    • From the dictionary in the Bible. I was looking at a definition of the Cherubim, the angels. The dictionary defines the Cherubim as: ‘the second of the choirs of angels, near the throne of God because of their more full knowledge in the scriptures, assures them as custodians of sacred places and as throne bearers; but never as God’s messenger’s to men.' I just get the feeling that I should know more what the Cherubim are all about.

    • Summary of Readings.

      I certainly cannot give a summary... whenever the Lord speaks, it’s a personal word and what I would take from it, you might take something totally different... so the word ‘summary’, maybe we shouldn't use it as often as we do, but I can tell you how I felt felt night.

      ‘I stand before Your Mercy, Lord’... that line really struck me, and then, when we started to about the anointing --- ‘Anointing Fall on Me’ --- I could just see, and I could feel for myself, a generous amount of oil being poured out over each person. As I felt it dripping down on myself... you know when you get wet, like in the rain, the first thing you want to do is wipe it away, it just doesn’t feel right you want to wipe it away. I think that is sometimes what we do with God’s anointing. I know I do. I really thought tonight about soaking it in.... what does it mean to really let it soak in and not brush it away. As it soaks in, like anything you put on your skin, it has an affect inside you. God’s anointing oil is an oil of healing, an oil of deliverance, an oil of gladness, an oil of joy; and that is what can transform us on the inside.

      I was very much aware of my own need, my desire for more, but my resistance... all at the same time. Like being pulled this way and that way. Then we sang, ‘As I stand before Your Holiness, I can only stand amazed’... this made me think of the brief moments, sometimes here, sometimes at home in my own little corner, those moments.... when you just FEEL the presence of God. You just KNOW that He is here, and you just KNOW that he is real, and you just KNOW that He loves you; and at that moment, nothing else matters --- it doesn’t matter what is happening in your life. That brief little moment is such a safe place, an encouraging place, and it gives you the strength to go on with the ‘other stuff’.

      In the scripture - ‘keep straight the path of your feet, and all your ways will be sure’ - as I read ‘the path of my feet ‘ what came to me was, walk the way of praise. Walk the way of praise was my first thought, how important it is to praise and how we struggle with that. ‘and our ways will be sure’ - it doesn’t say ‘perfect’, not at all; but we will be secure in the love and the guidance of the Lord.

      The next reading came up ‘offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise’... do that FIRST, then when I call on the Lord, He will deliver me in times of trouble. Coming back to the importance of thanksgiving and praise. The word ‘deliver’ jumped out at me too. What does the word ‘deliver’ mean? So, if I do this, if I praise the Lord then everything that bugs me is magically going to disappear from my life? No way. That is not necessarily what deliver means. In the END, everything is going to be OK, but it does not guarantee you a smooth ride through the process.

      Then we came to the reading ‘Be of the same mind as Christ’. That reading came up last week too... ‘each look to the interest of the other’.... can you imagine how this world would be if we thought about each other before we thought about ourselves? It made me think about how I like things done, what MY preferences are, how people can irritate ME; and I thought... you know, putting the interests of someone else first is not just their need (helping out in practical ways), but it means paying attention to what interests them, listening to something I may think I am not even interested in, but just giving them respect and paying attention to what is of interest to them. When I think about a couple of times when I was in such a situation, thinking I’m busy, I don’t have time for this, it’s getting late etc., but stayed anyway; in the end, I was blessed. I was really blessed.

      Jesus Christ is our ultimate example of putting the needs of others first (and the ‘others’ are you and me). He went like a quiet, gentle lamb, not defending Himself, not thinking about Himself, to suffer and die for us.

      The reading about John the Baptist seemed to answer it with his declaration of the power of Jesus, and in the humility of his ministry, acknowledging that -- it’s not about me. There is someone coming far greater than I, and I am not worthy even to undo His sandals.

