Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament .... Pray for us To Believe in the Real Presence of Your Son in the Eucharist
Greetings in Jesus and Mary!
Hello Everyone...I'm sorry I have been away for awhile. First, I would like to ask for your prayers for my daughter Bernadette. She delivered her baby boy on May 11th. He was born a number of weeks early at 3 lbs. 3 oz. They seem to be doing well and we truly would appreciate your prayers as the baby gains in his weight and strength. Also, I received COVID as a Christmas present on Christmas Eve., 2021 and now I get another bout of COVID for a Mother's Day gift that started on May 13th., Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. I can only feel that it was meant to be. For all those who may not have had the fun of getting it yet.....it is a great joy....so much so that I truly wanted to get on a plane to DC and share this joy by hugging and thanking the mad scientist who worked so hard at the gain of function in creating this "virus". Sorry - I had to share that! (truthfully, I do not think this time will be as long as the first!.....thanks for your prayers!)
Since I missed an article for Our Lady of Fatima day; I am writing this for Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. We are always in need of words on the greatness of Our Lord Jesus Christ in His Real Presence of the Eucharist! We get familiar, complacent and forgetful of how amazing a miracle and sacrament this is. I realize many parishes have already had their First Communions. This should be a time for us to reflect upon The Real Presence as well as during the great Feast Day of Corpus Christi which is next month.
Fatima is all about the Holy Eucharist...Prayer, Reparation and Love...all bring us to the reality of Jesus truly present. We also have the great Reparation Prayers taught to the children...These are all very Eucharistic.
May we pray each day of May with the intentions of Our Holy Mother Mary in our Hearts which is always to offer love and reparation to the Heart of Her Son truly Present in the Most Blessed Sacrament for all the sins and sacrileges done against Him.
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament Pray for us!
Virgin Immaculate, perfect lover of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, we ask you to obtain for us the graces we need to become true adorers of our Eucharistic God. Grant us, we beg of you, to know Him better, to love Him more, and to center our lives around the Eucharist, that is, to make our whole life a constant prayer of adoration, thanksgiving, reparation, and petition to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Amen.
V. Pray for us, O Virgin Immaculate, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
R. That the Eucharistic Kingdom of Jesus Christ may come among us!
(St. Peter Julian Eymard)
Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
I just came back from Mass at a Carmelite Monastery. The Chaplain gave a beautiful homily of how it is of a higher honor to be the Spiritual Mothers that these sisters are over a mother who gives birth to another human being! Why? Because unless that earthly mother prays for that soul to have eternal life, their duty and love as a mother remains earthly and not Heavenly! This is very beautiful for these nuns to hear as they live their lives in imitation of Our Blessed Mother offering prayers and sacrifice for the salvation of souls. One day, we pray, God will draw back a curtain upon their judgement and show them the many souls that they brought with them!
Let this be our meditation today. May we realize that in the eyes of God -- our true duty as a mother is to love with a Heavenly love in order to help souls get to Heaven. It is the beautiful love of a true mother that urges them to make sacrifices and offer prayers for their children to one day experience TRUE JOY---ETERNAL HEAVEN.
May we pray that all of us will show love and respect to Mothers and especially to Our Blessed Mother who suffers daily over the crimes committed by humanity. She has sacrificed so much and offers us so many prayers and immeasurable love....She is a TRUE MOTHER...May all mothers live in imitation of Her Love.....which comes from a LOVING GOD!
Holy Mother Mary, please pray for all of humanity so that one day we may be with the Good God Who created You and all of us.....for all ETERNITY!
Blessed Mother, Dispenser of God's graces, please send forth the graces of Your Flame of Love to all of mankind!
Thank you for your LOVE!
We LOVE You!!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
Blessed First Friday in May! We are to offer up sacrifices and much prayer for the WW3 we are in right now.
I found this image that I have posted from WW2....we may not have rationing books...but more like a digital pass/social credit score. There is a Propaganda series available right now ...posted below to show all of us how they have used propaganda and lies since the Second World War to present. The censorship has picked up to silence the truth. This series being posted for free now and to be purchased later is time consuming but SO NECESSARY...Please share because this is warfare on all of us!
