Be Reconciled in the Refuge of Reconciliation through Mary, Reconciler of nations in this Age of Marian Apparitions

     In today's installment on the Apparitions at Betania, Venezuela, we bring you the first message to Betania visionary Maria Esperanza di Bianchini from the Blessed Mother who identified herself as the "Reconciler" and linked her appearances in Venezuela with those of Lourdes nearly a century and a half ago. Our Lady reiterates that there is no "class system" with mankind for all are God's children. She reiterates the importance of embracing her Divine Son Jesus and being willing to become "Ambassadors of Reconciliation" to help bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

A Message of Unity and Reconciliation

December Decorations that can illuminate our hearts with nourishment

     It might be strange to bring you a story of baseball in December, but clear away the snow and open your heart for the diamond game story we bring you today is timeless as Hall of Fame great and Corporal Works of Mercy crusader Roberto Clemente may have discovered when he entered the pearly gates. We also bring you a short, whimsical bit on things or situations that we may regard as truths but more often fall in line with suppositions. For the vignettes, A Grace-full game! and Simple finite truths!, click on DECEMBER DECORATIONS THAT ENHANCE FOOD FOR THOUGHT APPETEASERS
      Today's food for thought is a potpourri of seriousness and whimsy, the former is the first story which deals with baseball in the clouds as sent to us via e-mail by GDS. Even though baseball season is over, we couldn't resist bringing you this bit of wisdom as free agents continue to break the bank of owners and the ticket-buying public while missing the real point which Hall of Fame great Roberto Clemente might have discovered after he left this earth several years ago. Following is a hypothetical game that strikes home with an important point. The second part leans to the whimsy as we bring you seventeen truths - or suppositions that are truly finite brought to us by NH via e-mail. .

A Grace-full game!

Simple finite truths!

"I need your unity of mind and heart, your willingness to be My humble instruments and My innocent victims in order to fulfill Scripture and bring My Mother's Heart to triumph."

      Jesus Christ pulls no punches in His Message #299 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart at the beginning of Lent 1993 in which He chastises those who strive to defeat His mission by dividing through attacks on His messengers. He asks His faithful ones " to cease all rumors, gossiping and slander" which cause confusion, doubt and contribute to His adversary satan's scheme. This message is just as timely today as some continue to malign messengers and Medjugorje. Sadly, they do not realize they are playing right into the evil one's hands. His Blessed Mother Mary precedes her Divine Son's Message with Message #298 in which she pleads with her children to root out pride and to be obedient to the Church. She weeps at the destruction so many do by attacking others and she warns that this deters her Immaculate Heart from triumphing sooner.
