MaryTV.tv

About twenty four years ago, I took my first pilgrimage to Medjugorje before I was even a Catholic. I took at least six subsequent pilgrimages to Medjugorje. It was only about two months ago that I learned about MaryTV.tv. I am totally hooked. It is my all time favorite website. It is hosted by a lovely, adorable couple, Dennis and Cathy, who broadcast their programs from their basement!!! First of all, they bring the messages, Our Lady of Peace has been giving to the village in Bosnia and then to the world, alive!!! Cathy often reads a message, given by Our Lady now for 38 years, in between the  decades of the rosary, based on a theme.

Yesterday, I received a huge blessing from St. Joseph during the daily rosary broadcast on line from their basement studio. The rosary comes alive during the praying of the rosary with Dennis and Cathy, most likely because Our Lady, Queen of Peace and Queen of Divine Mercy joins us as we pray. It is so anointed and truly heavenly, as is Medjugorje. During the five decades, there is live transmission of pilgrimages praying on the various mountain sites of the village.

Some days, I listen and watch the daily English mass, which is always very good. Occasionally, I watch and listen to the evening program of the rosary and Adoration from St. James.  With all the challenges facing these United States and the world these days, it is very, very important to have a half hour or an hour of peace, blessings, love, and joy, thanks to the presence of Our Lady in Medjugorje daily, and present throughout the broadcast on MaryTV. The papal envoy to Medjugorje H. Luigi Pezzuto, the Nuncio of Bosnia, addressed Mary as the Queen of Peace and God’s Divine Mercy!!!

In the meantime, mark your calendars on March 17, 2020, to begin the “33 Days to Greater Glory – A Total Consecration to the Father through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John” written by Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC. The consecration to God the Father will be done on The Feast of The Divine Mercy, the Sunday after Easter, April 19, 2020. Fr. Chris and Fr. Michael will join you as you make the consecration to God the Father via EWTN before the Divine Mercy outdoor Mass at Stockbridge, Mass. at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy.

So too, God the Father will be giving a triple blessings for those gathered at the Shrine of Holy Love outside Cleveland, Ohio on that same day. If you cannot be at three places at once, your own parish, Stockbridge, and Holy Love, God the Father has suggested that you send your guardian angel to receive the blessing for you.  Since Dennis and Cathy will be in Medjugorje for The Feast of the Divine Mercy, I am sure that this is a VERY , very important day throughout the world where untold blessings will abound.

In case you missed the starting date for the Consecration to St. Joseph, written in the recently published book by Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, to be made on the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19th, you can begin the next consecration to be said on May 1, 2020, The Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

So, let us begin again. Let us start fresh and anew, this First Sunday of Lent, 2020, and turn our attention to Our Lord, God the Father, our Savior, God the Son, the Holy Spirit, His Spouse, Our Lady, Queen of Peace and God’s Divine Mercy, along with her faithful husband, St. Joseph.  These are historic days. Lift your hearts up to the Lord!  Sing Him a song a praise and thanksgiving.  Her Immaculate Heart will triumph!!!! Praised be Jesus, now and forever. Amen.

 

WORDS FROM JESUS

It is very important at this time to read wordsfromjesus.com available on line. These words were given to an American seer, Jennifer.  After St. John Paul II saw her messages, the Vatican Polish Secretariat of State, Monsignor Pawed said, “Spread these messages to the world, any way you can.”

The following quotes are taken from words given to Jennifer:

2-15-07  Recite the St. Michael prayer each hour. Pray for protection of the Holy Father for my son is soon to be surrounded by dangerous  missiles.

2-16-07 St. Michael said, “Make peace with those who have hurt you.”

2-23-97  “Disease will come forth and culminate. My people and your homes will be a safe haven until my angels guide you to your place of refuge.”

2-24-07 War will break out.  West of this nation collapse by earthquake and the East washed by a wave of great magnitude.

8-12-07  Call upon the Holy Spirit each time you gather.  You must always extend mercy….. Speak of the brown scapular, pass them out.  Meditate on my Passion. Turn to My Mother.

8-18-07  Pray for Russia and China………for their agenda is one that will bring much devestation around the world.

8-18-07  Say the Chaplet of My Most Divine Mercy. Recite  it for all the souls who are not prepared to meet Me.

Cities will be washed away and some will come to a crumble…..

9-23-07  The Blessed Mother:  …..spend one hour each day in quiet prayer.  Examine your conscience.  Unite yourself to the suffering of my Son Jesus, for you are soon to be in a time of war.  This world is soon to be at war and your country will suffer immensely.

