Pay Attention to the Signs

We have been warned in countless apparitions and locutions by Our Lord Jesus, Our Holy Mother, and Great Saints that, unless we turn to a prayerful life pleasing to the eyes of God, there would be cataclysmic wars, weather, geological, and astronomical forces, especially just before the second coming of Jesus. We are presently experiencing many of these forces all over the world. Read the newspaper and turn on the news. Unprecedented natural events such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, heat waves, snow in warm areas and melting in cold areas, droughts, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes are causing intense suffering. Signs from the heavens such as rare eclipses and meteor showers are abounding.

Look at the words of Jesus from Luke 21:25-28, 34-36,  “There will be strange things happening to the sun, the moon and the stars. On earth whole countries will be in despair, afraid of the roar of the sea and the raging tides. People will faint from fear as they wait for what is coming over the whole earth, for the powers in space will be driven from their courses. Then the Son of Man will appear coming in a cloud with great power and glory. When these things begin to happen, stand up and raise your heads, because your salvation is near. . . Be careful not to let yourselves become occupied with too much feasting and drinking and with the worries of this life, or that Day may suddenly catch you like a trap. For it will come upon all people everywhere on earth. Be on watch and pray always that you will have the strength to go safely through all those things that will happen and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Pray and meditate the mysteries of the rosary that you may be prepared to stand in front of the Just Judge, and He may say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

The Slaughter of the Innocents

Today is the Catholic feast day of The Holy Innocents. These infant boys are the first martyrs of the church because they died to protect the life of their Savior. Herod was so angry that the Wise Men did not return to inform him about the location of this new king, Jesus, that he ordered a slaughter of all first born males. “Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, was in a furious rage, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time of which he had ascertained from the wise men” (Matthew 2:16).

Today, innocent children die each day at the hands of abortionists. Please pray your rosary for an end to the evil of abortion.

Miracle Apparitions at Zeitoun, Egypt (With Video Links)

Our Holy Mother encourages those who will soon undergo persecution. The miraculous, unexplained apparitions at Zeitoun, Egypt were to prepare Christians for persecution:

"Attacks by Muslims in one of America's Middle East allies, Egypt, on Christians are intensifying,
and experts on the centuries-old conflict over Islam's claim to pre-eminence say the violence isn't a surprise.
Among the most recent attacks, which have included shootings, abductions and church burnings, were the assaults against Coptic Christians trying to use St. Michael's Church in Talbiya for prayer, where officials staged an all-night operation to convert a house across the street from the Christian church into a mosque to oppose Christianity."  World Net Daily, 12/16/2010. Read the whole article here

View a documentary of Our Lady of Zeitoun. Thousands of people witnessed this Marian apparition which occurred over a period of 2-3 years beginning on April 2, 1968. Documentary: Our Lady of Zeitun

Thousands have witnessed Our Holy Mother's recent appearances over Coptic Churches in Egypt. Here is just one: Miraculous apparition at Warraq Cairo Egypt, 2009

Pray the rosary daily for world peace and Christians suffering persecution!

Iraq Persecution

It seems wherever in the world there will be Christian persecution or war, a seer from that area receives visits from Heaven. In the news today, Iraqui Christians are being persecuted and will have to celebrate Christmas either in secret or not at all, "Nobody can ignore the threats of al-Qaida against Iraqi Christians," said Chaldean Archbishop Louis Sako in Kirkuk. "We cannot find a single source of joy that makes us celebrate. The situation of the Christians is bleak." ~ Associated Press, December 23, 2010

The Catholic Church is still investigating the Iraqui apparition, but the Orthodox bishops have approved it. Click on Link:

Pray your rosary, especially for the intentions of Iraq!

Rosary Promises For Us

Our Holy Mother makes these promises to us whenever we pray the rosary devoutly:
  1. To all those who shall pray my Rosary devoutly, I promise my special protection and great graces.
  2. Those who shall persevere in the recitation of my Rosary will receive some special grace.
  3. The Rosary will be a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin and dispel heresy.
  4. The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
  5. Those who trust themselves to me through the Rosary will not perish.
  6. Whoever recites my Rosary devoutly reflecting on the mysteries, shall never be overwhelmed by misfortune. He will not experience the anger of God nor will he perish by an unprovided death. The sinner will be converted; the just will persevere in grace and merit eternal life.
  7. Those truly devoted to my Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
  8. Those who are faithful to recite my Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces and will share in the merits of the blessed.
  9. I will deliver promptly from purgatory souls devoted to my Rosary.
  10. True children of my Rosary will enjoy great glory in heaven.
  11. What you shall ask through my Rosary you shall obtain.
  12. To those who propagate my Rosary I promise aid in all their necessities.
  13. I have obtained from my Son that all the members of the Rosary Confraternity shall have as their intercessors, in life and in death, the entire celestial court.
  14. Those who recite my Rosary faithfully are my beloved children, the brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ.
  15. Devotion to my Rosary is a special sign of predestination.