Below is also a link with the truth of what is happening to our food supply chain and as I posted before...they need to replace real food with the synthetic food they have in store for the transhumans that will be left to feed after their depopulation efforts. SOUNDS CRAZY --- BUT IS HAPPENING!
Do your homework.....
This is all part of the chastisement....keep safe in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and offer up your prayers and sacrifices this First Friday and Saturday...KEEP THE FAITH!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary…
You may think…oh no…another sad article. This is a bittersweet article. We are in the Easter season and we are a few days away from Mother’s Day which is not a feast in the Church but we usually choose this day to give Our Blessed Mother greater honor and even a Crowning! This article I felt was needed after the last article which expressed all the suffering we are enduring and about to endure in the world because of its crimes. This article is about the REDEMPTION OF JESUS CHRIST FOR ALL OF US! The fruits of the Easter season!! But it will be bittersweet because we cannot talk about Easter without the cross. There would be no Easter Sunday without Good Friday.
The state of our world has brought Our Blessed Mother to tears. There are many apparitions and many statues in the past few decades where Our Lady is found weeping. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are breaking over the lack of love in the world. As Carmelites and as Catholics, we are called to unite our sufferings and our tears with that of Our Lady and offer all in reparation for sin. We, too, should be weeping!
In order to accept suffering, we need to have a true understanding of suffering. I have a book, “This War is the Passion” written by Caryll Houselander during the Second World War. You would think it is written for today because we are in a war….a different kind of war. She was very well known in her day and wrote a number of books. She had a special gift for writing about, and helping people with, psychological suffering. She herself, had a life of suffering but also a great grasp on the true meaning of it.
We should all have the basic understanding of the cause of suffering … that it is the result of Original Sin. This is where many modernists throw everything out the window because they do not believe in Original Sin or Adam and Eve…but I will save that for another article. Suffering and death entered the world as the result of, and punishment for sin. Caryll explains suffering as follows: “Suffering is the result of sin: poverty, pain, sickness, death and all the torments of the mind, all are the result of sin.”
“When Christ was born, the world was already full of suffering. He did not bring the cross into the world. It was there already. The cross was a dead weight, it was the result of sin and it punished sin, it offered no hope. Suffering was not a punishment planned, so to speak, by God. For God desires not the death of a sinner! GOD LOVED THE WORLD, BUT MAN HAD MADE FOR HIMSELF THE MISERY THAT WAS HIS PUNISHMENT.
When Christ became man, He uplifted man’s nature together with all its vital activities. He changed man’s suffering into His Passion. Man’s suffering became redemptive. By himself, no man can atone for sin, not all the united suffering of the world could atone for one small venial sin, because sin is against God and so only God can atone for sin. But because Christ is God and He has given His own life to be man’s life, man’s sorrow has become Christ’s sorrow and everything is reversed.
Now the cross, which was a dead weight, bears flower! The world’s tears, which were cold and sterile, are changed to strong life-giving wine, like the water of Cana. And now, one small suffering of the most insignificant human creature can atone for sin.
When Christ’s earthly life ended and He ascended into Heaven, He did not remove His life from man. He left Himself on earth, in the Sacred Host and in the heart of man. Man’s sorrows continue to atone for sin. All the suffering we see today, all the suffering we know in our own lives, is the Passion of Christ. If He had not changed our suffering to His Passion, we should still have suffered, but suffering would have been futile, destructive and useless. (“This War is the Passion, p. 156-157)
She also states…..”Suffering is the result of sin. It is not God who allows it. It is you and I. God did not give us our free will to sin with, but to love with. Loneliness, poverty, sickness, death, these things are not God’s will but against it. They are the things and all the other agonies of human nature that we consent to when we sin.
In her book, “The Mother of Christ”, she states….”But as we have brought suffering into the world, God does all He can, without taking away our free will and so taking away our humanity, to change suffering from something that bruises and destroys us into something that exalts and renews us.”
So therefore, ”man’s punishment is made by man but changed by Christ .. it is through Christ that suffering has become not an evil to be avoided at all costs, but a thing to be accepted willingly, even joyfully as a means in the Redemption of the world”. (This War is the Passion, p. 159)
We are called to unite our suffering with that of Jesus and Our Blessed Mother and bear it lovingly to help save souls. Throughout this chastisement we will have opportunities to share in the work of Redemption by suffering with love as part of the Mystical Body of Christ. “In my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of His body” (Col. 1:24) To encourage us, the Beatitudes tell us that those who suffer, mourn or are persecuted will be blessed and comforted. Through our sins, we cause suffering; but Jesus has come to this earth in order to make that suffering fruitful through His cross which He calls us all to pick up daily in imitation of Him….and now our suffering united to His can bring Redemption to the world.
