Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary, please pray for us.

Yesterday we celebrated the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

In a book I’m reading – God’s Final Effort, by John M. Haffert; he talks about the Consecration to the Two Hearts in chapter seven saying:

Not Equal, but One Flame of Love. St. John Eudes was… born in France in 1601, forty-six years before St. Margaret Mary Alacoque [Miraculous Medal]… [and] was perhaps the first to speak of the “Sacred Heart of Mary”.

He composed the Mass and office of the Immaculate Heart and the [same] for the Sacred Heart… he joined the two hearts [and]…spoke of them as one. [These] words might give us pause. But the reality…is transcendentally beautiful. It is the realization that the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are two flames which God has joined together into one great flame of love for Him and for men.  And we poor creatures, can plunge the little love we have into that great flame where it, too, become one with it.

…we, as humans, identifying ourselves with the human heart of Mary, enter into that Flame of Love to be truly one with the Heart of Our Savior. The words of Our Lord…seem to say,… “I have given you this admirable Heart of My dear Mother to be one with yours, so that you might have a heart worthy of Mine.” [Thus] this is not a matter of our choice, but of God’s choice.  This is not a matter of our planning…[intimacy] with our Father God, but His.

We deserve chastisement. God’s final effort to save us is through LOVE.

~Pp31-32 (emphasis added)

Wake up! The time has come, the time is NOW.

Wake up! The time has come, the time is NOW.

Change is happening rather quickly.  Agendas are being pushed through congress with very little concern about what the majority of people want.  Our Country is quickly becoming something between a dictatorship and communist regime.

Persecution is imminent especially with the Hate Crime Legislation placing restrictions on what pastors and priests can say from the pulpit – punishable by law.  Hey does that sound familiar… Many are caving in to the agenda today and playing God.

So where does that leave us on this wonderful day?  Wondering when and how soon, can we hold fast to the faith, how many will be lost?  I believe the answers to those questions might be: Soon, if you Keep your Eye’s on Jesus He will help us through, and there will be – as there has already been – those who will “go with the flow” and not pay attention to the “approaching rapids” and somehow close their eyes and take a deep breath with the thoughts “maybe I’ll wake up okay?”

Those who are already in The Bastion are prepared and we pray daily for the graces necessary to see the deception so blatant in this day.  But for those who are unawares, we pray especially for their salvation – for their eternal souls.

Happy Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart!  Her Immaculate Heart WILL triumph with her Eternal Son’s Sacred Heart right at her side.  BELIEVE. PRAY, Pray, pray!

“Dear children! The Most High is giving me the grace that I can still be with you and to lead you in prayer towards the way of peace. Your heart and soul thirst for peace and love, for God and His joy. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray and in prayer you will discover the wisdom of living. I bless you all and intercede for each of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.” ~Monthly Message, Our Lady of Medjugorje’s June 25, 2014.

The same scripture verse has been going around inside my head for last two weeks:

When people say, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape. ~1Thes 5:4

With the elections now completed, and the House regained with many more seats in the Senate, many people believe we are on the verge of obtaining “peace” within our wayward country and government.  I think this sentiment is foolish and foolhardy.

On that note, I’m re-posting an earlier writing that tackles the Coming Passion of Christ – that which His Church must undergo in order to be purified.  Make no mistake about it, IT IS IMMINENT.   One day will seem like another and then, as “travail comes upon a woman with child”, destruction of all we know will arrive on our doorsteps.  One just has to look at the headlines of trusted news sources – persecution against the Christian Church is gaining in momentum. 

And yet, fear not!  The sooner it begins, the sooner it is over with!

We must remain vigilant, “sober, and ever watchful” through it all, because the enemy is “like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour” (1Peter 5:8).  Saint Peter also continues on to remind us what I have said above about the sooner this begins it will also end:

9 Resist him [Satan], firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. 10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. 11 To Him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1Peter 5: 9-11

The Coming Passion of Christ’s Church in True Imitation of Him:

The Progression…

As our world continues to move along its path of self-created destruction, it is also moving towards a great renewal AFTER this current age has been purified.  From here on out, take what I write with a definite “grain of salt”.  I am no prophet, but I can see “the signs of the times”, as anyone who has eyes are able to see.  But I am also granted the opportunity to notice changes in religious art that give significant confirmations in those “signs of the times”.

Do any of you have one of the Divine Mercy pictures?  My particular favorite is the first one that was produced.  It’s very mystical in nature and has Jesus literally appearing out of the darkness of a room – or in this case, the religious cell of St. Faustina.  Well, I have my enlarged picture hanging on my wall, always in plain view of my bed, so that before I sleep I can say, “Jesus, I trust in You!”  And when I wake up, I see Him there and I am reminded that, “Jesus, I trust in You!”

Lately this picture has acquired a new image within it.  Just below Jesus’ right hand, next to the flow of His blood, a dragon’s head has appeared…hmmm…near Christ’s blood…martyrdom? [Just a quick aside, I have noticed that the head of the dragon has moved considerably closer to the stream of Christ’s Blood – as the arrow from the original picture is now pointing at the “neck” of the dragon.]
