The message of Our Blessed Mother,
“God's warning is over the world. Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do. Two-thirds of the world is lost and the other part must pray and make reparation for the Lord to take pity. The devil wants to have full domination over the earth. He wants to destroy. The earth is in great danger."
At Akita she said
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
Our Lady of Akita, as at Fatima, warns the world of a life divorced from God and what harm that can do even in the Church. Yet, even through a great crisis of faith, it is prayer, penance and trust that will save humanity.
Are these messages true? All one needs to do is look at the world today, the state of the Church the rejection of God, the undermining of His Holy Word - enough said.
“Do not say, ‘His mercy is great; my many sins he will forgive.’ For mercy and anger alike are with him; his wrath comes to rest on the wicked. Do not delay turning back to the LORD, do not put it off day after day. For suddenly his wrath will come forth; at the time of vengeance, you will perish.” (Sirach 5:4-7).
Mary told us to renew devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, the importance of saying the Rosary every day. his column therefore will contain Adoration, the Rosary, the Holy Word of God and prayer. This in all humility but with the grace of God we will seek to do.

Todays Word of God
John 12:44-50 - I, the light, have come into the world
Jesus declared publicly:
‘Whoever believes in me
believes not in me
but in the one who sent me,
and whoever sees me,
sees the one who sent me.
I, the light, have come into the world,
so that whoever believes in me
need not stay in the dark any more.
If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfully,
it is not I who shall condemn him,
since I have come not to condemn the world,
but to save the world.
He who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already:
the word itself that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.
For what I have spoken does not come from myself;
no, what I was to say,
what I had to speak,
was commanded by the Father who sent me,
and I know that his commands mean eternal life.
And therefore what the Father has told me
is what I speak.’
From the Acts of the Apostles
Acts 12:24-13:5 · 'I want Barnabas and Saul set apart'
The word of God continued to spread and to gain followers. Barnabas and Saul completed their task and came back from Jerusalem, bringing John Mark with them.
In the church at Antioch the following were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen, who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. One day while they were offering worship to the Lord and keeping a fast, the Holy Spirit said, ‘I want Barnabas and Saul set apart for the work to which I have called them.’ So it was that after fasting and prayer they laid their hands on them and sent them off.
So these two, sent on their mission by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and from there sailed to Cyprus. They landed at Salamis and proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews; John acted as their assistant.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
To adore with special reflections or music - www.onlyingod.com/adoration
Mary said 'I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary. The Rosary shall be a powerful armour against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.'
To day we pray the Glorious Mysteries
O Lord Jesus Christ,
You have given us Your precious Body and Blood
to be our meat and drink,
grant that through frequent reception
of You in the Holy Eucharist,
I may be strengthened in mind and body
to do Your holy will.
“I will not allow myself to be so absorbed in the whirlwind of work as to forget about God. I will spend all my free moments at the feet of the Master hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.”
Prayer to St Michael
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in our hour of conflict. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Each day we end with a Fatima prayer
The Sacrifice Prayer
Oh 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.
