For the 9-day fasting novena you will be assigned a single day of 2011 in which your fast will be offered to bind satan from his activity for the Nation and the world. You can call Caritas of Birmingham to receive the day your fast will sponsor. Your day is assigned in the order you call us. You may call 205-672-2000 to be given the day of 2011 that your 9-day fasting novena, beginning October 25, 2010, and finishing November 2, 2010, will cover. It is important you receive a day so that we can be sure all 365 days of 2011 will be covered by an individual with a 9-day fast. Again the 9-day fasting novena is October 25-November 2, 2010, and your assigned day for 2011 is not a fast day, rather the day that you are assigned in 2011 to be covered in prayer by your October 25–November 2, 2010, 9-day fast.

PRAYER FOR THE FASTING NOVENA

 

O Queen of Heaven, we unite ourselves with others across the land in a holy fast, reminiscent of the so many times ancient Israel cried out in repentance to their God. By their history, we know God the Most High will hear our cry. We humble ourselves because of our sins. Seek, Mary our Queen, on our behalf, that the Lord not look upon our sins, but the love we show Him through this fast. Persuade Him to not only forgive but also forget and blot out our sins, that through Your hands we will grow close to Him and know Him intimately as a Father, as our Protector.

O Mary, these days of fasting we wish to empty our hearts of everything useless. Cleanse us. Let this fast purify us and atone for everything that has defiled us. O Mary, Queen of Peace, let our hearts be refilled through Your hands with whatever graces are necessary to reconcile us, our families, and our nation back to God. We wish also to atone for any wrongs in advance for each day of the coming year 2011, so that all be consecrated to Your Immaculate Heart, to purify the body of believers in order for the rebirth and the ushering in of a new springtime for Christianity in our beloved Nation.

We seek the healing of our hearts of all spiritual disease and illness and for You to fill our hearts especially during December 8th–12th. Please, please, dear Mother, please grant us these requests, and grant the three special intentions of the Community of Caritas as well as my own personal intentions of (name your personal intentions) along with the quick, successful conclusion of Retooling The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages………I especially offer _________ ____, 2011 (Day assigned by Caritas)*, that on that day the plans of satan against ourselves, our family, and nation will be thwarted and grace will abound for conversion across our land.

We consecrate our hearts to You, Mary, and to Jesus. We want to give You and Jesus “title” of not only our souls but also our bodies, as well as all we possess. We know Your words of January 1, 2001, when You revealed that satan was completely unchained, were followed with what our response should be. It was to give ourselves to You and Jesus completely, as a possession into Your and His hands, through the formal daily act of consecration, thereby, owned by You and Your Son, we are afforded protection through being Your possession.

January 1, 2001

“My dear children, now that when satan is unchained, I desire you to be consecrated to My Heart and the Heart of My Son Jesus. I bless you with my Motherly Blessing.”
 

We, therefore, present to You the intention to empty our hearts that You may refill them, as well as Caritas’ intentions and our personal intentions through this nine-day fast, prayers and consecrations, in order that You will present this novena with your Son before the throne of God. We ask for an unleashing of grace to be poured out upon ourselves, our families, our nation, and upon the countless numbers who are in need of conversion throughout our land, and Your intentions for all of the above intentions. Please intercede for us as our Mother and as our Queen. Amen.

Pray Also Everyday the Consecration Prayers to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Below:

 

Consecration to Jesus

Sacred Heart

O Jesus, we know that You are
merciful and that You gave
Your Heart for us, that was
crowned with thorns by our sins;
We know that even today You
are still ¬pleading with us so that
we will not be lost. Jesus,
remember us when we are in sin.

By means of Your Sacred Heart,
grant us, that all men love one
another; Cause hatred to
disappear from among men.

Show us Your Love,
for we all love You,
and want You to protect us
with your Shepherd’s Heart
and free us from all sin.

Jesus, enter into each heart.
Knock on the door of our hearts.
Be patient and unwearied with us.
We are still closed, since we still have
not yet understood Your love for us.

Knock persistently and grant,
O Good Jesus, that we open our hearts
to You, at least when we will have
remembered the passion
You suffered for us. Amen.

Consecration to Mary

alt

O Immaculate Heart of Mary,
overflowing with goodness,
show us Your love for us.
May the flame of Your heart,
O Mary, descend upon all mankind.

