Your Support Helps HLI Defend Life & Family Around the World!
 
One blessing in doing pro-life and pro-family work around the world is that you meet the greatest human beings and Christians. In many ways they are all alike in their convictions, their opposition, their persecution, their problems, and, I might say, their consolations.
– Father Paul Marx, Faithful for Life
Human Life International and the global pro-life movement have lost a good friend and a dauntless defender of human life. On August 7, after a short battle with cancer in Moscow’s Orthodox St. Alexei Hospital, Galina Maslennikova passed into eternal life and was laid to rest at Perepierzinsky Cemetery near Moscow on August 10. Galina was 68 years old and the mother of two daughters, Oksana and Aleksandra.
I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.
– 2 Timothy 4:7
Galina fought the good fight to the very end of her life and sacrificed all for love – love for her neighbor. Her last mission was to Latvia in June where she trained future pro-life leaders. For more than 20 years Galina, a woman of deep faith with an unwavering devotion to defending life and family, represented Human Life International (HLI) in Russia. Her pro-life efforts began when abortion in Russia was the most popular method of family planning, and the average woman had seven abortions. She inspired many to see the inherent dignity of the human person and to defend life from conception to its natural end. Many pro-life leaders in Eastern Europe began their work under Galina’s tutelage, continuing to build on what they have received.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International

St. Pius X

Dear Family of Mary!

Last Friday, Ivan and his prayer group met at the Blue Cross, and at 10:00 pm Our Lady appeared. I have the rough translation of Ivan’s comments for you. I am always impressed that Our Lady comes with her Motherly Greeting, and gives her Motherly Blessing! Don’t we need them both!

Ivan Dragicevic, Apparition at the Blue Cross – Friday, August 18, 2017

Tonight also I report to you what was most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady.

Also tonight Our Lady came to us joyful, and happy and she greeted all of us with her Motherly greeting, “Praised be Jesus, my dear children.” And then she stayed for a longer while, praying with extended arms, especially praying over all those present who are sick here.

Then Our Lady in a special way tonight prayed for peace. Peace in the world. And she said:

Dear children, as if today I desire to again call you to pray for peace. Peace in your hearts. Peace in your families. Know, dear children, that I pray for all of you. And I pray before my Son and intercede before my Son for all of you. Thank you, dear children, for your perseverance and thank you for also having responded to my call today.”

After that Our Lady blessed us with her Motherly blessing. She blessed all that you brought to be blessed.

As always also tonight I recommended all of you, your needs and your intentions, your families. And then Our Lady continued for a while to pray over all of us, and in that prayer she left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross she left with the greeting, “Go in peace, my dear children.”

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

Here is our homework for the weekend! I have gathered these messages in which Our Lady has told us that she needs us. I believe that she really does need us. As our world heats up with civil unrest and international discord, we are all feeling the urgency of Our Lady’s call. She needs us now more than ever. She needs us to become carriers of her peace and love.

And so I offer these messages for our prayer this weekend. let’s take our time, and read them carefully.  No hurry.  We want to respond to Our Lady’s need! Let’s allow her messages to help us to understand what it is she needs from us and how to respond to her call. Pray, pray, pray, little children!!

February 25, 1992 “Dear children! Today I invite you to draw still closer to God through prayer. Only that way will I be able to help you and to protect you from every attack of satan. I am with you and I intercede for you with God, that He protect you. But I need your prayers and your – “Yes.” You get lost easily in material and human things, and forget that God is your greatest friend. Therefore, my dear little children, draw close to God so He may protect you and guard you from every evil. Thank you for having responded to my call!”

November 2, 2004 “Dear children, I need you. I call you and ask for your help. Make peace with yourselves, with God and with your neighbors. Then help me. Convert unbelievers. Wipe the tears from my face.”

July 2, 2009 “Dear children! I am calling you because I need you. I need hearts ready for immeasurable love. Hearts that are not burdened by vanity. Hearts that are ready to love as my Son loved, that are ready to sacrifice themselves as my Son sacrificed Himself. I need you. In order to come with me, forgive yourselves, forgive others and adore my Son. Adore Him also for those who have not come to know Him, those who do not love Him. Therefore, I need you. Therefore, I call you. Thank you.”

September 02, 2012 “Dear children, as my eyes are looking at you, my soul is seeking those souls with whom it desires to be one – the souls who have understood the importance of prayer for those of my children who have not come to know the love of the Heavenly Father. I am calling you because I need you. Accept the mission and do not be afraid, I will strengthen you. I will fill you with my graces. With my love I will protect you from the evil spirit. I will be with you. With my presence I will console you in difficult moments. Thank you for your open hearts. Pray for priests. Pray that the unity between my Son and them may be all the stronger, that they may be one. Thank you.”
 
January 02, 2013 “Dear children, with much love and patience I strive to make your hearts like unto mine. I strive, by my example, to teach you humility, wisdom and love because I need you; I cannot do without you my children. According to God’s will I am choosing you, by His strength I am strengthening you. Therefore, my children, do not be afraid to open your hearts to me. I will give them to my Son and in return, He will give you the gift of Divine peace. You will carry it to all those whom you meet, you will witness God’s love with your life and you will give the gift of my Son through yourselves. Through reconciliation, fasting and prayer, I will lead you. Immeasurable is my love. Do not be afraid. My children, pray for the shepherds. May your lips be shut to every judgment, because do not forget that my Son has chosen them and only He has the right to judge. Thank you.”
 
