We Need Divine Intervention to Save Our Church and Our Nation! May We Fulfill Our Lady of America's Requests for Greater Miracles Than Those Granted at Lourdes and Fatima!

We Need Divine Intervention!

Just as Our Lady of Guadalupe converted an entire country to God through a simple man's obedience of bringing roses to his bishop and the bishop believing...

Just as Our Lady of Lourdes' miraculous waters have cured thousands through a simple girl's humble obedience to look foolish as she dug and tried to drink the resulting muddy water ...

Just as 70,000 came to witness the miracle that Our Lady promised to take place -- coming in humble faith and trust  -- regardless of threats of violence, false reports propagated by evil men -- they walked for days -- most without shelter or food, drenched and cold in the midst of fierce rain and storms. Yet, they witnessed the sun dancing in the sky...

We now seek to follow Our Lady of America's directives to heal our land and obtain the miracles of grace she promised.  

In each of the interventions of Our Blessed Mother listed above, Mary asked for a shrine to be built in her honor. When she came as Our Lady of America in 1954, she rejoiced that a shrine was already being built as an act of love for her and her Son! Thus, all she asked was that her statue, as Our Lady of America, be processed by the Bishops of America into the Shrine and placed there in her honor.  
(This Shrine is now known as the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and is located in Washington, DC.)

She promised that if her statue was placed in the Shrine it would be a special safeguard for our nation. 
She also promised, when her request was fulfilled, that the Shrine would become a place of enormous grace, "a place of wonders", a place from which: 
"greater miracles than those granted at Lourdes and Fatima would be granted here in America, the United Stares in particular, if we would do as She desires."
I promise to reward their love by working through the power of my Son’s Heart and my Immaculate Heart miracles of grace among them. I do not promise miracles of the body, but of the soul.” 
In this time of unequaled sin and corruption in both our nation and in our Church, our only hope is Divine Intervention! 
Now is the time for Our Blessed Mother's request to be fulfilled.  

Our own plans, agendas, timelines must hold sway to the plans of God. 
No matter if they make little sense to us or seem ridiculously inadequate or untimely - 
We are called upon to simply believe and obey them.
"For the ways of God are not the ways of men."

If we do as Our Lady requests, perhaps we will see the wonder:
of millions of conversions like that of Mexico, 
or thousands of healings like that of Lourdes, 
or extraordinary signs and wonders that led tens of thousands to faith like that in Fatima... 

Or, instead, we will see far greater miracles than these -- for that is what she promised. 

On the other hand, if we do not obey her requests, she warned us: 

"My dear children, either you will do as I desire and reform your lives, or God Himself will need to cleanse you in the fires of untold punishment. 
...Oh, if you knew the punishments I am holding back from you by my pleading and intercession on your behalf!

"Will you do as I wish at last, my children?''

I come again to warn and to plead. Oh, penance, penance! How little my children understand it! They give me many words, but sacrifice themselves they will not. It is not me they love but themselves. Oh, what blindness, sweet child, what blindness! How it pierces my heart!
“See, I weep, but my children show me no compassion. They behold the sword in my heart but will make no move to withdraw it. I give them love; they give me only ingratitude.

“Weep, then, dear child, weep with your Mother over the sins of men. Intercede with me before the throne of mercy, for sin is overwhelming the world and punishment is not far away.”

“My Immaculate Heart will win in the end, and the Spirit of Christ will dwell in the hearts of men. Those in whom this Spirit is not found will be condemned to eternal hell-fire."

Our Lady's messages have been given especially to our country "for such a time as this". Our only proper response, therefore, is to heed them. 

One way of doing so is to ask our bishops to fulfill Our Blessed Mother's request to have her statue and the Eucharist (the two pillars  that would save our Church according to the dream of St. John Boscoprocessed into and honored in the National Shrine.

What a tangible witness to the faithful and the world that the Bishops are united in their desire for reform, penance and mortification that are an essential part of Our Lady's messages!

What a powerful sign, also, of their humility, obedience and prayerful confidence in Mary’s intercession, as they join her in praying for purity in our nation and in the Church! 

To ask our Bishops to fulfill our Lady's request,  pray and share this open letter with them. 

Lastly, as we petition, pray and wait for our Bishops' response -- may we, too, choose to live Our Mother's call by reforming our lives through purity, penance and sacrifice, praying:
“By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us from evil.”

Cardinal Burke affirmed the Church's approval of Our Lady of America in a letter written to the U.S. Catholic Bishops in 2007, in which he stated: 
"... the devotion was both approved by Archbishop Leibold and, what is more, was actively promoted by him. In addition, over the years, other Bishops have approved the devotion and have participated in public devotion to the Mother of God, under the title of Our Lady of America."