We love You so.
Impress true love in our hearts
that we may have a continuous
desire for You.

O Mary, meek and humble of heart,
remember us when we are in sin.
You know that all men sin.
Grant to us by means of
Your Immaculate Heart, to be
healed from every spiritual illness.

In doing so, we then will be able
to gaze upon the goodness
of Your Maternal Heart,
and thus be converted through
the flame of Your Heart. Amen.

  1. Thank you for this work.Now, we (Christians, specially catholics) should stay clear of the words “left” and “right” seen as a set of beliefs for an entire group of people. If I called “leftist” someone who is anti-religion or anti-God, for example, then when I reject his view as “leftist”, I also reject the idea of compassion the person may stand for as well. My message as a Christian becomes contradictory and my evangelization efforts ineffective. In fact I risk to become more of an obstacle to the spreading of faith, in that regard. That’s why we should always be extra careful in being respectful, and maybe, sometimes, keep an open mind. Our witnessing is not so much telling the world what to do, it is showing them who we are. And that is actually the work of the Holy Spirit. So I pray, I study, but I must pray again and humbly. In my prayer I must present those contradictions to God and ask for His light, humbly. I must avoid clinging to and making absolute any belief. Thank you.

  2. Thank you for your explantation pope Benedicts XVI resignation. I am surprised the poor man lasted so long, being constantly attacked by the devil and persons inside the Vatican. God bless and keep Benedict safe and healthy enough so as to complete his work.

  3. Excellent article! I hope many many people will read this. I pray many will turn to our Blessed Mother, and through Her love for Her Son and Her children, in prayer, we can change the momentum of evil. Christ’s Peace to all.

  5. This article about Pope Benedict should help us understand the times we are in. Mary has asked us to fast, say the Rosary, penance and turn back to God. There have been floods and other things of nature and we just ignore them and do not return back to God and the Blessed Virgin Mary. We will do it tomorrow. We should start today and not put it off. I will do my best to start. I have started reading “They Fired the First Shot,” about the first 200 pages. So much that I have read has been in the media. I thank God & the Blessed Virgin for A Friend of Medjugorje. In 1987 I was divorced and information from Medjugorje has helped me through some rough times. I will include in my prayers for the clergy and religious. God Bless you all and thanks for God’s work you are doing. After reading the article I can see things in a different light. Charlotte

    Just two things that came to me when I was reading this article and looking at the picture of lightning – 1. I read somewhere that when “the pastor would be struck”, the sheep will be scattered. In this picture, the (pastor pope) the Vatican has been “struck” by lightning.2. While I was looking at the clock, it came to me that we really are are nearly at the “hour” – of what chastisement? – change ? – war?

  8. Barbara Downer

    I am so very grateful for all the information that I am reading.I thank Almighty God and Our Blessed Mother for all the warnings She is giving us. Through Her many messages and your writings I have become aware of the great danger the world is in. I thank God for HIS Mercy and LOVE. In truth I am without words to express my feelings. Thank you, thank you!!

  9. Maravilhoso comentário, realmente precisamos de muito discernimento a luz do evangelho e das mensagens da Gospa para podermos compreender os planos de Maria, penso que as chances que a mãe nos dá de entendermos os acontecimentos futuros já são muitas. Fiquem na Paz

  10. Peace be with you!Heavenly and Gracious Father, I am in total Thanksgiving to you for allowing Our Mother to help me to consecrate my heart to Your Holy Hearts. You truly know the desires of my heart. One’s tongue is powerful; I have stated for over seven years when asked, “How are you?” I have consistently been allowed to say, “Blessed and Highly Favored” and now You have made me so. I have given up my free will and asked to share Your Holy Will for my life, Amen. With Your Holy Desire to equip me with Holy Strength and Holy Courage, I have been willing and able to fight satan. Oh he is strong, but Your Holy Word is immeasurably stronger. Thank you both for allowing me to be in Your Holy Army and to serve and to pray 24/7. I Love You Beyond Measure; I know that You Love me too…….His and Hers (Our Lady’s),Katherine Joan TorresYour Holy Daughter and Holy Servantby Your Holy GraceBorn: 11/24/195731 yrs. before the Apparition in the Fieldin Birmingham, Al 11/24/1988

