I am leaving tomorrow to see my daughter at college so I will not be able to do another article until I get back.
Just wanted to reach out - like everyone else - to comment on this Amazon Synod. We are leaning toward a One World Order with Pope Francis leading the way with a One World Religion which has been in the works for a long long time.
I can not say it better than Michael Matt with this (below). I will also post - once again - the talk made by Elizabeth Yores on the future of our Catholic Church. Get prepared - we may have to go underground - if that is possible with the new technology.
Here are the two talks - pass them on and get prepared with your faithfulness to the one true Church and with the weapon Our Lady gave us - The Rosary. God bless!!
PS - Another article on Pope Francis and Our Lady Undoer of Knots posted on this website under "Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary".
I have posted below a Church Militant article about how the Wiccan occult will be placing a curse on Trump TODAY. This is the third year they are doing this and they say it is working.
The article has alarming statistics of growing members of Satan worshipers - while the Catholic Church either switches to new denominations or SLEEPS! This is not Church Militant. We must be soldiers for Christ and know that our prayers and the power of God will prevail. Let us pick up our powerful Rosaries and storm heaven for a miracle and put an end to this attack on our duly elected President.
Only the Catholic Church has Exorcists. In fact - many Protestants go to them when in need - serious need! We hold the Deposit of Faith handed down to us by Jesus through the Apostles in the Catholic Church. Let us stand strong against the enemy that is fighting - we must fight back! Pick up your weapon the Rosary and PRAY with strong faith.
This is incredible that just as John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus Christ, we now have the satanists paving the way for the Anti-Christ - Get ready folks - keep your eyes and ears open as well as your heart and your mind because he isn't coming with horns and a tail.
Holy Mother of God, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary - please pray for us and our country!
Please share with all those you love that we may pray for our President and our country.
We are entering Fall and it is beautiful but winter is around the corner. Our hearts are not as light as when we have a long day of sunshine. We see war and strife in the world. We see trouble in our country, our world, our Church - our families!! God is Love and has given us remedies for repair and for joy!
There is a mystic from France named Marie-Julie Jahenny, born in 1850 in Brittany France, who is worth reading about. (link below) There is so much revealed to her which is happening today. I will have to touch on it later. Below are some prayers revealed to her so that we could participate in making reparation for the sins committed today. My website is all about making reparation. That is the life of a Carmelite. This is the life of St. Teresa, St. Therese, St. John and the many others. But God is so good that we can not give to Him without the joy being received into our soul. He gives back a hundred fold.
Here are some prayers that you may want to copy and paste on a word document and keep handy with your prayer book to be prayed daily. They are beautiful.
Marie-Julie’s heavenly visitors would often share with her new devotions they wished to impart, or, to reveal new promises to already existing devotions, mercifully enriching them with more graces to encourage the faithful to practice them. There are also numerous little prayers, spiritual reminders and aspirations throughout the texts. Included below are only part of the devotions and prayers given to Marie-Julie.
Litany of the Passion: A Prayer of Reparation before the Blessed Sacrament
Our Lord requested this prayer to be said before the Blessed Sacrament and He promised to those who would recite this prayer as a great mark of their love for Him, He would grant them a solemn happiness. Our Lord: “They will say passing over in their heart (meditating on) all that I have done for them for love. As a reward, at their death, I will almost immediately attract them in the eternal sojourn.” (The soul will be immediately attracted to Him and draw upon themselves all the necessary graces for salvation at that critical moment.) Our Lord said: “Burn with love for Me, I will let escape from My Heart the last stream that will set you ablaze. My Love comes to search for your prayers to soften the pain caused by all the offenses.” (i.e. offenses committed against Him in the Blessed Sacrament.) Our Lord also promised: “I will bless those who say this prayer at least once a day, I will give them a solemn benediction.” When Marie-Julie passed on the litany He taught her, she asked: “Lord, will You be willing to remain with us until the end of time?” (i.e. in the Blessed Sacrament.) He answered. “This is Love.”
