Beginning August 15, the novena culminates in a Rosary rally held in Washington, D.C. on October 7, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Tomorrow We Remember Saint Joachim The ^Traditional Feast Day Of The Grandfather Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Always The Day Following The Assumption- Saint Joachim statues have also become harder to find as the new Rite attempted to suppress another Saint by combining it with the Feast of Saint Anne which it is not , It has its own charism apart from Saint Anne and many original reasons the Pope chose to position the day adjacent to the Assumption

   The burning zeal for God’s glory that motivates you fills my heart with joy. It is sad for us to see in our own time that indifferentism in its many forms is spreading like an epidemic not only among the laity but also among religious. But God is worthy of glory beyond measure, and therefore it is of absolute and supreme importance to seek that glory with all the power of our feeble resources. Since we are mere creatures we can never return to him all that is his due. The most resplendent manifestation of God’s glory is the salvation of souls, whom Christ redeemed by shedding his blood. To work for the salvation and sanctification of as many souls as possible, therefore, is the preeminent purpose of the apostolic life. Let me, then, say a few words that may show the way toward achieving God’s glory and the sanctification of many souls.

We will learn this lesson more quickly through the Immaculate Virgin, whom God has made the dispenser of his mercy. It is beyond all doubt that Mary’s will represents to us the will of God himself. By dedicating ourselves to her we become in her hands instruments of God’s mercy even as she was such an instrument in God’s hands. We should let ourselves be guided and led by Mary and rest quiet and secure in her hands. She will watch out for us, provide for us, answer our needs of body and spirit; she will dissolve all our difficulties and worries.

Saint Maximillian Kolbe
