Holy Mary, Mother of God: “Those are the graces for which people forget to ask”

Today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary. This feast was suppressed in the 1970 missal, but JPII restored it in 2002, so it is 12 September on both calendars. Cool!
Following is a condensed version of the Miraculous Medal story, and a little advice.

Catherine rose, knelt beside the Blessed Mother and rested her hands in the Virgin’s lap. Mary said: “God wishes to charge you with a mission. You will be contradicted, but do not fear; you will have the grace to do what is necessary. Tell your spiritual director all that passes within you. Times are evil in France and in the world.”
A pain crossed the Virgin’s face.
“Come to the foot of the altar. Graces will be shed on all, great and little, especially upon those who ask for them. You will have the protection of God and Saint Vincent. I always will have my eyes upon you. There will be much persecution. The cross will be treated with contempt. It will be hurled to the ground and blood will flow.” Then after speaking for some time, the Lady like a fading shadow was gone.
On Saturday, November 27, 1830, at 5:30 p.m., she retired to the Chapel with the other Sisters for evening meditation. Catherine heard the faint swish of silk… she recognized our Lady’s signal. Raising her eyes to the main altar, she saw her beautiful Lady standing on a large globe.
The Virgin Spoke, this time giving a direct order: “Have a Medal struck after this model. All who wear it will receive great graces; they should wear it around the neck. Graces will abound for persons who wear it with confidence.” HERE

When Saint Catherine was shown the model for the medal, in 3D, she noticed that certain gems within it appeared dim, and she asked Our Lady why they didn’t shine. Her response:
“Those are the graces for which people forget to ask.” HERE
Your Mother is literally begging you to beg her. Implore her Holy Name. Praying the Ave is like praying twice, because her Holy Name is found twice therein. Have you started praying the Rosary every day? Have you at least tried? Because I can assure you that you will succeed and your desire to recite it will win out, despite considerable effort from the enemy to prevent you. When you find you desire it, but “something comes up,” well that is Satan, my friend. He’s also the same one who throws down barricades to Daily Mass and Adoration. When Satan starts paying extra attention to you, it’s because he knows he’s losing his grip. Maintain your bearing, see this for what it is, and redouble your resolve.
Mary is in heaven right now, her palms outstretched to you, at the ready with weaponized Grace.
Won’t you join me today in the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary? Approved by Pope Sixtus V in 1587, it contains so many sweet, sweet names and titles for Our Lady, I absolutely love it. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

  1. (Most) every day….And I too love the Litany and pray it after the Rosary in front of my Fatima and new OLOR statue (a gift from a dear soul in Italy). Also 3 Ave’s morning and night for the graces/virtues to combat my many sins and vices. And the Memorare after prayers for conversions.
    O Mary, conceived without sin; pray for us who have recourse to Thee.

    Thanks Mark. Great advice! The litany of Loreto is so beautiful. I think the Rosary is the means of driving out the Homosexual Network Strangling the Church and it’s chief—Antipope Francis the Apostate, as I fondly refer to him.
    The Immaculate Heart is getting ready to lay the stick on. I’d invite y’all to take a look at Bro. Alexis Bugnolo’s analysis today of Benedict’s faux resignation. The photo alone is worth the price of admission.
    Best from the Big Apple, where this very night you all may be warmed to know in the heart of midtown there were two Old Latin Masses offered simultaneously—the main altar at Holy Innocents Church and the Lady Altar to the right side. Mystical doubleplay.

    1. +++++ and Gold Stars, Br. Beowulf! Thank you for the enheartening report: Mystical doubleplay. YAY! I was most grateful to see Br. Bugnolo’s apology to our Holy Father, Pope Benedict at the end of the article to which you link as well as his explanation for his change of heart/mind in the comments regarding the bad-actor label he’d previously pinned on PPBXVI. I hope and pray that Miss B will also have a change of heart about calling names i e worst pope ever.

    2. I don’t find Bugnolo’s analysis convincing myself. One thing that casts doubt on it for me is Benedict’s statements in 2013, in which he speaks as though he accepted the papacy as an “always” and “forever” and, therefore, as something so permanent that it could never be entirely abdicated by him, but only partially abdicated.
      This makes Benedict’s idea of a plural papacy seem more like a belief he sincerely holds than but an idea he knows is false and which he used only to dupe his enemies and save the day.
      For this reason, I think the facts currently available to us better support Barnhardt’s Benedict in Error Theory than Bugnolo’s Benedict is Clever Theory. (Of course, there is some overlap between the two theories, as even Barnhardt recognizes that Benedict may have been pressured.)
      Those where I stand for now at least.

  3. Absolutely, Islam_. That charge against the Holy Father always annoys me. He is he Holy Father. Respect him and his Office. And perhaps, try to understand the pressures he must be facing, a single lonely man targeted by evil men and Lucifer behind them, residing at the top of the Church at this epochal turning point. Incredible spiritual and intellectual pressures.
    Given what is true about Bergoglio, then what is true about Pope Benedict XVI precedent to Bergoglio is also true. Especially after reading Br, Bugnolo’s *very* important article referenced above by Brother B, my thinking about Pope Benedict XVI has confirmed itself in the knowledge that the Holy Father my instead by the most holy important Pope in our history extending back to St. Peter.
