Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion. Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

And Mary is one of those.

    We have a treasure in Our Blessed Mother. She loves us as we are shared by her Son hanging on the Cross. Like John, let us bring her home to our hearts and our family and country.

    That is very true. I work at an office, and before I begin work, I bring out a little figurine of Our Lady, and pray a Hail Mary. Most of my office mates comment about it, some laugh at it, some see it as a sort of a good luck charm, which of course, isnt. I simply put Mama Mary in front of me, because during periods of rest, I talk to her, or pray some short Marian prayers.

    When the Pope Consecrates Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, along with all the Bishops of the World, as she has requested in 1925 when she appeared to Sister Lucia of Fatima, then the World will be granted a time of peace and Russia will be converted. Our Lady does not fall back on her promises.

    Very correct . Mary is the answer to all our needs

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
