July 1 – Armenian Church: The Transfer of Mary’s Veil

The tallest statue of Mary in Turkey?

Cemil Seboy, candidate of the Party for Justice and Development (AKP) in the region of Izmir (Smyrna, Turkey) stated that, if he was elected in the legislative elections of June 7, 2015, he would sponsor, with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the project to build in the Selcuk district the largest statue in the world dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In statements to the local press, the candidate presented the idea as an attempt to enhance the touristic appeal of the area that is also known for the ruins of ancient Ephesus and the site of Meriem Ana Evi, the “House of the Virgin Mary”, discovered in 1891 through the private revelations of the mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich.

The parliamentary candidate’s whim was inspired by the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado, overlooking the bay of Rio de Janeiro. The several projects presented by the candidate at meetings with potential voters also included the construction of a cable car for tourists to access the top of the hill on which the statue of Our Lady would be erected.

The Example of Large Families

FROM THE ARCHIVES OF NEW OXFORD REVIEW

——————————————————————


The Example of Large Families

“It’s silly to believe that birth control is wrong — as silly as believing it’s wrong to eat oranges.” This was my first belief about birth control.

Read all about it…

If Jesus really does love the little children, if He asks the children to come unto Him, then those adults who are called by His Name should consider whether they ought to be so concerned with forbidding the little ones not merely from coming unto Jesus, but from even existing in the first place.

Dear Family of Mary!

 

“Dear children! Also today the Most High gives me the grace to be able to love you and to call you to conversion. Little children, may God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace; not sorrow but joy and peace must begin to reign in the heart of every person – but without God you will never find peace. Therefore, little children, return to God and to prayer so that your heart may sing with joy. I am with you and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (June 25, 2015)

 

“Little children, may God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace…”

 

It is true that we can choose our tomorrows. Our choices, our acts and thoughts today, set the stage for tomorrow. We are free and so our tomorrows are in our hands.

 

And that is precisely what Our Lady wants us to understand. We must realize that if we choose war, if we choose anxiety or worry, if we try to be in control of our own lives without God, then we will have war, lack of peace, anxiety tomorrow. And the next day and the next day….

 

But if we choose today to pray, to entrust our lives to God, to put Him in the first place in our lives and live today for Him, then we will find Him in the first place tomorrow, and the next day and the day after that. The more we choose God as our Lord, our hope, our love, and our life, the more He will be with us. We will build tomorrows full of His presence and His joy.

 

The key is what we do with today. And so Our Lady tells us that she has been given the grace to call us to conversion. That grace for conversion that comes through Our Lady will help us to choose today to put God in the first place, to give Him total control of our lives and our hearts. That grace of conversion will help us to live today in such a way that tomorrow will be filled with God!

 

I found a wonderful early message that speaks about this daily choice of prayer and surrender to God. It is a delightful, motherly admonition:

 

Wednesday, February 29, 1984

“Pray! It may seem strange to you that I always speak of prayer. And yet I say: pray! Why do you hesitate? In Holy Scripture, you have heard say: ‘Do not worry about tomorrow, each day will have its own worries.’ Then do not worry about the other days. Be content with prayer, I your Mother, will take care of the rest.”

 

“I, your Mother, will take care of the rest.” I believe that she does just that. When we surrender our lives to the Lord and to Mary, they take care of everything. And we build tomorrows filled with hope, joy, and peace.

 

I am reminded of the beautiful “Novena of Surrender to the Will of God” that we prayed together a few months ago. In that novena we prayed, “Jesus, I surrender myself to You. Take care of everything.” This is exactly what Our Lady is suggesting to us again in the June 25, 2015 message. (You can find this novena on our webpage here: Novena )

 

I also think Our Lady’s words are a prayer for us. “May God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace…” She wants us to have tomorrows of peace and joy. She is praying for us, blessing us, that we will choose today to build these tomorrows. Thank you, dearest Mother, for loving us so much.

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

From Mark Mallett: The Hour of Lawlessness

The Hour of Lawlessness

 

A FEW days ago, an American wrote me in the wake of their Supreme Court’s decision to invent the right to same-sex “marriage”:

I have been weeping on and off a good part of this day… as I attempt to go to sleep I am wondering if you could help me understand just where we are in the timeline of events to come….

There are several thoughts on this that have come to me in the silence of this past week. And they are, in part, an answer to this question…

Let our faith not be troubled – A Moment with Mary

June 30 – “Creed of the People of God” pronounced by Paul VI on June 30, 1968

Let our faith not be troubled


The general norm “Through Mary to Jesus” is therefore valid also for the imitation of Christ.

Nevertheless, let our faith not be perturbed, as if the intervention of a creature in every way similar to us, except as regards sin, offended our personal dignity and prevented the intimacy and immediacy of our relationships of adoration and friendship with the Son of God.

Let us rather recognize the “goodness and the love of God the Savior,” who, condescending to our misery, so remote from His infinite sanctity, wished to make it easier for us to imitate it by giving us as a model the human person of His Mother. She, in fact, among human beings, offers the most shining example and the closest to us, of that perfect obedience whereby we lovingly and readily conform with the will of the eternal Father.
