Dear Family of Mary!

September 02, 2017 "Dear children, who could speak to you about the love and the pain of my Son better than I? I lived with Him; I suffered with Him. Living the earthly life, I felt pain because I was a mother. My Son loved the thoughts and the works of the Heavenly Father, the true God. And, as He said to me, He came to redeem you. I hid my pain through love, but you, my children, you have numerous questions. You do not comprehend pain. You do not comprehend that through the love of God you need to accept pain and endure it. Every human being will experience it to a lesser or greater measure. But with peace in the soul and in a state of grace, hope exists; this is my Son, God, born of God. His words are the seed of eternal life. Sown in good souls they bring numerous fruits. My Son bore the pain because He took your sins upon Himself. Therefore, you, my children, apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory. My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, Heaven enters in you and you give a piece of Heaven and much hope to all those around you. Thank you."
 
In this message, Our Lady spoke to us of pain. There is much to learn from her words. I am especially struck by these, "Therefore, you, my children, apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory...." It is hard to understand, but suffering endured with love for God is the most beautiful thing on earth. It brings Jesus down to us in a very special way.
 
Still we want very much for Jesus to heal those who are sick and suffering. Long ago, in 1985, she spoke to Jelena about those who suffer. She dictated a prayer to use when praying for the sick. It teaches us much about how to accept and endure pain, about how to stay connected to the Lord in sickness and suffering. Here is the prayer:

Prayer for a Sick Person
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 6/22/1985)
Recite 3 Glory Be's   
O my God
behold this sick person before You.
He has come to ask You what he wishes
and what he considers as the most important thing for him.

You, oh my God,
make these words enter into his heart:
"What is important, is the health of your soul."   
Lord, may Your will in everything
take place in his regard.
 
If You want for him to be cured,
let health be given to him;
but if Your will is something else,
let him continue to bear his cross.   
I also pray to You for us,
who intercede for him;
purify our hearts,
to make us worthy to convey
Your holy Mercy.   
Protect him and relieve his pain,
that Your holy will be done in him,
that Your holy name be revealed through him,
help him to bear his cross with courage. Amen

When we contemplate suffering and pain, we stand before a mystery. We do not understand the great power and beauty of a soul that suffers with love. But Our Lady tells us about it. She says: "My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, Heaven enters in you and you give a piece of Heaven and much hope to all those around you."  The key is to desire what is for the health of our soul, desire God's will for us, and trust Him with our lives.  That witness of trust in God brings heaven to earth.

May we give that piece of Heaven to all we meet, and may our suffering be turned to joy one day in Heaven.
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Mary TV: September 18, 2017 Reflection - Tell me about everything that concerns you.

    
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2017

 
 

J.M.J.
September 18, 2017
Dear Family of Mary!

August 25, 2017 "Dear children! Today I am calling you to be people of prayer. Pray until prayer becomes a joy for you and a meeting with the Most High. He will transform your hearts and you will become people of love and peace. Do not forget, little children, that Satan is strong and wants to draw you away from prayer. You, do not forget that prayer is the secret key of meeting with God. That is why I am with you to lead you. Do not give up on prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call."

On August 25, 2017, Our Lady called us again to prayer. She told us to be "people of prayer", to "pray until prayer becomes a joy for you and a meeting with the Most High." She doesn't give up on this call. It is essential to her plan for us. What does she mean by "a meeting with the Most High"?
 
