We are almost at the end of our study and prayer for our Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. I have been listening to The Passion and Death of Jesus given to us by Anne Catherine Emmerich on CD. The details of His death are so HORRIFIC - I have always tried to do the Way of the Cross all of my life by trying to understand the intensity of His sufferings for us. IT IS SO VERY SAD and so HORRIFIC. When I was young and more naive than I am now - I could not understand why it was so horrific. I am beginning to understand now. We all know that the mystery of suffering is to repair for sin. Jesus suffered for all the sins of the world - and as we grow older and see so much sin before us we can get a glimpse of why - it is HORRIFIC.
I know my title seems out of place for speaking about the Passion of Jesus but not really. The sins of the world as Our Lady of Fatima came to warn us would lead to world wide errors from Russia (If we did not have Russia consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart and if people continued to offend God and if they did not pray the Rosary). Looks like we struck out on all three and now we may be facing worldwide Communism.
Someone sent me a link from LifeSite News regarding a letter that a father writes to his children regarding the horrifying state of sin in the world - (Link below). I read this thinking that my children have heard all of this and I do not think it would WAKE THEM UP. I began to think - WHAT WOULD?
I pulled a few books off my shelf in my library. I have a book titled - "When a Nation Forgets God" by Erwin W. Lutzer. It is about what Germany looked like before Hitler came on the scene. WE ARE THERE! It is 141 pages - an easy read. EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ IT. Also, regarding the state of America, there is a book titled, "None Dare Call it Treason". It is about the changing of America that has gone on for decades yet ---- None - dare call it treason!! We see it in Washington now and still --- none - dare call it treason!
I also have two videos below. One is new from Dave Hodges - Common Sense Show about how the enemy has entered in and we are now in present danger in America. Also, there is a video from Bishop Sheen regarding communism. (This is one reason why he will never be canonized - he spoke against communism which the Vatican stands with now through the UN and Agenda 2030)
What can we do? We can teach our children the truth - pray that they may wake up and pray the Rosary daily with your families. Consecrate yourselves and your family to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Remember -- She said that in the end Her Immaculate would triumph. Keep Catholic. Keep to the Sacraments. Stay close to the cross of Christ and to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. God is in control. It is an exciting time to live and bear witness for Christ! Who knows - we may be blessed to be martyrs for the Faith! ( If we are - may we remember that the next life is eternal so do not be afraid and embrace your cross in imitation of our sweet, suffering Jesus!)
God bless and may Our Blessed Mother watch over and protect us!