"In you, Jesus, my only Lord, I place all my trust." - A Second Letter Written by Archbishop Vigano Calling for Pope Francis to Respond

LifeSiteNews offered the official English translation, republished in full below.

Tit. Archbishop of Ulpiana
Apostolic Nuncio
Scio Cui credidi
(2 Tim 1:12)
Before starting my writing, I would first of all like to give thanks and glory to God the Father for every situation and trial that He has prepared and will prepare for me during my life. As a priest and bishop of the holy Church, spouse of Christ, I am called like every baptized person to bear witness to the truth. By the gift of the Spirit who sustains me with joy on the path that I am called to travel, I intend to do so until the end of my days. Our only Lord has addressed also to me the invitation, “Follow me!”, and I intend to follow him with the help of his grace until the end of my days.
"As long as I have life, I will sing to the Lord,
I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
May my song be pleasing to him;
For I rejoice in the Lord."
(Psalm 103:33-34)
It has been a month since I offered my testimony, solely for the good of the Church, regarding what occurred at the audience with Pope Francis on June 23, 2013 and regarding certain matters I was given to know in the assignments entrusted to me at the Secretariat of State and in Washington, in relation to those who bear responsibility for covering up the crimes committed by the former archbishop of that capital.
My decision to reveal those grave facts was for me the most painful and serious decision that I have ever made in my life. I made it after long reflection and prayer, during months of profound suffering and anguish, during a crescendo of continual news of terrible events, with thousands of innocent victims destroyed and the vocations and lives of young priests and religious disturbed. The silence of the pastors who could have provided a remedy and prevented new victims became increasingly indefensible, a devastating crime for the Church. Well aware of the enormous consequences that my testimony could have, because what I was about to reveal involved the successor of Peter himself, I nonetheless chose to speak in order to protect the Church, and I declare with a clear conscience before God that my testimony is true. Christ died for the Church, and Peter, Servus servorum Dei, is the first one called to serve the spouse of Christ.
I declare with a clear conscience before God that my testimony is true. Tweet
Certainly, some of the facts that I was to reveal were covered by the pontifical secret that I had promised to observe and that I had faithfully observed from the beginning of my service to the Holy See. But the purpose of any secret, including the pontifical secret, is to protect the Church from her enemies, not to cover up and become complicit in crimes committed by some of her members. I was a witness, not by my choice, of shocking facts and, as the Catechism of the Catholic Church states (par. 2491), the seal of secrecy is not binding when very grave harm can be avoided only by divulging the truth. Only the seal of confession could have justified my silence.
Neither the pope, nor any of the cardinals in Rome have denied the facts I asserted in my testimony. "Qui tacet consentit" surely applies here, for if they deny my testimony, they have only to say so, and provide documentation to support that denial. How can one avoid concluding that the reason they do not provide the documentation is that they know it confirms my testimony?
The center of my testimony was that since at least June 23, 2013, the pope knew from me how perverse and evil McCarrick was in his intentions and actions, and instead of taking the measures that every good pastor would have taken, the pope made McCarrick one of his principal agents in governing the Church, in regard to the United States, the Curia, and even China, as we are seeing these days with great concern and anxiety for that martyr Church.
Now, the pope’s reply to my testimony was: "I will not say a word!" But then, contradicting himself, he has compared his silence to that of Jesus in Nazareth and before Pilate, and compared me to the great accuser, Satan, who sows scandal and division in the Church — though without ever uttering my name. If he had said: "Viganò lied," he would have challenged my credibility while trying to affirm his own. In so doing he would have intensified the demand of the people of God and the world for the documentation needed to determine who has told the truth. Instead, he put in place a subtle slander against me — slander being an offense he has often compared to the gravity of murder. Indeed, he did it repeatedly, in the context of the celebration of the most Holy Sacrament, the Eucharist, where he runs no risk of being challenged by journalists. When he did speak to journalists, he asked them to exercise their professional maturity and draw their own conclusions. But how can journalists discover and know the truth if those directly involved with a matter refuse to answer any questions or to release any documents? The pope's unwillingness to respond to my charges and his deafness to the appeals by the faithful for accountability are hardly consistent with his calls for transparency and bridge building.
Moreover, the pope’s cover-up of McCarrick was clearly not an isolated mistake. Many more instances have recently been documented in the press, showing that Pope Francis has defended homosexual clergy who committed serious sexual abuses against minors or adults. These include his role in the case of Fr. Julio Grassi in Buenos Aires, his reinstatement of Fr. Mauro Inzoli after Pope Benedict had removed him from ministry (until he went to prison, at which point Pope Francis laicized him), and his halting of the investigation of sex abuse allegations against Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor.
In the meantime, a delegation of the USCCB, headed by its president Cardinal DiNardo, went to Rome asking for a Vatican investigation into McCarrick. Cardinal DiNardo and the other prelates should tell the Church in America and in the world: did the pope refuse to carry out a Vatican investigation into McCarrick's crimes and of those responsible for covering them up? The faithful deserve to know.
Did the pope refuse to carry out a Vatican investigation into McCarrick's crimes and of those responsible for covering them up? Tweet
I would like to make a special appeal to Cardinal Ouellet, because as nuncio I always worked in great harmony with him, and I have always had great esteem and affection towards him. He will remember when, at the end of my mission in Washington, he received me at his apartment in Rome in the evening for a long conversation. At the beginning of Pope Francis' pontificate, he had maintained his dignity, as he had shown with courage when he was Archbishop of Québec. Later, however, when his work as prefect of the Congregation for Bishops was being undermined because recommendations for episcopal appointments were being passed directly to Pope Francis by two homosexual "friends" of his dicastery, bypassing the Cardinal, he gave up. His long article in L’Osservatore Romano, in which he came out in favor of the more controversial aspects of Amoris Laetitia, represents his surrender. Your Eminence, before I left for Washington, you were the one who told me of Pope Benedict's sanctions on McCarrick. You have at your complete disposal key documents incriminating McCarrick and many in the curia for their cover-ups. Your Eminence, I urge you to bear witness to the truth.
Finally, I wish to encourage you, dear faithful, my brothers and sisters in Christ: never be despondent! Make your own the act of faith and complete confidence in Christ Jesus, our Savior, of Saint Paul in his second Letter to Timothy, Scio cui credidi, which I choose as my episcopal motto. This is a time of repentance, of conversion, of prayers, of grace, to prepare the Church, the bride of the Lamb, ready to fight and win with Mary the battle against the old dragon.
Scio Cui credidi” (2 Tim 1:12)
In you, Jesus, my only Lord, I place all my trust.
“Diligentibus Deum omnia cooperantur in bonum” (Rom 8:28)
To commemorate my episcopal ordination on April 26, 1992, conferred on me by St. John Paul II, I chose this image taken from a mosaic of the Basilica of St. Mark in Venice. It represents the miracle of the calming of the storm. I was struck by the fact that in the boat of Peter, tossed by the water, the figure of Jesus is portrayed twice. Jesus is sound asleep in the bow, while Peter tries to wake him up: "Master, do you not care that we are about to die?” Meanwhile the apostles, terrified, look each in a different direction and do not realize that Jesus is standing behind them, blessing them and assuredly in command of the boat: "He awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, 'Quiet! Be still,' … then he said to them, 'Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?'" (Mk 4:38–40).
The scene is very timely in portraying the tremendous storm the Church is passing through in this moment, but with a substantial difference: the successor of Peter not only fails to see the Lord in full control of the boat, it seems he does not even intend to awaken Jesus asleep in the bow.
Has Christ perhaps become invisible to his vicar? Perhaps is he being tempted to try to act as a substitute of our only Master and Lord?
The Lord is in full control of the boat!
May Christ, the Truth, always be the light on our way!

