THe Change from a Fair Mother Mary and Child to a Black Madonna and Child

All My Mobility Problems started with improper post operative care after Nov.2005 Metal to Metal Hip replacement.

It seems signifacant that my hip would be painful just before my upcoming operation at the VA Hospital. The pain started a couple of weeks ago out of the blue. Hip area of the right leg becomes very painful after sitting down and elevating my feet as I should. In fact any time I sit down.the Pain kicks in when I get up. I thought it strange that I would find myself back at the starting point of my mobility health Problems.

One of my long time good friends I would pray with who bcame another benficiary of the Positive Healing Energy that was present at Carmel Hills when Her tumors disappeared in the same period that Ruben had his Miracle like change wondered why I was using a cane in obvious pain. I told her My Hip where I had the hip Transplant transplant has really been bothering me. She informed me of a class action suite involving metal to metal hip replacements. I checked with the surgeons office and it was the same manufactuer of my Hip transplant.

2 years later while debrieving the wound I acquired MERSA Staph at the wound care facility at Community Hospital of Montrey after a wound care specialist came over to me directly from working on a the legs of a patients whose wounds covered his whole legs that looked like open rotten flesh and were so repulsive he looked like a zombie. 2 days later my legs erupted in horrible looking, painful wounds of the living dead. It affected my health completly and I thought I may die. MERSA Staph killed more people in 2007 then AIDs did!

If I had a Medical Advocate I would not have been in tha position and required extended wound care. The surgical Hose would have been checked daily as they should have been not left on for close to a week.

First visit to CHOMP since Being Banned for My Mother's Day Visits with 4 patients

I returned to the Community Hospital of Monterey, CHOMP for the first time since the police warned me I was not wanted there. I have been encouraging a friend to pray for the courage to do the right thing involving a heart procedure. I escorted her to her Heart specialist prior to the procedure and then brought her home from the Hospital . after spending some time in recovery ,sharing the Bible with her there prior to release, I gave her a ride Back to her residence at Sunrise where both her friends and staff at Sunrise embraced her with affection and joy that things went well for her.

But then again I believe this lady has a special relationship with God as she is always reaching out to help other. Nora was the Lady who was released from CHOMP Terminally Ill over 5 years ago to return to her resthome and die. I met her in the interim, we bonded by our Mutual Love of the Bible and our belief in Miracles that God is capable of granting. She treated me to a light repast at Petra a wonderful Jordainian Restaurant in Pacific Grove that was very enjoyable for both of us. As Nora was born in Egypt and the Mid East and Jordan and Petra were Highlights for my boys and I on our painting trip around the world. My Next effort will be to encourage Nora's nece ssary dialysis treatment.

I believe that Hospitals do some great work and am an advocate of necessary hospital treatment. I am also an advocate for Medical Advocates that can insure that all goes well as it should!

I do get involvedon a spiritual and support basis for the gravely ill and encourage Hospital treatment. I apply myself to aleviate their fear when necessary and do believe Miracles happen in the hand of Caring Doctors and Nurses when their hands are Guided by the loving hands of God and his angels. I am fully aware of the neccessity of Medical Avocates to insure the well being of your love ones. There are times when the bottom line relating to profits lead to errors. along with the the human tendency to have spans of lack of caring focus and attention that can endanger ones life and limbs. Hospitals should focus more on saving lives then saving face, adressing problems that affect the health of patients immediatley and with an overview of proven successful means and meathods to eliminate the dangers of infection and other risks involved with hospital stays. My Operation is medical procedure involving shortening my Metatarsal Bones then screwing them back together. My concern is that they may screw them down to the floor. My Hammer toes will be straightened so I will no longer have a 3 extra hammers advantage at my at my disposal if I have difficult selling my art and have to return to carpentry.

New Youtube of In Progress Memorial Commission Painting, Gentle Woman, A time for peace and Love.Which will include a new song in Progress that the painting inspired.

I went to Emergency Room at VA Palo Alto Hospital, June 2nd because of increasing pain below the Metatarsal area of my Right foot as advised by Palo Alto Podiatry as there was no openings before my June 16 th Appointment. The visit was Non Productive I was not seeking addctive pain Pills that could make me a driving hazard, DUI.

They instructed me to come back the June 16th as contrary to what I was told at prior visits The Last X Rays showed no Problems as prior X rays revealed.

I have had some almost miracle changes, Like Macular Degeneration and the hole in the back of the eye disappeared which the opthalomologist said never happens and my vision improved to where I did not have to wear glasses to read.

There was another time when crippling Pain from severe Venus Reflex Dermatitus ended when I directed the shower head on thick crusted skin with deep cracks & crevices revealing what appeared to be raw flesh underneath ended when after praying for releif I directed the flow from the movable shower head and said, Let this be like Lourdes water. The Thick skin peeled off like banana peels, it looked like pink baby skin and the pain was gone.

New Youtube of my Last Commission Painting, Gentle Woman, A time for peace and Love.

Underlying theme for Peace among the Children of ABRAHAM is reflected in my latest and 2 other paintings of Mary , Queen of Peace and love featured in the video along with a Painting of a Cool Blue Eyed Jesus , The Greatest Kahuna. The eyes in all 4 paintig are striking. I used in the video, my new song in Process called Time, A Time for Peace and love along with the Gentle Woman Hymn I love as it personifys Mother Mary and in turn all wonderful Moms.

I limited my rest home visit to 8 hours one Sunday and was content to Plus 5 Hours another Sunday, Stayed home more working on painting and songs etc. I had to take get off your feet breaks when directed to do so because of Pain that went from grating your teeth and other time biting your lips

Earlier writings, Time to Limit my walking and stay off my feet

My problem Leg and foot became more of a problem as a result of my Mother's Day 10 hour Marathon of visiting and singing "Gentle Woman" to rest home Mothers. I made an appointment to see the VA Podiatrist who examined me at the Palo Alto Hospital and found the dislocated bone in the metatarsal area but that is scheduled for June 16. I am contemplating going to the emergency room at the VA hospital in Palo Alto as the pain has been intense.

I have limited my outside my home activities and have been enjoying exploring creativity at home, Working on a new Commission Painting of Mary, Queen of Peace. The Individual will have a wonderful uplifting Painting of Mary , a 24 by 30 inch painting for $ 2000 dollars taking avail of my current half price sale, as it would normally be $4000. He put $500 down and upon completion will pay the balance on time. I love Painting Mary and offering the work up as a Prayer for specific People who are ill . I am also composing new songs, spiritual video work, writing and finally elevating my legs now and then.

Banned Again May 12, Monday, Surprise call from Montery Police informing me I have been Banned from Community Hospital.

I am not wanted there and will not have acess to any Patients Rooms. My first concern was my Patient friends. As it was unwarrented I wondered if there was something that they did not want me to see. I been having a feeling, one of them may have picked up a serious life endangering MERSA staph infection at the Hospital.

The Hospital may be concerned I would report any new Staph incident like I did when Bill Bates Carmel's beloved cartoonist contracted Mersa Staph and died after minor heart surgery at Chomp. I knew and liked Bill Bates, not just his satirical cartoons. There were other good friends from my rest home visits I knew and cared about who died with MERSA Staph who were also treated at CHOMP before their death. There was always the legitimate unanswered question Where did they acquire it. It is not uncommon or undesirable to release the patient back to the rest home where their passing can have less drama , no code blues and the transition to the other side easier on the family.

My Sunday behavior as a hospital visitor was impeccable, following all the hospital codes of proper visitor behavior. The police call, and having images of me printed and distributed in the hospital as an unwanted person wandering around the hospital bothering patients in their room was denigrating, dishonest and without warrent.

I was MERSA STAPH victim & acquiring staph at Community Hospital that traveled through my system. In 2007 , the year I acquired it Staph had killed more people than aids and there for awhile I thought it may kill me.

In an effort to alieviate the MERSA Staph problem at Community Hospital and other hospitals and health care centers, I have been a strong advocate of the various uses of Antimicrobial Copper Touch Surfaces that have been proven sucessful and saved lives by stemming MERSA Staph.

Antimicrobial Copper Touch Surfaces have been proven to Reduce Infectious Bacteria including MERSA Staph and have saved Lives in Healthcare Environments.

They are being used in many hospitals to stem the spread of Staph infections.

www.infectioncontroltoday.com/~/media/Files/Medical/Whitepapers/2013/06/antimicrobial-copper-june.ashx

Business Case for the use of Antimicrobial Copper Touch Surfaces to Reduce Infectious Bacteria in Healthcare Environments

Someday the Hospital Board will do what the current hospital administration has failed to do to insure the patients would have the safest Bacteria free enviroment possible.

To do so could protect the lives of the patients who may well be your family members or friend. Intelligent Board members, Doctors, Nurses and Vounteers who want the utmost bacteria free enviroment to insure good result in all operations and medical procedures could form an independent committee to report to and insure positive action and response from the Administration. To not address the problem, to save face will have ascerbate the problem by losing lives.

" Save Face, Lose Lives"

will stay up todate on the elimination of needless death due to the contamination of Bacteria. They should share the information with other board members and oly then present it to the administration . for will get it who want their love ones and freindsone who cares Impliment the use of copper alloys in it's various effective approaches in crucial areas like operating rooms, wound care areas and rooms where patients with MERSA Staph Infections. They have proven to be effective in eliminating an overwhelming percentage of the bacteria, saving lives in the process.

I do what I do because I care about people and love my fellow men and women.In the same way I try to save souls before they cross over, I try to save Lives so they don't cross over before their time and I Pay a dear price for speaking the truth by those who allow infections to fester, Not just in Hospitals but also in situations anywhere that tolerate abuse or encourage discrimination.

The health trials and pain was actually a Blessing as I became closer to God. That happens to people when they contemplate their own inevitable end time, death and prepare to cross over to the Kingdom of God's love. I stayed in that Religious state and through meditation, prayer and living the Gospel by reaching out to serve and love my fellow man as Jesus loves you, I grow closer to God each day by patiently easing others back to God when they have drifted away before they cross over to the otherside.

I found it significant that the first call on phone video was from a lady I call my Jewish Mystic Friend who was deemed Terminal 4 years ago who was released from CHOMP to go to a rest home in PG and die.

We would pray together , read the Bible and she survived. She once said that she believed I had something to do with her being alive. I told her God had everthing to do with that. He is keeping you here had everthing to do with that. She was alway helping others and lived to share the word of God.

I was Banned from the rest home in Pacific Grove because of my attention and service to Nora. I sent a casual E mail to a Musician friend in Northern Cal commenting that I guess CHOMP does not want me to uncover any skeletons in their closet.

Did the Skeleton in the Closet E-Mail bring about BAM! BAM! Banned!, A series of events that would make it difficult for me to continue my rest home ministry started Happening! Some of it from My Church and the Legion of Mary group I belonged to...Donations can influence churches.

I never gave much thought to the possibility that a certain number of patients who are in rest homes are there as a result of Problems created during treatmentir becvause of I was banned from the Pacific Grove resthome on Light house, At Delmonte Rest Home on David Ave, I had to have X Rays to continue my ministry there. . The Carmel head of Legion of Mary said our Presidium Our Legion of Mary group could no longer visit the 2 rest homes Skyline Forest Drive ,or Carmel Hills which they have done for years as church Members from St.Angela's were in these rest homes. We were told the rest homes were in the Carmel Presidium District.

Then the pastor of St. Angelas, Father Paul whom I like, whispered discreetly to me while I was receiving communion one morning to see him after mass in the Church Library. When I met him He ask me not to visit the Pacific Grove rest home as I went there too much and they were going to sue the church because of me. I told Father Paul, Father, My Obedience is to God not to man and there are people in need there that I feel are in my care and I can not desert them. My strong concern was really for Nora well being. I told Father Paul I would talk to the the owner who was a Mormon and I get along well with Mormons and liked him in spite of the outcome. The owner told me , No one mentioned suing the Church. George you may be the nicest man in the world but you are banned from my rest home!

I continued my resthome ministry as a caring individual in places that our Presidium were forbidden to go and did all the other Legion requirements while our small Presidium was in existance. rest homes that we were told not to visit by the head of I sang and visited people in rest homes over 50 years ago in Conn. I joined the Legion of Mary so they would not shut it down as they were in dire need of members. My Mother was a member and would go and visit people who were ill with Stella Reichmuth, my neighbor. Stella made arrangements for me to sing free at one of the Legion larger affairs, involving all of all the presidiums held at St. Angelas long before I became a parish and Legion ofMary member. Stella was familiar with my trips to Lourdes bringing back Lourdes water to share with the Ill and the positive effects it had on them. She had me sing while playing my some of the many Healing Mary Songs I composed.

Monday My son went and picked up my Alltruism Painting I loaned Tom Fielding from Tom's room. The hospital staff checked Audrey's former room and also lost and found and could not find the Painting Living Water anywhere. Thank God it went to Windsor house I found out the next day. I would have picked the work up earlier but was banned from the Hospital and could not do so.


I was told Tuesday by the supervisor at Chomp ,The Adoration Vision Painting, I loaned Audry Rose has been tranferred to her room in Windsor House when she left the Hospital to return there.


"Living Water "painting of a vision I experienced during Friday Adoration and was told to paint. and the prayer I wrote while working on the painting which I have prayed with good results with many infirmed since creating the work. I have shared both the Painting and Prayer with friends I knew and others that their friends asked me to visit and pray with them them when they were Ill.

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

May 11, Sunday, Mother's day was a long wonderful day spending over 10 hours sharing the Light of God's Love with more patients and friends then I ever had before in one day.

The beautiful Hymn Gentle Woman, which I sang soft and low, while lightly stumming the nylon strings of my classical Guitar. It touched the hearts of Many Mothers in rest homes on Mother's day, moving some to tears of Joy That were echoed in my own tears. I am very perceptive and responsive to shared human emotions especially when you can feel God's Love Present.

I will reflect on the start of my day which started after the 10 O clock Mass At St. Angelas, where I sing in the choir.

It is the usual progression to enjoy the comradery with parishoners friends at coffee and donuts after Mass, then leave to cheer up and pray with my ill & infirmed friends at the various rest homes for a few hours and more before returning home to elevate my right leg and rest, as I have circulatory problems in my right leg and dislocated bone pain in my right foot.

I went directly to CHOMP , Community Hospital of Monterey, as I had 3 close friends that were special to me and the Aunt of 2 parishoners of St. Angelas who were married May 10, the Saturday before Mother's day.Butch and Teena's wedding was beautiful as was the reception at the church Hall. Some would also join them at Cocos Restaurant for dinner. I shared my love Song, singing the Evergreen Tree at their table with Teena who has a beautiful voice singing along. Later I would sing it for my good friends and fellow parishoners, Leroy and Norma Schawb,the same evening after dinner at Cocos when I brought the Eyes of Mary Painting over to their home to enjoy for awhile

It was during dinner at Cocos, I was informed of Butch's Aunt being in the hospital as they spoke of their desire to see her before they left on their honeymoon. Butch informed me his Aunt had an infection in her Leg which was vauge. It aroused my empathy as a MERSA Staph infections I picked up at the hospital that traveled through my system. Staph had killed more people than aids that year and there for awhile I thought it may kill me. I became a strong advocate for copper top tables and still am as they have proven to be effective in eliminating Staph infections and saving lives. The health trials and pain was actually a plus as I became closer to God. That happens to good people when they contemplate their own inevitable end time, death and prepare to cross over to the Kingdom of God's love. I stayed in that Religious state and through meditation, prayer and living the Gospel by reaching out to serve and love my fellow man as Jesus loves you, I grow closer to God each day by patiently easing others back to God when they have drifted away before they cross over to the otherside.

I feel I am on God's auto pilot being directed in what I do and where I go to touch others with God's Love. I am moved creatively by the Holy Spirit in my art, songs and prayers of praise and healing which more often than not have been inspird by the needs of others and offered up as prayers for their well being. I will solicit more prayers from other like minded spiritual friends and our prayers have been answered at times when it is God's Holy will.

Of the four people I visited at CHOMP, My visit with Lois Barker, Butch's aunt was the most Joyful. I brought my beautiful Painting I had a vision of during Adoration to share with her along with the healing prayer inspired while creating the painting. I also sang a spiritual song as I had my Guitar.There were 2 other people with her and they graciously asked me if I would like to receive Communion with Lois and it was wonderful. We all prayed with and for Lois. Lois said she was so happy that Butch found a Lady that would bring him Closer to God in Teena. I shared with Lois how Butch and Teena emmanated happiness like teenagers in Love when I would see them after church services or at parish affairs.

Lois was disturbed at being told by someone on the hospital staff that she was going to be released with out seeing the doctor who operated on her Leg. I told her it is common to go to a rehabs like Wayland house etc after an operation. I did mention the importance of having a Medical advocate to insure your well being when in a hospital or in rehab. This was recommended to me by other volunteers, including those in Palliative care in Rehabs and homes when I would meet them while visiting the same patients they were caring for. I have a gift of bringing people the peace of the Lord at these times. The Palliative care workers have seen the serious problems that arise when some aspect of pre or post operative care is missed or overlooked.

My First visit was with Tom Fielding, whom I met when I took His Sister in a wheel chair to visit him after He was released from Intensive care I have been praying with her and driving her on her various errands. I like Tom and write about him positively in earlier sections of my journal. He asked me to bring my Guitar again and sing some other songs for him. I loaned Him one of my special paintings, Living water and told him that another friend with Cancer, Linda Rose would enjoy having it for awhile. He was all for sharing it and I brought him another art work Alltruism that could very well be inspirationally therapeutic for those who care for him.

