Escaping the Greatest Evil


Appearing at Guadalupe, Lourdes, Fatima and other places throughout the world, the Virgin Mary tells us that loss of faith, atheism, moral indifference, and living as if God did not exist represent man’s greatest tragedy.

Wherever it occurs, widespread rejection of Christ and His Gospel inevitably brings with it the rise of criminal totalitarian regimes, genocide, the decline of culture and freedom, and the moral degeneration of societies — in a word, it unleashes hell on earth. The most effective way of avoiding the tragedy of loss of faith and eternal life lies in consecrating ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Venerable John Paul II explained: “The consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary means a return to the cross of her Son. It means consecrating the world to the pierced Heart of the Savior, bringing it back to the source of redemption. Christ’s redemption is always greater than man’s sin and the ‘sin of the world.’ The power of His redemption is infinitely greater than all the evil in man and the world. Consecrating ourselves to Mary means accepting her help in offering ourselves and all of humanity to our One Savior Jesus Christ.”

Our Blessed Mother leads us most surely in the way of faith and boundless trust in her Son, Jesus Christ, thus enabling Him to free us from enslavement to sin by the power of his infinite mercy. “I desire trust from my creatures,” said Jesus to St. Faustina. “Let the weak and sinful soul not fear to approach me….Mankind will not know peace until it turns to the source of my mercy” (Diary, 1059; 699).

Three times Our Lady told Sister Lucy of Fatima: “We are approaching the final days.” In view of this, our best recourse is to consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart and pray the rosary.

Mary laments that in view of humanity’s failure to accept the means of salvation offered to it so far, she now offers her own tears. The phenomenon, so widespread in recent years, of Our Lady’s images and statues shedding tears of blood is another in a series of warnings and signs calling humanity to come to its senses and return to God. Jesus tells Sister Faustina: “Before the day of justice comes, I grant mankind a time of mercy.” Can we be so insensitive and indifferent to the cautions and pleas of Our Blessed Mother?

Dear readers! Our Blessed Mother entreats each and every one of us to undertake the task of saving ourselves, our loved ones, our country, and the world. We know that only the love of Christ can relieve the menace of our sins and of the evil that weighs upon us and the entire human race. But Christ needs our consent, that He may act in us and through us in reaching the greatest sinners with His love. Let us entrust ourselves each day to the Immaculate Heart of Mary; allow her to teach us to live by faith every day. To do this, we need to order our lives and our daily routine, allocating sufficient time for prayer, work, rest, and recreation. Above all, we need to:

Despise and reject all sin and live our lives in accordance with the moral norms and teachings of the Catholic Church.

Resolve not to give in to discouragement and to pick ourselves up each time we fall into serious sin by availing ourselves of the sacrament of penance without delay.

Resolve to pray every day, especially the rosary and the chaplet of divine mercy, and to meditate on Holy Scripture. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is also strongly recommended.

Resolve to observe the first Fridays and Saturdays of the month, offering them up to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in reparation for our sins and those of the whole world.

Resolve to make a monthly confession and to receive Jesus as often as possible in the Eucharist; also, when possible to observe a fast of bread and water on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Fr. Mieczysław Piotrowski, SChr

Act of Consecration
to the Immaculate Heart
of Mary

Immaculate Mother of Jesus and my own Mother — Mary! Taking Servant of God John Paul II as my example, I say to you today, “Totus Tuus/Tota tua!” — I am all yours! To your Immaculate Heart I entrust my whole self, all that I am: my mind, my heart, my will, my body, my senses, my emotions, my memory, my hurts, my weaknesses, my past from the moment of conception, my present, and my future along with my bodily death, every step I take, my every thought, word, and deed. To your Immaculate Heart I also entrust my family and all that I own. To you I offer all my prayers, works, and sufferings. O Best of Mothers! Protect me and my loved ones from the Evil One. Entreat for us all the graces necessary for our transformation and healing. Guide us along the path of life and make use of us for the building up of the Kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ — the one Savior of the world, from whom all good things, truth, and life come. Amen.
