Dear Family of Mary!

Here is the
 June 25, 2019 Message (through Marija):
"Dear children! I am thanking God for each of you. In a special way, little children, thank you for having responded to my call. I am preparing you for the new times that you may be firm in faith and persevering in prayer, so that the Holy Spirit may work through you and renew the face of the earth. I am praying with you for peace which is the most precious gift, even though Satan wants war and hatred. You, little children, be my extended hands and proudly go with God. Thank you for having responded to my call."

And here is the Regular Annual Message through the visionary Ivanka:
The visionary Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez had her regular annual apparition on June 25th 2019.  At her last daily apparition on May 7, 1985, Our Lady confided to Ivanka the 10th secret and told her that she would have an apparition once a year on the anniversary of the apparitions. It was that way also this year.

The apparition, which lasted 4 minutes (18:37h - 18:41h), took place at Ivanka's family home. Only Ivanka's family was present at the apparition. After the apparition, Ivanka said that Our Lady gave the following message:

"Little children, pray, pray, pray."

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Celebration of Pentecost

St. Pius V Church holds weeklong celebration of Pentecost

PROVIDENCESt. Pius V Church is holding a weeklong celebration of the Feast of Pentecost that includes guest preachers, lectures and other special events.
“Hopefully it hits most things that affect the life of a parish,” said Father James Sullivan, O.P., the pastor of St. Pius V.
The week kicked off with the Mass for the Feast of Pentecost and a homily by guest preacher Father Peter John Cameron, O.P., the founding editor-in-chief of Magnificat and author of a book on preaching. The scheduled events for the week included: a lecture by Providence College theologian Aurelie Hagstrom on depictions of the Holy Spirit at 7 p.m. on Tuesday; Scripture reading and songs about the Holy Spirit at 7 p.m. on Wednesday; as well as a conference on the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Dominican saints by Father Patrick Briscoe, O.P., slated for Friday at 7 p.m.
Several Masses are also listed in the church’s bulletin as being part of the celebration, including a Mass at St. Anthony of Padua Church on Thursday.
“Our hope is that by dedicating a week to the Holy Spirit as a parish community, we might, all of us, be renewed,” said Father Briscoe, the parochial vicar at St. Pius V.
In his homily, Father Cameron described the Holy Spirit as “love in a person.” “This is the love that we’ve been made for,” Father Cameron said.
He said Pentecost was about this love “breaking through all the desolation … all the alienation, and all the isolation.”
“What’s the cause of so much of the misery in our life? Isn’t it the fear that we have to contend with? So the Holy Spirit comes to us to save us from our fear,” Father Cameron said.
Father Cameron also told the story of a teenage couple in New York City pregnant with conjoined twins who shared one heart. Despite the suggestion that they should have an abortion, the couple decided to proceed with the pregnancy. After their birth, the young father held his underweight little girls in his arms and said, “I’m here. Don’t be afraid. Daddy’s here.”
“Such a powerful beauty was manifesting itself that everyone in that room was changed,” Father Cameron said.
The new dad’s love for his newborn daughters reflected that of the Father. “This is the look of God the Father on us and on us at Pentecost,” Father Cameron said, quoting one of the Catholic doctors who witnessed the moment.
In the closing prayer, Father Sullivan reaffirmed Father Cameron’s message. “If you ever feel lonely, come here,” Father Sullivan said.
Afterwards, Father Sullivan told the Rhode Island Catholic that he hoped the weeklong series of events encourages parishioners to become more engaged with their parish — beyond merely attendance at Sunday Mass. “A parish is more than that. A parish is where you come to belong to something greater than yourself,” Father Sullivan said.
Pentecost, Father Sullivan said, is about the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit and the manifestation of the Church to the world through the power of the Holy Spirit. One inspiration for the series was the recent institution of the memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church on the Monday after Pentecost.
Father Sullivan said the events are intended to celebrate Pentecost, provide ongoing catechesis, deepen a sense of community at the parish and increase awareness of the Holy Spirit. The events are open to anyone from the public, not just registered parishioners.
St. Pius V’s Pentecost celebration mirrors the eight-day octaves surrounding Christmas and Easter, according to Father Sullivan. In the octave, every day is thought of as Christmas or Easter. “That mystery that we’re celebrating — whether it be the Incarnation at Christmas, the resurrection at Easter, the manifestation of the Church to the world or the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost — cannot be contained in one Mass, one day. It fills out,” Father Sullivan said.
In the liturgical life of the Church, Pentecost is part of a process of gradual revelation that goes all the way back to the Feast of the Annunciation, Father Sullivan said. “Jesus is continually revealing these inner truths that are not at first apparent and so you have to stay with Him to the end when it all will be revealed,” he said.


