Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
We believe a state of sanctity is reached by attending masses on a daily basis and receiving the Lord’s Body and Blood. May we all be purified and sanctified through the most precious body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Special prayer for the Armenian Nation and the conflict we are facing with our enemies:
One night while I was sleeping, I thought I was seeing a dream, but in fact it was a vision. I saw this visitor who was wearing a brown monk’s vestment top to bottom, all covered, not even the face showing entering my son’s room. He went to his bed and I saw him bending over the bed to pick him up. As soon as I saw that I started yelling. “Don’t take my son please, don’t, I am begging you,” I kept pleading nonstop in my bed, but I couldn’t move because my body was like a block of cement heavy can’t move, but I was seeing what was happening in his room. However, I was crying and yelling at the top of my lungs, no one was hearing, no one was helping. Despite my husband sleeping next to me he felt nothing, heard nothing, and saw nothing. Finally, this monk stopped, he withdrew his hands back to his brown vestment, stood up and left the room. I felt RELIEVED like no words can explain. I tried to get up to run to my son, but instead I saw myself floating over my body, I had separated from my body and was floating over my body. I could not understand what was happening with me, my mind was busy thinking I must run to my son and bring him into my room.I saw my spiritual body rushing to my kid’s room. In between our rooms there is the hallway that becomes a square shaped area between the rooms and the stairs. As soon as I reached that square hallway area a light showed and a portal opened, a burning round light, shining, bright and so alive that I could not see the other side, which was my kid’s room. I had no other choice, but to go through that portal of light thinking I will get to my son’s room passing through. However, little did I know once I entered the portal, I exited into a plain pasture place where I felt it was not on earth. I was so scared and at the same time mesmerized as to where I was. From a far I saw a place and I ran to that place to ask for help. Once I approached that place, I saw it was like a big room with only 3 walls and the fourth was open to the pasture. It had no doors so I entered through the space that was open and saw a very huge King’s chair in the middle. It was all Gold with Golden Arm rests at the edge of the arms like Lion’s feast and very intimidating, above was written,The Judgment Seat of Jesus.So, I knew I was at the courthouse of Jesus. Then I saw around under the 2 walls right and left next to Jesus’ throne little chairs and people were sitting there, I was told in my spirit to go take a seat so I sat next to the Golden King’s Chair, which filled entire space like A Throne. Scared and confused, I waited to see what would happen. Suddenly, Jesus came from a door that was right behind the Kingly Throne that I did not see. He was wearing all white, entered and came sitting on the King’s Chair. He put His arms on the Arm rest and waited. I was so scared because He was not looking at anyone sitting in that room, but watching straight ahead unto the pasture, an open area that had No End. And there it was, I finally saw what He was waiting for. Satan and the fallen angels with him coming towards where we were. I saw the devil in a horse body, disgusting eyes with a human shaped head all red and twisted abnormal ram’s horns. He had 2 hands one was holding a torch of fire, while the other was a pitchfork. Unexplainable fear and terror seized me, I could not breath, as I was shivering, trembling in my seat. The devil comes and stands in front of the courtroom, as he could not enter so from outside, he looked at us and said “So who am I taking with me, who am I claiming, who is mine.” I started begging and pleading with Jesus,” Lord please, Lord please I am begging you, please don’t send me with them. Please Lord, have mercy on me please.”
Jesus got up from His seat, raised His right hand and pointed at the devil. “Go back now, I have no one to give to you, none here will come with you.” That was the second time I felt relieved like words cannot explain. In my spirit I started thanking Him, but was crying hysterically that He did not give up on me and showed me mercy. The devil was so angry he turned back with all his army, which looked exactly like him just different shapes, forms, and sizes all with horse bodies and human shaped huge heads having gigantic twisted horns, red faces, and disgusting eyes with torches in one hand and pitchforks in the other hand. They all turned around, took off and disappeared instantly. I was crying and watched Jesus, He then turned around and went back to where He came from without talking to anyone in the courtroom. And instantly in a blink of an eye, I was back into my room and saw myself entering my body which was laying in bed like a corpse. Instantly I felt a severe and a sharp pain in my heart, a very distinct, incredible pain that can not be explained. I knew then it was the pain that I had caused Jesus with my sins so I repented and thanked the Lord for having mercy on us and sparing both of our lives my son and I.All the riches of the world, which are flesh desires, will not alleviate one sin that we commit in this world by words, thoughts, deeds and omissions.