My Next vist was with Ora Lee Garcia from St. Angelas and former president of our Presidium of our Legion of Mary Member group. I sang my Ave Maria Song for her and told her That every time I visit a specific resthome that the two of us would visit together as as a Legion of Mary team. I now return by myself and sing Martha a Mary song including the Ave Maria to a lady she thought was a Hundred Years old that she asked me to visit 3 years ago as she had no visitors. I shared the Living Water Painting and prayer with Ora Lee. She told me I was Blessed by God. My answer was God has blest you too Ora Lee and He will bless you with Healing so you can continue your good work. She said "I may be going home tomorrow George" As I write this a week later I pondered whether she was speaking of her home in Heaven or the her home on second Street.

Walking the hard uncarpeted floors of CHOMP is very hard on my right Leg so I planned my visits to see 3 of the patients in a manner that would require less walking. and then end my Visit in Audrey Rose' Room which is another area.

On my last hospital visit with Audrey Rose she told me she would enjoy having the Painting for a while . I brought the Living Water Painting to her room before and said the living Water healing prayer and may have sang my Gentle Woman song, in addition to her Favorite , My "You are my Sunshine".

When I left Audrey' Rose I met a woman who was visiting Tom earlier but was having difficult finding his room. I escorted her to the proper floor and his room and bid Tom Hasta la vista again.

It was after 3:15 PM when I went to my car to leave.

I had a couple of Chocolate chip cookies for lunch in my car from Saint Angelas and wrote out the words to Gentle Woman before I left CHOMP to sing Gentle Woman to Mothers in 3 different rest Homes, not returning to my home until after 10:15 PM.

A Wonderful use or application of the Breathe in Jesus Meditation Prayer

There was a lovely recent , positive response to my Eyes of Mary Painting of a Madonna and child, by a young pregnant Grandaughter of the friend I loaned the painting to while he was recovering from Pneumonia. She took a photo of the painting she was understandably attracted to and used the Breathe in Jesus, exhaling Joy Love and Peace prayer inscribed on the painting while giving Birth to her child early in May. Mother and child are doing well.

Sat.Evening, May 10 I loaned the same painting Eyes of Mary to a caring Catholic couple whom I admire and love for not only reading the Bible but living by it. They both have some health problems that are improving. We discussed my belief that when you are doing God's work serving your fellow man he keeps you here longer. I enjoyed singing my Evegreen Tree love song for them as they are still very much in love after many,many years of joyfilled marriage life. There is another prayer welcoming Jesus into your heart that I directed their attention to inscribed lightly on Mary's veil that along with the Breathe in Jesus meditation would create a positive mood for his Chemotherapy.

May,04 A Beautiful Bright Sunday Morning,, We will open with a feel good video that I did spontaneously at the Hospital Saturday, Audrey Rose on Air Guitar, Jamming with George.

Audrey Rose on Air Guitar, Jamming with George.

The past week very busy as usual with my normal minimum amount of sleep. Visiting friends in need, driving them around on errands. restoring my homepage sections that were blocked, Other chores and the pleasure of having a welcomed house guest again, Michael Seewald, an old Friend, a man of Strong Faith and a superb internationally known Photographer in my home who just returned from a photo taking sojourn in Argentina. I was up until 4 AM Saturday Morning doing a Youtube video for a collector friend and others who could not access the section of my homepage on my Half Price fundraiser sale to catch up on an array of pressing bills. I then E_ Mailed the you tube video link to him and other other friends. Some day those who interfered with my art sales, Homepage ,internet communication etc. will be caught and pay a price. Justice will prevail.

I had 2 and a half hours sleep before a wake up shower before 8 AM Mass and Rosary. I went From Church direct to the Hospital to visit Audrey and Tom, Ellen's Brother who has not been outof ICU That long. I had my Guitar with me and sang Snow was made by an angel for a little Girl and her happy dad in the underground parking lot. His wife has just given Birth to a baby girl. I told the dad. " Children are the hope of the world"

I brought photos to Audrey Rose, we extended God's Blessing to each other, Making the sign of the Cross on each others forehead, and after conversation did the video spontaneously.

I had Photos for Tom and we had an indepth conversation. I loaned the work to Him as He related to it and the prayer fit into His dialysis treatment and other medical needs after an extended period in ICU. The Painting


Sharing by Living by, the Gospels and 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.


I often would spend 5 hours and more ( 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 Purified by the Holy Spirit's Grace. Then with Open Hearts May We Joyfully Accept the Power and Glory of God's Perfect Healing Love. Heal Thy Brethren Lord if it be Thy Holy Will.

Time to get ready for 10 AM Mass and sing Praises with the choir and go where He will have me go this Sunday. I stopped in the Sanctuary to pray before leaving the church as I always do after the 10 AM Mass. There was one lady praying and 2 Eucharistic Ministers were taking the Eucharistic Hosts out of the Ciborium to bring to those unable to go to Mass and Communion.

When I arose to leave, I was pleasantly surprised and felt joy in seeing a Mother and Dad with their 3 or 4 children kneeling behind me. I told them " It is good to see You all here". In retrospect I loved seeing them there as a family spending more time together with Jesus in silent Prayer, in this Sacred Part of the church. It was special. I don't recall hearing them come in to the Sanctuary.

Who will be the 2 People to receive the Only 2 Roses from my Garden?


I only have 2 New Roses this Spring on the Rosebud Arc above St.Francis Statue. I will give them to Two People this Sunday but as I write this I do not know whom will receive them. May the Holy Spirit help me choose who.

I cut the only two long stem roses and removed the thorns before bringing them to the two people that would receive them. I wish I had more roses to share but my rose bush is is in need of rose fertilizer and the roses bush was sparce. The only two Roses were especially large, beautiful and rich in fragrance. I made the decision based on the seriousness of their medical condition.


Audrey Rose and Tom received them. I am not one normally to give a rose to a man.

I told Tom he in turn could give the rose to his daughter or one of his relatives or love ones who would visit him. I did tell Tom I some how felt a God Connection with Him. I was pleased to see how his children, relatives and friends responded to their dad's and friend's need and his daughter brought him a meditation prayer book.

Before I went to the Feast day Celebration of Jesus Heart of Divine Mercy at the Carmel Mission last Sunday I had given Tom the Jesus I Trust in You, Booklet of the Chaplets Prayers to Heart of Divine Mercy. While at the service a Franciciscan Monk in His Brown Robe came in and knelt in a near by pew to pray who looked quite a bit like Tom. His Look alike presence had me direct my prayer intentions for Tom's Spiritual welfare and his well being if It Be God's Holy will as Tom is in critical shape.

Audrey was sleeping deeply , under medication which will be administered to her at specific times to ease her discomfort. Yesterdays visit was earlier during the morning hours before her afternoon pain medication. She was bright eyed and wide awake, when we did the video together which she really enjoyed doing. We discussed prior to the video how she was feeling and she used direct strong discriptive metaphors that could be visualized. I asked her attendent to be sure to have Audrey Rose partake of the Beautiful Rich Fragrances of the Roses when she awakened.

I had my Lap top computer with yesterday's video of Audrey playing air guitar and singing to share with her, but will do it later. I did take the video and shared it with some of Her close freinds at Windsor House after I left the Hospital. They were elated to see the video on youtube , Audrey Rose enjoying herself, singing and playing Air Guitar , Jamming with George, which they have seen her do before.

The Days that followed my last update were very busy right up to Sunday's Special Feastday of Heart of Divine Mercy and the Canonization and Sainthood of 2 recent beloved Popes.

The Lady I brought the good Friday Rose to was informed her brother was in ICU in a crisis circumstance for a number of Days. The evening He was moved out of intensive care, I took His Sister to visit him. I would return the following day myself and spend an hour with him before Hospital closing time sharing some special prayers and conversations, Mano a mano.

I also visited Audry Rose who was having Chemotherapy. I asked you all to pray for her and your prayer must of had a good effect. I did not have to wear the plastic Gown , Gloves etc. She was very upbeat and alert. She even played Air Guitar like she use to when I would play and sing in the rest home where she resides. I was bringing her one of the 5 Good Friday Roses, from Our Lady of Lourdes shrine at San Carlos Cathedral.

The following day I left my Eyes of Mary Madonna that changed into a Black Madonna at the Home of a close friend for a few days as He was recovering from Pneumonia. I thought the breathe in Jesus meditation that is encouraged by the instructional words painted on the work would help him. I also brought in My Living Water Painting that I had a vision of during Adoration and my Latest Jesus painting, The Greatest Kahuna.

I planned to share the two paintings with Ellen's Brother who was a cool dude and very neat man, easy to like, intelligent, sincere caring and thankful to others. I spoke to him about the art work before. He loved the idea that the oveflowing fountain with Living water in the painting was a scallop Shell. Large scallops happened to be his absolute favorite food. I was going to bring my guitar in but it was difficult enough pushing a wheel chair with Ellen in and carry 2 Paintings at the same time. Going from the car to the elevator was difficut as THe Living Water painting was 36 by 36 inches. It became easier when I put My Jesus and my Living Water Painting on the wheel chair with Ellen. Her brother really like the Painting and the prayer for healing and wanted us to stay until closing time. When I brought Ellen Back at 9:15 PM . She asked me to help her relearn how to say the Rosary as Her prior seizures and anti-seizure medications affected specific areas of her memory. She was a competent pianist in the past and can make advance chords now but coupling them together with melodies is difficult.

Ellen found a special joy when a caring Priest brought her Communion a couple of days ago and was especially pleased when he would return the following day with a beautiful Rosary. She told me she use to say the Rosary but it is difficult to remember how now due to her anti-seizure medications and medical problems. I brought her a nice illustrated Rosary booklet on the Rosary that evening. I offered to say it with her before I took her to see her brother,but she had to receive her medication before we left and it require privacy. it is drawn out process so I visted other friend at the rest home while waiting.

Feast day of Heart of Divine Mercy and the two new Pope Saints canonizations set a postive starting mood to my day.

The Light in the air was especially beautiful with Rays filtering through the soft mist in the air while Driving to church to sing at the 10 Oclock Mass. The world was aglow with positive spiritual energy. That feeling was continued at the Special Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy special service at the Carmel Mission. Bishop Richard Garcia's Homily was excellent and filled with God's Light.

One the unique Parishoners at the Carmel Mission brought smiles to everyone face.

She was very beautiful and a little coy and shy with long Blond Hair. She proceed down the isle taking the time to go to and through different pew on opposites side as she meandered to the Front of the Church. By Now you may have realized it was a feline creature. A Lady in the very front of the Church down close to the Altar picked her and put her in the arms of Pat Kraft, an usher who escorted her out of the Church. 10 minutes later she would return and proceed toward the altar again. I am not sure whether She was here for Mass or the concert scheduled immediately after the Mass. I would find out later that she was a regular visitor. It brought another meaning to the word Cat holic Say Hello to Holy Cat holic who brings joy and smiles as she purrs while she meanders through the church. Say So long to Holy Bats Catholics, who move grimly with down turned head in the sadness of the dark. Say hello to the cool cat holic who bring joy and smiles walking in the Light of the Lord.

>> I returned home and enjoyed the dinner My Son Cooked and the Movie he selected for us to watch. when the movie was finished I wanted to do some creative spiritual work as an offering to Heart of Divine Mercy as a prayer for Peace in Our Hearts, Homes, Churches and the world and the healing of the Spirit first and for Physical Healing to follow if it is God's Holy will for many different persons. I had a new song dealing with Jesus, Heart of Divine Mercy and was considering compilin past effortsin One section which I will do! I am praying for. I was going to review and perhaps update my spiritual Journal and I generally check to see if all is well as this type of disruption has happened before and will go unnoticed for an extended period of time. could easily be missed.

Once again someone was creatng financial difficulties for me by disrupting my home page.

It was working fine Saturday. My Painting section with a great array of my more reasonable art work was essentially removed by being disabled and could not be seen. I offered up the work to repair it as a long prayer as I started to fix it around 10 PM it was 4 AM before the section was resurrected from the dead and I could catch a little sleep. I was up taking a morning refreshing shower at 6:45 AM to get ready for the 8 AM Monday Communion service, Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Tuesday Following Easter, Once again I was inspired while in my Car in the front of St.Angelas after Daily Mass and Rosary Services where I pray for help with my creative efforts to serve the Lord.

I have often started inscribing my spiritual songs, poems & prayers which came to me in Church while sitting my car so I would not forget them. I wrote the start of my prayer poem Soul Dancing there. It was brisk and windy and the large Cross to the right of entrance was draped with Linen Soul dancing in the wind. I did a number of videos with my camera on the steering wheel for stability, playing the cd of Soul Dancing in the background.

I thought it would be a good windy day to video the willows ( Not aware that they would look like they had a reverse crew cut with longer flowing lower limbs trimmed.) at Lake El Estero for use in a new video using different visual metaphors than my first effort Soul Dancing using the Greatest Kahuna, Jesus over a Kaui, Hawaiian surf scene. On Good Friday I had stopped to pick a rose at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine at San Carlos Cathedral to bring to a new Ill Patient friend in a local rest home in serious pain with severe medical complications that she came close to dying with in the past.

She was a former Parish member at the Cathedral, having in an apartment above Marshes Orientlal Museum adjoining the Cathedral property.. My Friend graduated from Santa Catalina High School in Monterey.

I arrived at the Cathedral just in time to attend 12:15 Mass and attend to other things.. I enjoy a second Mass in a different church. I stopped at the school office to let Sister Sharon know that I completed youtube of the Good Friday Way of the Cross services at the Cathedal. Then I met Father Peter, the pastor in the back of the church before mass and told him of the video completion. I gave him a business card that had remarkable photos of the white Madonna and child who became a Black Madonna and Child in my studio.

After Mass I went as usual to spend reflecting time by Our Lady of Bethlehem. I had asked permission at the school office earlier to pick 5 roses for Christ 5 Sacred Wounds to give to ill Patients. After discretely gathering 5 small rose buds, I did the video of Our Lady of Lourdes shrine with the roses soul Dancing . I did have another chance meeting & conversation about Roses with the Pastor Peter after I had gathered the 5 Roses before our conversation. I then proceeded to Lake El Estero to capture the shorn dancing willows that are in this You Tube . I would deliver the fresh rose bud to the former Cathedral parishoner that would bring her joy before returning Home that same day.

I have been to Lourdes France, Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, twice since 1975 and brought back the Holy Lourdes water to share with ill and terminal Patients. A number of them had their serious needs and prayers for them answered. I would offer up my creative efforts prayer for their well being and would have them do the same thing. Every act of living, creating and chores can be offered up as a prayer . the more difficult or unpleasant humbling chores you may do for others can be a more powerful intercession prayer.

Soul Dancing # 2 , Expanded more comlete in thought, Longer version of Poem Soul Dancing.

May 1,2014. Added to Comments on You Tube Soul Dancing, Youtube Please remove all your Devil focused video attachments at the end of Soul Dancing with Jesus Video

You are advertising the devil and Lucifer in your attachments

The phrase and Poem , Soul Dancing came to me when a person with Parkinson's disease stopped shaking and was at peace with the Lord and the world after we shared prayers. She looked quite different,younger and more beautiful when the the stress and anguish lines of pain vanished being replaced with the countenance of a joyful soul filled with her love of God and her fellow men and women. There were other positive responses with other peoples in different ways.

I visit many people in homes, rest homes and hospitals,the Ill in Pain and lonely people sharing God's love, lifting their spirits, using my God endowed creative gifts, playing Guitar, Singing, Praying , Bringing them peace and closer to Jesus which I have a gift and calling to do My Videos, Songs, and Artwork are the works of one of God's many humble disciples who shares the Good News and Joy found in Loving God by not just reading His Holy words he spoke while here on Earth but by living them. I am attracted like a man of iron to a magnet, to His words found in the Gospels. The words that Jesus spoke and following His examples of Kindnes and Love will bestow the light of God's love, wondrous joy , Deep Faith and Grace upon you.

The Contrary to Christianity and Christ Message of Love and forgiveness, devil focused attachments added on youtube do the opposite. Do not harm the Ill, They need Jesus Not the devil... In the name of Jesus, Please remove them! ( This was redited when making corrections)

I recorded and edited this video of the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday at San Carlos Cathedral, Monterey April 18/2014 along with singing in thechoir at St.Angelas in Pacific Grove, Thursday Friday Saturday and on Easter Sunday. Long days visiting and singing , Praying and Listening and making People smile in Rest Homes.

A Special Song I shared with many People this Holy Week was My Sparrow song About the crucifixion along with my Poem Soul Dancing and my New Jesus Painting in he sky of a Hawaiian Surf scene in Kaui, Hawaii , The Greatest Kahuna

Holy week was very busy with other creative thing Like Making Crosses for People to wear, working on Paintings and songs, Yard work , House work and cooking for my Son who also cooks for me at times. And trying to take care of my Business I gave one of the Crosses that I was wearing in my latst video to a Young Man as a Confirmation Gift this Easter Vigil when he was confirmed. The following week I gave the second of three crosses, I made on good Friday a smaller more delicate of the 3 to His Wife. They are a wonderful God loving couple with Mutual love for each other. It is 1:23 AM Easter Morning and I am still working on my Homepage after returning from Easter Vigil Celebration around 10:30 Wednesday 4/9/2014,

Very busy, Bible reading, Mass and Rosary, visiting People in Rest homes and Private Residences, Praying, Working on my Jesus Painting and doing more work and sharing my Soul Dancing with the Lord meditation, with others, editing My Homepage. I have become involved in driving a patient to former residence twice a day so she can administer medication to an ill pet Cat, Puff the Magic Lion cat. It also enhanced my understanding of this brighter than usual creative Person. Once again a rarity happened, I had planted a seed in my mind to go to the confession service. I was pleased with the prospect of being 10 minutes early for a change. When I arrived at the church I found out I was even earlier, like 24 hours and 10 minutes. It was too late to return to the rest home so I went home and worked on my Jesus prayer Painting, then prepared a late dinner for my son who was away at a meeting. of the Cross at the Cathedral again , Spent some time in the sun meditating by Our Lady of Bethlehem shrine. The singing at the start of Mass was like an invitation to attend another mass. which I did. I felt spiritually refreshed after like I just attended a religious retreat.

