                  Mother, who gave Me
                  human existence; Her I

“I urge you to live in union of
life with the Angels of the Lord.
They light up your path, take
you by the hand and lead you
along the path of light, of love

you in your human weakness.
They defend you against the
attacks of Satan, against his
numerous obstacles and snares.

2B. Communion of Angels
The great battle which is now being
waged is above all at the level of the
spirits, between heaven and earth,
between the Angels and the
demons.
You are involved in this great
struggle, which is immensely above
and beyond you. So you must be
particularly close to those who are
close to you in the great encounter,
who have great power, who assist
you in fighting and who lead you to
certain victory.
You must pray much to the Angels.
This is the hour of the Angelic
powers.” (Gobbi)
   "To the holy angels, who have obeyed thy holy and
    just will, I assign as habitation the highest heavens
    as their proper and eternal abode, and with it the
    joys of eternal vision and fruition of our Divinity. I
    desire that they enjoy its everlasting possession
    together with our company and friendship. I
    decree, that they recognize my Mother as their
    legitimate Queen and Lady, that they serve Her,
    accompany and attend upon Her, bear Her up in
    their hands in all places and times, obeying Her in
    all that She wishes to ordain and command .”

C. The Communion of Saints
“The communion of life with the Saints of paradise is the remedy
which I am giving you. How great is their heavenly power.”
                                               “Live the stupendous
                                               reality of the
                                               communion of saints,
                                               which unites you,
                                               helps you and pledges
                                               you all to fight for the
                                               full triumph of Christ.

                                               Thus you are already
                                               contributing to the
                                               forming of the New

                                               city.” (Gobbi)
   “In the splendor of the saints, there is formed one single
    and unique family of the children of God.
   In the splendor of the saints, you too are living these days
    of painful purification and of great tribulation. They are
    close to you, they are helping you, they are protecting you
    by their powerful intercession and are leading you to the
    complete fulfillment of my motherly plan.
   In the spendor of the saints, you are consoled in your
    suffering. You must live out the present moments and bear
    the weight of the great trial.
   In the splendor of the saints continue this, your so
    wearisome and extraordinary journey, my littlest child,
    called to carry the light of Christ to so many souls
    darkened by sin, and the love and the comfort of the
    Mother to many sick and wounded hearts. Upon each step
    which you take, your heavenly Mother will cause hope,
    confidence and joy to blossom forth.” (Gobbi)
   "From the multitudes of men, in the fullness of my good will, I call,
    select and separate all the just and the predestined, who through my
    grace save themselves by imitating Me, doing my will and obeying
    my holy law. These, next to my most pure Mother, I appoint as the
    inheritors of all my mysteries, my blessings, my sacramental
    treasures, of my humility, meekness of heart; of the virtues of faith,
    hope, and charity of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance; of
    my divine gifts and favors; of my Cross, labors, contempt, poverty
    and nakedness.
   I assign to them the trials I have chosen for Myself in this life, as a
    pledge of my friendship, in order that they may undergo them with
    joy. I offer them my protection and defense, my holy inspirations,
    my favors and powerful assistance, my blessings and my
    justification, according to each one's disposition and degree of love.
    I promise to be to them a Father, a Brother and a Friend, and they
    shall be my chosen and beloved children, and as such I appoint
    them as the inheritors of all my merits and treasures without
    limitation. I desire that all who dispose themselves, shall partake of
    the goods of my holy Church and of the Sacraments; that, if they
    should lose my friendship, they shall be able to restore themselves
    and recover my graces and blessings through my cleansing blood.”
    ( Mystical City of God. Mary of Agreda. )
   “For all of them shall be open the intercession of
    my Mother and of the saints, and She shall
    recognize them as her children, shielding them and
    holding them as her own. My angels shall defend
    them, guide them, protect them and bear them up
    in their hands lest they stumble, and if they fall,
    they shall help them to rise" (Ps. 90, 11, l2).------
    Mystical City of God.
   “What is the Church if not the assembly of
    all the saints?” The Communion of saints is
    the Church.
   Since all the faithful form one body, the
    good of each is communicated to the
    others. We must therefore believe that there
    exists a communion of goods in the Church.
    As this Church is governed by one and the
    same Spirit, all the goods she has received
    necessarily become a common fund.”
   The “communion of saints” therefore has
    two closely linked meanings: communion
    “in holy things” and “among holy persons.”

                                   glory but also with power. He has
                                   given her power as Mother of
                                   God, to distribute the treasures of

                                   Christ also promised a crown to
                                   all who loves Him.

5A. Pray for us                              “My children, I come

   All the offices and titles of honor, which the most blessed
    Mary held in the Church, that of Queen, Mistress,
    Mother, Governess and Teacher, and all the rest, were
    given to her by the Omnipotent not as empty and
    fruitless names, but were accompanied by the
    superabundant plenitude of grace which is proper and
    which the Almighty can communicate to each. This
    plenitude consisted in this, that as Queen She knew all
    that concerned her reign and its extent; as Mistress She
    knew the measure of her power; as Mother She knew all
    the children and dependents of her household, without
    excepting anyone through all the ages of the Church
    until the end; as Governess She knew all that were
    subject to Her; and as Teacher, She possessed the
    wisdom and science through which the holy Church, by
    her intercession, was to be instructed and guided, while
    enjoying the presence and the influence of the Holy
    Ghost until the end of the world.
Hence our great Queen had a clear knowledge not only of
all the saints that preceded or followed Her in the Church,
of their lives, their works, their deaths, and rewards in
heaven; but also of all the rites, ceremonies, decisions, and
festivities of the Church in course of the ages, and of all the
reasons, motives, necessities and opportunities, in and for
which they were established with the assistance of the Holy
Ghost. For He gives us our spiritual nourishment in proper
time for the glory of the Lord and the increase of the holy
Church. As I have spoken of this matter in the course of
this history, especially in the second part, I need not repeat
it here. From her full knowledge and her corresponding
holiness, there arose within the heavenly Instructress a
certain thankful eagerness, to introduce into the Church
militant the worship, veneration and festivities observed by
the holy angels in the triumphant Jerusalem, and thus
imitate, as far as was possible, what She had so often seen
    She commenced to practice by Herself many of the
    ceremonies, rites and exercises, which were afterwards
    introduced in the Church; and these She also inculcated
    and impressed upon the Apostles, in order that they
    might introduce them as far as the circumstances then
    allowed. She not only invented the exercises of the
    Passion, of which I have spoken above, but many other
    customs and ceremonies which were later on received in
    the churches, in the congregations and religions. For
    whatever She knew as pertaining to the worship of the
    Lord or the practice of virtue, She performed, and in her
    wisdom She was ignorant of nothing that ought to be
    known. Among these exercises and rites was the
    celebration of the feasts of the Lord and of Herself, in
    order to renew the memory of the benefits for which She
    stood indebted, as well the benefits relating in general to
    the human race.
   On the eighth day of December of each year She
    celebrated her Immaculate Conception with a jubilee
    and gratitude beyond all human words; for this privilege
    was for the great Queen of the highest importance and
    value. She imagined Herself altogether incapable of ever
    acknowledging it with sufficient gratitude. She
    commenced her exercises on the evening before and
    spent the whole night in admirable devotions, shedding
    tears of joy, humiliating Herself, prostrating Herself and
    singing the praises of the Lord. She deeply reflected, that
    She was formed of the same earth and descended from
    Adam according to the common order of nature; that She
    was preserved and exempted from the weight of the same
    guilt and conceived with such a plenitude of graces and
    gifts only because She was set apart and snatched from
    the rest by the Almighty. She invited her own angels to
    help Her to return proper thanks, and in union with them
    She alternated new songs of praise.
   After She had spent the whole night in these exercises, Christ
    descended from heaven and the angels raised Her to his royal
    throne in heaven, where the celebration of the feast was continued
    with new glory and accidental joy of the courtiers of the heavenly
    Jerusalem. There the blessed Mother prostrated Herself and
    adored the most holy Trinity, again giving thanks for the benefit of
    her immunity from sin and her Immaculate Conception. Then She
    again took her place at the right hand of Christ her Son and the
    Lord himself as it were acknowledged the goodness of the eternal
    Father in having given Him a Mother so worthy and so full of
    grace, exempt from the common guilt of Adam. Anew the three
    divine Persons confirmed upon Her this privilege, as it were
    ratifying and approving it and pleasing Themselves in thus having
    distinguished Her among all the creatures. In order to give
    repeated testimony to this truth, a voice proceeded from the throne
    in the name of the Father, saying: "Beautiful are thy footsteps, O
    prince's Daughter, conceived without sin." Another in the name of
    the Son, said: "Altogether pure and without contact of guilt is my
    Mother, who gave Me human form to redeem men." And in the
    name of the Holy Spirit: "All fair art thou, my Spouse, all fair art
    thou and without stain of the universal guilt."
   In between these voices were heard the choirs of
    all the angels and saints, singing in sweetest
    harmony: "Most holy Mary, conceived without
    original sin. To all these honors the most prudent
    Mother answered by thanksgiving, worship and
    praise of the Most High, rendered with such
    profound humility that it passed all angelic
    understanding. In order to conclude the
    solemnity She was raised to the intuitive and
    beatific vision of the most holy Trinity; and after
    enjoying this glory for some hours, She was
    brought back by the angels to the Cenacle. This
    was the manner in which her Immaculate
    Conception was solemnized after the Ascension
    of her divine Son. (Mary of Agreda)