The Litany of the Passion
Oh my very dear Jesus, what brought You to suffer for us a mortal Agony in the Garden of Olives: It is Love.
Oh My Adorable Jesus, what brought You to separate Yourself from Your Apostles during this Agony: It is Love.
Oh My Jesus, what brought You to leave the executioners and the Jews torture and bind You: It is Love.
Oh My Jesus, what brought You to appear before the tribunal of Pilate: It is Love.
Oh My Jesus, what brought You to descend into the obscure prison of Herod: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to allow the executioners scourge You without a complaint from You: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to separate Yourself from Your Holy Mother in order to suffer insults: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to cast a glance at St. Peter when leaving the Praetorium: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to fall before Your enemies under (their) weight: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to die for us on a Cross: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to give Yourself to our souls in the Most Holy
Sacrament: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to reside for us in all the Shrines and Tabernacles in the entire world: It is Love.
Oh Holy Victim, what brought You to tell us 'Dear Children, do not fear, come close, I sleep, but My Heart watches': It is Love.
Adorable Sacred Victim, what brought You to let us approach Your Holy Tabernacles, to possess You and dissolve into these delights: It is Love. It is Love.
Oh Most Holy Victim, what brought You to love us with a Love so Ardent and full of Goodness: It is Love. It is Love.
ALSO --our Lord gave Marie-Julie on September 3, 1925 a very simple way to save 1,000 sinners every time we receive Holy Communion.
“Tell them to rest five minutes on My Heart throbbing with love. Think only of Me by this simple word: “Thank you, my Beloved, You live in me and I live in You.” You see the sweetness you will taste and how you will give Me consolation. Ask of Me, in the fifth minute the conversion of a thousand sinners. It will be a great joy for My Divine Father, for Heaven, I ask you the same favor. I will be there, inside you, infinite goodness, the splendor of all beauties. Only five minutes thinking about Me and asking Me at the fifth minute for the salvation of souls. My Divine Heart is overflowing with joy at this request of graces and I will also grant it.”
Immediately after we receive Communion, we are to rest and meditate on Him and His Sacred Heart for five minutes, saying the little prayer He gave, then at the fifth minute, ask for the grace of 1,000 sinners.
Promises to the Devotion to the Wound on Our Lord’s Shoulder
During various ecstasies Our Lord disclosed to Marie-Julie that devotion to this Wound was a great consolation for Him, and granted promises to this devotion.
Our Lord showed her this gaping, open Wound and revealed its depth: “The Pain is incomprehensible in the hearts of My children!!! How this devotion pleases and consoles Me, how often have the prayers of these Wounds risen to My Heart and have torn (open) the (way of) salvation for souls entrusted to Hell.” (May 17, 1878)
Promises collected during the ecstasies of Marie-Julie, for souls who propagate and are faithful to this devotion:
1 - “I will bless all the souls who propagate this devotion: I grant them abundant graces.” (March 29, 1878)
2 - “O souls who love Me, who propagate this devotion, I take you under My protection, I keep you under the mantle of My affection.” (March 29, 1878)
3 - “I will dispel the darkness that will come to their heart.” (December 28, 1877)
4 - “I will console them in their pains.” “I will come in the midst of their greatest afflictions, to enlighten, to comfort them.” (February 8, 1878) (28 December 1877, February 8 and April 12, 1878)
5 - “I will come to bless them in their undertakings.” (March 29, 1878)
6 - “I will give them a tender love for the Cross. I will come to assist them at the time of death, with this cross and I will introduce them into My Heavenly Kingdom.” (April 12, 1878)
7 - “I will sweeten their agony.” (December 28, 1877). “I will come at the hour of death. I will console them in their passage.” (February 8, 1878). “Especially at the hour of death, I will come to give them a sweet moment of calm and tranquility. I will tell them: 'O good holy soul, who has spread this devotion (knowing) that I had so much at heart that it be made known, come to receive the reward of your labors, the fruit of blessing.'.” (March 29, 1878)
8 - “I will shelter them, I will assist them, I will console all the souls that seek to propagate this Sacred Wound. At the time of death, I will console the souls that have compensated Me by their devotion and compassion to the Wound so deep and painful. I will come to strengthen them in their final fears. I will come and prepare their passage: Thank you, you who have compensated Me for My pains.” (May 17,1878)
9 - “See,” Jesus said, pointing to His Sacred Wound with extreme tenderness, “all My children who have recognized this Wound, who have venerated it, have prayed to it, will have on the Last Day a great and generous reward. I do not simply show it, I pronounce it. My Word is Divine.” (May 17, 1878)
Tomorrow is the feast of a great saint of the Order of Carmel. She is known as the great reformer which she is. At her time, the Carmelites were lax and not as disciplined as in previous times. Our Lord wanted her to make reforms to bring it back to prayer and austerity for His greater glory and for the salvation of souls. Below, I have included a clip on her vision of hell. This was more of a means of inspiration for her to take on all the sufferings WHICH WERE MANY in order to achieve what God had intended for her to do in order to reform the Carmelite Order and draw souls to Him and to help Him and Our Lady win many many souls through their prayers and sufferings.
