Notice the similarity of the video image which derives from the shroud and image of Jesus in the sun. I’ve made a black and white adjustment which I think is similar to the depiction of Jesus in the video.
Free will, suffering and Marriage.
Listening to a theological discussion on the proverbs and book of job …I was struck about the moral relationship between God and humans.
Now, I am no Bible expert. I have awareness that you can know the wisdom of God from a point of humility and nothingness. A child can have the full awareness of God and the knowledge of his relationship without prideful theological swelling in the mind. The pride of mind is something we have to tangle with in our lives or disentangle from in Purgatory. Prideful thought without the moral balance of the humble heart becomes matter as much as flamboyant wealth.
God’s relationship with us acts symbolically in our lives. He teaches us by events in our lives. We don’t read this and learn this. Now Catholics wrestle with suffering I believe more than other denominations. Many sects reject the necessity and wisdom of suffering. Catholics have full knowledge through the sacraments. This knowledge comes via symbolism not by gaining knowledge of the written word. Also to note nearly all cases of stigmata are experienced by Catholics.
The relationship between God and humans is parent to child. The love though is much stronger that God feels than we do for our own children. This we will understand after we pass from earth.
Free will is the big component in our relationship with God. Free will is the ultimate gift of love as it is the opposite of abusive authority. On earth, because of free will ,time and space we mostly struggle to live in the divine will ultimately wished for our souls by God.
In the messages my wife received in 2019 God the Father shared his hope of souls turning to him but only to find a sense of dejection and sadness when a soul rejects him or isn’t ready. We got to experience the very human feelings and reactions that Jesus and God the Father experience. This was a revelation but then one realises that we are made in his image so our humanity comes from God it’s not seperate. God the Father feels sadness and variations in feeling. The passion of Jesus in his suffering was very human. Jesus felt psychological pain in accusation rejection and humiliation along with the physical pain.
Between confessions the mind can go through different almost bi polar reactions. This occurs due to sin. Once we sin then this effects our ability to carry our crosses. Then we can go through an internal struggle which finds us fighting with the unfairness of our cross. Having awareness of our crosses and suffering helps the process in our spiritual journeys. I’ve heard it said that God will correct those he loves alot. I believe calmly accepting crosses without complaint like the son of God will lessen the need for God’s adjustments in your life.
My wife isn’t a cerebral person she accepts her pains. She didn’t learn this intellectually it came naturally since she was conceived. All prophets have natural humility this is why I was never chosen to be a prophet. I was given other gifts to help us both as a partnership. Jesus loves her simplicity and nothingness. My journey is to develop humility by suffering and also suffer for the sake of other souls.
So this symbolic drama in all its viscerally real mixture of grace and suffering plays out in all our lives. We make it easier for God by accepting our crosses which God has planted to correct our defects.
Great tips for marriage partners is to pray the rosary at the same time; even down to synchronisation of each word. Marriage is the becoming of one flesh. The synchronization will represent that symbolically. The devil hates this and will in all subtlety seek for couples to pray separately. Both wearing the brown scapular will also symbolise unity which is powerful for protecting a union. Our Blessed Mother can ringfence your marriage by approaching her as a married couple.

God has placed us in an apartment five minutes in distance from the church we were married in. It wasn’t really until after and in time of reflection that I had noticed we married on the feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
We have attended this church over the last ten years. At times we’ve been a thorn in the side of others in the church who have much more influence and power than we do. I had requested a kneeler bench for communion in 2015…and the priest granted this. I faced some initial hostility but it was embraced over time.
The pandemic came and this created a dividing line between some within families and friendships. Also this division was within the church. A small tiny minority then attended Latin Masses. At our particular church the pandemic guidelines are still in place two years after the pandemic has gone. There is a stronghold of fear that controls aspects of the function of the ceremony. Masked guards stand about policing others. Fear turns into a ceremonial intimidation.
The manner in which the Eucharist is administered now causes Jesus so much pain. This is how it can be described: Jesus’s presence hovers literally at the tabernacle. He is encased, hostage to our errors in free will in a state that could be described as a painful sleep paralysis. When you wake up at night and you are fully conscious but you cannot move. On top of this add the injury He feels by the lack of reverence carried out by those He loves. It’s happening blindfolded as people are led in the wrong direction. In the sacrificial revisiting of Calgary, He is being pushed, shoved and grabbed again. This is why when Jesus spoke to my wife initially He spoke about His ‘pain’ and how awful it is for Him. In our ignorance we didn’t understand this at the time.
Our Lords pain is for two reasons:
1. The rejection of Jesus and the heightened level of sin
2. The lack of reverence in administration of the Eucharist
With fluctuations of reports but no definite outbreak the church is still trapped in a cloud of fear. I would say policy decisions are arbitrarily actioned. The font at the entrance of the church now has water removed. I asked the priest if holy water could be placed back in the font. Surely if people are concerned about infection they can avoid using the font. This will give a just option to those who want to use Holy Water on entrance and exit..
While at home I gazed at a picture of Jesus while in prayer. These words came : ‘ do not fight them’. Jesus had mentioned that I am similar to St Peter in nature because I have ‘fire in me ‘ for Our Lord. St Peter was told to stand down during the arrest of Jesus. St Peters long road of growth via suffering stood before him.
Jesus in Galgary stood down and Peter learned to stand down like Our Lord. No matter how upset we get at the state of the church we have to leave it to Jesus as he will be the judge.
One way we can take action is to pray for our parishes and priests.