                                                                  (St. John Bosco)

Enguerrand Quarton, The Coronation of the Virgin. Musee Municipal, Villeneuve Avignon.
   THE CORONATION OF THE MOTHER OF GOD.
   We call that the throne of the Divinity, from which God manifests
    Himself to the saints as the principal cause of their glory and as
    the infinite, eternal God, independent of all things and on whose
    will all creatures depend, from which He manifests Himself as the
    Lord, as the King, as the Judge and Master of all that is in
    existence. This dignity Christ the Redeemer possesses, in as far as
    He is God, essentially, and as far as He is man, through the
    hypostatic union, by which He communicates his Godhead to the
    humanity. Hence in heaven He is the King, the Lord and supreme
    Judge; and the saints, though their glory exceeds all human
    calculation, are as servants and inferiors of this inaccessible
    Majesty. In this the most holy Mary participates in a degree next
    inferior and in a manner otherwise ineffable and proportionate to a
    mere creature so closely related to the Godman; and therefore She
    assists forever at the right hand of her Son as Queen (Ps. 44, 10),
    Lady and Mistress of all creation, her dominion extending as far as
    that of her divine Son, although in a different manner.
   After placing the most blessed Mary on this exalted and
    supereminent throne, the Lord declared to the courtiers
    of heaven all the privileges She should enjoy in virtue of
    this participation in his majesty. The Person of the
    eternal Father, as the first principle of all things,
    speaking to the angels and saints, said to them: "Our
    Daughter Mary was chosen according to our pleasure
    from amongst all creatures, the first one to delight Us,
    and who never fell from the title and position of a
    Daughter, such as We had given Her in our divine mind;
    She has a claim on our dominion, which We shall
    recognize by crowning Her as the legitimate and peerless
    Lady and Sovereign." The incarnate Word said: "To my
    true and natural Mother belong all the creatures which
    were created and redeemed by Me; and of all things over
    which I am King, She too shall be the legitimate and
    supreme Queen." The Holy Ghost said: "Since She is
    called my beloved and chosen Spouse, She deserves to be
    crowned as Queen for all eternity."
   Having thus spoken the three divine Persons placed upon the head
    of the most blessed Mary a crown of such new splendor and value,
    that the like has been seen neither before nor after by any mere
    creature. At the same time a voice sounded from the throne saying:
    "My Beloved, chosen among the creatures, our kingdom is Thine;
    Thou shalt be the Lady and the Sovereign of the seraphim, of all
    the ministering spirits, the angels and of the entire universe of
    creatures. Attend, proceed and govern prosperously over them, for
    in our supreme consistory We give Thee power, majesty and
    sovereignty. Being filled with grace beyond all the rest, Thou hast
    humiliated Thyself in thy own estimation to the lowest place;
    receive now the supreme dignity deserved by Thee and, as a
    participation in our Divinity, the dominion over all the creatures of
    our Omnipotence. From thy royal throne to the centre of the earth
    Thou shalt reign; and by the power We now give Thee Thou shalt
    subject hell with all its demons and inhabitants. Let all of them
    fear Thee as the supreme Empress and Mistress of those caverns
    and dwelling-places of our enemies. In thy hands and at thy
    pleasure We place the influences and forces of the heavens, the
    moisture of the clouds, the growths of the earth; and of all of them
    do Thou distribute according to thy will, and our own will shall be
    at thy disposal for the execution of thy wishes.
   Thou shalt be the Empress and Mistress of the militant Church, its
    Protectress, its Advocate, its Mother and Teacher. Thou shalt be
    the special Patroness of the Catholic countries; and whenever they,
    or the faithful, or any of the children of Adam call upon Thee from
    their heart, serve or oblige Thee, Thou shalt relieve and help them
    in their labors and necessities. Thou shalt be the Friend, the
    Defender and the Chieftainess of all the just and of our friends; all
    of them Thou shalt comfort, console and fill with blessings
    according to their devotion to Thee.
   In view of all this We make Thee the Depositary of our riches, the
    Treasurer of our goods; we place into thy hands the helps and
    blessings of our grace for distribution; nothing do We wish to be
    given to the world, which does not pass through thy hands; and
    nothing do We deny, which Thou wishest to concede to men.
    Grace shall be diffused in thy lips for obtaining all that Thou
    wishest and ordainest in heaven and on earth, and everywhere
    shall angels and men obey Thee; because whatever is ours shall be
    thine, just as Thou hast always been ours; and Thou shalt reign
    with Us forever."
   In the execution of this decree and privilege conceded to the
    Mistress of the world, the Almighty commanded all the courtiers of
    heaven, angels and men, to show Her obedience and recognize
    Her as their Queen and Lady. There was another mystery
    concealed in this wonder, namely, it was a recompense for the
    worship and veneration, which, as is clear from this history, the
    most blessed Mary, notwithstanding that She was the Mother of
    God, full of grace and holiness above the angels and saints, had
    bestowed upon the saints during her mortal pilgrimage. Although
    during the time when they were comprehensors and She yet a
    pilgrim, it was for her greater merit, that She should humble
    Herself beneath them all according to the ordainment of the Lord;
    yet now, when She was in possession of the kingdom, it was just,
    that She should be venerated, worshipped and extolled by them as
    her inferiors and vassals. This they also did in that most blessed
    state, in which all things are reduced to their proper proportion
    and order. Both the angelic spirits and the blessed souls, while
    rendering their adoration to the Lord with fear and worshipful
    reverence, rendered a like homage in its proportion to His most
    blessed Mother; and the saints who were there in their bodies
    prostrated themselves and gave bodily signs of their worship.
   WORDS OF THE QUEEN. (The Virgin Mary speaks to
    Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)
   My daughter, if anything could lessen the enjoyment of
    the highest felicity and glory which I possess, and if, in it,
    I could be capable of any sorrow, without a doubt I would
    be grieved to see the holy Church and the rest of the world
    in its present state of labor, notwithstanding that men
    know me to be their Mother, Advocate and Protectress in
    heaven, ready to guide and assist them to eternal life. In
    this state of affairs, when the Almighty has granted me so
    many privileges as his Mother and when there are so
    many sources of help placed in my hands solely for the
    benefit of mortals and belonging to me as the Mother of
    clemency, it is a great cause of sorrow to me to see mortals
    force me to remain idle, and that, for want of calling upon
    me, so many souls should be lost. But if I cannot
    experience grief now, I may justly complain of men, that
    they load themselves with eternal damnation and refuse
    me the glory of saving their souls.”
   “How much my intercession and the power I have in
    heaven are worth has never been hidden in the Church,
    for I have demonstrated my ability to save all by so many
    thousands of miracles, prodigies and favors operated in
    behalf of those devoted to me. With those who have called
    upon me in their needs I have always shown myself
    liberal, and the Lord has shown himself liberal to them on
    my account. The Most High still wishes to give liberally of
    his infinite treasures and resolves to favor those who know
    how to gain my intercession before God. This is the
    secure way and the powerful means of
    advancing the Church, of improving the
    Catholic reigns, of spreading the faith, of
    furthering the welfare of families and of
    states, of bringing the souls to grace and to
    the friendship of God.”
    *****
Inhis encyclical Redemptoris Mater,
Pope John Paul II said:
  Thus there is a mediation: Mary places
  herself between her Son and mankind in
  the reality of their wants, needs and
  sufferings. She puts herself "in the middle",
  that is to say she acts as a mediatrix not as
  an outsider, but in her position as mother.
  She knows that as such she can point out
  to her Son the needs of mankind, and in
  fact, she "has the right" to do so. Her
  mediation is thus in the nature of
  intercession: Mary "intercedes" for
  mankind.[80]
   “She knows everything that happens in our
    lives and supports us with maternal love in
    our trials. Taken up to heavenly glory, Mary
    dedicates herself totally to the work of
    salvation. She wants every living person to
    know the happiness granted to her. She is a
    queen who give all that she possess ,
    participating above all in the life and love of
    Christ.”
   As She was the Coadjutrix of salvation She was
    also to be the testamentary Executrix. For the Son
    placed all things in her hands, just as the Father
    had assigned the whole creation to Him. She was
    to execute his will and she was to distribute all the
    treasures acquired and due to her Son as God on
    account of his infinite merits. This understanding
    has been given me as part of this history for the
    exaltation of our Queen and in order that sinners
    might approach Her as Custodian of all the
    treasures gained by her Son our Redeemer in the
    sight of his eternal Father. All help and assistance
    is in the hands of most holy Mary and She is to
    distribute it according to her most sweet kindness
    and liberality. ---Mystical City of God. Mary of Agreda.
   Before speaking any of the seven last words, Jesus prayed to the
    Father and said: “First shall be mentioned my most pure Mother,
    who gave Me human existence; Her I constitute my sole and
    universal Heiress of all the gifts of nature, of grace and of glory that
    are mine. She shall be Mistress and Possessor of them all. The gifts
    of grace, of which as a mere creature She is capable, She shall
    actually receive now, while those of glory I promise to confer upon
    Her in their time. I desire that She shall be Mistress of angels and
    men, claim over them full possession and dominion and command
    the service and obedience of all. The demons shall fear Her and be
    subject to Her. All the irrational creatures, the heavens, the stars,
    the planets, the elements with all the living beings, the birds, the
    fishes and the animals contained in them, shall likewise be subject
    to Her and acknowledge Her as Mistress, exalting and glorifying
    Her with Me. I wish also that She be the Treasurer and Dispenser of
    all the goods in heaven and on earth. Whatever She ordains and
    disposes in my Church for my children, the sons of men, shall be
    confirmed by the three divine Persons; and whatever She shall ask
    for mortals now, afterwards and forever, We shall concede
    according to her will and wishes.“ Mystical city of God.