Thursday Morning 4/3/2014,

I went to the Hospital to visit a cancer patient and Met 2 really nice people in the underground Parking Lot who upon seeing my guitar smiled and asked, Am I going to play, so I played and sung You are my Sunshine ( spiritual Version ) as we walked to the elevator. In the elevator Julio , my new friend in Christ said we are all going up, with a smile that told me He was talking about Heaven. as earlier I said with smiles like adorned their faces they must have God in their heart which they affirmed in relationship to Jesus. Julio has just finished Chemotheraphy and was there for Post Chemo injections. I shared some of my Meditation exercises that were inspired by a Cancer patient I was caring for in my home at the time.


I took the above picture of Audry Rose and Her Caring Mom who is at her daughter's Bedside every day giving her daughter the care and Love that only a Mother can give. Then the long walk to where My friend had just received Pain Medicine after having Chemotherapy and appeared to be sleeping . I have never seen this lady look so beautiful, Her hair was down in a swirl on one side and she was a picture of a lovely woman at peace. She looked like a Sleeping Angel. When I started singing and playing my Guitar softly She open one eye wide and closed it after she saw me and affrmed It was not a dream . I was really there.


Sleeping Angel

I sang You are my Sunshine with my religious version and Audrey Rose my sleeping angel smiled broadly while I sang to her. Her smile even when sleeping can fill others heart with Joy. Audry Rose is a Beetle Fan who on occassion would accompany me playing air Guitar. To those who don't know an air guitar is the invisble imaginary guitar played by many people without the strings cutting into your fingers if you don't have callouses from playing. The nurse on duty by her bedside was a spirtitual person and once again the ambiance was special, some how that special feeling that you could feel God was in the room, the 3 of us were in a place where God's presence was felt . I sang some of my spiritual songs for her and knew she was close to God. A line from Susies prayer song I wrote came to mind , When angels call that roll call of young People to God's Side, Good Lord above hear our Prayers of Love , Pass on Audry Rose by. May she stay and continue to brighten up the world of her many friends.

May You ask your friends to please pray and ask others to join in Prayer for Audry Rose's recovery.

There is a power in Prayers. Please join us in prayers to Help Audry Rose recover and continue to lift the Hearts of her friends with Her ever present cheerful smile. Medical problems in her early 20 ies left her body handicaped but could not touch her cheerful smile and wonderful joyful Nature that has endeared her to her many friends.


I left her room for the long walk back to the exit, I have a problem with a disclocated bone in my metatarsal area of my foot that can be painful at times. Eventually while on the elevator I got off on the wrong floor which explained why my car was not there and about 5 minutes later at the right floor who do I meet walking to their car but Smiling Julio and Kathy we walked together toward our cars and I found my self saying, "Do I have a surprise for you, I want to sing My Evergreen Tree song which I love doing for couples in Love." The Parking lot was like an echo chamber and I even had some dogs in a far off car singing along, barking and howling on cue on the refrains. They loved it.

Then off to the nearby convalescent home to briefly visit friends that were close to me and I ended up Bringing Ruben Baez to Pacific Grove to pick up his Son Lucas to bring Lucas back to spend the day with his Dad. It felt good to do that as Ruben was looking forward to being with His son who visits on that day...

Tuesday Morning 4/1/2014,

I reached into the Holy water Font that looked empty on the way back from receiving Communion. There was a smile on my face when I made a moist Sign of the cross while kneeling saying my special "Come into my heart O Lord, after Communion Prayer, as my finger inscribed a wet sign of the Cross on my forehead before I completed the full Sign of the Cross. This was the second experience with finding Holy Water of this nature. It was not a surprize That once again I had This joyful inner glow adding to the joy of receiving Communion.

After Mass I proceeded to the Bank to make a depost that would allow me me to make a mortgage payment so I would be only 4 behind. I then Proceeded to visit 3 special People in wheel Chairs in one rest home to Share my New work with them, " Dancing with the Lord .

I returned home for a quick lunch and was working on my homepage, when I received a call from another patient in another rest home and I assured her I would see her and others there today. I have to print up some more Dancing with the Lord meditation Poem for friends in Wheel chairs in her rest home. I also want to add subtle Shadows on the eyes of "The Greatest Kahuna" My Hawaiian Jesus Painting.

Rainbow moments Shared After Praying Together for Healing

One could not but feel the joy for what ever plans God had in store for Her. This God Loving Creative lady once stood stood before Heaven's Gate very close to crossing over to the other side. God has other plans for her here on earth to use her special Talents.

We prayed together, She shared some her spiritual writing. We did the Breathe in Jesus meditation together, Followed by Come into my Heart O Lord Prayer, Then the Living Water Healing Prayer. There was a wonderful Spiritual ambiance. Subtle Tears of Joy ran down my cheeks as I read my new meditation prayer Poem for her to have her focus on "Dancing with the Lord. Contemplation led me to uinderstand that I too was dancing with Jesus. I recall in Egypt that the men in the wedding Party paintingour way around the world At the end of the poem she said, "George Look out the window," We both understood it to be a positive Sign in the heavens and responded with Joy. The view from the window was no longer obscured by rain and in it's place was a Rainbow anchored to the evergreen tree hills reaching upward to the heavens.

Monday Morning 3/31/2014,

What spurred my interest on this topic was how happy and surprised I was to Find the sacramental, Holy Water in the Holy Water font as it had been removed since the start of Lent, so once again I was able to Make he sign of the Cross with Sacramental Holy Water, with a blessing from God before leaving the Church . I have no explanation for it. All I know It felt wonderful in a joyful spiritual way, like Walking beside a peaceful stream,to find the small amout of holy water there and feel God blessing me as I made the Sign Cross before leaving the church. I love Making the Sign of the Cross after reaching into Baptismal water, Somehow it was more special. as It seem to have a more powerful spiritual effect on me of a cleansing renewal of my Baptism . I felt ever closer to God and all those Baptised with the Living Water of God'sLove...

Looking Back on it I have a sense it may have been another unique experience that I seem to be blessed with at times that fill me with joy and affirmations that strengthens me on my spiritual journey. What led me to find the water was after the Rosary I stopped to read current information on Pope Francis in the church Library and then returned to the Sanctuary to do some more random Bible reading and say some other prayers That Pope Francis will be successful in His efforts, as I many others believe, He was chosen by the Holy Spirit to do works Pleasing to God within and outside the church to bring more people to God.

I have a serious concern that some of the old Guard of the Church who are adverse to the changes in Vatican 2 and the leadership of Pope John Paul and Pope Francis will attempt to stifle and deter those who advocate changes and reformation that seem to be God Directed and led by the highest Church Authority the Pope. On a local level they may do things that seem to bring bad karma, adverse experiences to those who get involved in efforts at denigration, isolation, or advesly affecting another's lively hood, harming them business wise, interference of good works of those who are answering a calling to be a servant of God... Never do wrong to others under the illusion of rightousness or it will come back to you and your family, and friends seven time over. I cannot help feeling Sadness for those who experience loss or problems when they get involved in wrong doings for personal gain oblivious to any wrong doing nor the deception of higher authorities in the spiritual pecking order who may mislead you. They Play the game, You pay the price. The Church suffers. May the Holy Spirit enlighten You to welcome changes that reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ, That man has distorted. I am talking about Christ Commands of Love and the New Commandment, John Ch 13 Verse, 34.

Friday , March 28 After 8 AM Mass Rosary and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament I once again attended the 11:30 AM Stations of the Cross at the Monterey Cathedral. I did note they did not remove the Holy Water from the Fonts

Then once again spent some enjoyable time by the shrine of Our Lady , (Blessed Mother and Child ) of Bethlehem, took a few photo and considered doing a painting of the Theme . Not realizing I already have. In the Painting that is Both of a White and Black Mother and Child portrayed. Afterwards I wondered which way I would go and whom I would visit. Talk about sychronicity. A 16 th Century Monk in Russia Painted an Icon of Our Lady of Bethlehem and It was a Black Madonna and Child as was the sculpture That St. Luke of Bible Fame created that is in the Montserrat Shrine in Spain. I found it an intriguing after thought that Reverend Allan was awaiting my visit in the Russian Section of the cemetery and one of the first Lady of Bethlehem painting was done by the Russian Monk in the 16 th century.

After a prayer guidance before Our Lady of Bethlehem, for a sense of direction, I ended up in the Monterey Cemetery,the Place of Repose of One of my dearest frien and Spiritual Mentor, .Rev.Allan Wolters


I left a picture of Jesus, Heart of Divine Mercy just above the Grave stone of My dear close and valued friend, Rev.Allan Wolters, Former Pastor of St. Marys in PG and Saint John Chapel just off ther highway not far from the airport. A Priest of is own Espicopalian Faith discribed him as a Saint. I prayed by His site to the Lord for specific People that needed healing as Allan has been involved in healings. He counseled me that I should consider that I too have been blessed with certain unique gifts of knowing and understanding, that also include healing... I have been reluctant to call myself a healer and alway try to have others pray with me for those in need of Healing. I am a strong believer in the power of prayers. I do feel I am a facilitator at times, having a strong sense of God's Presence abiding with in me and I abiding in Him. We should all feel that joy at Communion time and at other time when You invite Jesus into your heart in Spirital Communion which you can at any time and any where and He will be there with you and for You.I am more into healing the soul first and share in the joy when physical healing follows which has happened. Allan would be surprised by the spiritual depth of the prayers I wrote and shared with the ill including himself when He was in the Hospital. Some would become spiritual songs.

I trust in the after life He still has that wonderful relationship with the Lord he had while he was here in hope that his Soul would pray with me for my friends who are ill and infirmed as he onced prayed with a soldier when He was the pastor of the St. John's Chapel. The soldier who was on the way to the airport to depart for war in the Mid-East. They prayed the rosary together.. Rev. Wolter shared with me how the same soldier came back a couple of years later to thank Him for saying the Rosary with him as soldiers were dying all around him and he felt protected .In the same way I have been protected from those who would be negative factors who would do me injustice or try to harm me in any way or interfere with or distract me from my Spiritual work.

I would return home and do more extensive work on my new Jesus painting The Greatest Kahuna as It is a Hawaiian Painting and the Jesusits use to use spiritual terms that their prospective Christian used to communicate with them. Not that The Greatest Kahuna will end up in Hawaii but one never knows. . I listened to the Stations I recorded at the Cathedral last week. I thought it would be more of a deeper Lenten Prayer offering than Chatting with interesting people after the Half Hour Lenten Service during the delightful sharing of Soup and Bread following the service. My Spiritual Journal is Focused on Lent & the Stations & Ways of the Cross, New Painting of Jesus in Kaui Hawaii, a work in progress, like my spirituality, for my friends with Health problems in need of healing. There have been many paintings of Jesus over another on that one painting.

Greatest Kahuna, Kaui, Hawaii Painting.

Our Father Who art in Heaven, Pray for My Sisters & Brothers

Bless them with the joy found Loving you and each other.

Heart of Divine Mercy Hills, Miracle of the Dancing Sun, Philippines.

We Pray the Chaplet of Jesus's Heart of Divine Mercy every day at St.Angelas after the daily Morning Rosary after the 8 AM Mass.

My Focus on Jesus's Heart of Divine Mercy has helped those in dire need when I prayed to him and combined His Image with those individuals in need. These effort used in my Prayer videos were highly successful. There is an example of how I first used it on a cd. in the cancer section. and they were used in my prayer videos for individuals when I would ofer up my efforts as a prayer for them.


You Will Survive Your Illness, What ever your affliction may be, if it be God's will and you ask for God's Mercy through Prayer.
Reach Out to God, with Trust,
He is reaching down to you with Love.
Trust in His Divine Mercy.
Pray it be God's Will!


I put a heart shaped photo of Lisa where Christ heart is in the Heart of Divine Mercy . . I visited Lisa another Sister in Christ, Lady of Faith Friends who I contributed art work for her cancer expenses and offered prayers & Prayer videos to Heart of Divine Mercy for cancer cures for hers and others. I was elated when she told me her cancer was gone with out treatment. Praise be God & Alleulia. Lisa and I were Kindred spirits spiritually, using the medium of singing praise and reaching out to others in service of the Lord. We shared a healing Hug, as I was in need of healing too and felt the joy of Thanksgiving. She asked that I continue to pray for her and with her. One of the healing songs on the cd was to the Heart of Divine Mercy. Lisa provided valuable insight to our spiritual conversation on prayer when she said, ". You do not pray for someone, you pray with them George, They must pray too.

There are those who are very ill that need your prayers even more when they are not praying. They need your prayers for their spiritual healing so they can reconcile with the Lord and feel His Love and Forgiveness. I am more interested in reaching out to those who for one reason or another have turned their back on God. Unfortunately they have left at times because of the rigidity of judgemental religious elitists who like the scribes and pharisees in the past who render judgement according to their strict interpretation of Church laws that differ, from the , Love and Truth of the Lord found in the words and teaching of Christ he shared while here on earth in the first place.

Since the introduction of Vatican 2 Changes and The The Holy Spirt inspired efforts of Pope John Paul and Pope Francis They have created a crisis in the Catholic Church by somehow placing themselves above the Vicars of Christ on Earth, The Popes. Their actions are a form of mutiny with no regard for how a house divided will fall.

May All Catholics Pray this Holy Week 04 /14/2014 For enlightment of the Holy Spirt to descend upon all Catholics and All Christians To more closely adhere to the compassionate words of Love and Kindness that Christ Taught us by His actions and Teachings in the Gospels, By His Suffering and Death on the Cross out of Love for us, rather than man's rigid judgmental interpretations that lead to elitist divions among the followers of Christ who are all Brothers and Sisters in Christ who should not be involved in Sibling Rivaly.

"Oh Heart of Divine Mercy Help me to Believe!


Miracles can be yours if you pray , invite other to pray with you, not just for you!



It is my belief, you heal the spirit first by increasing your Intimacy with God. Physical healing will follow when it is God's will.


Monday, Mar 17, 2014 , It is time to bid St. Patrick day adieu.

Another long not unusual day in George Bleich's Life of sharing with others, the joy found in Loving God.

The day started with with an early morning before sunrise consueling session with one of my young renters. My random Bible reading before leaving for church fell by fate on some of my favorite chapters and verses in the Gospel of John which is always a good indication that I would find Joy today in reaching out, loving my Neighbor as Jesus does love us. Singing Joyfully driving to church , "With the dawn Dawn Dawn comes the time to pray to raise your voices heavenward at the start of each new day, in glory and in Praise. Then the joy of receiving Jesus in Communion and the praying of the rosary together with others in the sanctuary where the Tabernacle is for Peace in our hearts, Homes and the world. Then off to see friends in resthomes..

I was blessed by meeting more special people in my recent visits to assisted living, convalescent centers etc, the last couple of weeks who brought me closer to God while I was doing the same for them. I will bring my Guitar and sing to people about the Lord. I will bring my paintings, like the one one above of Jesus and others with Mother Mary holding Baby Jesus to share with the lonely, and those with health problems that comes with maturity, to the ill I know in in hospitals. I find joy in lifting spirits with Prayers at time and other times with humor. If I had a dollar an hour for the time , care and Love I give patients with out charge, I could pay off all that I am behind in mortgage Payments and Penalties, and still have something left over.

Laughter can be uplifting. A good example of that was the positive effect it had on a 82 yearold Army Veteran Friend. who always greets me with a great to see you smile, a fist bump as he can not open the fingers on his hands. George you can't visit with me today, I am in terrible pain everywhere and suffering. Hey Buddy don't worry about it I will say a little prayer for you and come back another day when you are feeling better.

I went about my way singing you are my sunshine with my lyrics changes ,

You will never know how much God Loves You

and the other night dear while I lay sleeping I dreamt that God Held Me in His Arm

When I awakened I was not Mistaken so I lifted My eyes and I smiled.

I had Patients, their visitors and attendents, moving and grooving, singing You are my Sunshine. A Lady went by , moving on briskly in her wheel chair , singing brightly , You are my Sunshine with the New words I taught her a few minutes

A Special from new friend from Tennesee Felt I should meet a Hymn Singing Lady. from Germany who sang hymns constantly.

She felt I should meet her and she was spot on. She showed me the way and asked me to push her wheel chair as it was a long way from where we were. The Hymn Singer came from Germany not too far from where My Grandmother came from near the Polish Border. Like my Grandmother I thought she maybe Polish as she spoke of living in Warsaw Poland. I found out she was all and may have Married a Polish Man. She appeared to have a beautiful deep Faith that is common to old school Christian People across the world. , as she told me she was a Christian when I asked about her Faith. Her Mother sang in a church Choir and was always teaching her daughter to sing hymns which she continues to do to this day...

The Hymn Singer told me how a Smiling Jesus Appeared to her on one occassion. I have no problems believing her.

