What the Virgin Wore

I went to the Medjugorje website today to download Our Lady’s latest monthly message. At first glance, these appear to be pretty generic, but I’ve found pondering them to be a rich addition to my daily prayers.

Our Lady of Medjugorje Message, 25. June 2015: “Dear children! Also today the Most High gives me the grace to be able to love you and to call you to conversion. Little children, may God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace; not sorrow but joy and peace must begin to reign in the heart of every person – but without God you will never find peace. Therefore, little children, return to God and to prayer so that your heart may sing with joy. I am with you and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

For some reason, I got intrigued by how Mary has chosen to garb herself for various apparitions and did a lot of surfing. Many of the apparitions I looked at didn’t include a description, but these three did.

Our Lady of Guadalupe 1531 iconography

Our Lady of La Salette 1846 iconography

Our Lady of Medjugorje 1981 iconography

Another little thing I learned in my surfing is that Medjugorje is not the longest apparition. Our Lady appeared at Laus, France, 1664 and 1718 … that’s 54 years! This apparition was approved by the RCC in 2008.

Prepare for the Rapture

Daniel Bongino:  Yesterday the Supreme Court “deferred” to the people and their legislators to defend liberalism. Today the Supreme Court ignored the people and their legislators to do the same. We have become completely unmoored from any judicial or constitutional restraint.

2015_06 Religious freedom

1 Tim 1:4 Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the last times some will turn away from the faith by paying attention to deceitful spirits and demonic instructions 2 through the hypocrisy of liars with branded consciences. 3 They forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

2 Tim 3:1 But understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. 2 People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, 3 callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power. Reject them.

2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers 4 and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.

SCOTUScare

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 25, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Although the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare subsidies in a 6-3 decision together, its ruling in King v. Burwell provoked sharp condemnation from the rapier mind of Justice Antonin Scalia.

2015_06 25 Scalia words

“The Supreme Court has violated its authority, ignored its responsibilities, twisted the plain meaning of the English language, and undermined the rule of law,” Scalia wrote in a dissent offered on behalf of himself, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito.

“We should start calling this law SCOTUScare,” Scalia wrote. This ruling, coupled with a prior ruling that said the federal government had the right to force Americans to purchase health insurance – shows that the Court’s liberal bloc “is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”