Glorious Mysteries 5: Coronation
“The mestiza face of the
Virgin of Guadalupe was
a symbol of inculturation
of the Gospel.
Through her powerful
intercession, the Gospel
will penetrate the hearts of
men and women of America
and permeate their cultures,
transforming them from
within.”
“Of the people of America,
through Mary they came to
encounter the Lord.”
“To Jesus, through Mary”
------Pope John Paul II
Pope John Paul II: (Angelus Address. Feb. 1996)
“I ask her to “visit” each and every
diocese, parish, ecclesial community
and family in America. Christians, like
John, welcomes the Mother of Christ
Into his home.”
May she cross this continent,
bringing it “life, hope, and sweetness.”
May she enliven and protect the work
of the new evangelization.
“I ask You today and always to present
them to “Jesus, the fruit of thy womb.”
“Look upon them continually with
mercy and through your intercession
with the divine redeemer, heal them
of their sufferings, deliver them from
all evil, and fill them with your love.”
“Look at the heart of these children of mine:
                       (Angelus Address. Feb. 1996)
they are so poor, so simple and good. They
are suffering so much and in such need, and
therefore so dear to me.
Look at the heart of this whole people and
there you will find stamped the seal of love of
your heavenly Mother.
Look at the heart of your heavenly Mother
and you will find gathered there, in ever
increasing numbers, children of every
continent. The whole world is now held in my
merciful hands, for the coming triumph of my
Immaculate Heart.”
“I am the Mother of all. Especially of those
who are farthest away, who are still walking
in darkness. In particular, I am the Mother of
those who are poorest, simplest, most
abandoned and most vulnerable.”
“I love you with a motherly and
merciful love; I am always near you
as a tender and attentive Mother;
I am leading you along the way of
peace, holiness, purity and love.
I consider this land as a precious
portion of my estate. I have wanted
it to be totally consecrated to my
Immaculate Heart.
I will save Latin America. I am the
Mother of the Second Evangelization
I am guiding you as a star along the
bright way of fidelity to Christ and
to his Gospel. You must announce
to all in its integrity. Preach with the
same clarity with which my Son
Jesus announced it to you. My task
is that of forming you into apostles
“I am calling you all to be apostles of the Second
Evangelization. I am entrusting to each one of you
my motherly mandate: Go and Evangelize.
Go to every part of this great nation of yours.
Go into every place, even the most distant and
out-of –the- way.
Go to all my children, especially to the poor, the
sinners, those furthest away, to those who are
victims of evil, of vice, of egoism, of hatred, of
impurity.
Evangelize this poor humanity which has again
become pagan after nearly two thousand years. Let
the idols be destroyed, the idols it has built with its
own hands: pleasure, money, pride, impurity,
atheism, egoism, hatred and violence.
Evangelize the suffering and divided Church. Let
the Gospel of Jesus, preached and lived to the letter,
become the only light.
Evangelize all men. Preach the need for prayer and
penance, for the courageous practice of all the
virtues, of adoration of the Eucharist. Spread
everywhere the cenacles of prayer.”
“I want to look at you with these eyes of mine. You
are called to be the pupils of my eyes; you are
destined to carry my light to the ends of the earth.
The light which I give you is that of my Son Jesus.
Bring everywhere the light of his word. Bring the
light of his life. Bring the light of his presence
among you, so that the heavenly dew of Divine
Mercy may descend in every part of the earth.
I want to love you with this heart of mine. You are
called to be the greatest love of my Immaculate
Heart; you are destined to bring my love to every
part of the world. The love which I give you is that
of my Son Jesus. Burn away with the fire of love
every human misery, all egotism, all violence, all
hatred, all division, all sin.
I want to caress you with these hands of mine. You
are called to feel my caresses; you are destined to
bring everywhere the comfort of my motherly
tenderness. Let your hearts become sensitive, open,
humble, meek, tender and compassionate.
You become the precious instruments of the triumph
of Divine Mercy upon the world.”
“You must become the silent and
courageous artisans of this general
renewal. Take into your arms this
poor ailing humanity and bring it to
the maternal clinic of my Immaculate
Heart , that it may be healed by your
heavenly Mother.”
“I want you to be associated in my
motherly work of co-redemption.
Become therefore the sign of my
motherly presence and give to everyone
the charism of my soothing balm.
You will see the greatest marvels
everywhere, because the times of my
maternal co-redemption have arrived.”
“I am bringing you again to distant places
and asking of you such a toilsome work and
a very heavy task. But I am carrying and
leading you, sustaining and assisting you,
consoling and encouraging you. I am
lighting up for you the way along which you
must go. Your heavenly Mother takes you by
the hand and leads you along the bright,
holy and beautiful roads which lead you to
paradise. Let yourself be carried in my
motherly arms, my little child, and you will
see everywhere the marvels of grace and
mercy of my Immaculate Heart.”
“Entrust to the angels of light of my Heart
all that has to do with this new itinerary of
yours. They will carry you on their wings
and will keep watch lest you strike your foot
against any obstacle.”
The power of the Gospel
   “Look at the immense nation and the huge number of my children,
    who still do not know Jesus and who walk in darkness. The is the
    time when the Gospel of salvation must be announced to all the
    peoples of the earth.
   The Gospel must be kept today to the letter. The Gospel must be
    lived today to the letter. The Gospel must be preached today to the
    letter.
   The power of evangelization is in its fidelity and its authenticity. It is
    not in the adapting of the message of Christ to the various cultures,
    but in the bringing of all cultures to Christ that the duty of
    evangelization, entrusted to you, is carried out.
   The divine Word must therefore be lived and proclaimed by you to
    the letter, and announce to all the people of the earth!
   I am the Mother and teacher of all peoples, and the triumph of my
    Immaculate Heart cannot come in all its fullness until I have
    brought them all to my Son Jesus.
Mother of the poorest
   “I have wanted you to come to this great country. Most of my children are still
    living in ignorance of the Gospel, which my Son Jesus has taught you with the
    command given to the apostles, and passed on to you, to go and proclaim the good
    news to all the people of the earth.
   How many of these are still in the darkness of paganism or belong to other
    religions and therefore are in need of being led to the fullness of the truth, which
    is present only in the Catholic Church, founded by Jesus to bring the Gospel of
    salvation to all nations!
   How many of my children live in conditions of extreme misery and immense
    poverty. How many of them have neither home, nor work, nor food, nor clothing
    and, dressed in rags, spend their lives on the sidewalks along the roads, where
    they suffer and die in the midst of general apathy and indifference.
   Your coming is a special sign for them of my presence at their side, and of my
    painful motherly anxiety. I am the Mother of those who are ignored and
    abandoned by all.
   I am the mother of the poorest of the poor, and my Immaculate Heart wants to
    bring them the help they need: help to reach Jesus and to accept his Gospel of
    salvation.
   “Think of these brothers of yours, of those who even today are dying of hunger
    and need. Give to these little ones of mine that which you have in abundance! Do
    not busy yourself with gathering riches, when those goods which your Creator
    has put at the disposition of all should be distributed among all.”
         The Standard, the Shield and the Weapon
   “I gather you all today under my immaculate mantle. It is the shield
    with which I cover you, to shelter you from every attack in the great
    battle to which I call you. You must gird yourselves one again with
    this powerful shield, which I give you for your defense and your
    salvation.
   The weapon which I give you to fight with, is the chain which joins
    you to my Heart: the holy rosary. Beloved, recite it often, because it
    is only with your prayer, gathered into my Immaculate Heart that I
    will be able to move the great mercy of the Lord to manifest itself.
   The standard, under which I rally you, is that of Jesus Crucified,
    which must be displayed by you, because there is no other salvation
    but in the Cross of Jesus.
   With the rosary in one hand and the standard of the Crucified in the
    other, fight as of now the decisive phase of the battle.
I am the Rising Dawn
   “I am the Mother of God. I am also the Mother of all
    humanity.
   Today I want to cover the whole world with the
    immaculate mantle of my virginal motherhood. You are
    entering into the time of chastisement and of salvation, of
    suffering and of great mercy. At the beginning of this
    year, how much suffering and how many sorrows I see
    along you paths!
   These are my times. The Lord has assigned to me the post
    and the important mission which has been entrusted to me
    in these times.
   I am the Queen of peace and the rainbow of the new
    alliance. I am the dawn which is arising to announce the
    great day of the Lord.”
"Holy Catholic Church, which in the coming ages shall be called the Roman, my mother
and Mistress, true treasure of my soul, thou hast been the only consolation of my
banishment; the refuge and ease of my labors; my recreation, my joy and my hope ; thou
hast sustained me in my course; in thee have I lived as a pilgrim to the Fatherland and
thou hast nourished me after I had received in thee my existence in grace through thy
head, Christ Jesus, my Son and my Lord. In thee are the treasures and the riches of his
infinite merits; thou shalt be for his faithful children the secure way to the promised land ,
and thou shalt safeguard them on their dangerous and difficult pilgrimage. Thou shalt be
the mistress of the nations to whom all owe reverence; in thee are the rich and
inestimable jewels of the anxieties, labors, affronts, hardships, torments, of the cross and
of death, which are all consecrated by those of my Lord, thy Progenitor, thy Master, thy
Chief, and are reserved for his more distinguished servants and his dearest friends. Thou
hast adorned and enriched me with thy jewels in order that I might enter in the nuptials
of the Spouse; thou hast made me wealthy, prosperous and happy, and thou containest
within thee thy Author in the most holy Sacrament. My happy Mother, Church militant,
rich art thou and abundant in treasures! For thee have I always reserved my heart and my
solicitude; but now is the time come to part from thee and leave thy sweet
companionship, in order to reach the end of my course. Make me partaker of thy great
goods; bathe me copiously in the sacred liquor of the blood of the Lamb, preserved in
thee as a powerful means of sanctifying many worlds. At the cost of my life a thousand
times would I bring to thee all the nations and tribes of mortals, that they might enjoy
thy treasures. My beloved Church, my honor and my glory, I am about to leave thee in
mortal life; but in the eternal life I will find thee joyful in an existence which includes all
good. From that place I shall look upon thee with love, and pray always for thy increase,
thy prosperity and thy progress.”

