Canticle of the Sun
Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Eileen George on "suffering"
"Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disasters and war. May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate, Amen."
Have you ever wondered about the Reality beyond both joyful and sorrowful times?
At all times - the joyful and the sorrowful, God is present. For centuries and even now, our Blessed Mother Mary and our Lord Jesus have and continue to appear to persons around the world. We are reminded that God exists and that He loves each and every one of us and invites all of us, the whole human family, to change our hearts, and to return to His Love now so as to know, love, and serve Him in this life so as to be happy with Him forever in Heaven. In Our Blessed Mother's words, "I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God".

John 20: 19-31
Just as praying the Rosary with our Blessed Mother draws us closer to Jesus, "signal graces" and "miracles" should lead one to greater love of God and neighbor, helping remind one and focus one's attention on God as central in one's life. Above all the "signal graces" and lower case "miracles", we should always remember the great upper case Miracle of Jesus' Resurrection, and His Real Presence in The Eucharist.
Where to go from here?
God invites us to meet Him in prayer - pray the Rosary with Mary our Blessed Mother, in reading and reflecting on His Word - the Bible, in the Church - meet Him in the Sacraments - meet Jesus in the Eucharist and in Reconciliation, to change our hearts. To work for justice and peace, and to share His Light, Love, and Peace with spouse, children, families, friends, co-workers, colleagues, teachers, students, neighbors, the sick, and needy. We can look to Mary and all the Saints for their example and intercession. We are invited to consecrate ourselves and our families to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Consider enrollment as a member of the Knights of Immaculata as an aid to sanctification of oneself, family, community, and the world.
John 19: 25-27
+ St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
