NOTICE: I am a practicing Catholic, active and in good-standing with my local parish, who professes faith and loyalty to the Church. This ministry - my "little work" - is strictly a personal expression of that faith and loyalty, and not an officially recognized ministry in the Diocese of Honolulu.

To the generous and dedicated Prayer Warriors out there, this post is especially directed to you. 'am humbly asking for your valued prayers for our Hawaiian islands. Hurricane Lane is headed for my small island state and has defied all prior forecasts - strengthening to a powerful Category 4 storm, rather than weakening; headed north-west, versus continuing south of the island chain. It may just make a direct hit to my home-island of Oahu.
I am a firm believer in the awesome power of Faith and Prayer, which, as Scriptures tell us, can move mountains and calm storms - nothing is impossible to God. So please kindly join me in offering the prayer below (or any other prayer) for the protection of Hawaii from Hurricane Lane. Thank you and God bless you.
Father, all the elements of nature obey your command. Calm the storms and hurricanes that threaten us and turn our fear of your power into praise of your goodness. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

It's the eve of one of the most significant feasts of the Catholic Church - the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary - and all day I was excited for two reasons. First, I was enthused about having the opportunity to again share my passion for Our Lady, her apparitions, and our Saints, via my speaking presentation that I call "Marian Apparitions, Saints, & Relics". Secondly, I was doing the presentation at the Sacred Heart Church in Waianae for that parish's RCIA Team and interested parishioners - some of my most favorite fellow Catholics!

I left the Sacred Heart parish grateful for the attentiveness and feedback from the participants, and hopeful that tonight's presentation will bear much positive spiritual fruit in the Waianae community.
Many thanks and praises be to God and to our most Holy Mother Mary!
