Total Consecration

For the Living Rosary under the late Brother Denis, I was  given the third joyful mystery to meditate on daily. It is the Birth of Jesus, and so often, it is just too overwhelming when one considers that the good Lord sacrificed His life to ransom us all.

For a long time now, I have always prayed for the intentions in my heart. It is not necessary for me to tell our Lord as He already knows all the intentions in my heart.  What He wants is for us to have the faith to  believe and to trust that when we ask for something that is not against His will, it will be granted. Have I not been surprised? Indeed, I have, and not once or twice but often, and so, I just am so overwhelmed that I simply wish I could thank our Lord for being so gracious and so merciful. 

The thing is that I know that no matter what I do, it is not ever going to be enough. . . How can I ever repay our Lord? It is only right what is said in the bible that I no longer have my own life. It belongs to Jesus. He paid for our lives with His own. He laid it down and rose from the dead on the third day.

Jesus, I am all Yours and to You do I belong, now and forever! TOTUS TUUS!

True Devotion to Mary

These slides simply remind us of the true devotion to Mary. To be devoted to Mary is one short cut to being closer to Jesus, and her way is surely the shortest way. Brother gave this talk to mostly Legion of Mary people and I am happy to acknowledge that I have been with them as an Auxiliary member since my baptism some 24 plus years ago. I make it a point to pray the rosary before the Blessed Sacrament, as far as possible. 

Below is the PIETA which shows us how much our Lady also had to suffer in order to remain close to her Son Jesus.
