Weekly News Flash from the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena, Thursday, October 7, 2015, 2015

Dear Mother Patti,

Today, St. Philomena took me to a remote Parish, the St. Michael’s Parish, Nkol Meting, in the outskirts of Yaounde.

I left our center at 7:30 am, but the Mass which was supposed to begin at 10 am, finally started at about 12 noon.

Soon after Mass, the Parishioners lined up and a good number of them were enrolled. Many remarked, “This method of praying the Rosary is much easier to encourage one to love the Rosary.” As you can see, the people have no access to Rosary leaflets, Rosaries and brochures. They embraced the idea of the Daily Decade. Some prominent parishioners enrolled their children, even those who were not at Mass. I was assisted by another promoter from a nearby Parish, Nkongoa.

We encouraged our promoter in that Parish to continue the enrollment on every Sunday as we are about entering the Month of October, the Month of the Holy Rosary. I left the jungle Parish at about 3:45 pm.

Recently, I was able to travel to our French speaking countries: Côte d’Ivoire, Cotonou – Benin and Togo: The trip was very useful and bore much spiritual fruit. I want to thank you and all our benefactors for making this trip possible. Your help in directing boxes to the three areas that would arrive at the time of my visit to each country were very helpful. We met with priests, Sisters and lay apostles and gave them full introduction, Sacramentals and a plan for continuity of the devotion.

In Benin and Togo, Voodoo worship is wide spread. I am back at work now in Cameroon and will send you photos of our mission. Ave Maria!

My Immaculate Heart will be Your Refuge and the Way that Will Lead You to God!Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecution of the Church: evolutionist materialism, atheism, class struggle, negation of the right to own property, rejection of the sacredness of marriage, and robbing parents of the right to educate their children. Today, negation of the moral law abounds in over three fourths of the world’s population. Crushed by earthly cares, robbed of truth and crippled by physical sufferings, where can we turn? There is not one among the Angels and Saints in Heaven whose heart is capable of compassionating our sufferings like the Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary! All you who are afflicted and suffering go to Our Lady and tell her of your distress. Weep, if you will, and She will console you. Her Soul was transfixed with a sword; She understands fully well your grief. From the Heart of Mary goes forth the saving virtue which cures all our ills. By the intercession of Our Queen, the lame walk, the blind see, the deaf hear, the paralyzed recover the use of their limbs, and the dying return to life. Our Lady draws as She wills from the Heart of the Divine Physician, the balm that cures our bodies and souls. If Mary has healed bodies, how much more She delights in helping the spiritually blind regain their vision, paralyzed souls to once again walk in strength, and lukewarm Christians to regain their early fervor and live their faith courageously. Let us bring all those in their last agony, those on cots and in wheelchairs, the sick, the weak, and the dying to the Queen of Heaven. She will place them at the foot of the Tabernacle of Love, wherein dwells the Divine Physician. We allow ourselves to be operated on by a mere mortal, but we protest when God sets to work on us. The chalice of suffering He offers us may be a bitter one, but has He not reddened it by His own Blood? We must not be grief-stricken that God is sharing with us the greatest mark of His favor: The Cross!!!

During the Month of October, as we celebrate the great victories of Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Lourdes over Satan, let us bring our sick, our suffering and our dying to the foot of the Holy Altar to be bathed in the Most Precious Blood of Jesus through a Holy Mass Bouquet spanning the 31 days of October. Please list the names of your Loved Ones who are suffering physically, spiritually or emotionally, so they may take part in this Holy Mass Bouquet. A lovely Mass card will be sent out to you for each one you enroll.

SUGGESTED STIPEND DONATION: $5.00 each for Enrollment in the OCTOBER Bouquet of 31 days of Masses for your Sick and your Suffering: PRINT VERY CLEARLY EACH NAME!

In his Encyclical on the Holy Ghost, Pope Leo XIII strongly urged the faithful to have a special devotion to this Divine Spirit and exhorted all Bishops and priests to preach this sanctifying devotion with a new and burning zeal. His Holiness pointed out that the Holy Ghost is constantly at work in the Church, which undertakes nothing of importance without invoking His aid in the solemn hymn, Veni Creator.

The words of the Holy Father were most timely, for many of the faithful seem to have forgotten the important role which the Holy Spirit plays in the life of the Church and of the individual. He is the guide and the sanctifier of both. Indeed, He is the very soul of the Church.

Shortly before His Ascension into Heaven, Jesus commended this devotion to the Apostles and promised to them the coming of the Holy Ghost. “But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost,” He said, “whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you.” (Jn.14:26) (Pause and reflect)

In order to understand the powerful influence exercised upon the Apostles, consider how timid they were when they assembled in the cenacle after the crucifixion of their Divine Master and Leader, Jesus Christ. They undertook no missionary work: they remained in prayer, awaiting the coming of the Holy Spirit who would transform them into intrepid Apostles, proclaiming the Gospel of Christ in all lands.

“And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished,” relates the Acts, “they were all together in one place and, suddenly, there came a sound from Heaven, as of a mighty wind coming and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And, there appeared to them parted tongues, as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with diverse tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.” (2:1-4)

Not only did the Apostles receive the gift of tongues but they received the courage, strength and fortitude to use that gift and, thus, to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to friend and foe. They became valiant and fearless men: instead of fleeing danger, they esteemed it a privilege to face perils of all kinds and even to die for the Faith of Christ. (Pause and reflect)

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.