May we pray especially the Rosary and make voluntary sacrifices to decrease the suffering which will come to this world for its many crimes. Our Lady has asked for the five First Saturdays. May we begin them this Saturday or repeat them again for the graces that this world so desperately needs.
The Immaculate Heart is united to the Sacred Heart, let us ask Her to help us to suffer well!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Greetings in Jesus and Mary..,.
There is so much happening at lightening speed right now that yes - we need to hold Our Blessed Mother's hand through this or we will be taken up in the storm! Many people today cannot see the truth because they have left God and therefore no longer walk in His grace. Their actions are an attempt to justify their false beliefs and bad habits. At least we have some people waking up about Disney! Their stocks are going down and that must mean we are on to their agenda! Nothing is more heinous and evil than the intentional corruption of the young, yet, that is what is happening with every encounter that our poor youth are experiencing and suffering today. Their parents are no longer living out their Christian Faith; there are video games; social media; peer pressure; all forms of evil entertainment. At this point, the blessings of God have been removed from our country due to grievous sin over the past few generations since WWII. As a nation, we are no longer under His “hedge of protection” (Job1:10). Thanks be to God, there are many God-fearing believers and patriots still left and still praying. Our leadership in the Church and in the Government are very corrupt right now. Our nation generally accepts fraud with much complacency today; although a few are fed up and waking up.
The Deep State along with the Deep Church of all denominations, are heavily infiltration by secret societies and have been wrecking havoc and causing much destruction for decades. They perpetuate their ideology through many systems of society and kill all dissent from their evil plans of a total communist takeover of the world known as The Great Reset. It is an ideology of godless people where its fruits are chaos, confusion and death. It is the rotten fruit of Satan’s I will not serve (non serviam). It is the goal of a person who wishes to resist the grace of God. It is the battle of the ages, Satan v. God, good v. evil. Through every century… it always plays out in the same way. God in every form must first be removed from all societies and all organizations because it is the single biggest impediment to the execution of their agenda. They have succeeded to remove it from education, from the judicial system, from the medical system, from the government system and finally from the family.
The term The Great Reset is about restructuring the world in a new image of the global elites to totally control the affairs of people, and ultimately give us all a social credit score and put us in a digital cage….namely a technocratic communism! The United Nations, the World Economic Forum, secret societies, the world’s largest banks, managed funds larger than the GDP of most all nations on earth, governments, tech giants, multi and transnational corporations are working in unison, and could pull the switch any day to create a dystopian nightmare for citizenry of the world that is barely believable. If a nation bucks the community of nations by stepping out of bounds with independent practices, they will be cut off from trade and bank funds, sanctioned, vilified, and excommunicated and treated as an outcast. Many countries have already experienced it. The globalists have a simple but powerful formula. If a country will not be under globalist-approved central bank control, it will be invaded and dissolved as a country. Being in unity with the community of nations is the preeminent and primary rule for sovereign survival today. The piracy of our climate and the push for green energy is one very big avenue of the globalist plan to institute carbon credits and force digital technology surveillance for all people of the world; creating a communist world that forces us to depend on them while forcing God out.
Technology and government are in lockstep on the methodology and the programs to implement this Great Reset. The plan was hatched decades ago. They want to rule on communist terms—by any means necessary. If you disagree, they will cancel you, and thus crush you into obscurity, poverty, and oblivion. There will be one winner and one loser in this fight. The USA is no more….the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and Christianity are obsolete and have no place in this modern new world. The communist globalists claim that these documents and all religions are outdated and have been a huge failure, and their goal is to destroy them by any means. To facilitate the destruction of America, millions of migrants are illegally crossing because their plan is an open border to weaken our economy, bring in crime and destruction and to destroy our nation’s sovereignty. Western Civilization is intentionally being deconstructed in real time. It is on such a scale few can even believe it is thinkable, never mind happening.
