Fi News – AirMaria iPad/iPhone Viewing Available

Monday, April 30th, 2012

airmaria-logo-complete.jpg

Ave Maria!

If you are using an iPad or iPhone you can now view videos directly on AirMaria without having to go to YouTube. Apple does not allow the Flash Player (which up till now was universally accepted) on their iOS devices like iPad so it requires some extra effort to get a site to play video on them (although all Android devices like Samsung and Droid can play Flash). Since iPad and iPhone are taking up more and more of the viewing share and even Adobe, who makes Flash, is abandoning it, we decided to make the effort to accommodate Apple mobile users. Currently about 75% of the our videos are viewable on iPad and the rest (generally our oldest ones) will be available soon.

So if you are on an iPad or iPhone just click on the view button normally and then look for the iPad button that you see to the right and click on it. On the other hand if you see the “No iPad” button that you see to the left then you are out of luck. Although, you will probably find it on YouTube.

Written Post – Fr George: Third Sunday After Easter 29 April 2012

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

29 April 2012

Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned to joy.” Jn. 16:20

In this time after Easter the Church prepares us for Jesus’ Ascension and the coming of the Holy Spirit (more…)

Ave Maria Meditations

“I am all thine, and all that I have is thine, O most loving Jesus, through Mary Thy most holy and Immaculate Mother.

23. God the Father gathered all the waters together and called them the seas (maria). He gathered all his graces together and called them Mary (Maria). The great God has a treasury or storehouse full of riches in which he has enclosed all that is beautiful, resplendent, rare, and precious, even his own Son. This immense treasury is none other than Mary whom the saints call the “treasury of the Lord”. From her fullness all men are made rich.

24. God the Son imparted to his mother all that he gained by his life and death, namely, his infinite merits and his eminent virtues. He made her the treasurer of all his Father had given him as heritage. Through her he applies his merits to his members and through her he transmits his virtues and distributes his graces. She is his mystical channel, his aqueduct, through which he causes his mercies to flow gently and abundantly.

25. God the Holy Spirit entrusted his wondrous gifts to Mary, his faithful spouse, and chose her as the dispenser of all he possesses, so that she distributes all his gifts and graces to whom she wills, as much as she wills, how she wills and when she wills. No heavenly gift is given to men which does not pass through her virginal hands. Such indeed is the will of God, who has decreed that we should have all things through Mary, so that, making herself poor and lowly,, and hiding herself in the depths of nothingness during her whole life, she might be enriched, exalted and honored by almighty God. Such are the views of the Church and the early Fathers.

28. Mary has authority over the angels and the blessed in heaven. As a reward for her great humility, God gave her the power and the mission of assigning to saints the thrones made vacant by the apostate angels. (more…)

Video – Message From Our Lady To Pope Benedict – Dr. Miravalle: Mcasts158

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Click to Play Video

MaryCast Specials #158 ( 11min) Play –  Dr. Mark Miravalle bases this talk on an article called “Who is Mary of Nazareth” that can be read on the front page of a  new web site AmsterdamApparitions.com that is the official site for the apparitions of Our Lady of All Nations. The article mentions how Pope Benedict essentially calls Mary the Mediatrix of Graces without using these exact words. Then Dr. Miravalle reads the May 10, 1953 message of Our Lady of All Nations that asks the Holy Father to proclaim her as “Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate”. He points out how appropriate this message is to Pope Benedict.

Knocking at the Door of Your Heart

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock …” (Rev. 3:20)

It is true. I stand at the door of your heart, day and night. Even when you are not listening, even when you doubt it could be Me, I am there. I await even the smallest sign of your response, even the least whispered invitation that will allow Me to enter. 

And I want you to know that whenever you invite Me, I do come -always, without fail. Silent and unseen I come, but with infinite power and love, and bringing the many gifts of My Spirit. I come with My mercy, with My desire to forgive and heal you, and with a love for you beyond your com­prehension – a love every bit as great as the love I have received from the Father-”As much as the Father has loved me, I have loved you” (Jn 15:10). I come longing to con­sole you and give you strength, to lift you up and bind all your wounds. I bring you My light, to dispel your darkness and all your doubts. I come with My power, that I might carry you and all of your burdens; with My grace, to touch your heart and transform your life; and My peace I give to still your soul.

The Sacrament of Love

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

It is the little and the poor who come to Me in the Sacrament of My Love
and who console My Heart by their presence to Me.
It has always been so.

The proud and the worldly have no time for Me
because I am hidden,
because I am poor,
because I am silent
in the Sacrament of My Love.

But those who are themselves humble and poor are drawn to the humility and to the poverty of My Eucharistic Presence.
I welcome them.
I take comfort in their presence,
and I recognize them as those blessed of My Father
to whom belongs already the Kingdom of Heaven.

From In Sinu Iesu, The Journal of a Priest
