Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer for you. Without God you do not have peace. Therefore, little children, pray for peace in your hearts and families, so that Jesus can be born in you and give you His love and blessing. The world is at war because hearts are full of hatred and jealousy. In the eyes, little children, peacelessness is seen because you have not permitted Jesus to be born in your lives. Seek Him, pray, and He will give Himself to you in the Child who is joy and peace. I am with you and I pray for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (November 25, 2019)



Mother Teresa of Calcutta spoke about prayer and the connection between prayer in the family and peace. Here is a transcript of an old video in which she spoke about prayer and its fruit:

St. Teresa of Calcutta:

Where does this love begin? In our own family. In our own home…

How does it begin? By praying together.

The family that prays together stays together.

And if you stay together, you will love one another. As God loves each one of you.

Today in the world there is so much suffering…because of the want of prayer, of unity in the family.

So today when we are together, let us make one strong resolution that we will bring prayer into our family.

That we will teach our children to pray.

And pray with them.

And you will see the joy and the love and the peace that will come into your heart.

Because the fruit of prayer is a deepening of faith.

And the fruit of faith is love.

And the fruit of love is service.

And the fruit of service is peace.

Works of love are works of peace.

That is why let us bring the tender love of God in our family.
(St. Teresa of Calcutta)

Dear Family of Mary!

   
Here is the message from Our Lady for November 25, 2019:


“Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer for you. Without God you do not have peace. Therefore, little children, pray for peace in your hearts and families, so that Jesus can be born in you and give you His love and blessing.

The world is at war because hearts are full of hatred and jealousy. In the eyes, little children, peacelessness is seen because you have not permitted Jesus to be born in your lives.

Seek Him, pray, and He will give Himself to you in the Child who is joy and peace. I am with you and I pray for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Dear Family of Mary!

   
This is the last reflection before we receive the message on November 25. I like to prayerfully reread the previous month’s message while anticipating the new one. So, here is the October 25, 2019 message:

“Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. May prayer be a balm to your soul, because the fruit of prayer is joy, giving and witnessing God to others – through your life. Little children, in complete surrender to God, He will take care of everything and will bless you; and your sacrifices will have meaning. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (October 25, 2019)


This message means so much to me. These past few months have been full of societal upheaval. It would be easy to lose our peace in such a tumultuous time. But Our Lady simply calls us to prayer. “May prayer be a balm to your soul…” She tells us that God will take care of everything…He will bless us…and all the tough times we go through will have meaning. And to top it off, she says, “I will be with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing.”


We are covered with protection and grace through Our Lady’s blessing and guidance. In gratitude, we look forward to her message on November 25!

 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

A Baptism!  Such a wonderful moment of presentation!!

November 21, 2019
The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Dear Family of Mary!

On this day we remember the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple. Though this event is not part Scripture itself, it is an accepted part of the Catholic Tradition. Our Lady, as a young girl, was offered to God by her parents, Sts. Joachim and Anne. She was taken to the Temple where she lived for a while, serving and learning about the Lord. We can only imagine how precious and loving she was as a child. She must have soaked up everything about the Jewish tradition during that time.

Mary’s time in the temple prepared her to be the “Handmaid of the Lord” who later in her life would so readily offer herself to the Father when the Angel Gabriel came to announce the plan of God, that she become the Mother of His Son.

The idea of presentation exists in our own lives as Catholics. At our Baptism, each of us is presented by our parents to the priest, as a representative of the Church, to be received into the family of God. And at our First Communion, after our first Confession, we are presented to the Church in order to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. And then at Confirmation, we are presented to the Bishop, to receive the Holy Spirit as we enter adulthood as Catholics.

These presentations are signal moments in our lives. They tell us who we are as Catholics and they provide for us the necessary saving grace we need to follow Jesus.

Our Lady has spoken several times in her messages about presenting us to her Son. Here is one message:

December 25, 1995 “Dear Children! Today I also rejoice with you and I bring you little Jesus, so that He may bless you. I invite you, dear children, so that your life may be united with Him. Jesus is the King of Peace and only He can give you the peace that you seek. I am with you and I present you to Jesus in a special way, now in this new time in which one should decide for Him. This time is the time of grace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


Our Mother tells us that she is presenting us to Jesus “in a special way, now in this new time in which one should decide for Him.” It is almost as if she, as our Mother, is presenting us to Jesus, for us to receive from Him the graces we need for this new time. Just as we were presented for Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation, she is presenting us to Jesus for the special graces that we will need in this time we are in.

I don’t mean to equate this presentation with a sacrament. No, we have all we need from the Church already. But there are special gifts that we could certainly use, such as an increase of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.   There are also Fruits of the Holy Spirit that we desperately need: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. Our Lady presents us to Jesus so that He can give us what we need in these days to remain faithful and secure, so that we can help Our Lady to reach all the souls who do not yet know her Son.

So when Our Lady tells us she is presenting us to her Son, we should get excited! It means we are being brought before Jesus to be given Gifts and Fruits!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Thousands pray with Our Lady for the 38th Anniversary

November 20, 2019

Dear Family of Mary!

June 25, 2006 “Dear children! With great joy in my heart I thank you for all the prayers that, in these days, you offered for my intentions. Know, little children, that you will not regret it, neither you nor your children. God will reward you with great graces and you will merit eternal life. I am near you and thank all those who, through these years, have accepted my messages, have poured them into their life and decided for holiness and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


This message from 2006 continues to amaze me. This message was given on the 25th Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje. Our Lady was looking back over 25 years of her presence in Medjugorje. She was recalling 25 years of apparitions to the visionaries and 25 years of messages to the villagers and the pilgrims.

The Lord had allowed her to come every day for those 25 years, to teach us to pray and to convert. And for those 25 years Our Lady had been building a furnace of prayer in Medjugorje, a powerhouse of prayer that was centered at the parish church, with the Rosary, Holy Mass, Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, Confession, Veneration of the Holy Cross, and countless novenas and special prayers prayed day in and out in Medjugorje!

She also built a prayer program on the mountains, where parishioners and pilgrims climb, do penance, and pray in silence while meditating on the Mysteries of the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross. Truly the entire village is a place of prayer now, due to Our Lady’s guiding hand, teaching us all how to pray.

And in this message on the 25th Anniversary, she thanked us all for having prayed for her intentions. Having taught us how to pray, Our Lady was now able to reap the fruit of that prayer. Her intentions for the salvation of souls throughout the world were being lifted up by our prayers.

She told us, and tells us, that we will not regret it! In the future we will not be full of regret at spending our time praying for her intentions. On the contrary, we and our children will be jubilant! We will receive great rewards from God for having helped Mary in her task of saving souls in these days. In fact, by cooperating with Our Lady’s plan we will merit eternal life!!!

Eternal life!!! Nothing matters more than attaining eternal life with God in Heaven. Nothing compares to living forever with our God.

I believe we are still called to pray for Our Lady’s intentions, 13 years later. The work is not finished. In fact, if we look at the world, it would seem the job will never end! But it will. We are on the winning side with Mary. She has come to change the world. And we can help her still, by praying for her intentions.

Denis and I find that we now keep the Mary TV channel going all day long in our home. And when our work permits, we pray along with the rosaries, pray along with the English Mass, pray along with the whole evening program including adoration…we just pray along with the parish all day long. While doing this we are praying for Our Lady’s intentions in these days. And it is wonderful!

God bless all of you, our shipmates, for making Mary TV a reality. And may we all accept Our Lady’s messages, and pour them into our lives, deciding for holiness and peace and responding to her call!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
