Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Your own soul a sword shall pierce, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” 
(Luke 2:35).

June 12th is the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As Christ’s heart was pierced on the Cross in death, Mary’s Immaculate Heart was pierced in spirit, fulfilling the prophecy of Simeon (Luke 2:22-35) and showing the unique mystical union of the heart of Jesus with the heart of Mary in the work of our redemption.

This union of the Two Hearts continues to offer salvation and sanctification to mankind today.

St. John Paul II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in union with the Bishops in 1984.As souls consecrated to the hearts of Jesus and Mary, we pray that our faith becomes a living witness of the love of them for all people.

We Can Do This in The New Evangelization
St. John Paul II said, “Now is the time of the New Evangelization to lead the People of God in America to cross the threshold of the third millennium with renewed hope.”
As he looked at an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Pope said,“I ask her to visit as a pilgrim of faith each and every diocese, parish and family in America. May she cross this continent bringing it life, sweetness and hope! May she enliven and protect the work of the New Evangelization!” This is the mission of our apostolate! 
Our Teams bring the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe into public places in answer to St. John Paul II’s call that she may “cross this continent bringing it life, sweetness and hope!”
On this Memorial, I ask you to be in solidarity with us and support our Apostolates. Our support has dwindled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, many of our supporters take well-deserved summer vacations, which causes our support to reach its lowest levels of the year. So, we would really appreciate your help to keep our Missionary Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jesus King of All Nations and Our Lady of America on their Visitations throughout America.Please click here to learn how your donations support our mission.We need your help to continue this important work of the New Evangelization.

Pope Francis Calls Us to Actualize the New Evangelization
Like St. John Paul II, Pope Francis is calling us to “break out of comfortable and routine modes of living” and to “go out into the byroads”. Pope Francis said that if we do not proclaim Jesus with our lives, then the Church becomes “not the mother, but the babysitter.”Pope Francis has called us by his words and actions to go out to the marginalized people – the poor, the sick, the disabled, the elderly and the prisoners.
Our Teams are not “babysitters”. They bring their Mother in her Missionary Image to these marginalized people in hospitals, nursing homes, abortion centers and prisons. This may be difficult for a person to do alone, but with our Mother and our Teams it’s easy!We need more workers in the vineyard. We need more people to help us to follow the call of St. John Paul II and Pope Francis to live out the New Evangelization.

30th Anniversary of Visitations of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe

On June 14, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Visitation of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the International Rosary Congress at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The Missionary Images are exact 4’ x 6’ digital replicas of the original miraculous image that Our Lady of Guadalupe left on St. Juan Diego’s tilma in Mexico. The Rector of the Basilica blessed them for conversions and reverence for life in the New Evangelization. We also have smaller images available for Visitations to your home or parish.We hope to raise at the very least $30,000 in honor of our 30th anniversary through 1200 donations averaging $25 per person. Perhaps you could give more for those who don’t.

It is only through your generous support that we continue our work to promote Visitations throughout the country so that more people become aware of the great works of God. 
So, I ask you to please prayerfully consider giving the most generous amount you can todayIt is only together that we can build the Culture of Life and a Civilization of Love for which Saint John Paul II prayed. 
We remember your intentions in our daily prayers and Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe, our weekly holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament and in our special monthly Masses.

Your help has been invaluable to us. Thank you. May the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary bless and watch over you and your loved ones.
