Dear Family of Mary!
April 25, 2016 “Dear children! My Immaculate Heart bleeds as I look at you in sin and sinful habits. I am calling you: return to God and to prayer that it may be good for you on earth. God is calling you through me for your hearts to be hope and joy for all those who are far away. May my call be for you a balm for the soul and heart so that you may glorify God, the Creator, who loves you and is calling you to eternity. Little children, life is short; you, make good use of this time and do what is good. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Recently I watched a short video about Dr. Audrey Evans, a doctor who has lived her entire life as a pediatric oncologist. (Here is the
interview with Dr. Evans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hstjG19OjkA ) She said in the interview that she was called to be a doctor and to “care for sick children” from an early age. She has lived that call for over 60 years, giving herself to the task of curing children and helping their families deal with cancer.
When she talked about the call she received, she said that it was for her a call from God, and it was her great joy. I was amazed at her commitment to this huge task. She has discovered many cures and even co-founded the Ronald McDonald Houses for the families of the sick children. An amazing story. Millions of people have been helped by her answer to that call.
I realized that one person answering one call can make a huge difference in the world. Huge!!
We have been called by God, through Our Lady. “God is calling you through me for your hearts to be hope and joy for all those who are far away.” She has been giving us that call, bit by bit, through her messages in Medjugorje. This call is a serious and important call. It is the call to holiness, to save souls.
Who knows how many millions of souls could be saved by our commitment to her call?
Thank you for having responded to her call!!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
