  • His (Family)

    An image formed so long ago
    Its beauty and dignity unsurpassed
    Bestowed upon creatures incomparably blessed
    Who now dare presume to alter the flow

    The image is threatened as never before
    Fervor to change its essence exists
    Willingness to concede is most evident
    Integrity corrupted from surface to core

    Three united in faith, love and joy
    Mother and father with Father above
    Meant to be bound till one Earth departs
    Are under attack by the deceivers ploy

    Whether adopted or conceived
    Cherished shall they be and realizing that
    A mother and a father should be the seed
    Of this tenet they should not be deceived
    Vatican II - the Catholic deformation.

    All glory and honor and praise be to our God and loving Father!

  • His Sorrow

    We presume to know of a far better way
    But our devices will falter somewhere, someday
    Surely there will come a time, a time to pay
    We don't care, our chosen course we shall stay
    In light of His sorrowful passion, asking for wisdom is the best way

    Contemplate well, be wise with our choices
    Discern the good path, don't heed the tainted voices
    Interpret His teachings with faithful discretion
    Do not falter and succuмb to the common obsession
    In light of His sorrowful passion, be thankful to God every day

    Share His blessings with one and for all, conquer our greed
    Remember from Whom it is given, and take only for need
    Your earned spiritual merits freely offer to Mary
    For she knows where to place them for seed
    In light of His sorrowful passion, hold nothing back, just give it away

    Presumptuous are we who question His plan
    Hallowed be the wonderous union of woman and man
    Each to love and to cherish until one life departs
    Defend to the end, the Divine will as much as you can
    In light of His sorrowful passion, follow His will and enter the fray

    Chaste should we be, before the big choice
    The "I do" we spoke, He remembers our voice
    To tear the union apart does ravage His heart
    Any other style union upon us don't foist
    In light of His sorrowful passion, His definition of marriage, be on our tray

    Temptation is there, it etches away, seeking our defeat
    Its dominion so great, it captivates His earthly elite
    Preach the doctrine of God, not the twisted version of the temptor
    Pray to lead well the masses while following His holy scepter
    In light of His sorrowful passion, cherish His church, let it not sway

    Dare we to clone in His image, but lacking a soul
    Tempt we then our God, the being to be made whole
    A creation such as this, a new life which we stole
    Our pride do we praise, or our Maker do we console
    In light of His sorrowful passion, I know you not, don't hear Him say

    Cherish the unarrived, lovingly embrace they who are old
    For our life is His gift, pure and precious, all from the same mold
    Turn not the womb into a gruesome cσncєnтrαтισn cαмρ
    The decision is His alone as to when goes dark our worldly lamp
    In light of His sorrowful passion, treasure all life and follow His way

    Should we question why one is made girl or one a boy
    With His decision from above do we possess the wisdom to toy
    Does that infer that the maker has created a grievous mistake
    The image of beings that He has made, we dare to remake
    In light of His sorrowful passion, accept what is given and follow His way

    Genetic manipulation, cross species and mechanical man
    Don't limit your imagination, do try all that you can
    By defiling My temple you are forcing Me out
    But remember Who'll have the last word, the final shout
    In light of His sorrowful passion, He is our light, He opened the way

    Our fellow believers should all take heart
    In knowing that afterwards, He'll set us apart
    When we leave this place, we'll do so in grace
    Pray for us all, that we may then see His sweet face
    In light of His sorrowful passion, eternal life was given that day

    If while reading this now you say you feel hurt
    Imagine My pain, crucified, covered in blood and dirt
    Will you visit me just once to ease My distress
    Or ignore Me completely in sheer haughtiness
    In light of His sorrowful passion, soften your heart and kneel down to pray
    Vatican II - the Catholic deformation.

    All glory and honor and praise be to our God and loving Father!

