TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HEALING  OUR WORLD IN THE NAME OF JESUS! (Part II)
Francesca Franchina , MS Ed. continues  her  discussion with Radio Maria listeners about world peace, peace in homes and the marketplace for  the benefit of  individuals, the Church and the world  through  praying the rosary, novenas and  knowledge of the MERCY  Prayers and Devotions given  to St. Faustina  and through visionaries in approved Marian Apparitions.  What is spiritual warfare and  what instruction have we been given by Jesus, and the Blessed Mother to use by  the grace and  lessons  given us by  God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit through  Saints, Scripture and the Psalms?  Last week Francesca and Dr. Doug Schoeninger,Ph. D. discussed personal healing attitudes and beliefs: “God loves me; I am marvelously made (Psalm 139); The Holy Spirit lives in me (Romans 8:26-28); Meditation  on personal healing (Phillipians 4: 6-9); The importance of safety and an Attitude of  Gratitude.   How can we  relate  these points to  healing America and  the  world situation  in a way that promotes healing for self and receiving God’s healing love to heal  the wounds of the world?