Do we need another reform???? NOW MORE THAN EVER - not just in the way of disciplines but in the way of doctrine as well. This makes it more important and more dire than in the days of St. Teresa!! We are denying the very principles that the Carmelite Order was built upon. Needless to say - this is the reason for this website. We are living in a time when it is difficult in the Novus Ordo Church to allow such a reform to happen - "we are going forward - we are modernizing - we are NOT going back."
I have met with resistance to this - "Going back to Tradition" in the Carmelite Order. I believe it will happen in time - until then -- we have to deal with the modernists and do what we can behind closed doors.
St. Teresa pray that we may have determined determination to draw close to God and unite ourselves to His Holy Will in imitation of our Blessed Mother!
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel pray for us.
St. Teresa pray for us.
NOTE: This vision of hell is to help all of us endure all the sufferings in this life so that we can be with our Lord and our Lady in the next. May we strive to do the Will of God and nothing else as St. Teresa did.
Today is the Feast of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. There is alot for us to ponder on this day as well as the power of the Rosary which Our Lady told us we needed to pray each day for peace. The message is still the same.
Below is a homily which gives insight on the miracle of the sun. We should share this news with those we love because it is a message given to all of us by Our Blessed Mother AND - it is a public miracle! This is significant - which means it is not a private revelation meant for a few - but for ALL. May we pay attention and share this message with all.
God bless us through the prayers and intercession of our great Queen and Mother.
As you all know –a lot is being unleashed upon us in the world and in the Church but we can’t forget that we have problems in the Catholic Church without these scandals heaved upon us at the present moment. We have Christians who look at Jesus as just a man and not a living God! (Including the Pope????) Link below.
The decay of Christianity is due to the tendency to regard Jesus only as a memory of a man who taught and lived. God is too good to give us the gift of Jesus and permit His human existence to last ONLY from the crib to the Cross. “Behold I am with you all days even to the consummation of the world”. It is the fullness of Christ-Life, beating and throbbing at this very hour in millions of souls right now, which gives flesh and blood to His teaching and His example. He lives today! His example is not something that HAS happened, but something that IS happening.
Bishop Fulton Sheen has stated: "The great tragedy of history is not that men should fall, but that they should fail to rise to the full realization of their vocation as children of God." In other words, that they should miss so much by not having a loving relationship through prayer.
Today we see vast multitudes of men and women of refinement and culture, endowed with intelligence and possessed of every natural virtue and every now and then swept by emotions and ideals that are noble, but who are living second-rate, superficial, unimportant and morally insignificant lives, because they have never had their “nature enkindled into flame by the Spirit of Christ” which comes from a true prayer life. They may do much for the world in the material order, they may build bridges, create computers or robots, accomplish great pieces of research, but they never fill the depths of their souls which can be filled ONLY by God. The world of the supernatural has no more appeal to them than heroism has appeal for a coward. They have become so used to the dense atmosphere of the material, that they are stifled in the atmosphere of the supernatural.
