Vatican issues official prayer to St. John Paul II:

Oh, St. John Paul, from the window of heaven, grant us your blessing! Bless the church that you loved and served and guided, courageously leading it along the paths of the world in order to bring Jesus to everyone and everyone to Jesus. Bless the young, who were your great passion. Help them dream again, help them look up high again to find the light that illuminates the paths of life here on earth.

May you bless families, bless each family! You warned of Satan’s assault against this precious and indispensable divine spark that God lit on earth. St. John Paul, with your prayer, may you protect the family and every life that blossoms from the family.

Pray for the whole world, which is still marked by tensions, wars and injustice. You tackled war by invoking dialogue and planting the seeds of love: pray for us so that we may be tireless sowers of peace.

Oh St. John Paul, from heaven’s window, where we see you next to Mary, send God’s blessing down upon us all. Amen.

Most Important pray for Bishops and Priests

Most important pray for Bishops and Priests

From Ivan’s prayer group apparition on 8/24/12.

Friends it is most important to be praying for the Holy Father, Bishops and Priests in this time. Unite your prayers with the Mother of God for her priests sons, that Jesus be formed in them more perfect, and that they come to understand their true identity in Christ.

“Tonight as every day after the meeting with Our Lady, I would like to share with you what is the most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady. Tonight also, Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy and at the beginning as always She greeted us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus, my dear children.’

Then Our Lady extended Her arms and for a while prayed over all of us here. In a special way She prayed over the sick present here. She then blessed all of us with Her Motherly Blessing and blessed all religious articles brought for blessing. I recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families and especially the sick. Our Lady then prayed tonight for a longer time especially for priests, bishops and, in a special way for the Holy Father. Then Our Lady briefly spoke to me alone which remains only between us. Again, I would like to emphasize what is most important, and that is that Our Lady truly prayed for priests, bishops and in a special way for the Holy Father. She also prayed for a longer time over all of us and especially for the sick. You know that tomorrow is the 25th, and on every 25th of the month, Our Lady addresses with Her message for the whole world. We wait for this message tomorrow and we will see what Our Lady desires and asks of us. Thank you.

After that conversation, Our Lady left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting ‘Go in peace, my dear children.’”

Prayer for Priests

O Mary, sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, Mother of sovereign priest and our advocate with the Father, we pray for the holiness of priests and of all those who are destined for the priesthood. Despoil them of self and bind them to Jesus Christ your well beloved Son. Obtain for them an outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit so they will understand their identity, greatness and the unique dignity of their vocation and live solely as priests and victims with Jesus. Our Lady of the cenacle, we beg you to intercede with the Holy Spirit that our world may be renewed by holy and fervent priests, so that your Son will be better known and loved; men will be saved, and God will be glorified for ever and ever. Amen.

Please friends spread the word and pray for them.

Why Medjugorje is Needed for the World-Part I

St. Michael be our defense and protection

Our Lady has indicated on several occasions her purpose for coming to the world. On one occasion she said she came to tell the world the God exists. On another she said to awaken the faith, and that faith in God was becoming extinguished.

She said she has come to help us, to teach us, and to lead us in this time of grace and mercy, to her Son Who is the way, Who is Truth. And without her Son, she said there is no life, and that there is no salvation.

But to get a broad scope of why Medjugorje is necessary for the world I was reminded of this message from Our Lady which she gave to Mirjana in 1982 which was in the early days of the beginning of one of the most extraordinary events ever in the history of man’s existence. Far to many discount the importance of Medjugorje for the world and the purpose of heavens call to humanity. Mirjana describes the event as follows with the message from the Mother of God which sheds some light on some aspects of Church history:

Mirjana spoke of an apparition where satan appeared to her. satan asked Mirjana to renounce the Madonna and follow him. That way she could be happy in love and in life. He said that following the Virgin on the contrary would only lead to suffering. Mirjana rejected him and immediately the Virgin gave her the following message in substance:

“Excuse me for this, but you must realize that satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trail. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the devil, but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating divisions among priests and is responsible for obsessions and murder. You must protect yourselves against these things through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry blessed objects with you. Put them in your home, and restore the use of holy water.”

Mirjana was a young girl at the time of this message and not knowing the history of the Church, which gives its purity to the message.

But what many do not know is that Pope Leo XIII was reported to have a prophetic vision of the same event of satan appearing before the throne of God in 1888, following a Mass he celebrated that morning. Pope Leo XIII became traumatized to the point that he collapsed. Those in attendance thought that he was dead.

After coming to consciousness, the Pope described a frightful conversation that he had heard coming from near the tabernacle. The conversation consisted of two voices – voices which Pope Leo XIII clearly understood to be the voices of Jesus Christ and the devil. The devil boasted that he could destroy the Church if he were granted 75 years to carry out his plan (or 100 years according to some accounts).

The devil also asked permission for a ‘greater influence over those who will give themselves to my service.’ To the devils request, Our Lord reportedly replied; “you will be given the time and the power.”

