WE PLEAD THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS ACROSS THIS NATION!
COME HOLY SPIRIT!
Techniques of evangelization are good, but even the most advanced ones could not replace the gentle action of the Spirit. The most perfect preparation of the evangelizer has no effect without the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit the most convincing dialectic has no power over the heart of man. Without Him the most highly developed schemas resting on a sociological or psychological basis are quickly seen to be quite valueless… It must be said that the Holy Spirit is the principal agent of evangelization: it is He who impels each individual to proclaim the Gospel, and it is He who in the depths of consciences causes the word of salvation to be accepted and understood. But it can equally be said that He is the goal of evangelization: He alone stirs up the new creation, the new humanity of which evangelization is to be the result, with that unity in variety which evangelization wishes to achieve within the Christian community. Through the Holy Spirit the Gospel penetrates to the heart of the world, for it is He who causes people to discern the signs of the times- signs willed by God- which evangelization reveals and puts to use within history.

Louisianawim across the State of Louisiana and the country are generationally called to evangelize wherever they are planted. Especially as a result of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 have so many Louisianawim been transplanted so quickly and to so many other areas. Those two storms, like large stones, "splashed" the Louisianawim throughout the nation. Those two storms placed the Louisianawim in many unexpected places and put Louisiana on the "center-stage" of the world for the times we are in...and that are to come. So, wherever you are across this country...keep in touch. To learn more about the Louisianawim click here! To learn more about how God formed the land of the Louisianawim clickhere!

THE SERPENT...THE DRAGON...GENERATIONS OF STRONGHOLDS BEING BROKEN BY
THE PRAYER AND FASTING OF SO MANY...BE A PART OF THAT!
IS THIS TOO RADICAL FOR YOU?
IF SO, CONSIDER THESE WORDS BY A TRUSTED MAN:
– Included as part of a Bicentennial (1976) talk given in the United States by the future St. John Paul II, then Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Krakow, Poland-
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.
“We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-too-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it. . . .How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time.”
STILL A LITTLE TOO RADICAL FOR YOU? HOPE NOT! THAT WOULD BE A MISTAKE WITH ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES FOR YOU AND OTHERS YOU LOVE AND INFLUENCE. LISTEN TO WHAT AN OUTSTANDING PREACHER AND TEACHER OF THE CHURCH SAYS ABOUT THE DEVIL AND THE REALITIES OF HIS WORKS.