      Jerry read a definition of the Cherubim and them being the second choir of angels at the throne. We know what the choirs of the angels do... they praise God! So it all comes back to our praising God, growing in our comfort level of praising God, together here with each other, but especially paying attention to that at home in our quiet moments, and in our difficult moments. How often have we heard it said that when things are really, really bad, just praise and praise and praise; and when you think you can’t take any more, praise and praise more!

      So, I just hope the Lord will give us all the grace to listen to His Word, and to let it take root in our lives.

      Father Bob Bedard. I love his saying... Praise begins as a decision, becomes a skill that we learn, and ends as a gift from God. Like nothing else, it brings us closer and closer to HIM.

    • Phillipians 2: 5-11
    • Revelations 19: 7-8, 16
    • 2 Timothy 4: 5-6

    • Summary of Readings.

      What very much struck me was, how God was calling to us: even though we have gone through this beautiful time of Lent and this beautiful Easter season. We started off with our Holy Father’s message to joy, to Christ is risen, and through the prophetic Word, and all the readings we heard ... I am the resurrection, I am the Life, and he who believes in Me will have new life. I am with you. I am.

      I feel like God is really calling -- you Mary, to really shake it up there. We say the words, I say the words ... yes, I believe, yes, this and that, and He is saying, “DO YOU REALLY?”

      We hear in Luke ... but it was the Spirit of the Lord that has been given to me, for the anointing, for the Good News to bring liberty for the captives. It’s the Spirit of the Lord in our acts. It was the boldness that stood out in Jesus, the boldness of His people that said ... ah, I recognize that they’re companions of Jesus. I think that is what God is calling us so strongly to do. Let the same mind be yours, let the attitude in Christ Jesus be yours, we heard in Philippians. And when we really start to do that, we rejoice and we get excited about this wedding day and we’re so connected with the Lord that we can sing, as we heard from the image of the white sheep and that we sing “Holy is the Lamb, glory to the Lamb.” and as Revelation said, “King of kings, and Lord of lords!” What struck me in Timothy is ... in my version it says ... As for you, always be sober, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, carry out your ministry fully.

      So, whether we are homemakers, whether we’re teachers, whether we’re part of a prayer group, we are looking to each other to be bold, to be companions of Jesus, with the Spirit of the Lord. I know that is why I come here; and I thank you all for all that we have been given tonight to ponder and to chew ..... until next Easter!

    • Isaiah 54:10
    • John 10: 7
    • Isaiah 55: 6

    • Summary of Readings.

      There were really some key phrases in the songs we sang at the beginning that set the tone for me for the evening. ‘Spirit of the Lord, set me free,’ when we sang that I was pondering... what is it to be really free? And when we sang ‘Come back to Me,’ come back to Me with all your heart... that invitation is always there. Jesus never leaves us. The Holy Spirit dwells within your heart and within mine. He does not leave... it is I who turn my back to Him, and every time I do that, I’m choosing self and I’m putting a break in my relationship with the Lord. But He is ever faithful, He is forever calling... come back to Me. He does not condemn, He does not shake His finger, He does not say... that’s it, that’s enough, I’ve had enough of you... He’s always calling back. It is God’s desire and plan for us, for you and for me, to live deeply our new life with Him.

      Then when Rose had that vision of us being in the boat in the storm, the storm was all about us, but we were praising together. I thought, wow, that’s what freedom is! When the troubles of life appear to consume you, your heart and your mind is fixed on Jesus and you are safe, you are safe. In this position, the only waves that will consume us, are the waves of God’s grace and glory. No matter how it appears to be... the waves of our present storm, they may trouble us, but they will never consume us if we are fixed, our gaze is fixed on the Lord.

      And I was thinking... just about that time I wrote down... it’s so hard for me to grasp how intimately He loves you and He loves me. We all say I love you man, that can be such a cultural thing, you know bye, love ya... but it’s not something that is a lose gesture, it’s a deep, truth... and then Filomena came up and said... He is our papa, He is our daddy and I thought oh my gosh... that’s how intimately He loves... far more than you and I can grasp. We love our children, we have a baby... a baby is born and we look at it and we melt... we really love. But that’s nothing compared to the way God loves you and me.

