Be born into a new life of the love of God! (c)Mary TV/Anthony Zubac
February 28, 2019 Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to a new life. It is not important how old you are, open your heart to Jesus who will transform you in this time of grace and, like nature, you will be born into a new life in God’s love, and you will open your heart to Heaven and the things of Heaven. I am still with you, because God permitted me out of love for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (February 25, 2019)
Our Lady wants us to be “born into a new life in God’s love…” She wants us to be new! St. Faustina was led by the Spirit during a retreat to seek just such a new life. Here are her words: Third day. In the meditation on death, I prepared myself as if for real death. I examined my conscience and searched all my affairs at the approach of death and, thanks be to grace, my affairs were directed toward that ultimate goal. This filled my heart with great gratitude to God, and I resolved to serve my God even more faithfully in the future. One thing alone is necessary: to put my old self to death and to begin a new life. In the morning, I prepared to receive Holy Communion as if it were to be the last in my life, and after Holy Communion I brought before my imagination my actual death, and I said the prayers for the dying and then the De Profundis for my own soul. My body was lowered into the grave, and I said to my soul, “See what has become of your body, a heap of dirt teeming with vermin – that is your inheritance.” (1343 Diary) O merciful God, who still allow me to live, give me strength that I may live a new life, the life of the spirit, over which death has no dominion. And with that, my heart was renewed, and I began a new life while still here on earth, a life of love of God. Nevertheless, I do not forget that I am weakness itself, though I do not doubt even for a moment that I will obtain the help of Your grace, O God. (1344 Diary)
I am coming out of this retreat thoroughly transformed by God’s love. My soul is beginning a new life, earnestly and courageously; although outwardly my life will not change, and no one will notice it, nevertheless, pure love is [now] the guide of my life and, externally, it is mercy which is its fruit. I feel that I have been totally imbued with God and, with this God, I am going back to my everyday life, so drab, tiresome and wearying, trusting that he whom I feel in my heart will change this drabness into my personal sanctity. (1363 Diary) St. Faustina was led to prayerfully imagine her own death, even to imagine her body being buried. As she walked through her own death in her imagination, St. Faustina felt a great move of the Holy Spirit, seemingly resurrecting her to a new life. She saw her life in a new way after her meditation on death. She saw everything differently. Now God was everything for her. He was all she could think about, all she could desire, the only object of her love. St. Faustina was made new! Our Lady wants us to have just such a new life. We need to recognize that our lives are finite on this earth and therefore desire the things of heaven! If we invite Jesus into our hearts He will show us the way. Come Lord Jesus! Come into my heart. I long for you to dwell with me, there where I am only me, small and so much in need of You. Transform me from within. Work out all the old wounds and sorrows. Heal them with Your radiant love. Give me eyes only for your face. Give me ears only for Your voice. Then I shall be at peace. My hope will become secure in reality. I will desire only You and Your heaven. Come Lord Jesus and stay in my heart. Never leave me. I want to live a new life with You. Amen In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2019 PS.

72-year-old Mulewa with her 5-year-old granddaughter Mwikali.
It was past midnight when Mulewa was woken up. Her daughter, Ngiria, was in labor and desperately needed her.

The labor lasted hours. Ngiria lost a lot of blood and was in and out of consciousness. With tears in her eyes, Mulewa recalls what happened next:

“I remember holding my newborn grandson in my arms. He wasn’t breathing. He had no heartbeat. And then I looked at Ngiria, my daughter. I could see she was slipping away. But no matter what I tried, I couldn’t stop the bleeding. And then, just like that, she was gone.”

What should have been a time of joy and celebration quickly turned into deep sorrow. Not only did Mulewa lose her daughter and grandson, but six children had lost their mother and a husband, his wife.

