“In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal.” -Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Father and Doctor of the Church

Eighth Day: Today bring to Me the Souls who are in the prison of Purgatory and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice.“ Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.

Alleluia. Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. HAPPY EASTER FRIENDS!
THIRD DAY: “Today bring to Me all Devout and Faithful Souls, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were a drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness.” Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Teach us, we ask You, humility of heart so we may be counted among the little ones of the Gospel, to whom the Father promised to reveal the mysteries of His Kingdom.
Help us to pray without ceasing, certain that God knows what we need even before we ask Him. Obtain for us the eyes of faith that will be able to recognize right away in the poor and suffering the Face of Jesus.
Sustain us in the hour of the combat and of the trial and, if we fall, make us experience the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness. Grant us your tender devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus and our Mother. Accompany us on our earthly pilgrimage toward the blessed homeland, where we hope to arrive in order to contemplate forever the glory of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Concerning the Mass, Padre Pio said: “It would be easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”
And Padre Pio the spiritual director advises us in this way: “The field of battle between God and Satan is the human soul. This is where it takes place every moment of our lives. The soul must give free access to our Lord and be completely fortified by Him with every kind of weapon. His light must illuminate it to fight the darkness of error. We must put on Jesus Christ, His truth and justice, the shield of faith, the word of God to overcome such powerful enemies. To put on Jesus Christ we must die to ourselves. Let us humble ourselves and confess that if God were not our armour and shield, we would be pierced by all kinds of sins. That is why we must live in God by persevering in our practices, and learn to serve Him at our own expense.”

FIRST DAY: “Today bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.” Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.

Cross walk New York City 🗽☦️✝️ What happened on the first Good Friday? Quite a number of things. During the night, Jesus had been arrested and taken before the high priests Annas and Caiaphas. It was during this time that Peter denied him.
According to the gospels, Jesus:
-Was taken before Pilate in the morning
-Sent to Herod
-Returned to Pilate
Was mocked and beaten
-Saw Barabbas released in his stead
-Was crowned with thorns
-Was condemned to death
-Carried the crushing burden of his cross
-Told the weeping women what would happen in the future
-Was crucified between two thieves
-Forgave those who crucified him
-Entrusted the Virgin Mary to the beloved disciple
-Assured the good thief of his salvation
-Said his famous seven last words
Cried out and died
-There was darkness over the land
-There was an earthquake
-The veil of the temple was torn in two
-Many saints of the Old Testament period were raised
-A soldier pierced Christ’s side and blood and water flowed out
-Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body
-He was buried in Joseph’s own tomb
-A guard was set over the tomb
-All Jesus’ friends and family grieved at his death

On this day we remember when Jesus dies on the cross to save us from sin and give us eternal life. The priest reads the passion of Christ in the liturgy of the Adoration of the Cross. On this day Holy Mass is not celebrated. In the churches, the images are covered with a purple cloth like the crucifix and the tabernacle is open as a sign that Jesus is not there. The purple color in the liturgy of the Church means mourning. The image of the Virgin is dressed in black as a sign of mourning for the death of her Son. How can we live this day? This day the Church commands to keep fasting and abstinence. It is customary to pray the Way of the Cross and meditate on the Seven Words of Jesus on the cross. Participate in the Liturgy of Adoration of the Cross with much love, respect and devotion. It is about accompanying Jesus in his suffering. At three in the afternoon, we remember the crucifixion of Jesus praying the Creed.

Holy Heart of Jesus, Sweet Sanctuary of rest,
bring peace to my soul and settle my spirit,
especially in the matter of_________________.
I vow to place all of my worries and fears
into the wound of your Sacred Heart,
there to be tended to in accordance with your perfect will,
which desires only the best and highest good.
Your love alone is enough, and I surrender to it;
clinging to the hope of a swift resolution
and trusting with confidence in all of your promises.

He is now living in the Mpanda Diocese in Tanzania resting and still doing some #ministry work from a #retirement home for the #religious and #priests.
80 years of faithful ministry in #Africa. A true faithful servant of Christ!

He got into a boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.The men were amazed and said, “What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?” Matthew 8:23-27
Just like Jesus’s disciples, we are sometimes vulnerable to our human weakness. During life’s storms, we might find ourselves faltering and failing. We become afraid and we rely on earthly solutions instead of spiritual answers to fix our problems.
The miracle of Jesus calming the storm at sea reminds us to grow faith in God. As long as we believe in the power of God and his unwavering love for us, we can weather any storm and overcome upheavals that come our way.
