Message of the Blessed Virgin Mary
March 25, 20921
"Dear children! Also today I am with you to tell you: Little children, who pray do not fear the future and do not lose hope. You are chosen to carry joy and peace because you are mine. I have come here with the name 'Queen of Peace' because the devil wants peacelessness and war, he wants to fill your hearts with fear of the future - but the future is God's. That is why be humble and pray, and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High Who created you.
Thank you for having responded to my call."
'THIS FINAL PASSOVER'
At the beginning of Our Lord's public ministry in his hometown Synagogue, Jesus proclaimed: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free..." Then he looked intently at all in the synagogue, saying: "Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing" (Luke 4:14-30).
Imagine being a first follower of Jesus and hearing these words. What a thrill! Though the townsfolk rejected him, those first disciples' hearts must have burned with hope—liberty to captives, sight for the blind, freedom for the oppressed! The Savior had come to redeem His people! Little did they know, then, but the road to such freedom would come by way of agony, scourging, crucifixion, and death!
Family, we are in a dark and trying time in history. Like those first disciples, we long for liberty, sight, and freedom, but are surprised and dejected by the rugged road of the Cross. How we long for Easter Sunday! And how we shirk our share in Good Friday!
The Catechism of the Catholic Church: paragraph 677, offers us an important reminder "The Church will enter the glory of the Kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will fellow her Lord in His death and Resurrection. The Kingdom will be fulfilled then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God's victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven."
As we accompany Our Lord in his Sacred Triduum, let us pray for the Church. Let us pray for the Church. Let us pray that all souls will receive Jesus' redeeming love. Let us abide in hope with Our Lady. And, as the first Easter light dawns, let us be waiting at the empty tomb.
Finally, dear friends, let us proclaim with St. Thomas: "My Lord and MyGod."

March 18, 2021 Message through Mirjana
"Dear Children,! In a motherly way I am calling you to return to the joy and the truth of the Gospel, to return to the love of my Son - because He is waiting for you with open arms: that everything you do in life you do with my Son, with love; that it may be blessed for you; so that your spirituality may be internal, and not just external. Only in that way will you be humble, generous, filled with love and joyful; and my motherly heart will rejoice with you. Thank you."
I wanted to share with you something beautiful I heard in Medjugorje. For those who don't know, Medjugorje is a beautiful place where Marv, the Mother of Jesus, appearing since 1981. It is a peaceful place, surrounded by hills and mountains and the air is clean and the wind is gentle. Mary chose a great place as she always does. In Rwanda She chose Kibeho, a paradise indeed. When I am in Medjugorje, I love that everything is either PRAYER or about prayer. Every evening, there is a 3 hours of prayers, first the Rosary, then Mass, then an hour of Adoration or Veneration of the Cross. During the day, there are different talks, about God that encourages our Faith. Before you know it the whole day has been PRAYER.
When I want to spend time in prayer, I go to Medj., then I am not trying so hard to find time to pray. One of the talks I have enjoyed so much, among many (ex. Patrick and Nancy), is the talk of Fr. Leon, a priest who was blessed to see Our Lady in Medjugorje with his own eyes. He describes Her as a young woman of incomparable beauty, whose presence makes you feel the very essence of happiness, totally loved. She spoke to him and gave him a message for all of us. He said, that Our Lady told him all his sins in a most positive way, like a Mother guiding a son to notice his mistakes in order to change them. In his words, "every little lack of charity, every unkind comment, every dishonest thought ... they all count...' When he asked Our Lady who she was, She told him, "I am your Mother and the Mother of God. I want you to tell everyone you meet that I am their Mother and I love them."
Fr. Leon says that when she said, "l am their Mother', it felt to him that She gave birth to everyone. And when She said, "I love them", he described it as if he felt crashed with HER LOVE, to feel it. He said about how She looked at him, "She absolutely adores you, she looked at me like I was the only person in the whole universe and that is how She looks at everyone.' Mary is a reflection of God's Love and that spoke to my heart not only how much Mary loves me but how much God loves me.
I have written my experience of surviving the genocide in Rwanda back in 1994 and how I came to forgive the killers of my 'family, in my book, "Left To Tell" When I think back, I was only able to forgive because I felt love greater than any hate, or pain. During the 3 months I was hiding, I prayed all day, I spoke to God and Mary through the prayer of the Rosary all day, even when I felt anger, I begged them to help me. In the end His GRACE found a way to my heart and it changed me. I felt God's immeasurable LOVE and everything else, seemed so tiny in the face of such great feeling of LOVE. You can't LOVE and hate at the same time. We all need to feel loved, to know we are loved unconditionally, and we are. That is why Mary appears to reveal this LOVE. If She can love that much, how does God love us? This is a time of great GRACES. Take advantage on it, read the messages and if you can, go visit and see for yourself. God Bless you, Immaculee.

