BIG BROTHER

 

THERE ALWAYS COMES THE TIME WHEN WE FINALLY REALIZE TIME, LIFE FLIES PAST AND THERE IS NO TIME LEFT FOR WRITING LONG BOOKS. GETTING TO THE POINT WILL SURELY SAVE US TIME AND WILL MAKE THINGS EASIER FOR EACH OF US AND FOR THE REST. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO MISTAKENLY THINK THAT WRITING LONG BOOKS AND MAKING THINGS COMPLICATED WILL MAKE THEM LOOK SMARTER AND THAT THEIR WORK WILL GET MORE CREDIT FOR IT. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR CENTURIES BECAUSE PEOPLE BELIEVED IT. TODAY THAT IS OVER. WE DO NOT WANT TO READ LONG BOOKS WHICH NEITHER MOVE US, IMPRESS US NOR ADD ANYTHING VALUABLE TO OUR LIVES.

WE APPRECIATE IT WHEN SOMEONE COMES ALONG AND SAYS SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO EACH OF US WITHOUT BEATING AROUND THE BUSH, AND ONLY ACTING IN OUR BEST OF INTERESTS. WE VALUE A BOOK OR AN ARTICLE WHEN IT CONTRIBUTES TO OUR BETTER WELL BEING WITH OURSELVES AND WITH THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

HAVING THIS IN MIND THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME KEY STEPS TO INCORPORATE INTO OUR LIVES IN ORDER TO BECOME BETTER HUMAN BEINGS AND THEREFORE FEEL BETTER WITHIN OURSELVES.

1. PATIENCE. WE SHOULD BE PATIENT. WE SHOULD NOT LOSE PATIENCE NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS OR WHOEVER WE ARE WITH.

2. PEACE. WE SHOULD KEEP THE PEACE AND OUR COMPOSURE EVEN IF THE PERSON WE ARE WITH DOES NOT.

3. CHARITY. WE SHOULD ALL PRACTICE IT WHENEVER WE GET THE CHANCE.

4. THE AFTERLIFE CULTURE. WE SHOULD GET OURSELVES AS MUCH CULTURE AS WE CAN ON EVERYTHING REGARDING THE OTHER WORLD. ONCE WE BRING THAT AFTERLIFE CULTURE TO OURSELVES WE WILL THEN BE TRULY CULTURED. WE NEED TO FILL OUR VOID UP WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE. THIS SPIRITUAL VOID IS THE RESULT OF BEING PART OF A SOCIETY, WHO IS DAILY IN CHARGE OF MAKING US BELIEVE THAT BEING EDUCATED MEANS GETTING OURSELVES CULTURE ON WORLDLY, BANAL QUESTIONS. NEVERTHELESS, NOTHING IS SO FAR BEYOND FROM WHAT REALITY IS. ALL THOSE EARTHLY QUESTIONS SOCIETY MADE US BELIEVE WERE THE TOP CAN VANISH INTO THIN AIR RIGHT AWAY, BEFORE BEING AWARE OF IT. LIFE HERE IS JUST A BRIEF WALK TO REACH OUR REAL LIFE, THE ETERNAL ONE. BEFORE THIS PERPETUAL MOMENT OF GLORY COMES WE SHOULD ALL GET OURSELVES CULTURE ON EVERLASTING LIFE SO THAT WE CAN GAIN A BIT OF HEAVEN DOWN HERE AND MAKE OUR LIFE LONGER THAT WAY AS WELL, BEFORE ENJOYING LA CRÈME DE LA CRÈME OF HAPPINESS AND JOY.

5. HELPING OUT THE OTHERS. WE SHOULD BE DOING AS MUCH GOOD AS WE CAN ON A DAILY BASIS.

6. PRAYING. WE SHOULD DEVOTE SOME TIME TO PRAYING EVERY DAY. THE MORE WE PRAY THE BETTER FOR EACH OF US AND FOR THE WORLD AS A WHOLE. SAYING TWO TO THREE ROSARIES A DAY IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL.

