Our Lady of Sorrows Novena 2017 Third Day

Image
DÜRER, Albrecht Christ Among the Doctors 1506

And his parents went every year to Jerusalem, at the solemn day of the pasch, And when he was twelve years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast, And having fulfilled the days, when they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem; and his parents knew it not. And thinking that he was in the company, they came a day's journey, and sought him among their kinsfolks and acquaintance. And not finding him, they returned into Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers. And seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? behold thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my fat…

MUSLIM TERRORISTS CAUSED The I-85 Bridge Fire & Collapse In Atlanta

Image
MUSLIM TERRORISTS Caused the I-85 Bridge Fire & Collapse How do I know this? Because the FBI said that "there is no evidence that this is related to terrorism."

Law Enfrocement & Media Policy is to never, ever blame MUSLIMS for terrorist activity.

Here's what will happen:

The FBI will say that this suspicious fire is not related to terrorism.

The FBI will scratch their heads and wonder what caused the fire and bridge to collapse.

The FBI will then close the case after a few months and go home....

Then there will be more bridge fires across the USA and the FBI will say that the bridge fires are not related to terrorism.

As of Friday morning, the cause of the fire that collapsed the northbound lanes of Interstate 85 is unknown. The fire, which started around 6:30 p.m. ET Thursday, broke out near the Buford-Spring Connector and the road gave way around 7 p.m. The blaze was contained by 8 p.m., though firefighters continued to tamp the smoldering embers as commuters…

Interstate 85 Georgia 30 March 2017
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta's notoriously tangled commutes were thrown into disarray Friday after a massive fire caused a bridge on Interstate 85 to collapse, completely shutting down the heavily traveled highway through the heart of the city. Traffic was bumper to bumper on nearby streets as people scrambled to find alternate routes after the fire broke out during rush hour Thursday afternoon. However, officials said no one was hurt despite dramatic images of towering flames and plumes of smoke. "This is about as serious a transportation crisis as we can imagine," Atlanta Mayor Kasim…

Of The Five Wounds Of Our Blessed Saviour: The Left Foot

Image
CANO, Alonso  Crucifixion  1636-38
The Left Foot
As we have noted in the right foot Constancy in the love of our Savior;so in this we will consider Conformity of our will unto God Almighty's,  which is one of the highest Perfections we can seek after in this life; the which although we can never arrive unto, in that perfection in which our Savior had it, his will being the will of his Father: yet we are bound to aspire to the highest perfection in it that can be attained unto by creatures; praying daily to have the will of God here on earth performed as exactly as in heaven.
1. See with what readiness our Savior giveth up his left foot, to be dealt withal like unto the right, and seeing it to be the will of his heavenly Father that the steps of each Foot should be alike, most mildly permitteth his Crucifiers to place it by the other and to pierce it also with a nail. What torments thou hast imagined to be in the other,consider the same to have been in this; and here see that of the P…

Of The Five Wounds Of Our Blessed Saviour: The Right Foot

Image
GRÜNEWALD, Matthias  The Crucifixion (detail)  c. 1515
Behold thy loving Saviour most willingly putting forth his sacred right Foot to be nailed to the cross, for the love he bare unto thee, being most constant in his sufferings for thee, loving thee thus ardently to the very end; and desiring of thee no other recompense, then love for love, and constancy and perseverance in thy love; not to fly from him for difficulties, for to fly he followed thee, leaving the ninety nine to wit, those glorious troops which adored him in heaven, & coming down here upon earth, labored to seek thee, desiring to gain thee, though it were through miseries, reproaches, and death itself, which constant love of his, fastened him to this Cross, and pierced his sacred hands, heart, and feet.
1. let thy first consideration fix itself  as the former, in conceiving the excessive pain thy dear Redeemer endured in the piercing of his sacred right foot, which consisted of so many joints; in the midst of which a …

Of The Five Wounds Of Our Blessed Saviour: The Side

TERBRUGGHEN, Hendrick  The Crucifixion with the Virgin and St John  1624-25
And now descending from the Mercy & Justice of our Saviuor, let us repose our selves in the seat of his divine Love; and beholding it as it is in heaven glorious, let us adore those streams of his ardent Love, which issued out of that sacred heart, the citizens of heaven exulting at the sight of so immense charity. Fluminis impetus laetificat civitatem dei, The violence of this river (sayeth the Prophet) maketh the city of God joyful, when those blessed Inhabitants beheld the violence and force of this bloody river, bringing into that haven of felicity new Colonies, to replenish the seats of fallen Angels; this being that river which issued out of the place of pleasure, to water paradise, as well that celestial Paradise, by replenishing it with daily increase of glory, as the terrestrial Paradise of the Church, by prospering and increasing his graces, the seeds of glory.
1.  First therefore let us behold thi…

