Holy Rosary – Shalom Night Vigil – June 2016

“Say the Rosary every day…
Pray, pray a lot and offer sacrifices for sinners…
I’m Our Lady of the Rosary.
Only I will be able to help you.
…In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

Our Lady at Fatima

The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. With the Rosary in fact we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. It’s a simple prayer, humble so much like Mary. It’s a prayer we can all say together with Her, the Mother of God. With the Hail Mary we invite Her to pray for us. Our Lady always grants our request. She joins Her prayer to ours. Therefore it becomes ever more useful, because what Mary asks She always receives, Jesus can never say no to whatever His Mother asks for. In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Holy Rosary as a powerful weapon against evil, to bring us to true peace. With your prayer made together with Your heavenly Mother, you can obtain the great gift of bringing about a change of hearts and conversion. Each day, through prayer you can drive away from yourselves and from your homeland many dangers and many evils.The word Rosary means “Crown of Roses”. Our Lady has revealed to several people that each time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown of roses. The rose is the queen of flowers, and so the Rosary is the rose of all devotions and it is therefore the most important one.

Arise, cry out in the night,

When you want Christian assurance, call Romans 8:1-30

Romans 8:1-30

Life Through the Spirit

8 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Present Suffering and Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Jesus heals a paralytic – Jesus healing miracles

Healing of the Paralytic ManParalysis is the complete loss of muscle function for one or more muscle groups. Paralysis can cause loss of feeling or loss of mobility in the affected area.  Some of you might have seen paralysed people lying on bed, even some of them are lying in that stage for months or years. Their family members have to help them to do everything. They have to remove their urine and stool, make them clean and wash their body, change their dress, means everything. For some people it is burden for them, but most people take care of the paralysed with love and affection. God will surely bless them for their service and love.

Jesus Heals a Paralytic Mark 2:1-12

1When he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home.
2 So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them.
3 Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.
4 And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay.

The bible says “Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. ” This paralyzed man could not walk or move himself. Four people carried him to Jesus with strong faith that Jesus can heal him. But because of the crowd, they could not enter in the house. When they realize that they cannot possibly get him through the door, they carry their helpless paralytic friend upstairs to the roof and lower the bed in front of Jesus as He is speaking.  The roof might not have made with large pieces of wood and might not have shingles, but had tiles or such material which could be lifted or broken through easily to make a hole.  Just imagine, if this was happened today, how could they make a hole in the multi storied/concrete roof ?  These men were so sure that Jesus would be able to heal him, otherwise they wouldn’t have gone to so much trouble. Their determination to place him before Jesus displays their faith that he would be healed.


5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

The first thing Jesus said when He saw that they believed was, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”  Probably not what the man or his friends expected. He came to Jesus because he wanted to walk.

Except that Jesus knew what this man needed most because he knew what was in his heart.  Jesus knew that being paralyzed would be difficult but it was even worse not to be forgiven. Jesus is the Son of Man, and God has given him the power to forgive sins and heal people.


6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts,
7 “Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
8 At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, “Why do you raise such questions in your hearts?
9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Stand up and take your mat and walk’?
10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic—
11 “I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go to your home.”
12 And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

 

The healing of the paralytic impressed and excited everyone present. In today’s world also we can see people without faith. They may ask how prayer can heal a person. They do not believe in prayer, they go to church just as a routine, do not have confession even once in a year, no repentance, just live in the present world enjoying the life.

Many of us are sick and under treatment. Some sickness give us a chance to seek God, attend retreat, repent, confession, counselling and make a change in our life spiritually. After this spiritual healing, many diseases, even some diseases which medical science have confirmed that are not curable, are cured. You may not believe it, unless it happen before your eyes. But many testimonies reveal that it is true. If you have strong faith your prayers will be answered and Jesus will surely heal you physically and spiritually.

Christ deals first with the spiritual problem—the forgiveness of sins—and then the physical problem—the physical affliction. Most people want it the other way around, putting greater emphasis on healing the physical ailment than fixing the spiritual problem.

Do you see someone in your life that needs to be carried to Christ in prayer because their paralysis is so grave? Pray for them daily and encourage your friends/relatives also to pray for them. Jesus will heal through your prayers.

Do you surround yourself with people who bring you to Christ when you are unable to choose Him for yourself?

If you have faith in prayer and Jesus healing, you may download Prayer Book for the sick . Pray for friends/relatives who are sick. Like the faith of the friends healed the paralytic man, Jesus will heal them through your faithful prayers.

May God bless you all.
