If you have recourse to me!

If you have recourse to me! February 26, 2021
Dear Family of Mary!
Yesterday we received a beautiful message from Our Lady! I will send it out in full today as well, because I think it is very important. Our Lady in the message calls us to prayer and fasting. But it is not out of desperation! She wants us to pray and fast in order to be filled with faith, and peace and hope in the future! This is so important for us now in these days. We must listen to her Heart!! It is a Heart full of truth for us. 
So as we pray about this message, let’s allow Our Lady to embrace us, so close that we can hear her heart beat! It is a heart full of love for us, and we need to hear that heart beat of love constantly so that we can grow in peace and hope and love!
Here again is the message:
“Dear children! God has permitted me to be with you also today, to call you to prayer and fasting.
Live this time of grace and be witnesses of hope, because I repeat to you, little children, that with prayer and fasting also wars can be suppressed.
Little children, believe and live this time of grace in faith and with faith; and my Immaculate Heart does not leave any of you in peacelessness if you have recourse to me.
I intercede for you before the Most High and I pray for peace in your hearts and for hope for the future. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (February 25, 2021)
Also, here is our prayer to St. Joseph! We want to be very close to him as well:
Prayer to St. Joseph (adapted from St. Bernardine of Siena)
Oh my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child. Take charge of my salvation; watch over me day and night; preserve me from the occasions of sin; obtain for me purity of body. Through thy intercession with Jesus, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, humility, self-denial, burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my mother.
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may serve the Blessed Virgin Mary in her battle against the devil in these last days, always living her messages and answering her call from Medjugorje, so that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph in this world.
Finally, St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgement from Jesus, my merciful Savior. Amen.
Dear St. Joseph, help me respond to this message from Our Lady:
“Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 1991)

The spring 2021 40 Days for Life campaign is underway–and so is the holy season of Lent. But what is Lent? And why do Christians across many denominations observe it? On this week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss: The history and purpose of Lent

How 40 days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving can draw you closer to God than ever before

Why Lent and the spiritual battle to end abortion go hand-in-hand Listen in by visiting: 40daysforlife.com/lent-101
And then sign up to pray at your local vigil: 40daysforlife.com/location

40 Days for Life kickoff events continue all week in cities around the world.
image
El Cajon, California The El Cajon campaign began with a candlelight vigil featuring Auxiliary Bishop Ramon Bejarano from the Diocese of San Diego. Well over 100 attendees united in a prayer procession to Planned Parenthood while the Jubilate Deo choir sang. “The sidewalk was filled with many young adults with angelic voices,” reported Vicki, the longtime leader in El Cajon. “It was a great beginning to a surely successful 40 Days for Life vigil!”
image
Stevens Point, Wisconsin The Stevens Point vigil opened with a temperature of six degrees below zero Fahrenheit. (That’s 21 degrees below zero Celsius.) But Gary, the local co-leader, said that eventually the sun came out and warmed things up…all the way to 10 degrees (-12 Celsius). That wasn’t the only good news, weather-wise. “The sidewalk is in good shape compared with other years and the huge snow piles,” Gary said.
image
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? —Matthew 6:25-26 Loving heavenly Father, help us to see the worth of all human beings by the way in which you provide for us. We would ask that you provide also the faith, grace and courage to enable us to protect that which is so precious to you. See today’s full devotional

Live the fast!


Live the Fast!