THIS SHORT WALK AROUND HERE IS A BIG BROTHER SHOW. GOD WATCHES OUR BIG BROTHER SHOW 24 HOURS A DAY, DAY IN AND DAY OUT. OUR LORD KNOWS IT ALL ABOUT EACH OF US, EVEN THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP TO OURSELVES THAT NOBODY KNOWS. AT THE END OF THE SHOW, THAT IS, WHEN EACH OF US´TIME COMES, GOD WILL TELL US WHETHER EACH OF US IS NOMINATED FOR THE TIME OF OUR LIFE, OR WHETHER WE ARE EXCLUDED FROM IT.

IF EACH OF US WANTS TO BE NOMINATED FOR BIG BROTHER WE SHOULD LOVE EVERYONE, AND THEREFORE AT THE SAME TIME WE WOULD BE LOVING GOD AS WELL. INDEED, OUR TWO OBJECTIVES DOWN HERE ARE PRECISELY THOSE. HOW DO WE DO THAT? BEING TRUE, GENEROUS, PATIENT AND GIVING CREDIT TO WHOEVER DESERVES IT. EVERY SINGLE DAY GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW HOW FAITHFUL, OPEN-HANDED, PATIENT AND FAIR WE ARE. WHEN THIS BIG BROTHER SHOW IS OVER  OUR FATHER WILL LOVE TO NOMINATE ALL OF US FOR PARADISE. NEVERTHELESS, THERE ARE SOME RULES LIKE IN EVERY SHOW, AND THE RULES CONCERNING THIS SHOW ARE TRUTH AND LOVE. TRUTH AND LOVE GO HAND IN HAND WHEREVER WE GO AND WHATEVER WE DO. WHETHER WE ARE DEALT THREE ACES OR A BAD HAND OUR BEST CHOICE IS TRUTH AND LOVE. AT FIRST SIGHT, TRUTH AND LOVE IN MANY CIRCUMSTANCES MAY SEEM TO BE THE WRONG CHOICE. HOWEVER, IT IS SO TRUE THAT WE VERY OFTEN HAVE TO LOSE IN ORDER TO WIN LATER ON THAT I CANNOT REITERATE IT ENOUGH.

IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO FAITH. ONCE WE PLACE FAITH IN OUR LORD WE WILL ACCEPT TRUTH AND LOVE AS OUR LIFE PILLARS EVERYWHERE WE GO, AND EVERYTHING WILL FLOW SMOOTHER IN OUR LIFE. WE ARE FREE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN LOVE AND TRUTH AND HATE AND LIES, BETWEEN FREEDOM AND SLAVERY. JESUS CHRIST ONCE SAID IT AS WELL: KNOWING THE TRUTH WILL MAKE US AS FREE AS WE HAVE NEVER FELT FREEDOM BEFORE BY FAR”. EVEN THOUGH WE DO NOT HEAR ANY OF THIS ANYWHERE ANYMORE THAT IS NOT A REASONABLE EXCUSE FOR IGNORING THIS KEY KNOWLEDGE. TOMORROW IS ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD. REMEMBER OUR LORD IS ALWAYS ON OUR SIDE, AND WE WILL FEEL STRONG ENOUGH TO CHOOSE RIGHT, EVEN THOUGH WE MAY NOT SEE IT RIGHT AWAY!

LET OUR MOTHER AND CO. STEAL THE SHOW

HOW OFTEN DO WE ALL FEEL HELPLESS? HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE ENDED UP SAYING TO OURSELVES “THIS DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE”? WHEN YOU TAKE A LOT OF KNOCKS IN YOUR TIME, NOT KNOWING WHERE YOU WENT WRONG, LEAN ON OUR MOTHER, TELL HER ALL ABOUT IT AND PRAY. IF YOUR PRAYERS ARE SAID FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HEART YOU WILL FEEL FULL OF PEACE AND JOY ONCE AGAIN. PEACE IS POWER AND SO IS JOY, AND THEY BOTH COME FROM ABOVE.