1-9-08 Jesus:  ….this is a time of seclusion………

4-18-08…….Make sure that you have all the preparations in your home for I say these changes will come forth at an hour that will catch many off guard.  As you begin to see changes in your currency, you will find greater wars rise within areas around you.  Neighbor will be against neighbor and plagues will come forth.

4-28-08  I warn you that greater turbulence is about to fall upon your country.  For in the Middle East a great darkness lingers and it is a darkness joined by Russian and China., for you do not see what is going on behind closed doors.

5-27-08  ……Great darkness will soon come and cover this earth and seasons will be altered. ………..You will witness catastrophic events.  Many will be wandering in search of food and shelter.  Many will be in search of light in the dark world.  War will rise up and it will collapse your financial abilities in your country for even the rich will be amongst the poor for changes in your currency are soon to come forth.

The West will be shaken to its core and it will awaken the mountains below the sea. My right hand and the seas will rise up for areas that are will no longer be. Gather your food now for you are soon to witness a great plague that will call many to stand before me.

8-10-08   Bind your Rosaries for greater turmoil is going to come. Be aware of Russia and China. Many will seek to condemn you for speaking the truth.  Stay united as a group. Gather often so that I can give greater graces for being obedient to My words.

The preceding quotes are a sample of words that were given to the American seer, Jennifer. They are new to me. This seer was recommended by Mark Mallett on his blog, “The Now Word”.  More messages from heaven given to Jennifer are available on line at wordsfromjesus.com  Remember the repeated words of St. John Paul II:
“Be not afraid.”  Remember the words of Our Lady of Peace at Medjugorje, “Pray, pray, pray.”  Prepare. Be aware. Go to confession. Stay in a state of grace. God bless and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you His peace. Amen

 

 

ODE TO SEA RANCH

What is it about the coastline north of San Francisco in northern Sonoma County and southern Mendocino County? What brought me to California in the first place was hearing about Carmel and Big Sur from the program manager of the radio & television studios at the University of Iowa. I was studying radio-television and speech at SUI in Iowa City. I was overcome with inspiration as my boss described the Monterey Peninsula of Northern California. Within a few months, I had joined a carpool to California with members of a video production of “West Side Story”. The driver submitted the video for his thesis and we four passengers were dancers in his production.

I was so charmed with the description of Big Sur, that when we arrived in San Francisco in June of 1960, I planned to answer an ad in the Chronicle for a job at Big Sur as a waitress. The glitch was the age requirement, 21, and I was a mere 20. What happened next is another story.

I attended the Monterey Jazz Festival in my early days in San Francisco and took a trip to Carmel thrilled with the view of the sunset on the Pacific Ocean from the hotel bar south of Carmel. Later, while married, I attended the Laguna Seca every spring, usually reading Aristotle, or whatever, while everyone else was interested in the loud car race. I remember crying while driving home from Carmel, not wanting to leave and loving it so.

One summer, I took a retreat in a fabulously artistic cabin in the woods south of Big Sur. One summer I attended the Bach Festival in Carmel. Once, I attended a Barmitzva for my doctor friend’s son. More recently, I spent a couple nights in Carmel visiting the Mission Carmel and the Carmelite Convent overlooking the sea.

Along the way, I spent a few nights in the ’60’s and ’70’s at Little River Inn in Mendocino and coped their pancake recipe for years. Then, in 1976, I traveled to Mendocino to attend a Sufi camp where I met Pir, who became my teacher for twenty years. In 1984, I returned to the Mendocino redwoods for another Sufi camp. It was at that camp that I said my very first rosary in tears, pleading for Our Lady’s intercession to avoid a nuclear war. Fourteen years later, I joined the church founded by her Son.

Back in the ’70’s, four of us single women rented a house at Sea Ranch. We were a mixture of Japanese, English, Midwest, and East Coast U.S.A. culture. Then, the sister of one of the four bought a house at Sea Ranch. In the meantime, I met my New England patriot. He fell in love with the Lost Coast and with Sea Ranch. Each summer, we rented a house at Sea Ranch for his much needed vacation. We totally fell in love with “The Wave”, our favorite home at Sea Ranch. Yes, the view and peace of the place was awesome. But also was the fabulous collection of books in the library of this vacation home, along with the c.d. collection. I found the place totally inspiring. I read tons of books, painted at the window overlooking the Pacific, and prepared fabulous dinners from the great collection of recipe books, all the while listening to Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Best of all, the owners had a Wedgewood Stove in the kitchen, which I had learned to admire when I lived in Nevada City, California.

