The Entire Success of our Work for God is from the Holy Spirit

The entire success of the Apostolate (the work we do to repent and communicate the Gospel Message of Salvation and the Love of Jesus Christ in dying for our sins) depends on one thing: an interior life lived in daily, mental prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit fueled by the encounter with Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament. It is Mary's role to bring the Holy Spirit, so that Christ may be formed in us; and so the more time we spend with her, especially in the mental part of the prayer of the Rosary, the more we will have the Holy Spirit, His Gifts , His Virtues, His Charisms.  "How much more will the Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?" Now, will it not be more efficacious, if the Mother of God is asking for the Holy Spirit from the Father for us?

Based in a mediation from the "Soul of the Apostolate" by Fr. Jean Baptise Chautard.

THE DIVINE ANTIDOTE

Be at Peace: Why Trust in God, His Church and His Milestones Never Fails

by Anthony Mullen
God has raised up many exemplars of the coming Reign of the Holy Spirit in the world and the New and Divine Holiness, which comes by the power of the Holy Spirit in a second Pentecost. This Reign of the Holy Spirit is brought about by the Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.  God wills to reveal Mary and the role He has given to her as our spiritual Mother and Co-Redemptrix to all the world. God also knows how curious we are as to timing, but He gives no dates.  However, He does give milestones because He wants His people to prepare for this era, and that preparation is PRIMARILY about helping Him save souls and bringing souls back to Him who are open to repentance and conversion.  While it could end at any time, we are still in the time of Mercy; but either way, God wills that we always be at peace.
God is using our correspondence to Grace through our willingness to pray, fast, sacrifice and bear the suffering He sends us in order to convert millions of people.  God wills that we have an intimate relationship with Mary and the Holy Spirit, which will bring us more firmly and quickly to the Heart of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and that is what this special time of Mercy allows, especially through the Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary given to us through Elizabeth Kindelmann for the Church.  If we are not praying to the Holy Spirit every day, especially though mental prayer, and seeking to read about and know Him as a Person, we know we are not responding to the Grace and the times as God intends.
Our Lord promised in the approved works of Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida that the Reign of the Holy Spirit will come to the earth: "On sending the world a new Pentecost, I want the world inflamed, purified and illuminated by the light and fire of the Holy Spirit. The last stage of the world must be marked very especially by the effusion of the Holy Spirit. He must reign in hearts and in the world...Only the Holy Spirit will be able to renew the face of the earth. He will bring light, union and charity to hearts....He will come.  I will send Him again clearly manifest in His effects, which will astonish the world and impel the Church to holiness....Ask, supplicate Heaven, that all may be restored in Me by the Holy Spirit."
St Louis de Montfort head previously made the prophecy that our Mother would bring the Holy Spirit in the latter times. "The formation and education of the great saints to who shall come...are reserved for her. For it is only that singular and miraculous Virgin who can produce, in union with the Holy Spirit, singular and extraordinary things. They shall be great and exalted before God in sanctity, superior to all other creatures by their lively zeal, and so well sustained with God's assistance that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall crush the head of the devil and cause Jesus Christ to triumph."
In terms of milestones, God has given us one to pray for very specifically in our Mother's Messages to Ida Peerdeman at Amsterdam, Holland, which events have been declared by the local Bishop to be of supernatural origin.  Our Lady very clearly states to Ida that her heart can not and will not Triumph, and she will not be allowed by the Father to bring the Holy Spirit, until she has been declared by the Holy Father as a dogma of the Faith: the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all Grace and the Advocate of all the people of God.  Our Lady stated this will occur on a coming May 31, but as is God's way, she did not tell the year.  More importantly, she pleads with us to pray for this Dogma and for the Holy Father faithfully every day.  Our Lady asks us to pray every day, many times a day if possible this prayer. "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your Spirit over the earth.  Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war. May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our advocate."
So, along with the Flame of Love prayers, we must add this prayer of Our Lady of All Nations. If we obey, we will experience great peace. Worry is completely useless. God's  Will and His timing are perfect.  When we see the final Marian Dogma proclaimed by the Holy Father, we will know we have reached a key milestone and are proceeding toward the Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart and the Reign of the Holy Spirit. Only God knows when, but He gives us milestones to quell our curiosity and to be at peace, but only if we obey.  Let us obey and bring the Flame of Love Grace and the Our Lady of All Nations Prayer to all in our sphere of influence.  Let us act!  Love and Souls!  Love and Souls! Love and Souls!

