Intersession always of how you once behaved
Letter to the Hebrews Seven v- 25 thru 28
25 Therefore, he is always able to save those who approach God through him, since he lives forever to make intercession for them. 26 It was fitting that we should have such a high priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens. 27 He has no need, as did the high priests, to offer sacrifice day after day, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; he did that once for all when he offered himself. 28 For the law appoints men subject to weakness to be high priests, but the word of the oath, which was taken after the law, appoints a son, who has been made perfect forever.
Jesus stood between you and sin once you said yes to Him as your Savior. He intercedes for us sharing the Kingdom of God telling us to go and sin no more. He identifies with your struggle taking upon Himself the punishment that reveals how you become healed. He rids you of shame and the reason why we like to point the finger and blame to remember no more what we disdain living God First over pain. Now you begin to see others struggles especially ones that you’ve been in fights with yourself over the years as we learned to sin no more as we fight the temptations of the world through our practice, prayer and proclamation of living Redeemed. My poetry is His surrendered to this notion of serving others over myself placing mercy at the feet of strangers living ways to sin no more hoping in faith to love over hate no matter the place Heaven to taste. Amen.
Catechist Paragraph 1544 review “Everything that the priesthood of the Old Covenant prefigured finds its fulfillment in Christ Jesus, the “one mediator between God and men.”15 The Christian tradition considers Melchizedek, “priest of God Most High,” as a prefiguration of the priesthood of Christ, the unique “high priest after the order of Melchizedek”;16 “holy, blameless, unstained,”17 “by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified,”18 that is, by the unique sacrifice of the cross.
Catechist Paragraph 1545 review “The redemptive sacrifice of Christ is unique, accomplished once for all; yet it is made present in the Eucharistic sacrifice of the Church. The same is true of the one priesthood of Christ; it is made present through the ministerial priesthood without diminishing the uniqueness of Christ’s priesthood: “Only Christ is the true priest, the others being only his ministers.”19
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day. Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,

**Intersession always of how you once behaved**
In Jesus God approached you are saved
Intersession always of how you once behaved
Priest High fitting sharing Paul described why we pray
Heavens above sinner separated undefiled innocent holy without dismay
Day-after-day sacrifice needed no more as shame
Sins own first people sins then of disdain
Himself offered as a complete offering once and for all would gain
Forever perfect Son of man appointed over the law oath He forever remains