February 19, 2021 Friday after Ash Wednesday
Dear Family of Mary!
Lent is a time of fasting. One of Our Lady’s Five Stones is the call to fast at least twice a week on bread and water. Our Lady has been firm on this point, and she has made it clear that all should fast somehow on Wednesday and Friday. Here is one of her messages about fasting:
September 26, 1985 “Dear children! I thank you for all the prayers. Thank you for all the sacrifices. I wish to tell you, dear children, to renew the messages which I am giving you. Especially live the fast, because by fasting you will achieve and cause me the joy of the whole plan, which God is planning here in Medjugorje, being fulfilled. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Our Lady depends in part on our fasting. This may be difficult to understand. But it may be that Our Lady needs disciples who are accustomed to denying themselves so that when the going gets tough during the battle for her triumph, we will be ready. We will be able to think beyond our own needs to the greater good. 
Today’s Gospel speaks of fasting as well:
The disciples of John approached Jesus and said, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast much, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.” (Matthew 9:14-15)
Jesus was talking about His Crucifixion and Death, and that things would get serious for His disciples at that time. They would need to be able to deny themselves in order to have the strength to witness the Kingdom! We all need to double down in our commitment to Jesus and Mary! And that is one of the great benefits of Lent. We learn to deny ourselves again and get tough!!
Let’s ask St. Joseph to help us fast. He was a truly “tough” guy! He denied himself for the sake of Jesus and Mary throughout his time with them. Let us pray:   Prayer to St. Joseph (adapted from St. Bernardine of Siena)
Oh my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child. Take charge of my salvation; watch over me day and night; preserve me from the occasions of sin; obtain for me purity of body. Through thy intercession with Jesus, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, humility, self-denial, burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my Mother.
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may serve the Blessed Virgin Mary in her battle against the devil in these last days, always living her messages and answering her call from Medjugorje, so that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph in this world.
Finally, St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgment from Jesus, my merciful Savior. Amen.
Dear St. Joseph, help me respond to this message from Our Lady:
“Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 1991)
(Don’t forget to pray the St. Joseph Prayer this weekend.)
Finally, Stefanie has transcribed the homily that Fr. Leon gave on the Thursday after Ash Wednesday at English Mass in Medjugorje. Talk about being tough! Fr. Leon makes it clear that we cannot be so comfortable with our lifestyles that we will compromise with the forces of evil just to stay comfortable. Here is the homily:
English Homily in Medjugorje Thursday, February 18, 2021 Fr. Leon Pereira
The Lord be with you!   A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke (Luke 9:22-25)   At that time, Jesus said to His disciples, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes; and be killed. And on the third day, be raised.” And he said to all, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life, will lose it. And whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?”   The Gospel of the Lord
HOMILY   Many years ago when I was a novice in Edinboro, in the local newspaper, “The Scotsman” – the national newspaper – they had an article, and the headline was, “I am a Catholic in the football sense.” And it was actually a real quote from a young man; and what he meant was, his Catholicism was, he supported Celtic, the football club: “I am a Catholic in a football sense.” And the article was about, is Catholicism more or less meaningless in Scotland in the year 1998?   Now, there is a lot of this “Catholic in a football sense.” When we look at history, Catholicism doesn’t necessarily take deep roots in a culture. The whole culture is affected, and people go along with it. For example, here, here in Medjugorje in the early days, Gospa – Our Lady – complained. She said, “Many of you are fasting, but only because everyone else is fasting.” And she said, “Fast from the heart.” So, there’s this idea like, “if everyone else is doing it, then I’ll do it too.”   