THE ABOMINABLE "A" WORD

Luke 1:15

"For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and he will drink no wine or liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother's womb."
"Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them."
.
"I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,"
~*~

Have you guessed yet as to the topic of this writing? Yes, it is that most horrid act of murder ever - that being the abortion of one's child. I am going to post a couple of photographs of aborted babies, so be warned if you wish not to see them.

There are a great many verses in The Holy Bible regarding man's creation and life. These are three of the many. In Luke 1:15, "and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit yet in his mother's womb."  How very powerful that statement is! If we are told that we were filled with The Holy Spirit even when we were in our mother's womb, does that not mean that we are a new life? We are living beings, not yet with arms or legs, but an embryo fertilized and beginning its growth in the mother's womb is still LIVING! It is growing and sustaining through its umbilical cord attached to the mother, getting it's blood, nutrition and oxygen from her.

Psalm 139:16 states that the Lord has seen the "unformed substance". This is, to me, a witnessing that God has seen one in its mother's womb and has already written its life into its own Book of Life before it is even born! God knew us before were were even born, even before we were created between a man and a woman. If God knew us and by His power caused the egg in the woman's womb to accept its fertilization, that baby IS a living thing! Just as you plant a seed, care for it, water it, and fertize it, you have helped God to create something that is alive. If it were not alive, it would not continue to grow, but would wither away into the dust.

And the third verse from Dueteronomy is the most powerful. God asks us to choose life so that we may also live. This verse can be interpreted in many ways

All three verses cause a pit in my belly because of the endless murdering and mutilation of the unborn. There are thousands of babies aborted every day. Don't believe it when you are told that it is not murder because IT IS!

In my mind, the most complicated and beautiful creation God has ever made is the human life. God had to love his creation from the beginning; until Eve talked Adam into eating fruit from the Forbidden Tree.  Nevertheless, God created humanity beginning with using of the dust on the ground to create man.  

From the moment the egg is fertilized, it becomes a living being. The growth of a child in a woman's women is the greatest of miracles. So, why do people treat it so carelessly? It is a matter of choosing between life and death, not just of the fetus, but also your own life.

It is baffling to me that in this day and age, that even a young teen might become pregnant. Parents teach, or should teach, abstinence. But of course, there are those who will not listen or conduct themselves in what has become "prudish" (sadly) to Just Say No!!

Then there are adults who especially should know better than to take that chance. There are condoms of many different sizes and colors (am I selling you a blouse???) that can help prevent pregnancy.  If you don't have the money, go to the Health Department and get on "the pill" to prevent pregnancy. And should you become pregnant anyway, it's a no brainer that you must carry this child until it is born. After that, you may leave the baby for adoption into a good home, or keep it! Isn't that a marvel idea?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, this single sin causes me much emotion and torments my mind. To think that as I sit here writing this, a woman is MURDERING her child. There are literally thousands of couples who cannot conceive and would love to adopt your baby. Then you will have saved your salvation by no commiting murder, and you can confess your unchaste behavior and be forgiven and not commit the sin again. But to abort a tiny baby that you conceived through your own bad choices, is yours and it is up to you what you will do. It is not a stigma that it used to be to see pregnant teens in the hallways at school. What matters most is what you choose to do about the baby. 

Please, please, avoid committing an ultimate sin and kill your child in your womb because you got all hot and had sex willingly, thereby becoming pregnant. There is a better choice for you. 

I will be perfectly honest with you. I conceived a child at the age of 17. We married and I was in love with love. It wasn't long before the young man hit me for the first time, and then shoved me into a window, breaking it, when I was in my 8th month. When you are at that age, you do not know enough about the world to know what to do. All you know is that you have this baby and the father comes and goes as he pleases and over the course of three years, he left and came back numerous times, AND he abused me several times. I don't need pity and it is difficult to tell you this, but if it helps one woman, it is worth it! I came from a good home, strict parents who loved me, but this guy was so doggone handsome and we began dating and one thing led to another, and you know what happened. I guess I felt lucky at the time, but I paid dearly for one bad choice.

