    hello everybody

    It is good to *see* you all - keeps the kindred spirit warm!

    Marla, that's the problem with Mary - the more we love her the more in love with Jesus are we. Yes, I too am a lover of EA - and I think it would be a good idea to share your experiences with the group - it just might meet the mark - get more adorers - get more people visiting Jesus!

    Isbar, how r u? lil Carson? the weather and the moon still smiling?

    Mercy1, outside of Mass, you have chosen the most beautiful form of prayer - the Rosary and the Divine Mercy chaplet.... please continue praying that and the Holy Spirit will lead you on.
    If you would like to learn a new prayer, and since this group is dedicated to the Sorrowful Mother, maybe you can learn about her Seven Sorrows. There is a link above the main wall.... it is a great way to ask for our Mother's intercession! I love it and suppose there are others too, in this group who love the Seven Sorrows!

    Echoing and quoting St. Paul, St. Louis de Montfort / St. Bernard / St. Dominic and the teachings of our Holy Mother Church, dear James, you have a solid army with you and I'd like to say we are indebted to these words of wisdom!

    "Let us say boldly with St. Bernard that we have need of a mediator with the Mediator Himself, and that it is the divine Mary who is the most capable of filling that charitable office. It was through her that Jesus Christ came to us, and it is through her that we must go to Him. If we fear to go directly to Jesus Christ, our God, whether because of His infinite greatness or because of our vileness or because of our sins, let us boldly implore the aid and intercession of Mary, our Mother. She is good, she is tender, she has nothing in her austere and forbidding, nothing too sublime and too brilliant. In seeing her, we see our pure nature."

    ~ St. Louis de Montfort

    Queenship of Mary

    Pius XII established this feast in 1954. But Mary’s queenship has roots in Scripture. At the Annunciation, Gabriel announced that Mary’s Son would receive the throne of David and rule forever. At the Visitation, Elizabeth calls Mary “mother of my Lord.” As in all the mysteries of Mary’s life, Mary is closely associated with Jesus: Her queenship is a share in Jesus’ kingship. We can also recall that in the Old Testament the mother of the king has great influence in court.

    In the fourth century St. Ephrem (June 9) called Mary “Lady” and “Queen.” Later Church fathers and doctors continued to use the title. Hymns of the 11th to 13th centuries address Mary as queen: “Hail, Holy Queen,” “Hail, Queen of Heaven,” “Queen of Heaven.” The Dominican rosary and the Franciscan crown as well as numerous invocations in Mary’s litany celebrate her queenship.

    The feast is a logical follow-up to the Assumption and is now celebrated on the octave day of that feast. In his 1954 encyclical To the Queen of Heaven, Pius XII points out that Mary deserves the title because she is Mother of God, because she is closely associated as the New Eve with Jesus’ redemptive work, because of her preeminent perfection and because of her intercessory power.

    As St. Paul suggests in Romans 8:28–30, God has predestined human beings from all eternity to share the image of his Son. All the more was Mary predestined to be the mother of Jesus. As Jesus was to be king of all creation, Mary, in dependence on Jesus, was to be queen. All other titles to queenship derive from this eternal intention of God. As Jesus exercised his kingship on earth by serving his Father and his fellow human beings, so did Mary exercise her queenship. As the glorified Jesus remains with us as our king till the end of time (Matthew 28:20), so does Mary, who was assumed into heaven and crowned queen of heaven and earth.

    “Let the entire body of the faithful pour forth persevering prayer to the Mother of God and Mother of men. Let them implore that she who aided the beginnings of the Church by her prayers may now, exalted as she is in heaven above all the saints and angels, intercede with her Son in the fellowship of all the saints. May she do so until all the peoples of the human family, whether they are honored with the name of Christian or whether they still do not know their Savior, are happily gathered together in peace and harmony into the one People of God, for the glory of the Most Holy and Undivided Trinity” (Vatican II, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, 69).

    Hello all!!! I am a lover of Eucharistic Adoration and recently I approached my Pastor and asked him if he could mention something in his weekly letter to draw more people to coming~ he recommend I write something myself and he would put it in the bulletin. So I did~'if you would like me to post it here I could do that~ if you like it perhaps you could use it to encourage others to come and adore the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration at your parish......God Bless you all

    Hi, James, thanks for the prayer for my computer... the buttons that make the smilies work are back working!

    And now for that coffee that I miss a few days ago... And some treats to go with it. I am sharing for all who come to the party.

    Blessings, everyone! I am praying for all of you who are part of this forum.

    How are you, FootStool?????

    It seems I am a bit late for the coffee party, but will join in now. For some reason I have a hard time finding this forum. Since I started using Google Chrome, things are very different... However, Now I cannot get the buttons to work...again...

    That has been a day of good news. First news of the day was that Meriam is now free and stopped in Rome to see Pope Francis. How great is that???

    Just a few minutes ago I found out that little Carson is well enough to come home, which he did today. YAY! Praise God for His goodness in answering prayers.

    I had other good news as well, but it is still a work in progress. I am praying that Jesus and His Mother will help us through next step.

    Good to see FootStool, Johnthe Baptist and James posting. Yes, where is everyone???

    Blessings, everyone! Praying for you. :-)
