St. Ignatius of Antioch

Dear Family of Mary!

“Everything that is best for you, everything that leads you to eternal life, will be given to you. You will comprehend that the purpose of life is not always to want and take, but to love and give. You will have true peace and true love. You will be apostles of love…” (October 2, 2019)

I find this section of Our Lady’s message to be so beautiful, so comforting, so strong and true! God will supply everything we need if we turn to Him and stop trying to provide everything for ourselves. When we take our lives in our own hands, we begin to want and to take. Wanting and taking is deadly. Even when what we want is a good thing, like virtue, we can set about to want it and take it for ourselves. And we end up like pharisees.

Our only hope is to love and to give. That is the way to peace and joy. Let God give to us, let Our Lady give to us, all we need. We will turn and give all they give to us to others, and that is what life is supposed to be all about!

I believe that the Lord is the giver of all good things. He will be abundantly generous to us if we turn to Him and open our hearts to receive. He will prepare the way for us to find eternal life.

I looked in Our Lady’s messages for the times she spoke about what God wants to give us, or about what she wants to give us. Here are a few of those gifts:

May 22, 1986 “Dear children! Today I wish to give you my own love.”

December 25, 1987 “Dear children! Rejoice with me! My heart is rejoicing because of Jesus and today I want to give Him to you. Dear children, I want each one of you to open your heart to Jesus and I will give Him to you with love.”

December 25, 2002 “Be conscious of this gift that God has permitted me to be with you, especially today when in my arms I have little Jesus – the King of Peace. I desire to give you peace, and that you carry it in your hearts and give it to others until God’s peace begins to rule the world.”

November 25, 2005 “Little children, at this time, in a special way, I pray before God to give you the gift of faith. Only in faith will you discover the joy of the gift of life that God has given you. Your heart will be joyful thinking of eternity.
December 25, 2010 Dear children! Today, I and my Son desire to give you an abundance of joy and peace so that each of you may be a joyful carrier and witness of peace and joy in the places where you live.”
 
October 25, 2011 “Today I desire to give you the joy of the Risen One, that He may lead you and embrace you with His love and tenderness.”

March 25, 2012 “Dear children! Also, today, with joy, I desire to give you my motherly blessing.”

April 25, 2019  “You, little children, be the joy of the risen Jesus who died and resurrected for each of you. He conquered death to give you life, eternal life.
August 02, 2012 I am imploring my Son to give you pure hearts.”

October 02, 2016 “Dear children, the Holy Spirit, according to the Heavenly Father, made me the mother – the mother of Jesus – and by this alone, also your mother. That is why I am coming to hear you, that I may open my motherly arms to you; to give you my heart and to call you to remain with me, because from the top of the cross my Son entrusted you to me.”

Our Lady’s heart is a total gift to us! She is with us to bless, heal, strengthen, teach and lead us to God. The more we are with her, the more we will begin to understand that it is in loving and giving that we find true happiness and peace. We find the way to God!

Thank you, dearest Mother, for being with us all these years, in order to give to us your heart and the Heart of your Son, Jesus, as our refuge and hope.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

St. Hedwig
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me and love Him above all. Always strive to live in His truth…” (October 2, 2019)

Sometimes in a message Our Lady will say something simple that could be overlooked. In this message she said, “My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me…” And immediately as I read those words, I felt a rush of joy! I had an image of the outdoor altar behind St. James Church, surrounded by thousands of pilgrims, in the dark, with the lights pointed on the huge monstrance on the altar which was holding the large Eucharistic Host. Thousands of pilgrims were silently gazing upon Jesus. Thousands of hearts were growing silent and opening to the rays of grace that flow from that Host. Thousands of minds were quieting, allowing the peace that only God can give, to penetrate them. Thousands of memories were being healed. Thousands of souls were being bathed in grace, allowing God to renew them. All in silence. All in the company of one woman, the Mother who adores with us.

I believe that the grace of Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is augmented by the presence of Mary. She told us once:

“Tonight also, dear children, I am grateful to you in a special way for being here. Unceasingly adore the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I am always present when the faithful are adoring. Special graces are then being received.” March 15, 1984

Our Lady is always present when the faithful adore Jesus. But in Medjugorje, God has allowed her to be present in a very powerful way. She truly is in Medjugorje. And so, when we adore Jesus in Medjugorje, exposed on the Altar, we receive special graces! The Mother is adoring with us and praying for us. Her maternal presence helps us to focus on Jesus, to be at peace so we can receive His love. Her maternal care creates great trust in our hearts, so that we open to the Lord in a natural and childlike manner. Her motherly love teaches us how to love Jesus, to love our neighbor and to even love ourselves. We are transformed by such a moment with Jesus!

