DAY 22 - MARY, SEAT OF WISDOM, PRAY THAT WE RECEIVE THE FRUIT OF LONGANIMITY!

 

GOD’S WORD 


“And not only that, but we also find glory in tribulation, knowing that tribulation exercises patience, and patience leads to proving, yet truly proving leads to hope.” (Romans 4:3-4)


“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)


“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)


HEROES’ WORDS 


“This, in short, is the difference between us and others who know not God, that in misfortune they complain and murmur, while the adversity does not call us away from the truth of virtue and faith, but strengthens us by its suffering.” -St. Cyprian


MEDITATION 


Fruit of Longanimity: Extraordinary patience under provocation or trial. Also called long suffering. It is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. It includes forbearance, which adds to long suffering the implication of restraint in expressing one’s feelings or in demanding punishment or one’s due. Longanimity suggests toleration, moved by love and the desire for peace, of something painful that deserves to be rejected or opposed. (Fr. John Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary)

O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee, thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee. Show thyself my Mother!

My Fellow Prayer Warrior!

 

You are receiving this as we enter September, the month of devotion to the Seven Sorrows of Mary, and approach 1 month from the October 7th National Rosary Rally and Rosary Coast to Coast!


National Rosary Rally


The 8th annual National Rosary Rally will lead the country from the US Capitol in Washington DC on Saturday, October 7th Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary!. The National Eucharistic Rosary Procession accompanied by the National Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will proceed from St. Peter’s Church on Capitol Hill to the Supreme Court where for the first time the Men's March will join the procession and participate in the National Rosary Rally at Union Square on Capitol Hill! Renowned Catholic speakers will talk and lead us in prayer to conclude the 54 Day Rosary Novena for Our Nation.


Rosary Coast to Coast


2023 is the 6th year for Rosary Coast to Coast! Register your Rosary location on the map now!  Rosary rallies should take place: along coasts and borders; at state capitols; in parks; on beaches; along busy streets; as well as outside and inside Churches and Shrines. Join from wherever you can on October 7th to pray the Rosary simultaneously at 4 pm Eastern, 3 pm Central, 2 pm Mountain, 1 pm Pacific, etc! Rallies held on Sunday, October 8th should be registered on the map and considered in union with Rosary Coast to Coast as well. Resources are available to support both dates.


May Our Church and Our Country Find Hope as We Unite at the Foot of the Cross!


We, the Church Militant on earth, are engaged in a spiritual battle of historic proportions! We continue to live in peace-less times in conflict with God's laws and His natural law: denial of the humanity and human rights of the preborn; rebellion against God's creation of man and woman; attacks on marriage and family; intolerance towards and persecution of biblically-based religious belief and practice. We are living in a culture of death and lies. To what are we as Christians called in response? The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "All are called to Holiness...The way of perfection passes by the Way of the Cross. There is no Holiness without renunciation and spiritual battle."


I am thankful for all prayer warriors who are participating in these prayer campaigns and extend my most sincere gratitude to those who have so generously donated to help make them happen!


Novena for Our Nation, the National Rosary Rally and Rosary Coast to Coast are entirely supported by your donations!


As we continue to get the word out on Rosary Coast to Coast and prepare for the National Rosary Rally, I respectfully request if you would pray and reflect on a donation to help us finance these critically important prayer campaigns.


The National Eucharistic Procession has become potentially the most visible aspect of the National Rosary Rally on Capitol Hill! In the past, we have relied on the generosity of Msgr. Charles Pope as well as St. Peter's Church to provide all that is needed for which we are extremely grateful!


Starting this year, we plan to self-supply all of the Eucharistic Procession items: Monstrance, Canopy, Procession Crucifix, Procession Torches, Censor, Cassocks, and Surplices.  The one-time total cost is expected to be around $6,000! Please help us purchase all of these items to process the Blessed Sacrament, the True Presence of Jesus, at our nation's capitol!

