St. Therese of Lisieux Novena - 9/22 - 9/30

St Therese of Lisieux
Join us in the novena to St. Therese of Lisieux! Also known as St. Therese of the Child Jesus, she is a doctor of the Church and Pope Pius X called her the “greatest saint of modern times.” Needless to say, she is a most powerful intercessor and she is beloved by many who seek her help.

9-11 ... The Atrocity

This is a poem that just flowed out of me hours after the 2nd plane hit :-(



THE ATROCITY

when all is at peace .. when all is at rest
perhaps that's the time we are put to the test
relaxing and breezing thru daily routine
smiling and laughing ~ calm and serene.
you see it coming; there's no where to go
the crash and the burn and the blood starts to flow
the smoke and the screams ... the terror begins
the stench and the rubble .. the crashing of tin.
others are watching, gasping in fright
then another crash comes and now they're in the plight.
try to get out! but they're up oh so high!
they rush and they push ... but they're going to die.
those that can walk, they flee to the stairs ......
but the smoke! ... the debris! ... and the fire still flares!
the structure is shifting; the flames eat its skin ....
all minds fill with horror and thoughts of their kin.
I'VE GOT TO GET OUT! IS THE EXIT NEARBY??
I'VE TOO MUCH TO LIVE FOR, I'M TOO YOUNG TO DIE!
the tremor is felt as the buildings collapse ...
the two mighty towers ..... merely deathtraps!
the onlookers watch; frozen with fear
the rescuers come ..... but all is not CLEAR!!!!!
this horror will claim more innocents yet!
this terror a day surely NONE WILL FORGET.

Immaculate Conception

“We declare, we pronounce, and we define that the doctrine which holds that the most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by Almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful.”


The 8th of December is an important day - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It is also the day on which in 1947 Our Blessed Mother gave us the Hour of Grace.

Our Lady said as follows when she appeared to Sister Pierina in a little church in Montichiari, Italy: "It is my wish that every year, on 8th December, at noon, the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be celebrated. Many divine and bodily graces will be received through this devotion. Our Lord, my Divine Son Jesus, will send His overflowing mercy if good people will pray continuously for their sinful brother.... it is my wish that the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be made known and spread throughout the world. If anyone is unable to visit his church, yet will pray at home, he will also receive graces through me.... will find a secure heavenly ladder and receive protection and grace through my motherly heart."






THE REQUEST OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER FOR THE HOUR OF GRACE:

Our Lady promised she will hear any prayer we make at this time.

1. Day and time of the Hour of Grace: December 8th, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, to be started at 12:00 noon and continuing until 1:00 p.m. for one full hour of prayer.

2. During this hour, the person making the Hour of Grace either at home or at church must put away all distractions (do not answer the telephones, or answer any doors, or do anything but totally concentrate on your union with God during this special Hour of Grace).

3. Begin the Hour of Grace by praying three times the 51st Psalm with out-stretched arms. (Psalm 51 appears below).

4. The rest of the Hour of Grace may be spent in silent communication with God meditating upon the Passion of Jesus, saying the Holy Rosary, praising God in your own way, or by using favourite prayers, singing hymns, meditating upon other psalms, etc.



Psalm 51

1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing Love; according to Your great Compassion blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your Sight; so You are right in Your verdict and justified when You judge.
5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
6 Yet You desired faithfulness even in the womb; You taught me wisdom in that secret place.
7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice.
9 Hide Your Face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.
10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from Your Presence or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your Salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your Ways, so that sinners will turn back to You.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, You who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of Your righteousness.
15 Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare Your praise.
16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart You, God, will not despise.
18 May it please You to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in burnt offerings offered whole; then bulls will be offered on Your altar.

The Queenship & Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary August 22

Since Our Lady’s whole life was a life of her Heart, the Immaculate Heart represents her life, her love, herself. From the moment of Conception, Mary offered acts of faith, hope, love, praise, adoration, thanksgiving to the God who created her. Her one ambition was union with God, her desire to do His will; the light of grace found no obstacle in her pure soul. Her immaculate Heart was the throne of all virtue. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the complement of devotion to the Sacred Heart; in the one we honor Christ, the Redeemer; in the other, Mary, co-redemptrix. Thus we honor Christ's mother with the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

God was so pleased with His Masterpiece of creation, Mary, that He willed to be born of her pure flesh and blood. By giving her consent, Mary became the channel through which Christ came to men; and this channel is the surest way to lead us back to God. It was Mary’s love for man, joined with and flowing from her love of God, that made her utter her “Fiat” – that Fiat meant consent to the Incarnation and to the Redemption. So also the Salvation of the world depends on Mary.