With Out The Holy Spirit We Would Have Nothing

A neighbor of mine this past week asked m
e why we Catholics don’t worship the Holy Spirit, why we priests never give a sermon on the Holy Spirit. He said he remembered the end of the Apostles Creed: “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.” “But what do we believe about the Holy Spirit?” he asked.
I wanted to say that without the Holy Spirit we would have nothing. I wanted to give him a copy of my brother John’s book called No Spirit, No Church, a phrase borrowed from Cardinal Suenens of Paris. Yes, in sacred scripture and tradition the Holy Spirit holds an· essential place. In the Acts of the Apostles the Holy Spirit is the source of the action 57 times. In St. Paul’s Letters, the Spirit is invoked 157 times. Indeed without the sending of the Spirit from God the Father and God the Son there is no church, no mission, no grace of salvation, no fulfillment of the work of Jesus Christ. As Jesus himself said to his apostles, it is to our great advantage that Jesus and his Father send his Spirit on the church.
In our baptism the Holy Spirit gives us the new life of heavenly grace, intimacy with God, the pledge of eternal life. In our Eucharist it is only by the invocation of the Holy Spirit that our gifts of bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ, the food of everlasting life. Without the gift of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation we would have no power to witness to Jesus and his Gospel. Without the Holy Spirit there would be no forgiveness of sins in Confession. “Receive the Holy Spirit,” said Jesus to the apostles. “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven.” Without the Holy Spirit there would be only division and confusion in the church, for it is He that binds us together in love. Without the Holy Spirit we would have no understanding of God and the mystery of salvation; for it is He that gives us intelligence about the plan of God. Without the Holy Spirit we would be motionless in our own tracks, for it is He that directs our journey and points us in the right direction. Without the Holy Spirit we would be minced meat for our adversaries, for it is He that defends us from our enemies. Without the Holy Spirit, we could not pray, for it is He who prompts and enables us in prayer. Without the Holy Spirit, we would have no “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control,” for these are the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we would not be strengthened in these gifts, for it is He who confirms and seals us in the Sacrament of Anointing. Without the Holy Spirit there is no resurrection from the dead, for as St. Paul wrote: “the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will also raise our mortal bodies.” We begin and end our life in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We pass from death to life in the power of the Holy Spirit. We live and breathe each day in the love of the Holy Spirit. As my brother Father John wrote, No Spirit, No Church Or as our Sequence at Mass said: “Where you are not, we have naught, Nothing good in deed or thought.”
Why is it, then, that we do not give proper worship and honor to the Holy Spirit?
Is it not because we don’t read and study our Scripture? There we see Jesus commanding his disciples at his Ascension to pray and wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit. There we hear Jesus say: “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth ... and He will declare to you the things that are to come ... He will receive of what is mine and give it to you.” In the sacred scripture the Holy Spirit reveals to us the things of God and enables us to pray in union with the Saints of God. St. Luke in The Acts of the Apostles reveals the power of the Holy Spirit on the feast of Pentecost, the birthday of the church. Then the apostles “were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.” All who heard the apostles preach in the power of the Holy Spirit that day understood “the mighty acts of God” and received new life in the birth of Baptism.
My friends, it is this same Holy Spirit that God the Father and his Son sends into his church every moment to pour forth God’s love into our hearts and to enable us to minister to each other the mercy, joy and peace of God. Our prayer today and each day is:
“Come Holy Spirit and fill the hearts of the faithful.” Come Holy Spirit, for without you we shiver and shake in trepidation. Come Holy Spirit, for with you we have courage and strength to stand up for the truth of Jesus. Come Holy Spirit, for with you we have “love, joy, peace” and understanding. Come Holy Spirit, for without you there is no Church. Come Holy Spirit, for with you there is “faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
It is the Holy Spirit that binds God the Father to God the Son. It is the Spirit that binds us to the heart of Jesus and to one another. It is the Spirit that distributes the evangelical gifts to the members of the Church. It is the Spirit that points and guides us to eternal life, to God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. Praise and honor to God the Holy Spirit, the one sent and given to the world for our salvation and for the glory of God.
Alleluia, Alleluia. Amen.


