Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live.

By Our Lady’s Side!

By Our Lady’s Side

August 1, 2020
Dear Apostles of Our Lady of Medjugorje:
One week after he was ordained to the priesthood, Fr. Daniel-Maria Klimek (see my July 14th update) told us why he had chosen his chalice – why it had such meaning for him: https://c.streamhoster.com/embed/media/WVsBSd/xMQ52FexsiB/SYGhu2sAjTu_1?preview=1
We should be hearing more testimonies during this year’s youth festival. More vocations to the priesthood have come from Medjugorje than from any other place in the world. Listen again, for instance, to Fr. Donald Calloway’s testimony, that he gave three months after he was ordained:
Satan was harvesting then too. He owned young Don Calloway. Note how Our Lady, at the very last minute, snatched him from the Devil’s hands. 
Our Lady never loses a battle when she has her children by her side. She has warned about Satan’s activity before. Just before snatching Don Calloway from the Devil’s grasp she warned in her message: 
“Dear children! Today, like never before, I invite you to prayer. Let your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God’s blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God’s will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace.” (January 25, 1991)
Fr. Calloway told me he attributed the grace of conversion to his mother’s rosary that she was praying in response to Our Lady’s call from Medjugorje. In her February 25, 1988 message Our Lady told us all: “Pray and let the rosary always be in your hand as a sign to Satan that you belong to me.”
Thirty-five years ago Our Lady told us how to achieve the victory against him: 
“Dear children! Today I call you especially now to advance against Satan by means of prayer. Satan wants to work still more now that you know he is at work. Dear children, put on the armor for battle and with the Rosary in your hand defeat him! Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 8, 1985)
God bless you!

St. Ignatius of Loyola, Priest and Religious Founder
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
Today is Friday. We pray the Sorrowful Mysteries today in remembrance of the sacrifice that Jesus made, the sacrifice of His death on the Cross for our salvation. As best we can we try to immerse ourselves in that remembrance. We need to be overwhelmed with this reality, that Jesus laid down His life for each one of us, enduring the horror of the Cross and the shame of being our scapegoat. We need to stay with Jesus on His way to Calvary, like Our Lady stayed with Him. We need to love Him through it all. 
 
Our Lady told us;
 
March 25, 1997 “Dear children! Today, in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you, dear children, during your life sustained because of your sins or the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus’ passion and death on the cross, you will understand that only through prayer you, too, can become true apostles of faith; when, in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
We need to meditate on each step of the Way of the Cross, so that the grace of Jesus’ sacrifice will sink in and we will understand how much we are loved. 
 
Jesus, Himself, taught St. Faustina about how to meditate on His Passion, every day during the Hour of Mercy, 3:00 pm. Here is what He told her:
 
1572. I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world – mercy triumphed over justice.
 
My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant. I claim veneration for My mercy from every creature, but above all from you, since it is to you that I have given the most profound understanding of this mystery. (Diary, 1572)
 
To meditate on the Stations of the Cross is to meditate on Divine Mercy! We see the greatest love of all time, at the Cross. 
 
Today, try to pray the Stations of the Cross, at 3:00 pm if you can, but whenever you can find the time, do it! You will not regret it!! (We will pray the Stations during Hour of Mercy today!)
 
Let’s pray for the Youth Festival which begins tomorrow evening in Medjugorje! You can join it, live, on Mary TV!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!
 
“Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope. Little children, take the Cross in your hands. May it be your encouragement for love to always win, in a special way now when the Cross and faith are rejected. You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son, Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2020)
 
Our Lady calls us to take the Cross in our hand so that it will be an encouragement for love to always win!! If you read this message closely, she wants us to find the way to win over the devil and foil his plans through our love and hope. She is Our Lady of Victory! And she plans to win in this final fight with the enemy.
 
She tells us: “You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible.” She plans on winning, and we should too! 
 
I found this amazing Litany of Our Lady of Victories, written by Pope Pius XI, inspired by the victories that Our Lady had procured at Lepanto in the 1500’s. Let’s pray it today, as an encouragement to our tired souls. Our Mother is the Victorious Queen of Heaven and Earth! She will not retreat! And she is going to win with us by her side.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
 
Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who,
fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help,
and sought Thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To Thee I come; before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate! despise not my petitions,
but in Thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

America’s Diabolical Plague

By Judie Brown

A plague, or pestilence as it were, is a “contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating.” While this word usually refers to a physical ailment, our use here is far more insidious because it is an attitudinal malady that has been part of history for hundreds of years. In this article, we will concentrate on approximately the last hundred years as we delve into this sinister attitude toward people.

So, what is this plague? It is the embrace of eugenics, which, as John Cavanaugh-O’Keefe, a student of the subject, tells us is “the study of methods to improve the human race by controlling reproduction.” Francis Galton, the father of eugenics, “wanted eugenics to develop from a science to a policy to a religion.”

And so it has. ALL’s Intro to Eugenics teaches: “The principal manifestations of eugenics are racism and abortion; eugenics is the basis for ‘scientific racism’ and laid the foundation for legalizing abortion. It is the driving force behind euthanasia, in vitro fertilization, and embryo and fetal research.”

Indeed, Sir Robert Edwards, the man who developed the technique known as in vitro fertilization, was a long-time member of the Eugenics Society in England. Edwards “foresaw and embraced the possibility that IVF would enable the selection of embryos according to their genetic characteristics, including ‘choosing male or female blastocysts.’”

In other words, genetic manipulation of the human race!