For one thing she doesn't mean a public meeting with God. Though public prayer is indispensable to our Christian life, it does not meet all our needs as God's children. We need time with our Father. We need time with Jesus, our Brother, to be with Him. We need time with the Holy Spirit, who envelops us in love. It has to be one-to-one time, intimate and personal. We are meant to have this kind of relationship with the Lord. He wants it. Take this conversation between St. Faustina and Jesus, for example:
February 6, [1937]. Today, the Lord said to me, My daughter, I am told that there is much simplicity in you, so why do you not tell Me about everything that concerns you, even the smallest details? Tell Me about everything, and know that this will give Me great joy. I answered, "But You know about everything, Lord." And Jesus replied to me, Yes, I do know; but you should not excuse yourself with the fact that I know, but with childlike simplicity talk to Me about everything, for My ears and heart are inclined towards you, and your words are dear to Me. (St. Faustina's Diary, 921)

"Why do you not tell me everything that concerns you..." This may sound a bit too much. But I believe that Jesus means it! He wants us to tell Him everything, in detail. There is much He can do for us in such conversations. There is much to learn in the telling. As we recount our sorrows, our fears, our joys, our hopes and dreams, Jesus pours out His light upon them. He listens with complete love and patience. And He cares about each little thing. And, as we tell Him each thing, we learn about ourselves. Have we been jealous of someone? Jesus can alleviate our self doubt. He can show us how much we are loved and take away the need to envy someone else. Have we been angry about something. Jesus listens with peace, and slowly injects His peace into our hearts. This peace shows us the way out of anger, the way to forgive, and to be constructive in love. Have we been mourning? He holds us close to His Heart, where we find the warmth of His love, and the courage to hope in the eternal reunion that awaits us.

As Our Lady says in her February 2, 2011 message: "
Dear children, proper prayer comes from the depth of your heart, from your suffering, from your joy, from your seeking the forgiveness of sins. This is the way to come to know the right God and by that also yourselves, because you are created according to Him." When we tell Jesus everything, He can teach us about who we are, in Him. We are made according to Him. He is the blueprint of humanity, and we can find ourselves in Him. This is what we so need, to know who we are in Christ. That knowledge frees us from the lies of our enemy and sets us on the road to joy!

Jesus told St. Faustina that her words were dear to Him. He says that to us as well. He wants us to speak to him, at length, not with empty words, but from the depths of our hearts, our pain, our sorrow, our anger, our passions, our longings and our fears. He wants it all. He can transform us if we tell Him everything.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: September 15, 2017 Reflection - Our Lady of Sorrows

   
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2017

 
 

J.M.J.
September 15, 2017
Our Lady of Sorrows

Dear Family of Mary!

On this day we honor Our Lady for all the sorrows she bore in her life, sorrows at the suffering of her Son. Traditionally, there are seven sorrows that we commemorate:

The Prophecy of Simeon at the Presentation in the Temple (Lk 2:22-35)
The Flight into Egypt (Mt 2:13-21)
The Loss of Jesus in the Temple (Lk 2:41-50)
Mary Encounters Jesus on the Way of the Cross (John 19:1; Luke 23:26-32)
Jesus Dies on the Cross (Mark 15:22; John 19:18, 25-27; Mark 15:34; Luke 23:46)
Jesus Is Taken Down From the Cross (John 19:31-34, 38; Lam 1:12)
Jesus is Laid in the Tomb (Matthew 27:59; John 19:38-42; Mark 15:46; Luke 27:55-56)

Of course these are the major events that brought suffering to Mary, because they were the sorrows of a mother! The suffering of Jesus was the sorrow for Mary. And there were countless everyday events that were also tough for Jesus and Mary, moments when they were misunderstood or marginalized by family and friends, and all the sad encounters with the leaders of the Jews during Jesus' public ministry.

But we shouldn't be discouraged by these sorrows of Our Lady. She isn't. One thing we do know is that Mary was victorious over all these sorrows because she loved with God's love. She always loved and never excluded anyone from her love. And this is what she is trying to teach all of us. Jesus was the first to love, and Mary followed Him perfectly. Now she wants us to follow them both on the way of love, even in sorrow. Love conquers sorrow and actually turns it into joy!

We can use this day to allow Our Lady to show us how to turn our sorrows into joy. She shows us the way in her messages. Mary does not discount sorrow but she is not afraid of sorrows. Her love is more powerful. But she is afraid that our sorrows will damage us. She wants us to give them to her, and to turn to Jesus with trust that our sorrow can become redemptive and we can become joy!

