Dear Family of Mary!
   
Here is the September 25, 2019 message from Our Lady, Queen of Peace!

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for my intentions so that I may help you.

Little children, pray the Rosary and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary because, in your life, you are also passing through joys and sorrows. In this way, you are transforming the mysteries into your life, because life is a mystery until you place it into God’s hands.

In this way, you will have the experience of faith like Peter who met Jesus and the Holy Spirit filled his heart. Little children, you are also called to witness by living the love with which, day by day, God wraps you with my presence.

Therefore, little children, be open and pray with the heart in faith. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2019)

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

33 Day Consecration – Day 22

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 22


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary! 

A great champion for Our Lady, Fr. Albert Shamon, wrote many pamphlets and books on Our Lady. He loved Medjugorje and believed in Our Lady’s presence there. He was a priest of the Rochester Diocese under Archbishop Fulton Sheen. Fr. Shamon wrote a short work called “The Power of the Rosary” which I find very helpful. I want to share some excerpts from this little book with you all as we continue our 33 Day Consecration.

In Chapter One, Fr. Shamon puts the Rosary in the context of the history of nations over the past 400 years. He asks the question, “Why is the Holy Rosary so efficacious?” Our Lady has recommended it in every apparition over that same time period. He says, “One reason is that the Rosary is a thinking prayer.” He says that over these centuries bad thinking was introduced by so many philosophers, i.e. Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot, the Encyclopedists, the Deists, Marx, Nietzsche, Stalin, and on and on. Bad thinking! Thinking that was based on atheism and the exaltation of Humanity.

But Fr. Shamon tells us:

Why this emphasis on the Rosary? Our Mother, the virgin most prudent, well knows that as we think, so we act. Creeds go before deeds. And she also knows that there is nothing so able to straighten out our thinking and counteract the errors of modern society as daily meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary!!

The Rosary is good thinking. It drives home four great truths of religion.

1. The Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary teach the first great truth of religion; namely, life and religion are meant to be joyful. So many don’t think that. Very often, they think the very opposite. George Eliot described some of the clergymen of her day as ‘pale faced mementos of solemnities.” Glumdums!

The Joyful Mysteries teach the very opposite. They remind us that life is to be joyful; that religion, too, is to be joyful; that God has made us for happiness. That was why He put our first parents in a world that was a paradise. Did not Paul urge his beloved Philippians, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!”

But better still, the Joyful Mysteries tell us how we can obtain that joy; namely, by doing God’s will as Mary and Joseph did, as Elizabeth and Zechariah did, as Anna and Simeon, the shepherds and the wise men did. (Rev. Albert J. M. Shamon. The Power of the Rosary. 1990 p. 4, 10)


I never thought of the Rosary as a “thinking prayer”, but Fr. Shamon is right! Through the contemplation of the mysteries in each decade we are presented with the truth about humanity, the truth about God and the call we have been given. We become those who see through the fog of lies present in our day and can steer our way joyfully towards the Light! (We will talk about 2,3 and 4 the next 3 days)

As Our Lady has said:

December 25, 1996 “Dear children! Today I am with you in a special way, holding little Jesus in my lap and I invite you, little children, to open yourselves to His call. He calls you to joy. Little children, joyfully live the messages of the Gospel, which I am repeating in the time since I am with you. Little children, I am your Mother and I desire to reveal to you the God of love and the God of peace. I do not desire for your life to be in sadness but that it be realized in joy for eternity, according to the Gospel. Only in this way will your life have meaning. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


Dearest Mother, thank you for the gift of the Rosary! Thank you for finding such a perfect way to help us become good thinkers, those who ponder and learn the truth through the mysteries of Jesus’ life. We have a good teacher in your, dearest Mary!

 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Glorious mysteries!! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

33 Day Consecration – Day 21

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 21


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary! 

 
Today we continue examining a conversation that Sr. Lucia of Fatima had with Fr. Fuentes in 1957, Part 5:

“…Finally, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon and as the sure door through which we are to enter Heaven.”  


Yesterday, at English Mass, Bishop Vincent Horan shared with us what Mary, Our Mother, is doing in Medjugorje to meet the challenges to the faith in our world today. He is spot-on, and very clear: Our Lady is maintaining a spiritual Field Hospital for her wounded children who have suffered in this terrible “war zone” of our modern world. She truly is the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon, and a sure door through which we are to enter Heaven!!