I do believe I was meant to meet this hymn singing lady Even more so when she told me of a brief smiling Jesus Apparition which I find understandable and believable to have Jesus say thank you to this devout Lady with a smile after many decades and decades of singing Praises to Him.. My feeling is she did see Jesus briefly with a thank you smile. It is not something that needs to be authenticated or treated with religious fervor . Just Enjoy the idea of Jesus saying Thank You with a Smile. May you give Jesus a reason to smile too. I revisited Frauliine Ana. We sang together quietly so as not to disturb the other patient in the room and I suggested humming may be a pleasnt way of expressing your love of Godas I could understand how singing hymns in German will not be every ones cup of Tea

I would not be surprised if sometime I will receive another chance affirmation in some unique way different from the one I and the lady with me at the time bore witness to when I gave one of my Mary Cds to a woman who shared a Mary experience with me which I never doubted. I was once entered her room and was pleased to see her daughter there with her Mom. The the daughter warned me her alzheimer was advanced and she could hardly talked at all, I said she talks with me. The daughter said you have special gift. When The daughter left, I reinforced how special she was to Mary and she commenced to carry on a conversation with me that was flawless. There was a time when she was going to be a nun.

One of the Managers of the facility asked me to report to my Veteran Friend's Room, He wanted to see me.

Shortly after one of the higher up in the chain of Command of the rest home called out to me, The army veteran wants to see you in his room. I went in and after he enjoyed and had a laugh at the story of the Man in the room of a lady all night long, and asked me to play and sing On Top of Old Smokey . I told him you sing the lead and I will play and hum along. He did a great job on it and knew every single verse. He said smiling again with a fist bump, I want to thank you George, My Pain gone and I am feeling great. Laughter helps and so does singing.

My days are long and varied and It is not uncommon for me to be working on My Home page, , creating my art and Music until 3 or 4 in the Morning I generally awake around 6 :45 in the Morning to get ready to go to Church each morning. Sunday night I was visiting in the local hospital and convalescent residences until 8:30 PM. At 78 I am forgetful and even more so when I am tired. I forgot and left two of my paintings in a room with a special friend. a lady whom I visited on a regular basis. She is a special friend with Parkinsons. I first met her years ago when Her husband purchased one of My seacapes for her as Anniversary gift 30 years ago. She asked me if I could remove a couple of the seagulls. Her Husband said You can't ask an artist to do that. I told them it is not a problem, Birds fly in and Birds fly out of my Paintings.

The Living water Prayer

Hail Mary Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed art thou among women and Blessed is the Fruit of thy womb Jesus,

Holy Mary Mother of God, Pray for us Your Children ,

while we stand beneath the Living water, Having Bodies and Souls bathed and Purified by the Holy Spirit's Grace.

Then with open Hearts May we Joyfully accept the power and Glory of God's Perfect Healing Love.

Heal thy brethren Lord if it be Thy Holy Will.

I visited Bill a good man who is a Deacon at the Mission and Spiritual advisor for the Legion of Mary Had more work to do serving God and recovered for the second time from the effects of an operative infection. He was my neighbor and when I noticed His Lights off , I grew concerned and tried with out cooperation from the church to find out any information or the numbers of one of his a close active church member friends. I felt he was back in the Hospital I went and found hiim there. I did bring the Living water Painting in to share with him as I have done for others and still do praying the above prayer.


Sharing by Living by, the Gospels and 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 Purified by the Holy Spirit's Grace. Then with open Hearts may we joyfully 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 Allan Wolters 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.

Cathedral of St. Charles, Bartholomew Monterey, Stations Of the Cross, Every Friday during Lent at 11:30 AM

The church was filled with People of all Ages from Grandparents to young Children and more than one pregnant woman. There was a wonderful spiritual presence of God Present in those conducting the Way of the Cross and those Participating. Each Station along the way opened our minds to understand Christ Love and Sacrifce more deeply. The Precious Stabat Mater in Enlish opened the flood gate of Compassion for Mother Mary and her experience the Mother's love and Pain she felt for Her Sacred Son, Jesus.

Friday, March 14, I returned to the Cathedral in Monterey for the Stations of the Cross after Adorationat St Angelas Merci which ended at 10 AM.

It was like the first time but better,

March 07 , I met one of the Knights of Columbus Members who help lead the Way of the Cross. A few weeks ago He was in the hospital in a hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber with a Staph infection. He did infer that he was close to death. He may have come close to crossing over, knocking at Heaven's Gates . God Had different path for this younger Middle age man. He had work for him to do, to continue serving God and man as an Active Member of the Most Highly Respected for Good Reasons Catholic Men Organization, The Knights of Columbus.

I told Him that I have met a number of People,friend who were suppose to die , But God keeps them here to continue to do His work, Reaching out to others with His Love and Forgivenes. I thought of with a smile how he has kept me here to reach out and help others and exerience pain for penance. I wll at time ask that he take away some one else Pain by transferring it to me. One of my new friends had a serious problem I was aware of in her Right Hand, I don'tknow if it did her any good but did have pain in the same area. When you have experienced pain you will know compassion for others in Pain. Working on my new Painting of Christ found me in some serious pain. My Morning Alieve Pain Pill had worn off long ago and the walking in rest homes and a visit with a patient in a hospital it in the hospital was raising havoc with both my dislocated metarsal bone and my chronic Heel pain had me feeling like Longefellow's "Wreck of the Hesperus on Norman Woe. The pain was intense. I offered it up for Lent. My last extended painting session of Christ Painting I did in my reliner with the painting on my lap. I a received notice to Schedule two appointment at VA hospital in Palo Alto for both my leg and the cancer preventive treatment I had on my face when I looked red as a boiled new England lobster from the treatment. Two evening in a row doing Home page writing until 3:30 AM wo

Friday Lenten Service at St.Angelas, 6 PM Followed By Community Sharing of Soup and Bread.at 6:30 in Parish Hall

Father Seamus Lenten Talk was like His Sermons, Rich, Deep Faith Sermons That Irish Priests and Ministers are superb in their sincere Delivery Of God's Messsage of Love and caring. It was not as well attended as the Station s of The Cross at the Monterey Cathedral or the former Stations of the Cross St. Angelas use to have at 3 PM. That could very well have to do with the time it was held. They had a great array of different soups and Bread etc. When the Gourmet News get out it may attract more Participators, But Then again St.Angelas has a cadre of excellent cooks, Bakers etc who provide sumptous main plates and deserts That led me to comment to a priest in the past, if only we fed our souls as well as we feed our Faces. I had one bowl of a wonderful Asian Seafood chowder which was more then sufficient as I still had to cook dinner for my Son. I was fortunate to be ata table where one couple was from the Mideast and another couple were experienced world travelers like myself which was enlightening and energized the conversation. An Other visiting lady involved in the art was also a delight.

This is a beautiful song That always had a special significance to me as a way of living my life. It will bring tears of Joy when you answer the call with , Here I am Lord! May you become more aware of God has blessed you all with His Love and Forgiveness . May you find the joy found in Loving God and Your Neighbor as Jesus loves you. Share His Love with All.

"Here I AM Lord"

My Spiritual Journal, High Lights,

Friday, March 8. Father Seamus during Morning Mass, always ask for intentions from the people present that we all can pray for together.

My Intention that we prayed for was that more people would attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after this Mass and Thanks be to God they did.

I know with any doubt the many Eucharistic Ministers we have at St.Angelas would gain a far deeper personal insight to Christ's Presence in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist that they bring to the infirmed. Adoration would help other church members realize that God is here in the interior of St. Angelas church in a real special way at all times in the Tabernacle not just at Mass, that calls for respectful reverence.

After Adoration, while the Blessed Sacrament was being put away, a suggested image of a Mother & Child

and a face to the right of them on the interior of the Tabernacle had me wondering, Was it a bad idea of stopping taking videos at the closing prayers of the interior of the Tabernacle when they put the Host Back in the Tabernacle. There was once a very distinct image of a face. I asked Father Seamus , "Whose Face would you expect to see in a Tabernacle? " I thought that I could do a painting study or sketch of the images I percieved. There were 2 other note worthy image suggestions. I will do these 3 as Part of my Lenten Exercise and more than likely I will write a new spiritual song while doing them. The feeling just came to me I should ask one of my new friends in one of the convalescent facilities to help me. She plays piano & guitar and I believe there are people you meet not by chance but by God's design.

The first image suggested a Man holding a circular light up in His Right Hand that to me was the Blessed Sacrament. On another Friday it was a of a Mother and Child. I made a quick study sketch of the the 3 different Friday suggestions of images in the Tabernacle in the Church Library before I left for the Monterey Cathedral for the Stations of the Cross at 11 AM.

I was fortunate to be ata table where one couple was from the Mideast and another couple were experienced world travelers like myself which was enlightening and energized the conversation. An Other visiting lady involved in the art was also a delight.

Back to March First Sunday, it was another long wonderful day where my visits with some very special beautiful people lit up our lives with joy. I sang along and did a video of some vibrant energetic Baptist Gospel Singers at One rest home that I would share with other there and with others at another rest home. It had a very special ending for 2 residents. One administered a caring loving outreach to another which seems to be the Hallmark of the residents at Carmel Hills. We had a new resident Lucile, dining at the community dining table. She was very quiet and reserved and looked at her food but was not touching it. while other were enjoying their dinner. I went to her side, placed my arm gently on her back in a reassuring caring manner of an old friend, and assisted Lucille with her dinner as her special diet of soft ground food was not as attractive or as appetizing as the Broiled Chicken on a large soft roll with French fries . I can attest to par excellence of the dinner as Beverly share a portion

with me.

By the time I fed Lucille a fair amount of food, all the food she cared to have ,sometime using the airplane approach that I use to do with my kids, all the other patients had left but Beverly, a special close friend of mine. Lucille who I was helping, started talking to Beverly, my friend, a very caring resident who has the pulsebeat and knowledge of the broad array of the situations of most of the others insuring if they needed help she will get it for them.

Lucille, now Beverly's new friend had the soft caring voice of an angel and spoke to her slowly and caringly of Beverly's problems. Some how it was profound. I could not help but feel Lucy in the Sky with diamond present in our hearts. Lucy who recently passed away was Beverly's room mate whose daughter would be there faithfully every evening assisting her mom to eat as I was doing with Lucille. I could sense a peaceful joyfilled change come over Beverly that I could feel. The gentle soft tranmission of one caring soul and the the thankful reception of the other was special. The three of us or four of us all brought different facets of positve energy to the table of plenty.

We 3, then two all shared a special heart felt moment that was to continued after I bid the two or more of them adieu as it was almost 7 PM and I was weary as I had less than 3 hours of sleep the night before and I still had to prepare dinner for my son Jon and I.

Somehow my Sunday visits to Rest Homes are more special. Sharing the Lord on His Special day.

The rapport was wonderful again this Sunday Feb 24, 2014. I shared the Stone foot that I found on the painting trip around the world in 1997 while free diving in the Gulf of Aqaba connected with the Red Sea. I wondered if that area had any specific religious connection. It was like WOW when Ifound out that Bible archaeological scholars believed that this was the general area of the partings of the sea in Exodus.

Stone Foot's Red Sea Prophecy for me.

Pain will bring you closer to God.

While bedridden that happened!

I shared the Red Sea Stone Foot with others after bringing it into the Sanctuary in the same way that I would bring roses and also the crosses I made, asking God to bless them and the People I would share with. I did that first with good friends in Church who found the Stone fascinating. I was pleasantly surprised by what two devout, faithful and respected church lady shared with me when I showed them the stone foot. Clair who is over 90 years old and Norma both very devout and respected church members found a suggestion of Mary as did one of my artist Lady friends in one of the rest homes who is not into religion.

I continued to do that in 3 rest homes. I have some very special close to God Friends in Church and in the Rest Homes. Its 3:57 AM Monday Morning and I am in the process of putting the Youtube, Video on my Home page. I started it after my rest Home visits around 5PM.

I know with out a doubt that I have been called to serve him. At times it is too serve the homeless, ill and infirmed. At times it is time to use my creativity in my Prayer Paintings, New Songs or sharing My Mission Statement promoting Christ Commands of Love, His new Command ,John 13/34 and the Golden Rule. I am a strong advocate of intercession through Mary via the Rosary for Peace through Jesus in the world.

My travels and experiences in places around the world are now affirmation as I acquire more Historical knowledge and find deeper connections with some Biblical scholarly references.

A Life Changing Prophecy set in Stone from an area of biblical importence, Was it an Antiquity sculpted by Man or a stone carved by time and nature.

"Pyramids", I wrote this song , gazing at the Great Pyramids, from my Cairo hotel window.

.

Recalling earlier that day My sons and I riding camels across the desert to the Great Pyramids and climbing a smaller pyramid. This song is Dedicated with the affection of the whole Choir to a departing young Navy officer, choir member Patty, who is departing for the Mid-East. Patty a Beautiful woman on the outside with a beautiful soul on the inside that you can see clearly in her eyes is returning to Egypt where she once in a former life reigned as Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile.

"Cleopatra's Barge on the Nile"

24 by 36, $4900 to be divided up into 3 equal shares of the amount of $1633.33 as My 2 sons Jonathan and Christopher and I started this along the Banks of the Nile I remember on our Paintng trip around the world with Jon, age 7 & Chris, age 20, 2 of my 3 sons in 1997, staying in Petra Jordan. We then drove from Petra the Rose city where they filmed the Last Crusade of Indiana Jones Movie.


We explored the same hot desert that Moses wandered through and continued to the Gulf Aqaba. While cooling off by swimming in the Gulf of Aqabel, I free dived in the sea and came up from beneath the sea with a marble like stone sculpture of a narrow graceful foot.


I wondered if it was an ancient artifac sculpted by man or a stone sculpted by Nature. The stone foot had a deep indentation in the heel in the same area that I would 7 or 8 year later have a serious wound problem in my heel as a result of improper post operative care after a successful hip replacement. I was laid up in danger of amputating my leg due to Narcrotic Tissue, an area of Dead Flesh created when my circulation was shut off by compression hose that were too tight, put on before the operation and were never check daily as they should have been. They went unchecked for close to a week.

I often wondered if anything of Spiritual signifcance happened in that area and I would find out Feb. 8, 2014, when I added Bible to Gulf of Aqaba while seeking information . The Gulf of Aqaba was where Bible scholar believed Moses Parted the Red Sea in Exodus.

To a Man with a Jewish heritage on my Fathers side who in the past had interesting reasons to wondered if He may be from the House of David whose off springs are many. We are a family that include Protestant Pastors,a number of Jewish Rabbi, Creative artists in different mediums, musicians all inspired by an array of Mystical and Religious writing from the Kabala to the Bible. Ancient and contemporary writings of Sages and Prophets,and holy Men of Eastern and Western Religions.and religious directionwih a spiritual , Rabis rabies array of, could see finding a stone foot sculpture that would forcast health problems that would lay me low and bring me into a deeper relationship with the Lord while bedridden in pain. When you are gifted with Faith,There is a silver lining behind every dark cloud that darken your life. My lack of mobility was a blessing in disguise. It became a time of deep contemplation that brought me closer to God.

Last Sunday Feb.16, was my day to Share the Love of God, Peace inspired words and the Beauty of Mary in My Queen of Peace, Rainbow Mother Mary Painting with the Infirmed.

I did this in a private residence and 3 different Rest Homes for over 8 Hours starting after singing at the 10 O clock mass with the choir. The Patients and I prayed then sang, My religious version of You are My Sunshine and the "Ave Maria" I composed while doing the 3 by 5 foot painting of Mary. Humor is part of the medicine I bring them that brings smiles and laughter, lifting each others spirits.

It was once again a special joyful time of sharing the Good News of Christ Love and Forgiveness and the potential power of prayer when 2 or more are gathered in his presence in praise. Patients have shared with me the Peace and happy feeling they have in my company. That is but a mirror of the joy I find with them.

With most I would led them in the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be to God Prayers followed by my Come into my heart O Lord, Make my Heart your Home Prayer. With Parkinson's Patients I would teach them the Breathe in Jesus Meditation Prayer. We discussed Bible Passages that often they would be more versed in then I. The Importance of Mary being the Mother of Christ is often a conversation I initiate.I relate that to All Mothers deserve the Love and respect of their children. Fanny one of my friends has an angel of a son Named Gabriel who is a loving caring son and a wonderful Eample

I introduced a good friend and patient Ruben Baez to an other good friend with Parkinsons that I would pray with and for in the past when I first started praying with Ruben. I liked him because My Brother in Christ was a Military man whom I respected as a soldier whom I was called to reach out with God's Love in his hour of need. I thought by his bearing he was an officer but did not know he was went up through the ranks and became a three Star General. I just found that out this Tuesday while visiting him Feb.25. My friend had returned for therapy and will be returning home in the next the next couple of days.

I encourage the patients to pray with each other and visit other when they are mobile. Ruben would accompany me while visiting Other patients to be inspired by Ruben's Love and Tust in God and the improvements on a Miracle scale of 9 which is Divine.

I sang other songs & my Ave Maria Sunday while sharing my 3 by 5 foot " Queen of Peace, Rainbow Mother Mary" Painting with patients I visited Sunday Feb. 16. My right foot and leg gave me no problems after or during my over 8 Hour visiting Patients.

I worked on my homepage Sunday night until 4 AM Monday morning and was up at 6 :45 to go to communion Service and to lead the Rosary. Later in the day I would bring 7 of my large Prints in rooms of Patients that I spent time with on Sunday. They all would be inscribed to them Personally, With different Messages of Hope and Trust in God.I would attach a cut out of Jesus Heart of Divine Mercy that would make Them Think of Jesus's Heart of Divine Mercy that I encourage them to direct their prayers for healing when it is God's Will. Example #One at the end of The Path "Beyond Moongate," #Two, Jesus by the seashore at the end of a Coastal path along the 17 Mile drive at "Sundown at Cypress Point." #Three Jesus walking on the Water In My Dawn along the River Seine", in France. #Four, In Yosemite Vally in My Return to "Heaven's Gate"

God is present in Yosemite in a Special way!

