Dear children, I love you all. All of you, all of my children, all of you are in my heart. All of you have my motherly love, and I desire to lead all of you to come to know Gods joy. This is why I am calling you. I need humble apostles who, with an open heart, will accept the Word of God and help others to comprehend the meaning of their life alongside Gods word. To be able to do this my children, through prayer and fasting, you must learn to listen with the heart and to learn to keep submitting yourselves. You must learn to keep rejecting everything that distances you from Gods word and to yearn only for that which draws you closer to it. Do not be afraid. I am here. You are not alone. I am imploring the Holy Spirit to renew and strengthen you. I am imploring the Holy Spirit that, as you help others, you too may be healed. I am imploring Him that, through Him, you may be Gods children and my apostles.
The Holy Hour of Grace
This is a very powerful devotion to our Lord and his Blessed Mother.
On Dec. 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, make a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament between noon and 1 P.M. I know this may not be possible for many but I do not doubt that God will hear our prayers if we pray at work. Begin the Holy Hour by praying Psalm 51 three times with arms stretched out (like Jesus on the cross). Psalm 51 is also known as the Miserere and is a psalm of repentance. After that just spend the Holy Hour however you like with your prayers of petition, thanksgiving, etc. That is all that is to it.
For some reason God responds to this devotion!
Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness;
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
10 Create [j]in me a clean heart, O God,
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation;
18 By Your favor do good to Zion;
A little History:
During the period of November 24 1946 to December 8, 1947, the Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Pierina in a little church in Montichiari, Italy, eleven times.
On the first appearance the Blessed Mother told Sister Pierina She wanted to be known as the Mystical Rose and that an hour of grace should be kept at noon, December 8th, in all the Catholic Churches of the world. The Blessed Mother wanted this to be known through all Italy, and the entire world.
It was November 16, 1947 when Sister Pierina was finishing Her Thanksgiving after Holy Communion when she saw a great light. She then saw a vision of the Blessed Mother as the Mystical Rose.
Sister was so deeply moved by the stunning beauty of Our Lady that she began talking to Her. All of a sudden a gentle force made her kneel down in front of Our Lady. The Blessed Mother spoke these words. “My Son is so greatly offended by the sins of impurity. He is already planning to send the deluge upon the people, for their destruction, but I have asked Him to show mercy, and not send the destruction. So that is why I have appeared, to ask for penance and atonement for the sins of impurity.”
On the 22nd of November, Sister Pierina felt the overwhelming urge to go to church at 4:00. The Mother Superior, four Sisters, and a group of friends accompanied her. They were all saying the Rosary when the Blessed Mother appeared as before.
Again, Our Lady asked for penance. She said, “Penance is nothing more than accepting all our crosses daily willingly. No matter how small, accept them with love.” At this time She told Sister Pierina to come again on December 8th at noon. “This will be my Hour of Grace.” The Sister asked how she was to prepare for this Hour of Grace? To which the Blessed Mother said, “with prayers and penance. Pray the 51st psalm with outstretched arms three times. During the Hour of Grace, many spiritual graces would be granted. The most hard-hearted sinners will be touched by the grace of God.” The Blessed Mother promised that whatever a person asked her for during this Hour of Grace (even in impossible cases) would be granted to them, if it was in accordance with the Will of the Eternal Father.
On the morning of December 8th, people began arriving at the little church at 8:00 in the morning form neighboring towns. By noon, some 10,000 people had gathered to see the Blessed Mother… In the most gentle and loving voice, Our Lady smiled ad began to speak [to Sister Pierina]: “I am the Immaculate Conception, the Mother of my Beloved Son, Jesus. I want to be known as the Mystical Rose. My wish is that every year on the 8th of December, at noon, an Hour of Grace will be installed. Many spiritual graces and physical blessings will be received by those who pray, undisturbed, during this hour.”

And then there is Mary…….
This journey of faith cannot be taken without looking at Jesus’ mother, Mary. Why?
Because every strength we need, all the courage we need, the faith we need, shines through her life. She said “yes” to an angel and didn’t ask anyone to help her make that decision. She had courage. She courageously told her parents what the angel asked of her, risking their questions and disbelief. She had strength. She told Joseph her story, knowing he would find it hard to believe and may, in his sorrow and anger, leave her. She had faith. And because she is so loved by our God, he gives her a direct line to us.
Ask her to guide you, to strengthen you, to fill your faith jar up to the brim.
“Hair Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee.” (the angel’s greeting) Lk. 1:28
“Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.” (Elizabeth to Mary at her Visitation,) Lk.1:42
Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen. (the church’s reflection on Mary’s intercessory role as the Mother of God)
Repeat, repeat, repeat for peace of mind.
