Title: A Life Offering to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart.
Post by: Xavier on October 29, 2018, 10:58:00 PM
Every day, we make our morning offerings to the Holy Trinity, through the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. In a similar way, through a Hungarian Nun, who published the following prayer with the approval of her spiritual director, God and Mary have asked those who are willing to make an Offering of their Whole Lives, especially for the Priesthood and for Vocations, and entirely for God's Intentions.

TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING - "My dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with your most precious Blood and your sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby offer my whole life to the intention of your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Together with my life, I place at your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the sufferings of my of my entire life for the adoration and supplication of the Holy Trinity, for unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and Priests, for good Priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world.

O my Jesus, please accept my life sacrifice and my offerings and give me your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death.  Amen."

Please consider making the Life Offering by saying the prayer above, with firm resolution and clear intent, and renewing it periodically.

The need of the Church is so urgent and the hour is so grave that all of us should be asking ourselves how we can contribute as best we can. And this offers us a simple, easy and safe way to make the best possible contribution to the Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls.

Christ Needs Victims: Our Lord to Josefa Menendez On February 11, 1923, Our Lord appeared to Sister Josefa Menendez in France, with his Heart glowing like fire and said: “And now, let us work for souls. Many are lost, it is true, but we shall be able to save many others from the ways of perdition, and this will comfort My Heart, in spite of the offenses committed against It. Do you know, Josefa, how sinners rend Me, and how much I need those who will make reparation? That is why I come to rest among those I have myself chosen. May these souls, by their fidelity and their love, heal the wounds that sinners cause Me. I need victims to repair the bitterness inflicted on My Heart, and to relieve My sorrow. How great is the number of sins committed! How many the souls that are lost!” (Mt. 7:13) On October 15, 1923, Our Lord told her: “Do not imagine that I am going to speak to you of anything but My Cross. By it I saved the world: by it I will bring the world back to the truths of faith and to the Way of Love. I will manifest My will to you: I saved the world from the Cross, that is to say, through suffering. You know that sin is an infinite offense and needs infinite reparation. That is why I ask you to offer up your sufferings and labors, in union with the infinite merits of My Heart. You know that My Heart is yours ...

"These souls do not need to change their manner of living externally, that is, the married couples in their homes and in the married state, can form a part of my Work of Atonement. The young, who have not chosen a state, or the adults that are still single, those, yes. Let them consecrate themselves completely to giving veneration to my Victim Heart. Let them live united to me, and to the Minim sisters. The sick, the professionals, let them live as though fastened to the cross of their duties: let them unite themselves to the legion of victim souls."

In Marienfried, Germany, Our Lady mentioned that Victim Souls will be needed for the Triumph to come. ""In secret I shall work marvels in souls until the required number of victim souls will be filled

To offer one's life to God completely means to place all the satisfactory value of one's works at His disposal, and allow His Mother to distribute them as She chooses; it means no longer to pray only for our own personal intentions, but above all for Jesus and Mary's.