Shaken deeply by what he had heard, Pope Leo XIII composed the original Prayer to St. Michael and it was ordered to be prayed and recited after all the low Masses as a protection for the Church against the attacks from hell. All parishes, and pastors of parishes should demand this prayer to be prayed for its protection. The prayer is as follows:

ORIGINAL PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL FOR THE CHURCH AND HER MEMBERS

O glorious Archangel St. Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness,, spirits of evil. Come to the aide of man, whom God created immortal, made in his own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together which the holy angels, as already thou has fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any long in heaven. That cruel, that ancient serpent who is called the devil or satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of his Chirst, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.

These crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb and have laid impious hands on her most sacred processions. In the holy place itself, where has been set up the See of the Most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered. Arise then O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to thee God has entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High so that they may quickly conciliate the mercies of the Lord; and beating down the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.

(Hold up the Crucifix and pray)

Behold the Cross of the Lord! Be scattered ye hostile powers + The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has conquered, the root of David + Let thy mercies be upon us O Lord + as we have hoped in thee + O Lord hear my prayer + and let my cry come unto thee + Amen.

I am sure we can see there are many who have handed themselves over to satan freely and how he has great power over them. Pray for the conversion of sinners.

St. Joseph, terror of demons, pray for us!

Do you want God or not? June 2, 2011 Message to Mirjana

Message to Mirjana – June 2, 2011

Look into your hearts dear children....

Dear children,

As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the Living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want.

Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God’s plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am with you; you decide. Thank you.

This is a serious message my friends. I have written on many occasions explaining that everybody is an unbeliever in one way or another. When we lack faith, we are an unbeliever. Today Our Lady is affirming these words. It boils down to do you want God in your life or not. Plain and simple.

We do not comprehend the great grace that has been given to us in this time. Our lady has been with us for 30 years this month. Many of us grew up with her and nothing different that being with her in the world. it is almost a whole lifetime for most.

But Our Lady made it very clear at one time when she said, “when I am gone, you will lament for the message…”

What little importance do we give to her in this time.

How many realize that the sin in this world is so severe that we as a human race are unworthy of the goodness of God in our life. Jesus told St. Faustina that we could not even accept His grace if it weren’t for His love for His creatures, and special help from Him. And here again, the Lord in His goodness has sent His Mother to the earth to warn the people for the LAST TIME.

God keeps bringing to my heart the days of Noah. I do not like to be what many call a dooms dayer, but truth must be spoken here. The day of Justice is near. And by the tone of the Mother of God in this message, and the signs that are being given in the world, there is no doubt there is something looming for the world. What we are experiencing in natural disasters today is nothing and but a small taste of what is to come.

Our Lady said above…“Look around you and see where the world is going…”

Isn’t it obvious? The world is spiraling down into a cesspool of slimy filth. But remember, just like in the days of Noah, the people we still making merry and mocking those who believed until the day Noah entered the Ark, and the doors were closed. And they all perished in the flood.

God is offering a New Ark to His people for this time and for this generation. She is a refuge of Hope with the Ark of the New Covenant; the Mother of God. She once said in my prayer, that “all good things pass through her hands“. It takes wisdom to understand these words.

To keep it simple however, just look at the picture of Our Lady of Grace, and the rays that pour forth from her hands. She is the vessel and worthy spouse of the Holy Spirit. Every grace, every treasure from Heaven, every gift from God passes through her as if she were the bridge to heaven. Jesus once described the abyss that separates God and the Creatures. In this abyss His mercy fills the chasm, but we forget who was there at the cross with him praying.

I once prayed about this, and I saw in the abyss the crucified Christ who was suffering in great agony, and blood was pouring from His wounds upon the earth as the Father was above Him looking only at His Son. But beneath the Lord was Our Lady off to the side. As the Lord agonized all the more in His suffering rays of light burst forth from His wounds and poured out as if filling up the Mother of God, and through Her hands the rays were filled with color that fell upon the earth, and the world lit up like the sun.

He explains the difference here, as through His blood we have been saved, but we forget the cost and the price He paid for our sins, as atonement to the Father in the perfect sacrifice. This justice will have to be addressed in the final day to the Father, if we have not taken the cost of our salvation with seriousness. St. Paul said one must discern the body and his sins before receiving the perfect sacrifice of the altar in the Eucharist. And it is a fact that men receive the Eucharist who never confess their sins, or habitual sinners and taking the Lord for granted.

But with Our Lady in this image with Jesus Crucified, the sacrifice of Jesus united with her suffering softens the just anger of God. For the mother loves her children, her people, and has accepted her vocation in its fullness, and desires to bring the blessing of her Son no matter how bad or disobedient her children are. She wants to clothe them in her grace, redress them, clean them up, to make them presentable to the loving Father.

But my friends, guess what we are doing, when we do not accept this grace from Heaven and do not put to life her messages, or as the Blessed Mother just said “do not choose God’s way in this time”?

We are shoving the holy Mother aside as if to say she is not important enough, and boldly approach His Majesty, the King, the Almighty God alone without an advocate to come to our aide. And the ancient custom for this was death! WOE TO THE ONE WHO IGNORES HIS MOTHER!

