As we contemplate Our Lord's sufferings and Passion this Lent 2019, it is so important to remember that Our Lord suffered NOT just at the end of His Life, but throughout it - perfectly and completely!
In this little blog today, we contemplate Him as He appeared to Mother Mariana so many years ago- over 400 - as a youth - as a deacon of the Church dressed in rose-colored vestments offering His Life for the salvation of all of us - but in these apparitions, it seems as though He appealed to the young people and targeted them to remind them that even as a teen-ager- He had offered His Life for Mankind!
We were given the novena to the Divine Child many, many years ago- all the way back in 2007. We had translated it and intended to publish it but life with all of its distractions, births, deaths etc... we had laid it aside- not intentionally, but as we had wanted to have it reprinted some day... We were always hoping for better days with money in our coffers, but that has never happened -so we make it available to you this Lent to contemplate and we ask that you offer a little prayer for us- our Apostolate and our family as we have been asked to carry a heavy cross this Lent!
Please pray for us!
Child Jesus of Pichincha, have mercy on us!
“Lift your eyes now and look at the Pichincha Mountain, where you will see this Divine Infant, Whom I carry in my arms, crucified. I deliver Him to the Cross so that He might always give good successes…”
Our Lady of Good Success
As drops of blood fell from the wounds on His hands, feet and forehead, He fixed His gaze on the country and said,
“I can do no more to show My love for you. Ungrateful souls, who repay the great love and attentions of My Heart with contempt, sacrileges and blasphemies… Keep watch in My Company. Do not be overcome with the sleep of indifference of God, Who loves you so much…...”
The Divine Crucified Christ Child of Pichincha
“On these pictures should be written the very words that you heard from the lips of your Crucified Love on Pichincha Mountain. These pictures will travel throughout the whole world and will be the source of holy inspirations but their origin will not be known for some time. The day will come however when it will be known.”
