Pope John Paul, Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have all been Advocates of the Eucharistic Experience including Benediction and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Adoration is a special time and place to talk to and listen to Jesus Christ

He is present in the Blessed Sacrament. The Sacred Host will be out on the Sanctuary Altar in a gold monstrance for an extended period of time. from a couple of hours like we have at St. St. Angelas and up to 24 hours in some churches.

There is a church in Rome where Adoration is perpetual, never ending as established by Pope Benedict. All three Popes placed emphasis on the Importance of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction by example and their use of Benediction in Religious services.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Eucharist is a special time to communicate with Jesus Christ

He is present in the Sacred Host in the Monstrance. It is an intimate source of joy to experience and share with your Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

I pray that more people will attend Adoration and discover for themselves a closer joyful relationship with our Lord and Savior , Jesus Christ. safe during the rain and storms

After the Gospel and homily parish members will state a special intention and Parishioners will say, "For This We Pray" My intention was, May more parishioners attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after this Mass and take the time to talk to Jesus.

Our Pastor Father Seamus Told me not to do pray for peope to come to Adoration

after the 8 oclock Mass. I should not be making an announcement as it is in the church bulletin. I said, Father It was an honest prayer and my special intention! Before He left for his vacation in Ireland Father Seamus stopped us from saying the Rosary at the start of Adoration and attendance fell off. It is important to note that the liturgical commission in the Vatican latest report recommended the Rosary be said during Adoration as it focused on Jesus's ` During Lent He stopped the Stations of the Cross substiuting his homily with food in the Parish downstairs dinning room. I wrote That the Stations of the Cross were like the ribs of the Ark Keeping us dry and safe during the 40 days of Lent surviving the storms of life's temptation by focusing on the suffering of Christ,dying for our sins. I went to the Stations of the Cross at San Carlos Cathedral and did a youtube for those church members who may not be able to attend because of health reasons but had a bond with the Catherdral. The Knight of Columnus did a wonderful sharing reverence for Christ Suffering and death. I found it more inspiring seeing the young and old participating in Saint Alphonsus De Liguori.Way of the Cross, seeing Christ Suffering and death for oiur sins throughMotherMary's Eyes waThere

On Aug 2, There was a soft mystical illumed face on the semi dark interior wall of the Tabernacle.This was the day after Ruben's and another Patient I was praying with experienced unique healings!

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

May all Catholics develop a deeper relationship with God during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament receiving special Grace and healing comfort. I Pray that more people will embrace the joy found in giving their time in singing praise at the start, communal prayer like the Rosary that has been recommeded by Vatican as an excellent prayer for the faithful during Adoration then silent worship and meditation Talking to Jesus Present in the Eucharist and listening to His reply that you will hear. He will answer your questions and guide you when you leave the church to follow His way of the Cross. of the Blessed Sacrament. May it be encouraged by the Pastor and the clergy and their Parish affiliates.

We would have more people attend Adoration if the Priest saying the 8 AM Mass would remind and invite the faithful to honor Christ with their presence at Adoration and Pray for Peace, Understanding and Healing in the world.

What are the dark reasons for the actions of Father Seamus O Brien The relatively new pastor of St. Angelas Merici in Pacific Grove.

I am a parishioner whom He asked me to stop praying at public intention time that we pray that more people would attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after Friday's 8 oclock Mass. More people did attend. He called it an announcement that should not be prayed for.

He stopped us from saying the rosary during adoration and attendence faltered. The current liturgical ruling from the Vatican stated it was an excellent prayer for use at Adoration.

He canceled out the Way of the Cross during Lent and replaced it with one of his sermons folowed by a celabratory dinner with the Parishioner. There is a passage in the bible that could explain that If Our pastor was Jesus Christ. That brings to mind I could not help but notice That when I saw Father Seamus with His sister and Brother-in-Law, his head and skull structure was considerably larger than the other two. I did a searh on line in phrenology, The study of skulls and that people with larger skulls could be brighter subject to a God Complex.

One day There were the unique initials J C on the Glass in the Monstrance. As a result I started doing a video just before the end of Adoration and recorded amazing prophetic imagery on the Monstrance and in the candles. They suggested event in the world . On a more personal plane I knew when Individual were ill in need of prayers. At other times when they would be crossing over to the other side, hopefuly to heaven. I had this strange gift of feeling when it was to be or actually happening. I have long been involved in caring for the ill in resthomes, residences and my own home . The messages I deciphered directed my work with others, my creative energy in my new songs, Prayers and visits to rest homes and the hospital. I bring my Art work to brighten their area, My Guitar, My Bible, Roses from the Arch above St.Francis Shrine in my Garden and Humor to Lift their spirits and brighten their day with my spiritual songs. There will be tender gentle times when I help prepare them to cross over to the other side, leaving the fear and pain behind, reaching up with Joy of Loving God and knowing they will soon be with their Lord and maker.

There will be those who will be healed when it is God's will and we will share the Joyful exultation with a Hug and Alleluia! A word that brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart, Alleluia! Thanks be to God! There is joy in being a servant of the Lord.

This is the Tabernacle in the Sanctuary at St. Angelas.


The Face on inner wall of Tabernacle August 2, 2013


Some one must have told the Powers to be as it had an effect on how Giselle opened the Tabernacle door to put the Sacred Host away on August 9, Hardly at all.


There was question in my mind, did the Ciboriam's cross on the top create image of the Christ Like face. I try to find natural causes of Images that have a spiritual connection. After many Fridays of careful observation of the interior of the Tabernacle and not seeing the face again I believe I was wrong in attributing it's cause to the Ciborium. Some images can be explained naturally but I seem to be led to finding them in the first place. I am like a spiritual scientist, using technology to share and reveal spiritual images that are there in reality but over looked. There are paranormal experiences that can not be explained. I have had a heightened awareness of the gift of discernment long before I knew it's name or accepted explanation.

Adoration can to increase devotion to Christ Presence in the the Blessed Sacrament which is the bedrock of Our Eucharistic beliefs. This Important Phase of Eucharistic Worship of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament is almost totally absent at St. Angelas. The emphasis is on the Eucharistic Minister approach and we do have a large number of them At times some will speak of other Eucharistic Ministers objectively as not being fully aware of how special the Sacred Host is that entrusted to them. That it really the Body and Blood of Christ Ressurrected. is Jesus.

Being an Eucharistic Minister should bring the bearer of Jesus Christ really close to God as it does the receiver of Jesus in Communion. It should a symbol in your heart not just an outward sign of one church step up in the appeance or illusion of being a Revernd Catholic in the Apostolic Christian tradition. Christ did not come to just preach to the Jews which was His Religion but to reach out to all.

Once again recent Popes apprecated Adoration. Pope John Paul,Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have all been Advocates the Eucharistic Experience including Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

An Inspiring Video of the Beauty of the Carmelite Monastery and Whalers cove At Point Lobos. where this meditaion was said at both places and the surprising positive effect it had.when I was doing reference photos for a special Prayer Painting in Progress "Dawn"

Prayer to start off this Hold Baby Jesus meditation and one to consider doing imediatelyafter receiving Holy Communion

Come into my heart O Lord, Make my heart Your home

May your Sacred Healing Blood ,mingle with my Own.

With every beat of my heart may your Holy Blood flow

Flow to every part of me, healing as it goes

Abide in me, O Lord and May I abide in Thee, with the Father Son and Holy Spirit, The Blessed Trinity.

Breathe in Jesus exhale Peace, Breathe in Jesus exhale love, Breathe in Jesus exhale Joy, Breathe in Jesus exhale, Heal me Lord if it be Thy Holy Will..

What you are doing is creating a positive healing protective space around you. The basic idea is to rid yourself of any thing in your mind that is negative then fill your space with healing positives you can relate to, and you will be replacing all the negatives space around you Gone is what caused you pain.

You will experience new joy of total immersion from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. God's healing Love is coursing through your entire body with the visualization of your lungs being filled with a new fresh breeze of healing, that your beating heart is pumping Jesus's Sacred Healing Blood to every part of you. Heal me Lord if it be thy will, May good Lord Help me live longer so that I can serve you and my fellow man in the way you direct me.

