Weekly News Flash from the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena, Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Dear Patti,Loving greeting from the ULRA Namibia! Since our National Congress in the beginning of the month, the new recruitments are spreading like bush fire. The impact that came out of our gathering is just overwhelming. I continue thanking Our Lady for her continuous interventions. Yesterday, our promoter Vicky from up north was invited to share her experiences at the Rundu ULRA Congress. At the end of her talk, she registered over 50 new members. They were all excited to receive their membership cards, Rosaries, Medals and Scapulars. I gave out all the materials you sent me last time. It is not safe for a box from outside the country to be delivered to remote villages. She asked me to request the items and bring them to her by end of November when I go to visit them. May I please ask for 1000 of each! I will help her to send their names through email. Here are the photos from our Congress. < Sr. Margaret Uutoni, National Director of ULRA – Windhoek – NAMIBIA >


Nick is sending you a message:

Thank you, dear Patti and all ULRA, for your prayers. Now, I can walk again.

Thank you, St. PHILOMENA, for helping and changing my mind. We love you very much.

Thank you, JESUS and Mary, for the time you have given for me to better prepare my soul before before I come in front of YOU! GLORY TO YOU!!!

This is one of the wonderful interventions of St. Philomena for us, the sinners in East.

Thank you, St. Philomena! Ave Maria Gratia Plena!



Performing All Our Actions FOR Mary

Through this devotion, we become the slave and possession of this august Queen. It is, therefore, just that we do everything FOR HER, that we work for Her and for Her interests and glory. We do not take Her for our last end, which can be only Jesus Christ, Our God, but for our proximate end, considering Her the most perfect means to go easily and safely to Jesus.

In all our actions, let us guard against our greatest enemy: SELF-LOVE. To renounce and detest this enemy in every action is all-important for a child and slave of Mary. Experience teaches that only too often self-love is the motive and object of our actions. It operates in a hidden way that is not easily perceptible. Works of self-love are rotten fruit which we dare not give to Mary. Let us frequently say from the bottom of our heart:

“O my dear Mistress, O my Queen, for love of thee, I go here or there; for love of thee, I do this or that; for love of thee, I suffer this pain or that wrong,” etc.

Admonitions of De Montfort

Remember, chosen soul, not to approach the Lord except by Mary, that is, through Her intercession, through Her mediation, through the high esteem in which She is held by Him. Do not imagine that it is more perfect to go directly to Jesus, directly to God Himself, in your actions and intentions. If you go to Him without Mary, your actions will be of less value and merit than if you act through Mary, for then it is She who works in you and your actions will be ennobled, and made very pleasing to God.

Beware, however, of doing violence to yourself in order to taste and feel devotion, or of craving for consolation; on the contrary, say and do everything in that pure faith which Mary had on earth, and which She will communicate to you in due time. Leave to your sovereign Queen the enjoyment of the Beatific Vision, the transports, the joys, the pleasures and the riches of Heaven. Content yourself with pure faith and say, “Amen! Whatever Mary, My heavenly Mistress does, so let it be!”

Take great care not to be downcast, should you not enjoy the sweet presence of the Blessed Virgin in your interior! This Grace is not given to all. But, when God in His great mercy favors a soul with this Grace, she can very easily lose it again, unless she be faithful in frequently renewing her interior recollection. Should this happen to you, then immediately return to your heavenly Mother with tranquility of heart and ask Her forgiveness.

Experience will teach you a great deal more in this regard than I can tell you and, if you are faithful to the little I have taught, you will find in this practice such treasures of Grace that your heart will be amazed and filled with joy. Let us labor, then, beloved soul. Let us act in such a way that by the faithful practice of this devotion, the soul of Mary may be in us to glorify the Lord and the spirit of Mary, to rejoice in God Our Savior!


When we love, we remember, and this memory – the effect of love – is not a barren thought. It resolves itself into DEEDS for the loved one. They are at peace for they have escaped Hell forever. But, they are sentenced for a time to expiating fire. Behold their plight and helplessness. Listen to their lamentations. In sympathy and charity, hasten to their assistance.

Enroll your Departed Loved Ones in thirty days of Requiem Masses in Ukraine. Fr. Ivan Kolodiy has arranged for these Masses to be offered from 1st to 30th November. The names you send will be placed upon the Altar during this time. A Mass card will be sent out to you for each one you enroll.

SUGGESTED STIPEND DONATION: $5.00 each for Enrollment in the NOVEMBER Bouquet of thirty days of Requiem Masses for your departed Loved Ones: PRINT VERY CLEARLY EACH NAME!

Share Your Gift of Faith

For centuries, our cherished Catholic faith has been passed from person to person, parent to child, etc. Each of us carries in our heart a special memory of how God first graced us with the knowledge of the faith and how Our Blessed Mother, Saint Philomena, Venerable Pauline Jaricot and other saints changed our lives and brought us closer to Christ.

In our work in the Universal Living Rosary Association, we see first hand how millions of souls are currently living without that knowledge of God and are living outside of His grace. We have been given a beautiful opportunity to carry out Christ’s work and pass on our faith and blessings to others who would otherwise never be introduced to Our Lord, the Savior of all mankind. Just as we pray for the souls in Purgatory who have no one to pray for them, we should also make it a part of our life’s mission to pass on our faith to as many souls as possible who have no one else to pass it on to them, who don’t know Our Lord and His promise of salvation.

This is the box we send out to the foreign Missions $77.95. It contains Rosaries, Scapulars, Miraculous Medals, Cord & Oil, Newsletters, Calendars, Catechism books, 2 TAN books, large color prints, lists and encouragements for our Promoters.
