Blood and Water Album

Greetings!  Today I will be recording a song for our Blood and Water album called Consuming Fire.  I will play it on the classical guitar.  We have a home studio in our condo and will use Garage Band on Cyndie's Mac laptop.  I have a solo concert today in Langley at 2:30 pm.  We will hopefully make a holy hour of Eucharistic adoration tonight at Corpus Christi church in Vancouver.

The Lord calls us to be holy as he is holy.  Jesus calls us to be perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect.  This means we must let go of our attachment to all sin, even venial sin, if we wish to arrive at spiritual perfection and complete sanctity.  The saints, like St. Faustina, St. Therese and St. Francis of Assisi and St. Catherine of Siena, all lived a live of prayer, penance and holiness.

We heard from a man in the Philippines who asked us to send him 10 MML promotional posters, so I had them printed at Staples and we designed them ourselves.  It would be great to see the Missionaries of Merciful Love take root in the Philippines.  One of my sister-in-laws is from the Philippines, Manila.   Cyndie has visited there and I would love to visit sometime.

Have a great day!

Greetings!  We are happy to announce that we will have a Song of the Lamb concert at St. Peter's parish in New Westminster on October 13th at 7 pm.  I have to confirm the date today.  Free admission.  We will play all original Christian songs.  I have a concert today in South Delta in the Tswwassen area.  Tonight we will attend the St. Francis de Sales charismatic prayer meeting at 7:30 pm.  We are called by our MML rule to renew the church through prayer, fasting and witness.  Prayer and fasting drives away the evil one and brings us closer to the Lord.

We defeat satan through prayer, fasting and the witness of our life and testimony of how Jesus saved us from our sins.  One good fast is on bread and water on Wednesdays and Fridays. Tomorrow we will make a holy hour of Eucharistic adoration at our parish after the morning mass.  As Missionaries of Merciful Love we are called to, if possible, make a holy hour every week at an adoration chapel.  We are blessed to have a chapel of adoration at Corpus Christi parish in Vancouver, a short drive for us.

In September Cyndie and I will resume editing my memoir, Merciful Love in My Life.  I am hoping to publish it some time in 2019 as a paperback, e-book and audio book.  The paperback will sell for $15 plus $3 shipping.  email us at if you would like to get on our mailing list and be informed when the book is ready to buy.

God bless you!

Welcome to my Blog!

Welcome to my new blog!  Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  She was taken up, body and soul, into Heaven where she reigns as Queen of Heaven, Queen of Angels and Saints and our Queen.

Today I have a concert in Burnaby. Tonight we are having our friend Jewel Jasmins over for supper.  She has been a friend of mine for many years, going back to the time when I was with the Secular Franciscan order at St. Francis of Assisi church in Vancouver.

I am building our music site for Song of the Lamb, our acoustic duo.   The website is  There is not much of anything on the site right now but stay tuned.

Have a great day!