The first time I this meditation exercise was done was with a Lady, Sandy Haufman whom I was care giving in my home at the time. She would die later when she was no longer in my care from the cancer that was causing her pain at the time. Her vision of Mary allowing her to hold Baby Jesus led to it's creation when I added the deep breathing meditation to holding Baby Jesus. She was relieved from pain and started singing Joy to the world, and we then said the rosary together.

Tony A good friend of Mine In The Choir almost passed out and I did this exercise with him Breathing deeply with him Breathe in Jesus, exhale peace we did it a couple of time and he felt better we discussed variations of idea, that could be used..idea which he liked.

I had an optical migraine attack, also in the choir. They can be a bear to get rid of requiring asperins and lying down.This exercise ended it in less than a minute.

This is one meditation that I found the most joy in doing. You visualize holding Baby Jesus tenderly in your arms..

Spiritual Journey Update, entry July 16, 2013

Mass was special this Morning as it was the Feastday of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. We had a dedication to Our Lady of Fatima after an excellant Homiliy by a visting Priest who a friend in the same pew thought looked just like Pope Francis on the Carmelite Order and St. Thomas Stock who lingered for a couple of hundred years before Rome declared him a Saint. It was Politics as usual and we still have it today. That is the rift that is ongoing and destructive to the Church growth. In the past they cannonized legends quicker which they would repudiate later. than Saints like St. Thomas Stock.

In the Catholic Church Lustrous History, there was a time when Popes did Marry and their wive bore them children. They must have been really wonderful Holy offspring as they were in the express line for Sainthood. Perhaps that is why many think in this day and age think priests should be allowed to marry as they would do a great job as parents as Married Pastors of other Religions are to their perishoners as they are qualifyed by related experience to guide their parishoner who are parents themselves facing the challenges of contemporary society in this contemporary age.

I enjoyed it for another reason as today I was going to add The Carmelite Monastery into my Lone Cypress Prayer painting in the above video today. It has changed dramatically!

As usual we did Our Tuesday devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help and I led the Rosary afterwards. I suggested that one of our regulars, Joe from one of the Azore Island Fael lead the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery That was the language that Mary spoke at Fatima. Joe was shy and it took my urging last week to him lead the a decade of the Rosary in Portugese last and we all appreicated hearing it in another language. I love what happened next. It happened once before in a rest home when I gave one of my Cds to a lovely Lady who spoke to me about an experience with Mother Mary.I believe her. Dorothy held the cd to a Diane who was contemplating joining Our Legion of Mary Group. Dorothy said " Smell this. It smells like Roses. She held it out to me and it did smell like roses. I gave many cds to different patients that day but only one had the fragrance of Roses

Well it happened today again when Joe led the 4 th decade in Portugese. I have a cold and my olfactory senses are hardly working but there was a delightful light fragrance of Roses while Joe led the Rosary that waifed away to disappear when he stopped. I love the peace and joy that the fragrance of roses bring when least expected. It is happening to some of the very small roses that I bring to patients in rest homes as they never seemed to be so pungent before, In fact they hardly had any odor.

I have 3 different types of Roses in a floral Arch above St Francis statue in an out door little shrine in my back to nature back yard. few large Red roses have an unique beautiful strong fragrance while the small white and pink and tiny red ones seemed devoid of fragrance but that may be by comparison.

I once had a showcase garden with Flowers and Bulbs given to me by Gilbert Vahe, my closest friend in Europe.the head Gardener of Monet's Garden in Giverny, before my health problems. He would come out to watch me paint there at times and and often exclaimed " Treasurelie ! " in appreciation of my painting in progress. and also to make people aware I am back to my Painting and what I am painting! Some of my creative inspired prayer paintings that seem to be answered are more beautiful in more ways than one. At times they will be the ones that will attract the right person who should have it acquire it. It also happen unexpectively at time when I am in need myself. I have learned to part with special paintings from my own collection with joy in undestanding they are going to the right family and the sale helps me to continue my Spiritual Jouney.

We all have financial needs but God has gifted me with talents that I constantly cultivate and find The creative process is as joyful to me as Nirvana is to others that they find while meditating! It can be explined by the physical response of endorphins I experience great joy in the process of doing them for what I am doing in Creating Beautiful Paintings and communicating my Love of God through music and songs of praise is a calling that I answer in the service of Loving and serving God by reaching out to all with out exception with messages of God's Love and Forgiveness.

I discover great joy in Creating Paintings as visual prayers while writing new songs of praise while painting them. Some say if you sing songs of praise you pray twice, add the process of Painting while Singing Praises, You are multi tasking while Praying 3 0r more ways at the same time. You are Blest 3 times By the Father Son and Holy Spirit who is behind the gift of Faith that empowers your creations.

I will make positive efforts to paint my way out of financial problems that we created by me being more focused on my spiritual work.

I have no doubt that people have interfered with my sales.

My former wife feels it may just be poor telephone wiring that accounts for a large number of missed calls. I don't feel the wiring is the problem. The phone will ring and not have anyone there when I pick up the phone and the dial tone will come on after a slight wait. Bothersome ad call have no problems.

It is not inconceivable that people with intent upon denigrating my reputation once changed the settings on my home page so when you clicked on my telephone number be connected to a porn telephone site. I once did a reverse sting to check out who might try to denigrate me, so I used an approach to check out who might be behind an entrapment effort. The possible results was surprising and I chose not to mention it until now.

Reverse Sting using porn to see who was interfering with my internet connection, making it difficult to do computer work when connected and problems with my phone lines receiving calls. which are the same . homepagesale of my work

A number of Years ago after my wife devorced me I was out on a date with an attractive artist over 50 years of age who knew I did video work suggested we could make a lot of money doing videos of young naked preteens girls playing in a stream just fooling around splashing and playing with each other.She said "Wouldn't you like that George" I said No! I prefer older women like your self.I then told her if you did not meet me by chance, it is better you do not know me. She was in the hospital the next day with a heart attack. I thought I would get a reaction from the individuals who were creating problems by baiting them the way they tried but failed to entrap me. One evening I went to some youth porn sites anticipating a reaction that would reveal who was creating problems for me on the internet and possible phone call interuptions.line etc. sites that uneffectivly to bait me by going to a youth porn site in a reverse sting. They took it hook line and sinker

It was shocking to me when I found it out to be my church. A 30 plus year old daughter of a parishioner who looked younger then her age was striking poses like a disrespectful dumb teenager with her feet up on the pew seat in a manner and poses that should not be done in a church, all she needed was a lolly pop in her mouth. She was connected with a District Attorney's office in another larger Ca. city. Perhaps she did undercover work of that nature before.

With techno problem on line, my attitude is fix things if I can and let God take care of those who try to do me damage or interfere with my work that is God Inspired. Boy does he ever, sometimes he will warn them as thing will happen to their health or accidents will happen to them or their families. Some people will call it Karma but the Bible will does often speak of the Protection that God gives those who serve Him and the ill fortune that will befall on those who attempt to harm or denigrate them.

I do not wish harm on anyone. I feel that God has angels protecting me. I feel on occasion it will be people in need that I like and even love who may do things that are not supportive of my goals but I would rather have them profit by their efforts than some one I do not know. I do worry about what could happen to them and pray that they will not suffer ill because of what they do or are forced to do for some reason other then financial reward. I had written a section on my homepage Does God operate in Mysterious ways One person who purchased my recent sold paintings spoke of the difficulty reaching me by phone and E mail but they persisted as were meant to own the special paintings they purchased. They received great value And I feel good to know these special paintings are in the Home they were meant to be in, Enjoyed by People who will grow to love the works more every time they visually dive in the ocean I painted with Love.If ever you have a problem reaching me you can always use the Post office and send me a Letter to

I have another good reason to raise money for an operation on my foot that could make the trip to the Holy Land feasible and the current work on my spiritual journey here Less handicaped by pain and mobility problems. Even though I feel I am in the Holy Land when I am reading the New Testament and Praying the Rosary as the focus in both are on Christ experiences there and his wonderful teachings. Currently the Holy Land is not a sanctuary of Spiritual Peace. The Children of Abraham will have to put their differences aside and focus on the positive side of their specific beliefs to live in Peace together, not kill one another in defiance of God's Law of Peace and love.

