St. Martha

 

Dear Family of Mary!

 

 “Dear children! You are not aware of the graces that you are living at this time in which the Most High is giving you signs for you to open and convert. Return to God and to prayer, and may prayer begin to reign in your hearts, families and communities, so that the Holy Spirit may lead and inspire you to every day be more open to God’s will and to His plan for each of you. I am with you and with the saints and angels intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2014)

 

Our Lady never leaves the basics when she talks to us. She knows that we are like sheep that wander about. We are sheep who need to be guided and led, or we will get lost in the maze of everyday life. Her most basic call to us is to prayer. She tells us”Return to God and to prayer…” Why? Because we wander off. We get distracted by the things of this life and just wander away from God and prayer.

 

She also tells us that she is interceding for us along with the saints and angels. Whew! That makes me feel safer. And today’s saint is someone who can really help us to return to prayer. St. Martha was among Jesus’ closest friends. He often stayed with her family, and she hosted him faithfully. But poor Martha, she was once corrected by Jesus, and that correction has remained as an important correction for all of us down to this day.

 

“Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10: 38-42)

 

 

Martha let her work get in the way of her relationship with Jesus. Mary on the other hand, sat at Jesus’ feet and listened to him. Mary had learned the essence of prayer, sitting at the Lord’s feet. Mary wasn’t worried about “doing” for Jesus. She wanted to “be” with him.

 

Fr. Jacque Philippe writes about prayer and “being” with God in this way:

 

Faithfulness to prayer is extremely valuable because it helps us preserve the element of gratuitousness in our lives. As I said earlier, praying means wasting our time for God. Basically this is an attitude of loving freely, and not for our own benefit. This idea of gratuitousness is endangered today, when everything is evaluated by profitability, results, and performance. That ends up by being destructive for human life.

 

True love cannot be reduced to the category of what is useful. In telling of our Lord’s instituting the twelve Apostles, the Gospel of Mark says Jesus chose them first of all “to be with him” (Mk 3:14)….To pray is to spend time freely with God just for the joy of being together. It is to love, because giving our time means giving our lives. Love does not mean primarily to do something for the other person, it means being there with them. Prayer trains us to be there with God, in a simple act of loving attention. (Jacques Philippe. “Thirsting for Prayer”. Scepter Publishing. P. 11-12)

 

Wasting time with God! When I heard this it immediately diffused a great difficulty I was having in prayer. I, like Martha, get distracted by all of my “duties” and I can wander away from prayer, from sitting at the feet of Jesus. I need to embrace the idea of wasting time on Jesus. Just wasting it, letting it go, giving it to Him. What a relief it is! It must have been a relief for Martha as well!!

 

Here is another message from Our Lady about prayer:

 

“Dear children! Today I invite you to decide to give time patiently for prayer. Little children, you cannot say you are mine and that you have experienced conversion through my messages if you are not ready to give time to God every day. I am close to you and I bless you all. Little children, do not forget that if you do not pray you are not close to me, nor are you close to the Holy Spirit who leads you along the path to holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.”(July 25, 1994)

 

Our Lady understands about duties and work, but she is not fooled into thinking they are more important than patiently giving time to God in prayer! She has patiently been directing us to sit at the feet of her Son for all these years. If we still need to be reminded, she will remind us.

 

Mother, help us to learn to waste time on your Son, Jesus. Pray for us St. Martha that we may learn to sit at the feet of Jesus!

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Novena, Day 3

We pray that our dear priests may always feel the blessing of Mary’s motherly hands and the support of Her motherly heart. (April 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Let us pray: O Jesus, our great High Priest, hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priests. Give them a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of their priestly life.

In their loneliness, comfort them. In their sorrows, strengthen them. In their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show them that they are needed by the Church; they are needed by souls; they are needed for the work of redemption. Amen.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS REPORT: CHINA’S PROMOTION TO TIER 2 “BASELESS AND UNWARRANTED”
The State Department’s annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report has promoted China from a ‘Tier 3’ to a ‘Tier 2 Watch List’ nation. The report appears to attribute this promotion to a technical modification of the One Child Policy:
The PRC government maintained efforts to prevent trafficking in persons. In November 2013, the government modified its birth limitation policy to allow families with one single-child parent to have a second child, a change that may affect future demand for prostitution and for foreign women as brides for Chinese men – both of which may be procured by force or coercion. TIP Report, p. 134.
Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, stated, “The fact that the PRC government tweaked the One Child Policy does not signify that it ‘maintained efforts to prevent trafficking in persons.’ Allowing a relatively small number of families to have a second child will not end gendercide or sexual slavery in China. The selective abortion and abandonment of baby girls is most prevalent in the countryside, where couples already can have a second child if the first child is a girl. Even if the most recent modification were to improve gender ratios at birth, the impact on sexual slavery would not be felt for decades to come. What about all the women and girls who are being trafficked now? The TIP Report does not cite any effective new initiatives by the CCP to help current…” Read More

Attorney General to Investigate Planned Parenthood Teaching Teen Girl S&M Sexn
The Colorado Attorney General says he will investigate a shocking video that busted the Planned Parenthood abortion business, where its staffers are teaching teenagers about S&M-based sexual relationships and concepts such as gagging, whipping and asphyxiation.

