Dear Family of Mary!
 

“Dear children, I came to you with open arms, so that I could take you all into my arms, under my mantle. I cannot do this while your hearts are filled with false light and false idols. Clean them and let my angels sing in them. Then, I will take you under my mantle and give you my Son, true peace, and happiness. Do not wait my children. Thank you!” August 2, 2005


Our Lady speaks from her great love in this message. She says she has come with open arms! She wants to take us into her arms, under her mantle. This is the desire of every mother with her children. She wants to provide warmth and protection, security and affection for her children. But if her children’s hearts do not want her love and protection, she cannot give it.

False lights and false idols. These lead us away from Our Lady. False lights are false truths. They are teachings that are not based on Jesus. And false idols are those things that become god for us, ever so unwittingly. They lure us into a relationship of dependence with them, cutting us off from the true God who created us and sustains us. These false gods are addicting and dehumanizing. Our Lady cannot protect us when we are chasing after these false lights and idols.

But then she says something amazing, “Clean them and let my angels sing in them.” She wants our hearts clean of the false idols and lights so that we can again draw close to her embrace. But who are these angels and how can they sing in our hearts?

I found a beautiful entry in St. Faustina’s diary that gives a clue about these angels singing in our hearts. St. Faustina was seeking God with all her heart one day, feeling that she would die if she did not find Him. And here is what happened: 


One day, when I was at adoration, and my spirit seemed to be dying for Him, and I could no longer hold back my tears, I saw a spirit of great beauty who spoke these words to me: “Don’t cry-says the Lord.” After a moment I asked, “Who are you?” He answered me, “I am one of the seven spirits who stand before the throne of God day and night and give Him ceaseless praise.” Yet this spirit did not soothe my yearning, but roused me to even greater longing for God. This spirit is very beautiful, and his beauty comes from close union with God. This spirit does not leave me for a single moment, but accompanies me everywhere.

On the following day during Holy Mass, before the Elevation, this spirit began to sing these words: “Holy, Holy, Holy.” His voice was like that of a thousand voices; it is impossible to put it into words. Suddenly my spirit was united with God, and in that instant I saw the grandeur and the inconceivable holiness of God and, at the same time, I realized the nothingness I am of myself. (471 Diary of St. Faustina)

Well, it seems that as St. Faustina longed for God, she received the grace of having one of the ministering angels dwell in her heart! And the singing!! Holy, Holy, Holy!!! This is heaven in her heart!

I think when our hearts are clean, Our Lady can give us angels to sing God’s praises in our hearts, as they do in heaven. I believe it is possible!! Our Lady wants us to have the grace of divine praise! The angels singing in our hearts, “Holy, Holy, Holy!”
 
Think how blessed we are to have such a Mother who not only wants to protect us under her mantle, and hold us in her arms, but who also wants to give us heaven in our hearts in the form of her angels singing God’s praises! What a Mother we have!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Have you heard the disturbing news about the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life?

The Pontifical Academy for Life is undergoing an overhaul by Pope Francis and his political operatives within the Vatican’s hierarchy, and it is one of the most heartbreaking events I have seen in my lifetime. But given the politics of the Vatican, it is not surprising . . . [Click for more]


 

One million are on the brink of starvation
I just donated!
Deacon John

In South Sudan, mothers are used to hearing babies cry because they are hungry. It is a daily reality.  But imagine the heartbreak of a mother whose baby is too weak to cry. Imagine a mother’s pain because her baby is slowly and silently starving to death.

Famine in South Sudan has been declared, the first in any part of the world in six years.

Famine means more than hunger. And the facts are shocking. According to the UN:

  • Nearly five-million people (about 42% of population) are in urgent need of food
  • one-million more on the brink of starvation
Emergency support for a family struggling to survive means the difference between living and dying, hope and despair.

We need your help to provide emergency relief. We’re working with partners on the ground right now, to support extensive food programs for the most desperate.