February 25, 1999
"Dear children! Also today I am with you in a special way contemplating and living the passion of Jesus in my heart. Little children, open your hearts and give me everything that is in them: joys, sorrows and each, even the smallest pain, that I may offer them to Jesus; so that with His immeasurable love, He may burn and transform your sorrows into the joy of His resurrection. That is why, I now call you in a special way, little children, for your hearts to open to prayer, so that through prayer you may become friends of Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call."   
 
November 25, 1991 "Dear Children! This time also I am inviting you to prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving you. I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and to His wounded heart that you might be able to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one of you. Therefore, dear children, pray that from your heart would flow a fountain of love to every person both to the one who hates you and to the one who despises you. That way you will be able through Jesus' love to overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows, which is without hope for those who do not know Jesus. I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers. Pray so I might be able to help you still more. Your prayers are necessary to me. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 
March 25, 2005 "Dear children! Today I call you to love. Little children, love each other with God's love. At every moment, in joy and in sorrow, may love prevail and, in this way, love will begin to reign in your hearts. The risen Jesus will be with you and you will be his witnesses. I will rejoice with you and protect you with my motherly mantle. Especially, little children, I will watch your daily conversion with love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 
September 25, 2009 "Dear children, with joy, persistently work on your conversion. Offer all your joys and sorrows to my Immaculate Heart that I may lead you all to my most beloved Son, so that you may find joy in His Heart. I am with you to instruct you and to lead you towards eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call."

And there is the most recent message, September 2, 2017. Our Lady calls us to accept pain, endure it with love. These are the words of a strong woman, who did not respond to pain and sorrow with fear, but stood firm in faith, hope and love throughout all her sufferings. And her sorrow became great, amazing, unending joy!
 
September 02, 2017 "Dear children, who could speak to you about the love and the pain of my Son better than I? I lived with Him; I suffered with Him. Living the earthly life, I felt pain because I was a mother. My Son loved the thoughts and the works of the Heavenly Father, the true God. And, as He said to me, He came to redeem you. I hid my pain through love, but you, my children, you have numerous questions. You do not comprehend pain. You do not comprehend that through the love of God you need to accept pain and endure it. Every human being will experience it to a lesser or greater measure. But with peace in the soul and in a state of grace, hope exists; this is my Son, God, born of God. His words are the seed of eternal life. Sown in good souls they bring numerous fruits. My Son bore the pain because He took your sins upon Himself. Therefore, you, my children, apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory. My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, Heaven enters in you and you give a piece of Heaven and much hope to all those around you. Thank you."
 
Let's live this feast day with great hope, for the promise of victory over this world of woes is ours. Mary, teach us to love, teach us how to turn our sorrows and pains into the joy of love!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: September 14, 2017 Reflection - The Exaltation of the Holy Cross

  
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2017

August 30, 1984 "Dear children! The cross was also in God's plan when you built it. These days, especially, go on the mountain and pray before the Cross. I need your prayers. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 

J.M.J.
September 14, 2017
The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Dear Family of Mary!
Medjugorje is overshadowed by this huge Cross that was built at the summit of Mount Krizevac in 1933 by the villagers. The Cross proclaims that Christ is the Lord of this whole area. He is the Savior of the people and the hope of eternal life for them all. The Cross is held high above the village, as a sign to all! A sign of love and allegiance. Jesus is Savior and Lord!
Our Lady once said that she prays before the Cross on Krizevac every day for her children.  (We can join her in praying there through Mary TV's live camera feed on Cross Mountain.  Cross Mountain 
 
Let's take time today to meditate on some of Our Lady's messages about the Cross.   
They will lead us to meditate on the Cross in a more profound way. The Cross is the sign of Life for us!
 
