EWTN To Air Re-Consecration of the United States And Canada to Our Lady


In Response to Pandemic, EWTN To Air Re-Consecration
Of The United States And Canada To Our Lady
Join Us After Daily Mass This Week for Special Meditations

 Irondale, AL (EWTN) – Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), announced April 23 that the U.S. bishops will join the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops to renew the consecration of the two nations to the care of our Blessed Mother. EWTN Global Catholic Network will air the brief liturgy and prayer of re-consecration at 3 p.m. ET, Friday, May 1, live from Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral in Los Angeles with Archbishop Gomez celebrating. The event will also be aired live on EWTN’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ewtnonline.

On the day of the Re-Consecration, Birmingham Bishop Robert J. Baker will celebrate the 8 a.m. ET Daily Mass and the Franciscan Friars of the Eternal Word will conduct a Rosary Holy Hour at 2 p.m. ET.

In addition, as a lead up in the week of the Re-Consecration, the Friars will lead a series of short meditations on the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady. The meditations will immediately follow the 8 a.m. ET Mass on EWTN and will air in place of a recessional hymn. These meditations will also be aired live on EWTN’s Facebook page, along with a post containing the words to each day’s meditation. (Note: Dioceses interested in setting up a cross-posting relationship on Facebook are invited to contact dcowden@ewtn.com.)

In a letter to the U.S. Bishops regarding the Re-Consecration, Archbishop Gomez said: “This will give the Church the occasion to pray for Our Lady’s continued protection of the vulnerable, healing of the unwell, and wisdom for those who work to cure this terrible virus.” Each year, the Church seeks the special intercession of the Mother of God during the month of May. “This year, we seek the assistance of Our Lady all the more earnestly as we face together the effects of the global pandemic.”

EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw said: “EWTN is honored to be airing this important Re-Consecration of the United States and Canada to Our Lady. As the bishops’ leadership demonstrates, the road out of this pandemic is through the intercession of our Heavenly Mother. May the Lord bless and protect us in these challenging times.”

EWTN Fatima Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation in Time of Pandemic


EWTN  To Air Fatima Chaplet of Adoration
And Reparation In Time of Pandemic


Irondale, AL (EWTN) – As part of an ongoing call to prayer during these troubled times, EWTN Global Catholic Network invites the public to join with the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word in praying the Fatima Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation in Time of Pandemic. The program will air at 9 a.m. ET, Friday, April 24. (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/tv/channel-finder.)

“This devotion uses prayers taught to the Fatima children, two of whom perished in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “This makes the devotion particularly appropriate and very much needed during the 2020 pandemic, which has affected so many people across the globe.”

In an August 2018 letter to the people, Pope Francis described the origins of the Chaplet, which is associated with the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima, Portugal.

“The Fatima children; Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta, said three apparitions of the Angel of Peace occurred in 1916 prior to apparitions of Our Lady which took place six times between May 13 and Oct. 13, 1917, at Cova da Iria. During the apparitions of the Angel of Peace, the children said they saw a transparent figure in the form of a young man, whiter than snow and of great beauty. He appeared over the trees and said, ‘Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.’ Then the Angel knelt and prayed, 'My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You' three times.”

To learn how to say the Chaplet and for a more complete history, please see this 2018 article from the National Catholic Register, a service of EWTN: https://bit.ly/ChapletOfReparationNCR. Then, turn to EWTN to pray the Chaplet with viewers across the world.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?


I made this video back in 2009 just a few years after becoming Catholic. 

Song: "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord"
Song by: Tatiana (I Thirst)-album
Movie Scenes: "The Passion of The Christ"
Directed by: Mel Gibson




As has become my custom, today for Good Friday I will re-watch "The Passion of the Christ" movie. I think its the best movie ever made on the life and crucifixion of Christ. 

God bless you all. 

In Christ, 

Julie