St. Catherine of Siena
Her Feast Day, April 29
Catherine was born during the outbreak of the plague in Siena, Italy on March 24, 1347. She was the 25* child born to her parents. Catherine herself was a twin, but her sister did not survive infancy. As she grew into young adulthood, despite her religious nature, she did not choose to enter a convent, and instead, she joined the Third Order of St. Dominic, which allowed her to associate with a religious community while living at home. It was members of the Dominican sisters that taught her how to read. She lived quietly, isolated within her family home, However, something changed her when she was 21. She described the experience as a "mystical marriage to Christ," She says in her vision the was told to reenter public life and to help the poor and sick.
She also began to travel, calling for reform of the Church and for people to confess and to love God. She became involved in politics and was key in working to keep city states loyal to the Pope. She, also was instrumental in persuading the Pope in France to return to Rome. She is one of the most influential and popular saints in the Church.

We Belong to Each Other
"Today, if we have no peace, it is became we have forgotten that we belong to each other — that man, that woman, that child is my brother or my sister. If everyone could see the image of God in his neighbor, do you think we would still need tanks and generals?"
"Let us not use bombs and guns to overcome the world. Let us use love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile. Smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at; do it for peace. Let us radiate the peace of God." —Mother Teresa
Motherhood is so precious. Pope John Paul II believed that women are gifted to be the instructors of men to discover and live a loving life. As he wrote in "Mulieris Dignitatem": 'In God's eternal plan, woman is the one in who the order of love in the created world of persons takes first root" And "Motherhood's essence consist in the complete laying down of self in order to beget, nourish, and sweeten the life of another."
Jesus came into the world through the "fiat" of Mary and her motherhood. John Paul said in April 2001: "The compassion of God for men was communicated to the world precisely through the motherhood of the Virgin Mary."
Our Lady offers us God's plan. Motherhood is key. Visionary Mirjana Soldo was told by Our Blessed Mother Mary that she had been a normal and simple women in Nazareth who had experienced poverty and had just as many problems as any other mortal. She knows our concerns. Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta expressed it as the secret of her apostolate, never getting lost or anxious, by just putting her hand in Our Lady's hand and never letting go!
Take Our Lady's hand in prayer every day, especially in her month of May and on Mother's Day and be a living instrument of God's peace.
The Sun in the sky is symbolic of The Son of God in the Holy Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament. This is why most Monstrances are in the form of a sunburst.
The miracle of the sun is a sign of how close Jesus and Mary are to us and how much they love us. The miracle is often experienced by pilgrims visiting apparition sites like Kabiho, Africa: Medjugorje, Fatima and Lourdes.
Spiritual Warfare is an 'unseen' war but...the most deadly of all! It is a battle for the soul!
St. Gemma Gagliani
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you
As simple as that, whenever you feel like you are not at peace, patient, unrest in your soul and troubled, find time and place to pray and invite the Holy Spirit to fill your heart We are always engaged in a battle of good and evil as long as we live on earth, but there is nothing to fear, because we have Jesus, we have His Angels to protect us and the power of the Holy Spirit to renew our strength.
Rooting for you, Immaculee
Pray for me,
I will pray for you.
"Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy." Saint Augustine
On the cross,
the fountain of
My mercy was opened
wide by the lance
for all souls —
no one have