The days at “The Wave” were spent beginning with coffee overlooking the sea followed by daily mass at the stunning Catholic Church in Gualala. After a morning hike down to the cliffs overlooking the sea and lunch at “The Wave”, we would swim in the wonderful pool next to the home of the original sheep ranch. The greatest blessing was the year our front yard at “The Wave” was full of sheep. We were in heaven at last! Homeowners at Sea Ranch welcomed us at their morning game of bolles.

Just today, we learned that the owners of our beloved vacation home have died. James was with U.C. publishing, which accounted for all the wonderful books in their library. Isabelle Clark-Deces was an anthropologist, remembered for her dedication and compassion as a professor of anthropology at Princeton University and director of the Program of South Asian Studies. She died after a fall in Mussoorie, India, where she was leading a Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies Global Seminar. She loved India, as do I!!! She was born in France; I am a Francophile. Her favorite place on earth was Sea Ranch! I wish I had met her! (She probably is related to a famous Russian author, but that is another story.) May God rest her soul, along with the soul of her husband, James. May he be enjoying a ride on his motorcycle in heaven.

Now, I am an armchair traveler, like Poppy, who used to sit in his chair high above Nob Hill and study his atlas, which I now cherish in my painting studio. Years fly by, but memories are enhanced as one contemplates the beauty of God’s creation along the waters of our Pacific Ocean. Jesus, I trust in You. God the Father, I take my hat off to You. What an artist!!!! Alleluia, allella.

75TH ANNIVERSARY OF SIROKI BRIJEG MARTYRS

Two days ago, February 7, 1945, was the 75th anniversary of the thirty Franciscan martyrs at Siroki Brijeg, Bosnia, about one hour outside Medjugorje.
On that day, Commuunist soldiers arrived and said, “God is dead. There is no God. There is not Pope. There is no Church. There is no need of you. You also go out in the world and work.” The Communist asked them to remove their habits. They refused. One angry soldier took the Crucifix and threw it on the floor. He said, “You can now choose either life or death.”

Each of the Franciscan knelt down, embraced the Crucifix and said, “You are my God and my all.” The thirty Franciscans were taken out and slaughtered. Their bodies were burned in a nearby cave. Now, they are buried inside the Franciscan church.

For many years, some of us went out on a bus from Medjugorje to pray the rosary and hear this story from Fr. Jozo, the former pastor of St. James, when the daily apparitions began 38 years ago.

May the martyrs of Siroki Brijeg pray for us. May Our Lady, Queen of Peace and Queen of Divine Mercy, intercede for us. May God have mercy on us. Jesus, I trust in You. May we pray, pray, pray and NOT be afraid. May God in His mercy, through the intercession of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, stop the spread of the Corona virus. May God in His mercy, through the intercession of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, shut down all the bio-chemical warfare labs throughout the world. May God in His mercy, through the intercession of Our Lady of Mercy, root out all agents of death, hatred, and corruption. In God we trust. Jesus, King of Mercy, hear our prayers.

CANDLEMAS – 2020

Today is Sunday, February 2, 2020, The Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, forty days after His birth. Simeon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, takes the Child Jesus in his arms and declares Him as a light of revelation to all nations. (Luke 2:22-38)

The Blessed Virgin stated to Elizabeth Kindelmann, (of Budapest, Hungary, as recorded in her published diary), that she,the Blessed Virgin Mary, wants this day ALSO to be the Feast of the Flame of Love! “On the feast of Candlemas, my beloved sons will introduce the Flame of Love of my Heart in procession, so that in such fashion, it becomes a living fire in the hearts, in the souls.” (The Blessed Virgin Mary to Elizabeth Kindelmann on May 4, 1962.) The celebration includes a candlelight procession, Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the Flame of Love rosary. Also, candles from home can be brought to be blessed.

“Adorn thy bridal-chamber, O Sion, and welcome Christ the King. With loving embrace greet Mary, the very gate of heaven, for she brought to thee the glorious King of new light. Ever Virgin she remaineth, yet in her arms doth bear the Son begotten before the day-star, that Child whom Simeon did take into his arms and proclaimed to the nations as Lord of life and Savior of the world.”

The Feast celebrates the Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple, which is the Fourth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary. Today was especially powerful, as the Feast of the Flame of Love, February 2nd, fell on a Sunday, the Lord’s Day. Traditionally, today’s mass is preceded by the blessing and distribution of candles and a procession with lighted candles; thus it is called Candlemas, using this Prayer of Blessing:

“O Lord Jesus Christ, the true Light the enlighteneth every man cometh into the world, pour forth Thy blessing upon these candles and sanctify them with the light of Thy grace, and mercifully grant that as these lights enkindled with visible fire dispel the darkness of night, our hearts illumined by invisible fire, that is, by the splendor of the Holy Ghost, may be free from every blindness due to vice, so that with clear sight our minds may discern what is pleasing to Thee and profitable to our salvation, so that after the darksome perils of this life, we may deserve to attain to never fading light.”

