Tropical Storm Ophelia and Mary


Coincidence or another sign?


Ophelia means "help" or "succor"...interesting when you link this to the area threatened by Tropical Storm Ophelia -- St. Augustine, FL which coincidently was founded on September 8th, 1565 (anniversary tomorrow)... the feast of the birth of Mary. The area is also dominated by a beautiful shrine marking the spot, including a large cross and chapel of Our Lady of LaLeche (nursing mother).

Given that Our Lady of Prompt Succor is the patroness against storms and of New Orleans---add to this St. John Bosco's prophecy (alluded to last month on this blog, during the Pope's boat trip in Cologne)...where a future pope linked the barque of Peter to a pilar on which stood Our Lady Help of Christians (prompt succor is another rendering of this title) might we see some unraveling of a mystery before our eyes to prepare?

  2. .... Thanks again Michael for keeping us duly informed and noting spiritual connections , all around us !
    Coincidences !? --NOT ! The LORD tells us plainly in HIS writings through Luisa Piccaretta , that there are NO coincidences . All things work together for good , according to HIS WILL ! [It's our perception's in our human will that lead us astray and into fiction and sin] .
    We were given a time of grace to prepare , and truly have to use what little precious time we have left to pray and fast , for divine intervention . Our Blessed Mother has come to us many times over past centuries, asking for our humble participation in her longings and our LORD's sufferings. The veil's are coming off , and divine justice is due .
    As you said , we ARE seeing sacred mysteries unraveling , right before our eyes ! Do we NOW believe them , and heed HER pleadings or do we fall back into fiction, fear and chaos [ i.e. a "microcosm" in New Orleans of what could be near on a greater scale, in our nation ] !?!?!
    [katrina -to purify , ophelia - help or succor , maria - our most blessed mother / our greatest intercessor and mediatrix of all graces ! ]
    Live according to HIS WILL ! Pray , hope and fear not ! FIAT !

    P.S. tomorrow is the feast of Mary's birth and the feast of the apparitions of Our Lady of Siluva .

  3. The worst devastating national disaster in the American History
    happening at the same time side by side with the worst legislation in the American history-- Legalization of Gay marriage in California. Is this a coincident or God speaking with forces of nature. It is enough for us to ask God why and ask for his mercy at the New Orlean's experience and not to slap Him further on the face by breaking his commandment with inpunity. Yes the worst disaster in American History matches with the worst legislation in American History.

  5. The world is running out of wine let us ask Our lady on her feast day to intercede on our behalf. The compassionate God can still bring a miracle for these innocent souls who are affected by the disasters of our times.
