Jumbotron to Expose Late-Term
Abortion/Infanticide in East Coast Tour

Columbus, OH – April 30, 2019 – With the repeated votes of Senate Democrats (including 6 presidential candidates) refusing to protect born children from murder, the nation has regularly been confronted by the overt barbarism of abortion advocates. The debate is no longer about a woman’s right to choose but rather the right of a woman to have a dead baby as a result even if the baby has been born.

This is now a debate over infanticide.

We have no choice! We must act swiftly and aggressively to end this. Thousands of babies’ lives hang in the balance! We cannot simply watch in horror as new, draconian abortion laws take hold! This will not stand! We are assembling the team to go on the road with our highly effective JUMBOTRON!

JumboTron Tour of Late-Term/Infanticide States:

Where: New York, Vermont, Virginia, other states TBA.
When: June 2-8, 2019

If we had the resources, we would rent and deploy Jumbotrons to every state and every city in America. We would particularly target all the states where these hideous new laws are hitting the books. We would expose the truth of abortion to every voter in every state across America.

But we don’t.
However, the one thing we do have, perhaps the most important, we have teams of young people anxious to take our message to the streets!

If we can raise just $12,500 over the next few weeks, we can dispatch another Created Equal Jumbotron team to new target locations in late-term/infanticide states across America.

Can I count on you for your support? You can give online HERE or send your check to: Created Equal, PO Box 360502, Columbus, OH 43236. Your gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

That truth is brutal; it is indisputable, and it is profound. In the years I have been fighting these battles, I have learned the most effective, anti-abortion message of all is showing a pro-choice audience an actual abortion being performed on the Jumbotron screen. We hold nothing back; it is the harsh, gruesome reality of blood-soaked truth.

Thank you for the support you have provided us in the past. God Bless You for everything you do that can end this carnage and save the babies!

Standing for the defenseless,

Mark Harrington, President, Created Equal

Standing for Jesus and Mary and Light!!

April 30, 2019

Dear Family of Mary!

The graces of Divine Mercy Sunday continue to burn in our hearts these days!! We have been given new life in the Mercy of God!  Here again is the April 25, 2019 message from Our Lady, Queen of Peace:

   

“Dear children! This is a time of grace, a time of mercy for each of you. Little children, do not permit that the wind of hatred and peacelessness rule in you and around you. You, little children, are called to be love and prayer. The devil wants peacelessness and disorder, but you, little children, be the joy of the risen Jesus who died and resurrected for each of you. He conquered death to give you life, eternal life. Therefore, little children, witness and be proud that you have resurrected in Him. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


Our Lady calls us to recognize our time of mercy. We need to bask in the Mercy of God! Jesus, through St. Faustina and St. John Paul II, has poured out His mercy upon us in abundance. But there is a reason that His Mercy is flooding the earth. The enemy has been spewing out his venom on humanity for centuries. And in these latter days, it would seem he has prevailed in many hearts and societies. Our Lady says as much:

“Little children, do not permit that the wind of hatred and peacelessness rule in you and around you.”


That wind is almost a hurricane now. We can see that blood lust is growing in many hearts. But Our Lady wants us to instead stand up for peace and mercy with great strength.

“You, little children, are called to be love and prayer.”


We do not have to cooperate with the darkness. Our Lady is with us to help us stand tall, like beacons in the dark. We are called to be carriers of mercy.

“The devil wants peacelessness and disorder, but you, little children, be the joy of the risen Jesus who died and resurrected for each of you. He conquered death to give you life, eternal life. Therefore, little children, witness and be proud that you have resurrected in Him.”


We need to stand tall, be proud that we have been given the blessing of Jesus’ Resurrection in our lives. We have come back from the death of sin, and we are embracing the light! We can offer another way to those who have only known the darkness. We can be beacons of light and hope for them.

Together we can have the courage to stand, to stand for Love, for Forgiveness, for Purity, for Truth, for Hope, for Joy, for Faith, for God, our Creator! We can be proud that we have been saved and are now Children of God. And we have the very best of Mothers!! With Our Lady we can stand!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

We have just lived through the holiest part of our Church Year!! The Paschal Mystery!! And we have so much to ponder. Thanks be to God!!

I want to share with you a beautiful homily that was give on April 27, 2019 at English Mass in Medjugorje. It is by Fr. John Egan! Father really describes well what it is like to be on pilgrimage in Medjugorje. I agree entirely! He captures the experience very accurately and humorously! But this is how Our Lady takes care of us in Medjugorje. Enjoy!!

Fr. John Egan, Saturday, April 27, 2019

I was just thinking there, coming to Medjugorje only last Monday…I felt I was like a broken-down bike. You know when after maybe a year of being on the bike, and it has maybe been in the shed over the winter, and it is all rusty and maybe the chain is a bit broken and the air has gone out of the tires, maybe the handle bars have gone loose, and the brakes are worn out, it’s just worn out really, and not fit for much!! And I think that was my experience coming to Medjugorje. I knew I was very run down! And worn out!

