Medjugorje Visionary Mirjana Visits Trieste:The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph

On Saturday February 9, 2013 the Church of Saint Mary Major in Trieste, Italy, was packed for the visit of Medjugorje visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo. Hundreds more stood outside and watched on a giant screen. At eight o'clock there was Holy Mass, with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. Mirjana delighted all those present with her loving testimony. She told the story of Medjugorje, starting from the June 24 thirty-two years ago. "Dear children, do not be afraid of me," With these first words of the Virgin, the apparitions began. With the communist regime of the time, it was risky to climb the hill of the Apparition, but the six visionaries, were able to overcome the difficulties and never miss any appointment with the dear Lady.

Mirjana said the task assigned was to announce to the world with Father Petar the secrets of the Madonna. Fr Petar Ljubicic is a central figure in the Medjugorje events. He is the priest to whom the visionary, Mirjana, will announce the Secrets ten days before they take place. He will announce them to the world three days before.

Mirjana said that we must not be afraid of these secrets. "Only those who have not known the love of God will be afraid". "Who can be sure that tomorrow he will still be alive? That's what the Madonna teaches us: to be ready at any moment to go before God. She said: "My children, what I began in Fatima, I will finish in Medjugorje, my heart will triumph ... this time, it is a time for decisions. .. "

"Everything depends on our will and if someone is privileged. We must not judge or criticize the priests, but help and support them... They need our prayers and our love ... there is the time we live in now and there is time in which the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Between these two times is a bridge and the bridge is our priests." Mirjana stated that the Blessed Virgin has asked for prayers for unbelievers and to end the scourge of abortion.

Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll- Fine Gael fall in support explained

When people were asked who they would vote for if an election were held tomorrow, party support – when undecided voters are excluded – compared with the last Irish Times poll was: Fine Gael, 25 per cent (down six points); Labour, 10 per cent (down two points); Fianna Fáil, 26 per cent (up five points); Sinn Féin, 18 per cent (down two points); Green Party, 1 per cent (down one point); and Independents/Others, 20 per cent (up six points). The poll was taken last Monday and Tuesday.

I suspect that this poll underestimates FG support somewhat. More than one-third of the electorate is undecided. In addition the poll was taken before the Promissory Note deal which would undoubtedly benefit the government parties in any public opinion sample. Also the EU budget deal concluded on Friday has protected the CAP. However notwithstanding these events there are clear-cut reasons for the decline in FG support:
  • The closure of garda barracks is very unpopular in rural Ireland.In some areas there has hysteria on the crime issue. Much of it nonsensical. In many cases it has been whipped up. This has terrified many elderly people. Notwithstanding this there is a crime problem in some rural areas. In addition there is revulsion at the murder of Det Garda Adrian Donohoe. This is fresh in the minds of voters.
  • The horse-meat controversy has angered many farmers notwithstanding the fact that Minister Coveney is making every effort to get to the root of the problem. Farmers are worried about beef exports and fear a fall in prices.
  • Many farmers are angry at proposals from Ruairi Quinn on Third Level grants.
  • There is a strong anti-government campaign in some sections of the media. The Sunday Independent has led a savage attack. The government has taken a hammering on the Vincent Browne programme on TV3. The preponderance of coverage on RTE is negative and anti-government. Certainly day to day political decisions are reported. Dig down into the coverage however and in some cases you encounter an anti government slant. Some elements within RTE have set up the government for criticism on a regular basis. It is quite blatant to this observer. It is beautifully orchestrated. In addition any opposition to cutbacks is sure to get maximum publicity on the station. RTE traditionally had a policy of reading out an equal number of pro and anti government comments on any controversial issue. In some cases this no longer happens. It is particularly interesting to note how RTE reports on cut backs. Scarcely if ever is the national debt or budget deficit mentioned. Scarcely if ever is an effort made to explain the dire financial situation which makes cutbacks imperative.
  • The harsh budget has hit the government's popularity. The government itself has failed to EXPLAIN in clear English the implications of the €13 billion deficit or the €170 billion national debt. Most people do not understand the term "deficit". Hence they cannot comprehend the necessity for cutbacks. They assume that payments to bondholders are responsible for all the cutbacks. The government needs to wake up on this issue and communicate the reality in crystal clear English. It is losing the electorate.
  • The decision to legislate on the X-case has angered many FG voters. FG is a conservative Christian Democratic Party. Most FG supporters are opposed to abortion. FG backbenchers must stop James Reilly in his tracks on this issue. James Reilly is a major vote loser for FG. He comes across as arrogant.
  • Sinn Fein has acted as Fianna Fail's battering ram. It has savaged the government parties on a continuous basis. It has averted its gaze from FF allowing that party to sneak up on the inside and gain ground. Scarcely if ever do Sinn Fein TDs attack FF on its stewardship of the economy. FF has got a breather and has started to recover. Increasingly FF will benefit from Sinn Fein attacks on the government as the Sinn Fein is seen as too extreme to benefit from damage inflicted.

Mumford and Sons - Timshel (Pro-Life Song with lyrics)

(Note: The band tells the story of a friend who is facing an un-Planned Pregnancy.)

Cold is the water
It freezes your already cold mind
Already cold, cold mind
And death is at your doorstep
And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance

But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand
Hold your hand

And you are the mother
The mother of your baby child
The one to whom you gave life
And you have your choices
And these are what make man great
His ladder to the stars

But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand
Hold your hand

And I will tell the night
Whisper, "Lose your sight"
But I can't move the mountains for you

Video:Catholic Orthodox unity in sight?

The two lungs of Christ's Church must breathe together again in the Third millennium as they did in the First Millennium. That breath is the breath of the Holy Spirit. That breath will fuel a new missionary age of the Church. The scandal of separation must end if the fight against rampant secularism and godlessness is to succeed.
