July 29, 2021 Reflection – “Our Lady, Champion General”

Our Lady, Champion General

July 29, 2021
Sts. Martha, Mary and Lazarus

Dear Family of Mary!

Here again is the message from Our Lady for July 25, 2021:

“Dear children! I am calling you to be prayer for all those who do not pray. Little children, witness with your lives the joy that you are mine and God will heed your prayers and give you peace in this peaceless world where pride and selfishness reign. Little children, you be generous and be the love of my love, so that pagans can feel that you are mine and convert to my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2021)

I have noticed in this most recent message, that Our Lady is giving out orders with vigor!

“…Be prayer for all those who do not pray!”

“…Witness with your lives the joy that you are mine!”

“…You be generous and be the love of my love…”

She is giving us commands, much like a general in a battle would do. We are her children, and also her infantrymen. She has a job for us to do. And it is all about winning a battle. It is a battle for souls.

Fr. Leon spoke about the battle that Our Lady is fighting with us on this earth in his homily of All Saints Day, November 1, 2020, at English Mass. It is a moving homily. Here is the link:


I just want to share the transcription of part of that homily, in which Fr. Leon talks about Our Lady as a commander in the battle:

The scriptures apply to Our Lady – popularized by the Legion of Mary; there’s a clue in the word “Legion,” again, army term – it says, in the Song of Songs, Chapter 6, Verse 10:

“Who is she that comes forth as the morning rising,
Fair as the moon, bright as the sun,
Terrible as an army set in battle array?”

And lest we think that this is some kind of western exaggeration, the eastern church goes much further. They call Our Lady: “Yper-machịtikós Stratịgós.” Now, “Yper-machịtikós;” “Super-fighting.” “Stratịgós,” this is where we get the word “strategy” from; it means, “general.” “Super-fighting General.” Or, really, we translate this as, “Champion General,” or “Champion Leader.” In the “Akathistos Hymn,” we say that again and again.  “Champion General.”

Remember in some medieval paintings of Our Lady, she is holding a huge bat and she’s beating these demons; she’s whacking the stuffing out of them. This is who she is, Our Champion General. We are at war, and it is a disaster if we don’t realize it. (Fr. Leon – Homily for All Saints Day 2020)

We are at war and it is a disaster if we don’t realize it! Father Leon’s words give us great clarity. This is a battle between the Woman and her seed and Satan and his seed! Our lives are lived in a battle zone. It is a battle for eternal life.

I feel very strongly that Our Lady has stepped out as our Champion General in these days. She is leading us in a battle for souls. And she needs us to follow her leadership. She has given us three commands in this message. They must be important for her to speak so directly to us. We need to try our best to do as she says!!

“…Be prayer for all those who do not pray!”

“…Witness with your lives the joy that you are mine!”

“…You be generous and be the love of my love…”

Let’s ask the Holy Spirit again to help us:

Prayer for the Help of the Holy Spirit

O God, send forth your Holy Spirit into my heart that I may perceive, into my mind that I may remember, and into my soul that I may meditate. Inspire me to speak with piety, holiness, tenderness and mercy. Teach, guide and direct my thoughts and senses from beginning to end. May your grace ever help and correct me, and may I be strengthened now with wisdom from on high, for the sake of your infinite mercy. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
