There is much confusion over what it means to love Jesus. It is not primarily about feelings, thoughts, or scriptural interpretation. The Apostle of Love teaches us the essentials. To love Jesus we must keep His commandments and we must love our neighbor (emphasis on the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy). Ask Baby Jesus for the grace to love H…
 
One Holy Communion worthily received suffices to detach the soul from this earth and inflame it with the love of God. So strive to receive Our Lord worthily. Have a pure heart. Your life will change for the better the more you believe in Our Lord – Truly Present in the Holy Eucharist – and the greater your desire to receive Him with increased love,…
 
Our Lady of Guadalupe’s most precious words (1531) are remarkably similar to the words Pius IX employed for the ending of his infallible definition of the Immaculate Conception (1854). Her apparition and the dogma serve the same purpose. It’s not coincidental that these two feasts closely follow one upon the other (Dec 8, Dec 12) – or that they cel…
 
The first example we receive of honoring Our Lady comes from the angel – who was sent by God Himself. The marvelous prayer of the Hail Mary is given to us by God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. A practical consequence of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception is that in dangers, difficulties, doubts and fears we turn to Mary. Fly with utter confid…
 
How grateful we are that God granted Our Lady the singular privilege of being Immaculately Conceived. This Mystery manifests God’s infinite power and marvelous mercy. In Her, sin is utterly crushed. By this grace we, who are not sinless, can fight more courageously and tenaciously against sin. By the grace of the Immaculate Conception, pray for [1]…
 
The same Jesus born in Bethlehem comes to us in Holy Communion. He is mystically born anew in every Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. And if He comes, it is for a purpose. He wants us to be prepared to welcome Him. Through Holy Communion, Jesus is born, develops and perfects Himself within us. Believing this – and acting in accordance with this belief – …
 
As best you can, stay focussed throughout this Advent on the three comings of our Savior Jesus Christ. It is perhaps during this season that one most dramatically sees how far the Catholic faithful are from the Catholic Faith. Jesus is calling us and we don’t hear. Keep the celebrations for the Christmas season (after Dec 25). During Advent, focus …
 
Holiness consists in being united to Christ. [1] Jesus Himself calls us to holiness through the Church Triumphant and the Church Suffering. [2] We are the Church Militant because we are fighting for what? for holiness! To be Catholic is to strive to be holy. God’s plan for our holiness is His Church, and outside His Church there can be no true holi…
 
Christ the King commands us to be faithful to truth and to life. Archbishop Vigano has written an open letter which I strongly urge you to read. The potential evil of the vaccine far outweighs the potential good. Human babies are being murdered in the continued production of the vaccine. This scamdemic is filled with misinformation, lies, evil, and…
 
God created the angels for His glory, for their happiness, and to help us in saving our souls. The angels appear repeatedly in Sacred Scripture and the Lives of the Saints. They are a great marvel of God’s invisible creation: living images of God’s Infinite Beauty who reflect His Divine Perfections. Yet so often we neglect them and fail to render t…
 
A basic rule of the spiritual life is to imitate Jesus and Mary. Marian devotion is not something “invented” by Catholics. Rather, Christ requires it — for He Himself gave His Sorrowful Mother to us at the foot of the Cross. We can never fully appreciate her sorrows for we can’t fathom the depth of her love for her Son. However, we can pray for man…
 
God speaks to you in the lessons for Mass. Today, God calls you to practice four specific virtues: Humility, Meekness, Patience and Charity. These are the four virtues which Our Lord most clearly exhibits in His Passion. You are called to walk worthily in your vocation, and although we have different vocations, each Christian is called to deny hims…
 
The holy name ‘Mary’ has many meanings. Three notable ones which demand our reflection are: Enlightener, Star of the sea, and Sea [of all graces]. Heed St. Bernard’s advice: “In dangers, doubts, and difficulties, think of Mary. Call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from thy lips; never allow it to leave your heart.” This continual reliance upon O…
 
Within St. Anne’s womb, the Blessed Virign Mary was continuously occupied with ten pious exercises. These express the sentiments in her Immaculate Herat. They did not require external activity as she was still a tiny infant. Thus, we can practice them at Mass. We will thereby more actively participate at, and derive more spiritual fruit from, the H…
 
St. Paul exhorts us to “walk in the Spirit” which is another way of saying “be devoted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” The Twelve Fruits of the Holy Ghost are a perfect description of Mary’s Heart. Choose one of those gifts (e.g. benignity, goodness, longanimity, mildness, faith, modesty, etc.) and ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to form this virtue …
