Update on Cloistered Sisters in NJ

If you recall, on January 2nd of this year, I posted a prayer request for the the Dominican Nuns of the Perpetual Rosary in Union City, NJ. Click HERE

Recently, someone left an update in the comments section of that post and I'd like to share it with you:
Post-Easter update, Monastery of the Perpetual Rosary, Dominican nuns, Union City, NJ: I phoned the monastery and spoke with Sr. Carol Marie OP, the sub-prioress, to find out what happens next.

It is resignedly accepted that the Union City foundation must be closed. They received attention within their Order, from a report in MONIALIBUS, the international newsletter of the Second Order of cloistered Dominican nuns (recommended- you can find it online). At the time, the OP promoter of the nuns, fr. Manuel Merten OP, reported on his visitation at Union City. When he visited, Union City had a community of six women. The oldest was over ninety, and had been solemn professed for over sixty years, always at that location. She wanted to remain, die, and be buried in Union City. Other nuns accepted the alternative of moving on and being absorbed into the Dominican nuns of a different monastery somewhere else.

Here is how things stood at Easter this year. Sr. Mary Clare OP, the elderly nun referenced above, died last year and is buried in Union City, so her wish was granted. The oldest of the five surviving nuns is Sr. Mary Gemma OP. Physically too weak to go back and forth through the cloister, she is excused from community events, and confined to her monastery cell. The prioress, Sr. Mary Jordan OP, apparently afflicted with the complications of progressed diabetes, cannot walk. She was graciously admitted to the nursing care facility which the Caldwell NJ congregation of active Dominican sisters reserve for their own elderly and infirm women.
Sr. Mary Charlotte recently hurt herself in a fall. The physicians can no longer be persuaded to visit the enclosure to give first aid to an injured "moniale"/nun. She had to be sent to a hospital and remains there while the nuns wait for the doctor to get the X-rays back from the lab, to determine if Sr. Charlotte has any fractures.

If you are keeping track, we have accounted for four of six women, including the one who went home to her Lord last year.
Sub-Prioress Sr. Carol Marie OP, and Sr. Maria Aquinas OP, at about seventy years of age the youngest in the community, are now the only two able-bodied women in the Union city foundation.

Sr. Carol tells me, that discernment for their community proceeds slowly with many interruptions. Their short list of "next homes" is: Syracuse, NY; Hunts Point, the Bronx, NY; and Lancaster, PA. With each of these Dominican monasteries, one nun from Union City has been dispatched to live with them in the cloister for a period of two weeks, then return to her house and disclose to her sisters what she observed.

Obviously, illness and injury complicate and delay the process by which Union City must be closed, and the surviving nuns absorbed into another monastery of the Second Order of St Dominic's Order of Preachers. Please, keep these nuns in your prayers.

Thanks Sue.

If you truly want to help the soul of your neighbor, you should approach God first with all your heart. Ask him simply to fill you with charity, the greatest of all virtues;with it you can accomplish what you desire.

Thoughts to Ponder


Thanks Froggy!

Practice makes you perfect so be careful what you practice

Love dissolves hate. Kindness melts cruelty. Compassion calms passion. Cooperation evokes love and when we bow, others bend. This creates harmony.

A racing mind that reacts sensitively to little things indicates thinking that has lost its spiritual strength. Meditation restores that power.

Whatever you give comes back to you. Whatever you take will not stay with you.

Success comes in cans, failure in cant's.

New DVD Collection - The Catholic Mass Revealed


Normally, I do not post about things for sale. However, today I am making an exception. My friend Sue shared a link to a DVD collection which artistically demonstrates and teaches about the beauty of the Catholic Mass.

Take a moment to view the clips and audio samples.


The mission of Thy Kingdom Come is to promote a renewal of love for the Catholic Church by deepening the commitment and understanding of the people of God. With this renewed commitment, we aim to open and strengthen society’s participation in the Christian life, and establish a sense of hope in the future of the Catholic Church.

We believe that only through personal relationships can a sense of community be reestablished that will awaken in lay people the commitment to follow through on their path to holiness with a sense of purpose, humility and joyful anticipation. We hope that our projects will provide an opportunity to create these relationships in local communities.

Though many educational opportunities exist in the Church, many lay people do not take advantage of these opportunities. To accomplish our goals, our material must be in a format that is easy to access, simple to navigate, visually appealing, emotionally moving and, most importantly, compiled into truth-filled presentations.

Over time, Thy Kingdom Come will create projects that will be an invaluable resource to the Church, both pastors and lay faithful, and society.

Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Sacred Heart
Shared by Sue.

Act of Consecration to the Most Holy Sacred Heart

by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

I, ( your name. . .), give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ my person and my life, my actions, pains, and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being save to honor, love, and glorify the Sacred Heart.

