LIFE: American Inventor Winner Is Janusz Liberkowski !!

Janusz Liberkowski - American Inventor - ABC TV

The Anecia Survival Capsule Commercial - ABC TV
My grandparents were immigrants to Hawai`i, then a territory of America. Just as they left their homeland for a better life, so did Janusz Liberkowski from Poland. I'm not big on TV, just as Our Lady advises, but I did watch this reality TV series with great interest. I've been rooting for Janusz and I think so was Pope John Paul II for his countryman.

Why? Because, Janusz, 52, turned his personal tragedy into something good for others. He is a Los Gatos, California mechanical engineer who immigrated from Poland. He and his wife are parents of twins. They lost their older daughter, Anecia, in a car accident seven years ago. Out of love and in her memory, he became passionate about child safety and became an inventor.

The Anecia Survival Capsule, a spherical safety car seat, is designed to protect an infant's neck. Named after the daughter he lost, the infant car seat is one in which the baby is nested inside spheres designed to move with the baby - in four directions - to lesson the pressure on the neck in the first moments of a car crash. In a collision, the spheres spin and automatically position the child’s neck and back so that they are perpendicular to the impact force, thus shielding the baby from the destructive force of the impact.

He just won a million dollars to use on taking the invention to market and one of the biggest safety seat manufacturers, Evenflo, stepped forward to help him perfect his invention. He will be given the opportunity and the engineering resources of Evenflow to make his product a reality and save the lives of many children. Liberkowski beat out thousands of hopefuls across the nation with his invention on the ABC-TV reality show, American Inventor, which sought to find and market the next new best-selling product.

With God's Help, Janusz Liberkowski's revolutionary invention won't just improve the quality of life, it will save countless lives in auto collisions. It has the potential of saving three babies' lives DAILY!

Thank God for immigrants to America!

VIDEO & NEWS: Pittsburgh, PA: Miracle Pilgrimage

Cathy Howe - Medjugorje pilgrim
From WTAE TV in Pennsylvania:

Click here to view an informative video that accompanies a news account of a recent group led by a Duquesne University professor and documentary producer Dennis Woytek. The video captured the pilgrimage of 30 local people to Medjugorje.

Interviewed in the video, Cathy Howe has made 11 trips there, repeatedly returning to aid the war refugees there, summarizes Medjugorje well:

    "Our Lady is our mother and the best is truly yet to come. She wants people to return to God. We are all little children. We are the walking wounded. We all need healing in ways we don't even know. Jesus put His mother in Medjugorje who knows all our hidden places, all the places we need hugged, and the wounds that we are not able to heal ourselves."


For Cathy, Medjugorje is a place of giving thanks and receiving hope.

    "That's what Medjugorje is to me. It's hope eternal.. It's women with weathered faces in long black babushkas. With young people in droves coming together every evening for three hours, giving up their seats in church to people visitors from all over the world. Medjugorje is peace. It is a joy you feel like you're home."


She is just one of the many people who say they've been deeply touched by their experience there. She calls the little village left untouched by bombings in a war-ravaged country a holy land.

Happy Mother's Day!

My mom, Mary, age 81, Island of Hawai'i
Our MOM -- Mary, Our Mother, age ~2000+, Heaven
Mother's Day Greetings!

We may each have our one and only earthly Mom, but we all have in common, our MOM -- Mary, Our Mother.

Today, Mother's Day, I will call my earthly mother thousands of miles away and let her know I love her. With MOM, I can talk to her directly; she's just a breath away. I'll pray the Rosary for MOM, the best way to tell her that I love her.

Even if I am older than MOM was when she was assumed into Heaven, I am still her child and I love how she addresses us as her "little children." I think I will sing her these words that I learned as a little child. My singing hasn't improved in the intervening years... She's a mother; she'll love me anyway:


"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's (never) growing old,
"T" is for the tears she sheds to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER," a word that means the world to me.

Please join me.

