Devotion
 to hte faithful
departed


November is the month dedicated to the faithful departed.

Non of the convinced catholic doubts of the legitimacy of the power of prayers and good dids addressed to God for the Souls of the faithful departed.
Sometimes also we catholics are doubtful about the value of the prayers and good dids.We need to make it clear and try to remember what was said about the etymological meaning of the ward " SUFRAGE " In our days it has the unmistaka ble meaning of prayers for the dead ones. Really the latin meaning of " Sufrage "means simply " HELP " In recent times we have the real meaning when we talk about electoral suffrage for candidates,a support for a vote.

What kind of help do we talk about when we apply it to the fathful departed ? certenly not to material help, for example a medicine, a cup of coffee and so on .

The only help we can give to the faithful departed is to accelerate the achiviement of the vision to the Beatitude of God.


Is the ward " Accelerate " exact ? We know very well that after life there is no more time or acceleraretion of times . We should remember that we are unable to go beyond with our physical body.

Unfortunally when we talk about the supernatural subject there is nothing we can imagine With our fantasy and neather with our human understanding.

After ali this preamble it is more easy to proclame with the Church Doctrin that our help or sufrage is very important for the faithful departed as it is important for us. Infact as have said that the Church is a Church of the living in God with Christ in three levels : EARTHLY PILGRIMAGE, FINAL PURIFICATION and ETERNAL GLORY . Three levels but the living reality is only one.

What happens in one of these levels resounds in the other two levels. With this we will be able to understand what we can do with our prayers and good dids for the dead and a consolation for our brothers and sisters already enjoing the peace of the heavenly presence of GODS GLORY.

It is easy for us to understand that eather the Saints or our dead ones are helpful to us with the same supernatural meaning.

To reasume ali we have said , we believe by our catholic faith to the validity of our prayers to advantage of our dead ones.

Better stili we must conclude and underline that ali of our spiritual life, good dids, sufferings and also joys elevated to God go to their advantage, even when we do not say it expressely: It is the comunion of the Saints , the more consouling virtue that can happen to the Cristian faith.

SEMANA SANTA
UMA REFLEXÃO SOBRE A SEMANA SANTA

" Nós oramos à Cristo crucificado" escreve o Apostolo Paolo na primeira epistola aos Corintios ( 1.23) " Não são os sinais e muito menos a sabedoria que devem estar ao centro da reflexão e por isso mesmo a fé cristã, mas a morte de Jesus Cristo. Aqui está o centro de toda a teologia e por esse motivo as Igrejas Cristãs tem ao centro de seus altares a cruz, o crucifixo, como a lembrar que o fato mais importante é a morte de Jesus Cristo que se humanizou pela nossa salvação, para nos lavar de nossos pecados, para um dia estar junto Dele na Gloria Celeste Eterna. Somente a fé, com a ajuda da sabedoria, é que nos permite de conhecer um minimo desse amor que Cristo teve e continua havendo por todos nós, seus irmãos menores.

THE WAYS OF THE SPIRIT

THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS

THE  LADY OF ALL NATIONS
On March 25, 1945 Our Lady appeared in Amsterdam to Ida Peerdeman (†1996).
This was the first of 56 apparitions, which took place between 1945 and 1959.
On May 31, 2002, the local bishop came to the conclusion that the apparitions of Amsterdam are of supernatural origin. Our Lady appears under a new title,
 “The Lady of All Nations” or “The Mother of All Nations”.
In this time she wants to be made known and loved by everyone under this title.
In a prophetic way, she gives, above all, an impressive insight about the situation in the Church and in the world. In the messages, Mary gradually reveals a plan with which God wants to save the world and prepare it for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Accordingly, she gives all peoples and nations an image and a prayer:

La Sagrada Familia: Jesús, María y José

La Sagrada Familia:
Jesús, María y José

Evangelio: Mateo 2,13-15.19.23
Levántate, toma al niño y a su madre y huye a Egipto.

Junto al silencio para oír, José nos regala otra actitud fundamental para orar: la obediencia a la novedad de Dios; porque el protagonismo es de Él y su propuesta es superior a nuestras fuerzas. José acoge el amor desbordante de Dios y avanza obedeciendo; de esa forma, en lo insignificante y en lo humilde, se hace presente la amorosa voluntad de Dios. José obedece para cuidar la vida de su familia, la vida de Jesús, que desde los inicios está amenazada. ¡Cuánta fidelidad de Dios a José, y de José a Dios! ¡Cuánta confianza y fuerza le brotan de sus adentros iluminados por la fe!

Gesù e gli Apostoli, usciti di casa, riprendono il viaggio verso Gerusalemme. Un giovane gli corse incontro e, gettatosi in ginocchio davanti a Lui, gli domandò: “Maestro buono, che cosa devo fare per avere la vita eterna?". Dopo l’incontro con i bambini, questo con il giovane ricco, crea un suggestivo contrasto ammonitore. I bambini avevano cercato Gesù in casa, il giovane lo attende per le vie del mondo. Gesù gli disse: "Tu conosci i comandamenti: non uccidere, non rubare, non commettere adulterio, non dire falsa testimonianza, non frodare, onora il padre e la madre…". Marco dice che Gesù guardò il giovane con occhio amoroso. Sono i particolari dell’evangelista che più volte ha fatto rilievi sullo sguardo di Gesù. Evidentemente sono particolari appresi da Pietro (suo informatore) che tra l’altro sperimentò tale sguardo su di sé, dopo il tradimento.

Preghiera di san Bernardo


Preghiera a san Bernardo

Vergine madre, figlia del tuo Figlio,

umile ed alta più che creatura,
termine fisso d’eterno consiglio.

Tu se’ colei che l’umana natura

nobilitasti sì, che il suo Fattore
non disdegnò di farsi sua fattura.

Nel ventre tuo si raccese l’amore

per lo cui caldo nell’eterna pace
così è germinato questo fiore.
