Our Lady of Tijalina - Medjugorje

Thank you for having responded to my call.

Dear Family of Mary!

 

The Message from Our Lady, Queen of Peace on May 25, 2015:

 

“Dear children! Also today I am with you and with joy I call all of you: pray and believe in the power of prayer. Open your hearts, little children, so that God may fill you with His love and you will be a joy to others. Your witness will be powerful and everything you do will be interwoven with God’s tenderness. I am with you and I pray for you and your conversion until you put God in the first place. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Yoga: Never Place Your Faith in Unnecessary Danger

 

by , Women of Grace:

The recently retired Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska, sent a letter to Women of Grace in which he advised Catholics to steer clear of yoga because of its basis in Hinduism and to take up other methods of exercise that don’t place the faith in unnecessary danger.

Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz of LincolnBishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz of Lincoln

Even though many people claim to use yoga as an exercise regime, Bishop Bruskewitz warns that yoga’s background is much more complicated than that because it has “the intention to strengthen and expand human consciousness and the rational and mind level of the person who engages in Yoga.”

He correctly points out that yoga originated in, and is an important part of, various forms of the Hindu religion which is, in the Catholic perspective, “a pagan religion based on heathen beliefs and false doctrine of revelation involving such things as transmigration of souls, and so forth.”

In his view, it’s impossible to separate the Hindu religious aspects of yoga from the practice itself. “Certainly, if one wants to engage in physical exercises to strengthen one’s body, such a practice would be morally neutral, and would not, in itself, involve anything detrimental to our Catholic faith. However, the practice of yoga most often, if it does not begin that way, eventually morphs into an acceptance of points of view, and even doctrinal and moral matters that are distant from Catholic truth, and from genuine and authentic Christian revelation.”

He also warns about the dangers of its association with the New Age movement. “It is also well known that many proponents of what is called ‘New Age Religion’ use yoga and yoga practices, and instruction in these practices, as doorways in which to enter into people’s consciousness and wean them away from the truths which the Catholic Church preserves in the Deposit of Faith . . .”

Bishop Bruskewitz concludes with some very practical advice. “In our times, there are innumerable ways and methods by which appropriate and proper exercise of the human body can be undertaken that present no real danger to our faith or to our Catholic beliefs and commitments. It would be most desirable for persons who are Catholic to abstain from the practice of yoga and use other methods to exercise . . . . We are never allowed to place our Catholic faith unnecessarily in any danger, and certainly the practice of yoga could be an occasion of serious sin . . .”

May 25 – Our Lady of the Sea (Aix-en-Provence, France)

The evangelization of Europe began here


Each year at the annual Gathering of the “gypsies” Sainte Sara is coated with a new coat. (In this photo from 2007) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The church of Notre-Dame-de-la-Mer (Our Lady of the Sea) is located in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in the French department of Bouches-du-Rhône, close to the city of Marseille. It was Saint John Paul II who said: “I want to go to Marseille! That’s where the evangelization of Europe began.”

Thanks to the tradition of the saints of Provence, including St Mary Magdalen, St Lazarus, St Martha, the Saint Marys of the Sea, Sarah, the holy bishops Maximin, Trophimus and Sidonius, today we can visit the religious and cultural sites that gave birth to Christianity in Provence and then in all of France.

In this time of Pentecost, the apostles of the first evangelization invite us to pray with Our Lady of the Sea to bring about the new Pentecost of love on the world, prophesied by several popes and by Marthe Robin.

Dear Family of Mary!

Thank you for praying the Novena to the Holy Spirit!  May we all be filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and prepared to follow Jesus anew!

Today we receive a message from Our Lady.  To prepare, let’s ponder the last 25th message, and open our hearts to Our Lady’s words.

“Dear children! I am with you also today to lead you to salvation. Your soul is restless because your spirit is weak and tired from all worldly things. You, little children, pray to the Holy Spirit that He may transform you and fill you with His strength of faith and hope, so that you may be firm in this battle against evil. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”  (April 25, 2015)

 

I feel we have responded to this message, by our novena together!  God bless you all! 


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
