Pray for the World – #WordlessWednesday with #linky on a Tuesday
Many people around the world are crying. They are crying for Paris, they are crying for the loss of loved ones. The world is hurting and there is a war going on between the truth and all that is good and hatred and all that is evil. We must pray for the world. Mary our Blessed Mother has called us to pray.
In 1972 Father Stefano Gobbi, a priest from Milan, Italy, was taking part in a pilgrimage to Fatima. While he was deep in prayer, praying for priests that were tempted to stray away from the Church, an interior voice urged Fr. Gobbi to have confidence in the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
According to the history of the Marian Movement of Priests, “What Fr. Gobbi had just experienced was an interior locution. It is not an apparition or other communication perceived by the human senses, but a spiritual phenomenon present in the life of the Church and described in manuals of Catholic theology. The messages (interior locutions) are the gift by which God wishes to make something known to humanity, in Fr. Gobbi’s particular case by means of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
“In July 1973, Fr. Gobbi began to write down these interior locutions which he was receiving. The messages, dating from July 1973 to December 1997, are published in the book, “To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons.”
Our Lady used Father Gobbi as a humble servant and messenger to get her words out to the people. This was the start of the Marian Movement of Priests. In 1973, 25 priests gathered for the first time. In 1974, the first cenacles of prayer among priests and faithful took place. These gradually spread, and by the end of 1996, Fr. Gobbi had many times visited the six continents.
Today, the faithful all around the world pray the cenacles and read Mary’s words sent to Fr. Gobbi. Every Tuesday morning I join a group at my church to pray the cenacles. We say a rosary along with the special cenacle prayers and readings. Mary wants us to pray to her more than ever today.
I can’t imagine all the pain, and grief mothers and fathers are going through after losing their children in the terrorist attack in Paris. Our Blessed Mother is suffering too, because she is Our mother, she is grieving for the whole world.
This morning I learned something about the recent terrorist attack that really spoke to me. Satan destroyed his followers before they were able to turn against him and follow the Lord and what is right. How did this happen?
Friday night at the concert hall, the band that performed was the Eagles of Death Metal, a Satanic rock band. At the moment the shooting occurred they were signing a song that praised the devil with lyrics that told the listener to kiss the devil. Over eighty satanic rock fans were killed. Does this mean that satan, through the evil works of ISIS is going to destroy more people who follow him? Maybe.
ISIS has said that they will continue to attack us and the United States is next. Just look at what our country has turned into. Satan appears on our televisions, in the movie theaters, on the covers of tabloid magazines – he has taken control of our culture and we need to fight to get it back. We need to pray to the Blessed Mother. We need her help to win the war against evil and Satan. She will ask her son to free us from evil and He will grant her wish, because she is his mother. Our Blessed Mother is crying for us.
“Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you, Blessed art thou among women and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