When I was Artist in Residence in The Studio of the Great American Landscape Painter Thomas Hill in Wawona, Yosemite for the entire summer of 1979

A Man working on a Doctorate was writing His Thesis on Creative People in the National park interviewed me. I told Him God was present in Yosemite Valley in a special way! He said "No He is not present in Yosemite." I told Him He was interviewing Me, If you want to write about yourself, don't waste my time!

I am not a pantheist though I am very aware of God's presence in Nature and in Yosemite, which when it comes to God's Creations is one of God's great Master Pieces! Yosemite's majestic towering canyon walls enfolded the valley forming nature's Cathedral. Sunrays create Crystal Rainbows Stain glass windows in the mist of the thundering Falls whose strong deep Bass Notes complimented the choir of the singing revebrating Merced river. Rythmns,rolling over and under the river rocks, percussions in a varied symphony of polyphonic sounds.

Back to Sunday and the work of art that patients responded to with love.

Youtube Reach For the Cross, Christ's Cross of Love. When Temptation Beckons You to the Dark Side of the Word. was created , Feb 14, Valentine's Day.

The video is on Jesus's Love for us and how He commands us to love God His Father God most of all all, then Our fellow man as Jesus loves you. happy Moments in video were in the photos when My Son Chris placed a special beautiful Luminous Cross painted Pearl Turquiose Blue, And Blue green gold That I wore while praying until I could give it to my 4 year old Grand Child Kia Bella to to keep her safe in God's Care & help her with her health problems.

This concept of reaching for Christ Cross of Love could help you and others. I have used everthing from Chopsticks to Rose Branches, even sticks used to stir coffee held in place by rubber bands. There are many creative and simple ways to make the crosses instantly with out tools.

Be creative for God and use your own talent to share your love of Jesus. Make them for yourself and others to find strength to say no to temptation when it beckon you & others to the dark side of the World of addiction and other common accepted habits like over eating and smoking that you would like to control.

I will start this section off out of my neccessity with 2 Videos of 4 by 5 foot Major Master works of Lake Como Blue, Italy and Monet's Pond, Giverny, France.

They are an excellent investment values @ 11000.This allows for a finders fee of $1000 for the person who may be instrumental in the purchase...( I did have one man pick up an easy $500 that came in Handy for himn If your wife talks you into it she get the Thousnd Dollars and can take you out to The Fine French or Italian restaurant of your choice depending on the family Preference of Lake Como and Italy or Giverny and France. I have done this in the past for collector of my work who really enjoyed and love their Bleich Paintings that have graced their home with the beauty and serenity of My landsacpes and Garden scenes. Some also had in addition the Power and Glory of My Seascapes . All they need now for a Bleich Trilogy is one of my Spiritual works. A great number of my works have been sold as a result of Neighbors and friends experiencing them in other friends homes. They enjoyed the full range of harmonious color and unique luminosity, often under control lighting. There are many individual who loved my work in their own collections and know friends who would appreciate an opportunity to acquire a Major Bleich Masterwork for themselves at a very significant investor value.

My focus has been on my spiritual Journey of Loving God and sharing His comforting Words of Love & Forgiveness.

Many are in Need of Comforting Prayers, Hope and Understanding, Converations intermingled with humor and Listening to them with patience and undersdtanding. In Hospitals, rest homes and residents. I do this without charge and I do incur expenses that I cover myself.

I used to be comparatively wealthy and thought nothing of Buying My wife a new car for her Birthday.Paying for it in full.

Now I am more concerned with buying gas for my car to continue my work, pay for the many cds and ink for images I bring the ill. When I put up one of my 4 by 5 foot painting at these prices I am concerned but not stressed about forclosure on my home. I am quite laid back about it as God does seem to provide for me. I did lose my time shares but I could not use them anyway due to mobility problems i the past.

4 by 5 feet $11000 not $38000 for this sale Lake Como Blue,Italy

Dawn of a New Day, $ 7000 instead of $14000

A Thank You God Painting I worked on for many months offering up the efforts in this painting of the Lone Cypress Tree as a prayer of Thanksgiving and a Prayer for my friends in need. Ruben Baez is another one of these friends where Thank You God is now exclaimed with joy! .

I was composing a song by the same name, as the melody and lyric Changed so would the concept and mood evolve in the Painting. I painted this same Lone Cypress Painting over and over again portraying different days and seasons, different waves, different Clouds and qualities of Light in sequence to the evolvement of the concept of this painting.

I finally put the final touches on this Special Thank you God Prayer Painting for answering My Prior Prayer Songs, Videos and Prayer paintings that become an unique forms of creative praises and prayers for healings, successful organ Transplants etc. I never have concentrated so much effort in one of my Lone Cypress Tree Paintings, in articulation and accuracy as in this one. I feel it is special in many ways but especially in in the positive result for my friends I have been Praying with and for God's Help with their health problems.

My Spiritual Work with the ill and infirmed in rest homes and regular homes, that I love doing also has take a temporary toll.

I walked many extra miles down the halls of a hospital, rest homes and regular homes sharing the 30 by 36 inch Painting , the Eyes of Mary Painting which was heavy because it was on masonite All the walking took a toll on my right leg and foot, On the circulation on my right leg both the chronic Heel and dislocated bone in the metatarsal area. My arms cramped up when I returned home after 5 to 7 hours carrying the Painting in Front of me for hours.

Perhaps it was just God hearing my prayers to transfer the pain of those I pray for to my own body. This is a variation of when I would pray that God would take me instead of the individual I was praying for who may be was knocking at death door. After so many years of experiencing Pain, I have cultivated the ability to handle pain with out over indulging in Pain relief pills. Because I am no stranger to pain I have developed a tolerance for pain and a deeper understanding and compassion for those in pain.

Current Circulatory problems in my right leg and other areas, an arterial inflamation in my right temple, minor chest pains as I wore a heart monitor in the past will sometimes have me asking my self. " If I were to die tomorrow what would I want to accomplish today." Then I set out to accomplish that goal.

( insert update, Sunday I felt better all around, I started the day lifting 25 lbs dumbell doing more repetions in a curl press exercise I taught a 26 yearold renter the Night before. He works in construction, lifts weights and exercises. He did 20 Saturday night, I did 22 Sunday Morning after my shower. My Leg and footpain has been minimal ,to a point of not having any pain, No chest Pains, having me think. Mother Mary is Helping me again.

Early last week when my Jewish Mystic friend took out to lunch after I took her to do her errands we discussed How God's keeps you here longer when you serve Him by serving others as we both do that. She was released from the Hospital 4 years ago to die as they deemed her terminal and she was dying. We joked about how 4 years ago she said I was not safe to drive with and I found it amusing that a terminal ill person would say that. I may have scared the death out of her. She would say George I believe you have something to do with me being alive today. I would tell her He is keeping her here to continue to do her good work and is keeping me here to do penance for my sins I did in life before and my continuing off the wall humor that I still do.

I developed my closer relationship with God when I perused the New Testament section of the Bible, in daily Random Readings. They were somehow more personal answers to my questions to God pertaining to my ongoing activities that day. I would do this before I left home for Daily Mass and Communion and to lead the start of the Rosary for peace in our hearts, homes & families, churches and the world. I more fully understood God's Love and Forgivenss by taken to Heart the words of Love and Peace that Christ spoke while here on Earth.

God is my Auto Pilot, The spirit moves me where I should go and what I should do.

I sometime think when it is especially painful to walk that God wants me to direct my energies in other positive creative directions serving Him. He may limit my mobility and have me spend more time in my studio, Painting , Writing Composing and Reaching out, communicating with my spiritual themes to more people through my creative efforts. on line, in the social media. Facebook, Youtubes etc. Sometime I feel He has me focus on how to meet my financial needs which I have put on the back burner.

My calling seems to be directing me to use my creativity to reach out to People on an International level once again to share God's Message of Love and Forgiveness found and affirmed in the New Testament, in the words Christ spoke while here on earth. I am moved by the Spirt of God's Love, to addressing honestly and simply the Problems confronting people at home and through out the world, encouraging their compassion, Peace and Love for one another. I have been doing this for years influenced by my mentor St. Francis and my calling to share Christ Commands of Love especially the new Command , John Chapter 13 verse 34. You will find them interwoven in my songs, My Art , my singing and my Heart. My Dad who was Missing In Action in his 30 ies always did his part, was always smiling too. People with God in their heart, can't hide the joy, They share it by their very being with out wearing it on their sleeve. Their smile told everyone, They believe!

"Man in Black"

This was part of a triad of songs that part of a New Years Resolution in 2002, to use my creativity for Peace in the world. They were written along with "Here and Now". Curse of Cain, as Man in Black as a singing prayer while working on a prayer Painting " Man in Black", a Painting of Jesus Christ called Prince of Peace. I gave to a Priest from Africa for St Patricks Church in Africa. These creative efforts were offered up as a prayer, praying for Peace in the Mid- East and the world. They along with "Children of Abraham" are rededicated all Peace efforts in the Mid-East and the world. What started as a New Years Resolution before the Iraq war has evolved into dedicating the rest of my life to be an active creative voice for peace, Understanding and Justice in the world. May the Common Goals of Understanding , Peace and Justice be assured through Mutual Respect , Unity and Strength. ( A quote I transcribed in all the NATO languages on MY Point Lobos Remarqued Prints and Posters Prints for all the attendees at a major NATO Conference In Monterey. It was a gift in Memory of my Dad. May we all be Blessed by the One God we all worship and Honor though we may know Him by different Names, He is one and the same.

3 Major Religions have something in common . All 3 are Children of Abraham

They believe in one God, The same God that guided Abraham . I have among my callings is to be a peacemaker for the children of Abraham. Now that is a challenge! I have in the past and am continuing to pay a price for being a Peacemaker in America, in a world where the powerful in control will Misuse Patriotism and Religion to influence and control others to further advance their own political agenda that has more to do with their wealth then the Good of all Americans or Citizens of other countries that seek to influence or control. When it comes to war the poor in every country in the world become cannon fodder and bear far more of the pain and suffering.

"Children of Abraham"

is a song about prayers for peace in the world, with the emphasis on The offspring of Abraham. This song is dedicated to the Secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Annan. I sent him a cd along with My Message to Humanity to share with those interested in peace in the Mid-East who have representatives to the United Nation." I also included a bank check for $1100 for the UN children's AIDs fund to fulfill an old obligation I assummed to do something in support of those with AIDS. There was an excellent National Geographic Story in the December issue, 'Abraham Father of three faiths'. It is my intent and resolution for the New Year, 2002, to continue to be a creative voice for peace and justice in the world. One of the great strengths of America is how we are the positive sum total of ethnic and religious groups who settled in America from throughout the world. When I first started this song I was discouraged by the state of world affairs. The longer I worked on it as a prayer offering, the more hope I felt about peace being attainable in the Mid-East and the world. It is not just a matter of giving Peace a chance but never giving into the despair of war. Jan. 24, 2002 was Pope John Paul's second day of united prayers of Peace Day in Assisi. Pope Francis did the same in Rome. Peace day is a day we can be in spirit with the spirit of the prayers being offered up at Assisi for Peace by the Pope and other Religious Leaders, all Children of Abraham who pray together to One God for peace in our hearts and the world...THe King of Saudi Arabia once held an International Peace conference in Saudi Arabia with the intent of peace among the Children of Abraham.d In the spirituality section there is a story of my experiences at Assisi and the peace song 3 white doves that I started there describing the experience.

"Curse of Cain"

. Go to the Bible, Genesis, chapter 4, verse 15 Cain and Abel and give me your opinion of what Yahweh, God had in mind when he put the mark of Cain on Cain. God said Cain would be protected as any one who dared harmed him would have sevenfold more suffering as a result. It almost appears as if that is happening in today's world. There seem to be a continuation of too many Cains killing Ables. I wonder if the circle of hate moves faster because it is going down hill to hell. Perhaps the circle of love is on a horizontal plane and rays out from a center location and doesn't move that fast in comparison. Or if we are pushing the circle of love uphill, It takes more honest effort and sacrifice. The story about Cain and Abel is in the Bible and Koran. In the song I have a line "The death angel you wish on others will visit you instead."

God Save the Children"

God Reach down to the innocents with your loving arms
Shelter them within the wings of angels, keep them safe from harm
O Lord please save the children, Spare them the heartbreak of war
Spare them the sorrow, that will be theirs tomorrow
Borne on eagle wings of war. God save the children.

Through out history, Men driven by deceit and greed, war and the vain misuse of power succeed in having children pay the cost of war with their lives, loss of love ones and their tears. It is not just the children of Iraq that feel the pain and loss It will be the children of our service men and women who will share the terrible cost and loss from a war that need not be!. The pain never really goes away and no amount of Patriotic fervor and welcoming home our heroes who returned home safely will cushion the reality of their loss and pain. In among the Iraq war news they had a video clip of children in Palestine throwing stones at a tank threatening the neighborhood they lived. These children relative to the tank are the fragile children of stone in the song.

The time has come to use these stones not as weapons but stones to build a peace memorial to the children and young people on both sides who paid the price for violence and hate. It is a time to build a new Free State of Palestine THat President Bush is working on. where people can realize the joys of life found in more peaceful Cities and Countries in the world and live in peace with Israel. The same holds true in Israel. It is time for fresh new voices to be heard on both sides. It is a time to reject the circle of violence and spokes of hate. May we all enter into the Endless Circle of God's Love and Peace. Though we Know him by different names, He is one and the same.

I recall when I was younger than a teenager I wanted to be a Missionary and go to do Missionary work in Russia. I enjoyed gong to early Mass before school by myself of my own

volition I was also an Altar boy at a very young age. My Uncle Joe use to go to a Russian Orthodox Church in Glen Cove L.I., N.Y. My Mother use to sail to Russia and bring me art books from Pushin and Hermitage Museums. I liked their folk Music and Dancing. I enjoy People of all Nationalities

I now feel that My Word Paintings Homilies can do that Missionary work for me in any part of the world. My Art work, Songs and writings reflect an enlightened objective approach to seeking and speaking the truth of Christ's teachings and having respects for all other religions that reach for peace in this world. I feel a spiritual bond exist between with all good men and women who walk in the way of God's Love,Truth and Peace.

I personally find the words that Jesus spoke while here on earth of utmost importance in leading my life, doing the will of His Father, Parting the clouds of stife with His Truth ,Love and Light...

"Shadow Angel" If you were ever in deep pain alone at night you will know and feel this song.

I was in terrible pain after a hip replacement. Improper post operative lack of care, Not checking compression hose that were too small to begin with cut off my circulation for close to a week,creating a large area of narcrotic tissue and very painful internal infection on the top of the bridge of the foot.

The Power was out for a couple of days and my only heat was from a Jesus votive candle whose flickering light cast a shadow of an angel dancing on my Bedroom wall. the angel was feeling blue in need of a friend, but a sinner man won't do. She still danced for me the whole sleepless pain filled night until she left with the light of day.

Being bed ridden for an extended period of timeIt was a life changing experience that drew me closer and closer to God through prayer and spiritual meditation to listen and hear his voice with in " my heart. Then I would echo His words and message through songs I would compose laid up in bed, Playing a roll up piano, Like, " Climbing the Stairway to Heaven." Then there was the time when Our power was off for days, I was cold and in Pain.The only light that was present in my Bedroom was a votive Christ Candle whose flickering Light cast a shadow angel dancing on my bedroom wall. I was very ill. I had my old black acoustic guitar by my bed, I reached for it and gently plucked the strings and sang almost in whisper, shrivering with pain, Finding relief with Singing to my Shadow Angel friend, Dancing on my bedroom wall.

"Shadow Angel"

The following evening I tried sleeping on the recliner in the living room as I have been experiencing difficulty making my self comfortable in bed as there are positions to avoid after hip surgery and I also had to keep my heel ( Severe Necrosis of the heel, post operative care problem) off the bed or from contact with any thing.

It did not work I awoke in pain with tightening of muscles on the inside of groin area and on the outside of buttocks where they made incision. I went to bed and had my son Eric cover me and bring me the vicodin that I did not take for a few days as it is a narcotic and can be habit forming. I also asked to have the nitro pills near as I was having some light chest pains. He lit the votive candle and this time the shadow was more clearly like a Pieta image set in the lower portion of a defined circle of light.

Experiences with Circles of Light, Circle of Love

It reminded me of what my mom said 3 days before she died that she was surrounded by a circle of love.

It also reminded me of an experience in the past That I had while ill with a high fever that was a result of pneumonia. A close friend Francis Boyd came to my rescue and took me to the hospital.

While lying in my bed it was like the ceiling was a vault that opened up to a very bright light and I could feel myself being drawn up into the circle of light. I stopped my ascent came back when A friend Frank Boyd came to my Apartment found me in bed with a very high fever and brought me to the Hospital.

I was hardly conscious with very high fever and I recall I may have had pneumonia and other complications relating to it. I was slipping away into a circle of light which may have been the entry way to the other side. when He carried me to his car and brought me to the hospital. He saved my life according to the Doctors I spoke to later in recovery.

