Celebrating the Feast of the Espousal of Mary and Joseph, 2017

Dear Fellow Devotees of Our Lady,

Today, January 23, 2017, marks the great feast of the espousal of Mary and Joseph.  In addition to all of the traditional ways of marking the celebration of a great Catholic Holy Day, such as participating in the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, receiving our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, cleansing our souls in the marvelous Sacrament of Penance, if necessary (then again, when is it not necessary?!), renewing our total consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – in the spirit of St. Joseph, praying the most efficacious of all prayers – the most holy Rosary of our Lady…

In addition to all of these marvelous suggestions, let us additionally resolve to engage in some holy activity that will bear a great witness to the world of our deep love for and absolute commitment to not only our Lord and our Lady, but also to the marvelous and much derided truths of our holy faith, particularly those truths pertaining to the sanctity of the institution and Sacrament of Marriage as a holy and blessed union between one man and one woman.

This, my friends, we can do by resolving to commit ourselves to accepting an invitation from America Needs Fatima to organize a Rosary Rally in support of the true meaning of marriage.  I received the following invitation this morning, and I would like to pass it along to you, the reader.  I ask you to open your heart to this marvelous invitation by responding with as much generosity as the Lord moves you to.

May our Lord and our Lady bless you with every spiritual blessing under the heavens for your deep fidelity to and love for the holy truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

In the United Hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Jayson M. Brunelle, M.Ed., CAGS

Dear Mr. Brunelle,
     It is a war.
    There are those doing everything to destroy marriage and the family and those defending it and standing up for it no matter what.
     It is the old story. You are either for Christ or against Him.
     As I write, prayer warrior are gearing up for 3,000+ rosary rallies in public locations all across America this March in defense of God’s marriage, praying and saying:
Marriage = One man + one woman!
     I am writing you today to ask for your support, your prayers and sacrifices.
     January 23rd is the Feast day of the Betrothal of Our Lady and Saint Joseph – the perfect models.
     Sadly, you and I know how the Sacrament of marriage has suffered in the hands of a Christ-less culture…
     In 1888 the Supreme Court ruled that marriage is “an institution in the maintenance of which in its purity the public is deeply interested, for it is the foundation of the family and of society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress.
     Then in 1942 that same high court said that marriage is “fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race.”
     But today? It appears that marriage has gone to the dogs, quite literally.
     Take, for example, Michael Hughson who has been in “a serious relationship” with his dog Shady for over 4 years.
     Michael says he is only asking for equal dignity in the eyes of the law.
     The Supreme Court ruled that people have the right to marry whomever or whatever they love.
     Michael Hughson says “if love is love and everyone wants equality then everyone should have the right to marry anything and whatever they love.”
     Jayson, you and I can see how ridiculous this is. But sadly many in our culture cannot.
     And that is where our Traditional Marriage Rosary Rallies come in!
     Following the example of Saint John the Baptist, a voice that cries out in the wilderness, we will always and faithfully proclaim that God’s marriage is the only and true Marriage.
     Jayson, it is a point of fidelity to our Creator.
     By doing thousands of rosary rallies at this critical point in America’s history, we can move God and the Blessed Mother to intervene and protect true marriage!
     We are fighting for our very lives here. Without the family, as the Supreme Court said in 1888, “there would be neither civilization nor progress.”
     But how can we fight back?
     By the supernatural power of the Holy Rosary.  Because there is no problem, no matter how grave, that the rosary cannot solve, as the Blessed Mother told Sister Lucia in Fatima.
     So, we MUST turn to the rosary to win this historic spiritual battle.
     We have a very efficient team: it only costs $27 to run one Rosary Rally which reaches literally hundreds of people in the streets.
     Would you consider sponsoring one rally with a gift of $27? Or perhaps half of a Rally with a donation of $13.50?
     These Rallies are the most efficient way to reach the average man on the street: so we’re planning rosary rallies all across America at noon on the Saturday (March 18th) closest to the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19th.
     See, St. Joseph is our powerful patron.  Why?
     Because St. Joseph is the “Chaste Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
     Never was there and never will there be a better, stronger, more perfect husband than St. Joseph.  The sacred and chaste marriage between St. Joseph and Our Lady was the holiest ever.
     It was under the loving bond of this marriage that the Lord of Heaven and Earth chose to dwell while on His earthly sojourn.
     Therefore, we ask St. Joseph to watch over us, to protect us and to restore Traditional Marriage.
     And you can unite yourself with Our Lady and St. Joseph by clicking here to sponsor a Rosary Rally for Traditional Marriage.
     In fact, most Americans support traditional marriage.
     But Satan and his minions work hard to replace God’s marriage with anything else.
     But our duty and obligation in this life is to be faithful to God and not to be indifferent to what our ever-growing pagan world deems acceptable.
    In the spirit of Fidelity to God’s Law, we will fight for the Sanctity of marriage; and like St. John the Baptist, we will be a voice crying out in the wilderness – a voice that will proclaim the truth about God’s marriage = one man and one woman!
I remain your friend,
In Jesus and Mary,
Robert E. Ritchie

