February 8 – Our Lady of Casimir (Poland, 1411)

The Virgin Mary protected Sri Lanka during World War II

On February 8, 2014, Pope Francis received in audience at the Vatican a group of Catholics from Sri Lanka living in Italy, on a pilgrimage to Rome for the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the consecration of the Church of Sri Lanka to the Blessed Virgin.

Three shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary are important centers of pilgrimage for Catholics in Sri Lanka: Our Lady of Madhu (northwest), Our Lady of Matara (south) and Our Lady of Lanka (west). The shrine of Lanka was built in thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary for protecting Sri Lanka from invasion during World War II.

The French archbishop of Colombo (Sri Lanka’s capital), Mgr Jean Marie Masson (1938-1947), an Oblate of Mary Immaculate (OMI), had vowed in 1940 that if the island escaped the horrors of war he would build a basilica to the Virgin as a votive offering.

Under his leadership, the island was dedicated to Mary, and in 1946 he received the green light from the Vatican to build the church and dedicate it to the Virgin Mary under the title of “Our Lady of Lanka.” In 1948, Pope Pius XII proclaimed the Virgin of Sri Lanka protectress of the island nation.

Pope and Patriarch’s encounter is ‘sign of hope’ for all Christians

Tribulation Times

February 8, 2016

(Joh 17:20-23) And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me. That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them: that, they may be one, as we also are one. I in them, and thou in me: that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.

POPE FRANCIS: “I ask you to support with a prayer my trip to Mexico, which begins in a few days, and my meeting in Havana with dear brother Kirill”.


NEWS.VAPope and Patriarch’s encounter is ‘sign of hope’ for all Christians

The Vatican and the Russian Orthodox Church announced on Friday that Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill will hold a historic first encounter in Cuba on February 12th. A statement released jointly in Moscow and in Rome said the meeting will mark “an important stage in relations” between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches and a “sign of hope for all people of good will”.

Pope Francis announced at the start of the Jubilee  year of mercy that he himself intended to make some practical gestures showing God’s mercy to the world on one Friday of each month. Friday February 12th may prove to be the most significant of all those gestures, as the leader of the Catholic world and the head of the largest Orthodox Church meet together to show that, despite the issues still dividing them, they are determined to pursue the path of mercy, forgiveness and the restoration of full Christian unity.

The historic encounter has been years in the making, at least since the fall of the Soviet Union, when Pope John Paul II first expressed his desire to visit Russia and further the reconciliation of East and Western Christianity which officially divided in 1054. Since then there have been several behind-the-scenes attempts to orchestrate a meeting between popes and patriarchs, but political and religious tensions continued to stand in the way.

Following a significant warming of relations – Cardinal Koch of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity travelled to Moscow and Metropolitan Hilarion came to Rome four times last year – the opportunity arose for a meeting on neutral territory in Cuba. The island nation was a key ally of Moscow during the Cold War and more recently Pope Francis played an important role in the rapprochement between Washington and Havana.

The Pope will stop over at Havana airport en route to Mexico City, while Patriarch Kirill will arrive the previous day at the start of a visit to three Latin American nations. They will have a two hour private conversation, in Spanish and Russian, with just their interpreters and closest advisers present in the airport salon. They will exchange gifts and sign a joint declaration before speaking briefly with journalists to share their impressions and expectation. Both leaders have asked Christians everywhere to pray for this encounter, a practical sign of healing, forgiveness and great hope for the future.

Mary TV Daily Reflection 2/8/2016

(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2016

J.M.J.

February 8, 2016
St. Jerome Emiliani
St. Josephine Bakhita
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
January 25, 2016 “Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free to in freedom decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
Our Lady called us in the January 25 message to return to God and to His commandments. That is what Lent is all about. Fr. Leon gave a very practical and concrete teaching to us this week in his “Musings” about how to live Lent, so that we will return to God and His commandments in Justice. I think his words will help us to dive into Lent with both feet!
 
Father Leon Pereira, “Medjugorje Muses from Fr. Leon”, February 5, 2016:
 
Praise be Jesus and Mary!   Hello, I’m Father Leon Pereira speaking to you from Medjugorje. Next week on Wednesday, we begin the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. Now Lent, as you know, is a season of prayer and penitence. Forty days, and the forty days are counted from Ash Wednesday until Holy Saturday inconclusive – but excluding the Sundays. That’s the only way you could make it 40 days.
 
