On Christmas Eve, I'm going to do something which I'm afraid that I've been neglecting in recent years. I'm going to look up into the night sky & at all the stars & remember that God is still up there, looking upon all of us and that He and He alone has all the Power; all the Might; & all the Glory.
Our Blessed Mother, however, has been given Special Power by God to protect all those who consecrate their hearts and lives to Her Immaculate Heart & the Sacred Heart of Jesus. So, no matter what She will protect & preserve us in these times, and keep us under the protection of Her Mantle.
Here is a picture of a statue of Our Lady that was left untouched and intact on Long Island even though at least a hundred homes burnt to the ground in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
