Our Lady of the Holy Rosary - pray for us
The events of the current year related to the Covid-19 virus, as predicted by experts, are gaining momentum again. Sickness, lack of good health, deprivation and fear for the future are experiences of almost all people, because they affect each of us in one way or another. Today, when the pandemic is developing rapidly again, and many - often contradictory - comments and opinions multiply, we are also looking for understanding and sense of what is happening. From the human point of view, it seems as if everything that the present time brings is locked within the prevailing virus...
If in Mary all the centuries and all the
generations will have to admire the wonder of
your grace, in me all mankind will have to
admire the miracle of your mercy." (OOCC X, 303)
In this Marian month, we celebrate with the Universal Church two great and important feasts: Pentecost and the feast of Queen of Apostles. The Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1 ff) remind us that on the day of Pentecost, in the hall of the Cenacle, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles with great power, He descended upon them as wind and fire as the Spirit who creates and renews, initiating the mission of the Church in the world.
My God, My Mercy…

On our calendars, spring has just begun. Outside appears as if nothing has happened…, blue skies embracing the earth, sun's rays peeking into the windows bringing warmth, flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and a warm spring breeze delicately blows around. We all love spring because it comes to us in light colors, with hope, with a smile, with new life and warmth. Such is a nature: faithful to God’s law and grows and develops according to its own natural rhythm.
