Feast of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces
(Traditional Carmelite Calendar)
When the Eternal Word was made flesh in the womb of the Immaculate Virgin, the very Source and Fount of all graces placed Himself at the disposal of this Most Blessed Mother so that Holy Church applies to Her the passage spoken by the Prophet Isaias in today’s Office: All you that thirst, come to the waters: and you that have no money make haste, buy, and eat: come ye, buy wine and milk without money, and without any price. Why do you spend money for that which is not Bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy you? Hearken diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and your soul shall be delighted in fatness. Incline your ear and come to me: hear and your soul shall live… (55.1-2,3).
In suppressing today’s blessed Feast, the ” New ‘Catholic’ disorder” of the ‘official’ mainstream institutionalist ‘Church’ has done two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of Living Water [cf., our post “The Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II Catholicism“], and have digged to themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (Jer. 2.13) – they have impiously spurned the main cistern : cf., our post, “The Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary Sacrificed to the Protestants in the name of Vatican II ‘Ecumenism’“.
Our hope, our confidence in God can never be excessive or exaggerated, because it is founded on God’s mercy which has no limits for those who sincerely try to do everything they can to please Him. His helpful power and His desire for our eternal good, for our sanctification, infinitely exceed our most ardent hopes through the strength of Him Who Is Omnipotent, through the infinite mercy of Him Who loves to bend over souls who knows how to confess and do penance for their sins and acknowledge their miserable frailty, Who loves, as our Blessed Mother said, to exalt the humble and to fill the hungry with good things (cf., Lk. 1.52,53). God’s mercy is waiting to come to us, to purify, heal, sanctify and perfect us, but it will not come until we open the doors of our heart by complete confidence in His Divine Providence, delivering and calling us… not according to our works but according to His own purpose and grace… given us in Christ Jesus (2 Tim.1.8,9) Who was given to us except through the Immaculata (by Rev. Friar John Marie-Therese of the Holy Eucharist, C.D.).
A most blessed Feast to everyone!