This is a gift from heaven dear people of God, and those who claim to be God’s people. How would it be for you if you handed a gift to someone and they looked at you in the eyes, and threw the gift aside and said, “Oh, that’s nice…” and then just put it on the shelf or throw it away, ignoring the giver of the gift, and what was in the box!

Do we realize what we are doing? Stupid, stupid people! Wake up!

Why can’t we see this my friends. Why do we choose to ignore the abomination of sin and do nothing about it and remain silent? What is wrong with us?

Many may say that they go to confession, and are living out their faith in the best way. I see and hear this all the time. And I see at the same time the same people boasting in themselves because they are in their “own eyes” proudly living their faith. And I see the same people judging others because they are not like them.

But to hear these words of the Mother of God, it is not enough to talk about the faith or study the faith, it must be lived. There is a level of conversion she wants to bring us to, and she is very FIRM IN HER WORDS, THIS GENERATION OF PEOPLE ARE NOT THERE YET, as much as we like to think we are. And this generation is not speaking out boldly against sin.

We need to hear our priests preach the gospel. Not just tell stories that have nothing to do with the gospel. Jesus said PREACH THE GOSPEL dear apostles. We the lay need to be fed the living Word of God. Preach it boldly! And call sin what it is, SIN! Sin is an abomination to God. God hates sin…loves the sinner but hates sin. Jesus was kind, but when sin was committed He called it out, and shut it down! Then families can take what is preached into the home, and teach these children to be children of God. There is no more room for error. We all have a part in this plan. It’s time to buck up and walk the talk!

The human race is at emnity with its Creator, and is choosing to be its own God. You heard it above from the Mother herself, who of course does not speak on her own, but is sent from God to convey the Word.

It is sickening to me to see how people react when I bring up Medjugorje. Some say they want to wait until the Church approves it. For you dear friends who think this way…I will say to you boldly – it will be too late! The Blessed Mother has made that very clear. She said, “DO NOT WAIT, FOR THE UNBELIEVERS IT WILL BE TOO LATE.” If you choose to wait, and not to believe, you are counted among this number that she speaks of as “unbeliever.” There is no gray here. It will be too late.

Do we know that the apparitions of Rue de Bac have never been approved by the Church to this day, but we all still wear the miraculous medals? Are you still waiting for the approval of this? But the visionary St. Catherine was made a saint, the medal was struck in her time, and it was worn, and miracles occurred.

A Cardinal just recently said, that the pastoral plan of the Mother of God is not always the same as the Theological plan of the Church; (Lourdes for example). But the Church did adapt the plan, and still today people still come to Lourdes France right?

Today the pastoral service of the Church is to serve the people of God and help support pilgrims coming to Medjugorje. He said that Blessed Mother is giving practical guidelines to living out the Christian vocation. And that the Mother of God is THE PERFECT THEOLOGIAN. He affirmed that the Church cannot exclude Medjugorje but provide the pastoral support that it needs. These apparitions will not be approved until the apparitions cease or a visionary dies. Neither of these have happened yet. Cardinal Schonborn advised that God’s people need to be patient as God has been patient with us for these 30 years.

Parishes and diocese should help give pastoral support to those called to go to Medjugorje. This is declared from the Church.

Well, is God’s patience running thin? I think we only need to hear this message and practically think, YES IS THE APPROPRIATE WORD! I can see my self in this parental role telling my own child, when I have had enough of the antics boldly saying to them. Here it is. This is your choice right now. You either decide to do such and such or not. If you do not, I cannot help you and you are on your own. If you do what I suggest, then I can help you this way. From there, the child needs to decide.

This is where the Mother of God has left it for you. Not for the one next door, not for the one in the other city. It is for you dear reader. You decide.

The apostles taught about what Jesus was going to do to the Lawless one. This is the one who does not live the Law “the Commandments of God.” But is one who puts himself above the law, declaring he is a god, who in truth comes from satan. If we are seeing in truth, I think we can recognize many lawless ones in our midst who are declaring their own laws for the people. But the Lord will kill them with His breath. This same scripture says, that those who in alliance with this lawless one, the Lord has sent upon them a deceiving spirit that they would believe the lie. (2 Thes. 2)

Do we see what is happening here? The Blessed Mother says she is bringing with her the Spirit of Truth, that is the Holy Spirit that Jesus spoke of in John 14 and 15. She wants us to have the truth and to see the truth. Jesus said the world does not know the truth, but when the Holy Spirit comes He will convict the world in truth and remind us of all that He taught us.

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord. Today marks the beginning of the novena to the Holy Spirit, for the Day of Pentecost. My dear friends. beg the Father to send the Holy Spirit of Truth. We need it more than ever! And offer a Fast and renunciation that He may come to your spirit house in your body, that you may be a fit sacrifice to God. Ave Maria!

Come Holy Spirit, come!

“Christ’s call to conversion continues to resound in the lives of Christians. The “second conversion” is an uninterrupted task for the whole Church who ‘clasping sinners to her bosom is at once holy and always in need of purification, and follows constantly the path of penance and renewal. This endeavor of conversion is not just a human work. It is the movement of a ‘contrite heart’ drawn and moved by grace to respond to the merciful love of God who loved us first.” (CCC 1428, Ps. 51:17, Jn.6:44, 12:32, 1 Jn. 4:10)

Rosary Novena for Unbelievers-Joyful Mysteries

I give my Son to you

Always begin prayer to the Holy Spirit….

