Dear Family of Mary!
Today in the United States, we vote to elect a president and vice president. Our country seems to be deeply divided and hurting. I believe that many countries are in the same state right now. Division and strife seem to be growing like a cancer everywhere. We know that the author of this strife and division is the devil himself. He is a powerful adversary. But he will be beaten by a Woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars. And that Woman is Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
And how blessed are we to have this Woman, this Mother with us. Our Lady in Medjugorje has been guiding those of us who will listen to her call since 1981. Her words cut through all our divisions and show the way of love. Take as an example this message from July 25, 2020:
“Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope. Little children take the Cross in your hands. May it be your encouragement for love to always win, in a special way now when the Cross and faith are rejected. You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive, and a new world of peace is possible. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son, Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2020)
Our Lady is with us as our Queen, the Woman clothed with the sun!! And as Queen she will triumph over Satan and free her children at last from his control.
In this moment of history, we need to celebrate our Queen and stay very close to her. So, I am sharing a beautiful prayer to Our Lady, Queen of Heaven, written by Pope Pius XII. There is power in declaring the truth about Our Lady and about God’s plan for us. The Father wants Our Lady to be our Queen, in a practical and real way. Her rule over us will protect us from Satan and defeat his plans.
So today, let’s pray this prayer many times for our poor world, so under attack:
Prayer to Mary, Queen of Heaven by Pope Pius XII
From the depths of this vale of tears where sorrowing humanity makes weary progress, through the surges of this sea of ours, endlessly buffeted by the winds of passion, we raise our eyes to you, O most beloved Mother Mary, to be comforted by the contemplation of your glory and to hail you as Queen of heaven and earth, Queen of mankind.
With legitimate filial pride, we wish to exalt your queenship and to recognize it as due to the sovereign excellence of your whole being, O dearest one, truly mother of him who is King by right, by inheritance and by conquest.
Reign, O Mother and Queen, by showing us the path of holiness and by guiding and assisting us that we may never stray from it.
In the heights of heaven you exercise your primacy over the choirs of angels who acclaim you as their sovereign, and over the legions of saints who delight in beholding your dazzling beauty. So, too, reign over the entire human race, above all by opening the path of faith to those who do not yet know your Divine Son.
Reign over the Church, which acknowledges and extols your gentle dominion and has recourse to you as a safe refuge amid the calamities of our day. Reign especially over that part of the Church which is persecuted and oppressed; give it strength to bear adversity, constancy never to yield under unjust compulsion, light to avoid falling into the snares of the enemy, firmness to resist overt attack, and at every moment unwavering faithfulness to your kingdom.
Reign over men’s minds, that they may seek only what is true; over their wills, that they may follow solely what is good; over their hearts, that they may love nothing but what you yourself love.
Reign over individuals and over families, as well as over societies and nations; over the assemblies of the powerful, the counsels of the wise, as over the simple aspirations of the humble.
Reign in the streets and in the squares, in the cities and the villages, in the valleys and in the mountains, in the air, on land and on the sea; and hear the pious prayers of all those who recognize that yours is a reign of mercy, in which every petition is heard, every sorrow comforted, every misfortune relieved, every infirmity healed, and in which, at a gesture from your gentle hands, from death itself there arises smiling life.
Obtain for us that all who now in every corner of the world acclaim and hail you Queen and Lady may one day in heaven enjoy the fullness of your kingdom in the vision of your Divine Son, who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, live and reign forever and ever. Amen
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
