Grasp for the Rosary

Dear Family of Mary!
In the first reading today we hear about the state of humanity in the time of Noah. It is a very depressing picture.
Genesis 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10 –
“When the Lord saw how great was man’s wickedness on earth, and how no desire that his heart conceived was ever anything but evil, he regretted that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was grieved.
So the Lord said: ‘I will wipe out from the earth the men whom I have created, and not only the men, but also the beasts and the creeping things and the birds of the air, for I am sorry that I made them.’ But Noah found favor with the Lord.
Then the Lord said to Noah: “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for you alone in this age have I found to be truly just. ”
As I read this gospel, I had a vivid picture of the poison that Satan had sewn into the hearts of Adam and Eve and their descendants. It was putrid green and venomous. Humanity was no match for Satan’s cunning and the human race was in a terrible state. (This makes me feel so sad…) So God wanted to start over. He sent the flood and destroyed all the families of the earth except Noah’s family. There was a new hope of a better tomorrow.
But that poison was so strong that it began to overtake humanity once again. Over the centuries, the world fell into a terrible state. The Father then sent His Son, born of Mary, to bring the antidote! His very body and blood as our food. Perhaps that would be the antidote to human depravity.
And indeed it is the antidote. Our Church, the Christians of the world, have brought much good, much hope. Even today there is hope, even though it seems that Satan again has taken over many hearts. But the Father has now sent Mary, to be a final defense for humanity. A final barrier against evil. She told us in this message her basic strategy in this time of battle:
January 25, 1991 “Dear children! Today, like never before, I invite you to prayer. Let your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God’s blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God’s will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace.”
Our Lady has indeed been a great strength and good for us. But the battle has only increased The stakes are high. We all see it today. But Our Lady is with us still, and she is not giving up. Here is her most recent message, in which she tells us the plain truth once again:
January 25, 2023 “Dear children! Pray with me for peace, because Satan wants war and hatred in hearts and peoples. Therefore, pray and sacrifice your days by fasting and penance, that God may give you peace. The future is at a crossroads, because modern man does not want God. That is why mankind is heading to perdition. You, little children, are my hope. Pray with me, that what I began in Fatima and here may be realized. Be prayer and witness peace in your surroundings, and be people of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
The battle seems to have come to a climax. Our Lady’s call is still the same, her battle plan the same: Pray, fast, do penance, witness peace, and be people of peace! Pray the Rosary so that miracles can abound. This is the time of the Triumph! Many souls are in the balance!! Let us pray, pray, pray!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