In this lies the danger of our whole civilization which is gradually turning away from God. Nothing great, nothing really good was ever done in this world by any human life that had not a baptism of God’s Holy Ghost. “Without Me, you can do nothing”. Jesus’ Life is not something which WAS lived; it is something which IS BEING LIVED in us now. “I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more. But you see Me: because I live and you shall live. In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” John 14 18:20
So what does it mean to be a true Christian and why should I want others to be evangelized? Christianity is not a system of ethics, it is a life. It is not good advice, it is Divine adoption. Being a Christian does not consist in being kind to the poor, going to church, reading the Bible, singing hymns, being generous to relief agencies, just to employees, gentle to cripples, serving on Church committees, though it includes ALL of these. IT IS FIRST AND FOREMOST A LOVE RELATIONSHIP THROUGH PRAYER, AND AS YOU CAN NEVER BECOME A MEMBER OF A FAMILY BY DOING GENEROUS DEEDS BUT ONLY BY BEING BORN INTO IT OUT OF LOVE. SO YOU CAN NEVER BECOME A CHRISTIAN BY DOING GOOD THINGS ----- BUT ONLY BY BEING BORN TO IT THROUGH DIVINE LOVE. Doing good things to a man does not make you His son (such as what is proposed to us through social justice jargon), but being a son (through Baptism and prayer) does make you do good things.
Christianity begins with being, not with doing, with life and not with action. If you have the life of a man, you will do the things a man does, but if you have the Life of Christ in you, you will act like a self-sacrificing, loving Christian in imitation of Jesus. There is a world of difference between the two. To be a Christian means to discard self as the supreme determinant of actions; it means to put on the mind of Christ so as to be governed by Christ’s Truths; to surrender the will to His Will, and to do all things that are pleasing to Him and not to self.
May we turn to Mary – Our Mother who is so prayerful, so self sacrificing and so loving to all those she meets. She is our model of great virtue and prayer. Let us pray to her in order to live in imitation of her so that we will always be pleasing to God – Her Son.
Today is the feast of the Most Holy Rosary! I have been away for a few days and I can not believe we are already at Oct. 7th. Here is some information for today's feast to help us in our motivation to continue our daily Rosary as Our Lady has asked of us for peace. Our Lady of the Rosary - Queen of Peace - pray for us!
Here are the facts:
The Power of the Rosary
"The most holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or, above all, spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of peoples and nations, that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the holy Rosary. With the holy Rosary, we will save ourselves; we will sanctify ourselves; we will console our Lord, and obtain the salvation of many souls." Conversation between Sr. Lucy of Fatima and Fr. Fuentes, Dec. 26, 1957
"The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin…If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors." Pope Pius XI
"Among all the devotions approved by the Church, none has been so favored by so many miracles as the Rosary devotion." Pope Pius IX
"The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life. It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings. There is no more excellent way of praying." Pope Leo XIII
St. Dominic prayed to Our Lady that she would force the devils who possessed a man to reveal the truth about devotion to Her. The devils were forced by Our Lady to reveal: "Now that we are forced to speak we must also tell you this: Nobody who perseveres in saying the Rosary will be damned, because she obtains for her servants the grace of true contrition for their sins and by means of this they obtain God's forgiveness and mercy."
Some Important Miracles of the Rosary
Of course we know that the Rosary is miraculous. We can see it in our own lives. This should give us great incentive to cling to our Blessed Mother and pray Her Rosary. She will ultimately lead us to Her Son - Her one goal! And finally to our salvation. Below are some very big miracles that should give America hope for "a cleaning of the swamp". We need our Republic back and we pray that Our Lady will help this country come back to God and lawfulness and be a beacon for the rest of the world.