WHATEVER HAPPENS TO US, NO MATTER HOW PAINFUL IT IS AND REGARDLESS HOW UNJUST WE FEEL IT IS ALL, THE STRONG ARGUMENT HERE LIES IN THAT EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO EACH OF US IS BECAUSE THAT CIRCUMSTANCE IS A MEANS TO SHOW US SOMETHING WE STILL DO NOT KNOW ABOUT, AND THAT IT IS ABOUT TIME WE KNEW. WE HAVE GOT TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES HERE. SAY WE DO NOT DESERVE THE UNJUST CIRCUMSTANCE WE ARE GOING THROUGH, LIKE IT IS OFTEN THE CASE. SAY THE ONLY WAY FOR US TO REALIZE WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN THIS LIFE, THAT IS, BECOMING A BETTER PERSON EACH DAY AS WE GO ALONG, IS GOING THROUGH THAT BITTER EXPERIENCE WHICH WE CERTAINLY DO NOT DESERVE. SINCE THIS RINGS A BELL FOR ALL OF US, THE RIGHT THING TO DO HERE IS TO GET READY TO TACKLE THE SITUATION. BESIDES OUR MOTHER´S LOVE WE ALL HAVE MORE WAYS TO HELP OURSELVES WHENEVER WE FEEL SO DOWN WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, AND THESE OTHER WAYS ARE LISTED DOWN HERE.

PRAYING IN FRONT OF THE CUSTODIA IS A WONDERFUL WAY OF FEELING RELIEVED FROM WHATEVER GRIEF. GOD TALKS TO EACH OF US IN SILENCE, WRAPPED UP IN LOVE MYSTERY”. GOD´S LANGUAGE IS SILENCE AND AS HE SPEAKS SILENCE “HE TELLS US ABOUT HIS LOVE AND EACH OF US FEELS CLOSER TO HIM”. THIS SILENCE TIME WE SPEND WITH HIM IS A MYSTERY TIME. GOD USES THIS MYSTERY TIME TO GRANT US KNOWLEDGE OF HEAVEN. IN ORDER TO DECODE GOD´S SILENCE LANGUAGE “WE CAN FOLLOW THIS PLAN ASKING OURSELVES THE FOLLOWING THREE QUESTIONS, IN FRONT OF THE MONSTRANCE (CUSTODIA):

1.IS THIS OUT OF THIS WORLD PEACE REAL? IF THE ANSWER IS AFFIRMATIVE IT IS UNDOUBTEDLY GOD” WHO GRANTED ME THAT.

 2.”DO I GET FULL OF TEMPERANCE WHEN I LOOK AT GOD HIDDEN IN THAT SMALL PIECE OF SACRED BREAD? IF THE ANSWER IS AFFIRMATIVE IT IS FOR SURE OUR LORD” WHO GRANTED IT TO ME TOO.

 3.”DO I FEEL MY SOUL GETS A PRESENCE WHICH PROVIDES ME WITH TRANQUILITY AND LOVE WHICH GO STRAIGHT TO MY HEART, AND PUT AN END TO MY FEARS AND WORRIES? IF THE ANSWER IS AFFIRMATIVE” I KNOW GOD IS RIGHT HERE SHARING THIS GLORIOUS MOMENT WITH ME, TRYING TO HELP ME THE BEST WAY HE CAN, BEARING IN MIND GOD CANNOT SHOW ME ALL HIS POWER YET, BECAUSE OF THE WICKED CHALLENGE THE EVIL ONE ISSUED TO MY LORD.

