daily - A ministry of Hope in
No matter what!
Peace and Greetings, dear sisters and brothers and all people of good will on this First Sunday of Lent!
Wishing you all times of meditations in this Lenten Season as we walk with Jesus toward his Suffering, dying and Resurrection. As we reflect on this Sunday's Gospel, we are faced with the threefold temptation of Jesus by Satan trying to keep him from his mission to bring the true Kingdom to us.
He says No to the temptation to become a magic power to create food at his pleasure, no He becomes the Bread of life.
He says no to the temptation of the evil doer who is twisting the Bible to his advantage to have Jesus perform magic. He will not give in to show at the Devil's behalf that he is safe over death...His death for our salvation will be the way towards Golgotha and the crucifixion!
He says No to the temptation of the Evil One to be the earthly ruler and adore the Devil who promised him the power and might over all created things and its splendor. Jesus is the Son of God, and his Kingdom is a different Kingdom than that of Satan. His Kingdom is about true Love, Peace, Mercy and Justice...
May we resist temptations with all our heart and soul when they come toward us in many different ways, either in hidden or in aggressive ways.
The soul rejoices when we resist temptations that will eventually destroy us, and God rejoices of every Sinner who comes back to Him and there is more joy in heaven.
With my prayers promised for you all in this Lenten Season
Blessings along the Journey

The Holy See of the ECCC
Some time ago our communion passed a resolution to require that all students who are in pursuit holy orders would need a bachelor’s degree of theology. This requirement was met with widespread approval and appreciation from our worldwide communion of the Ecumenical Catholic Church of Christ.
Our institution of choice has been our own St. Anthony’s Cathedral House of Liturgical Studies (SACHLS). Our institution offers training for all people who are pursuing Minor and Holy Orders, including aspirants, and those who are interested in growing and developing spiritually and academically in service to the communion and wider Christian circles. Therefore, I am urging all clergy members to participate in sending students to the school who need seminary training and who need courses to augment their formation and their training from parish leaders.
You will find attached a flyer from our institution, which can be printed and shared with all potential students and interested persons. If you have access to the Internet, you can also share the school’s website at www.stanthonysliturgicalhouse.org or enter into conversations with school officials at its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/stanthonyshouseofliturgicalstudies).
There are certification programs in the House of Studies and professional and academic degrees, ranging from the bachelor’s degree, including the Bachelor of Theology and Baccalaureate of Theology, to the Masters of Divinity and to a research degree known as the Doctor of Theology (Th. D.). Some of our student body are to be found throughout the world in the following countries: Haiti, Vanuatu, Kenya, and multiple states within the United States.
Looking forward that you can bring students, young and older to this great opportunity of studies!
Wishing all much success in their spiritual growth
Blessings in the Good Lord

Dear Neighbors and all Michiganders,
When it comes to healthcare for seniors and people with disabilities, Medicare can be complicated to navigate. In fact, we found that over 50% of individuals had trouble choosing the right plan during open enrollment.
As a Medicare resource center (Note: we do not sell or provide healthcare plans), we’ve made it our mission to tackle these difficulties. We want to ensure individuals are choosing a Medicare plan that meets their specific financial and medical needs.
Our newly updated resource on Medicare in Michigan covers the state’s available plan options.
