AED I saw another post and lo and behold from 2013 the hour of Grace was mentioned in more detail. I now realise I had the format all wrong; but had acted on what was told to me, so pray Blessed Mother will understand and be gracious to us in our efforts to please God, and beg for His Grace through the intercession of our Heavenly Mother. I have also found more information in a newsletter sent to me, it only arrived today after lunch from The Immaculate House of Prayer, Gurtavalla South, Doon, Co. Limerick. Ireland. And it appears Our Lady appeared as the Mystical Rose in 1947 to an Italian woman called Pierena Gilli, a nurse. The apparitions lasted from November 24th 1946 to December 8th 1947. The place was Montichiari. Hope this will help in your research. Julia has gone and done it again, always getting the information botched. Sigh. ======================================================== I copied and now paste all of what was in the post by SteveD from 2013 on this Forum as follows; (From the Friends of the Suffering Souls 6/12/2013) Feast of the Immaculate Conception December 8th Our Lady said as follows: "It is my wish that every year, on 8th December, at noon, the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be celebrated. Many divine and bodily graces will be received through this devotion. Our Lord, my Divine Son Jesus, will send His overflowing mercy if good people will pray continuously for their sinful brother.... it is my wish that the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be made known and spread throughout the world. If anyone is unable to visit his church, yet will pray at home, he will also receive graces through me.... will find a secure heavenly ladder and receive protection and grace through my motherly heart." Our Lady promised she will hear any prayer we make at this time (noon to 1 pm). THE REQUEST OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER FOR THE HOUR OF GRACE: Day and time of the Hour of Grace: December 8th, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, to be started at 12:00 noon and continuing until 1:00 p.m. for one full hour of prayer. During this hour, the person making the Hour of Grace either at home or at church must put away all distractions (do not answer the telephones, or answer any doors, or do anything but totally concentrate on your union with God during this special Hour of Grace). Begin the Hour of Grace by praying three times the 51st Psalm with out-stretched arms. (Psalm 51 appears below). The rest of the Hour of Grace may be spent in silent communication with God meditating upon the Passion of Jesus, saying the Holy Rosary, praising God in your own way, or by using favorite prayers, singing hymns, meditating upon other psalms, etc. Please copy and distribute this message. Remember to pray for your country during this hour. The Blessed Virgin has requested that her important message be sent throughout the entire world. Please help her Mission: that all souls be drawn to God, and that Jesus will be loved in every heart. This is the perpetual song of her heart. Let it also be yours. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ PSALM 51 Have mercy on on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant compassion blot out my offence. Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me. For I know my offence; my sin is always before me. Against you alone have I sinned; I have done such evil in your sight that you are just in your sentence, blameless when you condemn. True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me. Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my innermost being teach me wisdom. Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me whiter than snow. Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt. A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your holy spirit. Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing spirit. I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return to you. Rescue me from death, God, my saving God, that my tongue may praise your healing power. Lord, open my lips; my mouth will proclaim your praise. For you do not desire sacrifice; a burnt offering you would not accept. My sacrifice, God, is a broken spirit; God, do not spurn a broken, humbled heart. Make Zion prosper in your good pleasure; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Then you will be pleased with proper sacrifice, burnt offerings and holocausts; then bullocks will be offered on your altar. End of Steve's post.========================================= You know, I have posted this Consecration here because the heading says Consecration, and the thread is about the Rosary for Ireland on 26th November 2017. For what it is worth, I have done both. That is joined with the Rosary on 26th November and offered the Consecration to Jesus through Mary after 33 days preparation ready for 8th December. And also for clarity, the special Grace for 8th December is yet another chance to gain Grace from Heaven if we fulfil Our Lady's request and offer Psalm 51 three times with our arms raised, like Divine Mercy Chaplet, is what it says in the newsletter from Ireland. The newsletter also says we should spend the whole hour from noon until one O'clock in prayer part of which is repeating Psalm 51 3 times. Hopefully someone will be here to remind us all of what we need to do to fulfil Blessed Mothers request, and get it right next year God Willing.