Dancing Sun at Ngome

A deacon and his wife were on traveling back home at sunset after visiting the Ngome Marian Shrine in Zululand South Africa and recorded this strange phenomena of the sun which appears to be dancing and changing shape.


Father Peter Mary Rookey and his Miracle Prayer


Every now and then I learn about something and wonder: Why didn’t I know about this before?  Father Peter Mary Rookey falls into that category.  I learned about him after coming across the “Miracle Prayer,” written and promoted by him while he was alive. Although we cannot assume anyone is in heaven unless they are canonized a saint, (so we should still send up a prayer for them) it seems from Father Rookey's life that he would be a powerful intercessor.

Born in Superior, Wisconsin, on October 12, 1916. Father Rookey  grew up in  a family of thirteen. When he was eight years old, he was blinded by a Fourth of July firework. Despite being told there was no cure for him, his sight gradually  improved. He credited that to his mother leading the family in praying the rosary each evening "until little Peter's eyesight returns."
Father Rookey was ordained a priest with the Servite seminary on May 17, 1941 at the Servite Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica in Chicago. He helped expand the Order to Ireland where he served from 1948 to 1953 as assistant master and then prior  Benburb Priory. He was fluent in seven languages and served as Assistant Master of Novices, at Mt. St. Philip in Granville, Wisconsin, and then as assistant pastor at Assumption Parish in Portland, Oregon.  
Healing Begins
It was while in Ireland that the healing began. Blessing people who requested it after Mass, not an uncommon request, miraculous healings began to occur. Word spread, and more and more people came for his blessings. 
TheChicago Tribune wrote about him in 1994. "’It was very humbling,’ Rookey says.  It appeared that many had experienced cures for life-threatening illnesses or injuries-unbeknownst to the young cleric. The priest's popularity did not escape his superiors' attention.”
The Tribune explained that the Church was cautious about all this attention and claims of miracles so by 1953 Rookey was assigned as assistant general of the Servite Order in Rome, putting his healing ministry on hold for more than three decades. “When asked how he felt about that, by the Tribune,  Rookey responded:  “I became a priest to be an obedient servant of God's will. I trust my superiors to make wise decisions about the use of my gifts."
During the late 1960s, after the Charismatic movement took hold and gained acceptance in the Church, Father Rookey's healing ministry became accepted and endorsed by the Church's hierarchy and his order. He became known internationally for miraculous healings and also for his life-changing Miracle Prayer and was the subject of three books. Father Rookey died in his sleep just short of his 98th birthday, on September 10, 2014.

The Miracle Prayer of Father Peter Mary Rookey
Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit. Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen. 
Mary, Mother of Sorrows, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.
 Quotes from Father Rookey: “Say this prayer faithfully, no matter what you feel, when you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word, with all your heart, something good spiritually will happen to you. You will experience Jesus, and HE will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.”  
"We all have weaknesses that affect our body, mind, and spirit. But it is our will to overcome them that decides how we live. ‘With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible,’” (Mt 19:26).

