Please read the talk posted under "Talks". It is about how to obtain peace. This little addition will be for that talk - we must remember Our Lady when talking about peace. The talk did talk about how without Her - we would not have Jesus truly present in the Blessed Sacrament! We thank God and we thank Our Lady for all that She does for us!
We must remember that She constantly pleads with us to pray the Rosary. At Fatima, She asked the children each time She came to pray the Rosary for peace. The First World War was going on and She said that it would end - BUT - if people continued to offend God and NOT pray the Rosary - that there would be a World War II. It is hard to believe that it happened - how embarrassing!
With all the talk of North Korea, combined with the messages of Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Akita which were both approved; we can only assume that another chastisement will happen shortly. Our Lady of Fatima said, "Wars are allowed by God as a punishment for sin." This needs reflecting upon. God does not "will" war - He "allows" war. God is a just God. It is very very sad that all of these wars could have been averted.
At Akita Japan, Our Lady appeared to a Sister Sasagawa and said the following: "As I said before if mankind does not repent, the Heavenly Father will inflict a very serious punishment on the whole world; a punishment the likes of which has never happened before. Many people will perish. Pray the Rosary often. Only I can prevent the disaster. Whoever entrusts themselves to me will be saved."
Some may not understand Our Lady when She says that "Only I can prevent such a disaster." St. Louis deMontfort states that Mary is in perfect union with God. She never acts by Herself. She has been given this privilege by God to pray for us miserable, ungrateful creatures. Poor Mother! I can not imagine her grief. I have six children - She has all of us. The pain that my own children bring to my heart at their lack of obedience to the advice of a loving mother or to God's Word is very very painful. You want all to listen so that all may be happy in Heaven and please the Good God!

May we listen to Our Mother and pray the Rosary for peace and most of all consecrate your children by name, your families, your spouse and promote this devotion to more so we will be under the mantle of Our Queen and Mother.
Also, please read the stories on this website under Devotions for the Rosary. They are inspiring and true!
The Akita Prayer
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, I consecrate my body and soul to be entirely one with Thy Heart, being sacrificed at every instant on all the altars of the world and giving praise to the Father pleading for the coming of his Kingdom. Please receive this humble offering of myself. Use me as Thou wilt for the glory of the Father and salvation of souls. Most Holy Mother of God, never let me be separated from Thine Divine Son. Please defend and protect me as Thy special child. Amen.
Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary - pray for us now and at the hour of our death!
