News from Dan Lynch Apostolates


During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.

Here in Vermont, we grasp at the seasons that change and embrace the life that the natural environment provides for us; the warmth of summer to the respite of winter. We respect the seeds that grow into food and embrace the leaves that blaze and fall.

In 2019, in the Secularist State of Vermont, the legislature passed Proposal 5 and began a movement to amend the Vermont Constitution to provide the right to abort pre-born children without any exceptions whatsoever up until birth. Let us pray the Rosary through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe to defeat abortion without exceptions!

October 5 is the Feast of St. Faustina Kowalska to whom Jesus revealed the Divine Mercy devotion.

Jesus also revealed the Jesus King of All Nations Devotion. He said, “This Devotion to me as Jesus King of All Nations is to be a companion devotion to that of my mercy as given to my beloved daughter, Faustina, and to that of my Sacred Heart as given to my beloved daughter, Margaret Mary.” (Journal 165).

“God our Father, in your loving providence you send your holy angels to watch over us. Hear our prayers, defend us always by their protection and let us share your life with them forever.”
(Opening Prayer for the Memorial of the Guardian Angels).
  
October 2 is the Memorial of the Guardian Angels. God’s love entrusted to each one of us a personal pure spirit holy guardian angel to light and guide and to rule and guard us. He gave his angels charge of us to guard us in all of our ways. (See Psalm 91:11).

October 1 is the Feast of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. She was a Carmelite nun who exemplified the universal call to holiness. St. John Paul II set forth his plan for the Third Millennium by emphasizing the universal call to holiness. “Do you wish to become holy?" he asked. “It means to set before us the radical nature of the Sermon on the Mount: ‘Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.’ (Matthew 5:48).

“As the Council itself explained,” he wrote, “this ideal of perfection must not be misunderstood as if it involved some kind of extraordinary existence, possible only for a few "uncommon heroes" of holiness. . . . The time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone this high standard of ordinary Christian living.” (Pope John Paul II, Apostolic Letter, At the Beginning of the Third Millennium No. 30).

September 29, 2019
"I Am the Guardian of the Most Blessed Sacrament!”

September 29 is the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel. Let us remember his marvelous apparition to Jesus’ Secretary. St. Michael revealed that it was the Most Holy Will of God that he be honored as the Protector of the Church and Guardian of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
 
St. Michael told Jesus’ Secretary, “The Most High has appointed me a particular guardian of His Church and of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Let souls turn to me for renewed devotion to Our Lord in this Blessed Sacrament! He must be properly adored, loved, thanked, praised and worshipped in this the Most Glorious Sacrament.” (Journal Nos. 85-86, 177).

63rd Anniversary of Our Lady of America’s First Apparition
September 26, 2019
 
Sister Mildred, the mystic of the devotion to Our Lady of America, wrote that on the evening of August 5, 1957, “Our Lady spoke to me about the Divine Indwelling. It was her life and she lived it perfectly always conscious of His presence, never forgetting that all her greatness came from within, from Him who dwelt there, working, loving, and doing good through her. This is what Our Lady means when she speaks of reformation, renewal. It is this about which she is so concerned, namely sanctification from within. . . . She seemed anxious to impress me with some idea of the greatness of this gift of God to us, namely, His Divine Presence within our souls through sanctifying grace.”
 
This is the sixth and last article on the Practice of the Divine Indwelling.
           
The Divine Indwelling was recognized by Carmelite saints Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. A thousand years before them, St. Augustine said, “I found Thee not, O Lord, without, because I erred in seeking Thee without who were within.”  St. John of the Cross recognized this and later said, “God then is hidden within the soul, and there the good contemplative must seek Him with love.”

Practicing the Presence of the Divine Indwelling

Our Lady of America told Sister Mildred that the Divine Indwelling “was her life and she lived it perfectly always conscious of His presence.” How do we practice the presence of the Divine Indwelling on a daily basis? How can we do this in our technological age with the noise of radios, televisions, computers and Iphones? We must have a site, silence and solitude. These are the three requisites of regularly practicing the presence of the Divine Indwelling on a daily basis. We also need method and discipline.

This is the fourth of six articles on the Practice of the Divine Indwelling. They will be published each Thursday from the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to the 63rd Anniversary of Our Lady of America’s first apparition on September 26.

Our prayer should not be limited to petitions to God and meditation on His Word. “This form of prayerful reflection is of great value, but Christian prayer should go further: to the knowledge of the love of the Lord Jesus, to union with Him.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2708).

Daily Living of the Divine Indwelling

How do we daily live the Divine Indwelling as Our Lady of America requested? Thomas à Kempis wrote in his Imitation of Christ that we should prepare our hearts for the Divine Indwelling.

This is the third of six articles on the Practice of the Divine Indwelling. They will be published each Thursday from the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to the 63rd Anniversary of Our Lady of America’s first apparition on September 26.

"This should not come as a surprise to somebody. They should not walk into their place of work and have to do something that they're clearly opposed to!"
 
That’s what my daughter, Maggie Eisenbarth, mother of nine and the Respect Life Coordinator for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington, Vermont, said after the Federal Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a Notice of Violation on August 28th against the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC), Vermont’s largest hospital.

The Mystery of the Divine Indwelling

How does this Divine Indwelling happen? Jesus Christ, true God and true Man with the Holy Trinity is conceived (infused is more accurate) in us through our Baptism by the will of the Father and the power of the Holy Spirit through the mediation of Mary our mother. Christ is “formed within us,” as St. Paul says, (Galatians 4:19) by Mary’s mediation. She who mediated Christ’s formation and Divine Indwelling in herself, also mediates His Divine Indwelling in us by God’s grace. As Jesus’ human nature was conceived in her, so our share in the divine nature is conceived in us by her mediation. Our Lady of America said, “I am the Mother of the sacred humanity.”

In 1976, St. John Paul II, when he was Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, was in the United States at the Eucharistic Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In his address, he warned us, “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel, between Christ and the Antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously.”

Archbishop Sheen’s Beatification Miracle                            

Bonnie Engstrom asked for help from Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as she watched lifesaving measures being taken for her son, who had been born at home just moments before without a pulse or drawing breath.

After 61 minutes, just as emergency room personnel were about to pronounce him dead, he began to breathe and his heart rate shot up to a normal level for a newborn. Despite a dire prognosis for his future, the boy has thrived and is now a healthy 8-year-old who likes chicken nuggets, Star Wars and riding his bicycle.
