St. Mary's Peak is almost obscured by snow clouds. This peak is part of the Bitterroot mountain range that held the Lewis and Clark expedition back several months before they could get through them. The mountain was considered sacred by the Salish as a place for Vision Quests. It was at the base of this mountain in the small town of Stevensville in 1841 that a dying Salish girl had a vision of the Virgin Mary which is what gave the mountain its name as well as the Jesuit mission at the base of the mountain.
To ask, seek and knock on the doors of TRUTH. A brief journey into the land of Light, Life and Love on the INTERNET reveals the extent of the primal battle for human souls.
Whereas we seem to know what Light is...
Whereas we seem to know what Life is...
Whereas we seem to know what Love is...
Do we really?
Do we see them as God has revealled them? Or have we redefined these words for ourselves, based on our own brokeness and situational ethics?
Which of the two definitions provides a reliable foundation, a rock solid site for our existence?
The above image was the 28th daily photo of a young seeker's year long journey to find Light, Life and Love in 2008. Isn't it ironic that it is Marian, blue toned and tied to the mystery of Mary's intercessory role in these very trying end times? The mid 1800's was not a panacea for love, joy and peace...and yet we see the High Ground of the Immaculate Conception and a visit to a young dying girl.
ASK, SEEK, KNOCK...Jesus own words, a triad that will reveal the REAL TRUTH as well as the many imposters.
LIGHT, LIFE, LOVE...Three words intimately related to the TRUINE GOD and Our Blessed Mother.
We must be careful when any person adds to this TRIAD. For instance when LIBERTY is added ...WATCHOUT!
I ask anyone out there to do the GOOGLE SEARCH on LIGHT, LIFE, LOVE, LIBERTY and see how this worlks. The battlefield is shocking, isn't it? It seems LIBERTY (a.k.a. LICENSE) is the self-pride that originated in the Angel of Light, Lucifer who was cast out of heaven for his choice of self v. his Creator.
The Statue of Liberty...hmmm? It was "a fruit" of Enlightenment France...hmmm. The same anti-Christ reality that sought to destroy the Church in the land still known as the First Daughter of the Catholic Church. THINK ABOUT IT. There is a lot to lose if we get this wrong.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
