Fourth Sunday Before Christmas LOVE

LOVE

On the Fourth Sunday, the Gospel reading is about the events involving Mary and Joseph that led directly to the birth of Jesus, while the other readings are related to these.




















Faith–Prepare–Joy–Love
On this last Sunday, all our candles are lit.


The Old Testament uses a rich vocabulary to express the love of God, as a concept that appears in many instances. The Lord expresses his love through the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah and says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness" (Jeremiah 31:2)

Know today that the Lord will come: you will see his glory in the morning.

The Fourth Sunday of Advent symbolizes Love. All four candles will be lit on our Advent wreath, and we will have a full circle of light. The Lord brings the light of Love to his people by sending His only Son to earth for our salvation. 

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17) May the Love of Christ be with you and your family always.

A very appreciated comment

 The comment:

Hi-
Thanks for sharing what you know about the issue of hunger on your page here blog.ericmichelministries.ca/p/links.html. Food insecurity has become an even bigger issue over the last few years, which is absolutely tragic.

And when you see the amount of food waste, all of this sounds insane.
While doing some research online about the topic, I found an article that lists tons of food banks, organized by region. Here it is:


The more this is shared, the better it can do. If you help get the word out by sharing this link with your readers, it will go such a long way to help feeding the hungry.
Best,

Emma

"Rejoice: the Lord is nigh."

 As Christmas draws near, the Church emphasizes the joy which should be in our hearts over all that the birth of our Savior means for us. The third Sunday of Advent in 2023 is December 17th. The third Sunday of Advent is traditionally called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is the Latin word for rejoice, and this Sunday is the time for us to rejoice because Jesus came and died so that we may live forever with him!

Joy

   Eric Michel joy reunited with Holy Mary

Following the Eric Michel Testimony of the Virgin Mary on the Second Sunday of Advent.  Back to my origin, Michel de Notre Dame. As mentioned on the previous Sunday, as a protestant ministry, Mary didn't occupy a place in our Celebrations, prayers, etc. Eric Michel Ministries was, for ten years, a Christ-centered ministry.

In 2024, our ministry will be a Christ through Mary as part of the Marian Mouvement.

Marianism

The Veneration of Mary
Our various devotions, which will include prayers, pious acts, visual arts, poetry, and music, are devoted to Mary.

Believing in the incarnation of God the Son through Mary is the basis for calling her the Mother of God, which was declared a dogma at the Council of Ephesus in 431. At the Second Vatican Council and in Pope John Paul II's encyclical Redemptoris Mater, she is spoken of also as Mother of the Church.  

Redemptoris Mater (Latin: Mother of the Redeemer) is an encyclical by Pope John Paul II delivered on March 25, 1987, in Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. Subtitled On the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Life of the Pilgrim Church, the text addresses many topics in Mariology. 

The four Marian dogmas of Mother of God, Immaculate Conception, perpetual virginity, and Assumption form the basis of Mariology. 

Mariology (the study of Mary) has been related to Christology (the study of Christ) and, in Catholic theological and papal writings, has been viewed as interwoven with the mystery of Christ.

Today is a Sunday of Joy, and we are aiming our day to the Seven Joy; you are invited to join the Marian Family Prayer Group on FB for the Joyful Mysteries:

The Seven Joys of the Virgin (or of Mary, the Mother of Jesus) is a popular devotion to events of the life of the Virgin Mary, arising from a trope of medieval devotional literature and art.

The Seven Joys were frequently depicted in medieval devotional literature and art. The seven joys are usually listed as follows:

  1. The Annunciation
  2. The Nativity of Jesus
  3. The Adoration of the Magi
  4. The Resurrection of Christ
  5. The Ascension of Christ to Heaven
  6. The Pentecost or Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and Mary
  7. The Coronation of the Virgin in Heaven

The Second Week of Advent is the week of

 Peace

Two candles are lit

This verse tells us that Jesus came to be the Prince of Peace. On the Second Sunday, the Gospel reading recalls the preaching of John the Baptist, who came to "prepare the way of the Lord."


The Prophets' Candle symbolizes hope; the Angel's Candle symbolizes Peace; the Shepherds' Candle symbolizes joy; the Bethlehem Candle symbolizes love.

Hope–Peace–Joy–Love


Eric Michel Testimony of Peace and the Virgin Mary:

Everybody knows I have been an ordained protestant minister for 36 years, since December 7. Christianity is my faith, and even if I converted as a Born Again Catholic in 2020 by joining the Third Order of Saint Francis, Mary was not present in my life as a minister and in my personal life. Protestants, in general, reject the veneration and invocation of the Saints. We believe Mary is the mother of Jesus and "blessed among women" (Luke 1:42), but we generally do not agree that Mary should be venerated. She is an outstanding example of a life dedicated to God. As such, we tend not to accept certain church doctrines, such as her being preserved from sin. 


Now, my faith has changed since October, and this is my steps:


  • 2023.10.22 Mass @ St Anastasie, if you follow The History and Highlights of Eric Michel and Eric Michel Ministries International, you will notice that I visited some churches in the Diocese of St. Jerome, mainly for two reasons: 1) to be acquainted with Franciscan Priests and 2) taking photos for the photos site. At the end of the mass after the photo session, I saw flyers in the narthex, the church bulletin, and a magazine of the Heralds of the Gospel that I took with me on my way out. At home later that day, I was flipped through the magazine pages, and I noticed a web address; of course, I had to visit it. On-site, I read: "Be under the special protection of Mary! To Jesus through Mary 100% ONLINE 100% FREE. Fill out the form below to join, according to St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort. I asked myself why not. According to Father Michael Joseph Carlson (EP), the Holy Virgin Mary led all my steps toward her and the path to join the Militia of the Immaculate.

The Militia Immaculatae (meaning the "Army of the Immaculate One"), called in English the Knights of the Immaculata, is a worldwide Catholic evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917


  • 2023.10.23 Chaplain Eric Michel started the Consecration to Our Lady Course
  • 2023.10.26 Chaplain Eric Michel received the Certificate of Enrollment of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary
  • 2023.10.27 I purchased the Miracle Medal from a merchant in Italy via Amazon.
  • 2023.10.30 The Blessing of the Scapular of St Francis
  • 2023-11-05 Member of the Association Médaille Miraculeuse. 
  • 2023.11.11 Consecration day with the Heralds of the Gospel
  • 2023.12.08  Member of the Association lourdesvolunteers.org. Our members bring the sick to Lourdes and host Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experiences TM worldwide.
  • 2023.12.08 World Apostolate of Fatima, USA, Our Lady’s Blue Army
  • 2023.12.08 Member of the Association of the Miraculous Medal (Knights of the Miraculous Medal)
  • 2023.12.08 Member of Aroma Rosary
  • 2023.12 08 Member of Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary

The Church is definitely for Peace in all places and for all people, has repeatedly advocated vocally for the prevention or cessation of war, and supports the long tradition of pacifism for Catholics. From St. Maximilian Kolbe, we work “To conquer the whole world for Christ through Mary Immaculate” by evangelization and prayers, offering one's dedication and apostolate.
