Dear children! I rejoice with you and thank you for every sacrifice and prayer you have shown to my intentions. Little children, remember that you are important in my plan for the salvation of mankind. Return to God and pray that the Holy Spirit may work in you and through you. Little children, I am with you even in these days when Satan is fighting for war and hatred. The division is strong and evil works in man like never before. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"The Vigil of Our Lady of Mt Carmel"


Rosary at 6:00 PM        Holy Mass 6:30 PM


Celebrated by Father Maxy D'Costa

The Brown Scapular is a gift to you from your Heavenly Mother Mary.

“WHOSOEVER DIES IN THIS GARMENT SHALL NOT SUFFER ETERNAL FIRE.”

Promise of Our Lady to St. Simon Stock on July 16, 1251

+

June 24, 2022, we celebrated the Feasts of the Sacred Heart of Jesus & Immaculate Heart of Mary. We gather and prayed the Rosary at 6 pm and then celebrated Holy Mass at 6:30 pm with Father Maxy D'Costa.  A blessed time for all gathered. 


“The alliance of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is the formal linking 

of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 

two widely-known and practiced devotions. Making devotions to the 

two hearts draws us closer to God and helps us deepen our Catholic faith.”



May 31, 2022, Visitation of Our Lady

We celebrated the Feast of the Visitation at our Prayer Center. We prayed the Rosary and Divine Mercy at 2 and Celebrated Holy Mass at 3 with Father Maxy D'Costa.   Our Lady continues to call each of us to Her Immaculate Heart - She takes us to Her Son's Sacred Heart where we can grow and find Peace in our challenging world.  We continue to pray for each of your many needs.   

All in Christ.  Lk 1:39-45


May 13, 2022 We celebrated Our Lady of Fatima at St John the Baptist Church.  John Johnson gave us a detailed presentation entitled:  "Fatima, The Message of Hope For Our Times." 

- Is Our Lady's Message still Important for Us Today?" 
- Why did Mary Come to Fatima, Portugal in 1917?
- Is Mary still Calling Us to Love, to Conversion, to Penance for the Sake of JESUS?

"God wants to Establish Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary."



March 25, 2022, Our Lady's Annunciation

We had a blessed and wonderful celebration at our Marian Prayer Center with Father Maxy as our celebrant. We also prayed the March 25th Consecration with our Lady, in union with our entire Church for Peace in our troubled world for Russia and the Ukraine.  We will continue to lift up our prayers and sacrifices for Peace in our Troubled World to stop all wars! 

Please continue each day to pray with us!

Morning Blend  7 Sorrows Rosary Link

Recorded Feb 10 2022



Praying the 7 Sorrows of the Virgin Mary, 

as taught by our Blessed Mother in Kibeho. 


In Mary's apparition in Rwanda to the children, Our Lady of Kibeho made an

urgent appeal to pray this devotion to the 7 Sorrows Rosary for repentance

and conversion.  She said to pray it daily or at least on Tuesdays and Fridays..

But not to replace the rosary,  This is really needed for this time.


This is a perfect prayer for us as we enter 

Lent and prepare for Easter with Our Risen Lord and Savior.

MESSAGE May 25, 2022

"Dear children! I am looking at you and thanking God for each of you, because He permits me to still be with you, to encourage you to holiness. Little children, peace is disturbed and Satan wants peacelessness. That is why, may your prayer be even stronger so that every unclean spirit of division and war may be stilled. Be builders of peace and carriers of joy of the Risen One in you and around you, for the good to win in every man. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

MESSAGE April 25, 2022

"Dear children! I am looking at you and I see that you are lost. That is why I am calling all of you: return to God, return to prayer - and the Holy Spirit will fill you with His love which gives joy to the heart. Hope will grow in you, also for a better future, and you will become joyful witnesses of God's mercy in you and around you. 

Thank you for having responded to my call."