Another eugenics practitioner of note was the foundress of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, who pursued racial purification, fertility control, and other deadly practices. While her image has been tainted recently by the cries of racism that fill the airwaves, it is important to note that while Sanger’s name may have been removed from physical locations, her commitment to racism/eugenics lives on in Planned Parenthood.

READ >>  Lessons from the PPFA Annual Report, and Other Events

Jim Sedlak, the nation’s leading expert on Planned Parenthood’s antics, recently wrote: “Sanger’s name may be disappearing, but the organizational legacy she put in place is still fighting for her beliefs.”

Sadly, the list of those with eugenics on their minds does not end with those who manipulate the beginning of life and kill the preborn. We find the same demented practices among those allegedly caring for the aging and the dying as well. Bobby Schindler, brother to the late Terri Schiavo—a victim of imposed death by starvation—exposes the subjective mentality among caregivers as well. He recently wrote about a disabled man who suffered a similar fate to Terri’s. Schindler stated: “Michael Hickson, a 46-year-old disabled man who was starved and died from untreated sicknesses related to COVID-19 after physicians refused to treat him on ‘quality-of-life’ grounds, represents one of the latest victims of our new regime. Mr. Hickson’s tragedy illustrates how we deny care to those who have become burdensome to us.”

In the era of COVID-19, there are many such deaths-by-design as the elderly die needlessly in nursing homes across this land. That too is a manifestation of eugenics.

No matter where these deaths occur, practitioners of eugenics are cruel. Their actions are deadly, and their influence breeds hateful attitudes and actions in every corner of our land. It is no accident that in today’s world pets are allowed to die in the arms of those who love them but dying human beings confront death in isolation.

The sad fact is that those who ply their trade as reproductive technologists, abortionists, birth control marketers, or end-of-life care experts seem to have a tendency to consider themselves as gods and are people with no faith in God. Yet we are taught that by their fruits we will know them—and their fruits are wicked.

READ >>  Acorn Contracts with Planned Parenthood Violate Federal Regulations?

This is why Pope Paul VI wisely taught in Humanae Vitae: “One is not the master of the sources of life but rather the minister of the design established by the Creator. Just as man does not have unlimited dominion over his body in general, so also, and with more particular reason, he has no such dominion over his specifically sexual faculties, for these are concerned by their very nature with the generation of life, of which God is the source.”

The cure for America’s diabolical plague is humility before God. Let us pray and work toward that goal for ourselves, our families, and our nation.

 


 
Persevering prayer

Dear Family of Mary!
 
Matthew 13:36-43
 
Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He said in reply, “He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the Kingdom. The weeds are the children of the Evil One, and the enemy who sows them is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his Kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
 
This Gospel for today has always sent shivers down my spine. Good seed, bad seed, harvest at the end of the age, and fiery furnaces…Truly this is a picture of the end times. Our Lady used the word “harvest” in her July 25, 2020 Message.  She may have had this passage in mind:
 

“Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope…” (July 25, 2020)

 
Mother Mary must see that the end of the age is near. That is why Satan is harvesting souls for damnation. It is time to gather his prey into his fiery furnace. And this must also be why she is calling us to prayer. We must discover the God of love and hope, and grasp His loving hand, so we can be led into His Kingdom.
 
Increasingly we see only two possibilities for the world and for each person in the world. We can let Satan draw us unto himself, or we can choose to draw close to God. In the first case, we become attracted by all the false “goods” that the enemy waves before our eyes and become ensnared in his traps. In the second, we see God in all his beauty and love, and decide to seek after Him, to find Him. 
 
The first way takes away our freedom, little by little. The more we lust after the enemy’s stuff, the more powerless we become, unable to choose otherwise until we are cut down and thrown into the fire. 
 
 
The second way depends upon our freedom. God never coerces us or forces us in anything. He only presents Himself to us, bloodied and broken, hanging from a cross, showing us how much He loves us. In that moment we begin to realize how very much we are loved, and our hearts desire to be one with the lover of men. We choose in freedom, to join Him in the love that brings hope. It is then that we will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of the Father. 
 
It is important not to shy away from recognizing the end times that are upon us. We do not know how long the time will be, but we do know how to win through to Glory! We must fall deeply in love with Jesus, and long for Him in prayer. We must surrender ourselves to God, with total trust. We must freely choose to follow Jesus on His way of the Cross, and fear nothing. In this way, our end times will result in the joy of Heaven. 
 
Let’s pray, pray, pray, as Our Lady asks. Through prayer we will discover the God of hope and love!!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

If God is for us, who is against us?

Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope. Little children, take the Cross in your hands. May it be your encouragement for love to always win, in a special way now when the Cross and faith are rejected. You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son, Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2020)
As Denis and I were praying yesterday after we received this message, we opened the Bible at random, asking the Holy Spirit for a passage from Scripture that might help us to understand more fully what Our Lady was saying to us! And we opened to Romans 8: 18-39. It is a very famous section of St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans. I could read it over and over. It helps us to understand how to view our present sufferings, in relation to the Cross and Victory of Jesus. Our Lady said that we need to discover the God of love and hope through prayer. And to take the Cross in our hands and be encouraged!! That is exactly what St. Paul was exhorting his fellow Christians to do as they faced the persecution of the Romans. Such beautiful words!! I encourage us all to read and reread this passage, as we pray. It may change our tired hearts into hearts on fire with love and hope!
St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, 8: 18-39 :
I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God.
We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved.
Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words.
And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first-born among many brethren. And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him?
Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies; who is to condemn? Is it Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us?
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, “For thy sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8: 18-39)
Amen! Amen! We are more than conquerors through him who loved us!!!! We can be a reflection and an example with our lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
