This is a busy summer as we gear up for the largest 40 Days for Life campaign ever…..

…..in more than 400 cities!

In fact, we just returned from a jam-packed training of the heroes of 40 Days for Life: the local campaign leaders.

image

This year’s leader symposium featured training and speakers, including Bishop Thomas Olmsted of the Diocese of Phoenix; representatives from Alliance Defending Freedom, Live Action and Pro-Life Action Ministries; and former Planned Parenthood manager, Sue Thayer. Sue led a campaign outside her former workplace before it closed. Her message was powerful, to say the least.

The event started with a surprise as we shared a warm message to our leaders from President Donald Trump.

You can view President Trump’s message in the event program here.

Leading a 40 Days for Life campaign is hard.

We had leaders from Los Angeles to the Bronx to Latin America to Nigeria to Canada to Florida to Croatia. The one common theme was overcoming persecution and trusting God with all of these efforts. As our courageous local leaders get ready for this massive campaign, please find your location early and sign up to pray. You can also sign up to pray on the new and improved 40 Days for Life app.

Thank you to President Trump for his message and to all of the speakers who made this important training possible. We look forward to seeing God use our time together to save babies from abortion this September 26 through November 4.

For life,

Live Heaven here on earth…
July 31, 2018
St. Ignatius of Loyola

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! God called me to lead you to Him because He is your strength. That is why I am calling you to pray to Him and to trust in Him, because He is your refuge from every evil that lurks and carries souls far from the grace and joy to which you are all called. Little children, live Heaven here on earth so that it will be good for you; and may the commandments of God be a light on your way. I am with you and I love you all with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2018)

 
Our Lady in this message is giving us instruction in survival. She is showing us how to face these tumultuous days with strength. As our Church is being rocked with scandal at the highest levels, we all need a guiding light, a way to proceed. And she is giving us just that light.
 
“Dear children! God called me to lead you to Him because He is your strength.” The Father has sent Our Lady to lead us, to be our guiding light, the way to go to be with God. She has been providing that guidance for us for 37 years. She has led us to the Lord, so that we can receive His strength in these very difficult days.
 
“That is why I am calling you to pray to Him and to trust in Him, because He is your refuge from every evil that lurks and carries souls far from the grace and joy to which you are all called.” Our Lady has called us to be people of prayer, people who spend much time with Jesus in prayer. This prayer fills us with trust. We experience the interventions of the Lord in our everyday life, and our trust in Him grows.
 
The Surrender Prayer that Denis and I pray every day in the Daily Rosary is exactly this kind of trust. Putting everything in Jesus’ hands, and letting Him take over in our lives is really the way to becoming strong. We become strong because we are depending on the One who has all power and all authority. Jesus can carry us all, if we place ourselves in His hands. “O Jesus, I surrender myself to You. Take care of everything!” Here is a link to the novena prayers of surrender we pray: https://marytv.tv/novena-prayers/ 

Yes there is great evil in our day, trying to take us far away from God. But Our Lady is with us to lead us back to God. She is coming to teach us the way.

 
“Little children, live Heaven here on earth so that it will be good for you; and may the commandments of God be a light on your way.” Isn’t this an amazing word for us!! Live Heaven here on earth so it will be good for you… How do we live heaven on earth? I believe there is a clue in the “Our Father” that Jesus taught us. He said we should pray this way: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven…”
 
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. I believe this is the key to living Heaven on earth. We need to learn how to live God’s will on earth, as the souls live God’s will in Heaven! But how do the saints in Heaven live God’s will? This is a very good question. How do they live God’s will in Heaven? My stab at an answer is that they love God with their entire being, and that love teaches them everything they need to know about God’s will for them. It is the Love that guides them to do what God has planned for them. And so we need to grow in love for the Lord, so much in love, that we desire only to please Him. He will show us the way. And that way will always contain the commandments. God’s love is expressed in the commandments, and so the commandments will be our means to loving God always.