In God's Light,
D/ Peace Pilgrim, CA & HI


"Dear children! Today I call you to be my extended hands in this world that puts God in the last place. You, little children, put God in the first place in your life. God will bless you and give you strength to bear witness to Him, the God of love and peace. I am with you and intercede for all of you. Little children, do not forget that I love you with a tender love. Thank you for having responded to my call." ~Mary,Our Mother, 2/25/05

Our Lady of Fatima: JOHN PAUL II & THE THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA

 
 
The Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, reportedly believed that Medjugorje is the continuation of Fatima. And according to the Medjugorje visionaries, Mary's messages are intended for the entire world. Worldwide spiritual events and tribulations are rapidly increasing, but Our Lady tells us we have nothing to fear, as long as we have faith in God.\""

According to Mirjana, one of the six Medjugorje seers:

"It was said to Marija [another seer]. Our Lady told her, 'What I have started at Fatima I will finish at Medjugorje.'" In fact if she ever visits another major Marian shrine, said Mirjana, it will be Fatima because "it is so simple.". "It was said to Marija [another seer]. Our Lady told her, 'What I have started at Fatima I will finish at Medjugorje.'" In fact if she ever visits another major Marian shrine, said Mirjana, it will be Fatima because "it is so simple." ~Source

From Encounter with the Queen of Peace:

"It has often been said that Medjugorje is the fulfillment of Fatima. Whereas Fatima was the herald of the dawn of Communism, Medjugorje was the herald of its dusk. Both apparitions contributed to the demise of Communism, Fatima in unleashing a worldwide campaign of prayer and the subsequent papal consecration of Russia, and Medjugorje in bringing about a worldwide religious revival from the middle of a Communist country (many of the most devout pilgrims came from other countries behind the Iron Curtain).

The Medjugorje messages made the first direct reference to Fatima after the failed coup of August 22, 1991. In her August 25, 1991, message, the Gospa said, "I invite you to renunciation for nine days so that with your help, everything I wanted to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima may be fulfilled."

The relation between Medjugorje and Fatima was most clearly discerned by the countries in which Russia had "spread its errors." Cardinal Frantizek Tomasek, the late archbishop of Prague and former Communist concentration camp inmate, said Medjugorje "fills me with a great inner joy, fills me with a great inner power." In a 1988 interview with Medjugorge Gebetsaktion, he said, "Personally, I am convinced that Medjugorje is the continuation of Lourdes and Fatima. Step by step, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. And I am also deeply convinced that Medjugorje is a sign for this."

From QUEEN Magazine, published by the Montfort Fathers-Bayshore, New York September, l983:

The German magazine "Stimme des Glaubens," has published the following account of Pope John Paul II's interview, with a small group of German Catholics, on the occasion of his visit to Fuida, in November of 1980. We are reproducing it here for the benefit of our readers.

THE QUESTION: "Holy Father, what has become of the 3rd Secret of Fatima? According to Our Lady's instructions, wasn't it supposed to be revealed in 1960? And what will happen in the Church?"

THE HOLY FATHER'S RESPONSE: "Because of the seriousness of its contents, in order not to encourage the world wide power of Communism to carry out certain coups, my Prederessors in the Chair of Peter have diplomatically preferred to withhold its publication.

"On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much: if there is a message in which it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the earth; that, from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish...there is no longer any point in really wanting to publish this secret message.

"Many want to know merely out of curiosity, or because of their taste for sensationalism, but they forget that 'to know' implies for them a responsibility. It is dangerous to want to satisfy one's curiosity only, if one is convinced that we can do nothing aganst a catastrophe that has been predicted."

At this point, the Holy Father took hold of his Rosary and said: "Here is the remedy against the evil! Pray, pray and ask for nothing else. Put everything in the hands of the Mother of God!"

Then he went on to say:

    "We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-to-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because it is only in this way that the Church can be effectively renewed. How many times, indeed, has the renewal of the Church been effected in blood? This time, again, it will not be otherwise.

    We must be strong, we must prepare ourselves, we must entrust ourselves to Christ and to His holy Mother, and we must be attentive, very attentive, to the prayer of the Rosary."


>> Msgr. Pearse Lacey, Retired Bishop of Toronto (Canada): "Medjugorje . . . a continuation of Fatima."
