Nancy Pelosi Will Force Americans to Fund Abortions if Joe Biden Wins

Democrat leaders plan to force American taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in elective abortions if they win majorities in the U.S. House and Senate in November.

 

Catholic Church leaders are becoming increasingly vocal in their insistence that Catholic politicians stop supporting the legalized killing of human beings in abortions and euthanasia.


Feminist Defends Killing Babies in Abortions: “I’ve Witnessed at Least 20,” It’s No Big Deal

Kekaritomene!

Full of Grace!

August 31, 2020
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
“Dear children! This is a time of grace. I am with you and anew am calling you, little children: return to God and to prayer until prayer will be a joy for you. Little children, you do not have a future or peace until your life begins with a personal conversion and a change to the good. Evil will cease and peace will begin to reign in your hearts and in the world. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2020)
 
It is significant that Our Lady again told us “This is a time of grace.” Everything she says has great meaning. Not one word is wasted. But it is most important that she tells us that “This is a time of grace.” Why? Because it means much more than a vague promise of some graces made available to us in this time. She is announcing something incredible. (Franjo explained this very well in his Jesus Rosary for August 26, 2020. I quoted him in my reflection for August 27, 2020 as well.)
 
Let me explain, using the words of one of our shipmates. During the Daily Rosary, Denis and I had talked about the greeting that The Archangel Gabriel gave to Mary when he appeared to her for the Annunciation. He said to her: “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!” (Lk 1:28). The Greek word used for that greeting is “Kekaritomene”. It is a word only used once in all of history, the word that describes Mary in Luke’s Gospel. Only once was this word used in all of history because only one woman could be described by this word. Here is what our shipmate said:
 
“This mystery defines the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. When the Archangel Gabriel came to Our Lady, he called Her, ‘Kekaritomene’ which translated means “having been full of grace”. Our Lady’s name in heaven is “She who was always full of grace”. Grace is the unmerited favor of God.”
 
Our Lady is the woman who was, is and always will be “full of grace!  She alone is the Immaculate One. And this is by the unmerited favor of God, who chose her from the beginning of time to be the Mother of His Son, Jesus, who would save us from our sin. 
 
And our shipmate continues:
 
“At Medjugorje She calls this time a “time of grace” which is Her direct way of saying ‘the Time of Mary’. This too is also a time of unmerited favor from God by giving us Her presence at Medjugorje. St Louis de Montfort tells us to be filled with the Spirit of Mary so as to “rejoice in God”. There is no surer way to please God!”
 
Our Lady is with us and that is why this is a time of grace. It is her grace-filled presence through which God pours out graces upon us. And we have experienced this grace in Medjugorje in so many ways. Healings, joy, conversion, deepening of prayer, spiritual gifts and blessings, and on and on. The Time of Grace is Mary’s Time. And we are in it!!
 
Let’s keep our eyes on Mary, our Mother, during this “time of grace”, the time of her presence with us in Medjugorje! She will guide us through these difficult waters to the time of peace she waits so impatiently for!
 
Thank you, dearest Mother, for being with us in Medjugorje!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

She has seen much hardship during COVID-19, but she continues to work tirelessly on behalf of mothers and their preborn babies.

Man Kills His Pregnant Girlfriend and Her Baby After She Refuses to Have Abortion

Forced and coerced abortions frequently are tied to abusive relationships, and, as horrific as they are, they are not uncommon. As LifeNews previously reported, one study found that as many as 64% of post-abortive women say they felt pressure to have an abortion.

Intercession
May mothers and their children have access to quality, life-affirming medical care.
Prayers
Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection
In Evangelium vitae, Pope St. John Paul II wrote that, “A mother welcomes and carries in herself another human being, enabling it to grow inside her, giving it room, respecting it in its otherness” (EV 99). Often the first and most basic way that a mother welcomes and cares for her child is by attending to her own health. In doing so, she ultimately contributes to the wellbeing of her child, as the health of mother and child are inextricably connected. After her child is born, a mother’s devoted care continues as she nurtures this new life and attends to her child’s every need.
As healthcare costs continue to rise, obtaining access to adequate medical care can be challenging, particularly for single women in poverty. According to 2014 statistics, 75 percent of women who chose abortion were low income. The financial strain of medical care can often place significant burdens on both pregnant and parenting mothers. 2016 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that 15 percent of women in the United States received inadequate prenatal care. As we walk with mothers in need, we pray that our efforts will help mothers and their children gain access to quality, life-affirming medical care and address this fundamental need.
Acts of Reparation (Choose one.)
  • This month we celebrated the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, body and soul, into heavenly glory. Seek the Blessed Mother’s intercession for mothers and children by offering a Rosary for this month’s intention.
  • Give up sleeping on your pillow one night. Offer this small sacrifice for mothers and children who have difficulty accessing adequate medical care.
  • Offer some other sacrifice, prayer, or act of penance that you feel called to do for this month’s intention.
One Step Further
On August 27, the Church celebrates the feast of St. Monica, mother of St. Augustine. Monica spent much of her life as a single, widowed mother, dedicated to caring for her children. May we seek her intercession for all mothers facing difficulties.

