Be vigilant in prayer…

January 31, 2022St. John Bosco
Dear Family of Mary!

Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good… (January 25, 2022)

Our Lady told us on January 25, 2022 to “be vigilant in prayer…” I decided to look up the meaning of “vigilant” to see if it would help me respond to her message. I found these simple meanings:
Vigilant- adjective:
“Carefully observant or attentive; on the lookout for possible danger…”
“Someone who is vigilant gives careful attention to a particular problem or situation and concentrates on noticing any danger or trouble that there might be.”
“Watchful and alert…”
“To watch, keep awake, not to sleep, be watchful…”
It was helpful for me to know that vigilance is linked with danger. It explains why Our Lady told us that Satan is strong and wants to attract souls for himself just before she told us to be vigilant in prayer. She wants us to know that there is an enemy lurking, an enemy that wants to harm us and all those we love. There is a real reason to be vigilant in prayer. Our enemy lays traps all around us that can do us harm. Only constant, vigilant prayer can protect us from his wiles.
There is a Gospel reading which tell us of a situation in which vigilance was necessary and yet some of the apostles failed at that very vigilance:

“And they went to a place which was called Gethsemane; and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I pray.” And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled. And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch.” And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee; remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what thou wilt.” And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:32-38)

Another word for “vigilant” is “watch”. Jesus told the Apostles, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch.” But when He entered into His temptation in the garden, they fell asleep. They were no help to Him at all. When Jesus returned to them He said: “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Indeed it was a sad moment for Jesus to see how weak our humanity is, and how little we compassionate with others.
But the Lord never gave up on His Apostles, and He doesn’t give up on us. And neither does Our Lady. Here is another of her messages in which she encourages us to pray and “watch in vigil”. We need to keep trying!!

November 25, 1988 “Dear children! I call you to prayer, to have an encounter with God in prayer. God gives Himself to you, but He wants you to answer in your own freedom to his invitation. That is why little children during the day, find yourself a special time when you could pray in peace and humility, and have this meeting with God the creator. I am with you and I intercede for you in front of God, so watch in vigil, so that every encounter in prayer be the joy of your contact with God. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

May we learn to be vigilant in prayer, to “pray and watch”. Part of being vigilant is staying awake and alert, looking for the Lord to come to us in our prayer. We need this encounter every day. In doing so we will receive what we need from the Lord and we can help Jesus and Mary to protect and save the souls that have no idea of the danger they are in…
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Personal Prayer

January 28, 2022 St. Thomas Aquinas
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady called us back to prayer in her January 25, 2022 Message:

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to return to personal prayer. Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good. I am with you and am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (January 25, 2022)

I, for one, have been trying to get a good idea of what Our Lady means by “personal prayer”. And I found several messages in which she has taught us about personal prayer. These messages may be a help for all of us in responding to this most recent message on prayer:

July 25, 1997 “Dear children! Today I invite you to respond to my call to prayer. I desire, dear children, that during this time you find a corner for personal prayer. I desire to lead you towards prayer with the heart. Only in this way will you comprehend that your life is empty without prayer. You will discover the meaning of your life when you discover God in prayer. That is why, little children, open the door of your heart and you will comprehend that prayer is joy without which you cannot live. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 July 25, 2001 “Dear children! In this time of grace, I call you to come even closer to God through your personal prayer. Make good use of the time of rest and give your soul and your eyes rest in God. Find peace in nature and you will discover God the Creator Whom you will be able to give thanks to for all creatures; then you will find joy in your heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 January 25, 2010 “Dear children! May this time be a time of personal prayer for you, so that the seed of faith may grow in your hearts; and may it grow into a joyful witness to others. I am with you and I desire to inspire you all: grow and rejoice in the Lord who has created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 August 25, 2010 “Dear children! With great joy, also today, I desire to call you anew: pray, pray, pray. May this time be a time of personal prayer for you. During the day, find a place where you will pray joyfully in a recollected way. I love you and bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 Holy Thursday, April 19, 1984 (To Jelena)
“I’m going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer. Take a certain time in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil.”

Well, these messages are like clean, fresh air for me! I think I do need to renew personal prayer. The key word for me is to “time”. I need to take more time just for my own prayer. My time with the Lord. A time when nothing else matters! A time to really rest with God!
Thank you, dear Mother, for your messages. They are lifelines for us all!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV 2022

Day Nine:January 28, 2022

Intercession
May civic leaders work for the protection of all human life, in every stage and circumstance.
Prayers
Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection
The Declaration of Independence boldly affirms that first among our inalienable rights is the right to life, given to us by the Creator. Yet despite being so solemnly proclaimed, the right to life is today threatened and often denied, particularly at the moments when life is most fragile. Our laws should—first and foremost—protect life. But “our highest Court does not recognize children in their mothers’ wombs as persons and claims that abortion is a constitutional right. Further, many political leaders work actively to increase access to abortion. Some falsely describe it as health care and even as a basic human right” (Priorities at the Polls). Laws and policies that legalize or promote an intrinsic evil like abortion violate the virtue of justice.
Those who work as public officials and civic leaders have a duty to serve the common good, and therefore have a profound obligation to safeguard this most fundamental right to life. Through our own prayer, witness, and civic participation, we can encourage our leaders to truly answer their call to protect the rights of all people. For “there can be no true democracy without a recognition of every person’s dignity and without respect for his or her rights” (Evangelium vitae 101).