“ONCE MASS IS OVER, PRAYING FERVENTLY IN FRONT OF THE TABERNACLE WOULD WORK WONDERS IN EACH OF US. THAT TIME WE SPEND IN FRONT OF THE TABERNACLE ON THE ALTAR, RIGHT AFTER MASS, IS A MYSTERY TIME WHEN WE ARE GRANTED GRACED ASSISTANCE IN WHAT WE SPECIFICALLY PRAY FOR”.

“FOLLOWING SAINT ANNE CATHERINE OF EMMERICH´S ADVICE IS ANOTHER WISE WAY TO GET THE RELIEF WE MAY NEED. SHE SAID THIS ONCE: “GOD IS ALWAYS OUR PROTECTION IF WE DO NOT SPLIT UP FROM HIM. HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT BESIDE US, BUT EACH OF US HAS TO DESERVE HIS HELP, THROUGH OUR WILL AND OUR ACTS. WE HAVE TO GET TO OUR LORD AS HIS GRATEFUL CHILDREN AND WE SHOULD NEVER PART FROM HIM”.

“RECEIVING THE SACRAMENTS. THE EUCHARIST IS ONE OF THE BEST METHODS OF RELIEF SINCE GOD IS PRESENT IN THAT SMALL PIECE OF SACRED BREAD, RIGHT AFTER THE CONSECRATION. TAKING COMMUNION IS SURE RELIEF SINCE IT IS GOD´S LOVE”.

“LOVING EACH OF OUR BROTHERS” AROUND THE WORLD IS PUTTING INTO PRACTICE WHAT JESUS CHRIST ONCE TOLD US: LOVE EVERYONE AS YOU WOULD LOVE YOURSELF.

LET US COMMEND OURSELVES TO OUR GUARDIAN ANGEL EVERY DAY. HE IS OUR FAITHFUL FRIEND AND MOST POWERFUL ALLY, WHOSE PRESENCE IS CONSTANT IN OUR HEARTS SINCE THE FIRST DAY WE ARE CONCEIVED”.

“CHOOSING CAREFULLY OUR LIFE PROJECTS, MAKING SURE JESUS CHRIST STEALS THE SHOW EVERY TIME, EVERY DAY”.

“LOVING ILL HUMAN BEINGS”, HELPING THEM WITH THEIR NECESSITIES. EVERYONE OF US HAS GOT SOME ILL FAMILY MEMBER. WELL, THIS IS ANOTHER TEST FOR US TO TAKE. WE DO NOT WANT TO IGNORE THE TESTS LIFE SETS US BUT TO TAKE THEM. IN THE CASE OF ILL FAMILY MEMBERS WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR NECESSITIES, RUNNING ERRANDS FOR THEM, TAKING THEM FOR A WALK, TO THE MOVIES OR TO A LOVELY PARK, HOLDING THEM IN A WARM EMBRACE, ASSISTING THEM WITH OUR ARMS, SO THAT THEY CAN WALK SAFELY WHEREVER THEY WANT TO, ASKING THEM WHAT THEY WOULD LOVE TO DO, TELLING THEM WE LOVE THEM AND TOPPING IT WITH A KISS, BEING ALWAYS READY TO HELP NO MATTER HOW BUSY WE ARE OR HOW DROWSY AND COSY WE ARE ALREADY IN BED, ASSISTING THEM WITH BATH TIME, TOILET TIME, GETTING DRESSED TIME AND OTHERS. AN ILL PERSON IS LIKE A BABY. EACH OF US IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR ILL MOTHER, OUR ILL FATHER, ETC. LET US RECOGNIZE THESE SITUATIONS AS THE TESTS LIFE SETS US. AS MUCH AS WE MAY DISLIKE THE SITUATION HAVING A CHANGE OF HEART  ABOUT IT IS IN OUR HANDS. LET US MAKE A CHANGE HERE SAYING THIS TO OURSELVES : I ENJOY DOING THIS. THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. MY MOTHER (MY FATHER, ETC.) IS LIKE A BABY AND NEEDS MY HELP. I AM GOING TO MAKE HER FEEL HAPPY AND AFTERWARDS I WILL BE GLAD TO HAVE BEEN OF HELP.