Homily at English Mass in Medjugorje – given by Bishop Vincent Horan:
 
Within a short time of assuming the Papacy, Pope Francis gave us an image of the Church as that of a field hospital in a war zone. Those in the front lines would be brought to the hospital with various injuries, or just for a time of recuperation. When better, they would return to the battle lines to take up their mission again.
 
In many ways, Medjugorje fits into this image of Pope Francis. We have all come here with our various ailments: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Some have come to rest with the Lord, as they feel that they are in a war zone with our modern world. Whether as priests, religious, or lay people, we often find that we seem to be losing the battle to keep the presence of Christ alive in our various societies, in the laws and customs of our countries. Like the Jewish people in exile in Babylon, we almost seem to be exiles in our world, to be cut off from the joys of our Christian faith, as we experience it here in Medjugorje during these days of pilgrimage.
 
But as we have seen in our first reading today, God did not leave His people in exile forever. The Lord roused the spirit of Cyrus to begin the work of reconstruction of the temple in Jerusalem, so that the chosen people could return to their beloved homeland, purified and humbled by their punishment for their sins and unfaithfulness.
 
With the benefit of hindsight, we can see that the 38 years since the apparitions of Our Lady began here in Medjugorje on the 24th of June 1981, more or less coincides with the most ferocious attack on the Church since the day of Pentecost. With the shocking revelations of sexual abuse by bishops, priests, religious and other Christians, the Church almost collapsed completely. For our punishment, we have been sent into exile to the margins of our societies.
 
But God has not abandoned us. As Mary was with the Apostles in the Upper Room, in the background, praying and supporting the ones chosen by her Son, so now Mary is among us now, especially here in Medjugorje, helping us to rebuild the temple of the Church on new foundations: on the foundation of humility, on the foundation of a personal commitment to Christ, Her Son.
 
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, do you have a personal relationship with Jesus and with His Mother? Have you established a personal relationship, perhaps with one of His saints? Like Padre Pio, for example, whom we are celebrating today. We can bring the peace of Medjugorje back to our homes, parishes and societies, only if we have a deeply personal and intimate relationship with Jesus.
 
Our faith is a love story. The more we give ourselves to Jesus in our various vocations, the more He gives Himself to us. With the love of Jesus in our hearts, with the peace of Our Lady, Queen of Peace in our hearts, we shall be a light to others; even when we are not intentionally wishing to be a light. That light, however, may both inspire others, or it may challenge others; as nothing can remain hidden before God’s light forever.
 
To return to the image of Medjugorje as a field hospital, I think we who come here on pilgrimage for a week or so, must take responsibility for the maintenance and work of this spiritual hospital. Obviously, Satan is not pleased with what is taking place here between the two hills. I ask that each one of us, as we return to our homes at the end of our pilgrimage, that each day we would pray for Medjugorje, for the Franciscan friars, for the sisters, for the visionaries, for the guides and helpers at the Shrine, and for all six-and-a-half thousand people who live now here in Medjugorje, that God would preserve their energies, that God through the intercession of Our Lady, would keep them zealous, and never allow them to become lukewarm, so that the treasure of Medjugorje may grow from strength to strength and become the New Jerusalem of our Christian faith, for the glory and praise of the most Holy Trinity.
(from English Mass in Medjugorje, September 23, 2019 – https://marytv.tv/english-mass-in-medjugorje/  )   


Our Lady has called us to come close to her Immaculate Heart because there she can minister to us and lead us:

August 25, 2012 “Dear children! Also today, with hope in the heart, I am praying for you and am thanking the Most High for every one of you who lives my messages with the heart. Give thanks to God’s love that I can love and lead each of you through my Immaculate Heart also toward conversion. Open your hearts and decide for holiness, and hope will give birth to joy in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


Dearest Mother, thank you for your Immaculate Heart which is for us the Seat of Mercy, Goodness and Pardon. Through you we can find our way to God. We can be healed of all our wounds and become ready for Heaven. May the Field Hospital of Medjugorje grow stronger and stronger, as there are so many wounded children in this world. 
 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! The sorrowful mysteries!!

33 Day Consecration – Day 20

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 20


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

 
Today we continue examining a conversation that Sr. Lucia of Fatima had with Fr. Fuentes in 1957:  A conversation between Sr. Lucia of Fatima and Fr. Fuentes (1957) Part 4:

“The two means to save the world are prayer and sacrifice. Look, Father, the Most Holy Virgin, in these last times in which we live, has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Holy Rosary. She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all, spiritual, in the private life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, of the religious communities or even of the life of peoples and nations, that cannot be resolved through the prayer of the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve through the recitation of the Holy Rosary. Through the Holy Rosary we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls.”


