Then, if you want to know more about what you read, or if you have an event to offer, email: email@example.com.
Please, do not focus on the waves of these storms. Stay focused on JESUS. Hold on to JESUS! (Be like the apostle holding on to Jesus in the image above! He understands where the real Power is and he will not let go!)
Remember the instructions to Joshua in Chapter 1 of the Book of Joshua and apply them to now:
6 Be strong and steadfast, so that you may give this people possession of the land I swore to their ancestors that I would give them.
7 Only be strong and steadfast, being careful to observe the entire law which Moses my servant enjoined on you. Do not swerve from it either to the right or to the left, that you may succeed wherever you go.
8 Do not let this book of the law depart from your lips. Recite it by day and by night, that you may carefully observe all that is written in it; then you will attain your goal; then you will succeed.
9 I command you: be strong and steadfast! Do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD, your God, is with you wherever you go.
Remember the simular instructions in Proverbs 4:
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead and your gaze be focused forward.
26 Survey the path for your feet, and all your ways will be sure.
27 Turn neither to right nor to left, keep your foot far from evil.
Remember what happened to St. Peter when he took his eye off of Jesus and looked at the storm waves as described in Matthew 14:
St. Peter Invited To Walk On The Water
27 At once [Jesus] spoke to them, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
28 Peter said to him in reply, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
29 He said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.
30 But when he saw how [strong] the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith,* why did you doubt?”
32 After they got into the boat, the wind died down.
33 Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying,
“Truly, you are the Son of God.”

Louisiana and its seven (7) Catholic Dioceses
To view Fr. Paul Bergeron's Mass of the Week as celebrated from Houma, LA each Sunday, please click on his image above.
This website fully embraces and is engaged with the NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC REVIVAL (being led by the USCCB). We are focused on making the Revival an joyous encounter with JESUS. It is this writer's opinion that this Revival is in preparation of the Warning that is on its way.
This revival is not unexpected in Louisiana. To read how Louisiana Catholics have been uniquely and actively praying and preparing, since May 17, 1998, for the Glorious Return of Jesus, visit the page on the legend titled, "Louisiana and the Sixth Glorious Mystery"! JESUS, "The Light" returns into the darkness of this world. Many Random Acts of Faith have been made in order to facilitate and usher forth what is now a full-blown Eucharistic Revival across the nation.
In a very real way, Jesus has never left us alone (nor has He abandoned us) because he has always been truly present, body, blood, soul and divinity in the Holy Eucharist.
Joshua 1:5 - No one can withstand you as long as you live. As I was with Moses, I will be with you: I will not leave you nor forsake you.
John 14:18 - I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
Hebrews 13:5 - Let your life be free from love of money but be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never forsake you or abandon you.
Since he departed into a cloud and is expected to return in a cloud, let us consider that The Holy Eucharist is a "New Testament Cloud" where His True Presence will be seen to those with the faith to see Him.
To read how Louisiana has responded over the years in time to that annointing to adore His True Presence in the Holy Eucharist, please scroll down and read and up to the page on the legend titled, "Louisiana and the Holy Eucharist".

A BRIEF INTRODUCTORY SUMMARY OF THE AREA WHERE WE ARE:
Houma-Thibodaux Diocese (green)
A unique portion of South Louisiana (Modern Delta) began to be built about 6,000 years ago when the now-named Mississippi River first-formed the Teche Delta Complex. The river flow then moved to the St. Bernard Delta Complex, then to the Lafourche Delta Complex, then to the Atchafalaya Delta Complex, then to the Plaquemine Delta Complex. Those changes in flow covered an area generally from Morganza, LA to westerly of Abbeville, LA to Pear River, LA. That area is mostly leveed and tries to contain the river and its flow.
There were specific times in history when that river ("The Great River") was also called "The River of the Holy Spirit" and then later "The River of the Immaculate Conception".) So, this land was created by the actions of a Great River named (at times) for the Holy Spirit and the Immaculate Conception is quite unique. That same land is symbolized today by the Mother Pelican feeding her chicks. That is a symbol of sacrifice and a symbol of the Holy Eucharist. The Holy Eucharist is Jesus'...Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity!
That "Great River" flowed unchecked for thousands of years. Then, in the late 1800's but most particularly after the flood of 1927, there was an attempt to control its flow by building man-made levees. Man cannot contain this wall of moving water! Any control will only be temporary! There will be a day come, and those levees will melt away. "IT WILL ONLY TAKE A RUMBLE" to cause that. For more on all that, please view this informative video by clicking here.
When the New Madrid fault again shakes the ground, as it did in the early 1800's that are described in that video, that "rumble" will instantly melt the current river levees that hold the water within the current river channel. The direct impact of the earthquake is expected to be minimal. But, the river levees between Memphis and St. Louisiana will essentually disappear, depending on the size, location and duration of the shaking. When will that happen next? Only God knows when. But, it could be at anytime.
To read how this "Great River" was recently used in 2001 and 2020 in "Random Acts of Faith" to bless America under the title of "Our Lady of America", please go to the legend above and click on the page titled:
"Louisiana - Holy Water Blessing"
The Houma-Thibodaux area of South Louisiana was formed mostly during the formation of the Lafourche ("the fork") Delta Complex about 2000 years ago. (That was during the time Jesus was born in the Holy Land.)
Extreme South Louisiana (the Modern Delta Complex) was formed by the southerly-moving waters from Minnesota and 30 other states. That water carried the best and most productive soil that was between the numerous mountain ranges in the eastern and the western portions of this country - as the mountain ranges weathered away.
As mentioned above, in addition to Minnesota (the initial source of the "Great River" in the Diocese of Crookston, MN), the land that has contributed to the Modern Delta reached northerly all the way into the States such as New York and Wyoming and up into Canada. Actually, Louisiana was created from the land of at least 31 U.S. States and a portion of Canada.
The Modern Delta is the most southerly portion of Louisiana. So in fact, although low and flat, in addition to being the best land from all those States, the Modern Delta Complex is composed of the age-old mountains that were worn down and leveled by the natures forces over time. So what is now low marshland was at one time a part of mountain ranges.
The land in this Modern Delta where the LOUISIANAWIM (Louisiana+Anawim) call home. That land has accumulated over time from nearly 40% of the land mass that we call the United States. (There is a certain "fullness" in that number and these facts.) There are pages on this website that more fully discuss that mystical phenomenon. They can be found by browsing the legend on the top left of this page. One could easily take the position that the Modern Delta Complex of Louisiana is the "heart of the "heart" of America. There is a unique Holy Spirit annointing with this being the "heart of the heart" of this country. That area of Louisiana is generally from Lafayette easterly to Baton Rouge and easterly to New Orleans then southerly to Houma-Thibodaux,
This website, and the information on it, is published to help us understand our purpose as an area and a people annointed to EVANGELIZE! It is published to be a tool to provide information to network all Catholics and other Christians on matters of mutual interest.

EVANGELIZATION MUST BE HOLY SPIRIT DRIVEN!
POPE PAUL VI HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT THAT:
"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."