Senator Ron Paul Warns of Coming Economic and Currency Collapse, the Likes of Which Have Never Before Been Seen or Experienced in the US

Act of Consecration to Our Lady, Queen Mother of the Children of Light of Her Immaculate Heart

Our Lady, Mediatrix of all Grace

Our Lady, Mediatrix of all Grace

Hail, Holy Queen of Heaven and earth; Co-redemptrix with Christ; Mediatrix of all Grace and Mercy; Advocate for the People of God; Woman clothed with the Sun (cf. Rev 12:1); Spouse of the Holy Spirit; and Spiritual Mother of all humanity (cf. Jn 19:26);  we, the Apostles of Light of your Immaculate Heart, come before you this day to renew, through, with and in that same glorious Heart, the solemn vows made at our baptism. We firmly reject Satan, the ancient serpent (cf. Rev 12:9),  the Father of Lies, and a murderer from the beginning (cf. Jn 8:44), whose head, swollen with pride, shall be crushed beneath your heel (cf. Gen 3:15), and of whose poison cup we refuse to drink; we reject this world and its vanities, of which the devil is prince (cf. Jn 12:31); finally, we reject every form of impurity of mind, body and spirit.

In the presence of the Most High Triune God and His cloud of heavenly witnesses (cf. Heb 12:1-2), the angels and saints, we take you, O Blessed Virgin Mary, as our Spiritual Mother (cf. Jn 19:26); and, taking to heart what has been said of you – “she will meet him as an honourable mother, and will receive him as a wife married of a virgin. With the bread of life…she shall feed him, and give him the water of wholesome wisdom to drink: and she shall be made strong in him, and he shall not be moved” (cf. Sir 15:1-2) – we hereby espouse your Immaculate Heart, offering to you, O Mary, our little Hearts, so full of sin and self-love; that you, who cannot and will not be outdone in liberality and generosity, might meet us in the same spirit and offer to us your own Immaculate Heart. Furthermore, may we participate in your own fullness of grace, and be clothed with the myriad virtues that adorn the glorious temple of your Holy Heart. Please obtain for us a deep, ever-increasing spousal intimacy of life with you, in order that by being ever more united with, and conformed to, your Immaculate Heart, we might become increasingly united with, and conformed to, the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Our Lord, Jesus Christ – your Son and our Lord – such that we might adore His Heart with the perfect, unadulterated and immaculate love of your own Immaculate Heart, and thereby be found pleasing in His sight.

Thus, we solemnly entrust and consecrate to you, O Immaculate Virgin Mary, in our abject misery, poverty, weakness, sinfulness and nothingness, everything that we are and have, just as we are, without reserve: body, soul, intellect, will and emotions; all of our interior and exterior goods and possessions; and even the satisfactory, meritorious value of all our good works – past, present and future – for you to dispose of according to the designs of your Immaculate Heart, in anticipation of the promised Triumph of your Immaculate Heart in the Church and the world, and in preparation for the long-awaited establishment of the holy city, the new Jerusalem, that shall come down out of heaven, and through which all creation shall return to the perfect glorification of God, Who shall establish His glorious dwelling amongst men (cf. Rev 21:2-3).

