As we celebrate American independence, in union

 with the Bishops of the United States,
 let us pray for the continued freedom to bear witness,
 keeping particularly in our hearts those Christians throughout the world who continue to be martyred for love of Christ.
Let us remember that freedom is a gift
 from our Creator that calls us to
vigilance, responsibility, and service to our neighbor.

 

 

 

Be free people! What do I mean? Perhaps it is thought that freedom means doing everything one likes, or seeing how far one can go…. This is not freedom. Freedom means being able to think about what we do, being able to assess what is good and what is bad, these are the types of conduct that lead to development; it means always opting for the good. Let us be free for goodness. 

 

And in this do not be afraid to go against the tide, even if it is not easy! Always being free to choose goodness is demanding, but it will make you into people with a backbone who can face life, people with courage and patience…. 

 

Be men and women with others and for others: true champions at the service of others.

 

-Pope Francis
Happy 4th of July!

July 4 – Our Lady Refuge of Sinners

“I came to tell you that you are healed”

In 1966, a sister of the Daughters of Charity, Sister Catherine, who had been seriously ill for months, was in the hospital of Naples, Italy, close to death. Everything had been tried to save her life, but in vain. On May 26, 1966, her sisters began a novena to Pope John XXIII whose cause for beatification had just opened.

On the third day of the novena, while the sisters were in the chapel, Sister Catherine, who was alone in her room, suddenly heard a man’s voice calling her name. Frightened at first, she looked away. But soon she perceived a beautiful face by her bed, and a soft voice that spoke to her:

“Sister Catherine, you have petitioned me and so have your sisters. That is why I came to tell you that you are healed. Ring the bell and your sisters will see that you have completely recovered. You do not even have a fever anymore.”

The sister rang and her companions came running. They saw that her temperature was below 37°C. Sister Catherine told them about the vision of Pope John she had had, adding that before he left he advised her to recite the Rosary every day.

-- A Moment with Mary --
Une Minute avec Marie
An initiative of the Association Mary of Nazareth

July 3 – The Three Kings or Holy Magi (Cologne, Germany) – Apparitions of Marpingen, from July 3, 1876, to September 3, 1877 (approval pending)

“I am waiting at the gates of Germany”

The Virgin Mary appeared in Marpingen, Germany, on three different occasions. In 1876, she appeared to three 8-year-old children. As in Lourdes, she introduced herself as “the Immaculate Conception.” Then in 1930, she appeared to a man, saying: “I am waiting at the gates of Germany, weeping as Jesus wept over Jerusalem.” Finally, in 1999, she appeared to 3 young women, Marion Gutman, Christine Neg and Judith Hiher. The apparitions ended on October 17, 1999.

This is one of the messages the Virgin Mary gave, dated July 18, 1999:

“God looks at you and loves you. He awaits the conversion of the world and asked me to carry it out. And I ask you with all my heart as only a mother can do: Open your hearts! Carry your cross! Love the cross! Pray! Repent and save the world with me for the glory of the Father in Heaven who awaits those souls. He so loves humanity and wants people to return to him… Love God, my children, and open your hearts. Follow the path that I show you and I tell you that you will find the way to Jesus; and through Jesus, you will come to the Father.”

School Nurse Took Her for Abortion Without Her Parents Knowing, Now She Can’t Have Children
Pro-abortion extremists would like nothing more than for parents to be kept out of the decision when teenage girls are considering abortion. They claim that abortion is vital “health care,” that parents shouldn’t have the right to make the choice for their daughters. It doesn’t make much sense when you consider that there is literally no other medical procedure that a minor child can undergo without parental consent — and it’s for good reason.

July 2 – Our Lady of Piat (The Philipines) – Placing of the vestment and maphorion (veil) of the Virgin in the church of Saint Mary of Blachernae (473)

Miraculous healings still occur here 

Our Lady of Piat enthroned in its shrine in Piat (Wikipedia)

The Basilica of Our Lady of Piat is located in the outskirts of the city of Piat in the Cagayan Province of the Philippines.

In 1604, Dominican Friars brought a statue of the Black Madonna known as “Our Lady of the Holy Rosary” to the Philippines. Some years later, on December 26, 1623, the statue was solemnly installed in a small chapel, on the feast day of Saint Stephen. The event made a big impression on people. Although the area was sparsely populated and had been evangelized less than 25 years before, a huge crowd came to attend.

Later, the statue of Our Lady of Piat was carried in procession to other cities in the Philippines. This is why she is also called Our Lady of the Visitation. Since the feast of the Visitation was celebrated on July 2 in the 17th century, this date still remains the feast day of the shrine.

Miraculous healings continue to occur to this day through the intercession of Our Lady of Piat.
