214- ‘Constant Procession’ Part 14

Green Arrow = Play Podcast

My 14th installment-

From Time Magazine’s  pronouncement in 1966 that ‘God is Dead’ to riots across the USA over the Viet Nam War, this assertion by the powers that be about the status of God gives a reminder about the world in the 1960’s.

A remembrance that indeed it was a time of great social upheaval. Three years before, in 1963, John F. Kennedy the sitting American President was assassinated. Three days later the assassination of his alleged killer was witnessed live on TV by millions.

And their prediction about God was reinforced just one year later by the 1967 “Six Day War” between the countries of Israel and Egypt. This traditional all out war between these surrogate countries of the USSR (Egypt) and USA (Israel) shattered notions of the possibilities of a peaceful world.

Collectively these actions of violence became high water marks of an epoch that shook the foundations of Western society to its core. In counter-point to all these actions of man, new reports about apparitions of the Virgin Mary and her messages to humanity surfaced once again.

In Chapter 25 entitled “Apparition for All,” a series of nightly appearances by the Virgin Mary took place high atop a Christian church in Egypt between the years 1968 through 1971.

During this four-year period well over one-quarter of a million people from many different religious and non-religious backgrounds witnessed her there. The president of the country spoke of these appearances, which were also witnessed by non-Christians

In Chapter 26 entitled “Keepers of the Light” a new Pope, John Paul II makes a landmark return to the country of his birth. This trip encourages the desires of the Polish people in their early efforts to retake control of their country from the repressive post-war Communist regime.

Also during the time period a secret memorandum by the USSR secret police is sent to teachers across the Soviet Union to warn that the Pope is their enemy.

Meanwhile in the USA, the new president is a man who makes no bones about his belief in God and to the horror of the established Washington, DC elite, he takes a decidedly different tack from the mainstream’s established way of doing things.  

These two world leaders efforts for change spawned dramatic changes for the Soviet Communists’ hold on Eastern Europe as well as it’s own internal politics.

Rewards for these leaders efforts were the same, each suffer assassination attempts on their lives. The second secret of the Fatima apparition comes true for Pope John Paul II. However, he believes it was the Virgin Mary who saved him from death.

Meanwhile, as both men recover from their wounds, in a remote part of the Eastern Bloc, dramatic eye witness accounts of a new appearance of the Virgin Mary occur to several teenagers as they are returning home after sneaking off to smoke cigarettes.

Three thousand people return to the place three days later and so begin the on-going accounts of apparitions of the Virgin Mary at Medjugorje.

This is the 13th installment from my book Constant Procession

Though the Great Return brought relief in helping France keep from the Communist fold, Eastern Block countries were less fortunate. The Soviet’s robbed them of their freedoms and religious liberties and so the roots of the Cold War evolved.

The Spiritual Rosary Pilgrimage

The allied victors quickly became enemies. Concerns by the victors as to how to rebuild the defeated countries from both physical destruction and governing approaches quickly shifted to diverging philosophical ways to replace the Nazi Parties political control of the lands it had conquered in Europe.

In Chapter 22 entitled “Unheeded Prayers” the remaining Fatima Seer; Sister Lucia, brings forward to the Pope requests made to her by the Virgin Mary during the apparition she experienced in Portugal in 1917.

Recalling what the Madonna told Sister Lucia: “If you pay heed to my requests, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, Russia will spread her errors through the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. Many will suffer martyrdom, and the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and several nations will disappear.” 

Unfortunately no actions were taken to honor this prayer request and the prediction for peace lost an opportunity. The consequence found the dominance of Stalin and his Communists Party becoming the new power on the ground in Europe.

These armed victors moved quickly into the political vacuum across the war torn lands.  Their efforts gained ground, especially in Eastern Europe as they aggressively encouraging civil wars and then help position puppet governments under the shadow of Communist influence.

Before long fear and intimidation overcame peaceful transitions and the liberties found in more open societies.

Chapter 23, A Society Without God reflects on the environment in the sphere of Soviet influence for people living in a world without social liberty and when Bibles were banished.  The experience of a 7th day Adventist reveals the level of suppression people of faith had to endure in those times.

Chapter 24- Hot Pursuit in a Cold War brings out how with increasing confidence, the Communists took religion down. And with huge armies still deployed in Europe and the newly aquired power of atomic weapons, the victors squared off using new battle techniques.

The “Great Return” found fierce resistance in France as the communists gained control of the political machine. In Hungary however, the procession yielded fruit, until it too was run aground.

TRANSCRIPT OF THIS PODCAST:

Hi this is Nikos Steves with a special report.

The Re-consecration of the United States of America to the Virgin Mary is yielding fruit as the summer comes to an end. This brief update is to highlight things you won’t want to miss. And please tell a friend!

First up is to remind you of the new movie premiering August 28 in theatres and, wait for it, YES ON DEMAND. The Feature film with actor Harvey Keitel is about the Fatima apparitions of the Virgin Mary.

It’s been endorsed by the shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima as well.

