3 Reasons Mary Helps Our Loved Ones Who Have Left the Church

Do you know someone who has left the Church?  

Who do you ask to pray for your loved ones? 

Sometimes St. Monica is invoked on behalf of children who have strayed from the faith. And she definitely can be a powerful intercessor. 

But there is another intercessor we should never forget when we pray for friends and family who have left the Church: our Blessed Mother. 

Here are some reasons why: 

1. Mary is Our Loved Ones’ Mother:  I once had a very strong prayer experience in which I was desperately pleading with Mary to intercede for some people I love very much who have left the Church. 

While in prayer, I felt the Blessed Mother turn to me with compassion and love and say: 

You are concerned about your loved one because you love them very much.
But imagine how much I must love them.
I am their Mother.
The ones you love are always beneath my mantel and surrounded by my prayers. 

What a beautiful image to carry with us through the month of May: Mary, with her mantle around our loved ones. 

2. Mary is the Evangelizer Par Excellence: In my book, The Prodigal You Love: Inviting Loved Ones Back to the Church, I go back to the model of Mary frequently because she was the first evangelizer. Mary knows how to give Jesus to our loved ones because she gave him first to the world and we can learn from her. Mary can guide us as we navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of relating to loved ones who have rejected the faith or even God altogether. Her example can teach us how to reach out to our loved ones. 

3. Mary Lived in Union with the Holy Spirit: In order to effectively reach our loved ones we have to disconnect from our own ideas, opinions, egos, anger, and stress and tap into the presence of the Holy Spirit living in us through our Baptism. The Holy Spirit can communicate with our loved ones more effectively than we ever could on our own. Mary can teach you how to get out of the way and let the Holy Spirit invite your loved ones back to the Church through you. 

If you know anyone who has left the Church, this month would be a beautiful time to ask Mary to accompany them with her prayers and love. 

I hope you enjoy this excerpt from The Prodigal You Love that touches on what we can learn from Mary’s union with the Holy Spirit. 

And if you like what you read, pick up The Prodigal You Love in this special month dedicated to our Blessed Mother! 

Mary wants to accompany you as you journey with your loved ones. And please know that the Daughters of St. Paul also accompany you in your prayers for your loved ones. 

 Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP

    The Truth about Demonic Attack (Schizophrenia) Jesus Christ creates and administers Demonic Attack (Schizophrenia) IMPORTANT: Jesus Christ broke his own commandment in John Chapter 2 when he said “Woman why do you involve me?” Jesus Replied, "My time has not yet come". He dishonored his mother and is not pure of sin by addressing her as "Woman"; breaking his own commandment. We should not follow a supposed God who breaks his own commandments, then forces them upon us. Demonic attack (SCHIZOPHRENIA) Jesus will create a supernatural act to cause Schizophrenia in an individual if he/you does not meet social requirements, and the goodness of your heart. Schizophrenia is NOT a mental condition. Schizophrenia is actually what can be referred to as a tormenting spirit, and this is in literal terms. A spirit that has been sent (and I mean from the realm of Jesus Christ). Jesus will use spirits (true black matter which he sends to hell upon judgement day; humans just like us that he sends to hell will be used as tormenting spirits), Jesus Christ will Oblige his God power against you. This spirit is literally invisible and attached to you by the power of Jesus Christ. What this is designed to do is to change your life to Christianity. Jesus uses this to force you to become a Christian and change your ways. He expects after this happens for an individual to "run"to him; know what I mean. So.... Jesus called the order to hurt you in the first place with these numbers and a Demonic Attack (Schizophrenia) symptom, and now he wants you to run to him for the solution and to give him credit; you see; which is what Jesus wants so you can say he "saved" you; understand? This is how he gets you, when it is he who has stepped across that line commandeering your humanity. This process can also be known as needing an Exorcism or Deliverance. Why, you might be wondering? Because in either case, which these are the only two official methods (besides Jesus himself) where admission of receiving Jesus into your life is part of the solution; giving your life to Christ; so, you see how he forces you to do this? COPIES OF "THE DEMONIC ATTACK & RELEASE HANDBOOK" ARE NOW AVAILABLE; A CONCISE VOLUME OF A FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE WITH TORMENTING SPIRITS, THEIR TRAITS AND DESCRIPTION ON THOSE TRAITS, AND MUCH MORE. THIS COMPENDIUM IS THE STATE OF THE ART FOR SCHIZOPHRENIA. PLEASE INQUIRE TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS: CONTACTJF@HUSH.COM BELOW IS A SAMPLE OF THE DA&RH SHOWING SATAN'S NUMBER SYSTEM WHICH JESUS USES AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS PROCESS. These spirits will be administered at a personal time so as to not expose Jesus to him or her. At home for example; in the form of a supernatural occurrence. They will enter through the eyes with a prompt saying "Always look into the light". These spirits are invisible to human eyes remember, even the individual inflicted. Although, when this spirit exits, this person can see black emanating from the eyes in small amounts. It can also exit in the form of light through the eyes that is only visible to this particular human.When someone is inflicted, they usually have overly red faces, seem to talk to themselves, hear a voice often times, and their lives are destroyed. Also, they can change physically and mentally. These individuals often are homeless because of it, or house-less. They also can be found at libraries, parks, grocery stores and corner sidewalks; wanderers, etc.... Although, it can inflict what is to normally be believed as a normal individual with employment, family, etc.... SPIRIT ATTACHMENTS Description: Picture a sunflower, now picture a cloud in a similar shape with a chin , very small upper lip and no eyes. The reason for NO EYES IS THAT THEY USE YOUR EYES TO SEE. Anyway, this is the system used to "temp to you"/"attack you" and could lead to a schizophrenia symptom inflicted by Jesus Christ. This process can take many months What happens is this: you will start to see numbers which Jesus allows for you to see them thru you. So, you will notice numbers in a row starting to appear on electronic devices such as cell phone, car stereo, stove; in general any device that has minimum of three 3 digits. These numbers have these meanings: 1 = “GOD” 2 = Significant other 3 = Career Aspiration 4 = Having no Money 5 = Pursuing career 6 = “NO” 7 = “YES” or “GOD” 8 = Having Money 9 = Emergency (for example: the 911 tragedy; September 11,2001 OR 911) Could be viewed as (on electronic devices): 111 222 333 444 555 710 911 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 1011 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 300 301 304 305 306 307 308 309 310 315 317 400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407 and so on……… These numbers can also run together to create minute sentences or meanings within: Combinations: 1017 1018 1019 1247 1207 1235 1119 1110 1112 1117 and so on…………

    • @Ray Austin It might be good to look at what the Church teaches about homosexuality. Homosexuality, in and of itself, is not a sin. If the person is living a celibate life and adhering to Church teaching on this matter, then he or she probably has not done anything wrong. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC): "Homosexual persons are called to chastity" (para. 2359). Also, they are to be. "accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. … These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition." (para. 2358). . Would be good to talk with your pastor or your spiritual director about your concerns.

  • Thank you for writing this article on the three reasons Mary helps our loved ones who have left the church. I am mother of six children... five of whom are not practicing their faith. It is quite a cross for me. My 3 boys were altar servers: one of them, Michael, saved a $7000 church collection from being robbed; my three girls were lecturers; one also taught CCD too. Please pray for our family as well as my three Granddaughters. Thank you for your "Fiat" to Christ! Sincerely, Arlene

  • Yes, I do have two nieces and their families changed their outlook on the catholic faith. Ma. Erigen & family had changed to Iglesia de Cristo, and the other niece, Graciela & family to the MORMONS. Their Mothers passed away for a long time. they lived in the other country that I can't make a follow-up on them. Sister Theresa please keep them in all your daily prayers. In His merciful love, Lorie C Weeden