Follow the normal instructions on the rosary beads and use the following meditations for reflection in prayer.

Come Holy Spirit…

Creed
Lord God our Father, Father of love together with Mary our dear Mother, your faithful servant and mother of love. I adore you today father together with Her I have decided to pray to you for all those who have not yet discovered your Fatherly love and for those who do not believe in your mercy. I pray to you for those who have distanced themselves from you. I pray for those who believe in you but who live as unbelievers because they have not experienced your fatherly love. Together with Blessed Mother I ask you to send your Holy Spirit upon me. Holy Spirit lead me in prayer and reveal his love to me so that my heart and my soul may be completely immersed in your love. Grant that I may be purified and healed in your love. Grant that I may be able to offer all of my prayers with love for my brothers and sisters who have not yet experienced your love.

Blessed Mother you have called me to pray today for those who do not know the love of God. Together with you, I offer this novena of prayer for your intentions, and for the conversion of sinners.

(Reflect on the meditation of Our Lady’s message for each day)

Day 1 “Dear children, this is a time of grace. Open yourselves to the Holy Spirit, for the Holy Spirit to make you strong. Your Mother, dear children wants especially to call you in this time to prayer and to sacrifice.” (6/1/90)

Day 2 “Dear children! Today I invite you to live peace in your hearts and families. There is no peace, little children where there is no prayer, and there is no love where there no faith. Therefore little children, I invite you all to decide again today for conversion. I am close to you and I invite you all little children, into my embrace to help you, but you do not want it, and so satan is tempting you, and in the smallest things your faith disappears. This is why little children pray and through prayer you will have blessing and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (3/25/95)

Day 3 “Dear children! Do not forget that you are here on earth on the way to eternity and that your home is in Heaven. That is why little children, be open to God’s love and leave egoism and sin. May your joy be only in discovering God in daily prayer. That is why, make good use of this time and pray, pray, pray and God is near to you in prayer and through prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (7/25/2000)

Day 4 “Dear children! I desire to share my joy with you. In my Immaculate Heart I feel that there are many of those who have drawn closer to me and are in a special way carrying the victory of my Immaculate Heart in their hearts by praying and converting. I desire to thank you and to inspire you to work even more for God and His Kingdom with love and the power of the Holy Spirit. I am with you and I bless you with my Motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (8/25/2000)

Day 5 “Dear children! Today I call you through prayer and sacrifice to prepare yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Little children this is a time of grace and so again I call you to decide for God the Creator. All Him to transform and change you. May your heart be prepared to listen to and live everything which the Holy Spirit has in His plan for each of you. Little children, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (5/25/98)

Day 6 “Dear children, I am with you to take you all to my Son. I wish to bring you all to salvation. Follow me, because only in this way will you be able to find rue peace and happiness. My little children, come with me.” (5/2/2005)

Day 7 “There is no way without my Son. Do not think that you will have peace and joy if you do not have Him in the first place.” (6/2/2006)

“Dear children, God created you with free will to comprehend and to choose life or death. I as a Mother with motherly love desire to help you to comprehend and to choose life. My children, do not deceive yourselves with false peace and false joy. Permit me my children, to show you the true way, the way that leads to life-to my Son. Thank you.” (7/2/2006)

Day 8 “Dear children, with this message I call you to pray for peace. Particularly now when peace is in crisis, you be those who pray and bear witness to peace. Little children, be peace in this peaceless world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (1/25/2003)

Day 9 “Dear children, here is my Son in my arms! I would like to ask you to be a light for all in the year to come. I would like to call you again to live the messages, those are messages of peace, conversion, prayer, penance and faith. Dear children, your Mother does not ask words from you, I ask for deeds. Your Mother will help you and She will give you the strength to continue. And tonight I would like to tell you; rejoice!” (12/25/89)

Joyful Mysteries

First Joyful Mystery Annunciation of the Lord –
Thank you Father for the love you have for your creatures, and especially for the love you have for Blessed Mother. Thank you for choosing her to be the Mother of your Son, and giving her to the world as a gift to your people. We thank you Father for her obedience and witness of faith, and for her trust in you that she said yes to your plan for the salvation of man. Blessed Mother I too want to thank you for your Fiat to God for our sake, and offering your body for the salvation of souls, which brought the redemption of mankind into the world. I remember now the call you have made to us your children saying,

“Dear children! Today I invite you to comprehend your Christian vocation. Little children, I led and am leading you through this time of grace, that you may become conscious of your Christian vocation. Holy martyrs died witnessing, ‘I am a Christian and love God over everything.’ Little children, today also I invite you to rejoice and be joyful Christians, responsible and conscious that God called you in a special way to be joyfully extended hands towards those who do not believe, and through the example of your life, they may receive faith and love for God. Therefore, pray, pray, pray that your heart may open and be sensitive for the Word of God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (11/25/97)

Today I pray with you and I ask you to help me to comprehend my Christian vocation, realizing that the saints before me have died witnessing for the love of God. I pray that my heart will be open and sensitive to the word of God that I may as you asked, responsible and joyful witness as your extended hands toward those who do not believe, and by my example that they may receive faith and love for God.