Then, comes the singing of the Canticle of Simion followed by the First Antiphon: (as done in The Liturgy of the Hours)

“Adorn thy bridal chamber, O Sion, and welcome Christ the King. With loving embrace greet Mary, the very gate of heaven, for she brought to thee the glorious King of new light. Ever Virgin, she remaineth, yet in her arms doth bear the Son begotten before the day-star; that Child whom Simeon did take into his arms and proclaimed to the nations as Lord of life and Savior of the World.”

So, my beloved family, friends, and holy priests, some thought this is Super Bowl Sunday. But hear yea, hear yea, this is Candlemas, the Feast of the Presentation of Christ Jesus, and now the Virgin Mary has declared that it is her wishes to ALSO make it the Feast of the Flame of Love. These wishes were first granted in Hungary and, subsequently, in much of the world. Most of the world, however, does not know of this NEW feast day which is combined with the Feast of the Presentation. May God in His great mercy, may His heralds cry out, shouting the good news, that this new feast day is in honor of the Flame of Love of the heart of Mary that will blind Satan and her Immaculate Heart will be triumphant. Spread the good news!!!! Learn more by reading the diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann. For more information, flameoflove.org or flameoflove.usa

Blessings to all!!!! Some may have thought this was just Super Bowl Sunday. Instead, it is a Feast Day with universal, eternal consequences. Jesus, I trust in You. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us. Come Holy Spirit, fall upon us. Amen.

Yes, the moment Father Antony greeted us this morning before mass, I felt a lit firecracker lighting my eternal cracker! As the strong wind almost blew us away, I shouted with glee to on-coming parishioners, “It is the Holy Spirit!!!”

WALK FOR LIFE – 2020

My career as an armchair political activist began after my first Walk for Life in San Francisco, California at the rally across from the Ferry Building, when I heard an abortion survivor walk onto the stage with a limp. She told the terrifying story of swimming in a saline solution and then left to die after a botched abortion. Then, she told us that Senator Obama had voted, while serving in Illinois, to leave such a child alone to die on the table. He was now running for president of the United States of America, for the first time. She had, indeed, survived an abortion, but was living with a number of health challenges, not withstanding a very strong pro-life agenda.

My next memory on the subject was sitting at a Wing’s meeting in the East Bay. The president announced that no political speeches were to be made at the meeting. Then, she took off her jacket to proudly display her T-shirt that showed the smiling face of the presidential candidate, Obama!!!! I went home and wrote an e-mail to all the members of Wings, explaining why a member of the Roman Catholic Church could not vote for a pro-abortion candidate for president, documenting my statement with Catholic teachings.

Next, I received a call from one of the members of Wings telling me that they were going to enforce the gag rule on me. I was never allowed again to use the e-mail addresses of the members of Wings for any issues, moral or otherwise. I removed myself from the woman’s group.

Meanwhile, I participated in a number of Walks for Life in San Francisco. My husband walked with me the last time I was able to walk. Currently, it is not an option, but my prayer intention to end abortion is a daily habit. Scroll forward to yesterday, January 24, 2020, when I spent three or four hours watching the Walk For Life in Washington, D.C. on EWTN. It was reported today on EWTN that 250,000 people marched in Washington, D.C. for the annual Walk for Life. Suddenly, a parade of black cars were visible driving into the rally area. Then, Vice-President Pence spoke via satellite from Rome where he had just spent over an hour with Pope Francis. Next, the President of the United States of America walked onto the stage wearing a red tie. He gave a heart-warming speech saying that life brings love to a family. He is the most pro-life president ever in the history of the United States.

Today, January 25, 2020, is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. On this day, the 16th annual Walk for Life West Coast took place in San Francisco, California. The Archbishop of San Francisco invited the Bishop of Portland, Oregon to speak and pray at the opening rally, as our Archbishop was in Rome. A rape victim spoke at the rally. She was raped when she was a junior in college. She decided not to have an abortion. She decided to give her child up for adoption. She decided to call her son Nathan. When she called the adopting parents, they told her that they had picked the same name! She kept the baby boy for six days. Then, he went home with his adopted parents, the Sullivan family. Later, the rape victim married and had two boys. Her first son, Nathan, is looking after his two brothers as they are attending college in his home town. The mother has been happily married for 25 years. Nathan spoke to us after his mother finished speaking. He said that some people are against abortion except for a case of rape. In such a case, Nathan said, they are talking about me!!!!

