The Ascension of Our Lord

 By Dom Prosper Gueranger 

The sun of the fortieth day has risen in all his splendor. The earth, which shook with gladness at the Birth of our Emmanuel, now thrills with a strange emotion. The divine series of the mysteries of the Man-God is about to close. Heaven has caught up the joy of earth. The Angelic Choirs are preparing to receive their promised King, and their Princes stand at the Gates, that they may open them when the signal is given of the mighty Conqueror’s approach. The holy souls that were liberated from Limbo on the morning of the Resurrection are hovering round Jerusalem, waiting for the happy moment when Heaven’s gate, closed by Adam’s sin, shall be thrown open, and they shall enter in company with their Redeemer:–a few hours more, and then to Heaven! Meanwhile, our Risen Jesus has to visit his Disciples and bid them farewell, for they are to be left, for some years longer, in this vale of tears.

How to Persevere in Hard Times

Beloved, a number of you were puzzled and some disappointed by the previous email we sent out regarding the Warning. We lost subscribers and considerable donations over it. I do understand and often anticipate the reactions of some while still moving forward with an overall message that I think is vital for us to have, in spite, at times, of the particular messenger or presentation. More about that in our next email.

For now, dear ones, I did not want to keep this short and most precious video, received only today, to myself. It’s message is “Never give up!” “Keep going!” “You can do it!” But I think there is a further message at the very end, which I’ve noted below the video. We send it with our love and daily prayers for you all.

Did you notice that, at the third and last try, the mother bear began to turn and walk away before the baby reached the top? I think that was the saving maneuver on the part of the mother. Had she remained at the foot of the cliff as before, the baby would have strived for one more step, one more reach . . . and fell again. But this time, the mother began to walk away which made the baby realize she had better step up her courage and striving to reach her mother.

Sometimes we fall just before the goal line. If we place the goal a bit further away, we’ll have passed the (initial) goal line before collapsing into safety. God bless you and never, never, never give up. Never lose hope. Our Lord is building HIs Church and the gates of hell will not prevail. Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart will triumph!

A Warning about THE Warning!

Beloved, I never imagined I would be sending you such a video . . . until today, when I saw this one.

I believe that Our Blessed Lord is reaching out to us in every way, and from every corner of the world, to extend His mercy to every soul while there is yet time. Please watch this video to the very end of Christine’s talk; you will see how close we are to what appears to be next in God’s timetable. This is not our first warning – Our Lady has been speaking all over the world for centuries – but it might be our last. None of us knows that he has tomorrow.

Let’s live as true Catholics, beloved. Let us hold nothing back from God, and keep none of the Gospel to ourselves. We are God’s instruments to a world desperately in need of the Savior and His Church, whether they know or believe it or not. “If we keep the Gospel to ourselves,” said one dear priest, “we are thieves.”

Our love and daily prayers,

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

Urgent Message for Divine Mercy Sunday!

Beloved, the message in this video unfortunately is not known or well understood by many. Having just watched it, I cannot bear not getting it to you right away on this blessed Eve of Divine Mercy Sunday. Please trust the message of God’s truly unfathomable Mercy and how, even from your home this Sunday, you and your loved ones can receive God’s boundless gift and be forgiven of all your sins, both temporal and eternal. It is almost too good to be true!
God bless you and your families,
Mother Miriam of the Lamb of God, O.S.B.

Christ is Risen
and is
Present Among us!

The following article by Gerhard Cardinal Müller appeared in Thursday’s, April 9, 2020, edition of LifeSiteNews. Cardinal Müller served as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 until 2017. 


Dear Sisters and Brothers!

Not one of us has ever experienced a comparable situation as we are facing today. Because of the terrible Corona epidemic, public life is drastically restricted. We can no longer celebrate the liturgy in church on Sundays and even now in the Holy Week and at Easter.

PASSIONTIDE AND HOLY WEEK

 By Dom Prosper Gueranger 

The past four weeks seems to have been but a preparation for the intense grief of the Church during these two. She knows that men are in search of her Jesus, and that they are bent on His death. Before twelve days are over, she will see them lay their sacrilegious hands upon Him. She will have to follow Him up the hill of Calvary; she will have to receive His last breath; she must witness the stone placed against the sepulchre where His lifeless Body is laid. We cannot, therefore, be surprised at her inviting all her children to contemplate, during these weeks, Him who is the object of all her love and all her sadness.

Do or Die Time

Beloved, I wish I could share the video below with the entire world and every soul in it. I agree with every word and am so very grateful for the passion and urgency with which it was said. Please, whether you are a layman, priest, bishop or cardinal, and whatever your sentiments may be toward Michael Voris, I beg you to watch this talk, to share it with all you know, and, most of all, to live its message. Here at the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Israel’s Hope, we are praying with you and for you to “hold nothing back from God” even as we strive to do the same.

God bless you and grant you the grace to “offer up” Oreo cookies – and, with them, your entire life.

THE HOLY SEASON OF LENT

The following reflection from the Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, we have taken from the wonderful and faithful Timman at The Saint Louis Catholic, which he, in turn, has taken from, in his words, from the venerable Fisheaters blog:


Meditation on Death

Chapter 23 of “The Imitation of Christ”
By Thomas á Kempis (d. A.D. 1471)

Very soon the end of your life will be at hand: consider, therefore, the state of your soul. Today a man is here; tomorrow he is gone. (I Machabees 2:63) And when he is out of sight, he is soon out of mind. Oh, how dull and hard is the heart of man, which thinks only of the present, and does not provide against the future! You should order your every deed and thought, as though today were the day of your death. Had you a good conscience, death would hold no terrors for you; (Luke 12:37) even so, it were better to avoid sin than to escape death. (Wisdom 4:16) If you are not ready to die today, will tomorrow find you better prepared? (Matthew 24:44) Tomorrow is uncertain; and how can you be sure of tomorrow? Of what use is a long life, if we amend so little? Alas, a long life often adds to our sins rather than to our virtue!

Would to God that we might spend a single day really well! Many recount the years since their conversion, but their lives show little sign of improvement. If it is dreadful to die, it is perhaps more dangerous to live long. Blessed is the man who keeps the hour of his death always in mind, and daily prepares himself to die. If you have ever seen anyone die, remember that you, too, must travel the same road. (Hebrews 9:27)

Each morning…
