Mary

I come to the heart of the problem, which is the heart of each person.  The human person is like a fortress, with their will at the highest and most protected place, a free will that makes the final decision of what to surrender to.
It is faced with daily decisions and says “yes or no” a hundred times a day.  From these decisions, comes success or failure.

O soul, you say “yes” to this and “no” to that, but I am knocking now at the door of your will.  A heavenly visitor has come.  I offer you a heavenly choice.  I offer you a chance to surrender to what is above you.  The heavenly Father wants to lift you up and recue you from the frustration of human life.  (This is his plan for the human person.)

Comment:  Nothing on earth can satisfy the human person.  God made the heart for himself.

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.
