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


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.

Pope Paul VI
Apostolic Exhortation of His Holiness Paul VI, Signum Magnum, on the veneration and imitation of Mary, Mother of the Church, model of all virtues (Excerpts)

and give your loved ones the opportunity to discover a new aspect of the mystery of the Mother of God each day.


 

Medjugorje Is Not Prohibited By
 The Church

 

Medjugorje, June 29, 2015

 

Dear brothers and sisters, peace!

 

As you can guess, we are receiving a lot of questions about the position of the Church regarding the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.

 

Once more, we are facing a modern disease – to read, comment and become passionate about media statements when its first goal is not always to convey the truth. Many in the media are pushing their own position with a great deal of noise. Of course one may express a personal opinion on the subject, and slip in snippets of the truth. But whoever wishes to be informed about the truth of an important  matter can do it in a way that is secure and that heals the confusion, disorder, doubt, bitterness, rebellion, or even triumphant satisfaction which does not necessarily come from the Holy Spirit.

 

The way to do this is easy: just go to the source of the information! And the only source of information from the Holy See is the spokesman appointed for this purpose: Father Lombardi. Whoever is looking for a recent statement from him regarding the position of the Holy See on Medjugorje will not find one! Whoever is searching the Vatican website on the subject will find nothing, not a thing.

 

What does this mean? The media virus has struck once again, sowing turmoil in many hearts with all its contradictions. The truth is that neither the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (the CDF), nor the Pope have issued an official statement about Medjugorje. They have not even held a meeting to address the subject together. In addition, no meeting has been scheduled during the summer. It is also very likely that the theme of the family – the great theme of the year – will take precedence over the Medjugorje issue.  So, let’s be patient!

 

All those who have experienced many graces in Medjugorje and who have wholeheartedly followed the school of the Queen of Peace should be reassured, because today we can state the following:
– Medjugorje is not forbidden by the Church.
– The Pope has not yet taken a stand on Medjugorje.
– Everyone can travel there in private pilgrimage without disobeying the Church.
– The messages are not prohibited, everyone can disseminate them and especially live them.

 

– The visionaries have not been declared to be false.

 

The Holy Father carries a great responsibility, because the final word will depend on him. We know that Cardinal Müller, prefect of the CDF, has sometimes expressed negative statements regarding Medjugorje. That is why, in this time of grace and struggle, we need to pray a lot to the Holy Spirit for the Holy Father, and also fast for him. May the will of God be fulfilled!

 

Whatever position Rome will express through official channels, we will obey it. Obedience will be the best sign that we are walking with the Queen of Peace, with the Church and not without the Church. Mary is relying on us to help her fully realize her plans. Because, let us not forget: “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

From 2327 abortions a year in 1980 to 295 today

 

The following comes from a June 24 story on LifeNews.com.

Teen abortions in Minnesota have declined dramatically since the state enacted a law requiring parental notification before minors undergo abortions. Tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding Minnesota’s parental notification requirement.

The law (MN Statute 144.343), strongly supported by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL), was passed by the Legislature with large bipartisan majorities in 1981. It requires that both parents be notified at least 48 hours before an abortion is performed on a minor girl….

Minnesota’s law was in place until 1986, when it was enjoined by a federal district court. The U.S. Supreme Court eventually ruled on June 25, 1990, in the case of Hodgson v. Minnesota, upholding both the two-parent and 48-hour requirements. The law went back into effect that year.

The annual number of minor abortions in Minnesota peaked at 2,327 in 1980, the year before the parental notification law first went into effect. Teen abortions then began to steadily decline…. In 2013 (the latest year for which data is available), minor abortions fell to 295, the lowest number on record….

The First Martyrs of the Holy Roman Church

 

Dear Family of Mary!

 

June 25, 2015

“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.”

 

We are beloved children. Our Father in heaven has given Our Lady the grace to love us and to call us to conversion. This may sound obvious. But I do not think it is obvious. All love comes from God. All true love is from God. Our Lady recognizes this. She understands that she can love us because God loves us and gives her the strength to love us as well. What would we do without Our Lady’s love?

 

And then there is the grace she has been given to call us to conversion. This is a big grace. God has decided that we are open enough to hear Our Lady’s call to conversion, and so He has sent her to call us, to speak to us about conversion. We are so blessed. I am sure that my life would be very different if God had not allowed Our Lady to come and call me to conversion. I might never have changed my life, if I hadn’t heard this call from Mary. On my first trip to Medjugorje, Our Lady spoke to me, loud and clear, about something in my life that needed to be changed. I needed to hear this call, and change. But I didn’t know I needed it. It was God who knew I needed it. And so He gave Our Lady the information and the grace to speak to me about it, in Medjugorje, in a dramatic way. It was so necessary and needed! I thank the Father for giving Mary the grace to call me to conversion in 1987.

 

And so, today, it is the same. Our Lady has come to call us to conversion. She has been given information by the Father about our need to convert. And she has been given the grace to come to us to tell us about it. We must not overlook this grace. It is vital for our salvation. Our Lady is calling to each of us, in some area of our life, to convert. There is something that needs to change. She knows what it is. And she has the grace to tell us about it. Are we listening??

 

In the Fruit of Medjugorje episodes, week after week, pilgrims share about their conversions. They share how Our Lady in Medjugorje came to them, loved them, and showed them what they needed to change in order to turn to God, and put Him in the first place. It is amazing how different each story is, but how much conversion is at the center of each story. Conversion is given to us because it is the one thing we need to be saved. We need to turn to God, recognize Him as our God, and give ourselves to Him. We need to let go of all that hinders us from full surrender to the Lord. And that is what Our Lady helps us to do. What a grace she has been given, to show us how to convert!!!

 

It seems to me that in our world today there are millions of souls that still need to convert. God loves them all. Maybe we would be some help to Him, if we asked Him to give Our Lady the grace to call them all to conversion, just as she has called us! Maybe that is a good way to pray in these days. We could pray that God would open up His great Heart and give Our Lady all the grace she needs to call all the lost souls on earth to conversion. This would be tremendous. This would be huge!

 

Well, at the least, we need to answer her call to each of us, and convert again today. We need to put God at the center of our lives, and she will show us the way. She has been sent to call us. This should bring us great joy!

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