Among Our Lady’s urgent requests at Fatima was the plea for devotion and consecration to her Immaculate Heart – our devotion to Mary is neither complete nor true, unless we are willing to give ourselves over to the object of our love; true devotion culminates in dedication or consecration. Consecration consists in an act, by which we promise Our Lady not only everything we possess, but our very selves as well; and this, not for a time, but forever; secondly, it is a state whereby we recognize God’s sovereign dominion by acknowledging Christ as our King, and Our Lady as our Queen, pledging them complete service and devotion.

Our consecration, then, must be more than a well-written prayer, recited and then forgotten; it must be a vital, living state in which we recognize the importance of habitually belonging to Our Lady; to be fruitful it must inspire imitation. We must try to reshape our lives according to Our Lady’s, setting up a whole new pattern, studied at her feet, learned from the Rosary mysteries and modeled after her own Immaculate Heart.

To consecrate means to remove from the profane and set apart as sacred; renouncing self-love; doing all in union with and for our Heavenly Queen; removing sin and all obstacles to perfect union of heart with hers. If we do this, Mary will teach us all virtue and the way that will lead us to God. If men become slaves to an art which ends with death, should we not become slaves of Mary, the music of whose Heart will sing out for all Eternity?

Love will prompt this total submission, solid love of the will, ending in imitation and surrender. Our love for Mary must be so
intense that we chain our hearts to hers by golden links of love, stronger than any base metal of earth; Mary will then govern our thoughts, words, deeds. Our life will have but one purpose – God’s glory. Our hearts will yearn only for her interests and her honor – which is God’s honor, too; all her intentions and dispositions will become ours. Her humility will replace our pride; her purity efface our impurity; her selflessness, wipe out our self-love; and all her virtues replace our sins. From her we will learn the meaning of prayer, mortification, and penance. Resting close to her Immaculate Heart, our own cold hears will become enkindled with the Divine Fire and grow ablaze with her burning love.
Our lives thus surrendered to her can become like that of the angels, one continual song of praise; our hearts annihilated and lost within the sanctuary of her Immaculate Heart, will be able to sing truly, “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”
The Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Memorial of the Queenship of Mary
HippetsweilerKapelleGemaldeMarienkronungCoronationOfMaryQueenshipVirgin
In 1954, Venerable Pope Pius XII formally promulgated the memorial of the Queenship of Mary with his encyclical Ad Caeli Reginam (Queen of Heaven). It was initially celebrated on May 31st but subsequently transferred to August 22nd, seven days after the Solemnity of the Assumption. In this encyclical, Pope Pius set down in writing what had long been part of our Catholic faith: that Mary is Queen, as seen in Scripture and the ancient Tradition of the Church, especially because of the words of the Archangel, who announced her royal position to her at the Annunciation. St. Gabriel foretold that her Son would reign forever (cf Luke 1:33). As well, St. Elizabeth’s words to Mary at the Visitation confirmed her as “Mother of my Lord” (cf Luke 1:43), the form of address for the mother of a king in the 1st century. And, the mother of a king is, of course, the queen mother.
Dr. Edward Sri brings out the subtle scriptural allusion to Mary as Queen in Matthew 2:11:
“All throughout the narrative in Matthew 1–2, Joseph is much more prominent than Mary. Matthew traces
Jesus’ genealogy through Joseph. The angel appears to Joseph three times. It is Joseph who leads the Holy Family to Bethlehem, to Egypt, and back to Israel. From this we can see Joseph often takes the spotlight in the first few scenes of Matthew’s Gospel. However, in this particular episode when the Magi come to honor Jesus, Mary takes center stage and Joseph fades into the background. Why? Because it shows the importance of Mary as queen mother.”*
In addition to the Gospel references above, and the Old Testament prophecy of the virgin from whom would come a royal son (cf Isaiah 7), we know that the Blessed Mother is full of grace (cf Luke 1:28) and that nothing unclean may enter heaven (Revelation 21:27). Therefore, it’s no surprise, that Mary makes an appearance in Revelation 12 as Queen, as the woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and, on her head, a crown of twelve stars (cf Revelation 12:1).
All who call her Queen and Lady express the consent of faith to this teaching. And, Pope Pius XII wrote that:
“…it is easily concluded that she is a Queen, since she bore a son who, at the very moment of His conception, because of the hypostatic union of the human nature with the Word, was also as man King and Lord of all things. So with complete justice St. John Damascene could write: ‘When she became Mother of the Creator, she truly became Queen of every creature.'”
The Blessed Virgin Mary has been celebrated and honored as Queen from the earliest history of the Church. Every honor and devotion we give to her “redounds to the glory of her Divine Son, not only because all graces and all gifts, even the highest, flow from Him as from their primary source, but also because ‘The glory of children [is their parentage]’ (Book of Proverbs, 17:6)” (Fulgens Corona Radiant Crown).
This year, in particular, it is interesting to reflect on Mary’s title “Mother of Mercy” (or “Queen of Mercy”).  We hear her called that in various Church prayers.  Although she has the title “Mirror of Justice” which we address her by in the Litany of Loreto, St. Alphonsus Liguori, in his famous treatise The Glories of Mary, points out that she is never called the Mother of Justice.  “Mary, then, is Queen,” he writes, “but let all learn for their consolation that she is a mild and merciful Queen, desiring the good of all sinners… Kings… should principally occupy themselves with works of mercy, but they should not neglect the exercise of justice toward the guilty when it is required. But Mary is not a queen of justice, intent on the punishment of the guilty, but rather a Queen of Mercy, intent only on compassion and pardon for sinners. Accordingly, the Church calls her Queen of Mercy.”
So, let us invoke our Blessed Mother this day, frequently, just as is done in the beautiful prayer said at the end of the rosary, and sung often after Compline, or Night Prayer, in the Liturgy of the Hours, “Hail, Holy Queen.” “Salve Regina!”