  12. Dear Friends of Medjugorje, thank you for the inspirational story which was well guided. The picture of the lightening reminds me of September 2012 when I went on a pilgramage to Ngome Tabenacle Of Our Lady Most High. I was in an Adortion Mass led by Father Wayne. I began to pray. I said, “Here I Am Lord, I’ve come a long way to meet You. Where are You?” I was sitting at the window. Next thing, the lightening flashed. I looked up at the sky and asked, “Was that You, Lord?” Before I knew it, the Holy Spirit was upon me. My hands began to raise uncontrollably. The most beautiful presence was upon me. I had so many beautiful experiences. God showed me that there are many wicked and evil people on the earth who will want His forgiveness but it will be too late. Fast and Pray now. I’ve experienced what it is like to be in His presence, Awesome. The striking of the Vatican was just to remind us that Yes, he is still around. He is just replacing the Pope until the new one is elected. Jesus

  13. Wonderful article. I was praying for my children one afternoon because my youngest child was really misbehaving. Shortly afterwards lightning struck our house and knocked four light bulbs out in our living room and our outdoor pool light but we were fine. We felt the electric shock in our fingertips and were left trembling. I was so grateful to God and realized that we were really protected.

  14. ZENIA MASCARENHAS

    THANK YOU FOR THE INSIGHT ON THE PAPACY. BUT I BEG TO DIFFER DEAR FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE.THE HOLY FATHER DID NOT RESIGN OF HIS OWN ACCORD. HE HAS BEEN PRESSURISED TO STEP DOWN BY HIS ARCH-RIVAL ANGELO SODANO AND HIS COLLEGE OF CARDINALS. THE WHOLE CONCLAVE WHICH IS COMING UP IS NOTHING BUT AN EYE WASH. AN ANTI-POPE IS ALREADY BEING DELIBERATED UPON. OUR VICAR HAS BEEN LAID LOW AND WAS NOT ALLOWED TO COMPLETE HIS MISSION THE RELEASE OF THE FIFTH AND FINAL DOGMA. SHOUT IT OUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!! HE HAS GONE INTO DISGUISE INTO RETIREMENT. IT IS OF HIM THAT MY PATRON SAINT PIUS THE TENTH SPOKE OF SEEING IN A VISION IN HIS LIFETIME.”I SAW ONE OF MY SUCCESSORS TAKING TO FLIGHT OVER THE BODIES OF HIS BRETHREN. HE WILL TAKE REFUGE IN DISGUISE SOMEWHERE AND AFTER A SHORT RETIREMENT HE WILL DIE A CRUEL DEATH. WE ALL WATCHED HIS LAST HELICOPTER RIDE TO CASTELGANDOLFO BUT WE WILL NOT BE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO SEE HIM RIDE BACK TO THE MONASTERY ON VATICAN GROUNDS.THE TIMEIS RIPE WHEN THE REVOLT BEGINS

  15. Friends of Medjugorje, I am a deaf catholic and don’t know where to begin, but I tell you this one thing. that I have come a long way to say that you have my support for this website 100%, stand behind Holy Mary’s messages 100% even I don’t understand fully but do my best as I can. And also you have helped me along the way. Sadly that I am not able to understand WAVE on the radio. even I could hear some, let alone to rely on closed captioned (cc) that you may have seen on T.V. in homes or other places. So therefore, I am coming to join you in July for Consecration for the first time. Now let us fight for what the republic, not democracy, America stands for in God’s name and for country’s motto “in God We Trust”.

  16. many thanks dear friends of our lady for your help to enligten.O mama mary thanks for your motherly heart to lead us to Jesus . Omama weneed you very much. and am very sorry I have no that fired book Iam not able to have it o how i could be gratefull if one could send me one: any way God reward you .union in prays even for the work of chosing new Pope . with love .mt please pray for me to convert. thanks

  17. Very well written article….it was long yet very enlightening…You were really guided by our Lady of Medjugorje……since last month I am inspired by the messages of our Lady….and now my life has changed….pray for me too that I will be converted totally to God…..how I wish someday I can visit Medjugorje as pilgrim……..More Power…..

