October 16, 2019 – Adore my Son with me!
(c)Mary TV / Anthony Zubac 2019 October 16, 2019St. HedwigSt. Margaret Mary Alacoque Dear Family of Mary! “…My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me and love Him above all. Always strive to live in His truth…” (October 2, 2019) Sometimes in a message Our Lady will say something simple that could be overlooked. In this message she said, “My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me…” And immediately as I read those words, I felt a rush of joy! I had an image of the outdoor altar behind St. James Church, surrounded by thousands of pilgrims, in the dark, with the lights pointed on the huge monstrance on the altar which was holding the large Eucharistic Host. Thousands of pilgrims were silently gazing upon Jesus. Thousands of hearts were growing silent and opening to the rays of grace that flow from that Host. Thousands of minds were quieting, allowing the peace that only God can give, to penetrate them. Thousands of memories were being healed. Thousands of souls were being bathed in grace, allowing God to renew them. All in silence. All in the company of one woman, the Mother who adores with us. I believe that the grace of Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is augmented by the presence of Mary. She told us once: “Tonight also, dear children, I am grateful to you in a special way for being here. Unceasingly adore the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I am always present when the faithful are adoring. Special graces are then being received.” March 15, 1984 Our Lady is always present when the faithful adore Jesus. But in Medjugorje, God has allowed her to be present in a very powerful way. She truly is in Medjugorje. And so, when we adore Jesus in Medjugorje, exposed on the Altar, we receive special graces! The Mother is adoring with us and praying for us. Her maternal presence helps us to focus on Jesus, to be at peace so we can receive His love. Her maternal care creates great trust in our hearts, so that we open to the Lord in a natural and childlike manner. Her motherly love teaches us how to love Jesus, to love our neighbor and to even love ourselves. We are transformed by such a moment with Jesus! Last week Mary TV began airing Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, live, daily from the Adoration Chapel in Medjugorje. It is a half hour of silent adoration. It is aired between Hour of Mercy and the Daily Rosary – 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm Medjugorje time each day except Sunday. Here is a response we received after the first live adoration: Dear Denis and Cathy -Thank you so much for the live stream of adoration this morning!!! The grace that poured into my home was overwhelming. I do not understand what happened, but it did happen, and I can only hope that the whole meaning will be revealed as I pray about it. God Bless you and that amazing crew you have!!! Sincerely – J.R. I have that same experience every day now. Grace just pours into my home and my heart each day during that ½ hour of Adoration. I believe it is especially powerful because Our Lady is adoring with us, praying for us and inspiring us to open to her Son. And of course Mary TV also has the joy of streaming Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after the Evening Program in Medjugorje, on Tuesday night, Thursday night and often Saturday night! Like the thousands who adore Jesus at night in Medjugorje, we can all adore Jesus with Mary at our side, adoring with us!! Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament changes the world! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!Cathy Nolan©Mary TV 2019
