Who is the "Servants of the Father of Mercy" and what do they do?

The "Servants of the Father of Mercy" is an Association and Catholic ministry of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

In actuality, it just looks like we help the homeless . . .

But in reality, "Servants of the Father of Mercy" helps middle-class and wealthy people to go to heaven by inviting them to donate their money and hearts, having compassion on the poor homeless.  So, that is our mission, "to help people who have homes and wealth to enter the Kingdom of God."

Jesus said:  "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven."  Mark 10:25

May God bless you as you follow the "Servants of the Father of Mercy" on social media, and we pray you will have a lot of success taking from your wealth and giving it to the poor.  Ultimately, the rich and poor, we can all make it to heaven together!

Prayers and blessings . . .

The Servants of the Father of Mercy Team

Well, Marie Foti (Photo 1 - pretty gal in the white dress) recently reminded friends that 2018 is the 10th anniversary of the opening Mass of the Servants of the Father of Mercy.  Peter Torsiello (Photo 1 - awesome leader with the guitar) and music group were the worship team for the celebration. It was held at St. Peter's Italian Catholic Church, Chinatown, Los Angeles, January 26, 2008.

Present at that Mass were Myrna Emata (piano) along with 30 other musicians, singers and guests. (Photo 2 - that is Westwood, Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Community's drummer, Joel Fischer on percussion.)

However, the first servants began helping the homeless in Los Angeles under the 3rd Street bridge in 2001. All-totaled, we now celebrate 16 years of the privilege of serving the poorest of the poor in Southern California.

In Menlo Park, NJ in 1879 (New Years Eve), Thomas Edison gave the gift of light to the entire world. 

In Jerusalem, Israel in the year 33, Jesus Christ by his resurrection gave the gift of light to the souls, hearts and minds of all the peoples of the world.

In the year 00, God said, "Let there be light!" and gave the gift of light to the entire universe.

Evil is by nature systemic. A malignant tumor.  A cancer growing throughout the earth spreading itself to a final culmination of world-wide destruction and death.  
But here is the wisdom:  Jesus said in a night filled with storm and darkness as he walked on crashing waves, “Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid.”   Matthew 14:27

Only Jesus can make something beautiful out of a broken life . . .

Please pray for our dear homeless brother, Cody.  In the morning he has an interview with a grower in their plants sales department.  This dear boy has been raised in group homes and foster care from age 12 - 18.  Now he suffers, hurts inside and is broken just like all of us in so many varied and different ways.  Only Jesus can make something beautiful out of the rough edges and pieces of his shattered life.  

Today, Cody created a handmade card for his best friend, "brother" Cookie who died in a motorcycle accident when he was 20, two years ago.  Cody wrote a beautiful and tender message of love and loss, we attached the 23rd Psalm to it.  Cody tossed it off the Ventura pier in a bottle to begin its journey to Cookie's heart.

Each homeless person has a unique story and it always begins just like ours, with moments of loss and years of brokenness.  Blessings, and thank you for your prayers for Cody!   bro. gary +

Nothin' But Blue Skies!

Nothing but blue skies at 3:15 PM on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.  We made it through a violent storm last night unscathed, thanks be to God! Prayers and blessings back to all of you and thank you for your prayers.  

Pray for towns just north of Ventura, CA - people and homes in the December 2017 fire zone washed away near CA 101 from flash floods and mudslides.  Fire, floods, hurricanes and earthquakes, it's easy to become homeless in America!