Like lambs led to the slaughter who open not their mouths (cf. Acts 8:32), we place ourselves and the spiritual sacrifice of our prayers, works, joys, and especially our sufferings – of this day and of our entire lives – on the altar of your Immaculate Heart.  Please, Holy Mother, unite us and our offerings to Jesus and His perfect offering of Himself, renewed this day and everyday, throughout the world, from the rising of the sun to its setting, in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  As members of Christ’s Mystical Body and participants in His Royal Priesthood, a dignity and office bestowed upon all the baptized, may our daily participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass be the center of our day and the center of our lives.  As the true re-presentation of the once-for-all sacrifice accomplished by Christ on Calvary, may we be ever-increasingly aware of this truly awesome reality in which we participate, and by which we are united and sanctified.

Thus, we offer this sacrifice in a profound act of glorification, adoration, gratitude, reparation and supplication to the Most Holy Trinity; for the intentions and the consolation of the Two Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary; for the Church’s solemn recognition and definition of Your Spiritual Motherhood, Mary; for the Holy Father and his intentions; for all bishops, priests, deacons and religious of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church; for an increase in vocations to the holy, ministerial priesthood of Christ Jesus; for all God’s priestly people; and for the salvation of all souls until the end of time.

In imitation of Christ, your dearly beloved Son, “the firstborn of all creation” (cf. Col 1:15), we humbly request that the chalice of suffering might be taken from us (cf. Lk 22:42); yet, with Christ and in imitation of you, O Holy Virgin, we ultimately submit our unconditional and irrevocable fiat to the Divine Will, as we echo Christ’s prayer of obedient resignation: “Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will, but thine be done” (Lk 22:42); and we patiently accept, in advance, those unavoidable crosses and sufferings that the Divine Heart of God, in His infinite and inscrutable wisdom, has pre-ordained for each; understanding that the salvation of the many is contingent upon the sanctification of the few. O Mother and Mediatrix of all Grace and Mercy, may we truly participate in Your fullness of Grace and be clothed with your own heroic virtues of faith, hope, charity, purity, humility, poverty of spirit, littleness, hiddenness, fortitude, and that perfect resignation of will necessary to deny our very selves, pick up our crosses daily, and follow Jesus (cf. Lk 9:23) on the narrow path of evangelical poverty, chastity and obedience; bearing witness to our faith in Christ and His Holy Gospel in all of our thoughts, words and deeds, even to the point of the shedding of our blood, should we be called to wear the holy crown of martyrdom.

And when our mission on this earth has been accomplished, we pray that, through the most powerful intercession of St. Joseph, Universal Patron and Patron of the Dying, we too might be personally escorted, by Jesus and Mary, to the throne of the Thrice Holy Godhead; that the Eternal Father, seeing reproduced in our souls the image of His crucified Christ, might invite us to the Eternal Banquet, the heavenly wedding feast of the Lamb and His Bride, the Church (cf. Rev 19:9).  Furthermore, having comprised the humble “heel” of the Mystical Body used by you, Mary, to crush the head of the ancient serpent (cf. Gen: 3:15), may we, one day, make up bright, shining stars in the crown about your Most Immaculate Heart (cf. Rev 12:1). And may we behold He Who is, Who was, and Who shall be for all eternity, participating in the merits of the angels and saints in paradise and in the eternal chorus of praise, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power and might to our God forever and ever (cf. Rev 7:12). Amen.

 

 

 

 

Great Britain Leads The Way In War On Christianity While Granting Islam “Protected Status”; Under Obama, America To Follow Suit

Sign your soul over to Satan in Detroit – The Mark of the Beast vs the Seal of the Father

BaphometThis article originally appeared on the blog “http://divineheartofgod.org”

Many of you will probably have heard or read about the most recent, blatant worship to Satan in Detroit, Michigan through the ceremonial unveiling of the statue of the high demon Baphomet. This is the same demon who was originally worshiped in the city of Mendes in ancient Egypt. But that is not the main point of this post. As part of the ceremony, those who bought a $25 ticket to attend were instructed to sign a document on which was written the following:

I agree that by signing this document under any name, given or adopted, actual or pseudonymous, I am hereby avowing my soul to Satan (aka Abbadon, aka Lucifer, aka Beelzebub, aka The Antichrist) . . . I do so knowing that He (aka The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies) or any of His representatives may choose to collect my eternal soul at any time, with or without notice. I understand that my signature or mark representing any name, real or made up, upon these papers constitutes a lasting and eternal contract, and that there will be no further negotiations on the matter of my eternal soul.