Prayers of St. Clare of Assisi to the Five Wounds of Our SaviorPrayer and Praise to the Right Hand:
I. To the Wound in the Right Hand
Praise be to Thee, O Jesus Christ, for the most sacred wound in Thy right hand.
By this adorable wound, and by Thy most sacred passion, pardon me all the sins I have committed against Thee in thought, word, and deed, and all negligence in Thy service, and all sensuality for which I have been to blame whether asleep or awake. Grant that I may be able to recall with devotion Thy most pitiful death and sacred wounds; grant me the grace to mortify my body, and so to offer a pledge of my gratitude to Thee, Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen. Our Father – Hail Mary
II. To the Wound in the Left Hand
Praise and glory be to Thee, O sweetest Jesus Christ, for the most sacred wound in Thy left hand.
By this adorable wound, have mercy on me, and deign to root out of my heart everything displeasing
to Thee. Give me the victory over Thy perverse enemies, so that with Thy grace I may be able to overcome them; and by the merits of Thy most pitiful death save me from all the dangers of my
present and future life; and then grant that I may share Thy glory in heaven, Who livest and
reignest for ever and ever. Amen. Our Father – Hail Mary
III. To the Wound in the Right Foot
Praise and glory be to Thee, O sweet Jesus Christ, for the most sacred wound in Thy right foot; and by that adorable wound grant me grace to do penance for my sins. And by Thy most pitiful death I
devoutly beg of Thee to keep me, Thy poor servant, united, night and day, to Thy holy will,
and to remove afar off every misfortune of body and soul. And when the day of wrath shall come, receive me into Thy mercy, and lead me to eternal happiness. Who livest and reignest
world without end. Amen. Our Father – Hail Mary
IV. To the Wound in the Left Foot
Praise and glory be to Thee, most merciful Jesus Christ, for the most sacred wound in Thy left foot;
and by this adorable wound grant me the grace of a full pardon, that with Thine aid I may deserve to escape the sentence of eternal reprobation. I pray Thee, moreover, by Thy most holy death, O my loving Redeemer, that I may be able before my death to receive the sacrament of Thy body and blood, after confession of my sins, and with perfect repentance and purity of body and mind. Grant that I may merit also to receive the holy anointing, for my eternal salvation, O Lord, Who liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen. Our Father – Hail Mary
V. To the Wound in the Sacred Side
Praise and glory be to Thee, most loving Jesus Christ, for the most sacred wound in Thy side,
and by that adorable wound, and by Thy infinite mercy, which Thou didst make known in the
opening of Thy breast to the soldier Longinus, and so to us all, I pray Thee, O most gentle Jesus, that having redeemed me by baptism from original sin, so now by Thy precious blood, which is offered and received throughout the world, deliver me from all evils, past, present, and to come. And by Thy most bitter death give me a lively faith, a firm hope, and a perfect charity, so that I may love Thee with all my heart, and all my soul, and all my strength; make me firm and steadfast in good works, and grant me perseverance in Thy service, so that I may be able to please Thee always. Amen. Our Father – Hail Mary
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy death and blood Thou hast redeemed the world.
Let us pray:
Almighty and everlasting God, Who by the five wounds of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, hast redeemed the human race, grant to Thy suppliants that we who daily venerate those wounds, may, by the shedding of His precious blood, be freed from sudden and everlasting death. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