“Pray to God for sinners.” “Tell the priest to build a
shrine here, and come here in procession”
                      “Come in procession. I want all my children to
                      walk together, united in prayer and love. Come to
                      me, not in isolation or division.
                      Come to me because I wish to lead all of you to
                      my Son, present in the Eucharist.” (Gobbi)
9. Our Lady of Lourdes
“ Repentance! Repentance! Repentance!
  Go and drink at the fountain, and wash yourself there.”
“Immerse yourselves in the fountain of Divine Mercy, which has
gushed from the Heart of Jesus and given to you through the
Sacrament of Reconciliation.”
“Your immaculate Mother calls all of you to be chaste in mind, heart
and body in order to live the virtues of faith, hope and charity.” (Gobbi)
Our Lady of Fatima
“Especially today, I am coming down again from heaven; through my
numerous apparitions; through the message which I give; and
through this extraordinary Work of my Marian Movement, to prepare
you to receive Jesus at the approaching moment of his glorious return.
                                                               (Gobbi)

of Fatima

"In Fatima, the Holy Virgin invites all to consider the earth as the place of our
pilgrimage to our definitive homeland, which is heaven. In fact, we are all pilgrims,
we are in need of the Mother who guides us." ----Pope Benedict XVI
Enormous multitude of pilgrims in the big square during Mass on 13th of May.   Fatima.
   “The miracle of the Sun: The greatest victory of
    my Immaculate Heart will be to cause Jesus to
    shine in the souls of all my children. Some are
    thinking: what a great marvel it would be if the
    miracle of the sun were to be repeated! But every
    day I repeat it for each one of you: when I lead you
    along the pathway of my Son; when I help you to
    be healed of sin; when I lead you to prayer, and
    when I formed you to holiness.
   It is the light of this sun that I cause to shine ever
    more brightly in your souls and your lives: the sun
    of my Son Jesus.” (To the priests)
Message of Fatima
   “I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and ask
    pardon for their sins. They must not continue to offend Our Lord,
    who is already deeply offended.”
   “The Blessed Mother can no longer restrain the Hand of her
    Divine Son from striking the world with just punishment for its
    many crimes.”
   “Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world. Add after
    each decade the following prayer:
    “O my Jesus, forgive us our sin, save us from the fire of Hell.
    Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of
    thy mercy.”
   “Pray, pray a great deal, and make sacrifices for sinners, for
    many souls go to Hell because they have no one to make sacrifices
    and pray for them.”
   “More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any
    other reasons.
   “Wars are a punishment from God for sins!”
   “God wishes to establish in the world the devotion to My
    Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be
    saved and there will be peace.”
   “Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate
    Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces from her, and that the Heart
    of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart
    of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her.”
   “I promise to help at the hour of death, with the graces necessary
    for salvation, whoever, on the first Saturday of 5 consecutive
    months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite 5 decades of
    the Rosary, and keep me company for 15 minutes while meditation
    on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making
    reparation to my Immaculate Heart.”
   “I came from heaven to ask you to offer me the five first Saturdays
    of the month. I asked that his day be spent in a spirit of reparation
    for the offenses which are directed at your heavenly Mother. Today
    I want all of you near me, the sorrowful Mother, to teach you to
    pray with confidence, to suffer with docility, to hope with heroism.”
   I asked of my three little children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, to
    whom I appeared in May, 1917:
    “Do you also want to offer yourselves as victims to the Lord, on the
    altar of my Immaculate Heart, for the salvation of all my poor sinful
    children?” If you accept this request of mine, you must do what I
    now ask of you:
    - Pray ever more and more, especially with the holy Rosary.
    - Make frequent hours of adoration and of Eucharistic reparation.
    - Accept with love all the sufferings which the Lord sends you. Offer
    your sufferings in a spirit of reparation, of purification and of
    sanctification. I myself lovingly take care to give consolation in
    suffering and, if it be in the will of the Lord, to offer the gift of
    healing.
    - Spread without fear the message which I am giving you. The divine
    heart of my Son Jesus has entrusted to my Immaculate Heart the
    last attempt to lead you all to salvation.”
   “I am asking you to offer it to me, with the recitation of the holy rosary, with the
    meditation upon its mysteries, with sacramental Confession and a Communion of
    reparation, and with the renewal of your act of Consecration to my Immaculate
    Heart.”
   “I am asking you to propagate again today the devotion of the five first Saturdays
    of the month. If you do what I ask of you, devotion to me will spread more and
    more; and I will be able to exercise the great power which the Most Holy Trinity
    has granted to me.”
   “These are the times of prayer and of penance. Pray especially for the conversion
    of poor sinners, of the atheists and of those who are far away. Offer prayers and
    sacrifices for the salvation of souls. Many are going to hell because there is no
    one to pray and to sacrifice for them.”
   “These are the times of conversion and of return to the Lord. I am taking you by
    the hand and leading you along the road of goodness, of love and of holiness. Let
    the law of the Lord become more and more observed and practiced.”
   “These are the times of my peace. I lead you to live in peace of heart and of soul.
    I cause you to remain in serenity, even in the midst of great turmoil. I mark you
    with my seal that you may spread everywhere the light of the faith, of holiness
    and of love.”
   My great net of love and of salvation has now been spread out in every part of the
    earth.”
   “These are the hours of battle, and therefore those weapons which I
    have prepared especially for you must be made use of: the
    consecration to my Immaculate Heart, the frequent recitation of the
    holy Rosary, and the practice of the five first Saturdays of the month
    in reparation for the offenses committed against my motherly Heart.
   During these Saturdays, I invite you to unite yourselves with me in
    the prayer of the Rosary, in the meditation of its mysteries, in
    confession, in taking part in Holy Mass and in a Communion of
    reparation.
   Today, reparation on the part of my children must also increase.
    Through you, this filial and loving crusade of reparation must
    spread and grow.
   Let the first Saturdays of every month be for you real encounters of
    reparative prayer and a generous response to the request which I
    have made of you.
   On these days, gather in cenacles with me. In these cenacles you
    will enter into my repose, because by praying and making
    reparations with your heavenly Mother, you will be consoled and
    strengthened by me.” ( Ref. 180)
   “Heed the anguished appeal of your Mother; turn back along the
    road which leads to God through prayer and conversion. All of you
    must consecrate yourselves to this Heart, and entrust yourselves to
    the arms of your heavenly Mother. I have been able to hold back the
    chastisement because of the prayers and sufferings of many of my
    children. Your yes has enabled me to add strength to my action of
    maternal intercession on your behalf. For this I have need of your
    prayer, of your suffering, of your life.”
   “If you, my beloved children, suffer and pray with me, you will
    succeed in leading many souls each day along the road which leads
    to paradise. You must be today the instruments of my maternal
    mercy.”
   “How many souls go to hell because there is no one to pray and
    sacrifice for them!” I said this at Fatima. Today I say: how many
    souls you can save from the fire of hell and lead to paradise, if
    together with me, you pray and sacrifice each day for them!”
The Caress of a Mother
   “How I love you, and what love of predilection I have for you! You
    must accustom yourself to understand this in so many things; in so
    many circumstances which are hardly noticed, such as today: the
    splendid bright day which I have given you, the blue of the clear
    skies, the luminous brightness of the snow, caressed by the sun, the
    color of my heavenly mantle under which I ever protect you; the
    white of my most pure robe with which I wish to cover you.
   These simple things are like the caress of a mother for you……….
    Entrust yourself more and more to me; do you not see that now I
    alone am your life?
   Pray now for your brothers; for the priests (members) of my
    Movement. Today, whatever you ask for them I will grant you.
   Transform every moment of your day into a colloquy with me. I
    want to hear your voice, my son! Turn everything into a prayer.”
   “These are the time of the great mercy. The Heart of Jesus is about
    to pour out torrents of his divine and merciful love. The hour of the
    great mercy for the world has come. It will come down as dew upon
    every wound; it will open the hardest hearts; it will purify souls
    immersed in sin; it will lead sinners to conversion and will grant to
    everyone the grace of a complete renewal.
   “I have the task from the Lord of leading you all along the road of
    goodness, of salvation and of peace.”
   You are the sign of my presence in these times. I am inviting you to
    live and to preach the Gospel to the letter. You become the powerful
    help which I am offering against the great evil of infidelity and
    apostasy. I am asking you to walk along the way which I have traced
    out for you. Thus you are able to give today a strong witness of love
    and hope, of faith and justice, of humility and purity, against the
    great evil of materialism and hedonism, of egoism and pride,
    avarice and impurity.”
   Through my Marian Movement, I am calling all my children to
    consecrate themselves to my Heart and to spread everywhere
    cenacles of prayer among priests, the faithful, children, youth, and
    in families. In this way I am able to obtain a great force of
    intercession and reparation, and to intervene in order to change the
    hearts of my poor sinful children
   The more this motherly triumph of mine comes about in the hearts
    and souls of my children in every increasing numbers, the more the
    chastisement is put off by you, and the more Jesus can pour out
    upon the world the torrents of his divine mercy.
   “I invite you all to follow me as your heavenly Mother who am
    coming down from heaven in order that I may become, in these
    times, your salvation and your sure liberation.” “I have wanted you
    here, to receive from your hands this Work of Mine.”
   “I am the dawn which precedes the day. My light is you who are
    consecrated to my Immaculate Heart. Increase in prayer, in
    humility, in suffering and in confidence.”
   “Do not be afraid. Do not allow yourselves to be seized with
    discouragement. I am with you always. I have wanted you here,
    because you must announce to each and all that the time has come
    when I will make myself manifest, in an extraordinary way to all
    those who have consecrated themselves to me and formed part of my
    victorious cohort.”
   “My Immaculate Heart opens and causes rays of my
    motherly and merciful love to descend upon you. It is
    within your time that the fulfillment of the message is
    taking place, the message which I have given you at
    Fatima.
   Upon this humanity which has again become pagan, I am
    causing the rays of love and light from my Immaculate
    Heart to come down. They shed light for you upon the way
    along which you must travel, to return to God along the
    road of conversion, of prayer, and of penance.
   Only in my Immaculate Heart will you find refuge in the
    moment of the chastisement, comfort in the hour of
    suffering, relief in the midst of unspeakable affliction,
    light in the days of densest darkness.
   “Upon this Church, darkened and wounded,
    stricken and betrayed, I am causing rays of love
    and of light from my Immaculate Heart to come
    down. My Immaculate Heart will gather together
    the little faithful remnant which, in suffering, in
    prayer and in hope, will await the return of my Son
    Jesus in glory. I urge you today to look to the great
    light which has spread out from Fatima over the
    events of this, your century.
   I entrust to the angels of light of my Immaculate
    Heart the task of bringing you to an understanding
    of these events, now that I have opened the sealed
    Book for you.”
The Fatima Prayers

