Romans 8: 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[a] for those who are called according to his purpose. Keeping our hearts focused on the good Lord we have the Faith perspective we need trust in His Providential care in all things.

Psalm 33

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I substituted missile for horse and great power for great strength as the psalmist's intention to speak to us today.
1)Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous;
2)it is fitting for the upright to praise him 3)Praise the LORD with the harp;
4)Make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
1)Sing to him a new song;
2)play skillfully, and shout for joy.
3)For the word of the LORD is right and true; 4)he is faithful in all he does.
1)The LORD loves righteousness and justice; 2)the earth is full of his unfailing love.
3)By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, 4) their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
1)He gathers the waters of the sea into jars 2) he puts the deep into storehouses.
3)Let all the earth fear the LORD;
4) let all the people of the world revere him.
1)For he spoke, and it came to be;
2) he commanded, and it stood firm.

O Sacred Head

MP3 Music Playlist: 
The hymn is based on a long medieval Latin poem, Salve mundi salutare. The last part of the poem, from which the hymn is taken, is addressed to Christ's head and begins "Salve caput cruentatum" The poem was translated into German by the Lutheran hymnist Paul Gerhardt (1607–1676). The hymn was first translated into English in 1752 by John Gambold (1711–1771), an Anglican vicar in Oxfordshire. His translation begins, "O Head so full of bruises". In 1830, an American Presbyterian minister, James Waddel Alexander (1804–1859) made a new hymn translation. Alexander's translation, beginning "O sacred head, now wounded", became one of the most widely used in 19th and 20th-century hymnals.

Thank You For Your Gift of Faith

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Thank you for your gift of Faith and a share in your suffering In your death in your Life
Deep inside in places unknown, You await, patiently, for me to open -to open more to your Love
Let me serve show me how what to do in everything to do Your Will - I’ll be free - I’ll be free
Please teach me the spirit of poverty, chastity, obedience Devotedly - joyfully
Shepherd me in charity, humility, and solitude So I can be one with You - one with You
You're in control make me whole - burn my soul and
Prune me back let me start to see the sparks - know your Heart
Our Mother pleads to fast and pray like never before
More and more - keep it simple and raise a score for God’s Mercy - for God’s mercy
All your children everywhere near and far are the stars
Of your family - bring us HOME - for Your glory - for Your Glory

Psalm 34

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I posted this psalm before but left out a strophe(stanza) So I recorded it again.
                     Psalm 34
I will extol the Lord at all times;
    His praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
    let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
    let us exalt his name together
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.

A Joyful Battle Cry

MP3 Music Playlist: 
I am reading Jesus of Nazareth- Holy Week -  a second time by Pope Benedict. For anyone who has not read it, I highly recommend it. It was through His humanity - His humility, His obedience and His laying down His human life for us, as the second Adam, that he waged spiritual warfare and defeated Satan and won for us salvation/Eternal Life. This victory was won with the close collaboration of the new Eve as St. Irenaeus and many other Church fathers have pointed out. I wrote this song after pondering this. I pasted the lyrics before and now I have uploaded the song successfully.
Let everyone exult and sing
Before our gracious Queen and King
The New Adam and Eve

Be Thou My Vision

MP3 Music Playlist: 
"Be Thou My Vision" (Old Irish: Rop tú mo baile or Rob tú mo bhoile) is a traditional Christian hymn of Irish origin. The words are based on a Middle Irish poem that has traditionally been attributed to Dallán Forgaill probably from the six century
The best-known English version, with some minor variations, was translated in 1905 by Mary Elizabeth Byrne, then made into verse by Eleanor Hull and published in 1912. Since 1919 it has been commonly sung to an Irish folk tune, noted as "Slane" in church hymnals, and is one of the most popular hymns in the United Kingdom. There have been many variations in the lyrics over the years

Below are the lyrics most commonly used. The lyrics in bold type I added.

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
All in thy glory, and glory thou art -
thou my best thought, in the day and the  night;


MP3 Music Playlist: 
How easily we can become blind in our youthful pride  and how this contributed ( we the baby boomers) to the sexual "revolution" of the sixties and how God intervened in personal lives and some responded to His merciful Love