Battle of Lepanto, 1571 - On Sunday, October 7, the Christian and Turkish fleets met in Lepanto Gulf, off the coast of Greece. The bitter battle finished with a brilliant victory of the Christians who where vastly outnumbered. That very evening Pope St. Pius V had at Rome a clear knowledge of this success. The same afternoon, the Confraternities of the Rosary, particularly in Rome, had marched through the streets in procession reciting the Rosary. This victory put an end to the naval power of the Turks and saved Christian Europe. To this day this victory has been attributed to the praying of the Rosary. The feast of “The Most Holy Rosary” is celebrated on October 7 now and the month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary.
Rosary Miracle at Hiroshima - August 6th, 1945 There was a home eight blocks (about 1 kilometer) from where the A-Bomb went off in Hiroshima Japan. This home had a church attached to it which was completely destroyed, but the home survived, and so did the eight German Jesuit missionaries who prayed the rosary in that house faithfully every day. These men were missionaries to the Japanese people, they were non-military, but because Germany and Japan were allies during WWII they were permitted to live and minister within Japan during the war. Not only did they all survive with (at most) relatively minor injuries, but they all lived well past that awful day with no radiation sickness, no loss of hearing, or any other visible long term defects or maladies. Naturally, they were interviewed numerous times (Fr. Schiffer, a survivor, said over 200 times) by scientists and health care people about their remarkable experience and they say "we believe that we survived because we were living the message of Fatima. We lived and prayed the rosary daily in that home." Of course the secular scientists are speechless and incredulous at this explanation - and they are sure there is some "real" explanation - but at the same time over 55 years later the scientists are still absolutely bamboozled when it comes to finding a plausible scenario to explain the missionaries’ unique escape from the hellish power of that bomb.
Russians Pullout of Austria, 1948 - After World War ll, the Allies turned over Catholic Austria to communist Russia. For three years the Austrian people endured this tyranny. Then, a Franciscan priest, Father Petrus, remembered how the Christians although greatly outnumbered had defeated the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto through the Rosary, and he launched a Rosary crusade. Through it 70,000 people, one tenth of the Austrian population, pledged to say the Rosary daily for the Soviets to leave their country. Austria was valuable to the Russians because of its strategic location, rich mineral deposits and oil reserves. Yet on May 13, 1955, the anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, the Russians signed the agreement to leave Austria, and they did so without one person being killed and without one shot being fired. It is the only time that the militant atheistic forces of Marxism have ever peacefully left a country in which they held power. Military strategists and historians are baffled as to why the Russians pulled out. But we are not - it was the power of the Rosary.
The Country That Saved Itself - Brazil 1962 - In 1962 there was a looming threat of communist takeover in Brazil. A woman there named Dona Amelia Bastos was known to have formed a Rosary rally among the Brazilian women there to do their part in opposing the looming threat. Their goal was simply to pray the Rosary in large groups asking the Virgin Mary for help in opposing the Communist takeover which the President of Brazil was leaning toward at the time. In Belo Horizonte 20,000 women reciting the rosary aloud broke up a Communist rally. In Sao Paulo, 600,000 women praying the rosary in one of the most moving demonstrations in Brazilian history, caused the President of Brazil to flee the country and not a single death was encountered, sparing the country from Communist takeover.
HOW WE NEED THE ROSARY TODAY WITH ALL THE ASSAULTS AGAINST OUR CHURCH AND COUNTRY - AND WORLD! Our Lady -pray for us!!
As we know - The Synod starts this Sunday. We have all been hopefully adding prayers and fasts for this day in the history of the Church. There are many presentations being done about this Synod but the underlying horror is -- the culture of death. That in itself should alarm us. This is just like the days of history gone before us where certain world leaders have taken charge and chose to exterminate a certain people -- now we have a more "sophisticated" culture and have to come up with a more "reasonable" reason to lower the population and that will be "climate change". This is the United Nations Agenda. This is what Pope Francis is all about and the reason he was put in fraudulently by the deep state and there is a video below by Michael Voris - people are waking up.