“LET US OFFER ALL OUR AILMENTS, GRIEFS, TASKS AND WORRIES TO GOD FOR ALL MANKIND”. IMAGINE YOU ARE BEARING THE UNBEARABLE, WELL, THEN SAY THIS, FEELING IT FROM THE HEART: MY LORD, I OFFER YOU THIS UNBEARABLE PAIN (PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL OR BOTH), SO THAT THE GOOD ONES BEAT THE EVIL ONES ALL OVER THE WORLD, SO THAT EVERYONE HAS FAITH IN GOD, ETC. SUCH SUFFERING OFFERED THIS WAY WILL FREE US FROM MUCH OF THE PAIN, IF NOT ALL. IT WORKS WONDERS!

ONE THING IS FOR SURE, THOUGH NEITHER OF US LIKES SUFFERING, IT IS ONLY THROUGH IT, ONCE WE GIVE IT ALL UP TO OUR MOTHER AND CO., THAT WE CAN GET TO A HIGHER SPIRITUAL LEVEL AND CHANGE OURSELVES INTO BETTER HUMAN BEINGS. THIS EVOLUTION IMPLIES KNOWLEDGE. SUFFERING, THOUGH TOUGH, MAKES WAY TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR INNER SELF. OUR INNER SELF IS HOLY WHEN WE ARE BORN. HOWEVER, IT IS GOD´S COMPETITION WHO IS IN CHARGE OF DISTRACTING US FROM GOOD VIRTUES DURING ALL OUR LIFE. AT SOME POINT IN TIME MANY PEOPLE GET SO DISTRACTED THAT SOMETHING FORCES THEM TO CHANGE THEIR PLANS, SINCE THEIR LIVING WAS TAKING THEM TO THE DISTRACTION OF THEIR INNER SELF. WHAT EACH OF US IS HAS TO DO WITH OUR MOST INNER SELF. LET US CHERISH IT LIKE THE MOST VALUABLE TREASURE ON EARTH. LET US ENDEAVOR TO TRUST OUR MOTHER AND CO. TO SETTLE EVERYTHING. THEY HAVE THEIR OWN WAY OF SORTING THINGS OUT. OUR MOTHER AND CO. ARE ALWAYS READY TO PLAY FOR EVERYONE OF US NO MATTER WHAT, AS LONG AS THEY SEE WE HAVE GOT A TRUE HEART. EVERYONE OF US MEANS THE WORLD TO OUR MOTHER AND CO.

LET US KEEP CALM THINKING OUR MOTHER AND CO. ARE ALWAYS CLOSE TO US, PUTTING INTO PRACTICE THOSE RELIEVING FORMULAE, JUST MENTIONED ABOVE, AND GIVING THE BEST OF OURSELVES, THAT IS, FEELING AND PRAYING FROM THE HEART. THE ONLY WAY WE CAN TALK TO OUR MOTHER AND CO. IS NOT BY CELL PHONE OR E-MAIL BUT FROM OUR OWN HEART, THE STATE OF THE ART. TALKING TO OUR FAMILY ABOVE DOES NOT COME CHEAP. IT TAKES QUITE A LONG TIME AND PAINFUL TIMES AS WELL UNTIL WE FINALLY REALIZE OUR CELESTIAL FAMILY IS THE ONLY WAY TO FACE ANY CHALLENGE WE RECEIVE . IT IS FUNNY HOW WE ARE GROOMED TO STEAL THE SHOW, AND YET IT IS JUST THE OTHER WAY AROUND, RIGHT? YES! WE GOT IT.