I had a Jewish Man from Israel out at Lone Cypress once tell me He wished the Tea Party would not interfere with what is happening in Israel. That was surprise to me. Are end timers who want to bring about Armageddon by expanding Israel boundaries affiliated with the Tea Party?

I feel a calling to share my experiences and results as a Testimony to Faith, the Power of Prayer and Love, There are varieties of ways one can pray and communicate with God. Also to acknowledge the wonderful spiritual influence of others on their own unique spiritual journey.

I have cultivated a greater appreciation, respect and undestanding of all Religions through my travels through out the world and personal contact that could never be gained by study alone.

My Spiritual videos on Prayer and healing will reveal an approach of singing and writing my healing songs while painting in a combined free flow of inspired Prayer and Meditation. They are often inspired by my Caring Rest Home and Hospital Caring Vists to those who are ill and to others in the process of being called to joy found in being with God and old friends who departed before them.

I recall a personal experience while working on the Peace Painting I sent to the United Nations as a Visual Prayer for Peace. I thought I was having a TIA attack like mini strokes I have had in the past. There was a flood of a bright light and I had to sit down and I felt strange.

A Doctor from India, a heart specialist working in the USA and also a Hindu Meditation teacher commissioned me to do a painting to be use on ther cover of his Book.

He asked if could use my home for one of his classes when He came down to confer with me on the commissioned work of art. He felt the peaceful aura of my home with all the beautiful pantings created an excellent mood for his class. His students were all nurses at the local Community Hospital, CHOMP.

I enjoyed the class too as he explained that what happened to me was an Endorphin rush that those who practice meditation can achive through advaced meditation techniques.

I also had a better understanding why there are growing numbers of converts to Hinduism in the world. I learned more conversing with them at the Lone Cypress

They regard and more quickly accept their Holy Men as brighter lights closer to God. The number of the Holy men grow and so does the Hindu Religion.

I pray constantly that My Own Catholic Religion speed up the process of acknowledging Mother Mary many appearancess and her relevant Messages to Pray for Peace. I believe without doubt that Her visits are the work of God and she is Our Pure In Spirit, Messanger Dove bringing God's Message of Love.

Pray for Pope Francis's God's Love, Light and Truth efforts to bring Positive Holy Spirt Inspired Change in the Catholic Church

I appreciated his acknowleging Pope John Paul Views that Our Lady of Medjugore was a continuation of the appearances and messages of Our Lady of Fatima.

He shared with the Faithful how Our lady of Medjugore save the life of Pope John Paul, who was know as the Protector of Our Lady of Medjugore . She saved Pope John Pauls Life when A Catholic Priest connected with the Pope Pius group who were very political and did not accept Vatican 2 tried to kill him on the altar at Fatima while hew was praying a Thank You Mass that he survived the other attempt on his holy life in Rome.

Both John Paul and Pope Francis are the Catholic Faith Holy Men and If we follow Leadership. The Catholic Church will increase in numbers. Through Pope Francis emphasis on God's Love, Light and Truth, More People will be drawn into the fold of the Good Shepherd Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Many have left and others are leaving as God's Love Light and truth was dimmed by the face saving behavior of the Church Hierarchy.

The criticism and Penalizing those who spoke the truth about abuse and other misdeeds of the church as caustic as self appointed protector and enforcers of strict church laws that at times run contrary to the Teachings of Jesus Christ in the Gospels. , in the Good News of The New Testament. not a part of Dogma. They constamntly Judge other when they should be loving them.

They are modern day Pharasees and scribes of the same nature that Christ had problems with when on Earth. Their hard hearted ways lead many to leave the church. I will never leave the church but will Challenge Lay members who are more attuned to Mother Church Than God The Father. Jesus Christ Words and teachings that He spoke and shared while here on Earth though far more important and clear in understanding would be small and minute in comparison with the many volumes in Our Catechism. I have seen many who had a Catholic education from grammar school through College leave the church. A number of which were child hood friends who were intelligent and good people. Some are surprised that I remained a Catholic as I was abused as a Child by a Pastor who I rebuked at the age of 9 with some after effects. I have spoken out about abuses in the church well aware of what happens when you do that. Some of the misdirected of the church may feel I am attacking the church while they are they are protecting the churches reputation. That form of activty has been far more detrimental to the church than the foul deed themselves which continued unabated for too long because of the protectors of the churc h.

Who is protecting future victims that will come about as sure as day follow Night, if those who speak out are silenced or isolated .

When the churches enter politics and use religion and the sacraments as a political influences you can have things like a Contemporay Inquistion. Political differences bring the same ugly aganst and hatred into churches that Politicians have misused more of late to garner votes through fear, division and disunity. It takes away form the potential of thew cohesiveness of parishioners and the unity of purpose that Churches should have in Obeying Christ Commands of love which include loving your Neighbor as Jesus loves you. and the teachings of Jesus Christ.

May Pope Francis Help to bring it back with the help of Former Pope Benedict. May Pope Francis continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit in reaching out to all To Reach out too with Jesus's Message of Love found in the Bible especially in the Gospel of John who was close to and love by Jesus in a special way that Jesus entrusted the Care of his Holy Mother To John and John to the care of Mother Mary.

What follows is a video testimony to the results and experiences along the Journey that I call the Way of the Cross. In May and early June I did a series of videos as a Prayer for a Young Lady, Cassandra who needed a double Lung transplant. While doing them I came across 10 year old Sarah Murnaghan dire need also and included her in the process requesting Prayers from spiritual people I respect.

I have more info on My Bonding with Sarah as she reminded me of Susie and Carly Jay, two creative young Ladies who both received successful double Lung Transplant before when I was doing my Prayer paintings for them . You find their stories in the section in directory titled

Sychronicity! Unique Shadow of a Cross appeared on Susie's Successful Prayer Painting of Lone Cypress for Double Lung Transplant as was Carly's Prayer Painting.

You can hear in the background some of the new songs I am curently writing as I do my Prayer Paintings.

Our Lady of the sea Tee shirt Prayer Painting was difficult and you would hardly recognize the Lone Cypress Painting now from where it was during this video. It is grown more beautiful with positive light There are also stories relevant to doing this work when experiencing and pain that I am no strager to. I have learned to offer up my pain for those in more pain. I have long suggested that to patients in rest homes and practice what I ask of them.

May you please pray for Joanne Herzog, She was the lady I brought the Rose to at Community Hospital

When we were leaving the 2 other elderly ladies who are her advocates was talking to a Male nurse at the nurse station about her cousin wanted to have her body shipped to Wisconsin. He acted as if they were a little premature as he asked them, Do you know something That I do not know? There was not hint that she was going to be passing on, Though the elderly ladies advocates felt it was her time as she has suffered too long.

She had an infection that required we wear gowns and gloves when we went in and a nurse on duty showed them Pictures of the wounds that as they requested information that an advocate is entitiled to.

I met the two of them again this Saturday as they were leaving Carmel Hills visiting Joan. I spent an hour or 2 with them waiting to visit Joan at Communty Hospital.

It was like seeing old friends as we bonded together by our mutual affection for Joan while in the waiting room sharing stories of Joan's Caring Qualities. They encouraged me to visit her as Joan enjoyed my visits and they knew of my gentle approach to palative care.

They told that Joan has missed her last 2 dialysis treatments and they release her from the hospital to the resthome as she was dying.

It is not uncommon for Community Hospital to release dying Patients to rest homes. where they can be more at ease out of the hospital enviroment. It can ease the transition to the next. That practice also transfer the record of them dying from specific causes as in the case of infection to another location. There was a sute against Carmels Hills in the past involving a an elderly Lady in her 90ies with MRSA Staph, named Pearl, I remember singing spirituals to her when she was in a coma just before she died as I know they can hear. She developed bad bed sores and went to community for treatment. She was to return to Carmel Hills to die. At the time I had reason to wonder if Carmel Hills was not the place where Pearl picked up the Mersa Staph that was the primary cause of death in the suite against them.

