URGENT! God bless you.

Beloved, I just watched the video interview below between LifeSiteNews and Jason Jones of the Vulnerable People Project. I know Jason and can vouch for his apostolate and for every attempt they have made, often at the risk of their lives, to assist the vulnerable all over the world, and especially now amidst the devastation in Gaza. 

It is somewhat frustrating on this end to be able to do so little, if anything, to stop the atrocities and rescue starving and dying families. Of course, we can pray and I pray we do. However, we can also give financially through LifeSite’s LifeFunder which will go directly to the Vulnerable People Project, assuring that every penny will be used for food and aid to the people of Gaza, rescuing as many lives as possible from that nightmare.

It is an unimaginable situation that few of us can picture finding ourselves in. Regardless of how we, individually, understand or see the war in Israel at present and who is responsible for what, I agree with Jason Jones that we must, must I believe, not sit back simply watching the news and letting our brothers and sisters starve and  be killed off. It is rare, as most of you will know, that I put out a plea for this sort of help. But I ask, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for every life, that we do not delay in assisting Jason in his work, regardless of what we are able to give. 

Below is the video between John-Henry Westen and Jason Jones, and here is the LifeFunder link for donations: https://www.lifefunder.com/vppgaza. May the  Lord of Life be pleased, with our help, to raise millions through the efforts of Jason Jones and LifeSite. With one third of children under age two and a fourth of the population reaching starvation, it is impossible to give or to raise too much. I believe this is a great opportunity for our own children, regardless of age, to contribute some of their allowance, for a family to give up dessert for a week, or to sell some items not used during the past year, and send the funds to the VPP through this LifeFunder.

May Our Lord bless your generosity and grant you the blessings of His Sacred Heart for assisting with this crises.

Our love and prayers to each of you on this most blessed Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker,
Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.

I cannot say it better!

Beloved, the article below from LifeSiteNews by Faustina Bowen captures everything needed for families not only to survive in this hostile wilderness, but to thrive. The Lord is on our side and will never cease to supply our every need as we walk with Him and live for Him as the true soldiers of Christ we are called to be.

Strong families will be the ones to save the Church during these troubling times 

Families draw their power from the fact that they are the ones who really control the future. Fathers and mothers have the power and the duty to raise the next generation of soldiers for Jesus Christ. 

(From LifeSiteNews Wed Feb 14, 2024 – by Faustina Bowen)

“No matter how heroic some Jesuits are today, the Church of Rome has lost to others the invaluable support and services of the one body of men that, in its pristine form, could have halted the destruction wrought by those hurricanes of change that began in the sixties… What emerged… was liberal minded partisanship that quickly solidified into a totalitarianism of thought, an approach so dogmatic that what at the beginning seemed a refreshing clarity of vision, quickly became a trap of self-righteous, self-justifying moralism. All who disagreed were considered to be immoral. Conservatism or traditionalism was not tolerated. Those who were guilty of either suffered… Some remained Jesuits, but took refuge among more tolerant clerical colleagues in parish work and elsewhere… The Jesuits could once more have made the difference between a Church in shambles… But the Jesuits will not be the ones to save the day now for the Roman Catholic Church.” 

Do these excerpts from Malachi Martin’s book The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church sound at all like what we are witnessing today, not in just the Society of Jesus, but the Church as a whole under a Jesuit leader? To me, the tactics used against anyone who questions the regime are strikingly similar to this description of what happened to many Jesuits after the Second Vatican Council. But since I don’t want this to be a depressing article, I want to focus on the last sentence of the quote, “But the Jesuits will not be the ones to save the day now for the Roman Catholic Church.” This will, of course, bring up this question: Who will it be then? Now, before you start thinking of religious orders, look much closer to yourself. To your families. I can’t help but feel like good, strong families will be the ones to save the Church during this troubling time in history.