Marriage and family have also been under attack since WWII with a pagan godless agenda as well. Moral relativism over the years has allowed the venomous cancerous destruction of families at the legislative level. It is the communist way and found in their manifesto to create division. They not only want to divide families but also want to divide whole societies with their maniac push for Critical Race Theory (CRT) to indoctrinate youth, to become global citizens and servants of the state.
If you are anti-God….you are anti-life! They claim that there are too many people in the world. This idea helps push the concept of sustainable development: thus the need to depopulate by limiting growth. The Great Reset began its vigorous momentum with the virus in order to lockdown the world and instill fear among the people, and take away basic human rights. We have seen many dominoes fall against our freedoms since the big C virus! They will continue for as long as God allows this chastisement to go on!
As we progress into the near future, we find ourselves presently in the mother of all battles. You will either be in on their demonic plan or out of it by standing with God and His Laws depending on your response to government dictates. Tough decisions will need to be made by families. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). We are strangers living in a strange land. Navigating in these times for a believer will be difficult, so we must remain faithful to God and His Teachings for peace of soul….and eternal salvation! This will become paramount to maintain the mental stability and equilibrium to function. Yes, there is great hope, and we need to hold the hand of Our Lady with many Rosaries and continue to wear Her Brown Scapular in order to weather this tremendous storm on the world right now.
Let us remember that in the end Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph and there will be an era of peace….until then…we must endure pain and suffering and possibly death for the world to be chastised for its many crimes…and there are many. Let us pray for the chosen ones that will live through this and enjoy the era of peace before the time of Great Tribulation that will follow in these end times of the world.
May the Immaculate Heart of Mary, be our refuge and our hope!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!
Bonus Video on why the push for the vaccine.....
All of this is from Hell.....Satan has his hour.....God has His day....TRUST IN GOD AND KNOW THAT HE WINS IN THE END....All of this is to help us be aware and to PRAY! Especially pray for the Reign of the Immaculate Heart---SHE NEEDS TO CRUSH him!!!!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
May I begin with..Blessed Feast day of St. Louis DeMontfort! May we always use and honor his direction of Total Consecration! Also, I am sorry that I have been away from this site since Easter day. I have had company for Easter week and I have been trying to get things started for my garden for the first time in Northern Michigan....WHAT A CHALLENGE! We woke up to snow yesterday on the ground but it soon melted by noon...still a sadness knowing we are in Spring...GOD'S WILL BE DONE!! (Something to offer up!)
This Sunday is the first day of May and it is time for Spring flowers and May Crownings and First Holy Communions and Mother's Day! All so very welcomed after a long cold hard winter! There is so much to pray to Our Lady about and to beg Her for.....like the necessary graces that we and the entire world need so much right now. We are in the beginning stages of WW3....even if some are still asleep to the fact. All the more reason to ask Our Blessed Mother's help and protection.
I just received a request from a viewer asking for the necessary procedure in order to be enrolled in the Brown Scapular. This request was my inspiration to write about THE BROWN SCAPULAR for this month of Mary. I wrote about it during a Novena in July 2020 and I will repeat some of that here for 2022 in this month of May. We, as Carmelites, can not stress enough the importance of the Brown Scapular. This and the coming articles should prove that to you. Now more than ever do we need to wear it and pray the Rosary daily to receive the necessary graces to remain faithful during this very troubling and trying time in all of history.
Everyone should know that the Brown Scapular is the great gift that associates so many faithful to the Carmelite Order. By being enrolled (link below on enrollment to be taken to your priest) one shares in all the good works of the Carmelite Order. How beautiful. Why would anyone refuse so much protection and so many gifts?
We will start out with some important reasons of why anyone would want to feel a need to wear one. The main reason - She wants us to wear it! Are we not ALL called to be obedient to The Mother of God and Mother of us all!
I have some homeschooled adult children who have since received so much worldly wisdom as to choose not to wear it. I feel very saddened by this because I see the refused graces and I know that while growing up they learned about the fragility of our souls while living in the world. I realize many Americans have a false sense of security and that unfortunately is ALL about to end...very soon. But God in His infinite wisdom knows how to bring His children back to Him. We need to realize that we carry our treasure of divine grace in earthen vessels of a fallen human nature which is easily broken. In our redeemed human nature, there is an inherent weakness which places sanctifying grace in CONSTANT DANGER of being lost! This moral weakness has led to the formation of bad habits and inclinations to sin which have their roots deep in our nature. Bad habits are not easily rooted out and while they remain, the state of grace is in peril.
