“I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.                “You shall have no other gods before me.                “You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.                “You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.                “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. You shall labor six days, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh your God. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates; for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.                “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your God gives you.                “You shall not murder.                “You shall not commit adultery.                “You shall not steal.                “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.                “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Escaping the Greatest Evil

Love One Another!

Appearing at Guadalupe, Lourdes, Fatima and other places throughout the world, the Virgin Mary tells us that loss of faith, atheism, moral indifference, and living as if God did not exist represent man’s greatest tragedy.

Wherever it occurs, widespread rejection of Christ and His Gospel inevitably brings with it the rise of criminal totalitarian regimes, genocide, the decline of culture and freedom, and the moral degeneration of societies — in a word, it unleashes hell on earth. The most effective way of avoiding the tragedy of loss of faith and eternal life lies in consecrating ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Venerable John Paul II explained: “The consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary means a return to the cross of her Son. It means consecrating the world to the pierced Heart of the Savior, bringing it back to the source of redemption. Christ’s redemption is always greater than man’s sin and the ‘sin of the world.’ The power of His redemption is infinitely greater than all the evil in man and the world. Consecrating ourselves to Mary means accepting her help in offering ourselves and all of humanity to our One Savior Jesus Christ.”

Our Blessed Mother leads us most surely in the way of faith and boundless trust in her Son, Jesus Christ, thus enabling Him to free us from enslavement to sin by the power of his infinite mercy. “I desire trust from my creatures,” said Jesus to St. Faustina. “Let the weak and sinful soul not fear to approach me….Mankind will not know peace until it turns to the source of my mercy” (Diary, 1059; 699).

Three times Our Lady told Sister Lucy of Fatima: “We are approaching the final days.” In view of this, our best recourse is to consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart and pray the rosary.

Mary laments that in view of humanity’s failure to accept the means of salvation offered to it so far, she now offers her own tears. The phenomenon, so widespread in recent years, of Our Lady’s images and statues shedding tears of blood is another in a series of warnings and signs calling humanity to come to its senses and return to God. Jesus tells Sister Faustina: “Before the day of justice comes, I grant mankind a time of mercy.” Can we be so insensitive and indifferent to the cautions and pleas of Our Blessed Mother?

Dear readers! Our Blessed Mother entreats each and every one of us to undertake the task of saving ourselves, our loved ones, our country, and the world. We know that only the love of Christ can relieve the menace of our sins and of the evil that weighs upon us and the entire human race. But Christ needs our consent, that He may act in us and through us in reaching the greatest sinners with His love. Let us entrust ourselves each day to the Immaculate Heart of Mary; allow her to teach us to live by faith every day. To do this, we need to order our lives and our daily routine, allocating sufficient time for prayer, work, rest, and recreation. Above all, we need to:

Despise and reject all sin and live our lives in accordance with the moral norms and teachings of the Catholic Church.

Resolve not to give in to discouragement and to pick ourselves up each time we fall into serious sin by availing ourselves of the sacrament of penance without delay.

Resolve to pray every day, especially the rosary and the chaplet of divine mercy, and to meditate on Holy Scripture. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is also strongly recommended.

Resolve to observe the first Fridays and Saturdays of the month, offering them up to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in reparation for our sins and those of the whole world.

Resolve to make a monthly confession and to receive Jesus as often as possible in the Eucharist; also, when possible to observe a fast of bread and water on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Act of Consecration
to the Immaculate Heart
of Mary

Immaculate Mother of Jesus and my own Mother — Mary! Taking Servant of God John Paul II as my example, I say to you today, “Totus Tuus/Tota tua!” — I am all yours! To your Immaculate Heart I entrust my whole self, all that I am: my mind, my heart, my will, my body, my senses, my emotions, my memory, my hurts, my weaknesses, my past from the moment of conception, my present, and my future along with my bodily death, every step I take, my every thought, word, and deed. To your Immaculate Heart I also entrust my family and all that I own. To you I offer all my prayers, works, and sufferings. O Best of Mothers! Protect me and my loved ones from the Evil One. Entreat for us all the graces necessary for our transformation and healing. Guide us along the path of life and make use of us for the building up of the Kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ — the one Savior of the world, from whom all good things, truth, and life come. Amen.
