The Veil Removed – What The Mass Really Is

We go to Mass because we’re supposed to. We sit in the pews following along with the prayers and hearing the Scripture readings. We stand, sit, and kneel because it’s what we have always done and everybody else is doing it. Sometimes our minds wander through the every day cares of our lives and, when Mass is over, we go about those those lives as if nothing has happened.

We complain that we don’t get anything out of Mass. Maybe we are looking for the wrong things… 

We need to realize what the Mass really is…

The Veil Removed is a short film that reveals the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church.

24/7 Live Eucharistic Adoration Streams

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

24 Hour Adoration

Adoration Prayer Before The Blessed Sacrament

By Saint Maria Faustina

I adore You, Lord and Creator, hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I adore You for all the works of Your hands, that reveal to me so much wisdom, goodness and mercy, O Lord. You have spread so much beauty over the earth and it tells me about Your beauty, even though these beautiful things are but a faint reflection of You, incomprehensible Beauty. And although You have hidden Yourself and concealed Your beauty, my eye, enlightened by faith, reaches You and my soul recognizes its Creator, its Highest Good, and my heart is completely immersed in prayer of adoration.

My Lord and Creator, Your goodness encourages me to converse with You. Your mercy abolishes the chasm which separates the Creator from the creature. To converse with You, O Lord, is the delight of my heart. In You I find everything that my heart could desire. Here, Your light illumines my mind, enabling it to know You more and more deeply. Here streams of graces flow down upon my heart. Here my soul draws eternal life. O my Lord and Creator, You alone, beyond all these gifts, give Your own self to me and unite Yourself intimately with Your miserable creature.

O Christ, let my greatest delight be to see You loved and Your praise and glory proclaimed, especially the honor of Your mercy. O Christ, let me glorify Your goodness and mercy to the last moment of my life, with every drop of my blood and every beat of my heart. Would that I be transformed into a hymn of adoration of You. When I find myself on my deathbed, may the last beat of my heart be a loving hymn glorifying Your unfathomable mercy. Amen.


The Divine Praises

Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be His Most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
Blessed be St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
Blessed be God in His angels and in His Saints.

May the heart of Jesus, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time.


O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

How I Was Moved By A Miracle…

Earlier today, I was driving and listening to Take Two with Jerry and Debbie on EWTN radio. The topic for the day was “What was a time in your life when God really made His presence known to you?”. They were talking about an actual experience that you personally had where you KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt that He was right there with you. 

Now, I have had several experiences like that. I thought I would share one here…

1971: Somewhere in the South China Sea, off the coast of Vietnam…

I was stationed aboard the USS Loyalty, MSO-457 (MineSweeper, Ocean). Our mission was varied, however on this particular day, my mission, along with that of Max Henson,  was to remove a 750 pound compressor from the top of the ship’s water maker. The motor had failed, and the ship was mostly without a supply fresh water. A secondary system could produce about 75 gallons per hour – not much for a crew of about 70 men. 

We had just assumed the watch in the forward engine room, and picked up where the previous team had left off in the project. Block and tackle had been set up on the overhead, with the “hook” end over the top of the compressor end and the other 20 feet away over a space behind a generator. The entire space was tight, surrounded by switchboards (my responsibility), engines,  and generators (Max’s expertise). The walkway was about 2 1/2  feet wide. 

Max was at one end of the pulley, moving the compressor toward him, and I was situated between a twelve foot generator platform in front of me, the Internal Communications Switchboard directly behind me and the Main Ship’s Power Switchboard to my left. Pretty much boxed in.  I was also less than 3 feet directly under the compressor, guiding it along. 

That’s when the line snapped…

I stood there, paralyzed, watching 750 pounds of metal descending – in slow motion – upon my head! I couldn’t move – I could just stare. It didn’t seem to be falling – it was more like floating gently down toward me.

I blinked…

In a split second, during that blink, I heard the compressor smash the deck plates upon which I was standing, bounce up and smash the IC switchboard up against which I had been standing and come to rest, half way into the bilge below.

I opened my eyes after my blink…

It was at this point that everything came back to real time speed. And I realized that I wasn’t dead. Or injured. Or anywhere near the damage…

I hadn’t moved. Max hadn’t seen me move. One second I was trapped below a falling piece of equipment, and a nano-second later I was around two corners, standing almost against the opposite bulkhead, tucked safely around the far end of the massive main power switchboard. 

Max and I stared at each other in shocked silence…

After a period of silence, I said, “How did I get all the way over here?”

Max responded, “You didn’t. You didn’t move!”

“What do you mean?,” I asked.

“I was watching, and you didn’t move. One second you were about to be crushed and the next instant you were over where you are now! I can’t explain it!”

I think I CAN explain it…

My daughter became pregnant at 16… Abortion never entered her (or our) mind as an option. My grandson just turned 29… Love…❤️❤️❤️

Sadly, many others do not make the same courageous decision that my daughter made. Many, if not most, regret it. It haunts them. They cannot forgive themselves. But God can forgive them… 

If you are this person, let God forgive you. And learn to forgive yourself…

And then…

The stronger the temptation, the closer you are to final victory. Satan doesn’t bother much with those he already has in his grip and focuses his efforts on those upon whom he has no hold.

Temptation is not sin – giving in to it is. 

Offer your temptations up for the conversion of poor sinners. The devil hates that…

The Church, from the very Beginning…was Catholic!

So, what did the Church look like at the very beginning? And what does it look like today? No difference…

The Pint, The Pipe and The Cross

They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. ~ Acts 2:42

Many “Bible Alone” Christians will say that the Church of the Bible looks nothing like the Catholic Church. If that were true, then we would expect to find evidence of the first few hundred years of Christianity to support this claim. However, what we do find is evidence to show that the Early Church was indeed Catholic in every way! Many Protestants claim that the Church of the first three centuries was a “pure” Church and base that on a modern reading of Acts 2:42, ignoring that writings of the earliest Christians. They will also claim that it was only after the legalization of Christianity by Roman Emperor Constantine (313 AD) did the Church become “Catholic” and corrupt. However, the doctrines of Post-Constantine Catholicism are…