      And the readings just deepened it for me... trust in Me, so I can rescue you, trust in Me... My love for you will NEVER end... I will keep My promises... I am the door... What caught me there was ‘Jesus said to them again, I am the door’... I wonder how many times He had told them? I know how many times He has to tell me. But He does not weary and each time it’s said with gentleness and sincerity. And seek the Lord, call on Him while He is near. And so I thought, the biggest message I got this night was, when I’m in a hard place, when I’m in the midst of trouble... it can be so many things, when I am doubting, when I am discouraged, I need to go to the Lord and I need to pray out loud, I need to shout to the Lord, I need to call Him so that I can hear myself calling on Him... And I need to remind myself who I belong to... that I am chosen, I am redeemed, I am a child of God, and I have to remember that His desire and plan for me and for you, is to live deeply our NEW LIFE with Him.

We sang that song talking about Jesus being above all nature, above all wisdom, above all kingdoms, above all powers.... infinite in every way, and yet He chose to die on the cross for us and like a rose trampled on the ground. Sometimes I think we forget how much our God loves us and how much He wants us to love him. We were singing that song, ‘As the Deer Panteth’, Joyce told us that story (if I get any of this wrong correct me) but as the deer panteth for the water.... the deer, when it is ready to delver, to have it’s baby, it goes around rooting in the grass for this particular snake, and irritates it and makes it angry enough so that the snake will bite it. And when the snake bites it, it secretes a hormone that totally relaxes the deer’s muscles so that the baby deer can be born easily. But then as soon as that happens, the deer becomes extremely thirsty and is in such need of water that if it will not get to water, it will die. So as the deer panteth for the water, must find this water to live, so my soul panteth after thee, and I was thinking, do we REALLY long that much for our Lord.... long to worship Him.

      I think when I sing those songs, I’m so much more aware of my own poverty and my emptiness and you realize that you are quite far from where we should be. But the Lord does not judge us, He knows our poverty, He knows our emptiness and He says ‘come to Me just as you are.’ He wants us to trust Him and whatever we see in the world... the evils we see in the world... He is the searcher of the heart and the soul, it’s when He takes us through that wilderness that we really discover our poverty and our emptiness.

      He wants us to trust, put the emphasis on His kingdom and not always be worried about what tomorrow is going to bring but to truly trust in Him. He wants us to believe that He has given us His Holy Spirit, that we are new creations, that we can live this life He has called us to .... we have to trust in that. Jerry talked about the Holy Spirit, talked about the importance of that wisdom that the Lord wants us have, and I think it is in those wilderness experiences when we are open to the wisdom of the Lord... to really listen and hear what He has to say... to be open to anything new and different He has to say... like way back in the time of Peter when they had very strong belief in the meat they should not eat that there was an openness to the Holy Spirit and the wisdom of God. Nothing has changed. We still must be open to the wisdom of our Lord, and I think that a lot of that wisdom comes in our wilderness experience where we have to trust in our God and during those times to praise our God.

    • Isaiah 12: 2-8
    • Psalm 148: 13
    • Matthew 10: 29-31
    • Psalm 90: 11-12

    • Summary of Readings.

      Boy, I don’t know where to begin, there is so much. What I’m getting is we are a broken people, and the Lord is saying ‘don’t be afraid’. Beginning with the first song ‘I’ve found a new way of living’ ... I’ve found a new way of living, and, we have been given a new way of living in our Baptism .... by our Baptismal waters we received the gifts of the Spirit that we will hopefully, activate... or the Holy Spirit will activate in us when we ask.

