54 Da Rosary Novena – Day 51

Day 51

We must constantly remind ourselves to keep our eyes fixed on the goal. In the midst of trials and difficulties, remember Our Lady’s promise – “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.” Our Lady promised that she will triumph. The question is, “Do you believe it?” Many people have lost hope. They feel abandoned by God, and by Our Lady. With all of the difficulties and confusion in the Church, and the immortality of the world, it is easy to loose hope. But, we have assurance from Our Lady. She promised that “in the end” she will triumph. What end? The end of the world?  The end of a period of time? Our Lady has made it clear that at the end of these times of darkness will come a great victory. It appears that Our Lady came to warn us about the great crisis our Church is facing today. Along with the turbulence in the world. We are no in the midst of a spiritual hurricane. The winds, and the waves are shooting across the bow, and Jesus is asleep in the stern. When He is awaken by our prayers, sacrifices and supplications, he will command the storm to “Be still!” The triumph will only come when we have reached the lowest point and all appears lost. There will only a handful of true believers. The churches will continue to empty. Funerals, Baptisms, and weddings will continue to decrease. There will be no human solution so that when He acts there will be no other explanation. Our Lord will send His Mother to bring about a great victory. It will come with the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. There will be a new pentecost like never experienced in the history of the Church. All of Christ’s wandering sheep will return to the flock, and “there will be one flock and one shepherd.” (Jn 10:16) And there will be a time of peace.
