PRAY ALWAYS FOR THE RETURN OF CHRIST!


PRAY ALWAYS FOR THE RETURN OF CHRIST!

Pray to the Father the days prior to Jesus' coming will be cut short . . .

“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened."  Matthew 24:22

We pray . . .

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed 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 who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

May God bless your dear heart of compassion for the poor, homeless and broken. If you are reading this, you are special among God's children! Please help get the word out for our homeless StreetReaches; it's a monthly delivery of critical supplies to the homeless of So Cal living under bridges, in alleyways and on city streets in Ventura, Los Angeles and Anaheim/Costa Mesa. The homeless need cases of water, cases of snacks (cookies, chips, jerky, granola bars, fruit cups, etc.) along with all sizes of men's clothing (only) - such as jeans, t-shirts, socks, underwear, sneakers, shoes, hotel soaps, hotel shampoos, winter jackets, blankets, sweaters, sleeping bags and tents. Also, there is a need for more singers and musicians to team up with us to do 3-4 concerts a year for our fundraising events and ministry to old folks in nursing homes. Servants of the Father of Mercy has a warehouse and chapel at 1544 Morse Avenue, Suite A, Ventura, CA 93003. Be there any Sunday at 2pm to 4pm for a volunteer team meeting - come hungry, free lunch for every volunteer. Bring family/children/friends with you. Call beforehand (310) 595-4175, RSVP. Blessings!

Mary-Miracle in May!

On Sunday afternoon, May 15, 2016 as the Blessed Mother was crowned queen of heaven and earth in our chapel, simultaneously, and completely by accident, a baby turned up Sunday morning needing a baby shower. Her name? Merireyna, "Mary Reigns!" What are the chances of that happening without a Mary-miracle from above? Thanks to Oxnard, Lighthouse Shelter for Women for helping to put this past Monday afternoon's baby shower all together for Merireyna and mom, Sabrina. God bless Servants of the Father of Mercy, Alice Maes and Linda Scarmella for all their help. Enjoy the pics!














Mary Queen of Heaven and Earth!






Here are some pictures from Sunday, May 15, 2016, "May Crowning" of the Blessed Mother at Servants of the Father of Mercy Chapel. Tony Rocha Jr. had the honors of the coronation. David and Maria Gonzalez placed fresh roses in her honor.

"A great portent appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pangs, in the agony of giving birth. Then the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. But her child was snatched away and taken to God and to his throne." Revelation 12:1