Medjugorje, prayer of healing and liberation of 11 June 2019


I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit

Medjugorje:   Photo taken by  Barbara Goodier on October 2nd, 2010 at the time of Mirjana's apparition. A few of us were praying the Rosary at the Crucifix on Sr. Immanuel's property. We were looking towards the Blue Cross on Apparition Hill and saw the sun spinning. That's when I took the picture. May you receive a special blessing from the Lord today!

Dear children! As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the Living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want. Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God's plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am with you; you decide. Thank you. Medjugorje message of(June 2, 2011)

"I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit." Mother Mary wants to give us the divine flashlight, the light of the Holy Spirit, the light of Truth. Without this light we cannot see things as they really are. We live in a world of darkness, of sin. We may be too used to the dark. We have to shake ourselves free of the darkness. We cannot see the loving actions of God unless they are illuminated by the Holy Spirit, because we are so blinded by darkness, even darkness within. We need light. And so Mother Mary offers us the divine flashlight, the gift of the Holy Spirit. We have only to receive it. And what better time than penecost?

St. Basil the Great, Bishop, wrote about the Holy Spirit in terms of light in the Office of Readings for Tuesday, the 7th week of Easter:

"The Spirit is the source of holiness, a spiritual light, and he offers his own light to every mind to help it in its search for truth...Like the sunshine, which permeates all the atmosphere, spreading over land and sea, and yet is enjoyed by each person as though it were for him alone, so the Spirit pours forth his grace in full measure, sufficient for all, and yet is present as though exclusively to everyone who can receive him. To all creatures that share in him he gives a delight limited only by their own nature, not by his ability to give."

*How beautifully put! The Spirit offers his light to us, to each mind, according to our ability to receive him. He wants to show us so many things. He wants to show us how much we are loved by the Father and the Son. He wants to show us how beautiful we are, how much the Father wanted to create us, how the Father designed us perfectly to answer the call He has for us, and how possible it is to become holy and happy. The Spirit wants to light up our hearts with party lights, full of joy and excitement and hope. He wants us to see the Father and the Son in all their glory, loving us! And this is just the beginning!

The Spirit truly does shine on each one of us as if He is meant for each one alone. Each individual is uttermost in the mind of the Spirit. He loves each one of us as if we were the only person alive! And it is this love that actually is the Light. Love lights up our minds like fireworks. Love makes sense out of everything. God is love and he loves us, infinitely. That is true light!

So, as we approach Pentecost, let's take up Our Lady's offer and ask for the light of Truth and of the Holy Spirit. I hope we can endure the joy!

In Jesus and Mary and the Holy Spirit and the Father!!!!

Medjugorje: Message from Our Lady :June 2, 2019

Mirjiana Soldo greets Our Lady today!

June 2, 2019
Dear Family of Mary!
Here is the June 2, 2019 message from Our Lady:

Dear children, only a pure and an open heart will make it such that you may truly come to know my Son and that all those who do not know His love may come to know it through you. Only love will make you comprehend that it is stronger than death because true love conquered death and made it so that death not exist.

My children, forgiveness is the most exalted form of love. You, as apostles of my love, must pray that you be strong in spirit and that you could comprehend and forgive. You, apostles of my love, by understanding and forgiveness, are giving an example of love and mercy. To be able to comprehend and forgive is a gift for which it is necessary to pray, and to nurture it.

By forgiveness you are showing that you know how to love. Just look, my children, how the Heavenly Father loves you with a great love, with understanding, forgiveness and justice-how He gives me, the Mother of your hearts, to you. And here I am among you to bless you with a motherly blessing, to call you to prayer, to fasting-to tell you to believe, to hope, to forgive, to pray for your shepherds, and above all to love without limits.
My children, follow me. My way is the way of peace and love, the way of my Son. It is the way that leads to the triumph of my heart. Thank you.  (June 2, 2019)
