Change and Faith, Unite…

Folks I don’t write often in this following way but do to my calling to ministry and the position the Lord has placed me, I give you these following comments and ask you to take to heart the intent that we are all one in Christ Jesus.

ICCCC ULCCC UNITED

With the announcement of Pope Benedict’s resignation from the papacy I am encouraged for the church. Not that He is “retiring” for reasons only known to himself and to God but that the wisdom and strength it took to come to the realization that his effectiveness and health may not be up to the tasks of the office for which he holds.

It is an opportunity that we who call ourselves Christian can do our part by lifting our prayers and concerns to the heavenly Father and plead our case and want for the church. His church. A church of the people and of God as the head.

Many Catholics have faltered these past years because of the style of governance coming from the Vatican, yet now it is our turn to be heard. Even though Pope John Paul the II and Pope Benedict the XVI have placed a very Conservative leadership with their appointees to the rank of Cardinals. We can be diligent in our faith and understanding here in the west as well as around the world, that Christ hears our cry for true change and reform in the church.

I know that through continuous prayer and devotion to the Holy Trinity change will come. The church has the unique opportunity to respond favorably to the billion plus Catholic patrons to the growing need and urgency from the next pontiff whom the Cardinals will elect to the office.

So let us pray together that our prayers will not only be heard but acted upon accordingly. I do not expect sweeping reforms from the new Pope however, there is hope that many issues that face the church today maybe appeased through the wise council of those with the insight and foresight to vote accordingly with the people. No matter what folks, we need to accept the new papal leadership with open arms and have the faith of Christ himself to know that He truly is the one in control.

I encourage any and all people who read this to be steadfast and patient in the coming months. And as we go into the Easter season with the hope of the Resurrection of Christ, we to will experience a new resurrection of the church.

Weather you are Roman Catholic, Independent Catholic or a Non Catholic, the institution of the church and its longevity is of all of our concern. It will be a test of true faith of the people to come together at this time of great importance for the most powerful faith in the world. The Christian Faith and all that it entails.

Sincerely your servant in Christ Jesus,

Let Us Pray…

Christian Warriors it’s another sad day here in America. Many of you have heard about the senseless shooting that has killed so many and wounded so many more in Colorado today. Let us pray that those effected by this incident will find the answers and peace they seek.

( + ) Lord Jesus, you are Love, you are Peace, and you are Mercy. We beseech thee to look upon the victims you have called to you, an advocate for them that their place in heaven is assured enough to have them all, be able to stand with you by your side forever.

Please Father, look upon your children that are left behind to grieve, and mourn in the loss of those they loved and cared for. Stand by those family’s that are with others, in that part of time that is known as a waiting game for answers. Let them have patience to endure the long-suffering that is to come. And as they wait to find out what the condition is of their friends and loved ones, let it also be a time of inner spiritual reflection of positive emotions and loving memories that help carry them through this time of sorrow.

Lord, please give this Christian Nation the ability to stand up in support of that which is right and righteous in your eyes and in your sacred heart. Allow thy Holy Spirit to come upon all those that seek you and stand for love and forgiveness.

And lastly dear Father, Lord of all in Heaven and on Earth, allow this incident to help turn this nation back on a course that is of your will for all people. Let this or any act of violence not define us as weak or even meek in those eyes and hearts that want so badly to hurt this nation and it citizens. Grant us your shield of protection and out fit us with the armor that is your word and your will for all humanity.

Your children in Israel and other people’s, in other nations, have been dealing with incidents like this for decades. Let us take notice of their patients. Let us come together as a united world to fight back Satan and his henchmen where ever they lie in wait. Let their chance to cause havoc become uneventful in the lives of a tolerant nation of Christianity.

So brothers and sisters pray with me in the words our Lord and Savior gave to us as an example on how and what to pray in all times and in any event.

Our Father who art in heaven, Hollowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that have trespassed against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. – Deliver us Oh lord from every evil and grant us your mercy. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.

May our Lord watch over us and keep us ever mindful as to the power of prayer and it’s ability to conquer evil and perform any miracle that is asked for in His, Holy name. And let us all remain united in giving our Lord, and Savior, our praise for the love He shows us each and everyday. Let the world take notice of an Americans resolve for proper justice in all parts of our world. Which we all call home. Amen…

Sincerely and with a heavy heart and mournful sorrow,

Dead Air….

 

It looks like I feel…. loloollol.

Brothers and Sisters, I am about as frustrated as one person can be. It is a genuine test of patience that seems to be my struggle of late, that is in order for me to regain favor in the transgressions of tolerance and humility. At least that is what it seems like at times.

Anyhow, it is with sincere regret that I “again”, have to post pone today’s Christian Warrior Network broadcast from our Celtic Cross Radio program with Blog Talk Radio. Although the cell phone reception is stable and not a problem, the fact that if there is any disturbance in the connection with the internet and blog talk radio, I am dead in the water and I won’t even know it until after the show is over.

