Francesca Franchina MS Ed. talks with Marika Zimmerman about the attack on Christianity and what we can do about it personally and corporately. “When I return will I find anyone watching?” What did Jesus mean by this statement….and also in the Garden….”Could you not watch one hour with Me?” Jesus is calling on us to stay awake, to watch and respond In this time: THE TIME OF MERCY and This Time of Visitation. We have been given instruction from on high from The Blessed Trinity, God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and by Our Blessed Mother! IS ANYONE LISTENING AND DOING WHAT WE HAVE BEEN ASKED AND TOLD TO DO OR ARE WE ALL SLUMBERING THINKING WE CAN DO NOTHING OF IMPORT, WHILE THE WORLD IS CAVING IN TO EVIL AND THE DARKNESS through distraction, drugging of the physical, mental and spiritual parts of our beings? The Fatima Message of our Lady from May-October 1917 still stands and most Catholics do not even know about it. THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA is THE PEACE PLAN FROM HEAVEN! The MERCY MESSAGE given to St. Faustina by Jesus Himself in 1930’s still stands! Messages to St. Catherinee of Siena, St. Teresa of Avila, Sr. Josefa Menendez, Sr. Consolata Bertrone, Bl. Wm. Joseph Chaminade, St. Padre Pio, St. John Paul II, St. John XXIII in our own time cry out for souls to Repent, Repair, Renew and be counted among the saints personally and communally.

This program began a four part series on the Devotion to the Holy Face. This remarkably powerful devotion was actually instituted by Veronica when she wiped the face of Jesus as He climbed to His crucifixion on Calvary. The program goes on to discuss four other instances in the history of the Church where this Devotion either gained great popularity or was actually re-instituted by Christ. The first was in the early 1840’s through the revelations to a Carmelite Sister named Mary of St Peter. The promises and the power of this devotion were offered to combat both blasphemy and the sins against the holy day of Sunday. The devotion was then reintroduced by St Therese of Lisieux around the late 1800’s, again in the mid 1940’s through an Italian Mother Pierina of the Immaculate Conception, and finally, in our own time through a man name Gordon Deery in Montreal, who carries on this world-wide ministry even today.