As I was walking back to visit Joan I was aware of the potential dangers in doing so with her infection and I was concerned until I remembered something in the Bible or perhaps in a hymn about kissing the lepers clean. I Have been doing this long enough to pick up anti bodies that protect me from future infections and have a better immune system for my efforts. The number and kinds of diseases and infections I have been exposed to are serious and many.

I had a moment of sorrow and concern when here two elderly advocates informed me she was dying and the hospital discontinued her dialysis treatments. It seemed just a few days ago when the young Male nurse asked them if they knew something He did not when they spoke of making arrangements to have her body shipped to Wisconsin for burial. It seemed to be premature. THe isolation she was in suggested a highly communicable infection. The Hospital has had a problem with staph. I know from my own painful personal experience and with conversations with others who acquired staph there.

I have long been an advocate of copper tables in Hospials as it has helped to eliminated MERSA Staph in Hospitals that chose that approach. They put the welfare of their Patients foremost!

It really helps to have a knowledgable health adocates looking out for your welfare. Joan may have been in deep pain but she hid it well beneath a caring zest for life and her inner strength with other patients at Carmel Hills. All the patients loved Joan! There is a stronger network of Mutual Support Patients caring for each others at Carmel Hills than in most rest homes I was discussing that with a close friend Beverly, this morning who is a resident at Carmel Hills. I said you all are part of a one caring family here who really love and do honestly care about each other and even make visitors feel a part of your family. She knowingly agreed with a smile. There was sadness at Carmel Hill today for Joan who was loved by all crossed over to the other side at 5:04 AM. Soon as I entered the facility, a lovely lady in a wheel chair, who I did not know motioned to me to come over and asked are you here to visit joan again and informed me of Joan's passing. She was aware of my visit the day before. She was close to Joan and even knew her when they both lived in Lompoc. I aked her if she knew of Joan's spiritual preferenc

The Staff at Carmel Hills had allowed me in to visit Joan after putting on a protective gown and gloves as Joan had an infection that was highly contageous and they were taking ever precaution that it would not be spread through their communit There was a tape attached to joan with what looked like the letters stap. and suggested I not stay long which is the norm when one is terminal. THe Staff and attendents at Carmel Hill are good examples of Good People who really care about the Patients in their care. It is not just about putting in the hours for a paycheck, they are dedicated to their work and the patients.

I softly sang My Ave Maria Song and Touched by an Angel that I do for those who may be departing. I have bid a number of terminal Carmel Hills patients Bon Voyage in this manner.I Made the sign of the Cross on Her forehead, not being well enough to return it, she gave me a thank you George smiled and said Hasta La Vista with her eyes as she knew it was time for me to reluctantly go. The next visit she was in a peaceful dream world and did not open her eyes.

I returned Sunday to visit Joan after Mass with a fresh rose from my garden, one of 3 roses that I took into one of my favorite areas, the sanctuary where I lead the the Rosary daily in front of the Tabernacle and asked God to Bless the Roses and also Bless 3 special friends who would receive them, Joan , Beverly. and Eileen B. at Winsor House.

One of the caring attendents told me Joan should really have some one visit to pray or a priest to give her last rites as the caring attendent has observed Joan at Catholic and Christian Religious services at Carmel Hills. I told her I was here to bring prayers along with the Rose and I would try to have a priest bring the last Sacrament. I sang My spirituals to her and said a variety of Prayers, some old some new for her. When I left her room I tried to make arrangements for the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, Catholic last rites. I spoke to the staff and Mrs Woos who was in charge said only her advocates can have it done. She was kind enough to call the elderly advocates and her first effort failed and she tried the second number, the second effort may have reached the older of the two, who I believe may not have been Catholic as personal Choice of Religion, one was Catholic and one was of a different denomination, came up in our conversation while waiting at chomp for close to 2 Hours to Visit Joan as she was going through a Medical Procedure .and she said No. She was quite old and had her own health problems and pain that come with aging I remember Saturday chatting with her before the two of them left about the discoloration, black and Blue marks on her hands. If you have a friend who is is a Priest Have him Bless Her from where ever he is as a special spiritual Extreme Unction Prayer.

Joan had a very beautiful peaceful look on her face.

I took these Photos to attach them to My Painting Of Mother Mary.So I will facus on her while continuing my Prayer Thank You God Painting of the Lone Cypress.


Joan Touched by an Angel


Do pray with her special friends for this 71 year old beautiful Lady who was so caring of the other patients at Carmel Hills. She has a quiet gentle caring strength about her.


Joan, The Peace of the Lord Is with You.


When I returned the next day to Pray with Joan, One of her many close friends that I did not meet until then beckoned me to her wheel chair to informed me Joan has Passed away at 5:04 this Monday Morning. Their Frienship went back a long way , all the way to when Joan lived in Lompac. I asked her if she knew Joan's religon. She informed me she was possibly a Luthern early in her life, but for sure was a Christian. She had been attending various Christian Religious services. People who are growing closer to Heaven's Gate entry time have a hunger for the word of God and will attend religious services oif different denomination nas THe message that they receive have the commonality of Christ Teachings and Love which was evident in Joan's caring Christian attitude that we are all God's children and should love and care for each other.

Holy Land Trip Fund Raiser Sale is Back On.

So once again you can save a lot on Quality Fine Artwork. I am intent on raising money for an operation out side the VA medical program. on my foot to correct a dislocated bone in the Metarsal Area that has created a great amount of increasing pain and discomfort and imobility.

The problem is an old one that the VA has ignored. I have nothing but good things to say about the other area of VA Care but the Quality of Podiatry and wound care of my right leg raised many questions. I have documented my treatment with photos.

I had addressed some of these question about treatment and lack of it. My treatment was fraught with errors from the older staff. A point in reference, wrong prescription for a serious heel infection that only one drug was recommended for treatment of an infection that has killed more CF patients than any other infection. or if it did not work you would have to have intraveneous antibiotics administered through your heart. feed into your heart. It seemed unique as I have worked with CF Patients who develop have immune problems with antibiotics.

When I first asked the podiatrist at Monterey what the problem was after the first Squab result , She casually answered oh just something you pick up in damp areas. I requested that my primary care Giver Dr. Mudge send me out of the area for treatment after the antibiotics they addressed the problem with at Monterey Clinic did not work!.

At San Jose a young Doctor from Stanford addressed the problem correctly with an up todate intelligent approach.He said He said with surity " There is only one antibiotic that will work with that specif infection that has killed more people than any other infection who had CF than any other infection and if it did not work I would require intravevous drugs administerted through my heart. He further explained that you have a small hole on the outside and a large cavity on the inside close to the Bone. He had an MRI done to see if the infection entered the bone., thank Goodness it did not.It could have led to the loss of my lower right leg.

His prescription seemed to be working but . Efforts to check on efficiency of the antibiotic was seriously at fault . They stopped using a squab to enter the hole where the infection more than likely entered and were cutting biopsey in healthy tissue. When I exclaimed that I had a deep infection and they were cutting into the wrong area they said they were cutting in deep.( but the wrong area.)

It appeared likely I picked uip the infection when I climbed down backward a steep incline to visit with a seriously depressed son of one of our church members. I slid out of my loose shoes and the hillside was damp and only God know what was on the ground in the area where her son was living in the woods. At the time I felt like a bare foot monk with socks on. The stress on my heel was pronounced in the climb down, I did not change my socks until I took them off in the evening..

Later when they ignored the drastic pain in the front part of my foot and all they wanted to do was cut away tissue on my callous on my heel . I said No More Cutting that was crippling me. requiring for years that I wear a cloth boot with out a heel that was to lead to a problem with hammer toes because of improper distribution of weight for years as a result of there questionable heel cutting. There were 2 Young Doctors in trainings from Stanford who were ready to use the cotton squab to check and see if the serious infection was clearwd up completely. They were not allowed to by the Person in Charge to do so and were told not to put any antibiotic on the heel dressing as they normally do..I am sure the VA Medical Program did not appreciate my facebook lampooning of the lady in charge that day.