Last week Mary TV began airing Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, live, daily from the Adoration Chapel in Medjugorje. It is a half hour of silent adoration. It is aired between Hour of Mercy and the Daily Rosary – 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm Medjugorje time each day except Sunday. Here is a response we received after the first live adoration:

Dear Denis and Cathy -Thank you so much for the live stream of adoration this morning!!!  The grace that poured into my home was overwhelming. I do not understand what happened, but it did happen, and I can only hope that the whole meaning will be revealed as I pray about it. God Bless you and that amazing crew you have!!! Sincerely – J.R.

I have that same experience every day now. Grace just pours into my home and my heart each day during that ½ hour of Adoration. I believe it is especially powerful because Our Lady is adoring with us, praying for us and inspiring us to open to her Son.

And of course Mary TV also has the joy of streaming Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after the Evening Program in Medjugorje, on Tuesday night, Thursday night and often Saturday night! Like the thousands who adore Jesus at night in Medjugorje, we can all adore Jesus with Mary at our side, adoring with us!!

Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament changes the world!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

St. Teresa of Jesus

Dear Family of Mary!

“…By your example, you will make it so that my children who do not know my Son and His love may desire to come to know Him. My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me and love Him above all. Always strive to live in His truth. Thank you.” (October 2, 2019)


From 1John 4:

Beloved, let us love one another;
for love is of God,
and he who loves is born of God and knows God.

He who does not love does not know God;
for God is love.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us,
that God sent his only Son into the world,
so that we might live through him.

In this is love,
not that we loved God
but that he loved us
and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.

Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.

No man has ever seen God;
if we love one another,
God abides in us
and his love is perfected in us.

By this we know that we abide in him and he in us,
because he has given us of his own Spirit.

And we have seen and testify
that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God,
God abides in him,
and he in God.

So we know and believe the love God has for us.

God is love,
and he who abides in love abides in God,
and God abides in him.

In this is love perfected with us,
that we may have confidence for the day of judgment,
because as he is so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love,
but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment,
and he who fears is not perfected in love.

We love, because he first loved us.

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar;
for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen,
cannot love God whom he has not seen.

And this commandment we have from him,
that he who loves God should love his brother also. (1John 4:7-21)

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

St. Callistus I

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Abandon yourselves completely to His will and do not be afraid. Everything that is best for you, everything that leads you to eternal life, will be given to you. You will comprehend that the purpose of life is not always to want and take, but to love and give. You will have true peace and true love. You will be apostles of love….” (October 2, 2019)

In our modern age, it is very hard to understand that everything about our existence is gift. We have been told over and over again that the world of matter just “is”. The word “creation” seems to have been erased from the dictionary, at least in terms of God the Creator. But we believe that God created the universe, and everything in it. We believe He is intimately involved in everything the exists, and that He is working in creation to bring us to Himself. That is why we should not be afraid. We are NOT ALONE in this world.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church speaks directly to God as Creator in this section:

IV. THE MYSTERY OF CREATION 

God creates by wisdom and love

295 We believe that God created the world according to his wisdom.141 It is not the product of any necessity whatever, nor of blind fate or chance. We believe that it proceeds from God’s free will; he wanted to make his creatures share in his being, wisdom and goodness: “For you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”142 Therefore the Psalmist exclaims: “O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all”; and “The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.”143 God creates “out of nothing”

296 We believe that God needs no pre-existent thing or any help in order to create, nor is creation any sort of necessary emanation from the divine substance.144 God creates freely “out of nothing”:145  If God had drawn the world from pre-existent matter, what would be so extraordinary in that? A human artisan makes from a given material whatever he wants, while God shows his power by starting from nothing to make all he wants.146 
 
297 Scripture bears witness to faith in creation “out of nothing” as a truth full of promise and hope. Thus the mother of seven sons encourages them for martyrdom:
I do not know how you came into being in my womb. It was not I who gave you life and breath, nor I who set in order the elements within each of you. Therefore the Creator of the world, who shaped the beginning of man and devised the origin of all things, will in his mercy give life and breath back to you again, since you now forget yourselves for the sake of his laws. . . Look at the heaven and the earth and see everything that is in them, and recognize that God did not make them out of things that existed. Thus also mankind comes into being.147