This was different in a subtle beautiful way. The circle of light that was formed by the votive candle of Christ That my nephew John D gave me was soft gentle light , yet had a sense of infinity that went well beyond the ceiling wall. It was like looking into deep space that was accentuated by sparkles created by the candles flickering light. It reminded me of twinkle of stars against the softly illumined circle of light on the ceiling cast by the candle. I was not conscious of the confines of the wall and ceiling. .It was a distant warm soft light punctuated by tiny notes of purer colors that appeared to be at different distances in space.

The shadowy figure that suggested the Pieta figure of Mary and Christ bore hues like the angel the night before, hints of lavender, shades of blue gray. The darker sections of the ceiling that contained the circle of light would be punctuated by a burst of an arcs of brighter lights and color notes cast by the flickering flame of candle. It was subtle and beautiful. I am contemplating a modern painting based on the experience.

I was listening to my Spirituals on a portable CD player with earphones that enhanced the experience of spiritual meditation coupled with the physical shadow and light images on the wall.. I was playing My Mother Mary’s Blue CD with a song of the same name and others like; “We all have a Heavenly Mother” ; “All Mothers are Madonna's” and the Hail Mary and other song I wrote for my Mom while care giving her, have been a wonderful source of pain relief and have brought me inner peace.

While listening to these songsI would have a heightened awareness of the pain Mary experienced watching the sufferings of her Son Jesus and also an awareness of how our sins brought Christ pain. A river of tears would flow silently from the outward corners of my eyes, streaming down my cheeks. The tears would continue to flow until I drifted off into sleep.

The memory of the experience was one of deep love and pain.

I was conscious of my own physical pain but it seemed minimized by the emotional depth of what I regard as a spiritual and soul cleansing experience.

Artist tend to hone their sensitivity so their emotional intensity lies closer to the surface of their being. It is one of God’s special gifts that drives their feeling, creativity and lives. When I feel pain I am one is more conscious of the greater pain that others go through. When I was told I might lose my 70 year old foot it seem minor compared to young men and women, who lost their arms or legs as so many of our Veterans have in Iraq.

"Times in Each one’s life"

I thought I was going to die from the complications of a MRSA Staph infection that I picked up at the Hospital a couple of years later while be treated for the original deep wound in my heel.

The Closer you are to Death, the closer you are to God and Your own Judgement day, your own End Time!

I entered that spiritual space and never left it. I was to feel that the stone foot I found was prophetic of my physical problems and a wonderful growing closeness to God.

Experiences of being Protected and seeing what happens to those who may regard me as their Enemies because of differences in Politics or Religion.. If you love your enemies you have no enemies but they have you. What will happen to them will leave them asking, Why is this happening to Me? Those who would move me out of their sphere of influence may find themselves or those who are close to them removed.

I now know He has called me to do His Holy Will and I am doing it. I also seem to be protected from those who would harm me or create difficulties for me to do what I feel is my response to answering God's call.

Jewish Heritage, Possible House of David

I also have a Jewish Heritage and felt our family on my Father side may somehow have a possible heritage relationship with the House of David. There are a great number of Jewish people who have that connection. My Family on my Father's side may well be among them. Doubters could say with good reason that is just spiritual vanity. Yet there are times and unique spiritual experiences including apparitions, minor miracles to my own body and at times to others when it is His Holy will. I know my creativity is God directed by the Holy Spirit and at times I will feel what I write on a spiritual level is beyond my natural ability and feel I am not writing but am inscribing what I am directed to write. I have experienced the same thing while painting at times. It is like I am an observer and watch while my brush strokes move in a manner that is not common to my regular brush strokes. It is as if someone else is doing the painting. beyondhave been times when somehow

<2H>Favorite, Psalm 23

The Psalms were special to me, especially, Psalm 23. In some ways following Psalm 23 I feel like I am a good shepherd caring and loving patients who are my friends and are lambs in my care. I find real joy when someone who has drifted away from God because of bad experiences in Churches or numerous other reasons comes back to God they knew as a child but left behind.

Protected and Provided

I seem to be protected and have no fear for God who is my Good shepherd protects me and Provides for my needs. He has gifted me with talents that I return to him in Creative Praises for Him. He has gifted me with spiritual gifts of miracles to myself and others who I pray with and for when it is His Holy Will, I have spiritual gifts of discernment that increases my joy when with special people of all Faiths who greatly love God.We energise eacch other!

I know at when People will soon be crossing over to the other side and at other time I have felt the exact time they died leaving this life for the next even though they were over a hundred miles away. I have also known who at times. I went to a local hospital looking for a friend and her husband as images showed Oralee by Samuel his bed side comforting Sam, praying for him. I did not find the Garcias at the local Hospital. They were at VA Hospital in Palo Alto. Oralee was by Samuel's side while he was leaving for the Kingdom of God's Love.

In my Palliative care capacity I feel like a Gate keeper there to welcome every one in to the kingdom of God's Love. My 3 painting in print, Heaven's Gate, Return to Heavengate and Beyond Moongate reflect tat sensibility.

I am called to Pray for and address the complexities and problems that exist in the world today especially ones that involve the children of Abraham in acts of hatred and violence, the violence among the Children of Abraham. I am out spoken about any form of discrimination toward any ethnic Group, Color , Religion or life style that could lead to hatred or harm to others any where I find it including churches...

I carried My New Queen of Peace Painting , Eyes of Mary to Rest Homes, Private Residents and the Local Hospital and shared this New Song with those who were Ill

It is My Hope that someone or a family would purchase this Painting of Living Water to give to a church as a Memorial to a special loved one who is now with the Lord. I may have been thinking of how we never know when our time to cross over is drawing nigh. God decides when or time has come. He takes the young and old of every age. Sometimes people will be exhausted and seeking rest in Christ's arms. . I feel it could be a wonderful uplifting Spiritual visual symbol hung above or near a Baptisimal Font. Our Lady Star of the Sea in Santa Cruz and a Church in Watsonville have a front entry way Baptismal Font with an organ loft above where the painting could be hung.

The $7000 cost would help me to continue my calling to share God's Love every where but especially in Rest Homes and Hospitals. Perhaps that is where the painting is meant to be, sharing it's love beauty and positive Spiritual energy. My Primary focus for quite a while as been on my Spiritual work, being a disciple, inviting all in to the Kingdom of God's love. doing what I know is God's will and not on ` wealth and material things which I did sucessfully in the past. I have flown to Europe a couple times a year to start paintings of the world's Gardens. including Garden in Garden studies and do research and studies for my Triptych of Monet's Giverny. I had that Painting in mind when I designed and had my studio of light built as an addition to my Pebble Beach Home. I love traveling and experiencing different World Cultures. Painting my way around the world in 1997 with my 2 painting sons who were 7 and 20 at the time was a realization of a dream. There was a time when I had 2 homes, times shares , My own Sail boat a 34 foot yawl, and a motor home. I earned them by disciplined Hard work. I bring that same discipined drive into my Spiritual work inspite of the pain, I sometime am in.

The month of December and January found me working very hard and enjoying it, having very little sleep. I work late and Get up early for the 8 Oclock daily Mass and Communion and to lead the Rosary after the Mass. Then off to the rest homes visiting the Ill Singing and Praying, bringing them comfort understandings and some joy & smiles I might get home by 2 o 3 PM . There are some long days when it will be dark before I arrive back at home. I will start working on Paintings or Making Crosses to share, Home page and youtube videos

Following Video***

I had a vision of the Painting of Living Water during a Friday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

An inner voice said Do this Painting and Your Problems would be over. I wrote about the Synchronistic Positive Happenings while doing the painting in another section.

I was cured of Macular Degeneration with a hole in the rear of my eye with diminishing vision.

I had difficulty painting. The Hole disappeard and my vision improved to the astonishment of my eye doctor. I am seeing and painting better than ever at 78. My Birthday is today, Jan 28. I do believe that God has help me so that I may Paint the spiritual works that I feel are inspired by the Holy Spirit.

The stories of Two Inscribed Homily Paintings & the behind the scenes revealing experiences with them. I call them Homily Painting because the word are like a visual sermon reflective of my Bible reading, Meditation and Prayers for Healing of the Soul and the Body when it is God's will! One can Paint an uplifting Painting of Beauty that God created and offer it up as a prayer.

My Martin Luther King Day video of a deeper explanation Of How a White Madonna and Child changed into a Black madonna and Child when A ray of Light passed through Mary's Heart and shone directly on Baby Jesus. I recalled Nelson Mandela, as Martin Luther King and Mandela were kindred Spirit in different parts of the world doing the Lord's work! God created Free men in His Dominion. Man creates the problems in the world when they misuse Politics and Religion to control people by fear and hatred.

This Video reflects my never ending spiritual creativity that fosters with the help of the Holy Spirit, the fulfillment of my life's mission and calling to be a peacemaker. and to care for and love my Neighbors . I am inspired by my love of Jesus and the words he spoke while here on earth and His Mom, Mother Mary.

I brought the fragrant rose in the video to some one special immediately after shooting the video around 6 :15 PM. A vibrant young patient was happy to partake of the beautiful Fragrance of the rose. She asked me what color it was as Cynthia has been blind and in a wheel chair for many years. She almost died during child birth I believe her kids are now teenagers. She emanates joy of being thankful for being alive. She lifts the spirits of other patients by her aura of joy. A beautiful spiritual lady with a great love of Jesus and life. She is blind but can see what we can not and maintains a wonderful upbeat sense of Humor and a smile that would light up the dark of anyone's lonely heart. There are always the forlorn and forgotten in rest homes that need to share a little mirth anf joy..

Caring Touch of God, Eyes of Mary, 2 Palliative Care Spiritual Experiences

You may be familiar with the encouraging compassion concept of seeing Jesus in the eyes of those in need. I felt the caring touch of God from the hands of a friend Larry Anderson a few days before He passed over to the other side as Cancer took it's toll.

I told him how earlier that morning in Church I felt the gentle touch of a caring hand on my shoulder that brought me comfort and relief from stress.

When I looked over to see who touched me there was no one there. I was alone in the last pew. The stress I was feeling left me and in it's place was the gentle ambiance of total peace and a closeness to God.

The last few days as Larry became weaker , Larry's movement was limited to moving his eyes, His hands and arms were motionless under his blanket when I would visit him each morning. That Morning after relating the story to Larry, he pulled his right arm from beneath the bed spread and raised it high to reach my shoulder. I was to experience the same feeling of peace in Larry touch that I felt in church. It was the repeat of feeling of the comforting gentle touch of God on My Shoulder

Mystical Experience, Mother Mary Eyes & Sublime Joy

My experience in the Hospital was very different while visiting Dolores Edith Garbizo, Both Larry and Dolores were wonderfully close to God.


Dolores was a terminally ill lady in advance stage of Cancer. I was to have a visual experience that filled me with overwhelming emotion that brought tears of joy to my eyes. Bear in mind Dolores has shared with me the extent of her problem and I knew her time was drawing near. She asked me why is this happening to me George, I told her there are times when God will call those he loves dearly to be by his side, That her pain will be gone and she will experience a far greater joy than she ever had before. I believed that she would be with God but I felt the natural impending sorrow of missing a love one that soon would go her way. The sadness and sorrow we feel are not for the ones who go their way to Paradise but for us who have to stay.

I felt very close to her spiritually and loved the beauty and Love She held for Jesus and Mother Mary. Dolores was my Sister in Christ who shared the same strong mutual love of Jesus and Mary as I do. I shared another prayer with her that was inspired by the Painting, " Living Water" that I has a vision of in the Sanctuary during adoration I like the concept of an Army of one, In reference to what one individual can do to make a difference. I am and have been an Army of one serving God. standing up with out fear, visually alone, but with God at my side, for my Principles which are rooted in Christ's Commands of Love especially the New One John Chap. 13 Verse 34.

The following Meditation Prayer was written while Painting the Image I had a vision of in the Sanctuary during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

"Do this painting and your problems will be over" message came with the vision in the Sanctuary. The Following prayer came into being offering up my work on the Painting of Living Water as a Prayer. There is a Hail Mary and Rosary influence in the Prayer in the original format.It starts with the Nicene Creed. This Prayer It is third one of five segments. It has been shortened to recitation of the five segment Five time contemplating Christ Five wounds, as the prayer is for those who have wounds of their own, Spiritual, Physical Ailments, Family Problems, Psychological and Other problems. The first 3 reflect the Holy Trinity, Father Son and Holy Spirit , then the Holy Family's intercession for family Problms, The fifth now as my After communion prayer

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee, Blessed art Thou among women and Blessed is the Fruit of Thy womb Jesus.

Holy Mary Mother of God, Pray for us your children, while we stand beneath the living water, having Bodies and Souls Cleansed by the Holy Spirit's Grace.

Now with open Hearts may we joyfully accept the Power and Glory of God's Perfect Healing Love. Heal Thy brethern Lord if it be Thy Holy Will. Hold them in your Arms O Lord. If their time has come to Join you , May Thy will be done.

The Living Water Painting is behind my Rainbow Mother Mary Statue That was given to me by the President of St. Angela's Legion of Mary Group that I belonged to. She was not happy with my restoration, I had gentle smile on Mother Mary Face. She said Mary should be sad not smiling and looking down. If you Knelt down as a regular Legion of Mary during the Rosary , The eyes would smile gently down on you like in My New Song Eyes of Mary. If you set at the table where the Legion of Mary oficers set during the recitation of the Rosary she would be looking across at you, right in your eyes. I have studied Painting and sculptures of Mary in Museums and Churches through out Europe and the world including Rome. I used that knowledge and with the help of Grays Anatomy tranformed an inexpensive inacurate statue that was damaged into a work of art that may have put that smile on Mary's Face. She gave me another statue of Mary with the Hand knocked off. She asked me to put the hand back on George but don't touch her face. This one had a well crafted face

I feel it is important to commend the President of our Presidium for being a very spiritual woman serving God and Man and her family unselfishly as God would have her do. Some individuals enjoy the role of Authority more than others. I like being lower on the totem pole. It is better to be a pawn moved by the hand of God Then a king moved by the hand of man. My vision of Mary has always been one of a Peaceful Loving Mother, not as a Celtic Warrior Madonna Queen envisioned by Frank Duffy, the Irish founder of Legion of Mary. The Legion of Mary has done wonderful works spreading the Catholic Faith and Devotion Jesus and Mary through Mary special Prayer the Rosary, meditating on the Life of Jesus. Visiting the ill and infirmed. I was a very active member until They shut us down for lack of Members.


I care about everyone but feel closer to those that My Gift of Discernment identify as being especially close to God and Dolores had that ambience. The woman was very spiritual and had a beautiful love of Jesus and His Mother Mary. The shirt I was wearing with an image of Mother Mary I had painted on it opened the door to an intimate spiritual conversation of Her Love of Jesus, Mother Mary and the Rosary.


We prayed together I sang my Ave Maria that I composed while painting my 3 by 5 foot Hispanic Madonna Painting, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Queen of Peace.


Even though her eyes were partially closed from Pain Medication I was quite taken by the color of them as they were the same as Mary's eyes in my Madonna painting.


After we did the Breathe in the breath of Baby Jesus while holding Him in your Heart, Mind and Soul Prayer and Meditation Exercise I told Dolores I would like to do a painting of her. I did not tell her at the time it would be of Mother Mary holding Baby Jesus. she told me her son played guitar, so I told Dolores that I would return later with My Guitar and play and sing for her.

"Mother Mary's Blue. One of Favorite (Lourdes Water) Mary Songs I ever wrote, I sang for Dolores "

I returned that evening with my Guitar and sang a number of my Mary Songs for her and we prayed We Shared a special favorite prayer of mine that evening, That she asked for a copy of. I wrote it out at the nurses station and they were to make copies for other cancer patients and give the original to Dolores.She never received it.

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 Sacred Blood Flow, Flow to every Part of Me , Healing as it goes.

Abide in`Me O Lord , May I abide in Thee with the Father Son and Holy Spirit, Blesed Trinity.

What follows was a mystical experience that moved me emotionally but not as Much as the Eyes of Mary Experience. It was like wonder in the Eyes of Mary and wondering Why, The Face on the inner Tabernacle wall. I compared it with briefer mystical experiences I wondered about the significance of the Face that appeared on inner wall of Tabernacle August 2, 2013.

I felt something special has happened but did not know what it was.

I was aware of Ruben's dramatic change, but did know the precise day that Ruben's wonderful amazing change happened until later when I viewed the 2nd Youtube video that his close friend Victor Gimenez did on Ruben and it had the date of His remarkable August First. I go where I feel I am directed to go and it could be any number of rest homes and residences where I attend to those in need doing what I feel God wants me to do. lationship to the Face inside the Tabernacle until later.


I had videod the Face on the Tabernacle Wall the day after Ruben Baez's Healing Change. My experience with Dolores was an affirmation of a deeper immediate spiritual nature unlike any of the unique mystical happenings I have experienced up until now and I have had a number of them.including one of a Young Franciscian. He appeared briefly during adoratio said I will help you and and was gone.

I regarded the others as wow! Open up your eyes George, experiences but minor in nature when compared with the wonderful joy filled emotional experience with Dolores which I call the Eyes of Mary. It filled my whole being with a sense of Joy and happiness, stronger than any emotional experience I ever had. I value highly my relationships with those on a similar spiritual plane that have shared their unique experiences with me. They know full well of what I speak. It has happened through the centuries and will continue to happen to the servants of God. Those who have a stronger relationship with a church then with God will never know the joy that God gives those who love Him completely and trust in Him as a child.

Spiritual disciplines of Loving God as a child with complete trust can open doors to joys far beyond any sensual pleasures the world can provide you with...I experienced many in my 77 years of living but this surpassed them all!