Quite afew month Later I would take the initiative to go to the VA Palo Alto Hospital emergency as the pain was growing more intense. In talking to the Doctor who read the X Rays asked me if I had broken and bones awhile back as I had a dislocated bone that was causing the level 9 and 10 pain that was increasing daily. I did recall I was in terrible pain and could hardly stand the Van or Bus ride to San Jose and Palo Alto. When he told me, I had a dislocated Bone that was causing me the pain, I had him write it down in his own handwriting as there was no mention of it in the typed report. Just Hammer toes , They kept me at hospital for quite awhile and I thought they were going to do something about it then . But That did not happen and they said I would have to have my Podiatrist at Montery order the work.

I now feel like I will retuirn to the Holy Land after I have corrective surgury on my foot and so I am going to set out to earn the cost of an operation. ,God willing I will have oneor moreof my sons with me, if not Perhaps God will provide another companion to do the journey. willing we will return to the Holy Land to Visit Israel. Two of my sons and I had difficulty crossing over from Jordan with all our gear on our 1997 painting trip around the world. I will work creatively and pray for Peace, Love and Harmony in in the world where ever I am. If it were to be God's will that I would lose my Home I wanted to spend my time here in it doing what I love doing, Praying creatively by painting and composing.

May we all do the same, each in our own way, reaching out how and when we can to serve others in their need. May you be, moved by the Spirit. Share God's Love and Forgivness.

I have been far more involved in my spiritual well being than my own economic wellbeing. My time is directed to serving God by praying and by serving my fellow man, especially the ill and infirmed in rest homes and the homeless where I appear to be gifted at sharing God's Love and Forgiveness with them.

I use my creativity in art and Music to share God's Love, Truth and Light. I am here to share the joy you find in Loving the Lord and lead others to share that joy.

God always seemed to send me someone, a surprize out of the blue to purchase my works of Fine Art when I was in dire need of sales. I do love God and Trust in His Son but feel, God wants people to try to help themself, so they can do what they can to work and earn their way through the world in an honest manner that would please Him and enable them to help others.

God also directs my energies to lift my self up by hard work. George ! Inspire others by your example of never giving up and by your hard work ethics.

I had a large dramatic & beautiuful 30 by 48 Seascape that I kept for 36 years. It was a Thanksgiving to God for finally becoming a Father. I had my new born son in a front Papoose carrier close to my heart while Painting the Painting.


Thank You God for A Son Thankgiving Painting

Relatives on My Father's Jewish side of the family who enjoyed the experience owning my work wanted to add to their collection and also help me financially in my moment of need. They also appreciate Art as The dad is an Artist and Teacher, The Son, Artist Painter Contempory scuptor etc. The Grandfather did Religious sculptures in the Jewish Tradition. The Wife and Daughter are also teachers with the daughter working in an impoverished areas where she can serve her fellowman by encouraging her student to work to realize the dreams that she may open up their minds to contemplate and acquire a can do attitude to achieve them..

My Father side the family are very creative and some very Religious.

There are Rabbis, A Female Espiscopal Pastor, I do recall another woman member of Our family being a Pastor of a Non Denominational Church. Rabbi Dove Bleich had a confrontation with one of the Popes that may have had to do with Religious Intolerance that was present at the time. Vatican 2 answered those problems but There is a on going conflict in The Catholic Church today with those priest who are opposed to the positive changes of Vatican 2 in the Catholic Church that are more attuned to the teachings of Christ found in the Bible in The words He Spoke and His Commands of Love. One of my many Nicknames in Grammar school use to be Dove and I have strong feeling of a realtionship with the Holy Spirit. It would not surprise me if we may somehow our lineage goes back to the House of David. A numbers of us Play musical Instruments Which If I am an example. we use them to sing and write a New Song unto the Lord. We are a creative family of Artists,Teachers, Sculptors , Screen and Telivision Writers,Composers, Directors and other creative work in the Film and Entertaiment industry. I have Sculpture of A Jewish Prophet that was created by the Father the Man in The family who are purchasing about a Painting Their daughter loved but could not afford. about a Beautiful Large Seascape that was in my collection for over 36 years. It was a thanksgiving Happy Painting Thatfor I was finally a Father Major work had a person who wanted to help me prevent forclosure ask if her daughter could purchase a larger But not one of the Big Four painting on time that the Daughter loved . Interest free payments were available. The Parents are helping the daughter purchase the work My Sucessful Screen Writer, Cousin William Bleich and now Arist Writer in Residence College Professor wrote a libretto that was performed by some Symphony Orchestra The Mother really wanted the work for her daughter who loved it but it was out of her financial reach and asked about time Payments. I thought that it was proper to extend them the price structure I had on My Holy Land fundraiser and was really happy to have it stay in the family. They acquired a very special work that The parents will keep in their home and the daughter will enjoy her painting when she visits the Parents and will have it later. Number of Parents have done the same thing

With the Majority of my work, You are always free to discuss prices with me and we can see if is a meeting of agreeable minds. You can purchase my work on time.

Synchronicity, A priority vibe pulled me back to painting, working intensly in spite of my physical pain on a dynamic Lone Cypress Prayer Painting while composing a song as a prayer offering to go with it. I felt a special friend was very ill in dire need need of healing prayers, but I was not sure which one as I reach out to many who aret ill. The prayer song was about a young 13 year old Australian girl with Cystic Fibrosis who had this calling to Visit the Lone Cypress Tree. She is now in her Thirties and was the first of many I shared Lourdes Water with.

I did not know she was in the Hospital with a serious Chest Infection for the last few weeks while I was working on the Painting and song. I was experiencing connective vibes with her. Any infection can be fatal with C F. She is doing better now as the Mother informed me she was coming home last week. Thank You Lord!

Painting was for other's healings too. Under my signature on The Lone Cypress Painting you will find a heart with a cross like on my Guitar and the word Peace.

Synchronicity guides my actions and directions of my creative energy. It is being in a spiritual zone

A video using the Painting' Our Lady Star of the Sea and the Healing Potential Of Jesus's Heart of Divine Mercy for the well being of People with various needs of Healing

It was inspired by a call from a man who collected my work who had an impulse after 20 year to lookup my home page. It was not by chance. He found in My spiritual journal 2 true stories of 2 prayer paintings of the Lone Cypress that were answered when both Young ladies received new Lungs. One over 15 years now with out rejection. His Young Daughter-in -law is in the same position as one of the ladies who was being taken off the transplant list for reasons of deteriorating health. We had a common interest in the devotion to Heart of Divine Mercy. He had participated in a miracle using the Chaplet of the Heart of Divine Mercy. I used it creatively in a slightly different way.

A series of Videos all interconnected as a Prayer offering For Cassandra and Others Using Our Lady Star of the Sea as a Center piece. They will include a Positive Deep Breathing Meditation that has had positive results, Holding Baby Jesus and other Prayers and songs written for healing the Soul then the Body when it is God's Will. They were once one long video I was preparing for Cassandra to set a Healing Mood for her.

This is the first part of a prayer that bring me a sense of Faith , Hope and Charity, a gentle sense of God's compassion and healing.

I have the longer recording on my homepage in it's entirety as the prayers are repeated 10 times. I Play it constantly as I hve a cd player by my bed, the first thing in the morning, the last thing at night and when I awaken during the night reducing the volume to a murmur. I will play it during the day while working and painting. On ocassion when I am doing work that is not easy or pleasant but was a result of being Kind to others and animals.

`

This video has insight to How wonderful Cassandra and Tony are and insight to what I do as prayer forms. There have been unique examples of Healing Prayer being Heard and miraculous happenings

Back To Prayer Painting and Singing. I added new Faces of young friends and the song I am writing, "Our Lady, Star of the Sea, Her Holy Son's Heart of Divine Mercy" in two you tube videos. Took The Set up of Candles, Statue of Jesus, etc. down the next day. Now comes the Prayers.I have enlisted the Prayer aid of People in my church and friends in rest homes who are close to God to pray for those whose pictures are attached on my painting and others who are in need of healing prayers. May you join them and add others in need that we all will pray for.

