A posioned dagger

A posioned dagger

A poisoned dagger   Social justice cannot be attained by violence. Violence kills what it intends to create.--Pope John Paul II Violence comes under many guises. It is easy to come up with a good reason for doing just about anything. We can confront someone with the truth, not to help them, but to hurt, confuse, and as an act of domination. Christians can forget that easily enough. It is as easy as falling off of a log…..at least it is for me.   People don’t often think of words as weapons

The Ghost in the Dream Paul Dale Roberts, HPI's Esoteric Detective Halo Paranormal Investigations *Snip* Sacramento Paranormal Help *Snip*     Michael Eugene Sanders called the Paranormal Hotline and told me that he is dealing with a female spirit that committed suicide in his home.  He has seen this female spirit 3 times at the foot of his bed and she is usually holding something that is glowing.  Michael then tells me that she has now entered into his dream.  On 6/16
On Doubt (Feast of St. Thomas)

On Doubt (Feast of St. Thomas)

On Doubt (Feast of St. Thomas) A faith without some doubts is like a human body with no antibodies in it. People who blithely go through life too busy or indifferent to ask the hard questions about why they believe as they do will find themselves defenseless against either the experience of tragedy or the probing questions of a smart skeptic. A person's faith can collapse almost overnight if she failed over the years to listen patiently to her own doubts, which should only be discarded after

The Theads of Our Lives

The Theads of Our Lives

The threads of our lives (Journaling)   Sometimes when I think of God, the image of a weaver comes into my mind. Then I imagine an infinite number of threads being brought together to make some sort of tapestry. All kinds of threads; some thick, others so thin that you can barely see them, some of the strings so strong that they can’t be broken, and others so fragile that the gentleness touch would destroy them unless handled with the greatest of care. Colorful strands, as well as plain. Som

Anxiety and Depression- A Spiritual Rx (Br. Mark)   -----Below are some notes for the retreat giving this weekend. It was a good group and they were easy to interact with. I was nervous before giving this retreat, it was the first time for me dealing with this subject, so I hope that I did not say anything that caused anyone discomfort that attended. I make some notes, but do not usually read them, so there are times when I may say something that is actually way off base. One participant this

Learning to read the Tarot

After teaching Introductory and Intermediate tarot classes for several years, I was asked by the keener students to prepare and deliver an advanced program. I formatted an advanced level into twelve all-day workshops. Completion of the twelve led to Certification as Tarot Master (CTM) recognized by certifying bodies in Canada and the US. The topics covered in these workshops were a deep dive into reading for more complex client questions such as health, relationships, and spiritual directio

Uneasiness in prayer

Uneasiness in prayer

Uneasiness in prayer   You think that your inability to pray without distractions is an obstacle to My grace. Were that so, I would not have been able to sanctify a great number of those whom My Church honors as saints. Distractions, when they are not entertained willfully, are no obstacle to My work in a soul. My grace passes through them to touch the center of the soul wherein all is still and in readiness for My healing and sanctifying touch. Come to Me   A Benedictine Monk. In Sinu Jesu:

He who sees into the depths (Yet I Keep on Truckin)

He who sees into the depths (Yet I Keep on Truckin)   If love is the greatest spiritual gift, then it would seem that if Christians want to be healers of hearts and souls, then we should pray for this gift, greater even than miracles, which can be flashy and then forgotten in time.   However, to experience being seen and loved by another, to understand that one's depths have been gazed upon and still loved, brings about the deepest of healing; for nothing needs to be hidden.   There is

Inattention towards faith

Inattention towards faith

Inattention towards faith   We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope. Martin Luther King, Jr.   We can lose something valuable by inattention or carelessness; these are actual choices. In order to keep what is precious alive and vibrant, it must be worked for. Be it friendships, marriage, career, and for me what is most important, faith. People can live without being aware that they have a Spirit and that it needs to be attended to. If not it remains childish becaus

The struggle with self​

The struggle with self​

The struggle with self It is a true honor to meet the many people who come to the Monastery to make a retreat and to be able to share and learn from them. I have yet to meet a man or a woman who is not going through some sort of deep interior struggle. Some may not always know that until they slow down and begin the road to deeper self-knowledge and a desire to connect deeply with God. Sometimes, it is when people discover that there is another way that the pain that they take for normal bec