Compare that with what Saint Nilus had to say about the mark of the beast:

On the seal (the mark) will be written the following: ‘I am yours.’ ‘Yes, you are mine.’ ‘I go willingly, not by force.’ ‘And I accept you in accordance with your will, and not by force.’

Some of you may disagree; some of you may mock and scorn at all of the above. But the fact remains that those who did not reject the screed on the said document and signed it, even if they did not think anything would or could happen, now or at any time in the future, in both essence and fact legalistically signed over their souls to Satan for $25. And Satan will ‘happily’ take them, albeit at his own convenience, because he is a first-class legalist; that is his specialty. The above is a beginning, manifest example of the mark of the beast (Rv 13 & 14), which is no more, no less, than consecration to Satan; knowing or otherwise.

Only one thing and one thing alone supercedes the mark of the beast and that is the Seal of God the Father (Rv 3:10-12), which is granted to a soul, to a human being, through consecration to Him. Reserved specifically for the time when the mark would become openly manifest and celebrated in the world – and that is in our present time, which we have brought about by our own free will choice – the Seal of the Heavenly Father, the lineage of which dates back to the Seal of Yahweh originally conferred upon Aaron, has the power to protect souls and annul the mark of the beast.

There is no other option, no other way, in the days to come. An epic battle will soon ensue between the declared children of light and the declared children of darkness – a spiritual and physical battle, the proportions of which have never been seen before – and it will go down in the annals of history. The time will come and is already here when you will belong either to God the Almighty Father or to Satan. The middle way, the way of the lukewarm (Rv 3:15-16), has been taken away by Christ Himself, so that the sifting of humankind can take place and those who are for God become everlasting witnesses for the glory of His mighty Name.

“Mankind is at a Tipping Point”

3392967147_4ba63648f6_oMary  

How small and tiny are my words compared to the greatness of the problems and the darkness which fills the world.  Yet, anyone with faith will believe that my words, my plans and my actions will save the world.  I must, therefore, speak of the future so my children understand.

Do not expect me to openly intervene by great visions to world leaders or by great miracles that turn back the violence.  Do not expect me to sweep over the world and in one day return all to sanity and peace.  These actions are too apocalyptic, reserved for Jesus’ final coming.

My plans are not for a final coming, but for a drawing of all creation into a heavenly reality, for a restoration of earth and a continuing of human history.  Obviously that history is being challenged by the greatest evils that have ever existed.  Mankind is at a tipping point, when life suddenly might go from light to darkness, from order to chaos.   These are not apocalyptic words as if some heavenly power is about to chastise.  These are earthly words, the daily realities that fill the news.

What will take place?  The events will preach to all who care to listen.  The true state of affairs will become evident to all.  I am speaking now, before all the events happen, so my words can be recorded and believed.  They will be believed more after the events than before.  Even then, it will not be too late.  However, the time is very, very short.  I prophesied that 2015 would be the year for the beginning of the events and that October 13, 2017 (the 100th anniversary of Fatima) is a very important date.  So, you can see that history is moving quickly into this time period.

I would speak to different groups.  To you who know me and love me, whom I call Children of the Locutions, now is the time for the greatest fervor.  Your families must grow and your children must experience joys, but you also must gather much more for family prayer and daily devotions.  You must examine your lifestyles and act according to the words of St. Paul, “I tell you brothers, time is running out.  For the world in its present form is passing away”          (1Cor.7: 29-31).   I will be with you in your quest for a deeper life of faith.

To all the others, I say this.  Let these events preach to you.  You have been blinded by the world and its passing glory.  Let the events help you, now, to see that the world in its present form is passing away.  If you but ask, I will come to you and show you my new path for your life.

