Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
Blessed Passion Sunday! Passion Sunday is the fifth Sunday of Lent, marking the beginning of Passiontide (two week period to focus on Jesus' Passion before Easter). In 1969, the Vatican removed Passiontide from the liturgical year of the Novus Ordo, but it is still observed in the Extraordinary Form (Traditional Latin Mass). This is one of the changes to de-emphasize the Passion of Jesus by the Novus Ordo innovators of Vatican II. Passion Sunday is now given to Palm Sunday when we read the Passion from the Holy Gospels.
Passiontide is started with a custom of veiling religious images as a way of focusing on the penitential aspect of this liturgical season. The tradition is often practiced during the last two weeks before Easter, starting on Passion Sunday (now called the fifth Sunday of Lent) and ending on Good Friday. It reminds us in a visual way that our faith in all its glory is made possible only through the work of Christ in his suffering and death on the cross. When we cover or remove these holy and sacred images that we are so accustomed to, we focus on the Passion of Jesus...His Sufferings, His Death and then finally when all is unveiled...His Resurrection.
Temporarily veiling the crosses and religious images in the penitential color of Lent is a beautiful custom that helps us to reflect on the deeper theological meaning of the liturgical season. Then, as in a dramatic unveiling, the holy images are again revealed for the Easter Vigil to mark the end of the penitential season. The joy of the Easter season and the hope of the Resurrection then comes to the forefront.

Being that we are beginning Passiontide....talking about the coming famine is appropriate.....
Many Government Leaders around the world are giving a heads-up on the coming famine WHICH HAS BEEN ALLOWED BY GOD BUT PERPETRATED BY THE ELITES TO BRING IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER...BE PREPARED!
This week Mr. B has announced to the United States that there will be food shortages. We may not see much of it just yet but it is slipping away. REMEMBER at the start of this plandemic ..... we were limited on certain items .... WHY? The crisis had just started...how could we have supply chain breaks already?....it was to get us use to the rationing. Food and gas rationing are coming and most likely with a digital system to keep track of it all...this is complete communist control that is all by design....including this war to give justification to all of this mess. (Allowed by God as part of our chastisement for turning away from Him!)
I have included three videos below....there is more for you on the internet to search for yourselves. These two sources are worth watching as they give updates. Please prepare for your families....not sure exactly to what extent....this could be a few years long so .. .how does one prepare for that? We can only do the best we can and pray for God's protection and grace.
God bless all of you and share with those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Have a very very holy Passiontide!!! Keep close to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary!
Our Lady of Fatima ...pray for us!!
