Earlier today, vice president and senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty Lori Windham announced that “the government has seen the light and has abandoned its attempt to force an Oklahoma hospital to blow out a small candle or stop serving elderly, disabled, and low-income patients.” 

“The government knew it was playing with fire — today it announced its decision to allow the living flame so Saint Francis can continue to serve God and its community, as it always has.” 

As previously reported by LifeSiteNews, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) ordered Saint Francis Health System to extinguish two sanctuary candles at two of the group’s hospitals in February, threatening to revoke accreditation and federal funding. …

Why? How did the feds find out about the candles? Are these literal candles? Biden is nuts! Pure and simple! Help LORD! YOUR children need YOU! In JESUS NAME! Today I watched an explanation of the cultural marxism we are experiencing by James Lindsay, and he broke it down to layman’s terms. Being a history teacher, I understood about marxism for the working classes, but did not understand how cultural marxism operated. Please watch this 🙏 so we can understand what exactly is going on in America and around the world, and how to pray! Please listen to it and share it. Thank you saints. https://youtu.be/Aviyl1eiC1s

Lord Jesus, thank you for hearing the prayers of your people. I pray that religious freedom may continue, even thrive in this country despite the government’s efforts to stifle it. Our country was built on the free expression of religious beliefs; may we never take this and other rights for granted. I pray not only for our president but also for other officials in not only federal but also in state and local government.

On the surface, this is NOT a case of Religious Freedom,
This is worse than that! It seems that Joe Biden was thrown out of the American Catholic Church for making money from Abortions in the USA. He was warned repeatedly by the Consuls and would not stop..
He made an appointment to talk to the Pope to get reinstated. When he got there the Pope refused to talk with him (which is the correct procedure.)
Biden told the world that he saw the Pope and was reinstated to the Catholic Church in the USA, THAT WAS A LIE. He then, lied at his Oath of office, as President.
These little hits against the Catholic Church were kind of like hitting back at the church. What he did was a great sin! He then proceeded making more money from the USA paying for abortions here with our money. I believe that a person who would lie about their eternal soul, would have no problems lying about anything.
GOD BLESS AMERICA, and our right to serve the Lord as we each see it.
This is the true story of the incident. It has been on line and Judicial Watch also has details about it.

How shall we pray about this?? For a continuance of our laws that we each have religious freedom in the United States

Blessed be the Name of the Lord! We here on the Island of Guam, in the Western Pacific, “Where America’s Day Begins!” rejoice with this victory from the darkness permeating our Nation, most notably in and from the White House! In Jesus’ Mighty Name!

Lord thank You for Your help in this situation. Father God please help in more cases where the government tries to manipulate people of faith. May those who believe in You serve You and others without harassment from any trouble-makers. Amen.