OUR MOTHER´S NUMBER = THE ROSARY

WERE YOU THE APPLE OF YOUR MOTHER´S EYE?, WHAT ABOUT YOUR FATHER´S EYE?. IN ANY CASE, AS WELL AS IN ANY FAMILY WE ALSO SEE THIS EMPATHY IN OUR CELESTIAL FAMILY. JESUS CHRIST IS THE APPLE OF GOD´S EYE, THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IS THE APPLE OF JESUS CHRIST´S EYE AND THAT IS WHY OUR MOTHER´S INTERCESSION IS SO POWERFUL, WHEN SHE ADDRESSES GOD IN JESUS CHRIST´S NAME. THE WAY TO REACH OUR HOLY MOTHER IS THROUGH THE ROSARY.

THE ROSARY IS ONE OF THE MOST CHERISHED PRAYERS OF OUR CATHOLIC CHURCH. INTRODUCED BY THE CREED, THE OUR FATHER, THREE HAIL MARYS AND THE DOXOLOGY (“GLORY BE”), AND CONCLUDED WITH THE SALVE REGINA, THE ROSARY INVOLVES THE RECITATION OF FIVE DECADES CONSISTING OF THE OUR FATHER, TEN HAIL MARYS AND THE DOXOLOGY. DURING THIS RECITATION, THE INDIVIDUAL MEDIATES ON THE SAVING MYSTERIES OF OUR LORD´S LIFE AND THE FAITHFUL WITNESS OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER. JOURNEYING THROUGH THE JOYFUL, SORROWFUL AND GLORIOUS MYSTERIES OF THE ROSARY, THE INDIVIDUAL STRINGS TO MIND OUR LORD´S INCARNATION, HIS PASSION AND DEATH AND HIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD. IN SO DOING, THE ROSARY ASSISTS US IN UNITING OUR LIFE MORE CLOSELY TO OUR LORD AND IN IMPLORING HIS GRACED ASSISTANCE TO LIVE THE FAITH. WE ALSO ASK FOR THE PRAYERS OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER, WHO LEADS ALL BELIEVERS TO HER SON” (HISTORY OF THE ROSARY-EWTN.COM)

MIGUEL DE UNAMUNO (1864-1936) WAS BORN IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY. HE WAS AN IMPORTANT WRITER AND INTELLECTUAL WHO “PROPOSED THAT WE SHOULD ALL PRAY THE ROSARY, SINCE IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET TO UNDERSTAND SOMEHOW OUR LORD´S LIFE´S MYSTERY. ACCORDING TO MIGUEL DE UNAMUNO FAITH SHOULD NOT BE RATIONALIZED. THE ROSARY HELPS US REACH GOD´S LOVE AND PEACE. IN SPITE OF HAVING ADMITTED THAT HE WAS AGNOSTIC ON SO MANY OCCASIONS AND HAVING REACHED ATHEISM, WHENEVER HE FOUND HIMSELF IN A TIGHT SPOT HE WOULD EXCLAIM: “MERCIFUL MOTHER, PROTECT ME!”, UNTIL THE DAY HE FINALLY REALIZED HE HAD BECOME A SLAVE INSTEAD OF HAVING REACHED JESUS CHRIST´S FREEDOM. IT WAS THEN WHEN MIGUEL DE UNAMUNO STARTED TO PRAY AGAIN, MEDITATING ON THE MYSTERIES”.

