Especially toward the Year of Consecrated Life in 2015, given that our Mystical Rose not only promises religious vocations but truly helps to sanctify them, no wonder that Mystical Rose’s religious are expanding. It is moving along in harmony with the H.S. inspiring Pope Francis to have such a Year for the Church in 2015. He may even know that She promised not only an abundance of religious vocations where she is honored, but a “SUPERABUNDANCE” of such, as in Honduras, too, where she has great though rather private honors.
Of course, all vocations are called to live out the evangelical counsels at whatever levels set by God for each – married, single, with or without special promises to chastity (Church allowed, and for possibly more charitable works) since God especially calls married people to procreate human life (though some married saints, even my patron of England, took promises of chastity – mainly Mary and Joseph though). With two great popes canonized just last month -- especially our outstandingly Marian Pope -- St. John Paul II can help continue our causes for holiness and for Mystical Rose’s Immaculate Hearted hopes for Her especially Marian-minded people to advance in the Consecrated Life: thanks so very much to the prayers, sacrifices, and penances too of lay supporters.
Have a great Year toward the one of Consecrated Life and with full confidence in our holy threesomes – our Triune God, the Holy Family, etc. – and in a special way in May of Joseph the Worker (May 1), St. Athanasius (May 2), and the Apostles Philip and James the Lesser (May 3). For our causes all the more, invoke for us the very patron saint of the Brescia Diocese wherein are Montichiari and Fontanelle – the martyr SAINT PANCRAS (May 12)! Thank you all!!!
Glory to the TRINITY, and via Maria ROSA MYSTICA!
Fr. Ed, Mexico, SOLT, but MRMS too in spirit!
Have a Blessed & Holy May month of Mary!
May Our Lady ever-flowering & overflowing with graces & blessings unfold in us The 3-Fold indwelling Divinity (of Her 3 'Roses') to ever spring, sing, & ring alive.
Amatissima semper esto Maria Rosa Mystica!
Most Beloved ever be Maria Rosa Mystica!
