July is her main month for her main Feast of the Mystical Rose. When? July 13th.
This is 2013, too, and so much has been in progress over the years for her. Not only has the Church tried to move her forward, but the Church is slowly succeeding at such, and mystical phenomena with Mystical Rose is so global and amazing. Why? Because as one holy founder said, “Mary is true to her titles.” So, if her title is Queen of Angels, then you’ll get angels manifesting themselves in some form as She may wish before the Trinity. If it is Our Lady of Lourdes, then you’ll get many miraculous healings due to those messages and histories there too. If you have Our Lady of Good Counsel, then you’ll get the right spiritual direction. When it is Mystical Rose, then not only is mystical phenomena often abounding, but especially the mystical ladder to Heaven and with mystical help… If a mystical scent of roses abounds, it is often for better rosary prayer life. Amen, amen, just a few days ago at the burial of Fr. Jean Hart, SOLT, so many smelled the roses and women there attested to having no perfume, and the wind was strong, too – though 87, he prayed the rosary so much and late at night, too). Other mystical phenomena very famous globally are the ‘grace glitters,’ and in harmony with a need. These “escarchas” (Spanish) from our Mystical Rose (her statues or by association with her) especially invite us of her family to mystical unity with God along the hard roads of life when no mystical phenomena or signs or perceptions of favor are around as they may have been before in life’s journeys.
Now, how The Blood and Love flow so much together! Even the Divine Mercy Jesus has a red ray for that richest of the two fluids – pearly white for the water, but scarlet red for His incomparably royal Blood – from the King of kings, yet the most mistreated of all mankind, and voluntarily allowing it all!!!
1 Cor 12:31 “Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way.” In this Year of ’13 St. Paul then breaks ground on that more excellent way per which chapter? Thirteen! 1 Cor 13 is the famous ‘Love Chapter.’ In this ’13 Year we rejoice over Pope Francis as a Church Father of love, charity, generosity, etc. Love is opening doors too, now, for our Mystical Rose. One is that Brother Sobichen informed many that Venezuela already has permission from the local bishop for a Mystical Rose Society of priests. We already have a Mystical Rose Society of Sisters in Brazil, and of course the Lay Association in the Brescia Diocese where Mary appeared. Now in Panama there’s a Missionary Society of the Mystical Rose that during the World Congress of this October may see the formation of different Societies into one whole family, helping fulfill the Vatican II request for seeing how love for one another can transcend vocational lines to greater spiritual unity. Even our SOLTs have this spirituality of ‘ecclesial family teams’ that are bonded by ‘graced friendships.’ It would be great to see Mystical Rose members in groups of spiritual friendships full of grace, mercy, and love: for threesomes are very characteristic of our Mystical Rose’s expressions. Indeed, her messages through Pierina Gilli emphasize much of all three: grace, mercy, and love. Please pray for our chaplet called Emmanuel, the Chaplet of Grace, Mercy, and Love, which has an Archbishop reviewing it for imprimatur.
This Month of the Mystical Rose and the Most Precious Blood of Jesus go very much with her middle rose of red positioned across her chest, and representing SACRIFICE: in a particular way His Scarlet Blood from His Body. Of course, the greatest SACRIFICE that we can receive daily is that of Christ in the Mass, and receiving His Host includes the very entirety of His Person, His Body, His Blood, Soul and Divinity… all by St. Thomas Aquinas’ explanation of ‘concomitance.’ [This was of a recent theme in our messages per month to try to help with the ‘great apostasy’ prophesied Biblically of the last times.]
One St. Aleydis, also known as St. Alice, St. Alix, or St. Alyssa, learned “that hygiene forbade her to receive from the chalice (still a general practice, in that time) when she went to Holy Communion. Our Lord himself, we are told, consoled her by stating that one who communicated in the consecrated bread alone still received the blood as well as the body of Jesus, for ‘Where there is part, there also is the whole.’” http://tinyurl.com/ou57dkd Of St. Alice, we know the following: Country: Belgium Date of Birth: 1204 Date of Death: June 11, 1250 Feast Day: June 15 Here’s another source with photo of her holy card: http://saintsandangels.wordpress.com/
Beloved Rosa Mystica friends: marvel over this marvel: July being the majormost month of Mary, Mystical Rose (who asked for prayers every month up to the 13th, but for her feast to be July 13) begins with this amazing celebration: the memorial of Blessed Junipero Serra, whose statue is very large and near Our Lady of Guadalupe (a kind of "Mystical Rose") at Tepeyac in Mexico City.
As Mary, Mystical Rose, is the Patroness for religious vocations (especially to the priesthood), behold how her month begins with the very patron of such! Blessed be God and Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy and also as Our Lady of Divine Providence (Patroness of Puerto Rico, with a special liturgical date per St. Charles Borromeo). Praised be God how Mary brings together her Mystical Rose month and vocations per this Guadalupan (in ways) Blessed.Junipero. Happy celebration (optional -- see Church norms below) annually in his honor to launch each Mystical Rose July month par excellence, and let us pray for religious vocations especially on (t)his day... & especially in this '13 Year of the Faith!
Bl. Junipero Serra Feastday: July 1 Patron of Vocations
1713 - 1784 Beatified By: Pope John Paul II
Miguel Jose Serra was born on the island of Majorca on November 24, 1713, and took the name of Junipero when in 1730, he entered the Franciscan Order. Ordained in 1737, he taught philosophy and theology at the University of Padua until 1749. At the age of thirty-seven, he landed in Mexico City on January 1, 1750, and spent the rest of his life working for the conversionof the peoples of the New World. In 1768, Father Serra took over the missions of the Jesuits (who had been wrongly expelled by the government)in the Mexican province of Lower California and Upper California (modern day California). An indefatigable worker, Serra was in large part responsible for the foundation and spread of the Church on the West Coast of the United States when it was still mission territory.
As for the norms on celebrating him, here's one USA source for this year's calendar of 2013, and the Blessed Junipero is yearly in it now [my own Mass will be in white]:
