November 27, 2019 Reflection – May this be a time of prayer for you.

(c)Mary TV 2017 November 27, 2019 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.
