Father Benedict Groeschel: “Thank You Mary!”

Do you believe in the power of Mary’s intercession?  A few weeks ago, I was blessed to be able to visit the Miraculous Medal Shrine in Philadelphia.  Despite having worn a miraculous medal for many years,  I’ve been forgetting to turn to Our Lady as much as in the past.  In what could hardly be called a coincidence, I was contacted by Lizanne Magarity Pando (the Shrine’s Director of Communications) who offered me a guided tour of the shrine.  While I was there, a special feeling came over me and I felt an increased devotion and love for my Mother. 

I’ve already seen some miraculous intervention in my life, due to Our Lady’s intercession. If it’s been a while since you’ve done so, “call” your Mom…she misses you!

Listen to Father Benedict Groeschel speak about his love for Mary and the Miraculous Medal.

    I wear a Miraculous Medal myself I believe in my Mother. Please everyone join me in praying and asking Our Blessed for a Miracle for my daughter who has Multiple Sclerosis and needs to be able to walk again. She has two daughters and needs an apartment on the first floor. Right now she is on the second floor and struggles each day.

    Please help me with your voices raised up to Mother Mary and ask for a Miraculous Medal cure. Amen

    Fr. Groeschel,

    Could you explain what happens when we die and we are brought before the Lord to await His final Judgment. Is there no chance left for us to show deep sorrow for sins we have committed, and is there no chance to obtain God’s mercy and forgiveness after death in order to avoid the everlasting fires of hell if we die with mortal sin on our soul?

    I will await your answer,

    Vincent.

      Hi Vince – Thank you for your question. Fr. Groeschel is not involved with this blog. I just posted a video message from him that was available on the Internet. While I can’t speak for Fr. Groeschel, here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) says about your questions:

      Death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ (CCC 1021)

      The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, “eternal fire.” (CC 1035)

      God Bless,
      Gary