By the way, our marriage lasted less than three years, and I KEPT MY BABY! I was single for the next six years. I am a convert to Catholicism, but my parents were pentecostal and abortion was not an option. I thought I was so grown up and then the baby was growing and it was so hard being a young mother with a wild husband. BUT I KEPT MY BABY! I keep saying that so you know that there are good choices afterall. Keep your baby, and let some nice couple who pray for a child adopt yours.  My baby is now 45 years old and my pride in her overflows. She has an awesome husband she met in church. She has three children and has dedicated herself to raising her children. She once told me, "I don't care if my house is messy or whatever, I'm not missing one moment with my children to mop a floor!" Her oldest is my only granddaughter and she is graduating from High School this year. She is so level headed and strikingly beautiful. She has already been accepted into college. So I feel that just our relationship is the best I could ever imagine.

There's always an option; MURDER is not one of them.

ST. PEREGRINE NOVENA FOR CANCER PATIENTS - DAY 1

Peace be with you!
Today is the first day of the Saint Peregrine Novena for Cancer Patients!

Saint Peregrine suffered with cancer on his leg and he was told it needed to be amputated. So St. Peregrine turned to the cross and prayed. He did not allow his illness to bring him to despair, but rather it brought him closer to the cross, even through his suffering.

So today, let's pray for all cancer patients -- that their illness will not bring them to despair.

MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS

Dearest Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,

I have drifted away from the monthly apparitions, the ones I feel most credible and in which I can relate, are those of Mirjana Soldo. Her apparitions fall on the 2nd day of each month. I am posting below her last two messages.


Our lady is very stressed and urgent. People seem to be drifting from her Son, Jesus. Her Apostles are waning and I'm afraid that I am one of them.  Not on purpose; I just dried up. I was out of town for the Christmas holidays and find my poor daddy is haing some serious problems. My mother is a stroke victim and helpless to help him. I thank God Almighty for the lady who is so devoted to my folks and keeps watch over them.


Then I had health issues come up with the change in weaather and I have not been myself. I pray unceasingly, for there is much that needs prayer, but I have not been able to find the words I seek to impart that will bring you closer to Jesus. I am invoking the Holy Spirit without ceasing. I need Him to give me the words. Perhaps I will catch up with Him with some extra effort.


I urge you to read the apparitions of Our Lady from December 2, 2016, and January 2, 2017. Heed her worry, her need which is our need, be the Apostle that she specifically called you and me to be.


God bless you all,

ABBEY

Our Lady's Message through Mirjana Soldo
December 2, 2016

Dear children, my motherly heart is crying as I am looking at what my children are doing. Sins are multiplying, the purity of soul is all the less important; my Son is being forgotten - honored all the less; and my children are being persecuted. That is why, you my children, apostles of my love, with soul and heart invoke the name of my Son. He will have the words of light for you. He manifests Himself to you, He breaks the bread with you and gives you the words of love so that you may transform them into merciful acts and, thus, be witnesses of truth. That is why, my children, do not be afraid. Permit my Son to be in you. He will make use of you to care for the wounded and to convert lost souls. Therefore, my children, return to the prayer of the Rosary. Pray it with feelings of goodness, sacrifice and mercy. Pray, not only with words, but with merciful acts. Pray with love for all people. My Son, by His sacrifice, exalted love. Therefore, live with Him so that you may have strength and hope; that you may have the love which is life and which leads to eternal life. Through God's love, I am also with you, and will lead you with motherly love. Thank you. 


Our Lady's Message through Mirjana Soldo
January 2, 2017

Dear children, My Son was the source of love and light when he spoke on earth to the people of all peoples. My apostles, follow His light. This is not easy. You must be little. You must make yourselves smaller than others; with the help of faith to be filled with His love. Not a single person on earth can experience a miraculous experience without faith. I am with you. I am making myself known to you by these comings, by these words; I desire to witness to you my love and motherly care. My children, do not waste time posing questions to which you never receive an answer. At the end of your journey on earth, the Heavenly Father will give them to you. Always know that God knows everything; God sees, God loves. My most beloved Son illuminates lives, dispels darkness; and my motherly love which carries me to you is inexpressible, mysterious but real. I am expressing my feelings to you: love, understanding and motherly benevolence. Of you, my apostles, I am asking for your roses of prayer which need to be acts of love. To my motherly heart these are the dearest prayers. I offer these to my Son who was born for your sake. He looks at you and hears you. We are always close to you. This is the love which calls, unites, converts, encourages and fulfills. Therefore, my apostles, always love one another and above all, love my Son. This is the only way to salvation, to eternal life. This is my dearest prayer which fills my heart with the most beautiful scent of roses. Pray, always pray for your shepherds that they may have the strength to be the light of my Son. Thank you.