So, the reason for the cancellation is the same as it has been of late. That being of a weak WiFi signal. I have been trying to run several mock broadcasts and because of the unstable signal, the broadcasts keep dropping. Although the glitch is sporadic in nature, it is not performing as it must in order to work as it should and needs to be in order to get through an entire program.

I am about as tired of making excuses for why I can’t go on with the show as much as you are tired of hearing the apologizes. The weather is absolutely wonderful here on Lake Erie today, and yet the only thing I can figure and attribute to the root cause of the problem is that my old USB WiFi adapter which had an external antenna on it got accidentally dislodged from the extension adapter I had it connected to (that’s mumbo jumbo for what is called “operator abuse), loloolol. And so, in coming lose it fell 12 stories to hit on solid concrete. Mind you that plastic and concrete don’t play well with each other.

So now I have had to fall back on one of my other USB adapters, and because of it not having an antenna on it, it to become subject to any and all variance in the reception of WiFi signals. Meaning, it “hick ups” and then relocates a new and somewhat better signal, if available.

I can only say in my defense that there are many days and somewhat better times of day or even night when the signal seems to work perfectly. So with that said, I will be doing the broadcasts and rebroadcasts at any point “day or night”, that will seem to present its self with an opportune moment of stability to proceed with the airing of the intended broadcasts. I realize that this may seem somewhat confusing, but I assure you the “show” must and will go on. Unfortunately just not at the regularly scheduled time.

I hereby ask you to please grant me this leeway and I will continue to put out as much and as many programs as I can in any and or all formats as possible. I sincerely thank you all for your support and I will continue to work on our Lords behalf as often as I am able to remain on-line.

I am only saying this now so as to give you a heads up as to the who, what, where, when and whys of the situation at hand.

Sincerely, your servant in the love of Christ Jesus,

Bp. Andrew

Personal Ordinariate (ordination) for other protestants…

On another web site I attend from time to time had a unique question and it deals with one being called by God into His service. And although I kinda take the long way around the bush, I’m sure you will understand what I mean…

Personal Ordinariate (ordination) for other protestants.
Brothers and Sisters, Please allow me to introduce my self, I am, Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley and I have a few thoughts of my own for this topic and question and so I regress. Although I am new to your forum, I am not new to the word of God. So with that said here’s my opinion on this subject, and yet I will only clip the tip of this question with my response.

Part of what is wrong with the “church” today is that it is so traditional and bogged down with each of it’s own bureaucracy that it takes years to make a decision. Unless the issue is the almighty dollar.

As an example I refer to the Vatican being extremely quick to displace several thousands of loyal Catholic worshipers by a forced, no bending policy and deadline to close many churches down and start selling them off to other faiths here in Northeast Ohio. And yes, there are a few appeals that have been sent along with petitions to try and stop this. Even when it is proven that some of these community churches can stand on their own merit as presented on their fiscal spread sheets.

However, that latter part is not so disturbing. It is within their power to do what ever they want. For them to say on one hand, we need more Priests in the ministry. And then displace thousands, isn’t the best business strategy to use under the circumstances. It’s like I said folks, there have been families that have been associated with the same congregation and church for four or five decades or even longer.

The process should be simple for if you feel that you are being called into the Saviors service, than all you need to do is personally or in secret, acknowledge and claim your faith is based on His teachings. Then by all means start ministering. I refer my remarks here to, and I am sure most of you know it, and that is the Gospel according to John: ch. 15, verse 16. (“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and “ordained you” that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”)…There are several more that back this up and I am a firm believer that we need to expedite the process as quickly as possible.

If for nothing else it is because there is so much that has to be done throughout the world, where I hear Christian and non-Christians clamoring for more of the Fathers teachings. If we were to wait for a formal process of traditionalism to play out, I feel it would be to late.

So I ask you, which do you think Christ would want you to do? Then and only then, when you are absolutely sure make your decision based on the council of Him and not mankind. For their will be a time for a formal ordination in the future, but you all probably know this already.

Oh, yes, I could have just typed John, ch. 15, verse. 16 and left it at that. But a forum is to bring ideas together and cause one to look deep inside themselves for answers. And those answers would be the soft awareness of the Holy Spirit trying to lead you down the path that Father wants for you. Yet, the choice is always yours. I am also pretty sure that another verse should go here and it is Matthew ch. 22, verse 14. ( “Many are called, but few are chosen.” ). So I ask one final question of you and that being, why not answer the call. For you and only you will know that it is God calling you out…

No matter what you decide to do I will pray that all who read this are blessed and that one should answer the call, for it most likely will be our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the other end… 😉

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Bishop Andrew