PLEASE ... PRAY FERVENTLY THAT OUR LADY'S IMMACULATE HEART TRIUMPHS BY THE MILLENNIAL OF FATIMA & THAT ALL BE SAVED & NONE BE LOST!

THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

The Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary on August 15 has been a part of Christian faith-tradition from the earliest centuries. This feast emphasizes the universal dimensions of Mary’s role in God’s plan of salvation. We do not celebrate her exaltation in the sense of a removal from us, but as the fulfillment of what we all are called to be.

In 1950, Pope Pius XII defined Mary's Assumption into heaven as a dogma of Roman Catholicism: "the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heaven." The proclamation of this dogma was made in the encyclical: Munificentissimus Deus. After entering heaven, Mary has remained active in the life of the Church.

This feast of Mary celebrates a special privilege of Mary, our Mother. The Assumption means that she entered into the glory of heaven not only with her soul, but also with her body. The Son of God took His Body from Mary's pure womb. It was fitting, then, that her body should be glorified as soon as her life here on earth was ended.

Now Mary is in heaven. She is Queen of heaven and earth. She is the Mother of Jesus' Church and Queen of apostles. Every time Mary asks Jesus to give us graces, He listens to her request.

After the resurrection from the dead, we, too, can go to heaven with our bodies. If we use our bodies now to do good, those  bodies will share in our heavenly reward.

After the resurrection, our bodies will be perfect. They will not be subject to illness anymore. They will not need any more food and drink to keep alive. They will be able to go every place without time or effort. They will be beautiful and splendid!

Although this year, 2016, We are not obligated to attend Mass on her feast day, let us not forget our dear Mother!! And still go to Mass if you can or at least watch it on TV or Internet for those that are house bound .... and PLEASE don't forget to pray your ROSARY!



"Thank you Most Pure Mother for soiling your feet on the earth again and again to bring us Jesus and to lead us to Jesus. I praise your love and mercy that flows to us through your Flame of Love directly from the Source of Divine Mercy. I thank you for never giving up on us. Lead all souls to heaven, Beloved Mother, especially those God has given us to pray for, and especially those most in need of God's mercy. Amen." ~Janet Klasson


DAILY ROSARIES PLEASE!!!!
(Along with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy & the Chaplet of Unity)
The door of MERCY will soon close! Only a few months left! Don't neglect to pray for your friends and relatives that have turned lukewarm or left the Faith! Mercy will soon be over and then comes JUDGEMENT. Do you think that the centennial of Fatima, the locution that Pope Leo had, this Jubilee Year of Mercy are coincidental? God put us in this place in history for a REASON. We BEST get crackin' on the main objective which is still the same as it has been always ..... " LEAD ALL SOULS TO HEAVEN"!!!!
PLEASE! Pray for the martyrs in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, India, the Ukraine and all Muslim and Communist countries!

Recite on the ten small beads of each of the five decades:

St. Michael, great prince and guardian of your people, come with the holy angels and saints and protect us!

PROMISES

Jesus spoke these words and promises to His servant's spiritual mother concerning the Chaplet of Unity:

"Pray this Chaplet of Unity under My Sovereign Kingship to the Father in My Name, as Jesus, King of All Nations. Through My
Mother's prayerful mediation and intercession to Me, I will ask the Father to pour out with abundant newness and to magnify the anointing power of the Holy Spirit upon My Church under the Holy Father, upon nations of all peoples, and upon all individual souls whom I love. This Chaplet will be a special fountain, whereby souls can come to refresh and renew themselves and to drink from the waters of My Merciful Healing Love which I will pour out on them as they pray."

