All Knotted Up…?

In the last few years, we discovered with much delight, the special novena to ‘Mary Undoer of Knots’ or ‘Mary Untier of Knots’ and are pleased to note that we share this favourite Marian devotion with Pope Francis (please click here for article).

The ‘knots’ in this context relates to the challenges in our daily lives for which we do not see any solution. In today’s world, the 300 year Marian devotion is fast gaining popularity far and wide, as it has been translated into several languages. It is interesting to note that it is not based on any apparition of the Virgin Mary.

While we are on the subject of Pope Francis, he happens to be the cover story of the APR-JUN 2013 issue of the 24-page Garabandal International magazine which is available online for your reading pleasure, please click here.

Our Lady’s Messages to the World

Followers of all Marian apparitions would know that wherever she has appeared, the Blessed Virgin Mary always left the visionaries with requests to pray for the good of mankind and peace in the world.

Garabandal

The messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary in her apparitions to four young children in San Sebastian de Garabandal, Spain during the years 1961 to 1965, can be read by clicking on Garabandal. 

For all who are interested in the latest updates on this subject, just click on the July-September 2012 issue of the Garabandal International Magazine for your online reading pleasure.

The spectrum of apparitions all over the world

To outline all the apparitions of Our Lady over the years, would entail a lot of research and thankfully, it has been compiled into a book entitled …For the salvation of the World…..( A Love Story about Mary). Click here for more information and a free download of the most updated book.

I take this opportunity to remind all who believe in the power of praying the rosary, that 15 August 2012 is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Till the next update, thank you for your interest in Our Lady’s messages to us.

Garabandal and its historic flow of events

A while ago, I introduced the Garabandal site via this link.

Situated in the Cantabrian Mountains of northwest Spain, San Sebastian de Garabandal is a small hamlet, unique in the history of Marian apparitions, with the Blessed Virgin Mary appearing over 2000 times from July 2, 1961 until November 13, 1965.

For the longest time, the people of this humble and remote village have gathered together daily for the recitation of the rosary and litanies of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

If this raises a curiosity for more information on the flow of events that took place….here are the links for you to click on..

For those who pray the rosary, please keep it up on a daily basis…

God Bless

A Note on Love….

In the whirlwind of all that revolves around love, Valentine’s Day has come and gone in a whiff, but love and relationships are here to stay with us all through the year.   No matter what people think of Valentine’s Day, we hope it serves itself well in reminding the world that what it needs is LOVE, sweet LOVE.

Some quotes by Mother Teresa…

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.

There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives–the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family. Find them. Love them .

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

And, while we are on the subject, here is an article Give and Take (June 2006) on Suzanne published in STAR 2.

We are grateful for the love we have from our family and friends, and from the good Lord. Amen.
