    How terrible for those without Faith or for those far from God. How to find meaning, reason, purpose in it all? It must seem like the end of our world.

    I heard of a guy from our Parish who died from the Bug in a New York Hospital yesterday. He was a, 'Proud,' homosexual who brought his African American , 'husband', back to Ireland with him a few years back on a visit.

    I suppose he died in that big hospital on his own.

    Prayers for him, prayers for all.

    This will all go in the history books. A huge Cross for all.

    (I hear if you have AIDS the Bug is a death blow)

    For those without faith and get sick, please pray for their deathbed conversion. In the end, nothing else matters at all.
    Our eternity is the only thing we might have control over. Pray for our loved ones, no matter their...and our own sinfulness, that in the end, we die with faith and repentance.

    Exactly. I remember praying about this in the early 1980's knowing it was coming but not knowing when or how. I was taking my cues back then from Malachi Martin who was convinced Our Lady would come before 2000. He kept saying that he was keeping his eyes on the sky. He said if it didn't happen then it would be much later. He also said that among satanists they had their own prophecy that if they did not seize control of the papacy by 1999 then they had lost. We know JPII never agreed to resign but held fast to the end. He got us over the finish line. I sometimes wonder if all this horror and storm and drang is the serpent furiously lashing his tale as ouf Lady crushes his head. Look at what had come to light since DJT's election. The evil empire has been exposed and there are those saying that under the radar it is being dismantled but it is a furious battle.

    I just never imagined it quite this way. So it is like a waking dream.

    Jesus once in agony have mercy on those who are in their last agony and will die this day. Especially those in danger of losing their souls.

    Yes, I have been thinking a lot about this today. I must pray and pray and pray and pray. Like the little Children of Fatima.

    Pray, pray, pray.

    It reminds me of what Jesus said about reading the Signs of the Times. I would have imagined that if we were people of prayer we would have seen this coming.

    Although many devout, good Catholics did not. I have no idea quite why or how they missed it.

    For instance I had one very good Catholic friend, Sean who must have visited Medugorje more times than the visionaries.:D They should have made him Mayor.:)

    Yet when I spoke to him about the ten secrets and coming Chastisements he looked at me as if I was nuts. I have no idea how he missed this stuff, but he did.

    Well he knows right now.;)

    SACRIFICE PRAYER

    Sacrifices

    A great "secret" of converting sinners is to make sacrifices for them, as well as to pray for them. Our Lady Of Fatima said: "Many souls go to Hell because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them," And the holy Cure of Ars said that the conversion of sinners "begins with prayer and ends with penance."

    But whereas "penance" and "sacrifice" sound frightening to some people and we may not like these words, yet they are the key to obtaining Heaven for poor sinners. If we are frightened of penance, we can begin by making one little sacrifice per day-----perhaps eating something we do not like, or drinking water instead of pop, or making ourselves wait a half hour or so to take a drink when we are thirsty. These are little forms of "fasting". Some sacrifices we are obliged to make anyway, but we can offer them for sinners: examples of these are being patient with a trying person or turning off an immodest TV, program. These sacrifices will be presents for Our Lady, the precious coin she can use to buy back souls that are headed for Hell.

    It seems that God loves to "delegate" His work, He has given it to us to be the "secondary" causes of His work, including the salvation of our "brother" and our "neighbor." And though His Blood poured out on Calvary was sufficient to save all souls, He requires that we, the living branches on Him, the Vine, ask for and even "activate" its application to those souls by our prayers and our sacrifices.

    At Fatima both the Angel and Our Lady asked for sacrifices for sinners. They said, "Sacrifice yourself." This is done largely by generously making individual sacrifices.

    The Angel of Fatima, too, told the three children to "Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High . . . Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners . . . Above all, accept and bear with submission the sufferings which the Lord will send you."

    If Our Lady and the Angel ask for prayers and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners, this means that they actually intend to save sinners if prayers and sacrifices are offered up. We must therefore send these up with confidence in Our Lady's intention and power to save the dying. After receiving the above-mentioned message of the Angel, the children were given to understand "how pleasing it [sacrifice] is to Him and how, on account of it, He grants the grace of conversion to sinners." It does work! This is the true recipe for saving souls, even those who are dying and have very little time left.



    OUR LADY OF FATIMA SAID: SACRIFICE YOURSELVES FOR SINNERS AND SAY MANY TIMES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU MAKE SOME SACRIFICE:


    O JESUS, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners,
    and in reparation for the sins committed against
    the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    DECADE PRAYER

    (To be said after the Glory Be at the end of
    each decade of the Rosary)

    O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell,
    lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need of Thy mercy.

    ANGEL'S PRAYER

    (Given to the three children by the Angel who
    preceded Our Lady's first appearance to them.)


    MOST Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly.
    I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity
    of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world,
    in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference
    by which He is offended. And through the infinite merit
    of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
    I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.