“ OUR MOTHER ALWAYS COMES AND KEEPS OUR COMPANY. WHATEVER DIFFICULT SITUATION WE FIND OURSELVES IN. THE SITUATION MIGHT CONTINUE LONGER THAN EXPECTED, BUT WE WILL FIND OURSELVES FOCUSING ON THESE CIRCUMSTANCES IN A DIFFERENT WAY IF WE REALLY FEEL HER PRESENCE. FEELING HER COMPANY IMPLIES FEELING HER PEACE, LOVE, TENDERNESS AND PROTECTION. FEELING HER PRESENCE THIS WAY WE WILL BE READY TO ASK HER TO INTERCEDE WITH JESUS CHRIST FOR US WITH HER IMMENSE POWER, TELLING HER THIS: “MOTHER, SETTLE EVERYTHING”. OUR HOLY MOTHER HAS SUCH GREAT POWERS OF PERSUASION THAT SHE IS OFTEN ABLE TO PERSUADE JESUS CHRIST TO DO WHAT SHE ASKS HIM FOR. JESUS CHRIST LOVES HIS MOTHER SO MUCH THAT HE GRANTS HER EVERYTHING. WE HAVE GOT TO REMEMBER THAT IT WAS THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY WHO TALKED JESUS CHRIST INTO TRANSFORMING WATER INTO WINE IN THE CANAAN WEDDINGS, EVEN THOUGH JESUS CHRIST KNEW IT WAS NOT THE RIGHT TIME FOR HIM YET TO WORK MIRACLES. THE ROSARY FEELS LIKE GRASPING A PIECE OF HEAVEN WITHIN OUR HANDS INSTEAD OF A ROSARY BEAD. THIS MIRACULOUS PRAYER LETS US SUCCEED IN BEING AT PEACE WITH OURSELVES”.

“TRADITION DOES HOLD THAT ST. DOMINIC (D. 1221) DEVISED THE ROSARY AS WE KNOW IT. MOVED BY A VISION OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER, HE PREACHED THE USE OF THE ROSARY IN HIS MISSIONARY WORK AMONG THE ALBIGENSIANS, WHO HAD DENIED THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST” (HISTORY OF THE ROSARYEWTN.COM). “ACCORDING TO THE ROSARY HISTORY LEGEND AN ILLITERATE LAY BROTHER FROM THE DOMINICAN ORDER WOULD KNEEL DOWN ON HIS OWN EVERY NIGHT  BEFORE THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY STATUE, SAYING ALOUD 150 HAIL MARYS. AFTER THAT ST. DOMINIC WOULD GO OFF TO BED AND THEN GOT UP REALLY EARLY TO GO BEFORE THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY STATUE TO PRAY AGAIN, BEFORE THE COMMUNITY GOT UP. THE COMMUNITY WAS ALWAYS SURPRISED AT THE LOVELY ROSE SMELL THIS LAY BROTHER GAVE OFF AT THE PRAYING SPOT HE WAS AFTER HE LEFT. THE COMMUNITY WANTED TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE LOVELY ROSE SMELL, SO ONE DAY THEY DECIDED TO SPY ON HIM AND SAW THAT A ROSE WOULD APPEAR ON THE FLOOR WHILE ST. DOMINIC WAS SAYING A HAIL MARY. RIGHT AFTER ST. DOMINIC´S PRAYING WAS OVER ALL ROSES WOULD VANISH LEAVING A ROSE SCENT TRACE”.

“OUR MOTHER MAKES GOD A WINNER”. WE SURELY CAN HELP GOD BE THE WINNER IN THIS WORDLY BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL ONES, “IF WE PRAY THE ROSARY STARING AT THE TABERNACLE AND TELL OUR MOTHER WHAT WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT A SIMPLE PRAYER SAID STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART CAN DO. WHAT WE CAN CLAIM IS THAT PRAYING THE ROSARY IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN A KALASHNIKOV RIFLE”.

LET US PRAY OUR MOTHER ON BEHALF OF OTHERS. WE CAN ALL INTERCEDE ON BEHALF OF OTHERS, TALKING TO OUR MOTHER, ASKING HER FOR WHATEVER OTHERS NEED IN HOPE OF FINALLY PERSUADING GOD TO CHANGE HIS MIND, BEARING IN MIND WE ARE ALL THEIR BELOVED CHILDREN. GOD´S MIND HAS SOMETIMES BEEN CHANGED BY SOME OF HIS MOST FAITHFUL CHILDREN. MOSES IS THE BEST EXAMPLE REGARDING HIS PRAYERS TO GOD ON BEHALF OF THE NEEDY. DO YOU ALL HAVE OUR MOTHER´S NUMBER ALREADY?