September 12, 1985 "Dear children! I wish to tell you that the Cross should be central these days. Pray especially before the Cross from which great graces are coming. Now in your homes make a special consecration to the Cross. Promise that you will neither offend Jesus nor abuse the Cross. Thank you for having responded to my call." 
 
March 25, 1997 "Dear children! Today, in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you, dear children, during your life sustained because of your sins or the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus' passion and death on the cross, you will understand that only through prayer you, too, can become true apostles of faith; when, in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call."
  

March 25, 2015 "Dear children! Also today the Most High permits me to be with you and to lead you on the way of conversion. Many hearts have shut themselves to grace and have become deaf to my call. You, little children, pray and fight against temptation and all the evil plans which the devil offers you through modernism. Be strong in prayer and with the cross in your hands pray that evil may not use you and may not conquer in you. I am with you and pray for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 2, 2009 "Dear Children, As I look at you, my heart seizes with pain. Where are you going my children? Have you sunk so deeply into sin that you do not know how to stop yourselves? You justify yourselves with sin and live according to it. Kneel down beneath the Cross and look at my Son. He conquered sin and died so that you, my children, may live. Permit me to help you not to die but to live with my Son forever. Thank you!"

February 02, 2013 "Dear children, love is bringing me to you - the love which I desire to teach you also - real love; the love which my Son showed you when He died on the Cross out of love for you; the love which is always ready to forgive and to ask for forgiveness. How great is your love? My motherly heart is sorrowful as it searches for love in your hearts. You are not ready to submit your will to God's will out of love. You cannot help me to have those who have not come to know God's love to come to know it, because you do not have real love. Consecrate your hearts to me and I will lead you. I will teach you to forgive, to love your enemies and to live according to my Son. Do not be afraid for yourselves. In afflictions my Son does not forget those who love. I will be beside you. I will implore the Heavenly Father for the light of eternal truth and love to illuminate you. Pray for your shepherds so that through your fasting and prayer they can lead you in love. Thank you."

We adore you, Oh Christ, and we bless you, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

News and Stories from Sister Emmanuel: September Report 2017





Medjugorje, 14 September 2017
Exaltation of the Cross


Dear Children of Medjugorje, praise be to Jesus and Mary!

 
                                                               
1 - On September 2, 2017, Mirjana received her monthly apparition at the Blue Cross in the presence of a very large crowd. After the apparition, she conveyed the message that Mary gave us:
 
"Dear children, who could speak to you about the love and the pain of my Son better than I? I lived with Him; I suffered with Him. Living the earthly life I felt pain because I was a mother. My Son loved the thoughts and the works of the Heavenly Father, the true God. And, as He said to me, He came to redeem you. I hid my pain through love, but you, my children, you have numerous questions. You do not comprehend pain. You do not comprehend that through the love of God you need to accept pain and endure it. Every human being will experience it to a lesser or greater measure. But with peace in the soul and in a state of grace, hope exists; this is my Son, God, born of God. His words are the seed of eternal life. Sown in good souls they bring numerous fruits. My Son bore the pain because He took your sins upon Himself. Therefore, you, my children, apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory. My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, Heaven enters in you and you give a piece of Heaven and much hope to all those around you. Thank you."

Watch the apparition here:

2. Strange events! During this apparition, a rather common phenomenon occurred once again. But on this day, it was on a scale I had never seen before. People in large numbers began to howl blasphemies and yell like animals as soon as the Blessed Mother appeared. This went on for some time, and then everything gradually calmed down. When people who are tormented by demons are in the presence of Our Lady these demons sometimes manifest their anger in this way.
 
