed by many will add up to be a great deal by those who have nothing.

So with all of this stated, I am hereby committing the CCFM and every department and division to commit to doing all they can to help those who are suffering and lost. Who only want peace and to be able to return home to live in safety and security. Those who wish a better life for themselves and their families and loved ones just like we have in varying amounts.

We can make a difference, YOU can make a difference, we all together, can make a positive difference. Thing is, we must first commit individually as well as collectively and move on from there.

Yes, this is a massive undertaking and commitment of the next 5 years to see it through. I know we will be able to make a positive difference not only for the people of Burundi, but also for our world and it’s future.

We here at the CCFM pray every Tuesday evening as we did this evening and we pray one particular verse within it that states; “You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven”.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Brothers and Sisters, I believe with my whole heart that this is true and that what we do from here on, will make the world a better place. Remember, Christ was but one person and look at the profound difference He made on the earth for all mankind. You too can be part of this vision of a safer and free Burundi. And help stabilize the Eastern and Central Africa, which will have a ripple effect on the whole continent of Africa before we are though.

So go to our Ministry and Church website at the link below and see what we see and let us know how you wish to help. Remember the only thing stopping you, is you. Nothing else.

Any question, comments or concerns, please ask. Resources are available to help you and your group or organization. Just please don’t delay, lives are depending on what you choose to do this very minute and into the future.

Humbly and Sincerely IHS and yours as well as the people of Burundi Africa,