  18. This is a time for profound humility for everyone. Pride is rampant among the naysayers, who do not trust the Church’s teachings or leaders. Let us remember the sin of our first parents in Eden, when they chose to believe evil rather than God. Thy were struck with fear because of their sin. God does not bring fear but only peace through our Lady Queen of Peace. Take counsel only from those wise in the ways of Our Lady and your hearts will not be gripped with fear. Confusion and fear are tools of the devil to turn our eyes from the truth. Keep your eyes on Mary, and trust in our Church. Pray the rosary daily for this peace and Our Lady will always lead you to her Son, Jesus. “Let not our hearts be troubled.”

  19. Thank You Mother for being with us now and always! We Love You! We Love You Jesus! Thanks to A Friend of Medjugorje for his enlightening and enlightened writing! GOD BLESS THE CHURCH and God bless us all!Love Glaphyra

  20. DAMIEN FERNANDES.

    AN ARTICLE THAT IS SO WELL WRITTEN, THAT ONE COMES TO KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE POPE, THE REASONS WHY HE GAVE UP THE CHAIR OF ST. PETER, THE REASON OUR LORD HAS SENT HIS DEAR MOTHER TO CALL THE PEOPLE BACK TO THE LORD, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. OUR LORD CAME DOWN TO EARTH, SUFFERED AND DIED, PAID THE FULL RANSOM FOR OUR SINS, HE WANTS ALL MANKIND TO BE WITH HIM IN HEAVEN, IT IS NOW UP TO MAN TO BE SAVED OR BE DAMNED FOR ALL ETERNITY IN HELL.HAVE A PRAYERFUL WEEKEND.GBU.DAMIEN.

  21. I think Diane Sawyer should seriously start thinking about the moment she comes face to face with her Maker! because the time is approaching for her just as it is for all of us!

  22. Thank you, today watching Joan Lewis EWTN Rome Dispatch Report she shared; 2-28-2013 144 Cardinals in attendance the last day ie 12×12=144;she reported 2005 -117 Cardinals voting2013 -114 voting;Cardinal Bertoni- Carmalengo and Vergano (?), Deanthese 2 Cardinals will lead the Conclave.

  23. As the Holy Father finshed giving his final Apostolic blessing Castelgondolfo, the clock showed 6.40pm local time, the exact time that Our Lady appears to Marija, Ivan and Vicka every day.

  24. Veronica Torres

    Thank you so much for this article, deep in my heart I feel something, and it is some thing that tell me that things are not good for the world, I can sense the spiritual battle we are fighting. I also think that the lightning at the Vatican is a sign, but most of people tell me I am crazy, even at some Catholic Programs tell us not to see it as a sign. I have tried to live my Catholic religion the best I can for the past 6 years, had a very strong conversion, this brought me so close to God and to our Blessed Mother and to Jesus. So, I thank you for this message, because, I was so confused, and have asked God for guidance, I can feel so many evil things in the world, and people see them as the best things for them, it scares me, but again, people think I am crazy. Yes, I defended our Pope several times, as you mention, they think he is out of time, when all he wanted to do was to bring us back to God. Let us continue praying, and be prepared for the out coming facts, May our Lord

  25. Shirley Clarke

    Thank you for your writings, I needed to read these wonderful words from Our Lady and Jesus. God bless.

  26. Thank you so very, very much for your dedication to Mary’s directions to her son, Jesus, our saviour with her Mother’s care, devotion and obedience to the Father. Thank heaven!

  27. Many have begun a novena of prayer beginning March 1st for the selection of the next pope:Lord Jesus, Son of the Father,send down Your Spirit over the conclave. Let the Holy Spirit inspire the hearts of the cardinals, that they may choose the man most pleasing to You,as Successor of Peter and Your Vicar on earth. May Mary, Your Mother and Mother of the Church be our Advocate. Amen.

  28. Absolute Truth and Nothing but the Truth. This beautiful article, analysing the present events in the Universal Church is certainly Inspired by God’s Holy Spirit. We shall soon know the Truth and the Truth will set us FREE..Alleluia. Praise God.

  29. I am so pleased that A Friend of Medjugorje can explain the holy “nuts and bolts” of what is taking place. It gives me hope. Though recognizing the profound truth on every page, I was only able to read halfway through They Fired the First Shot…it scared me badly. I’m praying for courage.

