Happy birthday Mama Mary!

“They whom God destined, He called.
They whom He called, He justified.
They whom He justified, He glorified.”
(Rom 8:30)

Our Blessed Virgin Mary was destined from the very beginning of time, to be the bearer of our salvation (Mt 1:23). She was called to be the Mother of the Son of God (Lk 1:31). Thus God justified her at conception to be worthy of her role, and He glorified her with a crown of 12 stars (Rev 12:1).

Her holy life inspires us to be a living link in her Rosary:
– a link of Faith to the weak of heart
– a link of Hope to the despairing
– a link of Charity to the helpless.

And accompanying Him to Calvary, she links us to the Cross of Jesus.

We honor her for her great YES!, enabling Jesus to be firstborn among many children of God (Rom 8:29). Today is Her birthday. Let our birthday gift to her be our own YES! to Brother Jesus and to His Gospel. Ave Maria! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA MARY!

  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.