And I knew deep down that I needed to come here. I needed someone who could do a work in me. Someone who would be qualified to fix the parts, tighten up the wires, tighten the handle bar, put new pads on the breaks, maybe fix the chain, maybe get a new chain all together, and put some clean oil on it, and there I am, ready to go again.

And I believe this very much so is our Medjugorje experience. The world is difficult, it’s full of hills and valleys and we meet the odd stone in the road, and we get damaged. We feel the effects of it. We are hurt. We may have even fallen off our bikes, and we are bruised and battered. I am thinking of the referendum in Ireland, that we all even from here, suffered from all of that.

It is so important that we come here to the Blessed Mother, who really in truth knows everything about us. I was just thinking, our other priest, Fr. Jim, spoke about how Our Lady and Jesus knew each other so well that even at the moment when they met on the road to Calvary, the encounter of their eyes as Jesus carried His Cross, in that moment of suffering there was a complete unity between them, because Mary completely understood her Son. She was immaculate, she could see.

That is why at the Wedding at Cana, she knew what was needed. She is always aware of our need. That is why she could say, “They have no wine.” I believe that when we come here, Our Lady knows what is lacking in our lives. And she obediently turns always to her Son and says, “Fr. John, he has no wine. You need to do your miracle in him in these days.” And that has exactly been my experience as I have immersed myself as best I can in the program of what Medjugorje is.

I had an image which I shared last year, and it came to me very strongly again last night. You see, I had no homily and I was running out of time. We climbed the Hill yesterday, so my brain was not working. Literally! And all I wanted was Hawaiian Pizza. And I went to sleep, and I said, “Lord you will just have to work it out.” So, at 4 o’clock in the morning I woke up. And I was just thinking of a washing machine. And it came to me that it is like the “Medjugorje washing machine.”

When you come here you just open the door and you are just tossed in (to the washing machine). And you are filthy dirty. You have all the mess and the smells and everything inside you, and there is a real work to be done. But it’s not so much that I will do the work, it is rather that I am surrendering myself to a process. It’s the washing machine. And it has all its cycles and different steps. I was thinking of Fr. Leon who says, “At 10 o’clock we will have English Mass, at 11 o’clock I will bless all the medals and holy water. Then I will give a talk. Then the Rosary begins at 5 o’clock with confessions – the priests – available…and at 6 o’clock Holy Mass, 7 o’clock – adoration. There are cycles. Then tomorrow we get up and climb the hills, we pray our Rosaries. There are so many stages of the program. And we have no control over it. It’s like suddenly the motor in the machine starts to turn, and it spins faster and faster, and the next thing all the water comes in!! It is quite overwhelming isn’t it!

Even the first few days here can be disorienting. We don’t know what’s going on, especially the first time. Because we are struggling. We can’t understand all of this. And we find that maybe we get in touch with the dirty part of us. The unclean parts of us in which we may struggle and have avoided to face. But we can’t avoid it here. It just shows itself.

And I think the water in the washing machine is like the grace of Medjugorje. It’s the cleansing grace. But the real cleaning is that little detergent that you throw in with the mess. It’s the detergent isn’t it, that little ball of stuff. And I think that the discovery of the dirtiness in us is that encounter with Christ. He is the cleaner, He is the cleaner/ healer/ washer/ purifier. He does it all. And He does it really in a kind of a Sacramental form. Through the Eucharist primarily, as we open the Scriptures, as we break the bread. Unknown to ourselves there is a cleansing, healing, delivering, freeing work that is happening unconsciously, as we open up slowly ourselves to the cleansing process.

Its hard work isn’t it!! It just goes on day after day, and it’s hard to keep up with it all. Now and again the cycle stops. Between the cyclles the motor has to stop and cool down a bit, and so the engine slows, and you get a breather. There is your Adoration moment, where you just sit back from everything, from the mountains and praying, and you just reflect, you just contemplate the process. I think that is where the real work of healing happens, where you encounter that love, and you are relaxed. And you just rest in the presence of God. It is the most wonderful place to be. For me it has always been after the evening Mass, during the healing prayers and the final Rosary. But then all of a sudden, the next cycle comes, and it speeds up again and off you go again. And you can’t but go with it, so you are climbing the hills and off you go!!

No it is not easy, but I can firmly say, my friends, that after these seven days, eventually after the big final spin, the drum slows down, and the door opens and you kind of just flop out! And you are kind of physically wrecked, going “What happened there???” And yet you are so white, you are so clean, you are so fresh, with a fragrance of beauty and purity and freedom and joy that you know had nothing really to do with you but was something given to you. And that is the gift that the Lord wants for each one of us.

