The Crucifix, A Powerful Form of Deliverance!

From the Desk of Father Mark, Your Catholic Sunday Homily Minute - Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

My Dear People,

The Crucifix, A Powerful Form of Deliverance!

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross is an annual reminder to all of the Catholic faithful that the Crucifix is a powerful form of exorcism and deliverance. The devil realizes that his time is short. Death did not overcome Jesus Christ, because the Father resurrected Him from the dead. When we gaze upon the Holy Cross, we see victory. The devil sees defeat. Many Catholics used to place a blessed cross in every room. This is a powerful form of deliverance from evil. Now, seldom do you find ANY blessed objects in a Catholic home.

Sacramentals are not magic. Our souls must be in a state of grace in order to benefit from them. When we combine Sunday Mass, frequent confession, and sacramentals to our weekly regiment, the devil then knows we mean business. Our life come from Our Lord. He desires to keep us safe from the enemy. Assist Our Lord in keeping our souls and our home safe form all harm and evil. Pray, pray, pray! Go to weekly mass and monthly confession. Show the enemy that your house and hearts belong to the Lord!

May we give generously of our time, talent and treasure, in everlasting love and gratitude for the total sacrifice Jesus gave for us on the CROSS.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
