CROWN OF GLORY

Introduction:

In Portugal, there exists a crown of the "Blessed Mother" where Saint Pope John Paul -2 placed two bullets which struck him when he was the Pope at Saint Peter's Square on May 13, 1981.

I believe that this symbolizes Our Lady's Triumph. She will turn everything around and even the most vicious efforts of her enemies will be used to make even brighter, her "Crown of Glory".

The triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be the Eucharistic Reign of her son through the flourishing of "Perpetual Adoration" which will bring about the "New Era" a second, a new, and a more glorious earthly paradise.

SAINT POPE JOHN PAUL -2 AND THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:

This is why, Saint Pope John Paul -2 was allowed by God to be shot on May 13th. It is the Feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. The Pope is the Vicar of Christ.

The significance of him being shot on the Feast Day Of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament is this. It graphically illustrates the horror and evil of the unrelenting attacks on the Blessed Sacrament.

The World was in shock when Saint Pope John Paul -2 was shot. What would be more terrible ?? As, blatantly and tragically horrible as this scene was, of the Pope Saint John Paul -2 being shot, even worse is the unseen attacks on the "One" he serves so well, the Lord Himself in the most Blessed Sacrament.

Are we moved to do something about it ??

Denial of the Real Presence, ridicule of exposition, and specially attacks on "Perpetual Adoration" are common place. Read the Book of Revelation and the battle lines of war become clear once you know that the "Woman" is Mother Mary against the 'Dragon- Satan' fighting the "Lamb" - Jesus Christ in the most Blessed Sacrament.

Who are the Kings who fight against the "Lamb" ?? They are those in authority in the Church who fight against the Blessed Sacrament. But "The Lamb" will be victorious because he is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings and those with him are called chosen and faithful. (Revelation 17:14).

Many people - Soldiers and Ordinary Folk were killed during World War -2. How many brave men in the past century alone have fought and died for love of their country ??

How many wars have been fought for Peace and Freedom ?? and yet, look how far we are away from either.

There is only "One War" worth fighting for. "Standing up for Christ in the Blessed Sacrament today is like standing up for Christ when he was on the Cross !!".

What we need today is an "Army of Priests" who are willing to fight, by standing up and being counted for the cause of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

Conclusion :

There are 2 Catholic Cardinals from Asia, who I admire a lot. One of them is the "Holy Cardinal" of Cebu in the Phillipines and Cardinal Sin of the Archdiocese of Manila.

Cardinal Vidal is the Holy Cardinal of Cebu. Cardinal Vidal once said that because we live in "Extraordinary Times" we must be willing to do the "Extraordinary" by having "Perpetual Adoration" in order to obtain "Extraordinary Graces and Blessings from God".

Cardinal Vidal works very hard to bring about perpetual adoration in every one of his parishes. Cardinal Sin of Manila has made it the most "Eucharistic" Diocese in the world with over 100 Chapels of perpetual adoration.

God Bless them both !!