Well, finally Our Lady tells us: “I am with you and I love you all with my motherly love.” If we have any doubt about doing what she has asked us to do, we can set it aside, because she is with us now, in an extraordinary way. She will not leave our side. And with her help, we will live Heaven here on earth…

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world.”
Saint John Paul II

In Evangelium Vitae, St. Pope John Paul II identified a sinister paradox in contemporary culture. “Precisely in an age when the inviolable rights of the person are solemnly proclaimed and the value of life is publicly affirmed,” he lamented, “the very right to life is being denied or trampled upon, especially at the more significant moments of existence: the moment of birth and the moment of death.”
This “strange contradiction,” he warned, means that in practice a great deal of the lofty talk about human rights spoken in legislatures, courts and conference rooms around the world amounts to little more than a “futile exercise of rhetoric.” In this blistering passage, the pope singles out one instance of the hypocrisy of many ostensibly liberal modern democratic states…

The Papal Flag which flies outside St. James Church!!!!

St. Peter Chrysologus

Dear Family of Mary!

Every week Rosie Zubac gives Mary TV the news from Medjugorje! She captures the daily realities of Medjugorje and helps us all feel connected to Our Lady’s village. But this week, in her “Tea with Rosie” she shared about the coming of Archbishop Hoser to Medjugorje! It is such good news, so joyful and life-giving to hear him share about his mission. So I am quoting Rosie in this reflection. You can view the video of “Tea with Rosie” on our website in the archive window on the home page. https://marytv.tv/tea-with-rosie/
 
Thank you, Rosie, for keeping us informed and in touch with Medjugorje:
 
This is Rosie Zubac, speaking to you from Medjugorje!
 
On the 22nd of July, a new era was marked here in Medjugorje. The Holy See’s Visitor, Archbishop Hoser, began his mission here. At the beginning of this month, the Apostolic Nuncio, Monsignor Luigi Pezzuto, read the letter from the Pope in which he explained the appointment of Archbishop Hoser in Medjugorje and his mission.
 
There were many, many priests concelebrating the Evening Mass, and as well as Monsignor there was Bishop Guido Gallese, Bishop of Alessandria from Italy. It was a wonderful occasion where we actually received acknowledgement from the Vatican for this place of Medjugorje and all the pilgrims who come here. We are very happy that the Archbishop is resident here and is going to help with the running of the Parish of Medjugorje.

The 25th of July is the Feast Day of St. James. He is the Patron Saint of Medjugorje, the patron of pilgrims, and the statue that we have here depicts him as a pilgrim, with his walking staff and his small water vessel, and his seashell. Those are all signs of a pilgrim. This year the people of Medjugorje went on a procession to the garden with the ruins of the old church, where there is an outside altar. There was a procession with the statue of St. James, which was followed by local people in traditional dress, and many priests concelebrated the Mass.
 
At the end of this Mass, the Archbishop addressed the people of Medjugorje. He said, “We have a great responsibility towards the whole world, because truly Medjugorje has become a place of prayer and conversion for the whole world. Accordingly, the Holy Father is concerned and sends me here to help the Franciscan priests to organize and to acknowledge this place as a source of grace for the whole world.”
 
These were remarkably positive words from the Archbishop. And so we are all really happy about this appointment for the sake of the parish and for the devotion, Our Lady, Queen of Peace.  
 
On the 25th of every month, the visionary, Marija, from Medjugorje has a message for the world, and this month and every month, after we receive this message there is all night Adoration in the church of St. James. It is a way to meditate on the words of Our Lady and to adore her Son, Jesus. So if you come here, and maybe you have come from a country far away and you have jet lag, you can come here and spend that night in prayer.
 
So that’s about it for me this week, so God bless you and God willing I will see you next week!  Good bye!!


I don’t think we have yet completely understood what a big change has come to Medjugorje. Archbishop Hoser has brought the protection and pastoral care of Pope Francis to Medjugorje. Let’s pray for the Archbishop as he begins his mission in Medjugorje!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