TERESA OF CALCUTTA 

Nehemiah, Chapter 5, Verse 9

I continued: “What you are doing is not good. Should you not conduct yourselves out of FEAR of our God rather than fear of the reproach of our Gentile enemies? 

What is good? Doing God’s justice is the only good. What is the attitude we should have at heart? 

The Old Testament established the seven laws of Noah, or the Noahide Laws which were given by God as binding on all of humanity.  Any person who adheres to these is regarded as righteous (even Gentile enemies) and is assured a place in the world to come. 


These laws are:

 

1.      Do Not Deny God

2.      Do Not Blaspheme God

3.      Do Not Murder

4.      Do Not Engage in Incestuous, Adulterous or Homosexual Relationships.

5.      Do Not Steal

6.      Do Not Eat of a Live Animal

7.      Establish Functioning Courts of Law

 

Teresa of Calcutta[1]


Mother Teresa of Calcutta, known as the "saint of the gutters", feast day will be September 5 for the church calendar, during her life, was declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Francis (September 4, 2016) just 19 years after her death. A Nobel peace laureate, her legacy complements Pope Francis's vision of a humble church that strives to serve the poor. Francis said she was a "dispenser of divine mercy" and held world powers to account "for the crimes of poverty they created. For Mother Teresa, mercy was the salt which gave flavor to her work, it was the light which shone in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering. She showed we can't all do everything, but little gestures made with so much love are what's important."

Foundation of Love[2] 

John McCain in his book “Character is Destiny” stated Mother Teresa shows us how mercy is the only way to find contentment by being selfless. Great leadership is based on a foundation of love. McCain states, “She chose to live amid squalor and sickness and desperation, endured hardship and endless toil, and might have been the happiest person on earth.” Mother did not flee from the Lord; nor did she fear anyone. When the Lord called her; she knew the call was authentic because it filled her with joy.

The first counsel of Mother Teresa is to put your hand in His and walk all the way with Him. When you hear the call to follow. To Mother Teresa it was never more complicated than that. To her care of the dying was the purest expression of love. Who around you are dying-physically, emotionally, or spiritually?

 

Love might not heal every wound of disease, but it heals the heart.  McCain notes that Mother Teresa showed that rather than chasing ambition the greatest contentment comes from having a foundation of love. “She loved and was loved, and her happiness was complete.”

 

International Day of Charity[3]

 

The International Day of Charity seeks to promote and recognize charity and its role in easing humanitarian crises and suffering in the world. The day also serves to recognize the work of charitable organizations and individuals around the globe whose philanthropic actions have contributed to the creation of more inclusive and resilient societies. The International Day of Charity was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in an effort to mobilize the world to help others. The day is celebrated every year on September 5th, the anniversary of the death of Mother Theresa of Calcutta, one of the most philanthropic individuals of our time. Mother Theresa passed away in 1997 at the age of 87 after a lifetime of charitable work with the sick and dying in India.

Catechism of the Catholic Church

PART TWO: THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

SECTION ONE-THE SACRAMENTAL ECONOMY

CHAPTER ONE THE PASCHAL MYSTERY IN THE AGE OF THE CHURCH

Article 2-THE PASCHAL MYSTERY IN THE CHURCH'S SACRAMENTS

V. The Sacraments of Eternal Life

1130 The Church celebrates the mystery of her Lord "until he comes," when God will be "everything to everyone." Since the apostolic age the liturgy has been drawn toward its goal by the Spirit's groaning in the Church: Marana tha! The liturgy thus shares in Jesus' desire: "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you . . . until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God." In the sacraments of Christ the Church already receives the guarantee of her inheritance and even now shares in everlasting life, while "awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus." The "Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come . . . Come, Lord Jesus!"'

St. Thomas sums up the various aspects of sacramental signs: "Therefore a sacrament is a sign that commemorates what precedes it - Christ's Passion; demonstrates what is accomplished in us through Christ's Passion - grace; and prefigures what that Passion pledges to us - future glory."