    “O my God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee. I ask pardon
    for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not
    love Thee.”
   “Most holy trinity---Father, Son , and Holy Spirit----I adore Thee
    profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and
    Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world,
    in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences whereby
    He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred
    Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the
    conversion of poor sinners.”
   “O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of
    sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the
    Immaculate heart of Mary.”
 “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell.
    Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have the most need
    of thy mercy.”
“I am communicating to all my maternal will with a message which
 today has become anguished an urgent:
Be converted and repent your sins!
Be converted and return to the God who saves you!
Be converted and walk along the road of goodness, love and holiness
“Only in return to God is the possibility of salvation open up for
humanity. You must spread with courage my motherly invitation to
to conversion and return to the Lord, along the way of prayer and
penance, of charity and fasting.”
“Mortify yourselves with penance and corporal fasting. It is fasting
from evil and from sin that I prefer, of renunciation of smoking,
alcohol, motion pictures and television. I am also asking for bodily
fasting, at least every now and then, just as it has been requested of
you by my son Jesus in the Gospel, when He said: ‘certain kinds of
demons can be ejected only by prayer and fasting.’
   “My times have arrived. The times which I foretold
    in Fatima have come. I foretold to you the great
    chastisement which would strike this poor
    humanity which has become pagan. My
    extraordinary interventions which I have worked
    in order to bring humanity back onto the road of
    conversion and of its return to the Lord, have been
    neither accepted nor believed.
   Fire will descend from heaven and humanity will
    be purified and completely renewed, so as to be
    ready to receive the Lord Jesus who will return to
    you in glory.
   I also foretold to you the great crisis which would
    take place in the Church. She will be abandoned
    by many of her children.
   “I invite you to follow me along the road of prayer and
    penance, of purity and holiness.
   See how your countries have become victims of
    materialism and of unbridled search for pleasure! The law
    of God is being more and more violated. Impurity is being
    advertised through all the means of social communication.
   My times have arrived. Tell everyone to enter into the ark
    of my Immaculate Heart in order to be protected and
    saved by me. I request that you multiply your cenacles of
    prayer among priests, among children, among youth, and
    especially in families. My material presence among you is
    the sure sign of protection and of salvation.
   Open you hearts to hope, and live in the greatest trust and
    in complete abandonment to my Immaculate Heart.
    (To the priests. Gobbi)
The sign of my presence   “I am here with you, represented by my
                          statue. It is a triple sign I give you:
                          that of my eyes which suddenly come
                          alive; that of my heart, which exudes
                          a fragrance; that of the color of my
                          countenance, which changes its hue.
                          I want to show you that your heavenly
                          Mother is watching you with her eyes,
                          that I truly share in all the moment of
                          your life, that I am always among you.
                          I live with you, I prepare everything for
                          you, I lead you by the hand along the
                          difficult road of purification.
                          I am appearing in Europe, in Asia, in
                          Africa, in America, and in distant
                          Oceania. The whole world is wrapped
                          in my mantle. Increase your love for
                          me.” (Gobbi)
   “Each time you come to the feet of my image, to bring me
    your filial homage of love, I cause many graces to come
    down from my Immaculate Heart upon you. Your
    heavenly mother consoles and encourages you, moulds
    and leads you, strengthens and confirms you by the word
    which she gives you.”
   “Whoever meets you must be aware of the presence of
    their heavenly Mother who, through you, again caresses
    and consoles, who again helps even materially, who
    encourages and saves and who embraces and defends
    everyone.”
The ( National ) Rosary          For the Evangelization of
    (Nations)
1. Fatima Prayer: To Eucharistic Jesus, source of all
    evangelization.
   “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of
    hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in
    most need of thy mercy.”

2. Invocation of the Holy Spirit: Principal agent of
    evangelization.
   “Come, Holy Spirit! Fill the hearts of the (National) people
    and enkindle in them the fire of your love! Come by means
    of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of
    Mary, your well-beloved Spouse.”

3. Prayer to Our Lady of ( Nation ): Star of the new
   evangelization.
   “Hail Holy Queen, Mother of (Nation), come and present the
   (National) people to Jesus, the fruit of thy womb.
    Look upon them continually with mercy and through your
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart (Short version)
“ Virgin of Fatima, Mother of Mercy, we who belong to
   the Marian
Movement, consecrate ourselves in a special way to
   your
Immaculate Heart. We also consecrate our motherland
   (Nation) to
your Immaculate Heart. We intend to live with you,
   through you and
for you , all the obligations assumed by our Baptismal
   consecration
to bring about in ourselves that interior conversion so
   urgently
demanded by the Gospel, that we may be available only
   to do
always the will of the Father.
Allow us to dwell in the garden of your Immaculate
   Heart . Lead us
to a spiritual renewal with prayer and penance, with the
   daily
Finally pray one Our Father,
one Hail Mary, and one
Glory be, to the Holy
Father’s intention.