The below presentations should be alarming and should help us to ALL wake up. Please share with those who may not believe or want to believe that we have trouble brewing in the horizon.
Today is First Friday and tomorrow First Saturday - may we offer reparation for these conditions in our Church and in the world. God bless!!
October 3rd is the Feast Day of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face. This saint is known as the “Little Flower” – – this expression is to explain the whole concept of the Carmelite Order as being a garden of prayer for warriors who pray in imitation of Our Lady. Also, in her name she takes “Child Jesus” – her humility, her littleness and unconditional love as a little child are virtues we can all ask Our Blessed Mother for and imitate.
The devotion of the Holy Face is so very powerful and a devotion of Reparation. Little St. Therese was all of these, a humble prayer warrior devoted to reparation!
Below is one of her prayers that she has written that sums up who she really is:
Act of Oblation to Merciful Love
O my God! Most Blessed Trinity, I desire to Love You and make You Loved, to work for the glory of Holy Church by saving souls on earth and liberating those suffering in purgatory. I desire to accomplish Your will perfectly and to reach the degree of glory You have prepared for me in Your Kingdom. I desire, in a word, to be a saint, but I feel my helplessness and I beg You, O my God! To be Yourself my Sanctity! Since You loved me so much as to give me Your only Son as my Savior and my Spouse, the infinite treasures of His merits are mine. I offer them to You with gladness, begging You to look on me only in the Face of Jesus and in His Heart burning with Love.
I offer You, too, all the merits of the saints (in heaven and on earth), their acts of Love, and those of the holy angels. Finally, I offer to You, O Blessed Trinity! the Love and merits of the Blessed Virgin, my dear Mother. It is to her that I abandon my offering, begging her to present it to You. Her Divine Son, my Beloved Spouse, told us in the days of His mortal life: “Whatsoever you ask the Father in My name He will give it to you!” I am certain, then, that You will grant my desires; I know, O my God! that the more You want to give, the more You make us desire. I feel in my heart immense desires and it is with confidence I ask You to come and take possession of my soul. Ah! I cannot receive Holy Communion as often as I desire, but, Lord, are You not all-powerful? Remain in me as in a tabernacle and never separate Yourself from Your little victim.
I want to console You for the ingratitude of the wicked, and I beg of You to take away my freedom to displease You. If through weakness I sometimes fall, may Your Divine Glance cleanse my soul immediately, consuming all my imperfections like the fire that transforms everything into itself. I thank You, O my God! For all the graces You have granted me, especially the grace of making me pass through the crucible of suffering. It is with joy I shall contemplate You on the last day carrying the scepter of Your Cross. Since You deigned to give me a share in this very precious Cross, I hope in heaven to resemble You and to see shining in my glorified body the sacred stigmata of Your Passion.
After earth’s Exile, I hope to go and enjoy You in the Fatherland, but I do not want to lay up merits for heaven. I want to work for Your Love alone with the one purpose of pleasing You, consoling Your Sacred Heart, and saving souls who will love You eternally. In the evening of this life, I shall appear before You with empty hands, for I do not ask You, Lord, to count my works. All our justice is stained in Your eyes. I wish, then, to be clothed in Your own Justice and to receive from Your Love the eternal possession of Yourself. I want no other Throne, no other Crown but You, my Beloved! Time is nothing in Your eyes, and a single day is like a thousand years. You can, then, in one instant prepare me to appear before You.In order to live in one single act of perfect Love, I OFFER MYSELF AS A VICTIM OF HOLOCAUST TO YOUR MERCIFUL LOVE, asking You to consume me incessantly, allowing the waves of infinite tenderness shut up within You to overflow into my soul, and that thus I may become a martyr of Your Love, O my God!
May this martyrdom, after having prepared me to appear before You, finally cause me to die and may my soul take its flight without any delay into the eternal embrace of Your Merciful Love. I want, O my Beloved, at each beat of my heart to renew this offering to You and infinite number of times, until the shadows having disappeared I may be able to tell You of my Love in an Eternal Face to Face! AMEN.