The Next Morning, after The Eyes of Mary experience I visited Dolores after Mass and my Come into My Heart O Lord Prayer that Dolores liked was shared once again. This Time after we both received Holy Communion in her hospital room. Somehow was very special in feeling. I often will partake of Communion when I am visiting Patients who are receiving Communion. This time it was different. There was a wonderful feeling of spiritual unity between Jesus in the Eucharist, the Eucharistic Minister, Dolores and I. She said she was from Saint Angelas Church but I never saw her before at St. Angelas. She had a special spiritual ambiance. There are special times when I feel the gift of discernment. The Eucharistic Minister was Angelic.

It was a wonderful start to a day where I would go on to different rest homes visiting other friends with different Needs until mid afternoon. I am into fives and often do 5 hours visiting Patients. Each Then Home to Paint and sing a New song unto the Lord that I was writing, fix dinner for my son and return to the Hospital

The Experience of Seeing Mother Mary's Eyes

That evening a change came over Dolores's Eyes! Dolores's Eyes provided me with a moment of intense sublime joy & Beauty That brought tears of overwhelming Joy to my own eyes, Her half closed eyes open wide and became radiant, raying out Light, Kindness and Love, They were perfect and beautiful. I had this unique sense that I was not looking into Dolores's eyes but into the eyes of Mother Mary. What she said and the timing of her words moved me and touched my Heart with wonder, wondering where or when. She said, " We will meet again. "

I would return the next day with the copy of the prayer that they never gave her, But Dolores was Gone. I made numerous attempts to contact her through Madonna Del Sasso the church she attended including an e mail to Father Joey who would give her last rites, later purely by chance I found her Photo in the obituary and atteded a rosary that night at the Funeral Homes Chapel in Salinas. After the rosary I went to Dolore's side with her daughter Deborah and held my warm left hand over her cold hands folded in prayer, holding her rosary and Made Sign of the Cross on her forehead with my right hand. I prayed her soul's right hand would once again return the blessing of God on my forehead as she would when I would visit her and take my leave after. I told Her Daughter Deborah, that Dolores was very special to God and was experiencing the Joy of being with Him! I sincerely felt and believed that Dolores was in Heaven and God willing that is where we will meet again as she said.

The next morning I would bring her one last rose from my Garden to her burial service the next day at Our Lady, Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Prunedale.


Among the roses on the top of Dolore's coffin was a rosebud from from my Garden arch above St. Francis


I am working on this section the Ninth of January 9 th and there is another single fragrant Rose bud to share, to bring some one joy. Another Rose for Mother Mary.


One of the Rosary ladies at church asked me if I were Lonely. My answer was a question. How can you be lonely when You have God in your heart are on God's auto Pilot. You go where he will direct you and do what he will have you do. Woe will come them who interfere with those who walk in the light of the Lord, serving God by being a caring servant to their fellow man.

I will do the painting of Dolores as Mary Holding Baby Jesus. I keep Pondering Her words, "We will Meet again " wondering If the eyes were the eyes of Mary , were the words "We will meet again, the words of Mary or Dolores speaking of Life in the here after. The memory of that special experience still brings me tears of Joy. Thanks be to God, May He bless all of you with the gift of deep Faith.

I started The prayer painting " Eyes of Mary "for Healing and Peace, Dec. 21 ...

I am amazed at How well I am Painting, with so very little sleep. I have also been doing more writing on my spiritual Journal on my homepage then usual even though I have been having more computer problems with files ,moviemaking, uploading , downloading , internet disconnects. I would patiently accept it as a challenge and do it again and again until I achieved my goal. The files for the first section would not come up as prepared. they were just a portion of what I wrote. I am creative and found other ways to share my Love of the Lord.


A Ray of Light shone on the painting and while the ray shone on the painting Mary and Jesus appeared differently. She became the Black Madonna of Sudan holding her dark skin Baby Jesus. Pray for and support any efforts at achieving Peace by diplomacy, not by weapons that will only bring more carnage to the diverse Children of Abraham, Christians and Muslims brutally killing each other, their Men, Women and Helpless Children.


I heard Good News the day before my birthday Jan. 28 that a cease fire was in effect in Sudan.I know it is fragile.They still need our prayers for Peace.

I have two Images from one painting.I am contemplating doing a Painting of a Black Madonna based on her appearance when the bright ray reflected on the Eyes of Mary Painting as a Thank You God Painting. to give to a church in Sudan.

I thought of a special painting of Jesus dressed in Black, I started during the Mid-East Crisis between Israel and Palestine called the Prince of Peace. I wrote a Johnny Cash Memorial Song ," Man in Black while working on the Painting.

To download these MP3s right click the song's title and select 'save target as'.

"Man in Black"

This was part of a triad of songs that part of a New Years Resolution to use my creativity for Peace in the world. They were written along with "Here and Now". Curse of Cain, as Man in Black as a singing prayer while working on a prayer Painting " Man in Black", a Painting of Jesus Christ called Prince of Peace. I gave to a Priest from Africa for St Patricks Church in Africa. These creative efforts were offered up as a prayer, praying for Peace in the Mid- East and the world. They along with "Children of Abraham" are rededicated all Peace efforts in the Mid-East and the world. What started as a New Years Resolution before the Iraq war has evolved into dedicating the rest of my life to be an active creative voice for peace, Understanding and Justice in the world. May the Common Goals of Understanding , Peace and Justice be assured through Mutual Respect , Unity and Strength, Blessed by the One God we all worship and Honor though we may know Him by different Names, He is one and the same.

I shared the painting of Christ in my Gallery, and kept it in my personal collection for years. One employee told me I was hurting sales and asked me to take it down. I told him you will leave before the painting does, It stays! There were a number of People who wanted to buy it but I would not sell it. I gave it as a gift to a priest from Africa for a church in Nigeria. My feeling was they need the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ to help them realize Peace You May Note the tears I added for American Soldiers and innocent Children were killed in conlicts in the Mid East. I would repaint the tears over and over again. They represented the Pain we cause Christ by our actions and inaction. Not only did I paint the tears over, I would repaint Christ's Face as this one is under the other I believe. I feel that I should paint the Man in Black again using this image and my Shroud of Turin Painting as the Model and that if it is God's will It would end up in an Orthodox or Coptic Christian Church in Israel, Palestine or Egypt.


Father Ed and myself with my gift painting of Christ, Prince of Peace to be sent to Africa. We are in front of my Carmel Gallery


He suffered out of love for us. Reach for the Cross of God's Love and Forgiveness, Walk in the Light of the Lord and should you stumble in the darkness and fall, When you reach for the Cross, You will hear Christ call, Get up my friend, Get up and climb again. I love and forgive you, when it is your time to go I will welcome you in to the Kingdom of God' Love.


When Temptation beckons you to the dark side of the world, Reach for the Cross and The Light of The Lord and He will be at your side to lift you up as he did me if you fall!.Just call out His Name, Jesus and reach for His Cross

I have been Making Manly Crosses for men and more delicate ones for women and Giving them to people. The One in the Photograph was special, I wore it until I could give it to my Grand Daughter who is not quite 4 and has a problem with seizures . Do Pray for her. Her condition has been improving.

Now comes what is distracting to Me, especially when I have to do it over and over again

I may be facing the Real Time experience of Selected Portfolio Servicing initiating Forclosure Procedures. They are suppose to be working on a home modification for me and I believe there is a law that they should not be able to start forclosure proceeding while that modification effort is in process.I questioned them yesterday on that issue when I called to verify SPS receiving the additional documents which once again, I believe this may be the fourth time after sending them the original documents. they ask me for to supply them with more documents to continue the work on my modification and they said I was correct that legal procedures could not commense on forclosure while being evaluated for a modification. If I failed to send them in before their deadline, which in some cases was a matter of days. THe modification procedure would stop and I would have been faced with legal forclosure procedures. I have been very good about the promptness in supplin them the requested information.

Once before They informed me that the modification process stopped as my financial Statement had expired. I had to gather the current info, send it in for them to restart the process which I did but not with out difficulty.

I tried to fax them the information I had to send more documents required to restart the Modification and I was working with a time deadline that it had to be in the date I was faxing the info. It is a good thing That I kept on trying until I accomplish my goal for 10 hours from 6 PM until 4AM hours before I was successful. I would call them and they would tell me that they are receiving a lot of complex statements and that is why the delay in getting through with my fax efforts. I was aware that you could give them the required information over the phone so I asked them to take it down and the conversations are recorded. I knew that to be an option. Not taking any chances I stayed up until 4AM Making Crosses and trying to fax them every half hour. I suceeded at 4 AM .I also mailed it in the next day to insure they had the info.

I sent 3 months of Bank Statements as requested but not with out first solving new Printer Problems??? Why ? and I have learned to prevent any interference I would disconnect the ethernet cable from the Modem into the Computer in order to accomplish simple computer program tasks that were impossible when Plugged into the modem and the internet. They ask me to do it again later I did not circle My Social Securuty deposits that they never asked me circle My Social security ere that was clearly printed out as a SS deposit When I said what is the mental capacity of your underwriters. A Kid in Gramamr school could see the Social Securit deposit as they are printed clearly as a Social Security Deposits. and there were only 3 of them. then They asked for lease paper for my new renters of room which I wrote exactly to their directions and had each one sign it.and send it in. They had the names but said they did not have the forms. If they did not recieive the forms they would not have their names.

The date is now Feb. 7 while working on this section of my homepage. I made it through Feb.6 with out the start of legal procedures to forclose.

The new date of concern is now Feb. 28. The date they stated in a letter Jan. 28, 2014 that legal forclosure procedures could begin was Feb. 28 2014. They sent me the same forms Jan.28 that I had filled out the week before and faxed them the completed forms Jan. 27 and also mailed them copies with my last recent payment about 8 days ago.

On Feb. 5 th a SPS representative called me because I was on their call list. I asked him questions about the neccesity of filling out the forms again. Upon looking up my records said I did not have to fill them out again as they have received the same forms and I need not fill them out and send them in again. He could not answer specif questions dealing with the start of procedures to forclose when one is being reviewed for a modification.

Their answers to my questions relating to the start of legal procedures when you are being reviewed for a modification have been evasive. He said I am in the process of being reviewed but am not in the Modification mode. They said they don't know when but there a date in the letter I received stating Feb. 28 is the date for legal actions to start the procedure of Forclosure if I do not meet the back

This may be illegal to set a date for legal actions leading to forclosure while being reviewed for a modification. If you read this do me a favor and foward this section to someone in Wash., D.C. in charge of investigating Banks handling of Loans and forclosures. I have no idea who that may be.

I am not over the hurdle yet, but I am working on it and will not leave it up to chance. I will try to pay the missed payments by the sale of my art. Even when I was very Ill for extended periods of time I never applied for Finacial aid.

Both Bank of America and Selected Portfolio Servicing have both tried to pressure me to do a short sale. I told them I want to keep my home and would lose it all first before I would sell it. It is my intent to hopefully live out my days doing what I am doing and loving it until the day I die.

At the rate I have been pushing myself I may drop dead from exhaustionwhen I am 101.and my Spiritual Journal will be my epitaph. I designed my home to do a major tryptich of Giverny, I could very well finish it in 2014. Finally after a Quarter of a Century.

My Home has a Spiritual Mood Ambiance that encourages wonderful natural outflows of Spiritual energy, Feeling God's Love and sharing it, In My Paintings, Songs and Communication,homepage, Youtubes etc. I am more into one on one experiences sharing the word of God and His Love.

I have taken in the Homeless, cared for the Terminally ill in my home.

I am a New Testament Bible Man who engraved on his heart the words That Christ spoke while here on Earth and live by Those Sacred Words of Love!I am here to serve all my Brothers in Sisters in Christ, all the Children of God. I go Mass and Communion every day and lead the start of the Rosary each day. When I Paint I sing new songs unto the Lord as Prayer offerings for Peope in need.

It is not uncommon for patients and attendents to call me Father as if I were a Priest. I tell them you may call me Brother, I am your Brother in Christ. There are Eucharistic Ministers who Bring Jesus to you in the Host. I bring you the Spirit.

I love receiving Jesus in Holy Communion. People spoke to me about being an Eucharistic Minister but I could never deny giving communion to someone who was ill and believe Jesus was present in the Eucharist even though they were not a Catholic. During Communion Services that I would assist in by singing and praying, I would invite the Non-Catholics to ask Jesus to come into their heart in Spiritual Communion using the prayer that I do after 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 Sacred Blood Flow , Flow to every part of me Healing as it flow. Abide in Me O Lord and May I abide in Thee, with the Father Son andHoly Spirit, Blessed Trinity. Heal thy Brethern Lord if it be Thy Holy will.

I have a close friend in my Parish of St.Angelas Merici who candidly told me the church did not approve of My Healing efforts, Caring and praying for the ill, where they became better including one and perhaps more who were terminal. My Question is who was he talking about disapproves of my work, the Laity, a Priest, a Bishop, a Cardinal, Who disapproved and why? I do not heal, Not to Worry, I do nothing but pray for them and with them which is more effective., God does it all . I am just a God Loving facilitator at times

I will leave you with one final thought that perhaps you may help me to continue what I am doing Serving God by Serving Others from my rest home and hospital work to work with the homeless. If it happens it will be the Holy Spirit moving some one to do it. In addition my Major works in the thousands I have small original paintings as low as $400 which would are $ 200 while I have this sale going on. as I have been paying far more attention to my spiritual work. I am not asking for Charity I am asking you consider my Art for a special place in your home, Church , Rest home or Hospital especially My Spiritual Paintings for use in a place of worship or a caring resthome or even in your own home if it brought you the positive feeling of Mother Mary' Caring Gentle Caring love that Eyes of Mary emanates in this Painting.

Perhap some one could purchase My eyes of Mary and give it to a Church , Rest Home or Hospital if they saw the benefit it could bring. It could do the same in your home. I feel My Paintings should be in a place where their beauty and uplifting messages could pick up the spirits of the viewer which they have as I had carried the works from room to room and residents and attendents in rest homes would stop me in the Hall to admire the Eyes of Mary. I shared it with Black and White Patients and with friends

The First Time I brought my 3 by 5 foot Rosary Painting of Mary to rest Homes was a result of being asked to remove it from the Library. I was one of the official Greeter in the Library when we were to inform visitors and New Church Members of our activities. I prepared a small frames Cork Board with an article written by a priest called the Romance of the Rosary and information on our daily Rosary and The Heart of Divine Mercy Devotion after the 8 Oclock Morning Mass Mass and Fridays Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

I also brought in my 3 by 5 foot Rosary Mary Painting. Children flocked around Mary as she was Beautiful and they were old enough to read and understand the Peace Messages. They asked me to remove it so I brought it to rest homes to share that day and have been doing it ever since. They also took down the attractive small corkboard display I created about the Rosary, Heart of Divine Mercy and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

There has to be a Catholic Church some where or a Church of some Denomination where the Peace Messages inscribed on My Queen of Peace Painting would be welcomed.

I feel that we fulfill Our Mission Statement of being a welcoming Community but there are times when the informality borders on Irreverence. Like the arm waving Hugging gestures by the Baptismal Font of two woman greeting each other with in 10 or 15 feet of where one just drank the wine, the Blood of Christ in communion. Their arm waving antics during their conversation went on for quite awhile while others were receiving Holy Communion, 10 or 15 feet away. I witnessed the concerned annoyance of others.

That incident called to mind when 2 prominent Parishoner were Talking in a normal voice not quietly that was louder then the man who was leading one decade of the rosary directly behind the Sanctuary while we were praying the Rosary 10 to 15 feet away in the Sanctuary. Stanna a long time Parishoner in her Eighties and a regular at the Rosary Service sincerely apologised to them after the Rosary. "I hope our praying did not annoy your conversation" I wonder if Jesus and Mother Mary may have thought the wrong Person was apologising.

An individual who was very active in church work told me of Something that he observed that had him wondering what is going on. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of his statement. There was a family group praying the Rosary in front of Our Lady of Fatima Statue in the small area just behind the library. A woman with a sense of authority directed the whole family into the seperate adjacent Child sound proof room so it would not annoy her meditation and prayers.

That was some what similar to something very similar to what our New Pastor Father Seamus said to me after our Rosary Service. That our Rosary recitation could annoy others in the church. There was only one woman praying in the church. She was a regular at the 8 O clock Mass in the church so I approached and asked her if our saying the rosary bothered her. She said No, not at all, that she prayed the rosary along with us but did not go into the sanctuary.

I wonder about if some of the regulars who use to join us in the rosary recitation were told not to do so. As at times there almost appears to be deterent that I can not explain when it come to devotional services. Including the Rosary after mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after Friday's 8 AM Mass. In a span of over 5 years .I have never heard one priest mention we were having adoration after the Friday 8 O clock Mass.

Father Seamus offered to do an extra Mass during Lent. I thought that was a wonderful idea to allow those who are off to work in the Morning to participate in Mass and Communion.

Friday 3 PM, Stations of the Cross during Lent is being discontinued.

I spoke to Father Seamus about the time of the mass and also asked if they were going to continue to have the Stations of the Cross on Friday. He said something about things are being changed and He did not think they would be continued. I hope the 3 PM Stations of the Cross are not discontinued They were relativly well attended with More Parishoners than you have at the 8 O clock Morning Mass. I told Father Seamus I hope they don't take the Stations of the Cross off the wall. P>

The Way of the Cross according to the method of Saint Francis of Assisi

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Preparatory Prayer

O most merciful Jesus, with a contrite heart and penitent spirit, I bow down in profound humility before Thy divine majesty. I adore Thee as my supreme Lord and Master; I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I love Thee above all things. I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, my Supreme and Only Good. I resolve to amend my life, and although I am unworthy to obtain mercy, yet the sight of Thy holy cross, on which Thou didst die, inspires me with hope and consolation. I will, therefore, meditate on Thy sufferings, and visit the stations of Thy Passion in company with Thy sorrowful Mother and my guardian angel, with the intention of promoting Thy honor and saving my soul. I desire to gain all the indulgences granted for this holy exercise for myself and for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. O merciful Redeemer, who has said, "And I, if I be lifted from earth, will draw all things to Myself," draw my heart and my love to Thee, that I may perform this devotion as perfectly as possible, and that I may live and die in union with Thee. Amen.

