This month, instead of one or two Masses offered for my benefactors and supporters, past, present and future, there will be NINE CONSECUTIVE Masses offered for you: September 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17.
The theme of this Novena of Masses is the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that is, her body being immediately taken up into heaven upon her death. The Assumption is the Fourth Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, and the Fruit of this mystery as we pray the Rosary is the grace of a happy, holy, provided death. And that is my intention for all of you in this Novena of Masses: that you die happy, holy, provided deaths.
The days are dark, time grows short, and with each passing day the shadow of war, calamity, persecution and death grows thicker and thicker. This focuses the mind on that which is truly important, namely, will we, will YOU Dear Reader, spend all of eternity in heaven, pondering the Beatific Vision from the inside, or will we, will you, will I spend all of eternity in hell, separated from God forever, tortured by demons as a merciful distraction from what we freely chose to reject: Love Itself.
Please GO HERE for the prayers of the Novena of the Assumption. Also, my essay on the Science of the Immaculate Conception and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary might also be of interest.
And remember, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered EVERY DAY for the next NINE DAYS for the grace of a happy, holy, provided death for all of my benefactors and supporters, past, present and future.