Conversion!

Conversion!
(c)Mary TV
 
August 28, 2020
St. Augustine of Hippo
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
“…Little children, you do not have a future or peace until your life begins with a personal conversion and a change to the good. Evil will cease and peace will begin to reign in your hearts and in the world…” (August 25, 2020)
 
Today is the Memorial of St. Augustine, the great Father of the Church.  He lived from 354 to 430 AD. He had no belief in Christ as a young man and his lifestyle greatly wounded his Christian mother. But she never stopped praying for his conversion. And in 386 he had a huge conversion! He wrote brilliantly about his conversion in his Confessions, a foundational classic for Christians. I often think of St. Augustine when Our Lady brings up conversion. He is such a powerful example of personal conversion. So here is what he wrote about his conversion moment, a moment he had fought off for a long time! What a powerful witness he is for us. May we always seek deeper conversion and ask St. Augustine to help us:
 
St. Augustine’s Conversion Moment—excerpt from Confessions, Chapter 12 (trans. Albert C. Outler; text from Christian Classics Ethereal Library)
 
Now when deep reflection had drawn up out of the secret depths of my soul all my misery and had heaped it up before the sight of my heart, there arose a mighty storm, accompanied by a mighty rain of tears. That I might give way fully to my tears and lamentations, I stole away from Alypius, for it seemed to me that solitude was more appropriate for the business of weeping. I went far enough away that I could feel that even his presence was no restraint upon me. This was the way I felt at the time, and he realized it. I suppose I had said something before I started up and he noticed that the sound of my voice was choked with weeping. And so, he stayed alone, where we had been sitting together, greatly astonished.
 
I flung myself down under a fig tree–how I know not–and gave free course to my tears. The streams of my eyes gushed out an acceptable sacrifice to thee. And, not indeed in these words, but to this effect, I cried to thee: “And thou, O Lord, how long? How long, O Lord? Wilt thou be angry forever? Oh, remember not against us our former iniquities.”  For I felt that I was still enthralled by them.
 
I sent up these sorrowful cries: “How long. How long? Tomorrow and tomorrow? Why not now? Why not this very hour make an end to my uncleanness?” I was saying these things and weeping in the most bitter contrition of my heart, when suddenly I heard the voice of a boy or a girl I know not which–coming from the neighboring house, chanting over and over again, “Pick it up, read it; pick it up, read it.”  Immediately I ceased weeping and began most earnestly to think whether it was usual for children in some kind of game to sing such a song, but I could not remember ever having heard the like. So, damming the torrent of my tears, I got to my feet, for I could not but think that this was a divine command to open the Bible and read the first passage I should light upon. For I had heard  how Anthony, accidentally coming into church while the gospel was being read, received the admonition as if what was read had been addressed to him: “Go and sell what you have and give it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come and follow me.”
 
By such an oracle he was forthwith converted to thee. So, I quickly returned to the bench where Alypius was sitting, for there I had put down the apostle’s book when I had left there. I snatched it up, opened it, and in silence read the paragraph on which my eyes first fell: “Not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying, but put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof.”  I wanted to read no further, nor did I need to. For instantly, as the sentence ended, there was infused in my heart something like the light of full certainty and all the gloom of doubt vanished away.
 
Closing the book, then, and putting my finger or something else for a mark I began–now with a tranquil countenance–to tell it all to Alypius. And he in turn disclosed to me what had been going on in himself, of which I knew nothing. He asked to see what I had read. I showed him, and he looked on even further than I had read. I had not known what followed. But indeed, it was this, “Him that is weak in the faith, receive.” This he applied to himself and told me so. By these words of warning he was strengthened, and by exercising his good resolution and purpose–all very much in keeping with his character, in which, in these respects, he was always far different from and better than I–he joined me in full commitment without any restless hesitation.
 
Then we went into my mother, and told her what happened, to her great joy. We explained to her how it had occurred–and she leaped for joy triumphant; and she blessed thee, who art “able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.” For she saw that thou hadst granted her far more than she had ever asked for in all her pitiful and doleful lamentations. For thou didst so convert me to thee that I sought neither a wife nor any other of this world’s hopes but set my feet on that rule of faith which so many years before thou hadst showed her in her dream about me. And so, thou didst turn her grief into gladness more plentiful than she had ventured to desire, and dearer and purer than the desire she used to cherish of having grandchildren of my flesh. (St. Augustine’s Confessions)
 
I love the way St Augustine describes that moment when he realized his great depravity and saw his soul in relation to the truth. This moment is so necessary if we are to convert. We have to understand the mess of things we make of our lives when we live without God. Then conversion is possible.
 
