Former Atheist Kelly Nieto explains her conversion to Catholicism

Medjugorje - Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana on 2 January 2018

Message to Mirjana - January 2, 2018

“Dear children, When love is beginning to disappear on earth, when the way of salvation is not being found, I, the mother, am coming to help you to come to know true faith – living and profound – so as to help you to truly love. As a mother, I am longing for your mutual love, goodness, and purity. My desire is that you be just and that you love each other. My children, be joyful in your soul, be pure, be children. My Son used to say that he loves to be among pure hearts, because pure hearts are always young and joyful. My Son said to you to forgive and to love each other. I know that this is not always easy. Suffering makes you grow in spirit.

For you to spiritually grow all the more, you must sincerely and truly forgive and love. Many of my children on earth do not know my Son, they do not love Him; but you who do love my Son, you who carry Him in your heart, pray, pray and in praying feel my Son beside you. May your soul breathe in His spirit. I am among you and am speaking about little and great things. I will not grow tired speaking to you about my Son – the true love. Therefore, my children, open your hearts to me. Permit me to lead you as a mother. Be apostles of the love of my Son and of me. As a mother I implore you not to forget those whom my Son has called to lead you. Carry them in your heart and pray for them. Thank you.”

Ireland: Maria Steen and Rónán Mullen demolish liberal abortion proposals of Oireachtas Committee

The Today Show with Sean O'Rourke featured the Friday Gathering on December 15 2017. Examining the recommendations of the Oireachtas committee on the Eighth Amendment were Bernard Durkan, Fine Gael TD for Kildare North, Rónán Mullen, Independent Senator, Alison O’Connor, Political Columnist with the Irish Examiner, and Maria Steen, of the IONA Institute. The debate on abortion starts about two minutes into the podcast.

The Oireachtas abortion committee proposals would permit abortion for any reason up to 12 weeks (which is when 90pc of abortions take place). - The proposals would also permit abortion after that and right up to birth for reasons of 'physical or mental health'. The vast majority of Britain's 200,000 abortions per annum take place on the mental health ground.

The Oireachtas Committee proposal is an outrageous attack on the life of the unborn child. A referendum based on these proposals will take place in May of 2018. The media is overwhelmingly pro- abortion and will do everything in its power to topple the Eight Amendment which protects the life of the unborn child.

Seven Sorrows Rosary Miracle experienced by woman who could not conceive

Immaculée Ilibagiza was born and raised in a small village in Rwanda, Africa. She is a survivor of the Rwandan genocide.To protect his only daughter from rape and murder, Immaculée’s father told her to run to a local pastor’s house for protection. The pastor quickly sheltered Immaculée and seven other women in a hidden 3 x 4 foot bathroom. For the next 91 days, Immaculée and the other women huddled silently in this small room. She daily recited the Rosary and credits it for her survival. Her entire family was wiped out , with the exception of one brother who was studying abroad. She also found nearly one million of her extended family, friends, neighbors and fellow Rwandans were massacred. She then emigrated to the United States. She has written religious books and organises retreats and also pilgrimages to Kibeho the Lourdes of Africa.


One day Immaculée received the following letter from a lady who could not conceive but who began to say the SEVEN SORROWS ROSARY
"Hello Immaculee,

I hope this is the best way to get in touch with you? I write to tell you about what I consider to be another miracle of the 7 sorrows rosary. I saw you in person a couple of years ago when you were in Southern California and even before that, after I read your book, "Left to Tell", I have been praying the 7 sorrows rosary. I have a niece M., who desperately wanted to have her own baby. She married a wonderful fellow who had a daughter from a previous relationship and M. loved that little girl, but just wanted her own baby and to have the experience of being a mom.

She and her husband tried and tried in vain to get pregnant for a long time, but after few years of trying, finally M. got pregnant. She had miscarriages 4 different times. They would get so excited, but after a short period of time, there would be no heartbeat. She was so sad! Last July, at a family reunion, she whispered to me, "Auntie S., I am 7 weeks pregnant! Please pray for me, Auntie!" I began that very day praying the 7 sorrows rosary for her.

I also told her about it and asked her if she would like more information on it, she said, "Yes"! So I sent her, from your website, the rosary and the booklet on how to pray it. I have prayed it almost every day since July. Her pregnancy continued to go well and she got farther along than ever. The baby was doing well and her due date was March 4th. On January 14th, her sister and sister-in-law gave her a baby shower which I flew up to attend. She was so happy and looked so great and we all were so happy for her and her husband.

The next morning, however, I looked at my phone and found a text from her saying, "Auntie, please pray. I went into labor last night. I am in the hospital and the baby is coming!" Well, baby E. was born on January 15th at only 32 weeks. He has done amazingly well! He was only in the NICU for 19 days, which is not much for being born that early. They got to bring him home last weekend. He is truly a miracle! Thank you Mother Mary and Jesus! Thank you also Immaculee for your wonderful work. You are an inspiration to all. God Bless, S. M."

Please share with anyone who might be facing any trouble, or needing a healing. The Seven Sorrows is a gift from Heaven, Our Lady obtained for us. She promised Her assistance and many graces from those who will call upon God through this Prayer. The impossible will be possible. I also kindly ask you to share with me any miracle of the Seven Sorrows Rosary so I can continue to encourage others to say it. Our Lady asked us for her help to help her children know this gift, She will reward you.


God bless you,
Immaculee
(Share with those it might help)

Medjugorje: Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana on November 2, 2017

Message to Mirjana - November 2, 2017

Our Lady appeared to Mirjana Soldo and gave the following message:

Dear children, As I am looking at you gathered around me, your mother, I see many pure souls, many of my children who are seeking love and consolation, but no one is offering it to them. I also see those who are doing evil, because they do not have good examples; they have not come to know my Son. The good which is silent and is spread through pure souls is the strength which sustains this world. There is much sin, but there is also love. My Son is sending me to you - the mother who is the same for everyone - that I may teach you to love, to comprehend that you are brothers. He desires to help you.

Apostles of my love, a living desire of faith and love is sufficient, and my Son will accept it. But you must be worthy, you must havegood will and open hearts. My Son enters into open hearts. I, as a mother, desire that you may all the better come to know my Son - God born of God – to come to know the greatness of His love which you need so much. He accepted your sins upon Himself and obtained redemption for you, and in return He asked that you love each other. My Son is love. He loves all people withoutdifference, all people of all countries and of all nations. If you, my children, would live the love of my Son, His kingdom would already be on earth. Therefore, apostles of my love, pray, pray that my Son and His love may be all the closer to you; that you may be an example of love and may help all those who have not come to know my Son. Never forget that my Son, one and triune, loves you. Love your shepherds and pray for them. Thank you. ”
