Beloved, I am aware that the previous video I attempted to send was taken down before it reached most of you. I have just now come across the video below which I wish could be shared with the entire world. I truly believe that our time on earth, at least the time in which we can live out our Faith apart from persecution, is growing shorter with each day. What of those who have never heard the Gospel? What of those (including members of our own family and friends) who will die without Christ?
A few figures should haunt us:
- The world population as of today is close to 8 billion
- The estimate of those who have never heard the Gospel is 2 billion
- An estimated 70,000 die each day without Christ
I cannot imagine any Christian responding, “What does that have to do with me?” How is it possible that the grace of God, the free gift of salvation in Christ, has reached us and stopped there? How can we, by our silence or by our unChristian behavior, rob others of what we have so freely received and which is meant for every creature?
We MUST share the Gospel. And to the extent we are hindered, support those who will give their very lives to the end that souls can be saved.
Here in Beloit, Kansas, our beginning Priory will hold only 13 women. I am asking Our Lord for an army – as many as God would call. We have plenty of land to build a monastery – we need only resources to build and women who will give all to live for Christ, for the restoration of the family and the salvation of millions of souls.
Please watch the video below and then send it to every young man and woman whom Christ may be calling to the priesthood and consecrated life.
We have little time left – truly, today is the day of salvation. We have only to hear His Voice and heed His Call while it is yet day.
We pray God’s blessings on each of you and your families that your deepest needs may be met in Him.
Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.