  • 3. The Fifth Glorious Mystery The Coronation And another sign appeared in the heavens, a Woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Fruit of the mystery: Trust in Mary’s intercession. “Make your request, my mother; for I will not refuse you.” (1 Kg. 2:20)
  • 4. Communion of Angels and saints Words of the Queen on I am the Queen of angels and saints
  • 5. 1.**The Queen of Angels and Saints “First shall be mentioned my most pure Mother, who gave Me human existence; Her I constitute my sole and Universal Heiress of all the gifts of nature, of grace and of glory that are mine. She shall be Mistress and Possessor of them all.”(Mary of agreda)
  • 6. 1A. Mistress of Angels and Men “I desire that She shall be Mistress of angels and men, claim over them full possession and dominion and command the service and obedience of all. The demons shall fear Her and be subject to Her. All the irrational creatures, the heavens, the stars, the planets, the elements with all the living beings, the birds, the fishes and the animals contained in them, shall likewise be subject to Her and acknowledge Her as Mistress, exalting and glorifying Her with Me.” (Mary of Agreda)
  • 7. 1B. The Queen of Angels and Saints “I am the Queen of all the Angels and Saints. If you allow yourselves to be led with docility by me, you will always feel at your side the precious help which is given to you by the angels and saints of paradise. Live the stupendous reality of the COMMUNION OF SAINTS.” (Gobbi)
  • 8. 1C. The Queen of the Apostles “All those consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, are called to be today to be the Apostles of the last times. I am calling you all to form a precious part of my crown and to become the brilliant stars which spread the light, the grace, the holiness, the beauty and the glory of your heavenly throughout every part of the world.” (Gobbi)
  • 9. Communion of Angels and saints Words of the Queen on  The Communion of Angels
  • 10. 2.** The Communion of Angels “The whole heavenly cohort of angels and saints forms a great crown of glory about your heavenly Mother. The light of my motherly presence is uniting the heavenly world to the earthly one, in a PERENNIAL COMMUNION OF PRAYER and love.” (Gobbi) “I want to make deeper stronger and more extraordinary your communion of life, of love and of joy with the saints in paradise.”
  • 11. 2A. Communion of Angels “I urge you to live in union of life with the Angels of the Lord. They light up your path, take you by the hand and lead you along the path of light, of love and of holiness. They give you courage and comfort in the many difficulties, and support you in your human weakness. They defend you against the attacks of Satan, against his numerous obstacles and snares. (Gobbi)
  • 12. 2B. Communion of Angels The great battle which is now being waged is above all at the level of the spirits, between heaven and earth, between the Angels and the demons. You are involved in this great struggle, which is immensely above and beyond you. So you must be particularly close to those who are close to you in the great encounter, who have great power, who assist you in fighting and who lead you to certain victory. You must pray much to the Angels. This is the hour of the Angelic powers.” (Gobbi)
  • 13. "To the holy angels, who have obeyed thy holy and just will, I assign as habitation the highest heavens as their proper and eternal abode, and with it the joys of eternal vision and fruition of our Divinity. I desire that they enjoy its everlasting possession together with our company and friendship. I decree, that they recognize my Mother as their legitimate Queen and Lady, that they serve Her, accompany and attend upon Her, bear Her up in their hands in all places and times, obeying Her in all that She wishes to ordain and command .” Mystical City of God. Mary of Agreda.
  • 14. Communion of angels and saints Words of the Queen on The Communion of Saints
  • 15. 3.****The Communion of Saints “Do not feel you are alone!” The saints of heaven are very close to you; they are helping you to carry out my plan. “Heaven and earth are united in this EXTRAORDINARY COMMUNION OF PRAYER, of love and of action at the orders of your heavenly Leader.” I invite you to live the joyous experience of COMMUNION OF SAINTS.” (Gobbi)
  • 16. A. The Communion of Saints PARADISE IS UNITED WITH EARTH. In my Immaculate Heart there takes place each day for you, the meeting with your brothers and sisters who have preceded you up here. Paradise is united with earth in a great communion of prayer. (Gobbi) “Paradise is united with earth in forming one single cohort whose heavenly Leader I am, to wage the most important part of the battle against Satan, and all the forces of evil. The Saints of heaven are casting light on your lives, and coming to your assistance with their powerful aid.
  • 17. 3B. The Communion of Saints “Let yourselves be filled with joy at the certainty that the Saints in paradise shed upon you their blessings. The Saints are assisting you with their prayers. They intercede for you.” (Gobbi) “They are at your side to console you in your afflictions, to give you strength in difficulties, to remove the obstacles which you find along your road, and to make you overcome the snares of your Adversary.” “They are close to my throne and follow your heavenly Mother wherever she goes.”
  • 18. C. The Communion of Saints “The communion of life with the Saints of paradise is the remedy which I am giving you. How great is their heavenly power.” “Live the stupendous reality of the communion of saints, which unites you, helps you and pledges you all to fight for the full triumph of Christ. Thus you are already contributing to the forming of the New Jerusalem, the holy city.” (Gobbi)
  • 19. “In the splendor of the saints, there is formed one single and unique family of the children of God.  In the splendor of the saints, you too are living these days of painful purification and of great tribulation. They are close to you, they are helping you, they are protecting you by their powerful intercession and are leading you to the complete fulfillment of my motherly plan.  In the spendor of the saints, you are consoled in your suffering. You must live out the present moments and bear the weight of the great trial.  In the splendor of the saints continue this, your so wearisome and extraordinary journey, my littlest child, called to carry the light of Christ to so many souls darkened by sin, and the love and the comfort of the Mother to many sick and wounded hearts. Upon each step which you take, your heavenly Mother will cause hope, confidence and joy to blossom forth.” (Gobbi)
  • 20. "From the multitudes of men, in the fullness of my good will, I call, select and separate all the just and the predestined, who through my grace save themselves by imitating Me, doing my will and obeying my holy law. These, next to my most pure Mother, I appoint as the inheritors of all my mysteries, my blessings, my sacramental treasures, of my humility, meekness of heart; of the virtues of faith, hope, and charity of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance; of my divine gifts and favors; of my Cross, labors, contempt, poverty and nakedness.  I assign to them the trials I have chosen for Myself in this life, as a pledge of my friendship, in order that they may undergo them with joy. I offer them my protection and defense, my holy inspirations, my favors and powerful assistance, my blessings and my justification, according to each one's disposition and degree of love. I promise to be to them a Father, a Brother and a Friend, and they shall be my chosen and beloved children, and as such I appoint them as the inheritors of all my merits and treasures without limitation. I desire that all who dispose themselves, shall partake of the goods of my holy Church and of the Sacraments; that, if they should lose my friendship, they shall be able to restore themselves and recover my graces and blessings through my cleansing blood.” ( Mystical City of God. Mary of Agreda. )
  • 21. “For all of them shall be open the intercession of my Mother and of the saints, and She shall recognize them as her children, shielding them and holding them as her own. My angels shall defend them, guide them, protect them and bear them up in their hands lest they stumble, and if they fall, they shall help them to rise" (Ps. 90, 11, l2).------ Mystical City of God.
  • 22. “What is the Church if not the assembly of all the saints?” The Communion of saints is the Church.  Since all the faithful form one body, the good of each is communicated to the others. We must therefore believe that there exists a communion of goods in the Church. As this Church is governed by one and the same Spirit, all the goods she has received necessarily become a common fund.”  The “communion of saints” therefore has two closely linked meanings: communion “in holy things” and “among holy persons.”
  • 23. The Trinity addressed Mary as Mother of God Treasurer and Dispenser Powerful Intercessor
  • 24. 4. Power as Mother of God “The Son joyfully sees me at his side and shares with me his royal power over all the universe.” (Gobbi) At Her Assumption into heaven, Jesus crowned her not only with glory but also with power. He has given her power as Mother of God, to distribute the treasures of eternal life. Christ also promised a crown to all who loves Him. Raphael, The coronation of the Virgin, 1503. Vatican City.
  • 25. 4. Treasurer and Dispenser “I wish also that She be the Treasurer and Dispenser of all the goods in heaven and on earth. Whatever She ordains and disposes in my Church for my children, shall be confirmed by the three divine Persons. Whatever She shall ask for mortals now, afterwards and forever, We shall concede according to her will and wishes.” (Mary of Agreda.) Raphael, The coronation of the Virgin, 1503. Vatican City.
  • 26. 5.**** The most powerful intercessor “Whoever shall call upon Her from his heart shall not perish; whoever shall obtain her intercession shall secure for himself eternal life. What She asks of Us, shall be granted, and We shall always hear her requests and prayers and fulfill her will; for She has consecrated Herself perfectly to what pleases Us.” (Mary of Agreda) Diego Rodriguez de Silva, The Coronation of the Virgin. 1641. Museo del Prado. Madrid.
  • 27. 5B. Pray for us The three Divine Persons, addressing the choir of holy angels and the other saints, said:"This is the Queen of all created things in heaven and earth; She is the Protectress of the Church, the Mistress of creatures, the Mother of piety, the Intercessor of the faithful, the Advocate of sinners, the Mother of beautiful love and holy hope. (Mary of Agreda) Diego Rodriguez de Silva, The Coronation of the Virgin. 1641. Museo del Prado. Madrid.
  • 28. 5C. Pray for us Not She has changed, nor is her love less ardent, nor would we experience less of her intercession and protection, if in troubled times we would hasten to her with the same sentiments of humility and fervor, asking for her prayers and trustfully relying upon Her for help, as was the case with those devoted Christians in the first beginning. Without a doubt the whole Catholic Church would then immediately experience the same assistance of the Queen throughout the whole world. (Mary of Agreda) Diego Rodriguez de Silva, The Coronation of the Virgin. 1641. Museo del Prado. Madrid.
  • 29. 5A. Pray for us “My children, I come to pray for you and to ask Jesus’ blessing upon you. Jesus is always ready to respond to my prayers. Entrust yourselves to my prayers. Give yourselves to me, and your prayers will be answered by my Son.” Diego Rodriguez de Silva, The Coronation of the Virgin. 1641. Museo del Prado. Madrid
  • 30. All the offices and titles of honor, which the most blessed Mary held in the Church, that of Queen, Mistress, Mother, Governess and Teacher, and all the rest, were given to her by the Omnipotent not as empty and fruitless names, but were accompanied by the superabundant plenitude of grace which is proper and which the Almighty can communicate to each. This plenitude consisted in this, that as Queen She knew all that concerned her reign and its extent; as Mistress She knew the measure of her power; as Mother She knew all the children and dependents of her household, without excepting anyone through all the ages of the Church until the end; as Governess She knew all that were subject to Her; and as Teacher, She possessed the wisdom and science through which the holy Church, by her intercession, was to be instructed and guided, while enjoying the presence and the influence of the Holy Ghost until the end of the world.
  • 31. Hence our great Queen had a clear knowledge not only of all the saints that preceded or followed Her in the Church, of their lives, their works, their deaths, and rewards in heaven; but also of all the rites, ceremonies, decisions, and festivities of the Church in course of the ages, and of all the reasons, motives, necessities and opportunities, in and for which they were established with the assistance of the Holy Ghost. For He gives us our spiritual nourishment in proper time for the glory of the Lord and the increase of the holy Church. As I have spoken of this matter in the course of this history, especially in the second part, I need not repeat it here. From her full knowledge and her corresponding holiness, there arose within the heavenly Instructress a certain thankful eagerness, to introduce into the Church militant the worship, veneration and festivities observed by the holy angels in the triumphant Jerusalem, and thus imitate, as far as was possible, what She had so often seen
  • 32. She commenced to practice by Herself many of the ceremonies, rites and exercises, which were afterwards introduced in the Church; and these She also inculcated and impressed upon the Apostles, in order that they might introduce them as far as the circumstances then allowed. She not only invented the exercises of the Passion, of which I have spoken above, but many other customs and ceremonies which were later on received in the churches, in the congregations and religions. For whatever She knew as pertaining to the worship of the Lord or the practice of virtue, She performed, and in her wisdom She was ignorant of nothing that ought to be known. Among these exercises and rites was the celebration of the feasts of the Lord and of Herself, in order to renew the memory of the benefits for which She stood indebted, as well the benefits relating in general to the human race.