This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him.

I therefore take Thee, O Sacred Heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of death.

Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God Thy Father, and turn away from me the strokes of His righteous anger. O Heart of love, I put all my confidence in Thee, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty; but I hope for all things from Thy goodness and bounty.

Do Thou consume in me all that can displease Thee or resist Thy holy will. Let Thy pure love imprint Thee so deeply upon my heart that I shall nevermore be able to forget Thee or to be separated from Thee. May I obtain from all Thy loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Thee, for in Thee I desire to place all my happiness and all my glory, living and dying in true bondage to Thee.

Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Of the many promises Our Lord Jesus Christ did reveal to Saint Margaret Mary in favor of souls devoted to His Sacred Heart the principal ones are as follows:

1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
2. I will give peace in their families.
3. I will console them in all their troubles.
4. I will be their refuge in life and especially in death.
5. I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.
6. Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
8. Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfection.
9. I will bless those places wherein the image of
My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and venerated.
10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
11. Persons who propagate this devotion shall
have their names eternally written in my Heart.
12. In the excess of the mercy of my Heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.

Sacred Heart of Jesus an offering prayer - The Raccolta

O Divine Heart of Jesus, grant, I beseech Thee, eternal rest to the souls in purgatory, final grace to all who are to die today, true repentance to sinners, the light of faith to pagans, Thy blessing to me and to all who are mine.

To Thee, O most loving Heart of Jesus, do I therefore commend all these souls, and for them I offer all Thy merits, together with the merits of the most Blessed Mother and of all the saints and angels, and also together with all the Sacrifices of the Mass, the Holy Communions, the prayers and good works that are made today throughout the entire Christian world.

Something I've Always Suspected...Now Confirmed


Planned Parenthood of Western Washington, a local affiliate of the nation's largest abortion business, is claiming to have a financial relationship with eBay, one of the top web sites on the Internet. Though confirmation hasn't been able to be obtained, PPWW claims a Planned Parenthood affiliate could get as much as $5,000 from the company. ARTICLE
After boycotting Ebay for a few years, I recently started buying from them again...mainly looking for baseball cards for my dad. Originally, we boycotted because they were selling consecrated Hosts and also first class relics. Then I started hearing rumors that they were supplying money for ESCR.

With this new reason to boycott, my dad will just have to find his missing baseball cards somewhere else.

Divine Mercy for Physically and Sexually Abused Children

Divine MercyDivine Mercy I beg of You to protect all those helpless children who are physically and sexually abused, especially by those whose duty it is to guide and protect them on earth. Send Your enveloping cloak of Mercy and wrap it around those poor children and enfold them in Your love and protection. Send forth Your rays of blood and water to cleanse and renew the souls of those who perpetrate these vile acts of Satan. Let there be a way to get Your powerful Image of Divine Mercy into the homes of these sad families, from where graces will flow as You promise, and they shall be renewed. O Blood and Water which gushed from the heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, we trust in You. Amen

A Saint for Abused Children

St. Germain Cousin
After reading the story of St. Germain Cousins (Germana) of Pribac, I have no doubt she is the patron saint of abused children.

1579-1601, Feast day p June 15, Canonized in 1867 by Pope Pius IX,

The story of little Germain is so heart wrenching, it would make the hardest of hearts weep. She was a little girl who tended the sheep for her father and cruel stepmother. She is described as a very unattractive little girl who was half-starved and her body covered with ugly bruises. She was forced to go around barefooted. She was a cripple and had only rags to clothe her. Yet, she had a very sweet, generous and kind nature and she never complained against the injustices and cruelty done to her.

For some reason, her stepmother hated this little girl. Germain never knew kindness or love from a human being in her short live. The only one who loved her was God and His blessed Mother and she loved them.

She was not permitted inside the house and would be forced to sleep in the barn with the cattle to keep her warm. She wasn't permitted to come in contact with her half-siblings. Her stepmother forbade it. It is not known why her father permitted the treatment of this girl. One theory is that he really wasn't her father but took her into his home when her own parents died. It is really not known.

The villagers also treated her badly as they seemed to follow the cruel stepmother's example.

Towards the end of her life, her saintly nature caught the attention of the village and even her stepmother tried to be kind in her own way. But it was too late for God rewarded this suffering little soul by bringing her to live in Heaven.

The Underground Church in China

Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Kung
Because I am one-fourth Chinese, it grieves me that China, continues to persecute our Chinese Catholic brothers and sisters, who are loyal to Rome.

As you know, two Catholic churches exist in China. Like I mentioned above, one is the Church that is loyal to the Holy Father and is known as the "underground church". The other is the state run church known as the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Their bishops and priests are loyal to the Chinese government.

