IN THE NEW YEAR - LET'S KEEP PRAYING ONE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY A DAY FOR FUTURE SHOOTERS OF AMERICA & THE WORLD!
Right after we started saying the chaplet a month ago - the first shooting was at Mercy Hospital with low casualties.
Yesterday, a man was stopped before the shooting took place at a Texas Baptist church Sunday service and is being held at Guadalupe jail.
December 30, 2018: "Now that I think about it, he could've taken a trip to any church and -- a lot of people [could've left] in body bags," Jimenez said. "That kind of hurts me, like, what if? You know what I mean? What if that really happened?" The gunman, Mr. Albert was being held at the Guadalupe County Jail on $100,000 bail, according to court records.
Let's keep praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for future shooters of America and the world!

Bro. Gary . . . I purchased your book "Proof of the Afterlife 2" at SCRC over Labor Day Weekend along with a number of other books. I have always been interested in NDE's and when I saw your book I was trying to decide whether or not to spend the monies on another book on the subject. We spoke and you convinced me to purchase it. My husband and I work on the SCRC Sacristy Team so when we arrived home, we needed to rest for the remainder of the weekend to prepare for the fall activities! I placed all the books and tapes we had bought on a shelf and hadn't gotten to them until our Christmas vacation. Once I began reading your book, I couldn't put it down. I learned so much from it. I have encouraged our youth minister (he works with the youth in outreach activities with the homeless) and our local bookstore owner to read it. You named one of our parishioners whom we feature in our Ministry Fair in September as making Rosaries for your ministry. I had to email her to inform her that she was in your book! I'm sure your writings will have far reaching effects on many folks . . . --Cecilia Marks, St. Raphael's Parish Santa Barbara/Goleta Ca

L.A.'s Housing Crisis Hits Hollywood: The Entertainment Workers Living in Their Cars
By the Hollywood Reporter
In response to exorbitant rents, many assistants, craftspeople and working actors are adopting a transient lifestyle, some by choice, some less so: "It's hard for me to say this because I don't think of myself as in need of help, but right now I need help."
Noelle, 25, who is using only her first name because she signed a no-publicity clause for one of her jobs, is one of the 15,748 Angelenos currently living in his or her vehicle, according to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Their ranks are growing amid a worsening income inequality and homelessness crisis: As of January 2018, 9,117 vehicles were being used as homes, up 600 from 2017.

he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever." Luke 1:46 ff

Religious movements and prophets have come and gone. Only ONE Person glorified weakness. Only ONE Person accepted shameful and humiliating death on a cross as the path to exaltation. Only ONE Person conquered the world through His death, death on a cross. And Only ONE Person rose from the dead. He is now exalted by God. He is "King of Kings" and "Lord of Lords!" Jesus Christ!

The True Story of How an Out-of-Control Egotistical Captain Humiliated the First Officer and Caused an Air Blue Airbus A321 to Crash!
July, 28 2010 near Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, killing all 146 passengers and six crew on board flight 202: After listening to the cockpit communication, it becomes clear that the Captain premeditated at some point during his take-off tirade (1 hour long) humiliating the First Officer (FO) and then purposely ignoring certain headings from ATC. Inputting computer errors was just another device the Captain used to terrorize the FO, even more so than his tirade.
The Captain was consciously hell-bent on exerting egotistical power and control over the other man in the cockpit, the FO. In the secret recesses of his mind, he plotted to take the FO for the "ride of his life" over the next 1.5 hours. The Captain, by mixing the computer controls up a bit with blatant errors, now holds the keys to life and death, the ultimate power trip.
His premeditated actions are meant to assume power and instill fear and control over FO. The Captain then surmised that in the end, he would augment his domination by being a hero and saving the day with his aircraft (AC) knowledge and flying prowess. The Captain believed that after this flight, the FO will know for certain who is "top dog" and "alpha male."
Unfortunately, the Captain got in too deep with his mind games and could not dig himself out. As Captain, he believed he had absolute control over the FO and the AC. Ironically, he falls victim to his own devilish devices. Something greater than he, i.e. the weather and the automation of the aircraft become the ultimate power struggle winners in this air crash.
The Captain, haughty and proud, just seconds from disaster is humbled and then in a flash is broken and crushed as the AC disintegrates into the side of a mountain, missing the airport by 4 miles. The First Officer is redeemed in this story by the ultimate humiliation and destruction of the dominator.
In God's world, victims are exalted while the haughty and proud are brought low. And so the meaning of Christmas speaks to us from the rubble Air Blue flight 202:
"Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:" Isaiah 40:4
