Promises of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary
by Rita Davidson
On this Feast of the Most Sacred Heart, we want to dedicate our new website and all our work to the Sacred Heart. Under His patronage, we wish to place all our families and our work.
As day turns into night the world is rife with darkness. The growing darkness seems to be overtaking the world at dramatic speed. Traditional marriage is being attacked at every turn. Catholics are still suffering persecution in distant countries in more horrific ways than we could ever imagine. Fr. Francoise Murad is one such soul, beheaded recently, by Islamic radicals in the most brutal way ever witnessed and video taped, with you guessed it Iphones. If you are brave enough you can read his story here, and view the live footage as this took place. I warn you, the images are far worse than any movie violence you’ve ever seen.
But just as all hope seems lost, we must remember to place our fears at the foot of the Cross. We must go there to the cross and bring our children there with us. We must leave there all our fears and sorrows. When all seems lost and hopeless, it is then we must place all our existence on Him who gives us all.
When we realize that nothing happens without God’s will. Nothing happens to us, bad or good, without God’s permission. For even the sorrows and crosses we carry are good for us. So, if we trust our Savior to give us only the crosses we need and deserve, how can we worry about any crosses that are coming?
If we are faithful and close to our Lord, will He not take good care of us? For anyone who has suffered heavy crosses you know that when Our Lord sends a heavy cross, He sends the strength to carry it. For as long as the sun rises in the morning, there is hope that the darkness has not enveloped us yet. THERE is HOPE! We must BELIEVE this!
So for everyday that you want to run away and hide, place yourself beside the Sacred Heart. Give Him ALL your worries and ALL your fears and let Him carry them for you. Our God is a merciful God and He will not let us suffer more than we can bear.
Today, after four long months of work on this new website, I am honored to share it with you, today on the Feast of the Sacred Heart. It is fitting that we look again, at the promises of the Sacred Heart which apply to all of us. May they bring your family peace. Share these with friends and family that you know would be comforted by this.
