Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2016)
Our Lady urges us to let prayer be life to us. For prayer to be life to us means that we consider it absolutely essential for everyday living. Like the air we breathe, like the water we drink, like the food we eat, we need prayer. It is an essential for life.
I suspect that without continuous prayer, we would be so stunted, spiritually, that we would not be able to manage in heaven. We would need years of purgatory time to clean us up, and heal our spiritual eyes and ears, and lungs etc. to handle the brightness and realness of heaven. Prayer prepares us for heaven. Prayer accustoms us to the Light of God. Prayer strengthens our hearts to be able to handle the intense love that we will be given in heaven. We need to bulk up, spiritually to be able to receive all the beauty and grace and joy of God.
If we learn to be near God and feel Him in our hearts as our friend here on earth, there is a good chance we will be able to approach His presence in heaven. If we speak with Him now, there is a good chance we will be able to hear His words to us, in their power and intense truth in heaven.
I am just guessing here, but I feel like Our Lady wants us to begin heaven here on earth, through prayer, lots and lots of prayer!!
Jelena received some instruction on how to pray from Our Lady in 1983, for the prayer group. Here is an excerpt from that instruction:
6. Devote at least three hours to prayer daily, of which at least, half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the evening. Holy Mass and the prayer of the Rosary are included in this time of prayer. Set aside moments of prayer in the course of the day, and each time that circumstances permit it, receive Holy Communion. Pray with great meditation. Do not look at your watch all the time, but allow yourself to be led by the grace of God. Do not concern yourself too much with the things of this world, but entrust all that in prayer to Our Heavenly Father. If one is very preoccupied, he will not be able to pray well because internal serenity is lacking. God will contribute to lead to a successful end the things of here below, if one strives to do his utmost in working on his own [heart]. Those who attend school or go to work must pray half an hour in the morning and in the evening, and, if possible, participate in the Eucharist. It is necessary to extend the spirit of prayer to daily work, that is to say, to accompany work with prayer.
Our Lady was asking a lot of the young people in the prayer group. But I think she would even ask this of us. If prayer is life to us, three hours a day is not too much.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The Case for the Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act

Recently, a few states have even begun to expand the boundaries of these laws with model legislation from Americans United for Life. Known as the Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act, this legislation would require abortionists to inform women of the ability to reverse the effects of abortion-inducing drugs such as Mifeprex. But a question for the pro-life layman may arise-what is the purpose of such informed consent statutes?

How do we continue to pass on the Faith? This is a timeless question worth asking, especially for Catholic teachers beginning a new school year. Every year begins with anticipation and hope, for both teachers and students alike. Yet, for teachers, there can be some apprehension of how the students will receive the message about the Faith. What is the best way to explain the Faith, in terms that are understandable yet draw students more deeply into the mystery of God?

Recently in the news for mistakenly claiming that the Catholic Church would change its position on homosexual “marriage”, Tim Kaine, governor of Virginia and Hillary Clinton’s choice as her vice-presidential running mate, is a self-proclaimed Catholic and an ardent of abortion. For orthodox Catholics, and according to every papal document dealing with the abortion issue, these two positions are mutually exclusive.

The family, for Chrysostom, is like the Church as a communion of baptized persons living in unity under the Headship of Jesus Christ that has visible and invisible dimensions. Two types of activities make homes as Churches, he says, prayer and the centrality of Scripture. In his Homily 26 on Acts of the Apostles St. John preaches, “Let the house be a Church consisting of men and women…”For where two”, He says, “are gathered in My Name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt 18:20).

Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2016)
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you.”
Our Lady has urged us to prayer all these years. She has used many helpful and powerful metaphors for prayer. She wants us to pray. She wants us to understand the value of prayer. But most often we will not understand prayer unless we experience it, unless we pray.
But I thought it would be interesting to share a few of Our Lady’s attempts to describe prayer for us. In her words, she lures us to try to pray. She knows how important it is to be connected with God through prayer.
Here are some samples:
“May prayer be your daily practice.” (June 25, 2003)
“May prayer be for you like the seed that you will put in my heart, which I will give over to my Son Jesus for you, for the salvation of your souls.” (January 25, 2009)
“May prayer become a need for you to grow more in holiness every day.” (March 25, 2012)
“Prayer works miracles in you and through you, therefore, little children, may prayer be a joy for you.” (September 25, 2013)
“May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God.” (August 25, 2015)
“Prayer will be your joy and your rest.” (May 30, 1985)
” Only in prayer will you be near to me and my Son and you will see how short this life is. In your heart a desire for Heaven will be born. Joy will begin to rule in your heart and prayer will begin to flow like a river. In your words there will only be thanksgiving to God for having created you and the desire for holiness will become a reality for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2006)
“Little children, may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water from a spring.” (August 25, 1999)
“Let your prayer become a sign of offering to God.” (June 13, 1984)
“…let your prayer be a sign of surrender to God.” (June 13, 1985)
“My call to you is that your prayer be the joy of an encounter with the Lord.” (August 14, 1986
“Pray, my dear little children, so prayer becomes your daily bread.” (January 25, 1992)
“Open yourselves to prayer so that prayer becomes a need for you.” (February 25, 2002)
“May your prayer be as strong as a living stone, until with your lives you become witnesses.” (January 25, 2013)
I also discovered that the most often used phase was a variation of “May prayer become a joy for you!”
Joy and prayer are almost synonymous for Our Lady. Of course, she is the one who said, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in in God my Savior!” She lived the life of joyful prayer. And this is what she wants for us!
So, today, may we take her words to heart, and pray, pray, pray!!!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
