Todays post is a bit of a departure from my regular postings, but I feel that it is an important message to share, especially in light of many controversies within the Catholic Church.
Blessed Virgin Mary Apparitions
Blessed Mother Mary has appeared many times in the history of our world, especially during times of turmoil, and especially when it concerns the church and the salvation of mankind. During these apparitions, our Blessed Mother has asked us to lift our hearts in prayer, to mediate on the Passion of Christ, pray for all religious and the church, and as an act of love, we are asked to pray for one another.
I link two videos, and I hope you will take some time out during your busy day to watch them. The first is Garabandal, Unstoppable Waterfall, a documentary about the visit of our Blessed Mary to four children in Garabandal (1960s).
The second video Garabandal And The Priesthood is by Fr. Luke:
We know that the second message of Garabandal was very grave in its statement about Priests, Bishops and Cardinals. In our present day it might not seem as that far fetched that Our Blessed Mother said that many of them were on the way to perdition and bringing many souls with them. Our Lady did also show a very motherly tenderness to her priests in Garabandal. Also the major emphasis that was given to the Eucharist was also indicative to the importance of the priest. In tonights podcast Father Luke will discuss our current crisis of priest in light of what Our blessed Mother said in Garabandal as well as provide practical advice as to how we can live this current situation.Fr.

What does our Blessed Mothers’ apparitions mean to me? What is her message for the church? How can I be a good disciple of Jesus? What can I do as a Catholic? How can I help make positive changes in my life, and in the life of the church?
For myself, I make time each morning to pray the Saint Gertrude Prayer (Prayer for Holy Souls in Purgatory – https://rejoiceandpraise.ca/2021/11/10/for-the-souls-who-have-gone-before-me/) and Divine Mercy Chaplet ( https://rejoiceandpraise.ca/the-divine-mercy-chaplet/) for all – religious, sinners, the lukewarm, the lost sheep – that the truth and righteousness of God reigns first and fore most in the heart of all religious, that lukewarm souls may find renewal, the lost sheep to be found, and for sinners to come know God’s Divine Mercy.
Let each of us find the time to pray, not for what we want, but for those around us – our family, community, parish, church and all religious. Let us all share our Blessed Mother’s message to those around us.
God Bless 💖
