Our Lady takes us to the Eucharist
Entering the Basilica's upper chapel to celebrate our Community Mass. Dec 10. The bus could not take us to the convent due to the crowds, and none of us knew how to get there. This made us late for our scheduled Mass at the basilica, it appeared that we would miss the opportunity to celebrate it. We were able to apply what the Lord has taught, living in His hands.

On the night of the Dec. 11th, we went early to the basilica hoping at least to be able to participate in the midnight Mass at a distance... But our Lady had better plans...

Our Lady gave us the first seats of her basilica for the Mass of her feast. We were her little guests of honor, but those seats were not an honor in the way of the world. Our Lady placed us close to the altar of sacrifice, where Jesus gives Himself as a Victim of love so that we too live fully as victims with the Victim. Our Lady in this way received our community and prepared us to live being ONE with her at the foot of the Cross.
Our Blessed Mother gave us this message before the midnight Mass:
"I have brought you before me to receive the fullness of the blessing God desires to give you and my family of LC. Receive my tears of joy; joy for your fiat united to mine; joy for your faithfulness to live united as One Body to the Holy Sacrifice of my Son. Receive the crown of glory reserved for the martyrs of Christ’s love. Do not be afraid during the time of the great trial that must come upon the world, for I am with you. You have followed me to the altar of sacrifice. It is here, in the perfect sacrifice of the Mass, that I am forming you as God’s holy warriors of love to fight the final battle. Remain with me in the perfect Sacrifice of my Son and you will receive the crown of glory..."