298 Since God could create everything out of nothing, he can also, through the Holy Spirit, give spiritual life to sinners by creating a pure heart in them,148 and bodily life to the dead through the Resurrection. God “gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.”149 and since God was able to make light shine in darkness by his Word, he can also give the light of faith to those who do not yet know him.150
God creates an ordered and good world

299 Because God creates through wisdom, his creation is ordered: “You have arranged all things by measure and number and weight.”151 The universe, created in and by the eternal Word, the “image of the invisible God”, is destined for and addressed to man, himself created in the “image of God” and called to a personal relationship with God.152 Our human understanding, which shares in the light of the divine intellect, can understand what God tells us by means of his creation, though not without great effort and only in a spirit of humility and respect before the Creator and his work.153 Because creation comes forth from God’s goodness, it shares in that goodness – “and God saw that it was good. . . very good”154- for God willed creation as a gift addressed to man, an inheritance destined for and entrusted to him. On many occasions the Church has had to defend the goodness of creation, including that of the physical world.155

God transcends creation and is present to it

300 God is infinitely greater than all his works: “You have set your glory above the heavens.”156 Indeed, God’s “greatness is unsearchable”.157 But because he is the free and sovereign Creator, the first cause of all that exists, God is present to his creatures’ inmost being: “In him we live and move and have our being.”158 In the words of St. Augustine, God is “higher than my highest and more inward than my innermost self”.159

God upholds and sustains creation

301 With creation, God does not abandon his creatures to themselves. He not only gives them being and existence, but also, and at every moment, upholds and sustains them in being, enables them to act and brings them to their final end. Recognizing this utter dependence with respect to the Creator is a source of wisdom and freedom, of joy and confidence:
For you love all things that exist, and detest none of the things that you have made; for you would not have made anything if you had hated it. How would anything have endured, if you had not willed it? Or how would anything not called forth by you have been preserved? You spare all things, for they are yours, O Lord, you who love the living.160

St. John XXIII

Dear Family of Mary!

“My children, the earthly life is the way to eternity, to truth, and to life-to my Son. I desire to lead you on that way. You, my children-you who always thirst for more love, truth, and faith-need to know that there is only one spring from which you can drink. It is trust in the Heavenly Father; it is trust in His love…” (October 2, 2019)

The one spring from which we can drink is trust in the Heavenly Father. St. Faustina is the herald of this trust, complete trust in God. Here are two entries from her diary that I find very inspiring and comforting:

(148) A noble and delicate soul, even the most simple, but one of delicate sensibilities, sees God in everything, finds Him everywhere, and knows how to find Him in even the most hidden things. It finds all things important, it highly appreciates all things, it thanks God for all things, it draws profit for the soul from all things, and it gives all glory to God. It places its trust in God and is not confused when the time of ordeals comes. It knows that God is always the best of Fathers and makes little of human opinion. It follows faithfully the faintest breath of the Holy Spirit; it rejoices in this Spiritual Guest and holds onto Him like a child to its mother. Where other souls come to a standstill and fear, this soul passes on without fear or difficulty.

(589) Love casts out fear. Since I came to love God with my whole being and with all the strength of my heart, fear has left me. Even if I were to hear the most terrifying things about God’s justice, I would not fear Him at all, because I have come to know Him well. God is love, and His Spirit is peace. I see now that my deeds which have flowed from love are more perfect than those which I have done out of fear. I have placed my trust in God and fear nothing. I have given myself over to His holy will; let Him do with me as He wishes, and I will still love Him. 
(From Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska. “Divine Mercy in my Soul”)


Father we place ourselves completely in your hands. We trust in You and we love You!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

Our shipmate, Stephanie, felt led to transcribe this homily given in Medjugorje last week on the Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels.  I am pleased to share it with you now.  Something to really take to heart!


Evening International Mass in Medjugorje
Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels
October 2, 2019
 

The disciples came to Jesus and said, who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? So, He called a little child to Him, and set the child in front of them. Then He said, I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Anyone who welcomes a little child like this in my name, welcomes me. See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in Heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in Heaven.
 
 
Homily:
 
 
Today, the Holy Church places before us, Holy Angels, Guardian Angels. We believe that each one of us, we have learned the first prayer, the guardian angel, and we teach our children always the same prayer. And this is the entrance for our youngest ones. And unfortunately, we very often remain in this childlike state. And the older we get, we are farther we get from our guardian angels, even though each one of us received our own guardian angel.
 
