True meaning of an Heroic Act of Charity

      In preparation for All Saints Day and All Souls Day in a few days, we continue the second part of a three-part series on IN COMMUNION WITH THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS with an explanation of the cycle of the Communion of Saints and what Jesus and Saint Augustine as well as Holy Mother Church say about Purgatory and the sacrifices we, as members of the Church Militant, can make such as the Heroic Act of Charity. This is explained in detail in today's installment on Purgatory as we concentrate on the poor souls during the month of November.

Installment Eighty-two

The Thirty-Seventh Clarion:
part one:

"So we, the many, are one body in Christ,
but severally members of one another."

Romans 12: 5

"Many of my priest-sons will suffer hideously at the hands of superiors who shall threaten them and exile them, forcing my Divine Son's Church underground."

     Those are the words from the Blessed Mother Mary in message 256 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart, which we bring you today in which Our Lady urges us to be obedient to the Holy Father for there are many around him who plot against him and against the Will of God. She warns that we must be strong and pray ceaselessly for many of her loyal ones will be persecuted for standing by the truth in a world that has succumbed to the seven deadly sins through the wiles and snares of the devil. This, she alerts us, has reached all the way to the sanctuary of her Divine Son's Church and heresy is spreading fast as the modernists twist things to suit their own agenda. There will be a price to pay for this insubordination and we must realize all will suffer, but those who remain loyal through prayer, sacrifice and obedience will be rewarded in the end. No one will be immune from the chastisements for that is part of our Calvary journey. For messages 255 and 256, click on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..."

     Today's prayer is in honor of the poor souls in Purgatory. When one prays this prayer from the heart countless souls are released from Purgatory at God's will. It is an excellent way as members of the Church Militant to fulfill our role in the Communion of Saints:

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son Jesus in union with all the Masses said throughout the world today; for the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, in my home and in my family. Amen.

October 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today I call you to come closer to my Immaculate Heart. I call you to renew in your families the fervor of the first days when I called you to fasting, prayer and conversion. Little children, you accepted my messages with open hearts, although you did not know what prayer was. Today, I call you to open yourselves completely to me so that I may transform you and lead you to the heart of my Son Jesus, so that He can fill you with His love. Only in this way, little children, will you find true peace - the peace that only God gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
