October 23, 2013: A New Day is Dawning

~ by Mary Galvano

A new day is dawning! Within the midst of all that is happening in this world God’s mercy is great. There are many who turn away from God’s mercy, but there are many being saved through it and through the consecration of the Blessed Mother. In the end Love and Mercy will win, they already have. God’s love is far greater than anything in the world.

Pope Francis consecrated the whole world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Marian consecration is on fire, especially here in the United States. Through the Immaculata we are led to Divine Mercy. It is Mary who is the closest to Jesus and who will intercede for us, helping us live holy lives that bring us back to God. Just as at Cana, Mary is sensitive to our human needs and brings them to Christ. Mary places herself between her Son and mankind in the reality of their wants, needs, and sufferings. In turn she wishes the messianic power of her Son to be manifested for the deliverance of evil. In this “Year of Faith” we must believe all that we agreed to believe when we became Catholics.

Ask your Mother, the Immaculata, to help you with your faith. Her intercession is powerful! Faith is what will bring our whole world back to God. If anyone knows how to have faith she does. Mary entrusted her whole life to God through the power of the Holy Spirit, becoming the spouse of the Holy Spirit. She is a woman of perfect faith, the first apostle of Jesus. Ask Mary to help you say “yes” to God just as she did so that you too may be an apostle of Jesus Christ.

Don’t miss out on this new wave of faith sweeping through our nation. Jump on board the Consecration to Mary. Our Savior places each of us personally into the hands of His mother. He gave her to us to take care of us, to nurture us, just like she nurtured Christ. Seeing Mary standing at the foot of the Cross next to his beloved disciple, John, Jesus said, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then, to John, “Behold, your mother” (Jn 19:26-27). These words summarize that Mary is indeed our spiritual mother. But, after Jesus’ words comes the next verse, “Then the disciple took her into his home.” Here is the heart of our response to Jesus entrusting us to his beloved mother Mary as our mother. We must entrust ourselves to her by taking her “into our homes”. In other words, our inner life and all that concerns us. Ask Mary to give you her heart and in turn ask her to keep yours in hers. Together with the help of Mary we will change the world and one day soon we will all say “Yes!” to Christ.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

The Immaculata Prayer

O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, (name), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet, humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.

If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world.” Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O Sacred Virgin.

R. Give me strength against your enemies.

Amen.
