NETWORKING LOUISIANA CATHOLICS AND ALL CHRISTIANS TO WORK TOGETHER TO EVANGELIZE THE NATION AND THE WORLD

In these unprecedented times of crisis, please spend some time here browsing the webpages in the legend on the left.  As part of the Church Militant, the information on this site might be important for you to be aware of at these times

Please, do not focus on the storm waves to the left and to the right.  Stay focused on JESUS. (Be like the apostle holding on to Jesus!)

Remember the instruction 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.

Please 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:

     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.”

This is a personal website and has been for many years.  It is the product of a Catholic lay person based in the Houma-Thibodaux Diocese of South Louisiana.

Although this website is located in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, this website does not represent the diocese nor does the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux in any manner endorse its contents. Of course, the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux has its own website. If you want to see some of the diocesan resources that are available there to evangelize, click here.  

For a brief history of how the Spiritual Bulletin Board of Louisiana came to be, click on the page titled "History/..." in the legend on the top left of this page.

A SUMMARY:

Houma-Thibodaux Diocese (green)

A unique portion of South Louisiana (Modern Delta) began to be built about 6,000 years ago by the first-formed Teche Delta Complex by what we today call the Mississippi River.  The river 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.   This covers an area generally from Morganza, LA to westerly of Abbeville, LA to Pear River, LA.

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".) 

To read how the Great River was just used in a Random Act of Faith that began on January 6, 2020 to move 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 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 that carried the best and most productive soil that was between the numerous mountain ranges in the eastern and the western portions of this country.  The land that has contributed to the Modern Delta reached northerly all the way into the States such as New York and Minnesota and Wyoming and up into Canada.  Actually, Louisiana was formed 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 mountains that were worn down and leveled by the natural forces that worked upon them over time and transported that land here by the waters of the "Great River".  

The land in this Modern Delta we call home 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.)  There are pages on this website that more fully discuss that.  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.

This website and the information on it is published to first serve and network Louisiana Catholics and Christians from all across Louisiana as well as those Louisianians who have relocated across this nation.  It is published to be a tool to provide information to network all Catholics and other Christians on matters of mutual interest.  For a short history of this website and how it came to be, you can scroll down the legend at the top left of this page and then click on "History/...".

Most visitors to this website initially come to search for Catholic Random Acts of Faith, events, ministries, etc. that are located across the State. As mentioned earlier, many Catholic ministries across Louisiana are listed in the legend to the left.  (If your ministry is missing or a ministry you are aware of is missing, please send that information via our email address: macleanland@bellsouth.net.)

SPIRITUAL BULLETIN BOARD OF LOUISIANA

WE ARE HERE TO NETWORK LOUISIANA CATHOLICS AND ALL CHRISTIANS TO WORK TOGETHER TO EVANGELIZE THE NATION AND THE WORLD

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.[118] 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.

NOW WE GET DARKER

All above is very positive and meant to lift one up. But, there is a darker side of Louisiana that can tend to pull one down.  Many in Louisiana have been pulled down by a few.  If you want more about that, please scroll up to the legend on the left until you get to the webpage titled "Louisiana  - The Darker Side".