A priest who was there with us told me at the end of the apparition that he had perceived the coming of the Mother of God within his soul, and the luminous cloud on which she stands. This cloud slowly moved downward, pushing the demons down into the abyss, which unleashed their revolt and even prompted them to fight against each other. This priest belongs to a team that works with an exorcist every week, and he has the gift of seeing in spirit what is happening in the invisible realm. These realities are not new; the Gospel reveals a number of them to us. However in our days, with the growing number of harmful practices and the serious sins that are being committed, many people are opening their doors to Satan and his angels without being aware of it. Let us therefore pray a great deal to the Mother of God, because she was chosen by God to crush the head of the serpent. She is the best exorcist after Jesus! The Rosary prayer is a very powerful weapon against the forces of evil.

An exorcist from the diocese of Milano, Don Ambrogio Villa, reported what Satan said during a recent exorcism. Summoned to answer the questions which the priest asked him, Satan said: "For us (demons), Medjugorje is our hell on earth!" (See PS 1). No surprise there! Given the intensity of prayers surrounding the daily visits of Our Lady, given the evenings of adoration with people in their thousands, given the many sincere confessions, conversions and reconciliations, it isn't surprising that the enemy of humankind feels awful there. But we must keep watch! He is doing everything he can to oppose the plan of the Mother of God and to destroy it. This is why our Heavenly Mother is counting on us today more than ever. She asked us again this month at the Blue Cross with Ivan, to pray for the plans she has for Medjugorje and for her projects. "I need your prayers to help the world," she said at the very beginning of the apparitions. Let's not let her down, because a lot of what will happen depends on our prayers and our fasting! It actually depends on our good will to live her messages or to ignore them.


3. With whom are you suffering?
The Blessed Mother has given us an extraordinary message! Let me try to explain.
When we are seized by suffering, a wound opens up within us, and this wound makes us very sensitive and vulnerable. Delighted to see us so vulnerable, Satan takes advantage of this and tries to infect this open wound by injecting his own poisons, his own thoughts. He will make subtle suggestions to our consciences, with twisted words, using the weakness of our nature damaged by sin. He tries to make us believe that these suggestions come from us.
For instance, despair: "Considering everything you've already suffered, you just cannot endure this new blow, it's better to kill yourself!"
Doubting God's love: "You think God loves you? Not at all! Look at what he's doing to you! Don't bother going to mass or praying anymore, you're wasting your time, this God couldn't care less!"
Revolt: "Why did this happen to you? Why did God take away your young husband, while my unbelieving neighbor still has hers? How unfair!"
Bitterness: "Well now it's over, I'm shutting myself down, locking myself in. Leave me alone! My life is now meaningless,"
Hatred: "These people who hurt you so badly, they deserve your hate! Take revenge! They're going to pay for what they did, and it's going to be bloody!"
Guilt: "This trial fell on me because I deserved it! It is God's punishment, because I am no good."
The list could go on and on... Do not ever listen to any of these suggestions, even if they violently invade your mind! Satan always makes a lot of noise. If we listen to him, we suffer even more and lose peace completely. How can we discern this? By comparing these suggestions with the words of Jesus in the Gospel. Would Jesus say "You need to take revenge?" Or "You need to hate this person"? "You should shut yourself in"? "Kill yourself"? "Doubt the love of the Father"? Of course not! So we need to disconnect with those thoughts and tell Jesus "I don't want these thoughts, they are not mine.  The enemy is after me, but I chose to be with you!"
 
Jesus himself comes into our wounds, but in a completely different way. In the silence of our heart he whispers "Don't be afraid! I am with you! Your suffering is also mine. Look at my hands, my feet and my side. I too have suffered. Together, you and I, we will make it." 


