Dear Family of Mary!
 
Here is Our Lady’s message to Mirjana Soldo of May 2nd, 2016:

 

Dear children, My motherly heart desires your true conversion and a firm faith so that you may be able to spread love and peace to all those who surround you. But, my children, do not forget: each of you is a unique world before the Heavenly Father.
 
Therefore, permit the continuous working of the Holy Spirit to work on you. Be my spiritually pure children. In spirituality is beauty. Everything that is spiritual is alive and very beautiful.
 
Do not forget that in the Eucharist, which is the heart of faith, my Son is always with you. He comes to you and breaks the bread with you; because, my children, for your sake He died, He resurrected and is coming anew.
 
These words of mine are familiar to you because they are the truth, and the truth does not change. It is only that many of my children have forgotten it. My children, my words are neither old nor new, they are eternal.
 
Therefore, I invite you, my children, to observe well the signs of the times, to ‘gather the shattered crosses’ and to be apostles of the revelation. 
Thank you.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Consecration Day 5
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
This is Day 5 of our Consecration to Jesus through Mary! We continue to examine our entanglement with the world and the spirit of the world.
 
To whom do we give glory? Do we long to glorify ourselves. This is the spirit of our age. In sports, politics, universities, business, every where we look, glory is being sought or grasped at. But this glory does not last. And once attained, it corrupts the soul.
 
Thomas a Kempis tells us:
 
Truly vainglory is an evil plague, because it draws away from true glory, and robs us of heavenly grace. For, while a man takes complacency in himself, he displeases Thee; while he wants for human applause, he is deprived of true virtues. But true, glory and holy exultation is to glory in Thee, and not in one’s self; to rejoice in Thy Name, but not in one’s own strength. To find pleasure in no creature, save only for Thy sake. Let Thy Name be praised, not mine; let Thy work be magnified, not mine; let Thy Holy Name be blessed, but let nothing be attributed to me of the praise of men. Thou art my glory; Thou art the exultation of my heart; in Thee, will I glory and rejoice all the day; but for myself, I will glory in nothing but in my infirmities. (Book 3, Chapter 40)
 
Giving God the glory is the sound and true way to happiness, because it is living in the truth!
 
Our Lady spoke of this truth in this message:
 
April 02, 2013 “Dear children, I am calling you to be one with my Son in spirit. I am calling you, through prayer, and the Holy Mass when my Son unites Himself with you in a special way, to try to be like Him; that, like Him, you may always be ready to carry out God’s will and not seek the fulfillment of your own. Because, my children, it is according to God’s will that you are and that you exist, and without God’s will you are nothing.

As a mother I am asking you to speak about the glory of God with your life because, in that way, you will also glorify yourself in accordance to His will. Show humility and love for your neighbor to everyone. Through such humility and love, my Son saved you and opened the way for you to the Heavenly Father. I implore you to keep opening the way to the Heavenly Father for all those who have not come to know Him and have not opened their hearts to His love. By your life, open the way to all those who still wander in search of the truth.

My children, be my apostles who have not lived in vain. Do not forget that you will come before the Heavenly Father and tell Him about yourself. Be ready! Again I am warning you, pray for those whom my Son called, whose hands He blessed and whom He gave as a gift to you. Pray, pray, pray for your shepherds. Thank you.”

 
Our Mother is so wise. She tells us, “As a mother I am asking you to speak about the glory of God with your life because, in that way, you will also glorify yourself in accordance to His will. Show humility and love for your neighbor to everyone.” We actually will participate in the glory of God by living in accord with Jesus’ life, by love and humility. There will be enough glory for everyone in heaven. We don’t need it here on earth. The glory here is tainted and meaningless. God’s glory is the real thing!
 
Let us pray:
 
TOTUS TUUS
(Totally Yours)
 
Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.

Marija apparition may 2016
Marija Pavlovic Lunetti greets Our Lady May 1, 2016
May 1st, 2016
Dear Family of Mary TV, Our Lady’s Apostles:
OUR LADY’S MAY 2nd APPARITION TO MIRJANA in MEDJUGORJE
will be recorded live Monday morning 
and then streamed soon afterwards on Mary TV’s channel!
Today, just two hours before Our Lady was to appear to her, Marija invited Mary TV to come and Live stream the apparition….
Even with such short notice thousands of faithful throughout the world joined those at Marija’s Magnificat Center and were also present welcoming her in prayer when she came to Marija (See PS)…. After the apparition Marija, also speaking in English for the sake of Mary TV, said:
“The apparition was a little bit longer than usual. Today is the Feast of St. Joseph. Tomorrow, every second of the month, Our Lady said her apparition [to Mirjana] is for all who do not believe – for all people who don’t pray ­- who don’t adore God. So during moment of apparition when Our Lady looked at us all present, I think we were in a special grace. These days I invite those to pray in a special way because everyone becomes a little more near to Our Lady and we pray for all those who don’t believe, who don’t pray, who don’t adore God, who don’t believe.
“We are also in a day of grace because pilgrims here today at the apparition, tomorrow have a possibility to be at one other time [at an apparition] and Our Lady invites us in a special way to be peace, joy for all who need joy and peace and faith.
“And please pray in a special way for intention of Our Lady.
“We have priests [here], after Our Lady’s blessing, to pray over us and bless us.”
The priests prayed over everyone for an extended period of time…..
I’m told that just when Our Lady came, there was an attempt to break our Live Stream intentionally. So thank you, intercessors, you’re doing your job! Whoever was attempting to break our Live Stream wasn’t successful.
I’m reminded of the Ukrainian priest, an exorcist, who seemed to be beaten by the devil one day, and lost his priesthood. (Fr. Leonid gave his testimony at the 15th International Priests Retreat in Medjugorje. Here is a link to his testimony: http://www.medjugorje.hr/en/news/the-priest-exorcist—i-can-no-longer-live-without-medjugorje,3102.html  ) After a year or two of not being able to function as a priest he was given a ticket to join a group going to Medjugorje.
During an apparition to one of the visionaries he was sitting on a rock on the hill, not able to pray. He reluctantly turned his head towards where the visionary was kneeling just as Our Lady came….and in that instant was healed and received his priesthood back…. He testified at the priest’s retreat that in the most difficult cases of exorcisms now, when it seems nothing is working, he calls on Our Lady of Medjugorje. And she comes! And she says nothing. She doesn’t even exorcise the demons. They flee from her presence….   They can’t abide the love coming out of her eyes….
Pray. Maybe it’s time Mary TV Live Streamed more of Our Lady’s apparitions… allowing her children throughout the world to join her in prayer when she comes….welcoming her as she does exorcisms throughout the world….
God bless you,
Denis Nolan