Now I know people have different ideas about what Lent is. Well, I’ll tell you a few things from my own….but not necessarily my own….some of this is gleaned from the Catechism. You know in Lent we traditionally give up things. And sometimes you might hear people telling you rather than giving up something it’s more important to take on something – to do something extra. Now this might sound like wisdom but when it comes to Lent, it’s not. Doing something extra – that’s fine. Do it whenever you’d like, even in Lent if you’d like.   But Lent is about giving up something – a sacrifice – and making a sacrifice is different from taking on an additional role.
 
Making a sacrifice costs us something. And sometimes it also restores a certain balance. Now, when we do the traditional Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, all three have to do with the virtue of justice.
 
Prayer: Prayer is what we owe to God in justice. We are creatures. We are dependent, rational creatures and we owe God prayer. Of course when you talk about it as owing something it doesn’t sound very exciting as though we are paying it grudgingly. No, I don’t mean that. We should pay it joyfully. But it is something we owe God in justice. And so that is why the virtue of religion is part of the virtue of justice, according to St. Thomas. We pray because we owe everything we are to God, everything that we have. We are utterly dependent on Him. And the more we recognize this, the less deluded we are, even the less insane we are. So that’s what prayer is.
 
Fasting: Fasting in a sense you could say what we owe in justice to ourselves.   Because we don’t need so much of the stuff we have. Think about the meals you have. Do you ever waste food? Do you ever leave things on your plate uneaten? Maybe this is less likely in your own home. But when you go out to a buffet, or buffet for Americans viewers…. Do you take on more than you can actually eat? Are your eyes bigger than your stomach, and you waste stuff? Do you waste food? And if so, why? Why do you do that? Why do we do that?
 
Fasting is about saying to God, “I love you more than even my earthly appetites.”   Yes, we all need food, air and water. But you can live without some kinds of food. You can live without most kinds of drink. Maybe at least for one day – one day a week. Maybe even two days a week. The early Christians used to fast on two days a week, Wednesdays and Fridays….. !n the “Didache”, the teachings of the 12 apostles, written roughly between AD 50 and AD 100, it says, “You shall fast on Wednesdays and Fridays.” Fasting is a discipline of the church right from the very beginning. We do this not to torture ourselves but to show God that we love Him more than the other things that we desire. Almost every day you wouldn’t forget to eat, would you? I mean, very few people forget to eat. I once heard an American comedian say, “Forget to eat? It takes a special kind of stupid to forget to eat!” And I think that’s true. It would take a special kind of stupid to forget to eat!
 
We don’t forget to eat or to drink. We don’t forget these things and yet we can say, “Oh, yes, I went through the whole day and I forgot to pray.” So there we go. We fast, in justice, to show God that what we really need, in justice, is Him. It’s not to torture ourselves, or to make a big fuss about it. Remember that when you fast make sure that your left hand doesn’t know what your right hand is doing. Don’t make a fuss, don’t put on a sad face. Don’t moan and whine, and tell people, “Oh, I’m fasting today. Aren’t I marvelous?” Because then it is pointless.
 
Almsgiving: Then the third thing, alms giving….what we owe in justice to our neighbor. So almsgiving is not just giving money to the poor. Do you give money to everybody who begs from you? Well, the Gospels say to give to everybody who asks of you. Actually Pope Francis says as well to give to people who asks things of you. Of course sometimes you have to make a rational judgment about this. Is the person asking you this because they are a drug addict? By you giving money to them are you actually enabling them to go and buy more drugs? To perpetuate their misery. Or are they an alcoholic? Then you are helping to fuel their addiction.
 
Maybe sometime instead of giving them money, invite them out to dinner. Say to them, “Come and join me.” And take them in and eat with them. You might get certain looks, but who cares? Who cares how people look at you? We should be more concerned with how God looks at us. How the angels look at us. Think about considerations like that.
 
So if you don’t want to give out money because you are uncertain, give out food. Give out help. Give your time, talk to people. Talk to the homeless. Talk to them like they are normal people, because most people ignore them and treat them like they are dirt. Worse than the dirt underneath your shoes. Treat them with human dignity.
 
You remember a couple of years ago there was a big fuss in the media because this policeman in New York bought a pair of shoes for a beggar. First of all people admired him, but really we need more people like him. People who don’t count the cost, who are willing to go that extra mile. But more than buying a pair of shoes, what that policeman did was talk to that man. He treated him as his brother, as his neighbor. This is a very important thing.
 