  • 33. On the eighth day of December of each year She celebrated her Immaculate Conception with a jubilee and gratitude beyond all human words; for this privilege was for the great Queen of the highest importance and value. She imagined Herself altogether incapable of ever acknowledging it with sufficient gratitude. She commenced her exercises on the evening before and spent the whole night in admirable devotions, shedding tears of joy, humiliating Herself, prostrating Herself and singing the praises of the Lord. She deeply reflected, that She was formed of the same earth and descended from Adam according to the common order of nature; that She was preserved and exempted from the weight of the same guilt and conceived with such a plenitude of graces and gifts only because She was set apart and snatched from the rest by the Almighty. She invited her own angels to help Her to return proper thanks, and in union with them She alternated new songs of praise.
  • 34. After She had spent the whole night in these exercises, Christ descended from heaven and the angels raised Her to his royal throne in heaven, where the celebration of the feast was continued with new glory and accidental joy of the courtiers of the heavenly Jerusalem. There the blessed Mother prostrated Herself and adored the most holy Trinity, again giving thanks for the benefit of her immunity from sin and her Immaculate Conception. Then She again took her place at the right hand of Christ her Son and the Lord himself as it were acknowledged the goodness of the eternal Father in having given Him a Mother so worthy and so full of grace, exempt from the common guilt of Adam. Anew the three divine Persons confirmed upon Her this privilege, as it were ratifying and approving it and pleasing Themselves in thus having distinguished Her among all the creatures. In order to give repeated testimony to this truth, a voice proceeded from the throne in the name of the Father, saying: "Beautiful are thy footsteps, O prince's Daughter, conceived without sin." Another in the name of the Son, said: "Altogether pure and without contact of guilt is my Mother, who gave Me human form to redeem men." And in the name of the Holy Spirit: "All fair art thou, my Spouse, all fair art thou and without stain of the universal guilt."
  • 35. In between these voices were heard the choirs of all the angels and saints, singing in sweetest harmony: "Most holy Mary, conceived without original sin. To all these honors the most prudent Mother answered by thanksgiving, worship and praise of the Most High, rendered with such profound humility that it passed all angelic understanding. In order to conclude the solemnity She was raised to the intuitive and beatific vision of the most holy Trinity; and after enjoying this glory for some hours, She was brought back by the angels to the Cenacle. This was the manner in which her Immaculate Conception was solemnized after the Ascension of her divine Son. (Mary of Agreda)
  • 36. The Coronation of the Mother of God Words of the Queen on My power as Mother, Advocate and Protectress
  • 37. 6.**** The Coronation of the virgin set in the infinite panorama of paradise, earth, and hell. God, the Father: “This throne is yours. It is here that you will intercede for the world. I will hear whatever you say, and I will give to you whatever your heart desires.” “Trust in Mary and expect miracles.” (St. John Bosco) Enguerrand Quarton, The Coronation of the Virgin. Musee Municipal, Villeneuve Avignon.
  • 38. THE CORONATION OF THE MOTHER OF GOD.  We call that the throne of the Divinity, from which God manifests Himself to the saints as the principal cause of their glory and as the infinite, eternal God, independent of all things and on whose will all creatures depend, from which He manifests Himself as the Lord, as the King, as the Judge and Master of all that is in existence. This dignity Christ the Redeemer possesses, in as far as He is God, essentially, and as far as He is man, through the hypostatic union, by which He communicates his Godhead to the humanity. Hence in heaven He is the King, the Lord and supreme Judge; and the saints, though their glory exceeds all human calculation, are as servants and inferiors of this inaccessible Majesty. In this the most holy Mary participates in a degree next inferior and in a manner otherwise ineffable and proportionate to a mere creature so closely related to the Godman; and therefore She assists forever at the right hand of her Son as Queen (Ps. 44, 10), Lady and Mistress of all creation, her dominion extending as far as that of her divine Son, although in a different manner.
  • 39. After placing the most blessed Mary on this exalted and supereminent throne, the Lord declared to the courtiers of heaven all the privileges She should enjoy in virtue of this participation in his majesty. The Person of the eternal Father, as the first principle of all things, speaking to the angels and saints, said to them: "Our Daughter Mary was chosen according to our pleasure from amongst all creatures, the first one to delight Us, and who never fell from the title and position of a Daughter, such as We had given Her in our divine mind; She has a claim on our dominion, which We shall recognize by crowning Her as the legitimate and peerless Lady and Sovereign." The incarnate Word said: "To my true and natural Mother belong all the creatures which were created and redeemed by Me; and of all things over which I am King, She too shall be the legitimate and supreme Queen." The Holy Ghost said: "Since She is called my beloved and chosen Spouse, She deserves to be crowned as Queen for all eternity."
  • 40. Having thus spoken the three divine Persons placed upon the head of the most blessed Mary a crown of such new splendor and value, that the like has been seen neither before nor after by any mere creature. At the same time a voice sounded from the throne saying: "My Beloved, chosen among the creatures, our kingdom is Thine; Thou shalt be the Lady and the Sovereign of the seraphim, of all the ministering spirits, the angels and of the entire universe of creatures. Attend, proceed and govern prosperously over them, for in our supreme consistory We give Thee power, majesty and sovereignty. Being filled with grace beyond all the rest, Thou hast humiliated Thyself in thy own estimation to the lowest place; receive now the supreme dignity deserved by Thee and, as a participation in our Divinity, the dominion over all the creatures of our Omnipotence. From thy royal throne to the centre of the earth Thou shalt reign; and by the power We now give Thee Thou shalt subject hell with all its demons and inhabitants. Let all of them fear Thee as the supreme Empress and Mistress of those caverns and dwelling-places of our enemies. In thy hands and at thy pleasure We place the influences and forces of the heavens, the moisture of the clouds, the growths of the earth; and of all of them do Thou distribute according to thy will, and our own will shall be at thy disposal for the execution of thy wishes.
  • 41. Thou shalt be the Empress and Mistress of the militant Church, its Protectress, its Advocate, its Mother and Teacher. Thou shalt be the special Patroness of the Catholic countries; and whenever they, or the faithful, or any of the children of Adam call upon Thee from their heart, serve or oblige Thee, Thou shalt relieve and help them in their labors and necessities. Thou shalt be the Friend, the Defender and the Chieftainess of all the just and of our friends; all of them Thou shalt comfort, console and fill with blessings according to their devotion to Thee.  In view of all this We make Thee the Depositary of our riches, the Treasurer of our goods; we place into thy hands the helps and blessings of our grace for distribution; nothing do We wish to be given to the world, which does not pass through thy hands; and nothing do We deny, which Thou wishest to concede to men. Grace shall be diffused in thy lips for obtaining all that Thou wishest and ordainest in heaven and on earth, and everywhere shall angels and men obey Thee; because whatever is ours shall be thine, just as Thou hast always been ours; and Thou shalt reign with Us forever."
  • 42. In the execution of this decree and privilege conceded to the Mistress of the world, the Almighty commanded all the courtiers of heaven, angels and men, to show Her obedience and recognize Her as their Queen and Lady. There was another mystery concealed in this wonder, namely, it was a recompense for the worship and veneration, which, as is clear from this history, the most blessed Mary, notwithstanding that She was the Mother of God, full of grace and holiness above the angels and saints, had bestowed upon the saints during her mortal pilgrimage. Although during the time when they were comprehensors and She yet a pilgrim, it was for her greater merit, that She should humble Herself beneath them all according to the ordainment of the Lord; yet now, when She was in possession of the kingdom, it was just, that She should be venerated, worshipped and extolled by them as her inferiors and vassals. This they also did in that most blessed state, in which all things are reduced to their proper proportion and order. Both the angelic spirits and the blessed souls, while rendering their adoration to the Lord with fear and worshipful reverence, rendered a like homage in its proportion to His most blessed Mother; and the saints who were there in their bodies prostrated themselves and gave bodily signs of their worship.
  • 43. WORDS OF THE QUEEN. (The Virgin Mary speaks to Sister Mary of Agreda, Spain.)  My daughter, if anything could lessen the enjoyment of the highest felicity and glory which I possess, and if, in it, I could be capable of any sorrow, without a doubt I would be grieved to see the holy Church and the rest of the world in its present state of labor, notwithstanding that men know me to be their Mother, Advocate and Protectress in heaven, ready to guide and assist them to eternal life. In this state of affairs, when the Almighty has granted me so many privileges as his Mother and when there are so many sources of help placed in my hands solely for the benefit of mortals and belonging to me as the Mother of clemency, it is a great cause of sorrow to me to see mortals force me to remain idle, and that, for want of calling upon me, so many souls should be lost. But if I cannot experience grief now, I may justly complain of men, that they load themselves with eternal damnation and refuse me the glory of saving their souls.”
  • 44. “How much my intercession and the power I have in heaven are worth has never been hidden in the Church, for I have demonstrated my ability to save all by so many thousands of miracles, prodigies and favors operated in behalf of those devoted to me. With those who have called upon me in their needs I have always shown myself liberal, and the Lord has shown himself liberal to them on my account. The Most High still wishes to give liberally of his infinite treasures and resolves to favor those who know how to gain my intercession before God. This is the secure way and the powerful means of advancing the Church, of improving the Catholic reigns, of spreading the faith, of furthering the welfare of families and of states, of bringing the souls to grace and to the friendship of God.” *****
  • 45. Inhis encyclical Redemptoris Mater, Pope John Paul II said: Thus there is a mediation: Mary places herself between her Son and mankind in the reality of their wants, needs and sufferings. She puts herself "in the middle", that is to say she acts as a mediatrix not as an outsider, but in her position as mother. She knows that as such she can point out to her Son the needs of mankind, and in fact, she "has the right" to do so. Her mediation is thus in the nature of intercession: Mary "intercedes" for mankind.[80]
  • 46. “She knows everything that happens in our lives and supports us with maternal love in our trials. Taken up to heavenly glory, Mary dedicates herself totally to the work of salvation. She wants every living person to know the happiness granted to her. She is a queen who give all that she possess , participating above all in the life and love of Christ.”
  • 47. As She was the Coadjutrix of salvation She was also to be the testamentary Executrix. For the Son placed all things in her hands, just as the Father had assigned the whole creation to Him. She was to execute his will and she was to distribute all the treasures acquired and due to her Son as God on account of his infinite merits. This understanding has been given me as part of this history for the exaltation of our Queen and in order that sinners might approach Her as Custodian of all the treasures gained by her Son our Redeemer in the sight of his eternal Father. All help and assistance is in the hands of most holy Mary and She is to distribute it according to her most sweet kindness and liberality. ---Mystical City of God. Mary of Agreda.
  • 48. Before speaking any of the seven last words, Jesus prayed to the Father and said: “First shall be mentioned my most pure Mother, who gave Me human existence; Her I constitute my sole and universal Heiress of all the gifts of nature, of grace and of glory that are mine. She shall be Mistress and Possessor of them all. The gifts of grace, of which as a mere creature She is capable, She shall actually receive now, while those of glory I promise to confer upon Her in their time. I desire that She shall be Mistress of angels and men, claim over them full possession and dominion and command the service and obedience of all. The demons shall fear Her and be subject to Her. All the irrational creatures, the heavens, the stars, the planets, the elements with all the living beings, the birds, the fishes and the animals contained in them, shall likewise be subject to Her and acknowledge Her as Mistress, exalting and glorifying Her with Me. I wish also that She be the Treasurer and Dispenser of all the goods in heaven and on earth. Whatever She ordains and disposes in my Church for my children, the sons of men, shall be confirmed by the three divine Persons; and whatever She shall ask for mortals now, afterwards and forever, We shall concede according to her will and wishes.“ Mystical city of God.

