DAY 44 – MARY, QUEEN OF ALL SAINTS, PRAY FOR US “CAN’T QUIT – WON’T FALL – PUT ME IN THE FIGHT!”  The Soldier’s Creed of the United States Army states: “I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.” Former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens said: “One of the things that makes a warrior into a warrior is that they are dedicated to developing their strength in service to others.” Whether it’s a Navy SEAL or a saint, we admire those who put it all on the line — go “all in!” — those who are totally dedicated to the mission. In the military, this dedication is revealed in the Warrior Ethos, four simple lines embedded in the Soldier’s Creed: I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade. Sustained and developed through discipline, commitment, and pride, these four lines motivate every soldier to persevere and, ultimately, to refuse defeat. What would happen if we dedicated ourselves to the training and mission of Jesus Christ with the same intensity Eric Greitens and his comrades dedicated themselves to the “Warrior Ethos” and to their training to become Navy SEALs? What is keeping us from becoming, in essence, SEALS for Christ? We must learn the special operations (special ops) techniques and procedures for search and rescue missions of fallen comrades (those who have become weak in their faith). Although rarely wielded by the Catholics today, this supernatural strength and these techniques are truly authentic gifts of the Church that are field-tested and battle-hardened. We must commit ourselves to their restoration if we ever hope to stem the tide of evil and rescue our lost loved ones who may be destined for eternal damnation. (Excerpt from Church Militant Field Manual). PRAY A ROSARY Choose either: Rosary of the Day: Sorrowful Mysteries Traditional 54 Day Rotation: Sorrowful Mysteries PRAYERS FOR TRADITIONAL 54 DAY NOVENA THE SORROWFUL MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY Prayer before the recitation: Sign of the cross. Hail Mary. In petition (first 27 days): Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, blood red roses to remind thee of the passion of thy divine Son, with Whom thou didst so fully partake of its bitterness, each rose recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace.

As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee.

DAY 30 – MARY, HOUSE OF GOLD, PRAY FOR US SANCTIFY YOURSELF Pope Urban II launched the First Crusade in 1095 with the primary goal of the Christian re-conquest of the sacred city of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. So great was the pope’s speech in Clermont, France, on that day that the crowd was inspired to cry out: “Deus Vult! Deus Vult!” (“It is the will of God! It is the will of God!”). This became the battle cry of brave and noble knights who sought to recover that holy ground. In our vastly secularized modern world, the need has never been greater to reclaim the surrendered ground of the sacred. While it was nearly a millennium ago that Pope Urban II challenged would-be warriors to “reclaim the sacred,” in our day it was Pope John Paul II, in his January 6, 2000, Apostolic Letter, Novo Millennio Ineunte, who made his clarion call for us to put aside all fear and pursue daring apostolic goals which are rooted deeply in prayer. This is a call to return to our first priority, the Universal Call to Holiness: “All Christian faithful … are called to the fullness of the Christian life and to the perfection of charity.” The spiritual devastation of the last few decades compelled Pope John Paul II to draw up his master plan for the new millennium. In his plan, he emphasized the importance of “starting afresh from Christ”: “No, we shall not be saved by a formula but by a Person.” Thus, he called for pastoral initiatives that would focus on “Training in Holiness” and “Schools of Prayer.” St. Francis of Assisi affirms this training in holiness as the fundamental starting point: “Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.” Pope John Paul II challenges us to consider, “since baptism is a true entry into the holiness of God through incorporation into Christ and the indwelling of his Spirit, it would be a contradiction to settle for a life of mediocrity, marked by a minimalist ethic and a shallow religiosity … ‘Do you wish to become holy?’ It means to set before you the radical nature of the Sermon on the Mount: ‘Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect’ (Mt 5:48).” (Excerpt from Church Militant Field Manual). PRAY A ROSARY Choose either: Rosary of the Day: Sorrowful Mysteries Traditional 54 Day Rotation: Glorious Mysteries PRAYERS FOR TRADITIONAL 54 DAY NOVENA THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY Prayer before the recitation: Sign of the cross. Hail Mary. In petition (first 27 days): Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, full-blown white roses, tinged with the red of the passion, to remind thee of thy glories, fruits of the sufferings of thy Son and thee, each rose recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee! Thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee.

I will try to explain this as best I can.  I’m not a scholar so this will be a simple article.

