We pray that today maybe a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through the personal testimony of our special guest. Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. The Magnificat Proclaims podcasts feature Catholic women who have shared their testimony at one of the many Magnificat Chapters hosting quarterly meals held around the world. We trust that these testimonies will help us to come to better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness.

We are delighted to introduce you to our beloved Marilyn Quirk. While studying to become an Episcopal medical missionary in 1958, Marilyn converted to Catholicism.  Devoted to Our Lady and attentive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, she has been involved in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal since 1970.

Marilyn is the founding Coordinator of Magnificat, served I this capacity for 31 years, and is now Coordinator Emeritus of its Central Service Team.  Much like a spiritual mother to all of her Magnificat daughters, she is truly God’s gift sent to us for these exciting times in which we live. She was awarded the papal medal, Pro Ecclesia Et Pontifice, for outstanding service to the Catholic Church and has appeared on EWTN.

Striving to live a life of devoted service to God, her family and her church, she and her husband, Peter, are especially proud of their six children and thirteen grandchildren.  Members of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher and Legatus, Marilyn and Peter have served their church parish in New Orleans as extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist.

We hope you enjoy her story of conversion, call, and commitment!

Prayer of Faith – Part 14

Join Lucia as she talks about how to put your faith into operation through the prayer of faith.  Join Lucia as she talks about how to put your faith into operation through the prayer of faith.  There are different kinds of prayers we can pray: the prayer of praise and worship; the prayer of agreement where two or more people agree together; the prayer of binding and loosing; the prayer of intercession; and the prayer of petition or the prayer of faith.

The prayer of petition is the most common prayer, and this is where we ask Father God to do something for us or give us something.  There are laws that govern its operation, and if we don’t operate according to the laws that govern it, it won’t work for us.

Mark 11:24 is a great example of the prayer of faith.  The Good News Translation reads, “For this reason I tell you: When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for.”

This is one of the most important statements in the Bible and could be the solution to every challenge you may ever face.  Your faith is released through prayer and this verse is the key that unlocks doors to walk in victory.

Jesus says when you pray for your desires, believe that you receive them when you pray, and you will have them!

It doesn’t matter what your heart desire, the technique to get it manifested in your life is the same for whatever you desire.

Everything we receive from God we receive by our faith.  The technique or principle of faith is this: when you pray, believe that you receive them when you pray, and you will have them.   If you don’t believe you receive them when you pray, you are not going to receive anything!

Faith Builders for Victorious Living

Faith to Please God

Lucia continues her study of faith in this week’s podcast by sharing you must have faith to please God. Live the victorious life! #podcastLucia continues her study of faith in this week’s podcast by sharing you must have faith to please God.

She references Hebrews 11:6 in The Passion Translation which says, “And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him.”

And Hebrews 3:7-12 in the New Living Translation tells us it’s important to walk by faith. That is why the Holy Spirit says, “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness.  There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years.  So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me.  They refuse to do what I tell them.’  So in my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’  Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God.”

A key statement in this verse is “Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving.”  Paul is telling us that an unbelieving heart or a heart that is not full of faith is considered to be evil!!

If you want God’s Word to work for you, you must mix it with your faith.  The Word of God can be preached; people can hear the Word; and it will not profit or produce for them because they don’t mix their faith with the Word of God.

Walking in faith causes you to live the victorious life!

Perfecting Your Love Walk, Part 3 – Overcoming Offenses

In today’s podcast Lucia finishes her series on Perfecting Your Love Walk and discusses how to overcome offenses.In today’s podcast Lucia finishes her series on Perfecting Your Love Walk and discusses how to overcome offenses. Even though you’re walking in love, you’ll have countless opportunities to get offended every day. 

People who become offended are usually trapped as they go about their normal, daily routines, and suddenly find themselves pulled into an offensive situation that causes hurt and resentment that grows until the person being offended decides to strike back. 

Offenses will come, but you can overcome them and not let them rule your life.  The important thing to remember is that it’s not the trap itself that is the offender; it’s the trapper who sets the trap.

