Let us Walk With Mary 

Who always leads us to Her Son

Only God Can Save Us

The Name Jesus means God saves, or God is our salvation and how true that is.  How true to that the world needs the saving power of God more than at any time in history.   We know the threats that are so close to us today, with various nations aggression and even greater threats of aggression.  Then there is the threat to humanity due to the moral degradation of society.  We could go on, but there is little point in focusing on the turmoil that surrounds us.  

Now is not the time to be disheartened but the time to turn with ever greater  confidence in God, knowing that the worse things may be in the world, the closer comes the time of His victory.  If we want to see the victory then we really do need to turn to the Mother of God, who will encourage

us, Her people, God’s people. As  she said in Fatima:  “In the end, My Immaculate Heart Will Triumph!”  

How will this triumph take place?  When people  really start to live in union with God, truly taking Mary into their hearts and allowing Her to lead us, guide us, and direct us to live fully as Her Children, as Children of God.  From this union of love comes the spontaneous desire to do what She asks of us.   We know what She asks in so many apparitions:  pray the Rosary, go to the Eucharist, benefit fully from the sacraments, be converted, live as true Children of God, and make processions in Her honour.

Volumes and volumes of books have been written that recount the incredible miracles that have been done when people have turned to Mary in a PUBLIC display of honour.  It is as if the Heart of God is so touched by expressions of love and confidence in Our Lady.   

We don’t have time to recount all the amazing victories won through PUBLIC honour of Our Lady here are just a few:  from the first siege of Constantinople 678, to Lepanto, the siege of Austria, the Prussian war of 1870 in France  (see Pontmain), in 1914 in the “Miracle of the Marne” in the routing of Russian forces from Poland in 1920, the liberation of Austria from Communism in the 1950’s.  These are just a snapshot of some of the more incredible historic events.  So do not have any doubt:  To take part in a beautiful Mass then to Walk in procession in honour of Our Lady is very important and most powerful.   You will be delighting our all powerful God and drawing down his benediction upon us.  

Throughout  history some of the most incredible interventions came after processions in Her honour. How desperately we need Her intervention and Her protection today. None of us know how long we have on this earth.  For some of us this may be the last opportunity to thank Our Lady and to implore God’s Mercy in this beautiful way.    Let us gather on Sunday 17th March in a show of great love, devotion and confidence in Our Blessed Mother, again asking Her powerful intercession.   There will be  prayers, Mass, street procession and finally a solemn entrustement of all present to Our Lady.   Let us all gather together and pray that Our Lady will once again bring Her children and the Church to a marvelous  renewal and victory.