BAPTISM OF JESUS

I chose the following scripture because I had never actually read it, but I was able to extrapolate a greater understanding of how Jesus became known, about the name Yaweh, and how great his stature was on earth and is in heaven. 
~*~
John the Baptist’s Testimony to Jesus.
29The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.30He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’
31I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel.”32John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky and remain upon him.33I did not know him,but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the holy Spirit.’34Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”
~*~
Where to begin with this reading?  Close your eyes and try to imagine yourself in the clothing of the time, standing with other men and women on the shore, waiting your turn to be baptized by John the Baptist. But wait, there is a man approaching and he's coming all alone.
John sees him and stops to immediately identify the man to the waiting crowd of people. 

'
A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ 
Image result for jesus being baptized by john the baptistIt was divine intervention that John the Baptist knew on sight the identity of the man. Deciphering the above quote of John, "coming after me", he has always existed, for he is the Divine Human form of God, himself, "who ranks ahead of me", means he is the most nobel Son of God, "because he existed before me", the man existed in the heaven  because he was God in heaven before he came down and became flesh.` 
He readily admits that he did not know the man, but had been told (by whom? The Holy Spirit, of course!) John the Baptist has been informed of who this man is and that by his, John's, baptizing of Jesus, it would make all of Israel know him.
 They go through the baptism of Jesus, but not before The Holy Spirit comes down from heaven and rests on Jesus, which was the confirmation. THEN he was baptized. 
"Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”
Imagine yourself standing there on the shore by a fig tree, witnessing the baptism and introduction of the "Son of God" for the first time. What an amazing thing to witness. I would be dumbstruck and probably find it impossible to move away from Jesus.
People for years had heard that there would be a Messiah coming forth from the heavens, and that people will see angels in the hundreds come down from heaven. Please note tha this has yet to occur and will occur during the second coming.
This is so POWERFUL! How do you go on as you had before? At least one man became his first Disciple. To drop everything and know that you should follow Jesus is also a very powerful thing. This is where Jesus began to take on his Disciples, telling them to drop everything, to bring nothing with them, some being a little doubtful, yet they followed. In time, they would witness his sermons with awe, they would witness the healing of people everywhere he went and this evidenced that he was, indeed, the Son of God.
You've left everything to follow the Son of God. And soon you learn that name is Yahweh. As written in Philipians 2:9-11, Yahweh is a name above all others on earth and in heaven. People followed him everywhere, and the crowds following were growing.  To me, Jesus had a charismatic essence. God and salvation is what he preached. And he was quite clever at building parables that touched you to the point that you could not forget them, you contemplated them. People longed to hear all he had to say, to be a part of Yahweh every day, no matter where he went. His sermons engaged you to the point that you knew, you BELIEVED, this was the Son of God!
Philippians 2:9-11
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
What about understanding his name?  To see just how breathtaking this statement really is, we must understand what Paul, as the author, had in mind. He is quoting the LORD speaking through the Prophet Isaiah:
"Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
 a word that shall not return: "To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance." Only in the LORD, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed
 all who were incensed against him, and the LORD all the offspring of Israel 
shall be justified and shall glory"
We are given a quite honest command regarding the Son of God. But as we know, the only path to heaven is through God's Son, Jesus Christ. This is your first priority, and because we are all sinners, this is whom we profess our allegiance and trust Him with our deepest agony at confessing our sins in prayer.  When we finish, we feel renewed, calm, and like out tank has been relieved of its emptiness and is now refueled. Continue on the path you are on with Jesus. He IS the source of YOUR salvation. He died FOR YOU. He suffered a horrendous scourging and hanging on the cross with nails in his hands and feet. He hung there until he died. The entire time he hung on the cross, deep, dark clouds hovered all the area. They were so dark that it was almost like the night.
Living for Jesus, knowing without any doubt that he is with you and will watch over you, it is something so soft because your whole life, the weight of your problems are lifted if you just free yourself by giving your worries to Jesus. I want that for every person in this world, and I began posting on Twitter for the purpose of winning souls for Jesus! Indeed, it is a labor of extreme love!
Lovingly for you in the name of Jesus Christ,
ABBEY

THE SOLEMNITY OF MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

"Dear brothers and sisters, let us today contemplate Mary, ever-virgin Mother of the Only-Begotten Son of the Father; let us learn from her to welcome the Child who was born for us in Bethlehem…”

  -Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (January 1, 2008)


Happy Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God! May you and your family have a blessed day.