I see that women are trying to take upon themselves without regard to the Magisterium’s position on the subject of the male Priesthood for their own—-sorry women you don’t own it and we don’t belong to it because we weren’t invited to the party for a good reason I’m sure.  We’re invited to the Lord’s party but the Lord has jurisdiction about His Priesthood and he asked that it was to be male orientated.   This is definitely a worldly thing taking the Priesthood without being asked to do so by our Lord.  One of the mottos of the church is that we are in the world not of it.  I believe that the priesthood is in the world but not controlled by the world.  The Holy Spirit directs it.  What we humanly do is a different story and has nothing to do with the Holy Spirit. The bad I infer is that we humans of the priesthood sometimes make mistakes and sometimes people make mistakes that they are called to the priesthood.  Were all called to the Priesthood of Christ.  Yet He never bestowed this official, magisterial priesthood on women.  He could have but He never did for some mysterious reason.  He held women in high regard but He knows men and women so I have to TRUST, OBEY AND REASON OUT THAT OUR LORD KNOWS WHY HE DID THIS THEN–AND WHY ITS STILL IMPORTANT NOW.   We cannot understand it in these times on a worldly level but I think our Lord has His reasons for this now and in the future.

Ladies I am one of you and if you are close to your Lord as the women were in the time of His mother you will understand that this is to be left alone.   I’m talking to all of you and reaching out to the dissenters who are pretending to be part of the magisterial priesthood and to those who are aiding and abetting them.   Come back to your Lord and forget this.  It’s not that important.  It has nothing to do with worldly, human so-called feminist rights.   It’s not even in the running with us owning property or making our own decisions and independent thinking.

The Lord said, “You can do nothing without me.”  This is even telling about those who try to usurp the priesthood from the Lord Almighty.  Don’t touch what does not belong to you and has never been bestowed upon you for whatever mysterious reason.   This knowledge belongs to our Lord and does not belong to us.

In the end I believe that Christ will choose wisely for His priesthood barring our human frailties and blindness.

This being said I don’t feel slighted at all.  I think the Lord had His reasons for making it all-male but not at the cost of the female but again I say for the mystery’s of the Kingdom.

I also suspect in a mysterious way it has something to do with a test for all of us that may even go all the way back to the fall.  Something not as yet explained but has to do with the Kingdom and our Lord Jesus Christ.  We shouldn’t be in defiance at this time of all times now or in the future against our Lord and Savior.  We must not rebel as the fallen angels did and appears to be happening with us about the magisterial priesthood.  Keep this to in mind children of God.  You may be in defiance of God and His true Priesthood as well on some level which has nothing to do with women’s rights, radical feminism or the world for that matter.   This maybe on a level that only our Lord understands and we need to be patient to understand from Him.

He will come and I suggest we wait for Him.  You want to ask Him on Judgment day why an all male priesthood, then by all means I invite you to do so because I have a sneaking suspicion He will invite you to do so as well.   May you have courage because I wont when I meet up with Him because I will hope to God He doesn’t sent me away from Him.  My hope is my conscience will be clear in all things on that day.  May yours be so as well.

In its infinite mystery and it is a mystery because I’m fortunate to still be in awe of the Lord.  I don’t think we will ever completely read our Lord with what has been given to us by Him.

The church has repeated and the world has ignored its teaching of the priesthood referred to in the Magisterium.  The Pope has patiently explained that the Magisterium has no authority to confer priestly ordinance on women.  When are we going to listen to this command which comes from the Lord no doubt?  I don’t believe radical feminism comes from God but God loves and respects women or He wouldn’t have sent His Son through the womb of a human woman.

This is understandable in many ways.  Ways that the world just doesn’t understand.  The Lord has a plan and in its mystical and mysterious plan.  Even the priesthood today in all the scandals thrown at it even to this day it is still a mystery and an awesome vocation to me as a woman.

I like this about the Lord.  It tells me that He is awesome and that He is in control even against evil and dark forces which would like to pull down His Bride and His Priesthood.   Our Lady in her appearances (Were not expected to believe in these apparitions according to church teaching.) has never spoken of a female priesthood.

This in an indirect way is a telling statement.  Brothers and Sisters leave this alone for our Lord.  This is not our call and never has been.  Let sleeping dogs lie.

Let us be patient in the Lord.