We also do not know when the state of death will come upon us. We are not sure we will die in the state of grace unless we are diligent with our confessions and continually guarding our senses from falling into sin; but we can not do that on our own. God is good and He knows that the clay of which we are formed from is fragile, and therefore; He has promised us that if we rely on Him - we will not be tempted above our strength. Moreover, He has given His word that if we use the means of salvation which He has left, the crowning grace of final perseverance will be ours. We are not always diligent enough to pray - especially during times of temptation. God the Father is so good in giving us a great aid -OUR BLESSED MOTHER..JESUS' MOTHER!
It is the constant teaching of the Church that devotion to God's Mother is not only a means but a pledge of eternal salvation. WHY? Her Heart is a tower of strength for the weak. St. Bernard says, "The Eternal Father made Her "full of grace" that her love might bestow it where justice would deny it. She is our Mother of Mercy." How Beautiful!
"The men of the world," says St. Ambrose, "have as many masters as they have passions. Immodesty comes and says to them, you are mine, because you covet sensual pleasures. Covetousness says, you are mine; for the gold and silver you possess are the price of your liberty. All the vices come and say, you are mine." Every man born into this world serves some master and offers his life on some altar. And if our master is not God it is bound to be some low passion that makes us its slave.
By wearing the Scapular, we are renouncing Satan and all his ways. It is a way of giving ourselves to the Mother of God for Her care of our soul. We must be conscious of that and not just wear it and intend to remain in sin. St. Paul says, "If any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is not His". Romans 8:9. The same applies to Mary: if we have not Her spirit in us, which is to live in union with Her Son Jesus Christ; then we have no part with Her and our Consecration to Her loses its meaning.
By wearing our Scapular, Our Lady watches over our soul and helps us when we may not even be aware of it because by putting Her Scapular on, we are ASKING HER - "Mother, please help me!" There are many many miracles recorded over the centuries to prove this. ( I may include some this May) She is the Mother of us all. She witnessed the death of Jesus for US! She wants our salvation because it was bought with the price of Her Son! SHE LONGS TO HELP US AND SHE WILL HELP US! We must have confidence in this - especially now - so live in faith, hope and love!
In this life of tempestuous seas, let us put on the life jacket of salvation -- the Brown Scapular that will help us get to the port of Heaven. May we choose safety and not put ourselves at risk of getting lost at sea! The next life is eternal which means it will never end....let us make wise decisions!
Let us humble ourselves to put on the garment of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel to ask Her for protection during this time when Satan is unleashed and seeking the ruin of many many souls. At this chaotic time of so many satanic happenings, we ask .... where are our earthly leaders? Do you feel abandoned? It may be that God is allowing this so that we will turn all the more to Him! There is no better refuge right now than the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that She Herself may place us constantly into the Heart of Her Son Jesus - NEVER TO BE LOST!
WEAR HER SCAPULAR AND PRAY HER ROSARY...YOU WILL FIND PEACE!
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel - Pray for us!
HAVE A BLESSED AND JOYOUS EASTER! HE IS RISEN!!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary....
Here we are at Good Friday! The day Jesus offered up His whole being for the sins of the world and to open the gates of Heaven for us to live with Him for all eternity!
My focus today will be on Mary during this great time of suffering in being at the side of Her Son Jesus. The image I chose is to depict Our Lady holding up Her Son to the Eternal Father for us. This is what was in the Heart of Our Dear Blessed Mother....She is His Mother....She suffered His Death in Her Immaculate Heart since the sight of Her Babe in Bethlehem....for She knew what lied ahead for both of them.
At Christmas, we hear the song, "Mary Did You Know". It is a moving song but not accurate. Mary had to have known what was ahead for both of them or Her fiat to being the Mother of God would not have been honest. God allowed Her to know the future in order for Her fiat to be real..to be honest...to be sincere. She knew what was ahead for Jesus and for Herself. Fr. Faber quotes from "City of God' by Mother Mary Agreda which many saints have read from and it is approved. He mentions that Jesus actually went to Her for Her blessing before His Passion commenced because both knew this was the time of His Sacrifice. In all humility, She fell to Her knees to receive His instead. The two knelt in prayer together and each blessed the other. HOW BEAUTIFUL!
