Betania's mystical messenger - an ambassador of Reconciliation with universal impact

      We continue today with our multi-part series on the "New Lourdes" which is, of course, the Apparitions in Betania to visionary Maria Esperanza de Bianchini on a small farm south of Caracas, Venezuela where the Mother of God has come to announce to the world that this is truly her "land of grace" and that she wants all her children to become "Ambassadors of Reconciliation." In the second part, we meet the visionary Maria Esperanza de Bianchini. For the second part on The New Lourdes: Betania - Refuge of Reconciliation , click on THE AGE OF MARIAN APPARITIONS.

Chosen and destined by God

Where have all the angels gone?

      They are still there, more numerous than ever, but we do not call upon them enough as the Blessed Mother Mary points out in her messages to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart. Our Lady also asks us to be victim souls for her Divine Son and that the angels will help us and guide us in directing us closer to Jesus, enveloping us when we finally are reunited with Him in Heaven if we but heed her words and God's laws now.

      Today's dosage of dogma comes from EJB via e-mail and should really help all of us take better stock of all God has given us and not take Him for granted.

     And from GDS via e-mail comes these Catholic malaprops:

September 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today, I call you to become my witnesses by living the faith of your fathers. Little children, you seek signs and messages and do not see that, with every morning sunrise, God calls you to convert and to return to the way of truth and salvation. You speak much, little children, but you work little on your conversion. That is why, convert and start to live my messages, not with your words but with your life. In this way, little children, you will have the strength to decide for the true conversion of the heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.