  • Code of Silence

    Bride of Christ we will defend
    We are here for Him to send
    For the souls that need to mend
    This unholy deception, it must end

    The violated they saw fit to scare
    Were told their stories not to share
    Although 'twas said that they did care
    Their consolation, anything but fair

    Holy Spirit please send your light
    Expose the secrecy to our sight
    With Your power peer into the night
    Be our guide throughout this fight

    Through our anguish and our pain
    The love of Christ we always maintain
    Our souls they sought for their own gain
    Decades of abuse, from sons of Cain

    Can they not hear our pleading calls
    That loudly echo through the holy halls
    Of course their empire, it must not fall
    Vowed to be defended by one and for all

    The defiled who listen with open ear
    Rarely hear that justice will cost dear
    The very souls that should be drawn near
    Are ghostly shadows in the temptor's mirror

    How much faith have they wrecked then
    In secret to set Barabbas free once again
    To embrace the darkness as an old friend
    Crucify Christ time after time, without end



    Code of Silence was penned in response to the Diocese of Buffaloing's continued practice of releasing unflattering news in "carefully metered doses after being found out". They should not follow the laws of man but should instead be following the laws of God. Pride, power, money and a fear for their existence govern their decisions. Non celibate clergy, and those who cover it up are committing adultery since they are betrothed to the bride of Christ. Their denial of offenses is disheartening and condemns their souls. Can they not see that one report of abuse is enough to investigate? Judas only offended once. Also the misuse of funds has not been properly addressed.

  • Prepare was written during Advent 2018.


    Prepare

    Say the word, if you'll be free
    Accept their blame, to be like Me
    With opened eyes, you shall see
    Lay bare your soul, on bended knee

    For but a price, I surrendered My life
    My peace exchanged, for all their strife
    My heart pierced deep, as if by knife
    Nailed upon a cross, their hate so rife

    But on your own, you cannot obtain
    A place within, the eternal domain
    So deeply strive, steady course maintain
    And from all vice, you must refrain

    Humbly enter, the worthy chase
    Abandon all, the filth and base
    Implore My grace, for your sins to erase
    Only then will you see, the Father's face

  • The poem Adam came out on December 9, 2018. Inspired by my puzzlement with Mark 14:51 since at least the late 1980's.


    Adam

    Arisen from dust, life into me thrust
    a copy to behold, from the best mold
    at first alone, now with one from my own
    destiny unknown, a garden our home
    avoid but one tree, or loose eternity
    deception has won, what have I done
    caught in a lie, my descendants will die
    but pity has shone, a new shoot has grown
    my error cost dear, the accusers draw near
    now naked I flee, to avoid death on a tree




    Mark 14:51
    A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.

    Could it be that the young man was indeed Adam, once again hurrying off to hide knowing that he was responsible for what was to happen to Jesus?

    A thoughtful poem! 

    I do not think that it could have been THE Adam, but this man was perhaps another of the disciples? Perhaps this very same disciple was named Adam, this adding a great layer of symbolism to this mystery.

  • Released before Christmas in 2018, Gimme Some Sugar, addresses a hidden problem.


    Gimme Some Sugar


    Gimme some sugar to soothe your soul
    Attend to my advice and attain your goal
    Rename your problem and do it with tact
    Surely believe in me, I will have your back

    Never mind the unseen, ignore their cries
    Pay no attention to the complainers' sighs
    You are free to do whatever you please
    And with my guidance it will be a breeze

    A person cannot be until one does it see
    So abandon all concern and listen to me
    If it feels good then do it you must
    I know all the rules, in me you can trust

    Change your nature to be like mine
    Follow my steps and you will do fine
    Try a new twist, it is certain to be sweet
    And do not worry if the wrong ends meet

    Remember our fun and good talk
    When hand in hand we will walk
    For when our companionship is done
    You can be sure that we will be one


    When I wrote this, I was thinking about how things are "rebranded" so to speak, to make them sound innocuous. Murder became abortion, gαy Related Immune Disease (GRID) became AIDS (Who is it aiding anyways?), calling a same sex union marriage (wrong ends meet), etc.

    Tonight (12-25-2018) while saying the Divine Mercy Chaplet, I finally got it. An inkling that I may have written
    about far more than I had realized. I converted to Catholicism in 1986, so I do not know the pre Vatican II
    church.

    So I was curious and decided to do some research.

    No longer does the priest face the tabernacle during Mass. He is now the center of attention. Our priests should be like the priests of the Old Testament, a representative standing for and before the people — between themselves and the Holy of Holies — praying for them and offering their sacrifice in a unique and
    consecrated way. Now the priest has been demoted to a liturgical salesman with his boss hiding in the back room. In addition the Mass responses have been mellowed, it is no longer mandatory to kneel and receive Jesus on the tongue and strange changes to church doctrine have since been enacted or proposed.

