Love one another!
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2016 J.M.J. January 12, 2017 St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Dear Family of Mary! “…Therefore, my apostles, always love one another and above all, love my Son. This is the only way to salvation, to eternal life. This is my dearest prayer which fills my heart with the most beautiful scent of roses….” (January 2, 2017) Our Lady wants us to be apostles of love. This is what will make her happy. She is our Mother. She was given that role by Jesus on the Cross, and she has lived it perfectly all these many years. She loves us with her tender and perfect heart. And she suffers when she sees us fighting among each other, envying each other, rejecting each other and even destroying each other. Imagine having children who hate each other. Imagine what it would feel like. Our Lady suffers under the weight of all the violence and pain her children cause each other. She is our Mother. Truly our Mother. She wants us to love each other. And most of all she wants us to love Jesus. He is the one who loves us the most. And yet we reject Him, again and again, in favor of our own selfish desires. Imagine how she must feel! But she never gives up. She never stops calling us to love one another and to love Jesus. She will never give up. This is the way to eternal life, this road of love. We will find our way to heaven through love of Jesus and of our neighbor. It is that simple. Our Lady also said these things about love: September 2, 2008 “Dear children, Today, with my motherly heart, I call you gathered around me to love your neighbor. My children, stop. Look in the eyes of your brother and see Jesus, my Son. If you see joy, rejoice with him. If there is pain in the eyes of your brother, with your tenderness and goodness, cast it away, because without love you are lost. Only love is effective; it works miracles. Love will give you unity in my Son and victory of my heart. Therefore, my children, love.” September 2, 2015 “Dear children, my dear apostles of love, my carriers of truth, again I am calling you and gathering you around me to help me, to help all of my children who thirst for love and truth – who thirst for my Son. I am a grace from the Heavenly Father, sent to help you to live the word of my Son. Love one another. I lived your earthly life. I know that it is not always easy, but if you will love each other, you will pray with the heart, you will reach spiritual heights and the way to heaven will be opened for you. I, your mother, am waiting for you there because I am there. Be faithful to my Son and teach others faithfulness. I am with you. I will help you. I will teach you faith that you may know how to transmit it to others in the right way. I will teach you truth that you may know how to discern. I will teach you love that you may come to know what real love is. My children, my Son will make it so as to speak through your words and your actions. Thank you.” May we rededicate ourselves to love, love first for Jesus, and then for our neighbor. 2017 will be a year of great victory, if we do so! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