"Pray My Chaplet of Unity for the suffering souls in Purgatory. They especially need the healing of My merciful graces for they cannot pray for themselves. Many will be progressively healed and I tell you multitudes released!"

"I promise to give this Chaplet of Unity great power over My wounded Sacred Heart when prayed with faith and confidence to heal the brokenness of My people's lives caused by so much sin, selfishness, error, division and disunity. Pray this Chaplet for repentance and forgiveness to open and reconcile your hearts to Mine, that you may receive My Word, and act upon My Will for you. Confession, Confession, Confession, My children! Confess your sins to Me through My priests that I may cover you with My Mercy. Pray this Chaplet that a renewal of your hearts and minds by the Holy Spirit will lead to a daily conversion in Faith, Peace, Love, and Joy within your souls.
I promise you 'My Peace, My Divine Presence within your souls,' which the worldly-minded cannot and does not understand! My Peace knows no bounds or limits! By imploring Me in this manner, you will turn away from sin and its destructive effects, and toward a continual greater and greater abundance of graces from Me in My Mercy."


"Yes, in this devotion to Me as Jesus, King of All Nations, entreat My Kingly Heart with the prayer of this Chaplet of Unity that I Myself, your sovereign Lord Jesus Christ, have given you! Pray and ask for the spiritual wholeness and healing of your own souls, for the union of your own will with God's Will, for the healing of your families, friends, enemies, relationships, Religious Orders, communities (of all kinds), countries, nations, the world, and unity within My Church under the Holy Father! I shall grant many spiritual, physical, emotional, and psychological healings for those who pray this prayer if it is beneficial to their salvation according to My Most Holy Will! Unity and oneness in Spirit was My own prayer for all mankind and My Church as My own last testament before I gave My life as Savior of all mankind! As I Am one with My Father and the Holy Spirit, My Will is that all mankind be one in Me, so that one Faith, one Fold, and one Shepherd will be gathered together under My Sovereign Kingship as LORD."

"Yes, My beloved, by praying this Chaplet I have had you labor for, and have taught you, you will replace My great sorrow with Infinite JOY! Your life imitates My Mother who labors in My Grace by the power of the Holy Spirit to form, give birth, mature, help, reconcile and mediate to Me, your God, souls and nations of souls, to obtain the extension of My Reign in the hearts of My people, and thus I shall unite all mankind, even unto the end of time, under My Divine Reign of Kingship. Those special souls who honor Me in this devotion will do the same, and to them I promise to grant My Kingly Blessings!"

"I, Jesus, Son of the Most High God, Who AM Sovereign LORD, promise to hold out to the souls who pray My Chaplet of Unity the Scepter of My Kingship and grant them mercy, pardon, and protection in times of severe weather and plagues. I extend this promise not only for yourselves, but also for individuals for whom you pray. No, My beloved, sin and the evils committed by mankind are too great. No longer will I spare My judgment to correct the conscience of mankind as a whole. But this devotion and Chaplet prayed with repentance, confidence, and love, will heal, save, and unite souls to My Mercy who otherwise would be lost. Any harm or danger, spiritual or physical, whether it be to soul, mind, or body, will I protect these souls against, and clothe them over with My own mantle of Kingly Mercy. To this I add the promise of the assistance of My Most Holy Mother's mediation on their behalf. Even if you die, you shall not be lost, for you shall know salvation and union with Me in the Kingdom of My Father where we reign with the Holy Spirit, eternally the Divine Trinity, One God."

"Behold, I will close their wounds and give them health, and reveal to them the prayer of peace and truth" (Jer 33:6).

The Novena of Chaplets of Unity
Jesus told His servant's spiritual mother, "Make a Novena to Me of the Chaplet of Unity and I will powerfully and expediently answer your prayers according to My Sovereign and Most Holy Will!"

The faithful can accomplish this by choosing to repeat praying the Chaplet of Unity nine (9) times in succession. This can be done at one time, hourly or daily. "For the measure you measure with will be measured back to you"
(Lk 6:38).

OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL

On July 16, the Church celebrates on the feast of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel which is symbolized by the brown scapular. The scapular, which derives its name from the Latin word scapula, meaning shoulders, is a dress which covers the shoulders. It is mentioned in the rule of Saint Benedict as worn by monks over their other dress when they were at work, and it now forms a regular part of the religious dress in the old Orders. But it is best known among Catholics as the name of two little pieces of cloth worn out of devotion to the Blessed Virgin over the shoulders, under the ordinary garb, and connected by strings. The devotion of the scapular, now almost universal in the Catholic Church, began with the Carmelites.

Our Lady promises to be a spiritual mother to those who wear the scapular. She even promises the gift of final perseverance to all who wear her sign with genuine faith in Jesus and in her powerful protection. At the hour of death, she will grant the wearer the grace to repent completely.