  • Released on January 2, 2019, Fairness came to be in response to what someone had said to me earlier that same day.



    Fairness


    With the same love as when I thought of you
    throughout your journey I will be there too
    My presence if not in body then in spirit best
    beloved you are, as precious as all the rest

    If you stumble and fall I will not forsake you
    within a world so harsh and difficult to view
    Have patience and love and in time you may see
    all that I have done, was meant to set you free

    My life I have surrendered to give life to you
    forgive all the wrongs, then forgive yours I do
    I provide for each one to the betterment of all
    in ways you must trust, with fair love do I call


    Fairness refers to our Heavenly Father and to earthly fathers as well.

    This poem reminds me of the song "No sugar/A new Mother Nature" - societal revolution and Nature turned on its/her head
    "There's a new Mother Nature taking over...she's getting us all"

    Qui non est alius
    Qui pugnet pro nobis

    "There's a new Mother Nature taking over...she's getting us all"
    I am familiar with No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature by the Guess Who.

    Gimme Some Sugar is not tied to music but I do have a secular poem that became so. And the name of the group that sung the song is amazingly close to the Guess Who.

    Pre-priced Package

    See that shiny package, on the upper row
    Its base cardboard shelf mate, is not the way to go
    There must be embossed letters, of metallic sheen
    And it must be shrink wrapped, so it's always clean
    Add a few more staples, and a cute twist tie
    You know it should be fancy, if I'm going to buy
    Prominent the brand name, in colors no less than eight
    The text it must be fancy, never print it straight
    Don't forget the bar code, or the warranty card
    Packed in lots of peanuts, in case if it gets jarred
    To deter the wayward, affix a radio tag
    Then place your corporate logo, on the check out bag
    Beware the competition, don't be such a slouch
    For reuse they have added, a see through zipper pouch
    Please sprinkle on some glitter, for a final touch
    And get a catchy jingle, to make me pay that much
    It's a pre-priced package, and we'll buy it in a snap
    It's a pre-priced package, and we'll keep coming back
    It's a pre-priced package, and we'll buy it in a snap
    It's a pre-priced package, and we'll keep coming back

    I was thinking about consumerism while writing. As I wrote I reviewed the first few lines quickly and the tune of Pinball Wizard by the Who popped into my head. Naturally, the rest of the poem had to follow suit.

  • The Wedding at Cana was penned on January 22, 2019.


    The Wedding at Cana


    A portent of events that had yet to unfold
    All followers invited is what we are told
    His mother's request He puts not on hold
    The ceremonial water its change we behold

    Filled to the brim with nothing held back
    Sweetened with goodness, nothing to lack
    The best for the last to consummate a pact
    His hour not here, there is no turning back

    Bridegroom, headwaiter and servers are there
    But of the bride, there is mention nowhere
    Or could that omission be to make us aware
    That the bride of Christ will soon be in our care

  • Holy Bond

    Spread on a table that man had not made
    Rained down from heaven now in the glade
    Heavenly flakes much whiter than frost
    Gather it quickly for in the heat it be lost

    Take what you need and store none away
    My directions abide that no one shall stray
    Sweet be the taste, different for each one
    The bread of the angels for now till I come

    One jar before Me for those yet to come
    A bountiful harvest do remember this one
    As a sign of My covenant place in the Ark
    Your hunger abated walk not in the dark

    When thousands sat down upon the grass
    I provided for their needs with this repast
    A handful of loaves before them I broke
    Leftovers there were, after I had spoke

    Share now this table fashioned by man
    Loaves you have broken because you can
    Changed into My body, not a mere sign
    A Holy Bond between your heart and Mine

    All of My people, I place before you a choice
    Pray that your reason has heeded My voice
    But beware of temptation clouding your view
    Accept now this morsel that I offer to you

  • Tomorrow

    Through swaying trees we gaze upon
    An evening crescent betwixt the sheaths
    New beginnings, of soon to be leafs
    Remembering our friend who has gone on

    We shall all follow the path to the end
    Routes that we take are different for each
    Along the way we have goodness to teach
    Until the day we join our dear friend

    Too small to comprehend the necessity
    We wonder now as upward we do stare
    The grace of God we pray you do share
    Immersed in His love for all eternity

    Tomorrow was penned on May 8, 2019. In a span of about three weeks four people who we knew in one way or another made a decision for God. One of them took a spouse unwillingly.
