Marian thought for August

“Dearest children, I desire very much to tell you, to repeat for you, how good the Immaculate is. That way I could remove forever from your little hearts all sadness, hopelessness, and discouragement. The word “Maria” spoken by a soul steeped in doubts, aridity and even misfortune due to sin re-echoes in her heart, which loves us very much. The greater the unhappiness of a soul sunk in its faults, the more solicitous is her care, the Refuge of us poor sinners. Never worry that you do not feel this love. If you have the will to love, you already give a proof that you love. What counts is the will to love. External feeling is also a fruit of grace, but it does not always follow the will. Sometimes, my dear ones, the thought, a sad longing, as if a plea or a complaint, may occur to you: “Does the Immaculate still love me?” Most beloved children! I tell you all and each one individually, in her name (mark that: in her name!), she loves every one of you. She loves you very much and at every moment, with no exception. This, my dearest children, I repeat to you in her name. Love Her and She will make you happy! Love Her and trust in Her without limits”

(St. Maximilian Kolbe).

Our Lady of Fatima

"Are you suffering a great deal? Don’t lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God" (Our Lady's words to Sister Lucia in Fatima during the second apparition on June 13, 1917).

Lucia was born on March 22, 1907 in Aljustrel, Fatima (Portugal). When she saw Our Lady for the first time she was only 10 years old. In 1921, she entered the Dorothean Sisters but it was God's plan that she would become a Discalced Carmelite Nun. This finally took place in 1948 when she entered the Carmelite Convent of "St. Teresa" in Coimbra (Portugal). Our Lady had said that Francisco and Jacinta would shortly go to Heaven but that Lucia must stay in order to make her messages known. That is what Lucia did until she died on February 13, 2005, after which, her cause of beatification has also been introduced. In her "memoires" she left us the narrative of the apparitions and other writings. Amongst her writings, the following passage can be read in which she speaks about the Rosary: "The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or, above all, spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families… that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary".
