The State of Virginity

The State of Virginity
I should like you to be free of all worries. The unmarried man is busy with the Lord's affairs, concerned with pleasing the Lord; but the married man is busy with this world's demands and occupied with pleasing his wife. This means he is divided. The virgin - indeed, any unmarried woman - is concerned with things of the Lord, in pursuit of holiness in body and spirit. The married woman, on the other hand, has the cares of this world to absorb her and concerned with pleasing her husband. I am going into this with you for your own good. I have no desire to place restrictions on you, but I do want to promote what is good, what will help you to devote yourselves entirely to the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:32-35

TO THE MOTHER AND QUEEN OF PEACE


We come to you Dear Mother
From all parts of the world;
We bring you our problems
And with them our desires

Look on us, console us,
Lay your hands upon us;
Intercede for us with your Son.
Mother of peace, pray for us.

The whole church looks to you,
The last star of salvation;
Purify us, embrace us,
With all our hearts we pray to you.

Your little Bijakovo
And all Medjugorje
Together spread your glory
And exalt your name

For all the love dear Mother
You have poured out to us here,
We promise you in the future
To be better than we were.

Father Stanko Vasilj