On Good Friday, I had a chance to catch up on my reading of Catholic magazines and newspapers. I read two articles regarding the underground church. One is A Tale of Two Bishops and it appeared in the February 2002 issue of Crisis Magazine

It tells the story of Ignatius Pin-Mei Cardinal Kung and his fellow priest Father Fan, now bishop. Both priests were imprisoned and tortured for their faith. However, both priest chose a separate and distinct path.

The other article was also in Crisis Magazine and it appeared in their December 2005 issue. It is entitled Outlaw: One Priest in the Underground Chinese Church. The story is about a Catholic man who was imprisoned for the crime of belonging to the Legion of Mary.

I hope you take the time to read both of the articles.

It was sad to read in the first article that religious communities such as Maryknoll and the Jesuits contribute large amounts of money to the state run church. The underground church is virtually forgotten. It's main source of help comes from the organization run by the late Cardinal Kung's nephew Joseph Kung...The Cardinal Kung Foundation. Our family made the hard decision to end our monetary support of Maryknoll based on that information a few years ago. It was hard because we have good friends in that religious community both priests, brothers and sisters. However, we couldn't in good conscience continue to help them help the enemies of the Church.

If you want to help, please remember to pray for the loyal and persecuted Church in China. Also, consider donating to the Cardinal Kung Foundation

More on Divine Mercy

St. Faustina

The 3 o'clock Prayer

You expired, O Jesus,
but the source of life gushed forth for souls
and an ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.
O Fount of Life,
unfathomable Divine Mercy,
envelop the whole world
and empty Yourself out upon us.
O Blood and Water,
which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus
as a fount of mercy for us,
I trust in You.


The following is from St. Michael's Center for the Blessed Virgin Mary Please visit their site for more details.

Canon Ignacy Rozycri, Doctor of Dogmatic Theology appointed by Pope John Paul II to examine the revelations to Blessed Faustina, came to the conclusion that the extraordinary grace promised by Jesus on the Feast of Mercy is a gift of grace equalled only by the grace of Holy Baptism. This means that on this day your soul can be renewed as on the day of baptism, so that if you died immediately after receiving this grace you would go straight to heaven with no purgatory to serve at all. (In other words, so far as that matter is concerned He raised it (the Holy Communion on the Feast of Mercy) to the rank of a "second Baptism". "The soul that will go to confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment" (II.138).

Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. He gave St. Faustina an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena, saving for the last day the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent of whom He said:

"These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.' The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy."

In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:

"On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls."

Prayer to be Merciful

St. Faustina

From Marians of the Immaculate Conception

Love one another as I have loved you...John:15-12

Prayer to be Merciful to Others

This prayer gives us a true measure of our mercy, a mirror in which we observe ourselves as merciful Christs. We can make it our morning invocation and our evening examination of conscience.

O Most Holy Trinity! As many times as I breathe, as many times as my heart beats, as many times as my blood pulsates through my body, so many thousand times do I want to glorify Your mercy.

I want to be completely transformed into Your mercy and to be Your living reflection, O Lord. May the greatest of all divine attributes, that of Your unfathomable mercy, pass through my heart and soul to my neighbor.

Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbors’ souls and come to their rescue.

Help me, that my ears may be merciful, so that I may give heed to my neighbors’ needs and not be indifferent to their pains and moanings.

Help me, O Lord, that my tongue may be merciful, so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbor, but have a word of comfort and forgiveness for all.

Help me, O Lord, that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbors and take upon myself the more difficult and toilsome tasks.

Help me, that my feet may be merciful, so that I may hurry to assist my neighbor, overcoming my own fatigue and weariness. My true rest is in the service of my neighbor.

Help me, O Lord, that my heart may be merciful so that I myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbor. I will refuse my heart to no one. I will be sincere even with those who, I know, will abuse my kindness. And I will lock myself up in the most merciful Heart of Jesus. I will bear my own suffering in silence. May Your mercy, O Lord, rest upon me.

You Yourself command me to exercise the three degrees of mercy. The first: the act of mercy, of whatever kind. The second: the word of mercy — if I cannot carry out a work of mercy, I will assist by my words. The third: prayer — if I cannot show mercy by deeds or words, I can always do so by prayer. My prayer reaches out even there where I cannot reach out physically.

O my Jesus, transform me into Yourself, for You can do all things (163).

Divine Mercy Sunday Information - Fallen Away Catholics

Divine Mercy

The following was sent to Sue who was good enough to share it:

Dear Sue,

I wrote an article aimed at getting Fallen-away Catholics back to
Church. I thought that your prayer warriors might be able to use it for their family or may want to publish it.

Sincerely yours for all souls,

Robert R. Allard, Director
Apostles of Divine Mercy




Despite recent attempts at discrediting the Catholic Church, many fallen-away Catholics will soon be returning to the practice of their faith. The reason: the Church's new feast on the Sunday after Easter. What new feast you might be saying? It is the "Feast of The Divine Mercy". The Catholic Church has been celebrating this feast ever since the Vatican had made it official on April 30th in the Jubilee year 2000. Why would every Catholic want to come back, you might be asking? It is the promise that Our Lord Jesus Himself made for total and complete forgiveness of sins and punishment on that day, even to the most terrible sinner imaginable. God in His great mercy is giving mankind a last chance for salvation. It is time for Catholics to get serious about their faith!

When did Jesus make this promise and how does one get it? Jesus left all the details in a diary that He commanded Saint Faustina to write in the 1930's. It was her job to record everything that He wanted mankind to know about His mercy before He returns to judge the world. To get this great promise one has to go to Confession and
then receive Holy Communion on that Feast of The Divine Mercy, which
has now been called Divine Mercy Sunday throughout the whole
Church. Jesus said, "Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment." (Diary, 300) Jesus was talking about receiving Holy Communion in a perfect state of grace. To achieve this state of grace we must go and make a very good Confession.

How many today receive Holy Communion with souls stained with mortal sins? When a person receives the true Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus in Holy Communion without first going to Confession to cleanse their souls, that soul is going even deeper into sin. Many have not confessed their sins in a long time so this
special promise of a complete pardon is a great incentive to go and confess.

In Saint Faustina's diary, she recorded that Jesus also indicated that He Himself is actually right there waiting for us in the confessional. He told her, "When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the
soul meets the God of mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity." (1602)

Jesus knew that people would need to hear these words today, so He went on to say "Come with faith to the feet of My representative...and make your confession before Me. The person of the priest is, for Me, only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a
priest that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it with My light." (1725) "Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy." (1602)

Many feel that their sins are unforgivable but, Jesus said, "Were a soul like a decaying corpse, so that from a human standpoint, there would be no hope of restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full. In the Tribunal of Mercy (the sacrament of Confession) ...the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated." (1448) "Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy." (1602) Every sin imaginable could be forgiven by Him!

So many people are weighed down by sin and their prideful nature keeps them away from the confession of their sins. They are living in misery. Jesus said, "Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God's mercy! You will call out in vain, but it will be too late." (1448) "Tell aching mankind to snuggle
close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace." (1074) "There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy." (1273) Jesus came to restore sinners and one would be foolish to turn away.

On the evening of His resurrection Jesus appeared to His Apostles and the first thing that He did was to give them the power to forgive sins (John 20:19-31). This was done through the power of the Holy Spirit. For sure it wasn't the Lord's intention just for the Apostles to forgive sins, but rather, for that authority to be passed down through the Holy Spirit to all our future Bishops and Priests. That is why Confession is so much of an uplifting experience; we are actually receiving heavenly graces and the forgiveness of sins from the Lord Jesus Himself!

Most people haven't spent much time thinking about the future. Some might think that they are quite brilliant and successful in this life, but what is that as compared to eternity? The father of lies has everyone focused on this life while not thinking about what happens in the eternal life. If you really want to be wise, think about where you are going to spend eternity. We will be there for quite a long time. Many do not believe in the fires of hell. Unfortunately, those are the ones that will usually end up
there. Be wise, think about it, and take action now!

Remember Our Lord's words about Divine Mercy Sunday "I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to
Confession (before) and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment."

One should make an attempt to go to Confession before Divine Mercy Sunday. We must also remember the precepts of the Church which are:
1. Attend Mass every Sunday and every Holy Day.
2. Confess serious sins at least once a year.
3. Receive Holy Communion at least during the Easter season.
4. Observe all the days of fast and abstinence.
5. Provide for the material needs of the Church.

It would be a mistake for someone who has been away from the Church to think that they could return just for that one day. Our Lord knows our intentions and part of making a good Confession is intending never to sin again. Missing Mass on Sundays and Holy days offends Our Lord very much and is a serious sin. We need to be serious about our faith and do the best we can to help to support our Church and to
help Jesus to save as many souls as possible before He returns to judge the world. Get a fresh start and become a good and active Catholic again. Be very generous with your time, talent, and treasure. Jesus needs you today.

Our Lord also said, "I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for Me. The first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy...." (742) A good act of mercy would be to tell everyone about this great feast. Some people have been away from the Catholic Church for a long time. What
better reason to come back, at this very moment when we can be granted the complete forgiveness of sins and punishment?

Visit or call your nearest Catholic Church and find out when Confessions are available. When you enter the confessional, close your eyes and talk to Jesus. He will respond through the priest with words of mercy. You will walk out feeling as light as a feather and with a great weight lifted off of you. You will be made whole again. Don't wait; this could very well be your "Last hope of Salvation".
