I hope Lent is going well for all. Tomorrow is Friday already and we are half way through Lent already!
I thought I would touch on this message of La Salette because it is approved and forgotten. It helps us to understand what is going on around us, what to expect later down the road and how to live through it. I have put a link below for all to read. There is more to be found on the internet if you are interested but this has the important messages.
Also, I have read the book, "The End of the Present World and the Mysteries o the Future Life" by Father Charles Arminjon. They are talks about the four last things (Heaven, Hell, Death and Judgement) that he gave for the penitential times of the year such as Lent and Advent. This is perfect reading for Lent! It was read by St. Therese before she entered the convent and it helped motivate her to say - "When I die, I will let fall a shower of roses!" When she read in this book that the love of people would grow cold for God and each other - she wanted to help. We should want to help! We see coldness all around us - starting with our own families, church, communities, government and world. We see our own "Pope" now refusing to allow the faithful to kiss the Papal ring. Where does that leave the popes that will follow him if he unwinds everything. He is a destroyer of the papacy - plain and simple! We need to pray like we have never prayed before. We are living in a time when people are living in their bubble of indifferentism and not preparing for what is to come to all of us by being magnanimous in prayer and sacrifice.
We all need to take heed to the words of Our Lady in the message of La Salette. She is asking us to be magnanimous in our efforts. I hope this message gives a boost to your Lenten commitment to be just that - magnanimous for Jesus Who is magnanimous for us!
Enjoy and may God bless us through the prayers and intercession of Our good Queen and Mother!!
St. Therese pray for us!!
PS - There is a shorter version of the book with only 196 pages - make sure you get the full book at 336 pages. God bless!
