Never Again, is Now!

This is an informative and should be an eye-opening video. Too many people are ignoring what is happening to the world and who better to tell them than a survivor of persecution.

Trouble at Austrian-Slovenian Border

Doesn’t look like humanitarian efforts in helping refugees is working out for the hosting countries. And, obama wants to inflict the same on American? Something very wrong is going on in the world.

St. Michael, Pope Leo XIII and the World Today


The prayer of St. Michael was a wonderful end to the Low Mass Liturgy prior to the liturgical changes brought about in 1965. The prayer was written by Pope Leo XIII after he is alleged to have received a prophetic vision. The common version of this vision is that Pope Leo XIII witnessed a debate between Our Blessed Lord and Satan. According to the story, during the debate/conversation, the Devil was granted somewhat free reign for a period of 100 years. The most repeated account of the events behind the prophecy of Pope Leo was as follows:

On October 13, 1884, after Pope Leo XIII had finished celebrating Mass in the Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed the prayer to St. Michael, with instructions it be said after all Low Masses everywhere. When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices – two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:

The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasting to Our Lord: “I can destroy your Church”

The gentle voice of Our Lord: “You can? Then go ahead and do so.”

Satan: “To do so, I need more time and more power.”

Our Lord: “How much time? How much power?

Satan: “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.”

Our Lord: “You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will.”

The first, known version of the story was said to have been in print around 1933 in a German newspaper. It may have come into more public knowledge having been spread by word among the Vatican staff and other religious who were with the Pope at this time. It has not been definitely ascertained how it could be traced back to the original source.
A German writer, Fr. Bers, researched the origins of the prophecy in 1933. Failing to find solid evidence of the original source, he felt the prophecy could be an invention. Yet the story continued.
Thirteen years later, after Fr. Bers failed attempt, Fr. Domenico Pechenio, a priest who worked at the Vatican offices during the time of Pope Leo XIII, came forward with a first-hand accounting of the events.
I do not remember the exact year. One morning the great Pope Leo XIII had celebrated a Mass and, as usual, was attending a Mass of thanksgiving. Suddenly, we saw him raise his head and stare at something above the celebrant’s head. He was staring motionlessly, without batting an eye. His expression was one of horror and awe; the color and look on his face changing rapidly. Something unusual and grave was happening in him.

“Finally, as though coming to his senses, he lightly but firmly tapped his hand and rose to his feet. He headed for his private office. His retinue followed anxiously and solicitously, whispering: ‘Holy Father, are you not feeling well? Do you need anything?’ He answered: ‘Nothing, nothing.’ About half an hour later, he called for the Secretary of the Congregation of Rites and, handing him a sheet of paper, requested that it be printed and sent to all the ordinaries around the world. What was that paper? It was the prayer that we recite with the people at the end of every Mass. It is the plea to Mary and the passionate request to the Prince of the heavenly host, (St. Michael: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle) beseeching God to send Satan back to hell.”
(Fr. Domenico Pechenino, quoted in the 1955 Roman journal Ephemerides Liturgicae V. LXIX, pp 54–60)
The St. Michael Prayer

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

The world seems to be a culminating into a lot of the prophecy associated with that talk between God and Satan. A look around tells anyone with common sense and a sense of the wave of terror and evil flowing quickly into the world should give us a sense of warning. However, we have been told again and again, that only God knows the time and the place for the end of time, the Second Coming, the destruction of the world, etc. As bad as things are, it could be a very grave and serious warning to each of us to realize that our personal ‘end of the world’ would more likely come before the End of the World. Probably not a good idea to put off more serious prayers and acts of reparation until we get a more definite state from Heaven.

It is also sad that the changes in 1965 removed the Saint Michael’s Prayer from the completion of the Low Mass, too. Why would such a powerful prayer be removed from daily, public prayer? When I noticed the upcoming date, this morning, it reminded me of the time frame God allowed Satan and how much bad and evil has been accomplished in the last century.

Cat Invasion . . . Again!

It’s been two years since we’ve been ‘blessed’ with an invasion of darling, homeless kittens in need of a home. We haven’t been sad over that fact either! Yesterday, however, that changed as a feisty little tom cat showed up at our door in need of a good meal and some petting. We have, however, have this situation figured out ahead of time. Once we ascertained that said cat was, indeed, homeless, we fixed up a bed on the porch, provided food and water, and made an appointment with the   vet for neutering and vaccines. Next on the schedule, an appointment with a no-kill shelter that keeps all the cats they accept until they find them homes. If they can’t find a home, they get to stay at the very nice shelter. We discovered the place with the last two stray kittens that came our way . . . and, yes, we do have to find out where the neighborhood cats posted the ‘sucker’ sign on our property and remove it.

Anyway, the kitten is darling, still trying to grow into his feet, very friendly, and able to fend off any much bigger cats that try to take his food. My daughter claims the cat is her son. I told her that illegitimate babies have to be adopted out. She insists that we can keep him and tell the neighbors that WE adopted him. I told her the family resemblance was too obvious.

The Blessed Mother’s Living Rosary – Be a Part of Prayerful Miracles

A small “mustard seed” of inspiration has quickly grown into a large group of moms from all over the US who are praying just a decade a day, together in our own time zones, houses, cars, or how about those precious few moments alone in the shower! The Living Rosary for Moms is currently assembling the 5th full, 20 decade Rosary. If you are interested in starting your own group, just find 20 like-minded women who want to join in, assign each a Mystery and decade of the Rosary . . . and pray. No one is immune to the problems developing all over. Time to turn it over to the Blessed Mother and ask for her intercession.

Remember, there is no specific time for praying your Mystery/decade and no need to form a group or anything to meet for this. In order to share in the benefits of the 20-decade Rosary, you just need to remember your assigned decade each day. So, if anyone is interested, please take advantage of this prayerful blessing and start a group. God is always in charge and we have to band together to let Him know that we know this and are asking for help, graces, and blessing for our vocations as mothers, for our personal intentions, and for the safety and security of the world.

Entitled Woman Shows Her True Colors!

How sad that a grown (NOT mature!) woman would stoop to stealing a moment from a little girl. And, the fact that no one who witnessed this stood up for what was right. In fact, her friends congratulated her on something she hadn’t accomplished.
