For the last two years I have been receiving the call in my spirit to go to the mountain and pray. I have delivered that message at many of our services and outside events throughout the country. Knowing that God was calling all of us to constant prayer but not knowing the reason. I also felt the call to change the healing day here from the last Saturday of the month to the first Saturday of the month in response to the call from our Lady of Fatima for the five first Saturdays devotion.
Approximately about a year ago I heard that voice in my spirit saying ‘Apart from me you can do nothing’ John 15:5. And now at this time I sense the call for many rosaries which is the chain of our Blessed Lady which unites us to God. This time is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to unite ourselves to Jesus through Mary. In Romans 8:28 “We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.”
I want to thank all the people who phoned in showing their concern for us in Emmanuel House. I want to assure you that we are praying for everybody and for an end to this pandemic (coronavirus) doing many hours of adoration and rosaries. This is a time of great confusion and many people are asking questions wondering what it is all about. The one thing I can tell you is ‘The Lord is calling us to prayer and fasting’. (“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10)
O blessed rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death; yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompeii, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven.
— Pope John Paul II, October 16, 2002, using the prayer of “Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary,” written by Blessed Bartolo Longoq