We cannot stand by while vulnerable women and children in this poor, war-torn country suffer from a man-made tragedy. We cannot stand by and watch women and children die from starvation. Can you?

Thank you for protecting the helpless, hearing to their cries and taking action on their behalf. Your gift means life.

Yours in gratitude,

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! God gives me this time as a gift to you, so that I may instruct and lead you on the path of salvation. Dear children, now you do not comprehend this grace, but soon a time will come when you will lament for these messages. That is why, little children, live all of the words which I have given you through this time of grace and renew prayer, until prayer becomes a joy for you. Especially, I call all those who have consecrated themselves to my Immaculate Heart to become an example to others. I call all priests and religious brothers and sisters to pray the rosary and to teach others to pray. The rosary, little children, is especially dear to me. Through the rosary open your heart to me and I am able to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” August 25, 1997

 
Paul from England has sent us a modern day story of the importance of the Rosary! Thank you, Paul, for this beautiful account of your experience with Our Lady! Paul tells us:

English: Our Lady of Fatima.

English: Our Lady of Fatima. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 
I would like to share a beautiful story which happened to me during Christmas 2016 and the New Year 2017.

I, for a number of years, have prayed the Rosary not every day but when I have had time. I have made a conscious effort to pray this wonderful and powerful prayer and I have received so many graces and blessings from saying the Rosary of which I have lost count,

Before Christmas 2016 I purchased a book by Paul de Marco entitled “Fatima 2017”. It was during the days leading up to New Year, before bed one evening, that for a split second I doubted the graces associated with the Rosary due to a particular situation for which I hadn’t received an answered. This thought was only for a split second in my mind and then I reflected on the many times I have had blessings and graces received through praying the Rosary previously and felt rather bad for questioning the power of this beautiful prayer.

I eventually managed to fall asleep that night and during my sleep I had the most beautiful and vivid dream. I say dream but I believe it was real and sign from Our Lady. I dreamed that I was looking up to the sky and I witnessed flashes of light and the people around me in my dream shouted out that Our Lady had appeared. As I walked around a corner in my dream I witnessed Our Lady in my dream!

As this occurred I seemed to float past and what I can vividly recall is the immense love that engulfed and radiated from Our Lady towards me – to the point that it made me cry. At this point I awoke and tears were actually streaming down my face uncontrollably. I then remembered what Our Lady said in Medugorje: “If you knew how much I love you, you would cry with joy!” (June 21, 1984)This was a sign to me that Our Lady loves each and every one of us and is teaching us to pray the Rosary and encouraging our faith to grow to be closer to Jesus.

Moving forward to New Year’s Day 2017… In previous years, I have pulled a saint from my saint bag thanks to Mary TV Resources. I have hundreds of saints all wrapped up like tombola tickets. I had a good rustle and it is said that the Saint picks you. I grasped for my Saint for the year 2017 and opened. The name on my ticket was “Our Lady of Fatima. To pray for a deeper devotion to the Rosary among Christians!”

It is so wonderful to receive this blessing as I had prior to Christmas purchased Paul De Marco’s book “Fatima 2017” and had for a split second doubted the power of the Rosary. I aim to pray the Rosary every day and pray for a deeper devotion to the Rosary among Christians.

I will be traveling to Medjugorje for the 4th time in June of this year with my wife, God willing, and I will say a special thank you to Our Lady for her protection, guidance, immense love and Our Lady’s gentle push towards her Son Jesus. 
God bless, Paul – England.

 

 
Our Lady really does want us to understand how precious the Rosary is! It is powerful. It draws our hearts and minds heavenward. Battles are won through our dedicated prayer of the Rosary. Souls are converted, saved, and purified through the Rosary. And God’s plan for our time is activated through the Rosary. Our Lady wants us to pray the Rosary daily, as much as possible, so that she lead us to the time of victory in her heart!
 
Pray the Rosary!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
