Mary TV: December 10, 2018 Reflection -Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart.

(c)Anthony Zubac 2018
December 10, 2018

Dear Family of Mary!

” …I know that you desire to have a strong faith and to express it in the right way. What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith – then every way in which you express it is proper. Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children; it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God’s creatures…” (December 2, 2018)


Advent is a time of faith. We are waiting on several different levels. We wait for the Second Coming of Christ. We wait for our own particular judgement (when we die). And we wait for the celebration of the Incarnation and Birth of Jesus! Christmas!!! We wait with faith on all three accounts. Faith is what gives meaning and hope in each case.

And so I am really intrigued by Our Lady’s little teaching on faith in the December 2nd message. She seems to understand that Advent is all about faith. And she shows us how we can best relate to it.

She tells us she knows we desire to have a strong faith. She knows that we struggle sometimes in our very challenging world to maintain a strong faith. We live among so many who do not have faith (yet). And there is a river of public opinion that would move us away from our faith in God. This pressure makes us maybe too quiet about our faith. It is not easy to go upstream.

And so she tells us what Jesus would have us know, What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith – then every way in which you express it is proper.” Jesus does not want us to be shy about our faith. But strong faith without sincerity or depth will not be enough. To be sincere means that our faith has become personal. Our faith is not a habit or a way of life that makes us feel safe. No, our faith needs to come out of our personal relationship to the One in whom we believe. Our faith has to rest on Jesus.

And our faith also needs to be deep. What does this mean? I think it means that our faith, our belief in Jesus has to come from the very bottom of our heart, the very bedrock of who we are. Our faith cannot be just one of the things we do in life. It has to be the basis of who we are! A deep faith is one that will never be shaken. Why? Because we have been deeply and powerfully loved by our Savior.

I am also blown away by the next sentences: “Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children…” Imagine! Our faith is a mystery, my faith cannot be understood by anyone else but me. My faith is so intimate that only the Father understands where it comes from and how I got it. My faith is a function of the Father’s love for me and my response to Him. Our God respects each one of us so much that He will never disclose what is in our hearts to others, and He will always be faithful to that intimacy. He sees, He understands, He loves, where no one else can go, the depths of our hearts. And it is from that love that our faith springs.

Only God can love each one of us individually, all the billions of humans He has created are each known and loved by Him intimately and uniquely. No one is unnoticed or unloved. No one.

The only way we can see the faith of another is through the fruits of their lives. “…it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God’s creatures…” It is by our love that we are recognized as people of faith. Our good works and our great-heartedness show the footprints of God’s presence in us. It can’t be counterfeited.

Well, I just love Our Lady’s words on faith. May we all take time in the Advent season to go deeply into ourselves, to find that spot where the Heavenly Father resides in us, and let Him share the mystery with us. Oh the joy!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Christine Watkins has written a new book, “Of Men and Mary.” It is a wonderful book about the conversions of six different men, through Our Lady. Thank you, Christine for your tireless efforts to help us grow closer to Our Lady and Jesus!

A quote from one review of the book: OF MEN AND MARY recounts the riveting conversion stories of, among others, a convicted murderer and a man who was clinically dead. Three of the book’s six subjects became Catholic priests and one became a deacon.  At a time when men are feeling discouraged and disengaged from the Church and the priesthood is under attack, this book offers a much-needed dose of hope, courage and inspiration. Female readers will also want to hear her grace-filled message-and to share it with the men in their lives.

Here is a link to see more about the book and/or order one!

Mary TV: December 7, 2018 Reflection -“I wish that your hearts be similar to my heart..”

First Friday

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! When you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you and, above all, interceding for you with my Son…” (December 2, 2018)


Tomorrow is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception! One more day to prepare. I thought today we could let the prayer that Our Lady taught Jelena Vasilj speak to our hearts and help us to pray properly.

