Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Ave Maria!

Pray that Our Lady of America be put in National Shrine

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Ave Maria!

This would be great! Storm heaven with prayers!

Supporters of Our Lady of America may want to read this National Catholic Register blog (Matt & Pat Archbold) published on Monday, as you continue to pray:

Our Lady of America: A Light in the Darkness

“As the Bishops of the United States gather in Baltimore this week for their fall meeting, the family and the recent Synod on the Family are forefront in many bishops’ minds. Now more than ever, there is a need to focus people on the sanctification of the family. Our culture is trying to push impurity as the accepted standard of moral behavior within families and purity is viewed as an unachievable standard for normal people. But we know that Our Lord calls us all to purity and fifty years ago he sent his mother…” (Read More)

Ave Maria Meditations

Oh Immaculate Mother, Queen of our country, open our hearts, our homes, and our land to the coming of Jesus, your Divine Son. With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady, so pure and so bright with the radiance of Gods light shining in and about you. Be our leader against the powers of evil set upon wresting the world of souls, redeemed at such a great cost by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself, in union with Him, from that same Savior, Who loves us with infinite charity.

We gather about you, O chaste and holy Mother, Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land, determined to fight under your banner of holy purity against the wickedness that would make all the world an abyss of evil, without God and without your loving maternal care.

We consecrate our hearts, our homes, our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen, that the kingdom of your Son, our Redeemer and our God, may be firmly established in us. (more…)

FiNews – The FIs Mentioned in Interview with Abp Raymond Burke

Monday, June 15th, 2009
Ave Maria!

“It is through our union with the heart of Mary, that she brings us to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.” —Archbishop Raymond Burke

In a latest Newsflash by Inside the Vatican Magazine an excellent interview titled “The Overseer of Justice” was featured by their correspondent Andrew Rabel of Archbishop Raymond Burke who heads the Apostolic Signatura in Rome. Not only were many interesting subjects covered, ranging from Pope Benedict,  to the Obama-Notre Dame fiasco, to His Excellency’s role as head of the Church’s ‘Supreme Court’ – but also he mentioned many projects and events with which the FIs have had mutual involvement and in the process we were mentioned a few times. These include the recent Ordinations by Abp. Burke of six FI priests in Tarquinia, Italy according to the extraordinary form (old Rite), the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, WI and the fact that we help staff it, the promotion of Kolbian Marian Spirituality and the Marian Dogmas of Coredemptrix and Mediatrix, and the promotion of Our Lady of America.  Here is an excerpt:

Recently you participated in an ordination to the priesthood of some Franciscans of the Immaculate at Tarquinia, north of Rome, according to the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite (the old rite). It is not very often that one sees a senior Churchman celebrating so solemn a ceremony according to the extraordinary form. What was your reason for doing this?

Burke: First of all, I have celebrated a number of priesthood ordinations according to the extraordinary form. One very beautiful one took place in Saint Louis in June of 2007, on the feast of the Sacred Heart.  When the Friars of the Immaculate requested that I celebrate the ordinations according to the extraordinary form, I was happy to accept because I have known them for a long time, and they staff the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe at La Crosse.
To put it another way, I have never tried to downplay or hide in any way my strong support of what Pope Benedict XVI has asked the Church to do in Summorum Pontificum, and what his predecessor, the servant of God John Paul II asked us to do in Ecclesia Dei adflicta, but rather to accept their liturgical direction fully and wholeheartedly.

In responding to a request like this from the Franciscans of the Immaculate, do you have any sympathy with the Kolbean Marian theology which is their charism, and its current manifestation, in pushing for a final Marian dogma of Our Lady as Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix?

Burke: I certainly am very sympathetic to the Kolbean theology by which I have been enriched for many years. The first papal ceremony that I ever attended, as a first-year seminarian at the Pontifical North American College, was the beatification of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, and I have had the blessing over the years to get to know his writings and to visit the sacred places of his heroic life and death in Poland. I am certainly very steeped in the whole spirituality of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as the way to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is through our union of heart with Mary, and our striving to imitate her, that is, our making our hearts like hers, that she brings us to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
With regard to the fifth Marian dogma as it is often called, for my part, I believe it to be part of the ordinary teaching of the Church. Although I have no special competence in the area, I certainly am supportive of such a declaration. The teaching is part of my faith. (read more here)

News #3 – Fr. Angelo’s Homily gives the audio background as Our Lady of America is processed to St. Veronica’s (17min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo Geiger, FI gives a homily at the visitation of Our Lady of America at St. Veronica’s in Howell, NJ as she is escorted in grand style by the Jackson Fire Department with four fire engines, lights flashing, sirens wailing and horns blaring through the City of Howell and then carried into St. Veronica’s church. In the context of this manly devotion of the fire men (many of whom were at Ground Zero six years ago) and Our Lady’s call to purity and the upholding of family life, Fr. Angelo calls us to renew our commitment to the family and especially for men to embrace the much neglected vocation of fatherhood as key to promoting purity in society. Our Lady of America has promised to give us the strength to follow these difficult vocations if only we take up devotion to her Immaculate Heart. We hope to have the Visitation to St. Antoninus and other videos up soon.

Update: See a shorter video here

Here is the video. It was a while coming, but worth the wait. Wow! What an event, a lifetime experience, and so much video footage to edit! Thanks for your patience. It is a bit longer than most of our videos here on AirMaria, but every deletion was heart rending. We will hopefully be posting a shorter version tomorrow. This segment includes Our Lady of America at St. Peter’s, enthronement on the fire tuck, the trip past Ground Zero, Her arrival at St. Patrick’s and the devotions there.

Many thanks to Denise Parlacoski and Kevin McCarthy for making this happen. Thanks to the Fire and Police Departments of Newark and New York, to the Port Authority, the dioceses of Newark and New York and to Fr. Kevin Madigan, pastor of St. Peter’s and Monsignor Robert T. Ritchie, rector of St. Patrick’s and many others. Thanks to all who attended these events and, finally, thanks to Our Lady of America for taking center stage in our troubled times. Our Lady of America, pray for us.

Ave Maria!
