THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS?


A dad received from his ten-year-old daughter today this Christmas wish list (photo) that he posted on Twitter. Apparently, he is not very happy about being handed the note.  Her list includes a number of expensive items, including a MacBook Air, Gucci Slides and a luxury brand Chanel purse. Other items include a real bunny and $4,000 cash!

Getting Ready for Christmas!





Seems a little early for Christmas, but elves start their work now in order to be ready for the Holidays.  This is our 12th annual Servants of the Father of Mercy Youth & Families autumn event making winter crafts for the "homeless" elderly who are alone and forgotten in nursing facilities. May God bless all the children, moms and dads that participated this year and all the folks that receive their handiwork!

Skid Row 2019 Increase: Click Below for "Sleep Attacks on the Homeless!"


The homeless are being killed by stronger, more powerful people, much in the same way the homeless Christ and his disciples were persecuted and put to death by the leaders of their day. God help these weak and defenseless souls!

DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY!


In this NEW very short YouTube video, share some brief moments of happiness with our 80,000 + homeless family in Los Angeles!

Saturday, September 28, 2019. The "Servants of the Father of Mercy" photographed miles of smiles as they delivered to homeless persons living remotely under bridges and in alleyways.

May God bless St. Peter's Church for the 300 fresh salads and St. Jude the Apostle Church for the more than 100 brand new backpacks. May God bless our homeless friends and our team for delivering urgent supplies on the streets of Oxnard, Ventura, Los Angeles, Indio and all the desert cities around Palm Springs, California.

Savvy Traveler

Running through airports and living out of a suitcase is not much fun for even the most savvy traveler. This carryon belongs to a homeless person living without air-conditioning in the hustle and bustle and alleyways surrounding the 120-degree tarmac of Palm Springs International Airport, Palm Springs, CA. Sunday, September 15, 2019.

READY OR NOT!


Jesus told us he will come again - a Second Christmas, one might say. 


MATTHEW 25:1-13

Then he told a story about his second coming. The parable of the 5 wise women and 5 foolish. All ten were waiting for the moment the Bridegroom would arrive after being away on a long journey.  Only 5 were prepared and bought extra oil in the house for their lamps.  The other 5 women figured they did not know the day or the hour of his arrival, so they just went on living unprepared.

 
LEFT OUT OF THE WEDDING?

Too busy to daily fire up your lamp with Jesus?  What if he came today, right now?  Fifty-percent will not be ready to meet Him. Fifty-percent will be invited to the wedding banquet!

THE DATE, TIME AND DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST!


Through researching the historical record of the four Gospels, along with the writings of Josephus, a Jewish historian of the time and comparing the births and deaths of Harrod and Pontius Pilot, this allows us to narrow down the date, day and time of Jesus' death to a very specific point in history. The Crucifixion of Christ took place at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3, A.D. 33.

Pointless to Priceless



WE'RE FRANTIC
Humankind makes frantic the clinging to earthly things completely pointless . . .  "As he came from his mother's womb he shall go again, naked as he came, and shall take nothing for his toil. For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. All go to the same place" (Eccl 5: 14; 3: 19, 20).


WE'RE BLIND
A profound blindness takes hold of man if he deludes himself that by striving to accumulate material goods he can avoid death. Not for nothing does the Psalmist speak of an almost animal-like "lack of understanding".


EMBRACE POVERTY
It is better to be poor and to be one with God!

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

"Mark my word", the Apostle Paul said: "In the last days there will be terrible times ahead. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, violent, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, irreconcilable, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of Christianity but denying its power."  2 Timothy 3:1-5

CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST? WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE TO WITNESS CHRIST'S RETURN?



Well, to be exact, it will be just like celebrating Christmas! 


Everybody loves Christmas, right?  

When Jesus came the first time, we called it Christmas Day.  

Now when he returns the second time, we will call that monumental event Christmas Day too.

So get ready folks, "It's Christmas time in the city. Soon it will be Christmas Day!"

“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30).

WHAT IS THE FACE OF MERCY?


“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. ‘Mercy’ is a beautiful word: more beautiful still is the thing itself. All men wish to receive it, but the worst thing is that not all of them behave in a way that deserves it. Although everyone wishes to be shown mercy only a few wish to show it.


“O man, how can you have the arrogance to ask for what you refuse to give to others? You must show mercy in this world if you want to receive mercy in heaven. So, my dearest brethren, since we all desire mercy, let us make ourselves mercy’s slaves in this world so that she can give us our freedom in the world to come. For there is mercy in heaven and we come to it through earthly mercies. As Scripture says: Lord, your mercy is in heaven." St. Caesarius of Arles, 500 AD +

LIKE JESUS, WHY NOT BECOME A SERVANT!


"Behold, my servant shall prosper, [but not in the way you may think].  He shall be exalted and lifted up very high.  In fact, many will be astonished looking at him.  His appearance is so marred, beyond human resemblance and his body beyond that of normal men. He will startle kings and nations.

"For he grew up like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground.  He had no form or body that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. Thus, he was despised and rejected by all.

"Yet it was the will of the Lord to prosper his hand.  Therefore, he will be accounted among the great because he poured out his soul to death."  Isaiah 52 & 53

RSVP in the comments below, let us know you would like to become a "Servant of the Father of Mercy."  Since 2001 serving the 80,000 + poor homeless in Southern California and beyond. You need not be a resident of California or necessarily a Roman Catholic Christian to be a Servant, you can join our third-order and live anywhere and serve. Brother Joseph +

HEAR THIS ALL YOU PEOPLE THAT LIVE UPON THE EARTH . . .


"You cannot serve both God and money!"  Matthew 6:24

"Do not be in awe when others grow rich or when the splendor of their house increases.  They will take nothing with them when they die and their splendor will not descend with them into the grave. 

"While they lived, they said, "Men will praise me for my success."   Yet, they will go to join those who have gone before them, who will never see the light of day again. 

"People who have money but lack understanding are like beasts, they are destroyed."  Psalm 49:16-20

MAJORITY SINNERS VS. MINORITY SINNERS


"In America today, for some reason, we have both Catholic and Protestant mainstream “majority-type sinners,” (divorce, remarriage, living together, liars, cheaters, etc..) who apparently do not see the log that is in their own eye. All the while they hate off-the-path “minority-type sinners” – individuals who are struggling with their very own unique brand of addictions, sins, problems, weaknesses and issues (gays, alcoholics, drug addicts, etc.).

“'Majority-type sinners' seem to be concerned about removing the spec from others’ eyes while ignoring their own contradictions and brokenness. Jesus, undeniably, condemns religious hypocritical behavior of this sort and frequently speaks out against it in the Gospels." Cf. Matthew 23
