“This new Trinity (Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Michael the Archangel) must be blessed and glorified on earth as is the unity of the Three Divine Persons in Heaven; blessed is the nation, blessed is the country ... which will be inflamed with this devotion!" (Jesus to Venerable Philomena in 1867) - The year Canada became a nation.
"... that Pius IX would not leave Rome and that, finally, a great nation would enter the fold of the Catholic Church." (Jesus to Venerable Philomena in 1863)
The servant of God herself, notwithstanding the insight from above, notwithstanding her experience of these divine wonders, admitted she was unable to express it. She simply declared that after receiving in her heart Jesus in the Eucharist, she felt flooded by a torrent of ineffable delight to the point of losing the use of her senses for more than 18 hours.
Her confessor, who knew the humility of the servant of God and her invincible reluctance to express the special favours from her Divine Spouse, did not hesitate to call this lapse by its real name: a celestial rapture; the servant of God later, forced through saintly obedience, admitted that she indeed had been raptured in spirit and favoured, during this rapture, with the grace of light, pressing and gentle, that determined, then and there, the complete offering of herself to Jesus through the Immaculate Mary.
She writes: “I felt a more than usual intimate sense of contemplation and I had a clear vision of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Holy Virgin Mary. At that moment, I got up from my bed and kneeled in front of an image of the Queen of heaven. Without words, I told her about the fire in my soul in this divine work that I cannot explain. Jesus then gave me a very clear and very noble manifestation of the Immaculate Conception of Mary and, at the same time, I understood the beauty of virginity and how the Holy Virgin is partial to it.

The Feasts of St. Joseph:
The primary feast of St. Joseph is March 19because it is believed that his death occurred on that date. This feast was fixed in the 15th century and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Gregory XV in 1621.
On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 1870, Pope Pius IX ordered that St. Joseph's feast day was to be a double of the first class. Holy Mother Church dedicates the entire month of March to St. Joseph, as well as the First Wednesdays.
May 1 was established as the Feast ofSt. Joseph the Workman by Pope Pius XII in 1955,chosen to coincide with Labor days in many nations. In addition there were two other feasts no longeron the official calendar.
The Eight Promises of St. Joseph
1. God will grant special graces to those that do not know me, to have a great devotion to me. 2. God will bless all who are married and the blessing in their family will be without limit. 3. Those married and without children will be blessed with offspring. 4. God will give special graces to be delivered from temptations and the attacks of the devil. 5. They shall have a good and happy death. 6. They shall overcome their trials and tribulations. 7. God shall grant them immediate help when they invoke my intercession, for the demons have extreme dread of the invocation of my name. 8. For all those who embrace a St. Joseph cenacle, they shall obtain a more fervent love for Jesus and a true devotion to Most Holy Mary.
St. Francis de Sales made St. Joseph the special Patron of the religious order he founded, the Order of the Visitation. In addition to naming at least one of his parishes in his honor, he set Joseph as the model of the interior life and contemplative prayer for his own spiritual daughters–and in particular for the novices, who were to look upon St. Joseph as their novice “master” and guide (A Manual of Practical Devotion to the Glorious Patriarch St. Joseph, translated by Fr. Patrignani, p. 78).
Made in Italy - 3 1/2" Miraculous Medal - Blue Enamel
Witness to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, originally known as the medal of the Immaculate Conception. Can be worn or held while praying ... "O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."
The Saint of Calcutta knew the importance of having Mary as Our Mother. She would often pray with the sick while holding this medal as well as press it against the person who was sick showing the importance of acknowledging Mary as Mother. Mother Teresa often would ask the sick person, "Where does it hurt?" and then she would gently press the medal on that spot. "Let Our Lady kiss where it hurts," she would be heard to say.
The Miraculous Medal for St. Teresa of Calcutta was a medal of charity – a symbol of God’s love for all people, most especially the every now moment of our lives." Tom Perna
