Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

Per Mariam

Through the Blessed Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ came to the world. How can it be else, than that the world will come to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary?

Those who think they know all about Jesus Christ because they use His Holy Name as a curse word may yet be wooed to Him by the beguiling and gentle affection of His mother. We should not fear that proclaiming her will thwart efforts to proclaim Him; Elizabeth did not when she was visited by the Great Mother of God. So we can hope that all men and women of good will, but perhaps of hard heart, will find their heart melted by her loving embrace.
