Part 2 of 3 of our "NUMBERS DON'T LIE" video series, called "NUMBER ONE KILLER". It exposes the epidemic of abortion in the black community. The Nat'l Black Prolife Coalition calls out black leaders who have betrayed their community by either their silence or complicity with the issue of abortion.

“Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave…”
Philippians 2: 5-6

Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola
Dear John,
St. Ignatius began as a military soldier. Wounded in battle, he examined his life. Led by the Spirit he then put all his energy in the service of God and the Church. Reflecting on his own experience, he wrote the Spiritual Exercises, arguably the most significant retreat manual in the Catholic Church. He founded the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) and sent missionaries such as St. Francis Xavier throughout the known world. Generosity and magnanimity in the service of God would be his hallmark, and one that every person should strive to practice.

Dear Lord,
Teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve.
To give and not to cost the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds;
to toil and not to seek for rest;
to labor and not ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I am doing your will.
Amen.
Prayer in harmony with the life, spirit and work of St. Ignatius Loyola
Rev. Peter Schineller, S.J., CMMB Board of Directors

[Excerpt]
As the Vatican continues its international Commission investigating the ongoing apparitions of Medjugorje, under the leadership of Cardinal Camillo Ruini and the CDF, the Holy See should not ignore an important, but little known, fact about these Marian apparitions. They were confirmed as being authentic by the main visionary of Fatima, Sister Lucia dos Santos, who not only confirmed but also reported experiencing apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje in the convent.

According to Sister Lucia’s own nephew, Father Salinho — a Salesian priest who lives in Portugal — Sister Lucia continued receiving visions of the Virgin Mary long after 1917, and some of these apparitions of the Virgin spoke to Sister Lucia of the Madonna’s continued work in Medjugorje. This report of Father Salinho’s was documented by the French author Sister Emmanuel Maillard in her book Medjugorje, Triumph of the Heart! (Queenship, 2004), a revised edition of Sister Emmanuel’s earlier popular work, Medjugorje: the 90s. Pope John Paul II met with Sister Emmanuel, was given a copy of her earlier book, and therefore this knowledge – between Fatima’s main visionary and the apparitions in Medjugorje – may not have been foreign to the Vatican.

Quote:
Father Pietro Bernardi, O.F.M. Cap, postulator
It is almost impossible to say how much Father Leopold loved the Madonna. The tone of his voice when he spoke of her, the light in his eyes when he looked at a picture of her, cannot be put into words at all. You would have to have seen him in order to comprehend something of the ardent love for Mary in the heart of this Capuchin.
 
Meditation:

Ferdinand Holboc
During his assignment at the friary in Thiene, near Vicenza, in the years 1906 to 1909, Father Leopold often helped the lay brothers humbly with the household chores, washed the dishes, cleaned the cells, and set the table. Since his soul was turned constantly toward God, he wanted them to pray during their work, especially the Litany of Loreto. At the invocation "Cause of our joy"

, he interrupted his work, lifted his eyes to heaven, and remained for a while in this attitude, as though enraptured. Once a confrere asked him, "Father Leopold, why do you interrupt your work at this invocation of the Litany of Loreto and raise your eyes to heaven?" At that he exclaimed, "O Madonna, the Madonna, the cause of our joy!" Then he remained looking up to heaven for a long time,

  

his face beaming.

Resolution:
What did St. Leopold have to be joyful about? He was only four feet six inches tall. His dream of 

 

missionary work was 

 

never fulfilled. Instead he spent hours every day in the Confessional. In fact, at his canonization John Paul referred to Saint Leopold as "the Confessor." How many crosses did he bear in hearing so many confessions?

 

I will imitate St. Leopold who during his work paused at the invocation Cause of our Joy and looked up to heaven. I will ask him to explain this mystery to me and teach me to find my joy in Our Lady.

 
Marian Vow:

Ferdinand Holboc
Mary stood by him at all times, consoled him during the terrible spiritual trials, restored peace to his tortured soul, strengthened him in his physical sufferings, and helped him to give fresh courage to the sinners and unfortunates who came to him and to lead them back to the right path.
Ferdinand Holbock, New Saints and Blesseds of the Catholic Church Vol I,(Ignatius Press),

I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
 
Thanks be to God for graces received.

From Pat Davis:

When you carry a Rosary, Satan has a headache.

When you use it, he collapses.

When he sees you praying it, he faints.

Let us pray the rosary every time, so that he’ll keep fainting.


Did you also know that when you are about to forward this message, Satan will try to discourage you?

Forward it anyway and help hasten the triumph of Mother Mary!

Send this to your prayerful friends and see how the Holy Spirit works! 

There is a great deal to gain and absolutely nothing to lose! 

****************************

Hi Everyone,

Imagine what might happen if every Catholic in the world would pray a Rosary on the same day! We have an example in October of 1573, when Europe was saved from the invasion of the mighty Turkish fleet, by the praying of the Rosary by all Christians! 

So, on July 30 2011, let us all pray a Rosary for peace in the world and the return of moral values into our communities. If possible, please pray your Rosary between Noon and 3:00 pm.

Also, please forward this message to every Catholic on your address list, and ask them to pass it along to every Catholic on their lists. Let’s unite in praying one of the most powerful prayers in existence, for these intentions, on one of the holiest days in our Church year.

God bless us all!