Second Joyful Mystery – The visitation

Blessed Mother with joyful expectation you traveled in haste to your relatives expecting to receive confirmation of the Word of God through his holy angel. Overwhelmed with joy the Holy Spirit filled you and St. Elizabeth while exalting and giving glory to God for our redemption has come to the world! Dear mother, we ask you now to bring your visitation into our families and into our home, our parishes, workplaces, and to our prayer groups. Visit all parents and all children so that they may experience God’s love for them. Let this experience over come their hearts and change hearts so that love may dwell among all men and birth the foundation of peace. May the experience of the love of God bring healing in the hearts of parents and children, and husbands and wives, and may they live in peace. I remember your words when you said,

“Dear children, today I invite you all to awaken your hearts to love. Go into nature and look how nature is awakening and it will be a help for you to open your hearts to the love of God the Creator. I desire you to awaken love in your families so that where there is unrest and hatred, love will reign and when there is love in your hearts, then there is also prayer. And dear children, do not forget that I am with you and I am helping you with my prayer that God may give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with my Motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (4/25/93)

Dear mother with you I pray that my heart is awakened to the love of God and that I will glorify Him in His creation. Teach me how to love, and how to awaken love in my family especially where we are lacking peace in our home, so that love will reign and give birth to prayer. I thank you dear mother for reminding me that you are with me, and that you are praying for me to the Father that I may have strength to live the call you are giving me today.

Third Joyful Mystery – The Nativity of the Lord

Thank you Father for letting the world experience your love through the birth of your Son Jesus Christ into the world. Be blessed and glorified through all the hearts that recognize your love in this great mystery of the infant born of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We bless you Father and praise you for revealing yourself in such poverty and in such a simple way and for the opening of many hearts to your love in His poverty at birth.

Dear Father, we pray now with Blessed Mother for all expectant mothers with their husbands that they will accept their unborn children with love as Our Lady accepted your Son with love. May your love heal the hearts of pregnant women who want to reject their children through abortion. With your love Father, grant that they may expect their child with your love and accept this great gift with joy. May all newborn infants experience your love through the love of their parents. And for all those who have been denied the love of father or mother; grant them healing and that they will open their hearts to your love through the goodness of others.
Blessed Mother I remember when you said,

“Dear children! Today in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you dear children, during your life sustained because of the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus’ passion and death on the cross, you will understand that only through prayer you too can become true apostles of faith, when in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (3/25/97)

Dear mother, today I decide to forgive my parents and family members (name them each here) for all the hurt that has been caused to me, and I ask for the perfect love of Jesus to come into the areas of my heart where pain has been caused. I understand that there are many in this world in need of this great healing of faith, to come to know the love of the Father. I pray that through the passion and death of Jesus on the cross it will help me to understand that I also can be an apostle of faith and a witness to love. Obtain for me the grace I need to become a light of your presence today.

Fourth Joyful Mystery – Presentation in the Temple

Thank you Blessed Mother with St. Joseph for presenting your Son in the temple and being obedient to your faith and the law of Moses, and for the old man Simeon who experienced the love of God and constantly gave praise and glory to God in the temple.

Dear Father in heaven, together with Blessed Mother we present all those who pray to be open to your love, we pray for the Holy Father, and all bishops and priests, religious brothers and sisters. Grant that their lives be filled with your love and may help others to come to experience your love.

We also offer you all those who know they need to pray but do not because they lack love. Touch their hearts so that they may be open, and overcome with your immeasurable love. I remember when you said dear Mother that you want to present each of us to God;

“Dear children, I have been inviting you for years by these messages which I am giving you. Little children, by means of the message I wish to make a very beautiful mosaic in your heart so I may be able to present each one of you to God like the original image. Therefore, little children I desire that your decisions be free before God, because He has given you freedom. Therefore, pray so that, free from any influence of satan, you may decide only for God. I am praying for you before God and I am seeking your surrender to God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (11/25/89)

Dear mother, I accept your invitation and I renew my yes to you again today. I thank you for your constant love and protection, and for your desire to see me in heaven with you, and for God’s desire to make me a new creation in Him. I choose to love God freely this day and for my life. Dear Father, with Blessed Mother I ask to be free of temptations that my decisions may always be for the good. Please hear the prayers of Blessed Mother on my behalf. I surrender all things to you.

Fifth Joyful Mystery – The Finding of the child Jesus in the Temple

Blessed Mother, with St. Joseph you experienced deep sorrow at the lose of Jesus your Son in the temple, but your sorrow quickly turned to joy when you found him again. You searched with love and joy and He was found. Your apparitions are a sign of love that you are looking for us too, and your prayer is proof of your desire to help all of us to experience God’s love.