 
Jelena was very young when Our Lady taught her this prayer. And you can tell that Our Lady was speaking to a young person. The words are simple and straightforward and they can open us up to Our Lady in a truly childlike way.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Overflowing with goodness,
Show us your love for us.
May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary,
Descend upon all peoples.
We love you immensely.
Impress in our hearts a true love.
May our hearts yearn for you.
Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart,
Remember us when we sin.
You know that all mankind are sinners.
Through your most sacred and maternal heart,
Cure us from every spiritual illness.
Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart,
And that, thus, we may be converted
to the flame of your heart. Amen

Our Lady tells us:

“Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. I am with you and I love you all. I am your Mother and I wish that your hearts be similar to my heart. Little children, without prayer you cannot live and say that you are mine. Prayer is joy. Prayer is what the human heart desires. Therefore, get closer, little children, to my Immaculate Heart and you will discover God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (November 25, 1994)


May we all grow very close to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the heart of the Woman who is called the Immaculate Conception!! She is the Heart of our Church. Her Heart will keep our hearts burning with love for Jesus and protect us from all harm.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: December 6, 2018 Reflection – Heart of Mary, like unto the Heart of God!

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! When you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you and, above all, interceding for you with my Son…” (December 2, 2018)


Today we have a litany written by Blessed John Henry Newman! I think the way to pray this litany is not to rush, not to rattle off the words as if we are in a race. Instead, let’s take each title as an invitation to silent prayer, a moment to ponder what this title could mean. Our Lady, when she was greeted by the Angel Gabriel, took a moment to ponder, to let the words he spoke to her rumble around in her heart and head, until she had inspected them properly. Only then could she respond.

 
In the same we when we pray, especially prayers that are written for us, we need to take some time with the words we say, let them rumble around in our poor heads and hearts until we can make some sense out of them. Then we need to present them to God for light. What does this mean, and what do you make of it, Lord? Or in this case what do you think of it, Mother? Then wait for light. Each title carries a grace and a gift for us, because everything about Our Lady is a grace and gift for us!

So here is our prayer for today, as we approach the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception:

 
LITANY OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
The First of Three Litanies
(For private use only)

Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us.
God the Father of Heaven, have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God the Holy Ghost, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, One God, have mercy on us.

Heart of Mary, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, like unto the Heart of God, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, united to the Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, instrument of the Holy Ghost, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, sanctuary of the Divine Trinity, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, tabernacle of God Incarnate, pray for us., 
Heart of Mary, immaculate from thy creation, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, full of grace, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, blessed among all hearts, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, throne of glory, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, most humble, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, holocaust of Divine Love, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, fastened to the Cross with Jesus Crucified, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, comfort of the afflicted, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, refuge of sinners, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, hope of the agonizing, pray for us.
Heart of Mary, seat of mercy, pray for us.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Have mercy on us.

V. Immaculate Mary, meek and humble of heart,
R. Make our hearts like unto the Heart of Jesus.

Let Us Pray
O most merciful God, Who, for the salvation of sinners and the refuge of the miserable, was pleased that the Most Pure Heart of Mary should be most like in charity and pity to the Divine Heart of Thy Son, Jesus Christ, grant that we, who commemorate this sweet and loving Heart, by the merits and intercession of the same Blessed Virgin, may merit to be found like unto the Heart of
Jesus, through the same Christ Our Lord. R. Amen.

This litany was composed by John Henry (Cardinal) Newman shortly after he converted to Catholicism in 1845.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Teacher Claims Catholic School Fired Her For Being Pregnant While Unmarried

Ohio Senate Panel Holds Hearing on Bill to Ban Abortions After Unborn Baby’s Heartbeat Begins

From CMMB: “I carried her to the hospital, but it was too late.”

 

Susan’s father, Joseph, stands where his daughter is buried
“I carried my daughter on my bike as fast as I could, but it was too late. The hospital was too far and my daughter and her baby died before we got there.”
These are the words of Joseph, a father who lost his daughter and grandchild to complications from childbirth.
Like 90 percent of women in South Sudan, Susan was planning to deliver her second baby at home. She went into labor on Friday afternoon, with her aunt by her side. After more than two days in excruciating pain, she was struggling to breathe.

That was when Joseph picked up his daughter and got on his bike. It was a difficult journey and he had to stop often, as Susan was in and out of consciousness. Halfway there, she stopped breathing and her heart stopped. So too, did the heartbeat of her baby.

“Susan was a good mother. She left behind Amina, her three-year-old daughter. What will happen to Amina? What is life here without a mother?” – Joseph, Father of Susan
South Sudan, where Susan lived, has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. No woman should die giving life – they need your help.

Your gift of $100, $200, $500, or any amount, can save the lives of pregnant women and their babies by improving access to emergency transportation, skilled birth attendants, and critical medicines. All gifts made before December 31st will be matched and your impact will be doubled.