Apparition of the Queen of the Rosary, June 27th, 2015, Received by Edson Glauber

Our_Lady_Of_The_Rosary_With_St_DominicRe-printed from: http://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/edson-glauber/2015/06/06-27-apparition-of-the-queen-of-the-rosary.aspx

____________________________________________

Today during the apparition the most Blessed Mother didn’t give a message, but showed me an important vision: she appeared holding the Infant Jesus in her arms. In her right hand was a rosary which shone brightly, to her right was St Peter with a book and keys, and to her left St Paul, who held a book and a sword. They were enveloped in a light which was not as strong as the light radiating from the Infant Jesus. Below them was the globe representing the whole world.
During the apparition the Infant Jesus asked St Peter to hand him the keys and he obeyed. As soon as he had given the keys St Peter knelt and kept his head bowed in prayer. Where he was, the light that had been radiating disappeared and it became darker, only remaining bright where the Virgin was with Jesus and St Paul.
At this moment the globe below them began to be wrapped around by a large crown of thorns which wanted to dominate everything. I understood these to be difficult moments which the Church and the world were to go through, times of trial, spiritual darkness and great confusion. Our Lady, seeing what was happening and as Mother of the Church, concerned for the salvation of all, lowered her right hand in the direction of the globe, and her rosary slowly moved towards the world and around the globe. Our Lady’s rosary kept moving, turning around the world and shining brightly. I understood that she was causing her children throughout the world who believed in her apparitions and messages, to pray more and to intercede for the Church of her Divine Son and for humanity. The rosary was descending lower and lower, radiating such a strong light that the horrible crown of thorns was driven away from the globe, leaving it and being destroyed, leaving only the rosary as a sign of victory over evil and the difficult times. It was at this moment that Our Lady looked at St Paul who, as if understanding what she was saying to him, went to where St Peter was, and kneeling beside him, prayed together with him. And where St Peter was again became bright with that light. Our Lady then looked at her Divine Son and prayed to him on behalf of the Church and the world. The Infant Jesus, seeing that humanity was praying and accepted his most Holy Mother’s request, listened to her request to give the keys to St Peter once again, but the Infant Jesus gave the keys into Our Lady’s hands, who as Mother of the Church gave them into the hands of St Peter. She and the Infant Jesus gave us their blessing and the vision ended.

Words of Wisdom Regarding Same-Sex Marriage Ruling From Surprising Source

by Janet Boynes
The Supreme Court made the decision to legalize gay marriage throughout our nation. While it deeply grieves me to see how far we have strayed, it doesn’t surprise me. We are living in times where our faith will be tested. These are times in which we will be ridiculed for our beliefs and perhaps even incarcerated for holding the Word of God as our voice of truth.
As someone who has walked away from homosexuality and now has a ministry that helps men and women who desire to come out of this lifestyle, I have the responsibility to stay grounded in what I know is true. But it doesn’t stop there; you, also have the responsibility to remain steadfast without caving in to the pressures of this world.
The Supreme Court cannot redefine what they didn’t create. Marriage is a covenant, a sacred bond between a man and a woman instituted by and publicly entered into before God. Marriage is intended to be a lifetime commitment since it was established by God.
Marriage represents a serious vow that should not be entered into lightly or unadvisedly. It involves a solemn promise or pledge, not merely to one’s marriage partner, but before God. Marriage is also a human agreement between a man and a woman; it is the most intimate of all human relationships resulting in a “one-flesh” union.
So, what happens now? We pray and we act. We pray that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes of the lost. Honestly, I cannot expect them to understand the truth if the truth has not been revealed to them. I was once lost in sin, I once wanted to get married to a woman, BUT I had an encounter with God. It changed everything. So, yes, we continue to pray. In the words of Billy Graham, “It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge, and my job to love.”
We must act and continue to be a beacon of light in a dark world. We continue to stand for God’s word in spite of the backlash. We stand alongside those who will be unjustly targeted by the gay community and we fight for our religious freedoms. We must continue to be bold, strong, and uncompromising in our faith and walk as a true Christ followers. We must be as bold as lions and meek as lambs. And we must never forget that although we may lose a few battles, He has already won the war.