With you dear mother I pray for all those who have lost faith, hope and love, and for those who do not have peace or joy in their hearts. Obtain for them dear mother a new love, a new hope, a new faith, a new joy and a new profound peace of heart. I pray especially for the young people who do not experience love in their families and consequently look for love in the wrong way. Your concern is great for the young people for you said,

“Dear children, I again ask you to pray for all the young people of the world because they find themselves in a difficult situation. You can help them with your love and prayers of the heart…decide for God these days. You young people, put God in the first place in your life thus you will have with Him a way that is sure. I invite you to pray for my intention for peace.” (1992)

Dear Mother, I pray with you to the Father for all the young people of the world and I ask for the gift of love to love them with a tender love that they need and that my prayers of the heart will help them obtain the love they need. Strengthen the spirit of the youth today that they will choose to put God in the first place in their life, for a future full of hope, and decide for peace.

Closing Prayer:God my Father hear the prayers we offer you today with Blessed Mother. Manifest your love to all who seek it, especially to those who do not know your love, so that the entire world may be overcome with love. We ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ your Son. Come Holy Spirit and renew the face of the earth and the hearts of men.

Pope: Parishes Help Families

God wants to convert the world through my coming...

Wow, the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI addresses the family and the need for parishes to help families grow in their faith.

My friends, see where we are today. There is no mistake. This message from the Holy Father is just days after Our Lady spoke to the world stating that she is praying that we comprehend that we are God’s family. Above all, the universal Church, the parish families, and the domestic church are all united in the same Jesus Christ.
Below are the words of the Holy Father posted on 1/9/2011….

“The collaboration between the Christian community and the family is much needed in the current social context in which the institution of the family is threatened from many sides and finds itself faced with many difficulties in its mission to teach the faith,” he said. “The disappearance of stable cultural references and the rapid transformation that society continually undergoes, make the educational task truly difficult.

“Therefore, it is necessary that parishes increasingly strive to support families, the little domestic Churches, in their work of passing on the faith.” (Zenit News Source-1/9/2011)

Families must be formed anew in their faith. It is like a generation lost in the faith because there has been little or no formation in the homes. And yet I have already said, that Our Lady has spoken several times of the severity and the seriousness of the responsibility of parents to raise their children under the precepts of God.

Parishes should seek new ways to awaken the faith for their families. To find ways to draw couples and their children, deeper into heart to heart union with God.

Families must pray together, especially the rosary, to begin stirring up those sacramental graces that was gifted to husband and wife on their wedding day. The graces are there my friends. But they are dormant, because husbands and wives do not know their own faith, to hand it down to their children.

This is where the parish needs to step in and provide those opportunities. It is not enough to just to have topical speakers come in; more is needed. Parents need solid food, hard core solid Catholic formation. It is an urgency!

And I know most of you agree with me, because I talk with parents all the time about it. The kids are not getting the formation needed in the Catholic Schools and certainly not in public schools, because it is against the law so to say to mention the name of God. Many children in the Catholic Schools do not even believe there is a God.

Jesus is like Santa Claus to children, and of course as they get older, it is not cool to believe in Santa, so why would they believe in Jesus? There is no relationship!

We’ve developed a program called Holy Family Workshop to help awaken the hearts of couples, first to understand their own marriage sacrament, and then the importance of bringing the grace of their marital love in the home to their children. This formation teaches couples to pray together as husband and wife with listening ears, surrendering to the other, to help build the foundation of faith in Jesus Christ.

So many couples are just going through the motions, of attending mass, praying in church, thinking they are meeting their obligation with God, and then leave the holy Mass only to return to their same old routines. They have no concept of why they must go to mass on Sunday, nor do they see the value of holy Mass. It is routine to most, and the life of the spirit is all but lost in most parishes. Couples have no idea that the modern lifestyle in the world is opposed to God’s plan for the human family.

The Mother of God said very clearly to the world, “parents are teaching their children the wrong way…the youth are in a very difficult situation.”

Folks, this is heaven saying “we have it all wrong.”

We need to return back to the basics, the original foundation as I have said. God must be in the first place at the center of the family once more. Career cannot come first, sports cannot come first, vacations cannot come first. God must be priority! Your vocation is of second importance, then your children, then the rest to follow. We are a disordered culture.

The Holy Family is the first model to study as the perfect human family, as was given in the former articles related to the call of Fatima. Their simple, silent and hidden life speaks volumes to the world and the call to the human family.

And now we have the Vicar of Christ Himself, the official voice of God speaking to the world, calling parishes to help the families! Yes dear friends, the time is now, to start forming families with the proper tools needed to live out the vocation that about 90% of the church’s population consists of.

As I have said, Blessed Mother is rolling up her sleeves, and about to do some serious house cleaning and rearranging the Palace of God. First the interior temple must be set right, and stripped of sin. Then it must be lived out in every day life, especially in the homes where you live.

May I also echo the words of the great encyclical of our modern time, Humanae Vitae, and its call to “Christian Husband and Wives. Pp 25” The document says….

“Christian married couples then docile to her voice [that is the voice of the Church] must remember that their Christian vocation, which began at baptism, is further specified and reinforced by the sacrament of matrimony. By it husband and wife are strengthened and as it were consecrated for the faithful accomplishment of their proper duties, for the carrying out of their proper vocation even to perfection and the Christian witness which is proper to them before the whole world. To them the Lord entrusts the task of making visible to men the holiness and sweetness of the law which unites the mutual love of husband and wife with their cooperation with the love of God, the author of human life.

