We often get readings that just seem spot on.
Last Thursday amazed all of us. We had been speaking whilst waiting for everyone to arrive about certain events. Firstly, we had received emails notifying us to pray for Maria as the Mission of Salvation is being attacked very severely.
Secondly, we observed that this was the day that the bishops’ conference was to begin and that Cardinal Bourke and Card. Brandmueller had sent all bishops a letter to ask them if they, too,would stay silent (about the ‘cover up’). We decided that these were worthy prayer intentions for that day (although we don’t usually set out to form such prayer intentions.)
Well, we began with our Prayer selection for the day : We were up to the “Salvation of Souls” Group B. We always work through the groups chronologically – this was no exception.
The Bible reading was surprising. Matthew 28: 1-11 speaks of a cover up. When the roman guards came to report on Jesus Resurrection, the elders persuaded them by means of bribery to tell a lie. We decided to read the next bit as well. Surprisingly, here Jesus commissions his disciples to go out “to all nations, baptizing them…”. We concluded that despite all the treachery and attempts to cover up the truth, the disciples still began their apostolic work – and 2000 years later, here we are. This made us joyful and gave us hope. The elders’ meeting reminded us about the bishops’ conference; and indeed it was all about a “cover up”. It all seemed just a little too close to home.
Next came the readings from the Book of Truth.
The first one was 27 Oct. 2014. It nearly blew me over. The first two lines mentioned “remember to recite my most Holy Rosary each day in order to protect this Mission,..” We had, just moments before we started praying, been saying that we must pray for Maria and dedicate our rosaries to praying for the Mission which was under threat. And it just happened to be that the prayers we were praying was Group A – our daily prayers, ROSARY and Chaplet; as well as Group B: “Salvation of Souls”. This is what ‘The Mission of Salvation’ (this Mission/our main mission) purpose is: the salvation of souls.
It didn’t end there. In the next reading from the Book of Truth, ( 3 July 2011), Our Lady asks for the “Rosary to be recited as often as possible to crush the evil which grips the world.” The reading also referred to“attacks on the Church that come from within” – just what the Bishops’ Conference is all about.
The Reading again urges us to pray – “time spent in My company, especially at Adoration, is essential if you are to keep on top of this Mission.”
This reading also refers to the salvation of souls: “many of My children will lose their souls to the antichrist…”
It ends with a plea – another reference to prayer and salvation – “Pray to save their souls if they won’t listen…”
Jesus promised us that He is present in every prayer group. The conversation before the prayer group began, the prayers and readings were all neatly woven together – as only a Master Weaver can do.
Let’s not ignore His pleas and those of our Bl. Mother of Salvation for lots of Prayer and Adoration in order to help them in this holy Mission to save souls.
“… follow My instructions.
… Focus on Me only.”