Whenever Satan brings a scheme to cause an offense, he’s setting you up for destruction.  The proper response to an offensive situation is to respond the same way Jesus did!  Rebuke the devil!  That does two things for you.  First, you’re exercising your authority, and this stops the devil from hurting you. Second, it helps you recognize that it’s the devil and not people who sets up an offensive trap for you.

Satan’s plan is specifically designed to fit your weaknesses because he’s after your testimony. He wants to immobilize you and distract you from your destiny.  It’s time to put on the full Armor of God, stop blaming someone else for what they did, and take responsibility for your own actions! 

You can totally change your life by operating out of God’s love; and you can overcome offenses by choosing to forgive so you can live the victorious life God created you to live!

Authority – Part 1

Do you realize as a born-again believer that God has given you power and authority to enforce Satan’s defeat in your life?  Listen to this!Do you realize as a born-again believer that God has given you power and authority to enforce Satan’s defeat in your life? Do you know what your God-given authority is? Why you have authority?  Why you need authority? Do you know how to use your authority?

Join Lucia as she answers these questions and explains the authority that belongs to you once you make Jesus Lord of your life. She will teach you that you have authority, or power, over Satan’s tactics against your life, and you can enforce his defeat in every area of your life!

God created you to reflect His image, and as the reflection of God, you have His creative power on the inside of you. When you speak God’s Word in faith, those words release creative power into your circumstances and situations.

God spoke the universe into existence with His words, and Holy Spirit made it come to pass. God has given you that same power to speak words to influence the outcome of your life and create your future. All the creative power you possess is released with your words. Words that bring life or words that bring death.

This message will be good news to you if you’ve never been told God has given you power and authority over Satan and his plans for your life. It will change your perspective on how you live your life, and how you pray once you realize your God-given authority, which will enable you to live the victorious life God created you to live.

God's Love For His PeopleGod’s Love for His People

Episode 1

God’s love for His people will astound and bless you — in the scriptures, He says, “Beloved let us love one another because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God is revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him. In this is love. Not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins. Beloved if God so loved us, we also must love one another. No one has ever seen God. Yet if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.” (1 Jn. 4: 7-12)

“… who remains in love remains in God and God in him.” (v. 16)

We are called into a  love relationship with God in Jesus Christ through the power and life of the Holy Spirit. We live a covenant relationship in Jesus Christ in the New Creation. Those committed to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ live in a relationship with him in the Father and the Holy Spirit.

We have been created for God

We have been created to naturally live this life of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and come to completion or perfection as a human being in the dynamic of this triune relationship of love. In the book of Revelation Jesus says “Behold I make all things new”! Jesus is the source of the New Creation

By love, we become a new creation, a new man or woman in Christ. Jesus invites us into the New Covenant of Love through our Baptism in water

(The story of Dianne) — listen to the podcast for more.

God’s love for His people is unending!

The only way we can grow in love is by the power of God’s love Therefore we are called into a relationship where we are willing to embrace a process and journey of changing. Sometimes change is easy sometimes it is hard, “unless a seed falls to the ground and dies it remains just a seed, but if it dies it bears much fruit.” (Jn. 12) The story of Jimmy Cohen – a little book entitled Love of God by Charles Colson,  in a chapter entitled “Whatever Happened to Son.”

If God is love and lives in us, we need to love others. The basic call of our vocation is love. A successful and meaningful life is a life of love: giving our life away, giving our love away, and giving our death away! Our transformation and growth in divine love and human love brings spiritual happiness and also human maturity.  (The story of Alex Bombara)

Love is a gift from God, both divine and human love, a fruitful life. A fruitful life lived in the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit brings forth in our transformation generosity and gratitude. In humility we need to be patient, learn to appreciate and accept ourselves as we are, and trust in God’s merciful love to achieve all He has planned for us.

The Last Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth – Part II

The Last Supper - The Mass as Heaven on Earth - Part 2God had a loving plan for us, to bring us back into communion with Him. He gave His Son for us, who, through obedience fulfilled His Father’s plan. The result of God’s Love and Jesus’ Obedience burst forth on the Cross, in the Holy Spirit. This Trinitarian relationship allows us to participate spiritually and physically, renewing this covenant, each day, every day, in the Holy Mass, the greatest act of worship the world has ever known!
 
I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” John 6:51
