Folks we’ve started a small campaign to help support our ministry’s efforts in helping others in need. There is so much that is offered through this program but, it can not support it’s self indefinitely. Every dollar goes to support this 501 c3 organization which is now part of our ministry efforts by forming the HSACC. (Holy See of Antioch Celtic Cross Medical Outreach Division). And everyone knows it takes funds to do all the good we do and help us to expand the program and sustain it for years to come. So please, help support our efforts, it will be greatly appreciated. The campaign officially ends at 11:59pm (EST) on Dec. 23rd, 2014. So help us make Christmas and the New Year, a little better for those individuals and families. Your financial aid and support is needed now ! (+)

“Thy Holy Writ”

Psalm, # 133 verse 1 (NKJV)

1) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

————
Unity ? Oh people is it even possible ?
One part of me say yes and the other is not sure.

I say this because we as a nation are not united. In politics nor in faith. In theology and in doctrine neither are we united. Even when it comes to the word of God in the Holy Bible we have two separate versions, meaning the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible. And of those, I’ve lost count as to how many different versions and interpretations there are. And lets not forget the Apocrypha’s that have been omitted by both.

So I ask you to think about this verse and pray and meditate with me today, and even all this week, that God our Father will see and bless our meager attempts to come together for the common good. Pray with a true heart of compassion and respect for the concerns of our faith. Ask that, His Son and their combined Holy Spirit come and bless us all and bring us together in unity. Ask that, our unity be re-affirmed in His Son and in their Holy will, when needed most. But mostly that we hold fast the common fabric that holds all 34(+) thousand different Christian beliefs together.
Our faith in Him and His divine will for all peoples.

I believe then and only then we will be truly united in the will of God against evil and corruption that plagues mankind. That we can put aside our differences and in Christian Brotherhood and Sisterhood unite with Him, for the worlds sake.

Have a blessed day and week for that matter, in the love and bond that holds us all together in His sake and cause.

Sincerely yours in service to all mankind and Jesus our salvation,
Bp. Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.

2013 the year of repentance, a new beginning…

Greetings fellow citizens of the world and Christian Warriors,

With 2013 fast approaching I want to take a moment to advise you of our commitment to you. We here at Celtic Cross Ministry have designated this year as the year of repentance. Meaning that this year you have an opportunity to change from doing things that are not pleasing to God and become the person He knows and wants you to be. It all starts with your responsibility to yourself and what it is to change something about our life that maybe causing you to not do the right thing or better yet keeping you from doing the wrong thing that you know is causing you to sin.

I’m not going to bore you with a list of items that are unpleasing to the creator, mainly because most everyone knows in their heart what is right and what is wrong. Lets put it this way for a moment. If you feel that what you are doing, going to do or are even thinking about is wrong, harmful or destructive to you or someone else, than you can pretty much bet that it is a sin in the eyes and heart of our heavenly Father. And if so you know you need to change your way of thinking and or acting.

With that said, here’s our commitment to you. Over the days, weeks and months ahead we will put up comments and articles as well as other topic relating subject matter that we feel might bring awareness to the general public on any given topic. These topics may include and addition to alcohol or drug abuse, domestic violence to pornography or even as far as human trafficking or child endangerment.

We intend to bring you information in a variety of formats to help you to grow to a point of becoming a better person and or even a better “Christian”. And it all starts with the realization that you are not perfect and that improvements for the positive is a better choice than the alternative. The alternative being an eternity in hell, or better yet being on the outside of heaven looking in. I really don’t think anyone really wants that to be the case for their life eternal. But we here at the Celtic Cross Foundation of Ministry will try to bring even the toughest hard-core individual around to enlighten them as to what Christ is, What He expects. And to what degree one must go in order to achieve the promises of Jesus Christ and an eternal life in the presence of God Himself.

We hope our efforts will not be in-vain. It is with great love and admiration for all people that we worry about your soul, more so than your personal feelings. God can help you with that and we’ll do what we can to aid our Lord to put the fear of God back in the mainstream of society. Granted it is with the love of God we do this and take this stance and it is that same love that God has put it into our hearts and in the hearts of those that need it the most.

We see a genuine problem with society in general and a lack luster attitude that will cause billions of people (fellow brothers and sisters if you will), to maybe condemning their eternal soul to an eternity of unrest. And a great unrest at that. We don’t want anyone to experience the latter of this statement. But as stated will offer you an opportunity to turn your life around and be all that Christ wants you to be.

