ROSARIES DEDICATED TO OUR LADY IN MARCH: - Annunciation, Our Lady of
Annunciation (25th)

 
The HEAVENS DECLARE the GLORY of GOD' (Psalm 19:2)
MARCH - PISCES  -  The Fishes / ' the multitudes upheld' - Aquamarine / Bloodstone:For most of our life we have marveled over the silent heavens above. On a clear night it can appear like a warm assuring blanket, even in the cold. We hear stories about how each star is a tiny 'crack in the heavenly floor', shining through to remind us of God's glory. Angels in the sky!  So many things run through our heads. We forget that people for thousands of years have done the same thing. But when God created the stars, did he just toss them randomly into space - or did he write a message of hope and salvation for all his children to see from the days of the fall of Adam?  Scripture tells us he placed and named each of the stars. Why?

++WHAT IS BLOODSTONE?
+Hhow does it relate to Christ?
     OW
12 SIGNS, 12 TRIBES, 12 STONES, 12 STARS
How better to reach all his children than through the stars above.  Did he write his love story through 12 signs of the Mazzaroth about the coming of his son before Christ was born?  He could - but did he?  Today we know there are 12 constellations in the sky, one for each of the 12 tribes of Israel - 'in the order of their birth', commanded God.  The most commonly known constellation /tribe combination is Leo (Christ), Leo the King of Judah. (the tribe of Judah).  It is the last constellation to be read in the Hebrew Calendar, Virgo (Virgin) the first.  Each tribe was also assigned a stone by God to Moses.  A stone to be worn on the ancient priests garment called the Ephod (Breastplate of Decision).  And Revelations 12: 12:1  And a great sign appeared in heaven: 'A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of (12) twelve stars.'  What does it mean?  The Church?  12 Apostles?  12 Tribes of Israel?  The circular starry story of Her son's life?  (The number 12 also symbolizes 'governmental perfection' reminding us that God is in control.)  Lets go on:

THE HEBREW CALENDAR
The first sign or constellation in the story of the coming Jewish Messiah according to the ancient Hebrew Calendar is Virgo (Virgin). It lies between LIBRA (Scales of Justice) and LEO (Christ the King). It is one of the largest constellations in the sky. Ancients saw it as the Virgin (seed of the woman, virgin birth) holding an ear of corn in her left hand (promised seed), a baby across her waist (the coming Messiah) and a branch in the right hand (shoot). See stars of Virgo below.)
+
 HE NUMBERS THE STARS - CALLS EACH BY NAME
What do these ancient star names reveal? Like Virgo, Many constellations still contain stars that carry their original names - names that point out the story of redemption in the sky. To understand better about their meaning and how they told the story, continue reading the information below.  Does the word 'Astrology' or 'Horoscope' creep into your head? Forget it, we are uncovering the lie and giving the heavens back to God. We point them out, you decide.

PSALM 147: 2-5
2 The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, 3 Heals the broken hearted, bind up their wounds, 4. Numbers all the stars, calls each of them by name. 5 Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure

LUKE 5:4-7
 4  After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch." 5 Simon said in reply, "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets."  6  When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing.7 They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them. They came and filled both boats so that they were in danger of sinking.

MATTHEW 13:47,51
  47  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. 48  When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away.49 Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. 51 "Do you understand 25 all these things?" They answered, "Yes."

JOHN 21:6-8
 6 So he said to them, "Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something." So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the number of fish.  7 So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad, and jumped into the sea. 8 The other disciples came in the boat, for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards, dragging the net with the fish.

ROMANS 8:16
 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, "Abba, 3 Father!" 16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

PSALM 19:2
The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft. 3 One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge.4 There is no word or sound; no voice is heard; 5 Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world.

WHAT DOES A CATHOLIC

~ ASTRONOMY VS ASTROLOGY ~

SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR SAY?

 
THE ZODIAC DOES NOT HAVE ROOTS IN HOROSCOPES
 What we know as the star constellations - pictures in the night sky - are often called in English the "signs of the Zodiac", is known in Hebrew as "the Mazzeroth", star constellations placed by God Himself, Job 38:31; Isaiah 13:10; Amos 5:8. This placement of the stars by God was done to tell the Gospel plan of redemption before the Bible was put into writing. The word Zodiac is a term used in astronomy, Job 9:9 (lb).  God’s message in the stars where the book of creation speaks to man of God's awesome power, Psalm 19:1–6 (Note words “speech,” “language,” “voice” in the text. Then compare verses 7–13.).
+
THE BIBLE CONDEMNS ASTROLOGY
The science of Astronomy is NEVER to be confused with ASTROLOGY which is fortune telling and the Bible condemns.  ASTRONOMY is the science dealing with the phenomena outside the earth’s atmosphere but especially concerned with the observable arrangements, motions, and characteristics of the heavenly  bodies planets, stars, asteroids and universes in space. The word “astronomy” is based on two Greek words meaning “the law of the stars.”
+
ASTRONOMY AND ITS VALUES
  Astronomy is by no means a modern science. Human beings have always been preoccupied with the heavens. The concern of the earliest civilizations with the universe appears to have been mainly intellectual curiosity and the need for navigational orientation were certainly additional factors. (Also remember the star of Bethlehem that guided the 3 kings to the child Jesus. They have been called 'readers of the stars', and 'astronomers'. The term astrologers is questionable)
+
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
The Bible provides some interesting insights about astronomy. According to Genesis 1:14–19 the sun and moon, along with the stars, have the function of giving light on the earth, determining the seasons, and functioning as “signs.” The word “season” may denote festal seasons as well as the annual seasons. The Hebrew calendar was a lunar-solar calendar similar to that of the Babylonians. Hebrew festal seasons were based on the phases of the moon. The function of the heavenly bodies as signs seems to relate to their delineation of the heavens, permitting human beings on earth to orient themselves, navigate land and the high
seas and know the stars were created by God.

 PRESENTATION

~ WHAT IS BLOODSTONE?  ~

.

BLOOD OF CHRIST
Bloodstone: Also known as Heliotrope : (Greek for Sun / turning).  It was generally called Bloodstone because of its inconsistent color, a very dark green with inclusions of blood red to brown. It is actually Chalcedony (a variety of Quartz).  The red is caused by iron oxide. It is also called the ‘Stone of Courage' and ‘Martyr’s Stone'. Because of this, it holds the symbolic meaning among Christians as the ‘Blood of Christ’. It is mined all over the world including the US (Wyoming). Other mines include Latin America, Australia, India, and China.  It is sometimes referred to as ‘Fancy Jasper’