You know I have spent the week with many, many families. We have come together. And there are so many kids everywhere! And I see that freedom in the way they play and their spontaneity and their creativity and their love and their openness to everything in playfulness. And I really believe that is what God is trying to turn me in to. So, I can have that freedom and playfulness. I probably can’t play soccer with them, but I can just be myself. Be the beautiful thing that God wants me to be, and Our Lady only desires for me. It is called holiness. That is what it is all about. It is our mission. We are that mission. Let it be so in these days. Amen

Our Lady once said to us:
 

March 18, 2004  “Dear children! Also today, watching you with a heart full of love, I desire to tell you that what you persistently seek, what you long for, my little children, is before you. It is sufficient that, in a cleaned heart, you place my Son in the first place, and then you will be able to see. Listen to me and permit me to lead you to this in a motherly way.”


Thank you, Fr. Egan for sharing from your heart about what it is like to be in Our Lady’s hands for a week!! I encourage any of you who have not traveled to Medjugorje yet, please try to come. You will not regret it and you will be changed forever!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

April 28, 2019
Second Sunday of Easter
Feast of Divine Mercy

Dear Family of Mary!

First I want to let you know that Mary TV will be streaming Holy Mass in honor of Divine Mercy, directly from the Chapel of Divine Mercy in Surmanci, Medjugorje!!  Here are the details:


Holy Mass for the Feast of Divine Mercy
Divine Mercy Chapel
Surmanci
Medjugrje
3:00 pm Medjugorje time
LIVE!!! on Mary TV
www.marytv.tv


We have arrived at the wonderful Feast of Divine Mercy! Let’s gather up all the sinners in the whole world and immerse them in the fathomless mercy of God. This is the feast for all of us!

Our Lady calls to us:

May 25, 2008 “Dear children! In this time of grace, when God has permitted me to be with you, little children, I call you anew to conversion. Work on the salvation of the world in a special way while I am with you. God is merciful and gives special graces, therefore, seek them through prayer. I am with you and do not leave you alone. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


God is merciful!! This is what we celebrate today, His Mercy! This is a special time of grace, this is the time to convert and call out to the Lord, asking for His mercy! Saint Faustina was so aware of the special graces being offered in our time, and she was told how to respond to this special grace:

The next day, after Communion, I heard the voice saying, My daughter, look into the abyss of My mercy and give praise and glory to this mercy of Mine. Do it in this way: Gather all sinners from the entire world and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. I want to give Myself to souls; I yearn for souls, My daughter. On the day of My feast, the Feast of Mercy, you will go through the whole world and bring fainting souls to the spring of My mercy. I shall heal and strengthen them. (Diary 206)

Jesus wants us all, every one of us, to be immersed in the flowing Blood and Water from His Sacred Heart today!!

Here is what St. Faustina was told about this feast:

When, on one occasion, my confessor told me to ask the Lord Jesus the meaning of the two rays in the image, I answered, “Very well, I will ask the Lord.”

During prayer I heard these words within me: The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls…These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him. I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy.

Ask of my faithful servant [Father Sopocko] that, on this day, he tell the whole world of My great mercy; that whoever approaches the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment. Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy. Oh, how much I am hurt by a soul’s distrust! Such a soul professes that I am Holy and Just, but does not believe that I am Mercy and does not trust in My Goodness. Even the devils glorify My Justice but do not believe in My Goodness. My Heart rejoices in this title of Mercy. (Diary 299-300)

And so today we are the blessed recipients of St. Faustina’s efforts to spread Divine Mercy. Thank you, dear St. Faustina for your faithfulness to God’s call. You have provided this wonderful grace for all mankind!

Let us pray:

(949) Let the doubting soul read these considerations on Divine Mercy and become trusting.

Divine Mercy, gushing forth from the bosom of the Father, I trust in You.

950 + Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Jesus, I trust in You!

Thank you for joining in the special time of grace from Heaven. May we all be immersed in the Mercy of God today!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

On this last day of the novena we pray for “lukewarm” souls. These are souls who have lost their fervor. They have closed their hearts to God’s call, and love has grown cold. These are souls who no longer put God in the first place. Our Lady worries very much about these souls as well:

“Dear children! As a mother, I desire to be of help to you. With my motherly love, I desire to help you to open your heart and to put my Son in the first place in it. Through your love for my Son and through your prayer, I desire for God’s light to illuminate you and God’s mercy to fill you. In this way, I desire for the darkness, and the shadow of death which wants to encompass and mislead you, to be driven away. I desire for you to feel the joy of the blessing of God’s promise. You, children of man, you are God’s children – you are my children. Therefore, my children, set out on the ways on which my love leads you, teaches you humility and wisdom, and finds the way to the Heavenly Father. Pray with me for those who do not accept me and do not follow me – those who, because of hardness of their hearts, cannot feel the joy of humility, devotion, peace and love – the joy of my Son. Pray that your shepherds, with their blessed hands, may always give you the joy of God’s blessing. Thank you.” ( March 18, 2014)


Jesus instituted the Feast of Mercy for all souls, including lukewarm souls. He wants all souls to approach Him with trust, even those who have failed in their love and grown cold. No one is excluded from His Mercy!

St. Faustina heard these words from Jesus:

On one occasion, I heard these words: My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy. (Diary 699)

Let us pray:

Divine Mercy Novena, Day Nine:

 
Today bring to Me SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: ‘Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.’ For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy.

Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