From CMMB: Sharing Joy and Gratitude from One of Our Volunteers

 

GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER. – Psalm 107:1
Our volunteer doctor in South Sudan, Dr. Rachael Consoli has completed her year of service with CMMB.  We’re honored to share her letter this week:
One year is over. Today was my last day at the Hospital.  I’m so grateful for this amazing experience.  My friend Dr. Daniel Doyle, a cardiologist from Australia,  who also comes to South Sudan to help sent me such an appropriate story today.  It is called the “The mighty life of Oliver Sacks captured by Norman Doidge.”  Appropriate for me today because it is about being grateful for our experiences and our journey. The last part reads:
I hope when I die someday, they will say, “And Rachael died…..full of years”.  I feel full of joy, gratitude and full of years. I am so sad to leave these beautiful people and this broken country. As you know I have been all over the world, to every continent except Antarctica and here in Ezo, Western Equatoria, South Sudan I lived really “Golden” months of my entire life.

I am so grateful to God that I was allowed to know this and live this gratefully as I was here, that it was a special time in my life. I treasured every moment and lived every moment to the fullest. Everyone was so wonderful to me.

God the Creator of the Universe, the Almighty one looks at little, insignificant, sinful, selfish me and loves me!!  Who am I to deserve this treatment of favor?

Thank you, South Sudan.

Thank you, people of Ezo, Nzara, Yambio.
Thank you, CMMB.
Thank you, Diocese of Tombura- Yambio.
Thank you, Comboni Missionary Nuns.
Thank you, Staff of Hospital in Ezo and in Nzara.
Thank you to all the patients who entrusted their lives to me. Their health to me.

International Planned Parenthood Working Hand in Hand with the Coercive Population Control Machine in China

 

Women's Rights Without Frontiers | Forced Abortion Is Not A Choice | www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org

A National Protest of Planned Parenthood was held this past Saturday, April 23. At the protest site in Concord, CA Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, spoke about her conviction that, posturing as a champion of “choice” in the US, International Planned Parenthood’s true colors show boldly elsewhere on the globe, particularly the People’s Republic of China.

In China, abortion has little to do with a woman’s choice. The world was shocked in 2012 when WRWF released the photograph of Feng Jianmei lying next to her forcibly aborted baby, showing to millions the true face of the Chinese Communist Party.

Meanwhile, International Planned Parenthood is not merely present in China, but their affiliate organization literally works in tandem with the government’s coercive One Child (now Two-Child) Policy. MORE

YES, I WANT TO HELP END GENDERCIDE AND FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA!

Your donation enables Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to continue to be a voice for the voiceless women and children of China. This huge effort comes at a cost. We need your support. Please give as generously as you can. Every donation makes a difference!

Mary TV May 1, 2016 Reflection – Day 4 – Comprehend that you have nothing!

Consecration- Day 4
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
This is Day 4 of our consecration. Today we contemplate what we are of ourselves, without God’s grace. St. Thomas a Kempis wrote:
 
This most assuredly, I may truly think and say: Lord I am nothing, I can do nothing of myself, that is good, but I am in all things defective and ever tend to nothing. And unless I am assisted and interiorly instructed by Thee, I become wholly tepid and relaxed, but Thou, O Lord, art always the same, and endurest unto eternity, ever good, just and holy, doing all things well, justly and holily and disposing them in wisdom. (Book 3, Chapters 7, 40)
 
St. Faustina has also commented on our nothingness:
 
Jesus, Eternal Light, enlighten my mind, strengthen my will, inflame my heart and be with me as You have promised, for without You I am nothing. You know, Jesus, how weak l am. l do not need to tell You this, for You yourself know perfectly well how wretched I am. It is in You that all my strength lies. (Diary 495)
 
It is only when we begin to comprehend how great God is that we begin to understand our nothingness. Being creatures, made out of nothing by God, we cannot claim anything as our own. We are truly nothing without God, because He created us from nothing, and without Him we would return to nothing.
 
Our Lady told us as much in this message:
 
July 2, 2007 “Dear children! In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The first station on that way, my children, is confession. Reject your arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children, that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that you have and that you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hands so that, together, we may climb the mountain* and win. Thank you.”
 
These words are sobering, but also freeing. Through humility and meekness we can hand over our nothingness to God, and live in simplicity and peace. We can grow in our unity with God through our awareness of our complete dependence upon Him. Our Lady can show us the way. “Follow my Son and give me your hands so that, together, we may climb the mountain and win.”
 
Let us pray
 
TOTUS TUUS
(Totally Yours)
 
Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.