  30. I agree that God is sending us signs through nature, the Blessed Mother, and so many untimely losses of life…I pray for all unbelievers especially those within my own family…I pray for those who walk the path of worldly things…I pray that God will fill their minds and hearts with His presence and mercy for when that great, glorious day comes!

  31. Please remove the first footnote, because it is not correct ! Our Lady “Gospa” changes the hour of her apparition: from 1-st of May to the Feast of The Holly Cross in September, she comes one hour earlier than in the rest of the year. You should know that. Be more humble and obedient to God’s word ! Don’t let Satan take advantage of your boldness and pride ! God bless you !

  32. Vincent Machira

    I thank the Almighty God for this special favour on me that I am able to receive these messages. i just would like to call upon every Catholic world over to pray and pray for the church and her leaders.

  33. Sandy Brown Wyeth

    Amazing explanation. Thank you for your incredible insight. I am also thankful that I am witnessing these times.

  34. Thank you for your article. I am a huge fan of Medjugorje, making 2 trips to Medjugorje %u2013 one with Caritas. You may not be aware of %u201CThe Book of Truth%u201D which predicted the Pope’s resignation.Please read our Blessed Mother’s message of Wednesday January 18, 2012 at the following link.Virgin Mary: Wicked plan within The Vatican to destroy the Catholic Church%u201CThe Book of Truth%u201D is the book that was prophesized in Daniel 10:21 which would be opened in %u201CThe Time Of The End.%u201DThe messages that are contained in %u201CThe Book of Truth%u201D are from Jesus, God and ourBlessed Mother. They are given to a woman in Europe for her to publish %u2013 verbatim. These messages are for all people of all religions and are given to all of mankind in preparation for %u201CThe Warning%u201D which will be followed by the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. These events are predicted to happen shortly.As Jesus states in His message of Saturday December 3, 2011Prophets to prepare for My Second Coming%u201CProphets were sent into the world to herald My birth.

    I WISH TO BE THERE DEAR HOLIEST MUM,I DON’T HAVE $, BUT MY HEART STRONGLY EAGER TO MEET YOU AT MEDJUGORJE, MUM PLEASE HELP ME TO BE THERE TO SEE YOU AND MEETING YOU WITH YOUR LOVED ONES. I HOPE YOU ANSWER MY PRAYER, YOUNG JESUS OF PRAGUE I PRAY THAT YOU KEEP ME A STAY TILL TIME COME FOR THE APPARITION. AMEN

  36. Tessa Schifanella

    I am blown away by the profoundness of this writing. I was blessed to be on the Field with the community as Cardinal Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, but I had forgotten many of the details of the day. I am so grateful for the archives at Caritas for reminding me. I watched the news waiting for His Holiness Benedict XVI to make his final public address with anxiety as I needed to leave for an appointment. I was aware of the time, but hadn’t realized it was Apparition time. I am amazed at how “A Friend of Medjugorje” pieces together all of the events and shows me what I am unable to see for myself. Thank you.

  37. Thank you Caritas; for the insight to the truth concerning our great Pope Benedict; even I as a converted pagan,love this Pope;and knew his fight was just beginning,and his love for us as Our Lady Queen of Peace,is on going. The Pope in prayer is a powerful advocate to our salvation;and a great benefit to the next Pontifical movement to defeat satan,and his misfit’s. I believe it was a strong defensive move,made to reflect upon the Body of Christ,and the welfare of the Church’s need in Prayer, to God be the Glory.

  38. Loretta Gilbert

    I cannot understand how the Pope and Previous Pope knew of the Priests that molested young children and did not remove them from the Priesthood and punish them instead of moving them to another Parish where they continued to do this to children over and over. These children were harmed for life.

  39. I was emotional reading it and my heart full of gratitude to God for His unconditional love for the whole world and for the gift of our Saviour Jesus and our unfailing advocate, our Blessed Mother. We continue to pray for more divine grace and wisdom as nothing is impossible with God.

