St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016

My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.


If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:

Act During this Year of Mercy

The Greatest Commandment is the basis for all the other Bible passages about helping people. This leads to a very overarching definition of love. To love one another includes helping them when they are in-need.

St. Catherine of Siena (b. 1347) Known for her many acts of mercy

Taking Care of Others:  Jesus directs us toward the broad reach of loving others and the divine judgments to come for those who do not. Loving one another is a primary commandment, and thus we would expect discipline when we are not actively following this commandment.

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” (Matthew 25:34-46).

We need to help people God’s way and not allow them to just drift along in the ways of the world. Pray for the intercession of the Holy Spirit. We’ll act out of mercy, love, and helping in the best way.

At Caesarea, there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. (Acts 10:1-2).

Helping others is not about our abilities and strengths, but about God’s direction and empowerment through the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit.



Celebrating the 800th Jubilee (1216-2016) 

Three major Dominican saints are celebrated this week.

Thursday, April 28th is the feast of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort (1673-1716). He was ordained in 1700 in France and entered the third order of Dominicans. He preached  the rosary and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary throughout France.

If you are looking forward to a special spiritual journey, pick up the Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary. The next Preparation period is July 13th for Consecration on the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, August 15th.

April 29th is the feast of St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380). She was born the 24th of 25 children in Siena, Italy. She went on to counsel popes and princes in war-torn Northern Italy. She helped to end the Babylonian Captivity when the pope was in Avignon, France. She died in Rome and is buried there in the church, Santa Maria sopra Minerva. We will visit her on our pilgrimage. Her famous work is The Dialogues and she is a Doctor of the Church, one of the first women so honored.

April 30th is the feast of Pope St. Pius V (1504-1572, pope: 1566-1572). He became a Dominican priest in 1528 and taught in Italy for sixteen years. He spoke and wrote against the Protestant reformation and became inquisitor for Como, Italy.

Pius V became Cardinal, but fell out of favor with Pope Pius IV. He was elected pope after Pius IV and continued the reform of the Church after the Council of Trent. He is famous for seeing in vision the defeat of Islamic forces in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571.

Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)

Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.


Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.


NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

NIMBY = Not In My Backyard!

Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?


In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.


My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!


St. Vincent DePaul Society is not affiliated with the CCNA.

Office of Pope Francis I

Roma, Italia

Dear Your Holiness Pope Francis I:

Would you please come visit the United States among my Catholic and unchurched friends in Glenwood Springs, Colorado (St. Stephen) and East Palo Alto, California (St. Francis of Assisi)?  Your grace, I cannot visit you would you please come here to pray with us?

Attached is a letter I sent to your office last summer. At the time, I realized I could not make an European pilgrimage due to my personal health.

Our parish in East Palo Alto will again be celebrating from Friday the 2nd until dark on Sunday, October 4, 2015, the annual feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. 2013 was my first year in Father Ed’s, Msgr. John, and Pastor Father Larry Goode’s parish and I really had fun.

You would find St. Francis full of life – our parishioners are largely Hispanic, with many Pacific Island (Tongan), Black, White, and Asian-Americans –  in a very poor and relatively crime-ridden neighborhood ironically immediately adjacent to Silicon Valley USA and wealthy corporations like Facebook.

I realize how important your trip to Cuba is, but I urge your group to canonize Father Junipero Serra in Northern California and visit our parishes.

My newest parish is St. Stephen’s – located beautifully about 3 hours west of Denver and some 100 miles west of the North American Continental Divide along the Colorado River and the Amtrak Railroad passenger train line – less than a mile south of the famous hot springs. Pastor Father Bert and Father Joseph have been terrific! This town of 9,000 has only fewer than 800 Catholics.

Thank you for your consideration. I am feeling better already just by knowing you are there for all Catholics and for all of humanity. I shall keep reminding others to continue to pray for you and to take our concerns first in prayer to The Lord.

Sincerely yours,

D. A. F. N. “Buck” Dailey

Chaplin Told by Stanford University Hospital to “Hit the Road” — S. O. S. = Save Our Souls // Death During Surgeries, Excepted

Dateline: Stanford Administration / Physical Security / Spiritual-Religious Care

Bulletin: Tuesday, January 13, 2015 — 2130 hrs. PST

STANFORD’S HOSPITAL – Roman Catholic Chaplin escorted late Tuesday night off the property. Chaplin was unable to perform his vocation and pray with the sick and dying. The Catholic was outed after his backpack and bag of personal belonging were (a) Seized by the hospital employees, (b) Searched without management supervision or written authorization, (c) Told by two security officers that non-Stanford religious clergy were NOT allowed inside their buildings between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.!

This incident has been reported to: (1) The Archdiocese of Denver, (2) Diocese of Reno, and (3) the Archdiocese of San Francisco…

Although university founder Leland Stanford was a Presbyterian, nowadays it seems like Stanford University Hospital and Clinics ‘outlaws and/or discourages’ ordained ministers from praying with and for humans with illnesses [ unless it is done during normal (banker’s) business hours… Go figure … How about saving lives and saving souls … do the ‘Cardinal’ have their priorities and written protocols straight???

Check the facts Jack Stanford… more people die between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. than during any other eight-hour time period!   Death during surgeries, excepted.