Very often we, to people who are dear to us, such as a boyfriend or a girlfriend, many times we will say to them, my angel. Or we will call each other angels. When someone does good to you, you will say that that person is good just like angel is. We compare people with angels, such as when someone is good; when someone is noble; when we love someone; when we wish to express to someone some sort of special connection.
 
And unfortunately, as I said, as we get older this connection with the guardian angels seems to grow weaker. When we were children, very often we would mention angels, we would pray to the angels. But the more we mature; it is as if we have left the angels to the children. As we leave childhood, we place the guardian angels in the category of a myth, as if that is the story of a child. It no longer is affects us.
 
And I wonder why that is the case? Perhaps because we are enslaved by this material world. We are enslaved by materialism. And the angels cannot be in the material world, because they do not come from the material world. We do not have enough faith. There is no room for angels. If we do not have enough spirituality and connection with God, we cannot believe in the angels. Somehow, we have been enslaved with our earthly reality, and there is no room for our angels. Where there is no faith, there is no room for the guardian angels either.
 
And we all know how children are curious. How children are full of questions. They always ask why this, why that? Why this is like this? They want to know many things. And the older we get, the less we ask these questions.
 
I’m teaching high school religion classes, and I asked the seniors which topics they would like to discuss, what are they thinking about? They said, well, we don’t care. Ok, is there a topic that is maybe part of our program, maybe something wider; would you like to talk about that? What topic would that be? They answered, we don’t have a certain topic. Is there anything in this world that you’re interested in? Not connected to the religious teaching, not connected to religion, to faith, anything. Is there anything that interests you? But, unfortunately, this society is surrounding us with young men and women who are not interested, they don’t worry about many things.

And if we love someone, we want to learn about them. If we care about someone, then we want to learn. If I love someone, then I will give him time, I will give this time to get to know this person. And if people are not interested, if they are indifferent, then this is not good at all. Because what is opposite to love? It’s not hatred. It is indifference. When you don’t care. When you don’t care about anything. When you do not care about good or evil. When you do not care about life, nor about death. Perhaps this is the greatest spiritual death, not being interested, indifference. It is a great illness today.
 
What and who are angels? The word angel means, “the messenger”. Angels are pure spirits. They are perfect creatures of God, enriched with reason and with free will. They are immortal. They cannot be changed. And to our human physical eyes, they are invisible. And as such, they reflect the image of their Creator. They are not bound by the laws of decay. And the angels are concrete creatures of God, throughout the all of eternity, they praise their Creator. And they fulfill His teachings and intentions.
 
The Catechism of the Catholic Church speaks about angels. From childhood to death, human life is surrounded with their protection, with their intercession. And every person has a guardian angel as the shepherd to lead him into life. And after our earthly Christian life, according to the faith, each faithful person participates as a companion with the angels and with people who are united with God.
 
Angels are spiritual creatures, the Catechism says, that constantly praise God, that serve God and His saving teaching, according to the other creatures. The angels cooperate with what is good for us. They surround Christ, their messenger. He in a special way is serving us in expressing His saving mission towards people. The Church honors angels who on our earthly journey help the Church, and who protect every human creature. This is what is written in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. And it says that about the angels.
 
And we know they serve, we have heard in the gospel and in the readings that throughout the Holy Scriptures the angels are mentioned. There is a story in the parable of a woman who lost a coin, and she said “rejoice with me, for I have found this coin that I had lost. And so, there is a great joy before the angels of the Lord for one converted sinner.” And today we already had in the Holy Scripture this instance when Jesus says, “See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in Heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in Heaven”. Throughout the whole scripture, the Holy Scripture, we have this witness!,

What would be the service of angels? What is their mission? Our guardian angel participates in the voice of the conscience. It is the voice of conscience that encourages you to good, to do something good; that you may decide for the good thing, that you avoid evil, that you avoid sin; that encourages you to be noble, and that leads you to the truth. It is the inner good voice, that helps us to be better people. The angels, as the name says, are our guardian angels.
 
