1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; KJV ~ Note that we cannot go through a saint, an angel, a human, an idol, or a relic ~ but ONLY through Christ Jesus in prayer to God. ~
I have always love this quote by my patron Saint, Teresa of Avila! It continues... "Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on the world, yours are the feet with which he goes about doing good, and yours are the hands with which he blesses the world." So beautiful!
The Blood Moon. There were two of these in 2014 and there will be two more in 2015. The idea of a "blood moon" serving as an omen of the coming of the end times comes from the Book of Joel, where it is written "the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes." This phrase is again mentioned by Saint Peter during Pentecost, as recorded in Acts.