      And that’s where... abiding in the vine... that’s where we get our life. And abiding in Him, who is the Vine, gives me the strength to carry, and He heals me, He saves me, He takes care of my woundedness. We’ve been given NEW LIFE by the Lord, and that’s... when we abide in the Vine, we experience the fruits of the Spirit which are joy and love and peace and kindness... and we all know those.

      And then, we were given a new heart, and I think about the psalmist, psalm 51 saying, O Lord, create in me a new heart. And in Ezekiel he says, I will give you a new heart. I will crush the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

      And then we sang ‘Jesus, Name above all names’ and that kept coming up... Jesus is the Name above all names. And Theresa’s image, the Lord standing in the midst of a huge assembly, watching as tears rolling down... He knows my pain, He knows your pain, He knows your anguish, He knows your fears, your frustrations... and He says, ‘Give it all to Me... roll it on to Me, I’ll take care of it. Come to Me, let Me rekindle in you the fire of My love...‘ because He is my first love. I only learn to love because He first loved me. If He didn’t love me, I do not have, on my own, the capacity to love. So He wants to rekindle in me and in you that love, and He wants to empower us with His grace.

      And it’s just amazing. This is like a conversation, a love letter... only a shadow of Your love... the Lord loves me so much, He loves you so much, we have no idea, we cannot grasp or fathom the depth of His love for us. We cannot fathom His purpose or plan for us. He loves us so much... we have dreams, but He has bigger dreams for us... absolutely phenomenal dreams for us!... and if we let Him, if we let Him and we go to Him and say OK, YOU DO WITH ME WHAT YOU WANT TO DO... INCREDIBLE THINGS WILL HAPPEN! He will take you on an amazing journey.

      And again, He keeps saying... and don’t be afraid... He knows, He knows my fears, but it keeps coming up because I’m broken. I am broken, I am wounded and I need His healing. So, He knows us so He keeps reminding us don’t be afraid... DO NOT BE AFRAID. And of course that came up in Mark 5... do not fear, only believe in the story of the 12 yr old who died and Jesus came and He gave her new life. He gave her new life... she had died and they were mourning and weeping. And He said, no, she only sleeps... but that’s Jesus breathing new life into her, just like He breathes new life into us. Jesus, by the same Spirit that He breathed new life into that 12 yr. old girl, He breathes new life into you and me today whenever I sin, whenever I transgress, He will breathe new life into me and into you. All we have to do is ASK. Just say okay, acknowledge my sin, forgive me of my sin, and He will forgive me... that’s it! And He totally forgets. He does not remember. Once He has forgiven me, He does not recall my sins.

      So, I will trust in Him again and not be afraid... Isaiah 12... and... it seems like, you know, He reminds us in psalm 148 to praise Him, to praise Him, praise Him, praise the Name of the Lord, the Name above all names... Jesus is the Name and every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is the Lord! (At this point, spontaneous praise and lifting of the name of Jesus broke out and kudos to Myra for responding and leading us through this move of the Spirit and bringing it to an appropriate end.)

      Thank you Jesus, for counting every hair on my head. Thank you Jesus for taking care of every facet of my life. In the Name of Jesus, AMEN.

    • Jude 1: 17-25
    • Luke 23: 50-56
    • Jeremiah 10: 6-7

    • Summary of Readings.

      What was coming all night long was something that keeps being repeated ... that we sing to God and He talks to us, we sing to God and He praises us, and it was sort of going back and forth and He was asking us to pass it on. And then when we sang ‘Come Back to Me’, He’s saying to us ... long have I waited for YOUR coming home to Me and living deeply our new life.

      And what I was struck by in the beautiful scriptures was that in Jeremiah the strong word us ..‘THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU O LORD! YOU ARE GREAT, YOUR NAME IS GREAT, WHO WOULD NOT FEAR YOU, O KING OF THE NATIONS ... that is Your due! We come here on Mondays, and then we have to live it out. I thought it was interesting, what struck me in Luke 23 ... Joseph, a good and righteous man, who though a member of the council, he had not agreed to their plan of action. It totally relates to the one in Jude ... .that he, he was waiting expectantly for the kingdom of God.