So, there is an interesting story that was witnessed to us by Holy Father Pius IX. While he was an altar boy, Holy Father said, during the Holy Mass, he started to feel this anxiety, and he was able to see on the other side of the altar, a beautiful young man who was calling him to come closer. So, at first, he did not respond to that. But this young man was not giving up, and he was calling him to come to the other side of the altar. And so Holy Father Pius who was a boy back in those days, he went to the other side. And just as he moved to the other side of the altar, this young man was no longer there. And in the place where Holy Father had been standing, at that moment, a statue fell. The statue fell on that very spot. And this was the concrete testimony of how God through his angel, saved his life. He preserved the Holy Father while he was an altar boy and demonstrated such a concrete depiction of God’s love that works through His angels.
 
I do not know whether we are aware of that, but our guardian angels are with us in every moment. And with my students, I was commenting that the other day. So, I asked them, are you aware that this guardian angel literally is, in every moment, next to you? Imagine if you’re doing something that’s not right, if you are in the middle of a sin, how this angel feels uncomfortable? And Mary maybe sometimes is even ashamed of us? And how we need to witness that to ourselves, that that angel is present in every moment. And when we are in his company, when we are alone, when we are in solitude, that this guardian angel is here with us. He looks at us while we do something bad, he is trying to give us advice – don’t do that! — he encourages us in every moment to do good.
 
And in the end, perhaps the saddest thing is that we don’t make use of everything that the Lord gives us. The Lord has given us each a guardian angel. They are not the angels that we imagine – little, fat children who are playing violins and running around. These are spiritual creatures that are here for the spiritual battle, for our spiritual fight, spiritual creatures that help us.  Angels are without bodies. But we cannot imagine them in that way, we must imagine them with bodies. The wings mean that they are not on earth. That they do not come from the earth. With their wings, they are above this earth, they are the symbol of Heaven. These are the spiritual creatures that can help us in our spiritual battles.
 
And so, it is a pity that we do not pray to them, that we do not make use of this gift that the Lord has given us. It is the same as this. Imagine you had a pharmacy next to your home, but then you died. And you could have taken a cure from the pharmacy. Each one of us, we have the Holy Bible, we can read Holy Bible. But no. The Bible is just collecting dust. We have so many good books that we could profit from. We could learn from. But unfortunately, we don’t feel like doing that. And the same is with guardian angels. The Lord sent us guardian angels to help us on this earth. To help us in our spiritual battles that are many, and we know that ourselves.
 
 So, let us pray at this Holy Mass, that we may put into life this heart of ours. That we may encourage ourselves – that we may start praying to our guardian angels. This is not a story for children, but this is something concrete. This is not a fairy tale, but this is our reality. Because the spiritual world is much wider and more real than the material world that we live in. Let us pray at this Holy Mass that we may make use of the things that the Lord has given us. And, first, that we may start to pray to our guardian angels. That they may carry our prayers to the Lord. That they may help us in our spiritual battles. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

St. Denis and Companions

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children, the will and the love of the Heavenly Father make it so that I am among you, that I, with a motherly love, may help the growth of faith in your heart, for you to be able to truly comprehend the purpose of earthly life and the greatness of the heavenly one…” (October 2, 2019)

The will and the love of the Heavenly Father have given us Our Mother in this special way, present to us in a real and physical way, in Medjugorje. The Father has sent the Mother to us because He knows how lost we are. He knows how much we need her love, a love that is pure and substantial, powerful and comforting. He knows that we desperately need Our Lady’s love.

In a powerful way, many people first experience Our Lady’s love when they go to Medjugorje. It is in Medjugorje that we encounter Our Lady in a personal way. Each person describes it in their own words, but almost everyone feels her very near. This personal, one on one, encounter transforms us. Just listen to the Fruit Shows on Mary TV, and you will hear about the power of that encounter. It could be the scent of roses, the sun spinning, an invisible but oh so real hug, a sweet voice in the depths of the heart, or the gift of tears. But each encounter is perfectly fitted to the needs of the individual.

Our Lady is really and truly in Medjugorje, and she is there because the Heavenly Father has sent her to us in these most desperate times. The Father knows that Our Lady’s love, her personal touch, is the last and most powerful grace her can give to us, to help us to turn back to Him. Experiencing her presence is healing. There is no love like Our Lady’s love. It changes us.

Here is a beautiful message that describes Our Lady’s mission among us given to her by the love and the will of the Heavenly Father:

December 02, 2018 “Dear children, when you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you, and above all, interceding for you with my Son.

I know that you desire to have a strong faith and to express it in the right way. What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith – then every way in which you express it is proper. Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children; it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God’s creatures.

Apostles of my love, my children, have trust in my Son. Help all of my children to come to know His love. You are my hope – you who strive to sincerely love my Son.