Sr. Lucia was completely convinced that there was no problem, no matter how difficult or challenging that could not be resolved through the prayer of the Rosary. She was very clear about this. Her words challenge me to think differently about the Rosary. I do love the Rosary and I pray it in response to Our Lady’s call. But now I am beginning to realize that over the years it was the prayer of the Rosary that brought healing and change into our family. Yet I never made the connection. I now realize it has been our constant daily prayer of the Rosary that has slowly but surely released healing and grace in our family. Our daily prayer of the Rosary has created an atmosphere of grace for us! This atmosphere envelops us in wellbeing. Without realizing it many problems have been solved and our days now move in peace. I am sure many of you have seen the same thing happening to your families.

Rather than being a one-time prayer that makes miracles, the Rosary is a lifetime prayer that makes Heaven on Earth! Our prayer of the Rosary, as Our Lady’s children, will do the same for our Church and for the world. The atmosphere of grace will grow and reach more and more people. This could be what Our Lady was getting at in this message from 1986:   

 
June 12, 1986 “Dear children! Today I call you to begin to pray the Rosary with a living faith. That way I will be able to help you. You, dear children, wish to obtain graces, but you are not praying. I am not able to help you because you do not want to get started. Dear children, I am calling you to pray the Rosary and that your Rosary be an obligation which you shall fulfill with joy. That way you shall understand the reason I am with you this long. I desire to teach you to pray. Thank you for having responded to my call.”



As we continue to pray the Rosary together, we will begin to understand the reason Our Lady has been with us so long! She has been building the Kingdom of Heaven in our midst.

Dearest Mother, thank you for giving us the Rosary as the solution to every difficulty in our lives. Thank you for increasing its power, as we pray it daily together. Many of us pray multiple Rosaries every day, and the grace is increasing. The Rosary has become an obligation that we fulfill with joy! Help us to see all the difficulties and problems that are being solved through this prayer of the Rosary. Help us to understand and grow in courage and commitment to our prayer! 

   
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! The Glorious Mysteries!! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Today we continue examining a conversation that Sr. Lucia of Fatima had with Fr. Fuentes in 1957.

A conversation between Sr. Lucia of Fatima and Fr. Fuentes (1957) Part 3:

“Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons. …The third reason is because in the plans of Divine Providence God always, before He is about to punish the world, exhausts all other remedies.”

Our Lady told Lucia that there is always hope, because the Father looks for every possible way to help us change, before He chastises. Our Lady has spoken to us very sparingly about God’s punishment. She prefers to be positive with us. But in this message from 1983 she was serious:


“The sign will come; you must not worry about it. The only thing that I would want to tell you is to be converted. Make that known to all my children as quickly as possible. No pain, no suffering is too great to me in order to save you. I will pray to my Son not to punish the world; but I beseech you, be converted. You cannot imagine what is going to happen nor what the Eternal Father will send to earth. That is why you must be converted! Renounce everything. Do penance. Express my acknowledgement to all my children who have prayed and fasted. I carry all this to my Divine Son in order to obtain an alleviation of His justice against the sins of mankind. I thank the people who have prayed and fasted. Persevere and help me to convert the world.” (June 24, 1983)

This message was given 36 years ago. God has been patient with us, giving us Our Lady in Medjugorje and giving us many years to respond to her call. Even this year, she said to us:

 “Dear children! Pray, work and witness with love for the Kingdom of Heaven that it may be good for you here on earth. Little children, God will bless your effort a hundred-fold; you will be witnesses among peoples, souls of unbelievers will feel the grace of conversion and Heaven will be grateful for your efforts and sacrifices. Little children, witness with the Rosary in hand that you are mine and decide for holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2019)


This message is so very positive. She does want us to work very hard for the Kingdom of Heaven “so that it will be good for [us] on earth.” But she tells us that The Father will bless every effort we make to spread the Kingdom “one hundred-fold!” We have much to hope for, much to work for!! Perhaps there is time to change! Truly the Father is exhausting every remedy in order to help us repent and choose Him. He has sent Our Lady to be with us constantly in Medjugorje. This is an extreme grace!
 
Dearest Mother, thank you for coming as an extreme remedy for our sinful world. Thank you for coming to Medjugorje! And thank you for the Rosary. Thank you for giving us this marvelous tool in our work for the conversion of souls and the salvation of the world. May we pray, non-stop, so that your plans will come to completion and the world will be changed!
 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

33 Day Consecration – Day 18

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 18  


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!  

