"Pray This Prayer Before the Cross"

 

“Pray This Prayer Before the Cross”

On the anniversary of Lourdes our Lady gave this prayer to invoke the Holy Spirit and to prepare the way for the declaration of Fifth Marian Dogma. -Asst. Editor

 
The Lady, Mary, Mother of All Nations (1)

I see a bright light and then I see the Lady standing before me. She says,

I am the Lady, Mary, Mother of All Nations. You may say: The Lady of All Nations or Mother of All Nations, who once was Mary. I come on this very day to tell you that this is who I wish to be. The people of all countries shall truly be one.

Then, without saying anything, the Lady remains standing in her usual posture and is looking at me continuously. Then she says, “The entire world is undergoing upheaval, but the worst thing is that the people of this world are being brought into upheaval.” Then it is…

“Mary Suffers With Those Who Are in Affliction”

We are pleased to present this beautiful statement on the sufferings of Mary, given by our beloved pontiff who is following in the footsteps of his Marian predecessor, Servant of God John Paul II. In this message for the World Day of the Sick, a number of quotes draw our attention regarding the theme of Mary’s coredemption. The pope states that Mary “did not hesitate to share the Passion of her Son, renewing on Calvary at the foot of the Cross her ‘yes’ of the Annunciation.” He also states that Mary, associated with the Paschal Sacrifice, “suffers with her divine Son” and also “suffers with those who are in affliction.” Finally, Pope Benedict offers a succinct synthesis of the theology of coredemption, pointing out the value of suffering for the afflicted Christians of the world: “Mysteriously united to Christ, the one who…

Cardinal Calls Mary “Co-Redemptrix” in Vatican on Lourdes Anniversary

In St. Peter’s Basilica, on the significant date of February 11, 2008, the 150th anniversary of Lourdes, Javier Cardinal Lozano Barragán spoke significant words concerning the one who herself is the Immaculate Conception, chief among them, “Corredentrice” (literally translated, this means Co-redemptrix.) The President of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Ministry stated that Mary participated “on Calvary as the co-redemptrix (corredentrice) with the Savior. … Christ on the cross suffered all the pains that his Most Holy Mother suffered. And she in Christ suffers all our pains, she assumes them and knows how to commiserate with us. Our suffering is also her suffering.”

He also stated that the Holy Spirit unites our suffering with that of Christ, and that participation in the Eucharist is the path to this union in suffering. We present below the…

The Immaculate Conception and the Co-redemptrix

On February 17, 1941, the “Property” of the Immaculata, Fr. Maximilian Kolbe, was arrested by the Nazi Gestapo, eventually leading to his martyrdom in Auschwitz. During the few hours before his arrest, Fr. Maximilian was inspired to write the heart of his unparalleled mariological ponderings regarding the “Immaculate Conception.”

The following are excerpts from this last written testimony:

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION: These words fell from the lips of the Immaculata herself. Hence, they must tell us in the most precise and essential manner who she really is.

Since human words are incapable of expressing divine realities, it follows that these words: “Immaculate,” and “Conception” must be understood in a much more beautiful and sublime meaning than usual: a meaning beyond that which human reason at its most penetrating, commonly gives to them . . . Who then are you, O Immaculate Conception?

Not God, of course, because he has no beginning. Not an angel,…

St. Maximilian Kolbe and the Immaculata’s Universal Mediation

If the Virgin Mary was created by God and “fashioned as a new creature” by the Holy Spirit, it was… so that she might become the mother of God. Henceforth she lives with the very life of the Holy Spirit, and together with him is sent on a mission: to complete within us the efficacious Redemption brought about by our sole Mediator, Jesus. In a certain sense the definitive glory that Mary enjoys, “carried up to Heaven in body and soul,” manifests how perfect was the Redemption Jesus effected in her. When Christ presents Mary to the Father he hands over to him for eternity the masterpiece of creation, of human redemption. In Mary who is glorified the Church is made perfect. When Christ returns at the end of ages there will not be a more perfect Church. But, joined to their…

Private Revelation: Discerning with the Church: Part II

The Marian Message to the Modern World

The universally designated “Age of Mary,” which had been anticipated by the historic Marian apparitions at Guadalupe some three centuries earlier (95), is generally accepted to have begun in 1830 with the ecclesiastically approved apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Catherine Labouré in what have been named the “Miraculous Medal” apparitions. From these nineteenth-century apparitions until our present time, Marian apparitions have been reported and approved by the Church on every continent. The Marian message to the modern world begins in seed form in the revelations of Our Lady of Grace at Rue du Bac, and then expands in specificity and concretization throughout the twentieth century and on into our own time. It is important to remember that this Marian message maintains its fundamental unity as one message from one Mother, which then admits of diverse historical and cultural…

“The Woman He Loved”: Fulton Sheen and the Blessed Mother

Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary was an ever-present grace in the life of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.  Like the sun that sends its rays of light upon the earth from its rising to its setting, so the love of Our Lady shone like a bright light over the life of the future Archbishop, from its very beginning right through to its conclusion.  It left an indelible impression on his life.  This devotion began with his Baptism, at the very time his life in Christ began.  He describes what happened in his autobiography:

When I was baptized as an infant, my mother laid me on the altar of the Blessed Mother in St. Mary’s Church, El Paso, Illinois, and consecrated me to her.  As an infant may be very unconscious of a birthmark, so I was unconscious of the dedication—but the mark was always there.  Like a piece of…

“I Want To Talk To Souls About Love of Neighbor”

The following presents the initial messages from Jesus to Anne regarding his own Eucharistic presence. The messages are both sublime and powerful, and we share them with you. Anne, a visionary from Ireland, has received permission from her local ordinary, Bishop Leo O’Reilly, for the distribution of messages which she receives from Jesus, God the Father, Our Blessed Mother, the angels and saints (see article, “Discernment of Lay Apostolate of Jesus Christ the Returning King,” Marian Private Revelation section).

Jesus

I want to talk to souls about love of neighbor. My children, people are precious. Each and every person on this earth is of infinite value to Me and to My heavenly plan. But often the value is overlooked because of a worldly view of life. If I have placed a person on your earth, I intend that the person be adequately fed. You must proceed from…