In my readings last night, I decided to share Her love with all of you at this time. I went to Mass at a Carmelite Monastery last night. These nuns have no chaplain and are waiting for a chaplain replacement (I pray they get one). Temporarily, they are having diocesan priests fill in until this blessed day happens, if God so wills it. These nuns need so much in the way of spiritual guidance and the Church can not supply that because of the shortages. The homily yesterday was an effort but not even close to what those sisters need to hear. The Carmelite spirituality is all about love and reparation. Holy Thursday is all about love and reparation. I will say no more....but this could have been the focus.
My article today will be thoughts taken from Father Frederick Faber's book..."The Foot of the Cross". I highly recommend all of his books but this one covers all seven of the Blessed Mother's dolors in a very deep and poetic way. Fr. Faber wrote books, hymns and poems and died at a fairly early age....I was astounded that he had accomplished so much before he was called home.
Father Faber explains that with each dolor...there is a distinct grace and love that increases in the soul of Mary. Each dolor as it comes, falls upon greater love, and also upon love that has suffered more, and therefore gives Her a great capacity for suffering because of that increased LOVE.
Because of the many mystical gifts the saints have experienced over the ages, we can be certain that by a miraculous grace Mary assists, in spirit, at the Agony in the Garden, sees our Lord's Heart unveiled throughout, and feels in Herself, and according to Her measure, a corresponding agony throughout His entire Passion.
What does God allow Her to see... physically... spiritually......
She sees the treachery of Judas, in spite of Her intense prayers for him. She hears the voice of Jesus, She hears also the blows given to Her Beloved. She hears the sound of the scourging, She sees Him at the pillar, and the people around Him sprinkled with His Blood. She sees the guards of Herod mock the Everlasting. She has beheld the ruffians in the guard room celebrate the cruel coronation of the Almighty King. She heard Pilate say, "Behold the Man". She heard the wild blasphemies against Jesus by His own people which still rings in our ears and echoes down through the centuries. Fr. Faber beautifully says, "Never had maternal love sat on such a throne as that one in Mary's Heart."
When the moment has come for the meeting on the way to Calvary. Jesus halts for a moment. He lifts the one hand that is free, and clears the blood from His eyes. Is it to see Her? Rather, that She may see Him. His look of sadness, His look of love. She approaches to embrace Him. The soldiers thrust Her rudely back. Oh, misery... and She is His Mother! For a moment She reeled with the push, and then again was still, Her eyes fixed on His, His eyes fixed on Hers; such a link, such an embrace, such an outpouring of love, such an overflow of sorrow. She follows Him all the way to Golgotha and witnesses the falls, the jeers, the kicks, the trampled on Precious Blood, the insults; ALL the pain and suffering of His Way of the Cross.
Fr. Faber ends with a message to all of us. He states the following...."Would it not be an unproductive day in which we did not meet our Lord? For is not that the very meaning of our lives? If the day is meant for the sun to shine, it is but half a day, or rather it is night, if only the material sun shall shine, and the Sun of justice also rise not on us with health upon His wings. We go out to meet Jesus in every action of the day; but we require this fourth dolor to admonish us that we must rarely expect to meet Him except with a Cross, and that a new one. It is always with the Cross that we encounter Him. Why, then, are we so amazed when crosses come??? When it has happened thus so often, do we not see that it is a law, a law of the kingdom of grace, and that not to perceive it is to lose half its blessing, by missing the promptitude of obedience?
What cross we shall meet today we know not and sometimes we cannot guess. But we know that if we meet Jesus we shall meet a cross, and evening will find us with the burden on our backs but with Jesus at our side.
