As the world careens into a hell-like state, many upright and honest people ask themselves:
Amazingly enough the answer was given to
us by Our Lord Jesus Christ and brought to our attention by His Most
Holy Mother, the Virgin Mary.
Yes... but exactly how?
And that, brethren is the purpose of this brief document.
Neither we - nor anyone else! - have anything to add to the answers
already given by Heaven to mankind, through the Holy Scriptures and
through legitimate Manifestations from the Virgin Mary and from Our
Lord Jesus Christ Himself. However, we are here to assist the faithful
in seeing how important it is to follow Heaven's instructions.
The Faithful, and the agnostic as well, should review and grasp:
First: The Highlights of the
Marian Messages since early 19th century: what was requested and what
for (1). This will help understand the "What"
and "Why" of the problems mankind was, and is, facing and the way to
Second: Mankind's response,
or lack of it (2), to said Marian Messages
should be carefully reviewed. This will help understand why the world
continues in an all-encompassing downward spiral. It will show those
who care and are interested that: It is not because God does not
care nor because His solutions (3) are not good
that "the civilized world" is a complete and absolute failure (as
failed as the Biblical Tower of Babel project).
Third: The full meaning and
implications of all communications from Heaven (4).
Fourth: The spiritual/supernatural
mechanism that is activated when we follow the instructions from Heaven
and practice our Faith as God intended it to be practiced - with Him as
the True Foundation of Any Faith (5), in which
Goodness, Mercy and Charity are at its core.
Fifth: "Why" God allows
catastrophes upon mankind (6); you may then
review some modern examples with the light of this new gained
Sixth: The reality that the worst
sin than anyone could have possibly committed is but a grain of sand
when compared with the oceans of the Mercy of God (7).
Therefore, a repentant and contrite soul always has recourse to Divine
Mercy in an effort to reduce, or completely eliminate, the consequences
of Divine Justice (8).
Key devotions and prayers to "activate" and "potentiate" Heaven's
[In parenthesis, next to each devotion, we suggest the frequency and
A. The meditated Holy
Rosary (9). This is prayer most endorsed by
Heaven. (At least one mystery per day)
B. The meditated Stations of the Cross (10). (Once a week on Fridays)
C. First Friday Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (11). (First Fridays of the month)
D. First Saturday Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (12). (First Saturday of the month)
E. For Catholics - the Key Sacraments (13). (Reconciliation: Once per month; Holy Communion: At least once per week)
F. A very edifying Daily Invocation (14).
G. The Chaplet of Mercy (15). (*) (Daily: Preferable sometime between 2 and 4 PM while meditating on the Passion of Christ)
H. The Chaplet of Tears (16). (Once per week around midweek)
I. Scriptural Readings (Daily - From daily Mass schedule: Old and New Testament)
J. Renew your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Once per month)
K. Consecrate your children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Renew it once per month)
(*) June 19, 2009 - We have just found out that the Chaplet of Mercy has been pulled from the Marian Site and is very hard to find. The reason? Considering the times we are living in, it just confirms that indeed it works and that is a very powerful prayer. Therefore, we have wasted no time, and have prepared a page on the Chaplet of Mercy.
We understand that some of you will say: "I just don't have
the time for this!"
Therefore, miguel de Portugal has the following to
share with you:
1. Before he left "the world" completely
to follow Him, m de P (17) was practicing two
(not one, but two!) full time professions with offices 50 miles (80 km)
apart. However, he did all of the above plus more - totaling over 4
hours per day. Yet, somehow, time just seemed to "appear" to fulfill
his professional, family and social duties and responsibilities. Why?
Quite simple: When you put God FIRST AND ABOVE ALL, He will see that
all else you have to do will somehow get done and even better than you
could before. This not a pious text book story - m de P lived it - day
in and day out - it works!
2. Consider how much free time the
surviving victims of the SE Asian tragedy have now. Did you notice how
many thousands greeted the New Year in prayer and candle light vigils
instead of partying?
If you follow our recommendations voluntarily
- the beneficial results will be far greater than imagined and the pain
will be quite minimal.
Summarizing, m de P wants you to know
that: When one places God First and Above All, as the modified
saying goes, one "can have his cake and eat it too... and not even gain
weight!" But as always - the choice is yours!
Do not focus on the calamities that afflict the world today. They
are "here to stay" and will increase to unprecedented levels.
Utilizing US colloquialisms: Do not host: "Pity Parties" and "Ain't
It Awful Parties"
Do not focus on who is primarily responsible (18)
for what is taking place. It is too late for "Monday Morning
Quarterbacking". God will dispense whatever Justice is due to whom He
We recommend: "Do not focus on who is primarily responsible", but
we do not say "Do not be aware and acknowledge" this fact. That
would be Denial (19) and you would fall into the
same centuries old trap. One must be aware to be able to cooperate in
correcting what the past, present and future challenges were, are and
may be through focused prayer and acts of reparation.
"Here" (turn on the Late News to be reminded of what "Here" really
means) is where we are; This (20) is what is
coming upon humanity; do not sit on your hands waiting for The Vatican
to say a "magic word" - there will be none forthcoming.
Did not Jesus say:
