John 19: 25-27
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Into thy hands I commend
Oh God, I give You myself —
everything — my days,
my nights, my heart —
Open up my heart —
We are sinners waiting for
His forgiveness and His grace —
Into Thy hands I commend my spirit.
Water is given to cleanse us.
Oh Lamb of God forgive our sins.
He must increase, I must decrease.
The wonders of the earth —
The gift given the Son of God comes
to save a fallen race —
Oh Mary help me to be more like Jesus —
Oh Mary help me to be as you were
faithful to His Word always.
One prayer — oh God let my prayer be a
prayer of love — love for God
and all men —
I wait and I wait, I wait for the Lord and His
time — to follow His Plan — to sit
still while the world has men who
decide and prod and plan, I wait for
A prophet is never accepted in His own
They called Jesus a blasphemer and
yet today they blaspheme Jesus —
I cry Lord of men to see their blindness —
I sing of Your Might —
My heart is a heart of hope —
I know the apostles and their lives —
I love the holy saints —
I know them —
Their lives are alive in my heart as
models of holiness serving the Lord —
I shriek not to follow the foolish
men of this world —
But my eyes are open —
My heart full with the love of the Lord —
I see and love His Word —
I follow His path —
I love His law —
Oh God — Father of our ancestors, have
mercy on us poor banished children
of Eve —
Open our hearts —
who wants this captivity —
free us of our wayward ways —
let us see Your Might in the mustard
Oh God — the devil prowls the earth as
one to attack Mary's little children.
The devil is a devil — indeed —
one who tempts —
one who wants to trap the poor
banished children of Eve —
God come fill our hearts —
let us live in You —
Let Your Word be written on our hearts —
We want it to live deeply in us.
Let us not be so focused on the things
of this earth — we become sterile.
Oh Jesus to gaze upon Your face is
my delight — let the world know
You — Your precious love for us.
In the busy day I hear the bird chirp and it
reminds me of Your love for us —
how attentive You are to our

Remember the Sermon on the Mount.
It is a time for rejoicing, for God has
visited His people —
We will be held accountable for our lives.
God gives to us a feast —
He feeds us with Himself —
His love He outpours —
Pray for grace to be as He desires.
Jesus is tender and loving to us.
We must go to Him — be wrapped
in His arms —
God forgives our sins —
God feeds us.
How precious is the holy name of Jesus.
He came to the earth and performed
He healed the sick —
Cured the paralyzed.
Do we not see He can heal us —
lead us into greater perfection
rooted in Him.
Jesus calls and many say — I have
too much to do — go away —
And they stumble around and have
no peace —
Peace is found in Him.
We see like in a fog.
Oh Jesus I know You —
Heaven is real —
I am not afraid —
I am Yours Lord —
I have asked you to endure this suffering
In the death there is the resurrection.
open up Your gates to me, Lord
let me see despite the road blocks —
Let me see
We are hidden behind blockages of our own
making — Let us come alive —
Jesus speaks: Go to confession —
Messenger: Oh God help us to be pure
Revelation 12: 7-12
And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael & with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming&because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.
John 1: 47-51
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There, truly, is an Israelite in whom there is no deception.’ Nathanael asked, ‘How do you know me?’ Jesus replied, ‘Before Philip came to call you, I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the king of Israel.’ Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You are going to see greater things than that.’ And then he added, ‘In all truth I tell you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending over the Son of man.’

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima
by Father Carter, S.J.
Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:
Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)