MESSAGE March 25, 2022

“Dear children! I am listening to your cry and prayers for peace. For years, Satan has been fighting for war. That is why God sent me among you to guide you on the way of holiness, because humanity is at a crossroad. I am calling you to return to God and to God’s Commandments that it may be good for you on earth, and that you may come out of this crisis into which you have entered because you are not listening to God who loves you and desires to save you and lead you to a new life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” 

March 18, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! From the Parish of Medjugorje

The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily apparitions from June 24th 1981 to December 25th 1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear to her once a year, on the 18th of March. It has been this way through the years. The apparition lasted from 13:34 to 13:40:


"Dear children, With a motherly love I am calling you to—full of strength, faith and trust—look towards my Son. Keep opening your hearts to Him and do not be afraid, because my Son is the Light of the world and in Him is peace and hope. That is why, anew, anew I am calling you to pray for those of my children who have not come to know the love of my Son, so that my Son, with His light of love and hope, may illuminate also their hearts; and you, my children, that He may strengthen and give you peace and hope. I am with you. Thank you."


Latest Medjugorje Message - Our Lady asks us to take her messages seriously (See below for past messages).

February 25, 2022

“Dear children! I am with you and we pray together. Help me with prayer, little children, that Satan may not prevail. His power of death, hatred, and fear has visited the earth. Therefore, little children, return to God and to prayer, to fasting and to renunciation, for all those who are downtrodden, poor, and have no voice in this world without God. Little children, if you do not return to God and His Commandments, you do not have a future. That is why He sent me to you to guide you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

January 25, 2022

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to return to personal prayer. Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good. I am with you and am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call"


Dec 25 2021 Message of our Lady to Jakov 

At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo on September 12th, 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, every December 25th, on Christmas Day. This is also how it was this year. The apparition began at 2:25 pm and lasted 9 minutes. Our Lady came with little Jesus in her arms.

Through Jakov, Our Lady gave the following message:

“Dear children, You are, and you are called, ‘children of God’. If only your hearts would feel that immeasurable love which God has for you, your hearts would adore and give thanks to Him at every instant of your life. Therefore, little children, today, on this day of grace, open your hearts and implore the Lord for the gift of faith; so that you could truly become worthy of the name ‘children of God’ who, with a pure heart, give thanks to and honor their Heavenly Father. I am beside you and am blessing you with my motherly blessing”


BLESSED NEW YEAR 2022 - Jan 1st  MARY the MOTHER OF GOD


From antiquity, Mary has been called "Theotokos", or "God-Bearer" (Mother of God). The word in Greek is "Theotokos". The term was used as part of the popular piety of the early first millennium church. It is used throughout the Eastern Church's Liturgy, both Orthodox and Catholic. 


It lies at the heart of the Latin Rite's deep Marian piety and devotion. This title was a response to early threats to 'orthodoxy', the preservation of authentic Christian teaching. A pronouncement of an early Church Council, The Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D., insisted "If anyone does not confess that God is truly Emmanuel, and that on this account the holy virgin is the "Theotokos" (for according to the flesh she gave birth to the word of God become flesh by birth) let him be anathema." (The Council of Ephesus, 431 AD)

CCC # 956. The intercession of the Saints.  
"Being more closely united to Christ, those who dwell in heaven fix the whole Church more firmly in holiness.... They do not cease to intercede with the Father for us, as they proffer the merits which they acquired on earth through the one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus.... So by their fraternal concern is our weakness greatly helped." [LG 49; cf. 1 Tim 2:5.]

All you Holy Angels and Saints pray for us poor sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Please continue to Pray for our future events, all for the GLORY of GOD!

Feast Days

Mary, the Mother of Jesus is Queen of all Angels and Saints! 

December 8th, Weds The Immaculate Conception


Holy Rosary Center and Novena Dec 8th-16th


The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic dogma that states that Mary was conceived without original sin or its stain. That’s what “immaculate” means: without stain.