"Write these instructions for the sanctification of My people" - Jesus in Our Lady of America Messages Part III

This is part III in the series on the approved apparitions of Our Lady of America. 
Supernatural appearances of Jesus and Mary are an integral part of our Church's history. 
In times of great need, heaven comes to us. 
Reminding us of their love. 
Demonstrating they are with us still. 
Renewing our faith, challenging us and equipping us with God's grace and Our Blessed Mother's prayers. 
Jesus is not a remote and far off God unconcerned by the loss of our souls and the evil that threatens us.
Instead, Heaven reaches down to earth again and again echoing His Word throughout all time:

"Repent and believe in the Gospel. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" 
Just as Jesus came to St. Margaret Mary and St. Faustina, He came also to America. Jesus' words prepare us to receive our Blessed Mother particular warnings, messages and calls for all who live in the United States of America.

These words begin Sister Mildred Neuzil's diary: 


"Our Lord often spoke to me in the past, and already in the early 1940's it was made known to me interiorly that my mission was to converge towards the sanctification of the family. I was not further enlightened at that time as to how this was to be accomplished.
In the year 1954, however, Our Lord addressed the following words to me. As they coincided in every way with Our Lady's message concerning the spiritual renewal of souls, I have placed them at the beginning of this manuscript. 

Our Lord’s words, May 22, 1954:

"My little white dove, if the world is dying, it is because it will not let Me give it life.

