Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
So sorry everyone for being away from postings! Happy Feast Day! I am finally just 3 days away from completely moving to our new residence. I am so grateful to God that we decided to do this now because my husband and I are not getting younger!
One of the reasons I wanted to move to a secluded area is to finally give myself more completely to prayer. I have had a busy life and sneaking in prayer time is the only thing that gave me strength through all of it.... but I always wanted more.
We drove up yesterday in two separate cars with the last of our items and I prayed during the three hour trip...and cried....not because I was moving but because the previous chapter in my life that is now closing seems to be greatly attacked by Satan. My children bring me to tears. I thought... I could stay closer to them...they have needs. It suddenly came to me that it was the feast day of St. Jane de Chantal. She was a mother who left to be a contemplative and I suddenly knew this is where God wants me now. He wants prayer. (I once wanted to be a Visitation (which she co-founded with St. Francis de Sales) before marriage...so this hit me even harder!)
Well - finally to our title....I went looking for a video to share with my adult children on Our Lady for this day as they too live busy lives. In today's world, if one does not pray or turn to Mary.... it is easy to just completely give up on God....
The video below is a message for all of us. I found it very good for myself as I want to help spread the "Church's best kept secret - Mary". These youngsters are awesome! I hardly ever say the word awesome; but I am so very thrilled to see the Holy Spirit alive in these youths. Please listen to it once and then go back to it another time because what they have to say is GREATLY needed.
I hope you enjoy the video. May the Reign of the Immaculate Heart come....May She send forth the graces of Her Flame of Love to all of mankind!
