Mary and the New Times of Noah * * First, this is a longer than normal post (although I admit, my posts are on the longer side), but this message is so important that it warrants an extra few minutes of your time and hours of your reflection! Every October 13, the world is reminded of the great Marian revolution that has been taking place in the world since 1917. Now we are approaching the 100 year... Read More

 Mary, Teach Us How to Pray   Many times we cry out in the midst of interior and exterior trials, “Dearest Mother, help me!” When the world is in crisis, the Church cries out: “Mary, our Mother, help us!” What has been her response? The answer given to St. Dominic (early 13th century) against the radical and militant heretics of his time, the answer spoken through Pope St. Pius V during... Read More

“The Rosary Is Our Spiritual Weapon of Mass Destruction Against Satan” I just returned from leading a retreat in Los Alamos, New Mexico. It was organized by those belonging to TOOL, which stands for “Teams of Our Lady”. What an exceptional group of Catholics, who witnessed to me while I witnessed to them. Considering the location, you might say the retreat was radioactive! Now, if you... Read More

Mary, Ark of Salvation – “Last Call! All Aboard!” Global stock markets beginning to crash, Christian persecution on the rise, the moral cache of western civilization bankrupt, totalitarianism under all forms is on the rise, the God-created institutions of marriage and family under all-out assault, Planned Parenthood’s horrendous evils finally being exposed, the war on truth and reality shifting... Read More

IF

“In the End My Immaculate Heart will Triumph” “Hail, Holy Queen! Hail, our life our sweetness and our hope!” Mary is our hope. And the Church proclaims it every day at the end of every rosary and often at the end of the Church’s Night Prayer (or Compline). In our modern times, no other words draw our attention to this reality than the promise Our Immaculate Mother made to the world... Read More

The Powerful Crown of Roses

The Powerful Crown of Roses In the kingdom of men, the crowns made of durable, precious metals yield the symbol of power and dominion. In the Kingdom of God, it is always the opposite. It is those crowns made from living vines and branches that God chooses to show that true power is found in those rooted in the earth – in other words, in humility (derived from the Latin humus meaning “from the... Read More

Fatima, Mary and the Moslems In our last reflection, we looked at the supernatural significance of the year 1917 as a year of two competing revolutions: one against God and the other restoring all things in God through His Mother – as the unprecedented Marian age since 1830 has undoubtedly confirmed. We looked briefly at how atheistic Communism is at the heart of the world’s evils as it completely... Read More

 1917 1917 What do Russia, the rise of Communism, the fall of Communism, Islam and Catholicism share in common? Fatima, 1917. We will unpack these connections over the next few blog posts as we reflect on the revolutionary message of Fatima. When we look at the complex web of world events today, it can be too easy to get caught up in daily news reports that tirelessly remind us we are living in one... Read More

Hail Holy Queen, Hail Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope! Memorial of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary   What a beautiful salutation to call upon Our Most Blessed Mother! One may be tempted to think that these words are an exaggerated expression of piety as they apply also to her Son, whose sacrifice on the Cross obtained our Redemption. However, God’s Redemption began not with an... Read More