In a series of undercover audits, Live Action investigators documented Planned Parenthood counselors and nurses advising our investigators, who the Planned Parenthood staffers thought were minors, on how to practice torture sex. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/28/attorney-general-to-investigate-planned-parenthood-teaching-teen-girl-sm-sex-gagging-and-whipping/

Obama Nominates “Religious Freedom” Ambassador Who Called Protecting Hobby Lobby “Deeply Troubling”
President Barack Obama has nominated a new “Religious Freedom Ambassador,” but his nominee opposes protecting the religious freedoms of the owners of Hobby Lobby, who don’t want to be forced to pay for drugs for their employees that cause abortions.

Obama announced that he will nominate Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein as Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department. Saperstein is a longtime pro-abortion advocate whose group has opposed pro-life legislation. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/28/obama-nominates-religious-freedom-ambassador-who-called-protecting-hobby-lobby-deeply-troubling/

Newborn Comes Back to Life After Doctors Pronounced Him Dead
Nikkita Pereira gave birth to baby Ziah by emergency Caesarean section because his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. Minutes after he was born, however, doctors pronounced little Ziah dead.

After 28 hours in labour the baby’s heartbeat was fading because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and his mother worried it took his life because eight minutes after he was born, hospital staff said his life had ended. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/28/newborn-comes-back-to-life-after-doctors-pronounced-him-dead/

They Rejected Abortion When Told Their Baby Had a Major Medical Issue, Now Here He Is
A few months ago, we brought you the story of a young couple who received the devastating news that their unborn baby had a life-threatening condition called BOO syndrome.

This courageous couple rejected abortion and decided to fight for the life of this innocent child. For the last few months, Emily has been on bed rest and living in an apartment in Cincinnati, Ohio, to be close to the hospital that can save Henry when we is born. Her husband, Kevin, has been living at home in Indiana to continue working to provide for their new family. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/28/they-rejected-abortion-when-told-their-baby-had-a-major-medical-issue-now-here-he-is/

Planned Parenthood Prez Compares Protesting Abortion to Protesting Men’s Colonoscopies
Last weekend, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards appeared with Bill Moyers on the PBS program Moyers & Company. The longtime PBS omnipresence pestered Richards with the fact that the abortion opponents are winning, placing limits on abortion in many states.

But Richards really grew silly when Moyers asked about the Supreme Court “junking” the Massachusetts law putting a 35-foot buffer zone outside abortion clinics. She somehow compared women getting abortions to men seeking colonoscopies. Why on Earth would anyone protest men getting an intestinal polyp removed? How does that compare to a baby? http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/28/planned-parenthood-prez-compares-protesting-abortion-to-protesting-mens-colonoscopies/

The Day My Mom Told My Siblings and Me She Had an Abortion

There’s nothing pro life about ignoring the poor

“Many people worried that the Holy Father was saying those “moral and religious imperatives” don’t matter anymore. Other people wanted to believe he was saying that. But of course they do matter. Pope Francis believes they matter. What he was saying is that, in the task of bringing the world to Jesus Christ, we witness best when we save the unborn and when we feed their mothers.”
Lila Rose discusses Oregon Planned Parenthood’s dangerous sex advice to teens

In the investigation, an actress posing as a 15-year-old tells various Planned Parenthood workers across the country that “her boyfriend” wants to “try new things” sexually.

July 28, 2014 A.D.

Our Lady of Medjugorje said on Friday, July 25, 2014,:

the Most High is giving you signs for you to open and convert…”

This time is a great time of conversion. Recently, on July 8, 2014, Medjugorje visionary Ivan, spoke to the pilgrims in Medjugorje and shared the following:


“Please, I don’t want you looking at me today to think that I am a perfect man and a saint because I am not. I am just trying to be better. I am just trying to be holier everyday. See this desire for holiness is engraved profoundly in my heart. Certainly I haven’t converted myself for a simple fact of seeing our Blessed Mother and being a visionary. I know that my conversion, as well as the conversion of us all as pilgrims, is a program and a process for the rest of our lives. We all have to decide for good, change ourselves everyday, everyday give up sinning and remove everything which is an obstacle on our path to holiness. We all need to open ourselves on a daily basis to the Holy Spirit and accept the Word of Christ and live it in our life, in our families and in us to grow in holiness.”

