a vision late in the 1800s brings a new prayer


  20th CENTURY HISTORY INDEX 
 According to a vision given to Pope Leo XIII late in the 1800s, this century is given to the devil. We see two major world wars along with Korea and Viet Nam. In the 60s prayer is removed from school followed by a fast breakdown of morality. Killing the unborn becomes commonplace.

PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
+
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.   Amen. 
 +
People are more and more confused by New Age practices and attitudes which have been around since Adam and Eve. The Rosary which is truly the prayer of peace, has fallen into disuse and the effects are overwhelming. Church attendance and family values suffer. Godless people commit horrendous atrocities against people of Sudan and Bosnia. This age is known as the 'Culture of Death'.

MARY VISITS HER CHILDREN
In Fatima, the aroma of roses is present. Mary has a Rosary in her hand and calls herself ‘The Lady of the Rosary’ and encourages the children to ‘Say the rosary every day, to obtain peace for the world and an end to the war.’ The children, saddened by the anger their parents have shown over the story of the first apparition, decide not to take their usual short cut in saying only the titles ‘Our Father’ and ‘Hail Mary’ on each bead of the Rosary any more. They agree to say the whole prayer on each bead in hopes of making things better.
+
 WHY MEDJUGORJE?
In history, before great conflict or famine, Mary prophetically comes to console.  In the 20th century, Mary visits her children more than ever before. Starting in 1981, Medjugorje becomes a major pilgrim site.  In an interview on CNN during the war in Yugoslavia (90s), Fr Joso, pastor of St James where Mary is appearing, comments on how the people wondered why she chose their village - 'but now we know.'

ECCLESIAL MOVEMENTS
& NEW COMMUNITIES
And in this century there is an upswing in the activity of the Holy Spirit. Inspired lay and religious groups begin new communities and ecclesial movements and are noted by the Vatican. Gifts become manifest in what are called the last days.  All religions are feeling the movement of the Spirit - the Spirit favors none. In the Catholic Church, this Holy Spirit presence brings the faithful to an even stronger awareness of the Eucharistic Presence of the Lord - and the rosary comes out of dusty boxes and drawers to be prayed once again.  A new century and millennium bring promise of a new springtime in the year of the great Jubilee.

1998 - EVE OF PENTECOST - ROME