STATION 1 - Jesus is condemned to Death

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Jesus, most innocent, who neither did nor could commit a sin, was condemned to death, and moreover, to the most ignominious death of the cross. To remain a friend of Caesar, Pilate delivered Him into the hands of His enemies. A fearful crime -- to condemn Innocence to death, and to offend God in order not to displease men!

Prayer

O innocent Jesus, having sinned, I am guilty of eternal death, but Thou willingly dost accept the unjust sentence of death, that I might live. For whom, then, shall I henceforth live, if not for Thee, my Lord? Should I desire to please men, I could not be Thy servant. Let me, therefore, rather displease men and all the world, than not please Thee, O Jesus.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

At the cross her station keeping,

Stood the mournful Mother weeping,

Close to Jesus to the last.

STATION 2 - Jesus is made to carry His Cross

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

When our divine Savior beheld the cross, He most willingly stretched out His bleeding arms, lovingly embraced it, and tenderly kissed it, and placing it on His bruised shoulders, He, although almost exhausted, joyfully carried it.

Prayer

O my Jesus, I cannot be Thy friend and follower, if I refuse to carry the cross. O dearly beloved cross! I embrace thee, I kiss thee, I joyfully accept thee from the hands of my God. Far be it from me to glory in anything, save in the cross of my Lord and Redeemer. By it the world shall be crucified to me and I to the world, that I may be Thine forever.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing All His bitter anguish bearing, Now at length the sword has passed.

STATION 3 - Jesus falls the First Time

Adoration We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world. Meditation Our dear Savior, carrying the cross, was so weakened by its heavy weight as to fall exhausted to the ground. Our sins and misdeeds were the heavy burden which oppressed Him: the cross was to Him light and sweet, but our sins were galling and insupportable. Prayer O my Jesus, Thou didst bear my burden and the heavy weight of my sins. Should I, then, not bear in union with Thee, my easy burden of suffering and accept the sweet yoke of Thy commandments? Thy yoke is sweet and Thy burden is light: I therefore willingly accept it. I will take up my cross and follow Thee. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be... Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

O, how sad and sore distressed

Was that Mother highly blessed

Of the sole-begotten One!

STATION 4 - Jesus meets His Sorrowful Mother

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

How painful and how sad it must have been for Mary, the sorrowful Mother, to behold her beloved Son, laden with the burden of the cross! What unspeakable pangs her most tender heart experienced! How earnestly did she desire to die in place of Jesus, or at least with Him! Implore this sorrowful Mother that she assist you in the hour of your death.

Prayer

O Jesus, O Mary, I am the cause of the great and manifold pains which pierce your loving hearts! Oh, that also my heart would feel and experience at least some of your sufferings! O Mother of Sorrows, let me participate in the sufferings which thou and Thy Son endured for me, and let me experience thy sorrow, that afflicted with thee, I may enjoy thy assistance in the hour of my death.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Christ above in torment hangs,

She beneath beholds the pangs,

Of her dying, glorious Son.

STATION 5 - Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry His Cross

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Simon of Cyrene was compelled to help Jesus carry His cross, and Jesus accepted his assistance. How willingly would He also permit you to carry the cross: He calls, but you hear Him not; He invites you, but you decline. What a reproach, to bear the cross reluctantly!

Prayer

O Jesus! Whosoever does not take up his cross and follow Thee, is not worthy of Thee. Behold, I join Thee in the Way of Thy Cross; I will be Thy assistant, following Thy bloody footsteps, that I may come to Thee in eternal life. ------ Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Jesus Christ, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Is there one who would not weep

Whelmed in miseries so deep

Christ's dear Mother to Behold?

STATION 6 - Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world. Meditation

Veronica, impelled by devotion and compassion, presents her veil to Jesus to wipe His disfigured face. And Jesus imprints on it His holy countenance: a great recompense for so small a service. What return to you make to your Savior for His great and manifold benefits?

Prayer

Most merciful Jesus! What return shall I make for all the benefits Thou hast bestowed upon me? Behold I consecrate myself entirely to Thy service. I offer and consecrate to Thee my heart: imprint on it Thy sacred image, never again to be effaced by sin.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Can the human heart refrain

From partaking in her pain,

that Mother's pain untold?

STATION 7 - Jesus falls the Second Time

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

The suffering Jesus, under the weight of His cross, again falls to the ground; but the cruel executioners do not permit Him to rest a moment. Pushing and striking Him, they urge Him onward. It is the frequent repetition of our sins which oppress Jesus. Witnessing this, how can I continue to sin?

Prayer

O Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! Offer me Thy helping hand, and aid me, that I may not fall again into my former sins. From this very moment, I will earnestly strive to reform: nevermore will I sin! Thou, O sole support of the weak, by Thy grace, without which I can do nothing, strengthen me to carry out faithfully this my resolution.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled,

She beheld her tender child,

All with bloody scourges rent.

STATION 8 - The women of Jerusalem weep over Jesus

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

These devoted women, moved by compassion, weep over the suffering Savior. But He turns to them, saying: "Weep not for Me, Who am innocent, but weep for yourselves and for your children." Weep thou also, for there is nothing more pleasing to Our Lord and nothing more profitable for thyself, than tears shed from contrition for thy sins.

Prayer

O Jesus, Who shall give to my eyes a torrent of tears, that day and night I may weep for my sins? I beseech Thee, through Thy bitter and bloody tears, to move my heart by Thy divine grace, so that from my eyes tears may flow abundantly, and that I may weep all my days over Thy sufferings, and still more over their cause, my sins.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

For the sins of His own nation

Saw Him hang in desolation

Till His Spirit forth He sent.

STATION 9 - Jesus falls the Third Time

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Jesus, arriving exhausted at the foot of Calvary, falls for the third time to the ground. His love for us, however, is not diminished, not extinguished. What a fearfully oppressive burden our sins must be to cause Jesus to fall so often! Had He, however, not taken them upon Himself, they would have plunged us into the abyss of Hell.

Prayer

Most merciful Jesus, I return Thee infinite thanks for not permitting me to continue in sin and to fall, as I have so often deserved, into the depths of Hell. Enkindle in me an earnest desire of amendment; let me never again relapse, but vouchsafe me the grace to persevere in penance to the end of my life.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

O thou Mother! fount of love,

Touch my spirit from above.

Make my heart with thine accord:

STATION 10 - Jesus is stripped of His Garments

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation When Our Savior had arrived on Calvary, He was cruelly despoiled of His garments. How painful this must have been because they adhered to His wounded and torn body, and with them parts of His bloody skin were removed! All the wounds of Jesus were renewed. Jesus was despoiled of His garments that He might die possessed of nothing; how happy will I also die after laying aside my former self with all evil desires and sinful inclinations! Prayer Induce me, O Jesus, to lay aside my former self and to be renewed according to Thy will and desire. I will not spare myself, however painful this should be for me: despoiled of things temporal, of my own will, I desire to die, in order to live for Thee forever.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Make me feel as thou hast felt;

Make my soul to glow and melt

With the love of Christ, my Lord.

STATION 11 - Jesus is nailed to the Cross

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Jesus, being stripped of His garments, was violently thrown upon the cross and His hands and feet nailed thereto. In such excruciating pains He remained silent, because it pleased His heavenly Father. He suffered patiently, because He suffered for me. How do I act in sufferings and in troubles? How fretful and impatient, how full of complaints I am!

Prayer

O Jesus, gracious Lamb of God, I renounce forever my impatience. Crucify, O Lord, my flesh and its concupiscences; scourge, scathe, and punish me in this world, do but spare me in the next. I commit my destiny to Thee, resigning myself to Thy holy will: may it be done in all things!

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Holy Mother, pierce me through!

In my heart, each wound renew

Of my Savior crucified.

STATION 12 - Jesus is raised upon the Cross and Dies

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Behold Jesus crucified! Behold His wounds, received for love of you! His whole appearance betokens love: His head is bent to kiss you; His arms are extended to embrace you; His Heart is open to receive you. O superabundance of love, Jesus, the Son of God, dies upon the cross, that man may live and be delivered from everlasting death!

Prayer

O most amiable Jesus! Who will grant me that I may die for Thee! I will at least endeavor to die to the world. How must I regard the world and its vanities, when I behold Thee hanging on the cross, covered with wounds? O Jesus, receive me into Thy wounded Heart: I belong entirely to Thee; for Thee alone do I desire to live and to die.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Let me share with thee His pain,

Who for all our sins was slain,

Who for me in torments died.

STATION 13 - Jesus is taken from the Cross and given to His Mother

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

Meditation

Jesus did not descend from the cross but remained on it until He died. And when taken down from it, He in death as in life, rested on the bosom of His divine Mother. Persevere in your resolutions of reform and do not part from the cross; he who persevereth to the end shall be saved. Consider, moreover, how pure the heart should be that receives the body and blood of Christ in the Adorable Sacrament of the Altar.

Prayer

O Lord Jesus, Thy lifeless body, mangled and lacerated, found a worthy resting-place on the bosom of Thy virgin Mother. Have I not often compelled Thee to dwell in my heart, full of sin and impurity as it was? Create in me a new heart, that I may worthily receive Thy most sacred body in Holy Communion, and that Thou mayest remain in me and I in Thee for all eternity.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Lord Jesus, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

Mourning Him who mourned for me,

All the days that I may live.

STATION 14 - Jesus is laid in the Sepulcher

Adoration

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.

The body of Jesus is interred in a stranger's sepulchre. He who in this world had not whereupon to rest His head, would not even have a grave of His own, because He was not from this world. You, who are so attached to the world, henceforth despise it, that you may not perish with it.

Prayer

O Jesus, Thou hast set me apart from the world; what, then, shall I seek therein? Thou hast created me for Heaven; what, then, have I to do with the world? Depart from me, deceitful world, with thy vanities! Henceforth i will follow the Way of the Cross traced out for me by my Redeemer, and journey onward to my heavenly home, there to dwell forever and ever.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...

Jesus Christ, crucified, have mercy on us!

Stabat Mater

By the cross with thee to stay,

There with thee to weep and pray,

Is all I ask of thee to give.

Concluding Prayer

Almighty and eternal God, merciful Father, who hast given to the human race Thy beloved Son as an example of humility, obedience, and patience, to precede us on the way of life, bearing the cross: Graciously grant us that we, inflamed by His infinite love, may take up the sweet yoke of His Gospel together with the mortification of the cross, following Him as His true disciples, so that we shall one day gloriously rise with Him and joyfully hear the final sentence: "Come, ye blessed of My Father, and possess the kingdom which was prepared for you from the beginning," where Thou reignest with the Son and the Holy Spirit, and where we hope to reign with Thee, world without end. Amen.

. I always has a distaste for the Money Changers in the Temple as It was one of the only times when Christ became violently angry when He cast them out. We had football Lotteries announced from the Alter Podium Last Year during the Superbowl and this year during the final . It really is a way of Gambling involving Money Changing. Raising Money for a good Cause by Gambling in the church in the spirit of fun and football fervor did not seem right. Last year when The Forty Niners lost the Superbowl I did wonder if we may have Jinx the Forty Niners as they lost the Superbowl. I was a bit apprehensive when they did the Lottery again this year during the playoff. We all know the results. The Forty Niners are not in the Superbowl this year. I am a Forty Niner Fan and want them to win!

This morning the Eight of February there was to be a funeral at 9 AM for a Mr Pennise. Friday Stanna Suggested we not say the rosary and Heart of Divine Mercy devotion as it would coincide with the funeral which is fine and understandable. I went back this morning to say the Rosary silently myself and was joined by a male Parishioner who loved the rosary and Mother Mary. We recited the rosary devoutly and included Mr Pennise in our intentions, each leading a different decade, quietly and were finished at 9:45, 15 minutes before the funeral. Alex our Choir directors played a warm up for the funeral on the piano and it added to the beauty of our whispered prayers.

The rosary was a great mood setter for the rest home work for a couple of hours after mass where I sang my Ave Maria, Mother Mary 's Blue and My religious version of "You are my sunshine" to the delight of the Patients. My joyfilled rapport with the patients today was really special today, God's presence was with me today in a wonderful up lifting way. I was reaching the hearts of the patients in our deeper conversations.

I would rather share the Joy I found sharing God's Love in Rest Homes

This is a beautiful song That always had a special significance to me as a way of living my life. It will bring tears of Joy when you answer the call with , Here I am Lord! May you become more aware of God has blessed you all with His Love and Forgiveness . May you find the joy found in Loving God and Your Neighbor as Jesus loves you. Share His Love with All.

"Here I AM Lord"

My Spiritual Journal, High Lights,

Friday, March 8. Father Seamus during Morning Mass, always ask for intentions from the people present that we all can pray for together.

My Intention that we prayed for was that more people would attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after this Mass and Thanks be to God they did.

I know with any doubt the many Eucharistic Ministers we have at St.Angelas would gain a far deeper personal insight to Christ's Presence in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist that they bring to the infirmed. Adoration would help other church members realize that God is here in the interior of St. Angelas church in a real special way at all times in the Tabernacle not just at Mass, that calls for respectful reverence.

After Adoration, while the Blessed Sacrament was being put away, a suggested image of a Mother & Child

and a face to the right of them on the interior of the Tabernacle had me wondering, Was it a bad idea of stopping taking videos at the closing prayers of the interior of the Tabernacle when they put the Host Back in the Tabernacle. There was once a very distinct image of a face. I asked Father Seamus , "Whose Face would you expect to see in a Tabernacle? " I thought that I could do a painting study or sketch of the images I percieved. There were 2 other note worthy image suggestions. I will do these 3 as Part of my Lenten Exercise and more than likely I will write a new spiritual song while doing them. The feeling just came to me I should ask one of my new friends in one of the convalescent facilities to help me. She plays piano & guitar and I believe there are people you meet not by chance but by God's design.

The first image suggested a Man holding a circular light up in His Right Hand that to me was the Blessed Sacrament. On another Friday it was a of a Mother and Child. I made a quick study sketch of the the 3 different Friday images in the Tabernacle in the Church Library before I left for the Monterey Cathedral for the Stations of the Cross at 11:30 AM.

Cathedral of St.Bartholomew Monterey, Station Of the Cross, Every Friday during Lent at 11:30 AM

The church was filled with People of all Ages from Grandparents to young Children and more than one pregnant woman. There was a wonderful spiritual presence of God Present in those conducting the Way of the Cross and those Participating. Each Station along the way opened our minds to understand Christ Love and Sacrifce more deeply. The Precious Stabat Mater in Enlish opened the flood gate of Compassion for Mother Mary and her experience the Mother's love and Pain she felt for Her Sacred Son, Jesus.

Friday, March 14, I returned to the Cathedral in Monterey for the Stations of the Cross after Adorationat St Angelas Merci which ended at 10 AM.

It was like the first time but better,

March 07 , I met one of the Knights of Colubus Members who help lead the Way of the Cross. A few weeks ago He was in the hospital in a hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber with a Staph infection. He did infer that he was close to death. He may hI attended Stations of the cross in Monterey and at St.Angelas where they had a beter turnoutave come close to crossing over, knocking at Heaven's Gates . God Had different path for this younger Middle age man. He had work for him to do, to continue serving God and man as an Active Member of the Most Highly Respected for Good Reasons Catholic Men Organization, The Knights of Columbus.

I told Him that I have met a number of People who were suppose to die , But God keeps them here to continue to do His work, Reaching out to others with His Love and Forgivenes. I thought of with a smile how he has kept me here to reach out and help others and exerience pain for penance. I wll at time ask that he take away some one else Pain by transferring it to me. When you have experienced pain you will know compassion for others in Pain.

Friday Lenten Service at St.Angelas, 6 PM Followed By Community Sharing of Soup and Bread.at 6:30 in Parish Hall

Father Seamus Lenten Talk was like His Sermons, Rich, Deep Faith Sermons That Irish Priests and Ministers are superb in their sincere Delivery Of God's Messsage of Love and caring. It was not as well attended as the Station s of The Cross at the Monterey Cathedral or the former Stations of the Cross St. Angelas use to have at 3 PM. That could very well have to do with the time it was held. They had a great array of different soups and Bread etc. When the Gourmet News get out it may attract more Participators, But Then again St.Angelas has a cadre of excellent cooks, Bakers etc who provide sumptous main plates and deserts That led me to comment to a priest in the past, if only we fed our souls as well as we feed our Faces. I had one bowl of a wonderful Asian Seafood chowder which was more then sufficient as I still had to cook dinner for my Son. I was fortunate to be ata table where one couple was from the Mideast and another couple were experienced world travelers like myself which was enlightening and energized the conversation. An Other visiting lady involved in the art was also a delight.

Friday the 21 of March I attended Stations of the cross at Montery 's Cathedral and St.Angelas and recorded them more for sound so I could Play them while I was working on my last Painting of Christ which was also a Lenten Exercise. Paula and Father Seamus did a great job with the readings etc. So I used the recording at St. Angelas while working on the Painting which was on a video where the emphasis was on the sound to use while painting Jesus.
