Light and Darkness



  


"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." John 3:19-21

"For you were once in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them."

Ephesians 5:8 -11 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his son, purifies us from all sin." 1 John 1:7

Cici vs. the Los Angeles City Dump Trucks

Since 2001, Cici and her family have been served by the Servants of the Father of Mercy with deliveries of food, water, clothing, rosaries, hygiene kits and socks while living under a bridge in downtown Los Angeles. Last Saturday two city dump trucks were at the bridge dismantling their camp. Pray for them! Also, many servants were on hand to deliver to 100s of homeless living under bridges, in alleyways and on city streets in Los Angeles and Ventura last Saturday.

Be heaven bound! "Blessed are the merciful, they shall obtain mercy." (C.f. Matthew 5:7) Join our volunteer team serving the homeless in So Cal or anywhere in the US by calling (310) 595-4175.

Suffering . . .


Chinese fortune cookie quote received last night after dinner at Lee's on Thompson in Ventura . . .

"It is by those who have suffered that the world is most advanced."

Jesus said, "Blessed are those who suffer for doing what is right.  The kingdom of heaven belongs to them."  Matthew 5:10-12

MONKEY ADOPTS HOMELESS PUPPY




In Rode, India, locals were touched by the compassion of a monkey who had adopted a homeless puppy. Town locals thought it was bizarre at first, but the apparent love between the two animals was too much to deny. This just goes to show you that love knows no species. The monkey cares for the little puppy and keeps the little one close as if he were caring for his own baby.

It’s remarkable that a difference in species didn’t keep this monkey from becoming a responsible parent to a puppy who otherwise would not have had anyone to care for him. That just goes to show you that compassion has no limit!