Here’s a brief summary of the movie from the official Fatima the Movie website: “Fatima is an uplifting drama based on historical events, a 10-year-old shepherd and her two younger cousins in Fátima, Portugal, report visions of the Virgin Mary, inspiring thousands of believers and angering officials in the secularist government, who try to force them to recant their story.”

Next up is an update on the M de Marie, or M for the Virgin Mary pilgrimage:

This journey is a procession across France tracing the letter M for the Madonna by two horse drawn wagons with matching statues of the Virgin Mary known as Our Lady of France has processed away from Paris. It is heading to Orleans for events over the last week of the month. I’ve linked to a great interactive map that will guide you to the remaining location as they travel through September 13 when both carriages meet up at a large conference at Pellevoisin, France

And I recently learned of a fantastic series of events starting on the Virgin Mary’s birthday, September 8. It is called the Spiritual Rosary Pilgrimage. It is my understanding that this is a Free internet event that is emanating from Australia and runs from September 8 for 4 weeks until October 7.

It features over 20 Catholic speakers and much focus is on the Virgin Mary and the Holy Rosary. It looks to be a massive 4-week series of free online activities. Go to their website for more information at parousiamedia.com or search on line for: Spiritual Rosary Pilgrimage.

So there are wonderful, uplifting events revolving around the Virgin Mary this day and with many prayerful ways to reach out to her as her birthday on September 8 approaches.

Speaking of which, The Passion of St John the Baptist takes place on August 29, a Saturday this year. Take a moment to reflect on his role in our Christian history as well.

That’s it for this special edition of Constant Procession. I hope these events and activities are helpful for your spiritual renewal and growth.

210- ‘Constant Procession’ Part 10

The 10th installment from my book Constant Procession

The story of the Virgin Mary’s apparitions to Bernadette Soubirous. The events took place in the year 1858. Though the history of Our Lady of Lourdes is well known, the miraculous importance during WW II is overlooked and of course her influence there continues today.

The 9th installment from my book Constant Procession-

The Virgin’s Miraculous Metal arrives during an epidemic in Paris in 1832!

For the next part of my journey of discovery, it’s the year 1846. I learn about the Virgin Mary apparating at LaSalette, France with a Message of Hope. In the words of Pope John Paul II, “This message shows that Divisions are repairable.”

AUGUST 2020- Statue of Mary in France with Procession (photo LA-CROIX.com)

And as all roads lead to the Virgin Mary…

Today, The Virgin Mary is traveling across France! 2 identical statues of ‘Our Lady of France’ are mounted on two horse drawn carriages. They are out on the road and running to counter the world-wide Pandemic! 

Pilgrims are traversing France following the identical statues on these horse drawn carriages. (see photo above)

One carriage started at LaSalette and is on route through Paris and the 2nd carriage is traveling from Lourdes and will meet up with the other in Pellevoisin!

This wonderful procession is tracing the letter ‘M’ all across France and has been going on all summer!

This originally came to my attention from Constant Procession friend and supporter Josée P. (Herself bravely traveling back home to France several weeks ago!)

Thank-you Josée for keeping me up to date as the 2 horse drawn carriages (and growing procession of pilgrims) fearlessly continue the tour across France during this troubled summer of 2020!

May 16 is the 100th Year Anniversary of Joan of Arc becoming a Saint!

Here’s an amazing reality – Mark Twain wrote a book about Joan of Arc and felt it was his greatest work! Here’s a quote from him (from the Catholic World Report)

Mark Twain was still alive when the Church beatified Joan of Arc in 1909. To a certain extent, his novel remains a puzzling act of devotion from a complicated man. For the great American author, there was no one like St. Joan. He marveled at her confidence in God’s Will, her courage, her simplicity. And in her he saw an example for all time. We can hear Twain’s own voice in the words of his narrator describing Joan: “It took six thousand years to produce her; her like will not be seen in the earth again in fifty thousand. Such is my opinion.”

197- The Ascension of Christ, also May is the Month of Mary

Green Arrow = Play Podcast

During Eastertime they feasted with Christ during those 40 days and his Mother was among his witnesses. Then came his Ascension. Tradition tells us The Virgin Mary was there.

Also, there are Marian oriented works afoot after the Re-Consecration of North America to the Virgin Mary several weeks ago. They include a major motion picture premier about an apparition of the Virgin Mary entitled ‘Fatima.’ Also there is a growing recognition for the ‘Flame of Love’ requests by the Virgin Mary to seer Elizabeth Kindelmann.

This icon portrays Christ’s victory over death and evil that many Christian church communities bring up throughout the 50 days of Eastertime.

This icon of the Ascension shows Christ rising towards heaven. Below are the apostles as well as the Virgin Mary too.  And while the Apostles logically are looking up as Christ is rising, they appear to be talking amongst themselves in wonderment while watching Christ as he rises, whereas  The Virgin Mary is depicted  as centermost and very calm has her hands raised up in prayer.

Also included are two angels behind the Virgin Mary who speak one line to those witnesses to the event, the first angel says according to the Acts of the Apostles: “ This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into Heaven” This event occurs forty days after Christ arose from the tomb, but 10 days before Pentecost.
