Faustina Tells Me "Why" A House of Prayer

625 In the evening, when I was praying, the Mother of God told me, Your lives must be like Mine: quiet and hidden, in unceasing union with God, pleading for humanity and preparing the world for the second coming of God. Diary of St. Faustina

From EWTN A Reminder

Our Lady of All Nations 

On 31 May 2002 Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt of Haarlem, having concluded a period of investigation, declared the apparitions accorded Ida Peerdeman of Amsterdam, Holland, in which the Blessed Virgin Mary asked to be known as Our Lady of All Nations, to be "of a supernatural origin".
Decree of 31 May 2002 (Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader)
This decree ends a 45 year period of investigation and decision, as reflected in the following history:
7 May 1956 - Bishop of Haarlem finds no evidence of the supernatural nature of the apparitions, and prohibits public veneration.
2 March 1957 - Bishop of Haarlem confirms this decision with consent of the Holy Office (13 March 1957).
24 May 1972 - Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, responding to a letter of 29 March from the Bishop, re-affirms its decision.
27 June 1974 - CDF affirms its earlier decision, after a deeper investigation, inviting the faithful to discontinue all forms propaganda with regard to these alleged apparitions and revelations.
31 May 1996 - The then Bishop of Haarlem, Henry Bomers, published a Notification clarifying the distinction between the title, image and prayer, on one hand, and the messages on the other. The title, image and prayer had been approved for private veneration since the 1950s (according to this decree), and he was now granting the privilege of public veneration, as well. The belief in the messages had been prohibited, but now was permitted according to one's own conscience, the Church being unable to rule definitively "at the moment". As the decree notes, he consulted with "official authorities", without specifying who those authorities were.
3 December 1997 - The Bishop writes Letter (HB-97-403)  commending the "Action of The Lady of All Nations" and the work of Fr. Paul Maria Sigl.
3 May 2002 - In a Letter of 3 May 2002, Raphael Soffner of the public affairs office of the diocese of Haarlem affirmed to EWTN that the public veneration of Our Lady of All Nations by title, image and prayer, is permitted to Catholics by decision of the Bishop of Haarlem, "with the consent of the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome". Catholics may make "a personal judgment according to their conscience" regarding the messages and apparition.
31 May 2002 - Bishop Punt declares the apparitions to be of supernatural origin.
July 2005 - The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith requests "that the words who once was Mary be left out of the prayer of the Lady of All Nations out of consideration for those who do not understand this phrase." The ending of the prayer is now to say: “May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our Advocate.” (Letter of December 2006).

The Expression "Who Once Was Mary"
In the original approved prayer, the Blessed Virgin was referred to as Our Lady of All Nations "who once was Mary". It is explained by the promoters of the devotion in the following manner:
This refers to the fact that Mary is no longer just Mary but ratherThe LadyThe Woman at the foot of the Cross. These words refer to her Eternal Motherhood over all of us, for she is Mother Whom Jesus gave to us from the Cross with the words: Woman behold thy Son!
Nonetheless, as noted above the apostolate changed the prayer in 2005 to comply with a request of the CDF, as noted in a 2006 letter.

Months ago...I predicted

the Dems would support Elizabeth Warren for president....Watch!

Searching for an alternative to Hillary Clinton for 2016, some Democratic donors are meeting with potential challengers. Liberal activists are trying to coax Sen. Elizabeth Warren into running. Politicians not named Hillary Clinton are testing their appeal in New Hampshire and Iowa.

Are you prepping?

God bless these good men

According to Spanish daily El Pais, the suspect had lived in Spain and moved to France in 2014, where he was known to the French authorities after being flagged as a potential jihadist by Spanish intelligence services. The newspaper also reported that he had visited Syria.

Coming Out of A BisyBakson Day

I find it interesting that I am more creative in some physical places than others.

I have written tons of poetry in certain places of the world.

I have written plays, short stories, essays in certain places.

In other places, I have had writer's block.

Place is important to me for writing, and for praying, but one learns to pray anywhere after a while....

at bus stops, in airports, in grocery stores......

But creative thinking needs a certain type of rest. And, when one is having many busy days, creativity shrinks back into the corner of one's mind and soul, hiding until it is safe to come out again.

One cannot force creative thinking. One has to wait for it to come forward, and if one tries to force creativity, it hides even more.

I did some painting earlier this summer and I did two good paintings quickly. But, I struggled with the third one, which was actually the first one I had started. It was on a large canvas and I was using acrylics.

Finally, after one month, this painting "came together". One has to learn to wait, to let things go in the process, not to push, pressure, or rush.

Same with writing poetry or short stories.

One of my friends asked me for a new short story. As my readers know, although I have several on line, I think seven, I have not written one for a long time.

I cannot

I shall have to wait.

Waiting is a sign of maturity. One learns to work with one's own psyche.

Today, while helping my mother pick grapes--there are several vines on the homestead--I saw a small, green treefrog. It was dead, but looked alive. I realized it had died in the cold night, as autumn is coming upon us quickly here.

The small animal was so vulnerable to its place. It had to live in a certain temperature, a certain terrain, on a certain leaf, or in a tree.

Humans are much more adaptable than small tree frogs. I was upset that this one had died so soon in the season, as it is still August. But, the tree frog croaking has stopped already in the trees. We are in a for a severe winter.

Place and environment form us and keep us in a way which is almost mystical. God created that little, rather beautiful frog for a specific season, a particular place.

We are all like this, made to be in the place where God wants us to be, in His Will.

I pray daily "Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven."
