We recently got an email from my mom-in-law sharing the testimony of Catalina Rivas of Bolivia about how Jesus and Mary guided her through the mass. It was so beautiful and enlightening. I highly recommend that everyone read this testimony. I promise it’ll help improve your participation of mass. My husband read the story first and came to me, urging me to put the information into a missal form that he could take to mass. There was no way he could remember all the things Jesus and Mary taught otherwise. I thought about how true that was because it wasn’t the first time I had read this testimony and there was much more I still needed to change.
My sister is a huge advocate of the movie ‘The Greatest Miracle‘ which is an animation movie based on these revelations to Catalina. The movie is a great way to introduce the message to children. My children especially love the parts where the devil tries to distract the people and how praying well makes them disappear. I love everything that motivates their better participation at mass.
So with the help of my husband’s gentle nudges during the crazy time of life when you bring a newborn home, I was able to make the missal into a booklet form.