      So we believe in God, we come here, praise and learn how to praise, learn to read our scriptures and make it a part of us . And that is why we are always encouraged to take these home and have them IN us, because as we hear in Jude, and we know, when we go into the world, when we go out with friends and family that are not walking as closely to the Lord, we get put down or we feel like .. oh, it’s worth nothing and here we know that the world is going on for a very long time and will continue to. But in Jude it tells us, just remember these predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ ... they will say oh, you know, there are last times and we will be scoffed at .. all the ungodly stuff and all that they’re doing, but YOU, ME, US, BELOVED, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God and look forward to the mercy. And then be merciful, help others out and continue to have mercy on others.

      I just thought it was an absolute wonder how it just all tied in, cause it’s this, this daily living that we have ... you know we’vie had a death with our beloved Joyce, and you know, she is up in heaven and we wait expectantly, like Joseph, for the kingdom of God ... and I remember what Ron said, ‘If we truly believe,’ at Shane’s ceremony, ‘if we truly believe,’ Deacon Ron said, ‘and we believe that the kingdom of God is for us, and for all those who have gone before us, it’s their birthday.‘

      So we can celebrate that, and we can hold on to with our scriptures to know, that God knows what is happening, and as we know Him, then we will praise Him, be growing in our Faith, and be praying in the Holy Spirit for others..... that’s what I got.

    • John 8: 12-15
    • 1 Samuel 2: 2-3
    • Psalm 3: 1-4

    • Summary of Readings.

      What touched me from all these readings is ... one thing is Rose’s prophecy ... Jesus wants us to be close to Him. He wants us to bring our brothers and sisters close to Him, and He said .. if we know His love, then I’m sure we want to share it with others. If we go out for a movie, to a restaurant and we eat good food, we come and tell our friends. So if we come here and we have got blessings from the Lord, why don’t we go and tell our friends? The whole world is suffering out there. Let us tell them that Jesus loves them and bring them here.

      He wants us to bring people here and His blessings, rivers of blessings will be flowing on them. So if we can share this love that Jesus gives to us and Jesus is a magnet ... He is going to draw them. We have to just show them the way, show them that there is a prayer meeting happening here. People are hungry for the love of Jesus.

      Another thing is what Jerry said .. we are arrogant, Jesus thinks that we are arrogant .. maybe we are, maybe we think ‘oh I am better than them’ ... sometimes I think ‘oh, she does THAT, I don’t do THAT... BUT, I do something else, so that’s our arrogance....or even to think that I am very holy is very arrogant, I think. So maybe we need to change our ways .. we, each one knows, what arrogance we have inside us ... and I always feel that Jesus or God has a bubble around us ... He never lets anything bad happen to us ... if we just trust in Him, if we just let Him take care, let Him take charge ... but we are afraid to give charge because we like control. So if we do give charge to Jesus, everything will fall in place.

      In Sirach, what I got was that we would be put to the test, and sure enough, those who are closest to God always suffer, but we always think ‘why do we get so much of trouble, why do we get into trouble?' Now, I have a small homework for you ... all of you.

      When you go home, think of 3 things that happened to you that were really very bad....when you thought you were never going to get out of it. It was so bad that we thought ‘oh Jesus, Lord what are You doing, I pray every day, what are You doing, can’t You see, can’t You see what is going on in my life?

      And then, think of 5 good things that came out of each of the bad things....AND THANK GOD FOR THAT....an attitude of gratitude...thank God for that, because once we get out of that trouble, we forget what we have gone through...when we are in that trouble, we cry, we pray, we scream, we do all sorts of things...we go to sleep and we never wake up. But when we are out of that, we never think of thanking God. So, 3 things that we have been in a total mess, and 5 things that came good out of it that we can thank God for it.