I am the Mother of the Second Evangelization I am guiding you as a star along the bright way of fidelity to Christ and to his Gospel. You must announce to all in its integrity.

Go into every place, even the most distant and out-of –the- way. Go to all my children, especially to the poor, the sinners, those furthest away, to those who are victims of evil, of vice, of egoism, of hatred, of impurity. Evangelize this poor humanity which has again become pagan after nearly two thousand years. Let the idols be destroyed, the idols it has built with its own hands: pleasure, money, pride, impurity, atheism, egoism, hatred and violence. Evangelize the suffering and divided Church. Let the Gospel of Jesus, preached and lived to the letter, become the only light. Evangelize all men.

Bring the light of his presence among you, so that the heavenly dew of Divine Mercy may descend in every part of the earth. I want to love you with this heart of mine. You are called to be the greatest love of my Immaculate Heart; you are destined to bring my love to every part of the world. The love which I give you is that of my Son Jesus. Burn away with the fire of love every human misery, all egotism, all violence, all hatred, all division, all sin. I want to caress you with these hands of mine.

The is the time when the Gospel of salvation must be announced to all the peoples of the earth.  The Gospel must be kept today to the letter. The Gospel must be lived today to the letter. The Gospel must be preached today to the letter.  The power of evangelization is in its fidelity and its authenticity. It is not in the adapting of the message of Christ to the various cultures, but in the bringing of all cultures to Christ that the duty of evangelization, entrusted to you, is carried out.  The divine Word must therefore be lived and proclaimed by you to the letter, and announce to all the people of the earth!  I am the Mother and teacher of all peoples, and the triumph of my Immaculate Heart cannot come in all its fullness until I have brought them all to my Son Jesus.

Most of my children are still living in ignorance of the Gospel, which my Son Jesus has taught you with the command given to the apostles, and passed on to you, to go and proclaim the good news to all the people of the earth.  How many of these are still in the darkness of paganism or belong to other religions and therefore are in need of being led to the fullness of the truth, which is present only in the Catholic Church, founded by Jesus to bring the Gospel of salvation to all nations!  How many of my children live in conditions of extreme misery and immense poverty. How many of them have neither home, nor work, nor food, nor clothing and, dressed in rags, spend their lives on the sidewalks along the roads, where they suffer and die in the midst of general apathy and indifference.  Your coming is a special sign for them of my presence at their side, and of my painful motherly anxiety. I am the Mother of those who are ignored and abandoned by all.  I am the mother of the poorest of the poor, and my Immaculate Heart wants to bring them the help they need: help to reach Jesus and to accept his Gospel of salvation.

It is the shield with which I cover you, to shelter you from every attack in the great battle to which I call you. You must gird yourselves one again with this powerful shield, which I give you for your defense and your salvation.  The weapon which I give you to fight with, is the chain which joins you to my Heart: the holy rosary. Beloved, recite it often, because it is only with your prayer, gathered into my Immaculate Heart that I will be able to move the great mercy of the Lord to manifest itself.  The standard, under which I rally you, is that of Jesus Crucified, which must be displayed by you, because there is no other salvation but in the Cross of Jesus.  With the rosary in one hand and the standard of the Crucified in the other, fight as of now the decisive phase of the battle.

In thee are the treasures and the riches of his infinite merits; thou shalt be for his faithful children the secure way to the promised land , and thou shalt safeguard them on their dangerous and difficult pilgrimage. Thou shalt be the mistress of the nations to whom all owe reverence; in thee are the rich and inestimable jewels of the anxieties, labors, affronts, hardships, torments, of the cross and of death, which are all consecrated by those of my Lord, thy Progenitor, thy Master, thy Chief, and are reserved for his more distinguished servants and his dearest friends. Thou hast adorned and enriched me with thy jewels in order that I might enter in the nuptials of the Spouse; thou hast made me wealthy, prosperous and happy, and thou containest within thee thy Author in the most holy Sacrament. My happy Mother, Church militant, rich art thou and abundant in treasures! For thee have I always reserved my heart and my solicitude; but now is the time come to part from thee and leave thy sweet companionship, in order to reach the end of my course. Make me partaker of thy great goods; bathe me copiously in the sacred liquor of the blood of the Lamb, preserved in thee as a powerful means of sanctifying many worlds. At the cost of my life a thousand times would I bring to thee all the nations and tribes of mortals, that they might enjoy thy treasures. My beloved Church, my honor and my glory, I am about to leave thee in mortal life; but in the eternal life I will find thee joyful in an existence which includes all good. From that place I shall look upon thee with love, and pray always for thy increase, thy prosperity and thy progress.”