So, for example, in our time, very Catholic countries like, The Philippines, and Kerala, Southwest India, when they migrate and go to the west, if they don’t keep up their cultural trappings – their festivals, their food, etc. – you very rapidly see, the faith, also, be eroded among them; very quickly.   So, one of the things in history that we see, is that the English church was almost completely destroyed by The Reformation – so-called “Reformation” – and very few people, “The Refuseniks” refused to conform. They were called the “Recusants.” And then, the Irish started coming across, for all sorts of reasons – to work in the fields, the farms, the factories – and they started to lapse very quickly from Catholicism. And the English Catholics – the very few who were there – were so appalled, they thought, “We need allies, we need more allies!” So, they worked among them; and then the faith was kept.    Why does this happen?    When Cardinal Basil Hume of Westminster died, they said on the radio, “Here, at last, was a man who made Catholicism respectable.” Respectable enough for the English. This is such a condescending thing to say. But what they meant was, “We don’t like Catholics. They are beneath us. They’re beneath our dignity.” And, of course, that puts a pressure on Catholics. “You can be just like us. You could be acceptable, respectable, if you sacrifice your faith.”   We see this in America with politicians. Just a few days ago, they had a vote in the Senate to say that “every baby born alive must be protected and given treatment, whether she is born through natural birth, or whether she is born through an induced abortion.” And it failed by 8 votes. And 13 Catholics voted in favor of letting these babies die: 13 Catholics. They could have swung the vote. But their Catholicism meant nothing to them. Nothing.    They wanted to be part of the world. They wanted to be part of the Democratic Party, I suppose; of that Leftist Culture, of killing babies, even when they’re born alive. Their Catholicism did not mean that much.    “I’m Catholic, but only in a football sense.” “I’m Catholic when it suits me.” “I’m Catholic when it’s St. Patrick’s Day.”    What does that mean?   Well, the collapse of the Church in many parts of the world – it happens traditionally in Catholic cultures. In the 70’s, or 60’s, even, it happened in Quebec. And when it happened in Quebec, I think, many people realized, “This is going to happened in Ireland.” And it did. And it’s happening now in Malta, Poland, all these other countries; and Singapore, where I’m from. I’m sure the Church will collapse there, if things carry on. Because, it hasn’t taken root, really, in the hearts of people. It is “something we do because everyone else does it.” But when everyone else stops doing it, then we stop doing it too. That’s not a Faith. That’s, “Catholic in a football sense.” And then, what do we do? We vote for abortion and call ourselves, “catholic.”    This is what’s coming, for all of us, everywhere. Jesus asks us to choose. He tells us very plainly why the Son of Man has come: “To suffer, be rejected, and be killed; and on the third day, rise.” This is why He comes. There is no “Christ” without “the Cross.” There is NO “Gospel of Oprah Winfrey.” Of Deepak Chopra. And all that nonsense. You know, “Christ-centered consciousness;” or some New Age babble…   You see, when the Church collapses, in all “the manure,” you find “the Diamond:” the people who have kept the faith. I chose that image deliberately – deliberately! For all those who want to say they are “Catholic in a football sense,” I’m telling you: “You are manure.”    Choose. Choose Jesus. Be a Diamond. Don’t be manure.    And then Jesus says, “If you would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross.” 
I don’t think the world is ever going to be, “the way it was.” Everyone needs to live. You need a job. You need some money coming in. You need food, and money to pay the bills, and all that. That’s true. But things are never going to be “the way they were.” And if you desire that, then you are ripe – ripe! – for the antichrist when he comes. Because he will promise you everything you want: Your life as it was before. “All you have to do is sign on the dotted line. (Don’t read the fine print.)” And many people will do this, because they want their lives “the way they were.” It’s never going to be that way.    Choose, every day. Choose Christ. Christ, for His sake. Christ, with the Cross. Not, “Christ in the football sense.” Not, Christ in a cultural sense. Not, Christ in the sense of “pierogi.” Or any other thing.  NO! The Real Jesus: Jesus who hangs on that cross.    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

