BRAZIL WAS OFICIALLY CONSECRATED TODAY TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY


Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro, took part today, Tuesday, May 21, 2019, in the act of consecration of Brazil to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The event was held at 2:00 pm at the Planalto Palace, with the participation of several Catholic leaders and religious associations such as “Marian Congregation”, among others.

The ceremony was planned and promoted by Deputy Eros Biondini (PROS MG).

When the Blessed Virgin appeared in Fatima (Portugal), in 1917, she urged that this gesture be made in order to obtain the blessings of the Almighty, prevent communism from spreading and achieve peace.

The hashtag #OrePeloBrasil has been, since yesterday, one of the most popular trending topics.

No doubt this act will bring many blessings to that country.

Blessed Wounds


The most incredible thing of all is that it was not enough for Him to endure the worst sufferings and wounds, but that, after having risen, after having prevented His body from decaying, He kept in it His wounds and scars. And He appears with them before the angels, He considers them as an adornment and He rejoices in showing what tremendous suffering He has endured.

Of His body He did not keep anything else, because His body is spiritual, weightless and subtle, free of all corporal affliction; but He has not rejected His scars at all, He has not erased His wounds. On the contrary, He wanted to preserve them because of His love of man, because thanks to them He has been able to find the lost sheep, and with those wounds He has won over us.

What other love can be equal to that one? What object has been loved by man to that extreme? Has there ever been such a tender mother, or such an affectionate father? Or who has ever had such a great love that, in the name of that love, accepts to be wounded by the one he loves, and not only does he endures it, not only does he keep loving the ungrateful one, but he puts his wounds above all?

Saint Peter of Verona Dixit


"All saints die a holy death, because they have lived holy lives; the wicked persevere in their wickedness at the moment of death because they have persevered in it during their lives. Do you want to know how you will die? Look at how you live your life”.

A few beautiful words from Cardinal Pie on motherhood


“Let us remember these words of Christ: ‘And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.’ Every Catholic mother should say these same words.

Only God knows the influence that the sanctity of a mother has on the soul of her children. Almost all the great saints have had very pious mothers. The first grace that is given to a man is to have a mother according to the heart of God.

Dear mothers, your motherhood does not end until you have formed Jesus Christ in the heart of your children. Baptism is only a seed and the baptized is nothing but a newborn. After planting the seed, it is necessary to make it grow. That is your mission, and you will not be able to carry it out unless you yourselves are holy.”

Remarkable


At the Athos Monastery in Greece, a beehive installed in an empty church and began to create a hive with honey cells on a sacred icon. They covered it almost completely, preserving uniquely and exactly, the part where the Blessed Virgin is represented. Something to think about…
