April Prayer Intention (2016)

April Prayer Intention (2016)

We pray for peace throughout the world:

Lord, God of peace, who has created man, the object of your kindness, to be close to you in glory, we bless you and we thank you because you have sent us your beloved son, Jesus, the source of all peace, the bond of true brotherhood. 

We thank you for the desire, the efforts, the realisations which your spirit of peace has roused in our day: to replace hatred with love, diffidence with understanding, unconcern with care. Open yet more our hearts to the needs of all our brothers and sisters, so that we may be better able to build a true peace. 

Remember, Father of mercy, all who are in pain, who suffer and die in the cause of a more brotherly world. For the men of every race, of every tongue - may your kingdom come: your kingdom of justice, of peace, of love; and may the earth be filled with your glory.

The perfect sacrifice

Notes of meeting on 22 March 2016

Picture of Jesus on the Cross, His blood streams down upon the world like rivers of mercy.
His pain and humiliation willingly accepted to take away men's sins. He is the perfect lamb with no blemish, the perfect sacrifice to save man from their faults.
Mary Our Mother says:
"Look upon Him, the Saviour of the World, brought low willingly to appease the Father's wrath for the sins of mankind. Turn to Him for He is Love personified. Turn not your backs on such love, stay with Him, for your love and loyalty will help sustain and comfort Him in His great outpouring of Grace and Mercy upon humanity.
I bless you with my Son Jesus' blessing.
Your beloved Mother."

We thank you Lord for helping us carry our crosses, our individual burdens and collective struggles. As you died on the cross, a symbol of justice, help us to see justice issues acting as a shield against the wellspring of the Father’s limitless mercy.  May we always be a conduit of mercy, serving in gratitude, fostering your peace and infusing your hope in our world with enthusiasm and conviction.  We acknowledge our humanity, living as your Body, sustaining by our loving Father who gives us our daily bread, mercifully for our daily needs, so we are not lead into the temptation of indifference and we can say…Our Father, who art in heaven…

Luke 24 v 1 - 9
On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared.
2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb,
3 but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side.
5 Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, 'Why look among the dead for someone who is alive?
6 He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee:
7 that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.'
8 And they remembered his words.
9 And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others.

Night of Intercession for Celebrate NE 2016 Conference

Notes from Night of Intercession on 15 March 2016 for Celebrate NE 2016 Conference

Picture of Our Mother kneeling before her Son on the Cross, she is in abject sorrow and distress at witnessing his sufferings for mankind. Our Mother beckons us to join her praying, our presence seems to comfort her and Jesus.
Then we see her Immaculate Heart leave her body and the Sacred Heart of Jesus leave his, they entwine caring and comforting one another in complete union, soaring above the pain , humiliation and sorrow bound only in the Holy Spirit and the Father's love. Then quietly their hearts return.
Mary says:
"My children watch with me and comfort my Son who makes much reparation for the sins of the world. Follow him truly with your hearts, your minds, your very being. These acts of love entwined with ours will be very beneficial for your own and your families souls and also for mankind.
Love conquers all even the greatest of sins when reparation is fully entered into.
I bless you with my Son Jesus' blessing."

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Proclaim the good news.

Picture of angels taking our praise and prayer to heaven.

Note: There will be additional words to follow once these have been received.

New life in Jesus

Notes of meeting on 8 March 2016

Picture of Our Lady dressed in black on her knees before the crucified Christ.
Her tears fell down her sorrowful face and an angel appeared and collected them, the angel flew upwards and offered them to the Father.
Our Lady says:
"I your supplicant daughter, plead by the Precious Blood shed by my Son Jesus and my many tears, that those destined to be lost would become saved.
Oh Heavenly Father you who are Utmost Good let not Rachel mourn and cry in vain for her children. Let them not be lost to you Dear Father.
By my Son Jesus' sacrifice and the prayers of my army we supplicate thee on their behalf form thy goodness Father free them and bring them to new life in Jesus.
I thank you, we thank you."

Thank you Mary that you join your sufferings to those of your Son. You intercede with Him for the lost that they may be saved and reconciled with the Father.

Ephesians 5 v 6 - 15
6 Do not let anyone deceive you with empty arguments: it is such behaviour that draws down God's retribution on those who rebel against him.
7 Make sure that you do not throw in your lot with them.
8 You were darkness once, but now you are light in the Lord; behave as children of light,
9 for the effects of the light are seen in complete goodness and uprightness and truth.
10 Try to discover what the Lord wants of you,
11 take no part in the futile works of darkness but, on the contrary, show them up for what they are.
12 The things which are done in secret are shameful even to speak of;
13 but anything shown up by the light will be illuminated
14 and anything illuminated is itself a light. That is why it is said: Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.
15 So be very careful about the sort of lives you lead, like intelligent and not like senseless people.

My heart breaks for love of you

Notes of meeting on 1 March 2016

Picture of Jesus crowned with thorns. Blood is pouring from the wounds made by the crown and his scourging. You can hardly see his face for the blood covering it.
As we pray and feel such sorrow for him the room is filling up with his blood. How can so much blood be shed?
Jesus says:
"My blood pours forth to mitigate the grave errors and sins of my people, each soul is saved and sanctified by my blood. I Jesus willingly suffer to save my precious children's souls, none are to be kept from my love.
Pray and do sacrifice, align yourselves to my suffering for the salvation of your brothers and sisters souls, so that Satan may not attain them.
Stay with me, be with me, watch with me, do not turn away from your saviour for I cannot bear to loose even one of these precious souls.
My heart breaks for love of you."

John 19 v 33-37

33 When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs
34 one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water.
35 This is the evidence of one who saw it -- true evidence, and he knows that what he says is true -- and he gives it so that you may believe as well.
36 Because all this happened to fulfil the words of scripture: Not one bone of his will be broken;
37 and again, in another place scripture says: They will look to the one whom they have pierced.

2 Corinthians 5 v 14-17

14 For the love of Christ overwhelms us when we consider that if one man died for all, then all have died;
15 his purpose in dying for all humanity was that those who live should live not any more for themselves, but for him who died and was raised to life.
16 From now onwards, then, we will not consider anyone by human standards: even if we were once familiar with Christ according to human standards, we do not know him in that way any longer.
17 So for anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation: the old order is gone and a new being is there to see.

Oh the Blood of Jesus, Oh the Blood of Jesus, Oh the Blood of Jesus,
It washes white as snow.
