From ‘The Life of Ven. Mary Crescentia Hoss’:
“On New Year’s day, [Saint] Crescentia had, according to her wont, made a New Year’s gift of herself to the Lord, offering herself with extraordinary fervor as a holocaust, to be immolated according to the divine will, and consumed in the holy fire of suffering, of crosses, and of love. She fell into an ecstasy, and heard from the lips of Christ these words:
“This thine offering pleases Me; but thou must know that
I do not allow Myself to be surpassed in love.”
Then showing her His opened heart, He said:
“Behold My heart, laid open by love;
I give it thee as a habitation, a security,and an asylum against all thine enemies.”“
Happy New Year, dear reader! And happy 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance at FATIMA!
Pray much for the Church and the world. The message of Fatima has not been heeded.
Update: I am currently working on an article about consecration to Our Lady. Due to a want of time, this might take a while to complete.
For now, let these words suffice:
“How can the world be saved, from the disaster that is about to crash down upon the misleading nations, if man does not repent of his errors and failings? The only salvation is a complete repentance and return to God, and a true devotion to my Immaculate Heart, particularly in the daily recitation of my Rosary.”
– Our Lady to Bl. Elena Aiello (d. 1961)