And then Jesus asks us for a favor: "Give me your wound. Offer up your pain!" If we offer up our suffering to Jesus, he receives it with deep gratitude. And then what does he do with it? He puts it onto his own wounds and makes it his own! And what came out of the wounds of Christ? Bitterness, hatred, despair? Definitely not! From his wounds came healing, consolation, peace, forgiveness, all the graces and even the sacraments. His suffering is redemptive. "By his wounds we are healed" says St Paul. Therefore our suffering, when bound to His suffering, becomes co-redemptive, and we take part in the work of Redemption accomplished by Christ. There is only one Redeemer and that is Jesus Christ. But having hidden our sufferings in the wounds of Christ, we help Him to extend the grace of salvation further still! Through Baptism, we really became the body of Christ. "I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the Church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions", says St. Paul (Col 1:24). We then become co-redeemers, just as the Mother of God is the co-redemptrix (See PS 2). That is when joy flows through us, not because of a love of suffering (which would be a perversion), but for the love of Christ, seeing the fruits of salvation achieved through our offering. The soul experiences its greatest joy when it is in deep intimate love with Christ and in our participation in His work. All the joys of the world are nothing compared to this joy. Because then indeed, "Heaven enters us!"
"Apostles of my love, you who are suffering, be aware that your pain will become light and glory. My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, heaven is coming into your being, and you are giving a piece of that heaven, as well as a great deal of hope to all those who surround you."
This is the real question: when I am suffering, whose voice shall I choose to listen to? Will I suffer with the evil one who wants to destroy me, or with Jesus who wants to save me?

4. On 8 September, for the Nativity of Our Lady, Ivan received an apparition at the Blue Cross and Mary again invited us to pray for families, for young people and for holiness in families. "Dear Children, even today I would like to invite you to pray for families. Pray for holiness in families, pray for young people! My children have gone away. They have moved away from my Son Jesus. Pray, dear children! Know that I pray for all of you and intercede for you before my Son."


5. This month, just before the feast of St Padre Pio, I will be moving up from my 60s to my 70s. On this occasion, I thank my Creator for the gift of life, and for having called me to be consecrated to Him. The Spouse he gave me is my every joy. I ask Him for the ability to serve you, my dear friends, for a long time to come, if that is His will. May I ask you for a wonderful birthday present? Ask a priest to celebrate a mass for Mary's plan to be fully accomplished. May her dream come true: may Medjugorje experience again the fervor of the early days of the apparitions! THANK YOU with all my heart.


6. The next live broadcast in French will be on October 3rd. The September 3rd one can be seen here:
 
Dearest Gospa, thank you for revealing a glimpse of your secret about suffering. Yes, your children are suffering! Please come in person to collect our tears and offer them to your Son Jesus.

Jesus speaks to us today in the Gospel, straight talk about what matters:
 
 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: "Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man!
 
"Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you that are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you that are full now, for you shall hunger. Woe to you that laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets." (Lk 6:20-26)
 
Our Lady, like her Son, also tells us like it is. She wants us to know what matters:
 

July 2, 2007  "Dear children! In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The first station on that way, my children, is confession. Reject your arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children, that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that you have and that you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hands so that, together, we may climb the mountain* and win. Thank you."*Our Lady referred to this as a spiritual climb. 
 

What matters? Eternity with God in Heaven! How do we get there? By repenting and by imitating Jesus, following Him, walking His way, carrying our crosses, and growing in meekness and humility. We will climb the mountain of holiness, and win!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: September 12, 2017 Reflection - The most Holy Name of Mary! [Litany]

 
Hail Mary!!

 

J.M.J.
September 12, 2017
The Most Holy Name of Mary!

Dear Family of Mary!

On this special day, we can join all heaven in honoring Mary, by honoring her name! Her name has become for all of us a harbor of safety. We call upon her name whenever we are fearful, lonely, ill, lost or abandoned. We call upon her name when we need help for those we love. We sing out her name when we are filled with joy! And when we are near our own death, we will murmur her name over and over again, as our hope in the journey to heaven.

Our Lady told us on May 2, 2009: "...I will be with you, just call on me: 'Here we are Mother, lead us.'" Mary wants us to call on her, to ask her to come and be with us in these days. We can call out to her day and night, "Mother come, Mary come!" She will answer our call and come immediately to give us courage, wisdom, strength of heart and hope.
 
Let's pray this litany to her Holy Name! She is our Mother, our love, our Mary!
