On Thursday October 7, 2010 one of the moderators of our weekly conference call drove from Oregon to California for a job. Her real name is "Mary", but her nickname is "Dede". As our call was about to begin she shared the good fortune of how the rental car company messed up the order and she got upgraded to a new white Mercedes SUV for the same price as a compact.
And the license plate was 89 522. I'm not sure of if it was an Oregon plate.
But here goes...
89 is the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4
89 + 522 = 611
23 "I (9) Am (14)" cycles of 611 (14053) days prior to 20101007 brings us back to 19720416 which was/is Day ONE (1) of the 23rd year for the birth of Rose, a dear lady who hails from my birthstate of Michigan. Rose inspired me to pray the Rosary and I have been praying the Rosary most every day since I first began praying it on 20010910. I will connect the Rosary into this post with more detail below.
ONE (1) cycle of 611 days from 20101007 brings us to 20120609 which was/is Day ONE (1) of the 23rd year since my wife (Maribeth) and I married on 1990.
23 "I (9) Am (14)" cycles of 611 (14053) days from 20101007 brings us to 20490329 which will be the 277th anniversary of the passing/ascension of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who was one of the greatest mathematicians-scientists-inventors-theologians in world history. 277 is the prime of "Divine Love" as follows:
Divine (494955) Love (3645) = 498600 = 277 prime X 1800
The end of the 1205th cycle of 611 days since the birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ - August 11th in 6 BC - fell on 20100528 which was/is EXACTLY 132 days prior to October 7, 2010. 132 divides by 2 into 66 which is always 23 "I (9) Am (14)" from 89 which is the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4. 132 is ONE (1) plus 131 which is the prime of ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5.
66 days from 20100528 brings us to 20100802 which is two (2) X 89 = 178 days from 20100205 which was/is my 52nd birthday.
20100802 is EXACTLY Leo (356) days from August 11th, 2009 which is the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ.
And this is the 178th post on this blog. 178 factors into two (2) X 89 "Prime of Leo (356)".
So we have Rose and two Marys - in the form of "Mary" and "Maribeth" and a beautiful white SUV. That's pretty good company inside a very nice set of wheels.
One final note....
October 7, 2010 was the 439th anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto:
The Battle of Lepanto took place on 7 October 1571 when a fleet of the Holy League, a coalition of Spain (including its territories of Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Venice, the Papacy, the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and others, decisively defeated the main fleet of the Ottoman Empire.
The Holy League credited the victory to the Virgin Mary, whose intercession with God they had implored for victory through the use of the Rosary. Andrea Doria had kept a copy of the miraculous image of our Our Lady of Guadalupe given to him by King Philip II of Spain in his ship's state room. Pope Pius V instituted a new Catholic feast day of Our Lady of Victory to commemorate the battle, which is now celebrated by the Catholic Church as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Note: Thanks to Rose and the inspiration of the Rosary and the Blessed Virgin Mary for the past 3 years I have organized an annual "One For Mary Prayer Walk" here on the north shore of Chicago
