Mary

God does everything so that the human person discovers the mystery that God has placed in his heart.  Unfortunately, each culture is filled with darkness and so many do not have the needed light to read what is within, to understand these inner mysteries.  That is why I speak.

Within you, O reader, is an intellect which shares God’s power to know.  You also have a spiritual will, quite independent of your lower desires.  Do not confuse the two because they war against each other.  Inside you also is a power deliberately placed there by your Maker.  He made you for himself.  Deep inside that power is your call, who you are meant to be, whom you are to love, and to work with and what you are to do to fulfill your call.

All of these are powerful forces within you that lead to your happiness.  God calls you to the deepest joys, the greatest accomplishments and, finally, a place with Jesus forever.

You are not free to rip these mysteries out of your soul.  You cannot say, “I will no longer be a human person.”  Even your death will not end your human existence.  I come to you to help you.  Together, we can discover the road to your happiness.

Comment:  Man has no choice.  He is created without any choice on his part.  Our Lady promises that she can bring each person to eternal happiness.

  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.

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.