Even as the visionaries themselves strive everyday to convert, so must we in this time when the Most High is giving us signs to convert, the Greatest Sign being Our Lady Herself. Our Lady said on February 20, 1985:

“I give you advice; I would like you to try to conquer some fault each day. If your fault is to get angry at everything, try each day to get angry less. If your fault is not to be able to study, try to study. If your fault is not to be able to obey, or if you cannot stand those who do not please you, try on a given day to speak with them. If your fault is not to be able to stand an arrogant person, you should try to approach that person. If you desire that person to be humble, be humble yourselves. Show that humility is worth more than pride.

“Thus, each day, try to go beyond, and to reject every vice from your heart. Find out which are the vices that you most need to reject…”

With Our Lady’s blessing, each day go beyond.

In the Love of Our Lady,

A Friend of Medjugorje

Dear Family of Mary!

 

We are approaching an exciting time in Medjugorje! The Youth Festival will begin on July 31st. Mary TV will stream as much of the events as possible. Please pray for our team, as they will be working very hard to provide a link for us all to the festival.

 

And Our Lady’s actual birthday (as she shared with the visionaries) is on August 5. This date does not conflict with Our Lady’s Birthday Feast in the Church which is September 8. The Church celebrates not so much the date, as the fact that Mary was born!! But Our Lady shared her birth date with the visionaries in order to rejoice with them as her children. Here is what happened on August 5, 1984:

 

Sunday, August 5, 1984
The celebration of the second millennium of Mary’s birthday was preceded by three days of fasting and continuous prayer. Seventy priests heard confessions without rest; there were a great number of conversions.
“Never in my life have I cried with sorrow, as I have cried this evening with joy. Thank you!”

 

In anticipation of this day Our Lady had said:
“The priest who will hear confession will have great joy on that day.”

 

During these 3 days of fasting and continuous prayer the visionaries say the Blessed Virgin was very Joyful. Our Lady repeated:
“I am very happy, continue, continue! Continue to pray and to fast.”

 

Her joy seemed to have reached a peak Sunday, August 5th. Like a flower when it blooms, and full of joy, Our Lady said:
“Continue, continue, open your hearts, ask God and I will ask for you.”

 

You can see how important the priests are to Our Lady. It was their ministry of hearing Confessions that made her birthday wonderful! Our friend Teresa Grodi understands the love Our Lady has for her priests, and decided that a very good birthday gift to give her would be a novena of prayer for priests, based on some of Mirjana’s recent messages. She wrote this novena and has allowed me to share it. It was to start yesterday, July 27. So we will have to do two days-worth today to catch up!!

 

And when Olga heard us begin the novena yesterday on the Rosary, she wrote with such joy that not only will the novena end on Our Lady’s birthday, but the last day of the novena prayers, August 4, is the feast day of St. John Vianney, patron of priests!!  Isn’t Divine Providence wonderful!!! 

 

I am sending the entire novena today, so you can pray it all week. We will also pray it during our Daily Rosary:

 

Novena for Priests 
(based on Our Lady’s 2nd of the month messages)

 

 

Prayer to be prayed each day:

 

O Jesus, our great High Priest, hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priests. Give them a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of their priestly life.

In their loneliness, comfort them. In their sorrows, strengthen them. In their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show them that they are needed by the Church; they are needed by souls; they are needed for the work of redemption. Amen.

 

Day 1

We pray that our dear priests may always be an example of humility for us. (July 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 2

We pray that our dear priests may always lead us with a pure heart on the way of truth and love – the way of Mary’s Son, Jesus. (June 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 3

We pray that our dear priests may always feel the blessing of Mary’s motherly hands and the support of Her motherly heart. (April 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 4

We pray that we may place our trust in the blessed hands of the priests. (March 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 5

We pray for our dear priests, that the ray of God’s grace may illuminate their ways. (February 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 6

We pray that our dear priests may always have love for us as Mary’s Son, Jesus, had, and showed by giving His life for our salvation. (November 2, 2013)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 7

We pray that we have an increase in trust in our shepherds as Mary’s Son, Jesus, trusted when He chose them, and we pray that they may have the strength and the love to lead us. (October 2, 2014)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 8

We pray evil may not be permitted to separate us from our priests. (September 2, 2013)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

Day 9

Finally, we pray for an increase in love for our shepherds, in our hearts, in the hearts of our families, and in the whole world. We pray that, at this difficult time, the name of Jesus may be glorified under their guidance. We pray that we may extend the joy of love and support to our shepherds, just as Jesus has asked them to extend it to us! (August 2 and July 2, 2013)
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

 

God bless you all, and let’s give this great gift to Our Lady, the gift of prayer for her Priest-Sons.

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

I was pro choice to the coreand then I had an abortion


My abortion became my deep dark secret. Carrying the burden certainly wasn’t easy. I felt as though I had a sickness and if I were to say, “I’m sick and I need to be healed,” then I’d quickly be reinforced that I made the right choice. My moral intuition and the emptiness in my heart told me that my decision was wrong.