"I am the resurrection and the life, and unless souls seek their life in Me, they will find only death and destruction.
"They fear man-made destroyers of life, yet destruction is in themselves. Man destroys himself through the evil that is in himself.
"Implements of war kill only that which is without. Man kills that within himself which none but he can kill.
"God is light, man is darkness, and unless he comes into the light, he will be forever darkness.
"The Voice of My Heart is the Voice of Mercy. If man will not listen, there is no more I can do, for he ties My hands."

May 29, 1954:

“My Heart beats with compassion for the sorrows of man. Oh, how gladly would I help him bear the weight of his terrible cross, fashioned, for the most part, by his own guilt! But alas, he will have none of My help. So I am forced to stand by the side of the road and watch him struggle hopelessly in his agony.

"O man, what have I done to you that you should refuse My aid?

My little white dove, do you know what I find most lacking in the world today? It is FAITH. There are so few souls that believe in Me and My love. They profess their belief and their love, but they do not live this belief. Their hearts are cold, for without faith there can be no love.

“Pray and sacrifice yourself, My child, that faith may once again find entrance into the hearts of men.”

July 11, 1954:

"My daughter, I am not loved in the homes of men. And because I am not loved, the Divine Trinity refuses to dwell therein.

"Children are not taught to love Me, because those who have charge over them have no time or patience to do so.
"My Heart grieves over My children in the world. Their hearts are being drawn farther and farther away from Me. They will not even listen to My Mother, because they have never been taught to listen.

“I am a Beggar for love, but how few give to Me the means by which to satisfy My divine hunger. I hunger for the love of My own, and I receive only the crumbs no other would accept.

"My Father is angry. If My children will not listen to My Heart, which is a Voice of mercy and instruction, punishment will come swiftly and none shall be able to stay it. The pleadings of My Heart have held back the divine justice about to descend on an ungrateful and sinful generation.

“Woe to parents who set a bad example to their children! Terrible will be their judgment. I will demand a strict account of every soul entrusted to their care.

“Woe to parents who teach their children how to gain materially in this world and neglect to prepare them for the next!
"Woe to children who disobey and show disrespect towards their parents!
"’Honor thy father and thy mother.’ On this shall they be judged most severely."

July 12, 13, 14, 1954:

"Blessed are the homes that honor My Name and the Name of My Father. "Blessed are the homes where I am loved, for there the Holy Trinity dwells.

“Blessed are the parents and children who have made a home for God in their hearts.

"Little secretary of My Heart, write these instructions for the sanctification of My people.

“My Father’s house is a house of prayer, and you have made it a den of thieves.

"My children, every home and every soul is My Father's house, for He made them and they are His. But many of them are no longer sanctified by His Presence. Thieves have entered in and stolen from Him His temples of prayer. It is you, My children, who have let them in. If, My children, you will cleanse your temples, My Father will return and We will come and make our abode with you.

"Return, My people, for My Heart hungers and thirsts for your love. If you will not return, the just anger of My Father will descend upon you. What would you--My love or My Father's anger? Choose, and as you choose, so shall it be done. I will not force your free will, for that is yours to use as you desire."  [Emphasis mine]

Each word of Jesus' is profound... 

Each word pierces the heart
as He foretells of the destruction of the family 
and His Father's House a den of thieves. 
As He calls us to choose.

I only emphasized certain words to help bring out the great love, the great pain and  the great calling Jesus has for us to return to Him and His love.

"For such a time as this"... knowing full well the extent impurity would destroy our souls and our nation from within, 

Jesus and Mary came to warn and save us 
to inspire us to pray and sanctify our families 
to spiritually renew our souls 
--for we are meant for so much more than these tragic realities that they hoped to save us from: 

The Sexual Revolution
Roe v. Wade
(mult-billion dollar business worldwide)
Destruction of Marriage 
Break down of the Family
Fatherless homes 
Motherless homes - forced or choosing to work
Radical Militant Feminism
Godless homes - media and cultural taught children
God's Children Losing their Identity
Homosexuality and the Militant Homosexual Agenda 
Gay Marriage
Gender Fluidity that is attacking even the youngest child
(mult-billion dollar business worldwide)
Human sex trafficking - including child sex trafficking 
(mult-billion dollar business worldwide)

(I love that God gives supernatural wisdom and Truth to His Holy Catholic Church, evidenced in the fact that these tragic consequences were prophesied by Pope Paul VI in Humanae Vitae 50 years ago in 1968). 

While sin demeans and diminishes us, Jesus' love and Truth fulfills and transforms us: 
"It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal." -Pope St. John Paul II

So I ask, please join me in praying and meditating on these words of Jesus. Read them again and again until they penetrate our souls and stir within us the desire to become living reflections of His Love and Truth shining in the darkness of our nation -- so tormented by the evil that seeks to destroy it. 

Our Lady of America pray for us. 
"By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, Deliver Us from Evil.” 
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
