REFLECTION: A picture paints a thousand words… THE ROSARY.

The reason for the season...

The reason for the season…

 

 

I must confess that I have never been a strong Marian follower.  Nevertheless, this morning, I had sensed our Father beckon me outdoors in spite of the snow.  As I hurried outdoors, I sensed Him urging me to pick up my red rosary and other trinkets.The snow had frozen over night and each step brought about a crisp crunch.  The sun now shone so brightly, and yet, the surrounding was cold and hard.  I believe our Father is urging us to use the Rosary to remind us of what Jesus has come to this world for…

Please reflect on each picture and let the Holy Spirit speak.  I must repeat that although I have not diligently prayed the Rosary,  I am now sensing our Father say that we must use the Rosary (while focusing of what Jesus has done on earth) to bring His will for the world.  Notice the picture of the Rosary with downtown Vancouver as the background.  I am sensing our Father’s call to pray for our city.

I believe all the captures were inspired.  I do not feel I have liberty to take credit for any as I believe they are gifts which our Father has sent to speak to our hearts.

May God bless us all,

    Dear Melissa,

    Thank you for the latest teaching about the Rosary. This is very timely. This year has been named the Year of celebration of 100 years of the Fatima apparitions It started the end of October 2016 and goes until Oct. 2017 . It was in 1917 that Mary first appeared to the 3 children in Fatima.From May 17th to October 17th

    There are so many beautiful messages given there. One of her messages at each appearance was for people to say the rosary daily for world peace.
    Pope John Paul says that this message is for our times too.

    Jesus and Mary also asked here for Marys Immaculate Heart to be honored with Jesus Sacred Heart.

    They say here that God grants all of His graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and we should ask Her and she then brings our prayers to Jesus.
    There has been an explanation by the seers that Jesus asked here for the 5 First Saturdays in reparation for the 5 main sins people commit against Mary.

    Also a request that Russia will be consecrated to Marys Immaculate Heart for conversion which has happened.

    I am rewriting a booklet written for children and adding the Fatima story
    This book has an Imprimatur from the Church and is used for First Communion children .

    If you would feel comfortable giving me your address I would be happy to share some of these with you.

    You are so obedient to the Holy Spirit and He can use you so often to help us go to Heaven! Thanks again

    In Jesus Name,

    Marlys
