Lefebvre's prophecy on Muslims



In 1990, Lefebvre was convicted in a French court and sentenced to pay a fine of 5,000 francs when he stated that, as a result of Muslim immigration into Europe, "it is your wives, your daughters, your children who will be kidnapped and dragged off to a certain kind of places as they exist in Casablanca".

“And he said: Amen I say to you, that no prophet is accepted in his own country.” Luke 4:24 (Douay-Rheims Bible)

St. Louis turn-out!!



FRIENDS

Time it limits.
Time is narrow.
Time is mans
Not part of God’s sparrow.

And like the sparrow
You honored with trust.
Took flight to a city
Brushing off the world’s dust.

You pilgrims, our friends
Joined us at the table,
The banquet was laid
For those who were able

To share in a moment
Of goodness supreme,
An avowal of Christ
All eternity’s dream…

While time’s mediocre
Evil tolerates –
Goodness supreme
Evil desecrates

And your sacrifice to step
Out of your time
Like the sparrow who trusts
You flew to sublime…

To share in our joy,
To feast and not thirst –
The last place most would go…
But the last shall be first!

First Profession



THE
WINE
SPRINGING
FORTH
VIRGINS

(Zach. 9, 17)

Mystic crucifixion
Religious vows, three,
Poverty, obedience
And chastity.

Poverty nails
Our hands to the cross,
Like His, seemingly useless,
Souls redeemed, Satan’s loss.

And to the cross
Obedience nails feet
Like His, transfixed
Countless sinners, confessed, greet.

Chastity pierces
Our heart with a lance
His lifeless heart opened
Self-restraint…souls advance.

Cheerfully, freely,
His Blood ruby, sacrifice!
“…wine springing forth virgins”
Pearls of great price!

Nun!



NAZARENE

“Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword” Matthew 10:34
“Can anything good come from Nazareth?” John 1:46

Magnified by His mix
Birthed Him for the crucifix
I … am Nazarene!

My soul, my mind
My womb blood-lined
I … am Nazarene!

My wounds, my mars
My scrapes, my scars
I … am Nazarene!

Most favored daughter
Drank death like water
I … am Nazarene!

The Tradition threat
Many sons we’ve beget
I … am Nazarene!

We stand at the cross
We’re used to blood loss
I … am Nazarene!

Greater love til the end
We will lay for our Friend
I … am Nazarene!

Many lives you demean
At, this, your war scene
I … am Nazarene!

But peace, though, not seen
His sword strikes with sheen
Contradiction His mean …
Nazarene!!

Communion in the hand?!!



DO
NOT
TOUCH

(meditation on hands of the Priest)

She who had
Washed His feet
With silver tears
At Jesus’ seat

“Do not touch Me”

She at the tomb
To Him did speak
Did not recognize
His glorious physique

“Do not touch Me”

He then said,
“Mary”, she turned…
“Rabboni”, she cried
Reaching, she yearned

“Do not touch Me”

“Whose sins you shall forgive
They are forgiven
Whose sins you shall retain
They are retained”

“This is My Body”

Appearing to His men
The chosen, in fear
“Now it’s complete”
From the Last Supper to here

“This is My Body”

“Put in thy finger”
“Put it into My Side”
“It is…Myself” you “ handle”
Glorified!

(Lk. 7: 36-50; Jn. 20: 11-23; Lk. 22: 19; 24: 39)

A Little Franciscan




“Religious orders are not formed for the purpose of gathering together perfect people, but those who have the courage to aim at perfection.” (St. Francis de Sales)


MY
LITTLE
FRANCISCAN

My little Franciscan
Of Christ the King
Come to the stable
Give everything.

Of Christ the King
At the foot of His cross
Pray and cling.

With the golden bell’s ring.

THE OFFICE




I SAY A
LITTLE
PRAYER
FOR YOU

I said a little
Prayer for you,
Today, at morning
Matins.

At breakfast said
An Ave too,
While eating food
That fattens.

At Lauds I prayed
To give you strength,
And then I had
A snack.

I'd pray for you
At any length
While ordering a
Big-Mac!

The sun is high,
It's 12-noon time,
For you the
Angels' Psalter.

I pray at Prime,
Though it's lunch time,
That God won't
Let you falter.

Again at three,
It's time for Terce,
Some food I'll need
Till Sext.

My clothes are tight
Oh, what is worse?
To dwell on
Diet text.

So down my supper,
On to None,
Dry mouth from prayer,
I thirst.

I drink a lot,
The Vespers done,
My tummy's 'bout
To burst!

But still for you,
At Compline sat,
I prayed,
More food I ate.

This praying, Father,
Makes me fat...
Now you pray
I lose weight!!!
