DECEMBER 8TH – HOUR OF GRACE (12:00pm to 1:00pm)
(Acknowledgements: A very special Thank you to the Felician Sisters in general who printed this story in their AVE MARIA magazine and who so graciously translated this story from the Polish into English in order to comply with the request of the Blessed Virgin Mary that this message be sent throughout the world. Thanks also to Ethelyn David in Vancouver, BC for sending this.)
During the period of November 24, 1946 to December 8, 1947, the Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Pierina in a little church in Montichiari, Italy, eleven times.
On the first appearance the Blessed mother told Sister Pierina She wanted to be known as the “Mystical Rose,” and that an hour of grace should be kept at noon, December 8th, in all the Catholic Churches of the world. The Blessed Mother wanted this to be known through all of Italy, and the entire world.
It was November 16, 1947 when Sister Pierina was finishing Her Thanksgiving after Holy Communion when she saw a great light. She then saw a vision of the Blessed Mother as the “Mystical Rose”.
Bishop Emeritus Michael John Sheridan, who served as Bishop of Colorado Springs from 2003-2021, died peacefully on Sept. 27 at Penrose Hospital.
A vigil will be held Thursday, Oct. 6 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 22 W. Kiowa St., with Bishop James Golka presiding. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, Oct. 7 at 12 p.m. at Holy Apostles Church, 4925 N. Carefree Circle in Colorado Springs.
Michael John Sheridan was born to Bernice and John Sheridan on March 4, 1945, in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended Corpus Christi Catholic School and graduated from St. Louis University High School, where he was known as an excellent student. He then enrolled in Rockhurst College in Kansas City, Missouri.
At the end of his freshman year in college, he made the decision to enter Cardinal Glennon College Seminary in St. Louis and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1967. He then began his theology studies at Kenrick seminary, where he was also active in the theater group. He was ordained a priest on May 29, 1971, by Cardinal John Carberry.
After ordination, he continued his studies at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, earning a Licentiate in Sacred Theology. Upon returning to St. Louis, he was assigned to teach at Kenrick Seminary, where he remained for more than a decade. He continued his love of acting, performing with other clergy in a group called the Priestly Players.
Fr. Zachary of the Mother of God, SOLT has graciously provided a series of conferences he presented at a Eucharistic Marian Conference held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly, Nebraska.
These talks are sure to help the Faithful grow in a Personal, Sacramental and Covenantal Relationship with Jesus through Mary. The Conferences are largely based in Sacred Scripture (especially St John’s Gospel Chapter 6: The Bread of Life Discourse) and the Sacred Tradition as expressed by the Saints and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Please share with everyone.
