A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
The Parents Role in Securing Heaven for Your Children
Our Lord was thrice introduced to the world and recognized as the God Man.
At his birth, through the voice of the angels and signs in the heavens.
In the Power of his Naming at the time of his circumcision
At the Presentation when the prophets Simeon and Anna recognized the Holiness of his countenance and foretold that he was now the sign.
The sign of contradiction.
The sign of the cross which was seen at that moment by Our Lady in a vision.
This was the moment when Our Lady began to carry her cross.
For 33 yrs less 40 days she carried Calvary and groomed the God Man for his destiny.
The destiny to save the world.
The Presentation marks the Great Day of the Lord when prophets witnessed and uttered truth of the Countenance of the King.
And Mary and Joseph were revealed the price of salvation was the cross!
They knew in that moment the price it would take to save souls!
This was his destiny and their role was to prepare him to fulfill his destiny.
This is the moment when the Spirit of Family took its deepest root!
Parents should recognize that their most vital role is to get the souls entrusted to them by God to their heavenly reward!
Let the Spirit of Family keep you rooted in this vital role.
Protect your child from evil, so they may secure their place in heaven.
To attempt to protect them from "death" is beyond your ability without the grace of God and is God’s to call!
The vocation of a parent is to groom them for God, and preserve as best we can purity and innocence.
Guide them in the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Teach the law and the love of the Father and seek always the Holy Face of Christ our King!
Luke 2:21-40 (DR)
"And after eight days were accomplished, that the child should be circumcised, his name was called JESUS, which was called by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
And after the days of her purification, according to the law of Moses, were accomplished, they carried him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord: As it is written in the law of the Lord: Every male opening the womb shall be called holy to the Lord: And to offer a sacrifice, according as it is written in the law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons: And behold there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon: and this man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel. And the Holy Ghost was in him. And he had received an answer from the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.
And he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when his parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law, He also took him into his arms and blessed God and said Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word in peace: Because my eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples: A light to the revelation of the Gentiles and the glory of thy people Israel. And his father and mother were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall and for the resurrection of many in Israel and for a sign which shall be contradicted. And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts thoughts may be revealed. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser. She was far advanced in years and had lived with her husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow until fourscore and four years: who departed not from the temple, by fastings and prayers serving night and day. Now she, at the same hour, coming in, confessed to the Lord: and spoke of him to all that looked for the redemption of Israel. And after they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their city Nazareth. And the child grew and waxed strong, full of wisdom: and the grace of God was in him."