Some men meet Him, and turn away. Some see Him far off, and turn down another road. Some come close up, and leap down the precipice at the side, as if He were a destroying angel blocking up the way. Some pass by, pretending they do not know Him. He has been walking cross-laden in thousands of earth's roads today; but He has had a few honest greetings. Some follow in the sullenness of servile obedience, and drag their cross, and it jolts upon the stones, and hurts them all the more, and they fall, but their falls are not in union with those three of His upon the old Way of the Cross. Few kneel down and kiss His feet, and take the cross off His back and shoulder it and walk by His side, singing Psalms and smiling with the knowledge of mingling their love and reparation with their Lord and Savior. Oh the beauty of that day's sunset to such as these! So let us embrace our cross as Mary, Our Mother did, and follow Jesus to Heaven...our true Home! No one's face is toward Heaven when it is not toward Calvary....but it must be done in union with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the spirit of LOVE and REPARATION!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
We are now entering into what the Church calls “the holy triduum”. These are the three days with all of its mysteries that we have been preparing for all of Lent. In the liturgical rites of Holy Thursday, the Church helps us to relive the last parting hours of our sweet Jesus in the Upper Room, the hours of great love and importance in giving us Himself in the Holy Eucharist, the great gift of the priesthood and at last -- his agony in the garden before He is arrested. I do not cover them in this article – in that order.
I was privileged to read as a teenager, St. Alphonsus’ great works of “The Glories of Mary” and “The Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ". I realized Jesus wants us to be with Him at this time on Holy Thursday evening. (St. Margaret Mary honored every Thursday night of the entire year with Reparation) Since then, by the grace of God, I have honored this time from the Holy Mass till Midnight on Holy Thursday – to be with Jesus in His agony – to pray with Him. If we were truly lovers of our Lord and Master, we would all be there on Holy Thursday not only at the service but during the time of Adoration between the Mass and Midnight, when Our Lord is in His Agony in the Garden. His own apostles fell asleep and one of his apostles betrayed him. It is the time when His entire Passion and Death are presented to Him and He views all of our sins and sees how little His sufferings would help poor mankind for the sole reason ------ they will reject and spurn His love. He suffered enough to save us all – but MANY will be lost for the sole reason – MANY will REJECT HIS LOVE! Don’t you want to be with Jesus at this moment? Don’t you want to console His aching Sacred Heart? There is no measure of time with God. We can be like St. Mary Magdalen and offer our constant love and adoration. We can be like St. John and tend to the sorrows of Our Lady all the way to the cross. We can be like St. Veronica who wipes His face by offering our love and reparation as He Himself asked for in the Golden Arrow Prayer. And most of all, we can be imitators of our dear Queen and Mother who was always present to Jesus with Her prayers.
Another great gift is the gift of the Holy Eucharist which also demands our reparation as we have learned at the apparitions of Fatima. Jesus gives of Himself, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist. He did not have to do this. He gives Himself in an unbloody way at Mass but does He suffer any less?? NO – absolutely NOT. He makes Himself vulnerable – as a little white host FOR CENTURIES – to be loved yes by some but He is subjected to MANY MANY SACRILEGES by priest and people alike! We all know what those are – I do not want to list them here. May we pray the Fatima Reparation Prayers today especially! May we pray them always to console the Hearts of Jesus and Mary! (These can be found on this website)
Finally, we cannot forget the great gift of the priesthood. Today more than any time in history is the priesthood scorned, mocked and scandalized! POOR POOR JESUS!! We have many Judases and for those dear priests who are faithful – they are suffering as Our Lord and Master. If we all knew what a priest truly is – we would have greater reverence and we would encourage our boys to beg Jesus to call them there and to at least offer their lives and to ask if it truly is God’s Will for them – but no – Satan has caused such havoc to the priesthood that many would never dare recommend this to their sons. POOR POOR JESUS!
What is a priest? A priest walks in “persona Christi” – he is another Christ! He brings us Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. He brings us the sacraments that we all need – Baptism, Penance, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Holy Matrimony, Holy Orders and Extreme Unction. Without a priest we would not have Jesus truly present in the Eucharist – they are inseparable!
There are many things to be upset about that came about during the Second Vatican Council but this is truly despicable – the loss of love for the priesthood. To raise the people up and to lower the priest was intentional by the ecclesiastical Freemasons who infiltrated the Church. One of my friends just told me that her granddaughter was the only one in the class that could explain the difference between the priest and the rest of the laity that help serve at the Mass. This is where the Second Vatican Council has brought us and where the present Vatican regime wants us.
In conclusion – we need to make Reparation, Reparation, Reparation! May we spend time today with our sweet Jesus in His Agony in the Garden. May we watch with open eyes and open hearts to the sacrileges that have caused such sadness to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. May we offer up to God ourselves, as the saints of old have done in order to love Him with our whole heart, mind and soul!