Of The Five Wounds Of Our Blessed Saviour: The Left Hand

Image
JANNECK, Franz Christoph  Crucifixion  1730s

Adore with like affection the glorious left hand of thy Saviour, and contemplate upon those words of the spouse: his left hand under my head, and his right shall embrace me. Thou hast already beheld the embracing of the right hand; which was stretched forth upon the Cross, ready to embrace and entertain all sinners: this was clearly showed by calling the Thief out of sin, into grace and out of a world of torments into Paradise of joys. Now then consider the left hand.
1. First behold it as full of bloody streams as the right, and in every point as full of pain, & what comfort could the Espouse take in laying this bloody, and painful hand under her head? Perhaps she desired to have the impression of this bloody hand, left in her heart, to the end she might never forget it: strive to conserve fresh in thy memory this left hand of thy Saviour, by which his Justice is signified, and by the impression of it, remember that sacred blood which wa…

Of The Five Wounds Of Our Blessed Saviour: The Right Hand

GRÜNEWALD, Matthias  The Crucifixion (detail)  c. 1515

Let us contemplate upon those sacred hands of our Saviour pierced with sharp nails, & fastened to the cross, and first let us perform our devotion to the right hand.
1. Consider those words of the prophet His brightness shall be as the light, horns in hands, or (as the Hebrew version hath) splendor in his hands there is his strength hid.  Behold this sacred wound, & admiring the splendor and beauty thereof, desire ever to remain under the protection of the same.
2. Ponder with thy self what an admirable light proceedeth now from this sacred hand.  If the martyrs of Christ shall have their bodies glorified, and chiefly in those parts in which they suffered; how glorious shall this right Hand of thy Saviour be, whose sufferings were of infinite merit, and consequently whose glory must be infinite? Imagine the light of a thousand suns united together, to be very darkness in comparison of that infinite splendor, shinning in this …

Seven Hard Ways Of Jesus Christ Crucified & Seven Gifts Of The Holy Ghost To Combat The Seven Deadly Sins

Image
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: the spirit of wisdom, and of understanding, the spirit of counsel, and of fortitude, the spirit of knowledge, and of godliness. And he shall be filled with the spirit of the fear of the Lord. Is.11.2-3. Remember thou the seven hard ways, which thy Lord walked for thee in this his Passion, that he might stop up the seven ways of the seven deadly sins, which lead thee unto Hell, & might open the way to everlasting life, by the seven gifts of the holy Ghost.
For he went:
First, from the house where he supped, to the Garden.
Secondly from thence to Annas.
Thirdly to Caiphas his house.
Fourthly to Pilate.
Fifthly to Herod.
Sixthly again to Pilate.
Seventh to the Cross.
Do thou in all thy travails meditate upon these ways, and for the love of thy Lord run in the way of his Commandments.
Isaia names the gifts of the holy Ghost from the highest down, and in combination, so as to show at one and the same time their difference, interrelationship, or…

The Sixth Voyage, From Herod To Pilate. 
1. Pilate and Herod, being become friends, who were before enemies, Jesus was sent back again to the President in that white vesture, & was therefore with more liberty outrageously abused by the way, both of the officers, & others, & what through feebleness being not able to sustain himself, as also through the fierceness of his enemies was often trailed on the ground, as we may piously and with reason suppose.
2. Being returned to Pila…

MEDITATIONS ON THE PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST: For They Know Not What They Do ~ Fr. Francois Coster S.J.

Image
JACOPO del CASENTINO  Crucifixion  1340-45 For they know not what they do.
Consider first, that Christ, to whom all judgment is given, and whom his enemies had offended, did not take upon him the office of a Judge, or an accuser, but rather of a defender & patron. The Jews sought how to accuse him, and found nothing worthy of accusation in him. Our innocent Lord, that was offended, seeketh how to excuse the offense; and the malice of the offenee was such, that nothing could be alleadged for the extenuating thereof, but only ignorance. And yet this ignorance, being voluntary, could no more excuse the Jews, then him, who wittingly and willingly hideth his eyes, because he will not see him, whom he striketh, or killeth. If Christ then in the midst of his torments mitigate the sins of his torturers, will he not now before his Father excuse their sins, who call upon his name with faith devotion, and sorrow for their sins?
Consider secondly, that the Father answered not his Son by word; a…

LORENZO Monaco The Flight into Egypt 1405-10

Behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him. Who arose, and took the child and his mother by night, and retired into Egypt: and he was there until the death of Herod: That it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called my son. Mt.ii.
MOST BLESSED and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs, who didst stand generously beneath the cross, beholding the agony of thy dying Son; by the sword of sorrow which then pierced thy soul, by the sufferings of thy sorrowful life, by the unutterable joy which now more than repays thee for them; look down with a mother’s pity and tenderness, as I kneel before thee to compassionate thy sorrows, and to lay my petition with childlike confidence in thy wounded heart. I beg of thee, O …

Grand Chancellor Of The Knights of Malta Albrecht Boeselager To Continue The Matthew Festing Tradition Of Flooding Europe With MUSLIMS

Who starting flooding Europe with MUSLIMS?