November 02, 2014 “Dear children, I am with you with the blessing of my Son, with you who love me and who strive to follow me. I also desire to be with you who do not accept me. To all of you I am opening my heart full of love and I am blessing you with my motherly hands. I am a mother who understands you. I lived your life and lived through your sufferings and joys. You who are living in pain understand my pain and suffering because of those of my children who do not permit the light of my Son to illuminate them; those of my children who are living in darkness. This is why I need you – you who have been illuminated by the light and have comprehended the truth. I am calling you to adore my Son so that your soul may grow and reach true spirituality. My apostles, it is then that you will be able to help me. To help me means to pray for those who have not come to know the love of my Son. In praying for them you are showing to my Son that you love Him and follow Him. My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here; you who strive to say your prayers with the heart; you who offer your pain and suffering to my Son; you who comprehend that life is only a blink; you who yearn for the Kingdom of Heaven. All of this makes you my apostles and leads you towards the victory of my heart. Therefore, my children, purify your hearts and adore my Son. Thank you.”
 
May 02, 2015 “Dear children, open your hearts and try to feel how much I love you and how much I desire for you to love my Son. I desire for you to come to know Him all the better, because it is impossible to know Him and not to love Him – because He is love. I, my children, know you. I know your pain and suffering because I lived through them. I laugh with you in your joy and I cry with you in your pain. I will never leave you. I will always speak to you with motherly tenderness. And I, as a mother, need your open hearts to spread the love of my Son with wisdom and simplicity. I need you to be open and sensitive to the good and mercy. I need you to be united with my Son, because I desire for you to be happy and to help me to bring happiness to all of my children. My apostles, I need you to show everyone the truth of God, so that my heart, which suffered and today suffers so much pain, can win in love. Pray for the holiness of your shepherds, so that in the name of my Son they can work miracles, because holiness works miracles. Thank you.”
 
March 18, 2010  “Dear children! Today I call you to love with all your heart and with all your soul. Pray for the gift of love, because when the soul loves it calls my Son to itself. My Son does not refuse those who call Him and who desire to live according to Him. Pray for those who do not comprehend love, who do not understand what it means to love. Pray that God may be their Father and not their Judge. My children, you be my apostles, be my river of love. I need you. Thank you.”

Dear Family of Mary!

July 2, 2009 “Dear children! I am calling you because I need you. I need hearts ready for immeasurable love. Hearts that are not burdened by vanity. Hearts that are ready to love as my Son loved, that are ready to sacrifice themselves as my Son sacrificed Himself. I need you. In order to come with me, forgive yourselves, forgive others and adore my Son. Adore Him also for those who have not come to know Him, those who do not love Him. Therefore, I need you. Therefore, I call you. Thank you.”


Our Lady tells us in this message that in order to come with her we have to forgive. She needs us to come with her. She is moving out to vanquish the enemy in these days and she needs her children to come with her. But we cannot come if we are burdened by vanity, unable to love, unable to forgive and be reconciled. We will not sacrifice ourselves if we are hanging on to unforgiveness, resentment, pride, jealousy, envy, etc. Forgiveness is incredibly important in releasing us from all our burdens and sins.

 
“Forgive yourselves, forgive others and adore my Son…” This is the formula for peace, for inner strength and purpose, for the freedom to follow Our Lady in these days.
 
Fr. Vojtech Kodet, O. Carm. wrote a powerful prayer of Contrition in his Novena to Our Lady, Untier of Knots. I have shared this prayer already, but I feel it is a prayer to be said every day for the rest of our lives. So here it is!!
 
Act of Contrition and Prayer Asking for Conversion
 
My Lord, I am heartily sorry for my sins;
Purify my heart with Your Holy Blood
I pray for Your Mercy;
Grant me the grace of a new conversion.

My Lord, By the power of Your Cross,
I wish to forgive every person who has hurt me.
Shortly before Your Death You prayed,
Father, forgive the, for they do not know what they are doing.”
Merciful Lord,
Teach me mercy even when that seems to be impossible

I renounce every temptation to harden my heart;
I want to find no anger in my heart, no bitterness, no self-pity.
I renounce every desire to get even and to condemn;
I desire to bless everyone who in any way has harmed me.
I pray to be forgiven for everything I ever did to harm someone else,
Even those I harmed without knowing it.
My Lord,
Remove my heart of stone and give me a new heart, a heart of flesh.
Fill it with your humility and meekness;
Soften it with your mercy.

I fervently implore You,
Give me the Holy Spirit,
So that I might know how to love You and my neighbor,
so that I might fight the good fight and always choose to do what it truly good.
Grant that I not trust in my own strength alone
and that I not let disappointment quench my hope,
That hope that is anchored in Your strength and Your love.
Amen.
(From “Novena to Mary, Untier of Knots, by Vojtech Kodet, O.Carm. – Catholic Book Publishing Corp. New Jersey)

Lord, please hear our prayer and give us hearts of flesh to love you and to forgive and love ourselves and our neighbors. Amen, Amen, Amen!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