Today we continue examining a conversation that Sr. Lucia of Fatima had with Fr. Fuentes in 1957. We will let these profound and prophetic words of Sr. Lucia sink in, so I will present it paragraph by paragraph.


A conversation between Sr. Lucia of Fatima and Fr. Fuentes (1957) Part 2:

“The second reason is because She said to my cousins as well as to myself that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies, which signify that there will not be others.”

Last remedies…This is ominous. When the doctor says, “Well this is the last possible treatment that can save you” we take it quite seriously. The possibilities have now run out. It is a matter of life or death. Well, Our Lady has come to us in Medjugorje to apply these two last remedies. And she is staying with us to make sure we follow the directions and take full advantage of these remedies. She will not quit until we are all cured.

She said to us:  

August 25, 1997 “Dear children! God gives me this time as a gift to you, so that I may instruct and lead you on the path of salvation. Dear children, now you do not comprehend this grace, but soon a time will come when you will lament for these messages. That is why, little children, live all of the words which I have given you through this time of grace and renew prayer, until prayer becomes a joy for you. Especially, I call all those who have consecrated themselves to my Immaculate Heart to become an example to others. I call all priests and religious brothers and sisters to pray the rosary and to teach others to pray. The rosary, little children, is especially dear to me. Through the rosary open your heart to me and I am able to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”   



October 25, 1988  “Dear children! My invitation that you live the messages which I am giving you is a daily one, specially, little children, because I want to draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus. Therefore, little children, I am inviting you today to the prayer of consecration to Jesus, my dear Son, so that each of you may be His. And then I am inviting you to the consecration of my Immaculate Heart. I want you to consecrate yourselves as parents, as families and as parishioners so that all belong to God through my heart. Therefore, little children, pray that you comprehend the greatness of this message which I am giving you. I do not want anything for myself, rather all for the salvation of your soul. Satan is strong and therefore, you, little children, by constant prayer, press tightly against my motherly heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.



God has indeed given us this time so that Our Lady can administer the remedies we so badly need. We need her Immaculate Heart from which so many graces and blessings flow, within which we can hide and find safety. We also need the Rosary, which is the prayer that defends us from Satan, and in fact defeats him. The battle today is at an apex. The heart of the Church has been wounded. Only Our Lady’s Heart and her Rosary can win the day. This is our great calling!

 
Dearest Mother, thank you for the Rosary. Thank you for your Immaculate Heart, so full of love and purity and strength. You are administering the last two remedies to us through your presence in Medjugorje. We say ‘yes’ to you completely. Thank you, dearest Mother, for your presence and your love.

 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen 

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! The Joyful Mysteries!! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

33 Day Consecration – Day 17

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 17  

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!

Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary! 

 
Today we are at the exact midpoint of our 33 Day Consecration. We have done 16 days. We are on Day 17. And tomorrow we will begin another 16 days! So, to mark the halfway point, God gave us a beautiful homily given at the International Mass last night, by Bishop Giampaolo Crepaldi from Trieste, Italy! Bishop Crepaldi celebrated the International Mass and shared beautifully about the great mercy of God and the presence of Our Lady, and how we can dedicate our lives to her call. It is the perfect midpoint reflection and really it is a prayer!!

Evening International Mass
Thursday, September 19, 2019
Bishop Giampaolo Crepaldi, Bishop of Trieste, Italy, Celebrant and Homilist.
 
 
 
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
 
Gathered around the altar on which the offering of the Lord Jesus to the Father is renewed through the powerful action of the Holy Spirit, we want to express our devoted gratitude to the Triune Love which here in Medjugorje manifests itself in a particular way with the features of His forgiveness and His Mercy.
 
We, too, like the simple woman in the passage of the Gospel that we have just heard (Lk 7:36-50), have come here to prostrate ourselves at the feet of Jesus.
 
Like her, we are also called to nurture a great love, because it is the love that gives us an experience of free forgiveness.
 
Like her, we, too, after a good confession, savor the joy of forgiveness and the joy of a life renewed and reborn in Christ.
 
Like her, we also must be firmly convinced that the debt we have accumulated with our sinful behavior is completely forgiven. Because, like her, we also know that many sins are forgiven to us when we show great love.
 
Like her, we, too, are at table with Him, becoming His family, saved by the grace of His forgiveness.
 