Fat slob Festing

Grand Chancellor Of The Knights of Malta Albrecht Boeselager will follow in the footsteps of the fat slob Festing!

Q: One of the main priorities of the order that you outlined in your press conference in January was humanitarian work with migrants and refugees. Can you explain some of the initiatives the order is currently doing with migrants and refugees specifically?
Albrecht Boeselager: The order is very much involved in the care of migrants and refugees in different parts of the world, in countries from where they come, on their way and in countries where they wish to go to. So we are active in the countries surrounding Syria: Turkey, Iraq and Lebanon, to help refugees from Syria and also, if security allows, displaced people within Syria.
We are active in South Sudan, which is in a big crisis at the moment, and in other countries where there are migrants and refugees or problems of displacement of people. Often it’s inter…

"You're Gonna Die Up There" MARCH 2017: American Airlines Pilot William “Mike” Grubbs DIES After Flying Above 29,050ft In The Habitat Of Demons.

Image
Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

The darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day. They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go. The devils besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated,They besought Him that He would not expel them out of the country. St Thomas Aquinas

In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

The demons of the air together with the Antichrist will perform great wonders on earth and in the atmosphere, and men will become more and more perverted. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. …

MEDITATIONS ON THE PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST: Father Forgive Them. ~ Fr. Francois Coster S.J.

Image
ANGELICO, Fra  Crucifixion with the Virgin, John the Evangelist, and Mary Magdelene  1419-20
Father forgive them.
Pause upon every word. (Father) he doth not say Lord, which is a name of severity and justice, but Father, which is a name of mercy, and of the new Testament, given unto us in this place by the blood & merits of Christ: that even as he would be our Brother, so we should have all one father in Heaven. He saith therefore O Father, know me thy Son; the Father will deny nothing to his son: I came into the world to this end, that thou shouldest receive thine enemies for thy children. Hear me then praying for them. For even as the prayers of the Priest in the Church shall hereafter be very effectual, which shall conclude in my name in these words, through Christ our Lord: so I do now pray unto thy my Father, through me thy only begotten Son. Therefore as thou lovest me thy Son, so receive these my prayers. For I ascended this cross, & have suffered all these stripes that I…

Black Muslim Woman tries to run over several Capitol Hill Police officers Shots were fired this morning near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. U.S. Capitol Police responded to the area at Washington Ave and Independence Ave, which is located near the U.S. Botanic Garden and the Rayburn House office building. The suspect apparently struck a Capitol Police cruiser and then tried running over several officers who were on foot, according to Metro DC Police. At one point Capitol Police fired shots, but no one was hit. The suspect was apprehended at 3rd and Independence Ave, and has been taken into custody. No one was hit by the suspect's car, police said. The FBI said it would assist Capitol Police at the scene. There is no clear indication of a motive, or if this was an intentional act, according to the FBI. Later today police will hold a press conference at Bartholdi Park. ABC


MEDITATIONS ON THE PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST: The First Word Of Christ.

Image
BICCI DI LORENZO  Crucifixion
The 35. Meditation of the first word of Christ. But Jesus said, Consider first, what thy Lord in these great pains of the Cross did do, say or think, when as amongst all those torments he found no comfort, neither outwardly by men, nor inwardly in his own soul. If he moved his body, the wounds of the nails tormented him; if his head, the thorns ran in deeper and pricked him; if he stirred not at all, his torment was intolerable over his whole wearied body. Think thou upon these things in all thy labors and afflictions which thou sufferest for thy Lord. He reproved no man, although he were slandered divers ways. But because the mouth speaketh from the abundance of the heart, his words even upon the Cross were directed to thy profit and salvation, and do declare most manifestly, that he prayed to his Father incessantly for thee, when by reason of his torments he was not able to utter one word.
Consider secondly, his swan-like song, and note the last words of …

St. Simeon’s Prophecy

And after eight days were accomplished, that the child should be circumcised, his name was called JESUS, which was called by the angel, before he was conceived in the womb. And after the days of her purification, according to the law of Moses, were accomplished, they carried him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord: As it is written in the law of the Lord: Every male opening the womb shall be called holy to the Lord: And to offer a sacrifice, according as it is written in the law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons: And behold there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Ghost was in him. And he had received an answer from the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Christ of the Lord. And he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when his parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of t…