Catholic Catechism 491 Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, "full of grace" through God, 134 was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:


The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin. 135                                                  +


Our Lady of Guadalupe  December 12th   Story

Song


This appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe was very important to the history of our continent. You see, the Aztec Indians and the Spaniards were on the brink of war. The Aztec Indians’ culture and religion were very different from the Spaniards. They worshiped gods, to whom they would offer human sacrifices, often killing 50,000 people a year.


Mary’s appearance changed everything, however. It helped the Indians to embrace Christianity and it helped the Spaniards to treat the Indians with respect and as human beings. In the course of seven years, 6,000,000 Indians converted to the Catholic faith. This was the biggest conversion in the history of the Church! This is why Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patroness of the Americas. Juan Diego, the humble man to whom she appeared, was canonized in the summer of 2002.

Fatima - Miracle of the Sun

Message of Fatima: Requests are for prayer, reparation, repentance, and sacrifice, and the abandonment of sin. 


Before Our Lady appeared to the three shepherd children, Lucy, Francisco and Jacinta, the Angel of Peace visited them. The Angel prepared the children to receive the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his instructions are an important aspect of the Message that is often overlooked.  More...

"Dear children! Today I am calling you to return to personal prayer. Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good. I am with you and am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call."


December 25, 2021

“Dear children! Today I am carrying my Son Jesus to you, for Him to give you His peace. Little children, without peace you do not have a future or blessing; therefore return to prayer, because the fruit of prayer is joy and faith, without which you cannot live. Today's blessing which we give you, carry to your families and enrich all those whom you meet, that they may feel the grace which you are receiving. Thank you for having responded to my call.


November 25, 2021 

“Dear children!  I am with you in this time of mercy and I am calling all of you to be carriers of peace and love in this world where, through me, little children, God is calling you to be prayer and love, and an expression of Heaven here on earth. May your hearts be filled with joy and faith in God; that, little children, you may have complete trust in His holy will. That is why I am with you, because He, the Most High, is sending me among you to encourage you to the hope; and you will be peacemakers in this peaceless world. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


October 25, 2021 Marija

"Dear children! Return to prayer because [he] who prays is not afraid of the future; [he] who prays is open to life and respects the life of others; [he] who prays, little children, feels the freedom of the children of God and in joy of heart serves for the good for his brother-man. Because God is love and freedom, therefore, little children, when they want to put you in bonds and to use you, it is not from God. Because God loves and gives His peace to every creature; and that is why He sent me to you to help you to grow in holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.” 


Oct 7, 2021 Mary's TV Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary


September 25, 2021 Marija 

"Dear children! Pray, witness and rejoice with me because the Most High continues to send me to lead you on the way of holiness. Be aware, little children, that life is short, and eternity is waiting for you to give glory to God with your being, with all the saints. Little children, do not worry about earthly things, but long for Heaven. Heaven will be your goal and joy will begin to reign in your heart. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call."


August 25, 2021 Marija

"Dear Children! With joy I am calling all of you, little children, who have responded to my call: be joy and peace. Witness with your lives Heaven, which I am bringing to you. It is time,  little children,  that you be a reflection of my love for all those who do not love and whose hearts hatred has conquered. Do not forget: I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus, that He may give you His peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."


July 25, 2021 Marija

"Dear children!  I am calling you to be prayer for all those who do not pray. Little children, witness with your lives the joy that you are mine and God will heed your prayers and give you peace in this peaceless world where pride and selfishness reign. Little children, you be generous and be the love of my love, so that pagans can feel that you are mine and convert to my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call."


June 25, 2021 Marija

"Dear children! My heart is joyful because through these years I see your love and openness to my call. Today I am calling all of you: pray with me for peace and freedom, because Satan is strong and by his deception, wants to lead away all the more hearts from my motherly heart. That is why decide for God so that it may be good for you on the earth which God gave you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