Fr. Frank Pavone, president of Priests for Life, also spoke at the rally. He said that Planned Parenthood is donating 45 million dollars to the 2020 election. He also said that they are planning to open their star-ship facility at 1522 Bush Street near Van Ness Avenue, spending seven million dollars. Fortunately, Our good Archbishop is planning a facility to help women with unplanned pregnancies and infertility to be located a few door from the Planned Parenthood facility on Bush Street. Donations can be made to Bella. see: Archdiocese of San Francisco for more information.

Of course, the media did not cover the Walk for Life in D.C., except for FOX television, which aired the entire event. EWTN said this morning that the New York Times did mention it. Mainline television ignored the gathering of 250,000 people at the Nation’s capital, except for a moment when they said that Trump showed up to the event in order to off-set a negative article in a religious magazine, saying they were removing their support of our president.

So, if you have never walked for life, I highly recommend it! If you have never watched a Walk For Life on EWTN, it is second best. Both walking for life and watching the walks for life on television are extremely inspiring. Walks for Life are popping up all over the globe. There has been a Walk For Life for the past ten years in Rome. If there is not one in Hawaii, I suggest that my friend’s grandson starts one, with the help of my cousin!!!

So, get on board, the train to LIFE, not death!!! Give LIFE a chance!!!!! God created that embryo in the womb. He knew its name before it was born. Please join the Forty Days for Life by praying outside a Planned Parenthood facility. Please pray a rosary with the intention of stopping abortion. Please, please. Listen to God the Father on holylove.org where he spoke this week to the visionary about abortion. Wake up America! Wake up, world!!! Walk for Life!!! Pray for Life!!! God have mercy. Christ have mercy. Jesus, I trust in You. Immaculate Mary, pray for the unborn. Amen

RETURN TO ORDER

Today is a national holiday in the U.S.A. in honor of Martin Luther King. It is also the day of a peaceful demonstration of more than 50,000 demonstrators in Richmond, Virginia who are peacefully protesting the threat of the Second Amendment. I just returned from an overnight in the Land of Apple, where the Pilgrimage Statue of Our Lady of Fatima was venerated in a private home, along with the praying of the rosary and a talk on American Needs Fatima.

Today, I listened to a book written by John Horvat II and narrated by Dude Walker entitled “Return to Order – Where We’ve Been, How We Got Here, and Where We Need to Go”. This book is available free by calling 855-861-8420 or going on line to http://www.ReturnToOrder.org, or writing America Needs Fatima, P.O. Box 341, Hanover, PA 17331. More information is also available at ANF@ANF.org and at http://www.ANF.org The following is an example of some of the chapter titles, to give you an idea of the substance of the book:

Chapter 14 – Absence of the Sublime

Chapter 15 – Rule of Money

Chapter 16 – Rejecting False Alternatives at the Crossroads

Chapter 17 – Returning to an Economy without Frenetic Intemperance. which dealt with subjects such as a.) No Illusions; b.) Resist writing off our Nation. Resist isolation. Unite. Defend what is good. c.) Defend the excellent values of our country; d.) Adherence of a moral code based on the Ten Commandments. Family, property, etc. e.) Christian principles.

Chapter 18 – A Salvic Debate Becoming a Nation, Becoming a People. Polarization of the U.S.A. Two Americas. A nation based upon God and country. Cultural War, defending family and defending the unborn. Principles around which we can rally: yearning for Gothic architecture and Gregorian Chant. Return to order where everything functions according to natural law.

Chapter 19 – Preliminary Objections: Can Medieval Economy Be a Solution? a.) Economics is limited. b.) Economics must be subject to ethics. c.) Respecting the human aspect, as seen in the Medieval guilds. Error of Modern Economy: we have separated economics from moral philosophy and ethics.

Chapter 20 – What Might Have Been, What Could Still Be – Medieval industrial revolution. The first society to abandon slavery.

Chapter 21 – Organic Society: An Unknown Ideal. A social order based on natural law and the Gospel, working for the Common Good.

In two days, the Senate will begin its impeachment hearings. All the while, plans are afoot to start violence in various cities and then blame President Trump for this.

Let us get down on our knees and pray for peace. Peace in our families, peace in our State of California. Peace in D.C. Peace in our country. Peace in the world.
Then, let us Walk for Life!!!

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and the sins of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.

Our Lady of Fatima. Pray for us. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners. Spread the effect of the grace of the Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the time of our death. Amen.