Going back to 1968 when I returned to Carmel after first visiting Carmel in 1962, One of my closeat friends was Eric Barker Poet Laureate of the the Big Sur and California. He always described me as his mystic friend. 50 years later I have a better understanding of what he meant by his perception.

"Carly's Special Friend, The Lone Cypress, A Prayer Painting"
24 x 30 -- Artist's Collection

This painting was offered up as prayer when I was informed by Carly, young lady with Cystic Fibrosis from Australia that she was being taken off the transplant list as she was not healthy enough for a lifesaving double lung transplant that she was waiting for close to a year. As a prayer offering, For a period of three weeks I repainted the changing times of day taking it to morning light for a few days, then the next couple days through afternoon, Then to sundown There is almost an elephant skin texture from the many layers of paint. This process was repeated over and over again till I heard the welcome news that Carly had a successful double lung transplant. Click here to read her poetry. Click on the thumbnail painting above to see a larger image.

Shortly after I loaned this painting to a Christian couple. Emily came into my gallery and asked if I had a painting of the Last Supper of Christ. She said Her husband was out in the car resting Her husband was very ill with cancer. The doctor told them not even to bother with Chemo as the cancer was too invasive. I told Emily to come back tomorrow and I would prepare one of my Lourdes water bottles for Peter.I prepared my Lourdes Water bottle for Peter with one of my seascape painting on it. I sang my Evergreen Tree song for them and and Peter's complexion changed from ash gray to more color. Peter wanted to buy one of my mini prints called Heaven's Gate I said Peter I want you to have it as a gift as I knew he was not working. I told him the story about my Moongate prayer painting and how I believed it help this young lady who was too ill to have a necessary double lung transplant or she would die. I worked on the painting as a prayer offering for her for about three weeks and I received a call from Australia telling me her health has changed for the better and she was able to have the transplant. I told them she was doing well and was coming to visit me from Australia later that year, and I wanted her to see the painting she inspired me to do. I told Peter and Emily Carly would not becoming to America foir another 6 months so I wanted them to enjoy the positive energy in the work. I think of my work as holistic impressionism, that in the the same way that nature when coupled with belief can have an uplifting effect on individuals. Peter and Emily Gonzales never returned the painting as promised and I thought that perhaps Peter has passed away.

A couple of years later I came across Their address and telephone number late at night. I was going to call them the next morning to find out how Peter was. Emily called me that morning out of the blue , It was almosat like mental telepathy! She said Peter was well and he wanted to come with her when they brought the painting back as he wanted to visit with me. I suggested that perhaps they could ship it up. She said they would. After a period of time went by , I called Emily and she said I had the wrong number. I do believe that it was her as I knew I had the right number.

In spring of 2013 , I had a new friend I was reaching out to help visit my home. She also helped me by enlightened me with her knowledge of Shamanic Healing that she studied for years. She informed me, I was doing healing forms, naturally with out training that she was trained to do and there were cases of healings of people with out treatment as when I Put Lisa Face in a heart shape in Image of Heart of Divine Mercy and wrote Sister Lisa Has Jesus In her heart and Jesus has Sister in His Heart on the cd of healing songs I prepared for her. When I would use candles and other objects of art in my videos I reached out to help that I used specific creativity in the process that shamans will do. It may have had more of a profound effect than I gave it or myself credit for other than being a facilitator. I believe God does the healing when it is his will. I do pray for and with people and my art and music will often be offered up as a prayer. I reach out to people of all Colors, all Ethnicities, Religious and Non Religious backgrounds. I abhor intolerance. I love Love and being loving. God is Love. She explained to me that Peter and Emily did not want to part with the painting as they felt it did have a positive effect on his health and may have kept him alive. If that is case , Let them keep it. without guilt, as a gift of God's Love which inspired the work as a prayer. Peter please smile like you did when I sang the Evergreen Tree Song to Emily and yourself. I remeber quite distinctly a change came over your face from cold ashen gray to a healthy complexion hue.

Impressionism, the tradition lives on in the luminous paintings of

My spiritual Diary, Was My Prayer answered?


For Years I would pray for younger people at death door and ask God to take me and let them live. It was only last year that I realized He has, but not in death but in the Life and work he has called me to do.


God has Blessed me with Spiritual Synchronistic Affirmations, even occassional brief Apparitions I know the tangible difference from visions as I have experienced both. They give me strength in my weakness, purpose and direction. The Spirit has gifted me with a dynamic Love of God in the Trinity and Jesus's Holy Mother Mary and my fellow man... That love is expressed by my being one with Him, abiding in Him and He in me, empowering my life, deeds , Art and Music, sharing God's Caring Gentle Love found in His Love Light and Truth.

I touched upon the affirmations , visions and apparitions in my section on Mystical experiences at St. Angelas and in My Pebble Beach Studio. March 13, I was under stress, praying in my usual seat in the back of the church. I was startled by someone touching my shoulder gently,, not unlike the way I gently comfort the infirmed in rest homes. I looked to my right and there was no one there but I felt a sense of peace, comfort and relief.

I went to visit rest homes and my many infirmed friends after Mass as I do almost daily. Among them was a special friend who was dying with Cancer. We helped each other grow in the love of the Lord , I shared the story of the touch I felt in church with him. My friend has been drawn closer and closer to God with each passing day. He has the ambiance of an angel, a spiritual strength you could feel quietly emanating in an outward aura.


He reached up with his arm from his bed and put his hand on my shoulder. He did not have to say one word. He said it with his touch. One could feel the comforting presence of God in his touch, see Jesus Christ in his eyes which were the portals to God in his heart. Later that evening, I remembered my Bible reading before daily Mass that Morning. I just looked it up , John 14/ 18 " I will not leave you comfortless" God did bring me comfort as always. I am thankful to my many Brothers and Sister in Christ that brightens my day with God's love as I do their's.


My Friend was summoned and escorted by angels to God's Side, Sunday, Mar. 17, 2013


The Evening before I sang my spiritual departure song to Him, Touched by an Angel". I returned on Sunday to sing it to him one last time in past tense with new words, spending some special final prayer time with this Beautiful Servant of God until it was time to take him away. That night I started a new song for Larry and my other friends who recently departed and those others I know and care for who are biding their time to go. The Spirit up lifting Song is almost complete as I have been working on it as a prayer offering for others who are ill while I am working on a prayer painting for a special some one who needs prayers. .


Living the Prayer of St. Francis"


God alway s comforts me especially when I reach out to comfort others with His Love. He gives me the strength to do my calling when I am in pain and have difficulty walking on my rest home and hospital rounds.


The Adoration Vision I was told to paint.


On more than one ocassion I would spend 5 hours ( in honor of Christ 5 most precious wounds)visiting the infirmed in the hospital and rest homes Seeking out the critically ill to pray with and sometime bringing my "Living Water "painting of a vision I experienced during Friday Adoration and was told to paint. The Prayer I wrote while working on the painting I prayed with with many infirmed that day that goes with it.

Holy Mary Mother of God, Pray for us your children while we stand beneath the living water having Bodies and Souls bathed and Cleansed by the Holy Spirit's Grace. Then with open Hearts may we jofully accept the Power and Glory of God's Perfect Healing Love. Heal Thy Brethren Lord if it be Thy Holy Will.

The youtube Video That follows of Candles at Friday's Adoration Inspired that Five hour of praying with many who were ill on Saturday. The title is " You Never Know w.hen it is your time to go" The candles informed me that the problem was in the chest area and turned out to be true.


The candles suggested a person wih a serious Chest Problem. My closest friend, spiritual advisor and mentor, Revernd Alan Woltars was not in his room in the rest home room but was in the hospital with Pneumonia. So I returned to the hospital again with my Painting to pray the Living water prayer with him. He recovered and would cross over later within a year. Him. Unbeknowing to me at the time another close friend was having a surgical Medical procedure on her chest that week end that almost killed her. She is doing well to this day.