So check back often for access to links and information that will only help you and help others around you to be that better person, that watchman to the sky and even a better more committed Christian with a better understanding of what it not only means to call ones self a Christian but to be the best Christian Christ wants you to be. Not only for yourself but for those around you and as a light on a hill for the world to see and want.

May this year of 2013, be the year of a new commitment to yourself through the love of your savior Jesus Christ. It will only re-enforce how much He truly loves you.

Sincerely yours in the service of Jesus Christ.

The Path in Life…

Warriors, there are times that the paths in life are filled with obstacles, it is how we deal with those obstacles that will influence the final outcome of our journey in this life. So, as this photograph I took several years ago illustrates, we must all keep our focus on the prize. That being the gift of our Lord and Saviors suffering for each and everyone that seeks the kingdom of God above all else in their life. Until we meet again, may God bless you and stay with you as you venture the righteous path of eternal bliss with the whole family of God… With great humility and Christian love for all mankind, God bless and may He keep you on course to His pearly gates of heaven… Bp. Andrew.

An unrelated note of personal history yet to know something can help us to know everything :

This picture is taken in what is known as the Wheat field on the Battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I have meditated here many times over the last 30 + years of my life, because it was in this field on July 2nd 1863 that a great cousin of mine (Timothy Manley of the 63rd Irish Brigade) was mortally wounded in the battle that took place. When I would come to this portion of the battlefield I always seemed to be at peace within my heart and soul. Most likely because of this connection between Timothy and I, to this piece of hollowed ground.  I would contemplate what took place here as well as, what was taking place in my own personal life and the world around me.

The Holy Trinity, the saints (as I call them) and lost souls of this horrific killing field have aided me to realize many things over the years. It is a special place to come, that allows one to reflect and sort out what is important in one’s life. It also aided me into seeing what was important in my life and what might occur if I chose one path over another.

On this piece of hollowed ground over 6,000 men and boys were either wounded or dead in less than 2 1/2 hours of close quarter fighting. It even went hand to hand in the Rose Woods and on the Stoney Hill. The total area of this one battle took place in about a 25 acre piece of land. A killing field and a part of American history that would be just as major a place as any other battle that would set this country onto the path which it is on now.

Men have said that these men that fought and died here did not die here in vain, but that they gave there last full measure of life, fighting for what they believed in. A United Union. A union of states that still stands today and is mighty only because of their sacrifice as well as those that continue to sacrifice today for our freedom. Not only in this country but for others around the world.

The world. It is a much smaller place now than it was back in 1863 that fateful day. It never ceases to amaze me when I see what is happening to our world let alone our country. I do not feel that those men, like my cousin died so that we could lose our freedom of faith, but it seems to me that is exactly what we are doing, just for the sake of an argument. Of what is fair and what is not.

Freedom is a gift that has come at a very, very high price no money can buy it and no one can give it except for God. Yet mankind continues to raise the stakes of the cost of that freedom. A country and a world and it’s total population in lives, and in deaths of principles which stand for equality. Principles that are not necessarily the best path for a God-fearing nation or world. The things that effect all mankind need to be talked about in the open, although there is a time and place for closed-door meetings as well. As well as the outcome of those meetings are brought forth to the public and that outcome will benefit all humanity. Not just a few, or a few that feel they have all the right answers or even those that feel they have no rights at all and that the world is against them personally. It is not personal. It is only personal if one makes it personal.

We don’t, have the answers but our faith in Christ does. Yet many don’t care about their faith here, in the realm of Christianity which makes up the back bone of our freedoms here in the United States. Others faiths around the world set aside public time for prayer by the masses of their own belief. Yet Christianity and those that call them selves Christian are hypocrites to their own faith. Folks here in the U.S.A., that claim Christianity as their belief are blind to the concept of not wanting to offend, yet we are doing just the opposite, we are just rolling over and hoping things will get better. Well it won’t and those that don’t get involved are doomed to be servants to those that impose their personal will on the masses. Others in far off lands are willing to die for their belief no matter what it is. While we here in the U.S.A., are to busy complaining about self-centered ideals to give a damn about what else is important in life or even what God thinks.