Like her, we, too, at the moment of the Holy Communion, will touch that body tormented on the cross and glorified by the resurrection, aware that the Divine Mercy is a gift of grace for all.
 
Like her, we also must feel saved and completely redeemed from our evil which has often and for a long time afflicted our soul, feeling the profound peace that Jesus proclaims Himself to us, saying, “Your sins are forgiven, and your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”
 
This is one of the formulas with which the confessor concludes the Rite of Confession repeating to each penitent the same wish for salvation and peace. Let us cherish this treasure, and we will not be lacking in His Mercy.
 
Dear brothers and sisters, an urgent call that comes to us in Medjugorje is the call to conversion which is concretized in the call to direct our lives to Christ.
 
It is the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother who accompanies us on our journey to come to Jesus Christ.
 
It is the Mother who, by connecting our heart to her heart, enables us to merge ourselves in Christ, in His thoughts and intentions, in His will.
 
In this perspective, we want to open ourselves for the consecration to the Queen of Peace, aware that Mary wants our salvation and the salvation of our brothers.
 
This is a path of holiness that we must go through with the rosary in hand, in contemplating the mysteries, which are otherwise undecipherable. Christians find the light of life and the history of mankind which, this evening, we entrust to the motherly love of the Queen of Peace.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our spouses and families, so that the tenderness of true love, the serenity of a dignified labor, and a generosity and the gift of life may not fail.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our young people so that the will to adhere to Christ, the only one who can help them in deliberating and planning of their future, will not be extinguished.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our priests, the consecrated ones, and the seminarians, so that they may always be ready and faithful in responding to their vocation.
 
To this Queen, we entrust those who are sick, lonely and marginalized, humiliated and desperate; those who are undermined, but the thought of life is an unbearable burden.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our cities, our countries, and those who administer them, so that they may never lack the courage to strive for the common good.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our diocesan churches so that the Lord Jesus may be the source of their actions, their service, their teaching, and their mission.
 
To this Queen, we entrust our lives, seeking the grace to be protected and to receive the immeasurable good of faith, hope and charity of Christ the Lord.



Amen and Amen!!!

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

33 Day Consecration – Day 16

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 16  


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!  

 
Today we begin examining a portion of a conversation that Sr. Lucia of Fatima had with Fr. Fuentes in 1957. We will let these profound and prophetic words of Sr. Lucia sink in, so I will present it paragraph by paragraph.

A conversation between Sr. Lucia of Fatima and Fr. Fuentes (1957):  

 
“Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons. The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Also from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.”


Our Lady told Sr. Lucia that she was in a decisive battle with the Devil. According to Our Lady there would be no neutral parties in this battle. Over the entire world, there would be only 2 choices, God or Satan. Our Lady has come to us in Medjugorje to lead us on the side of God.  She has called us repeatedly to be active in defeating satan through prayer. Her plans in Medjugorje are very important in this final battle:


January 14, 1985 (Monday) “My dear children! Satan is so strong and with all his might wants to disturb my plans which I have begun with you. You pray, just pray and don’t stop for a minute! I will pray to my Son for the realization of all the plans I have begun. Be patient and constant in your prayers. And don’t let satan discourage you. He is working hard in the world. Be on your guard!”  

  
July 12, 1984 “Dear children! These days satan wants to frustrate my plans. Pray that His plan not be realized. I will pray my Son Jesus to give you the grace to experience the victory of Jesus in the temptations of satan. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 
May we understand the starkness of our choices now. May we choose only God, always God. May we pray constantly for Our Lady’s plans and be part of them. This is the decisive battle. There is no neutral ground.

Dearest Mother, help us to choose the good and to stay safely within your plans for the defeat of satan. We are your little army, and we want to support you as you deliver the world of the evil one.


Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today!

33 Day Consecration – Day 15

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 15


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary! 
 
June 25, 1985 (Tuesday) “I invite you to call on everyone to pray the Rosary. With the rosary you shall overcome all the adversities which satan is trying to inflict on the Catholic Church. All you priests, pray the Rosary! Dedicate your time to the Rosary!” (This message Our Lady gave in response to the question of Marija Pavlovic: Our Lady, what do you wish to recommend to priests?)


Our Lady is very clear about this. It is the Rosary that will overcome all the adversities which satan is trying to inflict on the Catholic Church! She told us this in 1985. We find ourselves 34 years later seeing these adversities full grown! The Church is in crisis. But the antidote is the same. We must pray the Rosary, with faith, with conviction, with constancy and with hope, if we wish to stop Satan’s plan to destroy our Church and humanity.

