Another Thanksgiving has passed. Mine was busy and filled with family. I find that I am not back home as much as I used to be.

I find going home to see my folks, and family now brings forth appreciation. Appreciating our short time together. Everything changes. Nieces growing up, nephew growing up. Sister becoming more successful in her life.

Observing my daughter listening to my parents stories. She loves them a lot. She loves going up and seeing her cousins and grandparents.

Growing up happens. Being away really allows appreciation to sink in. Not knowing when will see eachother. A lot can happen when your away. Such as your no longer concerned by gossip or who did what to who. Because your not coming up for awhile. In this case I will be back for a wedding soon.

I see my room I grew up in. Its smaller. I remember stories as I enter my parents house. That I have forgotten about, which I share with my daughter. I sound ridiculous to her. As her Dad. She can’t fathom that I was a kid with similar things she faces.

I love my folks. I love my sister. I love my nieces and nephew. I love my brother in law and his football stories. I miss my grandparents. I miss my grandpa complaining or talking about sports. I miss my grandma calling me “doll”, and telling me she loves me.

And yet life continues to go. Moving merrily along.


Sexual Harasment

Who are we as a country? We need to examine and have a healthy dialogue on power. What is power? What is our moral compass? What is our view on the feminine?

The days of controlling the feminine, dominating, crossing boundaries, taking advantage of the feminine are in our face. The shadow is showing us in politics and Hollywood and religion who we are now. We have to ask questions and understand how to heal this wound, a wound we act like isn’t there.

Our leader of this country had women come out and express how he took advantage of them. He was taped talking about what he can do being a star. No one questioned it. No one said anything. We have become a country that questions nothing and accepts everything as true.

We must question, question, question. We must teach our youth to question. We must teach our youth what real authentic power is. We must teach our youth to speak up and stand up against this sickness, this virus of sexual harassment. Time to get on our big boy and big girl pants and question people in power who belittle women, take advantage of them because they believe money is power. There is nothing wrong with money, and if you find your worth in it, then you feel worthless. If you hord money like scrooge you feel low worth, if you dominate another because of your position you are a bully and low worth.

We have cowards in leadership posing as lions. They are sheep. Scared.

We must question power now. Let us move into true power in which Jesus spoke about. Equality and justice for all in Gods love. Men and women are equal in God. If you don’t think so, sit and pray on it.

Stand up and speak. This is not about political parties or competition. This is about justice for all. We must question our president too on his moral compass and stop listening to his lies.

Self Love by Charlie Chaplin

Chaplin wrote this on his 70th birthday. Love this.

Charlie Chaplin – as I began to love myself

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!

Padre Pio Secret Prayer



When someone asks you to pray for them, why not pray with “Padre Pio Power”? When I heard that the prayer below (written by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque) was the one Padre Pio would use when people asked him to pray for them, I needed no further encouragement for choosing this prayer in the same way. Padre Pio has tens of thousands of miracles associated with him, including the healing of a very good friend of Pope John Paul II.

When you use this prayer, keep a journal to record these special intentions. Keep in mind this type of petition is for specific needs such as gainful employment, healing from an illness, etc. After some time has passed, refer back to this journal to record the amazing way God answers these prayers. Due to our limited view and God’s eternal view, it is important to always trust that He knows far better what is really needed in these situations. Be open to seeing how sometimes He answers our specific prayers in a way that does not always match exactly with what we asked. When looking back on these petitions, see how His way is better.

Padre Pio’s Sacred Heart Novena Prayer

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in My name, He will give it to you.” Behold, in Your name, I ask the Father for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but My words will not pass away.” Encouraged by Your infallible words I now ask for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of You, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your tender Mother and ours.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: “St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.”
