// September 4th, 2013 // No Comments » // Francesca and Friends

Francesca Franchina MS Ed. continues her talks with Fr. Tom Alkire, O. CARM of Los Angeles, CA about the Gift of Good Health and Healing; Adoration of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament and its merits; the intercession of and graces bestowed on Mother Mary and the blessings of sacramentals including scapulars, medals, pictures, statues, oil, water, and blessed salt. Mary’s Queenship is based on her Divine Motherhood, and Father explains how The Queen Mother participates in our rebirth in The Holy Spirit on a daily basis and how Mary’s Queenship flows from the Motherhood of God. In Akita, Japan, she offered her tears 101 times sorrowing for the salvation of souls, many of whom would be lost. At Soufanieh, Damascus, Syria, she bestowed the fountain of oil (symbolizing the blood of Jesus), which oozes from her icon and flowed upon the hands of Myrna Mazzour; Hear how the Queen of Angels and her host of angels help us in our spiritual battles assuming our humility and simplicity asking for their help. Hear why and how we receive her armor of protection via her Brown Scapular and the Holy Rosary. (Wisdom: 5:l7-20; Echo of Ephesians 6;13-16.) The October 13th Marian appearance at Fatima in 1917 gave deeper evidence and understanding of the need of the Brown Scapular and Rosary in our time. Use of the miraculous oil from Our Lady of Soufanieh has been applied in faith to many in Syria who were healed. Marian apparitions involve Our Lady’s messages of unifying the People of God by much prayer and sacrifice including ecumenical outreach honoring the Virgin Mary and appearances in the Holy Land recently which brought together Jewish, Islamic and Christian people of all ages in Bethlehem and Jerusalem who were praying. Hear about Fr. Tom’s experience in the healing of families and the use of the blessed water & salt (her tears) and the blessed oil signifying the Blood of Jesus & Mary. Mary gave us The Peace Plan from Heaven…Live it! Pray for peace.
