Living Jesus Christ
continues to invite us to
open the "door" of our hearts to Him!
SUMMARY OF THE
GREAT JUBILEE YEAR
On October 8, 2000 Pope John Paul II
ACT OF ENTRUSTMENT TO MARY!
A portion of which states, "Here,
then, are your children, gathered before you at the dawn of the new
millennium...Today we wish to entrust to you the future that awaits us,
and we ask you to be with us on our way. We are the men and women of an
extraordinary time, exhilarating yet full of contradictions. Humanity now
has instruments of unprecedented power: we can turn this world into a
garden, or reduce it to a pile of rubble. We have devised the astounding
capacity to intervene in the very well-springs of life: man can use this
power for good, within the bounds of the moral law, or he can succumb to the
short-sighted pride of a science which accepts no limits, but tramples on the
respect due to every human being. Today as never before in the past,
humanity stands at a crossroads. And once again, O Virgin Most Holy,
salvation lies fully and uniquely in Jesus, your Son.
Therefore, O Mother, like the Apostle John, we wish to take you into our home (John 19:27), that we may learn from you to become like your Son. 'Woman, behold your son!' Here we stand before you to entrust to your maternal care ourselves, the Church, the entire world."
As children of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we must give her thanks for her powerful intercession. It was the decision of the courts on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 2000 that lead to the finalization of the very controversial presidential election that had taken place on November 7th in the United States. George W. Bush was certified president on the Feast of Christ the King. Now we must continue to pray and fast for her intercession to end of the legalization of abortion in the United States of America. We are encouraging that the Holy Rosary continue to be said before the Blessed Sacrament, asking for Our Lady's most powerful intercession for this request!
REMEMBER ~~ St. Dominic received this powerful prayer in 1214 from the Blessed Virgin Mary as the means of converting the Albigensians who refused to acknowledge the sacraments, especially that of marriage. They promoted sexual promiscuity and denied the Blessed Trinity. This was 787 years ago BUT DOES THIS NOT SOUND frighteningly familiar? Our Lady told St. Dominic "I want you to know that in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter (the Holy Rosary), which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore, if you want to reach these hardened souls, and win them over to God, preach my Psalter!"
is exactly how the people of Mexico elected an honest,
sincere, Catholic, pro-life
president on July 1st, 2000 ~~ ending the
ruling party's 71 year dishonest reign.
You see, God is pro-life!
The United States, as a world
leader must become pro-life
once again! AND
Could this be one of the reasons why Our Lady weeps?
*** PLEASE reread the words spoken by Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego on December 9, 1531, on Page 1 of the True Story as we have obtained a copy of the original documentation from the Nican Mopohua ~~ see Verification. We believe that you will be pleasantly surprised and pleased by the intensity of the love portrayed in these famous words ( taken from Paragraphs 26-37 in the Nican Mopohua ) With the gift of her love, there also comes a commission, as she said, "Now go and do your part."
A Portion of the "Secret of Fatima" Revealed
At the conclusion of the Holy Mass on May 13, 2000, the anniversary date of the first apparition of the Blessed Mother to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917, the "third part" of the message of Fatima was addressed. The Mass was celebrated in conjunction with the beatification of the two youngest shepherd children, Francisco and Jacinta Marto. The Holy Father gave permission to Cardinal Angelo Sodano to present the address.
Remember, in 1917, The Blessed Mother, Mary, asked for prayer (especially the Holy Rosary), conversion and penance. That many souls go to Hell because there is no one to pray and offer sacrifices for their conversion. The three children were allowed to see a most terrifying vision of Hell. The Blessed Mother told them, "Pray the Rosary and make reparation for poor sinners. You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save souls from Hell, God wishes to establish in the world, devotion to my IMMACULATE HEART. My IMMACULATE HEART will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. If what I say is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end (World War I), BUT if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI (World War II ). When you see a light, know that this is the great sign given you by God, that He is about to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, famine and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH! The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted and some period of peace will be granted to the world." This reflects the first "two parts" of the message of Fatima.
The "third part" of the message has remained a secret and has been up to the discretion of the popes as to whether or not they felt that it should be revealed. Pope John Paul II felt that a portion of the message should, at long last, be given to the world. Before the message was given, it was confirmed by the only living shepherd, Sister Lucia dos Santos, who is in her 90,s. Basically, it has to do with "...a 'Bishop clothed in white' who prays for all the faithful (this person has been identified as the Pope), as he makes his way with great effort towards the Cross amid the corpses of those who were martyred (Bishops, priests, men and women religious and many lay persons), he too falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a burst of gunfire."
** Many "attacks" have been made against the authenticity of the miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the cactus-fiber cloak of Juan Diego.
The Archdiocese of Mexico City has once again re-examined the hundreds of documents attesting to the validity of the apparition. The result being, finding even stronger evidence to support the TRUTH of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego in 1531.
*** There will continue to be unwarranted "attacks" against the validity of this "approved" apparition, as this is how our adversary, Satan, works. HE CANNOT DESTROY THE PROOF, but through various common communication medias, such as television, radio and newspapers, he plants a "seed" of serious doubt in peoples' minds. It is his hope that these questions will, in turn, cause doubts in our faith, with the ultimate goal of eventually destroying our faith ~~ and with it, all hope and love.
This gives us even more reason to make sure our faith is strong enough to withstand these "attacks!" This is a time of great "spiritual warfare!" Our "battle armor" is prayer and frequent reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist.
This is the precise reason that, the Mother of God, Mary, advocates the praying of her Holy Rosary and "consecration" to her Immaculate Heart!
Did you know ~~ that during the GREAT JUBILEE year which the entire Catholic Church had celebrated in 2000, Pope John Paul II, in a solemn papal decree, had granted the ability to receive remission of the temporal punishment due for our sins in Purgatory.
To obtain the Jubilee "gift" of a plenary indulgence we had to ~~
Participate in "individual" Sacramental Reconciliation ( Confession )
Pray for the intentions of the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II ( Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be )
Perform "specifically designated" acts of devotion, penance or charity as an act of repentance for our sins
Receive Holy Eucharist ( Holy Communion ) the day of the prescribed act of devotion, penance or charity
EVEN THOUGH THE GREAT JUBILEE YEAR HAS ENDED~~ we may still gain partial or plenary indulgences through the same requisites stated above, but usually through special indulgenced prayers or good works.
For complete information, please review the "Conditions for Gaining the Jubilee Indulgence," from Incarnationis Mysterium, Bull of Indiction of the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000