This is where humanity across the board is making the biggest mistake of all. That being that this world is only ours for a short while and that it really belongs to the one that created it. God ! God is where we as Americans and Christian Americans at that, need to focus, for if we don’t, I am afraid that men like my cousin and maybe someone you know personally today, will have died in vain after all.

We need not wait to fight back, although we do need to fight back for the right reason. And that reason is obvious. That is if you are not ignorant to the belief of a supreme being that has control over all life. And that can send even the least of the that which offends, to hell or to heaven. The choice is yours to make. “W.W.J.D” ?

I know which path I chose and that is a righteous path that leads to the glory of God in the highest. Not through demands, not through disrespect, not through fear of terrorism and not because man says so. But through the love and peace that is Jesus Christ lest we forget, that Christ does not come to bring peace to the world, but rather the sword.

My sword is my voice, my writings and my ability to see past the smoke and mirrors, the saber rattling of empty words and above the noise of a disgruntled world. Jesus is the way ! And heaven is where we need to be looking. Not just the few, but the masses that claim Jesus Christ and Christianity are the truth and the light and the way to heaven and eternal peace. By the tens of hundreds of thousands we need to act as one truly united. Those that truly want what God wants. Not what man wants. Our priorities are all screwed up and we as a Christian Nation had best become united sooner than later because of it. For later, will be too late.

Sincerely yours in the servitude of our Lord, Jesus Christ, now and forever,

Bishop Andrew Robert Moses Manley DD., O.S.P., O.S.M., O.S.F.

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,

Center of the Universe !

Christian Warriors and people of the world,

Many, many, many years ago, man thought that this plant (earth) was the center of the universe. Over time men figured out that the Sun is the center of the universe.

Well I’m here to tell you that the Sun is not the center of the universe but rather the Son is the center of the universe. For without the Son, the universe would not exist. So here is a suggestion for the whole human race, that being, why not be a “SON” worshiper?

You can even start today, for there is no time like the present to say thank you Father for the SON, and His light that shines upon all of us, everyday.

With fatherly love for His children, I’m sure he’ll keep the light on for the world to see and find their way…

Sincerely, yours in the service of the SON.
Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.P., O.S.M.

Make my day your day…

A blessing is a blessing no matter how small the blessing is. Remember that when you are a blessing to someone else, than the world is a better place because you are in it. So, have yourself a blessed day and make it a blessed day for someone else. No matter how small, or how little, it maybe.

Harken my words !

Those to the Right, to the Left, to the East, and to the West…

My fellow Christian Brothers and Sisters, and also to those that are not “Christian”. This message is ripped straight from the headlines. It appalls me, and is an abomination unto heaven, to see such hate taking shape as if it were a cancer spreading out of control. Our country from it’s beginning was built on “Christian Values”, but those same values are under attack right here on our door step.

In all actuality, I am beginning to think that there is no such thing as a “Conservative Right” any more. Or, better yet, I wonder, if they do exist. I than wonder if they have a yellow strip running down their back rather than our, Red, White and Blue.

For what is happening to our communities, our states, or our country. There is surely a deep rooted hate and disgust being accepted as the average norm. I under stand the logic behind the separation of church and state. I can except the pledge of allegiance being taken out of our public schools. I can even see and except the concept of taking the words “in God we trust”, off our currency. But for the federal government, the state governments as well as our local governments caving in or rather, rolling over and not backing the very principles that this nation was built on, is the most baffling thing that you or I are “forced” to except.

I wonder what all of those that have died in any of our conflicts since before the revolutionary war must be thinking. It is getting to the point that the “Christian Holy Bible” will come under attack and some minor group of activists will come along and demand that the word “Holy” be taken off the cover, because it offends them.

And we, meaning all, will most likely give into that request. O’ excuses me, demand is in all actuality the way it will be deemed. It is not enough that we (meaning Christians), have, of our own free will taken the word “Holy” out of the phrase Holy Bible Study, to a shortened version as “Bible Study”, but then again I’m sure it won’t take long for a group of phobics, to yell that the word “Bible” offends them and demands that it be taken off.

Yes, I used the word “phobic” to mean liberal or even left, for I know without a doubt, that when those two words, liberal left are used together it is like throwing fuel onto the fire. No matter what word or words are used to describe them, will nonetheless, offend them just the same.