  40. I really do understand this so much more now, thank you.Also, 11th February 2013 – 155 years since Our Lady first appeared to St Bernadette in Lourdes!!God bless you all xxxxxxxxxxx

  41. Thank you so much for this very inspiring message from Our Lady & Our Blessed Lord. Sometimes things are confusing and scarey, BUT when Our Lady says, “Be Not Afraid”, I feel good because I know she and Our Lord are watching over us. I will continue to pray for Our Lady’s intentions and all of those who do not believe in Her or Our Blessed Lord. Thank you for all that Caritas does too. You give us hope. Blessings, peace and love, Shirley

  43. Dear friends at Caritas, I was praying at apparition time. It also happened to be at that moment that the pope was giving his last message as pope.I prayed for the pope, the cardinals and the new pope. And then I selected a random message. This made me shiver!!! Unbelieveable! September 16, 1983 This message was given to Jelena for the Pope: “Pray, pray, pray! Do not be discouraged. Be in peace because God gives you the grace to defeat satan.” “In my messages, I recommend to everyone, and to the Holy Father in particular, to spread the message which I have received from my Son here at Medjugorje. I wish to entrust to the Pope the word with which I came here:’MIR'(peace), which he must spread everywhere. Here is a message which is especially for him: that he bring together the Christian people through his word and his preaching; that he spread, particularly among the young people, the messages which he has received from the Father in his prayer, when God inspires him.”

  44. <- Continued from above ->Our Lady is always with us, guiding us, giving us peace through her messages. I felt as if Our Lady was letting me know she hears our prayers, my prayers! I had just read Our Friend of Medjugorje’s writing on the pope and I was amazed to see the pope speak his last statement as pope, at apparition time. There are no coincidences! With the love of Our Lady, Karen

Here is a message which is especially for him: that he bring together the Christian people through his word and his preaching; that he spread, particularly among the young people, the messages which he has received from the Father in his prayer, when God inspires him.”

  46. Very clear messages. Thank you! It is really good to understand what is happening. Where do I get the book They Fired the First Shot? Thanks!

  47. Thank you for this inspiring and insightful writing. God is in control with Mary as His spokesperson, it is an historic time to be alive. I pray that I will be up to the task. “That I might be worthy of the promises of God”

  48. What an incredible time we live in. And what a truely incredible writing….who would ever imagine that God would even send us a prophet.

  49. Just witnessed on TV when the pope said his goodbye at the window of his new place, it was 5:40pm Rome time. He was only on the balcony for 2 minutes and he said his goodbye at exactly 5:40pm! This was really interesting after learning that he started his pontificate at exactly 5:40 PM.

  50. Now, I understand. It is beautiful that you said, ‘The Holy Father did not quit. He did not give up, no more than Jesus did when He often left the crowds to go to the mountains to pray by Himself. Benedict said: “With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.”Our beloved Pope, Benedict, will pray by himself for the Church, for the salvation of the world, just as the good LORD Jesus did as ‘He retired to the mountain to pray’. Like a good disciple, Pope Benedict the Beloved, is just doing what he sees the Master did.Thank you for a very insightful exposition. Let us all cling to the hands of Our Blessed Mother as she leads us to Her Son.

  51. Thank you! I don’t watch much tv so I only receive hear say news. It is good to hear the truth! I have only recently started following Caritas, I plan on becoming a Field Angel in March, I am reading “They Fired the First Shot” now and have read “It Ain’t Gonna Happen”, and I have been listening to your CD’s that I received!

  52. Thank you! I don’t watch much tv so I only receive hear say news. It is good to hear the truth! I have only recently started following Caritas, I plan on becoming a Field Angel in March, I am reading “They Fired the First Shot” now and have read “It Ain’t Gonna Happen”, and I have been listening to your CD’s that I received! Your team has changed my life, I have more insight and I see things more clearly now! I hope to see Caritas in person one day. Thanks again for this article, our Church deserves to have the truth spoken!!!God BlessPatrick

  53. Such insight in this writing, thank you. I have just witnessed history when Our Holiness left the Vatican for the last time as a Pope. It was with tears I witnessed such humility in the step he took and all I thought was “he did all for the Glory of God”! Thank you, Lord!!

  54. This writing articulates what so many of us feel regarding our beloved Pope Benedict and the future of the Holy Church. Medjugorje brings hope to the world and with the help of our Blessed Mother may Our Friend of Medjugorje continue to teach, inspire and encourage us with his writings and books. Thank you and may our Mother continue to bless you.