On the Blessing of Same-Sex Unions

Dearest Family, upon entering the Catholic Church from my Jewish heritage (by way of Evangelical Protestantism) I knew I had found the fulfillment of Judaism and the full measure of Christianity. I knew the Scriptures. I knew that the Apostles wrote of the destruction that would come upon the Church in the last days (see 2 Peter, Chapter 2 for an apt description of our times). What I was unprepared for was the deeply shameful and grievous situation of our own shepherds not only defecting from the faith, but creating an all-out war against the Faith, teaching utter heresy and leading millions of souls astray.

Where are our good shepherds? Where are the men after God’s own Heart? Why do you remain silent? Where are those who still believe and will dare to live their vocation of saving souls in the midst of these evil days? Why have you abandoned the Christ Who ordained you to follow HIM?

Here below is one who has not abandoned his Faith or his Faithful. May his deep faith, example and love for the Flock of God encourage every priest and bishop in their holy calling to follow the High Priest, even to the point of death.

Oh For Such Shepherds!

Beloved, we have not been in the habit of sending out many emails. However, of late, with the growing confusion in the Church and, in particular, the destruction of the family reaching at what seems an all-time high, I want to pass on every sign of goodness, truth and hope given us. Here is one such magnificent sign from LifeSiteNews on the importance of the family as the very cell of civilization and of prelates who actually believe the Faith!

God bless you and your families as we approach Gaudate Sunday, beginning the second half of Advent!

In Time for Christmas!

Beloved, our Advent/Christmas newsletter (our first newsletter since last Christmas!) will be in the mail by the end of next week. It will include the attached product brochure – a 50-70% off sale on all items!

As you can guess, we will not be making a profit on any of the items, but in the process of unpacking at our new location in Winnsboro, we realized that we yet have quite a supply of wonderful books, CDs, DVDs, holy cards and other items that are of no use to anyone if they stay with us. So we’ve put together this brochure to send them out to as many as wish them, as long as the supply of each item lasts. You will see that the DVD of the highly acclaimed film, “Unplanned,” is free – because we received a large quantity of them as a gift! 

Our website is not yet set up as a “store”; so we need to do this the old-fashioned way of printing out the brochure and mailing it to us at our new address together with your check or credit card information. If you do not have the ability to print it out, simply use any paper to list what you wish and mail it to us with your check or credit card information asked for on the brochure.

You will see that we’ve somewhat categorized the products (e.g. Christmas, Easter, etc.); however, the products can be used as gifts (or for yourself!) for multiple purposes and seasons (especially the Easter products while yet available at these prices).

You are in our prayers for a most blessed and holy Advent, followed by a blessed and holy Christmastide. Our newsletter, coming soon!, covers the whole of Advent through the beginning of Christmas on Christmas Eve all the way to its traditional end on the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple (Candlemas) on February 2nd.

We are the richest people in the world to have the faith that has been freely given to us. A thousand eternities would not be sufficient to thank the Divine Infant who came to die . . . for us, and for our salvation. I pray we will use every circumstance, especially the increasingly dark and evil circumstances of our day, to spread the whole Gospel to the whole world, and to every soul who comes our way.

Our love, prayers, and deepest wishes for a most blessed Holy Season for you and your loved ones,

Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.

The Truth About Bishop Strickland

Beloved, you are probably aware by now of the Holy Father’s removal of Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, which took place last Saturday. As a relatively new religious congregation invited to the Diocese of Tyler by Bishop Strickland a little more than a year ago, we are understandably sick at heart. But we know that it is Christ Who is building His Church, against which the gates of hell will not prevail.

Among the numerous articles, posts and podcasts that have circulated this week, I wanted to be sure you watched the one below. I have been in Tyler long enough now and have been with Bishop Strickland often enough to know the truth which Deacon Keith Fournier speaks. One can match any article or podcast against this one, spoken by one who is closest to Bishop Strickland and seconded by all who love and truly know this holy man of God.

Please do pray for Bishop Strickland, his successor, and the sheep of his diocese who are downtrodden at present by a hierarchy who seems bent on promoting those in grave sin and destroying those who are strong, orthodox and faithful to the teachings of Christ.

May Our Lord and Our Lady be honored by our love
and trust as we await His Holy Will.
Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.