But now, that I think about it, maybe a better choice of words to describe the “liberal left”, would be “Paranoid Phobics”. Either way we Christians are darned if we are not danged, for it anyways. So I ask, what of our rights? Who will stand up against this hate of Christianity around the world? Or for here on the home front, where are those special interest groups? Like the ACLU, ACORN, or even our major American news networks like, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, and even ABC. I don’t know about you but I get more relevant news from the PBS World News agencies than any other outlet, even Al Jazeera gives me more information about what our American Government is doing than our own news agencies. But I reckon most of you already knew this.

Where have all of the good and honest and fair people gone? Even here in the good old US of A, we can’t get one to run for the leadership of the free world, America. Oh, again as I think of that last statement I realize the problem now. The problem is that there is no longer such a thing as a leader of the free world, and soon to be no “super power nation”, either.

The reason I say this, is the very point I have eluded to through out this message, that being we as a nation built on Christian values and faith, along with a strong morel character, have decided it is to dangerous to stand up. At least for standing up for what is “right”, “good” and decent in the world.

This does not mean we as a nation have not done some good in the world, but I wonder what if, we did the big brother thing for the right reason rather than for our special interest in a another country that has chaos, unless we only do it when it benefits us in the long run. Any way I don’t blame other cultures around the world to resent us as they do, for the fact that we are or have in their view lost our “moral fortitude, our resolve, and our determination,” which is what made us great in the first part. So how dare we stand up for other oppressed cultures when we won’t even stand up for our selves.

I ask one final time, where is the real, true and loyal Conservative right in this nation, for truly I don’t see them running for public office and getting elected. For it is true that if they did come out and vote, come out and speak up, and or even come out period. This nation and our world, would be a much different and possible even a better place than what it is today.

So folks, get on the roof top, go to the highest mountain, sail the shining sea and yell out with one clear voice, Praise God our Father who art in heaven thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I vow this day and for the rest of my days, to stand up and fight Satan and his demons, where ever they are and by what ever means be necessary. To stand up and fight for the rule of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, now and to the hour of my death in this world. As a country, a nation, a community, a neighborhood, or even as an individual, I shall not be silenced anymore, for tyranny is the degradation of the will of the majority, no matter where it is found and or it needs to be called by it’s own definition, and that being, the death of human decency where ever mankind is found.

I would like to say to my fellow human beings. That is to say those that stand to the far left of me or even to those that claim to be a Conservative members of the right or even those that call themselves Christians. You may say that this message is hateful in it’s self. You may say that it is inflammatory, and some may even say that it is incitement or even border on anarchy. But I say it is my God given right as an American, to speak out when it deems necessary, and necessary it is. If you take offense than you need to examine your heart so please, don’t take offense anyone, for I am just calling it as I see it. Nothing more, nothing less. The situation at hand is just that simple, there is no “gray” area. Just the opposite is true and that being from a clear, transparent, view.

This message is directed towards those that are hard bent on tearing this country called America down from the inside as well as to this planet we all call earth. Doing what you are doing may seem to be the right thing to do at this moment. It is the long term I am talking about that final out come of these actions that will cause much heart ache to the generations to come. And by these causes you deem offensive, in most views, just have no merit. Instead, and if you don’t ad hear to my words, note here and now that it will be your own actions that bring us as a nation or as a world, down to the very door step of hell, and for where there is “NO RETURN.”

Just one man doing what he thinks is “right” for myself and those that he calls family, which in this case, means all inhabitants of mother earth. Should rejoice in the fellowship of others, and in Christ Jesus, who is the all of man kinds savior and that means you as well, And it doesn’t matter if you like it or not or even want it or not, He loves you even when you hate someone or something. Also note that there is only one master, and I plus several “billion around the world”, call him the “Lord of ALL !” And yes, God is good and God is merciful but remember this if you remember anything I have said here today, that being He (meaning Christ Jesus) has not come to bring peace on earth but rather a sword. Keep in mind that if you think I jest, in my remarks, than you need to read Matthew chapter 10, verses 27 through 42. And here by know, I do not jest, I speak only that which the Father has put into my heart for all mankind to hear. Even you. So those that have ears, let them hear.

Sincerely and with stern Christian Love for all man kind, Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley first a servant of Christ and secondly and American by Gods grace.