Oh Most Holy Trinity, My God, My God, how I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament! Thank you Jesus for Your love for us – we are sorry for lack of love in return. Give us the grace to love You always and then do with us as You will.
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Mother of priests – pray for us!!
Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
Here we are in Holy Week with war in the world and a definite war in the Church! The Passion of Jesus Christ is felt everywhere in the world! Tomorrow is my favorite Holy day! I love Holy Thursday when Jesus gives us the Holy Priesthood and His Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist to sustain us all these years since His Death and Resurrection some 2000 years ago! It is truly an act of tremendous Love for God to give us these precious gifts! I will give an article tomorrow related to this!
Today, we are focusing on the evil threat of communism that Our Lady of Fatima has come to warn us about. I have written extensively on this topic already but things are unfolding before our eyes that we need to see for what it is.....communism...totalitarianism...complete dictatorship that has no room for GOD!
I have included some links below to show the direction of the world. Michael Matt on the Remnant just posted a great video on the successful elections in Hungary...and how we need to be careful TO NOT LISTEN to the world's propaganda right now pushing a New World Order which is nothing more than communism.
We have seen so much being taken from us in this country and around the world. Our US Constitution and Bill of Rights completely trampled on and we as citizens respond by compliance with standing in line for the experimental injections and remain silent as our country is being systematically destroyed. They have taken everything...our lives....our businesses...the mental health of our children...our resources...our food...our free speech....our religion...our freedom. We have LOST so much of our military either from this injection or because they were let go for not taking it. Do you not think that was by design?? Do you not think we are vulnerable for attack with open borders and no military left to defend us? Those responsible are guilty of TREASON! Who is running this country anyway....not the senile puppet you see that is only capable of spewing gaffes. We need to wake up to the fact that a complete takeover of this country is happening!
Now let us focus on the Pope who was not canonically elected and is a destroyer of the Catholic Church. He is not our Pope but the chaplain for the New World Order and is pushing their agenda each and every day. Do we not have problems in the Church that he needs to spend his time and precious energy on .... such as the 20 year celebration "Mass" of Cardinal Marx in Germany of the LGBT community (note he is on the Council of Cardinal Advisers to this "Pope"...but he has energy to attack the traditional cloistered Carmelite nuns?) We need to wake up before it is all taken from us. Archbishop Vigano is finally coming forward to say we need an investigation on this Pope...WOW....I have been saying this from the start....WHERE ARE THE MEN?....WHERE IS THE LEADERSHIP IN THIS CHURCH??? ARE WE GOING TO JUST WATCH THIS DESTRUCTION AND BE OBEDIENT LIKE THEY WERE WHEN VATICAN II WAS IMPLEMENTED AND ARE WE GOING TO REPEAT THE TIME WHEN OUR PARENTS WATCHED THEM SLEDGE HAMMER OUR HIGH ALTARS TO PUT IN TABLES???? Link below with info on how Papa Bergoglio is taking away the chaplains to our contemplative orders. Why?...you might ask. Well, if you work for the enemy, you would want to kill all sources of grace that could stop their evil plans...you would kill the Traditional Latin Mass....you would kill the contemplative orders that are powerhouses of prayer to keep graces flowing against their evil plans...you would cause division in the entire Church with its laity so they can squabble amongst each other instead of getting on their knees in humble Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament begging for God's mercy.
We are experiencing the Passion of Jesus Christ in His Bride the Church right now. We are soon to experience the crucifixion and yes that means everything taken from us! Get ready for a halt on all religious practices and death for those who are caught practicing! But we will soon see a Resurrection to follow! The Church will rise triumphant like it has never been in all of history. Our Lady will intervene at the opportune moment and Her Immaculate Heart will Triumph ushering in an era of peace! Until then, as Archbishop Sheen says.....there is no resurrection without the cross!
May we truly spend these Holy Days of this week in serious prayer and in thanksgiving for these services we are about to experience....These may be the last for awhile so be thankful for the moment! Pray for the heroism of our good priests and laity who will give their lives for this renewal! Pray that we will all die holy deaths!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
All ye holy angels and saints, pray for us!
