"God of love, Father of all,
the darkness that covered the earth
has given way to the bright dawn of
Your Word made flesh.
Make us a people of this light.
Make us faithful to Your Word,
that we may bring Your life to the waiting world.
Grant this through Jesus Christ our Lord.




When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky a noise
like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on
each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
(Acts 2:1-4)

The place where Jesus had his Last Supper,
and washed the feet of the disciples.
The place where Jesus instituted the priesthood,
and instituted the Eucharist.
The place where the Holy Spirit
came upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost.

"Do not grow weary of turning to Heaven: the world stands in need of prayer. It needs men and women who feel the attraction of Heaven in their life, who make praise to the Lord a new way of life. And may you be joyful Christians! I entrust you all to Mary Most Holy, present in the Upper Room at the event of Pentecost. Persevere with her in prayer, walk guided by the light of the living Holy Spirit, proclaiming the Good News of Christ." _ Address of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to Charismatic Catholics, May 26, 2012




The Portiuncula Indulgence is a grace
not to be missed!
Prepare yourself -- and encourage others
to do the same.
From vespers on August 1st until sundown on August 2nd


The Portiuncula Indulgence is the first plenary indulgence ever granted in the Roman Catholic Church. One who gains the Portiuncula Indulgence is freed from all temporal punishments and becomes as pure as after Baptism.

It was Pope Honorius who granted the petition of St. Francis of Assisi and confirmed this plenary indulgence.

To obtain the Plenary Indulgence of 
The Forgiveness of Assisi 
(For oneself or for a departed soul):

1) Sacramental Confession 
(8 days before or after);

2) Participation in the Holy Mass
And Eucharist 
(August 2nd);

3) Recitation of The Apostles Creed, 
Our Father, 
And a prayer for the Pope’s Intentions 
(After Mass).

The Portiuncula Indulgence is a grace not to be missed -- not only for you but for the many suffering souls in Purgatory. The Portiuncula Indulgence can be obtained by any member of the faithful.

Spread the word!

The "Greatest Story Ever Told" is, of course,
The Life of Jesus Christ.




What graces can I receive on this day?

Our Lord revealed to St. Faustina His desire to flood us with His graces on that day. Reflect on each of the promises and desires that He expressed about Divine Mercy Sunday, which are recorded in entry 699 of the Diary of St. Faustina -- the main passage about the Feast of Mercy:

• On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open.
• I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy [the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist].
• The soul that will go to Confession [beforehand] and receive Holy Communion [on that day] shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.
• On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened.
• Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet.
• My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout eternity.
• Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity.
• The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness.
• It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter.
• Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.

These promises and desires point to an amazing flood of graces that are available to us on Divine Mercy Sunday -- including complete forgiveness of sins and punishment! The slate can be wiped clean, and we can be granted a completely fresh start in life. _ Fr. George W. Kosicki, CSB

During days of apostasy, fallen-away Catholics -- not in a “state of grace” and not Sacramentally fortified -- become vulnerable “to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1).” The Devil offers excitement, diversion, mystery, intrigue… The Devil lures people into forbidden Occult practices -- and away from God.

Evil increases insensibly, once it is given in to. And one’s mortal sin testifies to the Devil’s victory in one’s life. Having turned away from the Light, fallen-away Catholics become more and more curious about the Dark Side -- the Occult, spiritism and the paranormal...

The current craze is “paranormal investigation” (charged and sustained by a Godless Hollywood). One’s willing participation in such activity is consent given, and doors (portals) to the demonic are opened. There can be dangerous consequences:

We were playing with the Ouija board. Suddenly, objects started flying across the room! At night, I often see a dark figure standing in my bedroom. It is like a shadow man watching me. And I get terrible nightmares.

A paranormal investigator was attacked during an investigation (scratch marks on his back). When he returned home he began to suffer the sexually-stimulating attacks of a succubus spirit. And objects began to move in his house.

Demons can attach to people, and people can bring demons home with them. This is how some houses become haunted -- that is, infested with demons.

August 2017 _ I visited a desperate family in Upper Darby, PA being targeted by a (real) witch from Trinidad. I agreed to see them because they were not getting the help they needed... I prayed for the family members, and sprayed holy water throughout the house.

Soon after returning home, I thought I had some kind of flea infestation in my carpet. I never saw them; I just felt them. I cleaned, and I cleaned some more... I even used a body wash that repels biting insects (such as fleas and ticks)...

One month later _ I was inspired to record a video of my apartment using the flash on my smartphone. This is when I discovered that the fleas in my apartment were not fleas.

This is what a demonic infestation looks like.  

Demons can attach to objects connected to a dark (diabolical) force: objects used in pagan rituals, false religions, white and black witchcraft, Santeria and Satanic rituals… objects of the Occult (amulets, crystal balls… Ouija boards/witchboards, dowsing rods... Tarot cards and horoscopes). These (cursed/Occultic) objects can bring a dark presence into your home; they can be the source of a demonic infestation.

"Any object created (or book written) for Satanic use is a conduit for demonic spirits and reverberates Satanic power."

Demonic infestations are also found in places where serious demonic activity once took place: Satanic rituals, blood sacrifice… deviant drug use, suicide, abortion… séances, divination, black witchcraft… deviant sex crimes, rape, murder, prostitution… torture and violent death.

“Violence is the heartbeat of the Devil.”

A demonic infestation can cause fear, obsessive thoughts, emotional stress, anger/arguments… anxiety, depression, nightmares, insomnia, sleep paralysis… headaches, nausea, digestion problems… and other physical ailments due to a weakened immune system.

Some of the phenomena can include: hearing footsteps, voices, tapping on the walls... the opening and closing of doors, poltergeist activity… seeing shadows, apparitions and shadow men… the physical movement of objects, electrical problems… unnatural coldness, the shaking of beds… and bodies being touched, and scratched...

~ * * * ~

If you suspect a demonic infestation in your home:

1) Remove and destroy all objects that have anything to do with false religions [including statues of false gods (idols) and ceremonial masks], witchcraft, voodoo, spiritism, Santeria, Satanism and the Occult (including gothic jewelry and good luck charms)... remove and destroy all rock, heavy metal, rap and hip hop music (which have their basis in Satanism)... and all pornographic materials. These objects should be completely destroyed and sprinkled with holy water -- or buried with a blessed St. Benedict medal.

2) Use a House Cleansing Prayer.

3) Use Sacramentals (blessed medals, the crucifix... holy water, blessed oil and exorcized salt).

4) Spray Holy Water in every room, closet and hallway (from basement to attic).

5) Ask a priest to "exorcize" your home. (A "house blessing" can be less effective.)

6) If the “haunting” is not destructive, pray the Rosary in your home (with some friends) for the release of all purgatorial souls...

Never contact psychic-mediums
or paranormal investigators!
Always stay within the Catholic Church.
