WHERE TWO HEARTS BEAT AS ONE

Posted on by Donna Sue

  The very moment she said “Yes”, Redemption had begun. The prophecies of old fulfilled, Where two hearts beat as one. The Spirit overshadowed her, Because she had believed. As heaven met with earth that day, The God-man was conceived God’s son, her son, became a man, Pure Rose of Sharon’s bud. So soon to […]

THANK YOU GOD FOR JESUS

Posted on by Donna Sue

  I truly now can say to you, as Christmas drifts away, This was an Advent to remember and a special Christmas day. Our families all had fasted and petitioned God for grace,  What  joy to see at Holy Mass the peace on each ones face! With four weeks of preparation and sacrifices made, We […]

PURGATORY AND ROADSIDE CROSSES

Posted on by Donna Sue

My Dad is gone, and Mom is gone. My siblings all are too.  There’s no one left to pray for me, that’s why I’m asking YOU! “Is Purgatory real?” you ask.  I can assure you this, The pain which I am feeling here you’re going to want to miss! One thing we have seen a […]

THAT LITTLE CATHOLIC BOX

Posted on by Donna Sue

Out to dinner with some girlfriends conversation turned quite deep, When one spoke up so boldly for an answer she did seek. Why do you go in early to this thing that you call Mass? Why wear that “thingy” on your head and do an hour fast? And what about that little box where you […]

O BLOOD OF JESUS

Posted on by Donna Sue

I knelt before the Eucharist, My head bowed deep in prayer. My thoughts turned toward His agony; Of pain so hard to bear. His crimson blood and salt filled tears, His tortured ragged breath, The sinful life I’d led for years, Played out before his death. O Blood of Jesus flowing down Upon the cross, […]

LENTEN ASHES

Posted on by Donna Sue

WHAT?! There’s purple on the altar? Oh no, what did I miss? I’m still celebrating Christmas; Enjoying all my gifts. So I open up my Missal, The index is quite clear. Two more Sundays ‘til Ash Wednesday; Already Lent is here! With forty days to change my life, Forty days to fast and pray, I’ll […]

COME LAY YOUR HEAD AGAINST MY HEART

Posted on by Donna Sue

  Come lay your head against my heart, I’ll bathe your soul with peace. It’s time you learn to trust me child, Let all your worries cease. My blood was spilt to save your soul, I washed away your sin. Now open up your heart to love, Allow your Savior in. “My yoke is sweet, […]

THE LITTLE CATHOLIC SHRINE

Posted on by Donna Sue

                                                                          THE   LITTLE CATHOLIC SHRINE I   sought shelter in the little shrine, inside from falling rain. Away from all my crosses and away from all my pain. October’s angry storm outside no way […]

TERESA STOOPS NO MORE

Posted on by Donna Sue

With withered face and folded hands, her knees worn hard from prayers, She walked the streets of India amidst the death like stares. Her sari draped bent body always searching for the poor, No longer seeks the needy as Teresa stoops no more. Born Agnes in Albania, becoming Indian by choice, She broke through the […]

A KING AMONG KINGS

Posted on by Donna Sue

Brought by three kings, Who followed a star; Three gifts for the baby They sought for so far. At the sight of the three, Mary, Joseph and Son, They knew they’d arrived, This babe was the one! At once they fell down; Deep in silence adored The child in his blankets; That infant; their Lord. […]
