HAPPY FEAST of OUR LADY'S ASSUMPTION!

 

Today, in spite of the rain, of the divisions among us, the reign of death and violence in many places, including our country, the triumph of lies and deception in hearts and minds, we still celebrate.

Blessed Virgin Mary at Ghaxaq, Malta.

WE MUST CELEBRATE in prayer and thanksgiving, for it is a glorious day, on which the Virgin Mother of God was taken up to heaven. She is a great sign, DAKILANG TANDA; her assumption is a great sign, DAKILANG TANDA, speaking to our sense of hope and courage in the midst of death and sin, that the final triumph of God will take place. God has already done it to the Lord Jesus Christ on the day of his resurrection.God has already done it to the Blessed Mother on the day of her Assumption.

They are great signs, DAKILANG TANDA, that what have been accomplished in them will be accomplished in us, as long as we believe, persevere in believing and live according to our believing. God's grace will triumph. The love of the Blessed Mother will triumph over sin and death, here in our country, a pueblo amante de Maria. We have been consecrated as a people and nation to the Blessed Mother. She will never let us down. 

Forever, she protects us under the mantle of her light and grace. Let us rejoice heartily in the Lord, in our God who is the joy of our hearts. Let us imagine the abundant rains to be abundant torrents of love and grace flowing from her heart, the heart of a Mother, Mother of life, NOTRE DAME DE VIE.