We do not intend to hide at all the sometimes serious difficulties inherent in the life of Christian married persons, for them as for everyone else, ‘the gate is narrow and they way is hard, that leads to life. But the hope of that life must illuminate their way as with courage they strove to live with wisdom, justice and piety in this present time, knowing that the figure of this world passes away.

Let married couples then face up to the efforts needed supported by the faith and hope which ‘do not disappoint … because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Let them implore divine assistance by persevering prayer, above all let them draw from the source of grace and charity in the Eucharist. And if sin should still keep its hold over them, let the not be discouraged, but rather have recourse with humble perseverance to the mercy of God, which is poured the fullness of conjugal life described by the Apostle; ‘husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church … husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it as Christ does the Church, this is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the Church. However let each on of you love his wife as himself and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

Let us look at this a little closer. The encyclical states here paragraph 25 the power of the sacrament of holy matrimony, husbands and wives receive a special grace that strengthens not only the marriage union, but also strengthens them to live out their proper vocation as witnesses in the world.

God entrusts husbands and wives; a man and a woman who live under the law of obedience to the covenant they joined and professed by a vow in the presence of God to make visible the sign of His divine love in their cooperation with grace. That is couples must bring to life that which had been given to them as gift and use the gift for the greater glory of God. Most couples are not fulfilling their vow to this order. I warn couples though, God does not forget the vow. It is sealed in the blood covenant of Jesus Christ that was offered during your mass at your marriage.

If a marriage; or a man and a woman who are joined in marriage as one, do not have Jesus Christ as the golden thread between them, who is the true foundation of faith, then the once tied knot of love will become unraveled, and the rope of love will become frayed and fall apart; hence the division and the sins of marriage creep in, and the weakening of nature of man’s humanity will succumb to great temptations which will jeopardize the marriage union.

It is not easy for anyone to vow their lives to another for life, and many couples enter into this union blind without knowledge of the great responsibility set before them in the eyes of God. It’s not even a matter of dishonoring the vows to each other, but the adulterous act is committed against God Himself.

Today we are witness of the faltering state of marriage and family live, reaping the sour fruit of the broken covenantal laws of God.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains in great detail what happens to marriage when sin is manifested in the covenantal union between a man and a woman, in paragraphs 1606-08. The union is always threatened by discord, a spirit of domination, infidelity, jealousy, conflicts which ultimately will escalate into hatreds, separation and disorder. These threats are the result of the couples “break with God” and the covenant which was vowed to God.

Dear friends I do not preach what I do not live. I am speaking from experience as one who has lived to tell it all, and the effects of sin against the sacrament of marriage. We have suffered for 19 years as we looked back to see where it all went wrong. And the Lord in His mercy gave us a birds eye view of all that we have done and the sins committed in our marriage covenant, leaving us with no other option but to tear down what we had once built on sand, to laying a new foundation in Jesus Christ.

I can honestly say as all has come to light, our own sacrament of marriage was made a mockery from the day we said I do at the altar by our act of the will and the decisions we made compromising in sin.

We never gave consideration to what was ahead of us, or did we ever really care that we were offending God, and lived for the party alone. Our marriage was built on selfishness wants and goals. To the depth of my soul, if I knew then what I know now, who knows how things would have been through these past 19 years of marriage. None the less, our experience is a witness of what not to do for married couples.

We had committed every sin against the sacrament itself. However, not only have we suffered the consequences of our sins, but our children have bared the same consequences and have suffered greatly.

The Lord in His mercy, which my friends, is the greatest treasure and mystery known to man, and in it I cling to His merciful heart, for if he were not a merciful God, I should surely be dead and steeped into the pit of hell. It was the Lord who willed the life of our souls, and to this day is using us to be a sign and a witness to the world, one not only to say that God exists, but how He can resurrect to new life what was once thought lost!

The document above said of couples, “Let them implore divine assistance by persevering in prayer, and above all, let them draw from the source of grace and charity in the Eucharist…”

Hours upon hours I spent with the Lord in the most Blessed Sacrament, attending daily mass for over 15 + years and clinging to life as my soul was being refined and purified in the fire. I only had the Lord to look to, for I found no consolation in human love. I was left to myself before my God, in the misery of my sins, knowing that what I had endured through my married life could have been avoided had I been obedient to God and His commandments and sought after holiness in virtue.

Yet all the more, I also witnessed the state of my husband’s soul, who as head of the home was leading his family to the path of hell. I was given a choice by God, to offer my life for the salvation of souls in reparation for sins, not only my sins, but the sins of my husband, and sins against our marriage, and the future of my children. A great act of mercy by the Lord for one who was swimming in misery.

I gave my yes, Our Lady took charge of me, and from there all hell was leashed against me, and the battle began. I will not speak of gory details, as most have been brought to the sacrament of reconciliation, but to witness life after death alone. I spent the greater portion of my marriage suffering from spousal physical abuse, and in its final hour I experienced the crucifixion the day I was put in the hospital with a neck injury, only to find my husband at the foot of the bed in prayer. I heard the words in my soul, “it is finished.” Now his conversion was about to begin.