So in the season of Lent, these forty days of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, let’s remember these works of mercy, these works of Justice indeed. I categorize them as works of Justice rather than works of Mercy. But in the Year of Mercy, I would have to say that even these things that we do in Lent, they are really more to do with Justice than with Mercy. Because Mercy means going the extra mile, doing things you don’t necessarily have to do. And Justice says these are things that we ought to do. And these things of Lent, we ought to do. We need to do.
 
To them you add the works of Mercy. These are great. Emphasize them. But don’t think that by exercising these three works, prayer, fasting and almsgiving, you are doing anyone any favors. These are not works of mercy as such. The only favor you are doing, is to yourself. Because you are treating yourself as you deserve to be treated. You are putting yourself more in touch with reality. Therefore you are making yourself more sane.
 
Now some of you might ask, am I implying that we don’t have to do some of these things on Sundays? Sundays are not counted as part of these forty days. They are still Sunday’s of Lent, even if they are not in Lent. Or is it phrased the other way around. I know the Church phrases it quite carefully. But I know these Sundays are during the season of Lent. Certainly we shouldn’t fast on Sunday. That is forbidden by the First Council of Nicaea. We do not fast on Sunday. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection. But still you can make sacrifices. You could eat less. You could not eat some of your favorite things.
 
And also I haven’t even talked about what people traditionally do in Lent, giving up chocolates. You know if you don’t even like chocolate, if you don’t eat it very much, why even bother giving it up for Lent? It has to cost. It has to cost you something. So give up something that you actually like. Give up television, Facebook, the internet, emails, Instagram! I don’t know what people do actually on the internet. But whatever it is that you do, if you like it, and you do it, and you are addicted to it you like it so much, give it up. Show God that He matters more to you than Instagram or Facebook. And if you can’t do that it doesn’t say something very good, if Facebook means more to you than God. So make a real sacrifice this Lent, and do it with love and don’t tell a soul. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen!        
 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The Blessed Virgin Mary herself confirmed this dogma

* February 7 – Blessed Pius IX, Pope of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception (d. 1878)  * The Blessed Virgin Mary herself confirmed this dogma  —-- A Moment with Mary --
Une Minute avec Marie

February 7 – Blessed Pius IX, Pope of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception (d. 1878)

The Blessed Virgin Mary herself confirmed this dogma 

Pope Pius IX was born in Senigallia, Italy, on May 13, 1792. He died at the Vatican on February 7, 1878, at the age of 85. His 31-year pontificate is the longest in the history of the papacy, after that of Peter, according to tradition. Pius IX is also the pope who proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.

In the bull Ineffabilis Deus, published on December 8, 1854, Pius IX solemnly declared, by virtue of his apostolic authority, that the Blessed Virgin Mary was conceived free from original sin. This dogma of the Immaculate Conception is often confused with the virginal conception of Jesus at the Annunciation.

Three years later, between February 11th and July 16, 1858, a young, illiterate girl from Lourdes called Bernadette Soubirous affirmed that she saw “a beautiful lady” in the small grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes, France, who told her in the local Gascon Occitan dialect: “Que soi era Immaculada Concepciou.” (I am the Immaculate Conception.)

Pius IX also convened the first Vatican Council, which defined papal infallibility. He was declared “blessed” by the Catholic Church in 2000.

Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.”                                                                                 -Luke 5:1-11

Sister Monica of the Sisters of Charity with a mother and child in Cîté Soleil, Haiti.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus teaches from Simon’s boat. Jesus turns to Simon and tells him where to lower the fishing nets. Simon and others have been fishing all night and have not caught anything. When Simon ultimately obeys Jesus and lowers his nets into the deeper water as directed, they catch so many fish that the nets begin to tear!

Simon Peter becomes a follower of Jesus immediately. He calls Jesus “Lord”—the title given to Jesus after his Resurrection—and protests his worthiness to be in Jesus’ presence.   In the people whom Jesus chose to be his closest friends—his disciples—we see many of the characteristics of ordinary human beings; people like Sister Monica of the Daughters of Charity in Cîté Soleil, Haiti. Working with CMMB, she sets an example of faith, humility and hope. Surely Sister Monica is another one of God’s disciples, meant to “catch people” in one of the poorest communities in Haiti. Sister Monica’s net is made of love, compassion and dignity. She is able to draw women and children toward her, and show them that our Lord is everywhere.

As Christians, we participate in the mission of the Church when we bring people to Christ through the example and positive influence of our lives. Let’s remember to use the gifts God gave us to transform into better people. If we can do that, we can be the disciples through whom God will lead others to Jesus and his kingdom. If you haven’t already, please join our community conversations on Facebook and Twitter, and explore ways to join our movement.

Yours in grace,
