A BLESSED CHRISTMAS TO YOU.
Once again, I pray that Our Blessed Savior, the newborn babe in Bethlehem, grant
to you all your petitions, be they His Most Perfect Will, through the powerful
intercession of His Most Holy Mother, and Glorious St. Joseph.
Let us not forget to invoke the powerful intercession of our guardian angel, who
was present at that hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the Most
Pure Blessed Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem. The intercession of our
guardian angels, of all the choirs of angels is a powerful tool, which we in our
finite minds seldom think of.
Those who, by grace alone, have seen the Great Apostasy being played out before
our senses, who have embraced the only True Faith, the One, Holy, Catholic, and
Apostolic Faith given to us by Our Lord Himself, passed down through the
Apostolic Succession, pray with increased fervor at this Joyous time, for
miracles! Yes, miracles.
Every single day we experience miracles in our individual lives! They do not
make headlines, they are not the subject of news programs (thank you, God!), but
these miracles exist. We are still alive, still breathing, still capable of
thinking, acting, praying, receiving the Sacraments, attending the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass, and not least, of suffering all that we can in this
mortal life in reparation and expiation for our own sins, and those of others.
We need to ask the Divine Infant, so tender, so mild, so trusting in the arms of
Mary, His Mother, and of St. Joseph, found worthy to hold the Son of God in his
arms, for miracles, those that so few notice, and the mighty ones that garner
the attention of the masses. We need to start praying more, suffering and
sacrificing more, mortifying our senses, and above all, remembering the billions
headed to perdition because they have denied Our Lord and Savior born this day
in Bethlehem, Who came to redeem fallen mankind, and restore us to the
privilege, through His merits and grace, as adopted sons of God. Even the pure
angels have not this privilege of being called adopted sons of God.
Let us not fail in our confidence and trust in the Infant Savior of the World.
He came for you, for me, for the most wretched sinner. He came to renew the
face of the earth. He draws all things to Himself, for He is King over all
creation. Therefore, let us not hesitate in our prayers to ask and beseech Him
to grant us graces, virtues, holiness, sanctity, and the miracles our world so
desperately needs in the midst of the Great Apostasy.
Ask, and it shall be given to you.
Seek, and you shall find.
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
For the majority of the world it is the season of giving and receiving of
temporal gifts. The greatest gift we can give to God is our very life, that in
trusting Him, He may do with us as He sees fit. Also, we can cease to be part
of the greed of the season, and start being part of the reason for the
season that is, let us ASK. Ask in prayer for miracles and keep praying for
them. Do not cease your efforts. If you pray with confidence and trust, I
believe we have the right before the Throne of Almighty God to expect the
miracle we seek, provided we are asking for that which is for the greater honor
and glory of Almighty God, the salvation of our own soul, and the souls of
As we adore the Infant Savior, it is never too late, nor can it be too soon, to
Tis the season to ASK. Let us join together to ASK, and if we do this together
in the proper spirit, then we can expect to see a flood of graces descend from
Heaven for our own needs temporal and spiritual and the needs of others. The
more we love LOVE, Who is God, the more we are transformed into His Image and
Likeness, as will the entire human race. Oh, we need miracles! Let us ask, and
keep asking, with sincerity of heart, confidence, and true humility.
May each of you have a blessed and holy Christmas, that will extend throughout
the Christmas Season to each moment of every day of the rest of your life.
