Conquering Fear In Our Times

Fifth Joyful Mystery: The Finding in the Temple, by Michael D. O’Brien.

 

LAST week, the Holy Father sent 29 newly ordained priests into the world asking them to "proclaim and witness to joy." Yes! We must all continue to witness to others the joy of knowing Jesus.

But many Christians do not even feel joy, let alone witness to it. In fact, many are full of stress, anxiety, fear, and a sense of abandonment as the pace of life quickens, the cost of living increases, and they watch the news headlines unfold around them. "How," some ask, "can I be joyful?"

A Woman and a Dragon

 

IT is one of the most remarkable ongoing miracles in modern times, and the majority of Catholics are likely unaware of it. Chapter Six in my book, The Final Confrontation, deals with the incredible miracle of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and how it relates to Chapter 12 in the Book of Revelation. Due to widespread myths that have been accepted as facts, however, my original version has been revised to reflect the verified scientific realities surrounding the tilma upon which the image remains as in inexplicable phenomenon. The miracle of the tilma needs no embellishment; it stands on its own as a great "sign of the times."

I have published Chapter Six below for those who already have my book. The Third Printing is now available for those who would like to order additional copies, which includes the information below and any typographical corrections found.

Note: the footnotes below are numbered differently than the printed copy.

World Congress and Book, CD

 

THIS coming October 6th-11th, I will be attending the First Sacred Heart World Congress in Paray-le-Monial, France, where the revelations of the Sacred Heart were given to St. Margaret Mary. This Congress is undoubtedly part of the final thrusts of "the last effort" to make known Christ’s Sacred Heart to the world, and the Divine Mercy that flows from it. 

Pray about joining me there for a time of prayer and reflection, and I believe, commissioning to become a part of God’s last effort toward mankind. For more information, go to:

The Last Effort


The Last Effort, by Tianna Mallett

 

SOLEMNITY OF THE SACRED HEART

 

First published January 7th, 2010


IMMEDIATELY after Isaiah’s beautiful vision of an era of peace and justice preceded by a purification of the earth, which leaves a remnant, he writes a brief prayer in praise and thanksgiving of God’s mercy—a prophetic prayer, as we will see:

You will say in that day… Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. You shall draw waters with joy out of the savior’s fountain… (Isaiah 12:1-2)

The Blessed Virgin’s Magnificat was an echo of this victory song—a song that will be echoed by the Church in that new era. But for now, I want to look at the powerful christological connection of Isaiah’s words in our dramatic times, and how they are part of God’s “last effort” now toward mankind…

 

THE LAST EFFORT

At the very moment in history when Satan began to sow the philosophical lie of deism, which sought to turn God into a cold, distant creator, Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690 A.D.). He revealed to her His flaming Sacred Heart, burning with love for His creation. More than that, He was revealing His counter-plan to the dragon’s lies:
