Practicing the Presence of the Divine Indwelling

Our Lady of America told Sister Mildred that the Divine Indwelling “was her life and she lived it perfectly always conscious of His presence.” How do we practice the presence of the Divine Indwelling on a daily basis? How can we do this in our technological age with the noise of radios, televisions, computers and Iphones? We must have a site, silence and solitude. These are the three requisites of regularly practicing the presence of the Divine Indwelling on a daily basis. We also need method and discipline.

September 15, we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. Let us meditate on the seven sorrows of Mary: from the prophecy of Simeon at the Presentation of the baby Jesus in the Temple; from her flight into Egypt with Joseph and the baby Jesus; from her losing her child Jesus in the Temple; from meeting Jesus on his way to Calvary; from standing at the foot of his Cross; from viewing Jesus being taken from the Cross; and from viewing his burial.

This is the fourth of six articles on the Practice of the Divine Indwelling. They will be published each Thursday from the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to the 63rd Anniversary of Our Lady of America’s first apparition on September 26.

Our prayer should not be limited to petitions to God and meditation on His Word. “This form of prayerful reflection is of great value, but Christian prayer should go further: to the knowledge of the love of the Lord Jesus, to union with Him.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2708).

Daily Living of the Divine Indwelling

"This should not come as a surprise to somebody. They should not walk into their place of work and have to do something that they're clearly opposed to!"
 
That’s what my daughter, Maggie Eisenbarth, mother of nine and the Respect Life Coordinator for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington, Vermont, said after the Federal Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a Notice of Violation on August 28th against the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC), Vermont’s largest hospital.

The Mystery of the Divine Indwelling

How does this Divine Indwelling happen? Jesus Christ, true God and true Man with the Holy Trinity is conceived (infused is more accurate) in us through our Baptism by the will of the Father and the power of the Holy Spirit through the mediation of Mary our mother. Christ is “formed within us,” as St. Paul says, (Galatians 4:19) by Mary’s mediation. She who mediated Christ’s formation and Divine Indwelling in herself, also mediates His Divine Indwelling in us by God’s grace. As Jesus’ human nature was conceived in her, so our share in the divine nature is conceived in us by her mediation. Our Lady of America said, “I am the Mother of the sacred humanity.”

On August 29, we remember the Passion of St. John the Baptist. He publicly confronted King Herod Antipas and told him that it was not right for him to live in adultery with Herodias.
 
The king got drunk at his birthday party and watched Salome, Herodias’ daughter, dance lewdly before him. In his passion, he promised to give her anything that she wanted. She asked her mother what she should ask of the king and she replied, “The head of John the Baptist on a platter.” The king granted her wish and beheaded the innocent St. John who died as a martyr for the truth.

This is the first of six articles on the Practice of the Divine Indwelling. They will be published each Thursday from the Feast of the Queenship of Mary to the 63rd Anniversary of Our Lady of America’s first apparition on September 26.

Sister Mildred, the mystic of the devotion to Our Lady of America, wrote that on the evening of August 5, 1957, “Our Lady spoke to me about the Divine Indwelling. It was her life and she lived it perfectly always conscious of His presence, never forgetting that all her greatness came from within, from Him who dwelt there, working, loving, and doing good through her. This is what Our Lady means when she speaks of reformation, renewal. It is this about which she is so concerned, namely sanctification from within. . . . She seemed anxious to impress me with some idea of the greatness of this gift of God to us, namely, His Divine Presence within our souls through sanctifying grace.”

The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In his encyclical Ad Caeli Reginam, (To the Queen of Heaven) Pope Pius XII wrote, The Blessed Virgin Mary should be called Queen, not only because of her Divine Motherhood, but also because God has willed her to have an exceptional role in the work of our eternal salvation.
 
Our Lady of America identified herself to Sister Mildred, the mystic, and said, “I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land.” She appeared as our Queen wearing her crown, manifesting her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart and holding out to us the lily of purity.

In 1976, St. John Paul II, when he was Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, was in the United States at the Eucharistic Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In his address, he warned us, “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel, between Christ and the Antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously.”

Archbishop Sheen’s Beatification Miracle                            

Bonnie Engstrom asked for help from Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as she watched lifesaving measures being taken for her son, who had been born at home just moments before without a pulse or drawing breath.

After 61 minutes, just as emergency room personnel were about to pronounce him dead, he began to breathe and his heart rate shot up to a normal level for a newborn. Despite a dire prognosis for his future, the boy has thrived and is now a healthy 8-year-old who likes chicken nuggets, Star Wars and riding his bicycle.