Living the Prayer of St. Francis"


I am making this effort on line to aleviate my financial problems but am more into my spiritual well being then my financial well being.


I am giving testimony to my spiritual experiences of Living the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. That is something I have in common with Pope Francis.


Perhaps the Young Ladies from Argentina whose youthful vibrant energy helped me write Live to Love, God , Love to live, God is Love, Love and life is good,Viva El Amour, at the Lone Cypress will share with Pope Francis, my song 3 White Doves for His Pleasure and enjoyment.

"3 White doves"

I find it pleasurable and uplifting to use music as an act of prayer. The feeling is not one of the a musical virtuoso creating great Religious Musical composition but more that of a 77 year old child exploring music and song as a form of simple prayer and worship, Hoping that God would find my unschooled efforts pleasurable. I love harmonies and have explored contemporary chanting as meditation. I will sometime lay vocal track over track until the words disappear and become inaudible and become more like the sound of the singing wind. There is something lost in comprehension of the words but there is something else gained in the rising spirit of the endeavor.

My greatest pleasure in singing my spirituals once found singing them in seclusion is now found singing them softly to those who may be in a coma. I know they can hear and I will sometime perceive a change in their breathing.


Before I sang alone in my studio while I paint and still do that. It could be out doors while painting too. It could be in the confines of my car while driving down the highway. I recall one late afternoon skimming over the Bahamas Banks in a Boston Whaler with the throttle wide open Singing above the roar of a 90 hose power Evinrude “ Holy God we praise Thy Name.”

One of my more special memories was the day I found myself alone in a deserted Mission, Mission San Antoine. I sang the Hail Mary. It was like being in the presence of God in a special way, one on one. We know God is everywhere but how often do we really feel His Presence. You can if you try. When you are alone and connect with the Lord it is far more reaching emotional experience than found among the masses.

If you sing like me, It is better to sing alone to God than to disrupt the choirs of humanity where voices are raised in beautiful praises that other might be spiritually inspired by the vocal gifts that God has given them.


God has improved my voice, as I grow old so that it may touch the hearts of the infirmed and the healthy with His messge of love and forgiveness.

While painting at Lourdes, France, I met a religious order of two, Francis, Heart of Mary, and Sister Claire. They approached me and started a conversation dealing with the thoughts I was pondering that day. It was almost like they read my mind. I took them out to dinner, sharing the evening with them discussing the positive intercession of Mother Mary in behalf of people in need. They asked me to buy a rosary and say it often. I said I would if Sister Claire bathed in the water at Lourdes as she appeared to be in a weakened state and had to rest when we went up the path leading out of the shrine area.

I recalled that evening how my mom told me when I was baptized that my dad took me in his arms and placed me on the alter near the baptismal font which just happened to be an altar dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. I took it to be something out of his Jewish past. But I always have this deep sense of caring respect for mothers in general and love for my mother and Christ's Mother in particular. I share my feelings on this subject openly. There are some Christians who pay little heed to Christ's words to John on Calvary, "Son behold thy Mother." When one looks back to Christ's first miracle it was done at Mary's request at the wedding feast of Canna. My basic feeling is that Christ wants his mother treated with the same respect and love that we extend to our own mothers.

I have returned to Lourdes on a second trip to bring more of Mary's water back for people who are ill. I believe that the positive energy of prayer and a persons faith can help heal them. Through my music and letters I try to help them. There are some people I am drawn to help through personal contact. I do not pretend to be a healer with unique gifts. I am just a messenger with the message, God Loves You, Love Him in return. He will help you in a way that is predestined and ordained. God’s love does not always bring miracles but His love does bring inner peace.

Unique experiences while painting in Lourdes France and in Assisi, Italy, had a profound affect upon formulating a gentle loving, giving and forgiving approach to life. In Assisi, while painting in the hills where St. Francis lived, I was enthralled in some way but disappointed in others. There were Nuns. There were Franciscan Brothers walking and praying. There was the sound of young voices raised in song-filled praise. It was wonderful, but there was no signs of animal or bird life. I was used to seeing pictures of St. Francis surrounded with animals and birds. I kept painting and looking for some form of wildlife or feathered friends. I stopped painting and started shifting the pebbles at my feet looking for an ant. At that moment three white doves flew into the branches of a tree that was in my painting so I painted two of them in, as one was in a higher branch that was not in my painting. I called the painting "Doubting Thomas." After that experience it seemed as if there were always two doves about. I thought the other one must be the Holy Ghost.

I started a song that afternoon, "Three White Doves"

It was inspired by a synchronistic affirmation at Assisi when 3 white doves flew into a tree in my painting when out of desperation and disappointment I was turning over stones at my feet looking for some form of Natural life other than people. Prior to that I did not see any form of natural life, No Birds , Bees or Butterflys.

The song," 3 White Doves, Story photos of Doves Taken that day while painting in Assisi, are to be seen along with other unique experiemces by clicking on "Spirituality and Creativity in My Directory on Homepage.


My request of Hispanics to Translate my Rosary songs , Mary songs and Spirituals into Hispanic Languages


I shared images of My Hispanic Madonna Painting celebrating the Rosary and Jesus Christ's Message of Love, inspired by a Spanish speaking Mass I attended in Santa Cruz Ca. with Hispanic Visitors from South and Central America, Spain and Portugal I met at the Lone Cypress. I felt like a missionary there as I could share my love of the Lord, Life and Pace efforts with People from around the world.

Some one made an unjustifyable complaint and they shut me down for having prints for sale. I followed their orders and no longer had my prints there. Some people would give me a $10 dollar donation to help defray the expense of my CDS as I have given away thousands in the past. I gave the majority away free. I may have upset the powers that be by writing about the need to Love not to hate and truthfully about Infections in Hospitals and abuse in Churches. Both send the problems away from where the problem was created, unfortunately into your community. Politics and the angst and ill feeling that have grown more common with regressive state of Political affairs and they do not belong in Churches and also creates problems in hospitals. You can read that section , Positive Experiences at the Lone Cypress and see Photos and stories of New Friends from around the world.

What I wrote in that section led to Security Guard's threatening attitude. You tell me who would be upset. Could it have been my positive suggestion of the copper tables to stem MERSA Staph and the mention of Bill Bates , Carmel's beloved cartoonist who died with MERSA Staph, after a simple heart procedure. He was not the First, nor will He be the last. You don't hear about it because it is swept under the of Law suits, settled out of Court. Truth will always arise but many will suffer time and again by the subterfuge. That is why I am an advocate of Copper tables in medical environs.


Pope Francis's new Welcomed Humble Attitude not Not Pomp and Vain Altitude "


It would be wonderful to have audiences with the Pope not up for sale so the largest contributers to the church get the Papal Audience. It would be good to have more young creative People with a dedication to God's Peace and Love be received by the Pope. May be sometimes He might even see an old artist with a child like mind. Artist are like so child like they can slip into senility with out anyone being aware of the change. Though their memory might give them away.


Creative for Christ "


I am totally into the words that Christ spoke while on earth inscribed in red in the New Testament. My prayerful Hope is to continue to use my creativity in art and music to praise to the Lord and lead others to Him.. With God's Help I function well under duress. Sometimes it is almost like a miracle like it was in what I will now relate to you..


In 2007 or 2008 Our home was to be foreclosed. My wife wanted me to move our pick up from the yard so it would not be lost. There was a huge cypress branch that grew against the car blocking entry to the car.That night my blood pressure was going up and down like the elevator in New York's Empire State Building In an effort to relax and get it stable, I imagined sailing in the Caribbean, wing on wing on my yawl over the clear turquoise sea.. It was a wonderful experience that I wanted to share. I directed my voice loudly below through the companionway, is there anyone there? There was no reply. Then I heard a voice, from behind me" I am with you. " A beautiful comforting sense of peace flowed through me and somthing happened to me that I could not explain.