Mwende (12), Muli (10), Ndungee (7), and Mulewa (13) no longer have a mother.
“We needed a hospital. We needed a doctor. If there was a hospital, if my wife had a doctor’s care, maybe she would be alive today and my children would have their mother.” – Negi, father in Kenya
Ngiria and her baby boy should be alive. Their deaths – like that of so many women and babies in impoverished countries – were preventable. If only they lived closer to the hospital, if only they had a doctor’s skilled care, if only…

Your gift can help save precious lives, like Ngiria and her baby boy, by ensuring pregnant women have access to prenatal care, emergency transportation, a health facility with trained medical professionals, and critical medicines, so they can deliver their babies safely. Your help can bring the light of hope.

DONATE NOW
With gratitude,


President and CEO
CMMB/Healthier Lives WorldwidePS: The distance to the nearest health facility can mean the difference between life and death for pregnant women and their unborn babies. Your gift can help ensure access to emergency transportation and critical care that saves lives.

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to a new life. It is not important how old you are, open your heart to Jesus who will transform you in this time of grace and, like nature, you will be born into a new life in God’s love, and you will open your heart to Heaven and the things of Heaven. I am still with you, because God permitted me out of love for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (February 25, 2019)


Our Lady is calling us to become new creations in Christ. She doesn’t want us to waste any more time riding the fence. We need to become new persons, completely new! And the newness has everything to do with becoming holy! Jesus and Mary invite us to reject sin, reject our self-centered attitudes, reject our luke warmness and turn towards Jesus so that we can be made new, holy, clean, loving, kind, humble, sincere, truthful, patient, generous and giving, joyful, hopeful, faith filled, laughing people!

St. Paul said it this way:

 
2Cor 5:17-22:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 
 

The Father allowed Jesus to take on our sins so that we could be freed of them and become good and holy, righteous like He is. This gift of being made new is a miracle beyond compare. How does anyone repent, turn from evil, choose the good without help? It just doesn’t happen. But Jesus became our help. Jesus paved the way for our regeneration in love. So now we can indeed enter into a new life. We can live the life of God.

I think this message is a perfect preparation for Lent. What better Lenten practice could we choose than to become new!! We want to be new! It is a dream to be made new! But Jesus died for just that reason, that we could be made new. Unheard of!! Miraculous! Fantastic!

Mother, you call us to a new life and so we ask you to help us. Help us to open our hearts to Jesus this Lent, with a trust and love that will allow Him to come into our hearts and change them. We want to allow Jesus to give us new hearts, hearts of love, hearts filled with heaven and the things of heaven, hearts like your Immaculate Heart! May it be so, dearest Mother, may it be so!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Today we share with you, as a Life Issues Forum Special Edition, a timely commentary from Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of Kansas City, Kansas, and Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities.

The Pro-Life Secretariat
A Concern for Catholics in Public Life
Recent efforts to perpetuate and expand abortion in state laws have illuminated the deplorable actions of some Catholic public officials and advocates. Their efforts to support and even celebrate such legislation will result in killing many more unborn children, as well as the spiritual and emotional wounding of their mothers and fathers. Advocating for intrinsically evil acts, like abortion, is a serious immoral act – one that involves grave matter, the prerequisite for the commission of a mortal sin. While we can object to the actions of these public officials, we are not able to judge their souls. At the same time, we know there will be a Judgment Day.
Conscious and unrepentant mortal sin endangers our eternal souls and places ourselves on a path to Hell. To receive our Eucharistic Lord, while in a state of mortal sin, only further jeopardizes the eternal fate of our souls. Sincere repentance, a conversion of heart, and a genuine effort to make amends for the harm caused by our sin, are essential to be able to receive God’s mercy.
In my own role as a bishop, I have a serious responsibility to make certain that those entrusted to my pastoral care are aware of the moral gravity and spiritual consequences of their actions. I also have a serious obligation to protect other members of my flock from being misled by a seeming tolerance of the scandalous behavior of some Catholics in public life. It is critically important that I attempt to enter into dialogue with such Catholic leaders. If even after an extended dialogue a Catholic in public life persists in scandalous actions, I have found it necessary to request that they not present themselves to receive Holy Communion, for their own spiritual welfare and for the protection of many others from moral confusion.
I invite all Catholics to pray for spiritual healing for all those involved in or advocating for legalized abortion. When we truly repent, God is always eager to lavish us with His mercy.