Fr. Gabriel Amorth was a valiant exorcist priest in Italy. He helped to re-establish the sacramental practice of Exorcism in the Church. And he did thousands of Exorcisms, freeing God’s children from the bondage of the enemy. He said this about the Rosary in the battle against Satan:

“Mary is a creature like us, but, having been elevated to be the Mother of God, she has extraordinary power. Also, for this reason I ask the persons who assist me (at exorcisms) to pray the Rosary. It is the most advisable prayer in that context, prayed individually – not aloud and collectively, as it is often prayed in church before Mass – so as not to disturb the exorcism. I would add that the Rosary, being the prayer most appreciated by Our Lady, is an extremely powerful arm against the devil, and I warmly recommend it to anyone suffering from spiritual evils. This prayer has, in fact, a strong power of protection and liberation from evil. One day Sister Lucia, a seer of Fatima, revealed that God has conferred a power so great on the Rosary that there is no evil – personal, family or social – that cannot be defeated by its recitation with faith.” (Fr. Gabriele Amorth, An Exorcist explains the Demonic. Sophia Institute Press. 2016, p.123)


Both Our Lady and Fr. Amorth are clear about this, the Rosary is the weapon we must employ in these days to defeat Satan and his plans of destruction. I do believe that is why Our Lady has constructed Medjugorje to be a center for the prayer of the Rosary. It is prayed climbing both hills, it is prayed in and around the church before and after evening Mass. Pilgrims pray it by the Risen Christ Statue, in fact by all the statues, in their hotels and pensions and everywhere else in between!! The Rosary fills the air in Medjugorje! And there is no place where you feel safer from the enemy than Medjugorje

Dearest Mother, thank you for the Rosary. Thank you for giving us this weapon against our enemy. We are very small and need your help. And you have given us the Rosary imbued with power from heaven! We want to help you to overcome the adversities that Satan has inflicted on our Church. We will pray the Rosary for your intentions, day and night. We are your little army. We love you.
 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

33 Day Consecration – Day 14

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 14


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary!

In his Apostolic Letter “On the Rosary”, St. John Paul was able to bring out the beautiful significance of every facet of the Rosary. He spoke about the beads of the Rosary this way: 


36. The traditional aid used for the recitation of the Rosary is the set of beads. At the most superficial level, the beads often become a simple counting mechanism to mark the succession of Hail Marys. Yet they can also take on a symbolism which can give added depth to contemplation.

Here the first thing to note is the way the beads converge upon the Crucifix, which both opens and closes the unfolding sequence of prayer. The life and prayer of believers is centered upon Christ. Everything begins from him, everything leads towards him, everything, through him, in the Holy Spirit, attains to the Father.

As a counting mechanism, marking the progress of the prayer, the beads evoke the unending path of contemplation and of Christian perfection. Blessed Bartolo Longo saw them also as a “chain” which links us to God. A chain, yes, but a sweet chain; for sweet indeed is the bond to God who is also our Father. A “filial” chain which puts us in tune with Mary, the “handmaid of the Lord” (Lk 1:38) and, most of all, with Christ himself, who, though he was in the form of God, made himself a “servant” out of love for us (Phil 2:7). 
 
 
Our Lady recently referred to the Rosary prayer in this way:
   
July 25, 2019 “Dear children! My call for you is prayer. May prayer be a joy for you and a wreath which binds you to God. Little children, trials will come, and you will not be strong, and sin will reign but, if you are mine, you will win, because your refuge will be the Heart of my Son Jesus. Therefore, little children, return to prayer until prayer becomes life for you in the day and the night. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
 
This beautiful image of a wreath or a chain that binds us to God is comforting and practical. We do love our Rosaries, because with them we have spent hours and hours in contact with Jesus and Mary. With them we have been able to pray, to pour out our hearts to Mary, asking for intercession and help. With them, we have been able to receive the consolation of the Holy Spirit, knowing that our prayers are being answered. With them many a sleepless night has been filled with peace – spent in sweet converse with Jesus and Mary.  
 
 
Dearest Mother, thank you for teaching us to pray. Thank you for giving us the Rosary. With this simple chain of love, we stay close to you and to Jesus, always knowing that we are not alone, and our prayers will be answered. Thank you, dearest Mother, for knowing exactly what we need to stay close to you.   
 
Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:


“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! The Joyful Mysteries!! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
