February 1, 2024 Reflection – Have great devotion to the good angel!

(Our Lady being escorted to Heaven by her angels!!) Have great devotion to the good angel!   February 1, 2024 Dear Family of Mary! Denis and I have been reading a biography of Padre Pio. And yesterday we came across this extraordinary advice that Padre Pio wrote to one of his spiritual daughters, Anita Rodote, in 1915. As I read Padre Pio’s words I was just filled with joy and elation! At last I was able to understand the immense gift each one of us receives at conception! We are given our very own Guardian Angel for life!! I want to share the advice Padre Pio gave to Anita. I am sure it will ignite the same joy in your hearts. Padre Pio wrote: “Have great devotion…to this good angel. How consoling it is to know that near us is a spirit who, from cradle to the tomb, does not leave us even for an instant, not even when we dare to sin. And this heavenly spirit guides us and protects us as a friend, a brother. But it is extremely consoling to know that this angel prays without ceasing for us; offers to God all our good actions, our thoughts, our desires, if they are pure. Do not forget this invisible companion, always present, always ready to listen to us and even more, ready to console us…Always keep him present to your mind’s eye. Often remember the presence of this angel. Thank him, pray to him, keep him good company. Open yourself up to him and confide your suffering to him. Have a constant fear of offending the purity of his gaze…Turn to him in times of supreme anxiety and you will experience beneficial help. Never say that you are alone in sustaining the battle against our enemies. Never say you have nobody to whom you can open up and confide. You would do this heavenly messenger a grace wrong.” Padre Pio to Anita Rodote – (From Padre Pio, The True Story. C Bernard Ruffin. Our Sunday Visitor, 2018. P. 357) After I read these words, I immediately went into prayer! I asked my Guardian Angel to forgive me for not understanding who he is or how very much I owe him for being with me all these years. I spent some time just repenting, and then asked if I could know his name. I think I was given the answer, and it is wonderful! Now I am spending my day, in the presence of my dear friend from Heaven, and I feel so different, so happy, so blessed, so secure and so humbled!! It is wonderful. Our Lady speaks a lot to us about Heaven. I haven’t found yet any reference to our guardian angels in her messages. But she does talk about Heaven being with us. In this message below, she tells us that “Heaven is with you and is fighting for peace in your hearts…” I believe this is a reference to our Guardian Angels!! Here is the whole message: December 25, 2016 “Dear children! With great joy, today I am carrying my Son Jesus to you, for Him to give you His peace. Open your hearts, little children, and be joyful that you can receive it. Heaven is with you and is fighting for peace in your hearts, in the families and in the world; and you, little children, help with your prayers for it to be so. I bless you with my Son Jesus and call you not to lose hope; and for your gaze and heart to always be directed towards Heaven and eternity. In this way, you will be open to God and to His plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.” By acknowledging our Guardian Angel, and spending our day with him, we will realize that Heaven is with us, and fighting for peace in our hearts. And with our Angel, our gaze and heart will always be directed towards Heaven and eternity. We are so blessed!!! In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV

January 31, 2024 Reflection – May this time be a time of family prayer!

May this time be a time of family prayer!   January 31, 2024 Dear Family of Mary! “Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer.” (01/25/24) Our Lady asked us to make this a time of prayer. Of course we first think of our own personal prayer. It is so important. But we cannot forget family prayer. In the family we must pray every day! It is essential to the health of the family that we pray together every day, calling on the blessings God has in store for us as families. Children thrive in a family that prays. And family prayer is a strong protection for the mental and spiritual health of all the members, especially the teenagers. Family prayer sets up a perimeter of protection around the members of the family, from all satanic attacks. The family Rosary is powerful! I think we can say, “May this time be a time of family prayer.” Here is a message in which Our Lady called for family prayer: September 25, 2023  “Dear children! I am calling you to strong prayer. Modernism wants to enter into your thoughts and steal from you the joy of prayer and of meeting with Jesus. That is why, my dear little children, renew prayer in your families, so that my motherly heart may be joyful as in the first days, when I had chosen you, and day and night prayer resounded — and Heaven was not silent but abundantly bestowed peace and blessing on this place of grace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” You notice the use of the word Modernism. Modernism is Satan’s clever disguise in the intellectual and political arenas. Modernism slowly removes God from all human endeavors, leaving them wide open to Satanic influence. Modernism irradicates prayer. Modernism kills all faith. But prayer can drive Satan away, in all his forms. Prayer in the family will set up a safety zone. Let prayer resound in our families, and Heaven will bring peace and blessing to the world, one family at a time! “Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer.” In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
