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
Matthew 11:25-30 - You have hidden these things from the wise
and revealed them to little children
Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

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 Luminous Mysteries
O My Jesus,
often have I signed the death warrant by my sins;
save me by Thy death from that eternal death
which I have so often deserved
Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world
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
