Welcome Year 2017!

We are entering today the year that marks the centenary of the astounding prophetic apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima one hundred year ago. It’s been a hundred years of violent turmoil for the world and stormy upheaval for the Church. We all long for the prophetic peace promised by Our Lady at Fatima on July 13th, 1917. She asked us then and she asks us now: “Pray the Rosary Every Day”. Today we celebrate the Divine Motherhood of Our Lady. At Fatima, Our Lady revealed that Divine Motherhood in an extraordinary way, through three small children, Lucia, Francesco & Jacinta. As a mother, she warned us to stop offending God, to pray and to make sacrifice. This was her recipe for peace in the world and the means of preventing the loss of many souls in Hell.

On this New Year’s Day of 2017, let us consecrate ourselves and our families to the Compassionate Heart of our Divine Mother Mary. In that Heart we shall find comfort and protection. In His last dying breath, our beloved Saviour Jesus gave us the gift of His own Mother, through St. John the Apostle. Like St. John, let us take Her to our homes today.

 

 1916-2016:

As we leave 2016, we remember the men, women and children, who suffered and died for our freedom. Let us never forget our ancestors were true to the Faith and died for it. As we leave the Centenary celebrations behind us, let us go forward with Jesus and Mary, they are the true source of our freedom and our future hope and security.

 

 Confronting the Devil’s Power:

The following is a quotation from the address of Pope Paul VI, to a general audience on November 15th, 1972: The Pope began his address with a simple question: “What are the Church’s greatest needs at this present time?” Few would have anticipated what the Pope was to say next. “Don’t be surprised at our answer and don’t write it off as simplistic or even superstitious: One of the Church’s greatest needs is to be defended against the evil we call the devil.”Pope Paul VI went on to examine the evil in the world and to discuss something of the nature of evil, which led him to make a point about the devil, a point clear, unambiguous and unequivocal. He said, “Evil is not merely an absence of something, but an active force, a living spiritual being, that is perverted and that perverts others. It is a terrible reality, mysterious and frightening …. He is a malign, clever seducer, who knows how to make his way into us through the senses, the imagination and the libido, through Utopian logic, or through disordered social contact in the give and take of our activities, so that he can bring about in us deviations that are all the more harmful, because they seem to conform to our physical and mental make-up or to our profound and instinctive aspirations.”

 

 

 

Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you do. I give you my tongue to speak your words. I give you my mind that you may think in me. I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. Above all, I give you my heart that you may love in me, your Father, and all mankind. I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me. Amen.