Our Lady is with us to help us to convert, to see our lives in the light of truth and to be given the grace of repentance and conversion. It is the best moment in our lives.
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Full of Grace!

Full of Grace!
(c)Mary TV
 
 
August 27, 2020
St. Monica
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
On August 25, 2020 Our Lady said to us:
 
“Dear children! This is a time of grace. I am with you and anew am calling you, little children: return to God and to prayer until prayer will be a joy for you.
 
Little children, you do not have a future or peace until your life begins with a personal conversion and a change to the good. Evil will cease and peace will begin to reign in your hearts and in the world.
 
Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2020)
 
Our Lady often tells us that this is a time of grace. It has always been a sort of mystery to me why this is a time of grace. But I think Frano Zubac finally solved the mystery! In his reflection at the beginning of the Jesus Rosary for August 26, 2020, he explained it this way:
 
Frano Zubac
Jesus Rosary 8/26/20
You can watch the video at this link:
 
Hello everyone. My name is Frano. I would like to tell you one story about something that happened to me 7 or 8 years ago. 
 
I was climbing up Apparition Hill with my group of pilgrims who came from the United States. And then we finished the climb and prayed around the statue of Our Lady. As we slowly went down the hill, I noticed my colleague guide, Slava, coming up the hill with a big group of 50 people. 
 
They had yellow scarfs around their shoulders and wore yellow hats.  I asked her, “What’s happening Slava?” She smiled and said, “Frano, can you greet my priest from the group? I would like you to meet him.” I said, “Of course I will.” And Father came from behind her and we greeted each other. I asked him, “Where are you coming from?” And he said, “We are coming from Nazareth!” And I said, “Nazareth? Are there still Christians in Nazareth?” And he said, “Yes, we are Christians and we are coming from Nazareth!  The Native town of Our Lady!”   And I thought to myself, they are coming here to Hercegovina, to this little unknown town. And I had always had a dream to go to the Holy Land. But people from Nazareth are coming here!!
 
So, I said, “Well Father, we have welcomed Our Lady and she is quite comfortable with us. We have grapes here too. Pomegranates, olives and lots of rocks and bushes as you see on the hill. And she has stayed with us here for 30 something years!” And he started to cry. The tears rolling down his face.
 
And he said, “I came to ask her to come to her native town.” And I said, “Oh dear!!” I asked myself what changed the situation? I always had a dream to go to the Holy Land, and now they are coming from the Holy Land to this unknown place in Hercegovina. 
 
Then I realized that Our Lady changed it. “Full of grace”, she has been appearing here now for almost 40 years. And that grace is pouring out of her to the souls of the people who are coming here with open hearts. And they are receiving the grace from heaven, through Our Lady. Our Lady is “full of grace”. She is the Mother. And she calls us “dear children”. 
 
How could she be our mother, I asked myself. I thought about it a long time. How can she be my mother? Because I know my mother. But she is our spiritual mother. Jesus told us that we have to have a second birth. And she is the one giving us our second birth, through her intercession. As the Mother of Christ, she is the Mother of all of us. Mother, full of grace, is giving us a second birth (as Mother of the Church), the birth through the Holy Spirit. And preparing us for heaven. Born as children of God! We are no more, children of man (of Adam). We are children of God. She is preparing us for that occasion. Amazing, amazing!! Amazing Grace! 
 
Yesterday she said to us, “This is the time of grace.” And I asked myself, what is this? And then I remembered, of course, it is because of her presence. She is full of grace. Her presence is here, and we need to know how to use this time, to accept the grace of this time, to learn how to really live the life of conversion. The life of conversion is to belong to her and to allow her to raise us, over these 40 years, to allow her to raise us up, to prepare us for heaven. Actually, she wants to leave a part of heaven in our hearts, here. And with that heavenly joy and happiness, we join her in eternity. (Jesus Rosary with Frano Zubac on 08/26/20)
 
This makes so much sense! This is a time of grace because Our Mother, Mary, Full of Grace, is with us. This is the time of Mary! She brings the grace! Our Lady, Queen of Peace, is with us in Medjugorje, and so this is the time of grace! We all feel it, don’t we? In Medjugorje, there is a super-abundance of grace, poured into our souls. We can rejoice in it and spread the news. We can’t keep this good news just for ourselves.
 
This is a time of grace!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. I highly recommend “Jesus Rosary” with Frano Zubac. It is full of memories of the early days shared by Frano who has been present since the very beginning of the apparitions in Medjugorje. And the Jesus Rosary is so peaceful and meditative. Here again is the link to the archive:  https://marytv.tv/jesus-rosary/
