“You have already been told what is right and what Yaheh wants of you. Only this, to do what is right, to love loyalty and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
Since January 11, 2020, the entire Batangas province, if not the whole Filipino nation, is in a state of shock, unbelief and uncertainty, while the once beautiful Taal Volcano and Lake spewed hidden destructive force and still threatens to wreak more havoc.
Many people, though consoled by extraordinary flow of compassion, fear more a longer and yet terrible disaster ahead.
This natural outburst is beyond human and scientific solution.
No one in this world, no matter how powerful, can defeat nature’s fury.
Our sole hope is the Creator and our only refuge is His beloved, chosen and faithful Handmaid, Our Lady of Caysasay, Mediatrix of All grace, who in several occasions led by the Eucharistic Lord embraced the wonder of beautiful Batangas, keeping her peaceful and attractive.
I invite all devotees of Mary to pray the entire rosary and celebrate the 6 am Mass Tomorrow, Saturday, January 25, starting at 4:30 AM at the Mediatrix Church and proceeding in penitential procession to the Carmel of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace, Antipolo del Norte, Lipa City.
Draw as many friends and fellow faithful children of the Virgin Mother as possible. Let us look forward to the soonest time for the Taal Volcano and Lake to show once more her graciousness and splendor.
May we once again pray accompanied by Mary, Our Lady of Caysasay, Mediatrix of All grace and Jesus the Holy Eucharist, around the volcano island.
Prayer and sacrifice can overcome evil no matter where and how great his iniquity might be.
God is with us (Emmanuel)
