Happy Birthday Mary!


On September 8, we celebrate the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
 
"Let us celebrate with joy the birth of the Virgin Mary, of whom was born the Sun of Justice.... Her birth constitutes the hope and the light of salvation for the whole world.... Her image is light for the whole Christian people." (From the Liturgy).
 
We have celebrated this Feast for the last 27 years with her image of light in the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe through which she has journeyed across the world and throughout the United States. 

However, we need your help to continue:
  • Coordinating Visitations of the Missionary Image to churches, schools, prisons, hospitals and nursing homes around the country, spreading Our Lady’s message of life and peace in the New Evangelization and encouraging devotion to her Son in the Eucharist.

  • Spreading the devotion to Jesus King of All Nations for our protection. 

  • Bringing the message of Our Lady of America to our country for purity and peace at a time when the threats to life, family, and liberty have never been greater and the stakes never higher.
Without your help, we cannot continue to do this!

One of our Guardians of the Missionary Image wrote to me,
I am very touched that you have been obedient and followed Our Lady's words. Because of your work and devotion, you are able to help others to follow Our Blessed Mother. As for me, it is an honor to work as a Guardian for the Missionary Image with your Apostolates. The Image miraculously sheds tears and oil. Holy Glitter (Escarchas) abound around her. You can see it and feel it on her hair and mantle. Her eyes open and close. Some hear or feel her heartbeat as well as the unborn Jesus in her womb. She is truly miraculous! Through her intercession, many are healed! Thank You for this wonderful ministry of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe which travels around the United States. We really need her in these times! May Our Blessed Mother bless you, and wrap you with her Holy Mantle!
See the photo of the nine year old boy who had a heart to heart talk with Our Lady of Guadalupe in her Missionary Image which brought him to tears. Obviously Our Lady touched his heart and he turned, ran and hugged his own mother. The witnesses felt that Our Lady had spoken to him but he didn’t elaborate. Also see the picture of the green Holy Glitter which appeared near Our Lady’s shoulder in her Image.

 

One of the greatest blessings of the Missionary Image is how Our Lady enables all of her children to experience her love, healings and conversions.

Most people will never have the opportunity to see the original image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. That is why we bring her to them through Visitations of her Missionary Images.
 
Will you help us to continue these Visitations?


We are in the second half of our Summer Campaign, but have only raised $35,902 of our goal of $130,000 for this quarter of our annual budget year.
 
Many of our supporters take well-deserved summer vacations, which causes our support to reach its lowest levels of the year.

So, we would really appreciate your help to keep our Missionary Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jesus King of All Nations and Our Lady of America on their Visitations throughout America.

But, in order to continue this  work for the greater glory of God, we must raise $94,098 by the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29. This is just for our normal quarterly operating expenses of maintaining our Apostolates’ Center and paying our modest salaries. There is no surplus in our budget, which does not include any special projects, needs, or savings.

Please consider the most generous donation that you can make today. There is no donation too large or too small that Our Lady can’t use for the Kingdom of God. 
 
Whether $20, $50, $100, $200, or even $500 or more – we need your help today!
 
Will You Help Us With a Gift TODAY?


We try to be good stewards of your donations. I promise not to waste them. My mother always told me, “Waste not, want not!”
 
Most of your donations will be used to further our Mission. Only a tiny portion will be used for fundraising. We have no professional fundraisers. We do it all in-house ourselves. We may not know what we’re doing, but we're getting better at it!
 
Check out our budget pie below. You will see that only a small slice is for fundraising expenses. Here is how your donations will be used if we reach our goal: 

Our benefactors receive the following spiritual benefits from our apostolate: Remembrance of your Intentions in our daily Chaplets and perpetual Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe and Jesus King of All Nations; in our weekly Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament and in our special monthly Masses.

"Be not sparing of freewill gifts. With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as He has given to you, generously, according to your means. For the LORD is one who always repays, and He will give back to you sevenfold.” (Sirach 35:7-10).
