Why – March 25?

Our Lady of Fatima

I have linked Vatican and Catholic News sources on the Consecration of Ukraine and Russia. I am also linking information by Father Chris, MIC and Father Goring to give readers insights into the importance of the upcoming March 25, 2022 – Consecration of Ukraine and Russia.

I won’t be able explain in this short post the importance of this. I have discussed in earlier posting about our Immaculate Mothers’ apparitions, especially to the children in Fatima and her dire warnings of war and the human suffering. In our Holy mothers message to the children in Fatima, she specifically requested for the Consecration of Russia, which was done in the past – but without bishops participation.

Below I have embedded two videos that will help with understanding the significance of March 25th:

Father Goring on his YouTube channel often discusses the many apparitions of our Immaculate Mother. The most recent is today:

We can help by raising our voices in heartfelt prayers. Let us take the time to pray the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Russia and the Ukraine, and ask God for His blessings upon all mankind.

We can also give our soulful silent groans and moans to God to let Him know we need His intervention.

God Bless 💖

A Mother’s Love

Through our prayers, we can help avert the dangers that befalls our world. Marian apparitions throughout history has always come with grave warnings of impending danger to our humanity. At all times, they are warnings and calls to return to God. They are request by Mother Mary to pray daily on our own, as country, or as a community for God’s Divine Mercy.

It is easy to feel a sense of doom especially in light of the many events that has happened within the last two years. It is just as easy to fall into a depression, and take on an attitude that one can do nothing.

A mother’s love is great, and Mother Mary has come time and time again to warn us to ask for the diversion of impeding disasters through prayer, and turning back from our sins. She reminds us to embrace the Divine Mercy of God. Pray the Rosary daily. Pray for love and peace as a community, with a friend, with your family, or on your own:

The Hail Mary

Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. 
Amen.

We must denied ourselves and take up the cross of Jesus Christ.  

33 But strive first for the kingdom of God and his[righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33

To deny our disorders, laziness, our distractedness and inordinate comforts. Denying all those things that keep us from prayer, worship and time with God. The temptation is there, and we need overrun the evil one with God’s help by taking up the cross (Ralph Martin – Run: You Can!)

Choose God, choose faith, choose to take up the cross and pray unceasingly.

Times like these will tempt our faith. They will make us doubt. There is a battle going on between good and evil. Run to Jesus with every breathe and with every step. I always imagine within my mind’s eye of stomping on the serpent’s head – with God’s help (Genesis 3:15, Revelation 12:1-6).

Be open to receiving God’s grace to that we can let go of all the burdens that weights us down.

Hope, Faith, and Charity.

Jesus, I trust in you.


Posted below are a few videos by Mark Goring, Father Chris Alar and Ralph Martin that I compiled in the hope of easing your fears, anxieties and stress for present world events. They are a reminder that Mother Mary loves her children, and needs our help in prayer. They remind us to take up the cross for Jesus. This means denying the secularism that has pushed God and all sense of spirituality into the back burners of our lives.

God Bless 💖Let us all cone together in prayer.

I also love the Freedom Prayer, a topic that has lead to much meditation on my part as I journey in my own understanding – true freedom only comes from God.

Freedom Prayer


Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.

You promised Lord that You would set the captives free.

I confess Jesus that I am a slave and only You can break the chains that bind me.

I repent of relying on my own strength.

Without You Jesus I can do nothing.

I ask You Lord Jesus to set me free from (name area in your life where you need freedom).

Come now Holy Spirit and clothe me with power from on high. (take a moment and allow the Holy Spirit to empower you)

Give me the grace Lord Jesus to walk in faith today, confident in Your love and mercy.

Amen.

May God Bless your journey in Christ Jesus💖
