Why another story on Our Lady?
another story on Mother Mary? Our question is, Why not another story
on Mary? Where is our greatest hope? Where have been our greatest
victories? Who really loves you? Who will take care of you if you
but reach out and ask for help? If you want to know how much Our
Lady loves you, and is there for you, read the chapters of this
book. Meditate on them. Think about what your needs are. Ask for
them. Don't just think about them; get down on your knees and plead
for them! Mother Mary is there for you. She listens to you. She
has great Friends in high places. If anyone can do it, She can.
If anyone will do it, She will.
What this story and our first story on Mother Mary have been saying
is simply, when Her children are in danger, Mother Mary, great and
loving Mother that She is, comes to give us hope, to protect us
from the enemy, to save us. Read the Apparitions in our first book
on Mary; you will see Mother Mary comes at the most crucial times
in our lives.
For example in Mexico City (Tepeyac Hill), in 1531, Our Lady of
Guadalupe came, averted holocaust, stopped the merciless sacrifices
of innocents to a blood-thirsty pagan god, and created Family.
In Paris, in 1830, She came to a little postulant and gave her and
us hope for the world - "Come to the foot of the Altar, great
graces will be poured out to those who ask for them."
In La Salette, in 1846, She wept and prophesied what disaster would
come to pass if we did not convert.
In Lourdes, in 1858, Mother Mary came and introduced Herself as
the Immaculate Conception, affirming Her son - Blessed Pope Pius
IX - and his dogma of the Immaculate Conception, which dispelled
the heresy of Pantheism.
In Pontmain, in 1871, She came and ended the Franco-Prussian War;
She gave us hope.
In Knock, in 1879, although She said nothing, She spoke volumes:
Protect the Eucharist. If you destroy the Eucharist; you destroy
the Church. Protect the Word, which is in danger. If you destroy
the Word, you destroy the Church. Protect the family; if you destroy
the family, you destroy the Church, you destroy the world.
In Fatima, in 1917, Our Lady warned that unless we convert, Russia
would take over the world. And but for Her precious son, Pope John
Paul II, this growling bear would have done just that. In Fatima,
She warned us that unless we change, many souls would be lost; and
that unless we pray and sacrifice many would go to hell. Did we
Our Lady, 16 years after Fatima, appeared in Belgium and again warned
us. Did we listen? Do we listen?
Mother Mary went to Belgium and warned us; and in less than a month,
the path to total world domination was paved. The world had not
listened to Mother Mary and the table of contents of the devil's
book to hell was getting near full. Hitler became chancellor to
Germany and began his conquest or scorch campaign. World War I was
supposed to be the war to end all wars, and here it was, and another
World War was on the horizon. World War II was upon us, before we
knew it. Everything moved so fast. People were not praying, not
yet. They thought the answer was accommodation and compromise. Powerful
countries compromised smaller nations. After all, it was not them.
The enemy was not threatening them. All of a sudden, it was their
turn. Did we then go down on our knees?
When the Lord comes, people will be so busy running to the malls,
trying to buy up happiness, they will miss Him and His salvation
completely. Is that why Mother Mary keeps on appearing? In our last
book on Mary, we traced these circumstances that weave a pattern
of salvation if heeded or destruction if not. We didn't listen!
In this story, we are tracing, once again, the many times Our Lady
has always come in dire times. We have come close to holocaust once
again. My father was a student of ancient history. He told his children
that sadly no one learns from history and keeps on repeating it
- the ancient becoming the modern. Those who ignore history are
doomed to repeat it. Our Lady has been appearing and appearing,
begging us to return to Jesus and His Church. Are we listening?
What can we do?
More than anyone on earth, our Pope understands the seriousness
and gravity of the crisis in the world. Having lived through one
of the most tragic World Wars in the history of mankind, and then
domination by a godless despot, our Pope knows the only way to peace
is on our knees, pleading with Our Lord to intervene with the Father.
There is no doubt that the enemy of God is lining up all his troops
in a last desperate attempt to drag all God's children to hell,
to burn with him through all eternity. But he has powerful adversaries
to stop him from accomplishing his deadly plan: Mother Mary and
Her Pope John Paul II.
Knowing more than he dare disclose, a Pope has once more come to
the front line and asked the world to pray the Rosary. And if we
do what he says, victory will be ours, war will be averted and violence
will cease. Then, perhaps, at long last, all who inhabit the earth,
".... shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears
into pruning hooks; One nation shall not raise its sword against
another, nor shall they train for war again." And only then,
"....the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard
shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall browse
together, with a little child to lead them."
Why did the Pope declare 2003 the Year of the Rosary? It is time
for us to get down on our knees and, as they did in the Philippines
in 1987, fight fire with the Rosary and petitions to the Mother
of God, Mary Most Holy.
Mothers don't want war! Mary is foremost our Mother and the Mother
of all mankind. Jesus gave Her to us all, at the foot of the Cross.
She weeps when She sees Her children slaughtered.
Can change come about? There has been more than one holocaust threatening
God's children - the slaughter of the innocents. More Americans
have been killed in the abortion clinics than in all the wars we
have fought, combined!
At a given point early in 1993, it seemed as if the plight of the
unborn was a lost cause. How would we explain this to our children
and grandchildren and great-grandchildren? Would they be able to
make any sense out of not invaders, but mothers killing their own
flesh and blood? What would we say?
But then, when all reason had failed, and it seemed as if the senseless,
horrible murder of the unborn would never end, a few people went
and prayed the Rosary outside of abortion clinics, and slowly but
surely, change came about. The Pro-choice contingency has complained
bitterly that there are fewer and fewer abortions being performed
each year. What did we do? We turned to Mother Mary. What can we
do now? Turn to Mary.
So we come back to the question we posed at the very beginning of
this chapter. Why another story on Mary? After reading what we have
just said to you, it should be very obvious. Remember Who you're
appealing to. Mary has been with us, since the time of Genesis,
when God planned our redemption through the Fiat of a Woman. Even
as one woman was sinning, causing God to close the Gates of Heaven,
God had in His Mind the Woman He would use to open them once again.
In God's Eye, She was there for us then; She's here for us now;
She will always be for us.
Read on and learn what Mother Mary is saying to you. Pick up your
Rosary and meditate on the Life of Jesus and Mary. All the Saints
read holy books and then made decisions. Our Popes have all done
the same. Tolle Lege (St. Augustine).- Take and read! The Lord will
speak to your hearts through His Mother.
Listen to Her! We love you.