A Miracle Change


When I awoke the next day I went from being this weak ill 72 year old person, not capable of doing anything strenuous with out getting dizzy and faint having to stop and lean against something so I would not pass out or fall over. I had became stronger than I was at 21, becoming energised and amazingly strong. I ended up using a 14 lb. two handed skill saw with one hand

sides because of it's thickness while holding on to another limb with my free hand while atop of a 6 foot step ladder, Then using the branches stubs to climb up to cut higher branches.over 5 hour of arduos work and felt great!


You can overcome stress


Stress . happens when you freeze and stop trying. You don't have time for stress when you dive in, knuckle down and be creative, face the problems , taking care of business to solve the problem. My problems came in multiples in March of 2013. The power, telephone and water were all in danger of being shut off and my foot problem was almost imobilizing . I did not find it daunting. All Challenges can be met when you feel God is by your side. God never lets you stay down for the count. When you fall you get up and climb again, always higher up that mountain, never down for the count. So my friend should you fall, Get up my friend. Get up and climb again! In a way doing hese video and web page work was a little complex for a 77 year old, God must have helped me with this as I did a lot of work that just flowed together with a minimum amount of problems.


Last week I visited a lady named Patty who was waiting for her time to cross over to the other side. Normally the Husband , Brother and daughter were there but I did not see them, so we were alone . I prayed and sang my "Ave Maria" and " Touched by an Angel", My departure spiritual s ong for those who may be leaving soon . Yesterday Morning she was gone to heaven at 89. I was concerned about her 97 year old sister in another rest home whom I have been a friend with a couple of years. I visited her and was releived she was still with us..


There are new friends with new problem arriving and old friends departing all the time in my calling. There are young patients that have had major problems for years . I always bring them Hope and God's Love and positive stories found in the Gospels. Like Christ healing at the pool of Bethsheda. To never lose sight or the hope of God's Healing grace. It always feel good to see the improvement and sometime cures that some will realize . Some time I will use the Bible other times my Guitar and singing spirituals and other songs. A fair number will have prints I have given them free that I tape or glue a picture of Christ's Heart of Divine Mercy into the Heart of the scene. One of my greater joys is singing my Love song, the Evergreen Tree to couples in resthomes,where one is taking care of the other, in a beautiful testimony to their everlasting love and care for their love one and each other. I am always smiling and bringing humor at times when appropriate to lift their spirits..


Those of you who walk tall and rightous on the edge of darkness looking for evil in others, take care and change your ways. Look for the Light of God's Love in other hearts and you will find the Light of God light in your own heart. Let it shine ! Don't obscure it by a hyper focus on your perception of evil in the world. Focus on the Light of God's Love! Let it shine!


I have been on a spiritual journey following the footsteps of Christ, influenced by St. Francis of Assisi. I have had an array of Homeless People with an array of problems



Videos for Holy Land Painting Peace Pilgrimage Fundraiser is in limbo. My health and ability to walk will be the deciding Factor There are alway some flexability in the Prices. But that particular saleis over and a fair number of people participated in it acquiring some of my favorite paintings from my own collectionThe videos are effective to show the work and progressive developmental relationship and growth relating to geographical and time influences.

I removed all my figure studies from display in my home and will sell them all together in one lot. A video of them is available to serious collectors. src="./christ_sm.jpg">

"The Shroud of Christ"
24 x 36 -- Artist's Collection

Some day, my painting of the "Shroud of Christ" will be presented to a church as a gift. Father Gabrielle of St. Remy was the first to ask for my painting of the Shroud. He was my friend and chaplain at the chapel at the asylum of St. Paul de Mausole in Provence where Vincent Van Gogh sought solace. I would have given it to him but a Nun in charge of the chapel said no. There was some controversy dealing with the shroud that focused on carbon dating. The most recent test placed the shroud back at the time of Christ. "

I did another special painting of Christ called the Prince of Peace. This work portrayed an image of Christ based on the "Shroud of Christ.I gave that painting to Father Ed for his church in Africa"In the interest of promoting peace and understanding among all who worship God". It was a spontaneous gift, I felt I should and did not know why I gave it to Father Ed. In the past other have tried to purchase the work and I said no. I was pleasantly surprized to find out the name of his Church later. It was St. Patricks. I went to St Patricks school in New York from the first to the eight th grade and was an altar boy at St, Patricks church,. when I was a kid.

Many of the great artists of the past and present have used their creative energy to reflect their faith. Why not encourage more? Perhaps we could do at least one work a year, reflecting spirituality in thanksgiving for the gift from God of our talents. Click on the thumbnail painting above to see a larger image.

"Carly's Special Friend, The Lone Cypress, A Prayer Painting"
24 x 30 -- Artist's Collection

This painting was offered up as prayer when I was informed by Carly, young lady with Cystic Fibrosis from Australia that she was being taken off the transplant list as she was not healthy enough for a lifesaving double lung transplant that she was waiting for close to a year. As a prayer offering, For a period of three weeks I repainted the changing times of day taking it to morning light for a few days, then the next couple days through afternoon, Then to sundown There is almost an elephant skin texture from the many layers of paint. This process was repeated over and over again till I heard the welcome news that Carly had a successful double lung transplant. Click here to read her poetry. Click on the thumbnail painting above to see a larger image.

Shortly after I loaned this painting to a Christian couple. Emily came into my gallery and asked if I had a painting of the Last Supper of Christ. She said Her husband was out in the car resting Her husband was very ill with cancer. The doctor told them not even to bother with Chemo as the cancer was too invasive. I told Emily to come back tomorrow and I would prepare one of my Lourdes water bottles for Peter.I prepared my Lourdes Water bottle for Peter with one of my seascape painting on it. I sang my Evergreen Tree song for them and and Peter's complexion changed from ash gray to more color. Peter wanted to buy one of my mini prints called Heaven's Gate I said Peter I want you to have it as a gift as I knew he was not working. I told him the story about my Moongate prayer painting and how I believed it help this young lady who was too ill to have a necessary double lung transplant or she would die. I worked on the painting as a prayer offering for her for about three weeks and I received a call from Australia telling me her health has changed for the better and she was able to have the transplant. I told them she was doing well and was coming to visit me from Australia later that year, and I wanted her to see the painting she inspired me to do. I told Peter and Emily Carly would not becoming to America foir another 6 months so I wanted them to enjoy the positive energy in the work. I think of my work as holistic impressionism, that in the the same way that nature when coupled with belief can have an uplifting effect on individuals. Peter and Emily Gonzales never returned the painting as promised and I thought that perhaps Peter has passed away.

A couple of years later I came across Their address and telephone number late at night. I was going to call them the next morning to find out how Peter was. Emily called me that morning out of the blue , It was almost like mental telepathy! She said Peter was well and he wanted to come with her when they brought the painting back as he wanted to visit with me. I suggested that perhaps they could ship it up. She said they would. After a period of time went by , I called Emily and she said I had the wrong number. I do believe that it was her as I knew I had the right number.

In spring of 2013 , I had a new friend I was reaching out for help visit my home. She also helped me by enlightened me with her knowledge of Shamanic Healing that she studied for years. She informed me, I was doing healing forms, naturally with out training that she was trained to do and there were cases of healings of people with out treatment as when I Put Lisa Face in a heart shape in Image of Heart of Divine Mercy and wrote Sister Lisa Has Jesus In her heart and Jesus has Sister in His Heart on the cd of healing songs I prepared for her. When I would use candles and other objects of art in my videos I reached out to help that I used specific creativity in the process that shamans will do. It may have had more of a profound effect than I gave it or myself credit for other than being a facilitator. I believe God does the healing when it is his will. I do pray for and with people and my art and music will often be offered up as a prayer. I reach out to people of all Colors, all Ethnicities, Religious and Non Religious backgrounds. I abhor intolerance. I love Love and being loving. God is Love. She explained to me that Peter and Emily did not want to part with the painting as they felt it did have a positive effect on his health and may have kept him alive. If that is case , Let them keep it. without guilt, as a gift of God's Love which inspired the work as a prayer. Peter please smile like you did when I sang the Evergreen Tree Song to Emily and yourself. I remeber quite distinctly a change came over your face from cold ashen gray to a healthy complexion hue.