That didn’t take long! We’ve already received the campaign’s first report of a baby saved from abortion through YOUR prayers–from freezing Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! “We are here for the mom and the baby,” Gerry said as he offered some literature to an abortion-vulnerable mom. “I know,” the expectant mother replied. “I just canceled my appointment!” Philadelphia leader Monique said that as the woman left the abortion facility, she told vigil participants that their prayers had been answered.
Thanks to everyone who stood in the cold and prayed today,” Monique wrote to her volunteers. Like in much of the United States, winter weather has been terrible in the City of Brotherly Love–with another snow and ice storm set to hit today. But Monique and her team will be back out on the sidewalk regardless of the weather… …because your witness in bad conditions is a powerful sign of love that results in even more babies saved from abortion than when the weather is pleasant!

Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland didn’t even wait for the campaign to begin to start saving babies! As a participant in Cleveland’s 40 Days for Life 365 vigil, Fred was out praying on Friday when a mother rolled down her window to make an announcement. “I’m not going to do it!” she enthusiastically told Fred. “Normally, women and men leaving the abortion facility keep their car windows closed and ignore me,” Fred recounted. When Fred asked for clarification to make sure he wasn’t misunderstanding the woman, the proud mom exclaimed once again, “I’m not going to do it!”

Choose life!


Choose Life

February 18, 2021 Thursday after Ash Wednesday
Dear Family of Mary!
The readings at Mass during Lent are so powerful. Here is the first reading for today:
A reading from the Book of Deuteronomy:
Moses said to the people: “Today I have set before you life and prosperity, death and doom. If you obey the commandments of the Lord, your God, which I enjoin on you today, loving him, and walking in his ways, and keeping his commandments, statutes, and decrees, you will live and grow numerous, and the Lord, your God, will bless you in the land you are entering to occupy. If, however, you turn away your hearts and will not listen, but are led astray and adore and serve other gods, I tell you now that you will certainly perish; you will not have a long life on the land that you are crossing the Jordan to enter and occupy. I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land that the Lord swore he would give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” (Deuteronomy 30:15:20)
“Choose life, then…” The Lord spoke to His people through Moses! Choose life!! God cannot choose life for us. He gives us life at conception, but from then on, we have to yearn for life, choose life, by choosing His way. The Creator alone knows the way to real life, eternal life. And it is our joy and blessing to listen to Him and follow that way. 
Our Lady said to us:
“Dear children! Particularly at this holy time of penance and prayer, I call you to make a choice. God gave you free will to choose life or death. Listen to my messages with the heart that you may become cognizant of what you are to do and how you will find the way to life. My children, without God you can do nothing; do not forget this even for a single moment. For, what are you and what will you be on earth, when you will return to it again. Do not anger God but follow me to life. Thank you for being here.” (March 18, 2003)
It couldn’t be plainer. Our Lady wants us to choose life and has been sent to help us to do it. Her messages make a pathway for us into the Father’s embrace. “Listen to my messages with the heart that you may become cognizant of what you are to do and how you will find the way to life.”
May we choose life and not death of the soul today and every day after. 
St. Joseph, help us to follow Our Lady on the path towards life!
Prayer to St. Joseph (adapted from St. Bernardine of Siena)
Oh my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child. Take charge of my salvation; watch over me day and night; preserve me from the occasions of sin; obtain for me purity of body. Through thy intercession with Jesus, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, humility, self-denial, burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my Mother.
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may serve the Blessed Virgin Mary in her battle against the devil in these last days, always living her messages and answering her call from Medjugorje, so that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph in this world.
Finally, St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgment from Jesus, my merciful Savior. Amen.
Dear St. Joseph, help me respond to this message from Our Lady:
“Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 1991)

Madison, Wisconsin
Subzero temperatures in Madison couldn’t dampen enthusiasm as more than 100 people braved snow and ice to hear 40 Days for Life Outreach Director and longtime Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer expose her former employer’s plan to increase pill-induced abortions. Sue’s talk was timely as the Madison campaign unveiled a new outreach to make women aware that they might be able to reverse their chemical abortion–even after ingesting the first pill. The local abortion pill reversal physician presented the science and results of abortion pill reversal. The Madison campaign team then distributed 100 signs and many flyers to help educate women that it might not be too late to rescue their baby after taking that first pill.

image
Hudson, New York Hudson vigil leader Pastor Craig shared that he was moved to launch a 40 Days for Life campaign in his community after Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated a barbaric new law legalizing abortion up to the day of birth by lighting up landmarks across the state in pink. “We’re called as God’s people to stand for what’s right…” he said. “Regardless of what popular opinion is, regardless of what slander comes your way because of it, God’s shown us what’s right.” Pastor Craig used the kickoff rally to encourage his volunteers to take heart amidst difficult days. “The tendency can be to get down, to not do anything, to watch the news, to get discouraged,” he said.
“[But] we are spirit-filled, blood-bought children of God, filled with light, filled with life, who are called to be instruments of change, vessels for God to use to bring light to darkness!” Amen!

image
Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast … Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, “Spare, O Lord, your people.” —Joel 2:15-17 Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth. See today’s full devotional

Dear Family of Mary!
A Reading from the Book of the Prophet Joel 2:12-18
Even now, says the Lord, return to me with your whole heart,  with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;  Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the Lord, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.   Perhaps he will again relent and leave behind him a blessing, Offerings and libations/ for the Lord, your God.
Blow the trumpet in Zion! proclaim a fast, call an assembly; Gather the people, notify the congregation;  Assemble the elders, gather the children and the infants at the breast; Let the bridegroom quit his room and the bride her chamber. Between the porch and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep, And say, “Spare, O Lord, your people, and make not your heritage a reproach, with the nations ruling over them!  Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’”
Then the Lord was stirred to concern for his land and took pity on his people. (Joel 2:12-18) A Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje:
“Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 25, 2020 In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2021

Prayer to St. Joseph (adapted from St. Bernardine of Siena)
Oh my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child. Take charge of my salvation; watch over me day and night; preserve me from the occasions of sin; obtain for me purity of body. Through thy intercession with Jesus, grant me a spirit of sacrifice, humility, self-denial, burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my Mother.
O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may serve the Blessed Virgin Mary in her battle against the devil in these last days, always living her messages and answering her call from Medjugorje, so that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph in this world.
Finally, St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying, and obtain for me a favorable judgement from Jesus, my merciful Savior. Amen.
Dear St. Joseph, help me respond to this message from Our Lady:
“Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 1991)
