Dear Family of Mary!
 
August 25, 2016
“Dear children! Today I desire to share Heavenly joy with you. You, little children, open the door of your heart so that hope, peace and love, which only God gives, may grow in your heart. Little children, you are too bound to the earth and earthly things, that is why, Satan is rolling you like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. Therefore, may the chain of your life be prayer with the heart and Adoration of my Son Jesus. Give over your future to Him so that, in Him, you may be joy and an example with your lives to others. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
Our Lady tells us that we are “too bound to the earth and earthly things.” Satan is rolling us like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. She recommends that we pray with the heart and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. She wants us to give over our future to Him.
 
I want to suggest that she has given us another tool to use in grounding ourselves in Jesus, and letting go of the world. That tool is fasting. Every Wednesday and Friday she asks us to fast on bread and water. Today is Wednesday! If we don’t want to get rolled over like the waves of the sea, we might try to fast as she asks.
 
Here is a prayer that Fr. Slavko wrote for the beginning of a fast day. It might help us as we begin our fast!
 
O Lord God, You are the Creator of the entire world and my Creator! Today I thank You for having so wonderfully arranged the world. Thank You for the fruitfulness that you have bestowed on mother earth for it to bear such a vast variety of fruit. Thank You for the food prepared from the fruits of the earth. Father, I rejoice with Your creatures; I rejoice today with all the fruit and I give You thanks. O Lord, thank You for our need for the daily bread and for the need of daily drink.
 
Father, thank You for having created my organism to be able to use the fruit of the earth so as to grow and to serve You. Thank you, Father, for all those who, by their labor provide new possibilities for life on earth. Thank you for all those who have much and give to others. Thank You for all those who hunger for the Heavenly Bread as they eat the bread of this earth. Father, I also thank You for all those who have nothing to eat today because I am convinced You will send them help through the goodness of others.
 
Father, today I resolve to fast. In doing so, I do not despise your creatures. I do not renounce them; I only want to rediscover their worth. I have decided to fast because Your prophets fasted, because Your Son Jesus Christ fasted and because His Apostles and Disciples fasted. I especially decide to fast because Your servant and our Mother, Mary, also fasted. She calls me to fast: “Dear children! Today I call on you to begin fasting with the heart!” (10/20/1984)
 
Father, I present this day of fasting to You. Through fasting, I want to listen to Your Word and to live it more fully. During this day, I want to learn to be turned more toward You, despite everything that surrounds me. With this fast, which I take freely upon myself, I pray to You for all those who are hungry and who, because of their hunger, have become aggressive. I offer this fast to You for peace in the world….
 
Mary, You were free in Your heart and bound to nothing except the Father’s Will. Obtain for me the grace of a joyful fast today, in which my heart will be able to sing a song of thanksgiving with You. Obtain for me the grace that my decision to fast may be firm and lasting. I offer the difficulties and the hunger I am going to feel today for all people. Mary, Pray for me. Let every evil and temptation of Satan be kept away from me today through Your intercession and through the power of Your protection. Mary, teach me to fast and to pray so that day by day, I may become more and more like You and Your son, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Amen. (Fr. Slavko Barbaric. “Fast with the Heart”. Par 12.1)
 
May we grow less bound to the earth and more bound to heaven on this day!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Don’t forget www.livethefast.org – It is a fantastic support for fasting and prayer!
 


 
PPS. We are approaching the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I feel that Mother’s intercession will be very powerful for us on her canonization day. Let’s prepare our hearts for that day by asking for her intercession and thanking her for her great fidelity to God’s plan for her life. She is a true hero for us all!
 
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love to all. Obtain from the Heart of Jesus (here make your request). Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Cause of Our Joy, pray for me.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, pray for me.

Dear Family of Mary!
 
“Dear Children! Again today in a special way I want to invite you to live my messages. Dear children, do not just speak about my messages but live my messages. Be my living sign, a sign of my presence here and irradiate others with your presence here. Pray dear children through this time more. Pray together with me for my intentions. Follow me, dear children, live my messages. Fear not, I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son. Thank you, dear children, also today, for having responded to my call.”  
August 26, 2016, to Ivan on Mt. Podbrdo

Ivan Dragicevic met with his prayer group last Friday evening around the statue on Apparition Hill. Our Lady appeared to him and gave this message. There were many people gathered together to greet Our Lady. How wonderful it is to be present when she comes!!
 
Our Lady speaks to us very clearly. She wants us to live her messages. She doesn’t mind if we talk about them, but the real focus for her is on living her messages. She is very much like Jesus, who cautioned his followers to live what He taught them:
 
“Why do you call me `Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep, and laid the foundation upon rock; and when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house, and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But he who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation; against which the stream broke, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:46-49)
 
Though Our Lady’s words are not on a par with the Word of God, she has come to us as a messenger from Heaven. And she is our Heavenly Mother. Jesus gave her to us from the Cross. So her messages are important. I believe they are a great help for us in living Jesus’ Words. Prayer, fasting, Scripture, Eucharist and Confession…these are basic ways to learn from and follow Jesus.
 
We want to build our house on rock, on the Rock who is Christ. We want to live in such a way that we will be signs of Our Lady, who has come to bring us to her Son. We want to shine out with the peace and joy we have received from Our Lady in Medjugorje, so that others will turn to her presence and receive the graces of this time.
 
“Follow me, dear children, live my messages. Fear not, I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son.” This very familiar call from Our Lady is filled with comfort and hope. “Follow me” – it is a joy for children to follow their Mother. “Live my messages” – Our Lady’s messages make our lives happy, productive and healthy. “I am with you.” – This is the greatest gift of Medjugorje, the knowledge and experience of Our Lady’s presence with us!! “[I] intercede for all of you before my Son.” – we have a sure hope that Our Lady’s prayers for us will be heard. Such a firm foundation to our hope in the future!
 
Thank you, dearest Mother, for being with us, praying for us, leading us, and teaching us along our way to eternal life. We love you!!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Another courageous article from Shanghai online news portal Sixth Tone describes the continued desperation of re-married women in Guangdong.

Another courageous article from Shanghai online news portal Sixth Tone describes the continued desperation of re-married women in Guangdong.

Because it was too late in the pregnancy to abort via medication or suction, Anxiang (not her real name) had to abort via induction. On August 1, she had an injection to terminate her daughter. Two days later, she was induced and went through labor in order to deliver the still-born child. The next day she sent a heartbreaking message to the WeChat group of remarried couples in Guangdong. “I saw my daughter. She didn’t move. She was dead.”

Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, stated, “Our hearts go out to Anxiang and her husband. Although Anxiang was not physically dragged out of her home for an abortion, this abortion was nevertheless coerced. You can force someone through physical coercion or financial coercion. Any abortion against the will of the mother is forced. Read 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!

Priest Praying at a Planned Parenthood Clinic Calls for Prayerful Protest

Msgr. Charles Pope

Msgr. Charles Pope Prayerfully Protesting Outside a Planned Parenthood Clinic

Msgr. Charles Pope: I am prayerfully protesting the imminent opening of a Planned Parenthood mega Center not far from my parish in Washington DC. Please join me in prayer that this terrible facility will never in fact open; pray also that many thousands of children will be saved. Please Lord, not here, not anywhere! Last year Planned Parenthood reports having killed 327,653 children through abortion nationwide. It calls this slaughter “abortion services.”

Only 5 days left until Blessed Mother Teresa becomes St. Teresa of Calcutta!  Did you check out our St. Teresa Canonization Evangelization Package?
