Dear Friends of the Cenacles of Life,

“May the Lord give you His peace!”

I want to wish you the Lord’s choicest blessings for this New Year 2014. As we enter this year, we face great challenges to our faith. I attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. Despite the very frigid weather, there was a great crowd there, especially young people. That is very heartening because they are the future of the Church.

I am writing to ask your continued prayers for two special intentions. The first is to move the Supreme Court to throw out the HHS mandate. This is clearly a violation of our First Amendment right to freedom of religion. The State does not have the authority to make you violate your conscience before God. Paying for contraception and abortion is certainly a violation of God’s law, and that is the supreme law over any other. It is said that the Supreme Court will give its ruling on this crucial issue in March. We must storm Heaven with prayer.

Another cause to pray for is to promote the request of Our Lady of America. I believe that this is based on an authentic apparition of Our Lady. I rely on the judgment of Cardinal Burke who studied this question very carefully as an outstanding canon lawyer and has concluded that in his judgment this apparition of Our Lady of America has been approved by Archbishop Paul Leibold. He was the spiritual director of Sr. Mildred Neuzil who received the apparitions of Our Lady of America. She was also given the mission to promote her message by Our Lady. This message can bring peace and protection in our land.

Please pray earnestly for these two special intentions. Asking the Lord to bless each and every one of you and all your loved ones, I am

Yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph
