One hundred years ago in a small village in the mountains of Portugal, unknown to any but those who lived on its rocky slopes, the great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy visited three, innocent children.  One year before the apparitions of Our Blessed Mother, the Angel of Peace came to the children.  The Angel said that God has designs of grace and good for them and they were to prepare themselves with prayers and sacrifices for the great gift of receiving her visitations.

It is important to note that wherever Our Lady appears in the world, throughout the ages, she asks for only these things: Prayer of the Holy Rosary and Repentance of life.  The Holy Rosary is a great gift of Almighty God and brings us to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, without Whose shedding of Blood we can  not be saved.

Many believe that this year will bring about worldwide, political changes, particularly as far as Russia is concerned.  Let us pray deeply and with constancy the Holy Rosary.  One can not pray the Rosary on a regular basis and remain in sin!  Our God has given too many graces to this most Catholic of devotions to have a sinner remain obstinate in the way of sin.  How amazing are the graces of God to His children.

Pray for the tortured; pray for the imprisoned; pray for the homeless; pray for the lonely; pray for the forgotten; pray for those who are in trouble; pray for those who have no one to pray for them; pray for your family and friends; pray for yourself, but PRAY, PRAY AND THEN PRAY SOME MORE!

Let us take this opportunity to forgive all those who have done us wrong.  This is pleasing to God and brings His blessing upon our little lives.  Our Blessed Mother promised that, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph and those who do not believe, will believe.  My Immaculate Heart is the way that will lead you to God.”  Holy Scripture tells us that “Mary kept in mind all these things, pondering them in her heart.”  Also, the prophet Simeon said, “Thine own soul a sword shall pierce, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed!”  How can this prophesy direct from the Holy Gospel, be fulfilled if there is not devotion to Holy Mary?  Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us who have recourse to thee.  Lead us to Jesus now and at the hour of our death.  Amen