Therefore I speak clearly from experience, living the Word of God which was fully flesh of my flesh. I lived on a promise by God that we would be restored and as new creatures, built now on Rock. (Mt. 7, Luke 6:48-49) I never knew when this day would come, but the Lord continued to encourage me and hold me up and make up for the love I was not receiving in human terms.

I learned through this journey that not only was I suffering for my own marriage, but for the sacrament of marriage itself, as I know that our marriage is not the only one who has suffered in this way. Ours is on the recovery.

Yes my friends, I could have easily chosen to divorce my spouse and have my children live the effects of divorced parents. I had every ground to do so. But I was living the effects of divorce already as my husband was a product of an abusive divorce situation. It is what he knew about marriage and the only example he was given in his childhood.

The Lord gave me compassion for him. I knew he was not able to love me, as he was in his condition, I had to be the example for him, because he did not know how to love me, but Jesus did. I had to allow Jesus in me to love him through me. In His mercy the Lord begged me to stay on the cross with my husband, and persevere for the sake of his soul. I had to trust that Jesus was doing something in him, even though I was not seeing it visibly.

I believed in the power of sacramental grace. I had parents who were witnesses for me, who have been married for 50 years now. I witnessed how they had overcome countless trials and tribulations in their lives and still all is imperfect and always will be, because we are human and to error is human-to forgive is divine. Their witness, my faith, and the power of God kept me on the cross, as one with Jesus.

And from this, I am witnessing the power of the resurrection, and the countless miracles of God’s mercy and love for us, who now is leading us into the promise land, and rebuilding our souls, and souls of our children.

I never thought I could love this man again. But Jesus continues to teach me about divine love, the love that only comes from God. I had to learn this love by experience, not in word, but in deed.

The love that drove him to the cross knowing what would happen to him. It is Christ from whom I draw my strength, and His love moved me to the cross with him. I did not run, I did not flee but allowed the crucifixion to occur in my soul, dying to self for the sake of the other.

It is not easy to lay this out for the world to see. Maybe you are one who may say, this is too intense. Well maybe so for you, because you are not perfect in love yet nor have you had the grace to experience as such. I have confidence in the Lord enough to know however that He will make up for what I am lacking, and the hope to say I hope He is touching hearts by this witness.

I know who I am, and I know I still have a long journey to walk, but the journey I walk is in the embraced of the eternal lover, Jesus Christ.

I make this point to say clearly this is the state of marriage today. It is also the state of the marriage union with Jesus Christ and his bride, who continues to inflict wound upon wound on His mystical body.

Parishes need to help support marriages said the holy Father. Marriages are threatened by so many facets in the world as he stated. I speak from experience having been to countless parishes in this country. There is a great need for martial spiritual direction, a need for healing and deliverance ministry, and renewal of love in the marriage sacrament.

I am living witness to the power of sacramental grace and divine mercy. We have also been given the grace to counsel many couples who suffer in multiple ways in shared experiences. The only answer is ‘press into the cross’ as Jesus did my friends.

I must note, that there are some situations where there is the threat of life of a spouse. Seek help and bring the situation to light. Be silent no more oh brave soul. No one soul needs to hide in shame any longer. There is mercy, and there is new life.

As I further go on to say in short to continue with the voice of the Church through the encyclical of Humane Vitae, pp 26, the document encourages couples to work with couples and to communicate their experiences to others. Holy Father Pope Paul VI said as such:

“Among the fruits which ripen forth from a generous effort of fidelity to the divine law, one of the most precious is that married couples themselves not infrequently feel the desire to communicate their experiences to others. Thurs there comes to be included in the vast pattern of the vocation of the laity a new and most noteworthy form of the apostolic of like to like; it is married couples themselves who become apostles and guides to other married couples. This is assuredly among so many forms of apostolate, one of those which seem most opportune today.”

Parishes must be open to allow the laity especially couples to work together to help build up once more the marriage sacrament in the plan of God. Couples who can share their experiences of the trials, sufferings and truths of married and family life, especially with young couples who encounter the sacrament with stars in their eyes.

Since the laity make up the greater portion of the Church, great emphasis must be placed in helping marriage and the family life and to help once more give birth to the Holy Spirit who wants to be present in the family.

I will conclude on the words of the Mother of God… who said:

“Dear children, tonight also your Mother is warning that satan is at work. I would like you to pay special attention to the fact that satan is at work in a special way with the young. Dear children, during this period I would like you to pray in your families with your children. I would like you to talk with your children. I would like you to exchange your experiences and help them to solve all their problems. I will pray, dear children, for the young, for all of you. Pray, dear children. Prayer is medicine that heals.” (9/9/88)

Begin today my friends. Pray in your families especially with your children. Begin to strengthen their spirits to fight against satan who is seeking to devour their souls. And be honest and open with them, sharing your experiences and how you have learned from your past mistakes. Help form their conscience, and teach them that God is fully alive!

Ave Maria!