In the name of love, for your salvation, according to the will of the Heavenly Father and through my Son, I am here among you.

Apostles of my love, along with prayer and sacrifice, may your hearts be illuminated with the love and the light of my Son. May that light and love illuminate all those whom you meet and bring them back to my Son.

I am with you.

In a special way, I am alongside your shepherds. With my motherly love I illuminate and encourage them, that with the hands blessed by my Son, they may bless the entire world. Thank you.”


May we all respond to Our Lady in these days with open hearts, pure hearts, hearts ready to love and to pray. Having encountered our Mother and her love, we now can draw her other children to her. She is our only hope in these last days before the coming of the Lord.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

Thank you for joining in our 33 Day Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary. Many of you have written me to share some of the blessings you have received during this time of concentrated prayer. It was a blessing!

Today I would like to return to the October 2, 2019 message. Our Lady said so many beautiful things to us in that message!! Maybe we can prayerfully read the message and let the Holy Spirit speak to us.

Dear children, the will and the love of the Heavenly Father make it so that I am among you, that I, with a motherly love, may help the growth of faith in your heart, for you to be able to truly comprehend the purpose of earthly life and the greatness of the heavenly one.

My children, the earthly life is the way to eternity, to truth, and to life-to my Son. I desire to lead you on that way. You, my children-you who always thirst for more love, truth, and faith-need to know that there is only one spring from which you can drink. It is trust in the Heavenly Father; it is trust in His love.

Abandon yourselves completely to His will and do not be afraid. Everything that is best for you, everything that leads you to eternal life, will be given to you. You will comprehend that the purpose of life is not always to want and take, but to love and give. You will have true peace and true love. You will be apostles of love.

By your example, you will make it so that my children who do not know my Son and His love may desire to come to know Him. My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me and love Him above all. Always strive to live in His truth. Thank you. (October 2, 2019)

Thanks again for praying the consecration with me and God bless!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Our Lady of the Rosary!
Consecration Day!

Dear Family of Mary!


Consecration day!!   
Our Lady has spoken to us as we have prayed this consecration to her. Her September 25, 2019 message give us so much wisdom and encouragement as we profess our commitment to praying the Rosary:

“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)

We say “yes” to you, dearest Mother and will pray our Rosary “as an obligation [we] will fulfill with joy!” We pray our consecration prayer one more time!!

“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 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

33 Day Consecration – Day 33

Dear Family of Mary!

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

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

Bartolo Longo was saved by Our Lady and her Rosary from a life of Satanism and the certainty of hell. He was convinced that Our Lady saved him and gave the rest of his life to spreading devotion to Mary and the Rosary. Here is one of his prayers, a cry of joy and gratitude to Our Lady for her Rosary:

“O what a balsam I feel pouring out in my heart, tormented by thousands of doubts about eternal salvation, when I think that Mary has come from heaven to my help! By her own hands, She has thrown me this rope of salvation for me to seize upon in order to escape from Satan’s hands, and from the seductions of the world and of flesh…The Mother of sinners has seen your fragility and has come to the rescue of her perishing sons, and has lent them a celestial chain, to which he who strongly holds tight, is taken out from the mud soiling the world and saved. This golden heavenly saving chain is the Rosary. May the blessed Rosary beads be always on us, travel with us, give a sweet respite to our fatigues, precede and follow all our affairs, be at the top of any other love…I hold in my hands the token of my salvation: I have Mary’s Rosary in my hands, O Jesus, my Redeemer; and with this token of salvation I do not mistrust your pardon.”

“Kindly deign to hear us, O Mary! Jesus has placed in your hands all the treasures of His grace and His mercies. You are seated a crowned Queen, at the right Hand of your Son, resplendent with immortal glory above all the Choirs of Angels. You extend your dominion throughout the heavens and the earth and all creatures are subject to you. You are omnipotent by grace and therefore You can help us. Were you not willing to help us, since we are ungrateful children and undeserving of your protection, we would not know to whom to turn. Your Mother’s heart would not permit to see us your children, lost. The Infant whom we see on your knees and the mystical Rosary, upon which we gaze at your hand, inspire confidence in us that we shall be heard. And we confide fully in you, we abandon ourselves as helpless children into the arms of the most tender of mothers, and on this day, we expect from you graces we so long for…”  (Pasquale Mocerino. “The Blessed Bartolo Longo.” P.59-60)

And so we pray:

“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!
