November 10, 2020 Reflection – Pray, pray, pray!
Pray, pray, pray! November 10, 2020 St. Leo the Great, Pope, Doctor of the Church Dear Family of Mary! As of yesterday (November 9, 2020), many groups are praying for nine days for our country, for the honest conclusion to the election process. I felt yesterday that it was a time for nine days of prayer as well. I asked the Our Lady to show me how to pray these nine day and received this entry from St. Faustina’s diary: 1934. On the day of the Assumption of the Mother of God, I did not assist at Holy Mass. The woman doctor did not allow me; but I prayed fervently in my cell. After a short time, I saw the Mother of God, unspeakably beautiful. She said to me, My daughter, what I demand from you is prayer, prayer, and once again prayer, for the world and especially for your country. For nine days receive Holy Communion in atonement and unite yourself closely to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. During these nine days you will stand before God as an offering; always and everywhere, at all times and places, day or night, whenever you wake up, pray in the spirit. In spirit, one can always remain in prayer. (Diary 325) I felt in my heart this was exactly how I should pray for my country. And I felt that we all should and could pray this way for our countries and for the world. As an offering, we could stand before God, always and everywhere, at all time, and places, day or night, whenever we wake up. To pray in the spirit! Our Lady said to us long ago: March 25, 1993 “Dear children! Today like never I call you to pray for peace, for peace in your hearts, peace in your families and peace in the whole world, because Satan wants war, wants lack of peace, wants to destroy all which is good. Therefore, dear children, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Simply put, this is a time for unceasing prayer. Yesterday was the first day of this novena of unceasing prayer. Today we can jump in with both feet. There are countless prayers we could pray, but I think we should be like St. Faustina and pray in the Spirit. We should stand before God as an offering! We should pray, pray, pray! Never let prayer be far from our minds and hearts. Just love Jesus all day and all night! Our Lady needs us to stand with her, interceding for this world that is infected with Satan and his destructive plans for mankind. Stay close to the Blessed Sacrament, Holy Mass, and the Rosary, and pray, pray, pray! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan © Mary TV 2020
