“On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves,  and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.  And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: `My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it `a den of robbers.’”  The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.” (Mark 11:15-18).

  1. “Is the Church today more concerned with the spirit of the world than with the salvation of souls, thus impeding its primary mission as a soul-saving institution? “ Um, yeah – in many of the higher quarters this presently appears a tragic reality.

  2. Then the answer is total consecration of oneself to Jesus through Mary as outlined clearly by Saint Louis Marie DeMontfort. This consecration is an act that is life changing. My entire family has made this act again and again always ending on the formal consecration on a Major Marian feast day. Our Dear Blessed Mother takes this offering of oneself very seriously and obtains the life changing Graces from her son for the soul to not only be deeply converted and continually converted to her son but assists daily on a walk to become a Saint. Striving to live each moment for the Glory of God and keeping the Commandments, learning the faith, living the faith and assisting our Lord in the salvation of souls which is really what is most important. First our soul then our neighbor’s.