Acts of Reparation (Choose one.)

  • Sacrifice some of your free time to do a small act of service, such as making breakfast for a family member, writing a note of encouragement to a coworker, or praying for the intentions of a friend.
  • Sometimes restrictions on religious freedom constrain our efforts to live out the Gospel of Life. We must be free to live out our Catholic faith in the public square. Offer this Prayer for Religious Liberty, that Christians may always be free to respect, protect, and defend human life.
  • Offer some other sacrifice, prayer, or act of penance that you feel called to do for today’s intention.

One Step Further
When discussing faithful citizenship in 2019, the U.S. bishops reaffirmed, “the threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself, because it takes place within the sanctuary of the family, and because of the number of lives destroyed.” Archbishop Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas and former Chair of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities, explains more in Priorities at the Polls.

Stone #5 – The Eucharist

January 27, 2022
Dear Family of Mary!
It is very evident that in Medjugorje, the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus is the center of life. Through her guidance and direction, the visionaries and the Parish have together constructed a prayer life that revolves around the Eucharist! For such a small village, and such a small parish as St. James, there are an incredible number of Holy Masses offered each day. Holy Mass is central to everyone’s day. And Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is available all afternoon in the Adoration Chapel! Jesus is adored, loved, prayed to, and received almost constantly in Medjugorje!
Our Lady wants it that way! Here are two full messages, and several quotes from other messages in which Our Lady calls us to a living relationship with her Eucharistic Son. She wants us to be near Him in the Eucharist as much as possible, because miracles happen through His Presence. Miracles happen!
Our Lady has said:

March 15, 1984 “Tonight also, dear children, I am grateful to you in a special way for being here. Unceasingly adore the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I am always present when the faithful are adoring. Special graces are then being received.”
March 25, 2008 “Dear children! I call you to work on your personal conversion. You are still far from meeting with God in your heart. Therefore, spend all the more time in prayer and Adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, for Him to change you and to put into your hearts a living faith and a desire for eternal life. Everything is passing, little children, only God is not passing. I am with you and I encourage you with love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
I am calling you for the Eucharist to be the life of your soul. August 2, 2014
I am calling you, my apostles, to live the Eucharist with joy, because in the Eucharist my Son gives Himself to you anew and with His example shows the love and sacrifice towards the neighbor. August 2, 2014
The Church needs apostles who by living the Eucharist with the heart do great works; it needs you, my apostles of love. December 2, 2015
Do not forget that in the Eucharist, which is the heart of faith, my Son is always with you. May 2, 2016
My children, do not forget that the Eucharist is the heart of faith. This is my Son who feeds you with His Body and strengthens you with His Blood. This is a miracle of love: my Son who always comes anew, alive, to bring life back to souls. May 2, 2018
Dear children, great is the love of my Son. If you were to come to know the greatness of His love, you would never cease to adore and thank Him. He is always alive with you in the Eucharist, because the Eucharist is His Heart. August 2, 2019
If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life then do not be afraid, you can do everything. June 2, 2012

Our Lady knows that we will not understand Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist by thinking about it. It is a mystery we cannot grasp through our intellect. We can only approach the Lord in His Eucharistic Presence with faith, and just be with Him. To stay, to wait, to gaze, to wonder, to praise, to thank, to pour out your soul, and to finally grow silent, is the path to experiencing Jesus in the Eucharist. And if we persevere in that process, we will be changed, which is the greatest sign that Jesus is present! He alone works miracles.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!Cathy NolanMary TV 2022

Day Eight:January 26, 2022

Intercession
May expectant mothers choosing adoption receive grace and support in embracing this loving option.
Prayers
Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection
Mothers placing their children for adoption often face many challenges along the way. One of the greatest obstacles can be inaccurately perceiving adoption as abandonment. But mothers who make an adoption plan for their children are not abandoning their children. Rather, they are exemplifying the sacrificial love of Christ on the Cross in choosing to do what is best for their children, even at great cost to themselves. Like Christ, they pour out their bodies and souls for the sake of another. The Letter to the Hebrews reminds us that, in the face of fears and trials, we can “hold fast to the hope that lies before us. This we have as an anchor of the soul, sure and firm” (Heb 6:18-19). We pray that each expectant mother choosing adoption will be filled with “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding” (Phil 4:7) as she makes a loving choice for her child. Let us all cling fast to the anchor of hope, for we have received “a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, ‘Abba, Father!’” (Rom 8:15).

Acts of Reparation (Choose one.)

  • Do you have a sweet tooth? Or do you prefer salty snacks? Pick your favorite kind of treat, and give it up for the day.
