The basic treetop premise of Jonathan Cahn’s book The Harbinger, is that America is following in the exact footprint of ancient Israel as prophesized in Isaiah 9:10. Just as the kingdom of ancient Israel grew and prospered as a direct consequence of God’s blessings and consecration, her destruction came as her people grew to reject God…replacing Godliness, morality and virtue with self-interest, vice and corruption.
I am in the middle of the book now, which I was inspired to…Continue

With his mouth, the Godless destroys his neighbor; but through knowledge, the righteous escape. ~ Proverbs 11.9
A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor; but a man of understanding holds his tongue. ~ Proverbs 11.12

It will be 36 years this July since I first met Richard Orlandi, Sr., Big Rich…or the Big O as we lovingly called him, after his son brought home a new grandson…and this stray from Texas. A couple of weeks ago I attended my first Tridentine Latin Mass in Ridgefield, Ct., since converting to the Catholic faith this past year. During the Mass, the priest gave an amazing sermon on the holiness of the family, connecting Joseph to the father, Mary to the mother and Jesus to each of…Continue
“”Lightworker” is a term coined years ago. It describes people, just like you and me, who are finally ‘done’ with eons of discord among people on the planet. These souls may be awakening slowly to this awareness, but it is gently leading them to choose to think in new and more compassionate ways, let go of old belief systems that just don’t ‘feel’ right or true and manage rather than express and perpetuate unloving reactions. They choose to quiet their minds so they can move into…Continue

…and then there were the Remnant; unseen among the gawkers and not heard among the squawkers…they owned a silent honor that bound them to each other. Strangers to Narcissus, they were drawn to disconnected circles where silence was symphonic and grace perfectly at home in the gleam of the eye and softness of the smile. Such power has no need of shiny things. Such power has no need to have. Period! Impervious quicksilver reaching only for the light…as in…Continue

I crawled into bed before the end wanting to be well under the covers and anesthetized by the mercy of sleep to escape the pain. I can tell you that this moment is the lowest and darkest moment of my entire life.
There are so many paths and variables from here…
My last tweet before surrendering to the oblivion of sleep was, Trust in God. So if indeed I meant that,…Continue

My Jewish friends are in the midst of celebrating their holiest days of the year. In fact, since my last writing they have observed Yom Kippur…the time of atonement and redemption ~
"G'mar Tov" (finish well) or "G'mar Chatima Tova" (may you be sealed in the book of life).
One of the blessed sacraments of the Catholic Faith is the holy sacrament of confession, which carries the same spirit and purpose of atonement and hopefully redemption. These are bedrock…Continue

Amazing things afoot my friends…and I’m not talking about the litany of precedent-setting events happening around us. I am talking about the view inside! It is hard for me to do justice (with words alone) to the amazing grace that simply exists here…patiently tapping its fingers waiting for us to notice.
What I will tell you is that until we do, we will live our lives chasing things that disappear once we catch them. We have put ourselves on one side of a river,…Continue

Every time I try to retire, or even think of retiring from acting, my agent comes up with a script. ~ Anthony Hopkins
He called it a “difficult week”…
It’s always interesting, intriguing, mystifying and sometimes breathtaking when we step back from our own obsessive impulse to fill space…and just allow. I was searching for a different Anthony Hopkins quote when I came across the one above. I loved it because it says so much. Is there a greater…Continue
“The Voice of God is in the gap between our thoughts. The purpose of meditation is to widen the gap.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Frustrated over my obsession with all things political, my best friend shoved a copy of How to Know God by Deepak Chopra in my face as if it were an antidote-like cure for all that was ailing me…and her.
Interestingly, the next day as I was on the elevator in my office building with a copy of it tucked under my arm…Continue
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
– Harriet Beecher Stowe, author
The quote above came to me on the same day that I learned of a troubled man who put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. I wondered if it would have made any difference if the quote had come to him…Continue

“We need more Christian leaders who will teach and preach the truths of God’s intention for our nation. I therefore wholeheartedly add my Hispanic voice to my black brother’s in saying, “Come out from among them!”” ~ The Re. Bill Banuchi Sr. of Newburgh, NY responding to Bishop Jackson’s call or a Christian “Exodus” from the Democrat Party
