Life Triumphed; My Son is alive!

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Out of love, the Blood of my Son was shed for you. That Precious Blood is for your salvation, for eternal life. The Heavenly Father created man for eternal happiness. It is not possible-for you who know the love of my Son and who follow Him-to die. Life triumphed; my Son is alive. Therefore, my children, apostles of my love, may prayer show you the way and the means of spreading the love of my Son-prayer in the most exalted form.” (May 2, 2019)

In this beautiful passage from Our Lady’s May 2, 2019 message, she tells us about our destiny. It is a destiny that we can scarcely take in. We are created to live forever with God in heaven. And the Son became man in order to accomplish that destiny for us. He came to rectify our sins and open the doors to heaven for us on the last day when we are raised.

She tells us we cannot possibly die if we know the love of Jesus and follow Him. Jesus IS life!! And He gives Himself to us as our heavenly food, the food of eternity, so that we will rise with Him and go to the Father.

“Life triumphed; my Son is alive!” This is our hope! This is our truth! Jesus lives, and He loves us!! We are going to live with Him forever!

In the Gospel for today, Jesus tells the crowd this very truth. He is the Bread of Life! But they don’t believe Him. We are now that crowd, and we have a chance to believe Him and say Yes:

Jesus said to the crowds,
“I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.
But I told you that although you have seen me,
you do not believe.
Everything that the Father gives me will come to me,
and I will not reject anyone who comes to me,
because I came down from heaven not to do my own will
but the will of the one who sent me.
And this is the will of the one who sent me,
that I should not lose anything of what he gave me,
but that I should raise it on the last day.
For this is the will of my Father,
that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him
may have eternal life,
and I shall raise him on the last day.” (Jn 6: 35-40)

Jesus, we see you in the Eucharist and we believe in You! We love You and will follow You! We believe that you will raise us on the last day and bring us home to the Father! Alleluia!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
