Joachim and Anne
Standing In The Breach
From now on, you will be the representative of the souls of our parish community. This is a great task. Every day, you will recite the morning prayers in the name of the parish community; in the name of the fathers, the mothers, the young people, the indifferent children and the foolish elderly who, even now, do not even think about the end of their life. Ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit for them. I will answer your prayer. Ask the Father in My Name and pray for the parish community. Ask His mercy by My Holy Wounds. During the day, offer Me reparation for the unfaithful souls in the parish. You see, for this you must renounce yourself entirely. I have chosen you to be the intercessor of the city. Do you know what this means? It is almost a priestly dignity. Make many spiritual communions for them. Also, do not forget the sick. Take care that not even one soul be damned.” (Jesus) (August 28, 1962)
Readings: On the next day Moses said
to the people,
“You have committed a grave sin.
I will go up to the LORD, then;
perhaps I may be able to make atonement for your
So Moses went back to the LORD and said,
“Ah, this people has indeed committed a grave sin
in making a god of gold for themselves!
If you would only forgive their sin!
If you will not, then strike me out of the book
that you have written.” (Exodus 32)
Prayer Meditation- O Lord, we praise You and we bless You and adore You because at this time in our history You have asked us to stand in the breach. Because so few are paying attention Lord to You and all that You have done to purchase our redemption. And it is not just those away from Church but also those who are indifferent and lukewarm in our parishes and if we are honest at times, yes, sadly, that is even us. We must never boast in anything but You Lord, and You crucified (! Corinthians 2:2). Lord, we have been given the privilege to keep You company and to beg mercy in the name of all including our families and our friends. Let us not turn our backs but like Moses let us stand in the breach for those who are unable or unwilling to pray for themselves. Saint Joachim, Saint Anne, Saint Joseph, and Blessed Mother Mary pray and intercede for us!
