This is an important weekend.
The Holy Father will consecrate the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun. He is leading the Church in prayer and adoration. Recall what happened in Syria after the vigil for peace. Something is happening.
I think of the prayer of Esther...
Queen Esther, seized with mortal anguish, had recourse to the Lord. Taking off her splendid garments, she put on garments of distress and mourning. In place of her precious ointments she covered her head with dirt and ashes. She afflicted her body severely; all her festive adornments were put aside, and her hair was wholly disheveled...We have a Pope who set aside his splendid garments, the trappings of his office... who humbles himself in prayer before the Madonna.
Something is happening.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are all gathered for this event of the Year of Faith devoted to Mary, Mother of Christ and of the Church, our Mother. The statue of Our Lady, which has come from Fatima, helps us to feel her presence in our midst. Mary always brings us to Jesus. - Pope Francis, Vatican Radio
United in the prayers of the Rosary.
